Tamar Braxton and Tamera Mowry-Housley are keeping fit with their kids’ help. The television co-hosts recently learned a few workout tips from fitness expert Tiffany Rothe, and took their sons along for the experience.

Tamera and Tamar had their husbands bring their little ones onstage, and then the television personalities immediately got to work. Both Logan (Tamar’s son) and Aden (Tamera’s little one) were simply adorable in their workout gear, which proved that they were coming on the show to get fit.

Tiffany Rothe gives busy moms tips to get back in shape that are based on her experiences as a parent. “After I had my daughter, I wasn’t in the best shape,” says the fitness guru. “You know us new moms tend to have no time for ourselves and we feel guilty of we’re not with our babies. So, I created a workout we could do together.” This exercise routine allows both mom and child to stay healthy while having fun.

Tamar and husband Vincent Herbert have one child together. Tamera and husband Adam Housley are also the proud parents of one son



Laiyah Brown is a natural beauty. The little one recently enjoyed a play date while rocking Afro puffs. “I rock rough and stuff with my Afro puffs,” tweeted mom Monica Brown on her daughter’s behalf.

Laiyah engaged in a bit of karate action while driving around with her puffs. The little one had to even stop the car at one point to prop her leg up on the passenger seat. “This kid is pure comedy!! There’s no stopping her now that she’s feeling better !! Kung-Fu in her car I assume. LOL only #LaiyahShannon,” tweeted Monica.

Although she was having lots of fun alone, Laiyah couldn’t end the day without sharing her adventure with Derrick Rose’s son, PJ. The NBA star’s little one took the wheel as Laiyah sat on the passenger’s side. “I love these two!! Laiyah rolling with her big cousin PJ,” wrote Monica.

The Gibson men had a day out at the gym earlier this week. Daniel Gibson Sr., did a few push-ups and later showed his son, Daniel Jr., a few moves that he can use in the boxing ring.

“Bob and weave game nice,” said big Daniel of his son’s technique. Little Daniel never attempted to fight back during the training but instead practiced a bit of passive defensiveness by moving in the opposite direction of where his father was swinging.


Daniel Sr., is currently undergoing a very public divorce from estranged wife Keyshia Cole. The NBA star recently told media that co-parenting is very challenging because his son is use to seeing his parents together.

“It makes it difficult when he wants to see me or he wants to see her and we ain’t around each other,” said Daniel Sr. “That’s why I am trying, as best as I can,[to] be friends with her. If we are not going to be together, at least we can operate in a way that is good for him to see”

Daniel Jr., is Keyshia Cole and Daniel Gibson Sr.’s only child together. The couple was married for three years before announcing their plans to divorce a few months ago.


Calloway 2

AJ Calloway and wife Dionne are expecting another child. The television personality recently shared the good news of his wife’s pregnancy via Instagram. AJ posted a picture of himself with the family that revealed Dionne’s bump. “Another Calloway on the way,” tweeted the star.

It was just over a year ago that AJ and his wife welcomed their daughter into the world. Little Amy Belle was born on August 12, 2013, to loving parents who couldn’t wait to share her arrival with the world. “We are so thrilled, I am still coming down from the moon… I now know what it feels like to have heaven in my arms,” said AJ in a statement to Extra! shortly after his daughter was born.

Now the star is “simply in love” with his adorable princess and thrilled to be expecting another child who will bring more joy to the family. AJ and Dionne wed on July 11, 2013. They are expecting their second child together.




Cree Summers is enjoying life with her little women. The actress recently shared pictures of herself with her daughters on Black Sand Beach in picturesque Ho’okena Beach Park, which is located in Hawaii. “Have I told you lately that I love You,” captioned Cree underneath one of the pictures of Brave hugging little sister Hero.

Ho’okena Beach Park is one of the most beautiful sites in Hawaii. The historical location is made up of gray and white sand along with clear water that is simply marvelous in appearance. There are numerous activities to participate in at the beach, which include kayaking and snorkeling.

While Cree is enjoying her daughters in Hawaii, producer and director of ‘A Different World’ Debbie Allen is hard at work trying to bring the show back. Although it has been more than two decades since Cree portrayed Winifred on the hit series, Debbie still believes in the message that the actress and other talent delivered onset.

“The difficulty is that it gets very convoluted when you’re mixing old writers and new writers,” says Allen.”Right now we’re kind of at a stand-still. I got really far up that ladder, and then I got kind of stopped. So we’re going to re-investigate it again because it’s such a good idea.”

It would be interesting to see how Debbie manages to make a show such as ‘A Different World’ relevant in the current generation. Check out more pictures of Brave and Hero below!



