Kate Middleton and Prince William Announce Son’s Christening Date!

For the record:

Meghan Markle is not pregnant. Do not believe everything that you read.

But this doesn’t mean there isn’t some major Royal Baby news to announce.

Prince William and Kate Middleton confirmed on Wednesday that their eight-week-old son will be christened on Monday, July 9.

Remember Prince Louis?!?

His exciting birth has almost been forgotten about amidst the excitement of Prince Harry getting married and Pippa Middleton telling the world that she is pregnant with her first child.

But he’s still here, still adorable and about to take a significant step in his life.

“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are pleased to announce that the christening of Prince Louis will take place on Monday 9th July at The Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace, London,” Kensington Palace said in a statement this morning.

Following in the very cute footsteps of his brother and sister, Louis’ service will be conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby, who christened Prince George in October 2013 and Princess Charlotte in July 2015.

This same man most recently officiated Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding on May 19.

Three-year old Charlotte was christened at Sandringham’s St. Mary Magdalene church in Norfolk.

This is the the same church where her late grandmother, the beloved Princess Diana, was also christened.

The ceremony for four-year old George, meanwhile, was held at St. James’s Palace‘s Chapel Royal.

The Chapel Royal, where Louis’ service will also be, also happens to be where the Duchess of Sussex had her own baptism earlier this year.

Don’t worry. There won’t be a quiz on this later.

At the moment, no further details are known about the christening, but you can expect the Royal Family to release some lovely portraits from the happy day.

Kate and William presented their third child’s name to the world in late April.

He is officially His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge, with Louis having been the middle name of Queen Elizabeth II’s youngest child, Prince Edward (otherwise known as Edward Antony Richard Louis).

We haven’t heard a whole lot from William and Kate about their son since they welcomed him into the world, not since William said that the newborn was sleeping relatively well.

That must be quite the relief.

This may be the last update we receive for awhile, though, as William and Middleton have done an outstanding job of shielding their kids from the public.

It’s always a huge deal when one is born and we get to enjoy a number of photos such as the ones above and below.

But then Kensington Palace works with the couple to make sure no paparazzi have access to various private family areas and the proud parents themselves do everything possible to ensure this same sort of privacy.

They only choose occasions such as this christening to share news with their millions of fans around the world.

Which is how it should be, right?

We’d love to have new Louis photos everyday, but the kid should absolutely grow up in as much peace as possible, given his circumstances in life.


Alan O’Neil Dies; Sons of Anarchy Actor Was 47 Years Old

Alan O’Neil, a veteran actor best known for his role on the final two seasons of Sons of Anarchy, was found dead on Wednesday night.

He was 47 years old.

According to TMZ, O’Neil’s body was found in the hallway of her Los Angeles apartment this week, with all appearances indicating that he died very suddenly.

The actor reportedly had a history of heart problems and was also a heavy smoker.

Moreover, TMZ reports, O’Neil struggled over the years with alcohol and drug abuse.

An autopsy will be conducted at some point in the near future to determine cause of death, but law enforcement sources say no foul play is suspected at this time.

A veteran actor who has made a living in this industry since the 1990s, O’Neill is likely best known to American audiences for the role of Hugh on the aforementioned FX hit.

He portrayed this excommunicated member of the IRA for seven total episodes and even appeared on the series finale in 2014.

However, O’Neil’s longest run on a series took place in Ireland’s Fair City, on which he portrayed a main character named Keith McGrath.

He had just been cast in a horror film called Charlie Lives: The Family’s Return prior to his tragic passing.

“My good friend Alan O’Neill died today….we worked together on The Sons Of Anarchy…my condolences to his family,” actor Timothy V. Murphy Tweeted in response to O’Neil’s death this evening.

“So sad to hear of the passing of Alan O’Neill who played ‘Keith’ in Fair City,” actor Seamus Power wrote, continuing:

“Always enjoyed working with him. Rest In Peace old pal.”

“Thinking of him, his family and friends…and all his fans. Rest easy,” added a fan on social media.

This very sad loss comes just one month after another Sons of Anarchy star, David Labrava, revealed on that his 16-year-old son, Tycho Spelis Chiusano, had taken his own life after battling depression.

“Never in a million years would I think I would be posting this,” he wrote on Instagram in mid-May, adding at the time:

“This is my boy Tycho. He took his life a couple of days ago at 16 years old.

