John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are expecting another baby, “Joy has filled our hearts again”

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are expecting a baby!

The Cravings cookbook author, 36, announced the news in an Instagram post on Wednesday, revealing that she's expecting another baby after undergoing in vitro fertilization, or IVF.

"The last few years have been a blur of emotions to say the least, but joy has filled our home and hearts again," Teigen wrote alongside a photo of herself showing off her baby bump. "1 billion shots later (in the leg lately, as you can see!) we have another on the way."

"It's been very hard keeping this in for so long!" she added.

Teigen, who is already a mom to 6-year-old Luna and 4-year-old Miles, expressed her apprehension around sharing her pregnancy news and talked about the nerves she would feel after each appointment.

"Every appointment I've said to myself, 'OK if it's healthy today I'll announce,' but then I breathe a sigh of relief to hear a heartbeat and decide I'm just too nervous still," she said. "I don't think I'll ever walk out of an appointment with more excitement than nerves but so far, everything is perfect and beautiful and amazing."

It's unclear if Teigen will be having a baby boy or girl, but many of her fans and friends flooded her comments section sharing their warm wishes and congratulatory messages, including fellow "Cravings" co-author Adeena Sussman.

"We're waiting for that little bebé with open arms," Sussman wrote.

The announcement comes nearly two years after Teigen shared the heartbreaking news that she suffered a miscarriage. A few days before sharing the news, she told her followers that she had been admitted to the hospital due to "excessive bleeding."

Teigen and Legend were going to name that baby Jack.

The hit reality competition show Dancing with the Stars will premiere on September 19, Disney+ announced Wednesday.

This won't be Ribeiro's first time in the ballroom. In 2014, Ribeiro won the mirror ball trophy on the show with pro Witney Carson.

"Dancing with the Stars has been such an important part of my life for so many years, and I am ecstatic to officially rejoin this tight-knit family as co-host," Ribeiro said in a statement.

On this season of DWTS, Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli and Derek Hough will return as judges.

Good Morning America will exclusively reveal the cast for DWTS season 31 on September 8.

New image shows Michael Douglas as Benjamin Franklin in upcoming limited series

Apple TV+

Michael Douglas is Benjamin Franklin in a new image released by Apple TV+.

The Oscar-winning actor, who is set to portray the Founding Father in the new Apple TV+ limited series Franklin, appears pensive in full makeup, hair and costume.

In February, Apple TV+ announced that Douglas would take on the lead role as Franklin in the new series, which is based on the book A Great Improvisation: Franklin, France, and the Birth of America by Pulitzer Prize winner Stacy Schiff.

The eight-episode series will explore how Franklin convinced France to underwrite America’s experiment in democracy.

"Franklin outmaneuvered British spies, French informers and hostile colleagues, all while engineering the Franco-American alliance of 1778 and the final peace treaty with England of 1783," the streaming platform said in a press release. "The eight-year French mission stands as Franklin’s most vital service to his country, without America would not have won the Revolution."

The limited series will be written and executive produced by Kirk Ellis and directed by Tim Van Patten.

A release date has not yet been announced.

Jennifer Lopez shares details on Ben Affleck’s romantic “bubble bath” proposal

Jennifer Lopez is dishing more about her engagement to Ben Affleck.

In her On the JLo newsletter, the superstar shared an update, titled "How It Went Down," detailing how the actor popped the question.

"Saturday night while at my favorite place on earth (in the bubble bath), my beautiful love got on one knee and proposed," the Marry Me star wrote. "I was taken totally off guard and just looked in his eyes smiling and crying at the same time trying hard to get my head around the fact that after 20 years this was happening all over again, I was quite literally speechless and he said, ‘Is that a yes?’ I said YES of course that’s a YES."

She went on, "I was smiling so big and tears were coming down my face, feeling so incredibly happy and whole. It was nothing fancy at all, but it was the most romantic thing I could’ve ever imagined … just a quiet Saturday night at home, two people promising to always be there for each other."

Jennifer announced the news of her engagement to Affleck to her fans Friday evening in her newsletter. Leading up to the proposal, there were rumors that the couple planned to tie the knot after the singer was spotted wearing a green diamond engagement ring, which Jennifer said in her newsletter has always been her "lucky color."

"Two very lucky people. Who got a second chance at true love," she declared.

Jennifer and Ben first dated in 2002, sparking the name "Bennifer," and announced their engagement later that year. They called off their wedding plans in January 2004 but rekindled their romance in 2021, making their relationship official on Instagram last year.

Hailey Bieber on the mend after experiencing “stroke-like symptoms”

Hailey Bieber is on the mend after experiencing what she described as "stroke-like symptoms" last week.

Over the weekend, the 25-year-old model told her fans what happened on her Instagram Stories and said it was "one of the scariest moments I’ve ever been through."

"On Thursday morning, I was sitting at breakfast with my husband when I started having stroke-like symptoms and was taken to the hospital," Bieber wrote. "[The doctors] found I had suffered a very small blood clot to my brain, which caused a small lack of oxygen, but my body had passed it on its own and I recovered completely within a few hours."

In the U.S., strokes are the fifth cause of death and leading cause of disability, according to the American Stroke Association. It occurs when a blood vessel that carries oxygen and nutrients to the brain is either "blocked by a clot or bursts." Usually when this happens, the American Stroke Association says, part of the brain can’t get the blood and oxygen it needs.

Board-certified emergency medicine physician and ABC News contributor Dr. Darien Sutton said there are three types of strokes. He said he believes Bieber had a transient ischemic attack, sometimes called a "mini-stroke."

"That’s when blood supply is temporarily reduced," Sutton said. "And that can cause symptoms lasting anywhere from minutes to up to 24 hours."

Bieber’s health scare comes one month after her husband, Justin Bieber, contracted COVID-19. The singer, who has since recovered from the disease, had to postpone multiple concert dates on his Justice World Tour, including a show in Las Vegas, which was later rescheduled to June.

Prince Harry, Meghan to receive NAACP President’s Award

Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are being recognized for their social justice work.

Ahead of the 53rd NAACP Image Awards on Saturday, the NAACP and BET announced the couple will receive the President's Award, which is given to those who have dedicated their time to public service. Previous recipients include Muhammad Ali, LeBron James, Rihanna and Jay-Z.

"We're thrilled to present this award to Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who together have heeded the call to social justice and have joined the struggle for equity in the U.S. and around the world," Derrick Johnson, president and CEO of the NAACP, said in a statement.

This year at the NAACP awards, Harry and Meghan are also recognizing leaders who are creating change in technology and social justice with the NAACP-Archewell Digital Civil Rights Award.

"Not only do they continue to lead by example, the duke and duchess have also decided to inspire the next generation of activists through the NAACP-Archewell Digital Civil Rights Award," Johnson added.

Archewell, the couple's nonprofit foundation named after their son, Archie, was founded in 2020 shortly after they stepped back from their roles as senior members of the royal family and settled in Los Angeles.

This year's inaugural NAACP-Archewell Digital Civil Rights Award recipient will be given to Dr. Safiya Noble, an internet studies scholar and professor of gender studies and African American studies at UCLA -- a pioneer in how digital technologies intersect with culture, race and gender.

The 53rd NAACP Awards will be broadcast live on Saturday, Feb. 26 at 8 p.m. ET on BET.
