Princess Charlotte started her first day of nursery school last week and she charmed the pants off of audiences that peeped the adorable photos her mom Duchess Catherine took of her the morning of.
The photos were taken right before she made the 5 minute walk to Willcocks Nursery School from the Cambridge’s London home. William and Kate released a statement along with the photos. Big brother Prince George started primary school at Thomas’s Battersea in September, a £20K-a-year family-run establishment situated in an old grammar school in Wandsworth.
Apparently, the young princess, like her brother, already speaks two languages, so she will be ahead of the other students who attend for the price of £3,000 per school term.
According to the Metro UK, Princess Charlotte has been practicing with her Palencia-born nanny, Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo. A source is reported to have told People magazine the young Princess has learned several Spanish phrases and is ‘very sweet and very confident — she’s always chatting away’. The source also described her as ‘so polite, but also fun and energetic,’ adding, ‘She has beautiful manners.’
Charlotte was styling as well in the first day of school photo in a double-breasted burgundy Razorbill style coat by Amaia Kids, Mary Janed with hard sole in maroon by Spanish designers Doña Carmen, and a soft cashmere scarf by Marie Chantel which offers a collection of luxury children’s merchandise. It was founded by Princess Marie-Chantal, wife of Crown Prince Pavlos, the eldest son of King Constantine II of Greece.

Congrats to singer-songwriter Jordin Sparks who recently announced she is married and newly pregnant, E! reports.
The American Idol winner shared the news to PEOPLE that she and her beau Dana Isaiah tied the knot while vacationing in Hawaii with a small group of friends.
“It just more solidifies the whole team sentiment of a relationship,” Sparks explained to the magazine. “You know you’re still individuals, but at the same time everything is about ‘we’ and ‘us’ as opposed to ‘you’ and ‘I.'”
She wanted to keep it secret but he wanted to be out with it, apparently.
“He’s been like, ‘I want to shout it from the mountain tops!'” she told the mag of her aspiring model husband. “We’re really proud to be married to each other and to be celebrating this.”
A month after marrying, they found out they were expecting.
“It’s been really crazy because everything changes. Once we got over the initial shock of it, now again just like it is with the marriage, to be able to share that this amazing thing is happening, it’s such a great thing,” the “No Air” singer shared. “We did this together!”
She knows but has not released the sex of her baby but is happy with the unexpected but welcome change.
I’m extremely grateful because life is nuts. This is the best part so far because I have [Dana] and I have this little one and I have a new family,” the pop singer says. “I’m the most content I’ve ever been in my life.”
So sweeeeet!!! Congrats!

