Just five months after giving birth to daughter Hattie Margaret, Tori  Spelling is pregnant with her fourth child, she announced on her website Friday.

“Dean, Liam, Stella, Hattie, and I   are beyond thrilled to announce that another little McDermott is on the  way! We  feel truly blessed that another angel has found us. Love, Tori xoxo,” read the  announcement, which was accompanied by a pic of Spelling’s burgeoning  bump.

The baby-to-be will join Hattie (who was born in October 2011), brother Liam,  5, and sister Stella, 3, the actress and reality star’s children with husband Dean McDermott. Spelling, 38, wed Canadian-born actor  McDermott, 45, back in May 2006.

While carrying Hattie last year, the Beverly Hills, 90210 alum  dispelled any notions that pregnancy gets any easier the second or third time  around.

“People always think the first one was the hardest. But I’m like, ‘No the  first one was easy for me because I could lay around all day. I didn’t have two  little ones to take care of,’” Spelling has said. “This is the hardest one  because I’m always going with the kids.”

Heidi Klum & Seal Split

This past weekend Heidi Klum and Seal officially announced their split in a statement.

“While we have enjoyed seven very loving, loyal and happy years of marriage, after much soul-searching we have decided to separate,” the couple say in a statement. “We have had the deepest respect for one another throughout our relationship and continue to love each other very much, but we have grown apart. This is an amicable process and protecting the well-being of our children remains our top priority, especially during this time of transition.”

Even though celebrity divorces hardly ever come as a shock and aren’t rare, it had seemed as if the the two of them had beaten the odds. They seemed so in love to the public eye, and even renewed their vows yearly. They both had an “in love” glow about them.

Seal had stated a while ago that the supermodel was “the one” and in return in an interview at a different time she stated that she didn’t know how she got so lucky.

The now split couple has 3 children together, Henry,6, Johan,5, and Lou,2. Heidi was pregnant with her ex’s child when Seal met and fell in love with her. Last year he officially adopted Heidi’s oldest child Leni, now 7, and considers her one of his own. He has always been in Leni’s life starting with being present at her birth/.

I hope that they will be able to make this as easy for children as possible. Best of luck to the whole family in this hard time.

Gwen Stefani’s children’s clothing @ Target

 Gwen Stefani is one of the most unique and stylish celebrities out there. She has a style all of her own, she doesn ‘t try to be anyone but herself and she owns her look. She beams with confidence and many girl’s look up to her for style as well as a role model. Everything she does and creates is stylish and when it comes to dressing her kids she doesn’t fall short. Even her kids are taking after their hot mama with their own style.

This past July, the singer released an announcement stating that she would be doing a collaboration with Target for Harajuku Mini. She wanted to offer something different than what Target was typically offering. More of on the edge of cutting fashion for kids. According to Dailymail.co.uk she said this at the launch party…

‘I’ve always wanted to do a cool children’s fashion line inspired by the super-cute and playful kids’ clothing you find in Japan,’ she said.

‘The whole idea is about being creative, expressing your own individuality and having fun getting dressed.’

She added that she had been given scope by Target to break from the typical childrenswear offering and do something different.

‘Target has given me the creative freedom to design kid’s clothing that is different than most anything you usually see out there with great quality, attention to detail and most of all, available at amazing prices,’ she said.

On Nov. 13 2011 Target stocked their stores with her line. The collection is  for kids aged 1 to 13 andranges from  $3.99 to $29.99.
This is one of the hottest collaborations since Missoni and I’m sure it won’t be the last. Target is known for getting hot designers and celebs to create for them on a real life budget. Not everyone can afford expensive designer clothes but with collaborations we are allowed to get designer pieces at a lower cost!

he collection is high on fun, with ballerina-style tutus, polka dots and fuzzy hoodies complete with animal ears and slogans such as ‘Hazard’, ‘Love Makes Me Cute’ and ‘I Am A Monster’.

Like much of the singer’s fashion merchandise, motifs are Japanese-inspired, though elements such as tartan, skinny jeans and chequered flag-inspired trims lend a punk-style aesthetic that is rarely present in childrenswear.

