Social media queen Chrissy Teigen has once again renewed her crown with her latest baby photo series on Instagram, featuring baby Miles and…not-so-baby John Legend.

There's no doubt in anyone's minds that their nine-month-old baby boy Miles is the SPITTING IMAGE of John Legend.

Seriously, it's uncanny. Chrissy posted an image of Miles celebrating nine months of life, and then posted an identical picture featuring a grown-up John in a onesie, and we're gasping.

She captioned the initial picture on Instagram;"Nine months of this perfect", with a love heart and lion emoji. Cute.

She stepped it up in the next image, however, which shows John in a baby-gro celebrating a LOT more than nine months of life…

"Wow they grow up so fast," she wrote, with the hilarious post showing '482 months' old John in a matching position to Miles.

We learn a thing or two about John Legend in the post; his favourite bed-time lullaby is Say A Little Prayer, and his favourite bed-time story is the political news programme The Rachel Maddow Show. Very niche for a baby…

He doesn't like beets and bad grammar, and he loves music, peanut butter and his family. How pure.

Hilariously, Chrissy also included the amount of teeth he had, his height in inches, and his weight. The 40-year-old Ordinary People singer looks absolutely chuffed with himself either way, so that's a nice milestone right there.

Meanwhile, mum-of-two Chrissy was GUSH-ing about the latest addition to her family as she posted Mile's extra cute chalkboard.

Little Miles sat on the floor and detailed his likes and dislikes, and it's just the cutest. The statistics included his love for his sister Luna, toys, music and bath time. 

Social media personality Chrissy and musician John welcomed their son Miles into the family last May, and also share two-year-old daughter Luna. What a fam, we aspire to be as legendary as this lot.

Valentine's Day can either be the most swoon-worthy event in the calendar year for loved-up couples, or a Hallmark-card disaster for the broken hearted.

Whether you'll be heading on a candelit-dinner date with roses or cuddling up with your pet on the couch, we can all use a little romantic-comedy movie magic.

We've created a list of our film favourites for the loveliest day of the year…enjoy ladies.

1. Set It Up

Harper and Charlie, played by Zoey Deutch and Glen Powell, are plagued by cruel and hugely demanding bosses, until they decide to join forces and essentially trick them into falling in love with each other.

The biggest project of their young careers ensues, as their bosses will only fall for each other around their tight schedules, but will Harper and Charlie make a connection too?

Lucy Liu steals scenes as Kristen, Harper's insanely scary sports reporter boss. This movie is one of our favourite rom-coms ever, it somehow banishes clichés while remaining lovable at the same time.

2. To All The Boys I've Loved Before

The massively popular film is based on Jenny Han's trilogy, The Summer I Turned Pretty, and the Netflix movie caused quite the stir since its release.

Starring the adorable Lana Condor and Noah Centineo as teenagers who pretend to date in order to solve one young girl's letter-related disaster, you'll fall in love with this feature.

Lara Jean's love life goes from imaginary to out of control when the five love letters written privately to every boy she’s ever loved are mysteriously mailed out, despite the fact that they were hidden in her bedroom…

3. La La Land

Who could forget this stunning movie from Academy Award-nominee Damien Chazelle.

La La Land tells the breathtakingly beautiful story of Mia, an aspiring actress, and Sebastian, a dedicated jazz musician, struggle to make ends meet in a city known for crushing hopes and breaking hearts.

The unique musical about everyday life explores the joy and pain of pursuing your dreams; Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling are unbelievable in their acting prowess and chemistry in this tale of love in LA.

4. Valentine's Day (of course)

Yet another American rom-com from veteran film-maker Gary Marshall; Valentine's Day shows a series of interconnected stories of L.A. residents (celebrities) who go through the highs and lows of love on Valentine's Day.

From first dates, long-time marriages, old flames and new crushes, the stories will melt your heart like Ben & Jerrys on the couch.

The all-star cast consists of Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Bradley Cooper, Kathy Bates, Hector Elizondo, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Garner, Topher Grace, Ashton Kutcher, Queen Latifah, Taylor Lautner, Anne Hathaway, Shirley MacLaine, Emma Roberts, and even Taylor Swift in her acting debut.

5. The Notebook

The Nicholas Sparks classic that has everyone reaching for the tissues, and which launched Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams from obscurity to stardom.

