From the tropics to the tundra
When last we saw Jude Law here on the blog he was enjoying the warm fun in the tropics on St. Bart’s with his kiddies and his ladyfriend Sienna Miller. Since then, Jude left Sienna on the island and returned home to the UK to spend some snowy fun with his kids. Here are a few photos of Jude and the children sledding on Parliament Hill in Hampstead earlier today:
Awww … looks like fun. As much as I’m not a fan of snow AT ALL, I can appreciate that outdoor excursions like this can be a lot of fun once-in-a-while. Jude brought his 3 eldest children — Rafferty, Iris and Rudy — to play with him in the snow but while his 4th child — Sophia Lee, borne of his one night stand with Samantha Burke — is still much too young to enjoy fun like this, I’m sure she would’ve appreciated the invite … or, you know, even the acknowledgment of her existence. Sigh. It’s a shame to see Jude be such a good father to some of his children while completely ignoring his youngest :(

Gwen Stefani and family are among the celebs vacationing in St. Bart’s this week and earlier today took her young boys — Kingston James McGregor and Zuma Nesta Rock — shopping for sunglasses … behold:
LOL. Zuma looks like a P.I.M.P. in these snazzy shades. I’m not sure a child this young really needs designer sunglasses but, then again, he really isn’t a normal child now is he? With the glasses on, Zuma looks a lot like Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt, don’t you think? Cute pix.

Ringless and carefree
When last we heard from Elin Nordegren, embattled wife of philandering golf phenom Tiger Woods, it was rumored that she had jetted off to the Alps to enjoy a little holiday on the slopes with her twin sister. But this week, Elin showed up near her Windermere, Florida home with her kids — Sam Alexis and Charlie Axel — in tow, lookin’ happy and carefree. Elin and the kiddies went out for a little stroll on Thursday and then she showed up at their daycare center to pick them up on Friday … here are a few photos:
At least in these photos it appears that Elin is happy … as you can see she is deffo NOT wearing her wedding ring in any of these photos. While she tends to the children at home in Florida, the world continues to wonder where Tiger Woods has slinked off to. Some reports claim he is hiding out in a rehab center in Arizona, other reports claim he’s holed up in a luxury apartment in NYC. Wherever he is, he is deffo doing a great job of staying out of sight … which might be part of why Elin is lookin’ so well. The kids look no worse for the wear (tho Charlie Axel looks a little befuddled by all the attention) so hopefully they’ll be able to survive this mess relatively unscathed. Keep your head up, Elin … and do the right thing, ya hear?

In the wild
Back in November we got our first first look at the first born child of Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze, Jr. as she was debuted in the pages of People magazine. Today we get a new look at little Charlotte Grace as she was carried by her mommy here on the public streets of SoCal:
Don’t you just love how much SMG beams with this precious little girl in her arms … er, harness? She looks beyond thrilled to be a new mom. After the jump, check out better picture of little Miss Charlotte Grace rockin’ her adorable little pink kitty hat … More »
While hubby/daddy David Beckham was bizzy training his buns off in Milan, Italy, wifey/mommy Victoria Beckham was back home here in SoCal tending to the Beckham youngin’s. As you may recall, VB and the boys arrived home from the UK earlier this week so it looks like the first thing on the agenda was a visit to the local cinemaplex to see the most-talked about movie o’ the moment — Avatar:
Apparently in all the Beckham family holiday activities over in England there was no time to go to the movies. I’m glad the Beckham boys finally got to see Avatar but VB should’ve taken them to see the flick in IMAX 3D so their little minds could be blown. Blah, either she doesn’t know any better or she figures the kids are so young they won’t know any better (tho, my money is on the former). Ah well, at least the kiddies are home again in SoCal (apparently back in school too, they are all wearing their school uniforms in this pic) and they’ve finally seen the movie they’ve prolly been dying to see for so long. Happy day at the Beckham manse.

Yesterday we saw photos of Victoria Beckham out and about in London, showing off her newest fashion accessories … today we get to see photos of a more dressed-down VB as she and her sons made their arrival at LAX Airport late last night:
I wrongly guessed that VB and the boys might stay in the UK a bit longer but clearly their plan was to get home as soon after the New Year as possible. I’m not sure if the fam returned to LA last night because the boys have to be back to school or if Vicki B. was just anxious to get back to the warmth of SoCal but the family (sans hubby/daddy David Beckham) is home once again … and the paparazzi were ready and waiting. Welcome home, Beckhams!

