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?
Earlier this month it was reported that Madonna and Jesus Luz had broken off their romantic relationship and since that time, Maddy was been mostly M.I.A. Jesus surfaced on a beach in Ipanema down in Rio De Janeiro since the break-up report came out but the only Madonna we’ve seen was in outtake photos from previous photoshoots … until now. Madonna stepped out with her young daughter Mercy James and her eldest son Rocco John for a visit to the Kabbalah Centre in NYC over the weekend … behold:
I’m still not entirely convinced that Madonna and Jesus are totally broken up. She is scheduled to visit Brazil for Carnival this coming weekend so we’ll know very soon if she and Jesus are together or not. I’m glad to see that, in the mean time, she is spending nice quality time with her children. It’s still very strange to me to see Madonna being all religious, even after all these years of her Kabbalahness. Her kids seems to enjoy the experience … they generally look very happy.

Victoria Beckham and her sons — Brooklyn Joseph, Romeo James and Cruz David — made their way to Italy this weekend to lend their support in person to hubby/daddy/footballer David Beckham in his AC Milan match-up against rival team Bologna FC. While it was very nice of Vicki B. and the boys to fly halfway around the globe to root for Becks, it’s a shame that he spent the majority of the game sitting on his butt on the bench:
Victoria Beckham was a woman on a mission last night as she flew to Italy in a bid to cheer up husband David. Armed with their three children, the family made the two-hour journey from London to see the AC Milan footballer, who was dropped to the subs bench in a match against Bologna yesterday. Fashion designer Mrs Beckham, 35, was wearing a chic burgundy jumper, her trademark large sunglasses, and, despite reports of her painful bunions, managed to squeeze her feet into four-inch blue heels. The former singer was also wearing dark blue skinny jeans, which are from her Victoria Beckham Denim collection. The mother-of-three also accessorised with her £22,140 burgundy crocodile Hermes Birkin bag which hasn’t left her shoulder in recent weeks. While Mrs Beckham cut a glum figure when arriving at the airport, Romeo, seven, obviously hasn’t inherited his mother’s pouting genes – as he grinned at awaiting photographers. Cruz, four, clutching a Winnie the Pooh bear, cheekily pulled faces as Brooklyn, 10, showed his was too old for toys as he carried a rucksack while leading the way. The Beckham clan jumped into an awaiting car which took them to David, 35, who was commiserating after his team’s 0-0 draw. After the whistle-stop visit, Mrs Beckham will fly to New York for fashion week, where she is showcasing her AW2010 collection. The boys with stay with their father while she is away.
Awww … it’s a shame that the game was a total bust but it was very sweet of the Beckham bunch to fly to Italy to support Becks. It sounds like there will be a lot more travel in Lady Beckham‘s future … can’t wait to see where she’ll wind up next.
