Khloe Kardashian FINALLY Reveals Pregnancy

Instagram: @Khloekardashian
We've been waiting on this news since September, and now we finally have confirmation, er...Konfirmation!
Khloe Kardashian took to Instagram to reveal that she and boyfriend, Tristan Thompson, are expecting their first child together. In the post, Kardashian writes:

"My greatest dream realized! We are having a baby! I had been waiting and wondering but God had a plan all along. He knew what He was doing. I simply had to trust in Him and be patient. I still at times can't believe that our love created life! Tristan, thank you for loving me the way that you do! Thank you for treating me like a Queen! Thank you for making me feel beautiful at all stages! Tristan, most of all, Thank you for making me a MOMMY!!! You have made this experience even more magical than I could have envisioned! I will never forget how wonderful you've been to me during this time! Thank you for making me so happy my love! 
Thank you to everyone for the love and positive vibes! I know we've been keeping this quiet but we wanted to enjoy this between our family and close friends as long as we could privately. To enjoy our first precious moments just us ❤️ Thank you all for understanding. I am so thankful, excited, nervous, eager, overjoyed and scared all in one! But it's the best bundle of feelings I've ever felt in my life! ❤️❤️❤️""

This is the first baby for Kardashian and the second for Thompson. He has a 1-year-old son, Prince, from a previous relationship. Kardashian has been dating the Cleveland Cavalier for a little more than a year or so. They've been spending their time in Cleveland and LA. Khloe's pregnancy comes at an interesting time for the KarJenners. Kylie's still rumored to be pregnant and Kim and Kanye's surrogate is due early 2018. So, 3 KarJenner grandkids all the same age!
Keeping up with the Kardashian fans remember that when Khlo$ was married to, ex-husband, Lamar Odom she had trouble getting pregnant. She later revealed she wasn't really trying as much as we thought due to Lamar's issues with drugs and problems within their marriage.

Khloe's friends also took to the 'gram to congratulate the couple.

Congratulations, Khloe and Tristan! Now if we can just get confirmation on Kylie's pregnancy because we know that's coming soon. On the Christmas card perhaps?

Mindy Kaling Gives Birth to Baby Girl

Instagram @MindyKaling
Mindy Kaling has given birth to a baby girl named, Katherine Swati on December 15th at 10:50am!
Swati is the name of Kaling's late mother.
Even though we have all of these details, Kaling still hasn't revealed the name of the baby's father.
According to The Blast, Kaling didn't put his name on the birth certificate either. 
The 38 year old actress is pretty tight lipped about her personal life. However, I have my own assumptions on who the baby-daddy is.
Regardless, congratulations Mindy! We're so happy for you!

Throwback Monday

                                                When we talk about Michael Jackson, we mention all of his great videos like Remember the Time, Thriller, Beat It, Bad, etc.
However, why don't we talk more about In the Closet off of the Dangerous album?
This uber sexy video was directed by Herb Ritts and stars supermodel, Naomi Campbell, has MJ's love interest.I was first introduced to it when I was like 7 years old, and I didn't understand wtf was going on. But as an adult, I totally appreciate it!
They bump & grind along along, what looks like a ranch or Mission, in Salton Sea, CA and the cinematography is gorgeous! This video ended up being banned in South Africa for its highly sexual content.
The song is great too and features Princess Stephanie of Monaco (say what? yup!). That part was kept a secret for a while. Homegirl did try her hand at music, but just didn't work. Allegedly, Madonna was supposed to do the female vocals, but Jackson passed on it.
So, let's take this Monday to appreciate this video.

Beyonce Presents Colin Kaepernick with SI's Muhammad Ali Legacy Award

Beyonce was brought out as a surprise presenter for the Sports Illustrated Sports Person of the Year Awards to honor, former 49er QB, Colin Kaepernick with the Muhammad Ali Legacy Award.

Upon accepting the award  Kaepernick  promised that "with or without the NFL's platform, I will continue to work for the people." 
Queen Bey also thanked  Kaepernick for his "personal sacrifice," and  in a video tribute the 2016 Ali Award winner Kareem Abdul-Jabbar called Kaepernick a "worthy recipient".
Kaepernick has made headlines since he began kneeling during the national anthem last season to protest racial inequality and police brutality. The demonstration sparked a wave of protests by NFL players during the anthem that repeatedly have been denounced by President Donald Trump. Kaepernick left 49ers in March and has raised questions and rallies among his supporters because he hasn't been signed to a team since.

The Rock has always been into fashion.
Many new fans might now know it now, but I sure did when he used to enter, the then, WWF ring in a $500 Versace shirt and gold Rolex watch.
