Khloe Kardashian gives birth to a girl

Khloe Kardashian is finally a mother after giving birth to a daughter with Cleveland Cavaliers player Tristan Thompson.

The Cavaliers said overnight they have excused Thompson from practice for the birth of his daughter. Kardashian's representatives have not commented on the birth, which was first reported by TMZ.

The birth comes amid a torrent of tabloid speculation about the couple after surveillance video showed the basketball star making out with other women. There has been no comment from either Kardashian or Thompson about the video.

It is Thompson's second child and the first for Kardashian.

The "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star has long talked about her desire to be a mother.

'See you at Mom and Dad's house' - siblings of US congressman appear in attack ad against him

A candidate running in Arizona's congressional election has received some unlikely support - from the siblings of the current Congressman.

Six of Paul Gosar's brothers and sisters appeared in an ad for Democrat David Brill, where they throw all manner of accusations at him.

Grace says he's doing nothing for rural America, while David says he's not working for his district.

"He is not listening to you, and he does not have your best interests at heart," Tim says - before adding: "My name is Tim Gosar".

It's not the first time Gosar's siblings have spoken out against him.

Last year, they signed an open letter to a local paper after comments he made after the Charlottesville rally.

He replied to the ad in a series of tweets.

Jennifer Lawrence hints at future career in politics

Jennifer Lawrence has hinted she's keen to move into politics and is always interested in furthering her knowledge.

The Hunger Games actress admitted it is a subject she is very "passionate" about and she's keen to learn more about the subject.

She said: "I think being outspoken and having a passion for justice is part of my make-up. As I have gotten older, my passion grew into politics."

Asked if it's a career option, she added: "Acting is always going to be my first passion but I'm incredibly passionate about politics. I'm always educating myself."

Jennifer is currently working with Represent.Us, an anti-corruption campaign focusing on stopping political bribery and fixing broken elections and it's a subject she cares deeply about.

She said: "Everything that I care about falls under the wide net of political corruption."

The 28-year-old actress caused a stir in 2014 when she wrote an essay about Hollywood's gender pay gap and she felt it was very important for her to speak up about the issue.

Lawrence detailed what she called a "degrading and humiliating" experience early in her career.

Meghan Markle reveals touching tribute to Prince Harry she had secretly stitched into wedding dress

Meghan Markle's "something blue" at her wedding was a piece of fabric from the dress she wore on her first date with Prince Harry, which she had stitched into her veil.

The Duchess of Sussex used fabric from the dress she wore on her first date with Prince Harry in her wedding veil.

The former Suits actress - who was known as Meghan Markle before she wed the prince in May - had a square of fabric stitched into the stunning 16ft accessory as her "something blue" for good luck on her big day.

In a clip from the upcoming documentary Queen of the World, Meghan could be seen looking at her veil as she said: "Somewhere in here there's a piece of blue fabric that's stitched inside -- it was my something blue.

"It's fabric from the dress that I wore on our first date."

Meghan - who alongside Harry works as an ambassador for the Commonwealth Trust - had the flowers which represent all 53 countries in the Commonwealth stitched into her veil and she admitted it was very "important" for her to do that because of her new role.

She said: "I'm really over the moon to find out that I would make this choice for our day together.

"And I think the other members of the family had a similar reaction and just appreciation for the fact that we understand how important this is for us and the role that we play, and the work that we're going to continue to do within the Commonwealth countries.

"It was good news all around, I think, so I hope people like it as much as I liked helping to create it."

Harry previously admitted he was "incredibly grateful" to have Meghan alongside him in his Commonwealth Trust work.

He said earlier this year: "In my new role, I will work to support The Queen, my father The Prince of Wales, and my brother William, all of whom know that young people are the answer to the challenges of today.

"I am also incredibly grateful that the woman I am about to marry, Meghan, will be joining me in this work, of which she too is hugely excited to take part in."

Cher felt like an 'outsider' when she was growing up

Cher says she has always felt like an outsider and it gives her empathy towards others.

The 72-year-old performer has gone on to find huge success in the music and acting worlds but admitted that the feeling of not belonging has never left her.

Speaking to Australia's Courier Mail's Confidential, she confessed: "I felt like an outsider when I was growing up. I didn't really fit in. I didn't really want to try to fit in.

"You never really forget it, no matter how successful you become. No matter what, you always have empathy and know what it is like to feel different."

Meanwhile, Cher recently admitted she has "never been a huge Cher fan", despite being one of the music industry's best-known talents.

Asked to recall when she started to feel confident as a singer, she confessed: "I never feel confident. Off and on, I've felt good about my singing. But I've never been a huge Cher fan. I like doing it more than hearing it. So except for a couple of albums..."

Asked to name her best Cher album, she told The New York Times newspaper: "It's probably between 'Believe' and a highly underrated album called 'Closer to the Truth'. There's not a bad cut on either one of them.

"I've made millions of albums, and most of them are absolutely no good. But some of them aren't bad."

By contrast, Cher finds acting to be a straightforward challenge and says working in a film studio is easier than performing on a stage.

This week SUNDAY sits down for an exclusive interview with Cher – the singer, movie star, fashion icon and political activist.
