Singer Keke Wyatt reveals child is cancer-free, gushes over new husband

Keke Wyatt is celebrating some good news. TMZ reported Thursday that she announced she has a new husband and that one of her children is cancer-free. She announced the news in a video.

“I went through a really rough patch for about a year,” she said, referring to her ex-husband, Michael Ford, divorcing her while she was pregnant with her ninth child. “I was eight months pregnant, and I was hormonal. And I thought I wanted something that wasn’t for me.”

“The fact that I’m laughing and smiling is a beautiful thing,” she said. 

Wyatt’s video, in which she discusses her new husband, ex, and child’s health, is at TMZ.com.

Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade have welcomed their first child together into the world.

“We are sleepless and delirious but so excited to share that our miracle baby arrived last night via surrogate and 11/7 will forever be etched in our hearts as the most loveliest of all the lovely days,” the couple said in their posts, published at the same time on each of their profiles. “Welcome to the party sweet girl!”

The couple did not say the baby’s name.

The news of the arrival comes months after Union, 46,  spoke publicly and candidly about being diagnosed with adenomyosis, which she said came at the end of her attempts to get pregnant.

“Towards the end of my fertility journey, I finally got some answers, because everyone said, ‘You’re a career woman, you’ve prioritized your career, you waited too long and now you’re just too old to have a kid — and that’s on you for wanting a career,’” she said. “The reality is, I actually have adenomyosis.”

Adenomyosis, according to the Seckin Endometriosis Center in New York, is a form of endometriosis that causes the tissue that forms the lining of the uterus to grow into the uterus muscle, damaging the uterus wall.

Union previously discussed her struggles to get pregnant in her 2017 memoir, “We’re Going to Need More Wine,” revealing she “had eight or nine miscarriages.

This is Union’s first child. The actress is stepmother to three boys: Wade’s nephew Dahveon Morris, 16, whom he adopted, and Zaire, 15, and Zion, 10, sons from a previous marriage.

The baby girl is the fourth biological child for Wade, 36. He is also father to  a 4-year-old son, Xavier, who lives with his mother. Xavier was conceived when Union and Wade were broken up in 2013.

Simply red: It's National Love Your Red Hair Day

Gingers, snap to attention with pride, because Monday is National Love Your Red Hair Day.

>> Read more trending news 

The idea was submitted in August 2015 by Adrienne Vendetti and Stephanie Vendetti, sisters who co-founded the website How To Be a Redhead. The registrar at the National Day Calendar accepted the idea and decreed that the day would be celebrated annually on Nov. 5.

So if you have red hair, you can revel in your day, knowing that history has been full of men and women with fiery tresses. Prince Harry, Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth I sported red locks. Several U.S. presidents had natural red hair -- some only in their youth, before politics turned them gray -- including George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson, Martin Van Buren, Rutherford B. Hayes and Calvin Coolidge.

Lucille Ball, Katharine Hepburn, Bette Davis, Nicole Kidman, Molly Ringwald, Axl Rose, Jessica Chastain, Geri Halliwell, Julia Roberts, Bette Midler, Reba McEntire and Ron Howard are some famous redheads, along with the ultimate Ginger, Tina Louise of “Gilligan’s Island” fame.

Even some animated figures are famous redheads, such as Ariel of “The Little Mermaid,” Jessica Rabbit. Princess Fiona from “Shrek,” Wilma and Pebbles Flintstone, Lois Griffin from “Family Guy,” Daphne Blake of “Scooby Doo” fame and Carmen Sandiego. 

And don’t forget Annie from the “Little Orphan Annie” comic strip.

'SNL' star Pete Davidson slammed for mocking candidate who lost eye in Afghanistan

"Saturday Night Live" star Pete Davidson is making headlines again – but this time, not for his breakup with singer Ariana Grande.

In Saturday's "Weekend Update" segment, the comedian cracked jokes about political candidates' looks, including former Navy SEAL Dan Crenshaw, a Texas Republican running for Congress. Crenshaw wears a patch over his right eye, which he lost in an IED blast in Afghanistan, CNN reported.

"This guy's kinda cool, Dan Crenshaw," Davidson said. "You may be surprised to hear he's a congressional candidate from Texas and not a hit man in a porno movie." 

He laughed, then added: "I'm sorry; I know he lost his eye in war or whatever."

>> Watch the segment here (WARNING: Discretion advised)

Crenshaw took to Twitter to respond to Davidson's comments.

"Good rule in life: I try hard not to offend; I try harder not to be offended," Crenshaw tweeted Sunday. "That being said, I hope @nbcsnl recognizes that vets don’t deserve to see their wounds used as punchlines for bad jokes."

The National Republican Congressional Committee also issued a statement slamming Davidson.

It all started when the Washington Post's Philip Rucker shared the following tweet from the rally: 

"It’s been said a million times, but here’s a million and one — Trump’s rallies are unlike anything else in politics," he wrote. "Currently, Rihanna’s 'Don’t Stop the Music' is blaring in Chattanooga as aides toss free Trump T-shirts into the crowd, like a ball game. Everyone’s loving it."

Everyone except Rihanna, that is.

"Not for much longer ... me nor my people would ever be at or around one of these tragic rallies, so thanks for the heads up philip," she replied.
