At the end of 2010 I was lucky enough to volunteer for a beautiful organization called African Impact. While I was there I volunteered at schools, taught singing lessons and spent time playing with the children of the local communities in Limuru, Kenya. What I experienced during my time there impacted me greatly. I was so inspired by the hearts of these people. Their spirits were so beautiful and radiant, they were loving, accepting and non- judgmental. The joy they received from pure things such as human connection and a sense of community was so deeply moving to me. They became my teachers, as I taught much less and learned so much more than I could’ve ever imagined. I documented and edited together footage of some of my experiences. If it even crosses your mind to get involved with a charity like African Impact, please do so. I guarantee that it will make a beautiful imprint on your heart as it has done mine. Love Teresa.

When “Vampire Diaries” fans saw the pilot for “The Originals” spinoff, they were shocked to learn that Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) is pregnant.

When she and Klaus (Joseph Morgan) had a drunken encounter — fueled more by boredom than by any actual interest in each other — they never expected to need protection, since vampires can’t get sick, and can’t procreate. Turns out, though, hybrid vampires can procreate.

Oops.

It was surprising to the actors as well as the fans, but Tonkin is taking it all in stride. “I didn’t know I was going to play a pregnant woman! I’m excited, I’m going to eat ice cream, get into character,” she jokes.

There’s an old saying warning actors to avoid working with children and animals on set — but Tonkin has her fingers crossed that there will be a toddler hanging out on “The Originals” stages in Atlanta. “I want a little kid running around! I can babysit and hang out,” she says. “I was a nanny, so I feel like it’s my element, having a child on my hip.”

She’s not expecting any domestic bliss with Klaus, though. In fact, as a fan of “The Vampire Diaries” herself, Tonkin is hoping he ends up with someone else entirely. “Can I go, first, on the record, and say Team Klaroline,” she says. “Please. I’m on the team. I’m on the team!”

As Julie Plec told us, Tonkin reiterates that Klaus and Hayley aren’t going to fall in love while changing diapers. “I think that Hayley and Klaus got together not thinking it was going to go any further than that one night situation, and that’s life. Things come up. I think they’re going to deal with that, but I think it’s more about the child, and the issue of the pregnancy, as opposed to them being together in a relationship. I don’t really see that happening. But there’s a lot of other characters, and I’m sure Hayley will find someone to help her look after the child.”
