TODAY show Meteorologist On Pretending to Be OK After Miscarriage

Dylan Dreyer and husband

Great news for TODAY show meteorologist Dylan Dreyer who just announced that she is expecting her second child after revealing earlier this year that she suffered a miscarriage.

Dreyer is already mom to 2-year old son Calvin whom she shares with husband since 2012 Brian Fichera, but opened up in a big away after show co-host Jenna Bush Hager announced her third pregnancy, and co-anchor Hoda Kotb revealed she had adopted a second baby girl.

“I’m devastated, and I have to go to work on the ‘Today’ show and be happy and smiling and pretend like nothing’s wrong,” she recalled. “We push [emotions] down and get through the show, I go to the doctor and they do an ultrasound. The baby’s still in there. It’s fluke bleeding.”

It is quite refreshing to see more people in the public eye open up about miscarriage and infant loss given how the topic has been hush hush taboo and pretty mush an unspoken topic publicly before.

“I just want people to know that, yeah, I’m kind of going through it with you,” she said.

Bravo and Kudos and Congrats on the impending arrival!

It’s another boy, she revealed on set with her castmates!

Chrissy Teigen Gets Real About Her New Mom Body Insecurities

Chrissy Teigen is staying consistent on her opinion of the post-baby body reality.

After giving birth to her daughter Luna in April 2016, the model turned TV host said during a  Today Show appearance that she didn’t think it was realistic for women to look to celebrity women as the standard for the post-delivery body.

“Anyone in the public eye, we have all the help we could ever need to be able to shed everything,” the Lip Sync Battle host then told the network. “So I think people get this jaded sensation that everybody’s losing it so quickly, but we just happen to be the ones who are out there.”

She added: “We have nutritionists, we have dietitians, we have trainers, we have our own schedules, we have nannies. We have people who make it possible for us to get back into shape. But nobody should feel like that’s normal, or like that’s realistic.”

Since giving birth to her second child, son Miles, earlier this year, the former Victoria Secret angel has found herself on the same side as most women.

In a new Twitter post about her personal insecurities, Teigen gets deep about seeing those perfect bods in social media.

“It’s crazy. I think it’s awesome people have killer bodies and are proud to show them off (I really do!!) but I know how hard it can be to forget what (for lack of a better word) regular ’ bodies look like when everyone looks bonkers amazing,” she tweeted.

She added, “also I don’t really call this ‘body confidence’ because I’m not quite there yet. I’m still insecure. I’m just happy that I can make anyone else out there feel better about themselves!”

While vacationing in Bali with her husband John Legend, she gave her fans and followers an up close look at her stretch marks on her back and thighs.

“I guess these just aren’t going to go away.” she captioned the photo. “This is my new body.”

Nice that she is embracing what so many women feel ashamed of…Bravo Chrissy!

Viral: Target-Themed Birthday Parties

While 3-year old Pennsylvania pre-schooler Charlie Kern‘s Target-themed home birthday party went viral last week, it turns out she isn’t the first but it is a cute rare trendy theme.

Charlie’s mom, Emily,  said she balked at first when her daughter asked for a Target-themed birthday party.

“After a while, I started to think, ‘It’s different — let’s do Target,’ and at that point, it was official,” Emily Kern told TODAY show.

Emily decorated the front of their home like a Target store front. She made the cake and decorated the table with Target themed cupcakes and decorations and served PizzaHut Pizza and popcorn, the food sold at Target’s cafe.

For take away goody bags, there were actual Target bags Emily picked up from a local store and  guests got to fill their bags with items from a makeshift Dollar Spot in the backyard.

Kern filled each bin with things like toys, candy and bubbles, and was given authentic Target bags and stickers by her local store.

A couple of years ago, a 12-year old special needs boy named Fletcher had a Target party.

Also, in NYC, the mom of then  7-year old Parker Cook of Syracuse, New York was able to convince her local Target to host a party in the cafe.

The kids played scavenger hunt thru the store, decorated their own makeshift Target employee bags and got a dedicated cashier to checkout their goodies.

“Parker has loved Target since before he could talk, so naturally a Target party was necessary,” Parker’s mom Kara told Syracuse.com.

I even spotted a blogger use a Target-themed invitation.

Breast Cancer Survivor Christina Applegate Just Removed Her Ovaries and Fallopian Tubes

Nearly nine years after undergoing a double mastectomy following a breast cancer diagnosis, mom-of-one Christina Applegate underwent another surgery.

During an appearance on Today, the Bad Moms star, revealed that she had her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed.

“Two weeks ago, I had my ovaries and [fallopian] tubes removed,” she shared. “My cousin passed away from ovarian cancer in 2008. I could prevent that. That’s how I’ve taken control of everything.”

She added: “It’s a relief. That’s one other thing off the table. Now, let’s hope I don’t get hit by a bus.”

The Married With Children star has the BRCA1 gene mutation, which predisposes her to developing cancer.

Admittedly, the Anchorman actress worries about her 6-year-old daughter Sadie.

“The chances that my daughter is BRCA positive are very high. I look at her and feed her the cleanest foods. I try to keep her stress levels down. I’m doing everything I can on my end knowing that in 20 years, she’ll have to start getting tested,” she shared. “Hopefully by then there will be advancements. It breaks my heart to think that’s a possibility.”

