The real reason Emily Ratajkowski isn’t revealing her baby’s gender

Supermodel and mother-to-be Emily Ratajkowski has decided, along with her husband Sebastian Bear-McClard, not to reveal the gender of her baby — and there’s a pretty powerful reason behind their choice. In an Oct. 26, 2020 essay for Vogue, the model announced her pregnancy and discussed why she and her husband have decided against revealing the gender of their baby to both the public and friends. While most would assume their choice was born from their desire for privacy, Ratajkowski said she does not intend to reveal the gender until long after the baby is born.

Whatever baby’s gender turns out to be, Ratajkowski will surely make a great mom and she’s understandably excited to welcome her new baby to the world in a couple of months. “I used to use magical thinking whenever I wanted something to go a certain way. Now, though, I don’t try to envision a pink or blue blanket in my arms,” Ratajkowski wrote about her pregnancy. “I’m too humbled to have any false notions of control… Instead of feeling afraid, I feel a new sense of peace. I’m already learning from this person inside my body. I’m full of wonder.”

Read on to find out why Emily Ratajkowski and Sebastian Bear-McClard will not be revealing the gender of their little one.

Emily Ratajkowski believes there is more to her child than its gender

Emily Ratajkowski and her husband Sebastian Bear-McClard are expecting! However, the baby’s gender remains a mystery to both the public and the couple. In a Vogue essay, Ratajkowski said she does not want to reveal or know the sex of the baby because she believes there is more to her child’s identity than its sex. “When my husband and I tell friends that I’m pregnant, their first question after ‘Congratulations’ is almost always ‘Do you know what you want?'” Ratajkowski began her essay. “We like to respond that we won’t know the gender until our child is 18 and that they’ll let us know then.”

She said most people laugh at this, but that there is truth behind it. She goes on to discuss how gender stereotypes and expectations impacted her childhood and said she wants to put as little pressure on her child as possible. “I don’t like that we force gender-based preconceptions onto people, let alone babies. I want to be a parent who allows my child to show themself to me,” Ratajkowski explained.

Considering her passion for social activism, it is no surprise that Ratajkowski is taking a progressive approach to parenting and she is also not the first celebrity to decide to raise their kids gender neutral. Ratajkowski has already mastered the art of being cool and fans are genuinely excited for her to take on motherhood in her own unique way.

Iggy Azalea Defends Ex Playboi Carti Against Deadbeat Dad Accusations

Hoping on Instagram Stories, the ‘Fancy’ hitmaker makes it clear that her rapper ex-beau is pretty much involved in Onyx’s lives after saying that she’s raising their child alone.

AceShowbiz -Even though Iggy Azalea and Playboi Carti are no longer in a relationship, the female emcee lets people know that she still stands by his side when people make the wrong assumption about him. Most recently, the “Whole Lotta Red” rapper was accused of being a deadbeat dad to their son, Onyx, and Iggy immediately jumped to his defense.

It all started after Iggy confirmed their split through a post on Instagram Stories. “What I meant last night was that I’m raising my son alone & I’m not in a relationship,” she said, prompting people to jump into conclusions that Carti was not helping her parent their child.

For instance, one person said, “Carti is actually a deadbeat. this mf wouldn’t take care of his fans and now his kid lmaoo.” One other echoed, “Breaks my heart to see carti go deadbeat. I wanted to see dadboi carti,” while another commented, “Carti a deadbeat dad and a deadbeat rapper who don’t drop music bro pick a struggle.”

Seeing all the responses from social media users, Iggy later returned to the photo-sharing site to clarify that Carti is pretty much involved in Onyx’s life. “Nothing I said was intended to make it seem like my sons father isn’t part of his life but I’ve noticed a lot of people took it that way, so I wanted to clear the air,” she said. “Onyx is so loved by his dad & has always had both parents in his life from day 1.”

Iggy and Carti started dating in 2018 and sparked engagement rumors after some time, but neither of them has responded to this rumor considering they were pretty private about their relationship. This also applied to the “Fancy” hitmaker’s pregnancy, as she only confirmed the speculation two months after she reportedly gave birth.

Diplo Sets the Record Straight on Claims He Lives Together With Quenlin Blackwell

The 19-year-old social media star previously defended the record producer after he was accused of grooming her, insisting that their relationship is purely platonic.

AceShowbizDiplo has broken his silence amid backlash over claims that he’s currently living with Quenlin Blackwell. Hoping on his Twitter account on Monday, October 26, the famed DJ clarified that he’s only renting one of his properties to the young influencer, not living with her. He also made it clear they were not romantically involved in any way.

