Jenna shared a series of photos to celebrate her boyfriend’s birthday.

She couldn’t help but gush about her man in the adorable tribute. “The world became a better place the day you were born…Your strength, gentleness, humor and caring beautiful soul touches everyone who knows you,” she wrote.

“I am the luckiest girl in the world to love you and be loved by you. Happy birthday @stevekazee! (You’re going to kill me for the last shot sorrrrry)”

Steve responded to the message with a sweet message, “Thank you for being my baby mama!! Best gift ever.”

"In less than two weeks the pros go back. The professionals do all the professional routines. So we have a month where we go in every day to learn a new dance and then we meet the celebrities. When I find out who my celebrity is, it's legit on camera and on TV, so it's very exciting."

Big changes are afoot on this years' show, with new judge Motsi Mabuse revealed just the other day. Motsi is the older sister of Strictly pro Oti Mabuse, and is taking over from Dame Darcey Bussell.

"I am absolutely overjoyed to be joining the Strictly judging panel," she said. "I have so much respect and admiration for the other three judges and hope to add my own bit of sparkle to the show. I can't wait to get started."

Former champion Ore Oduba, who lifted the Glitterball Trophy in the 2016 series with Joanne Clifton, spoke of the difficulties Darcey’s replacement Motsi will face:

“I think whoever they choose is someone who has that wealth of knowledge. These pros know what they’re talking about.

“You see them getting judged, it’s a very difficult world if you’re laying judgment on people who know more than you," he continued. “But all the pros respect each other."

Let's be honest all women are excellent multitaskers. You just never know when you'll need to do the makeup on the train while prepping for that early-morning meeting, grab lunch while doing two conference calls or WhatsApp while binge-watching Netflix (it's harder than it looks tbh) – you constantly need to be adaptable and as we know, be prepared for the unexpectedness that a hectic life brings.. 

Katie Piper, author, advocate and now Strictly star, is a woman who knows all about this.

The mum-of-two took to Instagram to reveal that she had been up since 5am with her youngest daughter Penelope.

In the utterly adorable post, in which she lovingly cradles her second child, she wrote: "After a 5am start someone has fallen back to sleep, my little Pea."

Despite the fact that she managed to get her to nod off in her arms, Piper lamented that she was still wearing her Strictly tan from Saturday night's first live show but said she'd no time to worry as she had to go to Sainsbury's anyhow.

"On a side note I wonder if this spray tan is going to look out of place when I go to Sainsbury’s later!" she added. 

How many of us have not even thought about a mirror before the weekly shop? Hungry kids (or, hangry feelings, generally) = priorities.  

Piper is no doubt, still on a high after the first Strictly show of its 16th season kicked off on Saturday – she performed a beautiful waltz with partner Gorka – but many fans thought that she had been under-marked, with judge Bruno advising her to relax more as he felt nerves may have impacted her performance. 

She penned an emotive post, thanking fans for their support, and her dancing partner for his patience.  

How STUNNING did she look on the night?

"You did it my darling, you did all the steps, you got to the end and it looked good. Now relax and don't overthink it. Don't worry about it too much, let him guide you because you can dance," Bruno said. 

This is one mum who should feel immensely proud – spray tan and all!

It's safe to say that the Kardashians were blessed in the genetics department so it's no surprise that all the children of the clan are seriously cute.

Kim Kardashian West may be fond of a selfie (or 10!) but her Instagram is also littered with adorable pictures of her kids. She's mum to five-year-old daughter North, 9-month-old Chicago and two-year-old son Saint, and though it only feels like yesterday that Kim announced the birth of her only son, time really is flying as her latest photo proves. Saint West is growing up so fast!

The mum-of-three shared a picture with her 116 million Instagram followers showing Saint playing on the beach. And how adorable does he look?! In the snap, the little boy is seen smiling and wearing dark swimming shorts.

Kardashian admitted that even though Saint is 'big brother' to his two sisters, that North found it easier to bond with her new sister than her brother.

"[North] does not share with Saint, she does not hardly talk to Saint,” Kim revealed in an interview on Ellen earlier this year, but added that her son wasn't phased and also doted on 'baby Chi.'

He’s nicer than North, I will say that, ” she added. “He loves his little sister, he’s so sweet with her."

