2. Excuse us, but we have reason to believe that Khloe Kardashian is having a girl.

In your latest instalment of the world tries to guess the future name of a Kardashian child... and gets it hopelessly wrong, this time we've tried to increase our chances from literally one in a million, to at least a good one in two split.

If we had to call it, we're going to say that Khloe Kardashian will be having a girl.

What gives us reason to suspect this? Well, the proof is in the nail polish, and it's baby pink aka pink for baby girl... Case closed.

Speaking more at length to Extra TV, the 33 year old said that she is really "embracing" her pregnancy.

"Well, now that there's more of a bump, there's a transitional period…a different shape. You're wider… So I'm embracing it now.

"You really do feel so feminine and maternal," she said

However, when it came to baby names, while she's choosing to keep the gender of her baby a secret, Khloe let us in on a couple of options.


"It’s honestly the hardest thing and I Iove suggestions, but everyone keeps giving me the same suggestions: If it’s a girl, Kristin; if it’s a boy, Tristan. I’m like, 'Could we do a little more? I need a little more options,'" she said.

Way back in 2008 (seriously, it was a decade ago!) Katy Perry made a name for herself with a little ditty called I Kissed A Girl. We all remember how saucy the lyrics like "the taste of her cherry Chapstick" were, right?

Well, as catchy as it was, the song always had its critics for trivialising and stereotyping same-sex attraction and bisexuality because, well... it did.

And now, 10 years on, Perry is with them.

“We’ve really changed, conversationally, in the past 10 years,” she told Glamour magazine. "We’ve come a long way. Bisexuality wasn’t as talked about back then, or any type of fluidity.

"If I had to write that song again, I probably would make an edit on it. Lyrically, it has a couple of stereotypes in it."

4. This is the Japanese Princess who gave up royal status for love postpones wedding, citing "immaturity".

"I wish to think about marriage more deeply and concretely and give sufficient time to prepare our marriage and for after the marriage."

The pair met six years ago and were due to be married in November this year. It's likely the wedding will be postponed until 2020.

"We feel extremely sorry for causing great trouble and further burden to those who have willingly supported us," Mako said.
