Muslim Baby Girl Names With Gorgeous Meanings

The world’s 1.8 billion Muslims live all across the globe, from Canada to Singapore, Russia to South Africa. Muslim names, as a result, come in many different languages, in addition to Arabic, which is the language of the holy Quran. You’ll find Muslim names in Urdu, Turkish, English, Persian, French and many more languages.

Because they are found all over the world, Muslim names usually have many different variant spellings and pronunciations. For example, Ayesha, which is one of the most popular Muslim girl names, can be spelled A’aisha, Aisha, AischaAichaAishatAisyah, Ayşe or Aixa. How’s that for ensuring your baby is unique among millions?

While the names may vary in origin, they all have one thing in common: their honorable meanings. In Islam, it’s considered important to choose names that have virtuous or spiritual meanings behind them. That’s because Muslims believe that one’s name is reflective of one’s future, deeds and personality. As a result, you certainly won’t find Muslim names that have any violent or offensive connotations.

The Super Girl sex position is the raunchy move that helps you orgasm if your partner has a small penis – The Sun

WANT to feel like a superhero in the bedroom and also try a new position?

The Super Girl sex move is driving couples wild and is ideal if your partner’s package is on the smaller end of the scale.

In a study of 170 women in the ­Netherlands, more than three ­quarters thought penis length and girth were unimportant – and this move helps to make the most of any size.

To get into the Super Girl, the woman needs to lie on the bed facing down with her feet squeezed tightly together, just like the flying heroine.

Then the man enters from behind and the closed legs help to increase friction on the vaginal walls.

The tighter the legs are closed the more pleasurable it should be for you both.

This isn’t the only X-rated move that is setting pulses racing recently.

Couples are going wild for “the 68”, which is a new variant on the pleasurable classic.

While the acrobatic 69 involves both partners simultaneously getting pleasure, the 68 focuses on giving one person the time of their life.

Let the pleasure begin!

Meanwhile, the unicorn sex position is the magical bedroom move couples are loving.

And there is a sex position called the pretzel dip… and it’s driving couples wild.

Girl, 7, trick-or-treating in bumblebee costume is shot in the chest by stray bullets in Chicago street – The Sun

A SEVEN-year-old girl dressed as a bumblebee was shot in the chest while trick-or-treating in Chicago on Thursday evening.

The girl was collecting candy in Little Village, on the Southwest Side, when at least one person in a group of at least three men began firing at around 5:30pm, reports claim.

A fire department spokesman said the unnamed girl was shot in the upper chest area and taken to a nearby hospital in a critical condition, while a man in his early 30s was also struck in the left hand.

A witness, Lali Lara, told the Chicago Tribune that the man began screaming, "My little girl's been shot!" – though it has been reported that the man and girl were not together.

Lara told the Tribune she rushed the little girl and her family inside the store, adding "Everybody was in shock.

“I was pressing on her and calling her name so she won’t close her eyes.

"She was looking at me, and I was calling her name.

"She was holding my hand for three minutes and then she let me go.

"I have kids — I would go crazy if something happened to my kids."

Police are reportedly investigating and there were no immediate arrests.

A police spokesman confirmed in a tweet that law enforcement believe the girl was not the intended target.

The incident comes two days after three people were fatally shot and nine people were injured in a shooting at a Halloween party in Long Beach, California.

Around 25 to 30 people had been at the party, police said.

As of Thursday evening, the shooter or shooters were still on the run.

Former Met poster girl facing trial for disclosing information

Armed police woman who became a poster girl for Scotland Yard before losing 33 race claims is facing trial HERSELF for downloading crime victims details

  • Carol Howard, 40, came to prominence as a firearms officer for the Met Police 
  • Met used image of the officer on security posters for London 2012 Olympics 
  • But she soon became a poster girl for litigation after suing the force for racism
  • She now faces trial for unlawfully obtaining and disclosing personal data

A former poster girl for Scotland Yard who lost 33 race claims against the police watchdog is now facing trial for ‘recklessly’ disclosing information about victims.

Carol Howard, 40, came to prominence as a firearms officer for the Metropolitan Police, which used an image of the gun-toting officer on security posters at the 2012 London Olympics.

But she soon became a poster girl for litigation after suing the force for racism.

Then she launched 33 race and discrimination claims against her subsequent employer, the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC), all of which were rejected.

Carol Howard, 40, came to prominence as a firearms officer for the Metropolitan Police, which used an image of the gun-toting officer on security posters at the 2012 London Olympics 

Now she faces a new court battle after being charged with unlawfully obtaining and disclosing personal data when she allegedly downloaded information from IPCC computers after she left the organisation.

It is said that she ‘knowingly or recklessly’ broke data protection rules by downloading sensitive files relating to victims and witnesses from the watchdog which is now known as The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC).

The case brought by the Information Commissioner is due to go to trial in February.

Miss Howard launched 33 race and discrimination claims against her subsequent employer, the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC), all of which were rejected 

Separately, this week an employment judge ordered the former detective to pay £5,000 in costs for her ‘misguided’ claims against the IPCC, which wasted £50,000 of taxpayers’ money.

The lawyers who represented her have also agreed to pay £40,000 in costs and apologise for pursuing what was described as an ‘exceptional waste of time’. The mother of one accused the IPCC of discrimination and harassment after she got a temporary job there as an investigator in September 2016.

She sued for £144,000, saying: ‘In my view, the IPCC, now the IOPC, is an institutionally racist employer operating a hostile environment for its [black, Asian and minority ethnic] staff.

‘It is corrupt and not fit for purpose. It protects senior white police officers.’ But the Central London Employment Tribunal concluded that the serial litigant would complain of victimisation if she was unhappy at work.

Dismissing all 33 of Miss Howard’s allegations, Judge Joanna Wade said her claim of being the victim of a ‘witch hunt’ was unfounded, adding: ‘It is a matter of great sadness to us, first, that Miss Howard and her witnesses came to this tribunal with such a misguided view of her position.

‘We are left with the uncomfortable conclusion that the claimant has an unshakable but incorrect belief that if she does not like what is happening or is prevented from doing the work she chooses, this is discrimination, victimisation, harassment.’

The tribunal held in May last year heard the real reason she left the IPCC was that she was facing disciplinary action for falsifying timesheets and poor performance. In conclusion, Judge Wade suggested Miss Howard had only launched her IPCC claim because she had successfully sued the Metropolitan Police in July 2014 for £37,000.

Following a costs hearing earlier this month, Judge Wade told journalists: ‘I have to conclude this was an exceptional waste of time.’ In her judgment published this week, the judge noted that Miss Howard was broke and said she was suffering from ‘severe anxiety’.

Diane Kruger Calls Baby Girl Her 'Everything' in Rare Mother-Daughter Pic


In love with her little one! Diane Kruger shared a sweet shot with her daughter on Wednesday, October 23.

“My everything,” the actress, 43, captioned a black-and-white Instagram post with her baby girl. While Kruger faced the camera in the outdoor photo, only the back of her daughter’s head could be seen. The little one wore a striped top and a bib.

“[Love] u,” Norman Reedus, commented on the social media upload.

Us Weekly confirmed in November 2018 that he and the National Treasure star had welcomed their first child together. (The Walking Dead star, 50, already shares 20-year-old son, Mingus, with his ex-girlfriend, Helena Christensen).

The actor spoke to Us Weekly exclusively earlier this month about his daughter’s milestones. “She says Papa and Dada,” the Florida native revealed. “She’s just started saying mamamamama. It’s probably just easier to say [my name]. I’m going to take it that it’s all about me.”

While the Ride With Norman Reedus star hasn’t had an “easy” time balancing his baby with his career, he told Us at the time: “Of course I see her. I have jelly on me from this morning, but [filming TWD] is a hard schedule even without a baby.”

