The Bachelor is just beginning with its 21st season on ABC.
The magical, journey-ending Final Rose ceremony has already been filmed, however, and customarily, The Bachelor spoilers have already leaked.
Raise your hands if you're surprised ... anyone?! Hello?
No. By this point, The Bachelor spoilers leaking before the season is almost as much of a foregone conclusion as the winners breaking up!
We kid ... mostly. But the show's track record is not great.
Just saying, people. Anyway, back to the lecture at hand:
Nick Viall has finished filming his starring turn as The Bachelor, and we know the outcome well before the final rose is doled out on TV.
After being rejected by Andi Dorfman and Kaitlyn Bristowe on back-to-back The Bachelorette finales, will he finally find love this time?
Oh yes. With Nick in the lead role and doling out the roses, it was finally his time (whether it lasts is another story, but we'll get to that later).
Anyway, ready to meet Nick's final four - and the winner?!
1. Rachel Lindsay from Dallas, Texas.
2. Corinne Olympios of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
3. Raven Gates from Hoxie, Arkansas.
4. Vanessa Grimaldi of Montreal, Canada.
Nick goes on hometown dates with these four on the ninth episode of the season. Thanks to Reality Steve, we know how it plays out from there.
Hometown Elimination: Corinne Olympios.
According to Steve, the Oracle of Bachelor and Bachelorette spoilers, insiders were surprised that Corinne made it as far as she did.
Viewers, however, can't be that shocked, given how Corinne ... endeared herself to Nick from the moment the cameras started rolling.
Let's just say she hasn't been afraid to use her feminine charms, or "golden vagine" if you will, to get where she wants to get this season.
In any case, Olympios earned herself a hometown date, but hers was the one that didn't leads to the Fantasy Suite the following week.
For hypersexual Corinne, who likely had a novel-length list of things she wanted to do to Nick in there, that has to be hard to swallow.
Speaking of Olympios, Steve notes, accurately, that Corinne is 100 percent the "villain," and will be the talk of this season. He's good.
In any case, she's out. And then there were three ...
In Episode 10, the remaining women travel to Finland, where Nick probably gets naked with all three once the cameras stop rolling.
Sorry again, Corinne. So close, yet so far.
We kid ... sort of, about Nick getting his freak on with the ladies he takes on overnight dates. We just know if Liz Sandoz is any indication ...
Check out the gallery above. Enough said.
This is Nick Viall we're talking about, at the end of the day, so it's fairly likely he's not opposed to going there with his final trio of girls. At all.
Which makes it all the more awkward (as if it weren't bad enough even without sex) to send someone home after an intimate evening.
But he does, as there are only two finalists.
Fantasy Suite Elimination: Rachel Lindsay.
Rough. Though for the first time, an African-American contestant made the final four (or three), so that's a celebration of real diversity.
Or for this show, any. Not only that, but as you surely know by this point, ABC has made Rachel Lindsay The Bachelorette this summer.
Not only is she the first African-American lead in 34 seasons of the franchise, Rachel's announcement was historic in a different sense.
Due to the timing of the reveal, viewers know she will not get engaged to Nick ... before viewers know she will not get engaged to Nick.
Rachel's hometown date is still to come, and as The Bachelor spoilers indicate, she will make it past that as Corinne gets the heave-ho.
Why make the announcement at this odd time?
"They want to be able to cast guys specifically for her," says a show insider. "They wanted to have plenty of time to find the perfect guys."
"It was going to get out anyway that Rachel would be the next Bachelorette, so producers figured they might as well announce it now."
That way, they make it "official" to "make sure they get the most and best number of applicants" and hype up her hometown date as well.
Interesting indeed. But back to Nick ... with Lindsay out, the upcoming finale of The Bachelor will pit Raven Gates against Vanessa Grimaldi.
Who will prevail? Well, the rumors were true:
Nick Viall is engaged to Vanessa Grimaldi!
Weeks ago, we heard that much like Ben Higgins picking Lauren Bushnell and JoJo Fletcher taking Jordan Rodgers, this was a sure bet.
Vanessa was his favorite early on, according to the man with all the inside connections, and like Lauren and Jordan, she got the final rose.
Now, of course, we don't know for sure.
Until it plays out on ABC, we can't be 100.00 percent positive that the information above is correct. But we would bet heavily that it is.
While the contestants' romantic futures often fade fast, with a few notable exceptions, The Bachelor spoilers are pretty close to a lock.
