Michael Bublé and his wife Luisana have announced they're expecting their second child - sharing the news in a cute video post.
Their son, who's nearly 2, is seen pointing to his mum's stomach, saying "baby", as the singer asks "Who's that in there?".
Take a look!

This morning I'd like to say a big "Thank you" to everyone at FORAS in Stow Bridge. As you'll see and hear below back in November they offered to help the staff and pupils of Highgate School in King's Lynn after their gardens were vandalised. Now that the garden has had time to grow and be cared for again they have delivered there generous offer.
Please read the post below to remind yourself of the events that led to them getting involved.
FROM NOVEMBER 2014
The pictures below show the devastation left behind after calous, mindless vandals thought it would be ‘fun’ to wreck a loved and cared for play area & green at Highgate Infant School in King’s Lynn. There are no words as to why anyone would do this, let alone to a group of very young children who have created the garden themselves, a group of children who were obviously very proud of what they had achieved.
The destruction took place over Half Term and you can only imagine how the teachers and pupils felt on discovering the mess after their holiday.
I know the children are devastated after all the hard work they put into it and don’t think it’s fair that they should suffer because of a bunch of idiots with nothing better to do.
THE GOOD FROM THE UGLY
To prove that there is far more good in West Norfolk than the evil people who did this have a listen to just one of our donations to the school this afternoon
A garden bench, fecning and plants all planted by the boys and girls just dumped in the school pond!
If you would like to help in the clear up there is a gathering of very kind hearted people giving up their time on Saturday morning from 10am at the school and you are more than welcome to attend too. If you are on twitter @JoRust45 has more details.
This took place between 12pm and on 20th October and 8am on Monday 3rd November and if you know anything please call PSO Caroline Docking at King’s Lynn Police Station on 101.

Despite the mixed weather today thousands made the short or for some thousands of miles journey to the Sandringham Estate to witness a moment in history.
The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge looked very much the proud parents as they strolled through a sea of well wishers towards the Church of St Mary Magdalene to christen Princess Charlotte. The pram pushed by the Duchess was a 'hand me down' from the Queen, but I think you'll agree it's almost certainly the Rolls Royce of prams, bit of a classic!
The many who showed their support cheered with delight as a very cheeky Prince George holding his Dad's hand looked around to see why he was getting so much attention. Prince George just like any other little fella of his age even tried to make a break for it after the service whilst his parents were chatting to the Archbishop of Canterbury, bless him.
Among the many people I met was a certain Terry Hutt from Weston-Super-Mare who is famous for attending Royal Events in his Union Jack suit. At one point Prince Charles even made a point of remarking how amazing he looked before entering the church.
Others I met had traveled from Peterborough, Holt, King's Lynn, Sydney, Scotland and Dubai.
My favourite story of the day was from a Florida lady who was in the UK for the British Grand Prix with her husband. It was a couple of days before the race when Lauri Spencer who kept her maiden name in honour of Lady Diana Spencer heard that the Royal Christening was happening today. Lauri decided that she couldn't miss her opportunity to see the Royal Family in the flesh and suggested that she and her hubby forgot about Silverstone and head to Sandringham instead. He disagreed, but she came on her own anyway. As for her Grand Prix ticket, a stranger who overheard their conversation cheekily said he would be happy to go in her place, and so he did with Lauri's husband whom he'd never met before. I guess he was happy with a Lewis Hamilton win, her hubby saw the race and Lauri who was wrapped in a U.S. flag celebrated the Royal occasion with new found friends in the grounds of the Queen's Estate
A big thank you and hats off should go to the security services and Norfolk Police who made sure the event ran smoothly with a presence that was certainly there but in no way intruding on anyone's enjoyment or chance to feel close to the Royal Family.
Congratulations on a beautiful family to Wills & Kate

What an amazing day in the centre of Wisbech for the 52nd Rose Fair. I took Supertrooper and the KLFM Storm from Duff Morgan to be part of the procession which also featured Wisbech Rugby Club, West Walton Primary, The Light Cinema and Tesco Community Support.
I met Minions, Micky & Minnie Mouse, Shrek and Sully from Monsters Inc amongst others.
Well done to everyone from the Wisbech Round Table for organising this yearly event which last year raised over £6000. Preparation for the Rose Fair 2016 start tomorrow!

Moving to High School is a big thing for those involved, not just the children but the parents too. When my children moved up we had all the usual worries but it really didn't take long for either of my twins to adapt!
The video below featuring my daughter explains what 'Big School' is like and how moving to year 7 is actualy really good!
I hope this helps x
A Question of Time. The programme is designed as a Question and Answer session and the topic for discussion tonight was Transition to High School. The presenters, Evie and Harvey were joined in the Gaywood Studios by Mr. Dawson, Holly and Harry from Springwood High School who answered questions from our Y6 on making the move to Year 7.
The show was produced by Aaron and Directed by Carly, who did a fantastic job of pulling the show together.
