“One thing you do learn is how many other people have had to go through the same,” Mike, 38, said of sharing the news.
He also revealed that the couple’s 3-year-old daughter Mia has been helping them cope.
“The saving grace for us has been Mia, our daughter who is now 3,” he said. “However down we feel she will come running up in our faces. When I was playing I hardly saw her; now we can see her grow up. I can take her swimming and I can take her to Ninja Tots. You’ll never be able to see her there because she disappears in a puff of smoke.”

Mia is known for stealing the show — getting cuddles and kisses from Zara’s cousin Prince Harry at polo events and happily displaying great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth II’s purse during official photo shoots.
The family’s miscarriage news came at a particularly stressful time for the royals as Zara’s grandparents the Queen and Prince Philip were battling heavy colds, causing them to miss on some of the public Christmas traditions they usually took part in, like the annual royal walk to church on the Queen’s Sandringham Estate.
Zara and Mike both put on a brave face two weeks after their announcement, holding hands and smiling in their first appearance since the miscarriage news at a polo event in Australia on Jan. 8.
Phaedra Parks ended season 9 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta in hot water, when she owned up to spreading drugging accusations about Kandi Burruss to Porsha Williams — therefore fueling the season’s most dramatic and damaging drama.
And to think, it all could have been avoided had Parks listened to her fellow Atlanta Housewives as she tried to repair her once close-friendship with Burruss.
On Sunday’s all-new “Secrets Revealed” episode, fans got to see unseen footage of Parks during the season — including one scene in which castmates Cynthia Bailey, Shereé Whitfield, Porsha Williams, and Kenya Moore tried to bring the two women back together.
Shot after Parks and Burruss’ tense private dinner — and well before Williams ever brought the drugging accusations to Burruss — the scene showed Parks admitting to mistakes she had made with Burruss in the past.
“The conversation sort of went awry because she brought up things that had happened in the past and that’s not what I was there for,” Parks first explained of her meeting with Burruss, where the two spoke about digs Parks had made about Burruss’ husband Todd Tucker.
“I will say this, maybe I was being petty,” Parks continued. “But she never apologized about stuff that I’m like, ‘Unbelievable.’ I’ve been accused of turning her into the feds!”
Moore — who has had her own issues with Parks — provided Parks with the clearest advice for how Parks and Burruss could move forward.
“You mess with her family, those are fighting words. So how do you think she’s going to recover for that?” she asked Parks. “You never say, ‘You know what, that comment I made about Todd was way below the belt. And I know how you feel about your husband, and I know I went there and I’m going to apologize to you for that.’ When a person doesn’t receive that, sometimes they can’t move on or move forward.”
Bailey backed Moore up too. “What real grown woman do at the end of the day is say, ‘You know what — I know you can’t stand mad right now. You don’t have to love me after, but at least respect the fact that I am truly apologizing to you and I am truly truly sorry for how I made you feel,’ ” she said.

Parks seemed opened to it at first — though Moore questioned whether she was really absorbing her advice.
“It’s hard to read Phaedra,” Moore told viewers. “Sometimes I look to her in this moment and think she’s getting it. But the other side of me just feels like she just doesn’t think that she’s wrong.”
Sadly, Moore was right as her and Bailey’s words fell on deaf ears with Parks. “My life is too big and too wonderful to be thinking about what’s going on with Kandi,” Parks confessed. “I could care less.”
She did care, though — repeating accusations she claims she heard from an unnamed source to Williams who said Burruss and Tucker had planned on drugging Williams and their mutual friend Shamea Morton in order to take advantage of them sexually.
Though Williams repeated it, she revealed on the reunion she had only done so because Parks had told her she heard the information first-hand from Burruss. “Oh God, that’s so awful,” Williams said, sobbing. “I swear to God Kandi — I would never ever say something like that to you if it wasn’t told to me in truth in confidence.”
Since the reunion, Parks and Williams haven’t spoken — with Williams revealing on Dish Nation recently that she doesn’t know if she’ll ever be able to get over Parks’ betrayal.
“It’s difficult because I love Phaedra. She was like my best friend,” Williams said. “Someone I talked to on the phone every single day. And for me to feel like she had betrayed me like that. And the fact that I was sitting right there and watched her continue to lie on me about it.”

