Teddy Geiger Engaged to Schitt's Creek Star Emily Hampshire

no thumb

Pop the champagne! Singer Teddy Geiger is engaged! Both the 30-year-old and her now-fiancé Emily Hampshire, who stars on Schitt’s Creek, took to social media on Friday to announce their engagement—just 10 weeks after going public with their relationship.

“I love this woman so much she treats me like a lil princess and makes me laugh harder than anyone. I am so f—ing happy to wake up next to her every morning and fall asleep next to her every night and take care of our lil B.B. stumbs together,” Geiger wrote alongside a picture of herself and Hampshire cuddled up in bed. “Which is why… When she asked me if I wanted to spend the rest of our lives together I said… YES … INFINITE YES.”

Geiger also shared a photo of her engagement ring on Instagram, writing: “My mom said I had to post another one of the ring cuz it’s so pretty and she said I made it look ‘trashy’ cuz I had my ‘tongue stickin’ out’ so here is a super classy pic.”

The couple, who first announced their relationship in mid-September, made their first red carpet appearance together that month during the Toronto International Film Festival. This is Geiger’s first relationship since publicly announcing her transition. In October 2017, the “For You I Will” singer came out as transgender, after a fan asked why she looked different. The musician responded to the fan, “Okay… because u asked nicely… I am transitioning.”

In November, Geiger opened up about her relationship with Hampshire to Paper Magazine.

“I started painting my nails and started wearing some women’s clothing, but that whole side of me always caused problems in my intimate relationships. There was a lot of shame attached to it,” she said. “I’d talk to people I was dating about it but still feel ashamed. Generally it would be fine at first, but then as time went on they’d maybe not be as cool with it as they thought they were. Whereas now I’m dating Emily and from the beginning this is who she met.”

Geiger added, “It’s very different when you’re being yourself and your friends know who you are. I’m not carrying this weight around anymore. I’m not ashamed of myself. I’m not angry at myself for being this way. I’m not taking it out on other people, or not feeling like I can be all there with them.”

Pippa Middleton' Baby Boy's Name Has Been Reportedly Revealed!

no thumb

There’s a new royal relative in town: Arthur Michael William! Pippa Middleton, the younger sister of the Duchess of Cambridge, and her husband James Matthews have revealed the name of their baby, according to The Mail on Sunday.

The Mail cited the child’s birth certificate, and we have an idea of how they chose the baby’s three-part moniker. The name Michael likely pays homage to James’ brother Michael Matthews, who passed away at age 22 after climbing Mount Everest in 1999. Michael has another important meaning, as it is the name of Pippa and Kate’s father.

Arthur will be first cousins with royals Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, along with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s future baby. Baby Arthur was born at the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital in London, just like his cousins. He was born just days after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced that they too are expecting a child. Shortly after the Pippa and James announced their pregnancy, Kate Middleton and Prince William released a statement saying that they are “thrilled” for the couple.

Pippa and James tied the knot in May 2017 at St. Mark’s Church in Englefield — and both the couple’s their royal nephew and niece, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, were among the bridal party. According to People, a source close to the couple said that the two are looking forward to “having children and leading a quiet life.”

The couple has yet to share a photo of their newborn, but we can’t wait to see if he shares any resemblance to his cousins.

Kate Upton Just Gave Birth to a Baby Girl!

no thumb

Congratulations are in order for our former Brides cover star, Kate Upton! The model and actress, who was featured on our April/May 2018 issue, recently welcomed a baby girl with her husband, Justin Verlander. She announced the news in a sweet Instagram post on Saturday.

“Genevieve Upton Verlander 💗 11.7.18,” she captioned the photo of her newborn daughter. Verlander also shared the photo to his Instagram account, writing, “Welcome to the world Genevieve Upton Verlander. You stole my ❤️ the first second I met you!!! 11.7.2018.”

Genevieve’s arrival comes only three days after the couple celebrated their first wedding anniversary. The new mom first announced that she was expecting in July, when she shared an Instagram of her growing baby bump.

“#PregnantinMiami @justinverlander,” Upton wrote in a caption next to a photo of herself in a red suit.

Verlander, who is a pitcher for the Houston Astros, re-posted the shot on his own account at the time, adding a sweet message to his wife.

“You’re going to be the most amazing Mom!!” he wrote. “I can’t wait to start this new journey with you! You’re the most thoughtful, loving, caring, and strong woman I’ve ever met! I’m so proud that our little one is going to be raised in this world by a woman like you! I love you so much.”

