Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade Shock Fans, Welcome “Miracle” Baby

It’s a girl for Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade!

It’s also a major surprise for anyone who has been following the lives of this actress and her basketball-playing husband.

On Thursday evening, Union shared three precious new photos on her Instagram page, announcing to the world that she and Wade had welcome a daughter via surrogate

“A LOVELY DAY,” wrote Union, adding by way of confirmation:

“We are sleepless and delirious but so excited to share that our miracle baby arrived last night via surrogate and 11/7 will forever be etched in our hearts as the most loveliest of all the lovely days.

“Welcome to the party sweet girl!”

This is the first child for Union, who has been very open in the past about her numerous miscarriages.

Wade, meanwhile, has three sons (Xavier Zechariah, 5; Zion Malachi Airamis; 11; and Zaire Blessing Dwyane, 16) from a previous relationship — and he and Union are also raising his 17-year old nephew.

In the memoir she released last year, “We’re Going to Need More Wine,” Union revealed she “had eight or nine miscarriages,” writing in the biography:

“For three years, my body has been a prisoner of trying to get pregnant – I’ve either been about to go into an IVF cycle, in the middle of an IVF cycle or coming out of an IVF cycle.”

The couple got married in August of 2014 after dating for many years.

Even after enduring those three years of failed IVF cycles and being so very bloated from the hormones at nearly all times, Union explained in her memoir that she and Wade “remain bursting with love and ready to do anything to meet the child we’ve both dreamed of.”

And that day has finally now arrived.

No information is available about the surrogate, as we would expect.

And neither Wade nor Union revealed the name of their daughter nor any of her measurements.

But who cares, right?!? She’s here!!!!

Added Union on Instagram, quoting song lyrics:

When I wake up in the mornin’ love/And the sunlight hurts my eyes/And there’s something without warning/Love Bears heavy on my mind.

Then I look at you/And the world’s alright with me/Just one look at you/And I know its gonna be/A lovely day.

Other celebrities have also gone the surrogate route to have kids.

Most notably to most readers, as we assume, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West used this method in order to being their third child into the world due to complications related to Kim’s first two pregnancies.

Please join us in screaming CONGRATULATIONS as loudly as you can to Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade!

Your daughter is perfect, guys.


The Voice Recap: Welcome, Mariah Carey!

Mariah Carey may have built up a reputation as a diva throughout her years in the spotlight, but she’s decided to change this up by appearing on The Voice as an adviser. 

If first impressions are everything, then she made a good impression on the artists she worked with. She wanted to push them to their limit while nurturing the talent. 

Monday’s episode also served as the first episode of the Knockout rounds, pitting some of the best singers of the season against each other. 

But how did it all pan out? 

Team Adam: Tyke James singing “Ring of Fire” vs. Keith Paluso singing “You Are the Best Thing”

Mariah worried that Keith was being too heavy with his vocals and thought it would be great if he slowed down to give viewers a chance to take in his unique voice. 

Meanwhile, Tyke was rushing through his rehearsal, and Mariah wanted him to douse it with some heart. That’s not a big thing to ask. 

Keith’s performance fell very flat, and it was almost like he didn’t take any of the feedback on board which was rather problematic. 

Tyke’s performance starred slow but gradually got better. He did take the feedback to heart, and that’s likely why he won the Knockout. 

But Kelly wanted to give Keith another shot, so she stole him. 

Team Kelly: Kymberli Joye singing “The Middle” vs. Zaxai singing “Cruisin’” vs. Natasia GreyCloud singing “Tennessee Whiskey”

This was an odd choice. There were three people competing in this heat, and it was because Cody Ray Raymond departed the contest. 

The positive here was that two of the three would be advancing to the Top 24. Mariah had little to say to the three performers, presumably because they were solid. 

There wasn’t a negative thing to say about either of the performances. The trio killed it, and Kelly saved Kymberli and Zaxai, while Blake stepped in to save Natasia. 

Team Jennifer: MaKenzie Thomas singing “How Deep Is Your Love” vs. Mike Parker singing “Breakeven” 

Makenzie has one of the best voices this season, but her Knockout performance was not all that. Mariah was taken aback in rehearsals and even shed a tear. We didn’t know that was possible, but stranger things have happened. 

Similarly, Mike’s voice was all over the place when it came to the actual performance, but Makenzie secured a narrow victory, while Mike was sent home. 

