Prince Harry, Meghan Markle will not have a large family. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have only been married a hot minute and they're being bombarded with baby questions. It seems fans and supporters of the royal couple are more pumped for them to get pregnant than they are. While in Dublin on Wednesday, the couple ran into a woman who suggested to Prince Harry they get started, according to People. "My husband also has red hair and he gave me five children -- when are you and Meghan going to get going," quipped Elaine Adam-Stewart, who was in the crowd. Adam-Stewart told the publication, "He laughed and said 'Five children? Too many.'" The public pressure to have kids seems to be mounting for the pair, who wed in mid-May. But the couple said back in November, shortly after getting engaged, that they do want a family. "Of course," Harry told the BBC. "You know, one step at a time. Hopefully we'll start a family in the near future." Prince Harry, 33, and Meghan, 36, are already uncle and aunt to Prince William and Kate Middleton's three kids -- Prince George, 4, Princess Charlotte, 3, and 2-month-old Prince Louis. (PageSix)

Gloria and Emilio Estefan reveal key to successful, long-lasting marriage. Hollywood marriages don't always last, but Gloria and Emilio Estefan may have found the key to success after nearly 40 years of marriage. "Respect and love and, more than anything else, being Latino, you say, 'Yes, baby. Whatever you want,'" Emilio, 65, joked to Entertainment Tonight about their lengthy union. "That is such a crock, you know what?" Gloria, 60, quipped. "He makes me laugh every single day of my life." In early July, the couple retraced their steps and re-created their first kiss after 42 years together. The pair locked lips in the lobby of Novikov in Miami on July 4, an insider said. The pair apparently had a date there on Independence Day 1976. "Forever this will be my favorite reason to celebrate the 4th of July," Gloria shared in an Instagram caption of the smooch. Gloria and Emilio tied the knot on September 2, 1978, and welcomed two kids, Emily and Nayib, along the way. (TMZ)

Meghan Markle Admits She Misses Suits. Meghan Markle misses her old law firm. Since becoming engaged to Prince Harry, the former Hollywood actress bid farewell to her longtime lead role on Suits with the season seven finale, which coincidentally aired just weeks before her royal wedding. While the star has since assumed several new off-screen roles since walking down the aisle at St. George's Chapel -- wife, royal and Duchess of Sussex -- the 36-year-old Los Angeles native has not forgotten her beloved Hollywood character and the show that made her a star. She confirmed this while chatting with a woman from Dublin after a visit to the Irish Emigration Museum on the final day of her first royal visit to Ireland with Prince Harry on Wednesday. "I'm a fan of Suits and I said to her that I miss it and she said, 'so do I'," Fiona Moore recalled to reporters. "She seemed very relaxed and was joking and laughing." While the world has bid farewell to Zane, there still seem to be remnants of her in Markle's closet. The royal immediately made us think of her Suits character when she changed into a bespoke black Givenchy wool tuxedo suit for part of the day's events on Wednesday. Though that chapter of her life has closed, it sounds like Markle has impressed the public since assuming her newest duties as a duchess. "Meghan really took her time and looked us in the eye. She was really nice," Caroline Bates told the press. "She's a breath of fresh air in the royal family." "Meghan is a great role model for women," Heather Nicell echoed. "She is very likeable and relatable." Meanwhile, if Markle finds some downtime back home at Kensington Palace in front of the television, season eight of Suits premieres on July 18. (Eonline)

Will Arnett uses his 'Batman voice' to make his kids listen. Voice actor Will Arnett uses his "Batman voice" to discipline his kids, he says. "I don't yell at my kids when they're bad. I just don't. I don't believe in it. I will sometimes say, 'Guys, turn off the iPad,' and when they don't, I'm like, [in my Batman voice,] 'Hey, turn off the iPad.' And that usually works," he said at a "Teen Titans Go! to the Movies" event hosted by TheMoms.com's "Mamarazzi" show. Arnett has two sons, Archie and Abel, with Amy Poehler. (PageSix)

