It is easy being Green
Last Sunday night, Britney Spears took her young sons Sean Preston and Jayden James to a performance of The Little Mermaid musical on Broadway in NYC, NY and last night she took them out for another show … this time Shrek the Musical. Here are pics of her happy little fam making their way into and out of the Broadway Theare last night:
Having lived in New York on and off since she was a child, Britney Spears in no stranger to the many sights the Big Apple has to offer. But since arriving in Manhattan for her Circus tour on Sunday, the singer has been hitting the tourist trail with aplomb. Last night the 27-year-old brought sons Jayden James, two, and Sean Preston, three, to see Shrek: The Musical – their second Broadway show this week. After flying in from Ottawa, Canada on Sunday, Britney took her young boys to see The Little Mermaid. Britney is the latest celebrity to bring their children to see the Little Mermaid, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt brougth their four oldest children to watch the production in February, Jennfer Garner brought daughter Violet in April and Katie Holmes checked it out with daughter Suri. Following three back-to-back gigs at Madison Square Garden, Britney was looking forward to the night off with her two favourite boys. Dressed down in a green striped long T-shirt and jeans, the pop star looked every inch the normal young mother as she carried Jayden in and out of the Broadway Theatre. Carrying a green plastic dinosaur, Jayden looked stylish in a pink Gap shirt, jeans and retro Nike trainers. While Britney carried her youngest son, she left a burly bouncer to carry Jayden’s big brother Sean, who looked smarter in a sky blue tank top, T-shirt and jeans.
So cute … and I love that Britney is instilling a love of Broadway in her young sons at such an early age. As some of you may know, Britney got her start in the music biz by performing in musical theater as an understudy in the 1991 off-Broadway show Ruthless! Clearly she has a soft spot for the Great White Way and she wants to ensure that her sons have that same appreciation. Britney wrapped her 3-night residency at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday and makes her way to Boston, MA for her next show tomorrow night. Britney may be always on the move but … she also always makes time for her children.

Cute, despite the K-Fedness
In recent weeks we’ve seen photos of Kevin Federline, ex-husband of Britney Spears and father of her two children, expanding to maximum density right before our eyes … but today we get to see him doing something very sweet for his children which proves, I suppose, that K-Fed does more than just eat these days. Here are pics of The Federline, his ladyfriend Victoria Prince and his sons Sean Preston and Jayden James (with nanny in tow) enjoying a day at the Central Park Zoo here in NYC this week:
You know the kids had a great time at the zoo so I cannot fault their father wanting to share the day with them. I just think it would be nice if he actually worked a profession (other than rap music, mind you) in order to support his children rather than live on the money he siphons from his very rich ex-wife. I just hope, in the long run, that Federline turns out to be a good role model for his sons. I honestly don’t believe he is much of a role model to his other children (with Shar Jackson) but one hopes that he will be a better one for his young sons. Going on trips to the zoo is fun and all but one hopes the kids get more than that in the long run.

My, my … but aren’t those wee Beckham boys growing up fast? Yesterday we saw photos of the Beckham Bunch celebrating middle son Romeo Beckham‘s 7th birthday bit early (his actual bday is September 1) and today we get to see just how “grown up” they all are. Here are a couple photos of Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz hangin’ out with 3 lovely young ladies in SoCal yesterday afternoon:
One presumes the youngsters were chaperoned but, then again, mebbe not. Clearly, the young men have grown beyond the stage of fearing girl cooties cuz they all look like they are having a fun time together … and there’s one girl for each of the boys. Seriously, this is way too cute … but shouldn’t be too surprising. Is there anyone out there who didn’t believe that the sons of Beckham would grow up to be lady killer Casanovas? To be honest, tho, I just didn’t expect them to get started on their fated path so soon … shows what I know ;)