Since David Beckham is in Milan, Italy these days training for the upcoming new soccer season with his European team AC Milan, wife and mother Victoria Beckham was left back in the UK to care for the kiddies for the remainder of the Xmas holiday. VB took her boys out for a night of theater (much like she and Becks did just before Xmas a couple of weeks ago) and used the opportunity to show off some of her fave baubles that she very likely picked up from Santa Claus:
Pulling her trilby down to cover her eyes, for once Victoria Beckham appeared to be hiding from the cameras as she left the theatre last night. But if there were any doubts about her identity the bag clasped in her hand soon dispelled them – it was one of Victoria’s treasured Birkin bags. The footballer’s wife, who has her own successful fashion range, owns more than 100 of the leather classics, a collection worth £1.5million. Last night she was modelling a shimmering white version in crocodile skin, carefully co-ordinated with her white wrap coat and trilby. The 35-year-old treated sons Romeo and Cruz to a trip to London’s Dominion Theatre to watch We Will Rock You. The Beckhams, who live in Los Angeles, spent Christmas at Beckingham Palace, their luxury country home near Sawbridgeworth in Hertfordshire. But while most people were out celebrating, Victoria and husband David enjoyed a quiet night in, watching the party on television. According to a source close to the family the couple were joined by David’s extended family for their low-key evening. ‘It was a quiet night, as it was their first New Year without David’s granddad Joe, who died last month,’ an insider said. ‘They just had a few drinks and watched the TV.’
It sounds like Les Beckhams had a very nice and quiet family holiday together this year and it looks like VB was happy to show off this crazy-expensive bag that she added her growing (and expensive) purse collection last Xmas. I believe the Beckham boys have to be back to school next week so they will, very likely, stay in the UK for a few more days before they return home to the sunny warmth of SoCal. I’m sure we’ll be seeing more of this shiny and extremely opulent bag around LA in no time.
Picnic at the beach
Here are a few supercute pics of Alyson Hannigan, hubby Alexis Denisof and their babygirl Satyana as they celebrated the first day of the new year on the beach in Venice, CA. Aly and fam packed a picnic to share at a park near the beach before they went for a family stroll along the water’s edge … behold:
Yesterday was little Sati‘s first New Year’s Day celebration so it looks like her parents wanted to make sure it was a special one. Look at this little girl’s adorable face! She looks so much like both of her parents, she’s a total doll. I think it’s safe to say that Aly and Alexis had themselves a pretty fantastic 2009 with the birth of their firstborn child … I’m certain that things will only get better in 2010 and beyond. It’s always so great to see my fave celeb family enjoying life and one another. I just love them :)

To counterbalance those messy photos of Amy Winehouse, let’s check out a couple of supercute photos of Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban and Sunday Rose enjoying a day at the zoo down under in Australia Thursday afternoon where the happy family got to get up close and personal with a few giraffes:
I am stunned at how big Sunday Rose has grown. Wasn’t she just born like a week ago and now she’s this little girl, big enough to feed carrots to giraffes. These photos are very cute … but considering how quickly this little Miss has grown already, I’m sure it won’t be very long before she turns into a bona fide big kid. Here’s to a happy and prosperous new year for the Kidman-Urban fam.

Yesterday we saw a cute photo of dad Brad Pitt taking his eldest daughters out for a set visit to see their mother Angelina Jolie while she worked and today we get to see a cute photo of daddy Braddy taking his eldest sons, Maddox Chivan and Pax Thien, for a boys’ night out of fun at Dave & Buster’s … behold:
It’s a boys’ day out for Brad Pitt and sons Maddox and Pax! The star, 46, and his younger brother Doug took the two boys to Dave & Buster’s in New York City’s Times Square Wednesday afternoon, UsMagazine.com confirms. (Pitt took Maddox to the same Dave & Busters back in September.) While at the arcade restaurant, Pitt helped Pax, 6, with the controls on “The Big One,” an oversized crane used to grab stuffed animals. After several attempts, they won a giant stuffed animal. The group — surrounded by four security guards — then moved on to war game “Razing Storm.” Pax and Maddox, 8, took hold of the life-size guns and shot at the arcade screen for a few minutes before moving on. While the bearded Pitt watched them play, an eyewitness tells Us he handed out extra Dave & Buster’s game cards to a few children. One boy jumped up and down in excitement when the star gave him the card and patted him on the back, the source says. When a crowd began gathering, Pitt, Doug and the kids got in an elevator to leave. As the doors closed, one onlooker yelled out, “I love Jennifer Aniston!” Although Pitt didn’t look amused, his brother Doug laughed out loud, an eyewitness says.
Playtime dates like this with the boys is nothing new for Brad Pitt. He is fond of taking the kids to D&B’s as well as Mars 2112 (which is another amusement-themed restaurant in NYC). Even with all those bodyguards in tow, it’s nice to know that Brad tries to keep things as real for the kids as possible. No word on how Brad, Ange and their 6 kids will be spending New Year’s Eve but something tells me that they will be all together and having fun!
