Demi Lovato is singing Selena Gomez‘s praises after the 25-year-old actress and singer revealed to the world she underwent a kidney transplant over the Summer. «I think that she is a very strong woman,» Demi told People on Friday evening after a performance in Los Angeles. «I’m very happy and proud of her,» she gushed. Selena and Demi’s friendship had been on and off for a few years, with Demi revealing in a 2014 interview that she and Selena had grown apart. The former Disney stars reunited in 2015 and shared an adorably silly selfie on Instagram confirming their friendship was back on the mend. «Friends for years, #sameoldlove,» Demi captioned the photo.
Jennifer Lopez’s twins are growing up right before our eyes. Nine-year-old Max and Emme had their first day of fourth grade this week, and their famous mom couldn’t help but be a regular parent for a second — you know, amid her life as a glamorous performer and actress — to show off the momentous occasion on Instagram. «So proud of my babies… #notbabiesanymore #4thgrade #love,» she captioned the photo of them in their uniforms.
Jennifer and her ex-husband Marc Anthony blessed the world with their «coconuts,» as J Lo calls the twins, in February 2008, and ever since then, we’ve been obsessed with watching them and their fun lives. They are indeed the perfect combination of their mom and dad, looking adorable in their matching blazers and cute smiles.
Max and Emme had the Summer of all Summers before they started school. The twins spent time hanging out by the pool and beach in the Hamptons with their mom’s new boyfriend, Alex Rodriguez, and even down in Miami at Alex’s home with his daughters.
If you thought Empire‘s Cookie Lyon was fierce, just wait until you see Taraji P. Henson’s newest role. The trailer for Proud Mary dropped on Thursday, and to say it’s explosive would be an understatement. As the title track by Creedence Clearwater Revival plays in the background, Henson’s leather-clad character gets ready for her typical day, which includes the usual activities of being a deadly assassin. You can catch all the action when the film hits theaters on Jan. 12, but until then, enjoy this sneak peek.
Alec Baldwin is known for his crazy and hilarious antics on screen (if you haven’t seen his Donald Trump impression on SNL, you haven’t lived), but in real life, he’s also crazy about his family. In addition to bringing his 21-year-old daughter Ireland, whom he shares with ex Kim Basinger, as his red carpet date from time to time, the actor also loves to post pictures of his three kids with wife Hilaria, sons Rafael and Leonardo and daughter Carmen, on social media. Seriously, he’s like one of those dorky, proud dads who is constantly bragging about his kids — and we can’t get enough! See some his best family moments ahead.
Chris Pratt spent some quality time with his son, Jack, while in Hawaii this week. The actor has been spending time in Hawaii while filming Jurassic World, and he took to Instagram on Thursday to share pictures from his recent fishing trip, writing how «proud» he felt when Jack insisted on holding a barracuda himself. Chris’s posts about his adorable son come just a few days after he was spotted hanging out at the beach, blessing us all with some new shirtless snaps. Meanwhile, his other half, wife Anna Faris, has been rocking a bikini while filming the remake of Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell’s classic 1987 film Overboard. Family goals, right?
Ashley Graham seriously brought the heat during her recent Lip Sync Battle against Jermaine Fowler. In a clip from Wednesday’s upcoming episode, the supermodel and America’s Next Top Model judge gave a sexy rendition of Shania Twain’s «That Don’t Impress Me Much» that would definitely impress the country superstar herself. Aside from flaunting her figure in a leopard two-piece — reminiscent of the one Shania wears in her iconic music video — Ashley wasn’t afraid to work the crowd by crawling on the floor. Grab a fan and a tall glass of water and watch the steamy video above.
I like to check with Jameis from time to time during the offseason to see what’s going on in his life now that it’s quiet and his Florida State drama is long gone. From what I’ve come to learn about the guy from his social media trail, Famous leads a very quiet life at his Florida house and really seems to enjoy hanging out with his doodle. I know, it’s still shocking to me too.
And that’s how he spent his Father’s Day. With his fur baby girl doodle doing what dog dads do: throw the frisbee and make videos of the dog cooling off in the pool.
I don’t know why, but I’m mesmerized by Jameis baby talking his doodle. It’s stuff you don’t see in the media. Now I know what FSU fans were talking about when they said the media doesn’t show the good or soft side of Jameis. It’s definitely a media bias.
Not me. I’ve been on this Jameis/doodle train from the beginning. And I can’t stop watching him interact with that dog. I smell a Fox NFL Sunday feature brewing.