The two tied the knot last November in a stunning Italian wedding—which they nearly missed thanks to Verlander’s team winning the World Series only a day before! The groom spoke to Maxim in July about the couple’s big day, and had nothing but wonderful things to say about his wife.

“I got to marry my best friend,” the supermodel said. “He’s an amazing man. He’s so supportive and focused and motivated, and he inspires me every day. I’m so very lucky that he’s my husband.”

Sean Lowe Trolling Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s Love Note Is the Best Thing You'll Read Today

GettyImages-1006308594.jpg

Arie Luyendyk Jr. isn’t hiding his feelings for Lauren Burnham, but not everyone is having it. On Thursday, Luyendyk shared a mushy Instagram post, in which the former Bachelor star details his intimate feelings for his bride, alongside a shot from their engagement shoot.

“I can’t sleep… the house is quiet, you’re next to me. I can hear your soft breath and I wonder what you’re dreaming about. I closed my eyes tonight and our future played like a beautiful romance with flashes of our wedding, travels, our children and a house full of friends, family and love,” Arie wrote next to a photo taken by photographer Jennifer Perkins of Griffith Imaging. “I woke up and you were wrapped in my arms, our pups on the floor next to us. Now I lay awake wanting to fast forward our lives but in the same breath push pause and not let these eyes close for too long because this is what true love feels like. Good night xo.”

But as one of the most hated contestants in Bachelor history (debatable, but let us not forget what he did to Becca Kurfin), Arie’s post was quick to catch heat from fans and other members of Bachelor Nation. Sean Lowe, who starred on the Season 17 of the reality show and is now married to Catherine Guidici, had by far the most hilarious response of them all.

“This is bizarre! I wrote something eerily similar to Catherine,” the reality star began his snarky comment. “I can’t sleep- think it was the Mexican food. I can hear your loud snores and I wonder if I should put a pillow over your head. I closed my eyes tonight and flashes of an empty house, no kids, no noise, just me and Netflix played out like a beautiful romance. Now I lay awake wanting to fast forward our lives to the point where I’m not constantly wiping someone’s butt or cleaning up vomit off the couch. This is what marriage feels like. XO”

Kristen Bell on How Dax Shephard Is the 'Right Person'

GettyImages-632022548.jpg

Kristen Bell and Dax Shephard may have had their ups and downs, but the two are in it for life. After five years together, The Good Place star is making it clear that she’s still so in love with her man. Bell opened up to People in its latest issue about her relationship with Shephard and how far the two have come over the past five years.

“When we first got together I had a lot of trust and jealousy issues,” Bell, 38, admits. “Over the years I have realized what a waste of time these emotions are because he has shown nothing but consistent love, and conducts himself in my absence exactly how he does in my presence. I also think he has gotten funnier over the years!”

She added, “At first I was attracted to the way he made me feel, and now I’m attracted to the things I learn from him.”

The couple tied the knot in 2013 in an famously secretive wedding ceremony. They share two daughters together: Lincoln, 5, and Delta, who turns 4 next month. Out of all of the reasons Bell is in love with her husband, she said that watching him assist with their children is one of the sexiest things he does.

“[I’m] decidedly confident I chose the right person,” she says. “He does almost everything in a “manly” way. He can put a pony tail on our 5-year-old’s hair as manly as he can change his break pads in the driveway.”

Idris Elba's Fiancée on Getting Engaged to the “Sexiest Man Alive”

GettyImages-1020913314.jpg

Idris Elba is People’s Sexiest Man Alive 2018, and no one is more excited than his fiancée, Sabrina Dhowre. The model took to Instagram on Tuesday to express her excitement for her fiancé’s big win, sharing a photo of the magazine cover and writing in a caption, “That’s my hubby!!! Yaaaaasssssss 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾 thanks @people but I already knew ☺️ #chocolateforthewin#lovewakinguptohisface.”

Despite Dhowre calling the 46-year-old her “hubby,” the two are reportedly not yet married.

The bride-to-be also shared a photo of her fiancé on her Instagram story, writing on the pic, “hot damn.”

Elba, who popped the question in early February 2018, shared the sweet story behind his proposal in his interview with People. Originally, the actor planned to get down on one knee on Valentine’s Day, but “that was going to be problematic.” Instead, he decided to propose during the screening of the film he directed, Yardie. “It was a little spontaneous, if I’m honest,” he says. “I was at a cast and crew screening and among people I loved. We had all worked so hard for this project so I was like I’m doing it right now, here, today.” He also called the experience “the most nerve-wracking thing for me ever.”He also called the experience “the most nerve-wracking thing for me ever.”

