1. The delivery room request Grant Denyer says “would have been the end of my marriage.”

Grant Denyer has made it very clear that having in-laws in the delivery room is a definite no-go.

Speaking on this morning’s Em, Grant & Ed on Sydney’s 104.1 2DAYFM, the father-of-two said his wife Chezzi Denyer would’ve quite possibly divorced him had his parents been present for the birth of his two children.

After a listener called in complaining about her husband, who is insisting his parents be in the delivery room, Grant was quick to back her up.

“It’s all about the experience of the mother, making sure she’s comfortable in that situation. And not having two in-laws at the business end making comments acting like a cheer squad.”

Honestly, we have to agree. For the sake of all the awkward family Christmases to come.

Remember that little wedding millions and millions of us watched a month or so ago? What was it again... the... royal wedding?

Yeah, that one.

Well now it's time to forget about that and focus on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's extremerly private honeymoon. So private, you might not have realised it actually happened.

Here's what we know so far:

  • The Duke and Duchess of Sussex honeymooned in East Africa, visiting two countries there.
  • According to E!, the couple went on safaris, dabbled in outdoor activities and lay in the sun.

Yeah, that's it. Oh, and this soundbite from a 'source'.

“It was the perfect break and blend of their passions,” the source told E!.

“Restorative and the perfect holiday before starting a very busy second half of 2018."

Sounds bloody lovely. If only we had some annual leave up our sleeves.

Earlier this week, newly-appointed Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle joined Queen Elizabeth for her first official royal engagements without her husband, Prince Harry.

But before the pair boarded a royal train to Cheshire, the Queen reportedly gifted Meghan a stunning set of pearl and diamond earrings, which Meghan was seen wearing at the event.

"The pearls look old, not new, and so likely come from the Queen's personal collection rather than a shop," Andrews said.

The Queen and Meghan attended three events together, including an opening of a new toll bridge and a dance performed by local schoolchildren.

5. Why one of the six Jolie-Pitt kids doesn’t need to abide by strict custody rules.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s custody arrangements for their six children have been exposed – and it’s a strict timeline the kids are on.

The couple's court documents were leaked this week, exposing exactly where and when the Jolie-Pitt children will be seeing their father over the US summer break.

The document reveals Jolie has full custody of Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and nine-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox, but includes the strict stipulation that if the children aren’t allowed to have a “healthy and strong relationship” with Pitt, his ex-wife could lose that privilege.

The Jolie-Pitt kids are scheduled to spend certain days and weeks with their father, Pitt. But their eldest son 16-year-old Maddox is not expected to stick to the same strict rules as his siblings.
