Priyanka Chopra is showing off her husband’s photography skills!
The actress took to social media on Sunday to share a few stunning, poolside photos from her Italian vacation with hubby Nick Jonas, and revealed that she put him to work to get the gorgeous shots!
“Best use of a vacation. The hubby taking pictures. Lol 😝 📷@nickjonas 👙 ☀️ 🍸 💏,” she captioned the swimsuit pics.
Sister-in-law Sophie Turner also commented on the post, writing, “All you ladies pop yo [booties] like this,” complete with seven fire emojis.
Chopra and Jonas’ romantic trip also included a sweet dance in the fields of Tuscany and a date night cooking class. The proud husband shared the precious moments on his Instagram account.
Last month, Nick Jonas revealed to Apple Music that there’s a special “love letter” to his wife in one of the new Jonas Brothers’ songs.
“This song is a love letter to my wife,” Nick said of “I Believe” on their comeback album, Happiness Begins. “I’m so excited to play it on tour.”
“We listened to it a lot on your bachelor party,” Joe Jonas chimed in about the song. “It sounds even better by the beach.”
“It does,” Nick agreed. “So try that.”
On the romantic track, Nick sings about sticking with his love “through the good and the bad times.”
“Every night every day; how about every lifetime? / Yeah I know what they say, and that’s fine / ‘Cause I’m here to stay through the good and the bad times / Baby save me a space in your mind,” Nick sings. “Call me crazy / And people say that we move too fast / But I’ve been waiting, for a reason / Ain’t no turning back / ‘Cause you show me something I can’t live without.”

Michelle Obama is opening up about what it was like trying to give her kids a normal life against the backdrop of living in the White House.
The former first lady sat down with Gayle King at this year’s Essence Festival in New Orleans on Saturday for a sprawling, hour-long interview that touched on many different aspects of Michelle’s life, career and family.
When the conversation turned to her and Barack Obama’s two daughters — Malia, 21, and Sasha, 18 — Michelle reflected on the family’s unexpected rise to prominence and how they tried to keep their kids grounded.
“I credit my own upbringing, me and Barack,” she shared. “We were regular folks, up until he gave that speech at the convention and it was like all of the sudden he was shot out of a rocket.”
Once they took center stage as the First Family of the United States, they did everything in their power to not let it go to their kids’ heads.
“Our focus was to make sure they did what they needed to do, and that meant pretend like all the craziness around them wasn’t happening,” she explained. “For eight years we were like, “Yup, your dad’s president. That doesn’t have anything to do with you. Take your butt to school. Yes, you have security, just ignore them, they’re not here for you.'”
“‘Your goal is to go to school, come back, get some decent grades. Don’t act up. Don’t embarrass us,'” Michelle added, reflecting on the values they tried to instill.
Despite these teachings, the normal things all kids experience while growing up were decidedly unusual for the Obama daughters, if not for the fame than simply because of the ever-present secret service agents.
“My kids had armed guards with them at all times,” Michelle shared. “Imagine trying to have your first kiss [around] a bunch of men [with guns] and ear pieces.”
“Imagine having Malia and Sasha come to your house for a sleepover. This is the call: ‘OK, we’re gonna need your social security number, we’re gonna need your date of birth. There will be men coming to sweep your house. If you have guns and drugs, just tell them. Because they’re going to find them anyway. Don’t lie. They’re not gonna take ’em, they just need to know where they are. And by the way, there will be a man with a gun sitting on the front porch all night. Let him come in and use the bathroom, it would just be nice.'”
“I mean, I’m surprised my kids have any friends, you know?” she added.
However, with both of her kids now out of the house and away at college, Michelle reveled in the fact that her and Barack are now “empty nesters.” Not only do they have more time for themselves, their stress levels have decreased significantly.
“Not only were we parenting teenagers, but we were parenting teenagers who, every Saturday night, you had to worry about whether your kids are going to end up on Page Six,” Michelle said. “It’s stressful.”
With their time alone in their home, she explained that she and her husband of almost 27 years are “rediscovering each other.”
“This is the beauty of finding a partner you really love and respect — because after all the highs and lows, the ups and downs we’ve been through, we have each other, which makes the journey worth it,” Michelle reflected.

