The Cambridges Are Probably Done Having Kids - Here's Why
There's no doubt that Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge have an incredibly adorable family. Between future heir Prince George, scene-stealing Princess Charlotte, and sweet baby Prince Louis, the royal couple certainly have their hands full with their young family. With a royal baby on the way for Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan, some are wondering whether or not William and Kate will have any more children.

As most members of the royal family tend to do when it comes to personal matters, the couple have remained private as to whether or not they plan to grow their family any further.

It's Basically Impossible to Spot This Inside Joke Lurking in M. Night Shyamalan's Glass

It's Basically Impossible to Spot This Inside Joke Lurking in M. Night Shyamalan's Glass
Director M. Night Shyamalan has finally finished his Eastrail 177 Trilogy - which consists of Unbreakable, Split, and, now, Glass - wrapping up the stories of superhumans David Dunn (Bruce Willis), Mr. Glass (Samuel L. Jackson), and Kevin Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy). The latter suffers from dissociative identity disorder, with 24 individual personalities living within his psyche, making McAvoy's performance nothing short of astounding.

While sitting down with Fandango, the director explained how one of Kevin's many personalities, a Southern man identified as "Luke," is actually a nod to the film's real-life editor, Luke Ciarrocchi. Apparently Ciarrocchi has a notorious habit of spoiling the ends of films for his friends, which is why Shyamalan has McAvoy-as-Luke say in Glass, "Everybody knows the priest dies at the end of The Exorcist."
