Welcome, James Holt Joblon!

Claire Holt and husband Andrew Joblon welcomed their first child together.

The Originals actress shared a picture of her little man on Instagram writing, “Everything they say is true. There is no love like it.”

In the photo, James is wrapped in a hospital blanket and peacefully sleeping in his momma’s arms.

Pregnancy has been a difficult journey for Holt who suffered a miscarriage and underwent a consequent dilation and curettage procedure just seven months before she became pregnant with James.

As I inch closer to my due date, I often find myself reflecting on the incredible capacity of the female body. I cannot believe that I’ve created, nourished and housed a little human! It hasn’t been an easy process – I’ve cried many tears and cursed my aching body countless times. However, I have never loved or respected myself more than I do now. This #internationalwomensday is a particularly meaningful one for me. I am truly in awe of all those who have taken the journey of motherhood before me, and I feel so excited to be joining their ranks. I’m also reminded of the incredible strength that women possess, which extends far beyond having children. Every day I see examples of kind women, passionate women, intelligent women, driven women. I am endlessly inspired by ladies I know and love as well as by those I’ve never even met. Thank you to all the women in my life – and to women everywhere – for never ceasing to amaze me.

In October, she announced her pregnancy writing:

“My heart is bursting. I’m so happy to share with you that we are having a baby! It still doesn’t feel real. These past few months have been filled with excitement, anxiety, tears, joy, uncertainty but most of all gratitude,” she wrote alongside the pregnancy announcement.

My heart is bursting. I’m so happy to share with you that we are having a baby! It still doesn’t feel real. These past few months have been filled with excitement, anxiety, tears, joy, uncertainty but most of all gratitude. You never forget the deep pain of loss. It dims with time but it informs many of your experiences. Our loss earlier this year was the darkest moment of my life. Yet, it made me infinitely more thankful for the precious baby growing inside me today. I want to take a moment to acknowledge all those struggling with miscarriage, infertility or any of the difficulties that come with bringing new life into the world. I know that these announcements can hurt. I’ve felt it all. My heart is with you and I pray that our story gives you hope. Thank you all so much for your love and support – I can’t wait to share this journey with you.

Billy Hargrove Deserved Better on ‘Stranger Things’ Season 3

Why Billy Hargrove Deserved Better on Stranger Things Season 3

This post contains spoilers. If you have not watched Stranger Things Season 3, do not continue reading.

Billy Hargrove made a splash on Stranger Things Season 2 as the resident bad boy, but it wasn’t until the third season where he became fully integrated and essential to the core storyline.

In the third season, Billy rose from being a supporting character to essentially carrying the series, yet he never got the recognition he deserved.

There have been a handful of characters who I could’ve demanded justice for in the Stranger Things realm from Barb to Bob to Alexei. Trust me, they all deserve it, but Billy’s storyline especially triggered me because he was cheated from the very beginning.

He was never set up to win, and when he finally did achieve his redemption arc, it was glossed over because of a bigger death; one that admittedly, carried more weight.

I’m obviously referring to Hopper’s death.

The emotional stock of Billy’s decision to fight through the evil coursing through his body in order to save Eleven didn’t have time to sink in or resonate before the writers ripped our hearts in half by killing the hot-headed-who-always-meant-well police chief and Eleven’s dad.

But here’s why Hopper’s death shouldn’t have overshadowed Billy: there’s a huge probability that Hopper isn’t dead.

The scene following the credits showed the Russian’s referring to an “American” prisoner.

The Russians referred to Hopper as the American multiple times throughout the season, so it’s likely that Stranger Things Season 4 will be a rescue mission to save Eleven’s beloved papa.

But Billy is gone for good, and still died a secondary death.

And in his final moments, the only person who mourned him was Max, who for most of the season was forced to turn against her brother because he became the Mind Flayer’s host.

At no point did any of Max’s friends show concern over Billy nor did they try to save him from the Mind Flayer’s control. From the getgo, they rode him off as the “bad guy” because he wasn’t liked around town and accepted his fate.

Billy may have been deemed the “classic bully” and boy, he did a good job at it, but Bily wasn’t a bad guy who deserved his death.

Billy was broken and tormented.

As we saw when El tapped into his subconscious, his father was abusive and his mother abandoned him.

Instead of dealing with the trauma, Billy acted out and became a womanizer.
