A young boy wandered onto the stage at the Vatican this past weekend, hugging Pope Francis as he tried to give a speech. The boy, who looks about 6, was originally sitting on the steps near the Pope, while Francis listened to followers address him at the Vatican's Year of Faith Celebration. Boys will be boys, and this one wanted a closer look at the man in the robe. So, he wandered up to give a personal hello. But the boy's misadventure didn't end there. He kissed the cross around the Pope's neck.

The much touted white wedding of Nollywood actor, Ime Bishop Umoh a.k.a Okon Lagos took place today, Saturday, 19th October, 2013 at Insight Bible Church, Uyo, Akwa Ibom State. As usual, I bring you the first set of photos while waiting for the official photographs from the couple. Meanwhile, the wedding reception at Mboho Mkparawa Ibibio Unity Hall, Udo Udoma Avenue is strictly on invitation. That’s why lots of people, especially fans have been denied access into the venue (you can see a lot of people standing outside in the last pix). So his wife’s name has officially changed from Miss Idara Saviour to Mrs Idara Ime Umoh (or Mrs Idara Okon Lagos, no mind me ooo, just kidding). Wish them a happy married life. Congrats.
