The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Kim Kardashian-West and her daughter, North, were spotted at the Del Mar Racetrack in San Diego, California, on Wednesday and the two were in color sync.
Kim wore a fashionable tan outfit that was fit for summer. Her daughter matched her style with a tan shirt and shorts of her own. Kim and North met up with other family members who also sported formal wear.
Kim and her husband, Kanye West, are the center of attraction in the upcoming issue of Harper’s Bazaar. Mrs. West shares everything from her beloved selfies to what she would do if she were invisible. “I would probably creepily follow my kids around [if I were invisible], see how they act, see what they talk about,” she says. “I record my daughter just talking because the things she says are so funny. I could watch her talk all day.”
Kim Kardashian-West also discussed how she would like to be perceived by her public. “I’d like to be remembered as someone who was smart in business, works hard, and can be sexy and a mom,” she shares. “A powerful but still sexy, nonconforming woman.”
Get the reality star’s full interview with her husband when the latest issue of Harper’s Bazaar hits newsstands on August 16, 2016. Kim and Kanye West have two kids, North and Saint, together.

She may be the shortest member of the U.S. delegation but Simone Biles is definitely not the weakest competitor. In fact, the gymnast is one of the best on the squad. The 19-year-old Texas native has won three world championships and recently did a full twisting double back that made fellow athletes stand in awe of her talent.
“I know exactly how difficult that move is because I worked so long and so hard on it,” says 1996 Olympian Shannon Miller. “When Simone does it, you just get so jealous because she just floats.”
Biles exhibits incredible confidence during her performances. The gymnast, however, wasn’t always as poised. Simone’s mother, Nellie, tells TIME that her daughter’s first meet was challenging. “She said she heard every noise, everyone yelling in the arena, and she couldn’t get focused,” Nellie says. Simone was pulled from the event by her coach and given more chances to practice before competing again.
Now, the young star is unstoppable. “Typically gymnastics careers have peaks and valleys, but Simone has blown that apart,” Shannon says. “She’s like, You know what, I’m just going to hang out at the top, I’m good here.”
Simone also comments on her success. “I have everything I need, and I don’t feel like there are any blanks in my life left unfilled,” she shares. See what else the star athlete has to say about her career and personal life in the latest issue of TIME magazine.
Introducing Kameron Smith! Chanel and Torrey Smith released pictures from their newborn’s first photo shoot and they are simply adorable.
Kameron is resting in his father’s arms in one candid. The infant is small enough to fit into one of his father’s hands. Another series of pictures shows Kameron wearing a knitted crown and blanket. The little one is the epitome of cute while sleeping.
Fans became concerned about the health of baby Kameron after Torrey Smith told them that his then-pregnant wife was experiencing complications. “The results came back that he does not have Trisomy 18,” Torrey said in an open letter on Instagram.
“We have been talking about what else it could be and have been preparing for whatever results lie ahead,” Smith added. “I’m not worried about it a single bit,” he exclaimed. “I always believed that it takes special parents to provide and show love to a kid with special needs.”
Kameron Smith is Torrey and Chanel’s second child. The couple’s oldest son, TJ, celebrated his second birthday in April.
Ellen Pompeo is focused on rearing girls who are confident and strong. The actress tells media that she surrounds Stella and Sienna with images of empowered African American women.
“My daughters are black so it’s very important to me that they see a lot of images of beautiful, powerful, strong black women,” Ellen shares. “Every time there is a black woman on a magazine cover, whether it is Kerry Washington or whoever it is, I make sure that magazine is in my house and on my table. For me, that’s super important.”
It’s also important for the girls to see President Obama and the family in the spotlight. “I feel really fortunate that they are growing up in a time [in which] the first president my daughter knows is Barack Obama,” Ellen says. “That’s an incredible gift.”
Seeing positive imagery is essential to 6-year-old Stella who decided to explore the world of medicine after visiting the set of Grey’s Anatomy with mom. “Linda Klein is our medical producer, wonderful woman [and] good friend of mine, and she just wants to go straight to Linda’s office and play with all the medical things,” Ellen said of her daughter last year. “She wants to be an emergency room doctor,” the actress added.
Ellen and husband Chris Ivery have two kids together. The couple’s youngest daughter, Sienna, will celebrate her second birthday next month.
Cree Summer and her daughters, Brave and Hero, are taking on Santa Barbara. The actress recently shared pictures from the family’s vacation at the beautiful 78-acre Bacara Resort. Brave and Hero took full advantage of the beauty that is California.
The sisters were photographed while basking in the view from their hotel room. Brave’s full attention was given to the horizon while Hero set her sights on other things. “Early Morning Savagery,” Cree captioned. The celebrity mom also shared a picture of Hero enjoying the beach and hanging out with dad.
Many remember Cree from the hit series A Different World. The actress was the free-spirited character whose hair made a fashion statement. “Believe it or not, on A Different World, I was very unhappy with my hair,” Cree admitted during a recent interview. “People don’t know that,” she added.