Reedus and his little one have a sweet bond, Kruger told Us exclusively in April. “He just looks at her with unconditional love,” the Bridge alum said at the time. “I wish he looked at me like that! He’s just very great with her.”

Mingus is also “great” in his big brother role, the German actress shared. “Nineteen years is a big gap, so he’s stepping up to be protective,” she explained.

That being said, Kruger and Reedus don’t have any plans to expand their family. “I’m done!” the model told Us. “I think our family is pretty much complete.”

She is enjoying these early days with her daughter, who is “not really girly” so far. “It’s fun to have a girl, I will say, although … she’s more of a dude,” Kruger told Us.

The pair met in 2015 while costarring in Sky and made their red carpet debut at the Golden Globes three years later. In May, Us broke the news that Kruger was pregnant.

You Had a Baby Girl Because You Were Stressed as Hell, Study Says

File this one under Studies We Don’t Exactly Know What to Do With:

A study from Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons and New York–Presbyterian claims that maternal stress during pregnancy may actually affect fetal and child development — including the sex of your baby. Hey, there are currently studies out there searching for the “gay gene” too, so just go with it.

The study appeared online in PNAS, the journal of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Catherine Monk, Ph.D., is a professor of medical psychology at Vagelos College as well as director of women’s mental health at the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology at New York–Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center. Monk served as the study leader.

“The womb is an influential first home, as important as the one a child is raised in, if not more so,” Monk said of the reasoning behind the study. We beg to differ with Monk, as the womb is a short-term rental, more like an AirBnB stay for baby. The family one is born into is, well, a life sentence, if we’re being frank. But we get the idea: The stress levels of a mother-to-be may affect a fetus more than previously realized.

Monk and her colleagues studied in depth 27 indicators of stress — including physical, emotional, psychosocial, lifestyle — in 187 healthy pregnant women between the ages of 18 and 45. We were surprised to find that only 17% (that’s just 32) of the pregnant women were psychologically under stress, showing diagnosable levels of anxiety and depression. Another 16% (30 women) presented with high blood pressure or high caloric intake and were considered physically stressed. The rest of the women were considered to be healthy (67%, 125 women).

So what of these numbers? Well, the research was intriguing: The sex ratio of male births to female births in the stressed subsets of women showed more females born.

“Other researchers have seen this pattern after social upheavals, such as the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York City, after which the relative number of male births decreased,” Monk explained. “This stress in women is likely of long-standing nature; studies have show that males are more vulnerable to adverse prenatal environments, suggesting that highly stressed women may be less likely to give birth to a male due to the loss of prior male pregnancies, often without knowing they were pregnant.”

So…that double X chromosome is a powerhouse, is our takeaway. (Can’t say we’re shocked, exactly. Have you met any women?)

The study offered other insights as well. For instance, physically stressed moms were more likely to experience premature labor and birth than unstressed moms. And fetuses showed “reduced heart rate—movement coupling, an indicator of slower central nervous system development—compared with unstressed mothers.”

Interestingly, the amount of social support offered to a mother seemed to make it more likely that the mother would give birth to a male child. But again, that would suggest that the mother-to-be was already receiving plenty of everyday support before she presumably got pregnant — and the sex organs of the baby were formed. A baby shower and spa day at 12 weeks pregnant does not magically revert a female fetus to a male fetus, in other words. (Duh.)

So if all women are waited on hand and foot and screened daily for depression, are we risking a planet full of men? Because, uh, it already feels like we’re living ON A PLANET FULL OF MEN. I for one am happy to take some hard knocks during pre- and early pregnancy to ensure a planet gets all the females it needs.

Thirty percent of pregnant women in the study reported job stress or mental illness issues, and that sort of stress is linked to premature birth, which in turn is linked to higher rates of infant death and ADHD and other issues in childhood.

“We know from animal studies that exposure to high levels of stress can raise levels of stress hormones like cortisol in the uterus, which in turn can affect the fetus,” Monk explained. “Stress can also affect the mother’s immune system, leading to changes that affect neurological and behavioral development in the fetus. What’s clear from our study is that maternal mental health matters, not only for the mother but also for her future child.”

Yeah, but it also matters if Dad has been pounding too many IPA microbrews. Let’s just say there’s still a whole lot to unpack when it comes to understanding fetal development, and this is yet another study we’re taking lightly. No one wants stress raining down on pregnant women, but maybe the human race has found way to reset itself after wars and terrorist attacks and other violence perpetuated (primarily) by men — by creating stress that actually limits how many more males can enter the world. Not hard science, but definitely food for thought.

Three-day-old baby girl found barely breathing and weighing just 2.4 lbs after ‘parents buried her ALIVE’ – The Sun

A TINY newborn girl was found ALIVE after she was buried in a shallow grave – it is believed by her parents, who were hoping for a boy.

The three-day-old was found inside a sealed clay pot, wrapped in cloth and buried just three feet beneath the earth at a village crematorium in Northern India, with docs dubbing the little girl a "fighter."


In a shock twist to the miraculous story, the little girl was discovered by labourers who were digging a grave for another couple whose daughter had been stillborn.

Devastated Hitesh and Vaishali Kumar were at the crematorium in Uttar Pradesh to bury their own daughter – when labourers struck something beneath the soil.

'ALIVE AND CRYING'

Hitesh said: "My wife had given birth to a stillborn child at a private hospital in Rampur Garden locality of the city.

"We took the baby to a crematorium where the labours were digging a grave. Suddenly, a labour's spade hit a pot. It was kept in a bag.

"When they took the bag out, they found a baby wrapped in a cloth. She was alive and crying.

"At one point I thought my daughter has come alive but the voice was actually coming from the pot.

"We couldn’t understand much and asked the guard to have a look at it. When the pot was opened, a baby girl was kept inside.

"I immediately called ambulance and informed police to ensure that her life was saved."

The horrified couple alerted police and ambulance services, who rushed the tiny baby to hospital where she is receiving treatment for a lung infection.

Police chief, Abhinandan Singh said: "We are trying to find the parents of the baby and we suspect that this must have happened with their consent."

'THE CHARACTER OF A TRUE FIGHTER'

Tragically, it is not unusual to find abandoned baby girls in some parts of India where female infanticide is particularly high, as old-fashioned and backwards traditions pit male children above girls.

Doctor Saurabh Anjan branded the little one a "fighter," saying: "Premature babies often need less oxygen supply to survive, she truly is a fighter."

Of her miracle survival, Dr Anjan said: "She must be receiving some oxygen when buried in the grave through the pores in the soil which was possibly loose as the grave must be fresh.

"She is currently under the condition of hypothermia and constantly on oxygen support. Her lungs have caught infection and she is unable to take direct feed.

"She used her brown fat also known as Brown Adipose tissue, and is a special type of body fat that is activated to maintain core temperature, to survive.
"She survived despite her platelet count dropped to 10,000 while the normal range is 150,000 and exhibited the character of a true fighter."

"We are providing every possible treatment to her."

Incredibly, the couple who discovered the newborn – Hitesh and Vaishali Kumar – intend to adopt the baby girl.

WHY DOES INDIA HAVE SUCH HIGH LEVELS OF FEMALE INFANTICIDE?

  • Baby girls are considered a curse and a financial burden in many poor areas of India.
  • Families fear having to pay expensive dowries for their weddings, while boys are usually counted upon to take care of their parents in their old age.
  • The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) estimates up to 50 million girls and women are missing in India's population as a result of infanticide and sex selective abortions.
  • The children's rights group CRY has estimated that of the 12 million females born yearly in India, 1 million will have died within their first year of life
  • Women's rights activist, Donna Fernandes has dubbed the practice a type of 'female genocide'

A family member of the couple said: "My sister and her husband were devastated after they gave birth to a stillborn but this baby has given some hopes to them.