He said on the micro-blogging site, “OK so I rent one of my properties to @quenblackwell. And yes I use the studio that is in her building. Her social media is sarcastic and chaotic and I can see you can get a twisted idea but there is nothing but a friendship between us.”

In a separate post, Diplo called himself Quenlin’s “landlord” before adding, “I don’t really consider age or race as a qualification. U just gotta pay security deposit. And don’t poke holes in the walls or ruin my carpet.”

The controversy arose last weekend when 19-year-old Quenlin claimed on TikTok that she had been living together with Diplo for a while. Some people were not having it due to their age difference, and it got even worse after his past tweet from 2010 resurfaced. He wrote at the time, “girls born in the 90s i hav to stop sleepin with u.” People found this problematic due to the fact he should be in his 30s when he tweeted this, while girls born in the ’90s should still be in their teenage years.

However, Quenlin defended the record producer and stressed that their relationship is purely platonic. Calling the Major Lazer member his L.A.’s “dad,” she said, “I’d rather break both of my legs and be forced to walk than pursue Diplo romantically and he’d rather choke … Diplo has given me the opportunity and security to create. Diplo and his team are my mentor in LA and they are my safety net. Diplo and his team have saved me numerous times from the weirdos in LA. My parents trust him. I trust him. Y’all are making me feel icky.”

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson suffers face injury during workout: 'Things get extremely intense'

Fox News Flash top entertainment headlines for October 26

Fox News Flash top entertainment and celebrity headlines are here. Check out what’s clicking today in entertainment.

Not even a face injury can stop Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

The 48-year-old actor and fitness enthusiast hurt his face in a recent workout, drawing blood while using heavy chains to stay in shape. 

Johnson shared a video on Instagram on Monday to show off the injury.

"Alright, look. Sometimes, well oftentimes, things get intense here in the iron paradise, but we ain't playing tiddlywinks and we ain't reciting nursery rhymes," said the star in the video. "You get lumped up every once in a while and things happen."

A stream of blood ran down the "Moana" star's face next to one of his eyes. In the video, he used a finger to wipe away some of the blood before briefly sticking the same finger in his mouth and licking it.

"That's good. That's real good," he said after cleaning his finger. "Back to work."

In the caption of the post, Johnson revealed how he hurt himself.

"Threw around my 50lb chains for a drop set – I got lumped up and need stitches," he wrote. "Taste your blood, keep training and stitch up later – rules of the house. And I can confirm my blood tastes like Teremana, calluses and BlaMoan (black and samoan) Hot Sauce."

The star concluded by wishing a "productive week" upon his followers.

"Keep it light and a lil’ fun, but get after it like a MF," he said.

It's been a tough few weeks for the star, who announced last month that he and his family had tested positive for coronavirus.

"Stay disciplined. Boost your immune system. Commit to wellness. Wear your mask. Protect your family," he wrote in the caption of his announcement on Instagram at the time. "Be strict about having people over your house or gatherings. Stay positive. And care for your fellow human beings."

Miranda Lambert Heartbroken After Death Of Beloved Dog

Miranda Lambert, who is mourning the loss of her beloved dog Waylon, posted a heartfelt tribute on Instagram.

“Today I lost one of my best friends. My old pal Waylon. I found him and his sister on the side of the road in Oklahoma in January 2008. They were abandoned, starving and freezing nearly to death,” she wrote in the post.

“I took them straight to the vet and she told me that the little boy was not doing too well (malnourished and dehydrated ) because whatever they had found to eat while they were homeless, he always let her eat first,” Lambert added. “He did that nearly his whole life. She said he probably wouldn’t make it but he did. For almost 13 years.”

The country superstar noted that the other dog, Waylon’s sister, Jessi, is still alive.

“He was a rock in our family and always held down the fort. He lived his life with no fences. The way we all want to live. He was a farm dog through and through and retired to Nashville life riding on the bus with mama to go home to Texas for Christmas every year. I’m so thankful for the time we had with him and I’m thankful for the rest of the time we have with his sister Jessi,” she said.

Lambert also said that she was glad that her husband Brendan McCloughlin was able to know Waylon and spend time with him.

‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’: Pauly D Passionately Kisses Girlfriend Nikki Hall In Season 4 Trailer

It looks like in the new season of ‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation,’ Pauly D is officially off the market. He’s seen kissing his ‘Double Shot At Love’ finalist Nikki Hall.

While Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, 31, decided to retire from Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, it seems there might be a new female cast member to take her place. Pauly “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio is seen kissing his Double Shot At Love contestant Nikki Hall in a scene from the upcoming fourth season’s trailer. The fun begins again on Nov. 19 on MTV, and the promo shows Nikki falling into Pauly’s arms for a big smooch.

The kissing action goes down as Vinny Guadagnino says in a voice over, “I have a feeling it’s going to get a little crazier here.” He’s seen with his Uncle Nino holding a bottle of Jameson whiskey, while a montage of other wild cast moments come flashing across the screen.

The timeline for the show picks up amid the fallout from Angelina Pivarnick‘s Nov. 2019 wedding to Chris Larangeira, and the very dramatic reception that followed. A month prior to that, Pauly and Nikki were spotted having a reunion in Las Vegas and making out. She then joined him in the DJ booth at Hollywood’s Avalon on Dec. 6, 2019, where they were photographed being super flirty.

Nikki was a finalist on Pauly D and Vinny’s MTV dating show A Double Shot at Love. While Pauly decided to end things with his other finalist Derryn Paige, he didn’t end up pursuing Nikki either. Instead, he chose to remain single in the show’s finale on June 27, 2019. The Instagram model later took to Twitter and in a since deleted tweet fumed, “This is completely outside of my character but for someone to sit there and act like this s*** was one-sided…I did nothing to this man but love him and he was OK with it. And I’m crazy? Give me a f***ing break! I’ve had it!!”

Nikki then posted alleged texts from Pauly, including ones that read “You don’t have to change a single cell in ur mind or body,” and in another told her, “i love u just the way u are.” But by autumn, the two had reunited and apparently the love was still there. It appeared to keep going strong as the couple quarantined together during the COVID-19 lockdown in the spring of 2020. Nikki did several Instagram video cooking tutorials from his kitchen, where Pauly’s voice could be heard in the background. In a March 27, 2020 vid, she did an 11 minute segment on making chicken parmigiana with spaghetti, a dish close to Italian Pauly’s heart. Now fans will be able to watch their romance play out on the new season of Jersey Shore, which does cover the COVID crisis and was primarily shot at an empty hotel amid quarantine.

Jersey Shore ‘Bring the Family’ Vacation premieres on Thurs. Nov. 19 at 8pm ET/PT on MTV.

The strange revelation George and Amal Clooney revealed about Meghan and Harry

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding was a massive event. A whopping 600 guests joined them in St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle to celebrate the big day on May 19, 2018, according to the Daily Mail. The wedding was a star-studded affair, with guests ranging from Oprah Winfrey to David and Victoria Beckham, as well as Serena Williams and her hubby, Alexis Ohanian. Add to this list power couple George and Amal Clooney, who were reportedly given seats of honor next to some very important people. However, that seating arrangement puzzled some royal contacts.

Rumor has it that Harry’s godmother, Carolyn Bartholomew, chitchatted with the Clooneys before the wedding began and the powerful pair revealed how they knew Harry and Meghan. George and Amal reportedly gave a puzzling answer. Keep reading to discover what they said.

George & Amal do NOT go way back with Harry & Meghan

Carolyn Bartholomew and her husband were guests of honor at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s May 2018 wedding. According to the Daily Mail, Bartholomew was Diana Spencer’s roommate when the future princess met Prince Charles, and Bartholomew later became Harry’s godmother. When Bartholomew ran into George and Amal Clooney at the royal wedding, she apparently asked them how they knew Harry and Meghan. The Hollywood power couple reportedly offered a surprising revelation: “‘We don’t,’ the Clooneys answered brightly,” according to Air Mail.

It might seem curious that two people so unacquainted with the bride and groom would be seated so prominently at the wedding — or receive a wedding invitation in the first place. George reportedly danced with Meghan at the royal reception, and since the wedding, Harry and Meghan have reportedly spent quality time with the Clooneys. In August 2018, Harry and Meghan were invited by the Clooneys to visit their Italian residence, Villa Oleandra, on Lake Como, reported The Sun. Amal also allegedly spent more than $100,000 to fly Meghan to England after the duchess’ New York City baby shower in February 2019, per the Daily Mail.

Maybe the noteworthy seating enjoyed by George and Amal Clooney was based on the newlyweds’ hopes for a future friendship with the powerful pair. If that’s the case — mission accomplished! Then again, where else would one seat such a prominent couple? You just don’t put George and Amal Clooney in a corner, do you?
