In Honor of the Latest Masked Singer Reveal, Let’s Rewatch a Clip From Scooby Doo

in-honor-of-the-latest-masked-singer-reveal,-let’s-rewatch-a-clip-from-scooby-doo

“Law & Order” & More TV Shows We’re Excited for in 2021

Sometimes, no matter what a person has done or what they are best known for, your brain only works one way. 

That’s the case with Sugar Ray frontman Mark McGrath and us, here at E! News. You say Mark McGrath, we say Scooby Doo (2002). You say “Mark McGrath was unmasked as the Orca on The Masked Singer,” we say, “Mark McGrath was possessed by a demon in Scooby Doo.” We are sorry but we don’t know how to fix it, so we’re just going to embrace it. 

Back in 2002, we were blessed beyond measure by the film Scooby Doo, which turned everyone’s favorite mystery-solving dog into an adorable CGI nightmare surrounded by an incredible cast of stars. Sarah Michelle Gellar (whose birthday happens to be today, April 14) played Daphne, with her husband Freddie Prinze Jr. as Fred. Linda Cardellini played Velma, with Matthew Lillard as Shaggy. Isla Fisher and Rowan Atkinson also starred, and the movie took the gang on vacation to a mysterious party-filled island. 

Things went real south real fast as everyone on the island got possessed by a demon, and at one point the gang all switched bodies for a while. But the scene we’re specifically thinking of involves Mark McGrath and the rest of Sugar Ray performing “Words to Me” while Daphne, Shaggy and Scooby search for Fred and Velma. 

Warner Bros.

As it turns out, McGrath and the band have been possessed by the same kind of demon that has taken over most of the other partiers, and now they’ve got their eye on a few famous mystery-solvers who need to be taken care of. In case you haven’t seen this incredible film, we won’t spoil who’s behind it all at the end. But it sure is a twist!

Anyway, you can watch the clip right here. Please enjoy the immaculate 2002 vibes! We really appreciate you going on this journey with us, and we wish McGrath well on his post-Masked Singer adventures. 

He leaves behind four members of Group A who are heading into the Super Eight: Robopine, Seashell, the Russian Dolls and the new Wildcard, the Yeti. Yeti says he resisted turning into a monster by being surrounded by a bunch of warrior women, and he’s got some moves in spite of his massive costume. We’ll have to wait to find out who he is, however, because he unseated the Orca and stole his spot in the next round. 

We’ll see the Super Eight compete in a two-hour episode next Wednesday at 8 p.m. on Fox. For now, scroll down to keep up with all the contestants.

Orca: Mark McGrath

The Orca joined as a Wildcard in week three and quickly proved his rockstar chops. He revealed he has 10-year-old twins and was performing for his dad, and he was eventually revealed to be Sugar Ray frontman Mark McGrath.

Fox

Bulldog: Nick Cannon

Never has a Masked Singer reveal annoyed us so. They spent a whole episode making us think we were going to get a regular unmasking, and then Niecy Nash hijacked the vote to unmask…the regular host of the show, Nick Cannon. How very irritating!

Grandpa Monster: Logan Paul

Whoever Grandpa Monster is, he’s got a past he’s trying to shake and he hates looking back on his younger days because he’s done so much growing. Alarmingly, the two prevailing guesses online are Logan Paul and O.J. Simpson. The voice sounds way more like the latter. 

The panel guessed Scott Disick, Johnny Manziel and the Miz

Raccoon: Danny Trejo

Once you know the Raccoon is Danny Trejo, you can’t unhear it. There was also a donut in his first clue package, which should have been a dead giveaway for the actor-turned-donut seller.

Phoenix: Caitlyn Jenner

Few masked singers have been quite as obvious as the Phoenix, who simply could not escape from Caitlyn Jenner‘s voice and mannerisms. She’s been on TV too long to stay a mystery for very long at all.

Snail: Kermit the Frog

We are still shook by this, TBH. The first unmasked singer of season five turned out to be Kermit the Frog, who is a muppet. Sure, he’s a prolific star of movies and TV shows, but he is also still a puppet. Baffling! 

Fox

Russian Dolls

The Russian Dolls are baffling. At first there appeared to be on, then a second appeared, and now there are three! They sound exactly like Hanson, and if they’re not Hanson, we will eat a shoe. (No we won’t.) 

