Josh and Anna Duggar have found out they are pregnant with their third child, and want to announce the good news to the whole family — through a surprise dinner! Read on for the full ’19 Kids & Counting’ recap.
When Josh and Anna Duggar came back from their vacation to China and Japan, they took a pregnancy test and found out they are expecting their third child! But even though they are celebrating their big surprise, they are waiting to tell the rest of the family the good news.
Instead of just calling up Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar and telling them the amazing news, Anna decides she’s going to throw a huge surprise dinner for the entire family — 19 kids and all! But preparing a meal for 20+ is much more challenging for poor Anna than she thought, especially since she’s pregnant and tired, and has a small kitchen compared to Michelle’s industrial-sized cooking space.
The theme for the dinner is “baby,” although the couple isn’t going to reveal the good news until the very end. So for clues as to what the surprise is, Anna prepared mini burgers, baby carrots and peas, tater tots and pigs in a blanket. Instead of announcing the big surprise at the end of the dinner, Anna wants to present a pumpkin carved into a baby carriage as the big reveal!
Anna Asks Cousin Amy For Help
In order to get the entire meal prepared in time, she enlists the help of cousin Amy, who seems to be getting in the way more than helping. But she finally manages to carve the pumpkin without cutting finger off, and they carefully arrange fruit inside with toothpicks to look like a baby in a baby carriage!
Jill & Jana’s Midwifery Apprenticeship
While Anna is slaving away in her tiny kitchen, Jill and Jana head off to work at the Midwifery, where they are serving as apprentices. Jill is studying anatomy anad physiology, and hopes to deliver babies, maybe even in Latin America with her Spanish knowledge. Jana, on the other hand, wants to be a doula, and enjoys more of the coaching side of pregnancy.
They work at A Mommy’s Butterfly Midwifery, and have several couples that come in every day. The girls say it’s exciting to see the development of babies from early pregnancy until when they are born, and they enjoy geting to know the clients. They also are learning about both prenatal and post-partum care, but are building relationships with couples along the way.
Duggar Family Arrives For Dinner Early
Back at the house, Anna is putting together the finishing touches of the dinner, and is scrambling to make sure everything is done OK. Josh comes home, and is impressed by all of the food and work — especially the pumpkin baby carriage.
But with no warning, the Duggar family all shows up together early! Anna, Josh and Amy are in no way prepared for the guests yet, and lock all of the doors so the kids don’t try to sneak inside. Finally, after waiting for 15 minutes, they are allowed in — and Jim Bob is genuinely impressed by the spread.
Anna and Josh explain that the dinner has a special theme and they should all guess what it is based on the food. After dinner, they each fill out pieces of paper with their educated guess. Most of their speculations were all over the place, considering the food choices were a little random. There were a few odd guesses — they were opening a restaurant, Amy is getting engaged, they were moving, etc.
Anna & Josh Reveal: We’re Expecting Again
After much anticipation, Anna and Amy bring out the fruit baby carriage and announce the good news — Josh and Anna are having another baby! Everyone is excited, and many of the guests even had the right guests!
For their winning door prizes, they were given diapers with chocolate bars inside. Graphic image, but the food looked delicious, at least the way the kids were eating it.
Now, it was time for everyone to guess the gender of the baby, and it was pretty split 50/50! Too bad we already know that secret — Josh and Anna are having a boy!
What do YOU think of Josh and Anna’s big reveal dinner? Do you think it was cute? Let us know in the comments below!

After Lamar was accused of committing fraud using the funds raised by his charity, Cathy’s Kids, Khloe took to her official page to fight back against the accusations! Find out what she said!
On March 28, ESPN accused Khloe Kardashian‘s husband Lamar Odom of using funds from his kid’s cancer charity for unrelated purposes. Cathy’s Kids, named after Lamar’s mother who died of stomach cancer, is a charity aimed at raising money for cancer research and underprivileged children.
Investigators for ESPN’s show Outside the Lines claimed the charity has raised $2.2 million since 2004, but hasn’t spent any of it on anything cancer-related. Instead, the investigators claim that at least 60 percent of the funds have been used to fund elite basketball travel teams, and that Lamar also used the charity’s money to pay his high school coach’s annual salary of $26,000.
Khloe Kardashian Slams Reports Of Charity Fraud
Infuriated by the claims, Khloe defended her husband and his charity on her official website on April 2.
