Meghan Markle Made Ex Husband Sign a Pregnancy Contract to Guard Her Acting Career

Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, wife to Prince Harry and frontrunner of Megxit, has always had an element of intrigue about her. Be it because of her former profession, which granted her the privilege to steal hearts through her performance. And Markle did just that on Suits.

However, she managed to weave in a plot twist that the writers of the show could never have made possible by marrying Prince Harry. While at first, it was the marriage with a foreign actress aspect that had the nation in shock, the fact that Markle is a divorcee only added to it.

The shock waves did not die down a year after the marriage when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their first pregnancy. Netizens, who were on guard with the foreign entry, were thrown off by a revelation about her pregnancy with her former husband, Trever Engelson.

Meghan Markle and Trevor Engelson’s shocking pregnancy contract

As the Sussexes were hoping to celebrate the good news with the royal family, another shocking detail about Meghan Markle’s life before royalty was revealed. The shocking aspect mostly pertained to those who expected her to be a milk-washed princess sitting on a pedestal. A source told Daily Mail that she had a ‘pregnancy contract’ for her ex-husband. “She demanded a personal trainer and nutritionist during and after the pregnancy,” they said. The clauses, considering the fact that she was an actress who finally earned her big break, are totally normal.

The source went on to reveal how Markle has body issues because it is in her genes to easily gain fat. This was one of the major reasons behind the pregnancy contract. However, the legitimacy of this statement or proof of this contract is yet to be revealed. But it leaves open for a question whether the former actress had a similar clause with current husband during the two pregnancies they shared since they tied the knot.

Do the Sussexes have a pregnancy contract?

The revelation of Meghan Markle being too conscious about her body fluctuating during pregnancy seems false with how gracefully she carried Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.

The Duchess of Sussex’s maternity looks were not only a masterclass in fashion but also confidence. While it has not been revealed if Meghan Markle forced the same contract on Prince Harry, the Duke has a few conditions himself.

Hollywood Actor Reveals He is Being Treated for Stage-Three Cancer

The actor Sam Neill has revealed that he is being treated for stage-three blood cancer in a candid memoir to be released on Tuesday.

In an interview with the Guardian about his book, Did I Ever Tell You This?, the 75-year-old Jurassic Park star discusses his career in film and television, the nature of celebrity, life on his New Zealand farm, and mortality, having opened his book with a shock.

“The thing is, I’m crook. Possibly dying,” he writes in chapter one, “I may have to speed this up.”

Neill started writing vignettes from his life as a way to keep busy – and as a salve – while undergoing treatment last year.

“I found myself with with nothing to do,” Neill said in the interview. “And I’m used to working. I love working. I love going to work. I love being with people every day and enjoying human company and friendship and all these things. And suddenly I was deprived of that. And I thought, ‘what am I going to do?’

“I never had any intention to write a book. But as I went on and kept writing, I realised it was actually sort of giving me a reason to live and I would go to bed thinking, ‘I’ll write about that tomorrow … that will entertain me.’ And so it was a lifesaver really, because I couldn’t have gone through that with nothing to do, you know.”

In Did I Ever Tell You This? – with its cover line endorsements from the likes of Meryl Streep, Laura Dern and Stephen Fry – Neill reveals himself to be an enormously good raconteur with a collection of stories that take the reader from his first seven years in Ireland to growing up in New Zealand and the eccentricities of his family life, through funny coming of age stories and amusing anecdotes from film sets over the years (co-stars behaving badly, take note).

He said his book is not a cancer memoir, that rather his illness forms a “spiral thread” throughout the narrative.

Neill first experienced swollen glands during publicity for Jurassic World Dominion in March last year and was soon diagnosed with angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma. He received chemotherapy, but when that started to fail, he embarked on a new chemotherapy drug which he will continue to receive monthly for the rest of his life, although he is now cancer-free.

“I can’t pretend that the last year hasn’t had its dark moments,” he said. “But those dark moments throw the light into sharp relief, you know, and have made me grateful for every day and immensely grateful for all my friends. Just pleased to be alive.”

Neill, whose acting career began in the 1970s and is comprised of over 150 roles from My Brilliant Career to The Piano to Jurassic Park to Peaky Blinders, is currently in preparation to start filming on the television adaptation of Liane Moriarty’s bestselling novel Apples Never Fall, being filmed in Australia and co-starring Annette Bening.

