A TRAVELLER mum has thrown her 10-year-old daughter a party so that she can meet her future husband. Lee Ann, from Philadelphia, brought shame upon her family when she married non-traveller Joe and is now trying to get back in their good books with daughter Mary. The mum is keen for her daughter to find a “good gypsy boy” to settle down with, but Mary is torn between what her mum and dad want for her. Speaking on TLC’s Gypsy Brides US, Mary says: “They argue about it a lot. “My mum wants me to clean and have children and take care of them. My dad wants me to become a writer. “I want to have both, I don’t just want to have one.” And when the subject of Mary’s upcoming tenth birthday party is raised, it isn’t long before Lee Ann and Joe butt heads.

A "treasured" keepsake box that once belonged to Charles Darwin's daughters has been donated to English Heritage and will go on show later this year. The Victorian red leather box contains shells gathered by Darwin on his famous Beagle voyage, where his observations fostered the ideas that led him to develop his theory of evolution. Darwin's descendants have donated the red leather box and its "treasures" to English Heritage, which will display the object at what was Darwin's home - Down House, in Kent. The naturalist and his wife Emma gave the box to their daughters, who, starting with the eldest, Annie, filled it with family mementos. When Annie died, aged 10 in 1851, the box passed to her sister Henrietta, otherwise known as Etty.

ELLIE Goulding surprised fans yesterday when she revealed she was seven months pregnant with her first child. The singer, who is married to Caspar Jopling , had given no indication until then that the couple would soon become parents. Fitness fan Ellie, 34, cleverly drip fed her social media followers a stream of throwbacks of her working out and looking trim. The style-savvy star also struck cool poses in fashionable oversized clothing in more recent snaps. She rocked an eye-catching Stella McCartney dress shirt in October, while a month later she again covered her stomach in an oversized shirt.

DEAR DEIDRE: I’M racked with guilt as I did something so stupid – I slept with my ex – when I have a new girlfriend who I’ve completely fallen for. What is wrong with me? My ex is the mother of my daughter and when she ended things with me, I was devastated for months. It all came out of the blue and I pestered her to see me but she refused.

I had my family to support me but after months of feeling rotten, I met somebody new online. She’s wonderful. She’s 31 and helped me get over the trauma of a bad break up.

I … [Read more...] about I slept with my ex even though I have a girlfriend and I feel so guilty