So even though Corinne, Rachel and Raven may get more air time, and ABC might pull out a lot of stops to keep you guessing, it's Vanessa.
Now just because Ms. Grimaldi was Nick's pick from the start and walks away the winner doesn't mean there won't be drama, of course.
You can take it to the bank that ABC promos, tabloids and other fan speculation will hint at various alternate outcomes all winter long.
Does Raven actually win in the end? Nick leave both his finalists hanging? Does he get rejected once again in what would be an epic twist?
No, no, no and no to other hypotheticals as well.
Steve is not "worried about being wrong," which is a telling sign. Speaking of signs, they don't look so hot for the winning duo's future.
The word on this street is that Nick has been bitten by the Hollywood bug, wants to be an actor and model, and is set on moving to L.A.
Doesn't exactly bode well if you're Vanessa.
The skeptics out there are no doubt asking how we can be sure they won't last as a couple before we've even seen them as a couple?
We can't. Nothing is set in stone, obviously.
Let's just say that the odds are against it for a variety of reasons, most notably the format in general, but also the leading man's ... history.
Despite all the talk that Nick "earned" the job or takes the process seriously, the trappings of fame and finding love on TV are real obstacles.
We wish them well, don't get us wrong.
But to state the obvious, based on what we know, we aren't holding our collective breath for the LIVE TV WEDDING EVENT of the year.
What about you, Bachelor Nation?
Do you think that Nick will choose Vanessa, as predicted, or will he opt for Raven in an epic twist? What is the "first" we've been promised?
ABC has suggested, via a promo for the finale, that there will be something on that, or the After the Final Rose special, that's unprecedented.
What could it be? And how will it impact that question on everybody's mind, no matter who walks away with the engagement ring Monday:
Do you think it can possibly last?
Hit the comments below and tell us if you believe Nick and Vanessa will indeed get engaged, and assuming they do, if they stand a chance.
Given the show's track record ...
Admit it: you've been had at some point in the past, haven't you?
You thought what you were watching on reality television was 100% real, only to later learn the devastating truth.
We've all been there. And now we can all be here: relive the most shocking reality TV show hoaxes in history below...
1. Dance Moms
We’ll just let Maddie Ziegler, arguably the show's top performer, lay it right out for you, courtesy of an interview with USA Today: "The producers set it up to make us all yell at each other. You know how I said that moms do fight? The moms have a fake fight sometimes. Afterward they just start talking and laugh about it." Host Abby Lee Miller really does suck, however. that's not fake.
2. House Hunters
Bobi Jensen blogged in 2012, on a site titled “Hooked on Houses,” that her experience on House Hunter was totally contrived. Turns out, the couple had selected its home prior to appearing on the show and producers even changed Jensen’s story over why she was moving.
3. Breaking Amish
Can we change the title of this TLC series to "Having Already Broken Amish?" After the very first episode aired, it came out that most participants had already left their Amish family for the bright lights of the big city.
4. Storage Wars
Dave Hester, a prominent presence on A&E’s Storage Wars, left production and sued the network over the phony aspects of the show. He said producers loaded units up with items to give each episode an artificial angle and that they even funneled money to teams to keep each episode's bidding competitive.
5. Ghost Adventures
Ghost Adventures star Aaron Goodwin was fired in 2014 after he stopped by the podcast Are We Alone and explained how the network staged reactions, sound effects and other aspects of the program. He said it was "sickening" that he was part of such a "fraud."
6. The Hills
Lauren Conrad, Brody Jenner and other cast members have come out and said pretty much everything you saw on this MTV reality show as scripted. Shocking, we know!
If the start of the public phase of Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi’s relationship is any indication, they may not be long for this world.
As a couple, that is. They seem to be in fine health.
Obviously, if you saw Nick and Vanessa's After The Final Rose interview after The Bachelor season finale, you cringed all the way through it.
Juan Pablo and Nikki Ferrell aside, it's challenging to think of a more awkward public debut than Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi made.
Since then, Nick has gone on to appear on Dancing With the Stars, and despite William Shatner calling for his ouster, he's kept quiet.
Neither he nor Vanessa have given us much of an indication of the current status of their relationship, but a new interview may be telling.
The newly engaged couple will not be walking down the aisle anytime soon, The Bachelor star said this week when asked by Us Weekly.
“No, no,” Nick said regarding his wedding plans.
