RHOP: Monique Samuels Expecting Third Child After Miscarriage

Monique Samuels is about to have her very own party of five!

The Real Housewives of Potomac star and her husband, former Washington Redskins player Chris Samuels, are expecting their third child together, PEOPLE confirms.

Monique  — who is already a mom to son Christopher, 5, and daughter Milani, 2 — first revealed the news on Instagram Saturday, showing off her baby bump in a joyful Instagram boomerang.

“I’m way too happy to be bothered… I’m full of life… LITERALLY 🤣😆🙌🏾,” the reality star, 34, captioned the video, adding the hashtags “#RHOP #moniquesamuels #realhousewivesofpotomac #blessed #partyofFive #unbothered.”

Monique’s happy news comes nearly a year after the star suffered a miscarriage.

“A little over a month ago, we had a miscarriage,” Monique said in an April episode of RHOP, reflecting on how the couple had just moved into a 12,000-square foot home in Potomac at the time. “To be honest, I don’t think we fully dealt with it. We have been nonstop.”

“As soon as I took the pregnancy test, Chris was grinning from ear to ear. And it never once dawned on me that we would lose it,” she told audiences. “Until you’ve experienced loss, it’s hard to even put it into words, you know?”

Chris said on the episode that while he was “a little down about it,” his “main concern” was checking to make sure his wife was okay. “I was concerned because I’ve seen people boo boo crying, and she never did,” he revealed. “Monique just kind of kept flowing like it was normal.”

Explained Monique: “If that were the first time Chris and I had ever tried to get pregnant and then experienced that, I think it would have been a lot harder.”

“I’ve been so nonstop busy that I don’t even know if I could completely process what was going on with my body,” she said. “But right now I’ll just use this time to keep on pursuing other business ventures that I have in mind. And when the time comes that I’m ready to have a baby, it’ll happen.”

Monique’s also launching her own Not for Lazy Moms podcast this year. In addition to that, Monique also manages and handles all the bookkeeping on the couples investment properties.

Melania Trump ‘Hates to See Children Separated’ from Families

In a surprise move from Melania Trump, the first lady has released an uncharacteristic statement about her husband President Donald Trump‘s immigration policy.

“Mrs. Trump hates to see children separated from their families,” Melania’s communications director, Stephanie Grisham, told PEOPLE on Sunday.

FLOTUS also called for Democrats and Republicans to fix the nation’s immigration crisis.

“[She] hopes both sides of the aisle can finally come together to achieve successful immigration reform,” Grisham said, adding that Melania “believes we need to be a country that follows all laws, but also a country that governs with heart.”

At the time of the statement’s release on Sunday, which marked Father’s Day, Melania had yet to publicly celebrate her husband as a father figure to their 12-year-old son Barron as well as his adult children: Donald Jr., 40, Ivanka, 36, Eric, 34, and Tiffany, 24.

Nearly 2,000 children were separated from their families during a six-week period in April and May as the Trump Administration adopted a “zero-tolerance” policy of separating families at the border, TIME reported on Saturday.

A spokesperson for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) confirmed to TIME that 1,995 children were separated from 1,940 adults by U.S. Border Patrol from April 19 through May 31 in the midst of the illegal immigration crackdown.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced in early May that officials would separate parents and children who are caught illegally crossing the border while prosecuting the parents for a federal misdemeanor.

While the parents are incarcerated, children — who are not charged with a crime — are separated and held in juvenile facilities with no clear process for reunification, TIME reported. In the past, families in this situation have typically been subject to civil deportation proceedings instead of criminal prosecution.

Meanwhile, on Father’s Day morning, members of Congress from New York and New Jersey insisted on access to Elizabeth Contract Detention Facility, a privately run detention facility in New Jersey, to meet and speak with detained fathers who have been separated from their children as a result of the crackdown, according to NBC News.

And in Texas, hundreds of protestors marched to Tornillo, Texas, where children are reportedly being held in a tent city detention facility.

Kendall and Kylie Jenner Wish Caitlyn Happy Father’s Day

Though Kendall Jenner isn’t with Caitlyn Jenner on Father’s Day, the supermodel is making sure her parent knows how much the day means to her.

“Happy Father’s Day to the soul that raised me,” Kendall, 22, shared on her Instagram Story along with two photos from the family’s early years and a more recent one of Caitlyn, 68, with her daughter Kylie Jenner.

Kendall was in Milan on Saturday, when she walked in Versace’s Spring 2019 menswear show, her first fashion show in five months. Caitlyn, who publicly came out as transgender in 2015, shared that she was in Los Angeles that same day.

Meanwhile, sister Kylie Jenner shared her own montage of throwback photos on her Instagram Story.

“So lucky to call you my dad,” the Kylie Cosmetics mogul, 20, wrote along with a polaroid of herself as a baby in her parent’s arms.

