Kim has said that she was surprised she could get pregnant for the second time after giving birth to her first daughter North West, 2-years-old, back in June of 2013. To all of our surprise when she announced she was having a second child we couldn’t help but to be happy for the proud mama. We were even more excited when she revealed North would be having a baby brother.

Kim, 35, recently revealed having a health scare due to pregnancy complications with pre-eclampsia during her previous birth. She was told by her doctor she may have diabetes as a result of her pregnancy condition. She unveiled the information to sister Kourtney and mom Kris in a very somber moment on season 11 of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Just a day before Kim gave birth she took to Instagram and posted a picture of her bare belly, captioning it, “Ready whenever you are lol.”

Just hours after Kim was rushed to the emergency room and gave birth. A photo of Kim and Kanye hold hands was posted to Kim’s official website announcing the birth with the caption, “Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West welcomed the arrival of their son this morning. Mother and son are doing well.” We are thinking about you too, Kanye!

Congrats to the Kardashian West Family!

Did y’all catch The Wiz?

We sure did and it was nothing short of SPECTACULAR!

The cast was star-studded with seasoned veterans like Queen Latifah (The Wiz) and David Alan Grier (Cowardly Lion) to fresh faces like Ne-Yo (Tin-Man) and Shanice Williams (Dorothy Gale).

From the whipping and nae-nae-ing to the soulful renditions of the critically-acclaimed songs that Diana Ross and Michael Jackson once sang, the entire cast was out of this world.

Critics seem to agree that NBC did a great job with the casting and production of this year’s holiday musical in comparison to years past. However, some Twitter users were upset with the upset casting because “remaking something with an all-black cast seems…a tiny bit racist. #TheWiz”. Hmm… They must have not seen the original The Wizard of OZ.

Check out these highlights from the musical below!

Her third studio album ‘25’ has not only sold 3.38 million copies in it’s first week, but it sold another million copies in the week following. The “When We Were Young” singer smashed the previous record for most albums sold in a week which was N*SYNC’s ‘No Strings Attached’ back in 2000. That album sold a total of 2.4 million copies.

Here are all the accomplishments of ‘25’ so far:

• 20th album to sell 1 million copies in a week.
• First album to sell more than three million copies in a week.
• Most records sold in a single week.
• Best First-Week sales for a female artist.
• First single to sell one million copies in a week.

The barriers that this album has broken will be hard to top for any upcoming album. It’s safe to say ‘25’ is definitely album of the year.

Sunday Paper August 16, 2015

Here a few of this week’s top stories in entertainment and pop-culture news in your Sunday Paper!

Baby got back is what people are saying after Kim Kardashian-West posted a photo to Instagram dressed in…well… her birthday suit. The expecting mother has been receiving tons of criticism about her baby-body and she is fed up with the remarks. Kimye have been very vocal about their fertility struggles with North West and are excited to be expecting another child after countless fertility treatments.

Kim took to Instagram to silence the haters with her nude photo captioning it , “First they say I’m too skinny so I have to be faking it…Now they say I’m too big so I have to be faking it…SMH! Some days I’m photographed before I eat & look smaller, some day’s I’ve eaten & I look bigger. It’s all apart of the process.” The bold Momma went on to say, “ I think you all know me well enough to know I would document the process if I got a surrogate. Everyone’s body is different, every pregnancy is different! I’ve learned to love my body at every stage! I’m going to get even bigger & that’s beautiful too! I’m blessed to even be pregnant & even luckier to not have preeclampsia as far as I know, so I don’t have the swelling issue this time! They also say your body carries a boy different than a girl! Whatever the case may be I’m grateful to God for this miracle & no matter what rumors or comments you throw my way this time they truly don’t affect me! #NoFilter #NoPhotoShop #GoodLighting.”

How’s that for a statement?! The female body is an amazing thing and women shouldn’t have their bodies criticized for it’s natural processes. You go Kim!

One Victoria Secret Angel may already have her wings but she also just got a ring. Candice Swanepoel recently announce her engagement to long time boyfriend Hermann Nicoli. A source close to Swanepoel says, “She couldn’t be happier.”

The couple have been together for 10 years now after meeting when the model was 17-years-old in Paris. It has been said that the blonde bombshell has even learned Portuguese from her boyfriend who is Brazilian. Although the couple is very low-key Swanepoel opened up about her long distance relationship struggles and admitted to it being hard but totally worth it. We are happy for the newly engaged couple!

All hail Queen Bey! The cover of “Vogue” magazine was leaked and none other than Beyonce is making history by being the first black woman to make the September issue cover and the third woman of color to grace the cover alone.
