Cuteness Overload! 8 Kentucky Police Officers from the Same Department Pose with Their Newborns

Eight police officers from the same department in Kentucky have more than just their jobs in common — they are all parents of newborns.

Seven dads and one mom from the Erlanger Police Department all had children within the past year, and they decided to share a photo of all of them together.

“We are all like, ‘Oh, I am having a kid,’ then we are like, ‘So am I.’ ‘So am I.’ A couple months later, ‘So am I.’ Then you start looking at it and say, ‘(The) schedule is going to be an issue,’” Officer Ryan Atchley told WLWT.

And while the officers were all smiles for the photo, Justin Auton, admits that he only sleeps around three hours a night on average.

“I do cook a lot. I do all the wife’s meals for the whole week, the kids, I do all of that. I make birthday cake, stuff like that. Even though I don’t eat cakes,” he told WLWT.

The photo shoot was an adorable attempt to upstage the Glenpool Fire Department Department, who posed with seven newborns in May.

“Hey Glenpool Fire Department. I guess there’s something in the water here in Erlanger KY too!” they wrote in the Facebook post.”

In just a little over a year, seven firefighters from their department had babies. To celebrate, they took a sweet group shot.

“It’s crazy how it all happened, but we are a really tight fire family, so it was a blessing in disguise for us,” Sarah Hutchinson, wife of Glenpool firefighter Dustin Hutchinson, a 10-year vet of the department, told PEOPLE at the time. “We never thought we would get this attention!”

George’s Smile and Charlotte’s Pose Steal the Spotlight in Prince Louis’ Christening Photos

Little scene-stealers Prince George and Princess Charlotte couldn’t help but steal the spotlight in their little brother, Prince Louis’ official christening photos.

In the group shot with all the royal family members, including uncle Prince Harry and aunt Meghan Markle, the typically shy and reserved George flashes a huge smile as he sits on dad Prince William’s lap, while Charlotte sits next to mom Kate Middleton and sweetly gazes at her baby brother.

In the family of five’s solo shot, Charlotte’s cute little pose steals the show. The 3-year-old holds Louis’ christening robe as she poses with her leg to the side in a little ballerina stance.

The portraits, which were released on Sunday, were taken by Matt Holyoak, one of the world’s leading portrait photographers, to take the photos, which were taken in the Morning Room at Clarence House (grandpa Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall‘s official London residence).

Chrissy Teigen Pulls Out a Nicki Minaj Pose for John Mayer in Hilarious Tweet

Chrissy Teigen won the Internet for the 100th time on Saturday with one perfectly-timed tweet.

The 32-year-old cookbook author and model, who is currently expecting her second child with husband John Legend, saw pal John Mayer lamenting about the overuse of PhotoShop and FaceTune on social media.

“Nothing provides a clear view into someone’s taste, eye or intentions like the way they retouch a photo,” Mayer wrote Friday.

Teigen knew just what to do. Digging into her archives, she pulled out a picture of herself she later explained she had since September 2015 and sent it back to Mayer without commentary.

The photo had Teigen’s head placed on the body of Nicki Minaj in her iconic booty-bearing squat pose immortalized on the cover art of the rapper’s 2014 single “Anaconda.”

Mayer was thrilled, telling Teigen on Twitter that he was “dying” of laughter.

“New hi score,” he said, adding, “John Mayer took a screen shot!”

Minaj found it funny too. Hours later, she reposted the photo with a crying laughing emoji.

But what Teigen might not know is that Mayer and Minaj had a flirty past.

In September Mayer declared, “I spend an inordinate amount of time per day wondering if Nicki Minaj would like me or not,” which quickly drew a response from the rapper. “Would my body be your wonderland?” Minaj asked, referencing Mayer’s 2002 hit. “Asking for a friend.”

The musician was left speechless by the innuendo-filled retort. “Please hold on, losing my s—,” Mayer responded. “This isn’t my reply yet.”

As Mayer explained in a November appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, though, he doesn’t plan on responding because Minaj, 34, “wins that exchange.”

“At the time when I wrote it — No. 1 it’s completely authentic and No. 2, I forgot that I was a famous person and that I would find out very quickly whether or not she would like me,” he told host Andy Cohen with a laugh.

“In very short order, something was going on with the retweet thing and I went, ‘Oh man, this is going to be bigger than I thought.’ But she was really, really kind and funny to me. And I was like, ‘She wins.’ She wins that exchange. She spiked the ball — it was great. You’re supposed to spike the ball and I’m supposed to lose and you win, and for the most part, I thought it was cool.”

The two haven’t spoken since their back-and-forth — and that’s by design.

“That portal between two people who follow each other that could be crossed by either side should be respected,” Mayer said. “Two follows does not a DM relationship make, is what I’m saying. I think we’re both very responsible with the membrane that connects two people who follow each other on Twitter. Right now it’s just puncturing it just to do it. If we need each other, I think we know we’re there.”

This Guy Proposed To His Girlfriend In The Middle Of A Yoga Pose

May this yogi couple nama-stay in love.