“That was not a happy hair time for me but I’m happy that people were inspired by it, though. Debbie Allen had taken my hair and dyed it red and they used to curl it with a curling iron, and it wasn’t until I left A Different World at 23, that I learned how to do my hair and fell in love with it.”
Now, Cree shows off her curls. “When I started making records and touring with my music, I started loving my hair,” she shared. “It really became an identity… something for me to hide behind when I was insecure, and … to show off when I felt confident. But now I’m in a different stage, I’m in my 40’s, I’m a mother and it’s in a bun. I call it the Mom Bun.”
Summer days in Anguilla proved fun for Tia Mowry-Hardrict and the family. The celebrity mom shared pictures of her with husband Cory Hardrict and son, Cree, on vacation.
One picture featured the family in water. Cree placed his arms around his dad while Tia got in close for the photo. “#anguilla we are in [love],” Mrs. Hardrict wrote. “Until next time.” Tia also shared a candid of her son with his father, uncles, and cousin. “The men,” she captioned.
Motherhood continues to change Tia’s world. “My son has taught me life-changing lessons,” the actress wrote in an open letter. “He’s showed me how to embrace the simple things in life. Before I was a mom I was all over the place. I was very ambitious and I had all these goals—and now I can be ambitious while at the same time stopping to smell the roses.”
Sometimes the roses don’t smell so well. “I was completely embarrassed when my son was 2-years-old and he had a tantrum at the farmer’s market,” Tia told fans. “I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, people are going to judge me! They’ll say that I can’t take care of my kid out in public.’ But I got over that moment. I started to confide in my other friends who are moms and they were like, ‘Girl, I go through the same thing.'”
Russell Wilson is embracing his new life as husband and stepfather. The NFL star recently told media that marrying Ciara and becoming a parental figure to her son, Future Zahir, was the best thing to happen in his life.
“[Ciara] has been an inspiration since day one, and her little one, too, just watching him,” Russell said. “I was saying to somebody the other day that being a stepfather is one of the most loving things you can do,” he added.
Parenting little Future has taught Russell the importance and power of love. “You really, really learn how to love,” he explained. “Especially when it’s not yours, you know, you realize that every kid matters in this world. You know, every person matters. Every child matters. Every heart matters. Every soul matters. Every mind matters. And that’s why we’re here honestly, just for situations like that. That’s what I think about.”
Ciara and Russell Wilson wed at the Peckforton Castle in England earlier this month. The couple was in courtship for more than a year before tying the knot in front of family members and friends. Future Zahir is Ciara’s son with rapper Nayvadius Cash. He celebrated his second birthday in May.
Days after being blindsided by divorce, Keshia Knight-Pulliam breaks her silence about her troubled marriage. The expectant actress recently opened up to ET Online about her relationship with estranged husband Ed Hartwell.
“It’s hurtful,” she shared. “I knew I couldn’t be silent, because this isn’t about money. This isn’t about fame. This isn’t about social media likes or follows. This is about my character — my integrity as a woman being attacked — and that’s not OK.”
Ed Hartwell filed for divorce earlier this week after just seven months of marriage to Keshia. The star athlete cited “irreconcilable differences” as his reason for wanting the dissolution and requested Keshia’s daughter be subjected to a paternity test after birth.
“This is his baby,” Keshia told ET. “He wanted more children. He was excited once he found out that we were having a little girl. There was never a question about that. … [At] no point after we got pregnant was there an issue of the fact that we’re having a baby.”
Regardless of the challenges currently present, Keshia is committed to moving forward for the sake of her child. “There’s a baby in the middle of this,” she stressed. “Regardless, if we don’t want to be married, that’s fine, because we agree on that. But this baby is what’s important.”
Keshia Knight-Pulliam is expecting her and Ed Hartwell’s daughter to arrive in coming months. The little one is her first child.
Blac Chyna was joined by family members and friends in celebrating Mary Jo Campbell’s birthday in San Diego on Tuesday. The expectant star looked fabulous in a mini dress that hugged her curves and showed off her bump.
Kim Kardashian gave Chyna lots of love during the party. The ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ star told social media fans “it’s going down in San Diego tonight” right before rubbing Blac Chyna’s stomach.

There was a bit of drama in the Kardashian clan earlier this week as Chyna’s fiance, Rob Kardashian, deleted all photos of her on Instagram after an argument. Many fans took note of the changes and thought that Rob and Chyna had called it quits. Sources close to the celebrity couple squashed such rumors by telling media that Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian were back on good terms after a small lover’s quarrel.
Chyna and Rob are expecting their first child to arrive in coming weeks. Kim Kardashian has expressed her excitement in seeing her brother in a healthy relationship. “We’re all on board,” she told GQ magazine. “We definitely see that my brother is happy and getting healthy, and whatever gets him to that place, you know, we’re happy for him. Chyna’s a sweet girl, and I think we all have so many things going on in our lives that we just want my brother to be happy.”