The pair also fell in love in real life while filming, so it's even more special.

Based in 1940s South Carolina, mill worker Noah falls for rich girl Allie but her parents force them apart. Noah leaves to serve in the second World War, and Allie finds love elsewhere. When Noah returns to their small town, their romance is far from over.

6. Crazy, Stupid, Love

Ryan Gosling just can't escape this round-up list, can he?

The hilarious and heart-warming film follows Cal, played by Steve Carell, as he undergoes a divorce from his wife Emily, played by Julianne Moore. Cal is still desperately in love with Emily, and his life is unravelling until he discovers Emily's infidelity.

Single at the age of 40, he finds Jacob (The charming Ryan Gosling), a handsome and youthful seducer who teaches Cal how to flirt with women again. Jacob is a bachelor of sorts, until his consistent co-star Emma Stone comes into the forefront. The pair really do sizzle on-screen together, but maybe it's just Ryan Gosling and anyone?

7. The Fault In Our Stars

Based on the critically-acclaimed YA book by John Green, the film follows Hazel Grace (Shailene Woodley), a young teenager diagnosed with cancer.

The 16-year-old meets and falls in love with Gus Waters, played by Ansel Elgort, after meeting him in a cancer support group.

Gus uses his invitation to meet Hazel's favourite author, Peter Van Houten, and brings her to Amsterdam to meet the recluse. Their love story becomes entangles by health problems, with often tragic circumstances. This one's a certified tear-jerker.

8. About Time

With an Irish star, what's not to love?

Domhnall Gleeson stars as Tim, who discovers the family secret at 21-years-old; the men in their family can time-travel.

Tim resolves to change his life by getting himself a girlfriend, Mary. Rachel McAdams plays his love interest, who falls in love with him after time-travel ensues. 

As life goes on, Tim figures out that his special ability can't save himself or those he loves from ordinary and mundane human problems.

9. P.S I Love You

The movie that led to Gerard Butler apologising for the butchering of an Irish accent; Hillary Swank plays his co-star and widow, who finds a series of messages that serve to guide her new life.

Starting on her thirtieth birthday, Holly Kennedy receives the first in a series of letters written by her late husband, designed to ease her grief and encourage her to move forward after his tragic death.

Parts of it are filmed in Ireland, with stunning scenery and endless romance from Cecelia Ahern's novel.

10. The Holiday

Normally watched at Christmas, The Holiday also serves as a perfect flick to watch on the most romantic day of the year.

It's got Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet swapping houses, it's got Los Angeles and English countryside scenery, sunshine and snow, Jack Black and Jude Law; basically everything.

Depressed and suffering from unrequited love, Iris agrees to swap homes with similarly unlucky-in-love Californian Amanda for a break. Of course, both lovelorn ladies bump into local lads and sparks fly. Utterly romantic…

11. Love, Rosie

We can't curate a list of love-themed films without including Love, Rosie.

Best pals Rosie and Alex have known each other decades, but are suddenly separated when Alex moves to America to pursue a dream.

Can their friendship survive the distance, as well as each of their own personal turbulent love stories? Tune in to see Sam Claflin and Lily Collins light up the screen.

12. Maid in Manhattan

Jennifer Lopez at her best.

The classic New York City-based flick follows a mother-of-one, Marisa Ventura, who lives in the boroughs and works as a maid in a top Manhattan hotel.

A twist of fate leads to her identity being mistaken for that of a wealthy socialite, and she meets Christopher Marshall (Ralph Fiennes), the heir to a political dynasty.

He has no idea who she really is, but the pair fall deeply in love. When her identity is revealed, their worlds couldn't be further apart. Will their love withstand?

We're in LOVE with this list, maybe we'll skip that date and just binge-watch all 11 of these in a row?

All we need is chocolate, candles and a fluffy pet to keep us warm for the perfect movie night.

Happy Valentine's Day gals, don't forget to treat yourselves.

The La La Land / Moonlight mix-up during the 89th Academy Awards will go down in Oscar history, not least because of Ryan Gosling's somewhat surprising reaction to learning he had not, in fact, bagged himself a little gold statue as audience members and viewers understood.

While many would have understood a disappointed or even frustrated response from La La Land's leading man, Ryan surprised fans by giggling into his sleeve after word landed that the musical had been awarded Best Picture in error.