"They are willing to adopt her and will approach the child welfare committee once she is completely healed and fit enough to go home."

Happy couple: The news comes after the Good Omens star first confirmed he was expecting his first child with Anna in July, just two months after they were first romantically linked

The actor was previously linked to Aisling Bea in April 2018 when the pair attended the Olivier Awards in London, but didn’t walk the red carpet together. 

They later appeared to confirm their romance by sharing a photograph online of them attending a charity event for refugees in New York. 

An onlooker at the event said at the time: ‘They stayed close all evening and Michael leaped to her defence when a reveller smashed a glass near her, making sure she was OK.’

Proud: Anna, who bills herself as a ‘Swedish/NYC actress currently living in the UK’, shared a series of loved-up snaps with Michael as she accompanied him to the New York screening and London world premiere of his new show, Good Omens

Aspiring actress: Although she is yet to hit the big time, she has appeared in productions of Othello and Frank Wedekind’s Spring Awakening

Michael’s ex-girlfriend, American comedian Sarah Silverman, 48, later revealed he had split from Aisling in September 2018.

However, the former flames were then pictured together in December 2018, before she moved on with actor Andrew Garfield, 36, in March 2019 following his split from singer Rita Ora, 28.

Michael dated Sarah for four years until December 2017, with the relationship ending because he wanted to come back to Britain. 

The actor had lived in Hollywood for over a decade but returned to the UK when his daughter Lily turned 18 and began attending college at New York University. 

Hunk: Anna has accompanied Michael to the BBC studios to promote Good Omens

Partner: The pair’s relationship has apparently gone from strength since May, with Anna and Michael now on a ‘glamping’ holiday in West Wales

LA: The pair also enjoyed a sunkissed trip to LA last month, where Anna snapped this photo of Michael

Playful: Anna shared a video of the film star killing a fly with spray during their romantic holiday in Wales

He said he and Sarah felt in ‘different ways’ that they both wanted to ‘get more involved’ in the political climate after Brexit and Donald Trump’s election.  

‘It led to me wanting to address the issues that I thought led some people to vote the way they did about Brexit, in the area I come from and others like it,’ he said.

‘I felt a responsibility to do something, but it did mean coming back here – which was difficult for us, because we were very important to each other. But we both acknowledge that each of us had to do what we needed to do.’ 

Sarah also spoke fondly of her ex and former Masters Of Sex co-star in an interview shortly after the split, admitting long-distance was to blame for the parting of ways. 

Ex: Michael was previously linked to Come Fly With Me actress Aisling, from April 2018 to early 2019 (pictured May 2018)

Former flame: Michael dated Sarah Silverman, 48, for four years until December 2017, with the relationship ending because he wanted to come back to Britain (pictured December 2016)

She shared: ‘I was with Michael [Sheen]. We broke up over Christmas. As you know, he moved back to the UK and his life is really there and my life is really not there.

‘But I love him to pieces and you know if he’s in town and we’re both single, we will make love.’    

Michael has one daughter, Lily with British screen star Kate, 46, who he was with between 1995 and 2003, and continues to maintain a very close relationship with.

The pair first met when they worked together on Woody Allen’s flick Midnight In Paris.  

They are said to have called  off their romance due to ‘different visions for the future.’ 

Sarah Silverman – 2014-2017

Newport-born Sheen had a four-year romance with comedian Sarah, 48, which ended in December 2017. 

Last year he revealed that his relationship with Silverman had hit the rocks because he wanted to come back to Britain.

He and Sarah felt in ‘different ways’ that they wanted to ‘get more involved’ in the political climate after Brexit and Donald Trump’s election. 

Lorraine Stewart – 2004-2010

Michael sparked up a romance with ballet dancer Lorraine shortly after his split from Kate.

They went their separate ways in mid 2010. 

Carrie Keagan – 2013-2014

 Following his split from Rachel in 2013, Michael sparked up a romance with  glamorous American presenter Carrie Keagan, 39,  which lasted a matter of months.

They first met in May 2011 when he appeared on Carrie’s VH1 show Big Morning Buzz Live. 

 

Aisling Bea – 2018-2019

Michael’s last romance was with Come Fly With Me actress Aisling, 35,  from April 2018 to early 2019. 

In September 2018, Michael’s ex Sarah confirmed their split although they were back on by December.

By March 2019, the pair had split once more with Aisling linked to actor Andrew Garfield. 

 

The actress said in an interview with InStyle magazine in 2004: ‘We were very lucky in that we didn’t have an acrimonious split. 

‘We are still very close and [our daughter] sees us around each other. He’s absolutely one of my most favourite people ever. I love him dearly – I would miss him dreadfully if he wasn’t in my life.’  

Michael also dated The Notebook star Rachel McAdams, 40, from October 2010 to February 2013.     

Ex factor: Michael also dated The Notebook star Rachel McAdams, 40, from October 2010 to February 2013 (pictured in May 2011)

Friendly exes: In December 2016 Kate revealed she was so close to Michael that she was planning on spending Christmas with the Welsh actor and Sarah in their Los Angeles home (pictured May 2016)

The actor is best known for playing Tony Blair in three separate films, is also famous for his roles in Masters of Sex, The Twilight Saga and Frost/Nixon. 

Anna bills herself as a ‘Swedish/NYC actress currently living in the UK’ and has appeared in productions of Othello and Frank Wedekind’s Spring Awakening.

The thespian completed a three-year theatre programme in Sweden, followed by summer courses at London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) and Guildford School of Acting. 

The Far From The Madding Crowd star has been swept up in a whirlwind romance with Anna since the couple went Instagram official in May.

Close bond: The actress has previously laughed off claims their close bond is strange, saying they’ve been apart longer than they’d ever been together

Long-term love: Following his split with Kate, Michael had a six-year relationship with ballet dancer Lorraine Stewart from 2004-2010 (pictured June 2010)

Anna shared a series of loved-up snaps with Michael as she accompanied him to the New York screening and London world premiere of his new show, Good Omens. 

In one smitten snap, a glamorous Anna posed arm-in-arm with a suited and booted Michael in London, with the beauty writing:  ‘What an incredible night to be a part of! Again I’m overwhelmed with pride and couldn’t be happier for Michael & the cast.’

She also shared a photo of the pair holding hands as they watched the fantasy epic. 

Anna also snapped a selfie with the Welsh actor in New York with the caption: ‘So, so, so proud of this angelic face.’ 

The pair’s relationship has apparently gone from strength to strength as the couple enjoyed a ‘glamping’ holiday in West Wales. 

Fling: In 2013, Michael sparked up a romance with presenter Carrie Keagan which lasted a matter of months (pictured January 2014)

Did they? Michael was also rumoured to have romanced his Masters of Sex co-star Caitlin Fitzgerald after a photo emerged of them kissing in August 2013 – however a rep told MailOnline at the time the pair were ‘just friends’ (pictured August 2015)

Massachusetts girl, 10, dies after choking on carrot at school, relatives say

Fox News Flash top headlines for Sept. 25

Fox News Flash top headlines for Sept. 25 are here. Check out what’s clicking on Foxnews.com

A 10-year-old Massachusetts girl died after choking on a carrot at school, according to reports.

Her family members say Marilyn Ofobi Korankyewaa started choking after ingesting a carrot at Belmont Community School in Worcester on Sept. 17.

School officials administered first aid and called 911, but Marilyn lost consciousness and later died at the hospital, WCBV Boston reported Tuesday.

"She ran to the bathroom. Fortunately, she went in there with a friend," her uncle, Ken Asafo-Adjei, told WCVB. "So her friend had to rush back to (the teachers) when Marilyn was complaining that she was choking on something."

School officials did not respond to WCVB's requests for comment.

