Happy birthday – and baby, Ciara! The singer turned 31 on Oct. 25 and announced the same day that she and new husband Russell Wilson are expecting their first child.
She posted an adorbs snapchat on Instagram with the caption. "On this special birthday, I received an abundance of love from friends and family. And I'm excited to finally share one of the Greatest Gifts of All that God could give."
This is their first child together. Ciara has a son, Future Zahir Wilburn, with rapper Future. Congrats CiCi!
Jess, Dean and Logan are back.
Everyone stop what you are doing RN. Netflix has released the first real trailer for Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.
This is two minutes and twenty-six seconds of Gilmore Girls bliss, with so-fast-you-may-miss-it pop-culture references from the mother-daughter duo, more junk food than an entire frat house could eat and all of our favourite characters (Sookie! Michel! Taylor!) back on screen.
As with all of the other Gilmore Girls teasers, this trailer leaves us with more questions than answers. We learn that Rory is living in New York or London, but why? Lorelai and Luke are together, but having problems? What's the deal with that mini-pig running around Stars Hollow? And why is Emily wearing a T-shirt????? This is too much.
Grab a giant mug of coffee and sit back and watch. Remember, you only have to get through the next 30 days before the actual show is here.
Also, check out this new art for the show with Emily in boss mode:

Are you using it yet?
We're guessing you've heard of Proactiv? The founders behind the acne treatment line – dermatologists Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields – also happen to be the savvy brains behind another skincare brand, aptly named Rodan + Fields, which zeros in on anti-aging treatment systems. The duo were recently in Toronto to talk about a super secret launch from said skincare brand, and while my lips are sealed on those details (guys, I had to sign a non-disclosure agreement!), I can tell you my takeaway from meeting with them is that I need to start using retinoic acid like, five years ago.
According to Dr. Kathy Fields, who is still a practicing dermatologist and prof at Stanford School of Medicine in San Francisco, it's all about retinoic acid, which has been around for over 30 years.
"Retinoic acid is still the favoured molecule by dermatologists," says Dr. Fields. "It's vitamin A. It makes the pores look smaller because it debrides the pore [for all you word nerds, that means it unplugs the pore]. It helps normalize cell turnover, which is anti-wrinkle. It helps shed dark skin [think brown spots] and a little anti-cancer."
"If you have sun damaged skin, it helps normalize the epidermis," says Fields.
A few things to know about using retinoic acid:
But the number one anti-aging cream of all time, to infinity and beyond? Come on, you should know this by now.
The answer is sunscreen. "If you're not protecting your skin, you're toast," says Fields.

It's good to be Bella Hadid.
Bella Hadid is having a great week. Not only was she one of the first to wear Maria Grazia Chiuri's new creations for Dior just weeks after they walked the runway, she was also basically confirmed to be walking for the Victoria's Secret show in Paris next month.
Word got out when Victoria's Secret staffer Jen Waldman posted a selfie with the model with the caption "One of us made the fashion show cut." The comments blew up, with fans writing "OMG she's in. She's walking!"
The official model lineup isn't out yet, but something tells us this one is a given. Will Bella be joined by sister Gigi and fellow Insta-girl Kendall? Place your bets.