“Like Vanessa and I have said, it's too early for us right now," Nick told the magazine (as The Bachelor spoilers predicted long ago).
"We're still just doing a lot of new things together.”
“We're very open about the fact that we have a long way to go, and we're excited about that journey,” Viall acknowledges.
Is that a bad thing, or harbinger of doom?
Absolutely not. Recent Bachelor duos Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell and Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth have gone that route.
Ben and Lauren have done so more publicly, but both pairs are together and working on their relationship despite not rushing marriage.
Why the assumption that Nick and Vanessa can't do the same, and that his lack of interest in wedding plans is somehow a bad sign?
Part of the skepticism comes from the fact that Vanessa and Nick have no home base (Vanessa’s from Montreal and Nick’s from Milwaukee).
He's clearly bitten by the fame bug and wants to act, model and do whatever else professional reality stars do for a living in L.A. now.
It remains to be seen how thrilled Vanessa is with that.
“She's living with me [right now]," said Nick this week.
Alluding to her immigration status, he adds, "we're still working through the visa stuff so she may have to pop back to Montreal at some point."
"While we're in L.A., we're living together,” he said.
The pair recently enjoyed a date night in his hometown of Milwaukee at a basketball game, but have yet to visit her family in Canada.
"Vanessa hasn't been able to do that yet,” Nick said.
“And I haven't had a chance to go to [see her family in Montreal] outside of the show. So I think we're just focused on that right now."
This, more than anything, is a red flag to us.
Bachelor romances are up against it in the best of circumstances, and Nick's motives ... well, they don't seem like the best of circumstances.
Will he do what it takes to be with Vanessa and make her happy, or will his career come first? Or will she accept and support the latter?
Time will tell, Bachelor Nation. Time will tell.
Do you think Nick and Vanessa will actually walk down the aisle at some point? Vote in the poll and hit the comments below ...
Lifetime has found a pretty big name to replace Abby Lee Miller as host of Dance Moms.
As previously announced, by Miller herself, the long-time reality show will look very different on Season 8.
Following an especially tumultuous run of episodes, along with serious turmoil in her personal life, Miller cursed off producers and resigned as host of the series on Monday morning.
But the series had already been picked up for an eighth season and the network has been adamant that it will simply move on without Miller.
According to a follow-up report by Entertainment Tonight, celebrity choreographer Laurieann Gibson was brought in as an emergency replacement at the outset of Season 8 after Miller abruptly left right before filming began.
Gibson will not be the permanent host, however.
This same news outlet has confirmed that Cheryl Burke will take over to close out the final four Season 8 episodes.
Burke, of course is best known for having been a professional Dancing with the Stars contestant for 19 seasons.
She is not competing on the ABC program this spring, however.
Without delving into specifics on Instagram, Miller WENT OFF on Dance Moms and those behind the camera this week.
It was an epic social media rant, one filled with many capital letters to represent her angry mood at the time.
"The majority of children that follow me may be fast asleep, however now is the critical time to make the following statement: I WILL NO LONGER TAKE PART IN DANCE MOMS," Miller wrote.
She went on to sort of explain:
FOR THE PAST SIX YEARS/ SEVEN SEASONS I HAVE ASKED, BEGGED, AND EVEN DEMANDED CREATIVE CREDIT FOR ALL THE IDEAS, AWARD WINNING ROUTINES, THEMES, AND COSTUMING - TO NO AVAIL!
I don't have a problem working with any kid, I love children and have dedicated my life to making other people's children successful!
I JUST HAVE A PROBLEM WITH BEING MANIPULATED, DISRESPECTED, AND USED - DAY IN AND DAY OUT BY MEN WHO NEVER TOOK A DANCE LESSON IN THEIR LIVES AND TREAT WOMEN LIKE DIRT!
It had been previously reported that Miller often clashed with producers over such issues as costumes and budget on the show.
She also has been clashing with the U.S. legal system for years, entering a plea of guilty last year to multiple counts of bankruptcy fraud.
After filing for Chapter 11, Miller admits that she hid assets from the government, most notably a six-figure salary she earned as host of two Lifetime show.
She hasn't exactly expressed much remorse over these illegal actions, though, even joking to ET that she could use a little "vacation" after all she's suffered through.
The reality star doesn't seem like a very nice person.
An ET source tells the site that Miller has been "spiraling” of late and “making decisions that most people would think are not smart."
Quitting a show that paid her a lot of money, just as she's maybe about to go to jail and lose all her income, is likely a good example.
