It’s more than halfway through the month of August. Where did the time go? As the summer heat begins to cool down, some pretty interesting stories involving famous moms have emerged. Here’s what’s going on in Hollywood.
Lily Aldridge Is Pregnant Again!
Over the weekend, Lily Aldridge took to Instagram to announce that she is expecting her second child with husband, Kings of Leon’s Caleb Followill. The 32-year-old Victoria’s Secret model shared a sweet shot captioned “SURPRISE” in which her growing belly is on full display as she wears a bikini.
It must be an exciting time for the couple who are already parents to six-year-old Dixie Pearl Followill. Back in 2016, Aldridge told People: “I was so one way before I had my daughter [Dixie], and after I had my daughter, something switched in me and I totally changed my fashion. I was less scared to make choices that people may not like. I realized, ‘I don’t care.’ If I want to do something fun or if I want to try something new I’m gonna try it and if people don’t like it that’s okay.”
Many moms can probably relate to how motherhood changed them on a deeply personal level so it’s great that she shared her own experiences. We’ll have to wait and see how this new baby inspires the next transformation!
Levi Johnston Joining Bristol Palin on Teen Mom OG
When it was announced that Sarah Palin’s daughter, Bristol, was joining the upcoming season of Teen Mom OG, it seemed dramatic enough but some new additions have ensured that there will be fireworks. Viewers of the popular MTV show can expect to see Palin’s ex, Levi Johnston, with whom she shares son, Tripp, as well as Johnston’s wife, Sunny. WOW!
It will be interesting to see the dynamic between the former couple, especially since Palin just revealed that she’s “freshly divorced” from Dakota Meyer. Before their split, Meyer and Palin became parents to daughters, Sailor and Atlee.
Things could end up being totally fine but this also feels like a recipe for disaster. Let’s probably err on the side of caution and fully prepare for some explosive moments on the show and in headlines.
Melania Trump Addresses Social Media Pitfalls
Without getting political, most people can agree that President Trump uses Twitter to call people out and share his opinions. Many find it ironic, therefore, that his wife, Melania, has chosen to address online bullying as one of her platforms.
During an official appearance on Monday, Melania touched on the “harmful” aspects of social media and addressed the crowd saying, “Let’s face it: most children are more aware of the benefits and pitfalls of social media than some adults, but we still need to do all we can to provide them with information and tools for successful and safe online habits.”
Some felt that the First Lady’s comments indirectly targeted her husband’s behavior but, of course, she may have just been speaking in general terms. Either way, Melania doubled down by saying that her Be Best campaign “chooses to focus on the importance of teaching our next generation how to conduct themselves safely and in a positive manner in an online setting.”
Sounds like a good idea for everyone, not just today’s youth!