"Going to the bathroom, nobody was there. We don't know what happened," a local pastor and family friend, John Amoah, told the news outlet. "I'm not saying this to blame them, but if the school has a system in place that will be good; a procedure."

Now, grief-stricken relatives are seeking answers.

“I’m still asking questions … like … how can someone just pass away from eating carrots?” Marilyn’s cousin Maggie Bota asked news outlet WHDH.

Her uncle added, "We’re told they did [attempt aid]. As to how it was done … who did it … that’s questions we need answered."

Mayor Joseph Petty will help the family's quest for a sense of closure.

"I think they want to know what happened exactly – a timeline. We’ll do that,” he said.

Marilyn's funeral is scheduled for Thursday.

A little girl frightening encounter with coyote was caught on camera.

Shocking moment a coyote charges at a little girl in her suburban Illinois front garden as she walks to a swing – and then again when she runs away

  • A five-year-old girl managed to escape a coyote that came after her in her yard 
  • Surveillance camera shows a coyote lurking at the bottom of the driveway
  • The entire chase was then caught on doorbell camera as the coyote ran after her

A little girl was almost attacked by a coyote in her front yard – and it was all caught on a doorbell camera.

The surveillance video which was taken in Villa Park, west of Chicago, Illinois, shows the youngster walking around her garden when a coyote suddenly charges at her.

Incredibly, the wild animal stops shy of making contact, but as the five-year-old girl runs away, it charges at her once again.

Five-year-old Christine Przybylski was walking to her swing in her yard when a coyote charged at her 

The youngster had gone to check her mailbox to see if her Halloween costume had arrived

Christine walked back to her swing without realizing a coyote was tracking her every move

It a moment to realize what was happening when a coyote sprung from out of nowhere 

In the video, the coyote is seen lurking near the driveway as the young girl skips around. 

Christine Przybylski had just gone out to check her mailbox for her Halloween costume, but as she made her way back across the front lawn, the animal appeared to come from out of nowhere as it sprinted toward her. 

The young girl ran back toward the driveway as the coyote appears to try to attack but then backs off, the doorbell video shows. 

‘I decided to go to the swing,’ Christine said to ABC7. ‘When I went to the swing he run by and I was like, going, and then I was like “Oh my god.”‘ 

‘I felt its ear,’ she said. ‘It almost bit my rib.’ 

‘I decided to go to the swing,’ Christine said. ‘When I went to the swing he run by and I was like, going, and then I was like “Oh my god.”‘

The little girl stood frozen for a moment out of fear before making a run for it

The animal came so close she felt its fur brush against her, her parents said, but the girl was not injured, according to WGN.

Her mother said Christine won’t be playing unaccompanied in the front yard again any time soon.

Coyote’s in general are not considered dangerous because they rarely attack humans.

Outdoor experts suggest people not to run away from coyotes as they could consider them prey.

The coyote chased the little girl as she attempted to run for safety

Mom, Elizabeth, says her daughter won’t be allowed to play in the front yard unattended 

Making noise or yelling at the wolf-like animals is usually enough to keep them at bay.

The village reminded residents of advice from the forest preserve on living with coyotes.

‘Like domestic dogs, coyotes test their limits around humans and learn something from each exchange,’ the forest preserve states on its website. 

‘Unless they associate people with negative experiences, such as loud noises, they can become comfortable walking down streets or sidewalks or near schools, basking in yards or parks, and shortening the distance between themselves and humans. A bold coyote does not necessarily mean an aggressive coyote, but a coyote that maintains its fear of humans will be less likely to cause problems.’

Greek Baby Names for Boys Girls Your Yia-Yia Will Approve Of

You’ve got to love Greece. With its gorgeous seaside, temperate climate and delicious cuisine, it’s wonder the country is a favorite travel destination for celebrities — and plenty of film backdrops (Mamma Mia, anyone?). Of course, there’s so much more to Greece than just the beautiful views and people; it’s also the birthplace of Western society, duh. Oh, and it’s the home of — and inspiration for — a whole slew of beautiful Greek baby names.

Math, science, astrology, medicine, libraries, philosophy, democracy, the alphabet and the Olympic Games?

And you guessed it: Those are some pretty epic names for kids, too.

But the Greek contributions don’t end there; the Ancient Greeks also inspired centuries of people to expand their imaginations, minds and moral values by passing down mythological tales of powerful yet fallible gods and goddesses.

It's a Girl! Mike 'The Miz' Mizanin and Maryse Ouellet Welcome Baby No. 2


Double trouble! Maryse Ouellet gave birth on Friday, September 20, welcoming her second daughter with her husband, Mike “The Miz” Mizanin.

“We’ve got the whole world in our hands!!!” she captioned a photo on Instagram on Sunday, September 22, showing their newborn’s tiny foot cradled in her parents’ and big sister’s hands. “Welcome, Madison Jade Mizanin Born 09/20/2019 8:02am 7lbs 15ounces.”

The professional wrestler, 38, announced in February that they were expecting baby No. 2. “We always said when we had a huge announcement that we would announce it right here in the WWE, in front of all of you,” he told the WWE Elimination Chamber crowd at the time. “And tonight, we got a really big announcement, so without further ado…”

His wife, 36, then officially made the announcement, revealing with a hand on her baby bump: “We’re having another baby!”

The Miz and Mrs. stars, who got married in the Bahamas in 2014, welcomed their first daughter, Monroe, in March 2018.

“I have no idea what I’m doing but I will listen, learn and love the best way I know how,” the Real World alum admitted on Instagram at the time.

Two months after announcing that they were expanding their brood with a second child, the couple held a gender reveal party complete with pink and blue balloons and a matching cake.

“INCREDIBLE MOMENT,” Maryse captioned a May photo of her and her husband standing beneath a shower of pink confetti. “#itsagirl.”

The athlete gushed about fatherhood to Us Weekly exclusively in April 2018. “I’m at her service no matter what. I’ve never had anyone have so much control over me,” he said.

The actor added, “I’m a night owl so I usually stay up at night with her and my wife sleeps. Then whenever I sleep, my wife takes over. Literally, we’re just tagging in and out. I wanted to be the dad that was able to feed my daughter, hold my daughter, really be there for my daughter. I want to be the dad that’s here. I want to see her. Every day, her face changes, her body changes, everything about her is just changing every single day. It’s crazy.”

Girl who said she's too pretty for jail is spared jail for drink driving

A drunk driver who arrogantly declared that she was too ‘pretty’ to go to jail has avoided being sent to jail

Lauren Cutshaw was ordered to pay a $187 fine at a court hearing last month, and also got to keep her driver’s licence following the incident in Bluffton, North Carolina, in August 2018.

The real estate agent, 34, shot to fame after being pulled over and declaring: ‘I’m a very clean, thoroughbred, white girl…I’m a white, clean girl.’

Cutshaw, who claimed to have only drunk two glasses of wine, spoke of her fears about being jailed, saying: ‘I don’t wanna know what it’s like. I’m a pretty girl, please don’t make me go there.’

She even boasted about her ‘perfect grades’, graduation from a ‘high accredited university’, and previous stint as an ‘all-American cheerleader.’

Cutshaw’s attempts to charm the cop who pulled her over for speeding fell on deaf ears, with video footage showing him asking her ‘what that had to do with anything.’

But Cutshaw was undeterred, responding: ‘You’re a cop, you should know what that means…you should know based on people that come in this room.’

She is believed to have been referring to other, non-white people arrested by the same police department, according to The Smoking Gun. 

Cutshaw struck a plea deal which saw her admit drunk driving in return for having charges of speeding, possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia dropped.

She was found to have a blood alcohol content of .18 – more than double the .08 legal limit.

As part of her plea deal, Cutshaw must also complete South Carolina’s Alcohol and Drug Safety Program, which aims to rehabilitate drivers caught behind the wheel while drunk or high.

