Woman gives birth in restaurant restroom; baby offered free food for life and a guaranteed job when she
A woman took an unplanned bathroom break at Chick-Fil-A and ended up delivering her baby there in the restaurant's restroom.

Falon Griffin began having contractions on Tuesday. She and her husband Robert Griffin made a stop on their way to San Antonio, Texas’ University Hospital to meet up with a family friend at a local Chick-Fil-A store so they could drop off their two older daughters with them before going to deliver their baby.

As they stopped, Falon realized she needed to use the bathroom. It was after 10 p.m. at the time and Chick-Fil-A was closed but the couple banged on the windows to try and get the staff’s attention because Falon didn’t feel like she could wait until they got to the hospital.

Falon was allowed inside while her husband waved goodbye to the kids. Afterward, Robert went inside the store and was told by the manager that his wife was “screaming” in the restroom, only for him to learn that she was in the process of giving birth.

Writing about it in a Facebook post that has since gone viral, Robert said: "Last night I delivered our baby girl IN THE BATHROOM AT A CHICK-FIL-A!"

Later, Robert told KENS-TV: "I can see just the top of Gracelyn’s head, just barely crowning, but I knew we couldn’t go anywhere. So I told her, ‘Sweetie, we’re gonna do something great, and we’re gonna do it right here and we’re gonna do it right now'."

“I couldn’t control it,” his wife added. “I was basically [straddling] the toilet — I wasn’t even sitting down. I was literally standing giving birth, with one hand on the wall and one hand holding her head.”

However, during the delivery, Robert wrote on Facebook that he noticed that the child’s umbilical cord "was wrapped around her neck twice." Not wanting to worry his wife, Robert “told her to relax for a minute and I was somehow able to unwrap the chord [sic] from the baby’s neck.”

“With two more strong pushes, and using my shirt for a towel, out came Gracelyn Mae Violet Griffin,” he wrote, adding that “paramedics arrived 15 minutes later” and that “everyone’s healthy.”

Continuing, the proud father wrote, “Her birth certificate reads ‘Born in Chick-Fil-A’ and the hospital had me sign the birth certificate as the attending physician. ?”

In honor of the unexpected delivery, the popular franchise will give her free food for life and has also guaranteed her a job as soon as she turns 16.

Movie Producers Are Benching Us For Those With British Accent - Actress Daniels
Tracy Daniels
 
While speaking in an exclusive interview with Vanguard, beautiful light-skinned Tracy Daniels opened up to the perception of many that most actresses are wayward, adding that there are wayward people everywhere, not only in Nollywood.
 
The pretty diva who had made headlines few months ago after she expressed her desire to buy ‘a s*x doll’, as  a special Valentine Day gift to herself, also lamented on the discriminatory attitudes of some movie producers towards the home-based actors.
 
She said; “Nollywood ladies are flashy and so, people have this perception that every flashy lady sell her body for money. It happens everywhere and in every career including the banking industry, but just because we are role models, people tend to think there should be perfection in Nollywood.” 
 
Speaking on why her beautiful face has been missing on the big screen in recent times, Tracy blamed the ugly development on some notable production companies over their discriminatory attitudes towards the home-based actors.
 
She said that apart from the fact that good scripts have been hard to come by in recent times, most notable production companies are only featuring what she calls “UK returnee-actors” in their movies. 
 
Stressing further, she said “It’s so bad that the discrimination is now based on who speaks foreign accent fluently and talent is no longer the yardstick for selecting actors to feature in movies.

"Most of us who are based in the country have been ‘benched’ by the giant production companies simply because  they want to cast British-trained actors to shoot Nigerian version of American superhero film, ‘Black Panther,’" she bemoaned.

German footballer, Mesut Ozil retires from international football over racism and discrimination

German?footballer, Mesut Ozil retires from international football over racism and discrimination
Mesut Ozil has confirmed that he is retiring from international football with immediate effect following the "treatment he received from the DFB."

The Arsenal attacker claims that the way he has been treated by the German football association makes him "no longer want to wear the German national team shirt."

Ozil announced the decision in the third part of a lengthy statement released on his Twitter account, with the first part explaining the reasoning behind his controversial photograph with Turkey president Recep Erdogan and the second update criticising how the media and sponsors reacted to the incident.

DFB president Reinhard Grindel was the focus of the third and final part of the statement, as Ozil hit out at the official, claiming: "I will no longer stand for being a scapegoat for his incompetence and inability to do his job properly."  

