Duchess Kate, wife of Prince William, smiled and waved as she left hospital on Monday after giving birth to a boy who is now fifth in line to the British throne. She looked surprisingly refreshed. Pretty sure she had a styling team hiding in the hospital, because nobody looks that amazing 7 hours after giving birth...but nonetheless, the baby was born at 6.01 a.m. on Monday, April 23rd and weighed 8 lbs 7oz. William was present for the birth at St Mary’s Hospital in west London where their other two children, George and Charlotte, were also born. “Thrice the worry now,” William told reporters, holding up three fingers as he got into a car to take his wife and newborn son back to Kensington Palace. “We didn’t keep you waiting too long this time.” When asked about a name for the boy, William said: “You’ll find out sooner or later.” Bookmakers have Albert, Arthur, Jack and Fred as the favored names for a boy.

15 month old Rykal Wasson was diagnosed with Pneumonia on Dec 10, 2017 and transported to Madison Children's Hospital on December 13th. He was diagnosed with Pneumococcal HUS. HUS is a rare disease that killed his healthy red blood cells and put him into complete kidney failure. Over Christmas, Rykal was on dialysis 24 hours a day. He was then changed to a dialysis cycler, which he is still on every night. Unfortunately, Rykal is still in complete kidney failure and will need a kidney transplant.
Join us for a benefit to support Rykal and his family during this difficult time!

I don't know if my weight was a factor in being single for so many years, or not, but I believe it's possible. If I'm being brutally honest (here goes), I am not physically attracted to excessively overweight people. So when I was overweight, I would think to myself...why would someone be attracted to me if I'm 80 pounds overweight? I thought about that a lot actually and it makes sense. Let's make something very clear; I have nothing against people who are overweight. What I DO know is that I'm personally not a fan of MY body being overloaded with excess weight because it's not healthy for ME.
“Brittany, you're beautiful on the inside and the outside.” That's what people would tell me all the time. I never believed them about the outside part. I would dress myself to look presentable in the body that I had, but the truth is I was always pretty uncomfortable in my body. I was uncomfortable until I met Kevin. I like to call him “Mr. Awesome” because that's what he is. We were set up on a blind date on October 14, 2015 and we both went into it with very low expectations. At that time, I was about 70 pounds overweight. I had gotten used to being rejected and that's why I stopped putting myself out there. But, this time I gave it a chance. And thank God I did. He saw past the extra weight and saw the true me. He got to know my heart and fell in love with me for who I was. And because we were so happy and in love, we enjoyed a lot of going out to dinner, cocktails, etc. while we were getting to know each other. I put another 10 pounds in the first year of our relationship. That “fat and happy” thing is a real doozy but it's a real thing! I felt comfortable with him and I knew he loved me for me. Yet, I still wasn't happy with myself.
The night of Saturday, January 21, 2017 Kevin proposed to me and made me the happiest woman on Earth! The very next morning, our lives changed in the blink of an eye. I fell 10 feet off of a stage at Wedding World and suffered a brain injury. Being that I lived to tell the tale...wow, was that a wake up call. Being that I was going to the doctor more frequently during my recovery, I was having a lot more conversations with my doctor. One in particular solidified what I had known all along. It was time that I do something about my weight before it would become a real medical issue.
That brings us to the best decision I ever made. Walking in the door at NuYou Weight Loss and More in Onalaska at the end of February 2017! With their guidance and their Weight Loss Programs, I lost 80 pounds and over 80 inches (while only losing 3 pounds of muscle) in just 9 months. All of those years of suffering and being unhappy...and in just 9 months...I got my life back! Their programs work! You follow them and you will get the results. It's simple.
On our wedding day (on our 2 year anniversary of meeting) I felt like the most beautiful bride in my wedding dress. That was something I didn't think I would ever get the chance to experience. Both; being a bride and feeling or looking beautiful in my wedding dress. Hands down the best day of my life, so far. Thank you NuYou! See my results with NuYou Here!

Alexa Cappelli is only 18 and already on her way to becoming a big star! We had a chance to check in with her about her experience so far on NBC's The Voice!
Alexa's bio from The Voice website:
Hometown: Upland, California
Resident: Upland, California
Alexa may only be in high school, but she has already made a huge impact on her community through music. Alexa's younger brother passed away from Hypoplastic left heart syndrome when he was just 32 hours old, and her family created a non-profit organization in his memory to provide essentials for families with seriously ill children. Alexa acts as the entertainment coordinator for the foundation and always incorporates music into the events. She is excited to audition in front of her idol, Kelly Clarkson.

Justin Kilgore's amazing experience on The Voice sadly ended this week when he was eliminated in the Knockouts but he has big plans for the future! We chatted with him about his experience and what's next:
Justin's official bio from NBC's The Voice's Website:
Hometown: Buffalo, Texas
Resident: Austin, Texas
Growing up in a small town, Justin felt the need to suppress his sexuality, and in turn, he didn't feel that he could pursue his love for country music unless he was hiding who he really was. In his sophomore year, he made the difficult yet precedent-setting decision to be the first male cheerleader in his town. Justin came out at 19 and moved to Austin soon after to pursue music full-time, but he was still struggling to chase his true musical passions, which led him to try pop/EDM music. Feeling discouraged, Justin ended up quitting music altogether. But when an opportunity to audition for "The Voice" came up, he could not ignore his love for country music and knew this was his chance to be the artist he was meant to be.
