The shortlist for ‘Celebrity Mum of the Year Award 2017’ has been announced

The British public have spoken and have nominated their most loved celebrity mum of the year but is your favourite on the list?

It’s been a year of celebrity mums announcing they’re pregnant and giving birth. Cheryl and Liam Payne welcomed their first child, a baby boy called Bear Grey Payne, The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton recently confirmed she’s expecting baby number three and Coleen Rooney also announced her three sons Kai, Klay and Kit are going to have a new brother or sister. Made In Chelsea star Binky Felstead welcomed baby India, her first child with co-star Joshua ‘JP’ Patterson and former TOWIE star Amy Childs gave birth to a daughter named Polly.

Now, the shortlist for the 3D-lipo ‘Celebrity Mum of The Year Award 2017’ has been announced and we can’t decide which celebrity mum we think should win.

This award has been running for a whopping 16 years and is dedicated to honour the celebrity mum who has best demonstrated her ability to balance her role as a celebrity and being a mother.

Past winners include Billie Faiers, Giovanna Fetcher, Holly Willoughby, Katie Price and Stacey Solomon.

This year is totally different though and none of the past winners are up for the award. These are the celebrity mums you can vote for this year:

This year’s list includes reality stars, singers and even royalty.

Amal Clooney

George Clooney’s wife Amal gave birth to twins in June this year. She welcomed Ella and Alexander into the world and have kept them fairly private from the spotlight.

Amy Childs

Original TOWIE star Amy Childs gave birth to her first child Polly this year. The reality star has posted the sweetest snaps of her little girl and although she split from her baby daddy Bradley Wright she has assured everyone, “Brad will of course see Polly whenever he likes and they will remain friends.”

Coleen Rooney

WAG Coleen hasn’t had the easiest of times this year. It was all going well in the summer and the yummy mummy even confirmed she’s pregnant with her fourth child before husband Wayne was arrested for drink driving.

Emily Andre

Emily and her husband Peter Andre welcomed their second child together Theodore last year but have kept him and his older sister Amelia out of the spotlight. Pete regularly tells everyone that his wife isn’t fond of him posting photos of their children online but that hasn’t stopped him.

Cheryl Tweedy

Of course, one of the most know celebrity pregnancy this year was Cheryl Tweedy and Liam Payne. The happy couple only confirmed the news after they stepped out in London with Chezza’s big bump. We still haven’t seen a photo of Bear Grey Payne but apparently he’s the spitting image of his dad.

Kate Middleton

The Duchess of Cambridge is pregnant with her third child. The gorgeous mum and Prince William, who are already parents to Prince George and Princess Charlotte, confirmed the news in a statement.

Binky Felstead

Our favourite Made in Chelsea star and her co-star Josh Patterson welcomed their first child together earlier this year – India. The reality stars had actually split before their pregnancy news but reunited while Binks was pregnant.

Anna Saccone-Joly

Vlogger and mum-of-three Anna Saccone-Joly is also up for the award. She is a mum to Emilia who is four, Eduardo who is two and a six-month-old daughter.

Faryal Makhdoom

Faryal Makhdoom and her husband Amir Khan have split following a Twitter row and cheating accusations. Shortly after their bitter separation, the 26-year-old model announced she’s pregnant with her second child but will be raising her little one alone.

Geri Horner

Spice Girl Geri Horner welcomed her second child, son Monty, into the world at the age of 44-years-old and has described conceiving naturally in her fourties as “a miracle”. She also has a daughter named Bluebell.

Voting is open until Friday 13th October 2017 here.

Harry Styles is no longer the most popular member of One Direction

 

Harry Styles may have released his debut solo album ‘Harry Styles’ earlier this year and about to star in his first ever movie Dunkirk, but if you go by Twitter followers, he has been taken over as the most popular member by Niall Horan!

It seems Niall has the Irish charm as he’s now the most loved on Twitter.

After releasing his solo track ‘This Town’ and ‘Slow Hands’, Niall’s followers have shot up to a massive 30.9 million, with Harry’s followers currently sitting at 30.8 million.