Panel guesses have included Lady Antebellum, Boyz II Men, Vanessa Hudgens, Darren Criss, Matthew Morrison and Kevin McHale

Fox

Robopine

According to his clues, the Robopine got a call from an angel that changed his life, and now he’s on a new mission that no one can touch. He claimed to be 60, but none of the panelists believed him. He’s clearly got a voice and some major talent, and if we’re agreed that he’s lying about his age, Tyrese Gibson could be a solid choice. MC Hammer is actually in his late 50s and would also make sense. 

Guesses included Ginuwine, Jamie Foxx and Lionel Richie

Fox

Seashell

Seashell moved around with her family for most of her childhood, and has worn a lot of hats. If you ask the internet, it’s Tamera Mowry and it’s hard to disagree. 

Panel guesses included Hilary Duff, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Jessica Simpson. Ken Jeong tried to guess Kristen Chenoweth and was praised by the rest of the panel, but she has one of the most recognizable voices in showbiz so we’re not sure where he was going with that. 

Fox

Black Swan

Black Swan is clearly a fantastic singer who says she got caught up under a spell and hypnotized by a Hollywood deal she couldn’t resist. She sounds like a grown up JoJo, who struggled under her original record deal for years before finally breaking free of it. 

The panelists, who have often guessed JoJo in the past, went with Anya Taylor Joy and Camila Cabello. 

Fox

Chameleon

The Chameleon is clearly a tall man and there were references to a “pit” and 007, which makes perfect sense for Wiz Khalifa. He’s 6’4″ and he’s from Pittsburgh. He also has a thing for pitbulls, and has a song called “James Bong.” 

Guesses included Redfoo, Diplo and even Nick Cannon, which would admittedly be a great trick. 

Fox

Piglet

Despite a clue package filled with Bachelor references, the Piglet seems much more likely to be a boy bander. He sounds an awful lot like Nick Lachey, and his clues revealed that the world has seen his heart break, which we all did after the demise of his TV show with ex-wife Jessica Simpson. If it is actually someone from The Bachelor, then we’ve got to know who’s been hiding that talent from us! 

Panelists guessed Adam Lambert, Liam Hemsworth and Charlie Puth, but none of those feel quite right.

Celebrity Mothers Who Welcomed Rainbow Babies After Pregnancy Loss

Carrie Underwood Reveals She Had 3 Miscarriages in Past 2 Years

After the storm, there can be a rainbow.

Millions of women around the world have waged secret, silent and lengthy battles with infertility. Many have suffered IVF failures, miscarriages or other forms of pregnancy loss. Some of them, including celebrities such as Carrie Underwood, Beyoncé, Céline Dion, Nicole KidmanMichelle Obama, and Shawn Johnson-East have gone public with their struggles. Inspired by other women who have done the same, they’ve, in turn, inspired others to share their stories as well.

Some women have spoken about their grief while deep in the painful process of trying to become first-time mothers or welcome an additional child. Others have felt more comfortable being vulnerable only after bringing home their rainbow babies.

And for many women, the traumatic stress of struggling for so long and of undergoing the horrific rollercoaster that is infertility—so many highs, so many crushing lows and countless tears—remains forever.

In honor of Mother’s Day, and last weekend’s Bereaved Mother’s Day, here are their stories. There is hope.

Carrie Underwood

The Grammy winner suffered from secondary infertility and recurrent pregnancy loss before welcoming her and husband Michael Fisher‘s second son, Jacob Bryan Fisher, in 2019.

In August 2018, she announced that she was pregnant with a sibling for eldest son Isaiah Michael Fisher, born in 2015. A month later, in September 2018, Carrie revealed on CBS Sunday Morning that front the start of 2017, she suffered three miscarriages before conceiving Jacob.

She said that before a doctor’s appointment, after what she thought was a fourth miscarriage, she sobbed and prayed harder than ever. 

“I was like, ‘Why on Earth do I keep getting pregnant if I can’t have a kid? Like, what is this? Shut the door. Like, do something. Either shut the door or let me have a kid,'” she said. “And for the first time, I feel like I actually I told God how I felt…I went to the doctor to confirm another miscarriage. And they told me everything was great! And I was like, ‘You heard me.’ Not that He hasn’t in the past. But maybe, I don’t know, He heard me.”

In a 2019 interview with The Guardian, Carrie reflected on her past losses after welcoming her rainbow baby.

