One of the most beloved sitcoms of the 2000s has returned with a slightly different name. This week marks the Season 2 premiere of How I Met Your Father. From Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, the multi-cam comedy follows Sophie (Hilary Duff), a 29-year-old photographer who’s unlucky in love but desperate to find her soulmate. The series switches between Sophie hanging out with her friends in 2022 and a future version of Sophie telling her kid how she met their father.
Sound familiar? That’s because this comedy exists in the same universe as How I Met Your Mother but with some key differences.
Is How I Met Your Father Related to How I Met Your Mother?
Do we really have to spell it out…? Yes, How I Met Your Father is connected to How I Met Your Mother. The Hulu original picks up in 2022, nine years after the events of the How I Met Your Mother finale. But though these two shows are set in the same universe, HIMYF is more of a spiritual sequel to HIMYM than a direct one.
How I Met Your Father follows a different group of single friends in their late 20s and early 30s as they try to balance their relationships and careers. Just like its predecessor, the entire point of the series revolves around a parent telling their child the too-long story of how they came to meet their parent (but this time around, the camera is pointed at Kim Cattrall). And though the days of MacLaren’s Pub are gone, our new gang hangs out in another bar by the name of Pemberton’s.
There are even some similar locations between the two shows. For example, Jesse (Chris Lowell) and Sid (Suraj Sharma) from HIMYF live in Ted (Josh Radnor) and Marshall’s (Jason Segel) old apartment. So, yes. This new series is the same, but it’s not identical. And, at least for now, no one in HIMYF is biologically related to anyone in HIMYM.
Which How I Met Your Mother Cast Members Have Been on How I Met Your Father?
So far, this spinoff has welcomed two members of the original gang. Toward the end of Season 1, world-famous reporter Robin Scherbatsky (Cobie Smulders) met Sophie (Hilary Duff) at MacLaren’s and gave her some advice about how she should handle her relationship with Jesse. And at the end of Season 2’s premiere, “Cool and Chill”, Sophie accidentally rear-ended none other than Barney Stinson (Neil Patrick Harris). Funnily enough, that accident happened as Sophie was panicking to her mom that she may be dating her dad. Coincidence? Or foreshadowing?
But wait, there’s more. Last season also included a long storyline about The Captain (Kyle MacLachlan) and his third wife, Becky (Laura Bell Bundy). Basically, you can expect to see some of your How I Met Your Mother favorites in this newer comedy, but the main draw will always be Sophie and her friends.

Tennessee pro-life center funding – One America News Network
OAN Roy Francis
9:14 AM PT – Wednesday, February 8, 2023
Governor Bill Lee of Tennessee has proposed establishing a $100 million grant program for pro-life crisis center in his state.
Bill Lee (R-Tenn.) unveiled his plan, stating that his state has a “moral obligation” to support families. Under this plan, Tennessee would transform into “one of the top spending states” on organizations that support pregnant women who are in need of help and resources to keep their babies, rather than making the choice of abortion.
“Pro-life is much more than defending the lives of the unborn,” Lee said. “This is not a matter of politics. This is about human dignity.”
Another part of the plan is to expand “paid parental leave for state employees and widening the Medicaid eligibility for pregnant women and parents.”
“If approved,” the governor explained. “Tennessee will be the first Medicaid program in the nation to implement this kind of support. That’s pro-life. That’s pro-family,”
The governor’s administration also will demand that the federal government pay the cost of diapers for Medicaid recipients for a period of up to two years.
The governor, who is on the advisory board for a crisis pregnancy center, said that his other priorities include teacher pay raise, upgrading the state’s transportation system, and cleaning up toxic waste at industrial sites.
“We can have a healthy debate about the policy specifics, but we can also agree that America is rooted in a commitment to human dignity,” Lee said later on. “There was a significant shift in this country last year when it comes to protecting the lives of the unborn. We now all have an opportunity and a moral obligation to support strong Tennessee families.”
This plan was unveiled during Lee’s annual State of the State address which was held in front of the Republican-led legislature.
The governor touts his state as “a guiding light for opportunity, security & freedom” and laid out his agenda going forward, which was met with protests from the Democrats in the state of Tennessee.
