Famous celebrities that embraced parenthood in their teens!

Hollywood celebrities usually pursue parenthood in their late thirties or forties after they have lived it up. Some stars though, became parents in their teens and even though their path ahead was challenging, they overcame adversities and beat odds to live the life they chose.

Here’s a list of the early timers:

  1. Sofia Vergara, the Modern Family star, gave birth to her son when she was all of 19! Manolo, her son is now a star in his own right, having featured in commercials and produced his own Youtube series. Manolo’s father and Sofia were high school sweethearts and though they’ve separated, they still co-parent their son. Now that’s sweet.
  2. LeBron James, the NBA all- star had to grow up really fast. The standout athlete found out he was going to be a father during his rookie year in the pros. Although he was very scared when he heard the news and thought it’s going to ruin his career, he went on to father two more children with girlfriend Savannah Brinson and eventually married her.
  3. Niki Taylor, the American supermodel had a big load on her plate by the time she hit her early twenties. She became pregnant with Jake hunter’s twin babies when she was all of 18 and by the time she hit 21 she divorced the kids’ father. She married Burney Lunar in 2006 and had two more kids. Quite a life this!

Parenting is a big challenge by itself, and to embrace star hood along with it must have been difficult for these celebs. Hats off to them for carrying on.

Prince funeral or memorial service not yet held

Prince’s family has released a statement that he has not been laid to rest yet.

“We would like everyone to know that, contrary to previous and current reports, there has been no memorial, funeral or tribute service for Prince that was organized or authorized by the family or Paisley Park representatives,” the family said. “Together, the family is planning an official memorial service and public event to take place in the near future.”

There was apparently a private memorial at his estate in Minnesota a few days after his death but the family now says that it wasn’t an official service.

“Prince and his music influenced so many people that we feel inspired to celebrate his life and legacy in just the right way,” the statement continued. “We appreciate the public’s patience and have been comforted by your outpouring of love, support and condolences. We look forward to sharing with the world this celebration of, and farewell to, our Prince. Details will be coming soon.”

The legendary singer died in late April.

Kim Basinger speaks about her public divorce back in 2002

Kim Basinger has spoken about her divorce and how her daughter, Ireland, was affected.

The 62-year-old was married to Alec Baldwim for 9 years before they split in 2002. At that time, their daughter was only 9 years old. She said that her public divorce affected her parenting.

“Divorce is hard on a kid, no matter how you cut it. And ours was very public and nasty,” Basinger said. “So I brought up Ireland in a very unconventional way.”

She said that she made extra effort to fill Ireland’s childhood with love. “I just wanted her to be free. If she wanted to have her friends over and write over the walls with pen, that was fine,” she said. “I wanted her childhood to be full of love and light and animals and friends.”

She says she is past the problems they faced through the years and Alec and she are amicable now.  “[Alec and I are] cool now, though,” she said. “Life goes on.”

“There were times I could have chosen [my movies] better. I did this film, The Marrying Man, where I met my eventual [now-ex] husband, Alec Baldwin, but I was teeter-tottering because I had also been offered Sleeping with the Enemy],” she said. “Isn’t it funny that I turned down Sleeping with the Enemy and then I went on to sleep with the enemy!”

“I think it’s possible to date someone when you’re 20 and end up with them when you’re 55. Anything is possible. But my taste in men has changed a lot over the years,” she explained. “When you’re young you’re attracted to the ‘bad boy,’ only to find out that they’re actually just bullies or insecure – you’re attracted to fantasies.”

Susan Sarandon shares her opinion about breastfeeding

Susan Sarandon wants to talk about breastfeeding and all the debate surrounding it.

“Nursing can be really, really challenging,” Sarandon, 69, said.

“I was very lucky in terms of nursing, but every baby doesn’t respond the same way, and then you get mastitis and it hurts if you choose to nurse — not everybody does. And then the relationship with the pump really becomes a nightmare.”

Sarandon has three children: 31-year-old daughter Eva Amurri Martino, 26-year-old son Henry Robbins, and 23-year-old son Miles.

“The first time, I had a [breast pump] unit in my house that looked like an iron lung that I had to rent from Bigelow’s because they were the only ones that had it,” the actress said. “This was 30 years ago.”

Her daughter is pregnant with her second child and she says it is a little easier for her. “Now, my daughter [pumps] both [breasts] at the same time with this little tiny machine and she had a whole system in place,” Sarandon.

Miley Cryus and Elsa Pataky have a girls day out

They are not engaged but Miley Cyrus still spends quality time with Liam Hemsworth.

23-year-old Cyrus was seen with Elsa Pataky, Hemsworth’s sister-in-law as well as a few others for a girls’ day out in Los Angeles.

“True friends are never apart, maybe in distance but never in heart!” 39-year-old Pataky said.

Cyrus was wearing a pair of high-waisted jean capri pants decorated with Disney-themed images and a striped short-sleeve crop top. Pataky was dressed in boyfriend jeans and a floral blouse.

