Every now and again, we read the results of scientific surveys and our blood boils enough that the steam contributes to global warming. This latest survey has succeeded in causing such rage.

Apparently, men spend HOURS hiding in the toilet from ‘nagging wives’, kids and household chores and suffer from a lack of ‘me-time’. Really? Like, in all seriousness?

Considering they don’t have to put in tampons or sanitary pads, we often wondered what can take some men so long in the bathroom, but now we know the answers.

Men are viewing bathrooms as their safe haven from the chaos of family life, retreating to the sanctuary to escape chores.  They also acknowledged that the nicer the bathroom, the greater length of time that they spent hidden in there. The RightToRiseSuperPac.org have some lovely bathroom ideas if you are in the market.

The study was conducted back in 2018 and it focused on the reasons why men hastily run away from their responsibilities to such a strange (and unhygienic…) part of the home.

According to the study, which surveyed 1000 male participants, men rack up seven hours of time spent in bathroom per year.

The reasons? They ran away from nagging partners, house chores, noisy children and also wanted the chance to use their phones in peace. Funny how mums don’t get the same opportunity.

The study was commissioned by bathroom expert Pebble Grey, and discovered that one-in-10 bathroom visits would be interrupted. This adds up to 171 interruptions every year.

45 percent of the study’s male participants said they rarely get any ‘me time’. Among these men, a quarter of them stated that their partners aren’t understanding of how hectic their lives actually are.

Somehow, we don’t have sympathy considering women get paid less for their time and still have zero moments of self-care in their lives…

Ed Sheeran has announced his semi-retirement at the tender age of 28 in order to spend time with his wife and childhood sweetheart; Cherry Seaborn.

The Beautiful People singer has made a fortune from his music and tour dates, and has appeared at number 17 of the UK's richest musicians in 2019.

The singer told fans at the last gig of his Divide tour that he'll be stepping away from the spotlight to build a life with his new wife.

While on stage at Chantry Park in Ipswitch on Monday, an emotional Sheeran said to the crowd that he had an announcement.

"As you may or not know, I've been on the Divide tour for over two years now and this is the last day of the whole thing.

"There is something very bittersweet about it. I love that you guys are here and we are ending it in Ipswich. This is my last gig for probably 18 months," he continued.

"We've played all around the world. Glastonbury, Wembley Stadium. All these amazing venues, America, New Zealand, Australia, Asia, South America – it's been a wild one."

He went on: "I was told before I came on that now at the end of this tour I've played to nine million people around the world. It is the biggest tour ever."

"It's been an emotional day for a lot of people backstage. It kind of feels like, in a weird way, that you're breaking up with a girlfriend that you've been with for years," he joked.

"It sounds odd but it has been a long tour." Monday's concert may as well be his final loop pedal tour gig, as he'll have a band behind him next time.

Fighting back tears, Ed changed out of his Ipswich Town football shirt and put on another one symbolising his home; Framlingham Town.

"This is a Framlingham Town football shirt. I am from Framlingham. Suffolk is my home. I am so happy to be ending this mammoth tour here," he added.

"I want to say thank you to everyone on this tour. Thank you to everyone who has given me a chance. This is my last song. I wrote this when I was 15 years old. See you in a few years' time. Thank you."

Ed low-key married his childhood sweetheart Cherry last December, and recently revealed that they're planning to start a family; "I'm starting a life with Cherry. I can't spend the next 20 years on the road."

"Kids would be the different thing. I wouldn't mind sacrificing for them. If someone told me you can't tour again for the next ten years if you have kids that is fine, because that is what I have signed up for.

"I've already achieved more than I thought I would, so now I'm just trying to have fun."

She told the VIP Magazine, ''It's not an overnight success, it didn't just happen, I didn't just get plucked from RTÉ.''

She continued, ''I've been chipping away doing great TV shows, doing s***ty TV shows, getting rejected, getting ideas rejected.''

Pink has had enough of social media trolls when it comes to her kids.

The singer, who regularly posts snaps of her two little ones, slammed the mean comments she received on a post of her young son.

The 39-year-old is mum to seven-year-old daughter Willow and two-year-old son Jameson.