See the One Direction boys’ Twitter followers below:

1) Niall Horan: 30.9 million

2) Harry Styles: 30.8 million

3) Louis Tomlinson: 25.2 million

4) Liam Payne: 25.1 million

Just last week Niall delighted fans on Twitter when he revealed he will be going on tour later in the year.

Announcing ‘Flicker Sessions 2017’, Niall will be playing a date in Dublin and London before moving on to Sweden, Australia, Japan, America and Mexico.

The ‘Slow Hands’ singer was forced to explain to fans why he isn’t playing more dates across the UK and his home country Ireland.

Sharing a handwritten note, Niall wrote, ‘Hi guys. It’s been incredible to see such an amazing reaction to the ‘Flicker Session’. Thank you so much as per usual for your love and support. For those of you wondering why I’m not stopping nearer you this time please bear with me a little longer while I plan 2018. [sic].

He continued, ‘This is just the beginning and an opportunity for me to re-learn the craft of doing shows and touring in general. Please stay patient and there will be more exiting news soon. Love you all, Nialler xx’ [sic].

 

Meanwhile the rest of the One Direction boys are super busy working on their solo projects. Harry Styles is set to attend the UK premiere of Christopher Nolan’s movie Dunkirk this evening (Thursday 13th July).

Staring alongside the likes of Tom Hardy and Mark Rylance, Harry portrays the role of a World War II soldier living life throughout the evacuation of Dunkirk in 1940.

The 23-year-old also dropped his debut solo single ‘Sign Of The Times’ back in April and released his self titled solo album in May.

 

Sweet Creature is available now. Album is available in ten days. I am available always.

As well as looking after his new son Bear, Liam Payne has also been a busy boy promoting his new music.

Liam scored a number 3 hit with his song ‘Strip That Down’ and just last week released his new single ‘Get Low’ with German producer Zedd.

After the success of his track ‘Just Hold On’ featuring Steve Aoki, Louis Tomlinson has teamed up with American singer Bebe Rexha and Digital Farm Animals for his new single ‘Back To You’.

Louis teased the track to his socials over the weekend and confirmed the new single will drop on July 21st.

We can’t wait to hear the full thing!

The 1D boys have come a long way in their solo careers since the band started their hiatus in January 2016.

Watch the video below to see the boys’ journey to solo stardom:

 

Dua Lipa gave us some INCREDIBLE career advice about being a singer and you NEED to hear it

Fancy a career in music? Of course, you do! After all, belting out tracks by all your fave artists sounds like the dream gig, right?!

In fact… if you ask us, it’s the job that we were MADE for!

Okay, let’s put the silliness aside for a minute or two. On a slightly, more serious note, there’s no denying that trying to break into the music industry is tough.

Up-and-coming musicians are everywhere nowadays. Plus we can’t help but feel a little bit of sheer luck is needed to become ‘the next big thing’.

That said, a job as a singer is totally doable. If you don’t believe us, just ask, Dua Lipa. We recently caught up with the popstar about her empowering new album, which sounds something like this…

Incredible, right?

As a website that also likes to empower young people, we took the opportunity to ask Dua Lipa for some tips and advice for teenagers who dream of having their music in the charts someday.

Unsurprisingly, her advice was brilliant. Here’s what she said.

 

“Well my advice would be to set your intentions on your goals and to never lose site of them. Also work really, really hard,” she told Maximum Pop! “There are going to be so many times where you’re going to find yourself a bit confused and want to give up in a way, but don’t do it! Keep going, because if you’re very persistent and you work hard and believe in your art, there will be a way and you’ll make it work – absolutely.”

Not sure about you guys, but this is giving us all those epic ‘you got this!’ feels. It makes the dream feel soooooo much more achievable.

Before You Roast Zayn Malik Over That GoFundMe Page, Here’s The Story Behind It

When Zayn Malik attempted to help his mom’s best friend with her medical expenses, by spreading the word about her GoFundMe page, he was met with surprise criticism.

Unfortunately this good deed backfired in a matter of minutes, with some fans wondering why he didn’t pay for it himself.

Tired of the negative comments he was receiving, Ayesha explained why Zayn shared the link in the first place.