“I will always mourn those children, those lives that were a shooting star, a breath of smoke,” she said, “but I have Jacob, and he is incredible, he is the sweetest little baby. At the time it was awful, and it still hurts, but it’s kind of like OK, I have this.”

Beyonce.com

Beyoncé

The pop queen and and husband Jay-Z share three rainbow babies: Daughter Blue Ivy Carter, born in 2012 and twins Rumi Carter and Sir Carter, born in 2017.

In her 2013 HBO documentary Life Is But a Dream, Beyonce recalled finding out she had a missed miscarriage, in which no symptoms are identified before an ultrasound or doppler reveals the heartbreaking discovery.

“Literally, the week before, I went to the doctor. Everything was fine,” she said. “But there was no heartbeat.”

Beyonce poured her heart and grief into her work, writing and recording the 2013 ballad “Heartbeat.”

“I went into the studio and wrote the saddest song I’ve ever written in my life,” the singer said in the documentary. “It was the best form of therapy for me because it was a saddest thing I’ve ever been through.”

Beyonce later told Oprah Winfrey on Oprah’s Next Chapter, “I felt like there are so many couples that go through that and it was a big part of my story.”

Her experience also influenced her next pregnancy. She continued, “It’s one of the reasons I did not share I was pregnant the second time [with Blue Ivy], because you didn’t know what’s going to happen. That was hard because all of my family, my friends knew and we celebrated. It was hard. I’m not the only person who goes through this. So many people go through this and in the end, I have my daughter, and there is hope and I feel so fortunate.”

The singer said she lived in fear during her pregnancy with Blue Ivy. “But my doctor told me that I was completely healthy and don’t be crazy and paranoid and to live my life,” she said, “and that’s what I did.”

In 2019, Beyoncé said in a Q&A in ELLE magazine, “Having miscarriages taught me that I had to mother myself before I could be a mother to someone else. Then I had Blue, and the quest for my purpose became so much deeper. I died and was reborn in my relationship, and the quest for self became even stronger. It’s difficult for me to go backwards. Being ‘number one’ was no longer my priority. My true win is creating art and a legacy that will live far beyond me. That’s fulfilling.”

Kara Keough Bosworth

In April 2021, the Real Housewives of Orange County alum and husband Kyle Bosworth welcomed son Vaughn Mack Bosworth, almost exactly a year after their second child and first son, McCoy Casey Bosworth, died shortly after being born. Kara had revealed her pregnancy with her rainbow baby less than a week before announcing Vaughn’s birth. He joins big sister Decker Kate Bosworth, born in 2016.

“Last year on April 12th, we held McCoy for the last time,” Kara wrote on Instagram on April 12, 2021. “Remembering those moments will haunt me forever. Feeling robbed and grateful today as I also remember the moment Vaughn landed on my chest. Not sure I’ve ever experienced happiness like that. That journey from our darkest day to the brightest hasn’t been easy. But we kept going. When people would say, ‘I can’t imagine what you’re going through,’ I tried to ignore that I’m living the unimaginable, and instead I focused on the fact that I’m ‘going’ through it.”

She continued, “It isn’t stagnant. It’s movement. We’re headed in a direction. So we kept going. And when people would ask, ‘How are you doing?’ I’d reply, ‘I’m doing.’  Because sometimes, that’s enough. In my case, that was everything. When I’d get frenzied in my grief, my doula @4thtrimesterfitnessmethod would remind me to just do the next thing. I’m so glad the ‘next thing’ was you, Vaughn Mack. You’re not the next best thing; you’re the best next thing. You’re not a replacement; you’re an extension. Thank you for making this April 12th so much better than the last, sweet boy.”

Shawn Johnson-East

The retired Olympic gymnast suffered a miscarriage in 2017 and documented her and husband Andrew East‘s painful loss in a YouTube video. In November 2019, Shawn gave birth to their rainbow baby, daughter Drew Hazel East. A little more than a year later, the star announced she was pregnant again, revealing in March 2021 that she and Andrew were expecting a son.

Even amid so much happiness, she still carries those worried, telling E! News in April that learning she was expecting Drew “was absolutely terrifying.”

The first time she learned she was pregnant, she continued, “It was, like, the greatest day of my life. The second time I found out I was pregnant, I was so afraid that I couldn’t celebrate it because it wouldn’t last that it almost stripped all the joy out of it for me for awhile.”

