Limos and Go Karts were all in preparation for Kasseem Dean Jr.’s birthday. Mashonda and Swizz Beatz celebrated their son’s impending birthday this past weekend at Pole Position Raceway in New York.
Kasseem had a number of celebrity friends by his side as he took a ride around the various tracks at the venue. Prince Joso, son of Fabolous and Emily B, was one of several star kids to stop by the bash. Egypt and Prince, Kasseem’s brothers, were also in attendance.
Little Kasseem took to Instagram to talk about his impending ninth birthday. “It’s almost my bday,” exclaimed the youngster. He also shared pictures from his limo and Go Kart parties.
Although his parents are no longer a couple, they work together to ensure that Kasseem has a strong family base. “Co-parenting is not about your feelings, or those of your ex-spouse, but rather about your child’s happiness, stability, and future well-being,” Mashonda wrote in one open letter. The singer was giving advice to other single parents.
“Let what’s best for your kids—you working cooperatively with the other parent—motivate your actions,” she advised. “Friends, therapists, or even a loving pet can all make good listeners when you need to get negative feelings off your chest. Exercise can also be a healthy outlet for letting off steam.”
Kasseem Dean Jr. is Mashonda’s only child with Swizz Beatz. He will celebrate his ninth birthday on December 22, 2015.

Kym Whitley and her son Joshua were two of many celebrities to attend the Los Angeles premiere of Disney’s ‘Frozen On Ice’ show at the Staples Center on Thursday. The star mom and her little one were dressed for the occasion with Kym wearing black winter wear with matching hat, and Joshua rocking a gray vest with jeans.
The newest season of the mother and son’s reality series, ‘Raising Whitley,’ is already underway and promises to be one of the most memorable showings yet. Kym decides to tell her 5-year-old son that he is adopted and battles with the possibility of him having resentment towards her.
While many adoptive parents wait until their children are much older to share such news with them, Whitley tells media that she decided to inform Joshua about his birth mother earlier in life so as to minimize confusion in later years. “You know, you start the conversation now at least introduce them to the word so it won’t be so shocking as they get older,” says the star. “[I say] ‘Adopted!’ or ‘you’re adopted!’ Or you know, ‘Adoption…You think we should adopt another kid?'”
Joshua is Kym’s only son. The star adopted him at birth five years ago after his birth mother named Whitley as a preferred guardian. See Kym and Joshua’s ‘Frozen’ showing below!
Life is filled with surprises when you are a fan of Willow Smith. The young star recently released her debut album to the awe and wonder of many.
The 15-year-old named the record Ardipithecus, which is scientific in nature. “Ardipithecus Ramidus is the scientific name of the first hominid bones found on earth,” Willow in a statement. “I wanted to name my musical compilation after it because, while I was making these songs I was in such a transitional state. Digging deep in the soil of my heart and finding bits and pieces of my ancient self that tell stories, which end up being the lyrics to the songs. Ardipithecus is my first album in my entire career and it makes me feel so blessed to be able to share my evolution with the LightEaters as I continue excavating my inner worlds.”
Check out one of fifteen songs featured on Willow’s album below!

Just months after giving birth to baby Wolfe, a number of international tabloids have already tagged Kimora as expecting again. According to Pulse Nigeria,

The event was held on Thursday and hosted by R&B singer Rihanna for the Clara Lionel Foundation.

The Dream Girls star was one of many to portray a character in the Broadway debut of Alice Walker’s hit novel. Many critics praised Hudson for her ability to perform so well in what is her first stage play.
“The pace of it is so quick,” the star told media. “The first night of previews, by the end of the first act I was just like, ‘Whoa, y’all, I think I’m in shock.’ I felt like I just hopped in some oncoming traffic.”
‘The Color Purple’ is showing in New York City through March 2016. Buy tickets here. Jennifer Hudson has one child with fiance David Otunga Sr.
Baby Tucker will be arriving soon and Kandi Burruss is getting ready for the big day. The star tells media that she and husband Todd Tucker have gone the extra mile in preparation for their son’s arrival.
“Todd and I, we took like a quick, little class of getting prepared for baby,” says Kandi. “I haven’t seen a baby in 13 years. I’m just kidding! I’ve seen one, but I haven’t really had to keep a baby in so long, so I needed a refresher course.”
One of many good things about Kandi’s expectancy is that she has a lot of help. “Riley is like, ‘Oh I can’t wait to see the baby. I’ll help babysit, but I’m not changing diapers,'” Kandi says of her daughter. “She’s the one that I’m like, ‘OK, we’re gonna have to work on you,'” adds the star. “My mother is excited. She’s actually working on her own baby room in her house. And she told me, ‘Granny needs a nanny.’ I’m like, Granny just don’t know she might be the nanny.”
Kandi and Todd Tucker are expecting their first child to arrive early next year. The couple also has daughters, Riley is Kandi’s daughter and Kaela is Todd’s child, from previous relations.
