Victoria Beckham’s children just gave her the birthday of her dreams

Victoria Beckham’s children just gave her the birthday of her dreams


And we have serious FOMO.

Victoria Beckham turned 44 on Tuesday, and in true Beckham fashion, the whole family was there to see in her birthday properly.

That’s right, VB got to spend the day how she likes it best, with husband David, and children, Romeo, Cruz and Harper – with even Brooklyn coming back from Coachella for the celebrations.

Starting early, the Beckham family kicked off the celebrations at a summer bash with Eva Longoria, with VB sharing a video of her and her six-year-old daughter Harper dancing.

‘Birthday eve with my babies x love u so much @davidbeckham kisses x,’ Victoria posted to her Instagram followers alongside a snap with her four immaculately dressed children.

She added later: ‘Love u so so much @davidbeckham x Thank u for making my birthday so special x The perfect day!! All 6 of us together x kisses x’.

A later Instagram saw VB cutting a watermelon cake decorated with a giant candle, surrounded by handmade birthday cards. ‘Love from a very lucky mummy x 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 I love u all so so much x,’ she captioned the video.

And again, in true Beckham fashion, the family were on hand to shower 44-year-old Victoria with birthday love.

‘Happy birthday to this young lady… Amazing mummy,’ David posted to Instagram alongside a black and white snap of his five family members

Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz then followed suit, each sending their mother a loving birthday tribute. ‘Love you to the moon and back,’ posted 19-year-old Brooklyn, while Romeo called VB ‘the best mum in the world.’

13-year-old Cruz, ever the joker, not only posted a heartfelt tribute to his mum on social media, but according to VB’s Insta stories, he also wrapped himself up in clingfilm as a joke present.

It’s safe to say that VB was sufficiently spoilt by her loved ones this weekend, taking to her Instagram to describe herself as ‘a very lucky mummy’.

Kim Kardashian and Chrissy Teigen trolling Kanye is the best thing you’ll see today

Kim Kardashian and Chrissy Teigen trolling Kanye is the best thing you’ll see today


We’re crying

Kim Kardashian has been a busy lady recently, welcoming her third child via a surrogate earlier this year.

That’s not all: just last week her sister Khloe welcomed a daughter, who she named True Thompson, and her youngest sister Kylie gave birth to her first child, also a daughter, in February.

But despite all the business around her, Kim still has her sense of humour.

For a while, we thought Chrissy Teigen was the funniest thing on Twitter, but it turns out it’s actually Chrissy Teigen teaming up with Kim Kardashian to troll Kanye West.

Allow us to explain.

It all started when Kanye tweeted the philosophical musing that ‘sometimes, you just have to get rid of everything’.

Naturally, his wife had some valid concerns.

And then good friend Chrissy Teigen stepped in to offer her help, should Kim need somewhere else to sleep.

However, KKW pointed out that her three kids would be coming with, so they may need more than just one air mattress.

Fortunately, Chrissy is very resourceful and managed to come up with a solution. Crisis averted.

Naturally, this IS all a joke and there’s nothing wrong with Kim and Kanye’s marriage, guys.

Just another lols day in the celebrity Twittersphere…

The Queen has been ‘hit hard’ by the death of her last remaining corgi

The Queen has been ‘hit hard’ by the death of her last remaining corgi


‘It really does feel like the end of an era’

queen corgis

The Queen is often associated with her love of Pembroke Welsh corgis, supposedly owning over 30 dogs of that breed during her reign – breeding her own, descending from her childhood pet, Dookie.

News emerged this week however that Queen Elizabeth‘s last remaining corgi, Willow, had been put down at the age of 14, something that is said to have hit the Queen ‘extremely hard’.

Queen Elizabeth’s father, George VI, is said to have been the one to bring corgis into the royal family, now considered a staple, with Elizabeth II breeding over 30 since 1945. In recent years however, the monarch decided to stop breeding her dogs, for fear that they would outlive her – something she did not wish on her beloved pets. Willow was the Queen’s last corgi, whose death has had more of an effect than most.

