Cincinnati Zoo Announces Hippo Bibi is Pregnant, Fiona Will Be A Sister!!!

It’s official — Fiona, the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden’s 5-year-old hippo, is going to be a big sister. “The hippo team is excited and also nervous,” Eric Byrd, manager of the zoo’s Africa team, said in a release. “As most people know, Bibi’s first baby, Fiona, was born six weeks premature and wouldn’t have survived without the intervention of her human caregivers. We are hoping for a full-term pregnancy and will be doing everything we can to support Bibi.” The zoo welcomed 18-year-old Tucker from the San Francisco Zoo last September, who quickly became “enamored” with 23-year-old Bibi, Cincinnati Zoo said. Bibi is expected to give birth later this summer.

“I lost so much weight to go on my Maui trip only to gain it back … I thought “Geez … what happened to my stomach ???” My husband said “No you’re food pregnant silly !!!” So I got a pregnancy test … and uhhhhh well … I am having a baby … 4 days later I got a little more food pregnant It’s growing !!! If 2 are in there … I might just loose it … I obviously won’t be going out as much due to the paps getting their money shot of me like they unfortunately already have … it’s hard because when I was pregnant I had perinatal depression … I have to say it is absolutely horrible … women didn’t talk about it back then … some people considered it dangerous if a woman complained like that with a baby inside her … but now women talk about it everyday … thank Jesus we don’t have to keep that pain a reserved proper secret … This time I will be doing yoga every day !!! Spreading lots of joy and love !!!” Spears wrote on Instagram.

Spirit Halloween, the iconic costume and prop store with 1,425 locations across North America, has teamed with Strike Back Studios and Hideout Pictures for a feature-length family movie called Spirit Halloween. It’s billed as a family/childrens’ adventure movie, starring Back To The Future’s Christopher Lloyd and She’s All That star Rachael Leigh Cook, as well as some less-recognizable faces. “When a new Spirit Halloween store appears in a deserted strip mall, three middle-school friends who think they’ve outgrown trick-or-treating make a dare to spend the night locked inside the store Halloween night,” reads the official logline for the movie. “But they soon find out that the store is haunted by an angry evil spirit who has possessed the creepy animatronic characters. The kids embark on a thrilling and spooky adventure in order to survive the night and avoid becoming possessed themselves.” Filming on Spirit Halloween has already wrapped, with the production aiming for an October 2022 release.

Kurt Cobain’s Iconic Guitar & Dodge Dart Going To Auction

Several items that once belonged to Kurt Cobain are going up for auction next month. Two of the most prized items are the guitar that the late Nirvana frontman plays in the iconic “Smells Like Teen Spirit” video, and his 1965 Dodge Dart. The guitar is a left-handed 1969 Fender Mustang with a starting estimate of $600,000 to $800,000. In his last interview with Guitar World, Cobain once said, “I’m left-handed, and it’s not very easy to find reasonably priced, high-quality left-handed guitars. But out of all the guitars in the whole world, the Fender Mustang is my favorite. I’ve only owned two of them.” The 1965 Dodge Dart is only known surviving car that was owned and driven by Cobain. Despite already having achieved success, Cobain didn’t want a fancy brand-new car, so he purchased the Dodge Dart with Courtney Love, much to her horror. It’s expected to fetch around $400,000 to $600,000. Other Cobain items up for sale include his painting of Michael Jackson, as well as a skateboard featuring Cobain’s drawings.