Standing among stunned cast and crew on stage, Ryan attempted to hide a smirk behind his hand, but now, one month on, is at pains to explain his odd reaction.

"What really was happening as I was watching, it was surreal anyway, I was watching people start to have this panicked reaction in the crowd and guys were coming on with headsets and I felt like someone had been hurt," he said.

Speaking to People magazine, the 36-year-old insisted that his reaction was one of relief because the initial chaos led him to believe that someone had been taken ill.

"I thought there was some kind of medical situation, and I had this worst-case scenario playing out in my head," he said when reflecting on the confusion which played out in front of millions of viewers worldwide.

Recalling the moment it all became clear, he said: "And then I just heard Moonlight won and I was so relieved that I started laughing.”

And lest there be any confusion over his response to the loss, he added: "Truthfully, I was also so thrilled that Moonlight won. I know the director. I’ve worked with them before. I’m so happy for them that they were being recognised."

So, now we know.

Oh, and while we have you; don't forget to have your say in the inaugural SHEmazing Awards this May! It's time to vote, and you can do it right here!

La La Land received 14 nominations in this year's Academy Awards, and took home seven six gongs at the end of the night, so to say it has been the movie on everyone's lips is an understatement.

We waited for months for its release, and none of us were disappointed with the final result – a film full of music, love and dancing.

So, imagine how amazing it would be to watch the movie alongside a live orchestra?!

We'd feel like we were in the movie! *Swoons*

Well, the Bord Gais Energy theatre wants you to immerse yourself in the experience this year as it's introducing a HUGE screen and a 60-piece orchestra to play alongside La La Land.

Starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, La La Land is the movie that has us falling in love with musicals all over again.

Up for a record-tying 14 Oscars (only Titanic and All About Eve can match that figure), it also won every category it was nominated for at the Golden Globes last month.

Oh, and it’s made close-to ten times its budget back already.

Here at SHEmazing! we say – go see it asap!

And if you’re wondering what the, ahem, song and dance is all about… here are eight very good reasons to LOVE La La Land

1) You will worship musicals again

Sure for the first five minutes, you wonder how it’s all going to pan out. After another ten minutes of La La Land, you really start to like what you see. And after 30 minutes – well, then you are just ALL OVER musical films forever more.

2) You will covet the weather

It’s Ireland; it’s February. It’s chilly and damp and a bit dreary. What better time to inject a spot of LA sunshine and light into our lives? It’s practically a health treatment…

3) You will fall in love

Maybe not with your date – but certainly with the loved-up duo that is Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling. Their chemistry = ah-maze-ing! This is their third film together (the others being Gangster Squad, and Crazy, Stupid, Love) and, yup, they’re once again pretty much perfect.

4) You will sing

Stick the soundtrack on Spotify in the aftermath and truthfully, you will listen and sing along to little else for weeks.

5) You will adore dance

Dancing With The Stars has its merits, sure. But what you experience in La La Land is approximately 1,000 times better than anything seen on a celebrity-infused reality TV show.

6) You will dream

La La Land is all about making dreams come true. And every one of us – deep down – is a bit of a dreamer, right? This is a movie that offers beautiful escapism, making you feel all warm and fuzzy and happy inside at the same time.

7) You will be utterly devoted to Emma Stone

Put simply, she remains one of the most talented, smart and funny actresses we have ever seen. She is Hollywood royalty for all the right reasons.

8) You will quiver when you see Ryan Gosling

Do we need to elaborate? The guy is not only the sexiest man alive, but he also can dance, sing, AND play the piano. That is all the #boyfriendgoals right there.

If you were a fan of Crazy Stupid Love, then you're going to be very happy because Ryan Gosling and Emma Stona are teaming up again.

The new trailer for their upcoming movie La La Land has just landed and it's totally swoon-worthy.

It tells the tale of an aspiring actress, Mia (Emma Stone) and a jazz musician (Ryan Gosling) and how they attempt to become famous in Los Angeles.

In the director, Damien Chazelle's own words: "It's a contemporary love story… about two dreamers in Los Angeles who are trying to make it. It's about how you kind of balance life and art and your dream life with reality."

And if you weren't already in love with the sound of the movie, then fall in love with the sound of Ryan Gosling's voice as he serenades Emma in the trailer:

YES. That is actually Ryan Gosling singing.
