Has this week been quiet for you? A weird slump seems to settle in during that second half of January every single year! Fortunately, we still have news about our favorite celebrity mothers to give us a little boost. Here are the latest stories:
Kate Middleton Supports Families
It’s easy to look at Kate Middleton and assume so much about her life but, according to the mother of three (including the future king of England!), “everybody experiences the same struggle” when it comes to raising a family.
The Duchess of Cambridge was on hand at a Family Action charity event where she helped launch FamilyLine, a new national helpline run by trained volunteers who can provide telephone, email and text support to families who are going through a tough time. This is such an important initiative.
Speaking directly to the needs of parents, the Duchess explained, “You get a lot of support with the baby years…particularly in the early days up to the age of about one, but after that there isn’t a huge amount—lots of books to read.” Having someone to actually talk to can make such a big difference and, hopefully, services like this will become more widely available everywhere.
Hilary Duff Fawns Over New Baby’s Lips
Anyone who has snuggled up with a new baby will know that it’s such an amazing time of discovery and wonder. Hilary Duff, who gave birth to daughter Banks Violet, three months ago took a moment to fawn over the little girl’s “Perfect little ♥️ shaped lips” in a picture she shared on Instagram.
Since coming into the world, Banks has been featured in several posts alongside her dad, Matthew Koma, and her six-year-old brother, Luca, whom Duff shares with ex-husband, Mike Comrie. It seems like the new family is taking every opportunity to enjoy this magical time in their lives!
Police Check on Blac Chyna
Over the weekend, the Los Angeles Police Department received a call alleging that Blac Chyna was intoxicated and potentially neglectful of her two children, King, 6 (whom she shares with Tyga), and Dream, 2, whose father is Rob Kardashian. Fortunately, the claims were unfounded and no arrests were made following the visit.
By the next day, however, the police were back on Chyna’s doorstep to attend to a “civil standby.” There were no altercations at the time but, rather, the cops were there to ensure that a former makeup artist could retrieve her belongings without incident. Apparently, it went well so, hopefully, things can settle down now!