“It is unfortunate that my husband has been the target of an attack on athletes' charities, although he has personally contributed approximately $2.2 million to his foundation, Cathy's Kids, to fulfill its charitable purposes that include helping underprivileged inner-city youth,” Khloe writes.
She adds, “The millions of dollars personally contributed by Lamar constituted more than 90% of the money raised by the foundation. All of the funds donated by Lamar and the other contributions to Cathy's Kids were used for one of the foundation's intended charitable purposes. Not one penny went to help Lamar personally or any member of his family. No charitable funds were misused, and the IRS has repeatedly given Cathy's Kids a clean bill of health, confirming that there were no improprieties.”
Khloe ended by noting, “Cathy's Kids was formed with several purposes in mind, including benefitting underprivileged youth and cancer research. A decision was ultimately made that the charity should focus on one of those purposes — to help enrich the lives of underprivileged inner-city youth. It accomplished that goal. Cathy's Kids helped fund multiple AAU basketball teams providing underprivileged youth with opportunities enriching their lives, providing financial support for coaching and travel to tournaments, helping inner-city youth on a path toward success and leading many participants to go on to college.”

While Zendaya and Jacoby Jones were named prom king and queen, Wynonna Judd and Andy Dick were left in the bottom two on April 2. Plus, Bruno danced the encore dance shirtless with Sean and Peta!
Dancing With the Stars was so much fun on April 2! Jacoby Jones and Zendaya were named king and queen of the prom, while the audience were in hysterics when judge Bruno Tonioli put on a leather jacket to do the encore dance with Sean Lowe and Peta Murgatroyd! Meanwhile, Andy Dick and Wynonna Judd faced the dreaded bottom two…
Bruno Tonioli Does The ‘YMCA’ With Sean Lowe & Peta Murgatroyd
Every week there is an encore dance, and this week the judges chose who got to dance again. After Tom Bergeron‘s joke that the only thing missing from Sean and Peta’s “YMCA” dance on April 2 was Bruno, Bruno joined them as one of the village people. And it was so funny! Len Goodman and Carrie Ann Inaba could not stop laughing at their fellow judge who was missing from his seat — Bruno should become a contestant!
While ‘The Voice’ may be searching for an amazing singer, one judge may have just found his future… daughter?
Yes, you read that right. We’re used to judges pulling every trick they can to get contestants to choose them on The Voice, but on Tuesday, April 2, Blake Shelton basically offered to adopt 17-year-old Savannah Berry.
It was no surprise that Blake, Adam Levine and Shakira all turned their chairs after Savannah took the stage and sang “Safe and Sound.” After all, she has already performed with Sugarland!
After she admitted thatMiranda was one of her musical influences, Adam rolled his eyes, knowing it was all over.
Shakira fought back by saying that Blake and Adam were ”jaded” and “almost deaf.”
While it was absolutely hilarious, Blake used what he knows best — his wife. He took off his wedding ring to show her, and said “I’m actually married to Miranda Lambert.”
He later added that he just recently was having dinner with his wife and JenniferNettles, the lead singer of Sugarland who just had a baby.
“Miranda and I were talking about, maybe we should adopt,” Blake said. “And it’s interesting that now you’re here and it’s almost like your family to me, and you’re 17, a very adoptable age.”
Meanwhile, backstage her dad let Blake know: “you can’t have her!” Adam also chimed in, letting Blake know that “she doesn’t need parenting, she needs coaching!”
Sorry Adam – seems like Blake’s method worked! Savannah is now part of Team Blake!
Usher Finds His ‘Diamond In The Rough’
However, Blake wasn’t the only one to find a talented singer. There were many great performances of the night, and for Usher, he was a big fan of 24-year-old Orlando Dixon.
When Orlando took the stage with Neo‘s “So Sick,” we all knew that Usher just had to turn. Even though he waited until the very last second, it was so great to see Usher finally snag a great R&B artist.
“I grew up listening to you, I admire your work, I just want to learn so much from you,” Orlando told Usher. “You’re just my idol.”
“I’m happy that I hit the buzzer last minute,” Usher responded. “I turned because I really did feel like you had a great tone,” Usher responded. “I’m gonna push you though!”
Usher later told the cameras that he thinks Orlando is “a diamond in the rough.”

The Chris Brown/Drake feud continues! It’s pretty clear these two hate each other, and they aren’t shy about it. In a new interview, Chris openly admits that he doesn’t like the rapper! Watch the video!
