Ryan Murphy and husband David Miller have much to celebrate.

On Saturday, Murphy, the renowned screenwriter, producer and director, marked their son Ford’s sixth birthday with a heartfelt message that touched on their boy’s courageous recovery from cancer.  

‘Much love and respect to our warrior Ford Theodore Miller Murphy, who battled neuroblastoma cancer at 18 months and survived and thrived and today celebrated his SIXTH birthday,’ Murphy began in an Instagram post along with an adorable photo of Ford snuggled up in an animal print sleeping bag and stuffed cheetah head.

Murphy also took time to thank the doctors and helpers who treated their son at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles with ‘love and care’.  

‘There is in fact a wing with Ford’s name on it to honor his spirit and all the children who are still in the fight,’ he wrote in reference to the $10 million donation he made in his son’s honor. 

The six-time Emmy winner ended his emotional statement by explaining the big beaming smile on his son’s face in the photo. 

‘Ford loves jungle animals…thus the cheetah sleeping bag. We love you, Fordie.’

Many hours later Murphy took to Instagram again and shared a cute photo of Ford standing poolside with his arms raised in the air with joy. 

‘King of The Day…Ford at 6,’ Murphy wrote in the caption of the snap that also had the word ‘happy birthday’ written across it in multiple colors.  

Ford was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a type of pediatric cancer that starts in nerve cells and is most often found in an embryo or fetus, in 2016, according to American Cancer Society.

He underwent multiple procedures to battle the cancer before being deemed cancer free in a statement by Murphy in October 2019.

John Cena reportedly fell in ‘love at first sight’ with his new wife Shay Shariatzadeh, who he secretly wed during a ceremony held in Tampa, Florida in early October. 

The WWE star instantly ‘knew’ he would marry the 29-year-old engineer, who he began dating in 2019, so the news ‘wasn’t a surprise’ to their loved ones, according People

‘He is a romantic,’ an entertainment source told the outlet, noting the 43-year-old actor ‘just wanted to do it out of the limelight.’

The newlyweds, who met while Cena was filming his 2019 comedy Playing With Fire in Canada, got engaged in secret and exchanged vows on October 12, via TMZ.

Cena was previously married to Elizabeth Huberdeau from July 2009, until they split in May 2012, with the divorce finalized in July.

He started dating WWE Diva Nikki Bella later in 2012, with Cena popping the question to her at WrestleMania 33 in April 2017.

However the couple called off their engagement in April 2018, less than a month before they were slated to be married in May 2018.

Cena and Bella reportedly split because she wanted to have kids and Cena didn’t, with Bella giving birth to her first child, Matteo Artemovich Chigvintsev, with fiancé Artem Chigvintsev. 

Cena and Shariatzadeh seemingly got serious fairly quickly into their relationship and are often packing on the PDA in public.

Shariatzadeh was born in Iran, but was raised in Canada and is a Canadian citizen, and works as a product manager for a tech company in Vancouver.

Cena hasn’t publicly said anything about the nuptials at this time, nor has Shariatzadeh.

The wrestler recently appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to promote his new children’s book, Elbow Grease.

The book was published on October 9, which, ‘illustrates the importance of believing in yourself and never giving up.’

Cena has a number of projects in the works, including the new Fast & Furious installment F9 as Jakob Toretto, the brother of Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto.

He also plays The Peacemaker in another highly-anticipated sequel, The Suicide Squad, also arriving next year.

He also stars in Vacation Friends with Meredith Hagner and Lil Rel Howrey, and The Janson Directive based on the Robert Luldlum novel.

SAS Australia: Roxy Jacenko reacts to Ant Middleton’s chequered past

sas australia roxy jacenko reacts to ant middletons chequered past

SAS Australia star Roxy Jacenko has spoken out about Ant Middleton’s chequered history, after the former British solider’s controversial past resurfaced this week.

A recent article by Daily Mail Australia unearthed some of Middleton’s controversies, including his divisive tweets and a four-month prison stint for assaulting a policewoman outside a nightclub in 2013.

Speaking at the Honey Birdette swimwear launch in Sydney on Wednesday, PR guru Roxy said ‘we’ve all got pasts’ when asked about the ex-Royal Marine’s scandals.

‘Without knowing the full details of what he has or hasn’t done, I think everyone needs to give everyone a chance,’ the 40-year-old told Daily Mail Australia.

‘Like my husband – just because he went to jail, it doesn’t mean that he shouldn’t have a future.’

Roxy’s husband, former investment banker Oliver Curtis, spent a year behind bars for insider trading and now works for his wife’s PR empire.

The publicist, 40, left the competition after just six hours during the launch episode on Monday, and was shortly followed by convicted drug smuggler Schapelle Corby.

‘In terms of his chequered past… I think we’ve all got pasts,’ she added. ‘Look at Schapelle [Corby] – she also has a past. But good on her for going on, and trying to turn her life around.’

