Prince Harry and Meghan Markle enjoy 'lazy days together' in London
For Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, 2017 has been one big lovefest so far. After the couple traveled to Norway over New Year's to see the Northern Lights, they headed back to London, where they've been "chilling and enjoying lazy days together" and spending time with members of the royal family, a source tells Us Weekly. Last week, Meghan met Duchess Kate and Princess Charlotte at Kensington Palace, where she and Harry are reportedly occupying Nottingham cottage. "Meghan's been on cloud nine since coming back from Norway," said a source. "Norway was amazing. It was the first time they had done something like this together, and they definitely want to go on more adventure trips. … They're so in love." Meghan's preparing for a two-week trip to India with World Vision, a humanitarian aid group, while Harry has caught up with his brother and sister-in-law for appearances such as their recent Heads Together press launch. But for the most part, they seem to be focused on enjoying the extended vacation time together — and getting more serious about the relationship. "I can see them engaged by the spring," said a source close to Harry. "He's head over heels."

Lady Gaga has some dangerous ideas for her Super Bowl show
When Lady Gaga performs at the Super Bowl Halftime Show in Houston on Feb. 5, she's likely to have a whole lot of people concerned for her safety. According to Page Six, Lady G. wants to sing while perched on the retractable, see-through dome roof of NRG Stadium — a move that would be so dangerous and complicated from a tech standpoint it has her team worried, according to insiders. Despite the potential issues, Gaga is reportedly "pushing to do it. One source close to the production arrangements says "up multiple plans about how to safely get her on the roof," are in the works and one of those involves "potentially [cutting] a hole in the ceiling of the dome." Other ideas reportedly include airlifting Gaga onto the roof and pretaping the roof part of the performance so that more precautions can be taken than would be possible in a live performance situation. Either way, says a source, "trying to figure out insurance for it is crazy."
Selena Gomez spotted listening to The Weeknd's 'Starboy'
Whether she's using The Weeknd or not, Selena Gomez certainly seems to be feeling his music. After a report surfaced in which insiders said Justin Bieber thinks his ex had ulterior motives for her recent makeout sesh with The Weeknd, JustJared spotted her chatting with friends in los Angeles with her iPhone screen on full display. She was streaming music at the time. The track? "Starboy," by The Weeknd.
Kerry Washington talks pregnancy and 'Scandal' on 'Ellen'
A mom has a million hopes and dreams for her child. But there's one hope that comes first, especially for a mother like Kerry Washington who opted not to find out the gender of her second baby while she was pregnant. "I had no idea what I was having," the "Scandal" star told Ellen DeGeneres (via E! News) this week. "I said I hoped it was human. That turned out to be right. It's a human boy." Phew. Unlike Kerry's first child, her son Caleb didn't appear on the "Scandal" set in utero. This time, the show took a break rather than hiding Kerry's belly behind shapeless clothing and lots of random objects. That said, she did take advantage of the old hiding-behind-stuff trick while she got her body back to normal. "The first five episodes you'll see me standing behind some flowers and then I might stand behind flowers just for fun so it doesn't stop immediately, but I don't need to anymore," she said.
Amanda Seyfried can't wait to get married and welcome her first child
No cold feet here. In a new cover story for Vogue Australia, Amanda Seyfried dishes on her upcoming wedding and the prospect of welcoming her first child with her fiance, Thomas Sadoski. "I've never been excited by anything more in my life. And ready," she says (via E! News). Amanda also seems like the least likely candidate for bridezilla behavior. "I don't want to be the center of attention," she says. "I get to go to premieres and get dressed up all the time. I went to the Met Gala last year in a wedding gown designed by Riccardo Tisci; I've played a bride a billion times." The 31-year-old actress announced she was engaged to her former "The Way We Were" costar in September; she confirmed she was pregnant in November.
Ciara: Abstinence helped build a strong relationship
If she had to do it over again, Ciara would probably commit to abstinence before marriage with Russell Wilson, whom she wed in July in England. "I really believe that when you focus on a friendship, you have the opportunity to build a strong foundation for a relationship — and once you know you're really great friends and you're what we call 'equally yoked,' where you share the same values or the same outlook on life, it kind of sets the tone," she says in the new issue of Cosmopolitan South Africa (via the Daily Mail). "Knowing that you'll always have the friendship and that you can always go back to it is very important, and very powerful." The singer, who has a son with her ex, Future, also admitted it took time to see relationships the way she does now. "Here's how it works," she says. "We women think with our hearts and with our minds. When we see a guy, we envision what he's like and whether this could be something special. Guys see us from an exterior point of view — that's something I learned along the way as a woman. You shouldn't feel like you have to give your body away to get someone to like you. It's important to have a friendship. It's important to have standards. Last fall, Ciara confirmed she and her Seattle Seahawks star husband are expecting their first child.
