You'll Believe in Miracles After Seeing This Baby & Other Survivors Pulled From Rubble in Nepal Days After Catastrophic Earthquake

Nepal Earthquake, Baby
Warning: Your heart is about to explode, in a good way.
With so much devastation crisscrossing the globe, from Baltimore all the way to Kathmandu, it's the handful of inspiring images of great human perseverance that allow a little light to poke in through the darkness.
The death count from the catastrophic 7.8 earthquake that gutted Nepal on Saturday reached 5,825 and is only going up—so every life that was somehow spared seems to take on an almost mystical symbolism, proof that miracles still do happen. Because how else to explain these survivors' tales?

"I had very little hope that they had survived. I didn't hear any sound at all," mother of two Rasmila Awal told CNN after her 5-month-old son Sonies was pulled from the rubble of their family's collapsed home 22 hours after the earthquake. Awal recalled just having left the house when the quake hit and she watched it collapse.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. to Post Suge Knight’s $10 Million Bail if He Wins Manny Pacquiao Fight?

Floyd Mayweather, Jr., Suge Knight
Suge Knight may be out of jail as early as this weekend if Floyd Mayweather Jr. wins his anticipated boxing match against Manny Pacquiao, his lawyer says.
The 50-year-old Death Row Records co-founder has remained behind bars since he was arrested on Jan. 30 on suspicion of running over two men with his pickup truck. He re-entered a plea of not guilty on Thursday to charges of murder, attempted murder and hit and run over the incident, in which one man was killed and the second was injured. His bail was set at $10 million, reduced from $25 million, and his trial is set to begin in July.
Matthew Fletcher, Knight's attorney, said if Mayweather wins Saturday's boxing match, he could cover his client's bail, The Los Angeles Times and NBC Los Angeles reported on April 30. The boxing champion has not commented. Fletcher told the outlets he talked to Mayweather about the issue on Wednesday.
"They're good friends," Fletcher was quoted as saying. "Suge said, 'Man, I was really going to pull for him to win, but now I'm going to have to pray for him to win.'"
With a record of 47-0, Mayweather is the favored boxer to win the showdown, dubbed the "fight of the century." 50 Cent recently said he is betting $1.6 million on him.
Mayweather could be paid up to $180 million for fighting Pacquiao, who would receive more than $100 million, Fox Sports reported in March. Whether he wins or loses, $10 million appears to be small change for Mayweather, who has flaunted his massive wealth on social media several times.
The Mayweather-Pacquiao fight takes place at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas and will live on pay-per-view on Saturday, May 2. Coverage begins at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT and the main event is expected to start at least a couple of hours later.

Jennifer Lopez Joins Los Dinos for Beautiful Selena Quintanilla-Pérez Tribute at 2015 Billboard Latin Music Awards

Jennifer Lopez, Billboard Latin Music Awards
The 2015 Billboard Latin Music Awards included one very bittersweet moment tonight.
Jennifer Lopez took the stage to perform the highly anticipated and absolutely amazing tribute to the late Selena Quintanilla-Pérez, the iconic Tejano singer who was murdered in 1995.
There was obvious nostalgia before the tribute even began, seeing as Lopez portrayed the singer in the biopic Selena back in 1997, but fans of the Mexican-American star would instantly be greeted with a number of aspects from J.Lo's performance that tugged at their heart and reminded them of the brunette beauty who was taken too soon.
With old footage of Selena playing in the background, Lopez opened the performance with Quintanilla's famous hit "Como La Flor" while wearing a dazzling crop top with jeweled pants under a sheer overlay.

Watch Jamie Dornan Get Kinky in First Fifty Shades Darker Teaser Trailer!

Jamie Dornan
The first teaser trailer for Fifty Shades Darker has arrived!
Just days after fans got their first look at Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey sequel, Universal has released a 30-second clip teasing the highly anticipated flick.
The new video shows Mr. Grey suiting up in a formal tux. The hunky star looks super sexy as he puts on a kinky S&M facemask. "Are you ready for something darker?" reads text that flashes across the screen. The only thing missing from the new teaser is Dakota Johnson (aka Anastasia Steele)!

Will Smith Spotted on the Set of Suicide Squad
The Suicide Squad is really coming together!
Will Smith is the latest cast member to be spotted on the set of the upcoming film, and fortunately for fans you get to see him in his costume! Clad in relatively gangster-looking civilian clothing, Smith channels his character Deadshot.
He sports a brown leather jacket over an all-black ensemble (including gloves!). He tops the look off with a wide-brim hat. The DC Comics antihero was primarily a Batman villain who was regularly hired as an assassin who "never missed."
Smith was busy filming in Toronto, Canada, where Ben Affleck was also seen suited up in his Batman suit, seemingly confirming rumors that he will appear in the David Ayer-directed flick. I've also gotten a look at Jared Leto as the Joker, who already has given me nightmares for life considering how terrifying he looks.

This High School Student Was Kicked Out of Prom for Wearing a Backless Dress

Mireya Bricenoo, Prom Dress
One mom is sticking up for her teenager after she was kicked out of her high school prom for wearing a backless dress.
According to Connie Briceno, her 18-year-old daughter Mireya Briceno completely followed all dress codes when she attended the dance wearing a blue dress with white polka-dots.
"The guidelines specifically said backless dresses are acceptable," the Michigan mom told Yahoo Parenting. "The rules stated the dress needed to adhere to the ‘fingertip' rule—meaning the dress had to hit below your fingertip when standing with her arms by your side."
She added, "They also said no midriff showing, which to me means stomach. And they said the words ‘backless dresses are acceptable.'"

D.L. Hughley Breaks Down As He Remembers Touching Story About His Son Who Has Asperger’s Syndrome

Featured image
I can’t imagine how challenging and emotional it must be raising a child with a mental disorder. Comedian DL Hughley recently broke down in tears talking about his son Kyle, who has Asperger’s Syndrome — a pervasive developmental disorder that presents difficulties in social interaction and nonverbal communication in those it effects. During an interview on Oprah’s Where Are They Now, Hughley remembered holding his 26-year-old son and telling him “You’re going to be alright.”
“He graduated from college, but everything has to be the same. He goes to work at the same time. He eats the same things,” he explained. “Three weeks ago, I had to get gas and he says ‘Daddy, I’ll do it.'”
“I’m a nervous wreck,” he continued. “So he comes back in and he gives me the receipt and the keys. And I could not stop crying, because he did something he was afraid to do … I just didn’t believe he could do it. He did it.”