You Go, Girl! Teresa Giudice Shows Off Bikini Body in Greece: Pics

One hot mama! Teresa Giudice showed off her bikini body while vacationing in Mykonos, Greece, on Sunday, August 25.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, 47, put her fit figure on display in a black and white two-piece swimsuit as she danced the day away with pals on the beach. Giudice paired her look with dangling earrings and stacked bracelets.

The light-hearted outing comes amid the reality star’s husband Joe Giudice’s ongoing battle to stay in the United States after he was ordered to be deported to his native Italy late last year. The businessman, 47, has been in ICE custody since March, where he was taken after he completed a 41-month prison sentence for fraud, including mail, wire and bankruptcy.

Teresa got candid about how Joe returning to Italy would affect her and the couple’s four daughters, Gia, 18, Gabriella, 14, Milania, 13, and Audriana, 9, during a video interview released by Bravo Insider in June.

“If he gets deported, he’ll never be able to go to their graduation[s], celebrate their birthdays, anything,” she shared at the time. “He’s going to be missing out on so much. The girls adore their father and no child should have to go through what my daughters are going through. They should have their daddy here.”

The Standing Strong author has since celebrated the high school graduation of their eldest daughter, Gia, sans Joe. Teresa opened up to Us Weekly last month about sending the teen off to college in the fall.

“I’m excited for her,” she gushed. “Growing up, I wasn’t allowed to go away to college, so I’m excited for her. I’m happy. I’m proud of her. She’s an amazing kid.”

Teresa added: “She’s excited too. … It’s her next journey.”

London girl, 15, found safe after being featured in Roma’s missing children social media campaign for Mert Cetin transfer – The Sun

A MISSING 15-year-old girl from London has been found safe and well after featuring in a social media campaign by Roma.

The Italian giants decided to feature missing children around the world on videos when new players signed.

When they signed Turkish defender Mert Cetin this summer, included in the clip was the missing teenager from London.

There was also a telephone number included for people to call with any information.

And now Roma have confirmed she has been found – her photo and name has been removed from their social media accounts for legal reasons.

Speaking at the launch of the campaign, a club official said at the time: "With each player signing announcement the club makes this summer, a video will be released that will feature the faces and details of a number of children who are currently missing.

"The goal of generating publicity could result in someone, somewhere, offering valuable information about the whereabouts of the missing child."

This support enables us to continue our work and bring more missing children back to safety

The Serie A club are known for snippy Twitter posts and humorous player signing announcements, often going viral on social media.

But Roma claim they have now changed their digital media strategy and want to use their "extensive following" for "social good".

Alongside photos of the kids and information about them, the Italians provide contact details to offer whereabouts of the missing children.

The club shared a comment from Missing People spokesman Ian Roullier when the news about the girl being found broke.

He: “When we publicise an appeal for a missing person, our hope is that it will reach people far and wide. #ASRoma have provided a platform to make this happen.

“We’re so grateful to #ASRoma, as well as their thousands of fans, the fans of other clubs and members of the public for engaging with these videos and helping our reach go even further.

"This support enables us to continue our work and bring more missing children back to safety.”

Terrified webcam girl flees Poundland after being offered cash for sex by sick shopper who recognised her – The Sun

A WEBCAM girl fled Poundland after she was offered cash for sex by a sick shopper who recognised her.

Katy, 26, worked in Birmingham, West Midlands swapped her work as an escort for an online audience because it is 'safer'.

She always understood that she could meet clients in odd places, even the school run.

But she was terrified when someone noticed her at the discount store near her home.

She told The Mirror: "I was recognised by someone I had never spoken to on the site.

"All I could think was ‘If this guy offers me a pound, I’m going to die.

“I pretty much ran out of that shop. I was terrified. I thought ‘I need to get out of here’.”

While she did like "being taken out for nice dinners, staying in nice hotels", there was always a risk "that it could turn nasty".

On one night, a gang member posed as a client, and intended to rob her, with his gang waiting outside to get into her flat.

That incident made her abandon her work and turn to the webcam.

Katy added: "I felt like I was playing Russian Roulette with my safety".

She suffered with anxiety and depression, but believes sex work has helped her overcome those conditions, even with its dangers.

She likes the freedom of not having to call off sick and explain why to her manager, and she also has spare time to chase her music and art hobbies.

But now she warns other women that they will always be at risk, even if they try to be particularly careful with their image.

You Go, Girl! Kourtney K Praised for Not Editing Stretch Marks


No filter needed! Kourtney Kardashian generated a wave of praise for going au naturel in a new photo, where she opted to not edit out her stretch marks.

“Poosh away your pooch with these 5 simple moves. Link in bio for @amandaeliselee’s step-by-step instructions for each,” the 40-year-old captioned an Instagram post for her lifestyle brand, Poosh.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star was pictured on a boat as she wore a stylish black swimsuit that was paired with black sunglasses and a chic Panama hat. She proudly posed with her left hip pushed out, exposing her stretch marks.

https://www.instagram.com/p/B1FW08jgDQs/

Poosh away your pooch with these 5 simple moves. Link in bio for @amandaeliselee’s step-by-step instructions for each. #pooshthemoves

A post shared byPoosh (@poosh) on

The unfiltered moment received positive feedback from fans as they voiced their appreciation for Kardashian’s decision. One fan noted how they “love when we get to see stretch marks [and] normal bodies.” A second individual commented that “you can actually see her stretch marks and this is what a real body looks like.”

Yet another Instagram user regarded Kardashian’s picture as “the realest thing I’ve ever seen,” with one more adding that the shot was “so gorg” while adding that “those stretch marks are giving me life & helping me embrace mine.”

“Thank you so much for not editing out your stretch marks,” a fan replied to Kardashian’s post.

The eldest Kardashian sibling is no stranger to promoting messages of body positivity. In 2016, the reality TV personality revealed that she won’t use the word “fat” in front of her now 7-year-old daughter Penelope.

“There are so many conversations that we have without thinking the kids are listening,” she told Cosmopolitan at the time. “I just don’t want to start getting anybody self-conscious. They say if a mother is confident about her body that the daughters are way more likely to not have eating disorders.”

After revealing that she weighed only 98 lbs. in 2018, Kardashian posted a message about self-love to her Snapchat. The inspirational poem was a “love note” to her body.

“First of all, I want to say thank you. For the heart you kept beating even when it was broken,” the post read. “For every answer you gave me in my gut. For loving me back even when I didn’t know how to love you. For every time you recovered when I pushed you past our limit. For today, for waking up.”

Pregnant! Brandon Jenner, Girlfriend Cayley Stoker Expecting Twins


Double trouble! Brandon Jenner’s girlfriend, Cayley Stoker, is pregnant and expecting twins, Us Weekly confirms.

The “Death of Me” singer, 38, already shares 4-year-old daughter Eva with his estranged wife, Leah Jenner. He and Don Felder‘s daughter, 36, tied the knot in 2012 and announced their separation six years later.

“It is with love in our hearts that we feel it’s time to share some personal news with you all,” the former couple wrote in a September 2018 Instagram statement. “After celebrating 14 beautiful years together, we have lovingly come to the decision to end the romantic aspect of our relationship. We are deeply proud of the life we’ve cultivated together and are truly grateful for the bond of friendship we hold and cherish today. It is stronger than ever.”

They added, “Even though we have chosen to separate as a couple, we still love one another very, very much and remain a major part of each other’s lives- as best friends, family and loving parents to our daughter. There has been no lying or cheating or fighting that prompted this change, just an expansion of our individual evolution which has inspired us to support each other in a new way. We are still, very much, a loving family and are bonded by a deep connection that is rooted in love.”

Last month, Leah and Brandon reached a custody agreement as part of their divorce settlement, sharing joint legal and physical custody of Eva.

