Vanessa Simmons and baby Ava were quite busy during Fashion Week for Spring 2015 in New York City. The reality star supported her little sister, Angela, who has a fashion line of her own, and hosted the first ‘Street Style Block Party’ presented by ESSENCE.
Ava and Vanessa did a little mother-daughter runway action at Angela’s ‘Back To The Basics’ fashion show. The new mom carried her daughter as she strutted down the strip while wearing one of Angela’s creations. At one point Vanessa stopped to strike a pose, and Ava also gazed at photographers while sucking on her pacifier. Vanessa made sure her daughter was dressed to impress with a beautiful white outfit and matching headband. Rev Run and other members of the Simmons family were also in attendance at Angela’s show.
In addition to supporting her sister, Vanessa served as host of the ‘Street Style Block Party.’ The event was the first of its kind presented by ESSENCE, and featured a special performance by Jasmine Sullivan along with remarks from Chirlane McCray. Tracee Ellis Ross was also a guest at the event and made a surprise appearance during the ‘Street Style Fashion Show’ segment.
Ava is Vanessa’s first child with boyfriend Mike Wayans. The little one was born on February 13, 2014.
Sony Pictures recently released the advertisement poster for the upcoming remake of Annie, and Quvenzhane Wallis is the center of attraction. The young star stands in the middle of Jamie Foxx, Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, and Cameron Diaz as she and her dog make a lasting impression.
The upcoming version of Annie features Quvenzhane as star and Cameron Diaz as her incredibly mean foster mother. Miss Hannigan (Diaz) forces Annie (Wallis) to clean the house from top to bottom, and attempts to smother any hopes that the youngster has of doing big things when she gets older. It isn’t until the wealthy Benjamin Stacks (Jamie Foxx) comes along that the main character realizes that there is great potential beyond her foster mom’s apartment in Harlem. Although many versions have debuted since the original musical hit the stage during the 20th century, this remake will surely melt your heart away.
Annie premieres on December 19, 2014. This will be Quvenzhane’s fourth major motion picture. The tween also starred in 12 Years A Slave and Beasts of the Southern Wild.
Torrei Hart is confident with her two heartbeats by her side. The ‘Atlanta Exes’ star recently shared a photo of Heaven and Hendrix that was simply beautiful. “My heartbeats,” captioned Torrei underneath the picture of her, Heaven, and Hendrix smiling widely. The star and her daughter held up the peace sign while Hendrix gave the camera lots of cheese.
It has been a few years since Torrei and comedian Kevin Hart divorced and the two appear to be moving on with their lives. Torrei tells media that her new boyfriend has formed a bond with the kids that is both beautiful and hilarious. “My kids love him,” says the reality star of her boyfriend of one year. “He’s a great guy … He’s pretty much around my kids almost every day. When I’m with the kids, he’s with the kids. We recently took a very fun camping trip – he made me step outside of my comfort zone. He has me trying new things, which I like.”
Kevin is also moving on with activities of his own. The comedian hosted his Kevin Hart & Friends Comedy All-Stars show in Las Vegas this past Friday. The sold-out performance was a part of Kevin’s second annual ‘HartBeat Weekend,’ that welcomed Solange Knowles and other celebrities to the festivities.
Even with numerous tasks that lead them in opposite directions, Torrei and Kevin still manage to co-parent Heaven and Hendrix well. The comedian often brags on his kids, and Torrei shares pictures of her little ones before and after school. Check out a few of those photos below!
Alicia Keys is writing with more passion than ever. The recording artist recently shared her new song ‘We Are Here’ with Facebook fans, and left a message that explained how the song came about.
“The day I wrote this song, I was sitting in a circle of people of all ages and we were asked, ‘Why are you here,'” wrote the star. “This really hit me on a deep level. I realized no one had ever asked me that question before. As I prepare to give birth to a new child, I can’t help and think about the world I’m bringing my baby into. No matter where we come from, when we see the state of the world today, we can all feel the growing frustration and desire to make a difference. And we all have a voice – we just need to know how to make it heard.”