Middleton caused outrage earlier this year when he boasted that he was flouting social distancing guidelines during the coronavirus pandemic.

He was also stood down from his mentoring role as the Royal Navy’s Chief Cadet after calling Black Lives Matter protesters ‘absolute scum’ on Twitter.

His string of controversies began in 2013, when he assaulted officer PC Katherine Alison outside an Essex nightclub.

He was sentenced to 14 months in prison for the attack, of which he served four months due to good behaviour.

In January this year, Middleton’s appointment as Chief Cadet of the Royal Marines’ Volunteer Cadet Corps was condemned by Alison. Her friends told Mail on Sunday she remains traumatised by the incident.

She reportedly suffered whiplash injuries as a result of the incident and was withdrawn from frontline duties. She was later transferred away from Essex Police.

In 2015, Middleton failed to declare he had been jailed while being vetted by TV producers for the hit UK reality show SAS: Who Dares Wins.

However, it appears that Middleton did declare his criminal record to Australian authorities, otherwise he would have been barred from entering the country.

In March, at the onset of the Covid pandemic, he boasted he was continuing with life as usual and was ignoring social distancing advice – and said fans should be ‘grateful’ if they caught it.

He said in a video shared to Instagram: ‘Am I still out travelling the world? Yes. Am I still shaking hands? Yes. Am I still cuddling fans at the airport? Yes. Am I washing my hands and keeping my hygiene to a high standard as always? Yes.

‘Has my life changed? No. Am I going to let some disease, COVID-19, dictate my life? Absolutely not. Get out there, don’t change, f**k COVID-19!’

In June, Middleton offered his opinion on the Black Lives Matter movement and compared it to the far-right English Defence League.

He wrote on Twitter: ‘The extreme left against the extreme right.

‘When did two wrongs make a right. It was only a matter of time. BLM and EDL are not welcome on our streets, absolute scum. What a great example you are to your future generation. Bravo.’

In August, Middleton quit as the Royal Navy’s Chief Cadet after just nine months following the controversial tweet.

The TV tough guy, who took on the role in November 2019, was said to have left his bosses furious after posting the since-deleted tweet, amid protests over racial injustice after the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man, in the U.S.

He later apologised for his actions, saying: ‘I am horrified to realise that my wording could be misconstrued. I did not mean to say that BLM are scum, or to imply that BLM and the EDL are equivalent.

‘I was trying to make a comment about violent protesters of any kind who I despise. I accept that my tweet was inappropriate and offensive and would like to apologise unconditionally. I am anti-racist, anti-hate and anti-violence.’

His tweet had a long-lasting effect as the Mail on Sunday claimed in August that Middleton had been given the boot by charity football match Soccer Aid 2020 amid fears that his involvement would offend ethnic minority players.

It was unclear whether organisers kicked out Middleton at the request of other players or to protect the image of the match, which attracts significant corporate sponsorship and support from the British government.

A spokesman for Middleton confirmed at the time that he would no longer be taking part in the Soccer Aid event.

Middleton joined the British Army aged 17 in 1997, and served in the Royal Marines from 2005 to 2012.

He was thrust into the spotlight after becoming the Chief Instructor on Channel 4’s SAS: Who Dares Wins. The military-style reality show has aired every year since, and was recently adapted by Channel Seven for Australian viewers.

Jade Thirlwall will miss Little Mix: The Search’s first live show on Saturday as she’s forced to self-isolate, the BBC has announced.

The broadcaster shared a statement to Twitter on Wednesday which revealed the musician, 27 – who, like her bandmates Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Perrie Edwards, has tested negative for coronavirus – will coach via video link.

The competition series was postponed earlier this month when a ‘small number’ of crew members contracted the virus.

The statement read: ‘Jade has to self-isolate this week and will therefore be carrying out her role as Mentor on Little Mix The Search from home.

‘For this Saturday’s show, Jade will participate via video link, continuing to mentor alongside Jesy, Leigh-Anne and Perrie.’  

People in the UK self-isolate if they show any symptoms or are tested positive for COVID-19. They also quarantine if someone they live with or a member of their support bubble catch the virus.

Later in the day, songstress Jade posted a fierce snap to Instagram of herself sporting a sparkly personalised hat to promote her band’s new single Happiness.

A representative for Little Mix declined to comment further when contacted by MailOnline.   

Despite mixing with the crew members in question, artists Jade, Perrie, 27, Jesy and Leigh-Anne, both 29, have gotten the all-clear. 

‘They’ve all tested negative and do not need to isolate,’ a source told The Sun. ‘They will be regularly tested throughout the run of the series.’

A spokesperson for the BBC added: ‘We can confirm that a small number of people on the Little Mix The Search production have tested positive for coronavirus and they are now self-isolating following the latest government guidelines. 

‘Due to the format of the show we have made the decision to postpone Saturday’s programme. 

‘There are rigorous protocols in place to manage Covid-19 as the safety of all those involved in the production is paramount. We hope to be back on air on Saturday 24 October.’
