So in today’s instalment of ‘all your wannabe celebrity friends are hanging out without you’, we just learnt Meghan Markle AKA the Duchess of Sussex, is friends with the king of the Christmas carol, Michael Buble.

The singer also got a shout out in Meghan's now defunct blog The Tig, which also featured a Christmas mix tape curated by the man himself.

"This proud papa, husband to the lovely Luisana Lopilato, and certifiably delightful guy, makes for one hell of a dinner companion," she wrote about Buble.

“But there’s this other thing about him that is perhaps worth mentioning. Oh right. He sings.”

And yes Meghan, we are very aware of that.

2. Bride & Prejudice’s Seyat has reflected on his tough journey to marrying Jess.

It's been a tough journey to marriage for Bride and Prejudice's Jess and Seyat.

Over the course of the reality show, Seyat's mother Fatima certainly made no secret of the fact that she didn't approve of her son's fiancee.

Not only did Fatima call Jess "a slutty party girl" and "a wh*re", she even attempted to bribe her with $10,000 cash to leave Seyat's life.

Posting to Instagram following their wedding, Seyat has shared how the pressure took a toll on the young couple.

"I just wanna say thank you to everyone for their support as it wasn't easy for me and Jess," he wrote.

"This was a life time experience and [just look] how far I came from the bottom to here," he continued.

"All the arguments, the tears just for this journey and I just wanna thank everyone for being there."

3. Hugh Jackman has teared up paying tribute to his wife Deborra-lee Furness.

When it comes to celebrity relationships, Hugh Jackman and Deborra-lee Furness are #couplegoals.

The Aussie actor has on many occasions spoken highly of his wife of 22 years, and he most recently got a bit teary when speaking about their relationship as he received the Kirk Douglas Award for Excellence in Film at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival.

And to be honest we got emotional just watching him deliver the speech.

“You taught me that life is never defined by the highlight reels... Life actually happens in between that. Life happens when the camera is not rolling,” he said.

“You believed in me when I couldn’t. You’ve loved me with a passion and a depth that I didn’t even know existed - and I don’t think I felt that I deserved.

"You have pushed and encouraged me when I was scared to venture out. You have smiled me into smiling. You have sung me into singing. You have loved me into loving and like everything I do in my life, I share this with you. I love you.”

I would like to share some of the more intimate details of Lisa and my ceremony. It embodied several spiritual practices we hold dear to our hearts. An integral part of our pre- ceremony above all else, was to show respect to the rightful owners of the land on which we wed. Wiruungga Dunggiirr from the Numba Gumbaynggiirr nation bestowed us with blessings and protection. It was truly the highest honor. The ceremony was lead by our high priestess, Sonnie McAuley Who spoke of the similarities between Christ and Buddha. And the providence of their love. Lisa’s brother Julian Origliasso lit a white candle for those who could not be with us. And in honor of their family tradition, read a Roman Catholic prayer. It was a beautiful start to our ceremony. Then my triplet mate, Noelle Huffman read one of Lisa and I’s favorite Shinto love tales- The Wind in the pine tree. Next my best man and triplet brother, Lucas Huffman read an Apache marriage blessing. In honor of the people of The Americas. Lisa’s twin sister Jessica Origliasso recited a beautiful Hindi prayer to Ganesh- the remover of all obstacles, to bless our marriage. Next our high priestess spoke of the importance of mothers exemplified in the miracle at Canna. Lisa and I recited our hand written vows to each other. Followed by the Ancient Germanic signing of the contact- in Runic writing of the Elder Futhark- which I had carved out of a stump of California costal oak. My advice to any lovers is to make your wedding day your own. There is no wrong way to love or worship. As long as it comes from the heart.
