That's right, the Dutchess of Cambridge is in labor!
The world has been anticipating this over the last week. Reports are saying that shortly before 6 a.m. local time Monday, Prince William's wife, Kate Middleton was admitted to St. Mary's Hospital in London. She checked into its posh Lindo Wing.
Kensington Palace confirmed that the Duke of Cambridge was by his wife's side as they traveled by car from Kensington Palace to the hospital. "Things are progressing as normal," a palace spokesperson said. The Royal protocol states the palace will be silent until Kate gives birth. Once she delivers the child, her doctor will sign an official bulletin announcing the royal boy or girl's birth. That proclamation will next be brought outside through the main entrance of the wing and be taken to a car that is waiting and be delivered by security escort to Buckingham Palace! This is when the world will finally learn the baby's gender, weight and time of birth, along with any other key details surrounding the child's arrival. Now, this is what will happen pending the baby be born between 8 a.m. and 10:30 p.m. local time. If the baby arrives after those hours, the palace states that the bulletin's delivery will be delayed until the following morning. Talk about royal treatment!
Once Kate and Will are preparing to leave the hospital, the two with their newborn will pose for photos outside of the wing before leaving. The child, who will be bestowed the title of prince or princess, will now be the third in line to the British throne following Charles and William. It is a duty and privilege that will now be granted to the heir regardless of gender. The rules of succession have been amended to allow for the couple's first-born child and not merely a first-born son, to eventually ascend to the throne. If the couple indeed welcomes a baby girl, she will be only the sixth woman to be crowned queen in her own right in the 1,500-year history of the British monarchy.
The couple met all the way back in 2001 at St. Andrews University where they studied art history. The two reportedly became a pair after sharing a house together with two of their friends. In 2010 Clarence House announced that William and Kate had become engaged. The couple has 12 years of history together and this surely marks another beginning for them. Everyone is waiting patiently to find out who the newest addition to the succession of the crown will be a new queen or king!
Finally, after eight years we will learn the true identity of who "the mother" really is! The show has been renewed for a 9th and final season. CBS and 20th Century Fox Television announced yesterday the series will in fact be back for a final season. All of the series regulars will return including Josh Radnor, Jason Segel, Cobie Smulders, Neil Patrick Harris and Alyson Hannigan, as well as series creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas.
We have all sat wondering and guessing over the past eight years the premise of the whole show, who is the mother!? It has been confirmed that she will finally be revealed this last season.
"Through eight years, 'How I Met Your Mother' has mastered the art of leading-edge comedy, emotional water-cooler moments and pop culture catch phrases," said Nina Tassler, president of CBS Entertainment. "We are excited for Carter, Craig, Pam Fryman and this amazing cast to tell the final chapter and reveal television's most mysterious mother to some of TV's most passionate fans."
The series is by Carter Bays and Craig Thomas and premiered on CBS in September 2005. Bays said about the final season, "We have a plan to bring back many people we've had on the show," Bays said. "Not to steal their idea, but I loved the 'Seinfeld' finale where you saw everyone that's ever been on the show. We have a way to do it that sort of fits in with the universe of our show." The wait will be over soon!!
After a long break from the music industry, the singer turned actor was back in the studio and just released his new comeback single "Suit & Tie". It looks like fans have been waiting for this one as this could break his record for his biggest first week ever. The song was produced by Timbaland. According to Billboard, "Suit," which has topped the iTunes singles chart in the U.S. and England, is well on track hit between 330,000 and 350,000 downloads by the end of the reporting week on Sunday! If sales keep going in this direction, the magazine said it would easily be his best sales week ever for a digital song, blowing by the 250,000 logged by "SexyBack" in 2006.
The song, which is currently available exclusively on iTunes is the first single from Timberlake's unscheduled third album which is titled The 20/20 Experience. I haven't seen much promotion for the song or the album. He has managed to fly under the radar a bit, I'm sure we will see a lot more once the album is getting closer to coming out. It has been six years since the actor has released any new music. He tweeted a few days ago that something would arrive soon and then to everyone's surprise, released the song "Suit and Tie" just after 11:30 Sunday night. Jay-Z collaborated with Justin on this song. With his acting career booming over the last few years, its easy to forget he started in a boy band! Timberlake has only released two albums since his boy band days with N'Sync. So far it looks like this one will be a hit!
It was reported a week and half ago that Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis have officially split up after 14 years together. Depp's publicist said in a statement released to Entertainment tonight that "The couple have amicably separated, please respect their privacy and more importantly, the privacy of their children," (Lily-Rose, 13 and Jack, 9).
It was reported that Depp and Paradis had been having problems for a while and they drifted apart after relocating to Los Angeles from France. There are now, however, new rumors swirling that Depp is dating his "Rum Diary" co-star Amber Heard. Nothing is confirmed as of now, but I'm sure this is not the end of this dramatic break-up.

Kim Kardashian is extremely upset that she has been put on the cover of Turkish Cosmopolitan without her knowledge, but given the circumstances, who wouldn't be.

So how did she get featured on the cover? The reality star did an international photo shoot that got sent out to various magazines published by Cosmo, but she was never informed that it would end up on the Turkish version of the magazine.
