It is still unclear whether the couple’s newborn is a boy or girl, but they are beaming with joy. The couple’s close friends and fans filled Babe’s Instagram comments with congratulatory messages.
4. Botswana diamond could be the world’s third-largest
A diamond believed to be the third-largest ever found has been put on display in Botswana. The stone – weighing 1,098 carats – was shown to President Mokgweetsi Masisi two weeks after the diamond firm, Debswana, unearthed it. The huge gem is only slightly less heavy than the world’s second-largest diamond, also found in Botswana in 2015. Botswana is Africa’s largest producer of diamonds.
An estimate of the stone’s potential cost has not yet been released, but in 2017, the second-largest diamond ever found, Lesedi La Rona, was sold for $53m (£39.5m). The biggest diamond ever discovered was the 3,106-carat Cullinan Diamond found in South Africa in 1905.
5. Sergio Ramos: Spain defender set to leave Real Madrid after 16 years
Sergio Ramos is set to leave Real Madrid after the club announced a “farewell” news conference for their long-serving captain on Thursday. Ramos, 35, has won five La Liga titles and four Champions Leagues in a glittering Real career after joining from boyhood club Sevilla in 2005.
The club says they will hold the news conference as an “institutional act of tribute and farewell. ” Ramos’ contract expires at the end of June. He was unable to agree on a new deal with the club and will become a free agent a little more than a month after being left out of Luis Enrique’s Spain squad for Euro 2020.
