“We are so in love with our daughter, Lucia,” Hilaria, 37, wrote alongside a photo of the little one. “Just like your brothers and sisters, you are a dream come true.”
Lucia is the sixth child the couple has welcomed into the world. They’re also parents to Carmen, 7; Rafael, 5; Leonardo, 4; Romeo, 2; and Eduardo, almost 6 months. In addition, Alec, 62, shares daughter Ireland Baldwin, 25, with his ex-wife Kim Basinger.
Alec and Hilaria introduced the newest member of their family by sharing a photo of the author cuddling with their kiddos. She captioned the image, “7.”
Over the years, Hilaria has posted about her experiences with motherhood and detailed her journey. In 2019, for instance, she shared she suffered a miscarriage, her second that year. She also frequently posts pictures from the Baldwin household and recently published photos of Carmen painting and working on her math homework.
The original series focused on such powerful female characters as Blake Lively‘s Serena van der Woodsen and Leighton Meester‘s Blair Waldorf. And while the new cast members couldn’t offer too much about their own characters, they remain confident that the updated version continues that legacy.
“Gender roles will be talked about and dissected,” Emily revealed. “A lot of the women in our show are very powerful, but I think they were in the original as well. We’ll be exploring what it means to be a woman in this generation, and in general, exploring ideas that we didn’t before.”
As far as whether there’s pressure in being compared to the original, the new cast members sounded confident that viewers will appreciate the updated series for what it is.
“We realized we could take these roles and make them our own—they have their own qualities that are special and differentiate [them] from the original,” Emily said. “I think people will relate to them on different levels.”
“I think Emily really hit the nail on the head,” Jordan added. “We’re just keeping an open mind, staying true to the essence of Gossip Girl but with a completely different take on it.”
Amid the reports pouring in as Kobe’s life was examined from every angle—the exalted highs and career-threatening lows, the triumphant and the tumultuous, his awe-inspiring skills and his all-too-human flaws—came an ESPN segment that particularly stood out amid all the rest, one that paid tribute to an aspect of Kobe’s life that both highlighted his best qualities and which countless people could actually relate to.
Recalling meeting Kobe backstage at an event when she was 8 months pregnant, SportsCenter anchor Elle Duncan told of how he immediately asked her how far along she was and what was she having. When Duncan told him she was having a girl, he gave her a high five and gushed, “Girls are the best!” She asked if he had any advice, and Kobe told her, “Just be grateful that you’ve been given that gift because girls are amazing.”
Asked if he wanted more children, the father of then only three daughters said that wife Vanessa Bryant was up for trying again, because perhaps they’d finally have a boy. Asked what he would do if he became a dad to four girls, Kobe told Duncan, “I would have five more girls if I could. I’m a girl dad.” (Parents of Natalia, Gigi and Bianka, Kobe and Vanessa welcomed daughter Capri in June 2019.)
With tears welling, the host signed off, saying, “When I reflect on this tragedy and that half an hour that I spent with Kobe Bryant two years ago, I suppose that the only small source of comfort for me is knowing that he died doing what he loved the most—being a dad. Being a girl dad.”
Alongside uploading glamorous cast portraits, the Instagram for the revival series also dropped one-word labels that teased the personalities of the fictional students.
The new batch of private school teens includes “Julien Calloway: Influence” (played by Alexander), “Monet de Haan: Power”(played by Smith), “Luna La: Style” (played by Moreno), “Max Wolfe: Freedom” (played by Doherty), “Audrey Hope: Grace” (played by Lind), “Kate Keller: Ambition” (played by Gevinson), “Otto “Obie” Bergmann IV: Privilege” (played by Brown), “Akeno ‘Aki’ Menzies: Innocence” (played by Mock) and “Zoya Lott: Perspective” (played by Peak).
“I think we’re excited to tell a different version of the story and different levels of restrictions,” cocreator Josh Schwartz told Us Weekly exclusively in August 2019. “It won’t be button-pushing just for the sake of just being able to do it. Maybe a couple ‘s–ts’ we’ll throw in there, just because we can. … You never want to do something just because. Luckily, we’re now airing post-Euphoria, so anything we do is tame by comparison.”
The sequel of the teen drama isn’t at the top of Brody’s must-watch list, but he revealed that he and his wife of six years, who share daughter Arlo, 5, and a son, whose name has yet to be revealed, have been binging other shows amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“We just finished The Reagans, I enjoyed that,” he told WSJ. Magazine. “We watched Mank, the Fincher movie, last night. We watched The Crown, The Vow,Moonbase 8, which I thought was kind of sweet, lovely.”
The Shazam! actor added: “And then also randomly in the Tim Heidecker–verse, we just did Beef House, which I really like, which is just like a crystal-meth Full House.”
Brody admitted that he has been in a “cocoon for going on a year” now and noted that the actors are “incredibly fortunate with the amount of flexibility in work.”
FRESNO, Calif. — A self-proclaimed pedophilia advocate who once ran for political office in Virginia has been arrested by authorities who said they caught him flying across the country earlier this week with a 12-year-old girl he had persuaded to run away from her California home.
