The 30-year-old royal shared the happy news with friends and family earlier this month, two years after marrying Jack Brooksbank.

The baby is expected to arrive in February, just four months before Prince Philip’s 100th birthday.

Her parents, Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, both 60, are said to be “thrilled” by the pregnancy – which follows a torrid year for the disgraced Duke of York.

In a statement, Fergie said: “I am so excited by the news that Eugenie and Jack are expecting their first child.

“Thrilled for them both and in my 60th year cannot wait to be a grandmother.

“Welcoming a new baby into the York family is going to be a moment of profound joy.”

The Queen and Prince Philip have also been told and are excited to welcome their ninth great-grandchild.

A source close to the family said: “This has been the tonic the whole family needed.

“Eugenie and Jack are delighted, and told Sarah and Andrew a couple of weeks ago. They were both utterly thrilled – it’s been a long time since the Yorks had some happy news, frankly.

“The news has also been welcome by the Queen, who is very close to Eugenie, and obviously has an extraordinarily strong sense of family.”

The 30-year-old Princess and wine merchant Jack, 34, married in October 2018 at St George’s Chapel, in the grounds of Windsor Castle – just months after her cousin Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle.

They met in Swiss skiing resort Verbier in 2010, and in a joint interview on The One Show two years ago revealed Jack proposed while on holiday in Nicaragua.

Eugenie famously chose a low-cut Peter Pilotto wedding gown which showed off the prominent scar on her back, to help others with disfigurements.

The scar was the result of surgery she had as a child for scoliosis, in which two titanium rods were inserted into her back.

Her father, who walked her down the aisle, is likely to be especially delighted with the news after what has been a difficult time for the Queen’s third born child.

He has spent the past year trying to clear his name after being heavily embroiled in the Jeffrey Epstein scandal.

The Royal is currently under increasing pressure from the FBI to cooperate with them about his friendship with the late paedophile financier. 

Earlier this month he held crisis talks with the Queen at Balmoral over his involvement in the scandal.

It comes after Virginia Giuffre accused British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell of arranging for her to have sex with Prince Andrew three times in 2001.

She was then 17. Andrew has always denied the claims – and his lawyers insist he has repeatedly offered to speak to the US authorities.

As a result of the scandal, the prince has kept a determinedly low profile for almost a year.

And he officially stepped back from public life last November after a disastrous interview with Emily Maitlis on Newsnight.

Meghan Markle has serious ambitions to run for president: report

Meghan Markle harbors serious ambitions to run for president of the United States, according to a report.

After the Duchess of Sussex and husband Prince Harry dumped royal duties with their historic Megxit this year, the 39-year-old former “Suits” star now has her eye on the White House, a close friend told Vanity Fair.

“One of the reasons she was so keen not to give up her American citizenship was so she had the option to go into politics,” the unidentified friend told the mag.

“I think if Meghan and Harry ever gave up their titles she would seriously consider running for president,” the friend added of rumors of a 2024 run.

Her biographer, Omid Scobie, also previously claimed that the former actress “has her eyes set on the US presidency.”

“Meghan is the embodiment of the American dream. One day we may see Meghan become president,” the author of “Finding Freedom: Harry, Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family” previously told a documentary, Vanity Fair said.

Harry and Meghan already sparked scandal with a video urging people to vote that heavily hinted that she was against President Trump, despite the long-standing practice for royals to remain politically neutral. She reportedly has also been cold-calling Americans, urging them to vote.

Buckingham Palace distanced itself from the scandal — insisting the comments were “in a personal capacity” and stressing that the pair were no longer working royals — while Trump said he was “not a fan of hers.”

Meghan Markle has invaded primetime.

“I wish a lot of luck to Harry, because he’s gonna need it,” Trump said at the White House on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, some royal watchers are already writing off her chances of ever surviving a brutal presidential election race.

“I would state categorically that she has no chance of ever running for president. She would be eaten alive,” Andrew Morton, author of “Meghan: A Hollywood Princess,” told Vanity Fair.

“You need the skin of a rhino to run for office especially in America which is an utterly polarized nation. Look what happened to Hillary [Clinton], and she has lived and breathed high-octane politics since college.

“Americans don’t want lectures from Brits — royal blood or not. Just as we don’t want lectures from well-meaning Americans.”

Henry Cavill has had a super month (pun intended) thus far. The actor has reportedly signed on to play Superman in at least three more movies and is also starring in a recently released mystery flick that’s earned praised from critics and fans alike.

Yes, as you may’ve seen, Enola Holmes is currently the number one most-watched film on Netflix, thanks in no small part to the 37-year-old’s take on Sherlock. The internet fell in love with the idea of Cavill as the renowned investigator back when the trailer dropped earlier this year and it seems safe to say that he’s more than lived up to the hype. The feature currently holds a 91% critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes and has fans online begging for a sequel.

The pic, based off a book series of the same name, revolves around the eponymous teen sister of star detective Sherlock Holmes. When the siblings’ mother goes missing, Enola is forced to use her sleuthing skills to uncover the truth behind the disappearance and help a runaway lord in the process.