I asked my “nephew” Zayn Malik to drum up some publicity for me, by way of hilightning my page and illness via Twitter. This has had an adverse effect for him as the spiteful trolls are attacking him for his kindness.

 

And there was actually a really good reason why Zayn didn’t come out of pocket to cover the medical expenses himself: Ayesha asked him not to.

“Never, ever would I ask him for financial help in any way, and I wouldn’t want it any other way. My request was for him to enlighten the public of my sad plight and he did exactly as I asked. So come on all you trolls, give him a break please and let’s just get on with the fundraising.”

Despite the naysayers, Zayn has spread the word to nearly 22 million fans and Ayesha has already raised over €15K.

And that’s awesome!

Fans think they’ve figured out the name of Cheryl and Liam’s son

Fans of Cheryl and Liam Payne have been quite frankly having a bit of a meltdown over the fact they think they have figured out the biggest mystery since how did life on earth begin, just what is the name of their new baby boy?

According to the website famousbirthdays.com the baby’s name has been listed as Taylor Payne. This might just be some elaborate joke but Liam did say in an interview a few years back that male or female he wanted to call his first child Taylor as he loved the name.

Of course there’s been no confirmation from either camp about whether this is the little ones name, however they are running out of time to register.

Here’s a look back at the news the notoriously private couple have shared about their little one…

Cheryl and Liam broke the news that they’d welcomed their first child together on Saturday 25th March by posting an adorable snap of baby Payne in his daddy’s arms.

The former Girls Aloud singer shared details about her new arrival and confirmed he was born on Wednesday 22nd March, weighing 7lb 9.

She wrote, ‘On Wednesday 22nd March Liam and I became parents to an incredibly beautiful, healthy baby boy, weighing 7lb 9 and looking like a dream. Although he still doesn’t have a name he is already stealing hearts. We are all madly in love and overwhelmingly happy with our little arrival. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers around the world. A day that now has a different meaning to me forever 💙’

Sharing less details about his son and more about his own feelings, Liam admitted he was ‘speechless’ and told fans it was his ‘favourite memory’ from his life so far.

He wrote, ‘My close friends and family know there are very few times when I’m left speechless… wow!’

‘I’m incredibly happy to welcome our new baby boy into the world, it’s a moment that I will never forget for the rest of my life and my favourite memory I have so far.’

‘I’m completely in awe of his incredible mother and how she has been the whole way through this, she’s really made my dreams come true. We haven’t named him yet but he’s already capturing hearts including mine. I feel very blessed.’

‘Happy Mother’s Day everyone!’

Despite Cheryl staying quiet since the birth, proud dad Liam couldn’t resist updating fans on how he was finding fatherhood not long after the birth.

In a tweet composed at 2.31am, Liam shared a hilarious gif of Ross from TV show Friends shouting “NO! No, no!” alongside the caption, ‘When the fourth nappy happens in 5 minutes’.

The ‘History’ singer also thanked fans and friends for all of their messages of support for the couple.

Fans thought they were given the first glimpse of the little one in April when Cheryl’s hair stylist Daya Ruci uploaded a snap of a newborn baby to his Snapchat account.

Of course fans were quick to speculate if the baby in the snap was baby Payne as it was reported Daya had been with

Cheryl over the Easter weekend.

Despite this, it was never confirmed and both Cheryl and Liam have since not shared any snaps of their little one!

Just a few weeks after welcoming his son with Cheryl, Liam flew out to America to reportedly put the final touches to his debut solo album. The former One Direction has since kept fans updated on his Instagram account.

 

Drake responds to model’s claim she’s pregnant with his baby

 

Drake’s team have responded to claim’s model Layla Lace is pregnant with his baby.

Earlier in the week, Layla posted on Instagram that she was pregnant with Drizzy’s baby after meeting him when he was in London for his Boy Meets World Tour.

However, sources close to Drizzy have told TMZ ‘ He’s never even met her’. Layla has since deleted her Instagram account, deleting all her claims in the process. With Drake’s team believing ‘he did it for attention and when people talked about her there was no need to keep the posts up.’