After her miscarriage, like many before her, Shawn found solace in the online community of women who expressed empathy and shared their own stories of pregnancy loss. Just remembering she wasn’t alone helped ease some of that grief.

“I’ve had friends ask me, you know, what could they have said or what could they say to other friends?” Shawn said. “And, honestly, that’s hard because there’s nothing that makes it okay. I think just, especially as a community of people, having someone tell you, ‘It’s okay. And you’re going to get through it,’ is probably the best.”

Céline Dion

The pop superstar struggled to conceive before welcoming her and now-late husband René Angélil‘s son René-Charles Angélil in 2001. She then suffered from secondary infertility as well.

In 2008, she told Oprah Winfrey that she would love to have another child, calling René-Charles their “miracle baby.”

“I always keep a little window open and say, ‘Listen, I’ve been blessed so much in my life, if I do have a child, I’m lucky,” she said on The Oprah Winfrey Show.

She later went through six rounds of IVF and a miscarriage before giving birth to fraternal twin sons, Nelson Angélil and Eddy Angélil, in 2010.

Lisa Ling

In 2010, the TV journalist revealed on The View that she suffered a missed miscarriage when she was seven weeks pregnant.

“I felt more like a failure than I’d felt in a very long time,” she said. “When I heard the doctor say there was no heartbeat, it was like bam, like a knife through the heart.”

In 2013, Lisa gave birth to her and husband Paul Song‘s rainbow baby, Jett Ling Song. They welcomed another baby girl, Ray Ling Song, in 2016.

Michelle Obama

The former First Lady revealed in her 2018 memoir Becoming that she suffered a miscarriage before becoming a mom. She underwent IVF to conceive her and former President Barack Obama‘s two daughters, Malia Obama, born in 1998, and Sasha Obama, born in 2001.

“What nobody tells you is that miscarriage happens all the time, to more women than you’d ever guess, given the relative silence around it,” Michelle wrote in her book. “I learned this only after I mentioned that I’d miscarried to a couple of friends, who responded by heaping me with love and support and also their own miscarriage stories.”

Nicole Kidman

During the actress’ 11-year marriage to Tom Cruise, which ended in 2001, she suffered the loss of an embryo through an ectopic pregnancy, a life-threatening condition in which a pregnancy occurs outside the uterus and must be terminated.

“I know the yearning. That yearning. It’s a huge, aching yearning. And the loss! The loss of a miscarriage is not talked about enough. That’s massive grief to certain women,” Nicole told Tatler magazine in 2018. “There’s an enormous amount of pain and an enormous amount of joy on the other side of it. The flipside of going through so much yearning and pain to get there is the feeling of ‘Ahhhh!’ when you have the child.'”

During their marriage, Nicole and Tom adopted daughter Isabella Cruise, born in 1992, and son Connor Cruise, born in 1995. Nicole married Keith Urban in 2006 and gave birth to daughter Sunday Rose Kidman Urban in 2008. In 2010, the couple welcomed daughter Faith Margaret Kidman Urban through a surrogate.

In 2014, Nicole publicly expressed a wish to expand their family. “I mean, I hope every month that I’m pregnant, so there we go. But I never am,” she told Australian radio station KIIS 1065. “I would be jumping for joy if I was. It won’t happen. No! I’m 47, it won’t happen.”

In 2017, the Teen Mom OG star suffered a miscarriage and then underwent treatment for depression after experiencing suicidal thoughts. At the time, she and husband Tyler Baltierra were raising daughter Novalee Reign Baltierra, born in 2015, six years after the couple placed their first daughter, Carly, for adoption, as seen on 16 and Pregnant.

In 2019, the Teen Mom OG stars welcomed a rainbow baby, daughter Vaeda Luma Baltierra. In December 2020, Catelynn wrote on Twitter that she suffered another pregnancy loss, writing, “I am sharing this to let you know you are not alone.”

In February 2021, the couple announced on social media that they were expecting another baby girl.

On the season nine finale of Teen Mom OG, which aired in April 2021, Catelynn reflected on her pregnancy losses. “The reason why I got triggered when I had the first miscarriage was because it was losing a child all over again and that trauma from being 16 years old and handing your child away to somebody really got triggered and it brought up all sorts of emotions. It’s just crazy what your mind can do. How it holds on to these things and brings them out in different ways.”

