My kids are touchy-feely, & I'm proud of it

My twins love hugs, which is great, because their mother is a touchy-feely, in-your-face Jewess with no sense of personal boundaries. From the day my son and daughter were born, I was all up in their grill, and now that they are 6, I still hug and kiss them on the regular. For me, our

A royal-adjacent baby is on the way!

It’s official: World-famous bridesmaid Pippa Middleton — sister of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton — is pregnant.

Wait — those twins are not Rumi & Sir?

Oh, to have the world wrapped around your bejeweled fingers like Beyoncé and Jay-Z. The incredibly famous couple tricked us all into thinking they had unveiled never-before-seen pictures of their twins, Rumi and Sir, on the first night of their joint “On the Run II Tour.” But even after that sneaky trickster move, they are

With a classic (& Disney-approved) baby name to boot

America Ferrera and husband Ryan Piers Williams are now the proud parents of a little boy — adorably named Sebastian, Ferrera announced on Instagram. No word yet on the origins of the adorable baby name, although we’re betting/hoping it’s because of a deep-rooted affinity for Disney’s The Little Mermaid. When 2 become 3… Welcome Sebastian

When my dad died, my kids saved me

I remember the day my parents told me about my father’s diagnosis very clearly. He had fought cancer on and off for 11 years, and it had gotten to the point that there wasn’t much more the doctors could do. I’d always known that losing a parent would be tough, but I hadn’t expected it
