Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images for City Harvest(LOS ANGELES) — Congratulations go out to singer/actor John Legend and his model wife, Chrissy Teigen, who welcomed their second child — a baby boy.

Teigen tweeted the news late Wednesday night, writing, “Somebody’s herrrrrrre!” followed by a series of baby bottle emojis. Legend retweeted the message on his Twitter page.

Their newborn son joins the couple’s 2-year-old daughter, Luna.

Apparently, the baby, whose name hasn’t been revealed, came a little sooner than expected — Chrissy revealed June as the due date when she appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show back February.

Deadly explosion at California day spa wasn't an accident, officials say

ABC News(ALISO VIEJO, Calif) — The mysterious, deadly explosion that rocked a Southern California day spa on Tuesday doesn’t appear to have been an accident, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office and the FBI said Wednesday.

The powerful explosion in Aliso Viejo, which is about 50 miles south of Los Angeles, left one woman — believed to be the day spa owner — dead and three others injured.

The motive is not clear, officials said Wednesday, adding that no arrests have been made.

The working theory is that the explosion was from a device, the FBI said. Two law enforcement sources briefed on the investigation told ABC News that preliminary indications are that the device was inside a package that was delivered to the business.

The blast sent plumes of white smoke into the air and debris flying into the parking lot.

Witness Dong Shin told ABC News he heard a booming sound and then “felt the ground shake.”

When he saw fire and debris, Shin said, his first thought was a bomb.

Children at a day care facility across the street from the building were evacuated. Some were seen walking outside holding hands, while others were wheeled out in cribs.

No children were hurt, officials said.

“It’s horrible, it’s a tragedy,” Orange County Fire Authority spokesman Tony Bommarito told ABC News. “Anytime you’re near this or you see it, it’s going to affect you.”

The scene has been rendered safe, the city said.

4-year-old cancer patient hits home run with heart

No Comments


Brent Briggeman/US Air Force Academy(DENVER) — Footage of a 4-year-old’s slow jog to home plate during a college baseball game may be the most adorable thing you’ll see.

The video shows Lio Ortega, 4, who is fighting brain cancer, making a dash with the help of his sister Ariadne around the bases while being deterred from running into the dugout.

Lio had been invited to throw out the ceremonial first pitch and hit the first ball prior to a May 12 baseball game in Colorado between the University of New Mexico (UNM) Lobos and the Air Force Academy.

Lio’s father, Manuel Ortega, who played for the UNM Lobos during his years in junior college, said his son became a fan of the team and would wear Lobos gear that the head coach would send him while the boy underwent chemotherapy treatments.

“The hardest thing for us is…how do we maximize his time to give him great experiences?” Ortega of Colorado Springs told ABC News. “This was one of those [experiences] because he loves baseball. He plays on a little league team, he loves the big kids, he loves the college kids. He wants to be one of them.

“He says, ‘I’m going to play with the Lobos.'”

The Air Force and UNM arranged the occasion for Lio and his family. About 100 were in attendance.

“Everybody was crying, everybody was laughing,” Ortega said. “It was just overwhelming. [Lio] had a great time and as you could see, it was a hoot. When he gets to do things like this, it makes him happy because he’s with his family.”