The Luther actor said he was surprised to see how quickly the word spread about his engagement. “Yeah, I didn’t expect it to quite make British news and American news and Japanese news, for that matter,” Elba said. “It was quite a public affair. But it really wasn’t meant to be on the news.”

Elba explained how he knew that Dhowre was “the one” during his interview. The actor said that the two “have good chemistry. She makes me laugh and we share common goals. She makes me happy. She makes me celebrate my successes and when I’m not too sure about stuff, she makes me think.”

And as for wedding planning, Elba already has one major request, per People: “I want about 19 deejays. There have to be, c’mon!”

Did Meghan Markle Vote in the U.S. Midterm Elections?

GettyImages-959883474.jpg

It’s election day in the United States, and while most American citizens who live across the pond can send in an absentee ballot, there’s one expat we’re not sure can cast her vote: the Duchess of Sussex.

While Meghan Markle has long been outspoken about her political beliefs and her support for women’s rights, Cosmo notes that being a royal makes the whole voting process much more complicated.

Even though Meghan holds the title of “Duchess” and lives in Britain, she is still in the process of obtaining British citizenship—which technically still makes her an American citizen eligible to vote in the midterms. The problem is, the royal family doesn’t like to get involved in American politics; According to the Kensington Palace website, Queen Elizabeth “has to remain strictly neutral with respect to political matters,” and is “unable to vote or stand for election.” Because of this, most of her family stays neutral too, in order to keep their impartial political status.

We imagine that this can’t be easy for the Duchess: As Cosmo reports, in 2016, Meghan shared a blog post titled, “Because You Must,” on her now-defunct website, The Tig, which highlighted the crucial step in the democratic process.

“The right to vote is something for which blood, sweat, and tears have been shed; the struggle was endless for us to have this liberty,” wrote Meghan, per Cosmo, who was in Canada filming Suits at the time. “I ticked the boxes on my absentee ballot last week, closing my eyes and thinking of my great grandparents who didn’t have this right (and thinking of how it would have changed the lives of my grandparents if they had). So on this day we urge you to exercise said right. Please vote. The fact that we can makes us the lucky ones.”

But just two years later, the Duchess can’t confirm or deny her voter status. According to People, representatives for Kensington Palace have only responded “no comment” when asked if Meghan cast a ballot.

While we can’t say whether or not Meghan voted, we do know that she is still very much pro-vote. During a stop on her tour with Prince Harry in New Zealand last week, she spoke on behalf of the 125th anniversary of women’s suffrage.

“The achievements of the women of New Zealand who campaigned for their right to vote, and were the first in the world to achieve it, are universally admired,” she said. “In looking forward to this very special occasion, I reflected on the importance of this achievement, but also the larger impact of what this symbolizes.”

The Duchess may never reveal whether or not she took place in the 2018 midterm elections, but if we know Meghan Markle, we can assume she will find a way to make her political voice in America heard.

Jersey Shore Star Deena Cortese Celebrates Her Baby Shower

The Jersey Shore cast is back together again—this time to celebrate Deena Cortese’s pregnancy! Over the weekend, the reality star was joined by four of her cast mates at her baby shower to celebrate her soon-to-be-born baby boy. Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Jenni “JWoww” Farley, Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola, and Angelina Pivarnick were all in attendance for the couple’s big day and shared plenty of shots from the party to social media.

The mom-to-be and her husband, Christopher Buckner, are reportedly planning to name their child after his father. Snooki took to Instagram to share the baby’s nickname, “CJ.”

“DEENER’S baby shower for CJ! Can’t wait to meet another addition to our family. Love these ladies so much!!!!!! #Family #MySisters ❤️❤️,” Snooki wrote on Instagram, captioning a shot of all five ladies. Sammi also shared a shot of the crew, simply writing, “Deena’s Baby Shower ☺️ #Fam.”

The future parents tied the knot in October 2017, six years after they first met. On their fifth anniversary, Buckner popped the question while the two were on vacation. Nearly all of the Jersey Shore cast was in attendance for the couple’s nuptials, including Snooki, the Situation, DJ Pauly DelVecchio, and Vinny Guadagnino.

Cortese shared the baby news in early July, when she announced via Instagram that she was expecting her first child with Buckner. “Chris and I decided to wait until we were ready to spill the beans! 💙Now that we are safely into our second trimester.. us and our little monkey are ready to tell the world Our little family is growing !” Cortese wrote at the time. “We have a sweet little boy on the way! We are truly blessed and our hearts are filled with so much joy and happiness💙 December can’t come soon enough! Daddy and Mommy can’t wait to meet you Christopher John❤️ you are going to be the most spoiled little boy ever!!!!”

