  • The NGO states that millions of girls who stopped going to school when schools were closed due to coronavirus will not return to their studies.

Katy Perry debuted her first post-pregnancy look since giving birth to her daughter, Daisy, in August and it did not disappoint.

For “American Idol” last night, the “Daisies” singer returned to her signature standout style in a custom ensemble courtesy of Christian Siriano. The outfit featured a puff-sleeve, peplum top layered over matching satin trousers, all coated in a twist on a cow print; the look was complete with a dramatic train, fingerless gloves and a coordinating wide-brim hat.

As if that all wasn’t bold enough, the finishing touch for the outfit came in the form of pointed-toe stiletto pumps also made in the same cow print.

Katy Perry welcomed her first child with fiancé Orlando Bloom on Aug. 27 after months

The Mindy Project star and creator dropped a bombshell on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Thursday evening, revealing she just gave birth to her second child last month.

“I got something I rarely get these days, which is some good news, which, if you wouldn’t mind sharing with our audience, I think they’d be thrilled to find out. Something extraordinary that nobody knows up until this moment,” Colbert teased during the show.

“Yes! I’m telling it for the first time now. It feels so strange. I gave birth to a baby boy on September 3,” Kaling replied.

A celebrity, a pregnancy loss, and a call for humanity

Dovie Salais

I first heard about Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s pregnancy loss on the radio. When I went to Ms. Teigen’s Twitter page to confirm whether what I’d heard was true, my heart sank. There was a black-and-white photo of her sitting on the edge of the bed, face awash with pain. Then I read the tweet:

“We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before. … 

“We never decide on our babies’ names until the last possible moment after they’re born, just before we leave the hospital. But we, for some reason, had started to call this little guy in my belly Jack. So he will always be Jack to us. Jack worked so hard to be a part of our little family, and he will be, forever.”

The picture was poignant in a way that even

Surprise! Mindy Kaling gave birth to baby no. 2. after a secret pregnancy. The Mindy Project alum confirmed the news in an interview on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Thursday, October 8.

OB/GYN Explains How Placenta Problems Can Lead to Pregnancy Loss Even ‘Without Any Risk Factors’

While placental abruption and placenta previa are “rare,” they can sometimes lead to devastating outcomes.

Following the tragic news that John Legend and Chrissy Teigen had lost their son Jack around halfway through Teigen’s pregnancy after excessive bleeding from her placenta, PEOPLE spoke to Dr. Mary Jane Minkin, a board-certified OB/GYN at Yale University School of Medicine, to discuss how placenta issues can lead to pregnancy loss.

“There are issues that placentas have, like when a placenta stops feeding the baby,” says Dr. Minkin. “What I was assuming is that [Teigen’s case] was most likely a placenta previa, where the placenta basically covers the lower part of the uterus including the cervix, which is the entrance to the uterus, and can cause bleeding.”

“The placenta can sort of pull away from the wall a bit,” she explains. “When that happens, bleeding occurs most of the time.

Stassi Schroeder’s Pregnancy Being Announced Right After Exiting ‘VPR’ Is No Coincidence, Speculates Danny Pellegrino

Dovie Salais

2020 has been a rollercoaster year for Stassi Schroeder. First, she gets fired from Vanderpump Rules for racist remarks and shortly thereafter, she announces her pregnancy. But was the announcement just a ploy for good press? Some fans think so. They think Schroeder hired a crisis management team to help to clean up her mess. They point out that almost immediately after her firing, positive stories like the pregnancy announcement made their rounds on the media circuit, leading to suspicions.

Why was she fired?

In June, Bravo announced that Schroeder, along with her castmate Kristen Doute, would not be back for the next season. Insider claims the pair were fired for racist comments, most recently reporting fellow cast member Faith Stowers, a Black woman, to the police for a crime she wasn’t involved in.

Schroeder was also dropped from her public relations team and

Mindy Kaling’s Second Pregnancy & Baby Boy Spencer Were Kept Secret For a Reason

Dovie Salais

Congratulations, Mindy Kaling! And also, you are amazing at keeping secrets! While Kaling has hardly quieted down her social media presence in recent weeks (and thank goodness), there was quite a bit going on in the Kaling household about which we knew nothing — namely, the Mindy Project star’s second pregnancy, which ended with her welcoming baby boy Spencer early this September. Proud mom of two Kaling finally revealed the news on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and we’re so impressed that the ever-chatty TV star managed not to drop a word of this before Spencer was born. Honestly, that restraint ought to tell us something: that Mindy wants the public opinion far, far away from her pregnancy. So let’s keep it there, k?

Kaling’s son Spencer will be joining her daughter Katherine (nicknamed Kit), now age 2. Colbert had clearly arranged for her to break the pregnancy news
