Amber Rose Is Pregnant

Amber Rose is reportedly pregnant. The model and her fiance Wiz Khalifa are thought to be expecting their first child in January 2013 and Amber wants to move up their wedding date to October to avoid getting married when she is heavily pregnant.
Rapper Wiz proposed to Kanye West’s former girlfriend earlier this year and although the pregnancy was a surprise, the pair are said to be thrilled about the baby and are already making a number of lifestyle changes to prepare.
A source said, “Amber and Wiz unexpectedly got pregnant, but they’re really happy to be starting a family together. Amber’s already had to make some big lifestyle changes, like not smoking cigarettes anymore. As a model she’s used to having a thin waist, so this is going to be an adjustment for her.”


Blue moon to appear in the sky on Friday

According to scientists, a blue moon will appear in the sky on Friday, August 31, 2012.
The blue moon refers not to colour, but to rarity. Blue moons aren’t actually blue-hued, although blue and even green moons have been seen before.
Blue moons are best known from the phrase “once in a blue moon,” meant to refer to something extremely rare. Two blue moons in a month aren’t all that unusual, however; they occur 2.7 years apart on average, though not with great regularity.
The last blue moon occurred on Dec. 31, 2009. That “New Year’s Eve Blue Moon” also coincided with a partial lunar eclipse for viewers in Europe, Asia, Africa and some parts of Alaska.
Reportedly, the moon will be at its fullest at 9:58 a.m. EDT (1358 GMT) on Friday. The next blue moon will occur on July 31, 2015.
