Grammy winner Justin Timberlake announced Saturday that he and his wife, actress Jessica Biel, have a baby on the way.
Timberlake, who also celebrated his 34th birthday Saturday, posted a photo on Instagram that shows him kissing Biel's baby bump.
"Thank you EVERYONE for the Bday wishes! This year, I'm getting the GREATEST GIFT EVER. CAN'T WAIT," the post read.
Naturally, fans were unable to contain their excitement (and, in some cases, jealousy).
America is about to consume an absolutely ridiculous amount of chicken wings.
The National Chicken Council estimates Americans will consume 1.25 billion wings on Super Bowl Sunday.
But consuming that much chicken will be pricey because ... well, there are only so many chickens.
Last year, chicken breeders had an issue with roosters being too fat to breed, leading to a reduction in chickens raised for slaughter this year.
The smaller supply of chickens, combined with the incredible demand surrounding the Super Bowl, has caused the price of wings to jump 6.6 percent just this month to $1.69 a pound.
But there is some good news for wing lovers. Bloomberg reports farmers have been giving their chickens extra feed to compensate for some of the shortage, so your Super Bowl wings will probably be pretty meaty.
And you'll spend even more on wings if you're going out to watch the game.
Buffalo Wild Wings already raised its wing prices by 3 percent because of the increased cost of chicken.
And one New York restaurant takes the cake when it comes to expensive wings.
An order of Old Homestead Steakhouse's caviar covered Super Bowl wings costs $4,900. Though this is more about refined taste than a supply shortage.Sun, 01 Feb 2015 01:31:22 -0500
An Appalachian State University student died Friday night, according to police.
Officials said just before 9:15 p.m. Boone police, fire, and Watauga Medics responded to 325 Yosef Drive for a medical emergency.
Michael Schmitt, 23, was found in distress and transported to Watauga Medical Center where he died.
There is no indication of foul play at this time, police said.
The investigation is continuing.

Earlier this month, a student at the university died in a vehicle crash and another was found dead in her dorm room.
Three other students were found dead the previous semester. Investigators have found no evidence of foul play in the deaths.
