Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly’s romance is heating up! The two first met on the set of their upcoming movie, Midnight in the Switchgrass, and sparked dating rumors in May 2020 following Megan’s split from Brian Austin Green. Megan and MGK confirmed their relationship a month later when they were spotted holding hands in LA. MGK even gave us a little peek at their romance when he shared a video from their sushi date, writing, “In love.” Since then, they have shared countless sweet moments during date nights and on social media. See some of them ahead.
Meghan Markle made a special appearance during Global Citizen’s VAX Live: The Concert to Reunite the World on Saturday night. Though she couldn’t attend the actual taping of the special like her husband, Prince Harry, the Duchess of Sussex made sure to show her support for the cause by sharing a pretaped video message. In her speech, she echoed Harry’s previous sentiments about communities coming together amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We’ve gathered tonight because the road ahead is getting brighter, but it’s going to take every one of us to find our way forward,” Meghan said. “As campaign chairs of VAX LIVE, my husband and I believe it’s critical that our recovery prioritizes the health, safety and success of everyone, and particularly women who have been disproportionately affected by this pandemic. Women, and especially women of color, have seen a generation of economic gain wiped out. Since the pandemic began, nearly 5.5 million women have lost work in the US, and 47 million more women around the world are expected to slip into extreme poverty.”
Meghan, who is expecting her second child with Harry later this summer, then took a moment to share her hopes for her own daughter’s future amid the COVID-19 pandemic. “My husband and I are thrilled to soon be welcoming a daughter. It’s a feeling of joy we share with millions of other families around the world,” she continued. “When we think of her, we think of all the young women and girls around the globe who must be given the ability and support to lead us forward. Their future leadership depends on the decisions we make and the actions we take now to set them up, and to set all of us up, for a successful, equitable and compassionate tomorrow. We want to make sure that as we recover, we recover stronger; that as we rebuild, we rebuild together.” You can watch her full speech at the 1:36:57 mark above.
Gigi Hadid is celebrating her first Mother’s Day! On Sunday, the model shared a sweet message along with rare photos of her and Zayn Malik’s baby daughter, Khai, to commemorate the occasion. Gigi called Khai her “best friend, purpose muse, greatest pride & joy!” She wrote on Instagram, “I feel so lucky and inspired bein your mama, my Khai !! An old soul full of sunshine, you light up everyone’s days! Thank you ð§¡ thank you ð thank you ð .”
Gigi and Zayn announced Khai’s arrival back in September 2020, after natural home delivery. They’ve kept their family life pretty private since her birth, rarely showing photos and obscuring the baby’s face in most photos. However, the pictures Gigi shared on Mother’s Day give a sweet glimpse into their life on the Hadid family farm. Check them out, ahead.
Dax Shepard’s Mother Day’s message for Kristen Bell is stripped-down and real; emphasis on the stripped-down. On Sunday, the Armchair Expert host celebrated his wife with an Instagram note that warmed our hearts – and revealed Kristen’s backyard yoga attire, or lack thereof. (We see those compression socks, though!)
“Mom’ing has changed since I was a kid . . . and I’m here for it,” Dax captioned a photo of Kristen doing naked stretches at home. “Look at this specimen: kind, patient, nurturing, hilarious, Uber talented, generous, hard AND soft. My girls and I hit the MegaMom Lottery in spectacular fashion. We are so grateful and so in love with you.”
Dax and Kristen have been together for over a decade, and married for seven years. They have two daughters together – Lincoln, 8, and Delta, 6 – and are transparent about the highs and lows of their relationship. “We don’t want anyone to think we met and it’s been easy,” Dax explained in a recent interview. “Because if that’s someone’s expectation of a relationship, and certainly marriage, it’s a bad expectation to have.” A relationship like Dax and Kristen’s requires work, and we love to see them supporting each other every step of the way.
There may be more Japril in our future! Although Jesse Williams announced his departure from Grey’s Anatomy on May 6, his costar Sarah Drew holds out hope for a spinoff show between their two characters. Drew departed from the show in 2018, but during the last episode of Grey’s Anatomy, the on-and-off-again couple, Jackson Avery and April Kepner, reunited, setting fans up for a hopeful future.
During Thursday’s episode, Jackson decides to leave Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital to take over his family’s foundation in Boston with a focus on creating racial equity in medicine. April decides to go with him, along with their daughter, Harriet. During filming, Drew recalled the crew expecting her and Williams to be working on a spinoff when they were spotted together on set. That sparked an idea for her. “It feels like it’s setting up for a really great journey,” she told Us Magazine. “And I was like, ‘I know.’ How amazing and needed is a show about racial justice in the medical field and inequity and equality. How amazing would that be?
“I gotta say, I got so fired up watching the episode last night because Jesse Williams just freaking killed it. His passion for all this stuff shines through in his performance so beautifully and brilliantly,” Drew continued. “But I just kept thinking like, ‘How cool would this couple be? Him working from the position of having money and power to be able to make that change. And she’s working with folks experiencing homelessness and she’s also doing that in her own way.’ These two could change the world of medicine, right? I’d watch that show.”