Those worried that it will sell out as quickly as the Missoni line, will be reassured to know that the star is also working on a follow-up collection, due to hit stores in January.”

I am definitely going to be going to Target to check her line out for my kids and you should too!

Are you a Black Friday shopper?

Thanksgiving is fast approaching and will soon be over followed by BLACK FRIDAY.  People will wait in line for a a huge amount of time in the freezing cold just to grab that one hot item. Toys and gadgets will be flying off the shelves while people rush through the department store doors grabbing everything in sight. Carts will be filled to the top and people won’t be able to see over them. True story…I witnessed it last year with my own eyes. My mother and I were the very first people in line for Toys R Us on Black Friday last year. We waited in line for hours as soon as we finished our Thanksgiving dinner and waited in the freezing cold with Starbucks all for a Zhu Zhu pet, which was the hottest toy last season. My son loved it but then they shortly became a dud because they stopped working. You live and you learn. This year I will not be going after the hottest toy!

I have a feeling that the Animal Planet Air Swimmer extreme radio controlled giant shark and clown fish will be making a splash this season. I know my son was already jumping for joy at the commercial. Not sure if I will be purchasing it because let’s face it, it’s just a balloon with helium and can be popped very easily and has to be aired up continually with a helium tank. The fish balloon has a price tag of 49.99 in store and 39.99 online. I hope my son won’t be dissapointed. He is a 5 year old boy who I’m 100% sure he’d love it so much he’d pop it and have a broken heart.

K-mart recently came out with their Top Fab 15 toys for Christmas 2011…Let’s check them out!

1. Sesame Street Let’s Rock Elmo

2.FIJIT Friends Interactive Toy

3. ProTunes I Am T-Pain mic

4. Barbie Designable Hair Extension Doll

5. Wowwee Lite Sprite Wand with Prisma Sprite and Pod

6. Redakai Championship Tin with Cards

7. Fur Real Friends Cookie Puppy

8. Nerf Vortex Nitron Blaster

9. Mini LaLaLoopsy Treehouse Playset

10. WWE Colossal Crashdown Arena Playset

11. Transformers: Dark of the Moon- Ultimate Optimus Prime

12. LeapFrog- LeapPad Explorer Learning Tablet

13. Laser Stunt Chaser Dragonfire RC Car

14. Simon Flash

15. Dora Fiesta Favorites Kitchen

Let the shopping begin! Better to get it done early than having to fight the crowds and madness this season. If you are brave enough to go out on Black Friday, get ready because it’s next Friday!! Have fun and don’t forget to dress warm and find something for yourself! You deserve it!

Hollywood kids: too much, too soon?-Life&Style

While most kids across the country went back to school after the long summer break, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes‘ daughter, Suri, instead flew across the country to attend New York Fashion Week! On Sept. 9, Suri was wearing a Phillip Lim miniskirt and dark-red lipstick and missing her second day of kindergarten at New Village Leadership Academy in LA!

“Because Suri is being raised a Scientologist, both Katie and Tom have to treat her like an adult,” a former employee of the couple reveals to Life & Style. “There’s no coddling, and they never tell her anything — they ask. So when she wants to wear her Cinderella costume to bed, she gets to. When she demands a manicure at 9 p.m., she gets it.” And that includes treats for breakfast!

In fact, Katie called in a “cupcake emergency” on Aug. 19, picking up four dozen of the Sprinkles goodies. “When Suri wants a cupcake at 10 a.m., she gets one,” a former Cruise staffer reveals to Life & Style.

Suri’s just among those tots in tinseltown that live an over-the-top lifestyle. Shiloh and her siblings are traveling the globe, Madonna‘s daughter has her own credit card with a $10,000 limit and the tiniest tot, Rachel Zoe‘s 6-month-old son, Skyler Berman, already has a pair of $3,700 shoes!

Read more about how A-list mom’s try to maintain a balanced lifestyle for their kids plus Hollywood’s moms talk to Life & Style and experts weigh in all in this week’s issue of Life & Style, on newsstands now.

What are your thoughts on this matter? Everyone has a different style of parenting but do you agree with this?