Priyanka Chopra's Bachelorette Weekend Looks Absolutely Amazing

Pop the champagne: Priyanka Chopra is celebrating her bachelorette weekend, and it looks absolutely incredible.

A week after celebrating her bridal shower at Tiffany & Co.’s Blue Box Cafe in New York City, the bride-to-be, 36, jetted off with her closest friends and family to enjoy a bachelorette weekend. Yesterday, Chopra shared a shot of herself on Instagram smiling while wearing a white, off-the-shoulder jacket which she captioned, “#BacheloretteVibes.”

“Be good,” Her fiancé, Nick Jonas’s mother Denise commented on the photo.

The Quantico actress has kept the exact location of her bachelorette party a secret, but her shared photos appear to be from Amsterdam.

On Saturday, the bride posted a handful of teaser shots of her bachelorette decorations, which included buckets of champagne and pink and gold balloons. She used the same hashtag to show the images in her Instagram story, before she shared a photo of red fuzzy slippers next to a yellow telephone.

On Sunday, Chopra shared two more shots from the fête: one full-body photo of herself wearing a fuzzy white sweater dress, long jacket and knee-high snakeskin boots; and another posed with a group of women—including Joe Jonas’s finacé, Sophie Turner!

“Setting sail… #bachelorette #Squad” Chopra wrote in her Instagram caption.

Following her bridal shower last week, when she wore a controversial Marchesa dress, the bride said that the iconic jewelry store has always been close to her heart (after all, Jonas popped the question with a $200,000 Tiffany ring!)

“I think we had a conversation about it when we were dating and I’ve always known it had to be Tiffany,” she said during the Tiffany & Co. 2018 Blue Book Collection in New York in October. “Since I was a little girl, it was just something that was stuck in my head and I may have said that and I guess he remembered.”

Fans Think They Know the Sex of Carrie Underwood's Baby

no thumb

Carrie Underwood may be expecting her own “beautiful, wonderful perfect all-American girl.” While the singer has yet to announce the sex of her baby, fans are speculating that she may be expecting a baby girl.

In early August, the singer announced that she and her husband, Mike Fisher, are expecting their second child. The two reportedly already know the sex and have picked out a name but have yet to reveal it to the public.

“Everyone is super hoping for a girl and there’s a lot of speculation that it’s going to be a girl,” an insider told People.

The source added, “They’re wondering if she’ll ‘accidentally’ announce the sex again at the CMA Awards,” which Underwood will cohost with Brad Paisley on November 14 in Nashville. In 2014, the singer revealed onstage that she was expecting a boy. Isaiah Michael is now three and a half.

Country music fans began speculating the sex of her baby when the star announced her pregnancy in an Instagram video, in which she wore a shiny pink jacket and was surrounded by silver balloons that spelled out “BABY.” Shortly after the announcement, the singer was spotted out in a blush Ted Baker dress. (That is an awful lot of pink.)

In October, the mom-to-be made her first red carpet appearance since revealing her pregnancy at the American Music Awards. Underwood revealed at the time that she wasn’t sure how her son would take the news of getting a little sibling. “I’m not sure if he quite realizes how his life is going to change, but right now he’s very sweet,” she said to People.

All the Details You May Have Missed From Jessa Duggar's Wedding

Counting On star Jessa Duggar celebrates her fourth anniversary to husband Ben Seewald Thursday, and we’re here to remind you of all the beautiful shots from the couple’s big day on November 1, 2014.

Four years ago, the couple tied the knot at the First Baptist Church in Bentonville, Arkansas, surrounded by over 1,000 members of the community. Britton Febler, of Photography by Britton, captured the star’s big day in a series of stunning shots.

The bride walked down the aisle in a pale blush gown with a beaded bodice, carrying a bouquet of pink and red flowers. She completed her look with simple jewelry, a veil and a pear-embellished headband.

Her bridal party, which included a handful of her sisters (including Jinger, Jill and Joy-Anna) and close friends, wore hot pink dresses and carried pink and white bouquets.

In addition to the 1,000 person crowd who attended the ceremony, all 18 of the bride’s siblings and their families were there to watch her tie the knot.

Following the ceremony, the newlyweds rode off in a fairytale-worthy horse-drawn carriage.

