Tom and Giovanna Fletcher Opt For Hypnobirthing Again For Second Birth


Tom-Giovanna--zWith only a matter of weeks until their second child arrives at the end of February, husband and wife Tom and Giovanna Fletcher say they are aiming to try hypnobirthing again after having such success with it the first time around when they welcomed son Buzz Michaelangelo in March 2014.

During a homemade video on Friday, January 29th,  – which is also the mum-to-be’s birthday, Giovanna explained:

 You are more in control and aware of what’s happening than you weren’t to do it and try to do it naturally. Hypnobirthing is all about realising what your body is trying to do and how to get the best out of your birthing experience basically.

Larry Birkhead Says He Tries To Be As Honest As Possible With Daughter Dannielynn When It Comes To Her Mum Anna Nicole Smith


jpIt’s been 8 years since the death of Anna Nicole Smith and her former boyfriend Larry Birkhead has been raising their daughter Dannielynn Hope, 9, single-handedly since. Like any other 9-year old their little girl enjoys playing computer games such as Minecraft and often searching for things she likes on Google. With that in mind, dad Larry says he tries to be as honest as possible with her when it comes to stories about her mum.

“I tell Dannielynn stories about her mom. I don’t sugar coat it. I say there are some things that your mom did and you know I try to make her learn from it. She’ll see things, when she grows up, that not necessarily are true. Was [Anna Nicole] wild? Yeah, sure. But [she was] a great lady and a great mom.”

Aside from the fact that her mum was famous and in the public eye, the 42-year old says his daughter has quite a normal upbringing and makes him proud daily — even achieving straight A’s at school.

“I think [about] how far she’s come, and all the craziness that swirled around her and that she was just, really none the wiser. ‘]Just a little kid doing her thing like she’s supposed to be. That’s the one thing that I’m most proud of that I’ve done, trying to keep everything as normal as I can, in just a really crazy, crazy situation.

I look at her and she’s my everything. When I see how big she’s become, I’m just so proud of her.”

As she’s gotten older Larry has also noticed her resemblance to her mum.

“She reminds me so much of her mom and as she gets older, and her features are changing, it’s just like having a little miniature Anna Nicole running around in so many ways.”

Ritchie Neville And Natasha Hamilton Discuss Telling The Children About Their Engagement


NHWhen singer Ritchie Neville planned to ask fiancée Natasha Hamilton to marry him on a recent trip to Rome, not only did he ask her dad for permission but he also bypassed it with her 13-year-old son Josh.

“I told Josh, he was pretty excited. We were sat on the sofa and it was just me and him a couple of weeks before and I said: “If I tell you something, can you keep a secret? He was like: ‘Of course I can, mate. I told him and he said: “Yeah that’s cool.’ It was a typical teenage response.”

Aside from Josh and their daughter Ella Rose, 13 months, both he and Natasha had to let Natasha’s two other sons Harry, 10, and Alfie Riad, 5, in on the exciting news.

Natasha: We told them the day we got home and they were made up. Alfie kept saying: ‘Can I try your ring on, Mummy? It’s very pretty.

Ritchie: Harry’s face was a picture. He gasped and had the biggest smile! I won’t ever forget that moment.

N: I’m their mum, so if they see me happy, they’re happy. We have been through a lot as a family so it’s just about showing them how much you love and care for them. They absolutely adore Ritch. Alfie actually said to me: ‘How many times do you get married, Mummy?’ And I said: ‘Well your supposed to do it once, but sometimes it doesn’t work out like that, but Mummy and Ritch are going to get married and that’s it, we’re stuck with each other forever.

And although the marriage will make Ritchie officially the boys’ stepdad and make things more solidified, it is a role he already sees himself in.

“I already feel like I am, but I do think it solidifies it in some way. I think kids understand marriage so it makes it very much permanent, not that it isn’t anyway. The whole point of a wedding is to give all of yourself and say until I leave this earth, I will be with you.”

AWAfter returning from filming for Life on Marbs in Marabella, Alex Weaver was stunned to learn she was pregnant. The star, who didn’t realise she was already 17, weeks along revealed she only took a pregnancy test because of a strange craving for unwashed carrots.

“I [found out] when I was about 17 weeks pregnant. I’d just come home from Marbella. We finished filming at the end of July but I didn’t realise until September. I started having a craving for dirty carrots out of the bag. It was only when I was speaking to someone and they said: “When my friend was pregnant, she was craving dirty carrots – it’s the iron in the soil.”

The 19-year-old, who has recently taken a paternity test to prove that her unborn baby boy is ex-boyfriend Charles Martin‘s after cheating on him with The Only Way Is Essex‘s Dan Edgar, says she had no doubt that her former flame is the father.

HIBack in July Harry Judd and wife Izzy announced they were expecting their first child together. And now with only a few more months to go until the impending arrival, the McBusted star has revealed he can’t wait to become a dad. Speaking to the Daily Mail, he said:

“The hardship was before the IVF when nothing was happening, but using the treatment was a really positive achievement for us. We didn’t consider IVF for a couple of years, but it got to the point when we had exhausted everything else.”

Jennifer Garner Reveals Being A Hollywood Mum Can Sometimes Have Its Pitfalls


JG1Jennifer Garner has revealed that being a Hollywood mum can sometimes have its pitfalls — especially when trying to teach her children that every person is just as equal and as important as each other — regardless of social status. Speaking to Yahoo Parenting, she said:

“The hardest part is other kids talking to my children when we aren’t around. Like, ‘It’s so cool your dad’s being Batman’ and trying to control how much that inflates the idea that one person is more important than another. [My husband I] really work to manage that idea — that just because people react a certain way to us, it doesn’t mean we’re more important than anyone else. And [the kids] are pretty quick to cut us back down to size.”

