Mandy Moore says she’s feeling ‘utter gratitude’ after welcoming her first child August Harrison Goldsmith

Mandy Moore is in love with her new baby boy.

The actress, 36, recently welcomed her first child, son August Harrison Goldsmith, with her husband Taylor Goldsmith. She’s now given a sweet update on how she’s feeling “utter gratitude” since becoming a mother.

“Still processing how Gus’s birth unfolded with utter gratitude for my body, my support team and the journey our sweet boy took to meet us,” Moore captioned a black-and-white photo of her baby.

The photo was taken by Moore’s “magnificent” doula, Carson Meyer.

In an interview on the Informed Pregnancy Podcast, Moore said how she’d originally wanted a home birth but changed her plans.

She mentioned the “fantastic” doulas and said she “felt so immediately sold on this team that we had assembled, and from very early on in pregnancy, had them both on this journey with us.”

Moore said an issue involving a drop in her platelets meant she ruled out a home birth.

“My platelets have been dropping throughout pregnancy and it’s something I never thought about until I got, I’d say early to midway through my third trimester, they sort of started dropping pretty precipitously and fell below the threshold that would make it possible for me to do a home birth,” Moore said.

On February 24, Moore announced the happy news that August had arrived “right on his due date.”

“Gus is here,” Moore wrote in an Instagram post along with a photo. “He was punctual and arrived right on his due date much to the delight of his parents.”

She added they never expected to “fall in love in all sorts of brand new ways, but it goes beyond anything we could have ever imagined.”

Moore announced her pregnancy last September, with her husband who she married in 2018.

Olivia Wilde has congratulated the entire cast and crew of Ted Lasso — including ex Jason Sudeikis — for their recent award win.

In his acceptance speech, Sudeikis, 45, thanked Wilde, 36, for having “the initial idea to do this as a TV show.”

“I want to thank my kids, Otis and Daisy. I want to thank their mom Olivia, who had the initial idea to do this as a TV show, saying, ‘You and Brendan [Hunt] and Joe [Kelly] like doing that so much, you should do it as a movie or TV show.’ … She was right,” he said.

Wilde expressed her excitement for the show’s win via Twitter, saying, “Congrats to Jason and the entire Ted Lasso family on your @CriticsChoice wins! @jasonsudeikis @hanwaddingham @brendanhunting @joekellyjk47 @VDOOZER! So happy for you guys.”

“I hope this means we all keep wearing hoodies when the ceremonies are in person next year,” she joked.

Wilde and Sudeikis quietly separated in early 2020 but only made their breakup public in November. Two months later, the Booksmart director sparked dating rumours with Harry Styles after they were spotted holding hands at a friend’s wedding in Montecito, California. The former couple share two children, six-year-old Otis, and four-year-old Daisy.

Emilia Clarke opens up about the pressure to get injectables after being told she ‘needed’ fillers

Emilia Clarke has shared her priceless reaction after a facialist told her she “needed” lip fillers.

In a recent interview with Elle, the Game of Thrones star, 34, discussed her skin essentials while sharing the “worst skincare advice” she has ever received.

“I once had a facialist who told me I needed fillers and I showed her the door. I was literally just like, ‘get out’,” she recalled. “Her exact words were, ‘Then, you can have your face back.’ At that point, I was 28.”

Clarke added that she has a more healthy approach to skincare, sharing her thoughts on aging in the film industry and how young actors are favoured in comparison to older stars.

“You’ve got this idea of aging, and then you’ve got the idea of what aging makes you look like,” she told the publication. “At 34, I am wiser, more intelligent, I’ve had more experiences, I’ve done all this stuff and I’m proud of that. You can only do that because you are the age you are. Time is the only thing that allows you to do those things. So, if my face is gonna reflect the time that I’ve spent on this earth, I’m down for that.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIQhGZrlkig/

“I look to women and actors who are older than me who are f–king beautiful and I think what your skin does as you age is elegant. I can imagine them all saying ‘Ssh, you do not get to talk about this yet,’ but I’ve got lines on my forehead.'”