Miller was originally scheduled to be sentenced for her financial crimes on February 24.
However, that hearing has been pushed back, probably until May, according to multiple insiders.
Are you sad to see Miller leave Dance Moms? Do you think Burke is a quality replacement?
Will you be tuning in to Season 8?
Or, in your mind, is Dance Moms simply an Abby Lee Miller vehicle and there's no point in watching if she isn't involved?
Leonardo DiCaprio is here to say goodbye to Darlene Cates.
The veteran actor, who got his huge break on the big screen in 1993 when he played Cates’ son in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, took to Facebook on Tuesday and paid tribute to Cates.
The long-time actress died this week at the age of 69.
"Darlene was the best acting mom I ever had the privilege of working alongside," DiCaprio wrote, adding of the actress:
"Her endearing personality and incredible talent will live on in the memories of those who knew her, and those who loved her work.
"My thoughts and prayers are with her family during this difficult time."
Cates died on Sunday morning in her sleep. Her sister, Sheri Cates Morgan, shared the sad news on social media.
“It is with a bitter-sweet heart that we share that our precious wife, mother, and Gaga, Darlene Guthrie Cates, was called Home, somewhat unexpectedly, peacefully in her sleep Sunday morning, March 26th,” Morgan wrote.
Best known for portraying Johnny Depp and DiCaprio‘s overweight, housebound mother in the memorable film, Cates was discovered by Gilbert Grape author and screenwriter Peter Hedges.
He saw a tape of the actress on a 1985 episode of Sally Jessy Raphael titled “Too Heavy to Leave Their House.”
On the talk show at the time, Cates opened up about her battle with obesity and the pelvic infection that caused her to gain nearly 150 pounds.
Here's a look at her on set with two actors who would go on to become A-Listers in Hollywood:
“I can do moms real well. I don’t have to delve very deep to find Mom in there,” the Texas native told The Dallas Morning News at one point in an interview about her acting.
Only 19 at the time the movie was released, DiCaprio earned his first Oscar nomination for What’s Eating Gilbert Grape.
He later wrote Cates a note in praise of her on-screen ability.
“I’m not really the best in expressing my words in writing but you are the most special person I have ever [met],” he said back in the day, adding:
“I’ll always remember you as the best acting mamma I ever had. You triumphed in your role.”
Following many years of health struggles, Cates lost 250 pounds and tried to get back into acting awhile back.
She went on to appear in such TV shows as Picket Fences in 1994 and Touched by an Angel in 1996 and also had a small role in the 2001 film Wolf Girl.
May she rest in peace.
Flip or Flop star Tarek El Moussa puts on a good front with his public statements, but he is reportedly super jealous of estranged wife.
Or the dude or dudes dating Christina, to be more accurate.
While we're past the point of Tarek joking about raping her - or stories to that effect - there's still bad blood between the HGTV stars.
The house-flipping tandem loves to state publicly that both really happy raising kids and working together, even if they're not married.
Or, in the case of Tarek specifically, that he had been battling some very serious medical ailments years ago that he's never disclosed.
Until now, for unknown reasons.
One can speculate, cynically but not implausibly, that every move they make is designed to distract fans from a less delightful reality.
Such as all those recent indications of Christina El Moussa dating a new man, and Tarek throwing jealous $h!t-fits over it, for example.
Christina and Nate Thompson of the Anaheim Ducks (pictured above) have been an alleged item ever since she went to one of his games.
That was last week.
Granted, attending an NHL game in your own town/county does not mean you're dating a player, and Christina’s rep denies that they are.
However, insiders insist that they are, and that Tarek - who was pissed at Christina dating Gary Anderson before - is move livid now.
“Tarek was mad about Gary because he knew the guy and he felt betrayed,” says a source of Christina's dalliances with the contractor.
"If it turns out to be true," however, "Tarek is even angrier about Nate" for the reverse reason, "because he has no connection to him."
Then there's this hilarious inside scoop:
"This hockey guy is much closer in age to Christina, so it would be something else Tarek would really have to make a major adjustment with."
Tarek, for the record, is 35 years old.
Christina is 33; Nate is ... wait for it:
He's 32 years old! Cougar bait!!!!
Obviously, we have a hard time believing that plays into Tarek’s alleged reaction to the news, but we can see him as a jealous type.
This is, after all, the guy who stormed out of his house packing heat following a blowout fight that preceded the demise of their marriage.
