We’re already halfway through the first month of the year (how did that happen!?), the awards season is already in full swing, a new trailer for the final episodes of Game of Thrones has hit the internet and our favorite celebrity moms are back to doing what they do best—making headlines. Are you up-to-date on your Hollywood gossip? If not, we’ve got you covered!
Meghan Markle Reveals Due Date
While the royals have always done things a certain way, Meghan Markle is definitely blazing her own path. Rather than be coy when asked how far along she is in her pregnancy, she told someone in a crowd of fans that she was six months pregnant and due at the end of April! Wow! The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate, never divulged that kind of information in public.
It’s unclear whether this is creating problems within the royal family but, of course, there have been rumors suggesting that there is tension. This month, it was announced that Meghan’s personal bodyguard has quit, making this the third staff member the Duchess of Sussex has lost since her wedding less than a year ago.
Anna Faris Congratulates Chris Pratt
Just months after their divorce was finalized, Anna Faris is congratulating Chris Pratt on his new engagement. The couple share six-year-old Jack and have tried to be supportive of each other since announcing their separation in August 2017. While Anna was the first to jump back into the dating pool (and has been linked to Michael Barrett since September 2017), Pratt’s new relationship seems very serious.
The 39-year-old actor has been dating Katherine Schwarzenegger, 29, for less than a year, but it’s clear that he wants to spend the rest of his life with her. Pratt announced his engagement on Instagram with his bride-to-be’s mother, Maria Shriver (dad, of course, is actor Arnold Schwarzenegger), voicing her approval. Faris, 42, also commented, “I am so happy for you both! Congratulations!” It’s been said that the betrothed couple connected over their strong Christian faith.
Selma Blair Gets Real
In October 2018, Selma Blair revealed that she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. In a heartbreaking Instagram post, the 46-year-old actress thanked her friends, including Sarah Michelle Gellar, for their support and Netflix for giving her a job. Now, months later, the mother of Arthur Saint, 7, has given fans a glimpse of her ongoing battle.
Being sociable is difficult, her memory is faulty, and she no longer can freely ride a horse. Fighting many other symptoms and crippling anxiety, Blair wrote, “I choke with the pain of what I have lost and what I dare to hope for and how challenging it is to walk around.”
As devastating as it is, it’s so brave of Blair to share her journey. It raises awareness about MS and the struggle of those who live with the disease. Such an inspiration!
