The devastation of losing her newborn baby has thrust model and wife of singer, John Legend into deep sadness. The often outspoken mother of what would have been three children, suffered the loss of her son on Wednesday. She had announced her pregnancy in August with speculation that the baby would have been due in February 2021.
Photos posted to social media, where she had been documenting her pregnancy for fans around the world to see, showed the pain felt by the grieving mother.
Teigen was taken to hospital on Sunday due to excessive bleeding but had reassured fans that she and the baby were healthy. In her latest post, however, she revealed that “we were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed”.
Teigen thanked her followers for their “positive energy, thoughts and prayers” and expressed gratitude for the “amazing” life she enjoyed with her family.
“But everyday can’t be full of sunshine. On the darkest of days, we will grieve, we will cry our eyes out. But we will hug and love each other harder and get through it.” – Chrissy Teigen
Pan, J’ouvert and Parade of the Bands. It’s On and Poppin in Miami This Weekend!
It’s been a tough year- matter of fact, it’s been a tumultuous two years; but, there’s been a silver lining – a greater appreciation among Caribbean people for the culture of their native lands. For Trinbagonians around the world, Carnival’s elements have been missed. At home in Trinidad and Tobago where the Mecca festival was missed in 2021, and no word yet on whether there will be anything resembling carnival in 2022, culture stakeholders remain hopeful. In Miami however, fetters, pan lovers, Masqueraders, DJs and performers lead the way into the next season of possibilities, this coming weekend.
On Friday, the Miami Carnival Panorama kicks off at 5pm at the Miami- Dade County Fairgrounds, which will play host to all of this coming weekend’s events, including the anticipated Miami Carnival Parade of Bands on Sunday, October 10th. That starts at 12noon and follows the J’ouvert excitement which starts at 7am and goes until 3pm! Now that is vibes!
On Friday however, bands like Melo Groove, Metro Steel Orchestra, Phase III Pan Stars, Resurrection Steel and Sticks’ n’ Tones Steel band compete before what is expected to be an upbeat crowd of pan aficionados and those new to the sweet sound of steel. There will also be guest performances by the Trinidad All-Stars Steel Orchestra & Newtown Playboys Steel Symphony.

“We Are a Small, But Proud Country.” – TT Health Minister To Trevor Noah.
Trinidad and Tobago’s Health Minister is today being hailed a hero for his professional execution of yesterday’s interview on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.
During the virtual interview with the South Africa born host, Deyalsingh is heard repeating, “Trinidad is a small but proud country.”
The interview was seen as necessary by the team at The Daily Show, according to Noah, to debunk rapper, Nicki Minaj’s claim that someone in Trinidad had experienced testicular swelling after being vaccinated for COVID-19. Introducing the minister to his global audience with a bit of humor and some reference to Trinidad and Tobago’s carnival culture, Noah allowed the minister to deliver his Ministry’s statistics. Minister Deyalsingh noted that some 1 million vaccine doses have been administered in a population of 1.3 million. “We are confident that we have brought WHO approved vaccines to Trinidad and Tobago,” he said, before adding, “of those 1 million doses of vaccines we have administered, there have been only been 5 cases of adverse events, all reported to WHO.” Minister Deyalsingh further stated, “none of them includes testicular swelling.”
In the comments beneath the Daily Show video on YouTube, viewers congratulated the country’s minister on a job well done. One person, Constance Robertson said, “This Jamaican thanks the TT Minister of Health for repping the entire Caribbean.”
