Downton Abbey 2 hitting theatres in December with the original cast returning

Lord and Lady Grantham request the pleasure of moviegoers’ company at their Yorkshire country estate this Christmas.

Rejoice, Downton Abbey fans, because Focus Features will shoot a sequel to the hit movie, itself a spinoff of the long-running television series. The original principal cast will all once again return for the second film, which began production last week and is set to release on December 22, 2021.

Gareth Neame’s Carnival Films will co-produce the picture. In addition to the original cast, Hugh Dancy (Hannibal), Laura Haddock (Guardians of the Galaxy), Nathalie Baye (Catch Me If You Can) and Dominic West (The Wire) will join the festivities, providing viewers with a heavily romanticised view of the good old English class system along with a healthy dollop of real-estate envy.

Downton creator Julian Fellowes will once again write the film’s screenplay, with Emmy and BAFTA Award winner Neame and Emmy Award-winning Liz Trubridge back to produce alongside him. Simon Curtis (My Week with Marilyn) will direct the sequel.

The initial film followed a royal visit to the Crawley family and Downton staff from the King and Queen of England. It’s unclear if another distinguished personage will visit the estate, sending staff and family into a dither and providing an opportunity for a few well-timed bon mots courtesy of Maggie Smith’s Lady Violet.

Neame, the film’s producer and executive chairman of Carnival Films, said that follow-up was the perfect antidote to a terrible year and change.

“After a very challenging year with so many of us separated from family and friends, it is a huge comfort to think that better times are ahead and that next Christmas we will be reunited with the much-beloved characters of Downton Abbey,” he said.

“There’s no place like home for the holidays, and we can’t imagine a better gift than getting to reunite with Julian, Gareth, and the entire Downton family in 2021 to bring the Crawley’s back home for their fans,” he said.

Lizzo has heard from Chris Evans about her drunken DMs

Lizzo is feeling good as hell after Chris Evans replied to her flirty message.

“Don’t drink and DM,” the “Truth Hurts” singer warned fans on TikTok on Saturday, revealing she had sent the “Avengers” star a drunken message on Instagram after one too many.

In the video, Lizzo lip-syncs to a TikTok audio by Tatayanna Mitchell in front of her one-sided convo with Evans.

According to the screengrab she shared, Lizzo slid into Evans’ inbox at 5:22 p.m., with three simple emojis: a puff of wind, a sports player and a basketball, presumably to convey the idea of shooting your shot.

“Don’t drink and DM, kids…. for legal porpoises this is a joke,” she wrote alongside the TikTok video.

The following day, the 32-year-old singer updated fans with the latest development in the DM saga, letting them know that Evans had indeed responded.

Lizzo previously went public with her feelings for Evans back in 2019, after he re-shared a video of a young girl dancing to Lizzo’s hit song ‘Juice,’ writing, “This kid is cooler than I could ever hope to be.”

She responded at the time with a follow-up tweet, writing to Evans, “Wow marry me” with a shrug face emoji.

How many kids did rapper DMX have and who are they?

When rapper DMX died on April 9, he didn’t just leave behind a legacy of music, he also left behind 15 children.

It was his family and beloved kids who were by his hospital bedside when he passed away one week after suffering a reported heart attack

“We are deeply saddened to announce today that our loved one, DMX, birth name of Earl Simmons, passed away at 50 years old at White Plains Hospital with his family by his side after being placed on life support for the past few days,” read a statement from his family.

“Earl was a warrior who fought till the very end. He loved his family with all of his heart and we cherish the times we spent with him.”

DMX’s memory will indeed live on in his children. The rapper shared four children with his ex-wife, Tashera Simmons, and had 11 kids with other women. He welcomed his youngest child in 2016, a baby boy named Exodus who he shares with fiancée Desiree Lindstrom.

Here’s what we know about some of the rapper’s children.