She spoke on The Ellen Show about the ''rude, mean-spirited" comments she received after she posted a semi-nude image of her toddler son.

She said, ''Someone went as far as saying someone should call child services…some of the nastiest things. And I cried so hard after that. I won't share them anymore."

She went on to say that she understood people's concerns but that they could be kinder in their responses.

After posting a snap of her son and daughter and a pelican that had wandered into their home, it was the fact her son had taken his nappy off that accused issue among her followers.

Pink responded with, ''I deleted it because you’re all f*cking disgusting. And now I’m turning off my comments and shaking my head at the state of social media and keyboard warriors, and the negativity that you bring to other people’s lives.''

She also received criticism after she posted a video of her son playing with cars and saying, "Ah, damn it."

She said, ''Some people were like: 'Nice language, I'm sure that came from you' and 'What kind of mother do you think you are?'''

She continued, ''And I understand people saying you need to be more careful because you are in the public eye and you should have thought of that – they're right. But there's a nice way to say that. There's a kind way to be online.''

She said the time was right to stop posting images of her daughter as she is getting older.

She said, ''It's probably time to pull her back from the world and let her live her best life."

We love Pink and her real posts about family life – but we applaud her choice to keep that part of her life private.

Eva Mendes is looking as stunning as ever as she graces the cover of Women’s Health this month.

She revealed that before Ryan, she didn't see herself with a family.

Thankfully, she and Ryan have their family to help them with raising the girls.

The couple has been together for eight years after they met on the set of The Place Beyond the Pines.

Eva wants to make sure that her daughters have a strong role model in her.

She said, ''What I try to emphasise is that I don't let them see me put attention to how I dress. They've never seen me get ready for something; they've never seen me at work.''

She continued, ''Which is fine, for whoever wants to do it that way, but the way I keep it normal is by not letting them see me in these situations. I'm just Mom. And I'm more than happy to just be Mom.''

It sounds like she has it figured out just fine.

“I’m always honoured to be included. Now to get this sick baby in the bathtub. Congrats to all the nominees! Have fun tonight.”

Britney Spears is fresh from celebrating 20 years since Baby…One More Time! – something we still cannot believe.

And now the iconic popstar has opened up about wanting to add to her fam.

The 37-year-old singer has two sons from her marriage to Kevin Federline – 13-year-old Sean and 12-year-old Jayden.

Now she's loved-up with boyfriend Sam Asghari (who is SMOKIN' hot), having a baby is on the cards.

Lucky Britney.

It might have to do with Britney cancelling her Britney: Domination Las Vegas show after her dad Jamie suffered a colon rupture – maybe the scare looks like it might have made Britney think about how important family is.

According to Hollywoodlife. “Britney would really love to have more children, and she has expressed very much wanting to do that sooner rather than later.''

They continued, ''She’s so happy with boyfriend Sam and would love to have a baby with him. Her father’s health really made her take a step back and figure out what’s important.”

There might also be another reason why she would like another kid.

Reportedly Britney is, ''Taking some time to figure out what she wants out of life, and right now it seems like she just has no desire to perform and all her focus is on her family, including adding to her own. Britney absolutely loves her fans and performing, but she also loves being a mom and knows she’s getting older.''

If she decided to, we wish her all the best- she'll always be our fave pop star anyway.

Being a millennial in the time of skyrocketing housing prices and a questionable social obsession with avocados is difficult enough – and for many women, having children is a distant concept. 

However, many people start to feel the pressure to reproduce from their own parents. 

According to a new survey by BodyLogic, women aged 31 to 36 feel the most heat to have a child, with 62% reporting that their own parents want them to start a family. 

38% of women ages under 25 also get that expectation from their family – compared to 19% of men in the same age bracket.

The only age at which men were more likely to feel pressure to become parents was over 40.

The peak for both genders is the early 30s, with both men and women feeling the pressure in the aforementioned 31-36 age bracket. 

Fertility is a very personal aspect of our bodily health, and it differentiates person to person. 

If you're worried about your fertility, you're definitely not alone. The study found that 63% of women worry about their fertility.

Among millennials, 72% expressed a desire to have kids in the future.
