The gang's all here -- including the twins!!!
It’s been quite some time since we’ve seen the Brangelina bunch all together, including ALL of the kiddies — Maddox Chivan, Zahara Marley, Pax Thien, Shiloh Nouvel, Knox Léon and Vivienne Marcheline. When last we saw Brangelina out and about, they were were lookin’ all lovey-dovey in Miami, FL as they rooted for the New Orleans Saints at Super Bowl XLIV. Since then, Angelina made her way to Haiti to do some UN Goodwill Ambassador work there. This week, the entire Brangelina brood have made their way to Venice, Italy for a little family vacay … with ALL of their children:
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie gave the tourists of Venice an extra sight to see today when they were spotted treating their children to ice cream. After keeping a low-profile amidst rumours of relationship trouble in recent months, the couple were seen with all six of their children today for the first time in ages. The superstar couple jetted into Italy’s canal city yesterday afternoon in preparation for a three-month stint while Jolie films her new movie The Tourist. And after sleeping off the jetlag at their new digs at the 15th century Palazzo Mocenigo, Jolie and Pitt decided to give their four oldest children a taste of a local delicacy – ice cream. The couple are renting out the stunning canal-side Palazzo, which is situated between the Rialto and Accademia parts of the city and faces San Toma. After arriving in a private plane at Marco Polo Airport on Monday afternoon, the family took two speedboats – one for their huge amount of luggage and another for the children – to their new home. Jolie, 34, isn’t expected to begin filming until March 15 which gives the family plenty of time to get to know the maze of streets and canals of Venice. Earlier today, the couple left their 19-month-old twins Knox and Vivienne at home with the nannies as they took their four other children out for ice cream … A few hours earlier, the couple then stepped out with their youngest children Knox and Vivienne, who have been rarely seen in public … Their move to Venice is yet another new location for the couple’s increasingly nomadic existence. After spending the past few months in Los Angeles, it appears the Jolie-Pitt family are suffering from itchy feet again.
Aww … I love seeing the entire family altogether. This photo shows the brood enjoying ice cream together (and look at Shiloh‘s hat … is that not the cutest thing you’ve ever seen?!) but after the jump, you can check out photos of Brangelina with the youngest twins as they boarded a gondola for a Venician cruise … More »
Who is that masked woman
Madonna and much younger toyboy Jesus Luz may have got the party started down in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil a bit early last week but they were out in force this weekend (with Maddy‘s daughters Lourdes Maria and Chifundo Mercy James in tow) for the actual Carnival celebration. Here are a few photos of Madonna & Child(ren) enjoying the Carnival parade last night:
They make a nice-looking family, no? I bet it’s a real treat for Madonna‘s daughters to enjoy the pomp and spectacle of Carnival in this way … I bet Mercy James enjoyed the time of her life. Maddy is lookin’ a bit puffy in these pics, I think she might need to chill out on the face fillers but she looks like she’s having a blast nonetheless. Are you ready for Carnival/Madi Gras/Fat Tuesday? How are y’all planning to celebrate the final days leading up to Lent?

If we took a Holiday
Madonna‘s holiday in Brazil, with her two daughters in tow, continued this weekend as the ladies went out for a sight-seeing trip around Rio de Janeiro with Maddy‘s young toyboy Jesus Luz. Here are photos of Madonna & Child, Lourdes Maria and Mercy James and the boarded a helicopter to fly over Angra dos Reis yesterday afternoon:
While I’m still not convinced that the relationship between Madonna and Jesus is entirely romantic (drunken kissing in public does not a love affair make), I’m utterly convinced that Madge and Chuy will remain BFFs for some time. He makes a good manny and her kids seem to adore him (especially Mercy) so I suspect we’ll be seeing these two together for quite some time.

Earlier this week we learned that Madonna made her way down to Brazil to partake in a bit of pre-Carnival celebrating with her toyboy Jesus Luz and it turns out she did not make her way to Brazil alone … she brought along her daughters Lourdes Maria and the just-turned-5-years-old Chifundo Mercy James. Here are a few cute pics of the sisters playing in a hotel pool together … get a load of Mercy‘s water wings!!
OMG … so cute!! I cannot believe how big Mercy looks already … she’s just adorable. We’ve already seen all the fun that Madonna has been having in Rio de Janeiro this week … it’s nice to see that her daughters are having fun of their own :)