The Me Before You star also explained how facial fillers can’t be lit, and if she had surgery it would make her face “shiny and strange.” She also said she’s prepared to take a step back from Hollywood if necessary.

“I work in an industry where I’ve got to move my face, and I’ve got to be expressive,” Clarke said. “If my job is telling me that I need to have anything more than possibly a bit of Botox when I’m 45 or whatever, then I’ll stop doing the job.”

Where is Kate Walsh and what is she doing now?

Much to the delight of Perth residents, Kate Walsh has fallen in love with Western Australia.

The Grey’s Anatomy actress has called the city of Perth home for exactly a year and, unlike other Hollywood stars who have temporarily moved Down Under for work during the pandemic, she has no desire to leave any time soon.

RELATED: Why are there so many celebrities in Australia right now?

Walsh, 53, has been working on a number of projects in Perth, is dating a West Australian farmer, and has even brought her pets over from New York City — making it unlikely she’ll be returning to the US in the near future.

In fact, the actress is so invested in WA, she plans to open the state’s first-ever film and television studio there.

So how exactly did the Private Practice star end up in Australia?

How long has Kate Walsh been living in Australia?

The Umbrella Academy star has been in Australia since March 2020.

Why is Kate Walsh in Australia?

It was meant to be a holiday! The actress was visiting friends from WA in early 2020, and was spending time in one of the state’s wine regions when COVID-19 cases began popping up.

“I was down in Margaret River and then there was a lockdown,” Walsh said in an interview with 9Honey Celebrity last year, explaining that she then decided to get a place in the city.

Where in Perth does Kate Walsh live?

Walsh lives in the beach-side suburb of Cottesloe.

“I got a little place up here in Perth and that’s where I am,” she told 9Honey Celebrity. “And I have to say, I love it. I really love Perth. I love the city, I love the people and I feel very, very fortunate, obviously, to have quarantined there and be in WA during this kind of crazy time in the world.”

In fact, Walsh loves it so much she extended her travel visa last year so she could stay.

Who is Kate Walsh dating?

Walsh has even found love with farmer Andrew Nixon, from Moora, WA.

Though they’ve been dating a while, the couple only recently made their public debut. They posed for photos together at an event in February 2021.

The couple are believed to have met overseas and Nixon is apparently the reason Walsh is here in the first place.

What movies and TV shows has Kate Walsh starred in?

Walsh has starred in a number of films including Girls Trip, The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Under the Tuscan Sun.

She is perhaps best known for her roles in TV shows like Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice, Bad Judge, 13 Reasons Why and The Umbrella Academy.

Walsh hasn’t filmed any projects since arriving in Australia last year, but a bunch of movies and TV shows she filmed prior to relocating have since come out.

The second season of The Umbrella Academy dropped in late July, the show Emily in Paris was released in October and the film Honest Thief came out not long after.

It hasn’t been all ‘play’ and no work while in Australia. Walsh made her WA stage debut in October 2020 for the Fremantle production of The Other Place.

She’s also been hard at work assisting Premier Mark McGowan and the WA Labor Party in their pledge to build a $100 million film studio in Fremantle. She told 9Honey Celebrity last year that she sees a future for film and television in WA.

“One of the first thoughts I had when I looked around Perth was, ‘Why aren’t we shooting movies and television here?'” she told us. “I mean, of course there’s locations and there are productions, but on a larger scale to sort of compete with the east coast… Then as I started meeting people in Screenwest and independent producers and crew members and directors and writers and local politicians and everything, I understood that it’s because there aren’t stages built.

“So I’ve been quite passionate and vocal about trying to get that happening. To have a proper studio, so we have access to some of the great international productions that are coming to Australia at large now.”

She posted the above photo on Instagram and got a comment from her Grey’s Anatomy co-star Patrick Dempsey, who said “you [gotta] love the Australians !!! and you look fantastic!!”.

