married at first sight 2021 ‘i didn’t want to be here’

That this Married at First Sight groom is here and well enough to participate in the eighth season of the show is nothing short of a miracle. After the sudden end of his AFL career in 2009, Victorian Jake Edwards, 33, spiralled into a depression so severe it resulted in a suicide attempt. “I was the fifth person from the third generation in my family to play AFL,” Edwards says. “I placed a huge amount of importance on my self-worth around that. My professional football career ended when I was 21 and it was extremely difficult to come to terms with, because I felt like I’d let my family down.” Here, he tells WHO how he overcame those difficult days … How did you first react when you were let go from…

MARRIED AT FIRST SIGHT’S NEWEST EXPERT IS READY TO HEAT THINGS digniam UP, ! When people find out Alessandra Rampolla is a clinical sexologist, she admits they’re often “slightly taken aback”. “Very quickly, there’s almost like an invisible permission and they think, ‘Well, if you’re a sexologist then I suppose what I’m thinking I can just now say out loud,’” she tells WHO. Her job title is certainly sure to strike up some interesting dinner party conversations on this season of Married at First Sight – with Rampolla, 46, stepping in as the show’s new expert after Dr Trisha Stratford’s departure last season. “The contestants’ sexual expectations is kind of where I come in,” she explains. “Sex is a strong bonding factor for a relationship and it’s one of the pillars that…

chrissy & john stronger than ever

They’ve been through one of the worst things a parent can go through, but five months on from their devastating pregnancy loss and Chrissy Teigen and John Legend have never been closer. “We’ve been through so many challenges together and they’ve made [us] stronger,” Legend, 42, has said of their ordeal. “And I know that doesn’t always happen when people go through tragedy.” In late September, the couple were forced to say goodbye to their son Jack just over halfway through their pregnancy after Teigen, 35, was diagnosed with a partial placenta abruption. “You really don’t know the meaning of the word ‘unimaginable’ until something like that happens to you,” the former model previously shared of the loss. “And then afterwards, there’s such a spiral of things you could’ve done differently…

love me now

Despite being together for 15 years, Teigen and Legend’s relationship is still full of romance. The mum-of-two recently shared a snap of the pair cuddling on the couch, captioning it “everything”.

looking good, feeling better

Despite some upheavals in her personal life in the past year, Elly Miles is on track when it comes to looking after her physical and mental health. Miles, 26, started a new fitness regimen after finishing up as the 2020 Bachelorette (alongside her older sister Becky), and the incredible results are plain to see. While Miles is confident rocking her swimwear these days, she tells WHO it’s her daily workouts at a high altitude training studio that have improved her mental health. “When The Bachelorette was airing, I was so stressed because what was actually happening, currently, in my life was on TV,” she says. “Then I started to experience really bad anxiety, which I’d never had to deal with before. It felt like someone was closing a hand around my…

at home with kurt russell & goldie hawn ‘we’ve got a good thing going’

There’s a palpable chemistry between Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell as they sit next to each other at their home in LA. Even after 37 years together – the kind of long run rarely found in Hollywood – the couple are still as affectionate and playful as they were when they began dating while filming 1984’s Swing Shift. Just don’t expect some long-winded secret to their success. “You’ve just got to want to be together. I don’t think there’s any way other than do it. Right, Kurt?” says Hawn, 75. Russell responds, “I totally agree.” Though they never wed, the two stars have created a tight-knit family together, raising their son, actor Wyatt Russell, as well as their children from previous marriages: Russell’s son Boston and Hawn’s kids, actors Kate and…
