An insider close to the situation reveals that the 25-year-old is stepping up to the plate and wants to help raise the baby.
The source continued to say Chris calls his alleged baby momma regularly and is willing to fly to Texas, where Nia and Royalty reside, to help out!
Sure, this news ruffled some feathers in Chris’ current life, but at least he’s apparently willing to do whatever he can to be a good parent!

This hasn’t been done in 51 years, since April 11,1964!
We’re not sure if Drake has a list of Beatles records he wants to break or something, but he also broke one of the foursome’s records when he had his 72nd charting hit with ILoveMakonnen‘s Tuesday remix.
And another record the 28-year-old Canadian broke, but that never belonged to the Beatles, is having 21 songs simultaneously on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, with over 85 Billboard Hot 100 songs total, which puts him in fifth place all-time.

The subject of Serial has just received a decision that may be a total game changer!
Adnan Syed was convicted in 2000 for the murder of his ex-girlfriend and has been serving a life sentence at Western Maryland state prison ever since.
But when the podcast Serial reopened the case on their own terms and became super popular – a lot of attention was brought back on the cold case.
And now the Maryland Court of Special Appeals totes approved his application for leave to appeal this past Friday on the basis that his former lawyer Christina Gutierrez was ineffective.

However this is only the first step in a very long process, but still this is great news for Syed.
It allows him and his lawyer to give some arguments to the court about why he should either receive a new trial or some other kind of resolution.
The appeal is now set to happen on June 2015.
Here’s what his lawyer C. Justin Brown said:
“It’s the first step in a pretty long process but we’re extremely happy.”
As to what might happen next, Serial host Sarah Koenig went into the specifics on that! She wrote:
“Now that the appellate court has granted this order, what happens next is that, in its June session, a panel of judges will hear oral arguments from Adnan’s side, and also from the state. Neither side can bring in new evidence or witnesses. Then the court will either deny or grant Adnan further relief. That relief could be a whole new trial in the circuit court, or it could be that the circuit court just has to allow Adnan to present new evidence, such as Asia McClain’s testimony.
No matter what the Court of Special Appeals rules, it’s quite possible the whole megillah ends up in Maryland’s highest court, the Court of Appeals. Because if this current panel of judges grants Adnan relief, the state is likely to appeal to the highest court; and likewise, if it denies Adnan relief, Adnan’s attorney will probably do the same. So it’s bound to grind on for a long while yet.”
Jeez! Sounds like all of this may not be resolved for a seriously long time.
But we doubt Adnan Syed is complaining after this decision in his favor. We’re sure he’s learned a lot of patience over the past fifteen years.
Stay tuned for June to roll around to see what might happen on the next episode of Serial, er, real life!

This girl really knows how to pull a leg!
Contrary to what everyone was thinking last week, AnnaLynne McCord and Rick Fox are not dating!
[ Related: AnnaLynne McCord Goes All Out With Her Curves For A Party Night ]
They seemed so close at a pre-Super Bowl event last week, that some people were led to believe the two were an item! However, AnnaLynne set the record straight during an interview with Boston Herald Radio on Friday. She said:
“Yes, isn’t he amazing? I started dating him 48 hours ago when that picture happened! This is brand new, and we’re going to get married tomorrow! I’m having quadruplets next week. We’re going to be divorced by February 15. It’s been a great relationship, I’ve had a wonderful journey, [and] it will be amicable when we split.”
LOLz! Too funny!
That doesn’t explain why people overheard AnnaLynne calling Rick her “boyfriend” but maybe it was just more sarcasm.
Either way, we still think these two would make a gorgeous couple. Maybe they should consider rekindling their imaginary love flame!

Wow, we’re so relieved!
Thankfully for our eyes and Farrah Abraham‘s face, the reality star’s CRAZY swollen lips are finally back to normal after a botched January 6 surgery.

At a hosting gig on Saturday night, the Teen Mom‘s glossed smackers looked proportional and surprisingly AVERAGE!
According to Farrah, the insane swelling occurred when her doctor ATTEMPTED to put in the lip implant. Since the medicine administered during the procedure caused a horrific allergic reaction, the plump piece was never actually inserted.
We’re glad Abraham’s body has recovered from the allergic reaction and we hope she learned a valuable lesson from the terrible experience!

FOX has a hit on its hands!
The new hip-hop drama Empire may have only aired two episodes so far, but it’s not going anywhere anytime soon.
That’s because the Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard series was just renewed for a second season on Saturday!
The news doesn’t come as a total shock, considering the premiere was a huge success with a staggering 9.9 million viewers.

But that’s not all… the second episode did even better with 10.3 million tuning in!
In addition to Empire, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Gotham were also given third and second seasons, respectively.
We’re not surprised people are liking the show, though. Lee Daniels did create it after all!
FOX hasn’t had a show debut as strong as Empire in three years, so we can’t wait to see what Cookie and Co. get up to in 2016!
