Megan Fox Shares Rare Picture of Kids: Cuteness. Overload!

For years, Megan Fox was criticized for showing too much skin in various magazine pictorials.

But not even the harshest critic could accuse this actress of showing off her kids on too many occasions.

Megan Fox WonderCon Pic

As much as perhaps as big-time star in Hollywood, Fox has kept her three children very far away from the spotlight, rarely sharing an image of them online and certainly never selling any images to any supermarket tabloids.

We're guessing Fox would prefer to star in another Michael Bay-directed Transformers movie again than even contemplate doing such a thing.

Late Monday, however, the beautiful brunette shocked her Instagram followers by posting a snapshot of her three sons, all of whom she procreated along with Brian Austin Green.

Fox did so via a gorgeous collage that features one Polaroid of herself; one of four-year old Noah; one of three-year old Bodhi; and one of 11-month old Journey.

It may be of interest to some to note a couple things:

1. Green is holding the youngest of the three boys in one of the pictures.

2. Noah is wearing a Princess Elsa dress in honor of Frozen. (Why do we feel like some folks on the Internet will find fault with this?)

Megan Fox, Kids

Fox did not include a caption with the precious portrait.

Fox and Green almost never share pictures such as these.

However, they will occasionally post on social media in order to gush about their brood.

In November 2016, for example, Green returned from a seven-month Instagram hiatus to say nice things about his kids and to also compliment Fox in the process.

“My wife makes beautiful babies," he wrote at the time, referring specifically to little Journey.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles star filed for divorce from her husband of five years in August 2015.

However, they reconciled the following year ... just before Fox gave birth to Journey.

Megan Fox and Husband

Even during their split, it was clear Green and Fox were still hanging out and getting along, considering Fox announced her pregnancy only a few months after the couple's supposed break-up.

In other words:

Just like any two people who end a romance, but still have feelings for each other and/or who got very drunk one night in each other's presence, the stars had unprotected sex during an alleged break and... bam!

Journey was born about nine months later.

But it's all worked out for the best.

Fox and Green seem very happy as a couple and these three adorable kids have a stable, healthy household in which to grow up.

HOORAY!

Prince George Birthday Portrait: Released, Quite Possibly the Cutest Thing in History

There's cute, like when dog owners turn their best friends into precious memes.

There's really cute, like when little kids express love in adorable, innocent fashion.

And then there's super duper extraordinarily so-very-endearing-we-just-want-to-scream-all-day-in-delight cute, like when Prince George turns four years old and his family releases the following photo in celebration:

Prince George Portrait at 4

Altogether now: AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!

The very sweet child, whose birthday is on July 22, is smiling from ear to ear in the picture above, while wearing a cute striped button-up shirt.

“The Duke and Duchess are delighted to share a new official portrait of Prince George to mark His Royal Highness's fourth birthday tomorrow,” Kensington Palace shared on Instagram on Friday afternoon.

Added the Royal Family in this statement:

“The photograph was taken at Kensington Palace at the end of June by Chris Jackson.

The Duke and Duchess are very pleased to share this lovely picture as they celebrate Prince George's fourth birthday, and would like to thank everyone for all of the kind messages they have received.”

Prince George Double Wave Canada

Prince William and Kate Middleton are parents to George and a two-year old daughter named Charlotte.

They have made a point to keep the children far away from the spotlight, rarely exposing them to a curious public and/or an irritating group of paparazzi.

Every now and then, however, around the holidays or around their birthdays, the beloved couple will unveil a new official portrait such as the one featured here.

George arrived in 2013 at 4:24 p.m. local time and weighed 8 lbs 6 oz at the time of his birth.

His proud parents carried him out to meet the press a day later for his first set of pictures, figuring they might as well get the deed over with on their own terms, lest anxious photographers try breaking down the gates of their home.

Shortly thereafter, as depicted below, the Royal Family posed for a set of memorable portraits as a unit, George included.

Later this year, George will start pre-kindergarten at a private school in London.

He had previously attended nursery school at Westacre Montessori School near his family's home in Anmer Hall in Norfolk, England.

“George is very lively and Charlotte is very ladylike,” Prince William has said of his kids. “They’re both delightful of course."

As for whether or not William and Kate will soon add to their brood?