Indian Actor Attacked by Man with Hatchet (VIDEO)

Aman Dhaliwal, a Punjabi and Bollywood actor, was attacked by a man wielding a hatchet and a knife just outside Los Angeles on Tuesday, according to police.

The assault left Dhaliwal with multiple stab wounds to his upper body (pictured above right); he has since been released from hospital.

In shocking video captured inside a Planet Fitness gym, Dhaliwal can be seen restraining a man appearing to be in possession of both a hatchet and a knife. The 41-year-old actor is seen holding onto the arm carrying the hatchet, while the suspect seemingly brandishes a knife in his other hand. According to police, the suspect stabbed Dhaliwal with the knife while he was being restrained.

During one of the suspect’s apparent outbursts captured in the footage, Dhaliwal takes the opportunity to then throw the man to the ground.

Only later, as the suspect is being held down by bystanders, do you see that Dhaliwal is covered in his own blood.

Per Corona police the incident took place just after 9am on Tuesday; authorities have identified the suspect as 30-year-old Ronald Chand, per ABC7 news.

Dhaliwal will reportedly fully recover from his injuries. He resides in nearby Riverside, CA.

The suspect, Chand, is said to have been briefly hospitalized for minor injuries before being transported to Robert Presley Detention Center under suspicion of attempted murder. Bail was set at $1 million.

Dhaliwal has worked on films such as “Ik Kudi Punjab Di” and “Ajj De Ranjhe” and Bollywood content, “Jodhaa Akbar” and “Big Brother.”

Sharon Stone Makes Tearful Admission During Cancer Fundraiser

Sharon Stone is sharing that she’s been affected by the current banking crisis.

While accepting the Courage Award at the Women’s Cancer Research Fund’s (WCRF) An Unforgettable Evening fundraiser on Thursday night, the actress became emotional as she encouraged the audience to donate more money to important causes, revealing that she recently “lost half [of] my money to this banking thing.”

“I know that thing that you have to get on and figure out how to text the money is difficult. I’m a technical idiot, but I can write a f—ing check,” Stone quipped as the audience cheered.

She then became more serious, adding, “And right now, that’s courage, too, because I know what’s happening. I just lost half [of] my money to this banking thing, and that doesn’t mean that I’m not here.”

The “Casino” star didn’t share further details regarding the “banking thing” she mentioned, however, she was seemingly referring to the recent collapse of Silicon Valley Bank, the second-largest bank failure in U.S. history.

Continuing her speech, Stone spoke about the “hard times” we’re living in, and brought up the recent death of her brother, Patrick, who passed away at the age of 57 last month following a heart attack.

“My brother just died, and that doesn’t mean that I’m not here,” she explained. “This is not an easy time for any of us. This is a hard time in the world, but I’m telling you what, I’m not having some politician tell me what I can and cannot do. How I can and cannot live, and what the value of my life is and is not. So stand up. Stand up and say what you’re worth. I dare you. That’s what courage is.”

Elsewhere, Stone opened up about her past breast cancer scare, stressing the importance of getting routine mammograms.

In her 2021 memoir “The Beauty of Living Twice,” Stone revealed that she had benign tumors removed in 2001, writing that were “gigantic, bigger than my breast alone.”

“Those mammograms are not fun,” Stone said. “And for someone like me who was told that I had breast cancer because I had a tumor that was larger than my breast, and they were sure that I couldn’t possibly have a tumor without it being cancer, it wasn’t. But I went to the hospital, saying, ‘If you open me up and it’s cancer, please take both my breasts,’ because I am not a person defined by my breasts.”

“You know, that might seem funny coming from me since you’ve all seen ’em,'” she continued, adding, “You’ve all seen ’em since the surgery and you don’t even know it. So don’t ever feel compelled not to get a mammogram, not to get a blood test, not to get surgery because it doesn’t matter.”

“I’m standing here telling you I had one-and-a-half and more tissue of my breasts removed and none of you knew it,” Stone said.

CNN’s Kaitlan Collins Threatens to Leave After Morning Show Blowup

Chris Licht’s morning show continues to fall apart at the seams, with one of the stars threatening to relocate hundreds of miles from CNN This Morning‘s helm in New York City after experiencing a fallout with her co-anchor.