A couple of weeks ago, we learned that Jamie Lynn Spears and her babydaddy Casey Aldridge had broken up because JL found new love with an older man named James Watson. Then, earlier this week, we saw a photo of Jamie Lynn grabbin’ some grub at Sonic Drive-Thru with her pappy Jamie Spears who flew to be at her side in Kentwood, LA. Today, we get to see another new photo of JL with her baby girl Maddie Briann out with an older man … can you guess which one?
HMMMM. Firstly, can I just say WOW! Does Jamie Lynn Spears look amazing or what? She looks good, y’all. Whichever older man she’s been hangin’ with is having an AMAZING effect on her. Secondly … well, you’re gonna have to look behind the cut to find out which older man was spotted in the close company of JL and her daughter MB … More »
Back in December, we learned the not-so-shocking news that Courtney Love lost custody of her only child — Frances Bean — which was then clarified to reveal that Frances chose to live with her grandmother to get away from her mother’s care. Since that time, a restraining order was put in place against Courtney on behalf of Frances presumably for her safety. Today we learn that that restraining order has been extended for a few more months, a clear indication that Frances Bean wants nothing to do with her mother’s influence on her life:
The judge’s order prohibiting Courtney Love from having contact with her daughter — Frances Bean Cobain — has just been extended … and the clock is now ticking on their relationship. The judge had stripped Courtney of legal control of her daughter back in December. The judge also issued a restraining order. According to court documents obtained by TMZ, the restraining order has now been extended to April 9. Fact is — Frances Bean turns 18 in August. At that point, it’s up to her … not a judge … to decide what relationship she wants to have with her mother. For now, Frances Bean’s guardians are Wendy O’Connor (Kurt Cobain’s mom), and Kimberly Dawn Cobain (Kurt’s sister).
Ugh … what a shame. It’s prolly for the best that C. Love be kept away from Frances. Courtney is bizzy trying to re-launch her music career and it really sounds like Frances needs caring adults in her life who will be there to care for her, to put her needs first. It’s a shame when things like this happen but this restraining order sounds like it’s not a bad thing after all. It sure is a damn shame, tho.
Plus, her sons go in for a check-up
Britney Spears had a bizzy day yesterday full of errands and mommy duties. To get her day started, our dear Britney and her mini-entourage made their way to a Maserati dealership in the San Fernando Valley to take one of the black beauties out for a test drive:
It’s unclear if Britney actually bought the car (especially since she didn’t drive it herself) but it’s entirely possible that she decided to treat herself to a new toy to enjoy. I’m not sure that this car went home with her tho, after all … we know she has a thing for white cars.
Later on in the day, without a Maserati in sight, Britney took her sons Sean Preston and Jayden James to a medical center here in SoCal presumably so the kids could get a routine check-up. After the jump, check out those photos … More »
Boys will be Boys
While Katie Holmes and Suri Holmes-Cruise were bizzy dealing with the snow in NYC today, David Beckham and his sons — Brooklyn Joseph, Romeo James and Cruz David — were bizzy dealing with the snow in Milan, Italy … fortunately for them, the snow was much less severe … and much more fun to play in:
With genes like theirs it’s hardly surprising that the Beckham boys know their way around a football pitch. And Romeo more than proved that he was a chip off the old block as he showed off his spot kick skills that were uncannily just like his father David’s. While ten-year-old Brooklyn played around throwing snowballs, the middle Beckham boy struck a pose that would make his dad proud. With the same confident look and right-over-left leg strike on the ball as his AC Milan star father, seven-year-old Romeo booted the ball towards the goal mouth, as his little brother Cruz and their bodyguard looked on. And never one to be outshone by his older siblings, Cruz, four, laughed as he made sure the cameras snapped him on the end of a football too, which he half-heartedly kicked round the goal. Cruz likes playing up to the paparazzi and often pulls faces at them as he and his family are snapped either out for a meal or leaving an airport. Enjoying one of the many perks of having a famous footballer for a father, the boys were taken to AC Milan’s training ground in Italy yesterday by David, 34, who is currently on loan to the Serie A club from his Major League Soccer team, Los Angeles Galaxy. They were snapped getting out of the family car at the Milanello training ground, which is also used by the Italian national team, as David made sure they were fully wrapped up against the cold weather.
OMG … so cute. I will never tire of seeing Becks play with his boys like this. It must be such a treat for the kids to jet around the world to partake of their fabulous parents’ fabulous lives. What fun. I suspect the boys will be staying in Milan with Becks for some time … mama Victoria Beckham will be making her way to NYC for Fashion Week so the boys might be staying with Becks for the whole time she’s there. Something tells me this is just the beginning of all the fun for Becks and his sons.

In the cutest way possible
It’s been snowin’ like the end of days back in East but folks have been making the most of the unyielding blizzard. Here are a couple photos of Katie Holmes and her doll of a daughter Suri Holmes-Cruise braving the snowpocalypse the only way they know how:
These photos were snapped just today as mother and doll stepped out into the cold, snowy Manhattan streets to have lunch. Even I have to admit that Suri looks totally adorable in these pics. While I think that she should be wearing warm and dry boots, I’m glad Katie didn’t let the little dear go out into the cold snow wearing high heeled shoes. Nonetheless, they make a cute pair, these two, don’t they?

Gisele & Tom's baby boy makes his debut on the cover of 'Quem' magazine
Back in early December we learned that happily marrieds Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady welcomed the birth of their first child together (Tom‘s second overall). It took a few days for news of the baby’s name to be disclosed and even longer for us to get our first look at the little guy. But, at long last, the Brazilian magazine Quem gives us our FIRST LOOK at Benjamin Rein:
A revista QUEM, que chega às bancas na tarde desta terça-feira (9), traz na capa as primeiras imagens de Benjamin, filho da modelo Gisele Bündchen com o marido, Tom Brady. Benjamin nasceu no dia 8 de dezembro de 2009. Desde o nascimento do filho, Gisele tem saído pouco de casa. Em 25 de janeiro, ao voltar do trabalho em uma sessão de fotos para a marca brasileira Colcci, ela carregava a foto do bebê na bolsa, mas recusou-se a mostrá-la na entrevista que deu ao Fantástico, da TV Globo. “Com o tempo vocês conhecem ele”, afirmou. Em 27 de janeiro, uma quarta-feira, ela saiu para dar seu primeiro passeio com Benjamin. QUEM mostra as imagens com exclusividade.
Yeah, I’ve got *no idea* what this article says but I’m guess it says something along the lines of Buy the new copy of Quem magazine to see the exclusive first photos of Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady’s newborn babyboy Benjamin NOW! Tho, in this instance … the picture really is worth a 1,000 words. As far as first baby photos go, this one is really cute. Naturally, the little man is a cutie … and considering how private Gisele and Tom are about everything, we’re very lucky to get this look at Benjamin. He’s really adorable. I hope we’ll be able to see more pics of him soon but I’m not really holding my breath. We should just enjoy this first photo of Benjamin Rein … who knows how long until we get to see another photo of the little guy. He’s cute, right?