Give the rumors a rest, will ya, people?!?

Let's just focus on the precious kids they have right now!

Heroic Father Enables Daughter to Trick or Treat on Board Airplane

Good news, readers:

Not all flights conclude with a former reality star being taken away in handcuffs.

Some, in fact, end with passengers reduced to tears as the result of an inspiring act by a fellow human being.

This is one such story...

donut girl

An unnamed father on board a Virgin America flight from Boston to Los Angeles on Monday night didn't want his three-year old daughter to miss out on Halloween.

So he handed out candy to his fellow passengers and also gave them a note along with it.

The note read as follows:

My 3-year old daughter, Molly, was bummed that she wouldn’t be able to go trick-or-treating this year due to this flight… so I decided to bring trick-or-treating to her.

If you are willing, when my little donut comes down the aisle, please drop this in her basket. You’ll be making her Halloween! If you’re unwilling, no worries, just pass the treat back to me.

Thanks so much!

Oh, yes, the little girl was dressed like a donut.

Just in case you thought this tale couldn't get any cuter.

hero dad

"OMG, my heart is exploding right now. Dad of the year just passed out candy to everyone on the flight so his 3 year old could trick or treat," wrote a passenger who witnessed the act and then talked about it on Twitter.

“He started handing out the treats… He handed them out mostly to folks in the aisle and middle seats,” this Twitter user, Stephanie, told BuzzFeed News.

She added:

“When I first got on the plane, I overheard the little girl talking about how she was excited to trick or treat. I felt sad because I was thinking about how when we landed in San Francisco it would be way too late to trick or treat.”

Also making this story even better?

The father did not want to be identified or quoted by Buzzfeed.

He just wanted to make his little girl happy. That was it.

“The father said that he had this planned for a while with her as a special treat,” said Stephanie, who was sitting in front of the loved ones.

“The few rows around me were really into it and thought it was absolutely adorable.”

How could they not?!?

Stephanie told the dad that she Tweeted about him during the flight and the story had bee re-Tweeted 5,000 times already.

“I could tell he was pretty humbled hearing that what he did caused such a positive reaction," she said.

"He obviously wasn’t doing it for the reaction he just was genuinely doing it for his daughter.”

The proud mom seems to love doting on her adorable son. In May, she made him Mickey Mouse pancakes for his birthday — fitting, considering the family loves visits to Disneyland.

“His new best friend,” Ciara wrote next to a March snap of a giggly Future and The Mouse himself.

Dean McDermott is a true believer that love conquers all.

McDermott, 49, is expecting his fifth child with wife Tori Spelling and tells PEOPLE exclusively that their pregnancy speaks volumes about the state of their love-filled marriage.

“This baby is a testament to how much we love each other. And it’s a testament to Tori for staying with me. It’s amazing,” he tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue about the couple’s upcoming addition, who is due next year.

McDermott adds, “Love does conquer all. And that’s what this pregnancy says about our relationship. It’s everlasting.”

Watch this full episode of People Features: Tori & Dean, available now, on the new People/Entertainment Weekly Network (PEN). Go to PEOPLE.com/PEN, or download the PEN app on Apple TV, Roku Players, Amazon Fire TV, Xumo, Chromecast, iOS and Android devices.

The duo, who are parents to Liam, 9, Stella, 8, Hattie, 5, and Finn, 4, hit rock bottom just over three years ago when McDermott admitted to cheating on his wife.

But in the time since “everything crashed,” the couple made the conscious decision to work through the difficult times — and celebrated their 10-year anniversary this year.

“Obviously three years ago we hit a really rough patch and we made the conscious decision based on our love for each other and our love for our family as a whole to tough it out and work through it and get through it,” Spelling, 43, tells PEOPLE.

“And I’m so happy that that happened and there was never a doubt in my mind that I wanted to do that.”

Tori Spelling Opens Up About Expecting for the Fifth Time After a Dangerous Pregnancy

When Tori Spelling discovered she was pregnant with her fifth child, one of her first thoughts was to make sure that the terrifying ordeal she endured during her fourth pregnancy could be avoided.

“I thought if we had another baby, my life could potentially be in danger,” Spelling, 43, exclusively tells PEOPLE.