Gettin' a jump start on the birthday festivities
Romeo Beckham, middle child of David and Victoria Beckham, won’t be turning 7 years old until September 1 but that doesn’t mean it’s too early to get the party started. Becks took his boys to Skateland skate park in Los Angeles, CA for an early birthday party to celebrate little Romeo‘s upcoming birthday … here is a pic of the Beckham men leaving the venue and the back of their SUV stuffed with gifts for Romeo:
My guess is that perhaps Becks or Vicki B. or mebbe the whole family will be out of town on Romeo‘s actual birthday so they decided to throw his party early so they could all be together to celebrate. I kinda love how relatively low key Beckham birthday parties are. The family likes to go to Pink Taco or visit martial arts studios rather than engage in over-the-top nonsense. Not that any of the Beckham children will grow up with any sort of normalcy (considering their fame and wealth) but the family does appear to try and keep things as next to normal as possible. Happy early Birthday, Romeo!

"The seaweed is always greener, in somebody else's lake"
Britney Spears made her way to NYC, NY this weekend ahead of her performance here of The Circus starring Britney Spears which just kicked off it’s second North American tour leg in Hamilton, Ontario Thursday night. Brit takes the stage at Madison Square Garden tonight but got into town a bit early to enjoy the city. Last night, she took her sons Sean Preston and Jayden James for a performance of The Little Mermaid musical on Broadway … here are a few pics:
Of course, Brit Brit causes a sensation everywhere she goes (and last night was no exception) but it’s nice that she managed to endure all of the gawking stares last night so she could treat her sons to a night on Broadway. I understand Papa Jamie Spears was also in attendance at last night’s performance of The Little Mermaid as well, one hopes he was able to enjoy the show as much as Sean P. and JJ presumably did.
Also, in other Britney news, Ms. Spears will PERSONALLY be giving away tickets to tonight’s concert at Madison Square Garden to the lucky person who is able to find a pair of tickets she has hidden somewhere here in Manhattan. If you follow Britney Spears on Twitter, you will be given clues to her hiding spot and if you find it, you will also get to meet Britney herself who will supposedly hand over the tix. Unfortch, I will not be in attendance at tonight’s show (I have tix to see Next To Normal on Broadway instead) but I’m sure her show will be fun for all.

... and his female associate Lauren Meek
After spending some time with their mother Madonna and her much younger toyboy Jesus Luz in Portofino, Italy earlier this week in celebration of her 51st birthday, Rocco John and David Banda were reunited with their father Guy Ritchie in London, England today so that they could spend time with their pops. Interestingly enough, Guy‘s female work associate Lauren Meek (who worked with him on his films RocknRolla and Sherlock Holmes) spent the day with Ritchie and his sons … could it be that she and Guy are more than just work friends?
Sure, the mere fact that she was hangin’ with Guy and his sons doesn’t necessarily mean that anything of a romantic nature is going on but … I dunno. He’s a very attractive man, she’s an attractive woman. From what I understand about their relationship work-wise, he refers to her as his “rock”, especially in the wake of his divorce from Madonna. This may very well be what Guy‘s new family looks like these days … and everyone looks very happy. Not too shabby, not too shabby at all.