Not cool Layla! 👎

Drake is believed to currently be dating 19 year old UK singer Jorja Smith.

According to a national newspaper,Drake even visited Jorja in her West Midlands hometown of Walsall back in February, where the pair were spotted buying sweets in her local Co-op!

Sprarks got flying when Jorja worked with Drizzy on his ‘More Life’ album. Her vocals appear on track ‘Get It Together’ and she gets a starring moment on ‘Jorja Interlude’.

The pair have since been showing the love to each other on Instagram, with Jorja posting up a pic with the Drake lyrics ‘this Virgina done me off already’ as the caption.

Drake brought Jorja out on stage during the London and Birmingham gigs of his ‘Boy Meets World Tour’.

Liam Payne reveals the advice he gave Justin Bieber for dealing with fame

He’s been in the spotlight since the age of 14 with One Direction so Liam Payne certainly knows how to deal with fame and now he’s been giving advice to fellow superstar Justin Bieber.Ahead of the release of his debut solo album, Liam has been chatting to Rollercoaster Magazine about his life and revealed exactly what happened when he met up with the one and only Justin Bieber.

Liam revealed he understands the struggles Justin has faced in the media and believes he can relate with him. He said, “Obviously [Bieber]’s struggled a lot through the way the world looked upon him,” Liam says. “He’s a great guy; inside there’s a really good heart. I said,’ look, the difference between me and you is that I had four different boys going through the same thing to look to.”

Admitting he gave Justin his mobile number in case he ever needed a chat, Liam added, ” He didn’t have that. … I said to him, ‘listen, take my number and any time you want to have a chat, let me know because I’m here and I understand exactly what you’re going through and I understand your world.”
The 23-year-old also admitted he has a chaotic side and said he’s used to chaos. Speaking about Bieber he said, “He needs somebody like that and in that position … We all have this chaotic side to us. You know, they say that anger breeds passion. I think that’s the same with a lot of us, that we let things get chaotic very quickly. We’re used to chaos.”

Since One Direction announced their hiatus last year, Liam has been working hard on his solo music in the studio.

Back in July last year Liam revealed to fans he’d signed a solo deal with Capitol Records.

Taking to Instagram to share his news, Liam wrote, ‘I’m really happy to have signed to such a prestigious label as Capitol Records UK. Capitol Records has an amazing history stretching right back before even Frank Sinatra and I’m really looking forward to becoming part of their story. One Direction will always be my family, I’m now excited to show what I can do as a solo artist.’
It hasn’t yet been revealed when Liam’s solo music will drop, but we seriously can’t wait to hear it!

Drake brings Nicki Minaj out on stage during Paris show

Drake’s Boy Meets World Tour touched down in Paris last night, and fans were in for a treat.

As half way through the show at the AccorHotels Arena, Drizzy brought out Nicki Minaj out on stage. Nicki then launched into a performance of her tracks ‘Moment for Life’, ‘Only’ and ‘Truffle Butter’.

This video contains some language you wouldn’t use in front of you parents.

Cheryl just ‘revealed’ her pregnancy in these latest photos

Cheryl and boyfriend Liam Payne have stayed tight lipped so far as to whether or not they were expecting a child together, however these latest pictures seem to all but confirm it.

The pair found love late last year after knowing each other for years having met on The X Factor back in 2008.

After many loved up snaps on social media, rumours began circulating that the pair were expecting as the ‘Fight For This Love’ singer had a glow and a small bump that many thought must surely be her first child.

However, Cheryl’s latest public ventures have seen her dressed in baggy clothing or carefully choreographed photos.

Cheryl and Liam attended the Quintessentially Foundation’s Annual Fayre of St James’ Church, which held a charity concert for her charity Cheryl’s Trust.

If the pair are indeed expecting then it will be a first for child for both of them, however they can lean on their former bandmates for parenting advice as Louis Tomlinson from One Direction is a Dad to 11-month-old Freddie and Kimberly Walsh is mum to son Bobby and expecting her second child with husband Justin Scott.

After being unlucky in love for so long we really hope that this is all the happiness Cheryl ever hoped for.
