SPORTING GOOD UPDATE:

Enrique Inglesias welcomes twins

OHMYGOSSIP — Enrique Iglesias and Anna Kournikova have reportedly welcomed twins into the world.
The 42-year-old Spanish singer-songwriter and the former tennis star are believed to have become the proud parents of twins, one boy and one girl, who were born over the weekend.
According to TMZ.com, the babies are named Nicholas and Lucy, and Anna gave birth to the tots – who mark the first children for the pair – on Saturday (16.12.17) in Miami.
The news may come as a surprise for many fans of the couple, as the managed to keep the pregnancy completely under wraps for nine months.
It might be a while before the tots’ grandparents get to meet the new arrivals though, as ‘Hero’ hitmaker Enrique admitted earlier this year that despite having dated Anna since 2001, the tennis star has never met his chart-topping dad Julio.
The dark-haired hunk confessed: “They still haven’t met, no. They have to meet at some point.”
Enrique also revealed that despite the length of time they’ve been together, he and Anna have no immediate plans to get married.
However, Enrique claimed they already live the life of a married couple in many ways.
He added: “We’re just as happy. There comes a point when you’ve been with someone for a certain amount of time that I believe that you are like, married.
“I guess the only difference is that we haven’t walked down the aisle.”
Enrique raised eyebrows when he introduced Anna, 36, as his wife during a concert in Russia in 2011.
But the singer subsequently admitted he simply got caught up in the moment, adding that being married or not has no bearing on how much he loves his long-time partner.
Reflecting on the incident, he previously shared: “It was just meant to be sweet, in the moment. I honestly didn’t mean to confuse people. I thought it’d be easier for the audience to understand than if I said, ‘my girl’.
“I’ve never really thought marriage would make a difference. Maybe it’s because I come from divorced parents, but I don’t think you love someone more because of a piece of paper. And nowadays it’s not taboo to have kids and not be married.
“What makes a difference is that you’re a good parent.”

Bangladeshi conjoined twins baby girls Rabia and Rukia sit in…

Bangladeshi conjoined twins baby girls Rabia and Rukia sit in a hospital in Dhaka on July 25, 2017. Bangladeshi twins born conjoined at the skull will undergo a difficult and potentially dangerous operation to separate their bodies, surgeons said July 26 as they appealed for help from global medical experts. Doctors are trying to establish whether the one-year-old girls, born otherwise healthy in northwest Bangladesh, share the same brain, something that would vastly complicate the surgery.

Beyoncé Hits SoulCycle (with JAY-Z!) 6 Weeks After Welcoming Twins: How They’re ‘Motivating Each Other’

Six weeks after welcoming twins Sir and Rumi, Beyoncé is back in the gym — with husband JAY-Z by her side.

“She is slowly starting to get back to her ‘normal’ life,” says a source close to the singer, 35. “Her babies are now six weeks old, and she started working out again.”

The entertainers have taken several classes at SoulCycle this past week, and “they are motivating each other to stay in shape,” adds the source.

The “Formation” singer reportedly attended classes at the celeb-favorite spinning studio during her pregnancy and JAY-Z, 47, was photographed leaving the Beverly Hills location just days after Beyoncé delivered their new additions.

RELATED VIDEO: Beyoncé Shares First Photo of Twins Sir and Rumi Carter

Earlier this month, the new mom of three (the couple also are doting parents to 5-year-old Blue Ivy) showed off her enviable post-baby body in a corset-like mini skirt and long-sleeved white top at Roc Nation artist Vic Mensa’s L.A. album launch party.

The family is currently living in a $ 400,000 per month rental home in Malibu and are still looking for a permanent home closer to Blue’s school.

“Beyoncé is happy with just being a mom right now. She has no plans to work,” an insider previously told PEOPLE about the star’s current slower pace. “She seems relaxed and very happy. Everything is good with her and Jay, and they seem to have a lot of fun raising their family together.”