In addition to making room for baby, Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian are also planning a wedding. The couple will tie the matrimonial knot in coming months.
The Kardashians celebrated grandma Mary Jo Campbell’s birthday and the grand opening of her new kids store in San Diego on Tuesday, and little Saint was in attendance. The youngest son of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West made a rare appearance at Mary Jo’s store. Kim held Saint close while North walked beside them with her aunt Khloe and cousin Penelope.
Kanye West was not in attendance at the party. Rumor has it that he and Calvin Harris may collaborate in the distant future. A source close to Calvin tells E! News that Harris “wants to make some music with Kanye down the road.” There is no word from Kanye’s camp as to whether a partnership with Calvin is in the making.
Coco Austin has a partner in her daughter, Chanel. The celebrity mom recently shared pictures from a Nutrifield red carpet event that she attended with her little one.
“Shout out to Chanel for holding me down all day at my event #nutrifield,” Austin said. The star mom also shared a picture of herself doing a yoga pose with her sister. “Chanel’s 1st acroyoga pic,” Coco captioned. “The best I can do with a dress on.”
Nutrifield leads the way in manufacturing hydroponic nutrient solutions. The company has passionate staff who are driven by the saying, “a body in motion tends to stay in motion.”
Coco Austin is the ideal ambassador for the brand since she is focused on healthy living. Many were critical during the celebrity mom’s expectancy because she only gained thirteen pounds. “When I look at pictures of myself, I would second-guess that person too,” Coco said. “My friends were like, ‘Wait until the last month: Your bump is really gonna pop!’ But then I was nine months and I looked like I was just six months.” Austin attributed her small bump to her abdominal muscles that held strong until the end. “My doctor said there is no need to worry,” she told fans.
Jaden Smith is one of several young stars featured in Baz Luhrmann’s The Get Down. The Netflix series addresses Hip Hop and its South Bronx origins. Jaden is the ideal choice for such series since he has the gift of lyricism.
“It started in the South Bronx—well, different places in the Bronx at different times,” the young star tells Complex of the Hip Hop genre. “Particularly our story The Get Down, 1977 is where we start off.”
The narrative may begin with the birth of a different kind of music but The Get Down addresses more than beats and rhythm. “It’s pretty much all following these kids, fictional kids in the Bronx and it’s telling their story and giving all types of historical facts,” Jaden explains. “It’s also painting the picture of the Bronx crumbling down—the landlords are burning down apartment buildings just to get the insurance. It’s just painting the dystopia of the broken, crumbling down Bronx, on fire at all times.”
Although the challenges of the time were intense, those who created Hip Hop overcame oppression and made beautiful tunes. “A lot of innovative ideas come from struggle,” Jaden shares. “Instead of picking up a gun, they pick up a spray can, a mic, a record, they plug in their turntables. That is when we’re at our peaks of magical realism and when we’re not there we drop below.”
Whether Democrat or Republican, you have to admit that Michelle Obama brought the house down during last night’s Democratic National Convention (DNC). The first lady got personal as she discussed her experiences in the White House and her first impressions as a parent when her husband took office in 2009.
“I will never forget that winter morning as I watched our girls, just 7 and 10 years old, pile into those black SUVs with all those big men with guns,” Mrs. Obama said. “At that moment I realized that our time in the White House would form the foundation for who they would become and how well we managed this experience could truly make or break them. That is what Barack and I think about every day as we try to guide and protect our girls through the challenges of this unusual life in the spotlight, how we urge them to ignore those who question their father’s citizenship or faith.”
The first lady went on to tell supporters that their vote in the fall will alter the course of history. “Make no mistake about it,” she shared, “this November when we go to the polls that is what we’re deciding, not Democrat or Republican, not left or right. No, in this election and every election is about who will have the power to shape our children for the next four or eight years of their lives.”
See what else Michelle Obama said during the DNC below. Tonight’s meeting will host the “Mothers of the Movement” as they discuss gun violence in America.
It looks like Keshia Knight Pulliam has reached the end of the road in her marriage to Ed Hartwell. The star athlete has reportedly filed for divorce from his expectant wife, according to court records obtained by TheYBF.com on Monday.
The media source states,
“We’ve learned that former NFL linebacker Ed Hartwell filed divorce papers in a Fulton County, Georgia courthouse this morning. He filed the divorce complaint under Edgerton Hartwell II and cited irreconcilable differences, ‘such as constant disagreements on life changing decisions that couples typically make together.'”
Ed Hartwell also allegedly wants a paternity test to prove that Keshia’s little one is his child.
News of divorce comes days after Keshia shared the joys of expectancy with her podcast fans. “She is spoiled already,” the expectant star said of her daughter. “I am so excited,” Keshia gushed. “I just can’t wait for this journey.”
Keshia Knight Pulliam and Ed Hartwell shocked fans with a surprise New Year’s Eve wedding. The actress shared news of her expectancy earlier this month. Listen to Keshia’s latest podcast in which she dotes on her unborn daughter here!
