Speaking candidly to her followers on Tuesday, Audrey revealed that she learned the devastating news on her daughter Ember’s 2nd birthday, but noted how she was taken aback at the way her toddler was so compassionate and loving amid her sorrow.⁣

“On Ember’s 2nd birthday we found out that our friend Jarrid took his own life💔 It was shocking and absolutely heartbreaking news. I couldn’t breathe when I found out and sobbed for hours😢,” she began the emotional post, which featured a sweet photo of Audrey holding Ember as she kissed her mom on the cheek.

“Ember saw my tears, ‘Sad mama?’ We sat on the couch together and she kept giving m pats on my shoulder and saying, ‘It’s ok mama, no more crying, happy mama?’ When I kept crying she would wipe away my tears and say, ‘blow mama, blow’ and she would show me how to blow just like I do with her when she’s upset. Cue more tears😭,⁣” Audrey continued.

Pregnant Shay Mitchell Gets Lap Dance as She Hosts Baby Shower at Strip Club

Pregnant Shay Mitchell Gets Lap Dance as She Hosts Baby Shower at Strip Club

Shay Mitchell celebrated the upcoming arrival of her unborn baby girl in a very unconventional way — she took a trip to a strip club!

On a new episode of her YouTube vlog series, Almost Ready, which documents her hilarious pregnancy journey, Mitchell, 32, revealed she decided to have a baby shower after originally not wanting one.

The clip, titled Not Your Average Baby Shower, opens up with Mitchell and a few of her friends, some of whom are also pregnant, walking into the Avalon Hollywood to see Magic Men Live!

The women all wore pink dresses in honor of Mitchell’s bundle of joy on the way.

“I’m so excited for this!” Mitchell says as she and her friends are escorted to their own reserved section, which is adorned with pink balloons that spell out “baby girl.” The star jokingly dubs the celebration “baby bachelorette.”

Mitchell and her crew — which included celebrity trainer Nichelle Hines, Arrow actress Elysia Rotaru and Hollywood facialist Shani Darden — are also given pink cupcakes and adorable baby bottles to sip on as they watch the show.

The women scream on in excitement as the men rip of their T-shirts on stage.

“Oh my God. I’m going into labor!” Mitchell says as she fans herself.

Meanwhile, her boyfriend Matte Babel is at home alone and has no idea where she is. “Hey babe how’s it going?” he texts her adding, “Do you guys want snacks?”

However, Mitchell is too preoccupied to reply.

After watching on from the audience, Mitchell is called on stage to receive a lap dance, to which she happily invites.

Following the shower, Mitchell travels home to Vancouver, Canada to see her mom and comes to the realization that she needs a doula.

Mitchell and Babel, 38, meet their doula later on in the episode, who reveals to them that they’re going to need a birth plan and explains to them why they should discuss whether or not Mitchell should give birth naturally or get an epidural.

Mitchell soon realizes that her birth plan won’t exactly go as she expected as her doctor tells her during a checkup that her baby is breached, meaning the baby’s feet are at the birth canal.Read more: https://people.com/parents/pregnant-shay-mitchell-hosts-baby-shower-strip-club-lap-dance/

Justin Trudeau Admits He Wore Brownface at Arabian Nights Party After Photo Surfaces

Justin Trudeau Admits He Wore Brownface at Arabian Nights Party After Photo Surfaces

Justin Trudeau is taking blame after an old photo recently surfaced showing him in brownface.

The Canadian prime minister addressed the incident during a press conference on Wednesday, just hours after a photograph obtained by TIME was released, showing Trudeau with dark paint over his face, neck and hands as he wore a white robe and turban.

A then-29-year-old Trudeau and the four women surrounding him were attending an “Arabian Nights”-themed party at West Point Grey Academy — the private co-ed day school where he taught — when the photo was snapped for the 2000 to 2001 yearbook, according to TIME.

While speaking to reporters at the press conference, Trudeau, 47, confirmed that he was the one pictured in the photograph and expressed remorse for his decision to wear brownface at the party.

“I attended an end of year gala where the theme was Arabian nights. I dressed up in an Aladdin costume and put makeup on,” he said, according to The Washington Post. “I shouldn’t have done that. I should have known better, but I didn’t, and I’m really sorry.”

A representative for Trudeau did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

The photo is just one of six images spread across a dark yearbook page to commemorate the “gala dinner 2001”, but despite its theme, only some guests were dressed up and Trudeau appears to be the only one that covered his skin in brown paint.

TIME said they initially obtained a copy of the yearbook, titled The View, earlier this month from Michael Adamson — a businessman who also had connections to the West Point Grey Academy in Vancouver.

Though Adamson explained that he did not attend the party, he told the outlet that multiple faculty members, administrators and parents were there. After coming across the photograph in July, he said he felt it was necessary to be publicized today.

In response to the photo, Zita Astravas, the media relations spokesperson from Trudeau’s Liberal Party of Canada, confirmed the prime minister was pictured in the image and claimed that he was dressing up as a character from Disney’s Aladdin.

“It was a photo taken while he was teaching in Vancouver, at the s

Julianne Hough Debuts First New Song in Nearly a Decade During Americas Got Talent Finale

Julianne Hough Debuts First New Song in Nearly a Decade During Americas Got Talent Finale

The season finale of America’s Got Talent is here — and so is new music from judge Julianne Hough!

During the show’s season 14 finale on Wednesday night, the star debuted her first new song in nearly a decade with a high-energy performance. The debut of the single, titled “Transform,” was accompanied by a dance performance from season 14 finalist V. Unbeatable.

“I couldn’t imagine a better stage,” Hough, 31, told reporters ahead of the finale. “This is where people’s lives begin, and I feel like I’m just getting started with my music again.”

Before Wednesday, Hough hadn’t released a new single since 2010, when she came out with her track, “Is That So Wrong.” Two years prior, in 2008, Hough released her self-titled debut album.

“When Mandy said she was releasing new music after 10 years I literally DM’d her and said ‘Wait, what?! I am too! This is so cool!’ ” Hough said of Moore, who released her new single, “When I Wasn’t Watching,” on Tuesday.

“To be able to release new music after 10 years of feeling like I suppressed it and pushed it away to find it again in my most creative and authentic voice is super empowering,” Hough shared. “As much as I want people to hear it and I want to share it, it really was a love note to myself. Being connected back to the artist rather the performer of who I am. I’m really excited.”

Ahead of debuting her new song on AGT, Hough teased her performance on Instagram, writing alongside a photo of herself laying on the ground and decked out in gold, “Getting grounded, literally. Can’t wait to perform tonight on the #AGTFinale! @agt.”