Alicia is certainly making her voice heard in her new song. The singer talks about various social problems, including guns and violence in America, and then tells listeners that “we are here for all of us.” Through her lyrics, Keys makes it clear that she wants her kids to grow up in a world where love, not hate, comes in abundance. The R&B singer is expecting her second child with husband Swizz Beatz to arrive in December.

Zoe Saldana is expecting twins! Brittany Spears let the good news slip during a conversation with ET on Tuesday.
The singer was asked about possibly partnering with Saldana to create another movie when she replied, “Who knows? That’s a very good idea. But she’s pregnant with twins right now. So I’m sure she’s got a huge future ahead of her.”
Zoe had confirmed her and husband Marc Perego’s expectancy but she refrained from revealing that she was having twins. The Guardians of the Galaxy star wed her husband last year, and shared the good news of her expectancy earlier this year. Many speculated that Zoe was pregnant but it wasn’t until the star responded to the ALS ice bucket challenge, where she told fans she couldn’t “do it” while turning to the side to show off her bump, that everyone was certain.
The actress’ two bundles of joy are expected to arrive next year.
Kasseem Dean Jr. is making strides in the fashion industry. The son of Mashonda Tifrere and Swizz Beatz walked the runway for Laurel DeWitt at The Highline Hotel in New York City on Sunday, September 7, 2014. Mashonda couldn’t help but gush about her son after the show.
The celeb mom proudly tweeted, “Gold metal everywhere!!! What a successful night for my partner/sister friend @laureldewitt. @Kasseemsdream , you did such a great job.” Mashonda was also taken aback by Kasseem’s friends who came out to support the youngster in his efforts. “I had a major mommy moment,” wrote the star. “My highlight of tonight @kasseemsdream classmates came to support him. Melts my heart.”
This wasn’t the first time Kasseem modeled for Laurel DeWitt. The little one rocked a large crown with matching gold vest during his first fashion show hosted by the designer earlier this year. DeWitt launched her jewelry collection in 2010 to express her love for couture jewelry pieces. The designer has since grown her line to include dresses, ornate crowns, and gowns.
Little Kasseem has launched his own creative vision under Laura’s tutelage. ‘Kasseem’s Dream’ is a website that showcases Kasseem’s favorite things. Visitors can see everything from snacks that Kasseem loves to art that he absolutely adores on his site.
Mashonda has one child with ex-husband Swizz Beatz. Check out more pictures of little Kasseem below!
You can just call Flo Rida daddy. The rapper was recently proven to be the father of model Natasha Williams son.
“A hot model named Natasha Georgette Williams sued Flo last year for child support…Flo admitted they had been banging all over the country — but he was convinced she was sleeping with multiple partners. He also allegedly offered to pay for an abortion…According to legal docs obtained by TMZ … Williams finally had the DNA test done and it shows a 99.99999999% chance Flo fathered the child.”
Rida is expected to pay child support for his and Natasha’s son even though a judge has not yet officially titled him the father of the youngster. Natasha’s lawyer, Ray Rafool, told media that the model was not shocked at the outcome of the paternity test results but nevertheless pleased. “Though not a surprise to Ms. Williams, we are certainly pleased that the Court ordered paternity test firmly establishes Flo Rida is the father of their son,” said Rafool.
Flo Rida’s newest album, The Perfect 10, is expected to be released later this year.

Laura Govan and her kids attended the second annual Athletes vs. Cancer Celebrity Flag Football Game in Granada Hills on Saturday. The event was held at Granada Hills high school and welcomed many celebrities who wanted to spread awareness and find a cure for cancer. Laura and the kids were privileged to take a picture with Snoop Dogg who served as host of the event.
Matt Barnes, Laura’s brother-in-law, founded the Athletes vs. Cancer non-profit organization in 2008, after his mother passed away suddenly as the result of having cancer. Ann Barnes was diagnosed with four types of cancer in the latter part of 2007, and died twenty-six days after receiving her prognosis from the doctor. While the Barnes family knew that Ann’s cancerous diagnosis could lead to death neither they nor the doctor were expecting her to pass away so quickly. As a result of the devastation that Matt and his family experienced as the result of Ann’s sudden death, the NBA star, along with his wife and sister, decided to found the Athletes vs. Cancer charity. The organization hosts awareness events every year that encourage the general public to be proactive in their fight against cancer.
