LADY GAGA’S BABY NEWS It’s almost a year since Lady Gaga stole the show at the Oscars with her loved-up performance of ‘Shallow’ alongside her A Star is Born co-star Bradley Cooper. Now, it seems the ‘Poker Face’ singer is loved up in the real world. The 33-year-old has recently been seen with businessman and investor Michael Polansky. The pair were spied kissing on New Year’s Eve and were recently seen cosying up at a Miami holiday house. Wearing a loose robe and minimal makeup, Gaga looked completely at ease with her new man, sparking speculation she’s looking to settle down. During an interview about her makeup line in December, the performer revealed that starting her own family was a priority. “I wanna do more movies, I wanna have babies, and I want to continue…

kate’s baftas baby news

All eyes were on the Duchess of Cambridge as she stepped out with Prince William to attend the BAFTA awards last week. In keeping with the sustainability theme of the event, Kate re-wore a white and gold embroidered Alexander McQueen gown last seen during her 2012 trip to Malaysia. But, this time the royal’s apparently more curvaceous appearance had fans speculating that she was all but verbally confirming news she is expecting baby number four. Last week, rumours the couple would soon be announcing the pregnancy reached fever pitch when Kate was spotted at an event without her engagement ring. The Express newspaper suggested this could signify she’s suffering from swollen fingers, a common occurrence during pregnancy.…

harry & meghan it’s twins!

With their life in Canada marking the start of a new chapter for Prince Harry and wife Meghan, royal watchers are now convinced the couple are on the brink of another huge announcement. Royals expert and author Phil Dampier tells New Idea he wouldn’t be surprised if the duke and duchess decide to expand their family and give Archie not one, but two siblings. “I’m sure Harry and Meghan will want to have another baby soon and a girl would be lovely to complete their family,” he says. “If she has twins, that would give them an instant family to compare to William and Kate and I’m sure they would be over the moon.” While rumours circulated during Meghan’s last pregnancy that she was expecting a multiple birth, this time around it’s thought…

eugenie: ready to start a family

Amid news the Queen has offered to host Princess Beatrice’s wedding reception, it’s appearing ever more likely that the happy occasion could mark Princess Eugenie’s official confirmation of her own happy news that she’s pregnant. Eugenie’s fans were delighted when, after a few low-key months, she finally returned to social media at the end of last month to mark the anniversary of her engagement announcement. They were also quick to urge the princess to make a baby announcement as soon as possible, with one even commenting, “It’s baby time!”. With all the furore surrounding Prince Andrew and his alleged involvement in the Jeffrey Epstein scandal, as well as the fall-out from Harry and Meghan stepping down as senior royals, it’s thought Eugenie may have made a tactical decision to keep away from…

bea’s dream wedding destroyed!

A royal wedding is normally a highly anticipated public event. But that hasn’t been the case for Princess Beatrice, whose upcoming nuptials to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi have been overshadowed by the recent spate of royal dramas. Shortly after Beatrice’s September 2019 engagement announcement, allegations ramped up about her father Prince Andrew’s involvement in the Jeffrey Epstein sex scandal. Things only worsened after he attempted to set the record straight in a disastrous television interview. “Bea and her sister Eugenie are the innocent victims of the Prince Andrew/Jeffrey Epstein scandal,” noted royal expert Phil Dampier. The fallout saw Prince Andrew stripped of his royal duties – and, amid the crisis, Beatrice’s upcoming wedding plans were quietly shelved. But, new reports reveal that the 31-year-old will tie the knot on May 29 with the reception held…