The actress suffered from placenta previa, a condition in which the placenta blocks the cervix, during her pregnancy with son Finn, now 4.

“Everything that could have gone wrong, went wrong,” continues Spelling, who spent three months in the hospital during her dangerous pregnancy due to excessive bleeding. “Dean [McDermott] and I created four beautiful children together and the thought of them not having a mother [if something went wrong again] was not something we were okay with.”

Luckily, Spelling does not have placenta previa this pregnancy. “We were so happy once we found out,” she says.

Adds McDermott, 49: “The doctor said that considering everything that happened the last time, this is a miracle baby that Tori got pregnant and that it’s okay.”

Now, the relieved parents of Liam, 9, Stella, 8, Hattie, 5 and Finn are focused on their healthy baby — and expanding their brood.

Says Spelling, “As far as cars and SUVs, we’re maxed out! And we’ll definitely be house hunting. We need another room. They’re already doubled up.”

Adds McDermott with a laugh, “We’re going to buy an apartment complex. Each child can have their own apartment!”

She’s been able to handle all that so hopefully we’re getting her prepared for the kind of life we live.”

Holly Madison on Son Forest’s NICU Scare After Birth: ‘I Spent Hours Thinking My Baby Couldn’t See’

Holly Madison is opening up about the birth of her son, Forest Leonardo Antonio, and the “stressful” days that ensued after he was admitted into the neonatal intensive care unit.

Moments after Madison, 36, gave birth to her second child on Aug. 7, the newborn baby was swiftly taken to the NICU where he was hooked up to “a million machines.”

In a PEOPLE exclusive interview, the former Girls Next Door star recalls that medical staff “took him away to get the fluid out of his lungs. First it was the fluid, then it was jaundice, then his eyes weren’t dilating, and I spent hours thinking my baby couldn’t see.”

Madison, who is also mom to 3-year-old daughter Rainbow Aurora and married to 42-year-old events company owner Pasquale Rotella, says the three days after her son’s birth were “stressful.”

But after doctors deemed the now 6-week-old perfectly healthy, Madison and Rotella were able to bring their baby home.

Now although Madison says the first few days were “a super emotional time,” the experience made motherhood even more meaningful. “It was such a relief,” says Madison.

In the almost two months since Forest’s birth, Madison says her “sweet” son is bonding well with the family, and big sister Rainbow has “been great.”

And now that Madison has both a boy and a girl, she notes one comical difference between the two. “Diaper changes are way harder with a boy,” Madison laughingly says. “I’m getting hosed down on a regular basis!”

Go long!

During a four-week deflategate NFL suspension, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made time to visit his alma mater University of Michigan over the weekend.

The former Wolverine, who served as honorary captain for Michigan’s game against Colorado, tossed the pigskin around with 9-year-old son Jack before Saturday’s kickoff.

“You run out to the outside,” Brady tells Jack, his son with ex Bridget Moynahan, in a video he posted to Facebook with the hashtag #bradytobrady #love.

Feeding Frenzy! Ivanka Trump Shares Adorable Video of Theo’s First Food Tasting

Instagram

Feeding time is a family affair for Ivanka Trump.

In a sweet video posted to her Instagram account, Trump, 34, and her husband Jared Kushner, 35, gave their 6-month-old son Theodore James his first taste of real food — with some help from Theo’s big brother Joseph Frederick, 3 next month, and sister Arabella Rose, 5.

“The whole family feeding Theodore his first ever spoonfuls of food — apple sauce!” she wrote. “I cannot believe how big he is getting! #Milestone #solids.”

In the video, the entire family shares words of encouragement to baby Theo.

“Ready, Theodore? Here you go,” Kushner says as he puts a spoonful of applesauce in his baby’s mouth. “Try this Theodore. That’s very yummy.”

Then, Trump chimes in with some information about the homemade sauce.

“Is it apples we just picked from the orchard?” she says, as Arabella tries to show her baby brother the tricks of the trade, telling him, “Open! Ah! Ah!”

“Arabella and Joseph picked them off the trees,” Trump adds.

Earlier in the day, Trump posted a photo of her family’s apple-picking progress. “One of our favorite fall traditions — apple picking in New Jersey,” the mother of three wrote in the post.