Kaitlan Collins, 30, had private conversations about returning to Washington, D.C., leaving her on-air frenemy Don Lemon, 57, and Poppy Harlow, 40, in the dust. The revelation comes three months after Lemon blew up on Collins, “screaming” and accusing her of “interrupting” him after their December 8 broadcast.

His outburst left Collins “visibly upset” and staffers who witnessed the altercation “shaken.” She is said to want to work with Lemon as little as possible. Collins — the youngest chief White House correspondent in CNN’s history — distanced herself more by dropping her United Talent Agency agent, Jay Sures, who also represents Don.

Lemon and Collins never repaired their relationship after Don’s temper tantrum. As previously reported, Lemon had a second blowup after discovering his argument with his much younger co-anchor was highlighted in the company newsletter.

“Don lost his mind internally and went ballistic at staffers after the CNN newsletter highlighted a story about him screaming,” an insider shared.

CNN declined to comment on the second outburst when we reached out.

Don continued to anger his female co-hosts when he claimed women are in their prime during their “20s, 30s, and maybe 40s” while discussing presidential hopeful Nikki Haley, 51.

Harlow was said to be furious at Lemon and rushed off the set for a “well-timed” bathroom break with Collins following her.

Their feud runs deeper than the altercation and Don’s foot-in-mouth comment. A source revealed that Lemon’s ego was bruised when Licht yanked him from primetime to morning television, forcing him to leave his own show to co-host with two less experienced anchors.

The well-connected insider also revealed that Lemon’s “frustrated and surprised at how things have turned out.”

Licht has continued to give Don passes, instructing the television veteran to undergo “formal training” after the backlash for his age-shaming remarks — however, discovered that the big boss might not be so understanding.

Punk News claimed David Zaslav, the President of Warner Bros, who put Licht up for his position, is at his wits-end with Don.

He allegedly believes that Lemon is 100 percent responsible for the mess he’s created on the air and with his co-anchors. Sources said the Warner Bros. boss was already wary of Don — and there may not be a strike three.

With Collins threatening to leave CNN This Morning‘s home base, the show’s future remains unclear.

Def Leppard Member Assaulted Outside Florida Hotel

The drummer of legendary rock group Def Leppard was assaulted outside the hotel he was staying at after a show in South Florida.

Rick Allen, who sadly lost his arm in a car accident back in 1984, was outside the Four Seasons in the valet area for a smoke. That’s when a very strange and scary encounter happened.

Allen was in South Florida to perform a show at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino over the weekend.

The show, this past Sunday, had Def Leppard co-headlining with Mötley Crüe.

Allen, 59, was staying at the Four Seasons on Fort Lauderdale Beach.

According to a police report, he was violently attacked by Max Edward Hartley, 19, who was visiting from Ohio.

Bailey bailed out of the Broward County Jail on Tuesday. He was met by a 7News photographer who questioned why he would knock over a man with one arm and whether he knew that the man was Def Leppard’s drummer.

“Max, are you a Def Leppard fan?” he’s asked.

Hartley turned away without comment.

Fort Lauderdale Police said Hartley was hiding behind a pillar outside the hotel while Allen was smoking his cigarette when Hartley, according to the report, ran at full speed at Allen, knocking him to the ground.

The report states Allen “hit his head on the ground causing injury.”

The report then says a woman ran out of the hotel to help Allen, and Hartley, police said, then attacked her.

According to the report, “While she is on the ground, the defendant continues to batter her by striking her. [She] attempts to escape by running into the hotel. The defendant then grabs [her] by her hair and drags her out of the lobby and back onto the sidewalk before fleeing the area.”

Hartley was arrested after he was found at a nearby hotel breaking car windows.

The suspect said nothing to 7News cameras besides, “Stop,” as he held his arms up to shield his face, showing visible injuries on his elbows.

He has been charged with two counts of battery, four counts of criminal mischief, and abusing an elderly or disabled adult.

Allen provided a sworn statement to police and told them that he indeed wants to prosecute.

7News has reached out to Allen’s media team to see whether he would be available for comment, but as of Wednesday evening, there has been no response.

CNN’s Anderson Cooper Refusing to Help Don Lemon

Don Lemon has become so toxic at CNN following his sexist comments about certain women not being in their “prime” that even his pal Anderson Cooper is staying away.

