Today our feeds are full of baby bumps and a legend reminding us why she is in fact legendary.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex aka Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have announced a baby’s on the way. Kensington Place has confirmed our fave royal couple is expecting a baby next spring. Everyone’s excited, especially grandmother-to-be Doria Ragland. The duchess’s mother released a statement saying she’s “very happy about this lovely news” and “looks forward to welcoming her first grandchild.”
In other baby news, singer Kehlani, who recently shared she’s preggers but now she’s sharing the baby’s father—guitarist Javie Young-White. In an exclusive interview on Nicki Minaj’s Queen Radio, the 23-year-old said the two connected because they are both sexually fluid. She explained, “I started dating women before I ever dated men. Then I was lucky to find a partner who was a bisexual male. He really understands by queerness and my fluidity, and I understand his. It’s very awesome to be understood.”
Also over the weekend, Tina Turner, who’s looking fabulous at 78, sat down with CBS’s Gayle King and discussed Tuner’s new book, Tina Turner: My Love Story. The legend confessed that early in her career she had some insecurities about her voice because “it didn’t sound like Diana Ross.” And that’s not the only thing she disliked. When Turner initially heard her signature hit, “What’s Love Got To Do With It?” she didn’t connect with the song. To which, King replied “You Tina’d it up.” Yes she did and it still rocks.