Instagram Photo

And both Mom and Dad — and even big brother Joseph — wanted to make sure Theo enjoyed his first real meal, frequently asking the baby, “Do you like it?”

“Is it too tart for him?” Kushner asks, as everyone awaits Theo’s reaction.

From raising her three children to consulting her father Donald Trump on his presidential campaign, Trump has kept herself busy these past few months.

“My life is chaotic right now,” Trump told PEOPLE earlier this summer. “I’m exhausted 90 percent of the time.”

“Being a mother is the most rewarding experience, but also the most wild and stressful.”

The mother-son duo is very close — so close, in fact, that they share a beauty routine, including bath time.

“I like having my baths, and he takes them with me,” the actress, who currently stars in the Fox series The Last Man on Earth, told PEOPLE in May.

“When we go to the barbershop, he gets to choose his own hairstyle, and he gets a kick out of that and he takes great pride in that,” the proud mama added at the time. “I may be over-grooming him. I don’t know!”

And according to his mom, Xander is exactly halfway to being able to achieve a big goal he’s had his eye on for at least a year.

“We read a lot of books about sharks and dinosaurs. He wants to go swimming with sharks with me, but I’ve told him he has to wait until he’s 10,” Jones told PEOPLE in 2015 of her then-4-year-old son.

Case closed: It’s a girl!

NCIS: Los Angeles star Daniela Ruah and David Olsen welcomed their second child, daughter Sierra Esther Ruah Olsen, on Sunday, Sept. 4, she announced Wednesday on Instagram.

“Apparently she thought Labor Day weekend meant LABOR day weekend… Look who showed up three weeks early! On Sept. 4th we welcomed little Miss Sierra Esther Ruah Olsen,” the actress captioned a family photo.

“She entered the world in her own way — breeched! I was a good candidate to deliver her naturally so I needed to find a doctor in L.A. who would know how to do it. Fortunately I found one of the few… Healthy & happy mommy & baby walked out of the hospital 24hrs later. I had an OB and doula assisted birth at Cedars-Sinai, and the #love and #support of my wonderful #hubby This photo is the perfect representation of everything I’ve ever wanted.”

Ruah – who broke her pregnancy news on the social media app in April – and Olsen also share son River Isaac, 2½.

The happy parents met on the set of NCIS: Los Angeles, on which the 32-year-old plays Special Agent Kensi Blye. Olsen, a former Navy SEAL, has acted as his younger brother Eric Christian Olsen‘s stunt double in the past. Eric’s own wife, Sarah Wright Olsen, also gave birth to a baby girl this summer. The couple welcomed Esmé Olivia on Aug. 9.

My Best Advice: Moms Share the Tips They Wish They Knew Before Kids

Ruah’s pregnancy comes after heartbreak: she experienced a miscarriage last October at nine weeks along.

“Something like that hits you physically, emotionally and psychologically, but my doctor said, ‘Even if you sat on my table the whole time, this still would’ve happened. You have to try again,’ ” Ruah told Fit Pregnancy and Baby for the magazine’s September cover story.

That “second try,” was when the pair conceived their little girl.

She said, “Nature is a beautiful thing — it does what it needs to do when it needs to do it.”

At 7:06 p.m. on May 24, I held my son, Hayden, for the first time.

Those first few days together in the hospital were priceless. I’ll never forget my husband sleeping on the cot (or trying to) while our son slept on my chest. The room was quiet, minus the sounds of the monitors. Time stood still. It was an incredibly special moment I have waited years to experience.

My husband Joel and I were both running on adrenaline, and I had a surge of hormones that kept me going in the hospital. My family made it just in time for the delivery; my parents held their first grandchild moments after he arrived. Looking back on that time, it was magical.

Then … the hospital sent this angelic being home with us. Reality set in, followed by exhaustion. Add trying to breastfeed on demand and hormonal roller coasters.

Later on, Joel — who served in the US Army — jokingly said that instead of saying, “Congratulations on your newborn,” someone should have said, “Welcome to boot camp. Meet your drill sergeant, Hayden. He will break you down and test those vows of ‘For better or for worse.’ He will innocently find the worst parts of you and drag them out, only to slowly rebuild you into something, hopefully, better: a parent.”