The Princes of Malibu alum and Stoker sparked dating rumors six months after his split. “We’re as happy as can be,” the former reality star told Us exclusively in May. “She’s really opened up my world in a way that’s made me really hopeful again about a lot of things. That’s the greatest gift that anybody could give. I mean I can’t say enough good things about her.”

Jennifer Garner, 47, says she is no longer the ‘hot girl’

Jennifer Garner, 47, says she is no longer the ‘hot girl’ and is not offered as many roles as she used to get in her 20s during candid essay

She was named People’s Most Beautiful Woman of 2019. 

But Jennifer Garner confessed on Tuesday that she’s no longer a ‘hot girl’ of the moment in a self-written essay for InStyle magazine for their 25th anniversary issue. 

The 47-year-old spoke about how her 25 years as an A-list star has changed her and how during her breakthrough role in Alias, she thought she had seen it all.  

Looking back: Jennifer Garner opened up about how her life has changed since becoming a Hollywood star, as she recalled some of her earlier covers for InStyle magazine’s 25th issue on Tuesday

Recalling her first InStyle cover back in 2004 at the age of 32, she said: ‘I had been working professionally in the industry for 11 years, and I thought, “Wow, I have been through some things.” I thought I’d been around the block.’ 

‘Fifteen years later I realize, “My god, I hadn’t even been through anything bad yet.”‘ 

Jennifer also revealed at the time she was jumping from project to project and in turn as one of the ‘hot girls’ at the time, making choices that ended up defining her. 

She didn’t know what was coming! Recalling her first InStyle cover back in 2004 at the age of 32, she said: ‘I had been working professionally in the industry for 11 years, and I thought, “Wow, I have been through some things.” I thought I’d been around the block’

The actress explained she felt boxed in whether it was for going on hiatus, being pregnant or having her three children.  

And while confessing she’s no longer as stressed as before in terms of finding her place in the industry, she said that unlike in her late 20s and early 30s, the offers don’t come in as frequently. 

‘I don’t have the offers coming at me that I had during that first cover [back in 2004], but I know that what does come my way is because someone really wants to see me take a shot at a role.’  

And despite Jennifer claiming the offers have slowed down, she still continues to be one of Hollywood’s brightest stars. 

Long road: Jennifer also revealed at the time she was jumping from project to project and in turn as one of the ‘hot girls’ at the time, making choices that ended up defining her (pictured 2018) 

Early rise to stardom: One of Jennifer’s earliest breakthrough roles was the character of Sydney in Alias 

A mom first: Here the movie star is seen with her children in 2018; their father is Ben Affleck

Always close pals: ‘I used to see Reese [Witherspoon] mainly because we have sons the same age. But she was really the only person in that kind of position in Hollywood that I could call’

Jennifer also touched on the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements, crediting them as being ‘life-changing’ and a place where friendships in Hollywood were formed. 

‘I used to see Reese [Witherspoon] mainly because we have sons the same age. But she was really the only person in that kind of position in Hollywood that I could call.’ 

The Pearl Harbor actress said now she’s been able to reach out to many women in Hollywood who share the same concerns as she does.   

Jennifer stunned in a brown colored ensemble for the beachside shoot. 

She opted for a Nili Lotan singlet top that was tucked into a pair of Max Mara striped trousers. 

The mom to Violet, 13, Seraphina, 10, and Samuel, 7, accessorised with Anita Ko jewelry and styled her brunette tresses out into a natural voluminous wave. 

Her glam featured a soft dewy complexion complete with a sweep of blush and an overlined nude lip. 

Hollywood friends: Reese has a son, Tennessee, who is the same age as Jennifer’s son Samuel

Big Girl! Stormi Shows Off Talking Skills in Video With Travis Scott

Growing up! Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott’s 17-month-old daughter, Stormi, can talk — and she proved it in an adorable new video.

“All done,” the rapper, 28, said in the Tuesday, July 16, clip. The toddler repeated the phrase, and when he said, “hi,” and, “bye,” she mimicked those as well.

“Only love,” the Grammy nominee captioned the father-daughter video. “Us vs The globe.”

The little one has been showing off her skills since November 2018 when the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 21, filmed Stormi holding a Kyle Cosmetics product. While the reality star kept slowly repeating the name of her makeup brand in the hopes that Stormi would say it, she simply babbled and loudly yelled, “Dada!” and giggled.

“Trying to teach her some new words,” the reality star captioned the video. Her boyfriend commented, “Da Da. I’m OTW back momma.”

Jenner and the “Sicko Mode” rapper welcomed their daughter in February 2018. Eight months later, the makeup mogul opened up about Stormi’s strong bond with her dad.

“They have this crazy connection,” the E! personality admitted on a Snapchat live post at the time. “She’s definitely a daddy’s girl. It is cute to watch. When Dad’s around, I’m not even there, it’s like she doesn’t even see me, but it’s cool, whatever.”

When the little one celebrated her 1st birthday in February, Scott gushed about his girl on social media. ““ITS [sic] MY QUEEN, MY HEART, MY AIR, MY EVERYTHING,” he captioned a spread of Instagram photos. “STORMI’S BIRTHDAY TODAY. I LOVE U SO MUCH BABY. U THE SMARTEST AND LOVING BABY EVER. UR SPIRT KEEPS ME GOING EVERY DAY ME AND UR MOMMY LOVE U AND CANT WAIT TO SHARE MORE BEAUTIFUL DAYS WITH U. HAPPY BDAYY STORMIII LETS [sic] RAGE.”

Proud papa! Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson praised his three daughters in a sweet shout-out.

“She’s so beautiful,” the actor, 47, told Extra at the Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw premiere on Sunday, July 14, of his daughter Jasmine, 3. “And Tia, and of course my oldest, Simone.”

The Titan Games host went on to say, “It’s just the best thing. … I have a house full of just strong, badass women. … It’s terrifying, but it’s awesome.”

The Ballers star welcomed Simone, now 17, in 2001 with his ex-wife, Dany Garcia. The teen graduated high school in May and is headed to New York University in the fall. Johnson and his girlfriend, Lauren Hashian, share two toddlers — Jasmine and Tia, 14 months.

Living with so many females is definitely an interesting dynamic for Johnson. “I grew up an only child,” he explained to the outlet. “My dad was tough. He kicked my ass, so there was a lot of testosterone growing up, so there is this balance, having all this estrogenic energy, then also me having the opportunity to infuse ‘father’ and hopefully setting a standard of what a man should be in [my daughter’s] lives.”

The actor opened up to Us Weekly exclusively at Sunday’s premiere, gushing about how “really extremely proud” he is to “showcase [his] Samoan side” in the Fast & Furious spinoff.

“[It] was very special and deeply personal to me,” the former professional wrestler told Us at the time. “We knew that for the very first time ever in a big, Hollywood, blockbuster movie, the Samoan culture was being showcased. … It’s a cool thing, it’s an important thing, it’s a critical thing and a vital thing.”

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw premieres on Friday, August 2.

Lucie Donlan slams girl contestants and claims they ganged up on her

Love Island’s Lucie Donlan reveals she wanted to QUIT the villa as she claims female contestants ganged up on her and made her feel ‘alone’

Love Island’s Lucie Donlan has claimed that she felt her female rivals on the ITV2 dating show ganged up on her, leading her to contemplate quitting the show. 

The 21-year-old surfer from Newquay, Cornwall was dumped from the island alongside George Rains, 22, but has confessed that she previously wanted to quit in a candid interview with The Sun. 

Despite now being booted from the show, the blonde beauty has spoken out about how she was treated by the other girls in the Mallorcan villa, alleging they put unnecessary pressure on her due to her growing friendship with Tommy Fury.