“He suffered from a depression we couldn’t see because he was a happy young kid. I am broken.”

Elsewhere, back in 2012, Sons of Anarchy Johnny Lewis was found dead at age 28.


Caitlyn Jenner: Skipping Her Own Son’s Wedding to Spoil Gal Pal Sophia Hutchins?!

We know that Caitlyn Jenner’s own family barely speaks to her. But that’s the Kardashian side of things.

On the other side, they still want her in their lives. In fact, Brody Jenner invited Cait to his wedding.

Curiously, Cait has said that she can’t attend — and a report claims that the blame for that lies at the feet of gal pal Sophia Hutchins.

From what a source tells RadarOnline, Sophia is holding Caitlyn back from attending her own son’s wedding.

“Cait can go to Brody’s wedding if she really wanted to.”

Caitlyn Jenner’s estimated net worth is somewhere in the ballpark of $ 100 million dollars. She can attend just about anything at any time.

“But she can’t and won’t because of her boss Sophia.”

That’s a bit of hyperbole, but … this source claims that Sophia has quickly become the center of Cait’s world.

According to this source, Cait is willing ot miss a major milestone in her son’s life.

“The truth is, Sophia’s Cait’s number one priority.”

This really fuels the rumors that these two are closer than ever.

“And they’re inseparable.”

Apparently, Cait and Sophia have a scheduling conflict with Brody.

“Brody’s wedding date and all the traveling screws up things that Cait already has planned with Sophia.”


This source says that it’s mostly Sophia’s cold feed that are keeping them from attending.

“Sophia wasn’t up for all the wedding extravaganza and because she wasn’t, neither was Cait.”

They say that Caitlyn indulges her much younger gal pal at every opportunity.

“Caitlyn spoils her rotten.”

Apparently the two of them share more than similar interests and a mutual love of dogs.

“Everything she wants: clothes, vacations, jewelry, all of Cait’s attention, she gets.”


That may lend some credence to the rumor that Caitlyn and Sophia are planning a wedding of their own.

We should note that, though some may have doubts about whether or not this can be blamed on Sophia, Caitlyn not attending Brody’s wedding is not fake news.

Cait has had a strained relationship with the children she had before marrying Kris Jenner.

Cait has been able to reconnect with some of her kids through a shared love of sports. Cait is an Olympian and she likes that sort of thing.

But since none of that interests Brody, their relationship has remained strained.

However, TMZ reports that Caitlyn did attend the bridal shower.

They also say that she does not disapprove of Brody’s fiancee or of the marriage.

But she told Brody that she can’t attend due to a business opportunity that she just can’t pass up.

And that has left Brody feeling very hurt.

It’s easy to lay the blame at Sophia’s feet, but it may be that, quite simply, family and family relationships are complicated.

Sophia and Caitlyn have a lot in common and are rumored to be in a relationship, but Cait could make time to go to her son’s wedding.

If she really wanted to.

Turning down an invitation or canceling plans can be stressful, but it is also a relief to not have to prepare for an awkward occassion. We totally understand that.

It’s sad that Cait won’t be attending Brody’s wedding.

It’s probably even sadder for Brody, since apparently neither Kendall nor Kylie even bothered to RSVP that they wouldn’t be coming.

Family is complicated.


Britney Spears: My Wonderful Sons Are Bigger Than Me!!

Though some misguided individuals may think that Britney Spears is an awful mother, she’s actually one of the best celebrity parents out there. Yes, really.

She treasures her time with her sons, and she’s always happy to share that on social media.

Just take a look at how much they’ve grown already. She says that they’re already bigger than she is.

Britney Spears captions this photo of her with Jayden James, 11, and Sean Preston, 12.

“Love when we go to our favorite spot on Sundays.”

She doesn’t identify where that is, and that’s totally fine. She and especially her boys are entitled to their privacy.

She follows that with the two hearts emoji and another emoji that depicts a huge, inviting stack of pancakes.

She also heaps compliments onto her growing sons.

“The boys are bigger than me now!!!!!”


(Britney Spears is 5-foot-4, so that’s not a difficult achievement; if they are like most boys and end up taller than their father, they should both eventually be over 6 feet)

Britney loves spending quality time with her boys, and in recent weeks, she has been sharing more and more of this.

Though she shares them with ex Kevin Federline, she loves to show her mother-sons activities, including glimpses of the three of them painting serenely outdoors.

