Welcome to weekend fluff, a place where you can stop trying to remember your Great-Uncle’s girlfriend’s name (place cards are too damn stressful) and start spending time with your extra-extended – read: celebrity – family.
They’ve brought lots of stories to share with you over Christmas dinner. From babies to weddings and even seriously funny viral videos, your extra-extended family are sure to keep you entertained this weekend.
1. Kate Middleton has made her first public appearances since her hospitalisation for acute morning sickness. The 30-year-old pregnant Duchess attended the BBC Sports Personality of the Year awards ceremony, wearing a dark green dress by Alexander McQueen.
Later on in the week, she and Prince William threw a Christmas party for their staff. The pair hosted 27 members of staff for lunch – including members of the Household Cavalry, their press team and private secretaries – at the Bumpkin restaurant in London. Awesome. When was the last time you went to lunch with the cavalry?

3. Closer to home, New Idea Magazine claims to know the father of Fifi Box’s baby.
According to the Sunshine Coast Daily:
A WOMAN’S magazine has claimed Sunshine Coast ironman legend Grant Kenny is the father of radio identity Fifi Box’s unborn child.
New Idea claims it can exclusively reveal that the leading Coast businessman, aviator and lifesaving identity is the dad, citing ‘multiple sources’.
Grant and (ex wife) Lisa (Curry) have three grown up children and recently told the Sunshine Coast Daily they remained good friends, despite their separation in May 2009.
Kenny was unavailable for comment today but in the past has made it clear he does not discuss his personal life.
Fifi revealed that she was pregnant live on her radio show, but has said that she will not disclose the father’s name.
5. The World’s Sexiest Man is having a baby. Channing Tatum – who was named PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive in November – has announced that he and his wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, are expecting their first child.

7. While we’re talking celebrity kids, Romeo Beckham is the new face of Burberry. (We assume that this is a temporary position, because as soon as that baby Channing is born.. well, ‘cute celebrity kid’ is going to be redefined.) The 10-year-old son of Victoria and David Beckham is the star of their 2013 Spring/Summer campaign. See the video below:
