Blue Ivy Carter Is a Whole Entire #Mood in Family’s European Yacht Vacation Photos

Beyoncé and JAY-Z are pretty guarded when it comes to showing off their kids, so whenever they do, it’s kinda like a big deal.

Earlier this week, Beyoncé uploaded a slew of photos showing the Carters living their best lives on a luxury yacht they chartered for a vacation in Europe following the conclusion of the European leg of her “On The Run II Tour” with husband JAY-Z.

Most of the photos were of Bey and Jay, but we were also treated to rare photos of the couple’s year-old twins Sir and Rumi Carter, as well as new pics of 6-year-old Blue Ivy Carter, who was pretty much #VacationGoals throughout the whole trip.

One photo shows her standing in a mini-pool and looking completely unbothered while wearing a black and white ruffled swimsuit (which probably costs more than your rent) and a pair of chic sunglasses with a refreshing orange-colored beverage in her hand, looking like a mini-Yoncé.

Another photo shows her wearing an adorable zigzag-patterned two-piece bikini she matched with a statement necklace, straw hat and pink shirt, again with a pair of sunglasses.

She can also be seen meditating with Beyoncé in other photos, and spending time with mom and grandma Tina Lawson in other photos. One pic shows Bey and Blue wearing matching pink outfits.

Twitter immediately took notice of Blue Ivy’s worry-free European yacht vacation.

Welp, Here They Are! The FIRST PHOTOS of Drake’s Newborn Son Adonis!

Newly released photos show Drake’s infant son Adonis.

Thanks to the release of Drake’s latest album Scorpion, the mystery behind whether Drake was hiding a child has officially been solved. In not just one, not two, but THREE songs from the project, Drake confirms that yes, he IS the father of Baby Adonis, and even though he doesn’t outright mention neither Adonis nor his former porn star baby mama Sophie Brussaux’s name, we know exactly who he’s talking about.

In “Emotionless”—a song featured on the “A Side” of Scorpion, Drake raps, “I wasn’t hidin’ my kid from the world/I was hidin’ the world from my kid/From empty souls who just wake up and looked to debate/Until you starin’ at your seed, you can never relate.”

He adds, “Breakin’ news in my life, I don’t run to the blogs/The only ones I wanna tell are the ones I can call/They always ask, ‘Why let the story run if it’s false?’ You know a wise man once said nothin’ at all.”

Drake is basically saying that by not revealing that he has a son, he was protecting Adonis from the scrutiny from the world that comes along with being the lovechild of the biggest rapper alive. He also explains why he never confirmed set the record straight on the reports that he denied the child and was a deadbeat father, which were perpetuated by Pusha T’s “Story of Adidon” diss track.

Drizzy also addresses his relationship with his now 8-month-old son Adonis’ mother by referencing Michael Jackson’s hit “Billie Jean” in the song “March 14″—which is the last track on the album and is featured on the “B Side.”

“She’s not my lover like Billie Jean but the kid is mine / Sandi used to tell me all it takes is one time, and all it took was one time / Sh**, we only met two times, two times,” he raps. Here, he’s saying that his mother, Sandi Graham, warned him that it only took one instance of unprotected sex to make a baby, and in his case, it was two.

He continues, “Now it’s rough times, I’m out here on front lines / Just tryin’ to make sure that I see him sometimes / It’s breakin’ my spirit / Single father, I hate when I hear it / I used to challenge my parents on every album / Now I’m embarrassed to tell them I ended up as a co-parent / Always promised the family unit / I wanted it to be different because I’ve been through it.”

Drake’s saying that he always wanted to have a family, but because he grew up in a single-parent household, he’s never wanted that for his children. Instead, he wanted to do things the so-called “right way” by fathering children with his wife. He also talks about how his busy schedule doesn’t allow him to see his son as much as he would like.

On “March 14,” Drake confirms that Adonis was born on October 11th, just two weeks before his own birthday on October 24th, and he says he celebrated in Miami when the DNA test confirmed that he was the boy’s father on March 14th, hence the track’s title.

Drake also reveals that he while he rushed out and bought a crib for his son, he’s only met him once at Christmas time, confirming reports that he flew Adonis and Sophia out via private jet for the Holidays last year. “I only met you one time, introduced you to Saint Nick / I think he musta brought you like 20 gifts / Your mother say you growin’ so fast that they don’t even really fit / But man, you know / I still had to get it for my boy though.”

The rapper goes on to say that he’s looking forward to another visit and he hopes that his relationship with Sophie improves: “They said that in two weeks you’re supposed to come in town / Hopefully by the time you hear this / Me and your mother will have come around/Instead of always cuttin’ each other down.”

Drake addresses the topic for a third time on the track “8 Out of 10,” which is also what fans believe is a direct response to the Pusha T diss track: “The only deadbeats is whatever beats I been rappin’ to,”he raps, followed by “Never a matter of ‘could I?’ or ‘should I?’ / Kiss my son on the forehead then kiss your ass goodbye.”

The song concludes with audio from a viral Plies video in which the rapper talks about refusing to argue with people: “I can’t argue wit you. You mad … I don’t get paid to argue with you… who is you? You ain’t nobody. You mad!”

Who knows whether Drake would have even mentioned Adonis if Pusha T hadn’t forced his hand, but the good thing is that Drake is definitely stepping up and at least trying to be a father to the kid.

That being said, there’s still a lot we don’t know about the child. Hell, we don’t even know if his name is really Adonis, but thanks to some new photos shared online, we do have a first glimpse at what Drake’s firstborn looks like.

Though Sophie has declined to show off her child to the rest of the world, the internet will always internet and pull out those receipts. The photos posted here don’t reveal a whole lot, but it’s the only real first look we have of Adonis and shows more of his face than the original photos Sophie posted on her Instagram.

It looks like these photos were taken shortly after Sophie gave birth, as she can be seen wearing a hospital bracelet in one of the pics. Adonis is now 8 months old and probably looks very different.

“He Left Us a Final Gift”

Even though XXXTentacion is no longer with us, it looks like he’s leaving a piece of himself behind.

Just three days after the “SAD!” rapper was murdered in South Florida, his mom revealed some big news via Instagram that will surely have XXX’s fans looking toward the future.

“He left us a gift,” Cleopatra Bernard captioned a photo of an ultrasound Thursday (Jun. 21), revealing that before his tragic death, the 20-year-old rapper was expecting a baby.

The date written on the sonogram reads April 23rd, 2018, and it was taken at 8 weeks, 3 days. By now, the mother should be about 16 weeks along. Bernard did not reveal who the mother of X’s rumored unborn child is.

Xanarchkitty, a stripper/female rapper from Ft. Lauderdale, who was friends with XXXTentacion, re-posted the ultrasound photo on her Instagram story, but quickly took it down after people started assuming she was the baby mama and posted this:

“What is wrong with you guys! I never said I was the mom I was simply sharing the sonogram and sending a blessing!! Whoever tried to make me look bad like I would ever create an assumption like that is awful!! Please stop sharing that! To anyone who was offended or thought something bad I’m sorry that is not true.”

XXXTentacion, whose real name was Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, was gunned down Monday (Jun. 18) outside a motorcycle dealership in Deerfield Beach, Florida in what police believe was an attempted robbery.

On Wednesday, the suspected shooter, Dedrick D. Williams, was arrested and charged with first-degree murder. Williams appeared in court Thursday to be formally charged and was denied bond. Police said they have warrants issued for two more suspects.

According to the XXX’s lawyers, the rapper was on “modified house arrest,” and was awaiting trial for multiple charges including domestic battery by strangulation, aggravated battery and false imprisonment of a pregnant woman.

His ex-girlfriend Geneva Ayala, who accused him of the abuse, and is NOT the woman currently carrying his alleged unborn child, tweeted about how upset she was after his death.

“It’s disgusting that people are speaking for me. I don’t care if no one cared about me however many months ago, I didn’t lose my life. He did. It’s permanent,” she said. “I’m still here. Like how do you think that makes me feel? Everyone expecting me to be relieved or happy?! No, I’m broken.”

In January 2017, Ayala accused XXX of domestic violence in a lengthy testimony, including an allegation of slapping her so hard “you hear ringing.” She also claimed he threatened to vaginally penetrate her with either a barbecue fork or a barbecue brush.

She said in her testimony that once she became pregnant with his child, he punched and strangled her before leaving her alone in a room for two days. XXXTentacion denied Geneva’s allegations.

Anthony Bourdain’s Ex-Wife Ottavia Busia Shares Photo of “Strong and Brave” Daughter

Anthony Bourdain’s ex-wife Ottavia Busia shared a photo of their daughter Ariane, calling the 11-year-old “so strong and brave” just days after the celebrity chef’s suicide.

Busia posted the photo on Instagram early Monday morning (Jun. 11) showing Ariane—wearing black and tall studded boots—holding a microphone while performing a concert at DROM music venue in Manhattan’s Alphabet City.

“Our little girl had her concert today. She was amazing. So strong and brave,” the proud mom captioned the pic. “She wore the boots you bought her. I hope you are having a good trip, wherever you are.”

Ariane is Bourdain and Busia’s only child.

Bourdain and Busia—an Italian-born trained MMA fighter who studied the art of Brazilian jiu-jitsu—were married for nine years, between 2007 and 2016. They wed the week after Ariane’s birth.

He was dating Italian actress Asia Argento at the time of his death, though reports suggest they were estranged in his final days (either that or she was cheating on him with a French journalist).

Anthony Bourdain’s Daughter Ariane: Fast Facts & Photos

5Anthony Bourdain said that becoming a father changed his life.

Like many first-time dads, Anthony Bourdain said that having a child was a life-changing moment for him.

He said in his 2016 interview with The Takeout: “I guess my whole life, as much as I might have wanted a child for the reason that everybody wants one, I always recognized that at no point until I was 50 was I old enough or up to the job. I thought, you know what, I not only really want a child, but at this point, finally in my life, I think I’m up to the job and I’m the type of person who could do the job well and I’m financially prepared to look after a child.”

Bourdain said the realization that he was capable of caring for a child hit him like a “bolt of lightning.”

He mentioned in the interview that he wanted his daughter to experience all of his “treasured childhood memories” and described the overly elaborate manner in which he would plan meals for her.

“It’s almost an assault, at least for the first few years,” he said. “When we go on vacation, I would find myself, in a really over-organized way, becoming overly aggressive with the personal culinary history. I overloaded the poor thing with all the greatest hits of my most cherished childhood memories and dishes from the Jersey Shore and Cape Cod. I literally had a cycle menu for a poor little kid, and I have a fucking cycle menu up on the refrigerator. ‘Today will be steamers followed by boiled lobster and fresh corn on the cob and seasonal tomatoes! Tomorrow will be clam chowder.’”

Bourdain also said that he felt like it was “wrong, morally” and “annoying in general” to encourage a child to become a foodie, so he never tried to push exotic cuisines on her. “I never even suggested, ‘Hey baby it’s good, maybe you should try it.’ That never worked for me,” he said. However, to his surprise and delight, Ariane seemed to naturally have a refined palate, even at a very young age.

“When she was a very little girl if she wanted to eat pasta with butter every day that was fine with me, but what else was being eaten at the table was often very interesting… and she would often reach for a sardine or an anchovy. Some salty pecorino or even raw oysters, she was eating at age 3.”

Bourdain advised parents to never push foods on their children that they didn’t want to eat. “Never try to get your kid to eat anything she doesn’t already want to eat,” he said. “Just eat interesting stuff in front of her while completely ignoring her. Never, ever suggest ‘try it.’ Never say those dreaded words ‘try it, it’s good.’ Or worse, ‘It’s good for you.’ That’ll poison the well. Eat interesting foods in front of her. If he or she wants to eat grilled cheese, fine. Let them discover it on their own and it will be their own little triumph rather than something you convinced them to do.”

Ray J & Princess Love Share First Photos of Newborn Daughter Melody Love Norwood

Ray J and Princess Love welcomed their first child together, a beautiful baby girl named Melody Love Norwood, on Wednesday, May 23nd, 2018, and now the couple is showing off the first photos of their newborn daughter.

The Love & Hip Hop Hollywood stars released the photos of their daughter via OK! Magazine and Instagram.

“This was one of the most incredible experiences of my life,” Ray told OK! exclusively after Melody’s birth. “I’m so glad my daughter is finally here! And I can’t wait to begin life as a dad.”

According to OK!, Princess was in labor for 24 hours and the whole experience was captured by VH1 cameras for a future Love & Hip Hop Hollywood baby special to air this summer.

Check out the first photos of Baby Melody and her nursery below:

Months before Baby Melody made her big arrival, reports emerged that Ray J was cheating on his pregnant wife with another woman.

Princess Love shared a cryptic message on Instagram that read, “The problem is women think he will change, he won’t. And men make the mistake of thinking she will never leave, she will.” She captioned the photo: “Keep foolin the world but you can’t fool me anymore.”

She also shared a since-deleted tweet hinting at some behind-the-scenes drama: “If you’re going to stay with a man, do it because that’s what you truly want. Never stay because of children… When they grow up, then what???” She said in another now-deleted tweet: “To me, for better or worse doesn’t mean cheating.. that’s like saying stay with a man that beats you.”

Then, a video of Ray J in a hotel room surfaced and social media sleuths thought they saw a woman in the shower, which fueled the cheating speculation even further. There were also photos released showing Ray J without his wedding ring while out at a nightclub with friends.

Though many fans seemed to believe Ray J possibly cheated on Princess, there were a number of people who were convinced all of this was a publicity stunt for a storyline for the upcoming season of Love & Hip Hop Hollywood.

Publicity stunt or not, we hope that Ray and Princess have put all of this behind them (ESPECIALLY RAY) for the sake of their newborn daughter.
