For a combination child star, sibling of Britney Spears and teen mom, Jamie Lynn Spears is way more functional than she has any right to be. In the new issue of Glamour, Jamie Lynn wants everyone to know she’s done a lot of growing up since she had daughter Maddie at 16. Let’s start with a very mature recounting of how she became accidentally pregnant with boyfriend Casey Aldridge. Oh yes, girl goes there. “I believe in safety and birth control as prevention. But like many young girls…I was really scared to go to the doctor,” the former Zoey 101 star reveals. “And I was on a Nickelodeon show, and it [felt] especially embarrassing to ask someone to put me on birth control.” What’s Jamie keeping over there? Oh, she’s keeping it real? Just wanted to make sure.
Now at the cusp of 21, Jamie Lynn is finally easing back into the spotlight, having made her singing debut this past November in Nashville. Just keep in mind when you’re blasting her album in a few years that Jamie has not had an easy go of things. “When I saw MTV’s Teen Mom was coming out, I remember thinking, Oh my God, I cannot wait to see this show because there’s someone else out there,” she admits. “I mean, I feel for those girls. I’ve been that girl. It does show that motherhood is hard. There were so many times—especially when Maddie would get sick—when I would cry to myself and think, I really don’t know what to do.” We can tell we’re going to like this new Jamie Lynn a lot. Like, Britney-circa-In The Zone levels of like. Just to be clear, that is the album that has “Toxic” on it.

Seal and Heidi Klum announced their separation to the world on Monday, but we’re guessing the four most important people in their world already knew about it. “Just explaining to them that things will be different, you know, without going into too much detail. But a lot of things won’t change,” Seal told Access Hollywood Live when asked how he and Klum broke the news to sons Henry and Johan and daughters Leni and Lou. We sympathize! News of Heidi and Seal’s break-up was hard enough for us, and we’re grown adults! Grown adults who don’t, you know, know either of them in real life!
Said the singer of his young brood, “The main thing is to make sure that they feel that they’re loved, make sure that they understand that their parents love each other, make sure that they understand if there are any changes, it is absolutely nothing to do with them.” That does make us feel a little better about their split. We’re feeling so good, in fact, that we’re going look at all of Seal and Heidi’s adorable coordinated Halloween costumes again and not even weep uncontrollably. Ugh, no, we were wrong! All it took were those adorable ape costumes and we broke like an egg!

That’s the thing about kids. They’ll always let you know, in no uncertain terms, whether they like something or not. Judging the look on Jessica Alba‘s daughter’s face, she really doesn’t like karate. These photographs are of Honor Marie, escorted by her nanny, at her very first karate class in Santa Monica. First, and by the looks of it, last class, that is. Honor probably wants to hang out with little sister, Haven, and live up to their reputations of being the cutest pair of sisters in town. There’s plenty of time to beat up boys later.

Where are they exactly? This photograph could be at any number of beachy, tropical resorts, but they’re not telling. Charlie Sheen, his ex-wife Denise Richards and their kids Sam and Lola and Denise’s adopted six month old baby girl Eloise are all enjoying themselves at a secret location right now. His other ex-wife, Brooke Mueller, is currently in rehab after being arrested for assault and drug possession, FYI. It’s nice to see Charlie and Denise getting along because it got quite acrimonious — not to mention dysfunctional — there in the middle. The actor just tweeted this photograph, pictured above, of the family, that read, “what’s better than a modern family vacation!?! love spending winter break w/ denise richards & my kids!” Whatever works, right?

Jessica Alba spent the weekend out and about Hollywood with her two daughters — Honor and Haven Garner Warren. The picture above is of little baby Haven and it has reduced us to puddless of gooey mush. Look at those CHEEKS. This is one of the cutest babies ever and we want to give her a cuddle, just like her mum is. Older sister Honor, on the other hand, is no less adorable and is growing up to be a stylish little miss already. Beret, lace dress, patterened tights and a cardigan? Yes, please! To see what we’re talking about, click after the jump for a bonus picture of Haven and of fashionable Honor, who we think, are the coolest pair of sisters in town. Read more…
Got it, paparazzi? Suri Cruise makes her stance perfectly clear after having dinner with her mom, Katie Holmes, in downtown Tribeca in New York City yesterday. So back off!

Reese Witherspoon and family looked like they had a blast at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, yesterday. It’s nice to see her with her husband, Jim Toth, and kids Ava and Deacon, all letting their hair down. Although her hair’s more up than down in the photograph on the left taken at Splash Mountain. Ava’s expression (she’s the second from the bottom) is pretty hilarious too — her eyes look like they’re about to pop out of her head. Looking at Reese taking a photo with a Mouse-ear-wearing Deacon makes us want to regress and go running to our moms too. More than anything, all of this just proves what we’ve always thought of Reese — that’s she a really committed, solid mom.Â Stay cool, Family Witherspoon-Toth.

Can we be friends with Kingston Rossdale, please? Mom Gwen StefaniÂ may have picked his clothes out initially, but we have a feeling he’d doing his wardrobe all by himself now. Mr. Kingston accompanied his mum and dad, Gavin Rossdale, to his grandparents house for Thanksgiving in L.A. yesterday. And he wore this dapper bowtie and blazer combination for the occasion. If his grandpa and grandma didn’t melt looking at him, then we’ll do it for them.
Some kids have all the luck. And fabulously wealthy parents. At a charity auction for amFAR in Hollywood last night, Sandra Bullock‘s agents, Kevin Huvane and Bryan Lourd, dropped $14,000 for a print of Andy Warhol’s Peaches as a gift to baby Louis Bardo, Us Weekly reports. Who, um, is 1 year old. Now, I don’t remember being 1, but I’m pretty sure at that age I was about as interested in a piece of cardboard as I would be in a pop art masterpiece. I’m sure he’ll grow into it. And also, it’s for AIDS research, so you can’t really fault that kind of extravagance.
Someone forgot to invite me to this benefit, so I’m not entirely sure which version of the print they bought, but here’s one, just so you get an idea. Nice bright colors, kind of like you’d see in a picture book. But picture books are for peasants.
Call us star-struck, but the celebrity dazzle in this photograph is blinding us.Ã‚Â Angelina Jolie and her family are currentlyÃ‚Â in London and we didn’t know this, but she seems to be quite chummy with Gwen Stefani! Or maybe their kids are friends? Either way, Angie took (some of) her kids — Zahara, Knox, Vivienne and ShilohÃ‚Â — to visit Gwen and her two sons Kingston and Zuma. They arrived around 5pm in the evening and stayed for approximately four hours. By the looks of it, they had a chill time taking Gwen’s make-up less face and mussed up hair into consideration. Angie’s got her “I’m a superstar” dark glasses on, natch. Wonder what that over-the-table conversation was like?