Following Germany's disastrous World Cup performance, where they failed to get out of their groups and lost to both Mexico and South Korea, Ozil was heavily criticised by the media and by the DFB, with Grindel even urging the midfielder to make a public statement on his meeting with Erdogan, also questioning his credentials as an international player following the incident. 
Ozil detailed how Grindel attempted to benefit from the fall-out of the player's meeting with Erdogan, aiming to use it as a means to express his own political views and undermine Ozil in the process. He also accused the DFB president of racism, stating that "I am German when we win, but I am an immigrant when we lose."  

As well as Grindel, the 29-year-old highlighted the actions of politician Bernd Holzhauer who called Ozil a "goat-f***er" and Chief of German Theatre Werner Steer who wished for the footballer to "p*** back to Anatolia."

The way Ozil has been treated by German media, politicians and especially the DFB has caused him to make the "difficult decision" to announce his international retirement, saying that: "I now feel unwanted and think that what I have achieved since my international debut in 2009 has been forgotten."

In those nine years, Ozil has played 92 times for his country, scoring 23 goals. He was part of the side that lifted the 2014 World Cup and also helped Germany to the semi-finals of the 2012 and 2016 European Championships.

Ozil also went with Germany to the 2010 and 2018 World Cups and was named national team player of the year five times.

Cristiano Ronaldo 'Accepts' 2-year Suspended Prison Sentence To End Tax Scandal

Cristiano Ronaldo 'Accepts' 2-year Suspended Prison Sentence To End Tax Scandal
Cristiano Ronaldo
 
Cristiano Ronaldo has paid the Spanish tax man £12.1million and accepted a two-year suspended prison sentence., Dailymail UK reports.
 
It appears the 33-year-old Juventus forward is wasting no time clearing debts and cutting all ties with Madrid and Spain following his transfer from Real to Juve. There are also suggestions he plans to pull his business interests out of the capital.
 
Spanish radio station, Cadena Cope reported that Ronaldo has deposited the £12.1m and will also pay a further £4.7m in fines and costs. He will never have to serve the prison sentence because first offences for administrative crimes involving terms of two years or less are not custodial in Spain.
 
One of the primary reasons for leaving Spain has always been his anger at tax authorities for taking him to court for fiscal fraud and just one week after his departure to Italy he has wiped his debt with the treasury.
 
The player is also understood to have put his £4.8m Madrid mansion in the exclusive ‘La Finca’ neighbourhood on the market and is seriously contemplating closing all his business interests in the Spanish capital.
 
It is a dramatic cutting of ties that could include abandoning a hotel project in the city’s emblematic avenue ‘Gran Via’.
 
Ronaldo, in a joint venture with Portuguese company Pestana, had gained a building license earlier this year to convert one of Gran Via’s historic buildings into a 160-room luxury hotel with roof-top bar but Portuguese media now say that project could be shelved.
 
Ronaldo has always protested his innocence against claims he wilfully deceived the Spanish treasury by not declaring image-rights earnings between 2011 and 2014.
 
He was furious at being treated like a criminal despite the fact he voluntarily made attempts to put his tax affairs in order in 2014 by making an extra payment of £5m.
 
He felt the prosecution’s accusation was a result of a difference of interpretation of Spain’s complicated tax laws on image rights and should not have resulted in criminal proceedings.
 
He was determined to leave Spain last summer but ended up staying because Real Madrid refused to lower his €1bn (£890m) release clause.
 
With the prospect of a new contract he then settled on staying in Spain and paying his tax debt, with the help of a new signing bonus, but when Madrid’s contract offer arrived in January it did not meet his expectations.
 
This summer they were willing to bring his release clause down and with Juventus paying Real Madrid £100m he was able to leave. He will earn significantly more in Italy, not least because the tax situation will be far more favourable in Italy.

Grammy award winning R&B singer, Toni Braxton has taken to her Instagram to share before and after photos of her engagement to rapper and co-founder of Cash Money Records, Birdman.

The two who first met back in 2002, officially appeared as a couple on the red carpet at the 2016 BET Awards.
When asked if his relationship with Toni Braxton was official on the Wendy Williams show, the rapper responded- “T, that’s my girl, my friend, my family… that’s my love, my soldier, my life… She’s my life. I love her to death.”

The pair first teased their fans about their engagement back in February during a trailer of reality TV show, ‘Braxton Family Values‘ where Toni happily told her sisters ‘I have an announcement to make… I’m engaged!’
Although there are not a lot of details about the wedding yet, the R&B crooner has been quoted as saying: ”This is my second wedding and I’m over 40 – It’s like Carrie Bradshaw, the last bride over 40 – so I want something that’s elegant and a little sexy. I’ve already done the beautiful bell dress at my first wedding,” she says of the planned black, white and red affair.
”This time, I want something that’s more vintage – ’20s and 30s like Great Gatsby-themed.”