Reggie Bush is backtracking and correcting comments made about child discipline. The NFL star recently shared a picture of himself with little Briseis, and left a note for critics who took his statement about harsh punishment out of context. “You don’t know us HOMIE! All smiles always Daddy’s Little Princess! #NoFlexZone,” tweeted the star.

Bush came under much scrutiny after telling media that he would discipline his daughter harshly if she did something that warranted such action. “I have a 1-year-old daughter, and I discipline her,” said the star. “I definitely will try to — will obviously not leave bruises or anything like that on her. But I definitely will discipline her harshly depending on what the situation is.”

Reggie was speaking in support Adrian Peterson, who is currently being brought up on felony charges of child abuse for beating his 4-year-old son with a tree branch. Although Bush was trying to get fans to understand both sides of the Peterson case, he ended up making statements that he later had to retract.

“Obviously I’m not going to be spanking a 1-year-old girl,” explained the NFL star during an interview on Wednesday. “We do discipline her a little bit because she does this thing now where if she doesn’t like something or if you say something to her she doesn’t like, she kind of swings at you. So we’re already starting to implement little things like talking to her and saying that’s not OK. I think obviously people took it too far and [said] I was doing much worse and that’s not the case.”

Briseis is Reggie and wife Lilit Bush’s first child together. She was born on May 6, 2013.



Omarion and girlfriend Apryl Jones leave Katsuya with baby Mega. The R&B sensation shields his son from photographers after enjoying a beautiful dinner with his girlfriend.

Although he hasn’t allowed the paps to take pictures of his little one while they are together in public, Omarion has taken lots of photos of his and Apryl’s son and shared them with his Instagram followers. The R&B singer shared one precious photo of himself with little Mega in the car. Omarion held his son close as baby Mega leaned on his shoulder. “The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother,” tweeted the star along with the pic.

Omarion and Apryl are obviously in love with one another and their family as a whole. The R&B singer’s girlfriend recently told media that motherhood has given her a new outlook on life. “It’s amazing,” gushed Jones. “I can’t remember my life before him. I never knew what it was like and I think I gave women not enough credit. I appreciate mothers and I understand it differently. This is the first time I’ve been away from him and I miss him so much.”

Mega is Apryl and Omarion’s first child together. Check out more pictures of the handsome little guy below!



Domestic violence has been in the news a lot lately, and Jamelia is speaking out about her experience. The singer recently told ITV that her daughter encouraged her to leave her abuser.

“It is when my daughter was four weeks old and he hit me when I was breastfeeding her and it was at that point that I realized that being in a relationship is a choice and I am choosing this and I am going to continue to choose this on behalf of my child. Do I want this to be her reality,” explained the star.

Jamelia further discussed her experience with assault and battery by telling media, “The thing with domestic abuse is it’s something you never get over. You can come to terms with it and forgive but the scars will always remain. For me, the best thing I could ever have done was to share my story – the best thing I could do was let other women know that they are not alone because that’s exactly how I felt.”

The United Kingdom singer has a daughter named Tiani,8, with ex-husband Darren Byfield. Jamelia also has a daughter named Teja,13, from her relationship with music manager Terry Wallen.


Matthew Knowles 1

Matthew Knowles has another child. The record producer was recently proven to be the father of real estate agent TaQoya Branscomb’s little one.

TMZ reports,

“According to the DNA test … there’s a 99.998% certainty that Knowles is the biological father of TaQoya Branscomb’s child. Branscomb will now go after Knowles for child support.”

TaQoya named Matthew as the father of her child a few months back after telling media that she and the record producer had relations in 2010. Although he did not deny having a relationship with the former model, Knowles did not submit to a paternity test until after he was ordered to do so by a judge in Houston, Texas.

TaQoya will not join AlexSandra Wright in fighting for child support. AlexSandra also has a child with Matthew named Nixon. Mr. Knowles has four kids in all.


Shepherd 1

Sherri Shepherd has relinquished her rights as a parent to little Lanar Jr., but big Lamar is not letting the former television co-host go without a fight. Lamar Sally recently told PEOPLE magazine exclusively that Sherri promised to be a mother to their child, who was born by way of surrogate last month, and that’s what he expects her to do.

“[Sherri] said, ‘I will love the baby like it’s mine,’” said Sally. “She never said she didn’t want the baby.”

Lamar also accused Sherri of blindsiding him with divorce papers in May, even though several media reports say that he filed for marriage dissolution from her after accusing the former television co-host of committing fraud.