Candice Swanepoel Says She's ''Proud'' of Her Post-Baby Figure in Clap Back Against Critics. Candice Swanepoel is hitting back against the body shamers. The Victoria's Secret model gave birth to her second baby boy, Ariel, just 12 days ago, and she's already getting slack for hitting the beach in a bikini. Frustrated by the negative comments flooding her feed, Candice took to Instagram Stories on Wednesday to address the haters criticizing her post-pregnancy body. She preached, "This is me 12 days after having my son. If you have something bad to say about it... Check yourself." "Society can be so cruel to one another. Beauty standards are sometimes impossible for women these days. I am not ashamed to show my post-partum tummy, I am proud actually. I carried my son for nine months in there, I think I've earned the right to have a little tummy," the mother-of-two continued. And while the 29-year-old model may have graced the runways with her beauty, she reminded her followers, "We are normal people too, so let me enjoy the beach in peace please." "I don't have to hide my stomach just because people have unrealistic standards of women. We create life... What can you do?" concluded the South African native. Candice finished by saying, "Ladies, we are all in this together, be kind to each other." The proud mama, her fiance Hermann Nicoli and their eldest son Ana?an are enjoying the newest addition to the family. Swanepoel shared an adorable photo of the two brothers bonding, saying, "These are the most precious gifts life has given me. I am a lucky woman to be their mommy, to help guide them through this thing called life ... Now they will always have each other." Congratulations to the happy family! (Eonline)

Rebel Wilson back in Australian courts in defamation appeal. Rebel Wilson has applied to Australia's highest court to increase the comic actress's payout from a defamation case against a magazine publisher. The 38-year-old, best known for parts in the "Pitch Perfect" and "Bridesmaids" movies, was awarded in September an Australian record 4.6 million Australian dollars ($3.5 million) in damages. A Victoria state Supreme Court jury found that German publisher Bauer Media defamed her in a series of articles in 2015 claiming she lied about her age, the origin of her first name and her upbringing in Sydney. But three judges on the Court of Appeal last month upheld an appeal by Bauer and slashed Wilson's payout to AU$600,000 ($454,000). The appeal court ruled that the trial Judge John Dixon should not have compensated Wilson for film roles, including "Trolls" and "Kung Fu Panda 3," which she testified she had lost due to the damage the articles had done to her reputation. She was also ordered to pay 80 percent of Bauer's legal costs in mounting its appeal. Wilson lodged an application to the High Court late Wednesday to restore Dixon's ruling. The High Court registry made the court documents public on Thursday. The Court of Appeal overturned Dixon's finding that Wilson's career had been on an "upward trajectory" before the articles, instead saying the judge had given "a picture of the plaintiff's career trajectory that significantly overstated its success and ignored its hiccups." According to court documents, Wilson's lawyers will argue Dixon was correct, and that he was also correct in finding the articles caused a "huge international media firestorm" affecting Wilson's career and reputation. The lawyer will also argue the Court of Appeal was wrong in concluding Wilson needed to prove economic loss by showing a project had been canceled. A single High Court judge will hear Wilson's application at a date yet to be set. The judge would then either reject her appeal or rule that the full bench of seven judges will hear it. (PageSix)

Mira Sorvino just revealed a shockingly disgusting story about a casting director who she says scared the crap outta her for a role ... by gagging her with a condom when she was 16. She dropped the bombshell Wednesday during the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's "HFPA In Conversation" podcast. She says it was one of her very first auditions ... for a horror movie. Mira -- who's also accused Harvey Weinstein of sexually harassing her multiple times in the '90s -- said the casting director claimed to be getting her in the mood for the horror scene by tying her to a chair and bruising her arm. Then, the condom. She didn't name the casting director or the movie. Listen ... the Golden Globe and Oscar winner was clearly gobsmacked by how the "acting system" worked. (TMZ)

Henry Cavill apologizes for controversial 'rapist' comments about flirting. Henry Cavill might have taken his comments about the #MeToo movement a tad bit too far, so now he's walking back. The "Mission: Impossible Fallout" star told GQ Australia that the #MeToo movement has made him afraid to flirt with women, and his comments didn't sit well with the internet. "It's very difficult to do that if there are certain rules in place. Because then it's like: 'Well, I don't want to go up and talk to her, because I'm going to be called a rapist or something'. So you're like, 'Forget it, I'm going to call an ex-girlfriend instead, and then just go back to a relationship, which never really worked'," he told the magazine. "But it's way safer than casting myself into the fires of hell, because I'm someone in the public eye, and if I go and flirt with someone, then who knows what's going to happen?" Cavill's comments ushered severe backlash online, which prompted him to issue an apology. "Having seen the reaction to an article in particular about my feelings on dating and the #metoo movement, I just wanted to apologize for any confusion and misunderstanding that this may have created," he told Page Six in a statement on Thursday. "Insensitivity was absolutely not my intention. In light of this I would just like to clarify and confirm to all that I have always and will continue to hold women in the highest of regard, no matter the type of relationship, whether it be friendship, professional, or a significant other. "Never would I intend to disrespect in any way, shape or form," his statement continued. "This experience has taught me a valuable lesson as to the context and the nuance of editorial liberties. I look forward to clarifying my position in the future towards a subject that is so vitally important and in which I wholeheartedly support." (PageSix)

