Welcome to your weekend edition of fluff.
So if you missed out this week, or just can’t get enough of fluff, you’re welcome.
This iconic Australian fashion designer gave birth to a healthy baby boy on Monday. 47-year-old Collette Dinnigan, her husband Bradley Cocks and seven-year-old daughter Estella welcomed Hunter Desmond David Dinnigan Cocks.
Friends of the couple told Fairfax the baby was ‘‘healthy’’ and ‘‘so gorgeous”: ‘‘There was no drama, it was a natural birth and very quick and everyone is over the moon.’’
When Collette announced her pregnancy in June, she noted that her pregnancy should not necessarily be used as a benchmark for other women looking to get pregnant later in life:
“It’s no secret we wanted to (have a baby), we got married last year so we’re very happy it’s happened,” said Dinnigan.
“But it’s one of those things for women. I think you should never wait too late in life, but we consider ourselves really fortunate.= display_ad('x18', 'hidden-xs hidden-md mm_incontent', 'MM In Content'); ?>= display_ad('x20', 'visible-xs mm_mob_incontent', 'MM In Content (Mobile)'); ?>
“I think people see so many Hollywood stars out there having babies in their 40s. It’s a message that I think women need to understand it’s very difficult to have a baby in your 40s.”

The Today Show experienced some rather severe technical difficulties on Thursday morning, with the audio deck in the studio breaking down. But the cast and crew were very much up to the challenge, laughing along with the absurdity of the situation. This was the (HILARIOUS) result:
A spokesperson for the network said: “Our production team moved quickly and managed to move the show into our news studios in record time.
“Not surprisingly, the on air team have had tremendous fun with this morning’s hiccups with Georgie giving the glass walls a quick windex wipe and Karl joking with our viewers that it was not so much a technical breakdown as it was a power outage due to all of Dickie’s hair appliances.”
Earlier this week was a reality television producer’s dream, when a romantic proposal played out live during the Big Brother finale.
BB housemate Benjamin Norris proposed to his boyfriend after it was announced that he had won the reality show.
Ben – who was one of 16 housemates on the show – won $250,000 and shocked audiences when, after leaving the house, got down on one knee to ask his partner to marry him. Watch this video of the proposal. It’s surprisingly moving……
“This was a diamond that my great grandfather bought for my great grandmother and it was worn by my parents on their wedding day so it’s something that is a part of my family,” Norris said.
“Since I’ve met Ben all I have wanted is for him to be a part of my family. And no-one is going to tell us that sitting on the couch together at the end of the day pretending that we’re married that we’re not married.”
Ever heard of a vajacial? It’s like a facial… but for your vagina. Yep. There seems to be a whole new world of vagina maintenance that has simply passed us by (vajazzling etc) 36-year-old Australian actress Isla Fisher has done an interview with Women’s Health in the US, speaking about vajacials, Spanx, breastfeeding and more:
“I’m not actually very good at the maintenance thing. I don’t buff, exfoliate, pluck, rinse, moisturise, suck, bleach…whatever all those women do. I don’t have vajacials. Have you heard of those? It’s like a spa for your vagina!
“I do watch my food. But I’ve been blessed in that I never had any body issues during pregnancy.
Isla also cited breastfeeding and Spanx as her slimming secrets.
