While co-hosting the daytime talk show, The Real, back in November, Ray J revealed that he and Princess Love were expecting their first child.

Prior to this announcement, there had been much speculation that Princess Love and he were expecting. The couple were married in August 2016 and detailed their personal struggles with fertility on the fourth season of Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood.

Ray J spoke about how the two of them had been trying for awhile and had a hard time conceiving at first. He revealed that they don’t know exactly when it happened but that it was so special when they found out. He spoke about how it’s not as easy as people tend to think. That some can “go on tour and get everybody pregnant” where that didn’t happen for the two of them.

Multiple celebrity couples have opened up about their battles with infertility lately and their transparency can help to provide context for so many who are struggling with the same thing that may feel all alone or as if they don’t have an outlet.

Before knowing the gender of the baby, Ray J admitted that he did want a little girl first because he wanted the father/daughter relationship of having a “daddy’s girl.” He thought that a boy would be a “little more aggressive” and he just wanted a bit of peace the first time around.

This is a bit of an archaic notion of how babies and children act based on gender. Little girls can be fiery balls of sass and energy in equal parts to their brothers or male cousins.

At this time, the name of their new baby girl has not been released.

Mariah Carey opens up about her battle with bipolar disorder

Mariah Carey has spoken for the first time about her 17-year battle with bipolar disorder.

The singer told People she was first diagnosed with the condition in 2001 after a mental breakdown which resulted in her being admitted to hospital.

Carey, who has sold 200 million records worldwide, said she only recently has sought medical treatment.

She said it came after “the hardest couple of years I’ve been through”.

“Until recently I lived in denial and isolation and in constant fear someone would expose me,” she explained.

“It was too heavy a burden to carry and I simply couldn’t do that anymore.

“I sought and received treatment, I put positive people around me and I got back to doing what I love – writing songs and making music.”

Carey said she is now having therapy and taking medication for bipolar disorder, which has caused her to have periods of depression and hypomania, which can cause irritability and insomnia.

“I’m actually taking medication that seems to be pretty good. It’s not making me feel too tired or sluggish or anything like that. Finding the proper balance is what is most important,” she told People.

She added that for a long time she thought she had “severe sleep disorder” but whilst working on her album in the studio released “it wasn’t normal insomnia”.

“I was irritable and in constant fear of letting people down,” she added.

“I guess my depressive episodes were characterized by having very low energy. I would feel so lonely and sad – even guilty that I wasn’t doing what I needed to be doing for my career.”

Will a Bulletproof Backpack Save Your Life During a School Shooting?

The school shooting in Florida has renewed the question of what to do during an attack. Experts advise making a barricade between yourself and the shooter, leading Inside Edition to seek out what’s really going to stop a bullet. Jimmy Grammenos of Gun for Hire Academy in New Jersey used a .22 pistol and the larger 9 mm handgun to show what gives you a better chance of protection. A sign of the new times is that there are bulletproof backpacks for sale.

Parkland Students Are Not Happy About Their Clear Backpacks

The students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School are not impressed by their school’s new safety measure. Six weeks after a gunman killed 17 people at the Parkland, Florida, school, students were given clear backpacks they are required to wear in order to prevent anyone from bringing weapons onto campus.

Robert Runcie, the superintendent of Broward County Public Schools, announced the new policy last month, after the shooter’s brother was caught trespassing on campus, and two students were charged with carrying knives onto school grounds. Runcie also said students would be issued ID badges they must wear at all time while at school, and that the district is considering installing metal detectors.

Students were immediately critical of the decision, with one senior, Kyra Parrow, tweeting, “s/o to America for making my school seem like jail now because legislators don’t have common sense gun reform on their agendas.” Reactions weren’t any warmer when the backpacks were handed out on Monday after students returned from spring break.

Some students used the clear plastic backpacks to broadcast their opinions on the new requirement.

Since the shooting, Stoneman Douglas students have been at the forefront of a renewed push for stricter gun-control legislation. The new bags were issued just over a week after millions of people around the world joined Parkland students for the March for Our Lives protest for gun control.

“We’re going to make sure the best people get in our elections to run not as politicians, but as Americans. Because this,” Parkland survivor David Hogg said at the march in Washington D.C., pointing at the U.S. Capitol, “This is not cutting it.”

Stephon Clark Private Autopsy Results Revealed: 7 Gunshot Wounds in the Back

The findings of an independent autopsy commissioned by the family of Stephon Clark reveal that he was struck by a total of eight bullets, with up to seven of them hitting him in the back by the Sacramento police officers who fired on him earlier this month.

When officers responding to reports of break-ins in the Meadowview neighborhood came upon Clark, he was standing in the yard of his grandmother’s house. Moments prior, the 22-year-old was spotted running and hopping fences to the spot where he was located. Without much warning, the cops fired more than 20 shots and waited more than two minutes before beginning to engage an unresponsive Clark from afar. Dr. Omalu estimates that the unarmed suspect died between 3 and 10 minutes after he was struck.

Clark was shot once under the armpit, once in the leg, twice in the neck, and four times in his lower back. The examiner found that he suffered a shattered vertebrae and a collapsed lung.

“These findings from the independent autopsy contradict the police narrative that we’ve been told,” family attorney Benjamin Crump said of the results. “This independent autopsy affirms that Stephon was not a threat to police and was slain in another senseless police killing under increasingly questionable circumstances.”

Toxicology Shows Fentanyl in Prince’s Body Was ‘Exceedingly High’

According to a confidential toxicology report obtained by The Associated Press, Prince had exceedingly high amounts of Fentanyl in his system at the time of his death. The legendary musician was found alone and unresponsive in an elevator at his Paisley Park estate on April 21, 2016.

The report showed that Prince had 450 micrograms per kilogram of Fentanyl in his liver, adding that 69 micrograms per kilogram “seem to represent overdose or fatal toxicity cases.” The report added that there was a second lethal dose of undigested Fentanyl in his stomach at the time of his death.