I’m in the “slowly rebuilding” phase. I still can’t believe I get the privilege of being Hayden’s mother … and I’m learning every day how to get better at it. I have some perspective now, and can tell I’m out of the “baby blues” fog.

Does anyone else wanna rename the term “baby blues?” Can we all just petition to do that now? It has such a negative connotation for me. I never wanted to use that expression.

The truth is, I couldn’t have been more grateful and ecstatic to have this little peanut. I want to protect this precious baby with my life. The first couple months, this translated into worry and anxiety, coupled with a decent dose of emotion. My mother stayed with us for the first two weeks, then came out again the week I briefly went back to taping a show. The morning she left, I cried. For a long time. There were other days my husband would come in the room when the baby was crying, ask if he was hungry, and I got upset. I thought he was calling me a bad mom.

More from Ashley’s PEOPLE.com blog series:

I started to realize that although I was operating from an emotional perspective, my husband wasn’t. He was operating almost entirely on the opposite side of the spectrum. For him, if the baby was fussing, he deduced the problem in a logical, mathematical way and wanted to fix it. He didn’t understand why I took things so personally.

But everything was magnified! Life didn’t happen on any normal levels. Plus, I felt like I wasn’t a good mother if I wasn’t emanating sheer bliss all the time. I felt like happiness personified when I looked at our son, but was it okay to feel all the other things too?

Come to find out, 70 to 80 percent of women go through this phase of “the blues.” Why don’t more women talk about this? Maybe they do and I just didn’t register it? And I knew anxiety was a real thing, but did anyone else experience feeling indecisive? It started before giving birth, and magnified postpartum.

I didn’t decide on storing cord blood until the final hour on the way to the hospital. Thank goodness PacifiCord was willing to help me — they delivered the cord-blood-storing kit to the hospital! I am still so grateful. It’s one way I can be proactive about protecting him any way I can.

I look back at the last two months and realize I might have made life harder than necessary. I put a pretty big expectation on myself to have it all together. I expected to be able to breastfeed all day and night (no sleep), keep the house clean, have dinner on the table for the family (takeout), work out, go back to work, etc. etc. How many of you felt this way?

My stepson, Huck, is learning new words right now. He learned the combination of disaster and catastrophe is “disatrophe.” When life doesn’t go his way and his little brain gets frustrated, he jokingly proclaims it is a disatrophe! I started to feel his pain! For a period of time there, I tried to do too much and some moments seemed like a mini disatrophe in my mind. I believe we can have it all, just not all at once.

So, I’m letting those expectations go. When I look at Hayden, nothing else matters anyway.

If I could tell expecting first-time moms one thing, it’d be this: Go easy on yourself. Please. Because one day, you will wake up and life WILL seem somewhat normal again — a “new normal,” as they say. You’ll still be overwhelmed and emotional at times, but you’ll learn to accept things on your own terms, and the joy will outweigh everything.

Plus, you won’t believe when eight weeks have gone by … then 10. You’ll graduate from saying “weeks” and start using months. And you’ll start realizing what Joel and I are learning right now: That the days and nights are long, but the months (and years) are short. So very short.

This morning, I peeked at my body in the mirror as I hurried out of the shower back to the baby. Since I’m looking in the mirror, I don’t see my stepson’s new mini truck on the floor, and I trip.

Literally lying on the floor in a towel, I wonder if I’ll ever have a flat stomach again … well, at first I wonder if my back went out and if I can even get up to get the baby, then I move on to vanity.

The positive part of the story? I laughed at the potential #disatrophe. Some days are longer than others …

These first months have been phenomenal. And challenging. I’ve said many times now, “I’ve never been this happily tired in my life.”

And just when it seems like I can’t sleepwalk through life another day, Hayden giggles after his morning stretch. Lo and behold, he slept over five glorious, continuous hours! The light at the end of the tunnel becomes brighter, and I find myself relearning one of the great lessons in life: This, too, shall pass.

The hardest moments I fear will last forever, but they don’t, so I breathe. And the greatest moments I want to last forever, but they don’t, so I relish them. Because I’m going to miss all of this.

“It’s so sweet: We wake up holding each other’s hands,” she told PEOPLE in May of her only son. “I can’t let that go. He’s so special to me.”