Since having daughter True four months ago, Khloe Kardashian has kept fairly out of the limelight, wanting to enjoy this happy time with her daughter away from the media glare.

The run up to True's birth was also a difficult time for the new mum, whose personal relationship with partner Tristan Thompson was subject to huge attention. The reality star released no statement at the time, but had much support from her sisters as she prepared to welcome her daughter to the world.

Thankfully, much of that dust seems to have settled and Khloé and Thompson are enjoying their first holiday together as a now family of three.

The couple embarked on their trip and have since kept busy sharing photos of their adventures on what appears to be a tropical island.

In photos shared to Khloe's Instagram Story, the adorable tot is pictured in a pink sun hat and she also enjoyed her very first swimming lesson.

How adorable is that?!

And even her proud pop was impressed by his daughter's style; True modelled a pink sun hat (so much style already) while her dad cooed over her.

The couple appeared in other videos on the photo-sharing app looking very loved up, taking in the sights and wildlife, while also enjoying the quality time together.

 

A post shared by Khloé (@khloekardashian) on

And even though she's enjoying some downtime, Khloé recently revealed she felt anxious at the thought of leaving her daughter to return to work.

“I don’t know how I’m going to leave her all day tomorrow. That’s freaking me out. But I got to go back to work at some point. I'm anxious to leave True but also eager to get back to work now that I have a new push and motivation. It's not just for me anymore."

Congratulations are reportedly in order for the 'Bleeding Love' singer and her boyfriend Denis Jauch.

Leona took to her Instagram stories to show off her rumoured engagement ring.

Looking divine the singer sported a long skirt and bralet on holiday in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Which would be the perfect place to the pop the question, however the 33-year-old is yet to confirm the news.

They did celebrate their anniversary on August 1 in the capital city.

 

A post shared by Dennis Jauch (@dennisjauch) on

Denis paid tribute to Leona to mark the special occasion, saying:

"It's been the most beautiful 8 years of my life with this incredible human being. Here's to many more beautiful memories. [heart]"

The happy couple have previously spoke of marriage in 2013, three years after Leona and Denis got together.

 

A post shared by Dennis Jauch (@dennisjauch) on

Leona spoke to the Metro about her future desire to get hitched. 

"Things with Dennis are going really good. We haven’t talked about marriage yet. It is something I want to do at some point. I did want to get married in my 20s."

However, she continued to explain that as crunched time looked in her 20s, she was far from ready to tie the knot. 

"I was always like, "I am going to get married in my 20s!’ But now I’m like ‘No, no, no. I’m not ready!" 

"I feel like you think you are going to be ready but then you get to your late 20s and you’re not ready" she added.

Leona's incredible bod is down to a strict regime that the singer has embarked on over the past year.

Spilling her secrets to her transformation the former X-Factor winner told Women's Health just how she achieved her figure.

"I do four hour-long workouts per week – everything from SoulCycle to hiking with my dog," she revealed to the publication.

Along with the exercise, the star eats a vegetarian diet and has a healthy balance with the treat cabinet. 

So – eating healthy and exercise, not much of a revelation but it's always a easier said than done.

Demi Lovato has always been open and honest about her struggle with addiction.

Recently, the singer was hospitalised with a suspected overdose.

The 25-year-old was found unconscious at her home in the Hollywood Hills at 11 am on Tuesday, July 24.

In true Demi style, the singer has penned a candid letter, bravely opening up about her latest battle with addiction.

 

A post shared by Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) on

In light of the event, Demi took to Instagram to share her first statement since the incident. 

The superstar began the letter about the realities of fighting the illness, that there is no simple fix to make it vanish.

"I have always been transparent about my journey with addiction. What I've learned is that this illness is not something that disappears or fades with time. It is something I must continue to overcome and have not done yet."

 

A post shared by Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) on

Demi went on to "thank God" that she's alive and well, whilst extending her thanks to all her fans who have offered endless support and love over the last week.

"Your positive thoughts and prayers have helped me navigate through this difficult time," she added.

 

A post shared by Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) on

The singer soon turned her attention to those closest to her and the staff, who she reckons without she wouldn't "be here writing this letter."

Understandably, Demi finished the statement by explaining that her focus will now be on getting better and she is looking forward to the future with the possibility of being 'on the other side.'  