Brad Pitt & Jennifer Aniston Recreated A Dirty Scene From “Fast Times” – NowThis

Fans were losing their minds over a virtual table read of the 80s classic, “Fast Times At Ridgemont High,” during which Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt appeared on-screen together for the first time in years. 

The A-list video call from “Dane Cook Presents Feelin’ A-Live” on Thursday night brought together Julia Roberts, Shia LeBeouf, Matthew McConaughey, Morgan Freeman, John Legend, and others. 

With Cook hosting, the table read benefitted charities CORE—founded by Sean Penn, who starred in the 1982 “Fast Times” film—along with the REFORM Alliance.

While the star-studded, hour-long special could entice any viewer—especially Freeman narrating a scene between Roberts and Aniston talking about blowjobs—many were thirsting over the on-screen appearance of exes Aniston and Pitt. 

In a notorious scene from the movie, the character Brad Hamilton, revived by Pitt, fantasizes about Aniston’s character Linda Barrett by the pool. Pitt and Aniston were shown reciting the flirtatious scene as Pitt blushes and smiles.

LeBron’s Message About Lori Loughlin Is Going Viral

LeBron James doesn’t shy away from weighing in on non-basketball issues and the Los Angeles Lakers star made that clear with a recent Instagram post.

In the middle of the NBA playoffs, LeBron took to Instagram to call out a headline about Lori Loughlin.

The former Full House star has to serve a two-month prison sentence for her role in the college admissions fraud scandal. LeBron is upset with some of the news regarding her sentence.

A headline from Vanity Fair said that Loughlin, 56, will get to serve her sentence as the prison of her choice.

“Don’t make no damn sense to me. We just want the same treatment if committed of same crime that’s all. Is that asking for to much??? Let me guess, it is huh. Yeah I know!! We’ll just keep pushing forward and not expecting the handouts! STRONG, BLACK & POWERFUL!” LeBron posted.

A post shared by LeBron James (@kingjames) on

LeBron isn’t the only one perplexed by this. Actor Viola Davis left a comment on LeBron’s Instagram post.

“Whaaaaat???!!! Uh… is it punishment if you get chose? Is she going to chose her meal program, too??!!” she wrote.

Loughlin is scheduled to begin her sentence later this year. She reportedly has to report by 2 p.m. on November 19.

Selena Gomez Shares Private Messages to Mark Zuckerberg About Hate on Facebook

Selena Gomez is one of the biggest stars alive right now through both her music and her love life.

And for a long time Gomez held the record of most Instagram followers of all time.

However with an audience that big, you’re likely to attract some trolls who don’t have many nice things to say – and that was the case.

Selena was particularly upset at how Facebook and Instagram allow so much hate and false information. She was so annoyed that she even wrote out to Mark Zuckerberg himself and shared the messages online.

Keep scrolling to check them out.

Selena Gomez is a superstar.

The Texas-born singer is one of the biggest names in the world for a number of reasons. Her music, her Instagram, and her, ahem, colorful dating history.

But now, she’s single!

via: Getty

And since then she has evidently had a lot of time to reflect on why that may be.

And, let’s just say, she didn’t hold back.

via: Getty

The “Come and Get It” singer recently opened up about her singular relationship status, and she made some pretty outlandish comments regarding her old flames.

Now, Selena has been romantically involved with many famous faces…

via: Getty

Taylor Lautner, Orlando Bloom, Niall Horan… Just to name a few.

But, of course, there’s one relationship that stands out amongst the rest.

via: Getty

For years, Selena was embroiled in a highly publicized, on-and-off relationship with the infamous pop star, Justin Bieber.

It was a whirlwind relationship for the pair.

via: Getty

Rumors regarding their romance were first ignited when they were seen eating pancakes at IHOP together in 2010.

At first, Selena attempted to shut down rumors, telling Us Weekly “It was just pancakes.”

Well, as you all know, it turned out to not be just pancakes.

via: Getty

The couple spent the next couple of years dodging breakup rumors and attending red carpet events together – all in all, things seemed to be going well.

However, after years of drama, cracks began to finally show in 2014.

via: Getty

Tabloids reported at the time that the couple had an enormous fight at Coachella after Selena allegedly found photos of Kylie Jenner on Justin’s phone.

Following this, the couple broke up…

via: Getty

But, evidently unable to stay away from one another, they rekindled their romance a couple of months later.

Justin revealed that their romance was back on track with this Instagram post.

He captioned the black and white selfie with “Our love is Unconditional.”

But, sadly, it wasn’t to be.

via: Getty

Selena and Justin managed to make it work for a couple more months until the tabloids reported that Justin’s “secret liaisons” with Kendall Jenner were the reason behind the split.

Following her split from Justin, Selena went on to have a near-constant string of boyfriends…

via: Getty

One of the most publicized being with musician, The Weeknd – though, of course, Justin remained very much in her life, with the pair being spotted out and about together several times in the years following their break-up.