If you were hoping to watch Reese Witherspoon pelt Meryl Streep with an ice cream cone during this season of Big Little Lies, you’re going to have to wait a while.
Set photos snapped last year clearly hinted at a scene in which Witherspoon’s character, Madeline, threw a nearly full ice cream at Streep’s Mary Louise, but when the episode aired on Sunday, there was no hurling of delicious confection to be found.
There was, however, a scene in which Madeline and daughter Abigail (Kathryn Newton) buy ice cream and then have a confrontation with Streep outside, and it was clear from the outfits and context that this was where the ice cream throwing should have happened, but it turns out the scene was cut.
While some fans were clearly disappointed, if Twitter reactions to the missing moment are any indication, it was no secret that the scene had been left on the editing room floor. Streep said as much when the three-time Oscar winner spoke with ET at the Big Little Lies season 2 premiere back in May.
“[Reese] just told me it’s not in the show!” Streep revealed when asked about going toe-to-toe with her co-star outside the ice cream parlot. “It’s [going to be] in the DVD extras.”
While Witherspoon didn’t mention that the scene had been excised while talking with ET, she did open up about what it was like to face off against an actress as legendary as Streep throughout the season.
“It was intimidating for sure. I had to like, sometimes pull myself back and take a deep breath and go, ‘OK, she’s just a person, she’s just a human being,'” Witherspoon recalled. “But it was a thrill, and to get to sit with her and talk about the script and work through scenes, it was just like, ‘Are you kidding me?'”
“As an actor, all my life, worshipping her work, and she’s just as truthful and honest and genuine and fun loving as you can imagine,” she added.
Witherspoon previously gushed about getting to pelt Streep, telling ET last August that it was “a Top 5 moment in my career, for sure.” She also shared details of the moment when she stopped by Good Morning America, telling co-host Robin Roberts, “I might or might not have thrown an ice cream cone at Meryl Streep. In a scene, ’cause she made me mad… And I hit her! Like, I nailed it! She turned around and she was like, ‘Yeah you got me.'”
As for Adam Scott, who plays Witherspoon’s husband, Ed Mackenzie, on the HBO drama, everyone came to the table trying their hardest with Streep on board.
“She did throw an ice cream cone at her. I think that if you’re a human being you always up your game if you’re around Meryl Steep,” Scott said, adding. “You [also] up your game when you’re around Reese Witherspoon, good lord.”
As for the fans, there was plenty of disappointment and outrage online after the episode aired, and the highly-anticipated ice cream toss wasn’t seen, with one fan posting a photo of the viral moment and lamenting, “MADELINE DIDN’T THROW HER ICE CREAM AT MARY LOUISE! THIS IMAGE IS THE BIGGEST LITTLE LIE OF THEM ALL!”
After the uproar, Witherspoon tweeted about the cut scene, writing: “And I will always share these memories with you all.”

Ariana Grande is getting real about the challenges she has faced in recent years and the emotional difficulty of going on tour while also sharing her gratitude for the people who make it possible.
The “7 Rings” songstress took to Instagram on Sunday to open up about being on her Sweetener Tour during a point in her life when she’s “still processing a lot,” and how she’s still incredibly grateful for everything she’s lucky enough to have.
“Tour is wild. life is wild. i’m grateful for the sea of love i have around me everyday and for the people who come to these shows and give all of us every ounce of energy they’ve got,” Grade wrote, alongside a snapshot of herself performing on stage during one of her concerts. “I’m grateful to work with the best musicians and dancers in the world. i’m grateful for my voice and my team. i’m grateful for this music.”
“I’m grateful for my tour bus driver, Kurt who bought me pickles yesterday because he saw we ran out,” she continued. “I’m grateful for the opportunity to sing to thousands of people every night. it’s a dream come true.”
Grande added that “no matter how hard it gets or how many feelings come up that are screaming at me to be processed and sorted through one day, i’m grounded by gratitude and promise not to give up on what i’ve started.”
The 26-year-old singer – who was reportedly seen in fan-shot videos struggling to get through a song as she choked back tears on stage – said she’s someone who feels “everything very intensely.”
“I have committed to doing this tour during a time in my life when i’m still processing a lot … so sometimes i cry a lot!” Grande wrote, seemingly addressing the video. “I thank you for accepting my humanness. i’m not sure what i did to deserve to meet so many loving souls every night / to feel so much love, but i want you to know that it really does carry me through. i feel it and i appreciate it. and all of you so much.”
Grande concluded her heartfelt post with a message for any of her fans who may also be struggling with emotional challenges and hardships.
“I’m sharing this because i’m grateful and because i want you to know that if you too are hurting, you can push through and are not alone,” she wrote. “It is hard to balance taking care of the people around you, doing your job, and healing / taking care of yourself at the same time… but i want you to know, you aren’t alone and i think you’re doing great.”

Congratulations are in order for Real Housewives of Potomac stars Ashley and Michael Darby on the birth of their baby boy!
Ashley took to Instagram on Sunday to announce that the couple welcomed their “wonderful son” and that they’re “savoring every moment” of the experience.
“I never thought this day would come,” she posted along with a hospital photo of husband Michael holding their new bundle of joy. “When I learned I was pregnant, I started thinking about when I’d feel the first kicks. Then, when I was feeling the flutters, I wanted to know when I’d finally start to show. After watching the bump grow, my mind went to birthing day (WILL THIS REALLY HAPPEN?!)”
“And when the day finally came that this sweet child came into our world, it felt like the sunniest day after a sky filled grey,” she continued. “The most sensational day of our shared life. Mickey and I are savoring every moment with our wonderful son ♥️ #RHOP #ashleydarby #michaeldarby”
While the reality stars have yet to reveal their son’s name, Ashley did take to Instagram Stories to let her followers know this was the happiest day of their lives. In another posted she added, “What a beautiful day we had.”
This is the first child for Ashley — who first revealed the news that she was expecting in February — and the third for husband Michael, who has two kids from his previous marriage.
In related news, ET had your exclusive first look at this week’s all-new Real Housewives of Potomac, where Ashley made it clear she isn’t here for people talking about her man in the wake of the other housewives confronting her with the information that Michael may have said he wanted to be intimate with a man.
“‘If these women are going to keep saying these things about me and bashing me like this, I don’t really want you hanging around them,'” she said, quoting Michael. “‘I don’t want them in our lives.'”
