Whitney Port Gets Brutally Honest About Gaining Weight, Her Vagina, & "That Line On Your Belly" In Baby Diary Vid!

We LOVE how honest Whitney Port is being about having a baby! The Hills alum has been keeping a public video diary of her experience since March, and last week's Chapter 26 — entitled "I Love My Baby, But I Wish My Body Didn't Have To Change" is about as real as it gets. Whitney says she [...] We LOVE how honest Whitney Port is being about having a baby! The Hills alum has been keeping a public video diary of her experience since March, and last week's Chapter 26 -- entitled "I Love My Baby, But I Wish My Body Didn't Have To Change" is about as real as it gets. Whitney says she "ended up gaining 40 lbs." over the course of her pregnancy with baby Sonny, something that was tough for someone for whom fitness has been really important. Related: Whitney Reveals The Cute Story Behind Her Son's Name! Though she says she feels "a little superficial" for caring about this stuff, she's just trying to be as honest as possible about her feelings and her fears. Speaking to her husband, Tim Rosenman, who works the camera, she admits: "Gaining the weight was really hard for me. I did not feel good about myself. I didn't want to get dressed; putting together outfits for work or events or whatever I had to do, honestly just everyday stuff, was a stressful thing for me because I just hated how I looked." She adds: "I thought a lot about if you were attracted to me and that was hard because I was never insecure before... Sometimes I'd be so crazy I'd put myself in your position and be like, 'I wonder if Timmy gained 40 pounds and had, like, a huge basketball sticking out of his stomach if I'd still be attracted.' And I don't know!" Whitney says she expected to be one of those moms who immediately bounced back and lost all the weight, but that she has not really been ready to try. Photos: The Hills Cast: Where Are They Now? Apart from being "softer" than she ever wanted to be, Whitney also takes time to talk about, well, her port. She explains: "Having a vaginal delivery changes everything down there, and that's something that's really not discussed, like what it's actually going to do and that there's a really long recovery afterwards. And it's painful and uncomfortable. And along with having to take care of a newborn, you also have, like, a whole other situation to take care of." That sounds so awful! "I had a lot of anxiety about what labor would do to my body. Obviously don't need to go into gory details, but as women I think that's something that we think about. You're pushing (for me) an 8 pound baby out of a little teeny hole. And not to embarrass you, but I was obviously concerned about what that was going to do to our sex life... If it would feel the same, if you would feel the same way about me." Whitney ends the video by asking some questions of moms who watch: "When does that line on your belly go away? Because that's bothering me, that happy trail line... Do your nipples go back to normal? Because that would be nice to know." See the entire vid for yourself (below)!

Most recently, the late singer's '93 hit I Have Nothing was heard by 19 million+ people thanks to one young fan. Specifically, a nine-year-old with Down syndrome, named Dane Miller, has captured the attention of the internet after he was filmed belting out to Houston's chart topper. Video: Saint West Is TALKING!! On Dane's love of music, his aunt Jeanne Miller told ABC News: "He is just very vibrant. He's very high-functioning so if he hears music, it's just something that sticks with him. He's very proud [of the video]...He just smiles and giggles." Awwww. However, it seems Miller fell in love with Whitney's music after he watched a documentary about Bobbi Kristina's mom. Dane's mother, Dana Miller, explained to CBS DWF: "So, he started downloading her songs and that was the one he got stuck on." Same, dude. Same. As for other artists Dane loves, it's said the youngster enjoys listening to Taylor Swift and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. This kid's got serious taste! Miz Miller continued: "When we had Dane, we didn't know that he had Down syndrome, but it wouldn't have mattered. He has been probably the biggest blessing of our lives. He is just so loving and joyful. He is what's good about this world." You can say that again. Be sure to watch Dane's viral video for yourself (below). [Image via Facebook.].....»»

Australian Model Accuses Boyfriend Of Assault While He Is Suing For Extortion!

Warning: Disturbing Imagery Ahead On Wednesday, Australian model Lucy McIntosh posted a shocking photo on social media of her face covered in blood. In the caption, she says boyfriend and nightclub entrepreneur Mark Houston broke her nose and fractured her face. That same day, she says she met with Detective Christina Strollo of the LAPD. Related: [...] Warning: Disturbing Imagery Ahead On Wednesday, Australian model Lucy McIntosh posted a shocking photo on social media of her face covered in blood. In the caption, she says boyfriend and nightclub entrepreneur Mark Houston broke her nose and fractured her face. That same day, she says she met with Detective Christina Strollo of the LAPD. Related: Russell Simmons Steps Down From Business! She wrote on Instagram: Look at my face. My nose is broken and face is fractured. This is the face of someone who was assaulted by a boyfriend. Today I took a deep breath and met with Detective Christina Strollo of the #LAPD to show her the damage caused by a physically and emotionally abusive boyfriend. Mark Houston @houstonhospitality @houston_bros did this to me. I am naming his name. Because we can’t stay silent. Women across the world to continue to rise up. #metooA post shared by Lucy McIntosh (@iamlucymcintosh) on Dec 6, 2017 at 9:20pm PST However, Houston says it's all BS! On the same day she posted the bloody pic, he filed a lawsuit with Los Angeles Superior Court accusing McIntosh of extortion, fraud, defamation, interference with prospective economic advantage, and theft. He is seeking unspecified damages. According to SFV Media, Houston dated the model in 2016 and allowed her to live in his home rent-free because she had previously been in a relationship with an unnamed "successful musician" who was "sexually abusive." In September of this year, McIntosh allegedly sent Houston pics of her "bloodied face" and said he had "done this to her." She also allegedly sent the snaps to others, claiming Houston "sucker-punched" her. It is unclear if this pic is the same one Lucy posted on Wednesday. Allegedly, the model -- who was once in a relationship with Russell Simmons -- demanded via text that Houston give her a substantial amount of money or else she will go to the police. Later, Lucy's attorney allegedly asked Houston for $657,900. Even though Houston reportedly has security footage of Lucy "looking flawless," he apparently agreed to pay $9,000 for surgery. However, according to the suit, she continues to attack him with false assault allegations because he wouldn't fork over the $658K. What a sad situation. [Image via Lucy McIntosh/Instagram.].....»»

While decorating her bedroom and nursery with help from Joss & Main, Whitney Port revealed to People the story behind her son's moniker! ICYMI, The Hills alum and husband Tim Rosenman welcomed their bundle of joy Sonny Sanford on July 27. Related: Whitney Port Still Binge Watches The Hills Apparently, Miz Port's hubby discovered the name from a Paul Simon tune! Whitney shared: "I have to give all the credit to Timmy... He heard it in a Paul Simon song called Obvious Child. There's a lyric in it about a little boy named Sonny... We just have always loved that song. So he was in the car and heard it and came home and told me about it, and I was like, 'Oh my God."' Overall, the reality TV personality thought it would be a really unique name for her boy! "I heard Sunny for a girl, but I don't really know any little boys named Sonny with an 'O'... So it was just the cutest little name, and now he's such a Sonny." Speaking of little girls and boys, does the 32-year-old want to give Sonny a sibling anytime soon? "We'd love Sonny to have a brother or a sister... We want to continue to grow our family, but definitely not anytime soon." Whitney and Tim are taking their sweet time! [Image via Whitney Port/Instagram.].....»»