No matter what happens next, fans of RHOA are hoping the Parks/Williams/Burruss drama leads to the end of the repetition of unconfirmed gossip on the show. It’s something that’s long been a problem in all of the Housewives franchises, but especially Atlanta.
Why, even Parks herself ironically called out the issue on Sunday’s “Secret’s Revealed” — as Bailey’s ex-husband Peter Thomas confronted Williams on the cheating accusations she’s spread about him.
“People have lose lips in this group,” she said during a tense group dinner in Maui, Hawaii. “They say a lot of stuff that’s not factual.”
Let’s hope that trend ends now.
A new Miss USA has been crowned!
Kara McCullough, 25, from the District of Columbia, took home the coveted title on Sunday night during the live competition in Las Vegas.
McCullough was named the winner over first runner-up Miss New Jersey, Chhavi Verg, and second runner-up Miss Minnesota, Meridith Gould.
McCullough is a nuclear scientist at the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Her win gives the District of Columbia back-to-back victories in the competition, after Deshauna Barber took home the crown last year.
Barber came out to crown McCullough, and gave a tribute to her mom during the Mother’s Day broadcast, who passed away from lung cancer three months into her reign as Miss USA. Barber wore her hair in its natural state in honor of her mom.
During the questions portion of the competition, McCullough was asked if affordable healthcare is a right or a privilege. She responded that healthcare should only go to those with jobs, and one of the country’s goals should be to create more jobs so more people have healthcare.
Twitter was divided over her response.

Dang I wanted Miss D.C to win but I’m sorry affordable health care is not a privilege. Health care should be a human right! #MissUSA

All three finalists were also asked about their definition of feminism, and if they consider themselves a feminist. McCullough said she prefers not to use the word “feminist,” and instead “transferred the word feminist to equalism.”
“I don’t want to call myself a feminist,” McCullough said. “Women, we are just as equal as men, especially in the workplace.”
…so DC has no idea what feminism means. #MissUSA

It’s incredibly sad that in 2017, a woman is striving to occupy a position of influence w/ no understanding of what feminism is. #MissUSA

The crown has been passed from an army captain to a scientist. Now that’s what I call feminism. Congratulations D.C. #MissUSA

Sunday’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians picked up where things left off last week, with Kris Jenner and her daughters confronting Disick for going behind their backs and bringing a woman on their family trip to Costa Rica.
“I think what we’re wondering is if you have a girl here and why?” demanded Kris, 61, during a family dinner.
Disick, 33, argued that he was just “trying to move on” from his ex Kourtney, 38, but she wasn’t having any of it.
“On a family vacation, don’t you think it’s inappropriate and disrespectful?” she demanded. “To me, to your kids and to all my family? There’s a level of respect and appropriateness that should just be known, but apparently it’s not.”
Disick admitted that he “did something wrong — as always,” but Kourtney shut him down yet again.
“Stop playing the victim,” she said. “You had your chance. I thought we were spending our whole lives together, and I’ve done everything I can.”
As the women went on to slam him for not being able to behave himself for four days, Disick decided to come out with what he later admitted was “the first thing that popped into” his head: that he’s a sex addict.
“If you need to get your d— wet that badly, then get your f—ing d— wet,” responded Khloé, 32, dumping her glass of water all over him and storming off. Kris and Kim, 37, both followed suit, leaving Disick dripping wet as the meal came to an end.
But, of course, it was all in good fun, for the most part — the following morning, Disick patched things up with the family, starting with Khloé, who jokingly asked him if he enjoyed his “shower yesterday” but admitted she could never stay angry for too long.
“It’s totally hard to stay mad at Scott,” she said. “ were texting the whole night and he was so remorseful and felt like a piece of s—.”
“Scott’s so lucky, because I am the coolest baby mama on the planet,” said Kourtney. “The stuff that he’s done and I still allow him to come on our family trips? … I just feel like I need to have a conversation with him just to finally say we will never be back together. It’s probably better for both of us.”