She continued, “I think the only thing that’s different this time around is, obviously, my mental health is in a better state because it’s not like overcoming me or making me spiral. I can tell the mental health work I’ve done has worked, but that being said, it still sucks and you still have a moment of being mad at your body. It’s super hard and it’s a traumatic experience.”

Constance Marie

The George Lopez Show actress welcomed her rainbow baby, Luna Marie Katich, in 2009 after more than three years of infertility—including attempts with the fertility drug Clomid, intrauterine insemination (IUI) and two unsuccessful IVF rounds. She suffered two losses before undergoing a third round of IVF and acupuncture and becoming pregnant with her daughter, according to People.

“I was 38-and-a-half years old when we started trying to have a baby,” she said. “I thought it would be no problem, but the three-and-a-half years it took us was the most difficult period of my life.”

Beverley Mitchell

In November 2018, the 7th Heaven alum, then a mom to daughter Kenzie Lynne Cameron, born in 2013, and son Hutton Michael Cameron, born in 2015, revealed she suffered a miscarriage of twins earlier in the year

“I never really considered that I would miscarry being that I had already had two healthy pregnancies,” Beverley wrote on her Growing Up Hollywood blog. “This was my misconception.”

She also wrote about how difficult it was to share her grief with people. “Every time I shared what we were going through I made people uncomfortable, no one ever knows what to say, and to be honest, there is nothing to say,” the actress said. “Most people who are sharing their story, we aren’t looking for anything just the opportunity to share their story. It is with sharing it that the healing begins, the acceptance that it happened, it is when you ignore it or pretend that it never happened that you cause more pain. Dismissing it almost makes it worse.”

In March 2020, Beverley announced on Instagram that she and husband Michael Cameron were expecting again.

“We finally got our gold at the end of the rainbow!!!!” she wrote. “We are pregnant with our rainbow baby.”

In July 2020, the actress announced she gave birth to daughter Mayzel Josephine Cameron.

In November 2018, the Being Mary Jane actress announced on Instagram that she and husband Dwyane Wade welcomed their first child together, Kaavia James Wade, through a surrogate. 

In her 2017 book We’re Going to Need More Wine: Stories That Are Funny, Complicated, and True, Gabrielle, who is also a stepmom to Dwyane’s three older kids, revealed she had suffered “eight or nine miscarriages” over three years and a long IVF journey.

“I’ve cried so many times today for so many reasons, mainly because I’d gotten accustomed to heartbreak and disappointment. I think a lot of us live in that space. I set up shop there,” the actress wrote on Instagram. “This moment reminded me that miracles do happen.”

Scheana Shay/Instagram

Scheana Shay

In June 2020, the Vanderpump Rules star revealed on her Scheananigans with Scheana Shay podcast that she had suffered a miscarriage after getting pregnant with her and boyfriend Brock Davies‘ first child. “I know that now I want this more than anything,” Scheana said. “The second that test said positive, I’ve never been more excited for something in my life.”

“I didn’t think I could get pregnant on my own,” she continued. “My doctors said it would be close to impossible to get pregnant on my own.”

The following October, Scheana revealed that she and Brock were expecting their rainbow baby. The reality star gave birth to daughter Summer Moon Honey Davies in April 2021.

Chrissy Teigen

The model-slash-cookbook author and husband John Legend tried to have a baby for nine years before she underwent IVF to conceive their two children, daughter Luna Simone Stephens, born in 2016, and son Miles Theodore Stephens, born in 2018.

Luna was not the first embryo Chrissy carried. Before that pregnancy, the star underwent a transfer with a previous embryo, also determined to be female through Preimplantation Genetic Screening, a common IVF regimen test to screen for chromosomal abnormalities. This embryo failed to implant.

“The first little girl didn’t work,” Chrissy told InStyle magazine in 2017, “and then the second is Luna.”

In 2020, Chrissy became pregnant naturally. Sadly, she suffered a partial placental abruption and she and John lost the baby, a boy they named Jack, that September. She was 20 weeks along—a month before a premature infant has a chance of survival in the NICU. The model shared moving photos of the couple’s final moments with their youngest son in the hospital on Instagram.

“We are so grateful for the life we have, for our wonderful babies Luna and Miles, for all the amazing things we’ve been able to experience,” she wrote. “But everyday can’t be full of sunshine. On this darkest of days, we will grieve, we will cry our eyes out. But we will hug and love each other harder and get through it.