“I am not engaged, no,” Liam had said a week ago.

The two were engaged but they split. Reports that they were back together surfaced recently but they haven’t officially said anything.

“Miley is where she has wanted to be for the past two years. Back with Liam and very happy,” a source said in January. “Miley never wanted to split. Things just got so bad that they really needed the break.”

Charlize Theron speaks of the love between her children

Charlize Theron couldn’t be happier about her children.

During the premiere of The Huntsman: Winter’s War, her new movie, she couldn’t stop raving about her children. She says that the love between them is “unbelievable to watch.” She has a 4-year-old son Jackson and an infant daughter, August.

Theron says she was the only child and it gives her great pleasure to “watch something so sacred and beautiful.”

She adds, “He walks into a room and he doesn’t even look at her and she just lights up. I’m in front of her going crazy trying to get a reaction… It’s so beautiful.”

So, does she want another one?

 “Both of my hands are really full right now,” Theron, 40.

 “She’s great, she’s growing like a weed,” Theron told about her daughter. “It’s insane — it’s unbelievable how quickly they become little people. I’m trying to hang on to my little baby, but she’s just fighting right through that like, ‘I’m ready to go.’”

 There’s not one moment where I don’t realize how unbelievably lucky I have it,” Theron said. “They’re little gems, they really are. They’re amazing.”

She added of Jackson: “There was no way I couldn’t thank my son because it was a tough movie for me to make. And he was in the trailer every single day.”

Gwyneth Paltrow says a strict healthy diet is unrealistic

Gwyneth Paltrow is concerned about the toxins we live amidst these days. She is worried about the environment and genetically modified food but she knows that enforcing a strict diet will not really help her or her kids.

“I don’t believe you should rule out any kind of food. I believe in enjoying life,” Paltrow, 43, said. “I’m not a good dieter and since I’ve had kids, I have loosened up a lot.

“My favorite ‘bad food’?” she continued. “French fries. I would eat them at every meal if I could.”

Her kids, Apple and Moses, are also the same. “You can’t tell them, ‘No Coke, no cake.’ It is not realistic,” Paltrow said. “Their favorite foods are pasta and french fries. It’s about trying to augment that with something healthy.”

Previously she had said that she prefers organic foods and trying avoiding processed foods that come laden with numerous chemicals and pesticides. However, she also said there’s “a lot of misinformation about what I actually eat.”

“I really don’t have any rules,” she said in January.

“Apple is always experimenting,” She told said later. “A lot of her recipes revolve around pizza.”

Ne-Yo is now a father!

They are not just newly wed. They are new parents too!

Just three weeks after their wedding, Ne-Yo and Crystal Renay Smith became parents to a baby boy.

She announced this on Snapchat with an adorable pic of her holding the baby. She captioned it, “Prince SJ has arrived.”

Before this, she had shared a pic of her hubby kissing her baby bump. “I began this journey with you and here we are at the finish line stronger than ever TOGETHER! I feel so blessed and frightened at the same time but I know that God and you have my back. I can look to you for strength when I feel mine failing and know that in you I’ll find me,” she wrote with the image.

“My family, friends and sincere supporters know how monumental tonight is for me and I thank you all for being there for me and loving me unconditionally through my process. I couldn’t have made it through without you. #SJOnTheWay #MiddleOfMarch #neyo #CrystalRenay #BabySmith #TonightIsTheNight”

The couple revealed their pregnancy and their engagement together on Twitter back in August.

“Clearing the air..@mscrystalrenay and I are ENGAGED to be married next year. And yes we are expecting #FromTheHorsesMouth,” the singer Tweeted.

Disick parties as Kourtney Tweets cryptically

Kourtney Kardashian has not commented on the recent news that Scott Disick (her ex) is partying with alcohol and girls in Mexico.

“A smile hides my pain, a hug masks my heartache, and a laugh covers my tears,” She Tweeted cryptically, though.

The two have three kids together. They were together for nine years before splitting in July. Apparently, before he left for Mexico, they were spotted partying with Kanye West and seemed “flirty.”

“Scott’s with girls at the house, who are all models and super hot, he’s having an amazing time. He’s single and doing what single guys do, have fun and hang out with single hot girls,” a source told. “He is definitely drinking but keeping it under control.”

“Scott has been saying how things are much easier now that he’s not with Kourtney. She complained way too much and had so many rules,” the source added. “She was never happy and he’s realizing that now. He’s saying how much he is loving life right now!”

However, Disick recently said that he feels his behavior was not portrayed fairly in the media.

“The truth is I never lied and said that I was never going to have a beer again,” Disick said. “I never said I was never going to have a cigarette again. I never lied and said I was never going to go to the beach again. I never lied and said I was not going to be around my friends and their girlfriends and girls and friends.”

“The truth is rehab did help me and now I’m just trying to be responsible,” he said. “I’m not out here trying to get wasted, but you know what, I will have a beer on the beach. I’m not doing drugs, I’m not doing anything insane, so I think people just need to relax … I just want to try to live my life.”
