New Edition Is a Band

A new addition is what Britney Spears added to her family. Unfortunately, points out SPOGG scout Ashleigh W., this is not how US magazine spelled it:
The couple have spent the last month preparing for the new edition to their family. They recently finished painting the new nursery in neutral hues fit for a boy or a girl.

Thank you, Ashleigh, for doing your part to make tabloids safe to read again.

We'd also quibble with the plural verb used with couple. Though British English makes couple, team and other words plural, SPOGG looks upon them as singular words that take a singular verb. In other words "The couple has spent the last month preparing...."
