Actress Cobie Smulders has opened up about a cancer diagnosis she faced in secret when she was just 25.

Cobie, best known for her role as Robin on How I Met Your Mother, has revealed she underwent numerous surgeries over a two-year period after being diagnosed with the potentially terminal disease.

"I had tumours on both ovaries, and the cancer had spread into my lymph nodes and surrounding tissues," Cobie admits in the new issue of Women's Health, for which she posed topless as a cover star.

The diagnosis came as Cobie's acting career had just begun to take off, a year after HIMYM first premiered.

Thankfully, Cobie beat the disease and even became a mum for the first time at 27, when she welcomed her daughter Shaelyn, followed by a son in January of this year.

The actress and her husband Taran Killam kept the birth of their second child quiet, with Cobie casually revealing the news during a magazine interview a few weeks later. but not divulging her little one's name.

Despite overcoming her cancer, Cobie says she never feels completely safe from it. "I don't think I'll ever feel like I'm cancer-free,' she told Women's Health. 'Now that I'm five years out, I'm trying to think of it as a positive thing and what can I learn from it."

With an established TV acting career and a role in the new Avengers film to boot, Cobie's only advice to young people wanting to emulate her success would be to avoid overworking themselves.

"Just chill the F out, when you're young, you're so worried. I think I was in such a rush to grow up," she said. "I feel like I should've just chilled out, gone back to college for four years and just hung out. Or traveled around the world or something. Just not work so hard."

Sounds like solid advice to us…



How I Met Your Mother actress Cobie Smulders broke some exciting news on the red carpet earlier this week!

The star, best known for her role as Robin Scherbatsky on the long-running show, appeared at Sundance Film Festival where she casually mentioned to reporters that her three-week old baby was waiting for her at home. Cobie was at the festival to promote her upcoming film Unexpected when she revealed the happy news.

"I'm in Sundance and I have a 3-week-old baby, so I can certainly relate," Cobie said during a discussion about the film's motherhood theme. "It's my world at the moment, and it's just so prevalent in the world today."

Cobie was looking fabulous just weeks after giving birth, wearing a casual skater skirt and loose tee with brogues.

The actress and her comedian husband Taran Killam announced last October that they were expecting their second child. The couple married in September 2012 and have one daughter together, five-year-old Shaelyn Cado.

​Although Cobie didn't reveal the sex of her new little one, she had mentioned before giving birth that her and Taran were keen for it to be a "surprise" for them. And a surprise for us too, whenever we find out!



As avid How I Met Your Mother fans, we've come to think of the characters as our best pals.

So we're over the moon with the news that actress Cobie Smulders, who played Robin Scherbatsky on the show, is pregnant with baby number two. 

Of course, we'd prefer it if she was having a baby with Ted Mosby, but you can't have everything!

Cobie wed her husband, Saturday Night Live comedian Taran Killam, in 2012. The couple have one daughter together, five-year-old Shaelyn Cado.

A source close to the pair said they had been planning on having more children once Cobie's work commitments eased off. "They talked about growing their family once she was done with How I Met Your Mother and moved to New York," said the friend. 

Becoming a mother for the second time will no doubt be an easier adjustment, as Cobie no longer has the pressures of a full-time filming schedule since HIMYM ended earlier this year.

Speaking not long after Shaelyn's birth, Cobie said she was happy but tired. "I think I sleep an average of four hours a night now, so it's just like functioning on fumes sometimes. But it's the best." We're not sure we would have been quite so positive!

The actress said she was lucky to be in a position to have help handling her busy schedule. "It’s a lot of work and I feel extremely grateful because my job allows me a lot of flexibility and freedom… And financially I am able to have a lot of help around."

Congratulations to the growing family!



You know them to see and that person seems cool. You probably think the two of you might really hit it off and want to state this fact too. But you don’t want to come off too strong either, so you just wait for the perfect opportunity to move onto the next friendship stage.

Work colleagues, lecture buddies or you just both happen to go to the exact same coffee shop at the same time, every morning. This is the person that you always manage to start some conversation with. It could be about the weather or your favourite television programme, either ways the small talk is surprisingly enjoyable.

Your go to person for anything. They can provide you info on a certain topic or just be the one person you need to rant to about something or anything. No matter the scenario, work or college related, you’ve got each other’s back.

You’ve finally reached this stage and are not sure how it exactly happened, but it has. You know, you’ve officially become friends with this person, when you both make the effort to meet up outside designated work or college hours.

Best Friends
This is something that can take time or sometimes it can happen instantly. But how do you know you have a best friend in the first place? Well, a best friend is usually someone who understands you, more than you understand yourself. They’ve always got your back and let’s face it, you’re not sure where you would be without them.



How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris wasn’t having any of it when his Broadway performance was interrupted by an overzealous fan.

The female fan was said to have yelled out “I love you Neil!” during the actor’s performance of a transgender punk in the play Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

Neil yelled back instantly, “I’m doing something up here, motherf**ker!”

This earned the 40-year-old actor a massive round of applause from the audience.

Cringe for the fan!

A spokesperson for the actor said his outburst was all done in good fun and “fully in the context of the show”.

Harris plays an East German transgender rocker looking for love in a revival of the cult hit that originally opened off-Broadway in 1998 and was made famous on both stage and screen by actor John Cameron Mitchell.

Sounds really cool!



It’s official! A spin-off to How I Met Your Mother will be hitting a TV screen near you soon.

Indie film starlet, Greta Gerwig is set to star as Sally, a character described by producers as: “a female Peter Pan who has never grown up and has no idea where she’s going in life.”

The actress will also produce and co-write the show, which apparently will have a style more similar to HBO’s Girls than How I Met Your Mother. 

It is thought Sally will play a character similar to Ted Mosby, explaining to her kids how she met their father. However she will also be going through a divorce from a year long marriage at the time.

All we want to know is who is going to play the Barney character!