“Anderson wants nothing to do with Don anymore. People inside CNN run when they see Don coming down the hallway,” squealed the source. “No one wants to end up on the wrong side when Don messes up again — and he will! He’s a ticking time bomb.”

The 57-year-old CNN This Morning anchor sparked a firestorm over the past several months following his controversial move from primetime to daytime television.

According to sources, Lemon’s ego was bruised when Chris Licht forced him to leave his own show to co-host with two less experienced anchors — Kaitlan Collins, 30, and Poppy Harlow, 40.

As reported, Lemon faced major backlash after he age-shamed presidential hopeful Nikki Haley, 51, by claiming women are in their prime in their 20s, 30s, and maybe 40s. His female co-host Poppy was so upset with his comment that she stormed off the stage when they went to break.

But that isn’t the only blunder he’s endured since taking on the CNN This Morning position.

Don sparked an in-house war when he “screamed” at Collins, accusing her of “interrupting” him during their December 8 broadcast. While the temper tantrum happened off-air, several staffers were left “shaken” after witnessing the incident.

Collins reportedly wants to work with Lemon as little as possible following the blowup.

This outlet exclusively revealed that Don had a second outburst after learning his argument with Collins made the CNN newsletter.

“Don lost his mind internally and went ballistic at staffers after the CNN newsletter highlighted a story about him screaming,” an insider shared.

While Licht failed to punish Lemon for his outburst on Collins, the CNN anchor was forced to undergo “formal training” after he age-shamed women — but was back on the air a few short days later. has also learned that Lemon’s career isn’t the only thing hanging by a thread lately.

Sources claimed the stress of Lemon’s job is threatening his romance with fiancé Tim Malone.

“He knows he’s got to step up the pampering and spoiling and generally be more pleasant to be around, but it’s been tough,” shared the insider. “He hates his job and is taking it out on a lot of people including his co-workers and Tim.”

‘Duck Dynasty’ Star Missy Robertson Slams Behavior of Library Staff at Kirk Cameron Event

“Duck Dynasty” star Missy Robertson gave a firsthand account of the “pushback” she, Christian actor Kirk Cameron and women’s sports advocate Riley Gaines received from staff at a public library in Hendersonville, Tennessee, where they had planned a story-hour for children.

On the “Unashamed” podcast with Phil and Jase Robertson, Missy said library staff were disruptive as she and Cameron attempted to film marketing videos for their books before the Feb. 25 event. She described how staff members made loud noises and played music from behind the front desk after they had asked for about a minute of quiet to record their videos. 

“[The lady at the front desk of the library] said, ‘We’re just trying to look for things to deal with our stress.’ Stre— … what stress? … We’re just standing there with a camera doing a marketing video,” Robertson said. “That’s when I turned my phone on. I started recording. I was like, ‘This is blatant and ridiculous.'” 

Cameron is on a national tour of public libraries to promote his children’s book, “As You Grow,” which shares biblical wisdom with kids and families. These events are a direct response to “drag queen story hours,” which have grown in popularity at public libraries across the country. Robertson, the author of children’s book “Because You’re My Family,” and Gaines, who lives in the Hendersonville area, were invited to Cameron’s event at the public library as special guests. 

"Duck Dynasty" star Missy Robertson reads her book, "Because You're My Family," to children at a public library in Hendersonville, Tennessee.

Cameron’s publisher, Texas-based Brave Books, previously told Fox News Digital that a head official at Hendersonville Public Library had sought to cancel the event after he learned that many families with children were going to attend. Library officials initially said their facility could not handle a large-scale event, but they relented after the library’s board of directors and the community pushed back on library staff.

Though the event happened as planned with an overflow crowd, Brave Books said the library staff “treated us terribly, unfortunately.” 

According to Robertson’s account, “hundreds” of people with children were lined up outside, in the rain in February, to attend the event. She expressed anger that these families were not permitted to wait inside, where it was dry and warm. 

“Not only were they rude to us … they were super rude to their entire community that lived there in Hendersonville, Tennessee, because that is a public library and they could have invited all those people who were standing in the rain to come and form lines inside the library, down the aisles, sit on the ground,” Robertson said. “We weren’t even reading in the library part, we were down the hall in a conference room. They wouldn’t let them in. They made them stand outside in the freezing cold with their children in the rain. Total rudeness to me.” 