Proud papa Ricky Martin, who became a father to a pair of twin boys via surrogate mother last August, is showing off his sons Matteo and Valentino on his official website. As you may recall, Ricky debuted his sons on the cover of People en Español last December and when last we saw him out and about with his sons, the family was out for a chilly winter stroll in NYC last January. Here is a new photo of Ricky, Matteo and Valentino posing for photographer Pablo Alfaro in the family’s latest portrait:
He used to live the “vida loca,” but life has slowed down considerably for Ricky Martin since welcoming his fraternal twins, Matteo and Valentino, by gestational surrogate last August. Sharing personal photos of himself enjoying the sun and surf with the boys on his Web site, Martin, 37, says that fatherhood “feels amazing.” “I’m so happy! Everything they do, from smiling to crying, feels like a blessing,” Martin says of his 1-year-old twins. “This has been the most spiritual moment in my life.”
He is SUCH a mom! His baby boys are so cute and already one year old … where does the time go. To be honest, with cute kids like these, I can totes understand why he’d be very happy and willing to show them off to the world wide web. After the jump, check out one more photo of Ricky and his twin baby boys … More »
Plus VB's dress line gets featured in 'V' magazine
Just days after her entire family was reunited again after daddy Becks and her eldest son Brooklyn were gallivanting in Europe together, Victoria Beckham packed up her middle child Romeo and jetted off to London, England to take care of some biz of her own. It’s crazy, one member or the other of the Beckham fam is flying off to the UK from SoCal from week to week — that sounds exhausting! Here are pics of VB and Romeo (with Teddy Bear firmly in hand) upon arrival at LAX Airport on their way to London yesterday afternoon:
I presume that VB is headed back home to England to do some work for her fashion line which is prominently featured in the new issue of V magazine. A few different looks from her line are showcased in a photospread inside the new issue but they are not modeled by Vicki B. herself. Instead, a robotic doppelgänger look-alike is featured in the mag with a fake baby in tow. After the jump, check out a few photos from the V mag spread … More »
Too Damn Cute
Here are a few supercute pics of former Twilight star Cam Gigandet with his beautiful baby daughter Everleigh Rae (who was born last April) enjoying a lovely afternoon of shopping on Robertson Blvd. at Kitson Kids yesterday. His babymama Dominique Geisendorff was also along for the shopping trip but she is not pictured here … I mean, the pics of just Cam and Everleigh are just too damn cute … behold:
It’s a shame that Cam‘s Twilight character James had to be killed off in the first movie because he’s one of those pretty boy actors that you like to see pop up in movies from time to time. He was great in Never Back Down and not so great in The Unborn … but was a happy sight to see in both films :) His baby girl is so precious … it’s nice to see Daddy and Daughter hanging out together. He looks like a sweet dad. Hopefully he’ll get new work very soon so he can continue to take his little princess out for shopping excursions.

Gettin' wet & wild in Portofino, Italy
Birthday celebrations for Madonna‘s 51st continued in Portofino, Italy yesterday as she and her young lover Jesus Luz frolicked and played off the Italian coast. As you may recall, yesterday we saw photos of Madonna & Child with her newest children Chifundo Mercy James and David Banda heading out for a birthday yacht ride … today we get to see that Maddy wanted to celebrate her birthday outside the boat as well:
Most of us would have been happy with a cake and the good wishes of a few friends and family. But for her 51st birthday, Madonna opted for an altogether more exciting affair – and brought her 22-year-old lover, two adopted children and daughter along for the ride. The celebrations began on Sunday night when the singer hosted a sumptuous dinner party in the Italian resort of Portofino, where she is staying with her boyfriend Jesus Luz, her adopted children David Banda and Mercy James, and her daughter Lourdes. For the party she hired an entire floor of the exclusive Splendido Hotel where suites cost as much as £4,500 a night. She was joined by around 30 guests, including Italian fashion designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. They presented her with a huge cake with sparklers on top and a specially-designed lace dress. Throughout the meal, Madonna was seen kissing Jesus, whom she met in December last year shortly after splitting from Guy Ritchie. He seems to have taken on the role of father figure to David, three, and Mercy, four, judging by the way he was carrying and playing with them during the day. Yesterday, Madonna was taken by private boat along with her two adopted children and Jesus to the home of the two designers, where she continued her celebrations. Dressed in a personalised basketball kit, she was seen taking an acrobatic leap into the sea as the rest of the party looked on.
As you can see, her son Rocco John is in the background of the first photo (of Madonna diving into the water) proving that he is with his mother on this Italian getaway (he and Lourdes Maria were not featured in any of the photos posted yesterday and it was assumed by some that — because of all the kids Madonna has these days — he was lost at baggage claim). You know, for a 51 year old broad Madonna is still a pretty spry bird (who seems to have an affinity for granny-lookin’ parasols). Clearly, she works it out every night on the performance stage but it’s quite another thing to be so physically engaging out in public. She really looks like she is making the most of her birthday celebrations … live it up, girl!!
