Gucci Mane and his wife Keyshia Ka’oir are expecting their first child together.

The 40-year-old rap star revealed the happy news via Instagram, posting a picture of Keyshia wearing lingerie and showing off her growing baby bump on the photo-sharing platform.

Gucci – who also has a 12-year-old son from a previous relationship – captioned the image: ”My wife pregnant my life is great @keyshiakaoi [love heart emoji] [fire emoji] (sic)”

And Keyshia – who married the rapper back in 2017 – also posted a similar image on her own Instagram page.

The loved-up couple tied the knot at the Four Seasons in Miami, Florida, after he popped the question the previous year during an Atlanta Hawks basketball game.

The celebrity duo made sure no expenses were spared as they splashed out $1.7 million on the lavish ceremony and Keyshia even walked towards her husband on an elevated aisle.

They exchanged vows in front of their friends and family, including the likes of Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, Karrueche Tran, Rick Ross and Big Sean.

Prior to her big day, Keyshia admitted that she wanted it to be a ”royal wedding”.

The 35-year-old model – who has two daughters and a son from a previous relationship – explained: ”I want a royal wedding! All white with diamonds and crystals.

”I don’t know if it’s the wedding. I don’t know if it’s the fame … I don’t know if it’s because who my husband is gonna be. Everybody has been going coco-loco on me.”

The couple first started dating in 2010, and Keyshia subsequently stuck by Gucci when he served 39 months in prison for possession of a firearm.

Here’s why music fans are salty about this year’s Grammy nominations

The nominations for the 63rd annual Grammy Awards are finally here, but it’s left a lot of people scratching their heads in bewilderment. Not only are there a number of names on there that have somehow avoided hitting the radar all year, but there are also a few prominent artists missing from certain categories.

Perhaps the most notable is the absence of The Weeknd from all categories; a remarkable notion when you consider the fact that After Hours is his most iconic release yet, with the song Blinding Lights being one of the most well-played tracks of the year. The Weeknd hasn’t taken this snub lying down either, Tweeting earlier today: “The Grammys remain corrupt. You owe me, my fans and the industry transparency…”

Instead of Blinding Lights we have comparably mediocre singles like Black Pumas’ Colors and DaBaby’s Rockstar ft. Roddy Ricch up for Record of the Year, admittedly among the more deserving Black Parade by Beyonce, Doja Cat’s Say So, Billie Eilish’s Everything I Wanted, Dua Lipa’s Don’t Start Now, Post Malone’s Circles and Megan Thee Stallion’s Savage ft. Beyonce.

Meanwhile, After Hours was passed over in favour of Taylor Swift’s Folklore, Dua Lipa’s Future Nostalgia, Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding and Haim’s Women In Music Pt. III which would be fine but… Jhené Aiko’s Chilombo? Jacob Collier’s Djesse Vol.3? Black Pumas again? COLDPLAY’S EVERYDAY LIFE?! Are we seriously saying those four records are more deserving of a Grammys nod than After Hours?

At least Harry Styles made an appearance among Best Pop Vocal Album nominations with Fine Line, while his song Watermelon Sugar gets a Best Pop Solo Performance nod. Not quite the main categories we expected of him, but as it turns out Harry’s team submitted Adore You for Record of the Year and Song of the Year rather than Watermelon Sugar, so we can hardly blame the Grammys for that one. Likewise, the reason why you won’t see Cardi B’s WAP anywhere is simply because she hasn’t submitted it for the 2021 awards, choosing instead to submit it next year to coincide with the forthcoming album release.

It was the Best Rap Album list that came completely out of leftfield this year. We’d go as far as to say that every single one of them was a surprise to see on there. Instead of the impressive youth patrol of rappers including Lil Baby with My Turn, Lil Uzi Vert with Eternal Atake and posthumous releases from Juice Wrld (Legends Never Die) and Pop Smoke (Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon), we get a bunch of has-beens with albums that nobody’s been listening to this year: namely D Smoke’s Black Habits, Freddie Gibbs & The Alchemist’s Alfredo, Jay Electronica’s A Written Testimony, Nas’ King’s Disease and Royce Da 5’9″‘s The Allegory.

Pop Smoke and Lil Baby did at least get nominated for Best Rap Performance for their respective singles Dior and The Bigger Picture. Not really enough to restore our faith in the Grammys, but it’s a worthy gesture.