"I now need time to heal and focus on my sobriety and road to recovery. The love you have all shown me will never be forgotten and I look forward to the day where I can say I came out on the other side."

"I will keep fighting," she added.

 

A post shared by Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) on

Her transparency around her battle with addiction is truly admirable.

Demi's bravery and strength are shown throughout the letter and we are sure this attitude will help her on the road to recovery. 

We are wishing her a speedy recovery and hope to see her fighting fit once again.

Chrissy Teigen, social media queen and recent mum to her second child is serving up yet another brilliant dose of parenting relatability in her latest Instagram post.

This weekend, Chrissy shared a photo of herself breastfeeding. But it wasn't just seven-week-old son Miles she had to contend with feeding, because Chrissy has a baby on each breast

How we love you Chrissy.

The other baby? One of Luna's dolls, because Chrissy is that kind of mum. The hands-on, multi-tasking mum (basically, ALL mums) who ensures her daughter doesn't feel left out of the attention her baby brother will receive.

 

Luna making me feed her babydoll so I guess I have twins now

A post shared by chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) on

"Luna making me feed her babydoll so I guess I have twins now," Chrissy captioned the photo.

But more than just #ParentingGoals, the behaviour that Luna is displaying here is actually an important developmental milestone.   The Mayo Clinic recommends parents give kids Luna's age a doll when a new baby brother or sister enters the picture "so that he or she can be a caregiver, too".  And even though Luna isn't the one 'feeding' the baby here, studies suggest that toddlers of a similar age "were interested in 'real-world' materials and wanted to use those materials rather than toy items," and that "[If] They were able to distinguish between play and real materials, and they would choose the real items."

Most of her fans identified with the snap -and thanked her for continuing to use her huge social media following to normalise breastfeeding, but for those that took issue with it, she had this to say:

We couldn't agree more!

Today is the day folks. 

Irish people are taking to the polls, to vote on whether or not the archaic 8th amendment should be repealed. 

We have watched heartwarming videos of people returning home, we have listened to brave women share their stories, and we have shed a tear on occasion.

One thing that really struck me (and made me extremely emotional) is the attention the referendum is getting aboard – particularly among celebs.

There's something incredible about seeing people you admire taking to their social media to support a cause relevant to your future, and the future of all Irish women.

Here are just a few of the amazing celebrities who are supporting a change to the 8th amendment – because it's about bloody time!

It has been reported that Pippa Middleton is expecting her first child. The Sunday Express stated that The Duchess of Cambridge's sister has recently shared the joyous news with her family and friends.

A source told the Sunday Express, "When Pippa found out she was pregnant, she was obviously thrilled and utterly overjoyed."

Kate was the second person to find out about her sister's pregnancy. The source said that the soon to be mum-of-three "could not have been more delighted" for her younger sister.

“Naturally, big sister Kate and parents, Carole and Michael, were the first people she told — James aside — and they could not have been more delighted," they added.

Pippa and James tied the knot in the May of 2017. The source said that the couple have always wanted to have children, "They have made the most of their first few months of marriage and felt the time was right to expand their family.”

It is understood that Pippa will welcome her first child in the autumn time.

Huge congratulations to Pippa and James!

Earlier this year, 47 celebrities were told by the Federal Trade Commission that they needed to maintain a higher level of transparency when it comes to who is paying for those #spon Instagram posts.

However, following on from this controversy, a new report has claimed that a massive 93 per cent of celebrity social endorsements from the past month actually violate FTC guidelines.

Any Instagram post that acts as an advertisement must feature #ad or #sponsored somewhere in the caption that is plain to see – i.e not at the very end so that Instagram cuts it off.

The FTC also insist that tagging the brand or company that has paid for the post does not count as proper disclosure.

According to Cosmopolitan, the study, carried out by MediaKix, looked at Instagram's top 50 celebrity and influencer accounts and found that just 7 per cent of 2,200 posts were with compliant FTC regulations.

Instagrammers who are involved in long-term partnerships with brands are also expected to abide by the same rules.

Many of the celebs who were originally contacted by the FTC have since deleted the posts in question, however, as a result of the controversy, Instagram will now add a new “paid partnership with” sub-header (much like the example above) to sponsored post and stories in order to avoid any further confusion.