Kylie was also celebrating boyfriend Travis Scott‘s first Father’s Day since welcoming daughter Stormi on Feb. 1.

Though Kendall and Kylie wished Caitlyn a Father’s Day on social media, Caitlyn’s other children — son Burt, 39, and daughter Cassandra, 38, with ex-wife Chrystie Crownover; sons Brandon, 37, and Brody, 34, with ex-wife Linda Thompson — have yet to post holiday-themed mentions.

In May, Caitlyn admitted she has struggled to keep close bonds with all of her children.

“I spend a lot of time by myself here in the house,” Caitlyn told Broadly. “I have a lot of children, but sometimes just because of circumstances, maintaining a close relationship with your kids is very tough. They all have lives. They’ve all moved on.”

Caitlyn added, “We’re just human beings; we’re going to be here for a very short time. We come and we go and at the end, when it’s all said and done, hopefully your family is going to be there.”

The former Olympian also helped raise ex-wife Kris Jenner’s four children with the late Robert Kardashian: Kourtney, 39, Kim, 37, Khloé, 33, and Rob, 31.

However, since transitioning, Caitlyn has become estranged from Kris and the Kardashian side of the family. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians stars have been open about the fact that passages of Caitlyn’s 2017 memoir created a rift in the family. (In the book, Caitlyn alleged Kris knew more about her gender identity crisis than she says she did.)

And earlier this month, ex-wife Thompson threw shade at Caitlyn for missing their son Brody’s wedding to his girlfriend of five years, Kaitlynn Carter, on Sumba island, off the coast of Indonesia.

Although Brody’s mother, Thompson, was present for the nuptials, Caitlyn’s work commitments prevented her from being able to get to the Nihi Sumba Resort. Days after Brody and Carter said “I do,” Thompson re-posted her son’s video of the beachfront destination where he got married — and seemingly called out Caitlyn for being absent for the family affair.

“Yes, it’s on the other side of the world… But I would’ve gone to the moon and back to share in the joy of my darling son & his beautiful bride getting married!” she said. “That’s what parents do!”

Sister Wives’ Aspyn Brown Marries Mitch Thompson

Another Sister Wives star is off the market!

Aspyn Brown married Mitch Thompson in front of 120 guests Sunday at La Caille restaurant in Sandy, Utah, PEOPLE confirms exclusively.

Brown, 23, is the daughter of Sister Wives‘ Kody Brown and his third wife Christine.

The bride wore a satin and beaded dress by Alfred Angelo for the ceremony, which was held outside with a view of the mountains as the backdrop. The 400-person reception was held inside the chateau-style restaurant’s greenhouse.

As a nod to Thompson’s Scottish heritage, his mother made hats for Brown’s mom Christine and other women to wear, while the groom and Brown’s father Kody both father wore kilts.

The couple, who first met during a family party at her parents’ house, opted to go without a bridal party but still had 10 flower girls, including Brown’s younger sister Truely.

For their vows, the bride and groom wrote their own messages and did not exchange rings since they’ve already been wearing them for some time. They also chose to have a handfasting ceremony, a Celtic tradition in which couples bind their hands together during the wedding to symbolize their connection and devotion to one another.

As for why they chose their venue, “It’s beautiful on its own, so we didn’t have to do much,” Aspyn says. “There’s flowers, a beautiful view and a pond. We didn’t have to do much for décor because the venue is already great on its own. It takes away from us having to worry about a lot of details and allows us and our families to just enjoy it.”

Sister Wives will be returning to TLC for its eighth season.

“This Father’s Day will probably be one of the most memorable ones we’ve ever had together!” the Real Housewives of Atlanta star, 50, wrote alongside a photo of the pair smiling in their kitchen.

”We are usually doing something all fancy but today we chose to just enjoy each other, have some company over and take tons of pics right here in the kitchen😂 no really,” she continued, before sweetly adding, “I love you more today than ever Gregg. Happy Father’s Day hunni❤.“

On Thursday, one day after sharing her husband’s diagnosis, Leakes thanked her friends and followers for all of their encouragement and advice.

“We have been so overwhelmed with the outpouring of love, support, thoughtfulness and prayers,” Leakes wrote on Instagram. “Some of you have educated us on cleanses, diets and holistic health care. We wouldn’t know some of these things if it wasn’t for the reach we have been blessed to have. So far, Gregg is doing great! He feels good with the exception of not being able to eat a lot.”

Leakes, who initially did not say what type of cancer Gregg has, shared on Thursday that it is not prostate cancer. She also added that the cancer has now been removed, and they’re deciding whether to start chemotherapy.

No matter what they decide, Leakes will continue to post about his treatments on social media.

