The mystery girl named "Maria" who was found in a Roma gypsy camp in Greece last week has sparked an international search for the child's real parents.

Two parents hoping for a miracle are Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin, whose daughter, Lisa Irwin, disappeared from her bedroom in Kansas City in 2011.

Lisa was abducted she was 11 months old. Like Maria, she was fair-skinned with blonde hair and blue eyes. Officials are taking her parents' claim seriously.

Maria's beautiful, haunted face has sparked hope in more than just Deborah and Jeremy, however. Police say there are at least eight leads being pursued.

The age gap is also an issue for the Irwins. She would be turning three next month, while the mystery girl in Greece is believed to be at least four.

Report card time can be stressful for students and parents alike, but for one proud father and son in the U.K., it was nothing but joyful this time around.

In a video posted Monday, the dad is shocked and elated after learning that his son finally passed his math course, which he had long struggled with.

"Is that real? IS THAT REAL?!" the proud pop exclaims. Watch:

After Aria Shahrokhshahi got a much improved grade, he knew his dad, who helped Aria study and improve, would respond in memorable fashion.

He set up a secret camera to capture that reaction.

Aria admits his dad and teachers did not think he could bring last year's failing grade up to passing, but he did, and it led to a great moment he shared with us all.

Well done, the both of you!

Florida teen Malik Whiter is being criticized for posting a selfie with his pregnant teacher in the background. She was going into labor at the time:

Best/Worst Selfie Ever?

Malik, clearly, is sporting a big smile as his business lecturer is suffering through what look to be serious labor pains. He Tweeted along with the caption:

"Selfie with my teacher while she having contractions."

Of the seven-months pregnant Susana Halleck, he added, "I told her to smile and she said no." He took the photo anyway to "commemorate the moment."

The timing of the "moment" makes some Rihanna selfies look appropriate ... maybe he was just really excited to meet her baby? Or for class to be over?

The teacher was rushed to the hospital, but it turned out to be a false alarm and both she and the baby are fine. As for the reactions to Malik's move?

Stephen Trevor Chapman, a 22-year-old Arizona man, has been arrested after he was shot by a furious husband who found him in bed with his wife.

The husband is 68. The wife is 63. He reportedly discovered her sleeping with Chapman when he went to check on his wife about 1 a.m. on Saturday.

The elderly man, who suffers from Parkinson's Disease, says he fell asleep inside his home in the retiree community of Saddlebrooke, Ariz., near Tuscon.

When he went to his guesthouse to check on his wife, he found her and Chapman together, police say, and began to poke Chapman with his cane.

Chapman allegedly bounded out of bed and lunged at the man, screamed at him and refused to leave, at which point the homeowner fired a warning shot.

One pellet from the .410-caliber pistol shot struck Chapman in the hand, and the confused homeowner proceeded to make the saddest 911 call ever.

Challenge extended, Lindsay Lohan.

Trevor Alexander Warren, a 51-year old resident of Dundee Beach in Australia, was pulled over by police just past 6 a.m. on Monday.

When officers smelled alcohol in Warren's vehicle, he told them he had stopped drinking 12 hours earlier... but had consumed about 90 "full-strength cans of Melbourne Bitter beer" and hadn't eaten at all on Sunday.

Representing himself in court, Warren was convicted on a drunk driving charge, fined $450 and had his license suspended for six months.

"If people have a big night on the drink they really have to consider the following morning," highway patrol Sergeant Peter Foran told The the Western Advocate of Warren's situation. "If there is any risk at all you might be over, don't drive,"

Sage advice. Especially when you down 90 beers in one day!

Shreddies, a new brand of underwear, promises to filter out farts with its cutting-edge technology, so you can break wind without consequence anywhere, anytime.

Seriously, this is a thing. An amazing thing designed to smother your nasty fart's smell and neutralize odors with up to 200 times the strength of the average fart.

Underwear Models

These random models are not wearing it, but if they were? She could fart away!

How they determined what the average fart's potency is, we can't say. But you can imagine the testing facility reeked to high heaven after it was over.

The technical secret, in any case, is that Shreddies uses a thin and flexible carbon cloth called Zorflex - used in chemical warfare suits - in its underwear.

Neil Diamond singing "Sweet Caroline" at Fenway Park is pretty cool.

But not nearly as cool as finding a 3.85-carat diamond at a state park that could be worth as much as $30,000!

That's what happened to 14-year old Tana Clymer this weekend, as the Oklahoma City native went digging around Arkansas State Park and came up with a seriously expensive stone.

"I thought it was a piece of paper or foil from a candy wrapper," Clymer told Good Morning America. "Then, when I touched it, I thought it was a marble."

President Barack Obama stopped to help a pregnant woman on the verge of fainting during a speech he gave on health care in Washington, D.C., today.

Nearly 30 minutes into his speech, under the hot sun, a pregnant female supporter standing behind the Commander-in-Chief began to feel lightheaded.

Fortunately for the mom-to-be, Obama became aware of what was going on over his shoulder and turned around to lend Karmel Allison some support.

NOTE: This type of assistance is not covered under the Affordable Care Act.

"I gotcha, you're OK," Obama said as he put his arm out to steady her, and went on to joke, "No, no. You're OK. This happens when I talk too long."

Quickly afterward, a White House aide came to escort Allison off the stage as the President continued his speech, which came to end shortly thereafter.