The couple share two sons together: Spurgeon, who turns 3 on November 5, and Henry, who is almost two. Last year, Jessa penned her husband a sweet letter on their anniversary, which she shared on Instagram alongside a photo of them on their wedding day.

“I thought we’d reached the pinnacle of our love on this day, three years ago… but since then, you’ve taken me from the mountain top up into the clouds! Darling, I love you more today than ever before,” Jessa wrote. “Sure, we worked through our squabbles and disagreements, like anyone else. But because of your meekness and gentleness in the midst of trials, I always come out loving you even more.”

Jersey Shore's Mike Sorrentino Gets Married Today!

Start fist pumping: Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino is getting married! The reality star, best known for his antics on MTV’s Jersey Shore, will tie the knot with his longtime love, Lauren Pesce, on Thursday, November 1.

“Today I marry my best friend , My College Sweetheart, My everything. Together as a team we can accomplish anything. I am so grateful that you are by my side,” Sorrentino wrote in an Instagram caption alongside a shot of the two kissing. “I promise to be my best self everyday & make you proud to call yourself Mrs. Sorrentino. Love you with all my heart. Here’s to our big day.”

Pesce also shared her excitement via social media, posting a video of her and her now-hubby saying, “Wedding time. Baby time.”

“Happy wedding day honeys! Today I marry my best friend and soul mate, without you I wouldn’t be whole. I love you forever Michael Paul ♥️ now it’s baby making time!” Pesce wrote in a caption.

The couple, who were engaged in late April 2018, are celebrating their nuptials before Sorrentino serves eight months in jail for tax evasion. But according to an Us Weekly source, the groom isn’t sweating it.

“He just wants to get his time done, come home and start his life over. The wedding has been a great distraction for him,” the source explained. “He and Lauren are just focusing on getting ready for their wedding. Once it’s done, he really wants to spend as much time as he can with her before she leaves. He’s looking forward to working up until he goes away.”

And it looks like Pesce got ready for her wedding in her own way: The bride recently revealed she underwent plastic surgery, getting a nose job before walking down the aisle.

“I’ve wanted to do this since I was about 15,” Pesce told Page Six. “Once we got engaged in February, I knew it was the best timing for me to get this done before our big day.”

Katie Holmes Sparks Engagement Rumors With Diamond Ring

no thumb

Is she or isn’t she? Katie Holmes is sparking rumors that she might be engaged after stepping out in New Orleans wearing a massive diamond ring on her left hand. And while the bling is very telling, it sounds like the actress, 39, may not be ready for that next step just yet.

Holmes, who is currently filming upcoming movie The Secret, was apparently only wearing the rock for the flick. A rep for Holmes told People the ring is not an engagement ring.

“Katie’s not engaged to anyone besides her fictional movie fiancé, played by Jerry O’Connell,” her rep said.

It’s not surprising that fans were speculating about her relationship status: Holmes has been dating actor Jamie Foxx since August 2013, just one year after her split from Tom Cruise. Though Foxx and Holmes have kept their relationship largely private, the two have been photographed together more and more in the past year.

In May, a source told People that the couple are still cautious about being seen together.

“Everyone knows they are dating, but they still want to keep it private,” the insider said. “After the beach pictures, they only spent time together at home and got extra careful. But this year, they have been more social together. They often go to restaurants for dinner dates, or to hang out with friends.”

In September, Holmes was spotted visiting Foxx in Georgia while he was filming Just Mercy, where they were seen biking and going to the gym together.

The Bachelor's Ashley Iaconetti Says She “Definitely Will Be Crying” When She Reads Her Vows

Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon may have had a rocky start to their relationship, but the two have no doubts that their wedding will be full of love. On Tuesday, The Bachelor bride spoke to People TV’s Chatter, revealing that the big day is going to be super emotional.

“I definitely will be crying through my vows whether I write them or not, but I think the plan right now is that we’re going to write them,” Iaconetti explained, adding that she won’t able to hold back tears during the ceremony.

“I have to read from the paper,” Iaconetti continued. “Who can memorize their own vows and then be up and there and be emotional?”

“I can’t imagine myself being dry-eyed while reading my own vows,” Iaconetti added.

The couple were engaged in June when Haibon popped the question in Mexico during the filming of Bachelor in Paradise. The bride-to-be revealed that though most of their relationship has been publicized on television, the two will not have a televised wedding.

Bachelor never formally asked us if we wanted to get married on the show, but Paradise was probably our only option if we decided to get married on screen,” Iaconetti said. “We decided not to do that just because we wanted to have a bigger wedding. When the show is in charge of it they have a lot of guest requests and you have to also narrow your list down.”