From bar fights to song disses, Chris Brown, 23, and Drake, 26, have had their fair share of beef, and it doesn’t look like their feuding will end anytime soon! While on the road promoting his new album X, Chris made sure to let his strong feelings about Drake be known during an interview with Power 105.1 radio station.
When the “Fine China” singer was asked about his opinion on Drake, Chris replied, “People just don’t like certain people. He don’t like me. I don’t like him.” Well at least they can agree on something!
Drake Disses Chris Brown In New Song
Chris isn’t the only one making digs! In Drake’s new song “5AM in Toronto,” the rapper blatantly slams Chris in the lyrics!
"A couple albums dropped, those are still on the shelf/I bet them s**ts would have popped if I was willin' to help," He raps, referring to Chris’ low album sales. The rappers implies that Chris’ album would have sold much more if he had collaborated with Chris on it.
In the song, Drake also accuses Chris of being too caught up in the media. He says, "A lot of n***as PR stuntin' like that's the movement/And I'm the only n***a still known for the music."

“We’re really friendly,” Nick told E!. “We’ve got a good relationship. I’m happy for her and Liam.” Aww! We think it’s so great that Nick wants the best for Miley!
Nick Jonas Jokes To Avoid Miley Cyrus Lunch Date Question
When Nick was asked about the recent rumors that he met up with Miley for lunch, he dodged the question by making a joke.
“I think that it’s one of those things that it’s like, there are a lot of people that look like me I guess in that particular town. Maybe they’re running around meeting with Miley,” Nick joked.
Although Miley denies the lunch date ever happened, an eyewitness insists it’s true. As we previously reported, an eyewitness tells HollywoodLife.com, "[There was] absolutely no romantic vibe at all, at any time while they ate and while they were there. It seemed more like a meeting than a friendly chit chat or get together — it was a more serious tone, based on their demeanor. They seemed to be having a business meeting — they were on their phones and then they left without incident."
Twitter users also claim they saw Miley and Nick together. @SamyThor wrote, "Miley cyrus was at paty's with nick Jonas like 10 mins ago. So cool."

In light of the death of Shain Gandee, I think it only makes good sense to cancel the ‘Buckwild’ series. Anybody who’s watched the show knows that every week, the cast performs reckless stunts including making potato shotguns, racing through mud in ATV vehicles, rolling down hills in large tires, jumping off bridges, and so much more.
They pride themselves on doing wild and crazy things that are dangerous. In the trailer, Buckwildstar Ashley Whitt was quoted, “That’s nuts — we shouldn’t be doing this.”
The whole show’s premise is based upon showcasing dangerous behavior by young people and saying that it’s fun. It’s like Jackass, but with amateurs. And the allure of doing this in front of cameras probably only makes them take more risks.
Clearly, it provided encouragement for ShainGandee to take risks in his off camera life. By doing it in front of the camera, he was being given a green light to take risks — to indulge in risky and potentially dangerous behavior.
The Young Cast Members Are Vulnerable To Make Irrational Decisions
The entire show is based around being crazy and wild. It’s one thing to have people who are trained stunt people performing what looks like dangerous stunts, but it’s another thing to have regular young adults performing such acts.
A study done by the University of Rochester Medical Center shows that the rational part of the brain isn’t fully developed until the age of 25, so people this age think they’re invincible. Sometimes, young adults have a hard time making good judgement calls. But Buckwild is all about making bad judgement calls.
MTV Needs To Cancel ‘Buckwild’ After Shain’s Death
Out of respect for Shain’s family, MTV should cancel the series. Do they really want to air footage they’ve already filmed of Shain? It will certainly be painful for his family to see that. Also, for them to see Shain’s friends engaging in equally reckless behavior in the future.
We think it’s important that Shain’s parents have a say in the future of the show, and the cast members should be able to decide whether they want to continue. Shain’s death likely put an enormous damper on the whole experience.

Despite loving and being in a committed relationship with Rihanna, Chris says he still loves his ex Karrueche Tran. Plus, he doesn’t want her dating any musicians in the future. Read on for all the details!
Chris Brown still has “love” for ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran and he wants her to be successful in every way! However, there’s one thing that Chris doesn’t want Karrueche doing and that’s dating another rapper. Is that fair?
In an interview with The Breakfast Club Power 105.1 on April 2, Chris, 23, opened up about his feelings for Karrueche and admitted it would be weird if she were to date another musician.
Chris Brown: Karrueche Tran Dating Another Rapper?
“Yeah, that would be a little close to home,” Chris says. “At the end of the day I think it should be a respect boundary,” adding that he wouldn’t want Karrueche to “s**t in my backyard.”
