Cree Hardrict is five years old! The son of Tia Mowry Hardrict and Cory Hardrict celebrated his fifth birthday on Saturday. His mom and dad gave him a shark themed party.
“Cree is really into sharks,” Tia told PEOPLE exclusively. “He can tell you all kinds of sharks — hammerhead, reef. I wanted to have the theme tailored to him.”
The celebrity mom was spot-on as everything about Cree’s party concerned sharks. The youngster had a cake with the creatures featured on it as well as a costume that referenced sharks. Tia and Cory even gave their son a remote controlled submarine. “He just had to have it,” Tia said. “He was reminding me of it every day before his party.”
Although all of the festivities were grand, it wasn’t until attendees sang the birthday song to Cree that Tia realized her little man was growing up. “When everyone started to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to Cree and I saw the number five on the cake, it all just hit me,” the star mom told media. “I realized, ‘Oh my gosh, my child is really and truly growing up!'”
Cree is Tia and Cory Hardrict’s only child. He was born on June 28, 2011. See more pictures from the youngster’s party on the next page!
“It’s been a work in progress for years. Our sources say Shaq was initially a little chilly on the idea — but things have changed, and we’re told the NBA legend has officially given his blessing for the VH1 show.”
The series will feature all four of Shaq’s kids along with the star athlete’s ex-wife, Shaunie O’Neal. The theme of the show will, of course, be family but with an interesting twist.
Shaunie and Shaq will put their co-parenting skills to work while guiding their kids in the right direction. The children have big dreams and it is up to Shaunie and Shaq to help nurture those aspirations. Shareef, who has great potential as a basketball player, will be featured on the show as well as 13-year-old Shaqir who celebrated his birthday in style while the cameras were rolling.
Shaquille O’Neal has two sons, Shaqir and Shareef, and two daughters, Amirah and Me’arah, with ex-wife Shaunie O’Neal. Both Shaunie and Shaq have kids from previous relations. The O’Neals’ reality series is expected to make its television debut in coming months.
She’s got the glow. Blac Chyna showed off her curves and vibrant style during a public appearance on Monday. The expectant star wore a pretty aquamarine dress while spending the day in West Hollywood.
The outfit showed off Chyna’s bump as it hugged her stomach like a glove. The businesswoman topped off her outfit with thong sandals that were flat and casual.
It seems that Blac Chyna has been stepping up her fashion game since announcing her and Rob Kardashian’s expectancy. The star’s maternal style is impeccable as she mixes and matches various designers to create the looks that her fans love.
The best part about the entrepreneur’s most recent wear is its affordability. Matching Chyna’s aquamarine style is mainly a matter of paying just over $30 for the My Naked Wardrobe dress and finding affordable thong sandals at your local boutique.
Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian are expecting their first child to arrive in coming months. The little one will be Chyna’s second child as she already has a son named King with ex-boyfriend Tyga.

Sasha and Malia’s six-day summer trip to Africa is off to a royal start. The Obama girls accompanied their mom, Michelle Obama, as she met with Moroccan Princess Lalla Selma in Marrakesh on Monday.
Mrs. Obama sat down with Princess Selma to talk about girls and education in regions where literacy among women is not celebrated. The first lady and her daughters have served as both inspirations and advocates for the Let Girls Learn initiative that provides funding to Third World countries for the specific purpose of educating women.
“I’m traveling with my mother and my two daughters,” Michelle said while on her six-day tour of Africa. “This is the special girl-power unit of the Obama household. We left the president behind because he’s a boy.” She also encouraged the girls in the group to “keep fighting and stay in school. I’m here to shine a big, bright light on you.”
President and First Lady Michelle Obama are the proud parents of a high school graduate, Malia, who will begin her first year at Harvard University next year. Sasha is also doing great things in the academic sphere as she will begin her Junior year in high school this fall.
If he had to choose between dogs and cats, Kevin Hart would undoubtedly cheer for the dogs in the universe.
“I’m a dog person,” he told media at the Secret Life of Pets New York Premiere this past weekend. “One hundred percent,” Hart added. “Cats are evil. They’re evil,” he joked.
On a serious note, though, Hart is more attached to dogs because of the affection that they give their owners. “I feel like dogs give more back,” Kevin explained. “Cats are good animals. I get why people like cats. They lay around all day. Give a cat some yarn, that cat is set for two months straight. I’m a dog person. When I come home, I like to know that my presence is felt. My dog gives me the immediate reaction and love that I feel like I deserve after a long day.”
Kevin’s days certainly have been long in preparation for the debut of his first animated role in Secret Life of Pets. “You want to be able to, hopefully, get something that’s got potential legs on it that can grow into so much more than just one [film],” he shared. “I feel like [Secret Life of Pets] can really turn into something special.”
The upcoming movie is sure to be one that kids enjoy as it centers around a terrier named Max (Louis C.K.) . The dog is living a privileged life in New York City when his space is suddenly invaded by his owner’s newest family addition, Duke (Eric Stonestreet). The large and unruly canine and Max are compelled to rely on each other after a rabbit named Snowball (Kevin Hart) saves them from getting hauled off by the pound and forces them to join his gang. The mission of the group is simple: get revenge on the humans who have done them wrong. Can Max and Duke hang?

