3. Hugh Jackman opens up about his wife’s miscarriages. The well-loved Australian actor and star of Les Miserables appeared on US talk show Katie to speak about his sixteen years of marriage to Deborra-Lee Furrness and, more specifically, the miscarriages she suffered before the couple adopted their children.
“Until you go through it, you understand it’s not talked about a lot,” Jackman told host Katie Couric. Jackman said that he and Furness, who met on an Australian TV show, had always planned to adopt but wanted to try for a biological child first.
‘We did IVF and Deb had a couple of miscarriages,” Jackman said. “I’ll never forget it, the miscarriage thing… It happens to one in three pregnancies. But it’s very, very rarely talked about. It’s almost secretive, so I hope Deb doesn’t mind me bringing it up now.”
“It’s a good thing to talk about it…There’s a grieving that you have to go through.”

5. Kate Middleton and Prince William have thrown 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?
Reports are that everyone dined at a private room at the restaurant, right beneath a portrait of the Queen and had the fixed-price Christmas Turkey menu – at 30 pounds (about $50 Australian) a head.