Xavier Simmons, 28

Xavier is one of the kids DMX shared with his ex-wife Tashera Simmons. The couple were married from 1999 to 2014, and they welcomed Xavier before officially marrying. He is believed to be approximately 28 years old.

The couple also had two other sons and a daughter during their union.

Going by his Instagram page, Xavier appears to be following in his dad’s footsteps. Xavier is a musician who has also recently made a movie — DMX had a few film credits to his name, having starred in Romeo Must Die opposite Jet LI and Exit Wounds alongside Steven Seagal. 

Tacoma Simmons, 21

DMX and Tashera’s second child together was Tacoma, now believed to be 21. 

The youngster started studying at Whittier College in California in 2019 and describes himself as a “musical composer”.

“You are the true definition of if you continue to work hard for whatever you want.. and never give up, you will get it!” the proud mum wrote on Instagram when he was accepted into college.

Sean Simmons, 18

The couple’s third child was another boy, Sean.

At 18 years old, Sean has kept out of the spotlight. His Instagram account is set to private but he has appeared in a few posts shared by his mum, Tashera.

“Today is such a special day for our family! 18 years ago today God blessed me with my 3rd healthy baby boy @s_simmons49 😪,” she wrote on Instagram in June 2020.

“Sean you are one amazing young man. You have been making me proud all your life! Your kindness and good heart has captured my soul!

“Thank you for your selflessness. Thank you for always being about family! Thank you for always wanting to be at the top of your class and in your school work for me and in return benefiting it for yourself! Thank you for always respecting me.”

Praise Mary Ella Simmons, 16

DMX’s only daughter with Tashera is Praise Mary Ella, who just turned 16.

Both the rapper and Tashera have kept her out of the spotlight, with posts about the teenager far and few on their Instagram accounts.

“What an amazing daughter you are, so smart, funny, articulate, caring, observant and full of light and love,” Tashera gushed back in 2019 on Praise’s 14th birthday.

“Me and the boys couldn’t be more grateful for you. I learn so much from you everyday … Mommy loves you more then words can ever express!!!!” Junior, 12

DMX has another daughter, Sonovah Junior, whose mother is also named Sonovah. 

The 12-year-old’s Instagram account is run by her mum and the page features photos of the pre-teen with her famous dad. Just like DMX, she also has musical talents, recently releasing a song titled ‘I Hate Zoom’

“Im walking in your foot steps 🐾 I love you dad,” she wrote on Instagram after his death.

DMX welcomed a daughter named Aaliyah in 2011 — her mother’s identity has not been made public.

When announcing the birth on Instagram, the rapper revealed he named his daughter after singer Aaliyah, a promising RnB star who tragically died in a plane crash in 2001.

One year before her death, she starred in Romeo Must Die opposite DMX and the pair also collaborated on music together.

Exodus is DMX’s 15th and youngest child, who he shared with fiancée Desiree Lindstrom.

When Exodus, now five, was just a toddler, the rapper did time in a federal prison in West Virginia for tax evasion and father and son were separated for one year while he served time. DMX was released in January 2019 and immediately reunited with his son. with Monique Wayne

The rapper found himself in a paternity scandal in 2004 when it was alleged he fathered a child with a woman named Monique Wayne while he was still married to Tashera Simmons. 

DMX denied being the father, but a DNA test later proved he was indeed the dad.

According to the New York Post, he was then ordered to pay Monique US$1.5 million (approx. $1.9 million) in damages after he was accused of defamation and making false statements about her.

Children with Yadira Borrego

DMX also shared two children with ex-girlfriend Yadira Borrego: a son who is 11 years old and a daughter whose age is unknown.

The exes remained friendly and while he was hospitalised following his heart attack in March, Yadira asked her Instagram followers to pray for the rapper. 

“Minor set back for a Major come back ! God got You, Your family got you, The kids got you, I got you !! The World got You!! Let’s go,” Yadira wrote.

“This is great news for New South Wales,” said state premier Glady Berejiklian in the same statement. “It is expected to become the biggest film ever to be made in Australia.”
