Seasons Greetings! Pregnant Khloé Kardashian Wishes Fans a Merry Christmas While Showing off Her 23-Week Bump

“Merry Christmas!! May you sparkle and shine this festive season, may all of your wishes and dreams come true. I pray that we all may feel this happiness all year round. God bless you! #BabyBump,” Kardashian captioned the photo of herself from momager Kris Jenner‘s annual Christmas Eve party.

“I’ll be 6 months next week,” she told a fan on Twitter.

PEOPLE first broke the news back in September that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality star and Thompson — who have been dating since September 2016 —  were expecting a baby together.

Multiple sources confirmed in late October that they will welcome a son together in early 2018. Thompson, 26, also has a 1-year-old son named Prince Oliver from a previous relationship with his ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig.

“My greatest dream realized,” Kardashian wrote on Instagram alongside a bump picture in her baby announcement. “We are having a baby! I had been waiting and wondering but God had a plan all along. He knew what He was doing. I simply had to trust in Him and be patient.”

She continued, “I still at times can’t believe that our love created life! Tristan, thank you for loving me the way that you do! Thank you for treating me like a Queen! Thank you for making me feel beautiful at all stages! Tristan, most of all, Thank you for making me a MOMMY!!! You have made this experience even more magical than I could have envisioned! I will never forget how wonderful you’ve been to me during this time! Thank you for making me so happy my love!”

“Thank you to everyone for the love and positive vibes! I know we’ve been keeping this but we wanted to enjoy this between our family and close friends as long as we could privately. To enjoy our first precious moments just us. Thank you all for understanding. I am so thankful, excited, nervous, eager, overjoyed and scared all in one! But it’s the best bundle of feelings I’ve ever felt in my life!”

Kardashian revealed on her website and app that she’ll be celebrating Christmas early with Thompson since the Cleveland Cavaliers will be on the road.

“Then, I’ll fly back to a few days before my family’s annual Christmas Eve party,” she said. “My mom takes full control of Christmas Eve since she’s been throwing the party for so long, so I let her do her thing!”

“On Christmas morning, the whole family is together with the little kids — usually at Kourt‘s — opening presents and chilling in our pajamas,” she continued. “After that, we’re all going to do our own thing the rest of the day. So after I cook breakfast for everyone, I’m doing absolutely nothing and I’m very much looking forward to that, LOL!”

Kardashian tweeted on Dec. 21 that she “can’t wait” to pass on the holiday traditions to her “little one, one day.”

“Khloé is ecstatic about being pregnant,” a source previously told PEOPLE. “She has been fine with being out of the spotlight. It’s like she realized that she needed a break. The baby is a huge blessing in many ways.”

The source also said Kardashian and Thompson have a “great relationship,” and the mom-to-be “couldn’t be happier” with the basketball player.

Kardashian “still has a couple of months to go” in her pregnancy and is planning a baby shower for the new year, according to the source, who added: “She wants to give birth in Los Angeles, so her family can be around.”

13 Reasons Why Villain on Working with Selena Gomez & Why He Supports Series in Showing the ‘Brutal’ Side of Suicide

13 Reasons Why star Justin Prentice understood the responsibility of playing the controversial series’ villain, which is why he did an extensive amount of research to prepare for the role.

“I did a lot of research,” Prentice, 23, tells PEOPLE about playing bad boy Bryce Walker. “I had a psychiatrist and a sexual assault expert on speed dial.”

Since the show hit Netflix on March 31, audiences learned throughout the 13 episodes of the drama series why high school sophomore Hannah Baker, who left behind a collection of cassettes for her fellow classmates to listen to after her death, chose to commit suicide. Bryce, who raped Hannah at a party, is one of the subjects of the graphic tapes.

“Like most people, I think it’s very normal when you hear about a case of rape or sexual assault to immediately be angry at the person doing the rape, which of course I still am. And it’s an important thing. But I think it gave me deeper insight into what’s wrong and why these things are happening — having to force myself to get into the mind of these people and how they’re capable of doing what they do,” Prentice tells PEOPLE about taking on the role of a rapist.

“It’s a lack of education,” he explains. “These people, one, they may have a sense of arrogance in that they can get away with whatever they want to due to the sports or money or power or what have you. But then on top of that, they’re not properly educated on what consent is and what sex should look like and what a healthy relationship should look like.”

