Then Britney Spears & Jason Trawick sneak off for a romantic getaway together
Congratulations are in order for Sean Preston Spears-Federline today … because lil’ homie just graduated from preschool, y’all! I know it’s a very rare occurrence when a Federline graduates (tho, it has been known to happen) so this is BIG news for the Federline family. Mama Britney Spears reunited with papa Kevin Federline at Reseda High School this week so that the entire Spederline family could be together for Sean P‘s big day:
I really love the ensemble that K-Fed decided to wear to his son’s graduation … that’s class, y’all. But, to be honest, I think it’s really very cool that Britney and K-Fed could come together for their son … and it looks like both Brit and Kevin left their significant others at home. It’s not very often that we get to see the entire Spederline family together again so … ’twas a rare occasion, indeed.
After Sean P. was all graduated and stuff, Britney and her beau Jason Trawick decided to sneak off to Palm Springs, CA to spend a romantic weekend together. After the jump, check out where Britwick made a pit stop on their way out of town … More »
Will reportedly make their way to Gary, Indiana later today
While countless Michael Jackson fans will be marking the anniversary of his death in a variety of ways today (many of them centered squarely here in Los Angeles, where MJ is laid to rest), his 3 children — Prince Michael Joesph, Paris Michael Katherine and Prince Michael Joesph II aka Blanket — have made their way to Hawaii this week to escape the melee here in SoCal to rest, relax and reflect in their own way:
As the world around them honors Friday’s first anniversary of their father’s sudden death, Michael’s Jackson’s three grieving children escaped to the islands of Hawaii, where they were treated to a day of fun in the sun by their grandmother, Katherine. The kids – Prince, 13; Paris, 12; and Blanket, 8 – were spotted this week on their quick family getaway in Maui with Katherine, a security team and friends. Paris, who has had the most trouble privately coping with the loss of their famous father, was photographed swimming at the hotel pool with a solemn expression on her face. Says a source close to the Jackson family: “Early on, Paris didn’t think she could live without her father … she just didn’t know how she was going to function. But [Katherine] has been so supportive of her that Paris is much better. Her brothers, meanwhile, appeared more carefree on the trip, often smiling and playing in the waves with other children on the beach. “You have to remember that everybody in that family was suffering from grief, so Michael’s kids never felt alone in it,” the source continues. “That helped them to become stronger.” Clearly, the children have come a long way in the past year. Says the source, “They are much more open, and playful. They have matured.” On Friday’s actual anniversary of Jackson’s death, the family is scheduled to head to their late father’s hometown in Gary, Indiana, where Katherine is expected to reveal a large monument of the pop icon outside of the home where the Jacksons grew up nearly 50 years ago. A memorial and candlelight vigil is due to follow, concluding with Jackson’s hit “We Are The World.”
It’s so nice to see MJ‘s kids enjoying life like normal kids … unmasked and unabashedly basking in the sun and surf on holiday. It really does sound like they have adjusted well to the loss of their father and are doing well. If these reports of a trip to Gary, IN are true then Katherine and the kids should be winging their way to the Midwest right about now in order to make it in time for the anniversary celebration that will take place there later today. To be honest, I think it would’ve been much more appropriate for the kids to just be left alone in Hawaii to play as they will. But, apparently, Katherine wants them to bear witness to at least one special remembrance ceremony for their late father. My thoughts are with the kids today … while the world is still dealing with the loss of the King of Pop, we have to remember that these kids are still dealing with the loss of their beloved daddy.

Kelis and her baby boy Knight Rogers, who was born back in July of last year, stepped out here in SoCal together and made the cutest little couple:
I believe this is the first good look that we’ve gotten of little Knight since he was born last year. He is a cutie! Earlier today we saw adorable photos of SMG out with her daughter Charlotte Grace … who is about the same age as lil’ Knight here. Wouldn’t it be fantastic if they ended up together somewhere down the line? Considering how cute they each are now, they might make a great couple in the future ;)

It’s been a few months since we’ve seen new mom Sarah Michelle Gellar out and about with her baby girl Charlotte Grace but today we get to see a couple of absolutely adorable photos of mother and daughter out for lunch here in SoCal this week. When last we saw Charlotte Grace, she was still a wee little thing getting pushed around in her stroller … but in these new photos, we see that she has grown into such a big girl already:
Sarah Michelle Gellar took her beautiful baby, Charlotte Prinze, out for lunch in Los Angeles yesterday. The Buffy star, who was dressed casually in black leggings, a cardigan and sneakers was joined by her mother. Looking slim and fit it’s hard to believe Gellar gave birth just nine months ago. Charlotte is the first child for the 33-year-old actress and her husband Freddie Prinze Jr. Earlier this year Prinze told U.S. talk show host George Lopez that the couple are still adjusting to parenthood. ‘I just tried to work the car seat,’ he said. ‘You gotta, like, adjust the seatbelts. Adjusting the seatbelt is so much more complicated than my brain can handle.’ Prinze and Gellar met during the filming of the 1997 teen horror film, I Know What You Did Last Summer, but did not actually begin dating until 2000.
Wow … has it been 9 months already since Charlotte Grace was born? WTF?! It’s just … insane. But OY! has she grown into such a cute little girl. She looks so precious … I absolutely love that
Buffy SMG is a mom. These pics are to die … LOVE them.
Newlyishweds Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady got themselves all dolled up this week for the christening of their first born child together Benjamin Rein (who was born back in December of last year). As you may recall, it was in March that we first saw the happy Brady Bündch family all dolled up in their Sunday best for Gisele‘s sister’s wedding in Brazil … but this time, the fam is lookin’ all dressy for a more private family occasion here at home:
It is INSANE how quickly time flies … baby Benjamin was *just* born and now he’s already been christened?! I know it won’t belong ’til the little kid is walking, then driving, then taking over the world as the most beautiful human being to have ever existed! Where does the time go? Congrats to the happy fam on this very special occasion … and blessings for the precious baby boy.