The El Moussas both sought to downplay that incident, but clearly there are tensions between the couple on the verge of boiling over.
Parents of two small children, the El Moussas have pledged to put them first, but this kind of thing threatens their ability to live up to that.
Christina confirmed that her relationship with Gary Anderson - who witnessed the aforementioned Tarek meltdown - was over last month.
“Having a relationship is the farthest thing from my mind right now,” she said, after the split that followed the even-more public split.
“It’s not even on my radar,” she added.
If she’s telling the truth, that would make sense about focusing on work and family, and Tarek wouldn't have anything to worry about.
Right? Or would he get jealous of the mere notion that Christina El Moussa's revenge body might be held against someone else at any point?
Unclear. But she is looking good ...
Chrissy Teigen has a message for Fox News.
And the message goes something like this:
I FRICKIN HATE YOU AND THINK YOU'RE THE LOWEST SCUM ON ALL OF EARTH AND PLEASE NEVER ASSOCIATE MY NAME WITH YOUR NETWORK EVER AGAIN!!!!
We're not really exaggerating.
The outspoken Teigen was one of several celebrities to speak out on social media this week after United Airlines refused to allow two girls in leggings to board a flight.
(Really. This actually happened.)
In response to the viral flap, Teigen jumped on Twitter and wrote the following on Sunday night:
"I have flown united before with literally no pants on. Just a top as a dress. Next time I will wear only jeans and a scarf.'
Classic Chrissy Teigen, right?
She's never shied away from commenting on a scandal or from using social media as a platform for snark and political commentary.
In light of this controversy, Fox News teased its story on the United Airlines decision by tagging Teigen in its own Tweet, as you can see below.
And, as you can also see below, Teigen did not take too kindly being referenced in such a manner:
“@FoxNews I respectfully ask you please don’t ever tag me in anything, ever," she calmly wrote back, adding for a bit more emphasis:
"Words cannot explain how much I detest you.”
We're sorry if you're a Fox News viewer or fan, but come on: that's pretty funny.
While many voiced their support for Teigen, the model was also the butt of quite a few jokes and insults.
Not all Twitter users appreciated her feelings for the popular cable network, with some out there telling Chrissy to “to get a grip” and “keep spreading that #FakeNews."
We somehow doubt Teigen was too bothered by these replies, however.
She already made enemies with a number of Republicans back in December when she taunted Trump about his failure to convince any stars to perform at his inauguration.
"We ALL know you are dying without the approval, dear," she wrote to the President at the time.
Teigen's even more famous half, meanwhile, has also beefed with Trump.
Or at least with a member of the Trump family, calling out Donald Trump Jr. for his dad being an outright racist.
As for how Legend feels about Teigen's response to Fox News?
Is he ashamed? Embarrassed? Does he wish his wife would keep her thoughts to herself sometimes?
And we love this couple!
Teigen and Legend are the parents to a little girl named Luna.
They got married in September of 2013 and never seem to get mentioned among the great Hollywood tandems.
Let's hope that changes, though.
These two are a hoot.
A mother of four named Jennifer Williamson has shared a video on Facebook that was filmed last Sunday at the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.
It has been viewed over 5.7 million times and we wish we could say this was due to its hilarious nature. Quite the opposite.
The viral nature of the clip is due to the very disturbing action depicted, as a TSA agent spends over two minutes closely patting down a child with special needs.
“Let me make something crystal clear. He set off NO alarms,” Williamson wrote of her son, Aaron, who suffers from Sensory Processing Disorder and was traumatized by the experience.
“He physically did not alarm at all during screening, he passed through the detector just fine.”
So the young man passed through the main detector, yet was still pulled aside for an extra screening.
That does happen sometimes.
The detector occasionally picks something up in a specific area of one's clothing and a TSA agent then conducts a quick pat-down to make sure there's nothing to worry about.
But that's not what takes place in the following video.
In the following video, this TSA agent runs his hands over and around Aaron's body, again and again and again.
Williamson went on to say Aaron was detained for “well over an hour,” causing her family to miss its flight and leaving the child confused, even though she requested an alternate screening for her son due to his condition.
“He is still several hours later saying ‘I don’t know what I did. What did I do?’ I am livid,” Williamson shared online.
“I wish I had taped the entire interchange because it was horrifying. We had two DFW police officers that were called and flanking him on each side.