Thank you so much @mubinarattonsey and @anjula_acharia for throwing me such a memorable bridal shower that broke all the rules!” Chopra wrote in an Instagram caption alongside a series of photos—including a goofy pic of her playing around with her desserts—from the party. “My amazing friends and family who made me feel so special and loved, thank you. And to top it off @tiffanyandco 😍 Perfect! Here’s sharing it with you…”

For the lavish affair, the bride-to-be stunned in a Marchesa dress and complemented her look with over $1 million of Tiffany diamond jewelry, according to a press release. The actress’s A-list guests, including Lupita Nyong’o and Kelly Ripa, sipped on cocktails and dishes like Tiffany petit fours shaped like the iconic blue box. Chopra also shared videos to her Instagram story of her guests dancing to Whitney Houston tunes in celebration of the bride-to-be.

Tiffany’s clearly holds a close place in Chopra’s heart: In late July, Jonas popped the question by proposing with a $200,000 Tiffany & Co. engagement ring.

“I’ve always had a romantic fascination with Tiffany since I was a kid,” Chopra told People on Monday night. “It’s just so chic and classy and timeless. So somewhere I’d mentioned it to Nick that I wanted my ring to be a Tiffany ring and I think he remembered, and hence the ring and the relationship with Tiffany. It does play a very special role.”

Following her magical bridal shower, Chopra stayed in the Big Apple to help promote the launch of Bumble India at the Gramercy Park Hotel Rooftop. The actress gave a speech during the evening, and spoke to the women about what they should look for in a partner—hinting at the amazing relationship she has with Nick Jonas.

“Truly this is what worked for me, he has to be someone who respects you,” Chopra said. “By that, I don’t mean makes coffee for you, not that. But someone who respects the hard work you put into your life.”

“Who respects that if his work is important, so is yours,” she continued. “Or if he makes choices that are important to him, so is your opinion. That’s respect, and that’s incredible to have.”

“Then everything is so easy because you give each other credit for your intelligence, you give each other the benefit of the doubt because you trust each other. There’s so much that comes out of that. I think don’t settle for less than that.”

Mindy Kaling Literally Texted Oprah Winfrey While in Labor

When Oprah Winfrey texts you, you reply—even if you’re in labor.

Comedian and new mom Mindy Kaling revealed on Busy Philipps’ talk show, Busy Tonight, that she didn’t let giving birth stop her from exchanging texts with Oprah.

“I’m not, like, Gayle [King] close with Oprah, but I would say we’re friends. I have her phone number,” Kaling, 39, told Philipps during the show. (The two actors bonded while filming A Wrinkle in Time last year.) “I will say, when I was in labor with my baby I got a bunch of texts and the great thing about when you’re in labor is like, ‘Oh, I don’t have to respond to any of these people.’ “

There was one person that Kaling didn’t leave on read, however.

“But she texted me about something about her magazine and I remember, I’m literally in labor, and was like, ‘Oh, of course, anything!’ ” Kaling continued. “I’m laying in Cedars-Sinai…I’m hooked up to the thing…and Oprah asked me something about the magazine and I didn’t even tell her I was in labor because I was like, ‘Anything you want. Of course!’ “

Philipps, 39, commended the actress for how she handled the situation, “That is, by the way, the 100 percent correct response. You handled that perfectly.”

Kaling’s 10-month-old daughter, Katherine, has apparently also become close friends with the iconic talk show host. In June, Kaling told Ellen DeGeneres about her daughter’s priceless reaction to seeing Oprah’s house.

“She’d been really fussy, she’d been fussy the whole way. And I’m like ‘Oh my God, am I going to be the person that brings a screaming baby into Oprah’s cathedral of beauty and art?’ And the minute we went in I was like, ‘Katherine, please. Please. You have no idea how high the stakes are right now,’ ” Kaling recalled at the time. “And we walked into the door and her eyes went wide, and she stopped crying like she knew she was in Oprah’s house. And then she was just like coyly smiling and being adorable for, like, the next four hours.”

“Well, I may have dropped that hint. I think we had a conversation about it when we were dating and I’ve always known it had to be Tiffany,” Chopra told People while attending a Tiffany & Co. event in New York City on in early October. “I just knew it since I was a kid. First, it was Breakfast at Tiffany’s that did it for every girl in the world, and then, of course, Sweet Home Alabama came and put a stamp on it that it has to be Tiffany!”