Willow has been in several campaigns since deciding to try a hand in the fashion world. The teen’s most recent campaign, in addition to the Chanel shoot, was with Marc Jacobs. “Sitting in the chairs and just watching the clothes walk by is so amazing because you get to see the soul that’s inside of them,” she told media. “I feel like there is so much creativity going on that I want to inject some of my ideas and some of my energy into the brand, because I feel like there’s a lot of things that come from youth nowadays that need to be expressed and amplified to the world.”

Jamie Foxx brought his daughter, Annalise, onstage at this year’s BET Awards. The actor had his little one by his side as he introduced Laila Ali who had words about her late father, Muhammad Ali.
“Listen, 2016 has been a tough year. We lost a lot of heroes, a lot of great people,” Jamie said. “It’s amazing that these incredible people are gone, and we lost them all at the same time,” the actor added.
Foxx went on to tell fans that Muhammad Ali was “a person who [was] not only the greatest, not only a legend, but stood up at a time when no one was standing up. So it’s definitely more than just boxing, more than just entertainment, but a person who has shaped all of our lives.” The actor then introduced Laila Ali who paid tribute to her father with a wonderful speech.
“My father lived his life with conviction and purpose,” Laila said. “To me and my eight sisters and brothers he was just Dad. As his youngest daughter, I can tell you that he was also a loving, gentle and principled man. He believed in evolving in his beliefs and his ideas.”
Muhammad Ali passed away in a Phoenix hospital earlier this month after battling with Parkinson’s disease for more than thirty years. The boxing legend’s cause of death was due to respiratory problems.
“As my dad grew older he evolved in his mind, his heart and his spirit but one thing that never changed was his love and gratitude for all people,” Laila said during Sunday’s BET Awards. “We’re all honored and grateful for the love, kindness and appreciation that’s been shown to him in return. My father also once said, ‘If people love each other as much as they love me, it would be a better world.’ If he was here today he would humbly ask you to pray, not just for our family, but for all of mankind.”

It was just a few weeks ago that some critics tried to shame Chrissy Teigen for enjoying date night with her husband in the absence of their daughter. “I used to read mommy blogs like crazy so I knew mommy shaming was a thing but I didn’t think it would come from going to dinner,” the star mom told ABC News shortly after the incident. “We were gone for an hour. We had a good meal together,” she added.
Luna is Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s only child together. The little one was born on April 14, 2016.
Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, and little North enjoyed a day out at the theater this past Sunday. The family was spotted in Calabasas before and after watching what many presumed was Finding Dory on the main screen.
All three family members wore white, and Kim rocked her “Saint” choker in honor of her son who was not in attendance. The celebrity mom went for the casual look as she wore a loose buttoned down shirt and denim thigh-high boots. The shoes appeared to be originals as they also were loose-fitting and had several rips in the name of fashion.
Kim Kardashian has become the center of attention since making an appearance in her husband’s new music video for ‘Famous.’ The reality star is filmed while posing nude next to her husband who is also bare. There are several other celebrities, including Taylor Swift and Donald Trump, who are featured naked in the video.
“It’s not in support or anti any of [the people in the video],” Kanye said of his controversial music video. “It’s a comment on fame.”
Kim and Kanye West have two kids, North and Saint, together. North celebrated her third birthday earlier this month. Little Saint will ring in his first birthday in December.

The Peetes took time for a family photo at their charity event in Long Beach, California, this past Thursday. Holly, Rodney, and the kids were out in full force at the HollyRod Foundation’s ‘My Brother Charlie Goes to the Aquarium’ family fun day. The event was presented at the Aquarium of the Pacific by Toys’R’Us.
HollyRod’s family day was designed to be more than simply a summer play date for kids. The celebrity couple sought to raise awareness about autism through the event by having activities that catered to individuals living with the disability. The animal petting exhibit afforded guests the opportunity to get up-close and personal with friendly creatures. There were also a number of sensory experiences designed to excite both kids and parents.
Holly and Rodney Peete know how intimidating theme parks can be for individuals living with autism. The power couple, however, also understands the importance of interaction and the excitement that comes along with a day at the carnival which is why they went to great lengths to make this year’s family fun day a success. As the couple’s foundation explains on its website, “The event creates a network of families that stay connected long after the carnival ends and truly fosters an environment of inclusion and acceptance.”
Holly Robinson Peete and Rodney Peete have four kids together. The couple’s oldest son, RJ, is considered a champion of autism as he has lived with the disorder for more than a decade and managed to beat the odds. Since being diagnosed, RJ has learned to speak, found and maintained a job, and is presently pursuing a career in modeling. The young adult serves as an inspiration to other kids who are battling with autism.
