Joanna Gaines Ultrasound Raises Serious Concerns; Is Her Baby in Trouble?

Just a few days after Chip and Joanna Gaines announced to the world that they’re expecting their fifth child, medical experts say the couple may have cause for serious concern when it comes to the baby.

This concern centers around an ultrasound photo Joanna shared on Tuesday of her unborn baby.

On January 2, Chip confirmed the exciting news of a fifth bundle of joy on the way for him and his wife, as the Fixer Upper star shared an adorable picture (below) and wrote as a caption:

“Gaines party of 7.. (If you’re still confused.. WE ARE PREGNANT) @joannagaines.”

The HGTV stars are parents to four children: Drake, 12, Ella, 11, Duke, 9, and Emmie Kay, 7.

They’ll feature the kids occasionally on their wildly popular home renovation show, but only in snippets; only to show everyone gathered at home for some ice cream or something.

At various times last year, Chip made comments that hinted he and Joanna were trying (or thinking about trying) for another boy or girl.

As a follow-up to her husband’s cute news-breaking photo and message, Joanna posted a picture of her ultrasound, writing along with it:

“Chip swears he can already tell it’s a boy. Look at the little heartbeat!!”

Sadly, however, many Internet users are focused on something else.

According to TMZ sources and others in the medical community, it looks very much as if there’s excess fluid around the fetus.

This has many wondering if the baby has a condition known as hydrops fetalis, which can be fatal.

You can take a close look at the ultrasound below:

It’s important to note here that this one ultrasound image is not conclusive.

There are other angles and other photos an expert would need to study in order to determine whether extra fluid is in additional cavities such as the heart, lungs or abdomen.

So states a radiologist from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center to TMZ.

Chip and Joanna announced in October that they were ending Fixer Upper after five seasons.

“While we are confident that this is the right choice for us, it has for sure not been an easy one to come to terms with,” they said at the time, adding:

“Our family has grown up alongside yours, and we have felt you rooting us on from the other side of the screen.”

Cynics questioned whether this decision was simply a contract negotiating ploy, but Chip and Joanna remained adamant that they simply needed a break.

And they cited their family as the main reason why.

“This has nothing to do with a fraudulent skincare line or anything else you’ll inevitably read,” they continued.

“This is just us recognizing that we need to catch our breath for a moment.

“Our plan is to take this time to shore up and strengthen the spots that are weak, rest the places that are tired and give lots of love and attention to both our family and our businesses.”

We don’t know how far along Joanna is, so it’s possible she was already pregnant at the time of this announcement.

All we can say now, meanwhile, is that we’ll keep the couple in our thoughts and we will wish them all the best.


Big Brother Spoilers: Is Alex In Trouble?

Alex won the coveted Head of Household competition during Thursday’s double eviction episode of Big Brother, and while she did not get one of her targets out, she did get someone out who would have no qualms about putting her on the block.

Yes, Raven and her 79888 medical conditions are officially out of the house. The episode may have been a waste, but at least we got to see the Arkansas native’s true colors. 

Unfortunately for Alex, she is next in the pecking order and given that she forfeited her opportunity to win during the double eviction, her days are likely numbered. 

When the feeds returned last night, Alex quickly set the record straight and said that she was not out for revenge. She did say she questioned whether Paul was the one to turn on her, but he did damage control. 

Josh was still annoyed that Paul was making him and Christmas the targets when Paul was instrumental in orchestrating the whole thing. 

Before the final Head of Household competition of the night took place, Paul told Kevin that he should try to win the competition because then he could take Alex out once and for all. 

With that said, that would also mean Josh, Christmas and Paul would be able to compete in the next challenge for power in the house. Kevin seemed happy to play along.

Josh was worried about Kevin knowing the plan to evict Jason. It made him worry that Paul or Christmas was turning on him. Paul said he did not turn on anybody and that Kevin was just a smart man. 

Oh, Josh. You are going to be so pissed when you get home and watch the season back. 

Josh emerged as the new HOH, and that meant Alex’s game was coming to an end if she does not win the veto. Alex is the target, and the rest of them will opt to keep Kevin in until Final 4. 

If Alex wins, that means things will get rather interesting in the coming week because then there’s also the possibility that she could win the next HOH and take Paul or Josh out. 

For now, Alex thinks everything is fine between her and Paul, but could Paul cut Christmas and Josh off? It’s a possibility. 

Alex would be wise to rattle Josh and let him know that Paul has been in an alliance with her all season. 

But then again, this is Big Brother 19. The houseguests are not wise. 

What do you think about all of this?


Blac Chyna Could Be in Legal Trouble for WHAT?!

