1. Chrissy Teigen just confirmed she’s pregnant with her third child
Chrissy Teigen gave her fans a glimpse of her budding baby bump after revealing she is pregnant with her and John Legend’s third child. “Look at this third baby s–t,” Chrissy Teigen, 34, on Thursday, August 13, captioned a Twitter video of herself cradling her baby bump. “What the? Oh, my God.”
In the social media upload, the Cravings author rocked an unbuttoned black jacket and matching leggings.
The media confirmed hours earlier that Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, 41, are expecting their third child after welcoming daughter Luna, 4, and son Miles, 2, in 2016 and 2018, respectively. Teigen debuted her baby bump in Legend’s “Wild” music video, holding her stomach as the camera zoomed in.
2. Prof Opoku-Agyemang embarks on a 10-day campaign tour in Ghana
The Vice-Presidential Candidate of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang, will from Friday, August 14, 2020, embark on a 10-day campaign tour of the Upper East, North East, Northern, Bono, and Ahafo Regions. The tour comes on the heels of her recent courtesy calls on traditional authorities, religious leaders, and other key stakeholders in the Central and Greater-Accra Regions.
A statement issued by her office said Prof Opoku-Agyemang was “delighted to begin official campaign activities with our brothers and sisters from these parts of our country.”
3. Zweli Mkhize says lockdown decision ‘not made yet’ in South Africa
Health Minister, Zweli Mkhize has had to play the role of mediator between the government and the public on Friday, as citizens remain desperate to learn if Level 2 restrictions will be introduced this weekend. Mkhize has been keeping his cards close to his chest throughout the week.
When pressed about reaching a decision on moving forward to the next Alert Phase, the health minister solemnly stated that “no decisions have been made yet.” But Zweli Mkhize did at least leave the door open for the optimists. He gave a nod to the declining number of positive cases in the country, and said that the surge of COVID-19 infections is coming to an end.
4. US Postal Service warns of risk of delay for mail-in votes
The US Postal Service (USPS) has warned one state that its election laws might mean that millions of mail-in votes go uncounted in November’s election. In a letter to Pennsylvania’s top official overseeing the vote, the USPS said that a one-week turnaround for mail-in ballots may not be possible.
It comes amid a major slowdown in mail deliveries which critics say is due to policies enacted by a Donald Trump appointee. A record number of people are expected to vote by mail due to the pandemic.
Trump has repeatedly said that mail-in ballots will give a boost to his rival Democrat Joe Biden, and lead to voting fraud. Experts say the mail-in voting system – which is used by the American military and by Trump himself – is safe from tampering.
5. Willian: Arsenal sign former Chelsea midfielder on a free transfer
Arsenal has signed Brazil midfielder Willian on a three-year deal after the 32-year-old’s contract with Chelsea expired. The Blues had offered the player a new deal but were unwilling to match what the Gunners had on the table.
“I believe he’s a player that can really make a difference for us,” said Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta. “We had a clear intention to strengthen in the attacking midfielder and the winger positions.”
Willian made 339 appearances for Chelsea after signing from Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala for £30m in 2013. He won five major honors with the Blues, including two Premier League titles and the Europa League, and was voted the club’s players’ player of the year twice.