During a vacation on the Hawaiian island of Oahu, Alec Horan proposed to his girlfriend Steph Gardner while they were doing some acrobatic yoga poses on the beach.  

Gardner was in a backbend, balancing atop her boyfriend’s feet when he pulled out the ring box. Of course, she accepted the proposal. 

“Steph’s surprised and emotional reaction was amazing, heck, even I teared up too,” Horan told The Daily Mail.

The couple has been doing yoga together throughout their two-year relationship and often films their practice. So it wasn’t at all unusual that Horan set up a camera on the beach that day to capture the big moment. 

“We love setting up the camera to get good yoga shots, it’s intimate and a very good way for me and Steph to connect,” Horan told The Daily Mail.

Below, more of the couple’s impressive poses:

Torrid Got Its Customers To Pose In Their Underwear, And It’s Magic

Torrid ― a clothing, accessory, swimwear, lingerie and shoe retailer for women sizes 10-30 ― introduced its newest ads Thursday, and the results are pretty epic. 

The brand tapped both influencers and its customers to star in its #TheseCurves campaign, featuring women of many shapes and sizes on its site and inspiring women to share photos of themselves in their underwear.

Included in the mix is Anna O’Brien, or glitterandlazers as she’s known on social media, who explained in a release how excited she is to be “part of a campaign that celebrates the bodies many of us grew up being taught to hate.”

Also featured is blogger and Refinery29 writer Liz Black, who said on Instagram that while it took “years” to love her body, now she prefers to “celebrate it in style.” In a statement, she also applauded Torrid for its fashionable offerings. “My body deserves better than the blandness typically offered to plus size women,” she said. 

Torrid also took to its own Instagram to share some images, including a shot featuring familiar faces Precious Lee and Georgina Burke.

Young Women Pose In Their Mothers’ Wedding Dresses, Exploring The Mythic Power Of A Gown

There’s something strangely magical about wedding gowns, the white dresses infused with fantastical (if not slightly old fashioned or misguided) ideas about femininity, purity and love. Quite often, young women look up to their mothers as models of this romantic reverie, their dresses serving as matriarchal symbols, ghostly remnants of a crucial event they are intimately linked to though did not experience physically.

In her photography series “The Line,” French photographer Céline Bodin engages with the beautiful and somewhat strange mystique of the notable white dress, exploring the complex roles a clothing garment plays in the lives of both mother and daughter.

the line

“The images engage with our notion of purity, challenging our perception and the equation it immediately operates,” Bodin explained to The Huffington Post. “The apparent cleanness acts as camouflage and unsettles the apprehension of our customs’ determinatives. Echoing icons, the portraits quietly recall religious purity and aim to question what exactly defines such incarnation and where does its essence lie: is it within the dress, the person, the vision, or the idea?”

For the series, Bodin enlisted young women she already knew as her subjects, whether family friends or previous models. Their first task was convincing their mothers to let them wear the dresses for the shoot, an endeavor which in itself proved challenging for some. Just the difficulty involved in persuading the former brides to wear the sentimental attire speaks to its unusual, and almost mythic power.

ahnds

“The resulting portrait might be one of both mother and daughter,” Bodin continued. “With melancholy it highlights an absence that can only find reality in each girl’s imagination, fed by the detail of the lace, the small holes and stains left on the dress, the old wedding photographs they might have seen. Confronting time and generations, the models silently re-enact a past they can only fantasize, allowing themselves to embody the archetypal role.”

Bodin’s photos subtly address many assumptions latently associated with wedding dresses, like the outmoded understandings of purity that, though far less relevant in the younger generation than in their mothers’, still lives on in the lore of the wedding dress.

The images, captured intensely against a white backdrop, appear at first almost like advertisements, with the subjects staring boldly straight ahead. Yet upon closer investigation, small imperfections, both in the dress and the images themselves, begin to appear. The photographs expose the tears and holes in the dominant narrative of the perfect wedding, while still lingering on the beauty of the fantasy itself.

See the bewitching photographs below and let us know your thoughts in the comments.

Kristen Bell, Jenna Dewan And More Pose Nude For Allure

Kristen Bell and Jenna Dewan-Tatum aren’t afraid to bare all for Allure’s much-anticipated “Nudes” feature.

Last year, Jennifer Morrison, Naya Rivera, Clare Bowen and Christa Miller stripped down for the magazine, and this year Bell and Dewan are joined by Nia Long and Minnie Driver in the pursuit of nothing but the naked truth.

Both Bell and Dewan-Tatum are new moms who both welcomed daughters in 2013. And though it’s been less than a full year since Dewan, 33, gave birth to Everely in May, she said her husband Channing Tatum was a big supporter of her decision to take it off for Allure.

“Chan was really on board with it— he knows I’m very comfortable in my own skin,” she told the magazine.

Meanwhile, 33-year-old Bell, who is just coming off the enormous success of “Frozen,” told the magazine, “I talk a big game about being comfortable in my skin. I wanted to put my money where my mouth was.”
