Cooking in the kitchen with Riley and Ryan is one of the greatest pleasures of celebrity mom Ayesha Curry. The author, and soon-to-be television personality, tells media that she gets joy out of helping her daughters develop their palettes.

“The way that I get [Riley] to try stuff is by [her] making it with me because then she’s seeing what’s going into [it] … and she’s feeling like she’s accomplished something.”

Riley has become somewhat of a star in her own right since putting on a show during her father’s press conference last year. “It’s a little bit intimidating I think as a mom, a little bit scary `cause the intentions weren’t there for that to happen,” Ayesha admits. “But we’ve kind of taken it on and taken it for what it is because if you have a gift to make people happy the way that she’s made people happy, I mean that’s OK. She puts a smile on people’s faces so we’re all right with it.”

Ayesha has also been under the watchful eye of the public, though not always for positive reasons. Some fans criticized her for an angry Twitter rant that she shared after the Golden State Warriors lost a game during the NBA Championship series. Ayesha later apologized for her comments but some still took her wholesome image as uppity and, hence, created memes that exhibited Mrs. Curry as the “holier-than-thou” type.

“I think it’s silly,” Ayesha says of the bad press. “It’s so funny how your personality and character can be shaped by other people and not yourself, and I would just like to say nobody’s perfect. I’m completely normal,” she adds.

Hopefully, the basketball wife’s upcoming cooking show on the Food Network, Ayesha’s Homemade, will shed more positive light on Mrs. Curry. “I tend to be supergoofy and that will come off on the show,” the celebrity mom reveals. “I’m just excited for people to see that I don’t take things so seriously — life’s too short, so we’ve got to have fun and make things easy.”

Ayesha’s Homemade, filmed at her home in Alamo, California, will premiere on October 22, 2016. Ayesha and Stephen Curry have two kids together.

obama

What would be President Obama’s response if Sasha or Malia approached him about a career in the armed forces? “Go for it!” The commander-in-chief recently told attendees at a town hall meeting in Virginia that he would support his daughters if they decided to join the military.

“If Malia and Sasha decided that that was an avenue that they wanted to take, I would be proud of them,” the president shared. “I’d be lying if I said I wouldn’t sometimes get nervous about possible deployments,” Obama admitted. “Your kids are your kids. And you want to keep them tucked in, in their pajamas for the rest of their lives, if you had a chance. But I’d be proud to have them serve, and I think every parent who’s seen their children enter the military are proud.”

The president went on to tell attendees that he signed up for Selective Service at the age of 18 just as the action of Vietnam was passing. “There weren’t any active wars. We hadn’t been under attack. And so I took a different course, and I didn’t end up serving in our military,” he explained.

While the verdict is still out on Sasha, it doesn’t appear that Malia will be serving in the armed forces either. The 18-year-old is making plans to begin her freshman year at Harvard University next year. President and First Lady Obama will say goodbye to the White House on January 20, 2017.

Sebastian brings joy to both of his parents. It was just a few weeks ago that the toddler’s mom, Amber Rose, gushed about her son’s excellent articulation abilities. “I read to Sebastian every single day when he was in my arms, and now he can articulate a sentence like no other, and he’s 3 years old,”

“I read to Sebastian every single day when he was in my arms, and now he can articulate a sentence like no other, and he’s 3 years old,” Rose shared. “He knows every big word,” she added. “Every time your baby says something like, ‘Oh, this is relaxing,’ you be like a thesaurus and you give [them] a different way to say it every single time so they learn.”

Little Sebastian is Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa’s only child together. The youngster celebrated his third birthday in February.

Nate Parker and his daughter were two of many in attendance at the screening of his upcoming film, Birth of A Nation, earlier this week. The actor took several pictures on the red carpet with his daughter who was all smiles while standing beside her dad.

Birth of A Nation tells the story of Nat Turner. The literate slave, who was also a preacher in antebellum South, orchestrated an uprising on August 21, 1831, that changed United States history. Turner’s uprising was one of only a few times that nearly seventy white men, women, and children were killed by their African servants in one setting. Nat Turner died on November 11, 1831, in Courtland, Virginia.

In many ways, Nate Parker shares the spirit of his onscreen character. Although the actor has never spearheaded an uprising, he has served as the leader of his family for many years. “My father passed away when I was very young, so I was head of household for a very long time,” Turner shared with PEOPLE. “Whether it came to cooking food or having to braid hair to get kids out of the door for school, I’ve been one that has — with the help of my mother — been a father figure for a lot of young ladies.”

Nate Parker has four kids with his wife, Sarah DiSanto, and five kids in all. Birth of A Nation makes its public debut on October 7, 2016.

combs
Sean “Diddy” Combs and his family were in attendance at Monday night’s Boys & Girls Harbor Salute To Achievement ceremony. The event was held at the David H. Koch Theater in New York City where Diddy gave a strong political message.

The Hip Hop mogul was given the Tony Duke Award for his success in establishing a charter school, Capital Prep. The school recently partnered with Boys & Girls Harbor to further advance the academic opportunities available to inner city youth.

Combs did not overlook the educational disparities in America during his speech. “As we wait for the government to call a state of emergency on the unfairness of the education system, and how it’s going to be fixed, we have to do it ourselves,” he shared. “We have to lead by example,” Combs added. “We have to show the success rate, and we have to instill the importance of education in our communities, and how hard you have to work to really be a leader.”

The celebrity dad even went so far as to encourage attendees to hold their vote this November. “We need to make sure that we’re not standing here 8 years from now when nothing has drastically changed to deal with these issues,” Diddy explained. “We give aid to other countries, but we need aid right here in Harlem, and we need it now.”

Justin and Christian Combs accompanied their father to the Salute To Achievement ceremony. Jance Combs, Diddy’s mother, was also in attendance at the event. Sean Combs is the proud father of six kids.

Jay-Z, Gucci Mane, and Young Thug were three out of many A-list recording artists that Laiyah spent time with on Monday. The little one appeared a bit star struck as the celebrities gave her warm greetings and love.

Little Iman took full advantage of the trip by smiling and posing for several pictures. “A Bugs Life,” one caption read. Iman also uploaded a photo of his wife, Teyana Taylor, looking at her daughter with adoration. “Most times I would gush about how my daughter’s happiness means the world to me…but this picture is more about the look on my wife’s face as she stares at our daughter in awe. Everything changed when she arrived,” Shumpert exclaimed.

Teyana would agree as she recently told media that becoming a parent has changed her life. “It’s everything that I could ask for and more,” the singer shared. “She’s made me such a better woman.

Angel Parker and her daughter, Naomi Nenninger, stopped by the 5th Annual Red Carpet Safety Awareness Event at Sony Picture Studios on Saturday. The celebrity mom took a few pictures with her daughter while standing beside a booster seat on the red carpet. Angel and Naomi were all smiles while promoting safety awareness.

Step2 & Favored have been working to spread awareness about children’s safety when traveling for several years. Statistics show that four out of five car seats are not installed properly and useless in the instance of a car accident. Poor installation has everything to do with parents being misinformed, which is why Step2 & Favored gives presentations on the best way to keep kids safe on the road.

Angel Parker is best known for her role as Tasha Davenport on Disney’s Lab Rats. The actress has also guest starred on Days of our Lives and Criminal Minds. Angel Parker and her husband, Eric Nenninger, have two kids, Naomi and Joseph, together.
