Sophia Loren

Living legend Sophia Loren has a big beautiful family to call her own. Find out all about the iconic Italian actress’ grandkids Lucia and Leonardo here!

Sophia Loren is an international movie star and living legend who embodies the glitz and glamour of classic Hollywood. Considered one of the most beautiful actresses to ever grace the silver screen, the Italian goddess is still going strong at 87, as she recently starred in 2020’s The Life Ahead, which was written and directed by her own son Edoardo Ponti. Born in Rome, Sophia found success early with back-to-back hits in Italian cinema. It didn’t take her long to do the same when she landed in America, quickly becoming a household name starring alongside Anthony Perkins in Desire Under the Elms and Cary Grant in Houseboat. With 1960’s Two Women, Sophia became the first actress to win an Oscar for a foreign-language performance. She even scored a second Academy Award nomination for 1965’s Marriage Italian-Style.

Sophia’s one and only marriage, which took place in Mexico in 1957, was to Italian film producer Carlo Ponti, who was 27 years her senior. They welcomed Carlo Ponti Jr. in December 1968 and Edoardo was born on January 6, 1973. Carlo would go on to become an orchestra conductor and marry Andrea Meszaros Ponti in 2004, according to Closer. They have two children, but little is known about them as the family is very private. Edoardo would marry actress Sasha Alexander, who has starred in such shows as NCIS and Rizzoli & Isles. They share daughter Lucia, 15, and son Leonardo, 11.

Lucia (pictured left above) has definitely garnered the good looks gene from Sophia, as she has blossomed into a beautiful teenager. Although she is Hollywood royalty, and has a godmother in actress Jessica Capshaw, her mom was careful to bring her to the set of Rizzoli & Isles for a good reason. “Yes, I can bring my daughter, any time I want. But, given that we’re working with a lot of corpses, she doesn’t come that often. I think that might be a little traumatic,” Sasha told Collider in 2010.

Leonardo Ponti

Little Leonardo appears to be on the verge of a dancing career, as he was seen bopping around with his mom to some tunes last January here. Speaking with Collider, his mom revealed how motherhood has positively affected her entire life. “I think that becoming a parent absolutely changes your entire life and certainly changes your work, and it has changed mine. It just allows you to have access to your emotions, even more than you already did. You’re watching this little person grow in front of you, and you realize that you’re seeing how precious life is and how quickly it goes.”

90 Day Fiancé: Are Caleb and Alina Still Together? Find Out

90 Day Fiancé: Are Caleb and Alina Still Together? Here's What We Know

90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Day’s Caleb Greenwood and Alina Kasha are one of the most-watched couples of their season and viewers are dying to know…do they make it?

Fan-favorite couple Caleb and Alina got off to a bit of a rocky start much to the disappointment of viewers, and Alina herself. The two had a lot of built-up hype and anticipation going into their first meeting and unfortunately, things did not go exactly as planned.

Caleb and Alina met online 13 years prior on a language learning app, where Russian native Alina was learning English, and American-born Arizonian Caleb was looking to learn Russian. The two struck up a friendship but never met in person. But then, 13 years later as Caleb was looking to expand his horizons by dating abroad, who should he find pop up on his international dating app, but Alina! The two felt it had to be more than coincidence and struck up a courtship which quickly turned into a romance. But as the Russian borders are still closed due to Covid, the two decided to follow in the steps of their similarly named 90 Day Fiance costars, Alina Bio and Steven Johnson, and meet up in the neutral location of Turkey, one of the few places with open borders to both Americans and Russians at this time. So the two set up a date and made a plan.

But the couple’s best-laid plans seemed to go awry. Alina is a little person and has difficulty with walking long distances so she often uses a wheelchair. When Caleb arrived in Turkey after two flights and being awake for 30 hours, he seemed less than enthusiastic about having to push his luggage and Alina’s wheelchair through the crowded Istanbul airport. Things were tense between the two, and once they arrived back at the hotel, Caleb went right to sleep. It was not a magical first meeting to be sure.

At that point, fans couldn’t help but wonder…does this couple make it?

Well, fans should be happy to hear, that so far all signs point to yes! Here’s why we think so.

The couple still follows each other on Instagram, which as we have seen with many other 90 Day couples, is usually a good sign. It seems one of the first things to go when a couple falls out, is their social media presence with each other. When things go rocky, that unfollow button seems to be the first thing hit. So the fact that the two do still follow each other, is a good sign right off the bat.

