She fell pregnant with her son, Elijah, when she was just 19.

And on Wednesday, former Bachelor star Alex Nation revealed that her child was conceived after a one-night stand with her boss at the time.

‘[Elijah was] A big whoopsie, but the best whoopsie ever,’ the 28-year-old said on Mamamia’s Me After You podcast.

‘We had an office fling and it was just one night of flirting, passion and excitement – and then six weeks later I found out I was pregnant,’ she added.

Elijah’s father, Joel Porter, was then aged 23. Despite his young age, he stepped up to the plate and embraced the idea of being a father.  

‘I take my hat off to him because he was so amazing and so supportive from day one and he just owned the whole dad life,’ Alex said.

Alex and Joel briefly married after she gave birth to Elijah in 2011, before splitting later that year.

After a few tumultuous years, they are now on good terms and remain committed to co-parenting their son.

The exes even surprised Elijah by taking a family trip to Bali in December for his ninth birthday.

In June 2019, Alex revealed how far the pair’s relationship had come since their split.

She shared a photo to Instagram of herself and Joel having lunch together, which she captioned: ‘There was a time where this fella and I couldn’t sit across from each other without having a heated discussion.

‘We both had a lot of growing to do and we needed to work on a few things. I am so thankful for Joel and the relationship we have now.’

Alex explained that the former couple had found a way co-parent amicably, despite still having their disagreements from time to time.

‘It’s special that Elijah has two parents that love him so much and are willing to work hard to co-parent and have a great, healthy friendship with each other,’ she wrote.

‘To be real, it can be really f**king hard and it does take work and we are continually working at this. You’re an awesome ex-husband and an better dad.’    

Alex rose to fame on season four of The Bachelor in 2016. She won the heart of rope-access technician Richie Strahan, but their relationship fizzled out a year later.

britains got talent magical bones is through to final after an act inspired by a former slave

The latest act to earn a place in the Britain’s Got Talent Final has been revealed as magician Magical Bones.

Performing during Saturday’s episode, the star captivated the judges as he revealed the secret behind a trick and then made his long-distance girlfriend appear.

After his act, which was inspired by former slave Henry Box Brown, Magical Bones was told by David Walliams the set was one of the best routines he’d EVER seen.

Heading to the final! Magical Bones, 37, won a spot in the final after wowing the judges with his magic act which was inspired by a former slave on Saturday's BGT semi-final

Judge Alesha Dixon was also impressed, telling Magical Bones in her feedback that his routine was unique.

She said: ‘The fact that you’re a black man up here doing what you’re doing, we’ve never had that before…The audience loved it, we loved it!’

The magician beat acrobatic dance crew X1X, who pre-recorded their routine earlier this week from India, and blind 15-year-old Sirine Jahangir to get to the final.

Magical Bones revisited his audition and the figure of Henry Box Brown for the semi-final, in an effort to make a big impact and show he had developed as a performer. 

Wow! During the show, Magical Bones also made his girlfriend Mel appear on the stage after he had explained they had spent lockdown apart with her living in Canada with their son

Henry Box Brown was a black man who was born into slavery in the United States but after hiding in a box he managed to escape and get to England.

Speaking ahead of the performance Magical Bones said: ‘I have a lot of common in Henry -he used magic to escape physically and me, I use it to escape reality.’    

The performer also revealed in the lead-up that he’s not seen his girlfriend Mel or their young son Ty since lockdown started as they’re in Canada.

Magical Bones said: ‘We talk everyday, but it’s no substitute. So tonight I’ll be channeling Henry Box Brown again and his message of hope. 

Smooth: He started the routine off by doing a short dance routine, saying his inspiration Henry Box Brown was a showman as well as a magician

‘Henry was a showman as well as a magician, he would start his performances with flare.’

Waisting no more time to get the action happening, Magical Bones burst into a smooth dance routine before saying he’d be showing the audience something Henry may have done ‘back in the day’.

He performed a trick called The Great Door Mystery which involved making a woman called Katie appear from inside what appears to be an empty door frame.   

But Magical Bones really put his own spin on things as he launched into the next part of his act.

Magical Bones said: ‘Now for the first time in a BGT semi-final, I’m going to show the secret of how the illusion was done. I’ll be going behind the scenes so everyone can see how illusion works.’

Inspiration: The star explained how he Henry Box Brown (pictured) was a black man who was born into slavery in the US but after hiding in a box managed to escape and get to England

The magician then span the stage’s set around so Katie was behind the door and got the virtual audience to be projected on the back screen, making it the front.  

With the space reversed – and the judges who first saw the trick from the front now seeing how it worked as if from the back – Magical Bones began.  

They then watched as Katie expertly moved between a selection of doors so that she couldn’t be seen while Magical Bones worked the projected virtual audience.  

