There's nothing like being with your family for the holidays and no one knows that more than Notre Dame college basketball player Matt Farrell!
On Monday night, following the Fighting Irish's game against Colgate, Farrell and his teammates gathered on the court to watch a special video featuring his brother Bo Farrell, who was deployed to Afghanistan with the U.S. Army.

While Bo's message was sweet enough, the REAL shock came when the video ended and Matt's big bro came walking on the court for the BEST holiday surprise EVER!
Of course there were hugs and lots of emotions, but what makes this even more adorable is the bros' parents were also there and had NO IDEA their oldest son was coming home.
Ch-ch-check out the AH-Mazingly emotional video (below) and make sure you have a box of tissues handy!
It's time for Lamar Odom to tell his story…
As we reported on Monday, the NBA star checked into a rehab facility in San Diego more than a year after overdosing at a brothel in Nevada circa October 2015.

According to sources, Khloé Kardashian's ex will document his recovery in a brand new reality TV show. The insider said:
"The show will be about his life, recovery — all about him."
The program has not started filming, but is hoping to air in 2017.
The athlete reportedly checked himself into professional care to maintain his sobriety, and to work on his mental and physical health. Insiders stress Odom has NOT relapsed.

Talk about a major honor!
On Monday night, LeBron James was honored with his second Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year award after an INCREDIBLE year of accomplishments and generosity!

Not only did James win the NBA championship with his Cleveland Cavaliers, but the athlete also donated $2.5 million to the Muhammad Ali exhibit at the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture. On top of that, the ball player also announced he'll be an executive producer on an HBO documentary about Ali, and has spoken out about gun violence on multiple occasions.
Though we LOVED last year's pick of Serena Williams, the Cavs star's selection is pretty special too because it's the second time he's been honored with the award. Tiger Woods is the only other person to ever have won the award twice!
Rapper Jay Z presented the All Star athlete with the award as LeBron began his speech saying:
Looks like Khloé Kardashian will be single for the holidays!
Well, she'll be officially single, that is — she's been split from Lamar Odom for a long time, but as we've been reporting over the last few months, things have been moving VERY slowly on the legal side of things!

But now, that's all about to change, at least according to TMZ! That's because a week from tomorrow — on December 17 — Khloé and Lamar's split will be legal, final, and FULL! And that's all she wrote!
As the final divorce docs are set to be stamped by a judge on that day just over a week from right now, the final terms are pretty standard and straightforward, too:
Congratulations are in order for Kobe Bryant!
On Thursday, it was revealed his wife, Vanessa, has given birth to their third child! Earlier this year, the sports star adorably announced he and his longtime love were expecting another daughter to join Natalia Diamante Bryant and Gianna Maria-Onore Bryant.

According to TMZ, the precious parents welcomed their new addition this week in Orange County.
And, since the basketball pro has put his NBA days behind him, he can devote all his time to his beautiful baby!
We're so excited that this famous family is a little big bigger now!
Congrats Kobe and Vanessa!