In the final episode of the inaugural season, viewers witnessed Hannah commit suicide in the bathtub by slitting her wrists and arms. Though the scene was extremely graphic — and raised the question: does the show glamorize suicide? — Prentice stands behind the creators’ decision to detail how Hannah chose to end her life.

“We wanted people to have these conversations because at the end of the day, they decide to take that first step towards changing things,” says Prentice.

“One of the main points of everyone — and the months and months even before we as actors jumped on board locking down script and plot ideas and how certain things would be covered — one of their major key points was: how do we not glamorize this? So I stand by what they all did,” he adds. “I think they made the right choices.”

“It’s dark and it’s brutal and that’s what suicide often is. And so the writers didn’t want to convey this as an easy thing. They don’t want to make suicide look easy. They felt that if they shied away from showing it, it’s not going to resonate with people, like actually watching her do the act in the bathtub,” Prentice admits. “It is hard to watch, it is very difficult, but suicide’s difficult.”

Of the key people behind the scenes who brought the 2007 young adult novel, written by Jay Asher, to the screen was Selena Gomez, who serves as an executive producer. Though Gomez, 24, didn’t appear on-camera, she worked closely with the cast and crew throughout filming to bring it to life.

“She’s so young, but you forget that when you meet her, because she’s a power player in the industry. She’s this huge superstar,” Prentice says of Gomez. “She was fantastic. She and her mother, Mandy Teefey, were there since the get go and talking to us, phone calls, we would go out to dinner, talk about the characters, flesh things out. She’s a really cool person. Very intelligent and super passionate about this project, which is really cool, because we wouldn’t have it without she and her mother.”

Looking to season 2, which will hit the streaming service next year, Prentice says that justice will be coming for Bryce.

“I know Brian Yorkey talked in an interview that he wants Justice for Bryce, so I’m assuming that means justice is coming for Bryce,” he says of what writer Brian Yorkey has in mind for the continued storyline.

“I’m assuming he’s going to get what’s coming to him, which is great,” he says, and adds, “I think we all want that. I think we’re all on the same page when it comes to Bryce facing consequences for the first time in his life.”

13 Reasons Why season 1 is currently streaming on Netflix, and season 2 is set to hit Netflix in 2018.

Anna Nicole Smith’s Daughter Is Adorable In Annual Kentucky Derby Showing

No matter who snags the crown Saturday, Dannielynn Birkhead and father LarryBirkhead have won for the sweetest dad-and-daughter appearance.

The 10-year-old daughter of the late model Anna Nicole Smith continued her annual tradition of hitting the Kentucky Derby red carpet with her father this weekend. Both were decked out in cream and pink outfits Saturday, with Dannielynn topping her outfit off with a headpiece perfectly suited for the festivities. 

The pair also made an appearance the night before, all dolled up in formal attire for the 29th Barnstable Brown Kentucky Derby Eve gala.

In an interview with the “Today” show last year, Larry explained that he’s not interested in pushing his daughter into the spotlight.

“People call me all the time and say can she be in a movie, can she model?” Birkhead said at the time. “I didn’t care about it, so I’d say no, she’s not interested. She’s just a regular kid.”

Dannielynn has been making the Kentucky Derby rounds with her dad since 2010, when she was 3 years old. Clearly, her love of pink hasn’t changed a bit. And neither has her close bond with her dad.

Men’s Wear Makes Strong Showing at African Fashion Weeks

Mercedes-Benz Cape Town Fashion Week bowed last week, the third fashion week in Africa for the month of July alone. Perhaps indicative of the growing popularity of men’s wear in the African market, MBCTFW opened at its new venue at The Watershed along the V&A Waterfront with a show by Goose Homme Prorsum, a new label from young Cape Town designer Snorley McLarean. Other men’s wear designers who showed strong collections during the three-day event included Ruald Rheeder and Adriaan Kuiters.
According to Sizwe Nzimande, group marketing executive of African Fashion International, which owns MBCTFW, “We always look to provide a platform for up-and-coming designers to enhance and drive their careers in fashion.” Goose Homme Prorsum was, along with XIPIXI, one of the two designers who made their debut in Cape Town.
“I wanted to create a collection that would have people at the edge of their seats, and I think I’ve achieved that,” McLarean said. “I am still in shock that I was asked to be the opening event.”
Using fabric he’d been storing since 2010, including a chain-and-rope scarf print reminiscent of Gucci and Hermès that was tailored into a shirt-and-shorts ensemble, the former architecture student-turned-fashion designer explained that he was