That’s a proud dad right here:
George Clooney has remained pretty quiet about the details surrounding his twins with wife Amal, but his parents, not so much. After George’s mom, Nina, revealed the sexes of the babies to Vogue back in February, she and George’s dad, Nick, spoke to Fox 19 reporter Tricia Macke about their «gorgeous, beautiful» grandchildren just a day after they were born. «They are gorgeous, and Nina swears the little boy has George’s nose,» Nick said after speaking to George and Amal over Skype. «They have dark hair, they look great. Amal is superwoman, she is just amazing. She was telling us just last week that she was as big as a house, but of course for her that would be a very small house.»
Nick also revealed that he and Nina previously doubted whether George would ever have children of his own, adding,»When we met Amal, we got that figured out in a hurry. Just as I did, George married up. Both George and Amal are doing wonderfully well . . . and now, at long last, so are we.» George and Amal named their new bundles of joy Alexander and Ella, which are way better than «Casa» and «Amigos» (the names of George’s Casamigos tequila brand), which George recently joked that Amal had forbidden him to do.
Chrissy Teigen and 1-year-old daughter Luna are currently on tour with John Legend, and on Tuesday, the brood squeezed in some quality family time at the Seattle Mariners game in Washington. While John and Chrissy looked adorable as always, it was little Luna who ended up stealing the show. With help from her mom and dad, Luna likely melted the entire crowd into a puddle when she took to the mound and threw the first pitch before the Mariners faced off against the Minnesota Twins. Naturally, Chrissy and John shared photos from their fun outing on Instagram later that evening. «Proud papa #LunasFirstTour,» John captioned a snap of him holding Luna on the baseball field.
Back in 2014, Chrissy hit the field at Dodger Stadium in LA to throw out the ceremonial first pitch. Despite drinking margaritas with her dad before the big event, the model threw a nearly perfect pitch while also looking sexy in a pair of blue short shorts and knee-high socks. Clearly Chrissy passed on her baseball skills to Luna.
Singer and actor Matthew Morrison and photographer and travel expert Zach McDuffie are on a mission to break the stereotype of the frumpy dad. Their new line, Sherpapa Supply Co., aims to bring the modern family man a line of high-quality products like locally grown organic cotton shirts, “manly” diaper bags that last for every season of fatherhood, hats, bandanas, field kits and more.
As the proud father of a little girl, McDuffie understands the inconveniences that arise during fatherhood and the opening in the market for great dad products. Sure, men can carry a diaper bag or backpack when on baby-duty, “But the thing is, you have to carry all of your wife’s gear because they don’t make anything cool for dads,” says McDuffie. “Guys should have something of their own to be proud of.”
M4 Diaper Bags, the anchor products to the Sherpapa Supply Co. brand, make everyday father duty and family adventures more feasible. “It’s really the basis for our whole brand,” says McDuffie. “We just want that lovely classic look for the modern American family man. It’s something that’s meant to last as an heirloom piece as opposed to something that you just use once and then pass it on.”
The essential canvas bag comes with eight gusseted side pockets, easy to travel pouches, a leather changing pad and reusable containers, making it much easier to stay organized. The utilitarian bag functions as an overnight hospital bag for when the baby comes, a heavy duty diaper bag, and later (during the toddler years) an activity bag to fill with f coloring books and snacks.
Even moms appreciate the variety of colors and patterns available. “Women appreciate a good bag,” says Morrison, “it’s the bag that everyone wants because it’s more functional.”
McDuffie explains the meaning of Sherpapa in a press release as “a strong family leader, guide, and protector of our children’s future. It is also is a term of endearment for a beloved father or grandfather. It is a combination of the words sherpa (expert guide or mentor) and papa (universal term for father), but also a reference to cher papa, which in French means ‘dearest papa.’” The term papa, Morrison adds, has an acronym the company supports: Protect Aid Prepare and Advise.
Sherpapa Supply Co. has collaborated with Gilt.com to expand their reach to the Gilt audience. “Gilt has a really good channel for the storytelling aspect, so it’s not just launching a brand with cool bags and cool apparel,” says McDuffie. “We’re really trying to tell a story of what a sherpapa is, and that’s a modern family leader.” Officially launching on June 1st, favorite Sherpapa items along with Father’s Day gifts (hand painted baseball bats and canoe paddles) and exclusive products curated specifically for the partnership will be sold on Gilt.com.
“Being a dad is the best job in the world and there’s a lot of great dads that are really proud of being dads,” says McDuffie. “But there’s not a lifestyle brand that really supports that, until now.”