Right now, most of the fallout from Rob Kardashian’s revenge porn extravaganza is impacting Rob himself. He made himself awful to his family and to the world, and he may suffer some serious legal consequences.

But it turns out that Blac Chyna may have gotten herself into a complicated legal situation with her Good Morning America interview — and it might come back to bite her.

Because this whole situation wasn’t already messy enough, right?

This whole situation is, indisputably, hard on Blac Chyna.

She’s having issues with her ex, Ferrari. He seems pretty sleazy.

She’s getting (and it sounds like fairly) called out for hypocrisy by Pilot Jones, another ex.

But, strangely enough, what some worry might end up getting her into trouble is a simple TV interview.


Because Blac Chyna may have violated her non-disclosure agreement during her Good Morning America interview.

What NDA, you might ask?

The one that she signed before she ever appeared on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Now, no NDA on the planet is supposed to legally enjoin people from reporting crimes or testifying about witnessing crimes.

(Not that our legal system always works out like it’s supposed to)

But there’s a difference between discussing something in court and going onto a news show to talk about Rob Kardashian’s horrible behavior.

When ABC news reached out to Kim Kardashian, Kim’s representative responded … with a copy of the NDA that Blac Chyna signed.

That NDA includes an agreement to keep their private lives private, which doesn’t exactly go hand-in-hand with discussing it on Good Morning America.

Now, that’s not a declaration of intent to sue.

But it’s something.

The closest thing to a warning shot that the Kardashians have fired during the past eight days, really.

At the moment, we don’t know that the Kardashians are willing to go after Blac Chyna for a possible breach of contract.

First of all, given the nature of what she discussed, it would look bad.

Like, really bad.

Right now, on the surface, they’re pushing their products like it’s business as usual.

Beneath the surface, they’re apparently furiously trying to keep Rob under control.

(We’re sure that the White House would love any tips to prevent emotionally volatile men from tweeting out self-incriminating rants in the wee hours of the morning)

We suspect that they’ll watch how this all plays out before they make a decision.

Now, it’s possible that the NDA doesn’t apply here, for one reason or another.

You’d really need to ask a team of lawyers who’ve gone over the NDA.

And we suspect that Blac Chyna must have done some research, because it was days before she broke her silence in that interview.

Ultimately, if a lawsuit over NDA-violation is possible, even if public opinion is turned against Blac Chyna at that point … we don’t know that it will happen.

Blac Chyna is and will always be the mother of Kris Jenner’s granddaughter.

A lawsuit under those circumstances might be kind of counterproductive from Kris’ point of view, you know?

Though we could definitely see the threat of a suit being used as leverage.

So we’ll all have to see how this plays out.


Meghan Markle & Prince Harry: Is There Trouble In Paradise?

When the world first learned that Prince Harry is dating Meghan Markle, the breathless rumors originating in the tabloids and circulating on social media indicated that the couple couldn’t wait to get to the altar.

At first, it was said that Harry and Meghan would get engaged in the spring.

Shortly thereafter, the date was pushed back, and it was widely reported that Harry would pop the question “sometime this summer.”

Now, the engagement talk seems to have come to a stop completely.

So naturally, the gossip pendulum has swung in the other direction, and royal watchers are now claiming that Harry and Meghan have entered a cooling off period.

Part of the basis for that speculation is that Harry and Meghan recently went several weeks without seeing one another.

Following Pippa Middleton’s wedding on May 20, the pair reportedly spent a few days together in London and then returned to their separate continents.

During that time, the folks who apparently receive round-the-clock GPS data on Harry and Meghan became concerned that the couple was growing apart,

But it looks like thr reports of Harkle’s death were greatly exaggerated, as we now know that the two of them spent much of the past week together in Toronto.

“They hadn’t been together for a while, so it was exciting for both to see each other,” a source close to Meghan tells E! News.

“Harry had planned to fly out this time as he felt it was unfair for Meghan to always be the one flying around, and she’d just come back from the U.S.”

Not surprisingly, the high-profile couple spent most of their time at Meghan’s home, where they “relaxed” and spent evenings “cooking meals together and eating outside in the garden a lot.”

“It’s Meghan’s favorite ‘room’ in the house,” the insider says of Markle’s backyard.

“She calls it a room because it’s the perfect patio space.”

Obviously, the truly shocking part of this story is that Meghan’s favorite part og her house is the patio.

The woman lives in Toronto!

That means her favorite part of her house is accessible like three weeks out of the year!

It’s a pretty tragic situation, when you think about it.

Basically, Meghan is like a real estate Sleeping Beauty and marrying Harry and becoming a princess is the only thing that can make up for the suffering she’s endured up to this point.