Laura Govan and her little ones joined forces with Matt and his charity this past Saturday to further prompt the community to get tested often. The reality star has four kids with fiance Gilbert Arenas. Learn more about the Athletes vs. Cancer non-profit organization here.
Faith Evans and the family stopped by the second annual Athletes vs. Cancer Celebrity Flag Football Game in Granada Hills, California, this past Saturday. The star and her children were among many celebrities who came out to raise awareness and funds for a disease that affects millions every year. Christopher Wallace Jr., along with his younger brothers, happily accompanied mom to the charity vent.
Los Angeles ‘Clippers’ player Chris Paul certainly gave a good showing on the field as his team competed with tenacity. Although his sport of choice is basketball, Chris put up a good fight and showed good sportsmanship during the charity football game. Blake Griffin and Glen Davis served as guards for Paul, who was his team’s quarterback. Nick Young and Ryan Hollins were also in attendance but watched from the sidelines as the two teams battled it out on the field.
Faith Evans has three sons and one daughter. Christopher is her oldest son. His father is the late Biggie Smalls.

Zoe Saldana is enjoying pregnancy and satisfying her cravings. The star was spotted outside of an In-N-Out Burger wit her dog on September 5th.
Pregnancy certainly looks good on the Guardians of the Galaxy star who was, at first, reluctant to share the great news of her and husband Marc Perego’s expectancy. Although she still remains fairly quiet about her family’s growth, Zoe has no problem with discussing her husband who she sporadically wed last year.
“I’ve known my partner for five years,” says the star. “I knew of his work. I knew of him. Then we met. And months later, we both made the decision to do what we both individually vowed never to do — to get married. As soon as we decided we were going to get married, we didn’t wait. We did it three weeks later. That part was very, very quick.”
Zoe and Marc are both expecting their first child.
Beyonce is the doting mom. The Pop sensation was recently photographed while on vacation with her daughter and husband. Bey took several pictures of Blue while touring Portofino, Italy by way of yacht. Blue was the active toddler who moved about as mom took pictures. Beyonce couldn’t help but smile while looking at her daughter who seems to be growing by leaps and bounds every time we see her.
Blue was stole the spotlight at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards. The little one wore a beautiful dress that immediately sold out after the show, and said, “Yeah mommy,” in the microphone just before Jay-Z presented his wife with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. Thousands of social media fans got a kick out of Blue dancing in the audience as her mom delivered a powerful performance onstage.
Miss Carter will celebrate her third birthday in January. Blue is Jay-Z and Beyonce’s only child.
It is that time of year again. Fashion Week for Spring styles has arrived in New York City, and June Ambrose along with her daughter Summer are all eyes.

Kanye West has never been happier. The rapper recently gushed about his daughter and wife to a crowd of thousands at a concert in Adelaide on Sunday night. Kanye was bringing his segment to a close when he began talking about North and Kim and how they changed him for the better.
“You know, I have no complaints,” said the star. “I feel so happy, just to hold my daughter in my arms and see the greatest creation that I needed God and my wife to help me with. And everything I did up until this point is really just to have a family and at that point I understood what life is about. What’s the meaning of life? Life itself. To see a life. To watch it grow right in front of you.”
Kim and Kanye have certainly been watching with joy as North grows up in the public’s eye. The ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ star recently discussed the process of naming her child that was influenced by media and fellow celebrities. “It was a rumor in the press and we’d never really considered [the name North] seriously at all,” explained Kim. “But Kanye and I were having lunch … and Pharrell came over to us and said, ‘Oh my god, are you guys really going to call your daughter North? That is the best name.’ Then a little while later Anna Wintour came over and asked the same thing. She told us, ‘North is a genius name.’ Kanye and I looked at one another and just laughed. I guess at that point it sort of stuck.”
North is Kim and Kanye’s first child together. The couple wed earlier this year.
