Atomic Kitten‘s Natasha Hamilton is no stranger to having a heavy workload and a busy schedule but the star says being a mum of 4 can sometimes be like a “military operation” if boyfriend Ritchie Neville is unable to be on hand to help out with their baby daughter Ella Rose, 7 months and her three sons Josh, 12, Harry, 10, and Alfie Riad, 4. Speaking to OK! magazine UK said:
“If we’re both home, Ritchie drives Josh to the next village along from ours where he catches his bus to school, while I stay at home and get the others ready. Then I usually take Harry and Alfie to school while he looks after Ella. My life is a constant juggling act, depending on who has to be where and when.
I don’t know what I’d do without [Ritchie]. If he’s away for work then Josh always ends up being late for school, because managing all four of them in the morning on my own is a military operation!”
With Natasha soon to embarking on a tour with her Atomic Kitten bandmates it’ll mean that Ritchie will be left to hold the fort at home.
“Every time I go away I get a call from Ritchie telling me all the things that are going wrong. Usually one of the kids is crying because they miss me, or the boys are arguing over a computer game. He’s brave but I think it’ll be a good bonding experience for them.”

Kim Kardashian appeared on The Today Show on Monday, April 27th 2015 and opened up to host Matt Lauer about her struggle to conceive a second child with husband Kanye West. The 34-year old said: “I still have hope” that daughter North, 22 months would have an older sibling but doctors have advised her to possibly start looking in to other options.
“They say if you’ve been trying for a year, then you usually need a little bit of help.
I had a tough delivery, so I understand what my challenges are. I mean, I’m seeing the best doctors and I’m trying to do everything that I can to make that happen.
We’re trying to figure out what’s going on,’ she said. ‘They have recommended to me to get a surrogate.”
But despite the advice from professionals, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star says she at the moment she still wants to keep trying naturally.
“I would like to hold out a little bit longer, and still try. I still have hope, so I’m just going to keep on trying. Never say never. I mean, we haven’t talked about adopting.”
And although the desire for a second child is strong she still counts herself very lucky to already be a mum of one.
“I think you get kind of over it to the point where, I’m so blessed that I have one, and I don’t want to take my focus off of her so much.”

Jessica Michibata Button is plenty used to being asked about starting a family with her Forumla one beau Jenson – even more so now since they married in December 2014. However, the model recently told Hello! UK that while it is definitely something they both want in the future – they’re not quite ready yet.
“I definitely want to be a Mum. If I can be half the mother my mum was to me, I’d be very happy.
But at the moment I’m still working and travelling with Jenson and it’s great, but it’s not the best lifestyle for children, so we’ll wait a while. I don’t feel under pressure to have children right away.”
While Jessica may not be ready for babies herself, there is one impeding arrival she is looking forward to – the birth of Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s second child.
“She seems such a lovely woman and baby George is so cute. I can’t wait for her next baby. Britain is so lucky to have a royal family.”

TV presenter Tess Daly recently spoke to Hello! UK about home life with her fellow TV presenter husband Vernon Kay and their two daughters Phoebe Elizabeth, 10, and Amber Isabella, 6 next month. Despite the pair of them being busy with their day jobs they love the family life and believe the key is communication. She said:
“When I was growing up we all sat around the dinner table every night and discussed the day. That is the key to family life. I don’t want my children in different rooms looking at screens all day. I want to be together as a unit. Vernon and I both had that at home and want to repeat that with our own family, even though it’s a very different life for our kids. It’s definitely a different generation, but as long as they’re happy, that’s all that matters.”

Victoria Beckham appeared on Ellen DeGeneres on Thursday, April 23rd 2015. Whilst sitting down for a chat the fashion designer explained that while 3 year old Harper Seven does enjoy wearing dresses she is also quite the tomboy.
“She’s a little tomboy. She loves to wear little dresses, but then she loves to put her football boots on and get in the garden with her brothers and have a bit of rough and tumble, which I think is great.”
The 41 year old, who is also mum to Brooklyn Joseph, 16, Romeo James, 12, and Cruz David, 10, with husband David Beckham, said:
“And the boys are great with her. All the kids are amazing. I mean, they’re really good kids… they work hard at school. They’re happy, they’re funny.”
Despite having such famous parents, the former Spice Girl says 16 year old Brooklyn still works for his money.
“He’s worked in the local cafe washing up dishes for the past two years, which I think is great. You know, for me and David, we work a lot, but the kids are everything to us.And we’re very, very present. And I think it’s important that the kids have a good work ethic and try to help other people as well.”

“I’ve worked hard on every piece of the range; the designs, colours, fabrics, prints and cuts and I’m so proud of the outcome.
“As a child I modelled for Argos and featured in the catalouge several times so it’s great to make a return appearence, this time with my own range. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do.”

Jennifer Garner recently attended a screening of her up and coming film Butter wearing a short dress by Larvin after being styled by celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe, who insists that the pregnant actress stays away from maternity clothes. The 39-year-old told instyle.com
“Rachel Zoe is so determined to not put me in maternity clothes. I think because she was so little when she was pregnant, she didn’t wear them.”
Although Zoe has got her way so far – it’s a trend Jennifer can’t see continuing.
I’ve four months to go. Sooner or later, she is going to have to put me in a maternity dress. Eventually that is going to happen, but so far she has gotten her way.”
Baby on the way will be the actress’ third child with husband Ben Affleck. They are already parents to daughters Violet Anne, 6 next month, and Seraphina Rose Elizabeth, 3 in January.

Speaking in the recent issue of Hello! Magazine, Una Healy and her rugby star boyfriend Ben Foden revealed that the baby they are expecting in March 2012 is going to be a little girl – news quite fitting for The Saturdays singer who was brought up with all girls. She said:
“I come from a family of all girls, I went to an all girls school and I’m in a girl band, so I guess it’s fitting that I’m having a daughter.”
Boyfriend Ben says he is equally as “delighted,” with the news and although baby on the way wasn’t planned – it wasn’t that much of a surprise either.
“We weren’t trying for a baby. But we’d talked about starting a family and we’re in a loving and comitted relationship, so it wasn’t a massive shock. I was over the moon. I plan on spending the rest of my life with Una.”
While the pregnancy might not have been a big surprise – one thing that has suprised 30-year-old Una is people’s reaction to that fact that she still plans to go on tour with The Saturdays in December despite being around 6 months in her pregnancy at that point.
“I’ve been quite surprised that people have said: “How will you do this tour?” Naturally I’ll be careful and I’d never do anything that would put our baby at risk. But I’m pregnant, not ill.
“Loads of women continue to work through their pregnancies and this is my job, so why wouldn’t I carry on doing what I love – especially when I feel so well.”