“Painting feels so therapeutic to me!”

Painting is about much more than creating art. It’s about honing skills. It’s about developing an appreciation for visual details and color theory. it’s about improving hand-eye coordination.

And yes, it can absolutely be therapeutic.

“Getting to do this with my boys on a beautiful day like this is such a blessing!!!”

Britney has worked hard for the blessings that she has in life. Good for her.

After sharing another recent adorable video from her home, Britney captioned:

“Nothing makes me happier as a mom than watching these boys grow and smile and laugh!!”

Britney is goodness incarnate.

“They are my world.”

Have you ever loved someone so much that you’ve hired a math tutor to teach you how to do math so that you can help that person?

Because that’s how much Britney loves her boys. She wants to help them with her homework.

“And I love days like this when we get to just run around and play together.”

Remember, Britney worked to get where she is today. That includes her Vegas residency. She deserves this time with her boys.

And they deserve this time with their mom.

Of course, these days, you can’t talk about Britney’s boys without talking about Kevin Federline’s demands for even more of Britney’s money.

He is asking for, and this really defies belief, $ 60,000 a month in child support.

Per month.

For two children.

Children whom he only sees about half of the time. Which means that he thinks that each child, if we’re doing our math correctly, costs $ 30,000 for 15 days.

Which is $ 2,000 a day.

While many believe that Kevin Federline is hoping to use this money for himself and for his multiple other children from previous relationships, many also question why he thinks that Britney should have to pay for any of that.

Britney has gone out of her way to make sure that she can be the best mother possible for her sons.

They really are the center of her universe, which is right where every parent’s child belongs.

She has gone above and beyond to make sure that she does not repeat her own parents’ mistakes in raising her.

There’s that old video of her asking one of her sons — when they were both younger — if he wants to leave a red carpet event, and he says yes, and she has one of her people walk off with him.

She then asks her other son, who is fine with staying, and he stays with her. She lets them be their own people, not just props for her brand.

So when we see photos and videos of Jayden and Sean, Britney is sharing them out of maternal pride.


David Labrava, Sons of Anarchy Star, Mourns Teenage Son

On Thursday evening, David Labrava shared the worst news any parent can imagine with his fans:

The actor’s teenage son has committed suicide.

Best known for his role as the quiet and tough character of Happy Lowman on FX’s Sons of Anarchy, Labrava wrote the following on Facebook as confirmation:

“Never in a million tears would I think I would be posting this.

This is my boy Tycho. He took his life a couple of days ago at 16 years old. He suffered from a depression we couldnt see because he was a happy young kid.

“Communicate with your loved ones, there might not be any signs. Cherish them. I am broken.”

The caption was included along with the photo above.

It is not known at this time just how young Tycho killed himself, but that isn’t really the issue at this moment, of course.

We simply can’t fathom what Labrava and his family are going through right now.

Hired as a technical advisor on Sons of Anarchy, Labrava had been with the show since its premiere in 2008.

He actually co-wrote a Season 4 episode and also penned a best-selling book titled “Becoming A Son.”

Moreover, the actor wrote, produced, directed and starred in a first feature film titled “Street Level;” and also writes a column for Hot Rod Magazine.

He has set up a GoFundMe page in honor of 16-year old Tycho.

“On May 5th, 2018 Tycho Spelis Chiusano decided to end his life. He was 16 years old. He quietly suffered from depression for years and didn’t know how to ask for help,” reads the page.


The website continues:

An amazing and beautiful soul, Tycho was extremely intelligent, athletic, loyal, and a sensitive friend. He was full of life, constantly smiling, and had a knack for making others laugh. 

Tycho loved his family and friends. This is how we will forever remember him! Never FORGET: Always be kind and have compassion for others.

Never spread rumors and learn to communicate with each other.

Tycho’s last wish was ‘give all of my money to a depression and bipolar organization’ …so, that’s exactly where it’s going!

Please join us in our fight to raise awareness of the signs of depression! We need to honor our friends because we never know what’s hiding behind someone’s smile.

100% of your donations will join Tycho’s and go to a depression and bipolar organization.

Labrava’s son is pictured above with two of Labrava’s Sons of Anarchy co-stars, Kim Coates and Theo Rossi.

We send our condolences to all who knew Tycho well.

May he rest in peace.

If you or someone you know is considering suicide, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