The supermodel, 32, and her billionaire businessman husband, 42, welcomed their second child — daughter Elle — on Friday (October 20) in Israel, PEOPLE reports.
The newborn joins the couple’s 14-month-old daughter Liv.
“Our hearts are full of love right now, as I am excited to announce I am a mom of two,” gushed the model in a statement.
“We welcomed Liv’s little sister, Elle, into the world on Friday, Oct. 20 at 8:50 p.m, weighing 3 kilos. We are all happy, healthy and eager to start this new chapter in our lives,” she added.”
The couple — who wed in September 2015 in Haifa, Israel — announced their second pregnancy in March.
Zoe Saldana doesn’t want you to invite her and her kids over your house for a play date. Well, if you were friends of hers and had kids close to age as hers and were so inclined anyway.
The Guardians of the Galaxy star declared that she wouldn’t want her twin boys Cy and Bowie to be restricted.
“Our kids are free,” the Avatar actress told PEOPLE magazine. “We’re rambunctious. We’re a loud family, and we don’t stop from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. And literally, we just don’t have any play dates. You can always come to our house, our doors are open. But we don’t ever want them to be exposed to negligence, or to someone getting angry with them for just being boys.”
Saldana and her husband Marc Perego recently welcomed a third child, son Zen, to the family. She rarely shows photos of the boys’ face on her social media accounts, similar to how Beyonce, Kerry Washington, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds and other celebs have shielded their kids from public scrutiny and maintain the privacy of their kids who did not ask to be born into stardom. We can respect that, right?
New Girl star Zooey Deschanel and her husband Jacob Pechenik have welcomed their second child together, a baby boy!
The couple named the new arrival Charlie Wolf, TODAY reports. According PEOPLE the baby was born sometime last week. He joins big sister Elsie Otter, who turns 2 in July. Like big sister, Charlie’s middle name is an animal.
Deschanel told TODAY‘s Willie Geist back in October 2015 that they named her after the animal which her and her husband both like
“We just really liked the name Elsie, and then we both love otters because they’re so sweet and also smart,” said Deschanel, laughing.
“They use tools, they keep their favorite tools, they hold hands while they sleep. There are so many amazing things about otters,” she added. “They’re wonderful animals.”
Congrats to the family!
Congrats to actress Amanda Seyfried and her brand spanking new husband Thomas Sadoski on the birth of their first child together.
A rep for the couple told PEOPLE magazine that they had a baby girl, but no news yet had been released about her name. The birth comes a week after Sadoski told The Late Late Show that they got hitched in a secret ceremony this month on March 12.
They announced that they were expecting last November 2016. He currently stars in CBS’s Life in Pieces and she is best known for her role in Mean Girls.
The US Secret Service will have one more Trump to guard soon and that is because US President Donald Trump‘s son Eric Trump and his wife Lara are expecting their first child this September, PEOPLE reports.
“We found out on my birthday, which was pretty cool,” Eric said about the news. The couple already know they are having a baby boy. They married in 2015 at Mar-A-Largo in Florida, the family resort and a weekend vacation home for DJT.
Lara is a former producer at Inside Edition producer and is now an animal advocate and tells the site that she’s feeling great aw she’s in her second trimester, she’s feeling great.
“I was exhausted in the beginning,” she said. “It surprised me, because I’m a very active person, and until the fatigue hit, I didn’t believe it would actually happen to me,” she says. “It really affected me. But I’m feeling really good now.”
Though this will be their first child, it will be Donald Trump‘s ninth grandkid in his very large blended family.
Eric’s bro, Donald Jr has five kids with his wife Vanessa and his sister Ivanka has three with husband Jared Kushner. Their half sister, Donald’s child with wife Marla Maples, Tiffany Trump has no children and isn’t married.
“We really loved the name Charlie, but we’d already named our dog that, so it’s out,” says Eric. Funny! Congrats!
Congratulations to Janet Jackson who gave birth to her first child, a son, today, Tuesday, January 3, a rep told PEOPLE magazine.
This is the first baby for Jackson and her husband since 2012, Qatari business tycoon Wissam al Mana. The couple have decided to name him Eissa al Mana. Her rep
The couple kept the pregnancy pretty private throughout, though they were spotted out and about in the UK doing some baby shopping, and a spokesperson later revealed that the pop icon was excited about become a mom.
This summer, the “Design of the Decade” singer announced to fans via social media that she had plans to put off her “Unbreakable” tour to focus on carrying her child, which at age 50, would require care, as can be imagined.
Despite persistent rumors that she and ex husband James DeBarge had a child during their marriage, the evidence, as we reported on the blog late last year, does not support any of the theories, or speculation that their would-be child was raised by a sibling.
Congrats to the happy couple and the new arrival. Welcome to the world, Eissa!
Audrina Partidge is the latest celeb momma to share a breastfeeding photo. The TV host and lifestyle blogger recently talked with PEOPLE about her early life with her newborn daughter, Kirra Max, who she welcomed with fiance Corey Bohan this past June.
In the photo, taken by her sister Casey Patridge Loza, Audrina is looking away while baby nurses.
“@caseyloza always capturing me in moments #momonthego,” she captioned the sweet moment. To no surprise, the majority of the people commenting under PEOPLE’s article expressed disgust at seeing her breast and annoyed that this moment was made into an article. We’ve blogged about the routine outrage here and here and here and here.
Many others have shared, but it isn’t always met with positive response.
And our position remains that these images support the normalization of breastfeeding. Society is rarely angered over cleavage which reveals the same amount of a woman’s breast as in an undershirt breastfeeding image, people, generally, but get annoyed over a mom nourishing her baby.
“Breastfeeding was the most painful thing,” she said of nursing her 13-week-old little girl. “For me, it was more painful than the c-section!” adding that “the first two to three weeks were excruciating. But I got through it!”

Love this! I’d much rather see this than another Kartrashian exposed dumper in my face. To all those haters who are so offended by BFing and images like this, where do you morals lie? Nobody is offended by women in Hollywood showing their breasts in a sexual nature for publicity, but a photo of a BFing mother that shows far less than a cleavage baring dress is offensive? Grow up and move on. It is legal to breastfeed and wonderful that more young women are choosing to do it. If you don’t like it, be an adult, and skim right passed it. You do have the freedom to look the other way. It’s called minding your own business.
