Here are a couple of really cute photos of Britney Spears spending part of her Mother’s Day weekend with her young sons Sean Preston and Jayden James. Brit Brit was on hand to pick up her boys from their karate lesson in Studio City, CA this past Saturday afternoon … behold:
It’s been quite some time since we’ve seen Britney and the boys out and about. I totally love that the little guys are taking karate lessons. If they stick with it, they’ll learn very valuable lessons about themselves and their study will help them grow into well-rounded young men. Kids this age tend to lose interest in many things but I think it would be really cool if the Spears boys grew up to be karate masters. Then they could defend their mama from all the haters. In any event, these are super cute pics … I hope we get to see more of Britney and her young karate kids in the weeks to come.

Joel Madden, frontman for his band Good Charlotte and avid Twitter user, is pretty fond of sharing his personal photos on his official Twitter account and this weekend some of those photos have been culled together by People magazine. Here are some of the photos that Joel has shared with us all along with commentary tweets that he wrote for each photo:
“So a few weeks ago we were in PHILLY. One place I consider a home away from home,” Waldorf, Md., native Joel Madden Tweeted about a recent trip back East with Nicole Richie. “We saw the Phillies/O’s game. The O’s won of course….Still @nicolerichie had to root for against me!”
While in Philadelphia, the couple took daughter Harlow to the city’s 135-year-old zoo, the first in America. “Harlow really enjoyed the Hippos. Nicole somehow found a way convince Harlow that I am a gorilla,” Madden lamented.
Madden’s twin Benji finds himself the subject of Richie’s teasing, like when she posted THIS photo of the Good Charlotte guitarist. “Just walked in on @benjaminmadden posing like this in front of my 2 dogs. Ummmmmmmm…..”
Aww … love these photos! Joel Madden (as well as his brothers Josh and Benji) are the realest guys you will ever meet. I love that they are all so willing to share so much of themselves with fans. Twitter is such a great way to “get to know” the celebs that you may be a fan of and I can assure you, what you see/read from the Maddens is what you get in real life. It’s very clear that these guys are so thankful and grateful for their lives and they seem happy to share that bliss with the world. If you’d like to see more personal photos like these, you should follow them on Twitter. After all, who wouldn’t want an adorable photo of Harlow Winter to pop up in their Twitter timeline from time to time?
Earlier today we learned that Buffyverse alum Seth Green married his fiancée Clare Grant in a private ceremony over the weekend and right now we get to check-in with another Buffyverse family we all know and lurve. Here are a couple of adorable photos of happily marrieds Alyson Hannigan and Alexis Denisof out for an afternoon stroll yesterday with their precious babygirl Satyana:
So cute, couldn’t you just die. I love how we only ever see this family out and about together … it’s kinda hard not to share in their love for one another. Sati has to be THE cutest little doll ever under that big hat of hers … OY! I could just eat her up. Love this little family :)

One big, happy family
Earlier this week we saw cute photos of the Beckham boys hanging out with the Brady boys (Tom and his eldest son John Edward) and today we get to see these Brady boys hanging out with the new Mrs. Brady, Gisele Bündchen, and newborn baby boy Benjamin Rein. As we learned last week, Tom and Gisele are building a new dream home for their new family here in SoCal so they’ve deffo started making themselves at home here in the area. Here are a few supercute pics of the happy family — Tom, Gisele, John and Benjamin — enjoying a day at the park in Santa Monica, CA this week:
After taking baby Benjamin, 4 months, to Paris, where they enjoyed a scenic cruise down the Seine, Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen took their little guy to a Santa Monica, Calif., park Thursday. Joining them? Big brother Jack, 2½, Brady’s son with ex Bridget Moynahan. The happy family played together on a playground, and Jack even rode around on a little scooter while Benjamin stayed comfortably perched in his mother’s arms.
I wasn’t aware that they were referring to little John as “Jack” (which I never understood as a nickname, btw) but whatever the case may be, it’s clear they are all working really hard on making a happy family together. I suspect Tom and Gisele decided to settle here in LA so that they could spend more time with John, who lives full-time with his mother Bridget Moynahan. I’m guessing that we will be seeing more of the newly expanded Brady Bündch around town in the coming weeks and months. They look so happy, it’s impossible not to be as happy for them.