Another name that didn’t pop up quite as often as we thought it would was K-Pop titans BTS, who only have one nomination and that’s for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance with their song Dynamite. It is, however, the first K-Pop nomination we’ve ever seen amongst the Grammys, so that is actually an example of progress. 

On the other hand, we have no idea what happened to the Country section of the Grammy nominations, because Country Music Awards and Academy of Country Music Awards’ Album of the Year winner Luke Combs failed to get even a blink in any category despite the acclaim for his sophomore album What You See Is What You Get

A few disappointments then, but at least the Grammys are one thing we can’t blame on COVID-19 or Trump.

Gigi Hadid voices her support for Somali model Halima Aden over her regrets over Hijab use in fashion shoots

gigi hadid 2188484

Gigi Hadid has thrown her support behind Somali model Halima Aden after she spoke out about her regrets of not wearing a Hijab in fashion shoots.

The 23-year-old fashion model took to her Instagram Stories this week to reflect on the various shoots she has done over the years, including her 2017 Arabia cover, and admitted she “made mistakes” when it came to representation of the head covering worn by Muslim women.

Alongside the cover, she wrote: “This wasn’t ‘representation’, this was mockery. I was too young and naive to see it back then.”

She said: “Thanks to Covid-19 and the break away from the industry, I have finally realised where I went wrong in my personal hijab journey.”

Halima admitted she wished she’d always worn her black Hijab like she did for her first campaign for Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty.

She wrote: “I wish I never stopped bringing my black hijab to set. Because the minute I got comfortable … well, let’s just say I got too carried away.”

And on her American Eagle Outfitters campaign where she had a pair of jeans on her head, she added: “As if we ever needed these brands to represent hijabis. They need us. Never the other way around. But I was so desperate back then for any ‘representation’ that I lost touch with who I was.”

And following the post, supermodel Gigi – whose mother, Yolanda Hadid, is Dutch and father, Mohamed Hadid, is Palestinian – has said she is “proud” of her friend for speaking out on her regrets in order to “get back on track with what feels genuine”.

The 25-year-old beauty wrote on her Instagram Stories: “Everyone should go check out @Halima’s story right now.

“It is so important, as a hijabi or not, to self reflect and get back on track with what feels genuine to us – It’s the only way to feel truly fulfilled.

“I learnt through therapy once that if we are assertive with our boundaries, it does not mean that we are ungrateful for opportunity, and it will lead to an end result that does not feel hollow, one where we do not feel take advantaged of.

“Learning that helped me so much.

“My sis Halima, you have inspired me since the day I met you and you continue to make me proud.

“Keep shining, big love. (sic)”

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley | Rosie Huntington-Whiteley uses luxury towels in skincare routine

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley uses luxury towels to help her acne-prone skin.

The 33-year-old model expanded her skincare routine to include a set of towels by Resorè as she realised the importance that the “beautiful, luxurious, fast-drying and soft” towels have by touching her fresh skin.

She told Mecca: “I never thought much about my towels before except perhaps thread count and colour. But as someone with acne-prone skin, I wondered when we spend money on expensive and luxurious skincare, and towels touch our skin daily, why shouldn’t a face towel have as much importance?”

The $99 set is made from Aegean Turkish cotton and includes ingredients like silverbac, which breaks down germs and odours, lyocell, which gently removes oil, bacteria and sebum, and rayon bamboo, which absorbs moisture and doesn’t irritate the skin.

It comes after Rosie spend lockdown by prioritising evenings in the bathroom whilst focusing on her own self-care.

She added: “As someone who is really obsessed with interiors and who spends a lot of time in my bathroom, I’m always looking for those things to make the bathroom feel a little bit special and indulgent.”

Meanwhile, Rosie has three-year-old Jack with her actions star fiancé Jason Statham and although she has nailed her mummy morning make-up routine she has trouble keeping all her products in her bag as her tot likes to play with them.

She previously revealed: “I’d like to say takes 15 mins, but that would be a load of bollocks. I hydrate my skin using iS Clinical Cleansing Complex, and ZO Skin Health Complexion Renewal Pads, then finish with iS Clinical Super Serum Advance.

“I dot Hourglass Vanish Airbrush Concealer where I need it, then apply its Ambient Lighting Bronzer and Confession Lipstick on my lips and cheeks. My son is obsessed with the lipsticks – he thinks they’re swords.”