Charles Oakley is learning the hard way ... if you try to cheat a Vegas casino, you'll end up behind bars. TMZ Sports has learned ... the ex-NBA star was arrested at the Cosmopolitan on July 8 after allegedly trying to pull a fast one during a gambling session -- and it was all caught on video. Officials from the Nevada Gaming Board tell us Oakley "was suspected of adding to or reducing his wager on a gambling game after the outcome was known." Unclear what game he was playing at the time -- but one source with knowledge of the incident says Oak tried to pull back a $100 chip after he realized he was going to lose. FYI, Oakley reportedly made more than $46 mil during his NBA career. Oak was confronted about the incident -- and it was kicked over to a security team which reviewed the casino video footage ... confirming the alleged cheating. The 54-year-old was taken into custody at 5:30 PM and booked into Clark County Detention Center. Oak's gambling charge is serious business -- "to commit or attempt to commit a fraudulent act in a gaming establishment." He faces between 1 to 6 years in prison if convicted. A source close to Oakley tells us, "This is an insignificant matter that will be quickly resolved." (TMZ)

Charlamagne Tha God is furious over new reports suggesting he sexually assaulted a teenage girl more than 17 years ago since he was already cleared in a court of law ... and now he's lawyered up. "The Breakfast Club" star's 2001 case is back in the headlines -- with his accuser now claiming she wants "closure" nearly 2 decades after officials dropped the criminal sexual assault with a minor charge against Char. For the record, officials had always maintained that Charlamagne cooperated with the investigation and took a DNA test ... which did not produce any evidence that he had sexual contact with the girl. Charlamagne did, however, plead guilty to contributing to the delinquency of a minor due to underage kids (including the accuser) drinking alcohol at the party he threw. He was sentenced to probation. Now, Charlamagne -- real name Lenard McKelvey -- believes someone is drudging up the old case and fudging the facts in an effort to smear his name. He's lawyered up with famed celebrity bulldog attorney Marty Singer who tells TMZ, "More than seventeen years ago, Charlamagne was accused of a sexual assault. He never had sexual relations or any physical contact with the accuser and even provided DNA to prove it." "At the time of these claims, Charlamagne cooperated fully with authorities, and after the investigation, this charge against him was dropped." "Charlamagne has spoken about this many times over the years in public, including in his book. While Charlamagne has empathy for all sexual assault victims, he cannot take responsibility for a crime he did not commit." We're told Charlamagne is now considering his legal options and vows to vehemently protect his name and reputation. (TMZ)

'Bad Girls Club' Star Shannade Clermont Accused of Stealing a Dead Man's Identity. Bad Girls Club star Shannade Clermont was arrested for allegedly stealing a dead man's identity. The U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York confirmed Clermont's arrest in a statement on Wednesday, July 11. The former reality star, 24, was charged with wire fraud, access device fraud, and aggravated identity theft. According to the release, Clermont allegedly stole and used an unnamed man's debit cards after meeting him for a "prostitution date" in January 2017. The man was subsequently found dead in his apartment the following morning, the victim of a drug overdose. Clermont allegedly made more than $20,000 in fraudulent purchases on two of the man's stolen debit cards, which she found in his wallet while in his apartment. According to the U.S. Attorney's Office, she used the money to pay her rent and phone bills, buy flights and purchase thousands of dollars' worth of clothing and miscellaneous merchandise online. The Bad Girls Club alum also allegedly made a fake email account using the man's name and in April 2017, used the email to create a Western Union account in his name. Then, Clermont wired $1,000 to herself. "As alleged, Shannade Clermont, a former cast member of the 'Bad Girls Club,' lived up to her reality series reputation," U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said in a statement. "She allegedly stole debit card information from a man found dead -- the victim of a drug overdose -- in his Manhattan apartment and used his identity to make tens of thousands of dollars in fraudulent purchases. Thanks to the skilled investigative work of the NYPD, Clermont's new reality is federal prosecution for her alleged nefarious conduct." The Associated Press reported that Clermont was arrested at LaGuardia Airport on Wednesday and later released on $100,000 bail. Clermont appeared alongside her twin sister, Shannon Clermont, on the Oxygen reality series during season 14, which aired in 2015. In the years since, the two modeled for Kanye West's Yeezy and were featured in music videos. (USMagazine)