Mother & Child
Yesterday we learned the completely shocking yet amazing news that Sandra Bullock has adopted a beautiful baby boy named Louis Bardo as mother and son graced the cover of this week’s issue of People magazine and today we learn a bit more about Sandra‘s plans for Louis‘s future. Bullock‘s baby boy was adopted from New Orleans, LA and she reveals that New Orleans is where she plans to raise him. In her new People magazine coverstory, on newsstands now, Sandra shares with the world just how important the city of New Orleans is to her:
It’s a city synonymous with rebuilding – so New Orleans seems like the perfect place for Sandra Bullock to raise son Louis. “New Orleans is his city, and he is going to know it inside and out,” she says in the exclusive PEOPLE cover story, on newsstands now. “Without the spirit of the people who live there and take care of the city and honor its traditions, its love for music, its love for life, take those people out and you don’t have why I love New Orleans so much.” Even before deciding to “find our child in New Orleans,” Bullock was establishing significant ties to and a love for the Big Easy. After Hurricane Katrina, Bullock became a major supporter of Warren Easton Charter High School, the first public high school for boys in Louisiana. The historical school sustained $4 million in damages, and the actress, who tells PEOPLE she “felt such a profound need to do something for them,” has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars for renovations, new band uniforms and a new health clinic. She has also established a $10,000 college scholarship. Not to mention, before Bullock scored a Best Actress Oscar for starring in The Blind Side, which was written by New Orleans native Michael Lewis, she used the film’s New Orleans premiere as a fundraiser to benefit the school. Her generosity even earned her an induction into the school’s hall of fame last year. “She acts as if all 800-plus of these children are her own,” Warren Easton’s principal Alexina Medley tells PEOPLE. Adds school board member Arthur Hardy: “She has been our angel. We love her.”
Sandra bought a stately manor in the Garden District of New Orleans last September and I wouldn’t at all be surprised if that is where she will be spending most of her time with Louis when she’s not working on film projects. It is very clear that the city already meant a great deal to her … now that her precious baby boy is a gift, shall we say, from New Orleans I suspect the city means all that much more to her. I’m just so happy for Sandra and her newborn baby boy. I truly hope they are able to live happily ever after in the beautiful city of New Orleans.
Fútbol meets Football
Over the weekend, fútbol player David Beckham and his sons — Brooklyn Joseph, Romeo James and Cruz David — met up up football player Tom Brady and his eldest son, John Edward Thomas, for a bit of male bonding at the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, CA together. It was a chance for the two young sporting families to get together to kick around the soccer ball and toss around the pig skin as one big group of BFFs … behold:
Injured soccer star David Beckham took his sons to play with a different shaped football at the weekend. The England midfielder took his family to visit the Rose Bowl stadium in Pasadena for the UCLA (University Of California, Los Angeles) spring game. And there Brooklyn, 11, Romeo, seven, and Cruz, five, met up with star New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. Brady, who is married to supermodel Gisele Bundchen, was accompanied by his own son John Edward Thomas (JET) Moynahan, two. Wearing an All Saints T-shirt with an unusual skull print, featuring the slogan ‘Houston We Have A Touchdown’ printed on the front, Cruz got stuck in to a game of throw and catch with Brady. But Beckham had to console his son when he was hit in the face by the ball and had a little cry. However he was soon back in the thick of things, soldiering on just as his football playing father has done on the pitch.
Yeah, that big meanie Tom Brady managed to chuck the football at Cruz hard enough to bang into his face and make the poor little guy cry. Had Becks not been nursing his torn Achilles tendon, he prolly would’ve kicked a soccer ball missile at little John‘s head in retaliation. Yeah, these guys mean business. After the jump, check out a few more photos from this guys day out and see a cute pic of Becks consoling his weeping littlest child … More »
True Blood co-stars and real life lovers Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin spent the day in Venice, CA yesterday with his daughter Lilac in tow lookin’ very much like the happiest of families. After a nice lunch at Hal’s Bar and Grill, the family made their way to Pinkberry for dessert:
I love the photo of Stephen giving his daughter a piggyback ride … even tho she looks a little big, it’s very cute that A.) she’d want a ride and B.) that daddy would oblige. The weather was perfectly lovely here in LA yesterday, I bet this happy little family enjoyed a fantastic day together.

The entire Beckham family — David, Victoria, Brooklyn Joseph, Romeo James and Cruz David — made their way en mass to a Pinkberry frozen yogurt shop in Hollywood, CA today on a happy family field trip together … behold:
Despite the fact that Becks is still lugging around his foot cast so that his ankle can heal, he and the kiddies have been popping up all over town together. Family outings like this are the norm for Les Beckhams and I’m certain his children appreciate the attention. Had Becks not been injured earlier this year, he surely would NOT be here in SoCal spending time with his kids. It’s still really sucky that he has to miss out on playing in the World Cup (the last one of his career) but at least his children are reaping the benefits of his untimely injury. I’m guessing they aren’t too upset that their daddy gets to spend more time at home with them.

When last we saw photos of Reese Witherspoon out in public with her new man (of 2 months) Jim Toth, the pair had popped up in Ojai, CA to celebrate her birthday last month. Up until now, we haven’t seen any photos of the couple out with her children Ava Elizabeth and/or Deacon Reese … which seemed smart, especially considering the kids have to deal with her recent break-up from ex-boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal as well. But, it seems that Reese is finally ready for her kids to get close to Jim because while ex-hubby Ryan Phillippe was bizzy prepping for his big night hosting Saturday Night Live in NYC, NY, Reese‘s whole new family ventured out together for a shopping excursion in Brentwood, CA yesterday:
I understand Reese, her man and her kids attended Jennifer Garner‘s birthday party yesterday and then did a bit of shopping afterward to pick up some gifts for themselves, too. I have to believe that things are getting serious between Reese and Jim since she is already introducing her kids to him after only 2ish months of dating. It’s always a difficult thing figuring out when to introduce kids to a new love interest but this seems like clear proof that Reese is not flinging with Jim Toth. Now that the family is doing things together, we may see more photos of them out and about in the weeks and months to come. I hope Reese and Jim are in it for the long haul, it’d be a shame for the kids to get attached to this new dude and then have him go away.
