Hilary Duff’s BF Matthew Koma is the Sweetest…

Hilary Duff has a sweet tooth. But not to worry, her boyfriend Matthew Koma, 31, came to rescue for his pregnant girlfriend.

Duff, 30, gushed over her baby daddy in an Instagram story on Tuesday, August 14 when Koma returned from a tireless task of finding his girlfriend Good & Plenty candy that she was craving. After visiting numerous stores Koma scored and returned with Duff’s candy of choice in hand.

The Younger actress quizzed her BF in her Instagram story asking, “How many stores did you go to?” Koma responded with six and Hilary replied, “Babe, I’m sorry.”

Duff referred to Matthew as ‘her dealer’ in the caption of her Insta story before adding, “Did he do good hunting down my pregnancy craving?” We think so, Hilary!  

The Lizzie McGuire alum revealed back in July that pregnancy is tough for her the second time around. Posting a picture of her bump via Instagram the actress wrote, “The b*obs are big the belly is big the body is big. Man.. pregnancy is hard.”

She went on the write, “Giving love to all mamas who make it look effortless… this journey is hard as hell and also incredibly special. Lovely to have a little life inside and to day dream of all the new adventures to come buuuut almost impossible to get my own shoes on… sick of getting up 9 times a night to pee and looking at this weird body in the mirror that is not my own at the moment.”

“Women are so bad a*s, this was just a note to remind myself and remind others how’s strong and beautiful you are! WE GOT THIS!” Duff added.

Even though the second time around has been tougher than expected for Duff her big sister Haylie, 33, thinks being a mother of two will be easier for her little sister. A new mom of two herself The Real Girl’s Kitchen Host thinks the transition for Hilary will go seamlessly a much different scenario than what she has experienced.

“Hilary’s set of troubles is going to be different,” the 33-year-old actress told Us Weekly. “Luca is old enough to help himself into bed, whereas Ryan can’t do those things. Luca is really loving his independence now. Hilary’s experience will be different [than mine.] With my second … I can’t take a nap or read a book. You still have to take care of another child.”

Jinger Duggar Vuolo Gives Birth Details, Reason She Chose Hospital Birth

Jinger Duggar Vuolo recently had her first little girl and now the reality star is talking all about the details. She also chose to have a hospital birth, which isn’t the way they usually do it in the Duggar family. People shared the details about what Jinger had to say about giving birth to her daughter Felicity.

On Monday’s episode of Counting On, the fans finally got to see Jinger have her baby girl. Jinger and Jeremy went and met with a midwife to talk about everything and make their birth plan. This is a pretty serious thing and they had to talk about all of the details.

Jinger explained why they were discussing all of this at this point in their pregnancy.

“We had an appointment last week and my doctor and midwife both thought that it would be best to get things rolling at this point just because my sisters have had such huge babies that they thought it’d be better if I kind of went closer to my due date. They want to induce me, so we’re taking all of our bags with us today and the baby car seat, and so it’s pretty crazy thinking that I’m just days away from being a mom and actually having the baby in my hands.”

Jinger Duggar Vuolo was really taking care of herself during this pregnancy. She was walking and doing squats. This had to help make the delivery a bit easier on her. Jinger also took herbs during her pregnancy.

As the fans have seen, some of the other Duggar girls have had some pretty big babies and had issues with delivery. They were trying to prevent Jinger Duggar from having these issues. They were actually doing all of these things so that Jinger could hopefully have her baby near her due date and not end up having her late, which would make her have a bigger baby. 

Jinger even went as far as to go to the hospital and use Pitocin, which is a drug that induces labor by causing or strengthening contractions. This way she would have her daughter on time. Every bit of this worked because it only took her 30 minutes of pushing to have her daughter, but she was in labor for 18 hours. Jinger even made the choice to get an epidural and slept during part of the labor, then woke up already dilated to a 10. 

Are you surprised that Jinger Duggar Vuolo decided to actually have a hospital birth? Let us know in the comments, and also don’t miss the new episodes of Counting On when they air on Monday nights on TLC.

What Does A City Look Like Where Women Live Alone?

What Does A City Look Like Where Women Live Alone?

The Brazilian community, consisting of some women, invited men to their permanent residence, who will be able to settle there only if they agree with the existing rules. The South Brazilian community of Noiva do Cordeiro, inhabited by more than 600 women, many of whom are between the ages of 20 and 35, with virtually no male members, is experiencing an acute shortage of candidates for future husbands. Nevertheless, women do not want to give up the strict rules by which they live and invite only those men who agree to accept them.

Matriarchy is the only system of government in this city. Women here control everything from agricultural activities to administrative management.

Men who agreed to settle in Noiva do Cordeiro will have to work outside the community and will be able to return home only on weekends. The same rule applies to young people who have reached the age of 18 years. Representatives of the stronger sex in this city are required to strictly observe the established rules. However, the main problem for men living here is that they have to leave their loved ones for a week: wives, brides, and girls.
“We want to meet gentlemen who are ready to leave their old life and become part of our culture,” explains one of the representatives of the Nelma Fernandes community. “But first they must accept what we say and start living by our rules,” she clarifies.

The city of Noiva do Cordeiro has a unique and interesting history. It was founded 120 years ago, by Maria Senhorinha de Lima, a woman expelled from her home and excommunicated from the Catholic Church for treason by a spouse for whom her parents issued her against her will. Gradually, the other disadvantaged women joined her, to create a society in which they could live according to their own laws.

However, in 1940 a Catholic priest married a young local resident and acquired a tacit authority in the city, began to establish strict laws, such as a ban: for hair cutting, drinking alcohol or using contraceptives. After his death in 1995, the representatives of the fair sex who inhabited the community, unanimously decided that they would no longer allow men to dictate to them what to do, and also rejected all religious dogmas “imposed by them by annoying men.”