Stepping into the spotlight again
Jermaine Jackson and his son Jaafar were spotted making their grand arrival at Forest Lawn Cemetery here in SoCal yesterday — where the late King of Pop Michael Jackson has been laid to rest — to prepare for a nationwide interview with Larry King for broadcast on CNN for the 1 year anniversary this Friday June 25 of Michael Jackson‘s death. As you may recall, Jermaine sat down with Larry King for multiple interviews in the wake of MJ‘s death last year at the Neverland Ranch (MJ‘s former home) … it seems like the time has come, once again, for Jermaine to step back into the spotlight and bask in the glow of the media attention:
While I understand that there is much interest in securing high profile interviews to mark the anniversary of Michael Jackson‘s death, it just seems a bit disingenuous coming from the Jackson family. I absolutely believe they are hurting from MJ‘s loss but many of them seem all to eager to jump in front of the cameras to talk to anyone who will listen. We got mama Katherine Jackson peddling a book on one side and now Jermaine posing in front of MJ‘s grave on the other side … I guess this the way it’s gonna be on each and every anniversary of MJ‘s death. I really have no interest in hearing from Jermaine, to be honest … will YOU be tuning in?

You ain't nothin' but a Hound Dizzle
On Saturday we got to see photos of Superman Returns star Brandon Routh and his Dexter actress wife Courtney Ford chillin’ with the cast of the new Cirque du Soleil show Viva Elvis at the ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, NV and I’m guessing Snoop Dogg heard about what a great time they had at the show and decided to take his family to see it as well. Snoop and his family celebrated his daughter’s 11th birthday at last night’s performance of Viva Elvis in LV:
As you can see, the entire cast of Viva Elvis wanted to pose for a photo with the Snoop D-O double G and, I understand, were more than happy to sing Happy Birthday to his daughter last night. Snoop declared that the performance of Jailhouse Rock was his fave and was quoted as saying as he left last night’s Viva Elvis show — “Man, this was a defining moment in Snoop history!” I cannot WAIT to see this show myself … this added endorsement by Snoop Dogg is just the icing on the cake for me. I will see this show sometime soon … I cannot wait.

Batman in 'Wonderland'
Earlier this week we learned that Halle Berry and estranged babydaddy Gabriel Aubry reunited in order to take their daughter Nahla Ariela to Disneyland and earlier this month we learned that Heidi Klum and her family spent a day at Disneyland in celebration of her 37th birthday. Today we get to see a few cute photos of Batman star Christian Bale and his family (wife Sibi Blažić and daughter Emmeline) enjoying part of yesterday at Disneyland:
Fans of Disney may recognize that the family is photographed here on the Alice in Wonderland ride in Fantasyland. It’s always so nice to see families looking so happy together … usually when Christian is spotted in public, he looks kinda glum. I love how happy he looks in these photos. I guess it’s kinda impossible to be pissy at Disneyland, the happiest place on Earth! Seeing these photos reminds me … I’m due for a trip down to Anaheim, CA — soon!

Reunited and it feels so good?
Back in April we learned the sad news that Halle Berry and babydaddy Gabriel Aubrey decided to end their 4 year relationship but today we learn that the couple reunited (at least for a short while) to take their daughter Nahla Ariela to Disneyland as a family! It’s unclear if this family excursion is a happy sign that the couple are working on repairing their relationship or not but it looks like they really were one big happy family again … at least for one more day:
Halle Berry reunited with ex Gabriel Aubry Monday afternoon. The two — who split in April after four years of dating — spent 3 1/2 hours at Disneyland with 2-year-old daughter, Nahla. “They seemed very happy together. They were totally interacting: laughing, joking… he even touched her several times on the shoulder,” an eyewitness tells UsMagazine.com. “They seemed very content.” But don’t hold your breath for a reconciliation. “There was no holding hands, no sign that they were back together again,” the onlooker explains. “He spent most of his time with Nahla. She was on his shoulders, he carried her around most of the time. Halle handed her off to him.”
You know, even if Halle and Gabriel don’t get back together together it’s a good sign that they can play nice for the sake of their incredibly beautiful daughter. Ah well … you never know what may happen. They seemed to break up totally randomly … mebbe they’ll get back together totally randomly too!

The white stuff
Madonna‘s little chick-a-dees Lourdes Maria, Rocco John, David Banda and Chifundo Mercy were spotted making their grand entrance into the Kabbalah Centre in London, England last night lookin’ ready to get their church on. All of the children were dressed in sparkling white outfits, save for one …
Now either Lola is far too cool to dress for the occasion or she has grown too old to wear the required dress of the youngest Kabbalah worshippers. Whatever the case may be, she looks infinitely cooler than her little sibs … tho, they look way cuter. It’s just crazy insane how big all of the kids have grown … OY!