"Somehow these power-tripping TSA agents who are traumatizing children and doing whatever they feel like without any cause, need to be reined in.”
You may judge the incident and draw your own conclusion, but here is what the TSA had to say about the viral footage:
“The video shows a male TSA officer explaining the procedure to the passenger, who fully cooperates."
"Afterward, the TSA officer was instructed by his supervisor, who was observing, to complete the final step of the screening process.
"In total, the pat-down took approximately two minutes, and was observed by the mother and two police officers who were called to mitigate the concerns of the mother.”
What do you think? Watch below and see for yourself.
James Kennedy may have officially earned the title of biggest douche in the history of reality television.
That may sound like a gross exaggeration given the number of Disicks and Situations that have populated out TV screens over the years, but no one has so deftly combined narcissistic bullying with simpering, whiny self-obsession quite like DJ James.
Last night's Vanderpump Rules Season 5 finale was blessedly devoid of James (as much of the latter half of the season has been), but he still sound a way to solidify his claim to the King Douche throne.
The three-part (!!!) Vanderpump reunion show taped earlier this month, and James was on hand to douche-up the proceedings as only he can.
Discussing his relationship with girlfriend Raquel Leviss, Kennedy sang the praises of the aspiring beauty queen, who seems happy to turn a blind eye to his many infidelities and abusive behavior toward the show's female cast members.
“I’ve never been in a happier relationship in my life,” James said when asked about Raquel.
“Happier than when you were with Kristen [Doute]?” host Andy Cohen asked.
James made it clear that there's no comparison between the two relationships:
“Oh my god,” Kennedy retorted.
“That was the most toxic, negative thing ever. But at the end of the day, I don’t want to go into that. I had my reasons.”
That was when number one James-hater confirmed the long-held suspicion about Kennedy:
“You went on the show,” Taylor said, seemingly confirming that Kennedy dated Doute just to land on a spot on one of Bravo's most popular reality series.
It's an accusation that makes James look almost unimaginably smarmy, but amazingly, he was happy to embrace it.
“F**k yeah I did, mate!” Kennedy laughed, reportedly high-fiving Jax in celebration.
To make matters worse, he added:
“To be honest, I was getting on the show regardless because I was either going to move in with [Tom Sandoval] or start banging his ex-girlfriend."
Yes, at this point, we don't think there's any question that James is the Lord Douche Supreme of reality television.
(Not that he doesn't have some stiff competition from elsewhere of basic cable.)
Watch Vanderpump Rules online to relive all of James' douchiest moments.
It may take you a few weeks.
The guy is really just the worst.
Bar Refaeli is not wasting any time in the expansion of her family.
Really. Not any time at all.
The gorgeous model took to Instagram on Tuesday in order to announce she's pregnant with her second child, an exciting piece of news that is also a rather shocking one.
Because Refaeli just gave birth in August!
That's a mere seven months ago!
“Something’s cooking …” Refaeli wrote as a caption to the above mirror selfie, in which her black shirt is rolled up to expose her tiny baby bump.
As of this writing, the image has received over 77,300 Likes.
The veteran beauty welcomed daughter Liv into the world last summer; it was the first baby for her and husband Adi Ezra, a very lucky 41-year-old businessman who exchanged vows with Refaeli in Haifa, Israel in September 2015.
Little Liv was born at Ichilov Hospital in Tel Aviv, Israel, weighing in at 7 pounds at the time.
Prior to becoming a mother for the first time, Refaeli kept fans well apprised of the state of her growing stomach on Instagram.
She stunned fans after five months of pregnancy with how svelte she still looked; and she made it clear later on that she was ready to meet her daughter.
"You can come out now .. I'm ready. And heavy," Refaeli wrote as a caption to a photo 12 days prior to giving birth last year.
She also told Hello! Fashion Monthly in June that she’s always craved a big family, which may explain why she and Leonardo DiCaprio never got married.
The stars dated from 2005 through 2011, but DiCaprio has never wanted children.
"I think this will be a decade of family...I come from a family of four children," Refaeli last summer, adding:
"A lot of mums could read this and think, 'Yeah, try having one first.' Hopefully, I'll have a big family, but I’ll take it one by one."
Well, Bar has tried having one first. And she must have liked it a lot.
Here she is, less than a year later, ready to give it another go!
No word yet on when Refaeli will welcome her second bundle of joy, but basic math makes it very, very likely that we'll meet him or her some time in 2017.