Nurse Alice Breaks Down the Medicine: Bey and Jay-Z’s Twins Still Hospitalized

Beyonce and Jay-Z are new parents to twins

 

More than a week after reportedly being born on June 12th, Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s twins remain at UCLA Medical Center. They are still receiving care after reportedly being born before their due date.

We have yet to hear confirmation about how far along the babies were when they were born. Medically, we prefer babies be delivered as close to “full term” (37-40 weeks) as possible. This gives a baby more time to grow and develop. During pregnancy, a baby depends on its mother for important body functions. After birth, if a baby’s organs aren’t fully functioning, it’s common they are hospitalized for additional support.

Why the Twins Are Hospitalized

 

According to TMZ, the twins are being treated for a “minor condition” and are “under the lights,” which suggests that the babies are being treated for a common condition known as jaundice. Jaundice is a yellow tint to a newborn’s skin and the white part of their eyes. It is a sign that there’s too much bilirubin in their blood.

What Does That Really Mean?

 

It’s likely that because the twins were born prematurely their liver and body system functions may be having some difficulties. Bilirubin is a yellowish substance that’s made as the liver breaks down old red blood cells. It’s then eliminated from the body through urine and stool. When the body is unable to do so, bilirubin levels rise, leading to a condition known as “hyperbilirubinemia.” This causes jaundice. But it’s not just the skin discoloration that’s problematic. A high bilirubin level can be dangerous, leading to brain damage and other serious problems.

Isn’t Jaundice Normal in All Newborns?

 

In most cases, newborns have what’s called “physiologic jaundice.” It occurs because their organs aren’t yet able to get rid of excess bilirubin very well. This type of jaundice usually appears about 24 hours after birth. It gets worse until the third or fourth day, and then it goes away in about a week.

In the case of the Carter twins, their jaundice is likely more significant because they were born prematurely and are still being hospitalized well beyond the third or fourth day. This suggests they are requiring more extensive therapy. Based on typical treatment plans for newborns with jaundice, the twins are likely undergoing phototherapy and planned feedings. Phototherapy is a special light that the skin absorbs which changes the bilirubin so that the body can more easily get rid of it. Also, because premature babies typically aren’t eating or drinking very much, there are probably receiving planned feedings and intravenous (IV) fluids. These therapies provide necessary nutrition and also help them to pee and poop out the excess bilirubin.

Could It Be Something Else?

 

Although I hope it’s not the case here, other rare causes of jaundice in newborns include infection, a problem with the baby’s digestive system, or a problem with the mom’s and baby’s blood types. And the fact that the twins are premature puts them at risk for other medical conditions which can complicate their hospital stay. But it’s too early to tell; nor do we have confirmation of any other medical concerns. Like most Bey and Jay-Z fans—myself included—we are hoping for the best and look forward to their speedy recovery.

Your Next Steps Should One Of Bey And Jay’s Twins Be Given Your Name

Hi. I’m sure you’ve heard the news: Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s twins are here. And now we play the waiting game until the first official photos are released and the baby names are announced.

But what happens if one of the tiny Beys has your name? I’m glad I pretended you asked, because this is where things get serious.

Here’s where you go from there. You may want to sit down for this.

 

1. Accept that you are no longer you.

At least not in the way you once knew yourself. Over the course of your life, your name gains a reputation to those around you. The mention of this name evokes a strong character impression for people, and that’s something you earn over years of interactions.

But this is all gone. Beyoncé has need of your name.

 

2. Choose a new name.

Whether you accept it or not, your name has vacated the spiritual residence once known as you. It’s never coming back. But don’t look at this as an end, think of it as a beginning. A new beginning. Not many people get to choose their own name. But that’s exactly what you’ll be doing. Because your name no longer exists for you. 

Eventually though, people will learn this new name as they did your previous one, and you’ll once again become a whole person. Which, at the moment, you are not. 

