Kym Johnson welcomes twins
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Kym Johnson and Robert Herjavec have something to dance about.
The former “Dancing with the Stars” partners have welcomed twins into the world.
Johnson posted on Instagram that their “little angels” were born on Monday morning. The 41-year-old says she never thought her heart could feel so full.
The couple had previously announced they were expecting a boy and a girl. They did not reveal their names.
Herjavec is the father of three children from a previous marriage. The 55-year-old businessman appears on “Shark Tank.”
Funeral held Bruno Sammartino
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Former professional wrestling champion Bruno Sammartino has been laid to rest in Pennsylvania, where he was remembered as one of the sport’s good guys.
Sammartino fled the Nazis from Italy as a child and built a career beating a string of bad guys in the 1960s and 1970s. He was the World Wide Wrestling Federation champion for more than 11 years over two title runs. He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2013.
Sammartino was buried on Monday outside Pittsburgh. Mourners, including WWE chairman Vince McMahon, remembered Sammartino’s humility and work ethic, even as he ascended the wrestling ranks. The Rev. John Rushofsky called him “a man of honesty and integrity.”
Sammartino died last week after a two-month hospitalization. He was 82.
Dwayne Johnson wife gives birth
NEW YORK (AP) — The Rock has his third Rockette.
Dwayne Johnson took to Instagram on Monday to show off his chest full of tattoos and his new baby girl in a hospital skin-to-skin contact moment.
“Blessed and proud to bring another strong girl into this world,” he wrote. “Tiana Gia Johnson came into this world like a force of nature and Mama @laurenhashianofficial labored and delivered like a true rockstar.”
It’s the second child and second girl with Hashian. The actor also has a 16-year-old daughter with former wife Dany Garcia.
“I was raised and surrounded by strong, loving women all my life, but after participating in baby Tia’s delivery, it’s hard to express the new level of love, respect and admiration I have for @laurenhashianofficial and all mamas and women out there,” Johnson wrote.
He urged all dads to participate in the births of their children, offering support during labor and delivery. And he made a promise to his new baby that, “you have my word, I’ll love, protect, guide and make ya laugh for the rest of my life. Your crazy dad has many responsibilities and wears many hats in this big ol’ world, but being your dad will always be the one I’m most proud to wear.”
