There are a lot of back-to-school stories coming out of Hollywood right now. Celebrities go through this time of year just like us. Although, they probably have a little more help than any of us can afford. 

While the youngsters head back to familiar schools and classrooms, it’s the moms who are sending kids off to college that seem the most torn up. Understandably! It’s not every day that our children leave the nest for the first time!

Also, how is it the end of August already? Did this summer seem to zoom by faster than any other? It’s almost over, so make sure you enjoy it. Grab a cool drink, sit out in the fresh air, soak up those last moments of this vibrant season—and catch up on this celebrity gossip!

Kelly Ripa’s Daughter Leave for College

Anyone who watched All My Children in the 90s will remember watching the on-screen and real-life romance between Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos blossom. When the former soap opera actors eloped, some wondered if it would last. Yet, here we are, hearing stories about how their three children are almost all grown. 

Last week, Ripa and Consuelos took to social media to share a sweet snap of their daughter, Lola Grace Consuelos, 18, going off to college. The Instagram post showed Ripa kissing her daughter on the cheek with the caption, “The nest is getting roomy……..” Meanwhile, Consuelos captioned his image with “2 down… 1 to go…” Lola will join older brother (and Riverdale actor) Michael, 22, at New York University. The longtime married couple still has one child, Joaquin, 16, still at home.

Blake Lively’s Candid Birthday Tribute

If there’s one thing that’s clear about Ryan Reynolds, it’s that he loves being silly. Whether it’s in his films or real life, he seems to always be poking fun at everything—even his pregnant wife. Blake Lively is expecting the couples’ third child, and for her 32nd birthday, Reynolds posted a photo tribute to the mother of his children.

Aside from the very first one, the collection of less than flattering pictures show Lively in a variety of poses, mostly blurred or with her eyes closed. Naturally, the media outlets have been sharing the images, so let’s hope Lively had a good laugh about them. Reynolds has made it very clear that his marriage is a priority, and that spending time with Blake and their kids comes first.

“If she is doing a movie in Thailand and I am doing a movie in Vancouver we would just never see each other. We operate as a unit, and that works really well for us,” Reynolds said. “The kids stay with us, and the family stays together, and that is where home is. So if we are in Spain or Utah or New York, as long as we are together, we’re home.”

The couple, who wed in 2012, share daughters James, 4, and Inez, 2.

Kristen Bell’s Kids “Know Everything” About Frozen 2

For six long years, fans have been clamoring for updates on what’s happening with Anna, Elsa and the whole gang in Arendelle. The wait is almost over. Two lucky kids already know the scoop, though, and so far they haven’t let anything slip!

Actress Kristen Bell (Anna), has revealed that her daughters (with husband, Dax Shepherd), already “know everything” about Frozen 2. “I have told them the entire plotline,” Bell admitted. “They know everything, they know all the new characters, they know all the new songs. And they can sing them, but they know they’re gonna get big time busted if they tell anyone.”

Well, if any major spoilers about the movie come out, we should question 4-year-old Delta and 6-year-old Lincoln first! The highly anticipated Frozen 2 will hit theaters on November 22.
