Whitney Houston, who is currently on tour in Australia where she has been WOWing the crowd (well, not all of the crowds) on her Nothing But Love World Tour, took some time during her concert stop in Adelaide, Australia to wish her daughter a Happy Birthday on the concert stage. Bobbi Kristina was brought on stage where she was surprised with a birthday cake and a serenade from her fabulous mother:
Whitney Houston added two new songs to her set during her concert Wednesday in Adelaide, Australia. Halfway through the show, during the “unplugged” portion when Houston, 46, performs old hits, she announced it was her daughter Bobbi Kristina’s 17th birthday, a source close to the singer tells PEOPLE. Houston then sang “Who Would Imagine a King” from The Preacher’s Wife. “[It's] one of Krissy’s favorites,” the source says, “and is not in the show.” Then a birthday cake was rolled out on stage, and Houston invited her daughter to come up, joined by her dancers and another tune – “Happy Birthday,” which was sung by the entire audience. Mother and daughter also celebrated the occasion in Sydney earlier in the week during a stop on the singer’s Nothing But Love world tour. “They rented a beautiful boat and took a four-hour cruise all around Sydney Harbor with Krissy’s friends, the dancers and family members,” adds the source. “That was the pre-birthday celebration. The cake at the concert was a complete surprise to Krissy. She had no idea!”
How sweet! Now this is one of the perks of having a DIVA as a mother … she can wish you a Happy Birthday unlike anyone else can. It looks like Bobbi Kris had herself a very special, really wonderful 17th birthday … thanks to her loving mother Whitney Houston. Love it!!

Brangelina & Shiloh Nouvel tag along
The Jolie-Pitt twins have surfaced once again!! Vivienne Marcheline and Knox Léon were spotted in Venice, Italy with their parents Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie after a visit to the ice cream shop! As you can see from this supercute photo, the kiddies seemed to be enthralled by their iced treats:
Big sister and notorious tomboy Shiloh Nouvel tagged along for the outing. You can see a cute pic of the little tyke after the jump … More »
Grandmammy Lynne Spears tags along
Mama Britney Spears and Grandmammy Lynne Spears took the young’ns, Sean Preston and Jayden James, to the movies to see Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief at a theater in Calabasas, CA last night. As you can see, the Spears boys took a page from the Beckham boys’ playbook and dressed up for the occasion in superhero costumes:
You may recall that little Cruz Beckham got all dolled up as Transformers Autobot leader Optimus Prime at his birthday party a couple of weeks ago … and today we see that both Spears boys dressed up as Spider-Man. So cute. It’s nice to see Lynne Spears hanging out with her grandkids again … it’s been some time since we’ve seen them all together. It’s a shame that Britney doesn’t look as happy as she did over the weekend … mebbe she saves her sunny smile for daytime? In any event, I sure hope the Spears‘ enjoyed themselves a nice time at the movieshow last night.

Needs more twins
Here’s a sight that we should prolly get used to seeing in the coming weeks and months … Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie took most of their children — Maddox Chivan, Zahara Marley, Pax Thien and Shiloh Nouvel — for a boat ride on the canals of Venice, Italy yesterday afternoon. Because you kinda have to get around by boat taxi in the water city of Venice, this will very likely be an every day occurrence for the Brangelina brood:
Unfortch, the twin babies were not brought along on this outing. I hope we do get to see more of them since they are in Venice and have been sighted more often in the last 2 weeks than in all of last year. Let’s pray they haven’t been locked away in cages for another 6 months ;) I know that corralling 6 kids at once is tough but it’s kinda what Brangelina have signed up for. Photos like this need more twins!

5 months after Sophia Lee is born, she reportedly finally meets her father
Can it be? At long last …? Has Jude Law finally met, in person, the child he fathered with babymama Samantha Burke 5 months ago? Apparently … he has. Jude Law was spotted in Miami, FL this weekend going in to a neutral office to meet with Samantha Burke, her mother and 5 month old Sophia Lee so that terms of child-support could be discussed. As far as we know, this was the first time that Jude laid eyes on his precious newborn baby girl:
Jude Law has met American model Samantha Burke for the first time since she gave birth to his love child. The 37-year-old actor sat down with Miss Burke, and his lawyer in Florida to draw up plans on how he should support baby Sophia. It is the first time they have come face-to-face following revelations that the 24-year-old Miss Burke was carrying his love child, now five months old, last summer. He initially met his lawyer Maurice Kutner for six hours last Thursday before the planned meeting with Miss Burke in Miami over the weekend. The actor, who has rekindled his relationship with Sienna Miller, looked harassed as he arrived at the city’s airport the previous day. Baby Sophia was born last September in Florida – Law was not present at the birth. She was conceived during a night Law he had shared with Miss Burke after they met in a nightclub in New York while he was filming Sherlock Holmes in December 2008. She is Law’s fourth child – he has three other children with ex-wife Sadie Frost – but it is Miss Burke’s first. They are believed to have met up on Saturday and were pictured entering an office block where plans for Sophia’s upbringing and maintenance were settled. Miss Burke, her mother Lea, and baby Sophia are staying at the luxurious Mandarin Oriental hotel in Miami. He faces the prospect of a substantial maintenance payout to cover baby Sophia’s living costs over the next 18 years. The total is estimated to be more than £2million, including £5,000-a-month living expenses with school fees and medical bills on top.
Blah! I have to say, while I am personally still totally disgusted that Jude has waited this long to meet the child he fathered, I am happy to see that the first meeting has finally taken place. I highly doubt, if the last 5 months are any indication, that Jude plans to have a close relationship with his newest child (at least, for the foreseeable future) but at least he is stepping up to provide for his newest child. At least little Sophia Lee is still too small to know what is going on … I sincerely hope for everyone concerned that Jude decides to have a loving and personal relationship with his daughter by the time she is old enough to understand who her father is. I suppose this is a step in the right direction.
Coo-Coo for Coco
Mama Courtney Cox-Arquette brought her only begotten child Coco to work with her yesterday on the set of Cougar Town. As you can see from the following ADORABLE photos, Court and Coco shared a few kisses in between takes:
It’s crazy how big Coco has grown … I remember when she was a newborn and now she’s a big kid. These pics are so cute. I’m glad to see that Courteney is still hard at work on new eps of Cougar Town, too. But these smoochy pics of Courteney and Coco are just too much ;)

Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!
New York City got dumped on again by another load of snow last night leaving much of the city crippled today … but for Hugh Jackman and his children Oscar Maximilian and Ava Eliot, well, the latest dumping is cause for jubilant celebration:
While I’m certain the vast majority of NYers are sick and tired of the snow (which we, here in LA, are gloriously without) I’d be willing to bet that the Jackmans are not only thrilled with all the snow they’ve been getting this Winter … they prolly are hoping for more! Let’s hope for the sanity of our friends in the Big Apple, their presumed wishes don’t come true ;)

While Brad Pitt is the manny
Last week we learned that the entire Brangelina brood made their way to Venice, Italy to take up temporary residence while mama Angelina Jolie begins work on her new film The Tourist. Just one day after, we saw cute photos of Brangelina taking their eldest daughters Zahara Marley and Shiloh Nouvel out for a boat ride on the canals of Venice … you may recall that some people mistakenly believed that it was not Shiloh on the outing but the youngest Jolie-Pitt son Knox Léon. Today we get to see new photos of Angelina and Brad hard at work in the city of Paris, France … Ange was bizzy filming scenes for her new film and Brad was bizzy caring for the kiddies:
As Johnny Depp told [mentioned] this weekend, director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck began shooting Columbia Pictures thriller The Tourist in Paris, France on Tuesday. [Here is a] first look at photos of Angelina Jolie on the set. The film is a remake of the 2005 French thriller Anthony Zimmer. It concerns an American tourist (Depp) who finds his life in danger when a female Interpol agent (Jolie) uses him as a dupe to flush out an elusive criminal with whom she once had an affair.
Yes, while Angelina was bizzy filming her café scenes, Brad was bizzy elsewhere with the kids. After the jump, check out photos of Brad with Shiloh — who was showing off her adorable new boyish haircut … More »
Birthday lurve goes out to the littlest Beckham this weekend as Cruz David turned a whopping 5 years old yesterday and celebrated with family and friends at XMA Extreme Sports Studio in North Hollywood, CA. As you can see from the photos below, Cruz got all dolled up in costume as Transformers Autobots leader Optimus Prime for the occasion:
Cruz Beckham must have one hell of a dressing up box. The youngest Beckham boy jumps at every opportunity to step out in a fancy dress costume, and his fifth birthday was certainly going to be no exception. Dressed from head-to-toe as a Transformer, the youngest Beckham boy managed to upstage his mother Victoria yet again as he larked about for the cameras. Cruz played up for the paparazzi as he and his older brother, seven-year-old Romeo, who was wearing one of dad David’s Sport Relief t-shirts, arrived at the Xtreme Martial Arts World Headquarters in Hollywood with Victoria for his birthday celebration yesterday. In his Optimus Prime outfit, he was all smiles as he leapt out of their people carrier with his arms outstretched before poking an amused looking Romeo’s face with his finger. Victoria, dressed in skinny blue jeans and towering black heels, grabbed Cruz’s hand and led him into the venue. It’s clearly one of Cruz’s favourite places as he also celebrated his fourth birthday last year, again in fancy dress, this time dressed as Wolverine from the X Men. And his smile never left his face and was beaming with happiness as he left a few hours later, still clutching mum’s hand, and laden down with party bags. Later, Victoria took the boys, who were joined by older brother Brooklyn, 10 and Gordon Ramsay and his family for dinner at the Pirate’s Dinner Adventure. Although it was only natural that he was the centre of attention on his birthday, Cruz wasted no time in ditching his robot costume and getting the pirate gear on.
Yes, Cruz Beckham really does love his costume birthday parties. If you recall, he dressed up as both Iron Man and Wolverine for his birthday celebration last year … this year, he opted for Optimus Prime and a Pirate. It’s really nice that his parents let him express this side of himself … I bet he had a blast. Earlier this week, I erroneously reported that mama Victoria Beckham was headed back to the UK from NYC but, as you can see, that was wrong. Vicki B. was headed, instead, for home so she could be with her son on his birthday … sorry ’bout that. In any event, Birthday Lurve goes out to little Cruz today …. here’s hoping he had a great little bday!!