Chris says Karrueche was there for him through one of the darkest periods of his life and says for that, he will always admire her.
Chris Brown Still Loves Karrueche
“She was my friend through it all,” Chris reveals. “It was a friendship more than a relationship. I still love her, but at the end of the day, it’s like I got love for her. She gone always be my homie!”
He goes on, saying he wishes “all the best to her. We still have a clothing line. I only want her to progress. I don’t want to stop her blessings.”
Sound off, HollywoodLifers. Do you think Chris is maturing fast by realizing his mistakes at a young age?
After being away for 64 days in Australia, where he was busy filming ‘The Rover,’ Rob is now making up for lost time with all of his friends, a source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. Read on for all the details on Rob’s recent boys’ night out!
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart seem to have the perfect relationship — they know how important it is to give each other some space. Even though they have been inseparable for the last few weeks, Rob caught up with his buddies for some beer and bowling. Sounds fun!
On March 30, Rob enjoyed a boys’ night out in Hollywood at the Roosevelt Hotel, where they spent time at the hip hotel’s Spare Room and ritzy bar Teddy’s.
An eyewitness reveals to HolyywoodLife.com exclusively, “It was all about beer, buddies and bowling! While in The Spare Room, Rob and his gang of friends kept throwing back the beers and having a real fun time laughing. They even played Jenga & Connect 4 as the bar has the games on the tables.”
“Teddy’s is more exclusive and he sat in the corner, and with the room the way it is, you would really have to know he was there to see him,” explains the source. “People did notice him but for the most part he was roped off so he wasn’t bugged. Overall it looked like he was having fun.”
And even though there were plenty of sexy girls around, our insider says, “He didn’t talk to any girls!”
Rob is so committed to Kristen!
Robert Pattinson’s & Kristen Stewart’s Intimate Easter Together
"Rob and Kristen celebrated Easter together at her mom's house in Malibu. It was low-key and Kristen's brothers were there as well," the insider told us exclusively.
“During the day, Rob took the paddle board out. There is a private beach where Jules lives and that’s where Rob always goes paddle boarding. It’s very secluded and private. As far as I know, all is perfect in Rob and Kristen’s world. They are really happy to be back together,” added the source.
Kristen Stewart Trusts Robert Pattinson
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Is Kristen playing it smart by not being clingy and giving Rob space to hang out with his buddies?
‘Teen Mom 2′ star Jenelle was taken to hospital in an ambulance on the afternoon of April 2 with a suspected burst cyst. How scary!
Jenelle Evans has been rushed to hospital, and her terrified husband Courtland Rogers has revealed that he is “scared” for his wife, who is bleeding. Read on for all the frightening details.
Jenelle Evans Hospitalized With Suspected Burst Cyst
Jenelle, 21, was taken to a hospital on April 2 with a suspected burst cyst, and her husband Courtland spoke out about his concern for her.
"I love Jenelle and I'm really scared for her," Courtland told Radar Online.
"Her mom told us to get her to the hospital as fast as possible, that's why we called the ambulance. Jenelle's scared and so am I."
Jenelle has cysts on her ovaries that have a history of rupturing and Courtland thinks that's again happened because she's bleeding.
"She's going to be fine," Courtland said. "I love my wife."
We hope Jenelle makes a speedy recovery! This must be terrifying for her.
It is so great that Courtland is so concerned and worried about Jenelle, because they have been through a lot in the last few months. However, they are now working things out.
"I spent [St. Patrick's Day] just relaxing at my house with my husband. We are still trying to work things out. As long as he has the right intentions for his future, then I think we will be alright," Jenelle posted to her Sulia page on March 17.
What do YOU think HollywoodLifers? Are you worried for Jenelle?
‘Real Housewives Of New Jersey’ Season 5 Premiere Date
The series will return on Sunday, June 5, at 8 PM ET!
Contrary to recent reports, there are no new housewives officially joining the cast. But we’re sure that friends of the housewives will be making regular appearances. We’re hoping that we’ll get a cameo or two by Danielle Staub!