Team Blake: Funsho singing “Earned It” vs.  Katrina Cain singing “Don’t Let Me Down” 

Mariah gave some solid advice to Funsho: pull back and relax. That was enough for him to tower above Katrina Cain, who languished with her performance. 

Blake saved Funsho, but nobody saved Katrina. 

Team Jennifer: Patrique Fortson singing “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” vs. SandyRedd singing “Dangerous Woman” 

Patrique’s pacing was the issue for Mariah, and she helped him work on it, with some of her signature wit thrown in. 

SandyRedd was given a similar set of commands, and both performances were solid if a little unspectacular. 

Jennifer saved Patrique and SandyRedd, so that’s a plus!

Keeping Up with the Kardashians Recap: Welcome… Alex Rodriguez?!?

As evidenced by the Kim Kardashian sex tape, at least one cast member on Keeping Up with the Kardashians knows a thing or two about how to handle a rod.

This was relevant on Sunday night because former Major League Baseball superstar Alex Rodriguez, often referred to by the nickname “A. Rod,” made an unexpected cameo on the popular reality series.

Can’t say we saw that coming.

Also the boyfriend of Jennifer Lopez, Rodriguez was on hand to help the ladies with their baseball skills in anticipation of a charity game that was held to raise money for the Watts Community Center.

This is an interest in which Kris Jenner has often decided to devote her time and interest.

The big and very poorly-played game pitted the Kardashian family — including Kim, Kourtney, a then-pregnant Khloe, Kris and Kendall — against family pal Tito Jackson and his loved ones.

The Kardashians called themselves the Calabasas Peaches due to the movie A League of Their Own… and they were very much in a league of their own terriblenesss.

“The Jacksons have to go down,” Rodriguez said in an attempt to coach the women up, adding:

“Dear God, let us all play like New York Yankees.”

Kim at bat

(Editor’s Note: The Yankees just lost a playoff game by a score of 16-1 and a series to their hated rival, the Boston Red Sox, so perhaps playing like the most recent version of the Bronx Bombers was not a great idea.)

Editor’s Note 2: A. Rod is a giant tool.)

In the end, the Jacksons thrashed the Kardashians, with Kim going down on strikes faster than she went down on Ray J in the aforementioned sex tape.

“We should just hand over the check now because we suck,” she later said.

Still, the game raised $ 15,000 for a charity that helps underprivileged kids.’

kourt with a glove

“I can’t wait to celebrate all the hard work that was put into the community center,’ said Kris as the family toured the kitchen, sports facilities and computer center at the facility.

Elsewhere, Scott Disick and Khloe Kardashian played a pretty dumb prank on Kris by pretending that a talented artist named Art Vandelay had made some paintings.

They then dropped these paintings off at Jenner’s house and watched as she wandered around her house, wondering where to hang them.

So much for her so-called expertise in the world of expensive art, right?!?

Disick and Kardashian were intent on embarrassing their snobby loved one, but soon realized they had maybe gone too far.

“We have to break it to her that we’re completely lying…and basically giving her fraudulent paintings,” Disick noted in a confessional.

Over dinner at Nobu that evening, they allowed Kris to schmooze with the fake artist before they dropped the bombshell that she had been had.

“What? No!” Kris yelled upon learning that the paintings had been created by Khloe in her garage.

“You are pieces of sh-t…you had me this time!” Jenner boomed.

Finally, because the writers are truly out of storyline material, Kourtney ordered a DNA test.

“Oh my God I’m Middle Eastern and North African!’ said Kourtney, who was also “4.5 percent French.”

“I’m so white,” complained Kendall, while Khloe added:

“I’m 41.5 percent Middle Eastern.”

Fascinating, right?

Teen Mom OG Recap: Welcome to the Dysfunctional Family!

They are officially on board.

Teen Mom OG kicked off Season 8 on Monday, October 1 with an intense 90-minute episode that introduced a pair of new faces to the franchse:

  1. Bristol Palin, the daughter of former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
  2. Cheyenne Floyd, a former cast member on MTV's The Challenge who has a daughter with another Season 8 addition, Cory Wharton.

What were this pair up to on the opening installment?

We learned just how complicated of a relationship Floyd and Wharton find themselves in, while we also got a pretty good idea of why Bristol and Dakota Meyer recent filed for divorce.