But now, fast-forwarding to 2020, Selena is single once more.

via: Getty

The singer has been focusing on herself during the lockdown, as well as working hard on launching her new makeup line, Rare Beauty.

And, when she appeared in a Nikkie Tutorials video a few weeks back…

via: YouTube

She gave a rare insight into her perspective on life as a single and independent woman.

While trying out the makeup from her new beauty line, Selena and Nikkie discussed an array of different topics…

via: YouTube

Including some of the pop star’s favorite makeup looks through the years.

However, the topic quickly turned to Selena’s unusual single status…

via: YouTube

Where she revealed that finding a boyfriend is actually at the very bottom of her priority list.

The topic was born when Selena discussing her makeup artist, Hung Vanngo…

via: YouTube

Saying that “he will be doing my makeup for my wedding, which is never gonna happen,” with a quick laugh.

Nikkie quickly told her to “stop it right now”, but Serena quickly reassured her that it’s fine…

via: YouTube

And explained:

“It’s hard in quarantine… It’s just funny that I release things that say I want a boyfriend and stuff, and I’m like, ‘I didn’t really mean it, though. Guys are a lot of work.’”

Selena admitted that she doesn’t have “everything figured out”…

via: YouTube

And, when Nikkie asked her if there’s anything else she’d like to learn in life, she replied with:

“I think just getting more and more comfortable with myself, I definitely spent years and years thinking I had to be a certain way – the older I get, the more that feeling goes away.”

However, she then made a quick and somewhat shocking comment regarding her old flames.

via: YouTube

“Every one of my exes thinks I’m crazy,” she added. “So, I don’t care.”

Selena remained straight-faced and somewhat blasé as she made her comment…

via: YouTube

While Nikki, who was working on her eyebrows at the time, stopped what she was doing and gasped with laughter, saying:

“I am so dead, I am so dead.”

You can watch the full video for yourself here.

But what’s going on with Selena now? Well, Selena has always been an open and friendly person who likes to look out for folks…

And that’s why she wrote to Mark Zuckerberg.

Selena wrote to Zuckerberg, the founder and owner of Facebook, addressing her concerns with the level of hate that exists on Facebook and Instagram.

“We have a serious problem.”

Gomez claimed there is a serious problem with social media, allowing hate to be spread so widely.

More specifically she wrote:

It’s been a while since we sat down. We have a serious problem.

@facebook and @instagram are being used to spread hate, misinformation, racism, and bigotry. I am calling on you both to HELP STOP THIS.

Selena’s shared her message with her 193 million Instagram followers.

She did so after the hashtag, #StopHateForProfit went viral. A hashtag relating to how social media companies allow hate so long as they’re profiting.

Numerous other celebrities joined the hashtag.

Jennifer Lawrence wrote:

Facebook ignores hate & disinformation on their site. This is not an “operational mistake.” It is a deliberate decision to put profits over people and democracy.

Let’s see if Zuckerberg responds to Gomez’s message…

Erling Haaland could be as good as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, says Lars Lagerback

Norway coach Lars Lagerback believes Erling Haaland has the potential to be as good as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

The 20-year-old Borussia Dortmund star scored his first international goal for Norway in a 2-1 home defeat to Austria on Friday.

And although it was the side’s first defeat in 18 months, Lagerback is in no doubt Haaland’s goal will be the first of many for a player who can go to the very top.

“I’ve maybe been around too long but I have never seen a guy since maybe (Lionel) Messi or (Cristiano) Ronaldo that developed at such a young age,” Lagerback said.

“That’s very unique and he has all the possibilities to become a really world class player – if you look at the offensive third of the pitch and in the box then he’s already absolutely top class.

“He perhaps has a little bit more to do in the link play but being so young, he’s already at a really high level.

“With the qualities he already has and his focused personality – if he can stay free from injury then he can be a really top class player.”

For Northern Ireland, the night should be marked by captain Steven Davis moving level with Pat Jennings’ caps record of 119 but, when asked about Ian Baraclough’s squad, Lagerback singled out Jonny Evans, who is due to return after missing Friday’s 1-1 draw in Romania for personal reasons.

“Of course there are some great players and some experienced guys, but now I have heard that Evans is probably back,” he said.

“He’s a leader. I’ve had a lot of respect for him both with Manchester United and now Leicester.

“I think he’s a very important player for them to get back in the team so if I would mention one player I would mention him.”

Lagerback was already without Real Madrid midfielder Martin Odegaard, who missed the Austria defeat with a knee injury, and could be further depleted in the middle of the park with Sheffield United’s Sander Berge a doubt with a knee injury.

If you looked through any online article or listened back to any TV report or radio report from earlier this week, you wouldn’t have found anyone telling you Lionel Messi was going to stay at Barcelona.

But here we are. After he stunned the world of football and informed Barcelona he wanted to activate the release clause in his contract, Messi decided he will remain at the club he has called home for almost 20 years…