Hendersonville Public Library did not immediately respond to a request for comment. 

Although there was “negative pushback,” Cameron said he was happy for the opportunity to address hundreds of families at his event with messages of faith, family and country — and that this is all part of his effort to “take back the hearts and minds of America’s children.”

He told Fox News Digital, “Many public institutions have been infiltrated with individuals who intentionally silence wholesome movements like ours — while families are crying out for a return to the faith-based virtue and American values that lead to our blessing and protection.”  

Robertson was dismayed that an event promoting faith-based values got negative pushback.

“This is not in California or New York City. This is in Nashville. People are moving to Nashville and the surrounding areas to get away from this stuff,” she said on the podcast. “It’s not just happening in, quote, ‘liberal’ areas. They’re coming for your kids!” 

Reached for comment, Hendersonville Mayor Jamie Clary told Fox News Digital that library employees are county employees, and that the mayor’s office has no authority over them. He touted Hendersonville’s status as a faith-based community, observing that, “very often, the first question asked of a Hendersonville newcomer is ‘Do you have a church home yet?’”

He said he would invite Cameron, Robertson and Gaines to return and see the rest of the city.

“If they would like to attend a city board meeting, they would be welcome to lead us in the pledge and prayer—our typical opening. Usually, I invite a local pastor to provide the prayer; other times our board members do it,” Clary said. “Three years ago, I received a letter from a national organization protesting the prayers at our meetings. I threw the letter in the trash.”

Sources Say Prince Andrew Is Ready to “Reveal All” in Memoir

Prince Andrew “may have to write a memoir” in order to bolster his ailing finances, a friend of the prince has explained, following reports that he was left out of the queen’s will, and her entire estate passed to King Charles.

The friend said, “He has done everything he has been asked to do. He settled the lawsuit, he kept a low profile, he hasn’t complained. His mother always valued his loyalty. She would be aghast at his allowance being reduced. He may have to write a memoir.”

Asked if writing a memoir was a serious prospect that Andrew has actually talked about, the friend said: “It’s being talked about regularly. Sarah has had real success with her books and has great publishing contacts. Harry’s book has proved that there is no shortage of appetite for stories about the royal family. Why shouldn’t Andrew tell his side of the story now his mother is gone?”

Sarah’s books are published by the romantic imprint Mills and Boon, which is part of Harper Collins. An email to Harper Collins’s non-fiction division, asking about the possibility of publishing an Andrew memoir, went unanswered. Several other publishers approached by The Daily Beast declined to comment, which hints at just how controversial publishing his memoir would be, especially if it took aim at his sex abuse accuser, Virginia Giuffre.

Given the toxicity of Andrew’s reputation it seems likely that mainstream publishers would not want be seen giving him a huge payday.

“I wouldn’t touch it with a barge pole.”

He may face an uphill struggle to secure a lucrative deal with a reputable publisher; one independent publisher told news outlets: “I wouldn’t touch it with a barge pole.”

However, another literary agent stated that any book by Andrew, while not in the same commercial league as writings by Harry or Meghan, could fetch “several million” dollars.

Asked if reports that Virginia Giuffre is contemplating publishing a book were contributing to Andrew’s thought processes around doing a memoir of his own, the friend of Andrew’s said they didn’t believe it was “a major factor.”

The simple fact is that a decent wedge of cash might be more than enough of a temptation for a broke Andrew to put pen to paper. He has reportedly been left “bewildered” by the failure of his mother to bequeath him a substantial inheritance, and is being pressured to move out of his 30-room home, Royal Lodge, by his brother. He has reportedly been offered the cheaper-to-run former home of Harry and Meghan, Frogmore Cottage, instead.

Writing a memoir would almost result in total excommunication from the royal fold, but given that his brother has made it very clear there is no path back to public life for him, even going so far as to ponder banning him from wearing a special ceremonial velvet costume at the coronation in May, and that there will be no significant annual stipend in the years to come, he might be persuaded that he doesn’t have a great deal to lose.

Andrew’s potential for making money via other avenues is also severely limited; no mainstream, family-friendly brand in the west would partner with him and he would be ill-advised to travel to the United States, where he is still wanted for questioning by the FBI over his involvement with Jeffrey Epstein.

However, Andrew still has close contacts (and supporters) in parts of the Middle East; last year he went on a private jaunt to Bahrain to stay with the royal family there in great luxury. He allegedly travelled on a private jet belonging to a Swiss billionaire.