Nathan Larson, 40, made the girl wear a long-haired wig to make her look older and told her to pretend to be mute during their travel, Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims announced on Saturday.
The investigation began Monday morning when the girl’s family reported her missing from her bedroom in Fresno, California.
Mims said detectives learned that Larson, a resident of Catlett, Virginia, met the girl previously through social media, flew to California and persuaded her to sneak out of her house around 2 a.m. Monday. They took a rideshare car to the Fresno Airport, where they board a plane bound for Washington, D.C., she added.
Larson was taken into custody and the girl was rescued by a Denver police officer who stopped the pair during their layover in Colorado, Mims said. The girl was not injured and later was reunited with her family.
Mims said that while the girl was not physically harmed detectives have evidence of inappropriate touching at the airport.
She said the steps Larson had taken to groom the girl were of a “sophisticated nature” and asked anyone who may have had inappropriate contact with Larson to contact police. She also urged parents to always monitor their children’s internet activity and who they are communicating with online.
Federal agents searched Larson’s house and discovered that during the past two months since meeting her online in October, Larson persuaded the girl to send him pornographic images of herself, according to Mims. During the search, Larson’s 69-year-old father, Arthur Larson, assaulted a federal agent and was arrested, she said.
Charged with assault and battery, the father was later released from jail after posting bond.
Mims said detectives also discovered the son’s “deeply disturbing background.”
“He is a white supremacist and a well-known advocate for pedophilia,” she said of the younger Larson. “This is a man who runs a website, which encourages the raping of children and sharing of naked photos and video of children being raped.”
Nathan Larson ran and lost a 2017 campaign to become a member of the Virginia House of Delegates, representing the 31st House District encompassing Prince William and Fauquier counties in northern Virginia. He ran as an independent and his platform included advocating for fathers to be able to marry their daughters, legalizing child pornography and suppressing women’s rights.
In 2009, while living in Boulder, Colorado, he was sentenced to 16 months in prison after pleading guilty to sending an email to the Secret Service that he intended to kill the president “in the near future.” It is unclear whether Larson was referring to then-President George W. Bush or then-President-elect Barack Obama.
He wound up serving 14 months.
Larson was being held in the Denver County jail facing a misdemeanor charge of harboring a minor. However, Fresno County authorities will seek an extradition request to Fresno where he will face felony charges of kidnapping, child abduction, soliciting child pornography from a minor and meeting a child for the intention of sex.
It wasn’t immediately known whether he has a lawyer.
As seen in the clip shared from their USA show, the wrestling couple is teaching their toddler how to potty train. Per Maryse, Monroe is “doing great,” despite The Miz (born Michael Mizanin)’s unconventional methods.
“I don’t know what’s going on sometimes,” Maryse said about Mike’s decision to transform their toilet into a monster for potty training purposes. “I think it’s scary for me. As a kid, I was always afraid that something’s gonna come out of the toilet and bite my butt.”
In defense of her fear, Maryse reminded her spouse that children have “a big imagination.”
Regardless, it’s clear that Mike is enjoying life being a girl-dad.
The model took to Instagram on Sunday, Nov. 22 to share a collection of photos showing her and Zayn Malik‘s daughter—whose name they’ve not yet revealed—along with the family of three’s holiday decorations.
The new mom herself is featured in the first snapshot, snuggled up in a comfy robe, sweatsuit and beanie, staring off into the distance while cradling her little one, who’s wearing an equally cute and cuddly outfit.
“A whole new kind of busy & tired,” Gigi captioned the Instagram post, making sure to add a couple of emojis. “but she’s da bestie so she got Christmas decorations early.”
The mother-daughter duo can be seen in another photo; this one a black-and-white snapshot of Gigi planting a kiss on her baby girl.
On Nov. 10, the cast of HBO Max’s revival of the hit CW show were spotted filming on the iconic steps of New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art. Throughout the new batch of photos, the actors carry the same too-cool-for-school attitude that Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively), Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) and their minions and lovers shared in the early 2000s.
While details about the new show remain sparse, the new crop of images finds Whitney Peak as an outsider of sorts as she walks around the group of friends seated at the Met and eventually gets up close and personal with Jordan Alexander‘s character. Additionally, we also see a little bit of Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley) in Eli Brown while blonde Emily Alyn Lind, who plays Audrey, certainly looks like she’s up to no good. Also, there’s Tavi Gevinson, who reminds us that the fashion here is going to be good.
Last week, the first batch of paparazzi photos of found Peak and Brown exiting a building were released. Peak was seen wearing a shiny long-sleeved dress that was apparently not quite warm enough for the chilly NYC air because Brown was seen offering her his coat. Another photo, presumably from when the cameras were not rolling, showed the two stars wearing face masks amid the coronavirus pandemic. And in another series of shots, actors Jordan Alexander, Zión Moreno and Savannah Lee Smith were seen filming a nightlife scene.
