4. Khloé Kardashian, Tristan Thompson expecting baby number two via surrogate

Khloé Kardashian and her ex-boyfriend, Tristan Thompson, are expecting a baby via surrogate, says a source close to the pair. According to reports, the source relays that the reality star has been openly talking to friends about having the baby since before Christmas. If true, this will be the second child for Kardashian and her ex-boyfriend, who are already parents to 4-year-old daughter True.

Kardashian and the NBA player had talked about having a second baby before the latter was caught up in another cheating scandal in December 2021, and admitted to fathering a child with another woman. Reports say that the baby’s birth is “imminent,” while other sources report that the baby may have been born in the last day or two.

5. Dembele re-signs for Barcelona on a two-year deal as winger accepts pay cut to remain at Camp Nou

Barcelona has announced that they have re-signed Ousmane Dembele on a two-year contract that will keep him at Camp Nou through to 2024. The player’s agent and the Catalan club found an agreement last week to make the winger extend his stay, and it has now been made official. Dembele’s previous deal with Barcelona ended on June 30 and the World Cup winner was a free agent. However, Xavi still sees the France international as an instrumental player and pleaded with the board to tie him down to fresh terms.

Dembele has re-signed for Barca for the next two years, with his new contract not due to expire until June 30, 2024. The forward has also agreed to a massive pay cut that has reportedly seen his salary reduced by 40 percent. However, variables have also been included based on his participation and performance in the upcoming two seasons. If he manages to tick all the boxes he will receive a salary of around €10 million per year.
