Hi, it’s another adorable pic of Baby Archie!
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle shared a highlights reel of their 2019 and slipped in a new photo of the baba with his daddy.
He still looks like the perfect mish-mash of both of them, and get this – he’s wearing baby Uggs.
The booteens are in fact the first gift Meghan and Harry received after they announced they were expecting, given during their tour of Australia and New Zealand in 2018. So fricken cute.
Maura Higgins has said that she was “struggling to keep a roof over her head” this time last year.
In a belated New Year’s message, she looked back on the year that sent her skyrocketing to fame, reflecting on how far she’d come.
“To think this time last year I was so unhappy and struggling to keep a roof over my head,” she wrote. “You can achieve anything you put your mind to!”

(Bit late) Wishing everyone a very happy & healthy new year! I honestly can’t put into words how incredible my 2019 has been, to think this time last year I was so unhappy and struggling to keep a roof over my head…you can achieve anything you put your mind too!! a lot of you would have looked at my social media and thought wow “she has an incredible life” to all of the young girls reading this, please remember Instagram is NOT real life! We can all filter, photoshop, edit etc (guilty🙋🏻♀️) but we never know what is actually going on in a person’s life, so for 2020 please remember to be kind❤️I am so incredibly grateful for all of the support I have been given in the last few months…2020 is going to be even bigger 🙊 I love you all🖤

She went on to thank her fans and followers for their support, and hinted at big things to come this year. Fair play Longford gal.
Jessie J has called out a website for ‘lying’ about a heartfelt Instagram post she made after her split from Channing Tatum.
Earlier this week, the singer wrote a long caption about going through hard times, offering advice to others who may be feeling the same way.
“Billions of people around the world are just trying to smile and mean it,” she said. “Are actively working out who they are. Are missing someone they have lost. Are feeling worthless. YOU ARE LOVED.”

Time. Time is the gift. Time is the fear. Time is the magic. Time is the memories. Time is the change. Time is the pain. Time is the healing. Zoom out. Go somewhere where your world feels and looks small. Gain perspective. Lay in the sea. Walk to the top of a mountain. Drive to view point in a park. Look up at the stars. This isn’t to make you feel like your problems or sadness or the feelings you feel are not valid but to know you are NEVER Alone. Billions of people around the world. Are just trying to smile and mean it. Are actively working out who they are. Are missing someone they have lost. Are feeling worthless. YOU ARE LOVED. We are all trying to love and accept the stories in our lives that make us desperately want to fast forward or rewind time. When all we have is the now. The very moment. With the puzzle pieces of life sometimes put together in the wrong places. They can hurt until tended to. Don’t let past or current trauma define who you are. You can walk away from it. Take the time to put those puzzle pieces in the right place. Tend to YOU. Be vulnerable. Be there for YOU. Be there for people around you and lift each other up. Break the cycle. Be open. Talk. Be there for yourself. Recognise the patterns of behaviour you have that can cause some of the hurt. Look inwards. Look outwards. Walk away from parts of yourself and people or situations that trigger parts of you that are unhealthy. Be honest. Sending LOVE to anyone who feels alone. We need you around. You are stronger than you know, and are capable of finding your happy time again. Talk to someone who can give you professional advice. Honour your pain to be heard by the right ears. It’s your TIME, so take your TIME ❤️ 1-800-273-8255 – National Suicide Prevention Lifeline ✨
Some people assumed that she was indirectly referring to her breakup with Channing – and when one publication ran a headline saying Jessie ‘got real about heartbreak’, she was unimpressed.
“The songstress got REAL about her best friend she lost this time last year. Lying isn’t journalism. They taught you that right?” she commented. Oof.
The headline has since been amended, and we’ve all learned another lesson about not reading too much between the lines.