15 Celebrities Caught in Cheating While Pregnant Scandals

This weekend, comedian Kevin Hart came clean about having some indiscretions with a woman who is not his wife and recently tried to extort money from him in exchange for keeping a sexually-explicit video she took of him secret. He chose to fess up and apologize to current expectant wife Eniko Parrish and his children with ex wife Torrei Hart instead in a video posted by TMZ.

Good for him for not succumbing to an illegal extortion attempt. While it is disappointing that he strayed at a critical time in his wife’s life carrying their first child together, hopefully, they can overcome this incident.

Hollywood has a little history of male celebrities stepping out on their spouses while pregnant. And female celebs too. For example, actress Claire Danes reportedly cheated with her Stage Beauty co-star Billy Crudup who left his then 7-months pregnant wife Mary Louise Parker for her before Danes and Crudup too eventually split up.

Some end up in brand new unions.  In 2010, former NFL great and ex TODAY show Sports commentator Tiki Barber cheated on his pregnant wife Ginny Barber with 23-year old intern Traci Lynn Johnson while Ginny was pregnant with the couple’s twins. He is currently married to Johnson and the two of them have children.

Actress Shar Jackson was pregnant with her third child with longtime beau and backup dancer Kevin Federline, when he started an affair with Britney Spears.

Then there are the “duh” incidents common with athletes and rappers.

Lil Wayne had two women, singer Nivea and actress  Lauren London pregnant at the same time. So obviously somebody was getting cheated on at some point.

A-Listers get burned too.

Actress Salma Hayek broke up with her French billionaire fiance François-Henri Pinault 11 months after the couple had their first child. There was speculation he may have started an affair while she was still pregnant.

Finally, Bones Star David Boreanaz cheated on his wife of eight years, Jaime Bergman, while she was pregnant, reportedly — and of all people with Rachel Uchitel, the same NYC events planner who boned a married Tiger Woods!

Keep your chin up, Eniko! From the looks of recent photos she has posted on Internet, she seemed to be having a pretty fun pregnancy up until now.

When you look good, you feel GREAT!?? My goal is to keep going until I can’t go anymore! ?? Happy #31weeks.. ? #WeGotThis ??

“She’s a Valentine’s baby. She is the love of my life,” Kotb, 52, said of her daughter, Haley Joy who she adopted. “I didn’t know my heart could feel like this. This is a moment in my life that I never thought would happen, and here it is, happening to me.”

This is the first child for Kotb, who was previously married to Burzis Kanga from 2005 to 2007. In October, the TV personality announced that she was moving in with her boyfriend, Joel Schiffman, after three years of dating. (Kotb did not reveal if Schiffman was involved with the adoption.)

Viral: Bump Comparison Photo builds Awareness that Every Woman’s Pregnancy is Different

SnapChat?? ChontelDuncan   chontelduncan  • Instagram photos and videos (2)

A photo of Australian fitness model Chontel Duncan and her friend, Natalie Smith,  who are just 5 weeks apart in their pregnancy has gone viral. Duncan shared the photo so her fans could see that every woman’s pregnancy is different and each carry in their own unique way.

“An[d] this is where it all began… Two ladies 4-5weeks apart in their pregnancies, both super happy & healthy, loving their journeys, embracing the changes & proud to share their growing bumps! #pregnant #expectingmums #happiness #babybumps #growing @hiit_australia @bph_14” Duncan captioned the Instagram photo.


I was surprised with a cute visit today from a friend Nat who is also expecting ? Just being able to see someone in the flesh, rub her tummy, hear how incredible her journey has been so far, how healthy baby is & all the fun talk about kicks, food, names etc was beautiful. This is Nat’s 3rd pregnancy so she had a lot of great advice to share ☺️ It’s very clear in this photo just how tall I am, I mean my chin sits above Nat’s head lol We worked out that we are 4 weeks apart, so our little ones will be the same age, same grade at school and potential best buds hehehehe….. Nat’s due start of March & I’m due end of March. Each women carries different and this most certainly doesn’t mean one is doing something wrong or not healthy etc. We both have healthy growing babies & we both have had incredible pregnancies so far, feeling amazing & full of energy. #21.5weeks #expecting #march2016 #pregnant #love #happiness #Babyduncan

A photo posted by SnapChat?? ChontelDuncan (@chontelduncan) on


The photo went viral last week with commenters and readers using it to rail against bump bullying.  Yes “baby bump bullying” is a thing. It is where people online (or in person) chide women for the size of their bumps. Usually, a person insinuates the belly is so big that she may be carrying twins or ask if a woman is further along in her pregnancy than she is based on what they perceive is a huge belly.  A lot of it is well-meaning, but still, it can be insulting and hurtful.

With the new attention to her page because of the viral photo, Duncan has since had to deal with criticism about photos of her rigorous workouts during her s second trimester.

The Queensland fitness fanatic said she has decided to use the extra attention to show others how active pregnancy can be.

She told TODAY show: “Once it became clear to me how foreign it was to see a pregnancy performed like mine, it did get me thinking. Maybe I should continue to document my pregnant because it seems that we are misled to believe that we are more fragile than we really are.”

The common advice from doctors is that you can be as active as you were before pregnant with some modifications and after consultation with a doctor.
