Yolanda Hadid is ”waiting patiently” for Gigi Hadid‘s baby to arrive.

The ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ star can’t wait to become a grandmother when her daughter Gigi welcomes her first child with Zayn Malik.

Alongside a photo of her cradling her daughter’s baby bump, she wrote: ”Waiting patiently for her angel to be born … (sic)”

Meanwhile, Yolanda – who is also mother to models Bella and Anwar Hadid – previously expressed her excitement at becoming a grandmother for the first time.

Speaking a few days before Gigi confirmed her pregnancy, Yolanda said: ”Still shocked our little secret got leaked to the press.

”Of course we are so excited. I’m excited to become Oma in September especially after I lost my mom so recently. But this is the beauty of life, one soul leaves us and a new one comes in. We feel very blessed.”

Apart from confirming her pregnancy, Gigi has largely kept her pregnancy off social media, something she feels she should do because she says there is too much going on in the world – like COVID-19 and the Black Lives Matter movement.

Speaking on an Instagram Live, she said: ”Obviously, I think a lot of people are confused why I’m not sharing more, but like, I’m pregnant through a pandemic. My pregnancy is not the most important thing going on in the world. That’s a reason that I felt that it’s not really something that I need to share, apart from with my family and friends. Obviously a lot of people have lost lives due to coronavirus that was in the beginning of quarantine and is still happening. And then we moved obviously into the reemergence of the Black Lives Matter movement, and I thought that our presence on social media should be used for that.”

Carrie Underwood | Carrie Underwood almost quit American Idol

Carrie Underwood almost quit ‘American Idol’ due to her nerves about the finals.

The 37-year-old singer rose to fame after competing in, and winning, the fourth season of the talent competition in 2005, but has now revealed her life could have been very different, as she almost walked away from her ‘American Idol’ audition because she was so scared about performing to a large audience.

Recalling the moment she decided to audition for the show, she said: “The summer before my senior year, I was home one day, watching TV and saw a news segment about people auditioning for the show ‘American Idol’, I checked online. The closest auditions were being held in St. Louis. ‘How far away is St. Louis?’ I asked my mom. ‘Six or seven hours in the car,’ she said. Too far, I thought. Out of the question. ‘Why do you want to know?’ Mom asked. ‘They’re having ‘American Idol’ auditions there.’ ‘I’ll take you.’ Just like that.”

Carrie said she expected the process to be easy, but was left “terrified” of performing in front of the judging panel, and very nearly decided not to go to her audition.

She added to GuidePosts magazine: “It would be easy to say the rest is history, that it was meant to be. But it didn’t feel like that at the time. Going through a slew of auditions in St. Louis, getting the ‘golden ticket’ to Hollywood, every contestant’s dream, I was terrified. Every time I had to sing in front of the judges I’d get nervous the way I did in church that first time. Then I’d say a prayer and leave it in God’s hands. 

“All at once it was just too much. Going out to Los Angeles by myself, competing with all these other people who were so talented. I burst into tears. My dad turned to me in the backseat. ‘Carrie,’ he said, ‘we can go home right now, and we don’t ever have to talk about it again.’ I took a deep breath. ‘No,’ I said at last. ‘I’ll go.’ ”

Matt Goss | Luke and Matt Goss are ‘closer than ever’

Luke and Matt Goss are now “closer than ever”.

The twins first found international fame as part of the boyband Bros and despite their split in the early 90s, they have a “loving relationship” following their on-stage comeback in 2017.

Luke said: “Bros is back in the sense that we’re planning the new album.

“We’re coming up with our individual songs that we’re going to mush together.”

The brothers appeared in the documentary film ‘Bros: After the Screaming Stops’ in 2018, and Luke admits it’s proven to be a turning point in his career.

The London-born star – who now lives in Los Angeles – told the BBC: “The definitive Bros album is coming up. We’re working on it next year. And that might not have happened before [the documentary].”

Luke, 52, has been writing new music amid the coronavirus crisis, and he’s planning to release a rare solo single titled ‘Free’ in December.

He explained that his recent work has been made without any “compromise”.

Luke said: “I’m very proud of this music. It’s the first music I’ve ever made that is entirely my taste without compromise, so it’s a big statement. It’s me being me.”

The music star is also appearing in a new film called ‘The Loss Adjuster’, in which he plays a character who hits rock bottom before working his way back.

Luke admitted it’s a situation he can relate to.

He said: “A dark comedy in some ways.

“But I know how that feels, as most men do, where they’ve gone to that point where there’s that moment of crisis within their own prowess, financially or in their work or whatever, and it’s a moment of reinvention.”

Joe Russo | Joe Russo hails ‘brave’ Wonder Woman move

Joe Russo thinks the decision to send ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ straight to streaming is “incredibly brave”.

The new Patty Jenkins-directed movie – which stars Gal Gadot as the titular character – is set to premiere on HBO Max in the US, and Joe believes the decision represents a “bold” move on the part of Patty and Warner Bros.

He explained: “I think Patty Jenkins said it best. She made something that she put an incredible amount of love and joy into, and now she’s ready to share it with the world. I think it’s incredibly brave and bold of her as a filmmaker.”

A number of big-budget films have been released on streaming platforms in recent months, with cinemas being forced to close because of the coronavirus pandemic.

And Joe, 49, now thinks that streaming platforms like HBO Max represent the future of the movie industry.

The director – who previously helmed ‘Avengers: Endgame’ and ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ alongside his brother Anthony Russo – told Collider: “I do think that this is the future of the business. There can be room for both digital and theatrical, and in fact, both could perhaps enhance each other’s business and experience.”

Meanwhile, Patty recently urged fans to watch the new ‘Wonder Woman’ movie in cinemas if it’s safe to do so.

The acclaimed filmmaker took to Twitter to address the issue of the film’s release.

She wrote on the micro-blogging platform: “THE TIME HAS COME. At some point you have to choose to share any love and joy you have to give, over everything else. We love our movie as we love our fans, so we truly hope that our film brings a little bit of joy and reprieve to all of you this holiday season.

“Watch it in THEATRES, where it is made safe to do so (check out the great work theatres have done to make it so!) And available in the safety of your home on HBOMAX where it is not. Happy holidays to all of you. We hope you enjoy our film as much as we enjoyed making it. (sic)”