Does Kate Walsh have children?

Walsh doesn’t have kids. She opened up about the fact in 2015, telling Maria Menounos on her SiriusXM radio show that she couldn’t have kids because she went through early menopause.

“I don’t have children. I’m not going to have kids,” Walsh, who was 48 at the time, said. “I went through early menopause.”

Does Kate Walsh have Instagram?

Yes! The honorary sandgroper has been frequently updating fans on her WA adventures over at her Instagram page.

Gillian Anderson says the heated reaction to her American accent is ‘old news’

Gillian Anderson isn’t too phased by people’s questions over her accent.

Anderson, who recently won a Golden Globe for her performance in The Crown, sparked some confusion on Twitter when she accepted her award in an American accent.

Many viewers were thrown off, thinking Anderson was British when she was actually born in Chicago, Illinois. She’s bidialectal and can speak in whichever accent she chooses.

“I don’t have social media on my phone so I wasn’t [aware],” she told ET before the 2021 Critics Choice Awards. “A couple of people texted to say that something was going on, I didn’t pay any attention to it because it’s just something that I live.”

Anderson called the reaction “old news” as she’s used to switching between a British and American accent. Anderson spent parts of her childhood in London and currently resides there.

“I grew up between two countries and so depending on who is in my ear is which direction my accent goes,” she said. “So I’m so used to it that it’s kind of old news for me.”

Anderson also addressed Alec Baldwin’s response to her acceptance speech. When the topic was being debated on Twitter, Baldwin called her out writing, “Switching accents? That sounds … fascinating.”

The remark was a subtle reference to the backlash his wife Hilaria Baldwin has received over her cultural heritage. He subsequently deactivated his Twitter account.

“It’s so not a newsworthy item, but I’m sad that it’s caused him so much distress,” she said of Baldwin’s tweet.

Today, Anderson won another award for Best Supporting Actress at the Critic’s Choice Awards.

Amy Schumer is reflecting on life before COVID-19.

The 39-year-old comedian shared a slideshow of photos on Instagram with some happy memories with friends and family prior to the pandemic.

Schumer captioned the images, “One year into this pandemic today I’m missing my sister @kimcaramele being on the road with my best friend @rachelfeinstein_ hanging at the @comedycellarusa with my nemesis @keithrobinson438 and my dad.”

She concluded the post by asking her 10.5 million followers, “What are you missing today?”

In a recent interview with The New York Times, Schumer shared her fears about her father’s health amid the pandemic. Her father, Gordon David Schumer, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis when she was 12 years old.

“I’m worried about my dad, who is in assisted living where 15 people have died. My mom is alone. It’s upsetting,” she told the outlet. “And my friends who are nurses, a lot of them had it. But my day-to-day is nice. It’s nice to have a baby because it gives you a routine, and he doesn’t know what’s going on.”

“I’m not going to go to the Comedy Cellar for a year at least — It’s the biggest risk. If I didn’t have a baby, I might be a little more chill,” she said. “You care if you die less if you don’t. But now, I’m like, I better stay alive, I guess.”

Helen Mirren says coronavirus lockdown made her marriage ‘normal’ after years of travelling

Dame Helen Mirren is grateful for coronavirus lockdown as it’s given her a “normal” life with her husband.

The 75-year-old actress says she’s been able to spend more time with her partner, director Taylor Hackford, at their home in Lake Tahoe, California.

“My husband and I have been married for 30-something years, you know, a very long time,” she told The Telegraph’s Stella Magazine, “But in all that time because of the nature of both of our work we’ve always been looking at suitcases, at packing.

“The suitcases are always on the floor ready to be packed or unpacked. We have literally never spent this amount of time together.

“[The year] could have been disastrous but has actually been fantastic.”

Mirren added that it’s been great to “have what most people have” which she describes as “normal, regular, repetitive lives, but comfortable lives.”

“So it’s been a wonderful way for the two of us to bond, in a weird way. I think it’s been a very bonding experience,” she added.