“We want to be as public about this as possible to help the next person or family that might have to step into these shoes one day,” Leakes continued. “Gregg wants to encourage all men to get regular physicals and labs! He was that guy that hated to see the doctor! (NO he doesn’t have prostate cancer) but listen, if anybody knows how to fight, it’s me and Gregg! Let’s do this cancer.”

Vanessa Trump Wishes Donald Trump Jr. a Happy Father’s Day

Sunday marks Donald Trump Jr.‘s first Father’s Day as a single dad, and his estranged wife Vanessa has nothing but good wishes for him as he celebrates the day with their five children.

“Happy Father’s Day times 5 @DonaldJTrumpJR,” she wrote on Twitter, alongside a photograph of the 40-year-old smiling with their five children together — Kai Madison, 11, Donald III, 9, Tristan, 6, Spencer, 5, and Chloe, 4.

“Hope you had an incredible day with our kiddies,” she added just three days after she defended his new relationship with Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle.

The president’s eldest child split from wife Vanessa in March, when she filed for divorce after 12 years of marriage.

Of course, Trump Jr.’s estranged wife wasn’t the only one to share some sweet messages with the father of five on Sunday.

While documenting his Father’s Day adventures, Trump Jr. proudly showed off the five homemade cards his children made for him, which praised him for being the “number 1 dad” and the “best dad ever!”

“Gonna be a great Father’s Day with these little monsters,” he wrote alongside a photo of himself lifting two of his children in the pool. “Hope all of you dads out there get to enjoy as much as I will,” he added.

He also went on to share a photo of his youngest daughter Chloe, who just turned 4 on Saturday, practicing her golf swing.

In between all of the day’s family-filled activities, Trump Jr. made time to hit the gym, where he proudly announced to his followers that he had achieved a new personal record.

“Very psyched,” he wrote alongside a video of himself sweating it out. “Hit 300 lbs today for a new Squat PR. Not bad for a 40 year old dad of 5 who sits at a desk all week😂💪.”

He went on to thank everyone who helped him achieve his goal, while adding that he looked “forward to the hate comments.”

Despite splitting up, both Trump Jr. and Vanessa have maintained a cordial relationship — spending together at the president’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida and attending the White House Easter Egg roll together as a family earlier this spring.

Vanessa also appeared to give her blessing to her husband’s new relationship — publicly confirming it on Twitter before even they did.

Vanessa made the revelation on Thursday afternoon, when she defended the new couple on Twitter against what she described as an “attack” by the New York Daily News.

“The lengths people will go to attack a woman simply because she’s dating Don,” Vanessa, 40, tweeted. “We’ve been separated for over 9 months and respect each other’s decisions & privacy. We’ll focus on raising our great kids. Would be nice if the press did the same rather than obsess over our pvt lives!”

Her comments come about a month after Trump Jr. publicly praised Vanessa on social media, calling her “the best mom in the world” in a Mother’s Day post.

Justin Timberlake: Son ‘Makes Me Feel a Love I Didn’t Know Existed’

Justin Timberlake is reflecting on the joys of parenting on Father’s Day.

The singer, 37, celebrated the holiday on Instagram Sunday by sharing some of his favorite father-son photos since welcoming his son Silas in April 2015.

“The last 3 years of my life have brought more joy than I could ever imagine. Being a father is such a trip… an amazing discovery every day,” Timberlake captioned a series of four pictures, including one of Silas watching his superstar dad in concert.

“My son: it is my honor to be your Daddy. You make me feel a love that I didn’t know existed. I will ALWAYS be there… to pick you up when you fall, to lift you up when you are ready to soar, and to remind you that your humility will be your guide through this thing called life,” the father of one continued.

Timberlake also gave a shout-out to fellow dads out there, writing, “And to all the Dads out there: Keep on keeping on! Our children are watching and listening more than we know! I’m celebrating you all today! Happy Father’s Day! Cheers!”

The star continued his Father’s Day tradition of sharing new photos of Silas. Last year, he posted a collage of him and wife Jessica Biel, 36, spending quality time with their son.

“These 2 angels… The greatest gift I’ve ever known. And, the reason I won’t EVER STOP! Happy Fathers Day to all the Dads out there! Hope you are enjoying! #Howearlyistooearlyforafathersdaybeer,” Timberlake wrote at the time.

In addition to Father’s Day, Timberlake has much to celebrate.

Earlier this month, he wrapped the first leg of his Man of the Woods tour in Philadelphia and will be kicking off the European leg of the concerts in Paris on July 3.

And on April 30, Timberlake gushed about his wife and son at *NSYNC’s Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony.

“Mom, thank you so much for being there. And now my beautiful wife, who’s here today, is now the mother of our beautiful son [Silas]. I love you so much,” he said from the stage.

