Is Chris Brown Having A Son?

Is Chris Brown having another baby? According to sources close to the entertainer, the answer is yes.

TMZ reports the 30-year-old singer will welcome his newest bundle of joy in the fall with ex-girlfriend Ammika Harris, who is allegedly pregnant with a boy. This will be Harris' first child and Brown's first boy. The Indigo artist is already a proud papa to his 5-year-old daughter Royalty who he had with Nia Guzman.

While Harris and Brown aren't together, the two are reportedly co-existing well and appear to have a handle on their forthcoming co-parenting.

News the former couple was expecting made its way to the Internet in June. However, fans raised a suspicious digital eyebrow when Brown commented on one of Harris' photos a month prior.

"Yup," he wrote. "BM bad."

BM being short-hand for "baby mama."

No word on the exact due date or what names the two have in mind, but as soon as we know you'll know.

Georgia Mom Posts Tender Photos Of Her Children Before Allegedly Killing Them And Herself

A Georgia woman posted a heartwarming picture of her and her children before allegedly shooting them to death and then turning the gun on herself.

According to The New York Daily News, Cobb County Police discovered three bodies inside a townhome home while conducting a welfare check Wednesday evening. Marsha Edwards, 58, reportedly shot and killed her 20-year-old daughter Erin Edwards and her 24-year-old son Christopher Edwards before taking her own life.

Erin, a rising senior at Boston University, interned with NBC 4 New York this past summer and was said to have had "Infectious enthusiasm and a true passion for journalism, and even more important was [a] genuinely good and kind person who will be sorely missed by everyone at NBC New York."

Christopher worked in the Atlanta mayor's office as a digital content manager. According to Edwards Instagram posts, she spent the summer with her children, going to Miami with her son and Italy with her daughter.

“I’ve had the best summer, first with Chris in Miami, and Erin in Italy. I could not ask for better children,” Marsha posted Wednesday.

A Michigan City Council Candidate Wants To Keep A Town As White As Possible

A Michigan city council candidate merited shock and ire when she said she wants to keep a local town as white as possible. Jean Cramer made headlines over the weekend when she was posed a question by a moderator on diversifying Marysville, which is reportedly 95% white.

"My suggestion, recommendation: Keep Marysville a white community as much as possible," Cramer said.

Her statement was recorded by WPHM radio in which gasps can be heard from those in attendance and fellow candidates. However, the reactions didn't stop Cramer from doubling down on her statement.

"Seriously, in other words, no foreign-born, no foreign people because of what, in our past, we've experienced it's better to have ... simply American-born. Put it that way and no foreigners. No."

The 67-year-old was asked by a Port Huron Times Herald reporter to respond to criticisms from Mayor Kathy Hayman who has biracial grandchildren and a black son-in-law.  Cramer, however, didn't back down and went as far as to call Hayman's family "wrong."

"How can I put this? What Kathy Hayman doesn't know is that her family is in the wrong," she said. "(A) husband and wife need to be the same race. Same thing with kids. That's how it's been from the beginning of, how can I say, when God created the heaven and the earth. He created Adam and Eve at the same time. But as far as me being against blacks, no I'm not," Cramer said.

It took Hayman a bit to get her bearings, but she later responded to Cramer insensitive comments.

"My son-in-law is a black man and I have biracial grandchildren," Hayman continued. "And I take this very personally what you've said, and I know that there's nothing I can say that's going to change your mind. ... We just need to have more kindness -- that's it."

Another candidate, Mike Deising, was just as flabbergasted as the mayor and other candidates.

"Just checking the calendar here and making sure it's still 2019," Deising said. "Yeah, I thought we covered civil rights about 50 years ago."