‘[The Queen] has mourned every one of her corgis over the years, but she has been more upset about Willow’s death than any of them,’ a Buckingham Palace source reportedly told the Daily Mail.

‘It is probably because Willow was the last link to her parents and a pastime that goes back to her own childhood. It really does feel like the end of an era. Willow represents a significant thread running through the Queen’s life from her teenage years to her 90s.’

The source continued: ‘For many, many years she bred and raised corgis and to think that the last one has now gone is something of a milestone.’

Of all of the Queen’s corgis, Willow was also one of the most known, appearing with another corgi Holly in the James Bond sketch for the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics.

While Holly and Willow are normal monikers, the Queen’s corgi names have been fairly questionable over the years, with some of her beloved former dogs bearing the names, Candy, Sugar, Foxy, Bushy, Honey, Whisky, Sherry and Bisto Oxo.

The Queen is said to have decided to put Willow down so as not to let her suffer but according to the source, ‘that doesn’t make her loss any less.’

Willow is said to be buried in the grounds of Windsor Castle, with a headstone that is expected to read, ‘A faithful companion of the Queen’.

Our thoughts are with the Queen.

Nicholas Hoult just welcomed his first child with his girlfriend

Nicholas Hoult just welcomed his first child with his girlfriend


And no one saw this coming at all.

nicholas hoult

It seems like only yesterday that Nicholas Hoult and Jennifer Lawrence were the IT couple, meeting on the set of X Men, and going on to date for years, parting ways in 2014.

But today we were reminded of how long it has been since the co-stars were together, as it was announced that 28-year-old Nicholas Hoult is now a father, reportedly welcoming his first child with girlfriend, Bryana Holly.

There was speculation that the couple, who have been dating since the beginning of 2017, could be expecting when 24-year-old lingerie model Bryana was photographed with a baby bump last month.

Now it seems that the rumours are true, with several sources confirming the news. ’They have kept the news under wraps, but are so happy and excited,’ a source reportedly told People.

Jennifer Lawrence is yet to address the news, but she opened up about her ex-boyfriend in a past Vanity Fair interview, explaining about their connection to the X Men series.

‘These movies had been my life for so long and they had to come first in everything,’ she explained. ‘I was also in a relationship with somebody for five years and that was my life. So my life was this person and these movies and we broke up around the same time that I wrapped those movies. Being 24 was this whole year of, “Who am I without these movies? Who am I without this man?”‘

Nicholas Hoult has yet to personally confirm the news and there’s no updates yet regarding the sex or name of the newborn, but given the secrecy of the pregnancy in the first place, we’re not holding our breath for an announcement.

Congratulations are definitely in order.

True Thompson already has more Instagram followers than you 

True Thompson already has more Instagram followers than you 


She’s a week old…

khloe kardashian going off birth control

It was announced last week that Khloé Kardashian had given birth to her first baby with Tristan Thompson, welcoming a baby girl.

Despite giving birth last week, the 33-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians star remained out of the spotlight following her daughter’s arrival, only speaking out recently.

After keeping the baby name under wraps, Khloé took to her Instagram to announce to the world that she had named her newborn, ‘True’.

‘Our little girl, True Thompson, has completely stolen our hearts and we are so overwhelmed with LOVE’, Khloé captioned a photo of some pink baby presents and balloons. ‘Such a blessing to welcome this angel into the family! Mommy and Daddy loooooove you True!’

While True understandably hasn’t been able to read the message yet – again, she’s a week old – it doesn’t look like it will be long until she’s an Instagram celebrity in her own right, already having her own profile.

Yes, True Thompson is on Instagram – and she has more followers than you already.

Currently boasting over 170k followers, True has the simple handle, @true. And while there are no uploads as of yet, we’re sure it’s just a matter of time.

We haven’t been this jealous of a tiny tot since we got a look inside North West’s designer wardrobe.

Welcome to Instagram, True.