Despite the pair enjoying their time together, The Queen star said it’s “upsetting” to see the effects of the pandemic in the theatre industry.

“It’s the live performers, the ballet dancers, the singers — all of that world that is such a wonderful part of London has been so devastated,” Mirren said. “But it will come back with a vengeance I believe. People will be so ready for it.”

Rita Wilson reflects on contracting COVID-19 one year ago in heartfelt Instagram post

Rita Wilson marked the one-year anniversary of her and husband Tom HanksCOVID-19 diagnoses with a reflective Instagram post.

“One year ago today I was playing the Sydney Opera House @sydneyoperahouse, the next day started feeling very tired and achy, two days later hospitalized with Covid 19,” Wilson wrote. “I want to take a moment to say how grateful we are for our health, how thankful we are for the medical care we got in Queensland, and that we share in the sorrow of each person who lost a loved one to this virus. I’m hopeful for so many being able to get the vaccine.”

https://www.instagram.com/p/CMHXWdFnQp9/

Wilson and Hanks were the first major celebrities to go public with their COVID-19 diagnoses, announcing that they had tested positive on March 11, 2020. They both contracted the virus while in Australia for the production of Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis Presley biopic, in which Hanks plays Presley’s manager, Colonel Tom Parker.

“We felt a bit tired, like we had colds, and some body aches. Rita had some chills that came and went. Slight fevers too. To play things right, as is needed in the world right now, we were tested for the Coronavirus, and were found to be positive,” they said in their original statement.

Both Wilson and Hanks were able to make a full recovery, and have since donated blood for COVID-19 research. In her post, singer-songwriter Wilson also expressed her gratitude for being able to make music during this time.

“I also do not take for granted that creating music stayed a part of my life through @zoom remote and safe recording and writing, even with women from Brazil @claudialeitte and @therajakumari for our new song Hello World. #hellowworldmovement,” Wilson wrote. “Music has been very healing this year. So thankful for that, too.”

Ashley Judd gives health update after shattering her leg in the Congo

Ashley Judd has shared more details on her recovery after a horrific accident in the Congolese Rainforest.

The 52-year-old actress, who shattered her leg in the Democratic Republic of the Congo last month, gave an update via Instagram on Sunday.

“I do not understand why what has happened has happened,” she wrote. “I do understand I have been loved and helped enormously. I understand nights are a savage agony.”

The Divergent star went on to thank her physicians Dr Phil Kregor, Dr. Todd A. Rubin and the Hughton Clinic “for seven hours of intensive, brilliant, inspired surgical work on my bones and nerve.”

“It took stamina, focus, and humility to consult with some experts around the country, whom I also deeply thank (especially SMc),” she added.

Judd also thanked the workers at Skyline Hospital, saying, “I loved the sweet spirit of the janitor who cleaned my room, my bright-spot-of-the-day-gal from nutrition, and always, my consummate and tender nurses.”

“Now, I am in the bosom of a stream of friends and family, too numerous to mention, who have caught me in their prodigious arms from this precipitous fall,” she continued. “They do for me what I cannot do for myself — prepare meals, shampoo my hair, and they also offer the deep spiritual direction and consolation of trying to begin to craft an arc of meaning and purpose. They also offer and meet my need for quiet. I am lost and they are my shepherd’s staff.

“To all who have gone before me and walk beside me with physical therapy, I had no idea. Thank you.”

https://www.instagram.com/p/CLmzTNVh3T-/

Judd’s concluded her post: “I am only at the beginning and the combination of drowning in trauma and addressing the physical body is a lot. Yet you have done it, and so will I.

“Thank you, all here and everywhere, for the goodwill, and may we ever be mindful of the needs of others.”

The update comes a month after the “harrowing” incident that left her leg shattered in four different places.

“The difference between a Congolese person and me is disaster insurance that allowed me, 55 hours after my accident, to get to an operating table in South Africa,” Judd said during an Instagram Live from her hospital bed.
