Oldest sibling Maddox is the boss in that other famous big family, the Jolie-Pitts. OK! reports that Maddox, 7, is the captain of the globetrotting family of eight.
“Brad calls him ‘Maddox in charge,’” a friend of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie‘s tells OK! “He loves assigning his siblings chores!”
After Maddox puts Zahara on diaper duty for twin babies Knox and Vivienne, tells Shiloh to go polish up the Wii, and commands younger brother Pax to organize the family passports and travel documents, Mad attends to his more important managerial responsibilities – like assigning rooms to all of his siblings.
“Brad showed the kids pictures of the mansion they’re leasing on Long Island, and Mad decided to select the bedrooms for each of his brothers and sisters,” the friend reveals. Maddox definitely picked the room with the biggest closet for himself; he’s gotta have space to store all his fierce moon boots. [Photo: Getty Images]
The Federline brothers are going to the Circus! After a series of negotiations between Britney Spears, her conservator father Jamie, and ex-hubby Kevin Federline, an agreement has been reached regarding Britney taking her sons on her Circus tour. Sean Preston, 3, and Jayden James, 2, will be joining their mama from March 3 in New Orleans to April 28th in Chicago.
The news was confirmed on Britney’s blog by her tour designer Jamie King. “Britney is so excited to kick off her tour. She has been enjoying every moment of rehearsals and is looking forward to performing in front of a live audience again. Both Sean Preston and Jayden James will, in fact, be joining Britney throughout the duration of her tour,” he said.
Also joining the Circus is K-Fed, who reportedly will get a house and $4000 per week for each week Brit is on tour. [Source: BritneySpears.com, TMZ.com; Photo: Getty Images, Splash News Online]

With both Alyson Hannigan and Cobie Smulders pregnant, a lot of people have wondered if their growing bellies would be utilized for a storyline on How I Met Your Mother. After all, Hannigan’s Lily is happily married to Marshall (played by I Love You, Man‘s Jason Segel), and it’s been awhile since someone took advantage of new babies in sitcomland. Not gonna happen, Hannigan told Us Magazine.
It had been discussed whether or not they would write it in, and they had the opportunity to, but just working with babies for one week confirmed it’s a good thing they’re not writing it in. Babies are hard to work with!
Jason Segel is not the best with little babies. They seem to scream every time he comes near them. But once they’re, like, kids, they love him. So maybe if Lily could just pop out a 4-year old, it would be OK. But newborns? Noooo …. keep them away from Jason!
Awww! If anyone could put a novel spin on pregnancy cliches, it would have been these guys. But with ratings up and contracts extended, there’s plenty of time for the producers to change their minds.
Knox and Vivienne Marcheline Jolie-Pitt are already following in their globetrotting siblings’ footsteps and racking up the stamps on their passports. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie carried their six-month-old twins, while the rest of the Brangelina bunch, Maddox,7, Pax,5, Zahara,4, and Shiloh,2, walked along their parents’ side as the family touched down at Narita International Airport in Chiba, Japan.

Did David Banda get unfairly overlooked for the Cutest Kid of ’08 in our Scandalist awards? We’re thinking so judging by this photo. Madonna and Guy‘s youngest kid looks the business on a skiing trip with dad – those boots are worth an award on their own. And teaming the bright colors with simple, stylish black and gray – bravo, sir. We think the race in ’09 could be hotting up already… [Photo: Splash News Online]
Are Denise Richards and Brooke Mueller finally making nice after all the catfighting over Charlie Sheen? In Touch claims Charlie’s ex-wife and Brooke, currently pregnant with twins, have mended fences. “Brooke and Denise are on friendly terms now and she’s even thinking of inviting her to the baby shower in February,” the mag claims.
Since Charlie hooked up with Brooke after divorcing Denise in 2006, the two ladies have exchanged less than kind words about each other.
In 2007, when Charlie had already hooked up with Brooke, Denise filed a restraining order against him claiming that she needed to keep their daughters Sam,4, and Lola,3, away from him for their protection. Of the filing, Brooke said, “Denise’s claims are laughable at best.”
After Charlie and Denise battled it out in court over allowing their daughters to appear on Denise’s E! reality show, Brooke told Us magazine of the show, “Charlie and I both think it’s exploitative and not good.”
Brooke even claimed that after Denise had urged her “to be open to having a friendship with her,” Denise “tried to get Charlie to father another child and reconcile with her.”
So will we really see these two laughing over lunch soon? [Source: In Touch; Photo: Getty Images]
Kids! They grow up fast these days. Lourdes Leon, for example, is barely 12 years old and already looking like a Hollywood movie star in her plaid jacket, thigh-high leggings and Doc Martins. Stick a Lollipop in her mouth — and she’d look more Lolita than Lola (her real nickname).
Should mom Madonna swap out her boots for Keds and her Rapunzel-length hair for a bowl cut to keep her from looking like a 19-year-old celebrity? Or are we making something out of nothing? [Photo: Splash News Online]
Hurrah! Another celebrity baby has joined the world, and in keeping with the trend for ’09 – hello, family Affleck! – he has no name yet. Welsh singer Charlotte Church,22, has given birth to her second child with rugby player Gavin Henson.
“Charlotte has literally just this minute phoned us to let us know that she gave birth to a little boy today. He was born just after midnight at her and Gavin’s home with Gavin in attendance at the birth. They haven’t yet announced a name for their son, but we can confirm that he weighed in at 7lb 5oz and that mum and baby are both doing just fine,” reports her blog.
Lovely news for Charlotte there, although we’re dying to find out whether Wikipedia is on the money with its reckoning that he’s called Rocco Montgomery. We’re sort of hoping not, but hey, we’re open minded about this whole celeb name thing. [Photo: Getty Images]
Why do we always forgive Britney Spears for everything? A comeback that’s clearly not 100% sensible — witness her far-from-slick performance on the X-Factor and her worrying mental state in docu Britney: For The Record — means the shine has come off New Britney for us recently. But that’s all been forgotten now that we’ve seen these super-cute pictures of Brit and her even more adorable sons at her brother Brian’s wedding. We can barely gather our breath for squeaking “AWWWWW” at Sean Preston’s (or is it Jayden James’? We can never be quite sure) baby tuxedo, and that’s even before we’ve checked out Britney’s stunning dress. Black, sexy without being slutty, and showing off her new gym-honed bod means she looks the business.
It’s just such a shame that in the Spears family wedding albums, Britney’s outfits at her own previous two weddings (#1 Cut off shorts, baseball cap, drunk look, #2 short-shorts as part of her wedding outfit, “Pimps and Maids” velour tracksuits for the wedding party) just don’t come up to scratch in the same way.