Bella Hadid has responded to the claims that she and The Weeknd are back together

Bella Hadid has responded to the claims that she and The Weeknd are back together


And it’s not what anyone expected…

Bella Hadid & The Weeknd at The Met Ball 2016

The whole world was talking about former couple Bella Hadid and The Weeknd earlier this week, after reports emerged that the two were seen kissing all night at a Coachella after-party.

The ex couple split in November 2016 after dating for over a year, with The Weeknd (or Abel Tesfaye) going on to date Selena Gomez until October 2017.

With Selena since rekindling the spark with her ex Justin Bieber, fans got excited this week when it looked like The Weeknd might have done the same – speculating that Bella and The Weeknd might be getting back together.

21-year-old Bella however was quick to quash the rumours, releasing the simple statement to her social media, ‘It wasn’t me.’

‘It was my first break up – and so public,’ Bella explained in a cover interview with Teen Vogue last year. ‘As an outsider, you might think I handled it so well, but it’s always in your heart, and you always feel it very heavily. It’ll be hard for a while. Love hurts, but you pull through.’

She continued: ‘I’ll always respect him, and I’ll always love him. Sometimes you want to be sad about it or handle it differently, but at the end of the day, you never want to burn a bridge that you’ve fought so hard to build.’

Are Bella Hadid and The Weeknd building bridges? We’ll have to wait and see.

Prince Harry just paid a very sweet tribute to ‘the woman he is about to marry’


And we’re jealous.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are getting married in May

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding date is fast-approaching with the nuptials set to take place on May 19th at St George’s Chapel, in Windsor Castle.

With just over a month to go until the big day, there’s plenty of wedding prep to get done, from organising table settings and flower arrangements to sorting out the bridal party – Prince Harry has reportedly only just selected his brother Prince William as his best man.

But for 33-year-old Prince Harry, there’s no time off to relax before the big day, instead having to prove himself in his new role as the Commonwealth Youth Ambassador.

New in the role, Prince Harry made his first address earlier this week and he couldn’t resist giving a nod to his bride-to-be, 36-year-old Meghan Markle.

‘I am incredibly grateful that the woman I am about to marry, Meghan, will be joining me in this work, of which she too is hugely excited to take part in,’ he announced to the crowd, going on to explain how together they would make the voices of the youth heard.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to undertake tours to Commonwealth countries after they have tied the knot, and it’s safe to say we cannot wait.

‘Meghan is going to be a force,’ a palace source reportedly told PEOPLE of the Suits actress’ effect on her future husband. ‘She will help him really define his role and relate to the public in a way that he wouldn’t have been able to do before. It was worth the wait.’

What will Meghan Markle’s royal title be after she marries Prince Harry?

What will Meghan Markle’s royal title be after she marries Prince Harry?


And why aren’t the public happy about it?

The royal wedding is fast approaching, with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle set to wed on 19th May at St. George’s Chapel, in Windsor Castle.

With just a month to go until the big day, there’s plenty of wedding prep for the royal family to busy themselves with – everything from finding the perfect Philip Treacy-style fascinator and buying the newlyweds a fitting wedding present to creating a coat of arms for Thomas Markle, Meghan’s father – a traditional royal gift to the father of the bride.

Something that needs particular thought ahead of the big day however is the Queen’s gifts to the royal couple, with the monarch set to give Prince Harry not one but two royal titles as a wedding gift – expected to also bestow a royal title on his bride, Meghan.

But what will Meghan’s royal title be?

Meghan’s post-wedding title has reportedly been decided upon already, but to the dismay of the public it looks like despite technically being a princess of the UK, she won’t be given an actual princess title, most likely being given a Duchess title instead.

There are reports that Prince Harry is likely to be made the Duke of Sussex on his wedding day, in which case Meghan would be made the Duchess of Sussex – much like Kate and Wills’ titles, known officially as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

What will Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal titles be?

There is a lot of speculation surrounding potential royal titles for Harry and Meghan but the top choices seem to be the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, the Duke and Duchess of Clarence and Avondale, the Duke and Duchess of Connaught or the Duke and Duchess of Windsor.

It looks like we’ll have to wait till May 19th to find out!