Caleb also recently posted a picture to his Instagram of him and Alina posing together on their very first morning together in Istanbul, and the couple looks very cozy.

Caleb poses shirtless cuddled up next to Alina who is in a revealing robe. Alina is also tagged in the post and while the caption simply states it is a photo from their first morning together in Turkey, the picture certainly doesn’t send any red flags that the couple might not be together anymore. The picture was posted about a week ago, so while it is an old picture it is not an old posting.

Caleb also posted a picture of a shirt with a 90 Day Fiance quote on it, coined by 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After star Julia Trubkina. The shirt says “I Go Russia” and has the 90 Day Fiance logo on it. Since Alina is Russian, the shirt is in reference to the couples traveling abroad to see each other and Caleb having a Russian 90 Day Fiance partner, as Julia Trabinka is. Caleb expressed in the post how much he loved the shirt and was happy to receive this belated Christmas present. It would seem if he and Alina had called it quits, he would not be happy to receive a t-shirt with her country of origin on it.

But Caleb isn’t the only one in the couple showing some love. While Alina has not posted any pictures of the couple themselves to her Instagram she does gush over one of Caleb’s gifts to her in her Instagram story. One of Alina’s fans posted a video of her receiving a copy of Mariah Carey’s book from Caleb as a gift while they were in Turkey. The fan joked that she knew she had liked Alina and that their shared love of Mariah Carey confirmed it. Alina reposted the story to her own Instagram and added that the book was “the best gift ever” with lots of hearts and love emojis.

What can we say, things are looking great for these two! While fans had initially expressed concern over the couple’s rocky start and the awkward first night, the passionate kiss and makeout session the two shared in their hotel room on their second night, seemed to put some of that to rest. After carrying Alina up the staircase, Caleb placed Alina on the tv stand and just…went for it! The couple shared their very first kiss and maybe a little more? At this point, Alina and Caleb appear to be going strong on both the show so far and in their life post-show.  And come on, that first kiss was so hot, how could these two not be headed for a steamy romance?

Yes, things are certainly heating up for the 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days fan-favorite couple Caleb and Alina. And as far as we can tell these two have no intention of slowing things down as all signs point to these two lovebirds as still living out their happily ever after.

Kim Kardashian Rocks Black Leather Trench With Nothing Underneath Heading To Art Show — Photos

Kim Kardashian

Kim made quite the entrance to an art show when she arrived in a sexy black ensemble that left little to the imagination.

Showstopper! Kim Kardashian made onlookers pause as she arrived at an art show wearing a very sexy outfit. The reality star and makeup mogul, 40, stepped out in Beverly Hills on Saturday night (January 22) to take in the new offerings at a local gallery. Looking every inch the supermodel, Kim wrapped her flawless figure in a black leather trench coat and left little to the imagination as she wore nothing underneath. The coat was left wide open at the top, giving fans a peek at her decolletage. With her trademark raven tresses pulled back tightly, the mother of four framed her face with oversized sunglasses, as she stomped the pavement in designer high heels.

The sophisticated look comes just a day after Kim set temperatures soaring when she hit the beach for a sizzling photo shoot for her SKIMS line. She was the ultimate professional while posing to get the perfect snaps in a black bikini and a plunging one-piece. To add some sparkle to the surf-ready look, the KUWTK star donned a few gold ankle bracelets. While rocking the nude swimsuit, Kim frolicked in the surf, giving onlookers quite the charge. She added a slew of shiny bracelets to her wrists and a pair of oversized earrings to set off the stylish look.

Both the art gallery outing and the photo shoot follows the news that Kim has the unwavering support of her mother, Kris Jenner, in the midst of the Kanye divorce drama. The mother/daughter bond is proving to be unbreakable, as Kim is forced to deal with Kanye claiming he is being kept from his children’s birthday parties and allegedly singing about beating up Kim’s new beau Pete Davidson. Even though it appears all too much for one to take, a source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife that Kim will be just fine with Kris in her corner.

“Everybody knows what a strong and independent woman Kim is. But that doesn’t mean she couldn’t use some support every now and then,” the source explained. “She’s going through a lot with this Kanye drama, and she couldn’t be more grateful for her mom during this time. Kris really is the glue that keeps the family together and Kim doesn’t know what she’d do without her.”
