For several days, the rumors were swirling that Miley and Liam Hemsworth had a low-key wedding in Tennessee just before Christmas.
Miley confirmed the wedding by posting some photos. Miley wore a simple off-the-shoulder white gown and Liam wore a dark suit and tie.
Reportedly, the huge Malibu fires were a big factor in all of this – Miley and Liam grew even closer when their Malibu home burned down, and sources say that the original plan was to have the wedding in Malibu.
Tristan Thompson did not make it to Los Angeles for the Kar-Jenner crew’s holiday festivities, because as a source explains it, he “doesn’t have a lot of flexibility” in his basketball schedule. The Cleveland Cavaliers forward played a game on Dec. 23 and has another today, leaving little opportunity for the couple to spend their daughter’s first Christmas together.
The insider tells E! News that because Khloe spent Thanksgiving with Tristan in Cleveland, she wanted to give baby True an opportunity to experience the magical holiday with her famous relatives.
“Khloe wanted to be in L.A. with her family for Christmas,” the source shares.
Meghan Markle spoke about her pregnancy with a delighted fan on Christmas day, as the royal family stepped out for church services together in Sandringham, England.
“She said, ‘We are excited. We’re nearly there,’” royal fan Karen Anvil told E! News in a report published Wednesday. “I said, ‘Enjoy every moment, being a mother is a wonderful thing.’”
Anvil added that the Duchess of Sussex was “so genuine.”
“She was doing her duty as a royal with the crowds, shaking hands, etc.,” she said. “But when I asked her about the baby, she changed totally. She was glowing and instinctively went for her stomach. It was lovely.”
The Duchess of Sussex joked about naming her child during the couple’s trip to Australia in October, telling a fan in Melbourne, “We’ve been given a long list of names from everyone, we’re going to sit down and have a look at them.”
Arianne Chernock, an associate professor of modern British history at Boston University, speculated over what Harry and Meghan will name their child, considering they will have “a lot more flexibility” than Prince William and Kate Middleton.
“I suspect that Meghan and Harry certainly will include some nod in at least one of the names to the royal family and tradition. But they have more latitude, and I would not be shocked at all if they honor Meghan’s side of the family as well as Harry’s,” Chernock said.