Scroll down for a recap of all the events from an interesting and emotional Season 8 premiere…

1. Her Life Isn’t Perfect

Bristol arrives
This was a message Bristol said she wanted to send, although it’s not clear why anyone would think that a 27-year woman with three kids by two men – with a famously polarizing mother – would be living a perfect life. Regardless, the premiere gave us a look look at the difficulties in her marriage.

2. Yup, It’s Sarah Palin

Yup its sarah palin
We’re just saying. The woman who came close to being the second most powerful person on Earth made a cameo early in the premiere.

3. Worlds Apart

Bristol and dakota
While Bristol and Meyer live together in Austin, Bristol was off in Arizona with her mom celebrating her sister Piper’s bachelorette party to opem the premiere, while Dakota took the kids to see his parents in Kentucky. Palin told the camera that her husband’s PTSD has been “hard on our marriage.”

4. PTSD?

Yes. Meyer received the Medal of Honor after 2009’s Battle of Ganjgal, where he witnessed the deaths of his entire team. He’s been battling those demons and scars ever since.

5. What are Things Like for This Veteran?

Speaking with his dad and the show’s producers, Meyer talked about joining the Marines. “When I joined, it was 110% that you will be going to war soon,” he said on air. “Joining, I could have never knew what I was getting into. You can say, ‘Yeah, I’m ready to get shot at,’ but you’re talking at a 17 year old kid.”

6. More from Dakota:

More from dakota
“We got in a big gunfight and everybody with me is dead,” he continued. “When I first came home, train wreck is not even, that’s an understatement. Anxiety got me real bad.” Meyer added that his children are the “reason I get up every day,” saying they “add to the quality of life, they’re everything.”

Counting On Recap: Kendra, Joseph Duggar Welcome Baby Garrett!!

Back in June, Joseph Duggar and Kendra Caldwell welcomed the birth of their first child, a precious baby boy named Garrett David.

Now, almost four months later, Counting On has aired Kendra’s difficult delivery episode.

As difficult as it was for fans to see her in so much discomfort, it was even harder for Joe. It was hardest of all, of course, for Kendra herself.

Many Duggar fans were surprised when they learned that Kendra gave birth in a hospital. The Duggar family is big on home births for … complicated cultural reasons.

“Kendra would lay down and she would have a contraction,” Joe explained.

“So,” he continued. “The only comfortable position for her was standing on her feet.”

She was having enough discomfort and difficulty that they went to the hospital.

And that was a very smart move.

Kendra kept holding her breath instinctively while in pain, but 

Kendra’s labor would ultimately last 13 hours.

As her contractions grew closer and closer together, her water still had not broken.

Fortunately, she was in the hospital, so the doctor was able to help her with that.

“Don’t push,” Kendra’s mother coached her as her labor grew more intense. “Just breathe.”

Joe was riding an emotional high, but his actual feelings were very conflicted.

“It’s exciting because our baby’s almost here,” he admitted. “But also it’s a hard time because I have to see Kendra go through the hardest time of her life.”

When little Garrett David was born, however, Joseph was positively over the moon.

“He’s here, he’s here!” Joe kept repeating.

Kendra chimed in, cooing over her “sweet little guy.”

Fans have known about this precious baby for months, but seeing his birth on Counting On gave them a whole new perspective.

Part of the appeal of the Duggars is how viewers feel that they’ve been with the family every step of the way, even through births. That can really hook you.

That said, a number of viewers can’t help but wonder: what comes next?

Obiously, Joe and Kendra are busy being new parents to their baby and Kendra is probably still in the later stages of healing from childbirth.

But fans realize that, for most of their marriage, Kendra has been pregnant with their honeymoon baby. What is next for the couple?

A lot of married couples have a child early on in their marriage. After they give birth, they focus on parenting but still make time to enjoy their married state.

But Joe and Kendra are not most couples — they’re Duggars. Fans figure that it’s only a matter of time before baby #2 is on the way.

That said, considering how difficult Kendra’s childbirth was, will she be so eager to try again? And having seen and heard her pain, will Joe be in any hurry to return to a delivery room?

Probably not. But they may feel an obligation to, either from family and community pressure or from religious beliefs.

And if you spend enough time around a precious baby like Garrett, sometimes the pain of childbirth becomes a distant memory … and all that you can think about is how much you’d like to have another.