Neither Buckingham Palace, nor Andrew’s legal representative responded to requests for comment made by The Daily Beast.

King Charles III, Anne, Princess Royal, Prince William, Prince of Wales, Prince Andrew, Duke of York, Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex, Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex arrive at St. George’s Chapel on September 19, 2022 in Windsor, England.

Andrew Lownie, a historian and author of royal books including Traitor King, The Scandalous Exile of the Duke & Duchess of Windsor who also has a long and storied career as a literary agent, said that while there was no doubt a book by Andrew would sell, if it “washed dirty linen in public” he said he thought it would only “make matters worse” for Andrew himself.

Lownie, who is working on a new biography of the prince, entitled Prince Andrew: A Prince of the Blood to be published next year said: “The lesson of the Newsnight interview is that the less he says the better. His story is not very edifying. Who would believe what he wrote, anyway? He has been shown to be a liar and a book would only make matters worse.

“There have been rumors circulating for a while that he is planning an interview or a book or to try and overturn the settlement. But I very much doubt it is all anything more than a negotiating tactic [to get a better settlement from Charles]. He is a great supporter of the monarchy, and I think he is actually more supportive of his brother than is sometimes portrayed.”

“The British upper classes fear death duties more than death itself”

— Friend of King Charles

The threat of Andrew dabbling in the literary world is unlikely to trouble the king too much, a friend of Charles told The Daily Beast.

“Harry’s book seems to have only damaged Harry,” said the friend. “Of course a book by Andrew would be unwelcome but it would only harm Andrew in the long run.”

Asked if the reports in the Sun on Sunday this weekend that Andrew had been left out of the queen’s will were true, thus enabling the estate, worth an estimated $780 million, to benefit from a “monarch-to-monarch” exemption to inheritance tax, the friend said: “I’m sure the queen passed on her estate in the most tax-efficient way possible. Charles is the boss now and she clearly trusted Charles to do the right thing. I can’t believe any of this would have come as a surprise to Andrew. The British upper classes fear death duties more than death itself, so it wouldn’t surprise me at all.”

Barack Obama Celebrates Release of New Documentary with Former Staffers

Former President Barack Obama made a surprise trip to Texas on Sunday for a very special cause.

The 44th POTUS joined his former White House staffers Brian Wallach and Sandra Abrevaya for an Obama Foundation alumni event celebrating the SXSW premiere of their new documentary, No Ordinary Campaign, at Arlyn Studios in Austin.

Calling the moment a “privilege,” Wallach told PEOPLE, “We first learned how to turn hope into action on his 2008 campaign. So to hear from him tonight, talking about how we are living out that legacy, was incredible.”

On the day they brought their second child home from the hospital in 2017, Wallach and Abrevaya experienced another life-changing event when Wallach, then 37, was diagnosed with ALS and given six months to live

After throwing himself back into his work as a lawyer in Chicago, he decided he was going to change the future of the disease.

The tireless work of Wallach and Abrevaya, both 42, to help pass the 2021 Accelerating Access to Critical Therapies for ALS Act — which aims to foster drug development and access and provide five years of monumental research funding — is documented in No Ordinary Campaign.

“I just want to say how incredibly proud and inspired I am by Brian and Sandra and their entire family and their entire network of friends who have taken an incredibly challenging moment and are driving change,” Obama said in his remarks at Sunday night’s event. “I think as long as I know that there are folks out here, like the two of you, and so many of you in the audience, that I continue to be hopeful about the country. And I feel hopeful about the world.”

Obama appears in the documentary, speaking to Wallach’s can-do attitude and ribbing the couple for not naming one of their two young daughters for him. The pair met while working on the former president’s 2008 campaign.

Wallach and Abrevaya traveled to Austin with loved ones and supporters to celebrate the film’s release at the Rollins Theatre over the weekend, joining executive producer Katie Couric (Everybody Loves Raymond creator Phil Rosenthal also produced), their friend and director Christopher Burke and singer Rachel Platten, who met the couple by chance on a recent vacation and gave them the rights to her hit “Fight Song” for the film.

The film premiered at the Chicago International Film Festival in 2022, where it won the Audience Award for best documentary, and recently screened at the 2023 Santa Barbara International Film Festival in California.