 

3. Choose a new home.

“Home” is a concept you will have to get reacquainted with. You don’t have to physically move away from your current home, but it will never be the same. The moment those mini Beys are given names, and assuming one of those names is the same as yours, you become spiritually homeless. Your essence is siphoned away. Slowly, your familiars will begin to fade and the place you once called home will become alien.

Finding a new place in the universe won’t be easy, but fate has decided that you’re strong enough. Years down the road, perhaps even decades, your belief in “home” will become comfortable again. And though you’ll often wake violently in the night trying to recapture images or ideas of what you once were, some semblance of peace will be yours.

 

4. Make a new life for yourself.

Take a good, long look in the mirror. The person you see should look like a stranger to you. This is the new you. This mammalian husk is your home now. Within this human suit is where you will be born again. You’ll form new bonds with people and make new memories in the world. Your previous life will be a distant star over the horizon, to all intents and purposes out of reach, but still a tiny twinkling reminder of an infinitely shifting universe.

 

5. **Alternate plan of action should Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s twins’ names somehow match your first and middle name.**

Your tenure in this universe has completed. It’s time to phase out of this reality and into the next. Good luck on your journey, cosmic adventurer.

Jennifer Lopez’s Twins Spend the Day With Their Father’s Ex-Wife

Marc Anthony had much to celebrate this week as his youngest child with ex-wife Dayanara Torres, Ryan Muñiz, graduated from Woodland Hills Middle School in Los Angeles.

The 48-year-old salsa singer was seen leaving the ceremony with the graduate and his older brother, Cristian Muñiz, 16. Although it’s unexpected for the family to reunite for the special day, two additional guests were surprisingly also there: Emme and Max, half-siblings of the graduate, and children of Jennifer Lopez and Anthony.

Cristian and Ryan were caught by the paparazzi bonding with the 9-year-old twins, taking them by the hand while walking and chatting it up in the parking lot.

The mother of the graduate, Torres, also attended the graduation. In March, the former Miss Universe spoke out about her recent legal win against Anthony for child support. Ultimately, she faced backlash for taking the Latin superstar to court for more money, but she says it’s all about stability for the children.

She told People En Español that the disparity between the homes was confusing for the kids. “If they are going to have a Disneyland there,” she explained about their father’s home, “then this has to be at least be normal.”

JLo and A-Rod were seen boarding a plane in Miami on Wednesday heading to Las Vegas for Lopez’s residency All I Have. “They arrived in Las Vegas together. They both looked happy,” a source told PEOPLE. “J. Lo has several shows this week. A-Rod is staying in Las Vegas with her.”

9 Things Twins Are Really Sick Of Hearing

If you have a twin, you know that people tend to have a lot of pressing questions about the whole experience. (At this point, when someone asks “can you feel each other’s pain?” you have a canned response ready to go.) 

In the BBC Three video above, three sets of twins share some of the most common remarks they get from people, like “Which one are you?”

“Even our dad still gets us mixed up, it’s like come on,” one twin says, before explaining how some people distinguish them. “You’re the bigger one and you’re the… more thin one.” 

Rude. Watch the video above for more.

The Twins

The Twins


The Saskias, Saskia Chandler and Saskia Hunt, lead double lives. Quite apart from being ordinary young girls holding down ordinary jobs, they are also the super-powerful SuperTwins, and the jobs they manage to hold down while being the twins are decidedly not ordinary. Impossible things for the Air Force and fixing problems with tangled timelines in the past are all in a days work for Kyra and Katya. This ability to travel in time, with a little help from Voice, their disembodied guide and mentor, comes in useful when they become involved with the security services and an assassination attempt. Throughout all this, they attempt to lead normal lives, although Saskia Chandler is decidedly not a normal girl. The girls eventually come to the conclusion that far from being Richie, as she began her life, she’s always been Saskia, which appears a little odd, but makes perfect sense to them.