Dylan Dreyer

In April 2019, during National Infertility Awareness Week, the Today show meteorologist opened up to viewers about battling secondary infertility and suffering a miscarriage.

She said that a couple of years after welcoming son Calvin Bradley Fichera in 2016, Dylan and husband Fichera struggled to conceive a second child. Doctors told her she had an unusually low number of healthy eggs, making it more difficult to get pregnant. She also had irregular cycles and scarring in her uterus, both of which also contributed to her infertility. After undergoing surgery to clear the adhesions, Dylan became pregnant but miscarried about a month later.

“I am blessed with the family that I have,” she said on Today, “Going through a miscarriage and not knowing what the future holds is emotional and I just want people to know that I’m going through it, too.”

Three months later, in July 2019, Dylan announced on the show that she was expecting again. She said her doctor told her she tested positive for pregnancy, on the day she was set to begin IVF treatments. In January 2020, she gave birth to another baby boyOliver George Fichera.

On New Year’s Day 2019, the Pretty Little Liars alum revealed on her Instagram Story that in 2018, she suffered a miscarriage. In June 2019, she announced she was pregnant again. She revealed the news on Instagram and in a teaser for her new bi-weekly YouTube Original Series, Almost Ready, which showed her and boyfriend Matte Babel at a pregnancy photo shoot.

“I chose to hold on until I announced because of the first time,” Shay said on the show, also adding, “I think pregnancy is awesome for the most part but it’s also really f–king lonely.”

In October 2019, Shay announced on social media that she gave birth to a baby girl. She later revealed her name to be Atlas Noa.

Jamie Otis

In 2016, Married at First Sight stars Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner lost their first child, son Johnathan Edward Hehner, when she was 17 weeks pregnant. In 2017, Jamie gave birth to the couple’s first rainbow baby, daughter Henley Grace Hehner.

In September 2018, Jamie had an early miscarriage, also known as a chemical pregnancy, and in January 2019, she revealed she suffered another miscarriage, this time at 10 weeks along, at the end of her first trimester.

The couple welcomed their second rainbow baby, son Henrix Douglas Hehner, in 2020. Jamie became pregnant with him naturally, just as she and Doug started to see a fertility doctor.

The family continues to pay tribute to their firstborn on social media.

“The boy who made me a mama,” Jamie wrote on Instagram in May 2021, alongside a photo of herself and Doug holding Johnathan in the hospital. “Yesterday was Bereaved Mother’s Day. I was just going to let it pass, but I don’t talk about my first born baby boy nearly as much as I used to. Sometimes I feel guilty for that.⁣”



She continued, “Even though I can’t hold him in my arms or rock him to sleep at night, this little guy is *always* in my heart. He showed me what unconditional love is. I’ve never had so much love for someone I only spent such a short amount of time with…I remember my first Mother’s Day. I was pregnant with Johnathan and I was so excited!!! We had began talking about names and planning a gender reveal party.⁣”

“The day I delivered him was without doubt the worst day of my life,” Jamie wrote. “He was so tiny and i felt so helpless as a mommy. I wanted so badly to do ANYTHING to help him breathe and keep his heart beating…but there was “nothing” I could do to protect him and nurture him. I got to hold him for maybe 10 minutes before the nurses and doctor wanted to take him.⁣ I remember begging them to let him stay with us for just a little while longer. But then the nurse in me felt guilty that I was holding up a bed.”

Jamie said, “Time definitely numbs the pain, but it never fully goes away.”

Hope Solo

In June 2019, the soccer star revealed in an ELLE interview that a year prior, she suffered a miscarriage after becoming pregnant with fraternal twins. It was a half-ectopic pregnancy—one of the embryos had implanted in one of her fallopian tubes instead of her uterus, and she had to undergo emergency surgery.

“The doctor said I was hours from dying,” she said.

In December 2019, Hope announced that and husband Jerramy Stevens were once again expecting twins, a boy and a girl. In March 2020, she gave birth to son Vittorio Genghis Stevens and daughter Lozen Orianna Judith Stevens.

Claire Holt

In March 2018, the Originals actress posted on Instagram a photo of herself being prepped for dilation and curettage surgery after suffering a miscarriage. “I sent it to my fiancé in the waiting room to show him that I was ok,” she wrote. “I wasn’t. I’ve never felt more broken in my life.”

