“Their royal highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their third child. The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news.

As with her previous two pregnancies, the duchess is suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum. Her royal highness will no longer carry out her planned engagement at the Hornsey Road children’s centre in London today. The duchess is being cared for at Kensington Palace.”

The announcement comes in the same week the couple’s eldest child, four-year-old Prince George is to start school at Thomas’s Battersea, south London. His sister, Princess Charlotte, is two.

Lil Wayne was reportedly rushed to the hospital in Chicago on Sunday after suffering a seizure, leading to the cancellation of his upcoming show in Las Vegas.

According to TMZ, the Grammy winning rapper was found unconscious in his room at the Westin hotel after suffering a first attack, and then faced a second seizure after being admitted to Northwestern Memorial hospital a short time later.

Wayne’s representatives confirmed to TMZ that he had suffered multiple seizures.

Christian Evangelical Joel Osteen earned an unlikely defender this week in Tyler Perry.

Osteen, who is under fire for not opening his megachurch to Texans affected by Hurricane Harvey, received a large donation from Perry, who donated an overall $1 million to relief efforts.

Perry said that he’s giving $250,000 to Osteen because of the controversy, explaining that he believes Osteen and his wife are “amazing people” and that “there is no way they would lock people out of the church and not let people in for shelter.