The actress shares her three children — Violet Anne, 9, Seraphina Rose Elizabeth, 6, and Samuel Garner, 3 — with husband Ben Affleck and says starting a family is like getting to know each other all over again.

“You just go on a ride together because you don’t know who you’re going to be when you first have a baby and you don’t know who [your partner] is going to be. You have to just hang in there while you figure it out — and have a lot of patience for each other.”

She’s just started a craft line called We Made It with Joann-Fabric and Craft Stores and says it’s an activity she often likes to get involved in with the children.

“I don’t like my kids to start the day with TV, so we [play with the kits] on Saturday mornings.”

Autumn Phillips Talks Life With Savannah and Isla


APWith the nation still celebrating the birth of Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, 17 days, Autumn Phillips — wife of Peter Phillips and mum of Savannah Anne Kathleen, 4, and Isla Elizabeth, 3 — gave an insight of what it’s like having two children so close in age and, from her own experience, what it was like welcoming siblings in to the family.

When Isla was born, Savannah had just turned 15 months. I don’t think she really noticed at first there was another baby. She just wanted to run around and tear the place apart.

It’s when they get older it gets tricky. They learn to share by fighting each other off. I have an older brother, a twin brother and a half-brother and sister so I know what it’s like. But siblings are a gift.

Along with Savannah, Isla and Princess Charlotte, Queen Elizabeth II also has two other great-grandchildren — Mia Grace, 16 months, and Prince George Alexander Louis, 21 months. With 4 out of 5 of them being girls — Prince George is outnumbered for the time being. Says Autumn:

There are a lot of girls in the family now. Poor little George — he’s going to be surrounded by bossy little ladies. But when they all get together again, it’ll be a blast.

Kate Silverton Talks About The Emotional and Psychological Effect Welcoming Son Wilbur In To The Family Had On Daughter Clemency


KSWelcoming a new baby in to the family is always a joyous occasion and while welcoming son Wilbur, 10 months, was a joyous event for presenter Kate Silverton and her husband Mike Heron — it didn’t prepare her for the effect it would have on her relationship with her now 3-year-old daughter Clemency Florence Rose.

“I couldn’t have been prepared for the amount of love I felt for my little boy, having been so overwhelmingly in love with my daughter.

“I wasn’t prepared to feel so protective of him – sometimes even at the expense of my daughter’s feelings. Neither was I prepared for the guilt I would feel at spending my time trying to be the same sort of mother to Wilbur as I was to Clemency.

For Clemency — having to share her parents with a younger sibling was a hard adjustment and often resulted in several temper tantrums.  

She had more tantrums than ever before – when they can’t express their feelings verbally, a child will typically resort to physical expression: screaming, crying or, in some cases, hitting. My patience was stretched at times and I found myself saying “no” to her more often than I should.

Claudia Winkleman Opens Up About Daughter Matilda’s Horrific Accident



Claudia Winkleman has spoken for the first time about the terrible accident that happened to daughter Matilda Martha on Halloween 2014. The 8-year-old was out trick or treating with her mum and several friends when the outfit she was wearing went up in flames — causing severe burns on her leg.

 “It was like those horrific birthday candles that you blow out and they come back. It was really fast, it was fast, it wasn’t fire like I’d seen.”

The incident occurred after the outfit Matilda was wearing — a witch outfit with a hat, cape, skirt and tights — brushed past an open flame and was instantly set alight. It was only thanks to the quick actions of Claudia’s neighbour  Jamie Poulton whopicked her up and lifted her over the children, got her on the pavement and tried to put her out,” that her injuries weren’t more severe and stopped the fire spreading towards her friends. He also suffered second-degree burns to his hand.

“I was talking to somebody and then I heard her shout and she was on fire. It feels like she was on fire for hours, but the surgeon said it was probably just seconds. She went up is the only way I know how to describe it – it was a spark and she screamed out for me.”

Alyssa Milano Juggles Motherhood and Work But Has Learnt To Deal With The Guilt


Being a working mum can sometimes be a juggling act for actress Alyssa Milano, who is mum to children Milo Thomas, 3, and Elizabella Dylan, 8 months, with husband David Bugliari Speaking to Yahoo! Parenting, she said:

“It’s hard to juggle everything. Every day is a process and a balancing act, but I try to take every day as it comes. My schedule is sporadic, which is good because it allows me some real quality time with my kids. When I have business to attend to, I’m always aware that I need to get home as soon as possible or I feel guilty.

Although she does feel guilty because of her sometimes heavy workload, the 42-year old says she has come to terms with the feeling and where it comes from — thanks to therapy.

I have learned, through a lot of therapy, that a lot of guilt is pre-wired in a woman’s being. I think if you go back to the caveman days, we are wired to not want to be away from our young because they didn’t have caretakers then. They didn’t have nannies. We needed to keep our offspring safe, and I don’t think we’ve evolved out of that. We still have the biological urge to be with our kids, and to know that the guilt is coming from someplace biological, it helps. You realize, ‘oh, this instinct makes total sense.’ I think the same goes for dads. I hear friends complain that their husbands work even more now than before they had kids, and it’s because they’re hard-wired to want to provide.”