Bravo released a statement saying:
“Season 5 welcomes back the entire cast as Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Jacqueline Laurita, Caroline Manzo, and Kathy Wakile pick up right where last season's contentious reunion left off. This season they are on a mission for redemption, scrambling to pick up the pieces of their fractured relationships. The women also find themselves shifting through rubble after Hurricane Sandy leaves much of the Jersey Shore in ruins, including some of their homes. A sense of communal rebuilding encourages Teresa to rise above the past drama with her brother and sister-in-law, Melissa, and mend her family for good. Jacqueline struggles to cope with her son’s autism diagnosis while tensions from her fallout with Teresa push her towards her breaking point. As Caroline fights to shed her reputation as a bully and Melissa strives to break free from the weight of her husband Joe’s family drama, Kathy attempts to step out of her husband's shadow to find her own voice and launch her career.”

WATCH: ’RHONJ’ Melissa Gorga Talks ALL About Explosive Season 4 Finale
It looks like the star is reviving her modeling career in a very interesting campaign for the fashion brand — and she wasn’t the only surprising face to sign on! See who else was chosen for the Saint Laurent ‘Music Project’ right here.
48-year-old Courtney Love was announced as the face of the most recent St. Laurent campaign along with some other household names that may be considered somewhat untraditional for the fashion house. Love will be joined by Kim Gordon, 59, Ariel Pink, 34, and Marilyn Manson, 44, to debut the punk-themed attire in the Saint Laurent Music Project.
Saint Laurent Music Project:
Designer Hedi Slimane, 44, previously featured Beck and Sky Ferreira as campaign faces, making it evident that he is inspired by the rocker theme. While he’s been consistent with his choice of musicians to uphold that look, he definitely took it a step further by letting his models style themselves to capture the utmost authenticity…and they really went wild with that freedom. They accessorized the designer pieces with crowns, fur and instruments!
The campaign features some outlandish shots of the stars, who each have their own edgy reputation. For example, Love can be seen donning a pinstriped suit and silk ruffle shirt while letting loose on her guitar. Eccentric looks, (like this one), are mixed in with a slew of biker ensembles that only a true rockstar could pull off!
Courtney Love’s Saint Laurent Campaign:
While Love was clearly a perfect fit for the look Slimane is going for, he has already grown accustomed to shooting the star prior to this campaign. He also has worked on a number of shoots with Love’s daughter, Frances Bean Cobain.
HollywoodLife.com has spoken to a source who tells us that Kris believes he’ll be able to prove that Kim knew their 72-day-marriage wouldn’t last. Read on for Kris’ proof that Kim staged episodes on ‘KKTNY’ to make him look badly!
Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphrieswill head to trial on May 6 to battle out their divorce. It’ll be there that Kris will reveal evidence that Kim staged her marriage to Kris for the sake of reality TV ratings. HollywoodLife.com has spoken to a source very close to the situation who tells us that Kris has a big case built against Kim.
Kris Has Proof That Kim Never Loved Him
The insider tells us Kim worked with producers on Kourtney & Kim Take New York in 2012 to make it look as though Kris was a bad husband, by having scenes filmed and edited in a certain way.
“A person who is truly in love would never have staged scenes of KKTNY like that without her husband’s knowledge.”
One example that was actually brought up during Kim’s divorce deposition, is that the party Kris threw at the Gansevoort Park hotel, where they were living during September of 2012, was totally fake. But viewers thought that Kim had no idea, because she was out of town with her sisters! It turns out that Kim was actually upstairs at the hotel during the party!
“He said ‘I want to have friends over’ and she said ‘no, not when I’m not there.’” the source said. “Production knew that she was in the hotel and he was supposed to have a party. Production had liquor sent over, set up for the girls to come over.”
The insider even went on to say that the production created fake Twitter accounts for the girls who came to the room and pretended to be groupies. On Twitter the girls posted pics of themselves in Kim’s bathroom and in Kris’ closet.
“Kim set him up to look bad in the press,” the source says. “Kris was unaware of what was going on until after the divorce. Kim premeditating scenes with producers … anyone who loves their husband wouldn’t premeditate scenes like this.”
Kim Will Use Tears & Her Pregnancy To Win In Court
When Kim and Kris go head-to-head, the insider tells us that Kim will do anything she can to illicit sympathy from the judge.
“Friends and family are expecting Kim to use tears and her pregnancy as a sympathy card,” the source says. “We can expect her to say that she loved him when she married him, she’ll try to tug at everyone’s heartstrings.”
The source even adds: “She’ll have people ask Kris why he’s putting her through this while she’s pregnant.”
How Kris Is Doing & What We Can Expect In Court From Him
Is Kris angry and losing sleep over the upcoming court date?
“He’s very calm,” the source tells us. “He’s in a normal space, he’s not stressed out. He has a strong, good case.”