Columbia student from Syria loses nieces, sister-in-law in earthquake
A 28-year-old Syrian student at Columbia University lost his two young nieces and their mom in the devastating earthquake that has claimed at least 11,000 lives in his country and neighboring Turkey.
Hussein Akoush, a student at the Ivy League school in Manhattan since 2021, told The Daily Beast that he was sent into a “panic” when a friend texted him about “massive destruction” in his hometown of Al-Atarib in northwestern Aleppo.
“I saw the magnitude of the earthquake was 7.8. At this point, I realized it was huge,” he told the outlet.
“I had to check in on my family in Syria. So I sent messages to all my sisters and my brother, but none of them received my messages,” said Akoush, who moved to Turkey in 2016 and then to the Big Apple in 2021 to study neuroscience.
He finally heard from his uncle, who said, “‘Don’t worry, we’re fine, your mother and your sister are well,” Akoush told The Daily Beast.
“‘Your brother’s building collapsed but we managed to take him out of the ruins. But we know nothing about his wife and two daughters,’” he said his uncle told him.
Eventually, he learned that his nieces — 6-year-old Sedra and 5-year-old Maria — and their mom Fatima perished in the disaster.
“With a heavy heart and profound grief, I announce the passing away of my two nieces and their mother in last night’s earthquake,” Akoush said on Twitter.
“So, my brother lost his wife and his two daughters,” he told The Daily Beast, adding that his brother has undergone surgery for a broken arm.
“It was a terrible night… I was not able to sleep,” he said.
In a GoFundMe page from 2020, Akoush wrote that “before the Syrian revolution began, I was a hardworking student. I used to be top of my class but I was obliged to drop out of the School of Dentistry at Aleppo University in 2012 for fear of arrest by the Syrian Government due its violent response to the peaceful protests on campus.
“During the war, I dedicated myself to peaceful activism against the brutal dictatorship of Bashar Al Assad, as I watched friends and family members and innocent civilians being ruthlessly killed,” he continued.
Akoush said he learned English, decided to move to Turkey and became a freelance journalist after facing “a litany of death threats and constant bombardment.”
“Fortunately, I was awarded a partial scholarship from Columbia to cover half of the tuition but it is still not enough and that is why I am hoping you will make a donation to help pay for my first year of tuition,” he wrote.
Akoush received $51,426 in donations, surpassing his goal of $50,000.

I have to ‘learn to read’ before Barbra Streisand memoir
Lea Michele is poking fun at rumors claiming she can’t read, joking that Barbra Streisand’s memoir release has given her a looming deadline.
“265 days to learn to read,” the “Glee” alum captioned a TikTok shared Wednesday, which showed the actress covering her mouth in a shocked expression.
Michele, 36, leaned out of the video’s frame to show the cover of Streisand’s upcoming memoir, “My Name Is Barbra.”
The 80-year-old singer’s book will be published in November, with her publisher calling it “frank, funny, opinionated, and charming.”
In a press release, Viking wrote, “Barbra Streisand is a living legend, a woman who in a career spanning six decades has excelled in every area of entertainment, and this engrossing and delightful book will be eagerly welcomed by her millions of fans.”
The statement continued, “Dozens of books have been written about Streisand, and now in My Name Is Barbra, she tells her story in her own words.”
Michele’s social media upload, which her followers praised as “iconic” and “funny,” did not mark the first time she has addressed speculation about her reading and writing skills.
The Broadway star called the rumors “sad” in a September 2022 New York Times interview.
“I think often if I were a man, a lot of this wouldn’t be the case,” she said, pointing out that she showed up to the “Glee” set with her lines memorized “every single day” for six seasons.
Last month, one of Michele’s friends — and former “Scream Queens” co-star” — Emma Roberts played coy about the longstanding gossip on “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen.”
“We have not been in book club together,” the “American Horror Story” alum teased.
However, when Michele began starring in “Funny Girl” on Broadway last year, she received, and presumably read, a “beautiful letter” from Streisand, who once played the role.
“It was very sweet,” Michele gushed to Seth Meyers in December 2022. “She was like, ‘It’s really wonderful when your dreams come true, isn’t it?’”
The Emmy nominee “fell to [her] knees” over the note and immediately called her loved ones.