‘Alone’: The 21-year-old surfer from Newquay, Cornwall was dumped from the island alongside George Rains, 22, but has confessed that she previously wanted to quit

She said : ‘I did think about quitting. There was one night when I was really upset, because the girls had drilled it into Joe that I shouldn’t be spending all this time with Tommy.’

‘He came to talk to me about it but I was more upset by what they had done. After that, I didn’t really want to speak to them because I felt I couldn’t trust them enough. I thought if I did, they might b***h about me behind my back.’

Viewers watched as Lucie distanced herself from the female islanders after a situation where Amy Hart, 26, badmouthed Lucie for preferring to hang out with the boys, before reprimanding the beauty for opting to stay with Joe. 

The tearful star said she had eventually confided in the show’s producers that she wanted to quit, who persuaded her to sleep before making a decision.  

Lucie said the girls had ‘backed off’ when Arabella Chi, 22, and Maura Higgins, 28, joined the villa, who she praised for defending her. 

The beauty also said Arabella had confronted the other girls about ‘ganging up’ on her.

‘Ganged-up’: Despite now being booted from the show, the blonde beauty has spoken out about how she was treated by the other girls in the Mallorcan villa (above with some of the female Islanders)

She claimed: ‘They denied it but they obviously realised bad things were being shown on TV. And they didn’t like it, so they backed off after that.’

Confessing that the girls’ behaviour made her feel ‘alone’, Lucie admitted that her time on the show improved as she got closer to ring girl, Maura. 

The 21-year-old had a turbulent time on the villa and fears for her wellbeing were questioned when she sobbed after her first partner Joe Garratt, 22, was dumped. 

Confession: Lucie told Biz on Sunday: ‘ I did think about quitting. There was one night when I was really upset, because the girls had drilled it into Joe that I shouldn’t be spending all this time with Tommy’

Friends: Lucie’s claims about the other girls was not evident when Joe was dumped and the surfer seeked solace in the girls while they comforted her

However, Fans had initially accused Joe of ‘gas lighting’ the blonde when he instructed Lucie to make friends with the girls after Amy complained the surfer didn’t make an effort.

Lucie, who has always said she gets on with boys more than girls and insisted she wasn’t a ‘girl’s girl’, broke down as she had a difficult conversation with Joe. 

Lucie’s claims about the other girls was not evident when Joe was dumped and the surfer seeked solace in the girls while they comforted her. 

On the day beds, Amy said to Lucie: ‘We’ve all had our differences but situations like this make you realise that we all need to stick together. We’re going to support you.’

LOVE ISLAND’S AFTERCARE PROCESSES IN FULL…  

ITV outlined their duty of care processes ahead of the series 5 debut of ITV2’s Love Island

The production team have continued to evolve their processes with each series, as the show’s popularity has risen and the social and media attention on Islanders has increased. The key changes this year are – enhanced psychological support, more detailed conversations with potential Islanders regarding the impact of participation on the show, bespoke training for all Islanders on social media and financial management and a proactive aftercare package which extends our support to all Islanders following their participation.

Creative Director ITV Studios Entertainment Richard Cowles said: ‘We’re very excited that Love Island is back for another series. It is the nation’s favourite dating show and we have a fabulous new cast of young singles all looking for love and ready for a summer of romance in the iconic Love Island villa.

‘The format of the new series will be familiar to Love Island viewers and we can’t wait to see how the new Islanders take to life in the villa and how relationships blossom. We hope that viewers will be hooked as they watch these young singles fall in love – hopefully it will be a summer to remember for both the Islanders and our viewers.

‘Due to the success of the show our Islanders can find themselves in the ‘public eye following their appearance. We really want to make sure they have given real consideration to this and what appearing on TV entails. Discussing all of this with us forms a big part of the casting process and, ultimately, their decision to take part.

‘Also, as we are outlining today our welfare processes follow three key stages: pre-filming, filming and aftercare and we are increasing our post filming support to help Islanders following their time in villa.’

The information below is an update of what we published in March this year.

Eight months ago the Love Island team engaged eminent physician and a former Chief Medical Officer Dr Paul Litchfield who has extensive experience in the area of mental health, to independently review and work with us to evolve and enhance our processes and oversee our duty of care.

Dr Litchfield CBE said: ‘I have reviewed Love Island’s duty of care processes from end to end and they show a degree of diligence that demonstrates the seriousness with which this is taken by the production team.

‘The processes and the support offered to Islanders have necessarily evolved as the show has developed and grown in popularity. The aim throughout has been to identify vulnerabilities at an early stage so that necessary adjustments can be made or potential Islanders can be advised that the show is not right for them. A high level of professional expertise has been engaged to provide comprehensive support not only while young people are actively engaged with the show but also for an extended period when they are adjusting to life thereafter. Professional input is a key element in safeguarding the wellbeing of Islanders but the genuine caring attitudes I have observed from those who make the show are as important.’

The duty of care process for series 5 includes:

Pre Filming and Filming

– Psychological consultant engaged throughout the whole series – from pre-filming to aftercare.

– Thorough pre-filming psychological and medical assessments including assessments by an independent doctor, psychological consultant and discussion with each Islander’s own GP to check medical history.

– Potential Islanders are required to fully disclose any relevant medical history that would be relevant to their inclusion in the villa and the production’s ability to provide a suitable environment for them.

– Managing cast expectations: detailed explanations both verbally and in writing of the implications, both positive and negative, of taking part in the series are given to potential cast members throughout the casting process and reinforced within the contract so it is clear.

– Cast are told they should consider all the potential implications of taking part in the show and work through this decision-making process in consultation with their family and those closest to them, to ensure they feel it is right for them.

– Senior Team on the ground have received training in Mental Health First Aid.

– A welfare team solely dedicated to the Islanders both during the show and after.

Aftercare

– Bespoke training on dealing with social media and advice on finance and adjusting to life back home.

– A minimum of eight therapy sessions will be provided to each Islander when they return home.

– Proactive contact with islanders for a period of 14 months up until the end of the next series. This means contact with the Islander will last for 14 months after the series in which they have appeared has ended, with additional help provided where applicable.

– We encourage Islanders to secure management to represent them after the show and manage them should they choose to take part in other TV shows, advertising campaigns or other public appearance opportunities. 

‘Girl’s girl’: Confessing that the girls’ behaviour made her feel ‘alone’, Lucie admitted that her time on the show improved as she got closer to ring girl, Maura Higgins, 28

During several episodes, Amy’s treatment of Lucie was questioned by fans after the stewardess complained that Lucie ‘stole her thunder’ by going exclusive with Joe on the same day Curtis Pritchard had asked her to be his ‘half-girlfriend.’ 

Amy has since left the villa after she chose her ‘mental health’ over the reality show in the aftermath of her devastating split from Curtis Pritchard.

According to reports, both Amy and Lucie confided in producers and the wellbeing teams during their heartbreaking times in Love Island.   

This year Love Island bosses overhauled their aftercare following backlash from former contestants after the tragic deaths of former contestants Sophie Gradon and Mike Thalassitis.

Producers will offer extensive care before, during and after the reality show, including increased therapy, social media training and even financial management.

Family of dead girl, four, not allowed to read full victim statement

Family of four-year-old girl killed by hit and run driver are not allowed to read out parts of their victim statement in court in case it upsets her killer

  • Violet-Grace Youens was hit by the driver of a stolen car at more than 80mph  
  • Father, Glenn, slammed criminal justice system for ‘letting his daughter down’  
  • Killer Aidan McAteer won’t have to hear details of Violet-Grace’s horrific injuries 

The grieving father of a four-year-old who was killed by the driver of a stolen car has slammed the criminal justice system for ‘letting his daughter down’. 

Violet-Grace Youens’s parents are not allowed to read out their full victim impact statement, including details of her horrific injuries, in court in case their daughter’s killer is upset by it. 

