1. John Legend and Chrissy Teigen lose baby after hospitalization
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend have lost their third baby following weeks of pregnancy complications that led to Chrissy being hospitalized. John Legend and Chrissy Teigen announced the sad news in a post on Chrissy’s Instagram account on Wednesday night, adding that they had named the baby Jack.
“We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before,” Chrissy wrote alongside a series of photos of the couple in hospital. “We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusions,” she said. “It just wasn’t enough.”
John also addressed the news, retweeting Chrissy’s note alongside a message of love for their son.
Our condolences go out to the family during this trying period.

The National Identification Authority (NIA) has completed the nationwide mass registration and the mop-up exercises with the issuance of 13,848,697 cards to Ghanaians, home and abroad, as well as foreign nationals with residence permits in Ghana. The exercise, which began in the Greater Accra Region on April 29, 2019, saw a total enrolment of 15,549,242, out of which 14,689,672 cards were printed.
However, the number of cards that have been printed but not issued and print backlog amount to 840,974 and 859,570, respectively. The number of people who registered with required documents, such as passports and birth certificates, stood at 3,306,799, while those who registered through vouching by oath were 12,191,654. The total enrolment is made up of 8,268,429 females and 7,280,813 males.
3. US election 2020: Facebook bans more political ads
Days after banning ads prematurely declaring victory in the presidential election, Facebook has now banned those questioning the US electoral process. Ads seeking to “delegitimize any lawful method or process of voting” will be banned, amid concerns some may claim postal voting could encourage fraud.
It has also removed Trump-sponsored ads claiming accepting refugees would increase the risk of COVID-19. They showed opponent Joe Biden talking about the US border and asylum seekers. And more than 38 versions were seen by hundreds of thousands of people before they were removed.
4. Nasty C scores a BET Hip Hop Awards nomination
South African hip hop sensation Nasty C has nabbed a BET Hip Hop Awards 2020 nomination. BET has announced the nominees for the 15th annual Hip Hop Awards, honoring the past year in hip hop music across 17 categories.
Best International Flow is a category that will recognize artists from around the world, with nominees from France, South Africa, Kenya, UK, and for the first time ever, a nominee from Brazil.
This year’s nominees for the Best International Flow category is South African rapper Nasty C alongside Kenyan hip hop artist Khaligraph Jones. This is Nasty C’s second nomination, having been previously recognized in the same category in 2019.
5. England squad: Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Bukayo Saka, and Harvey Barnes earn first senior call-ups
Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Bukayo Saka, and Harvey Barnes have been handed their first senior England call-ups, while Mason Greenwood and Phil Foden have been dropped. After hitting a career-best 15 goals last term, Calvert-Lewin’s impressive start to the new campaign has propelled Everton to three wins from three in the Premier League.
Saka, 19, has been featured just three times for Arsenal during this campaign but broke into the first-team and impressed while playing at full-back for the Gunners last season. Barnes meanwhile has helped Leicester to the top of the early Premier League table, with the 22-year-old scoring in the Foxes’ win over Burnley.
As expected, Southgate has left out Greenwood and Foden after the pair were sent home from Iceland last month for breaching coronavirus protocols by meeting up with two women inside the public areas of the team hotel.