Following her surgery, she continued, “I spent hours on the internet searching for women who had been through it. I was desperate to find someone, anyone, who could relate to what I was feeling. Someone to tell me that the depression and hopelessness were normal. That it wasn’t my fault. That I wasn’t broken forever. I found a community of women who shared my exact experience. Who were open and vulnerable about miscarriage, something that isn’t often or openly discussed. It breaks my heart to think that losing a baby feels like something we have to keep to ourselves.”

Claire and husband Andrew Joblon welcomed their rainbow baby, a son named James Holt Joblon, in March 2019. Claire gave birth to a daughterElle Madeline Holt Joblon, in September 2020.

In 2018, the One Tree Hill alum gave birth to her and husband Jeffrey Dean Morgan‘s daughter George Virginia Morgan, who joined big brother Augustus Morgan, born in 2010. Hilarie and The Walking Dead star tried for five years to conceive their youngest child, with the actress suffering several pregnancy losses along the way.

“I didn’t want to celebrate for fear of jinxing it,” she wrote on Instagram regarding her pregnancy with her daughter. “I didn’t want a baby shower. I checked her heartbeat every day, up until the day she was born. And now that she is here, I just stare at her in wonder all day. I see her in her daddy’s arms and I don’t take any of it for granted. She screams bloody murder and I smile because she is so wildly alive.”

Hilarie continued, “Fertility is a fickle thing. And for the other couples out there who have had dark days, we want to introduce our miracle baby to you and send you our love and support in finding yours. Please meet George Virginia Morgan. She was born February 16th. Her daddy delivered her. We love her very much.”

With her mother accompanying her on piano, Courteney Cox and ex David Arquette‘s 16-year-old daughter Coco Arquette showed off her incredible singing talent by performing a cover of Taylor Swift‘s song “Cardigan.” The Friends actress, who was also joined by musician Joel Taylor on acoustic guitar, shared a video of part of the performance on her Instagram page on Saturday, May 8, a day before Mother’s Day.

“Happy Early Mother’s Day to all those out there who are mothers, have been mothers, will be mothers, or love like mothers,” Courteney wrote, adding three heart emojis.

Many people complimented the trio, especially Coco, and noted the looks of affection and pride the actress gave her daughter throughout the performance.

“Ahhhh- mazing!!” commented Reese Witherspoon. “Go @cocoarquette_ !” While Queer Eye‘s Tan France wrote, “She sings so beautifully.”

This is beautiful…that love of LOVE…” Game of Thrones alum Lena Headey commented, adding three heart emojis.

Coco has showcased her amazing vocals before a few times on social media over the past year. In March 2020, Courteney shared a video of her accompanying her daughter on piano as the teen sang Demi Lovato‘s powerful song “Anyone.”

Later that month, the mother-daughter duo teamed up again for a cover of the haunting ballad “Burn” from the Broadway musical Hamilton. Last October, Courteney shared a video of herself, Joel and Coco performing “Silver Springs” by Fleetwood Mac.

Mark Wahlberg Gained 20 Pounds in 3 Weeks for Movie Role

Just a few weeks after his mom Alma Wahlberg passed away, Mark Wahlberg honored her on what would have been her 79th birthday.

 

On Thursday, May 6, the Wahlburgers star shared a sweet photo of himself alongside his late mom on Instagram with the caption, “Happy birthday mommy.”

 

Fellow stars and fans flooded the comment section with love and support. Actor Iko Uwais posted a collection of heart, prayer hands and uplifting hands emojis. Actress Octavia Spencer chimed in with a heart and a sad-face emoji.

 

One fan commented, “Thank you for sharing your mom with us. She brought joy to our lives just as you and your brothers brought joy to hers.”

 

Mark, along with his sibling Donnie Wahlberg, announced their mother’s passing on April 18. The family matriarch passed away at the age of 78 after a battle with dementia.

The recent tribute comes just weeks after the Patriots Day actor posted a family photo with Alma, wife Rhea and their four children Ella, 17, Michael, 15, Brendan, 12, and Grace, 11, to honor his late mom’s legacy as a grandma.

As fans may recall, Alma Wahlberg made frequent appearances on A&E’s reality television series, Wahlburgers, which aired from 2014 to 2019. The series centered around the titular chain of bars and restaurants owned by brothers Mark, Donnie and Paul Wahlberg.

 

Their mom often made audiences smile with her lighthearted candor and by calling each of her sons her “favorite.” Only when the others weren’t around, of course.