Sean Lowe Opens Up About 4-Week-Old Son Isaiah

Father’s Day is just around the corner and this year, Sean Lowe is celebrating two times over.

“I take so much pride in fatherhood,” the 34-year-old former Bachelor — who welcomed his second child with wife Catherine Giudici Lowe, son Isaiah Hendrix, on May 18 — tells PEOPLE.

Lowe and his wife Catherine are also parents to Samuel Thomas, 2 next month. And just like with their first child, they didn’t find out the sex of the new baby until his birth.

“I was very surprised that we had another boy. I couldn’t believe it for a second when I saw after he came out! I was mentally prepared to have a girl.”

Continues Lowe, “So far everyone is saying he looks like me. Which is great because with Samuel, everybody says he has his mama’s face and my coloring. So it’s nice that I have a kid who looks like me now.”

And the father of two says he’s excited to one day teach his boys some of the lessons he learned from his own dad.

“My dad was always the one who would rather do something himself rather than pay someone else to do it,” says Lowe, who has partnered with Lowe’s and CRAFTSMAN.

“I want to take that same spirit and instill it in my sons. It’s such a valuable tool to have — if something goes wrong, I can fix it myself! Not to mention I can have something to pass down to them. The CRAFTSMAN Mechanics Tool Set will last forever.”

For now, the former reality star is grateful to be getting some stretches of snoozes (“Isaiah is a great sleeper!”) and treasuring the moments of brotherly bonding.

“Samuel constantly wants to give him kisses and Isaiah just lays there and takes it and never cries,” says Lowe. “He’s such a chill baby.”

“I just think it will be so fun to watch them grow up together and be best friends,” Lowe shares. “I’m really excited to watch the dynamic as these boys grow into men.”

As for the big day on Sunday, “I just want quality time with the kids and Catherine,” says Lowe. “There’s a donut shop down the street from us so we’ll walk down there as a family. And we might go to the community water park. It’s really hot in Dallas!”

Still, Lowe admits it sometimes feels “bizarre” to actually be a father. “I feel too immature to have a family sometimes,” he says with a laugh. “But our goal is to fill our home with laughter and love, and we do that every day.”

He explains, “It’s fun to be goofy, while still maintaining discipline. I crack a lot of jokes at Samuel’s expense. But he’s going to grow up with a good sense of humor and always knowing how much his dad loves him.”

Adam Levine Celebrates First Father’s Day as Dad of Two

Behati Prinsloo and her two daughters are some lucky ladies.

The 29-year-old supermodel shared a special dedication to her husband Adam Levine on Father’s Day, their first since welcoming their second child, Gio Grace, on Feb. 15. The Maroon 5 frontman and Prinsloo are also parents to daughter Dusty Rose, 20 months.

“My first baby holding OUR second baby…..” she captioned a black and white photo of a shirtless Levine holding their baby. “Our girls are so lucky to call you dad and I’m so lucky to have you as a husband a lover and a friend. We love you. Life is better with you. 👨‍👩‍👧‍👧”

Prinsloo added a message honoring her own father, writing, “To my dad, thank you for being the best example to show me what i would want in a husband and father one day, the way you look at mom is the way Adam looks at me, thank you for being the best dad EVER.”

During an appearance on Ellen DeGeneres’ daytime talk show last month, the singer teased that the couple weren’t done with expanding their family.

“At this rate, I think I’m going to definitely let my wife be in control of the timing of the next child,” he said. “We want, like, a lot. At least [five].”

“Like Maroon 5,” joked the host.

“Maroon 5. We have to have a band of children,” replied Levine, 39, kidding that the more little ones they have, the more it’s an “insurance policy for your future.”

Dusty is already a huge fan of her “so cute” baby sister. As her dad explained of his older daughter, “She’s obsessed with Gio. Every morning when she wakes up, the first thing she says is, ‘Gio, Gio, Gio, Gio!’ ”

“And runs into her room. It’s really cute,” added The Voice coach. “Totally in love with her. She’s a little rough with her ’cause she doesn’t understand [being gentler] yet, so she’ll get in her face and do crazy stuff.”

Admitted the father of two, “But it’s just so much fun. Being a dad’s the most fun thing on the planet.”

Opening up about the pair’s marriage on Sway in the Morning on SiriusXM’s Shade 45, Pinkett Smith shared that no matter what, she would always be there for her husband.

“Here’s the thing about Will and I, it’s like, we are family, that’s never going down! It’s just not! Ever!” she said on Wednesday.

“Because we are family — take out all that whole marriage, relationship, crap — at the end of the day, Will and I are family, I’m going to hold him down,” she added. “It doesn’t matter, all that relationship and what people think, ideas of a husband and a partner and all that, man, whatever, at the end of the day, that’s a man that can rely on me for the rest of his life, period.”