Magical Bones said: ‘And that’s how you make a girl appear from nowhere!’

However it was his next trick which really had everyone amazed. Magical Bones said: ‘For me real magic is about connecting with people, with family. So if i was a real magician i’d do this – “hey Mel lets try something really magical”‘

Emotions: The performer and judges got emotional when Mel and their son appeared on stage

All of a sudden the magician’s girlfriend, who had been seen in a video projected on stage, appeared on stage when the wooden doors fell down. 

Unsurprisingly, the judges were full of compliments for Magical Bones.

Alesha said: ‘The fact that you’re a black man up here doing what you’re doing, we’ve never had that before…The audience loved it, we loved it! 

While Amanda added: ‘You delivered with such confidence and ease, and I had no idea you were such a good dancer! 

‘I started the act worried for you and your gorgeous girlfriend and son not being with you but then I just died of joy when she appeared! You deserve every bit of success!’

Up next: After being revealed as the this weeks semi-final winner, Magical Bones hinted that he's got even bigger plans for the final on October 10

Ashley was also impressed saying: ‘That’s how you elevate from auditions! I feel like I see an act that is complete – innovation, presentation – you’ve set the bar!’

Before David added to the compliments by telling Magical Bones: ‘Well, you had me when your ankles were behind your head, that was extraordinary in its self! 

‘It just had everything! It was one of the best magic acts I’ve ever seen in my life, not just on BGT.’

And Magical Bones was also pleased with how brilliantly his act went, with him telling Ant and Dec he was ‘blown away, over the moon’ with the performance.

He added: ‘It means so much to represent as a black man, Henry Box Brown was the first black magician in the UK, it’s an honour to do this today.’

So sweet: Blind singer and piano player Sirine Jahangir, 15, also impressed the judges and had to wipe away tears as she finished up her song

Magical Bones made it to the judges final three on the night alongside X1X, and blind singer and piano player Sirine Jahangir.

Deciding who should get the final place, David, Alesha and Ashley all voted for Magical Bones.

David said: ‘We couldn’t have more different acts, but the one which will stay with me for a long long time and felt was most original was Magical Bones.’ 

Alesha agreed, saying: ‘I love all three of these acts, I’d personally love to see in the final. This is by far toughest decision. Ok, I’m going with my gut and that’s telling me the act I want to see in the final is Magical Bones.’

However head judge Amanda, who has been promoted to the position while Simon Cowell recovered from his back injury, said although she loved Magical Bones she would have gone for Sirine. 

As for the other contestants on Saturday night, drag queen Myra Dubois, classical group Ember Trio, choir Sign With Us, Dario the dinosaur and singer Bhim Nirolua will face the public vote.

So talented: Amanda was particularly impressed with classical group Ember Trio who used deconstructed instruments to perform a medley, which the head judged called 'sexy'

Lima, whose disastrous seven-month marriage to Colt Johnson was documented on the hit TLC reality show, was arrested twice in 2018 for domestic battery. 

Ultimately, the charges were dismissed after her first arrest and she was never charged for the second. 

On the same day her ex-husband filed for divorce from her in January 2019, she was arrested and charged with first-degree domestic battery during an alleged altercation with him.

In May 2019, her lawyer revealed to Us Weekly her charges ‘were set to be reduced down to disorderly conduct upon successful completion of her requirements.’ 

Earlier this week, Lima unveiled her new body after undergoing a dramatic plastic surgery makeover.

In an effort to look like Kylie Jenner, she underwent $72,000 worth cosmetic surgeries earlier this year, including breast implants, fat transfer to her butt, liposuction for her waist, hips and abs area, a nose job, fillers, Botox and laser facials.

She has a daughter from another relationship, who is also lives in her native country of Brazil.

The post comes as Depp received word Friday from a Virginia court that there will indeed be a delay in the defamation trial he is bringing against Heard in the American courts… but not for the reason he had intended.

As reported by Deadline, Circuit Court Chief Judge Bruce White has delayed the trial from January 11, 2021 to to May 3, 2021 – due to continued concerns over coronavirus. 

The text read, in part: 'I just wanted to thank you all once again for your constant and loyal support throughout many long and interesting episodes of my life'

Depp had initially filed a motion on August 21 to have the upcoming $50M defamation trial delayed so he could begin filming Fantastic Beasts 3 in London.

The Cry Baby actor filed court documents in a Fairfax County, Virginia court requesting the trial be delayed until anywhere between March and June of 2021, once filming was completed.

His ex Amber, 34, in turn filed a motion opposing the request. 

The court had initially set the trial to run from January 11, 2021 to January 28, 2021, though Warner Bros. recently revealed they plan to start filming Fantastic Beasts 3 in October in London, which will run through the end of February.