The four-year-old was knocked down by a black Ford car as she walked home with her grandmother in St Helens, Merseyside, in March 2017.

The grieving father of a four-year-old who was killed by the driver of a stolen car has slammed the criminal justice system for ‘letting his daughter down’ by not allowing him and his wife to read their victim impact statement in full 

Driver Aidan McAteer and his passenger, Dean Brennan, 27, then ignored her body while fleeing the scene before leaving the country. 

McAteer, then 23, pleaded guilty to causing Violet-Grace’s death by dangerous driving and was jailed for nine years and four months but could be eligible for early release. 

Violet-Grace’s father, Glenn Youens (pictured with her mother, Alicia), spoke out after a Merseyside MP said that his daughter’s killer won the right to have parts of her parents’ victim impact statement changed to spare his feelings at sentencing

Violet-Grace’s father, Glenn Youens, spoke out after a Merseyside MP said that his daughter’s killer won the right to have parts of her parents’ victim impact statement changed to spare his feelings at sentencing. 

While tending his daughter’s grave Mr Youens said: ‘We were not allowed to show our emotions in court or to read the statement in full because it would be too upsetting for him to hear it. Violet-Grace was only four-and-a-half years old when she was killed.

‘A lot of people don’t realise the victim’s family is not being put first. It’s as if we’re the ones who have done something wrong.’

‘We wanted McAteer to know from us what he did to Violet-Grace, but we weren’t allowed to because it wasn’t fair on him.

‘No-one I know feels justice has been served or that he’s had anything like enough time in prison.

‘I’m having to clean my daughter’s headstone while he’s counting the days till he gets home.’

On the day of the crash McAteer drove the stolen Fiesta ST3, which had cloned number plates, at 80mph in a 30mph area of St Helens. 

He went through two red lights before spinning out of control and hitting 55-year-old Angela French, who was carrying her granddaughter.

The car hit a lamppost and the defendants got out of the driver’s door and ran past Violet-Grace’s body to make their escape.

In May 2017 Liverpool Crown Court was told that Mrs Angela French, a former nurse, was facing the possibility of amputation and may never walk again. 

McAteer fled the country after knocking down Violet-Grace, but was arrested on his return and pleaded guilty at his trial – meaning his sentence was reduced by 25 per cent.

Mr Youens said: ‘I’d rather it had gone to trial if it meant he’d get so much as another day in prison.

‘What kind of society have we become that we accept this as normal?’

Mr Youens said: ‘A lot of people don’t realise the victim’s family is not being put first. It’s as if we’re the ones who have done something wrong.’ Pictured is the scene of the hit-and-run

Mr Youens revealed the sections of statement the family were unable to read out concerned graphic descriptions of the horrific injuries Violet-Grace suffered, of her last moments before her death, and how she looked before she was buried, which took place four weeks after her death.

He added: ‘McAteer should have had to hear that.’ 

McAteer, who admitted causing death by dangerous driving, was jailed for nine years and four months at Liverpool Crown Court.

His passenger Dean Brennan, who helped him to flee the country, was handed a sentence of six years and eight months.

In March a petition demanding a life sentence for those who cause death by dangerous driving hit 100,000 signatures on the anniversary of Violet-Grace’s death.


In March a petition demanding a life sentence for those who cause death by dangerous driving hit 100,000 signatures on the anniversary of Violet-Grace’s death. On Monday, MPs gathered in Parliament to debate the introduction of ‘Violet-Grace’s Law’, which would open up the possibility of life sentences for those convicted of causing death by dangerous driving

On Monday, MPs gathered in Parliament to debate the introduction of ‘Violet-Grace’s Law’, which would open up the possibility of life sentences for those convicted of causing death by dangerous driving.

Marie Rimmer, the MP for St Helens South and Whiston, told the debate that McAteer’s barrister successfully objected to the parents’ full statement.

She said: ‘The judge accepted this and the CPS barrister gave the parents a copy of their impact statement with parts they could not read out in open court highlighted.

‘The whole purpose of the victim impact statement is the impact on the victims and the survivors, not the defendant.

‘Guidance should be given to the judiciary that the overriding consideration is for the victim and their family, not whether the impact statement may upset the defendant.’

Girl, 2, dies four days after choking on a piece of bread at her babysitter’s house causing multiple organ failure

A TODDLER died in hospital four days after choking on a piece of bread at her babysitter's home.

The two-year-old never regained consciousness and suffered multiple organ failure after her brain was starved of oxygen, say cops in Malaysia.


The girl was being minded at her babysitter's house in the town of Selayang when tragedy struck last Monday.

Gombak Police chief Samsor Maarof told reporters: "At the emergency ward, the medical officer found a piece of bread during the resuscitation process."

Medics at Selayang Hospital told him the girl was unconscious when she was brought in.

Samsor confirmed that the tot, whose name has not been reported, died on on July 4, four days after being hospitalised.

He said a post-mortem report showed that the girl died of hypoxic-ischaemic encephalopathy (HIE) with multiple organ failure.

HIE is a brain dysfunction caused by a reduction in the supply of oxygen to the brain and other organs, compounded by low blood flow to vital organs.

It is unclear if the authorities are investigating the girl's death further.

The tot's death is the latest in a string of incidents involving babysitters.

In May, depraved Michael Wild, of Sheffield, was found guilty of murdering toddler Ella-Rose Clover.

The 22-month-old was bullied and battered while Wild pretended to "adore" her.

Ella-Rose sustained fatal injuries, including a blow to the abdomen.

Liverpool Crown Court was told that the girl died of internal bleeding and cardiac arrest "following the deliberate infliction of blows".

Love Island fans brand Maura ‘a girls’ girl’ and praise her reactions

‘All hail queen Maura!’ Love Island fans brand the Irish star ‘a girls’ girl’ as they go wild over her facial reactions and praise her instant empathy for Amy and Amber

The drama in Love Island reached fever-pitch on Wednesday night, with two long-standing female islanders left with their seemingly steady romances turned upside down at the recoupling. 

Amy Hart returned to the unsure arms of Curtis Pritchard whilst Amber Gill returned solo to find her former partner Michael Griffiths had dumped her for newbie Joanna Chimonides – but it was Maura Higgins’ facial reactions which stole the show.

Viewers took to social media in their droves to show support for ‘queen Maura’ as they went wild for her savage facial reactions to hearing that Curtis and Michael’s heads had been turned, and branded her a true ‘girls’ girl’ as she subtly attempted to check if her pal Amy was okay. 

All hail queen Maura! Viewers took to social media in their droves to show support for ‘queen Maura’ after her savage facial reactions and girl code display at the dramatic recoupling

Curtis sent fans into a spin during the tense episode as he decided to recouple with his ‘half-girlfriend’ Amy, just moments after doubting their relationship and considering to embark on a romance with model Jourdan Riane instead.

Amy was left on tender hooks after staying loyal to her ‘love’ returned to hear him ominously tell her they ‘need to have a talk later.’ 

Maura mouthed: ‘Are you okay?’ to her blonde pal, who was quite clearly fraught with emotion and unconfidently responded: ‘I think so.’ 

Love Island viewers were also left shocked as Michael paired up with newcomer Joanna on Tuesday’s dramatic recoupling, leaving his former partner Amber single after she remained faithful during her stint in Casa Amor.

Twitter was set alight with praise for Maura, with one person writing: ‘Absolutely love Maura’s raging face at Curtis and Michael.. that’s the kind of pal every girl needs.’

‘Maura is such a girls girl. That moment when you feel sick to the stomach cause you can actually feel the hurt for your friend,’ tweeted someone else.

‘Anyone else feel bad for judging Maura so badly to begin with? I do. I did. And now she’s making this year amazing. We need more girls like her in this world.’