Still in all, Sally expects Shepherd to own up to her responsibilities and, at minimum, agree to be named as little Lamar’s mother on his birth certificate. “I think it’s the worst thing in the world for L.J. to look at his birth certificate at 16 and see it says, ‘Mother unknown,’” said Sally to PEOPLE. A pretrial hearing concerning the matter is expected to take place in Pennsylvania next month.



Not everyone is criticizing Adrian Peterson. Reggie Bush recently ran to the aid of the NFL star by telling media that he too would use harsh tactics if his daughter, Briseis, did something that warranted such punishment.

“I was punished the same way,” said Bush. “And I know a lot of my friends and a lot of the guys I played with, they were punished the same way, too.”

Reggie further explained, “I have a 1-year-old daughter, and I discipline her. I definitely will try to — will obviously not leave bruises or anything like that on her. But I definitely will discipline her harshly depending on what the situation is.”

The NFL star went so far as to say that he would consider using a “switch” if the situation called for it but quickly retracted his statement. “No, I didn’t say a branch or a stick,” recanted the star. “I said spanking. Spanking is different than a branch or a stick.”

Briseis is Reggie and wife Lilit Bush’s first child together.



Jourdan Dun is working hard to spread awareness about the sickle cell disease that her son battles everyday. The actress recently accepted the job as ambassador for the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America, where she will give the details about the illness to millions who may not even know they carry the gene.

“A lot of people don’t know what sickle cell anemia is,” says the star. “It is a genetic blood disease. Normal blood cells are round, but for people who have sickle cell, their blood cells are a half-moon shape. If the blood cells clog up, that is what triggers a trauma crisis. A sickle cell crisis happens if, for example, my son gets an infection, or if he’s too hot or cold—things like that will trigger one.”

Although she was devastated to hear that her little one had the disease, Jourdan says that Riley’s diagnosis didn’t catch her by complete surprise. “In the back of my head I knew there was a possibility that my son would have sickle cell because his father and I are carriers of the genetic trait for it,” explains the model. “But once I got the results back that my son had sickle cell, it really hit me, like, this is real. It is a reality that my son is going to have to deal with this for the rest of his life.”

Even though Riley will have to endure moments of immeasurable pain for years to come, Dunn tells fans not to feel sorry for her family. “I don’t want people to feel sorry for my son or me,” shares the celebrity. “I’m not ashamed about sickle cell anemia. I want to talk about it because there are a lot of the people in the industry who have sickle cell or have a family member who has it, but they don’t talk about it. Many others don’t know if they even carry the gene. I feel like people tend to think of it as a ‘black disease,’ and that if they are Caucasian, it won’t affect them. But it’s not just those of African or Caribbean descent who are at risk; if you are Caucasian, you can also inherit it.”

Riley is Jourdan’s only son. Check out more pictures of the vibrant little one below!



It was a plaid kind of day for Christina Millian and daughter Violet who shared a picture of themselves wearing plaid outfits earlier this week. Christina smiled while placing a hand on Violet’s shoulder in the pic. Of course, Violet could hardly restrict her excitement to a mere smile as she proudly stood beside mom in her beautiful dress.

It’s that kind of bubbly personality coming from Violet that fans can expect to see on Christina’s reality show next year. “She’s got so much character and she’s just a bubbly, bubbly kid,” says the star. “She’s fine [with the cameras used for the show]. We do setups that are just things that we normally do and there’s just a camera there, so she’s fine. I think she’s so used to seeing me work too, that she’s just like, ‘Oh, cool. Another camera.’”

Millian gives more details about the theme of her upcoming show telling media, “I’m in the process of making my album, and right now with the show, we have the concentration of doing a music video. For my family, this is an opportunity for them for the first time being seen on television and diving into their careers and becoming bigger and better.”

Christina’s series is expected to make its debut on E!’s network during the early part of 2015. Violet is the singer’s only child with ex-husband Terius Nash, a.k.a. The Dream.



Is Tamar Braxton pregnant? Maybe so. The singer and reality star was recently interrogated by her sisters after she told them that a vegetable juice blend they were making made her want to throw up.

“Usually when a person throws up when they smell something, they’re pregnant,” said Towanda immediately after Tamar expressed her disgust. The singer became defensive over Towanda’s comment and responded, “It smells disgusting. I’m not pregnant.”

Although Towanda stopped with her inferences, Toni further pried by saying, “That’s what you said before Logan.” The sisters then began to sing a song about expectancy, which annoyed Tamar. “Irritability is just another symptom of pregnancy,” said one of the sisters.

Tamar and husband Vincent Herbert have publicly agreed that their son, Logan, is more than enough for them. It is, however, interesting that the singer was experiencing the same symptoms that she had when pregnant with her son. So is Tamar pregnant? We shall certainly see in coming weeks.