Later that day, the family went tubing down a river in the jungle, but Kris and Kim decided to skip out on the activity. A beach day was also in the works, but when the family spotted a boat with paparazzi out on the water, they opted to stay at their villa instead.
“When you travel so far to relax and be with the family … the last thing you want to do is find pictures on the internet of our vacation,” said Kris. “So to see them right out there with a boat and a big a— lens is unnerving.”
Soon enough, Khloé started to get frustrated with the way her family had splintered off into small groups on the trip and decided to confront Kim about it.
“These just aren’t what they used to be,” she said. “Everyone is so concerned about all these other things now. … It’s honestly a really f—ed up way to live. I go on these trips hoping we’re going to bond .. .and I’m learning that the older we’re getting it’s just not working out that way. I haven’t seen Kylie on this trip, I don’t know what the f— Mom is doing.”
Kim responded by pointing out that Khloé was being “negative,” “hostile,” and “snappy” — all of which didn’t go over well, prompting her sister to storm out of the room.
Kim later returned to talk things over with Khloé, this time bringing Kris and Kourtney along. Khloé reiterated how she felt, arguing that Kylie Jenner and Tyga were “locked away in their room,” Kim doesn’t “like to do any activities” and Kris and her boyfriend Corey Gamble were always off doing their own thing. The argument began to escalate as Kim grew more and more frustrated.
“This is what I can’t handle,” said Kim. “You’re so annoying. You’re the negative one, just saying how awful we are. You’re like a big bully.”
Meanwhile, Kourtney had her own separate set of issues to deal with and decided the time had come to have the conversation she’d been wanting to have with Disick.
“I think something I’ve learned on this trip that is that we need to just move on,” she told him as the two lounged by the pool with their kids.
“Perfect!” said Disick sarcastically.
“I think the moral of the story is we are never getting back together,” she added.
“That’s all I’ve ever wanted you to say,” he responded.
“After everything that’s happened here in Costa Rica, Scott knows that it’s done,” said Kourtney later. “But just saying those words lets both of us move on. It’s done.”

As the trip was approaching its end, Kim decided to make one last effort to patch things over with her sister.
“I know that Khloé put in so much work to plan this vacation … so I don’t want her to feel separate or alone, and I don’t want to ruin this trip over a stupid fight,” she said, eventually crashing one of Khloé’s workout sessions to hang out, which Khloé later called the “peak” of her trip.
On their last night, the family enjoyed dinner together down by the water, going around the table one by one and revealing their pits and peaks of the vacation.
“My pit is that Kanye’s not here, and my peak is that I get an amazing vacation with the kids and my family,” said Kim.
“My peak was tubing and doing the waterslides and spending time with my kids and family,” said Kourtney, adding with a laugh that her pit was “the anxiety going to the confrontational dinner” with Disick.
“The one thing that we have as a family is each other,” said Kris. “It’s really nice to come together on these vacations, no mater how old the kids get, and just reconnect.” (And of course, it wouldn’t be a Kardashian vacation without a photo shoot — and this time it was Kourtney, naked. More on that here.)
But it wasn’t over yet — while everyone returned home after the trip, Kim had to fly straight to New York to meet with a French judge and attorneys to testify in her Paris robbery case. The grueling testimony ended up lasting eight hours, and Kim discovered that the perpetrators had not only been following her for an entire year leading up to the heist, but had actually planned on robbing her during another trip to Paris prior to the October trip. (They didn’t end up doing so because they found out she was with her husband Kanye West.)
At the end of the day, though, Kim was relieved that to finally be putting the traumatic experience behind her.
“I’m really happy that I got it over with and it’s done, because no matter what, it would have happened to me,” she said. “I’m honestly thankful for this experience … so that I can prepare and protect myself even more in the future.”
Keeping Up with the Kardashians airs Sundays (9 p.m. ET) on E!
“Do I get a vote? Then yes, absolutely I could see that,” he says. “I could see one out of five happening, I can’t divulge that right now, but he’s in the top five.”
The two did lock lips in the film’s newest trailer, after all.
That said, the buff actor, 44, is nowhere near ready to give up his official designation. “No one can really compare,” he says of his own sexiness, “I will be forever that. I have it tattooed!”

As to how the sexy distinction has changed his life, Johnson says, “I drop that card everywhere I go, everywhere I go. I’m getting ready to go into negotiations for anything, any big project, business affairs and attorneys get involved, but I’m like, ‘Okay, here’s the thing, I’m the Sexiest Man Alive, make the deal.’ ”
Those negotiation skills may help Johnson in the future, as he previously told PEOPLE that he wants to be the first Sexiest Man Alive to become president.
Baywatch, which opens May 25, features Johnson as legendary character Mitch Buchanan (previously played by David Hasselhoff), who butts heads with Efron’s Olympic-swimming character Matt Brody when he’s brought on to improve the lifeguarding image.
