Pippa O'Connor went from one of Ireland's most known models to a business woman in only a few years.

And she's a pretty successful business woman, too. In the last month alone, she has not only launched a new denim collection, Poco by Pippa, but also released a book, Simple Tips To Live Beautifully and debuted her new app for her blog.

With all of that under her belt, and two kids, we just don't know how she does it.

Speaking to VIP Magazine, Pippa believes that it's all about balance.

“I suppose I just try to have a good balance, which is tough. My idea of balance may be totally different to someone else’s. I try to take everything in my stride.

“I’ve a really good team around me and I take all the help I can get with the kids, I don’t try to be Superwoman, because it’s simply not possible,” she said.

The mum-of-two also revealed that 3-year-old Ollie absolutely loves his 5-month-old brother Louis, but she can't see herself with anymore children just yet.

“Ah he loves him! Like, he’s obsessed with him. I can’t even imagine having another one in the mix right now though, I’m very happy with what I have.

"We feel very lucky," she added.



Cute kids and adorable dogs will slay us any day of the week, but this scene in a dog shelter in the US is totally breaking our hearts.

Children aged between 6 and 14 are kneeling outside kennels of dogs who are shy and fearful and reading them their favourite books in hope to comfort the canines.

How sweet!

Reading to shelter dogs

Jo Klepacki, the director at the Humane Society in Missouri told The Dodo: "We wanted to help our shy and fearful dog[s] without forcing physical interaction with them to see the positive effect that could have on them."

The kids are asked to take a short course that helps them to read the body language of a dog and look out for signs of stress or nervousness. 

After they complete the course, the kids are then encouraged to soothe the pups through reading.

"Hearing a child reading can really calm those animals. It is incredible, the response we've seen in these dogs.

"What this is also doing is to bring the animals to the front in case potential adopters come through.

"They are more likely to get adopted if they are approaching and interacting, rather than hiding in the back or cowering."

We can't deal!



When it comes to Halloween costumes for small kids, toddlers and babies, there's not much you can work with.

Sure, pop on a pumpkin baby babygrow, or a tiny witches hat and everyone will swoon over them no matter what.

We have to say that Chrissy Teigen's tot did a good job of being a hotdog and a princess, but we kinda love this little kid even more.

Take a look at this adorableness:

He's a stickman! So simple but so brilliant, and it's definitely guaranteed some laughs.



Brad Pitt reportedly spent some time with his children last weekend.

It was the first time he saw any of his kids following his split from Angelina Jolie on September 19.

This comes just as it is claimed that the actor looks set to be cleared of any child abuse allegations.

According to The Mirror, Brad and Angie have reached an agreement and the FBI chiefs investigating Brad think there is no case.

"The Bureau's official position is they are still fact-gathering, though they are not calling it an investigation.

"Behind the scenes, we're told the case will go nowhere."

We hope the whole family are doing well.



He's known to have a string of high-profile girlfriends including Kendall Jenner and Taylor Swift, but it seems Harry Styles can't wait to settle down and find the right lady.

The One Direction star has given his first interview since going solo, and gave quite a bit a of info while doing so.

While speaking to Chelsea Handler, she asked: "Do you feel like you'll get married and have kids?"

The question obviously came out of the blue, and Harry just muttered: "I think so… probably."

But when he pondered it further, he replied with: "I can't wait for a time when that's a thing for me. I look forward to that in my life."

However, for those hopeful of a One Direction reunion soon, we wouldn't count our blessings just yet.

Harry's answer was very vague: "Maybe at some point everyone will want to do something again but it is better if it happens naturally."

What does that even mean!


While Katie Price’s parenting tactics are often scrutinised in the press, it’s not every day her former husband Peter Andre feels forced to discuss their parental debates in his personal column.

But it seems the famous pair’s opposing opinions on their kids’ use of social media is one topic which the Mysterious Girl singer feels particularly passionate about.

Speaking to new! magazine the father of three explained that while he has been “working with Katie” to co-parent 11-year-old Junior and nine-year-old Princess, he is totally opposed to his ex’s recent decision to create Instagram accounts for their kids.

Stressing that his discontent with the situation is grounded in fears over what his children could be exposed to online, the 43-year-old said: “I don't like kids having them because I think it opens them up to all sorts of issues, but as a parent you have to compromise with the other parent and try to work together.”

“Everyone knows I don't allow them to have phones or social media at my house, but I guess it doesn't necessarily mean to say I'm right,” he continued.

However after admitting that he has since given in to Katie’s decision on this occasion, Peter said he now just wants to “advise and encourage” Princess and Junior on their social media usage.

Last week Katie defended her decision to create Instagram accounts for both kids by claiming it was a way of furthering their careers.

The famous glamour model told the Loose Women panel: “I am no way a bad parent; I’ve got five beautiful, very well-mannered children.  My kids have been brought up in the industry, now they’re being booked for jobs themselves.”

“Social media is the future.  I won’t allow them on Snapchat, Facebook etc.  But all their friends are on Instagram.”

While her decision has been subject to huge criticism online, the 38-year-old Brighton native says she intends to monitor her children’s online activity as best she can.

After confirming their reunion in May of this year, Patrick Dempsey made his first red carpet appearance with his wife Jillian at the premiere of Bridget Jones’ Baby.

Jillian filed for divorce from the former Grey’s Anatomy star after 15 years of marriage in January of last year.

However by the end of the year the pair were rumoured to have reconciled.

In May, Patrick confirmed the rumours that he and the mother of his three children, Tallulah, 12 and seven-year-old twin sons Sullivan and Darby, had called off the divorce.

The pair held hands as they walked the red carpet with their three beautiful children.

Jillian looked stunning in a black strapless number and it was clear her husband thought so as well as he took to Instagram to say:

"My smoking hot wife at Bridget Jones London premiere."

We're delighted they're back together again!



When 50 Shades first came out, it's safe to say that your sister, granny and auntie all wanted a piece of it – much to your humiliation.

It's something that we couldn't help being interested in, but we're not so sure about Jamie Dornan showing it to his kids.

The father-of-two admitted that while he'll allow them to watch it, it won't be any time soon and they'll have to wait to grow up before even being shown the trailer of it.

"Certainly not for a bloody long time!" he told Entertainment Tonight.

He then continued: "If they wanted to watch that one day and see what daddy does, then that's cool.

"I am mindful that I have two children now. There is part of me that does want to do something they can watch soon – that is kind of lighthearted – because I don’t consider myself a dark or menacing person despite what I portray onscreen.

"I definitely want to have the opportunity to show other sides as well," he added.

If we were embarrassed when 50 Shades Darker fell out of our mum's handbag, then God can only imagine what his kids will feel like!



There is always a MASSIVE queue when new Yeezys become available that we're surprised everyone in Ireland doesn't have a pair already.

But now, your kids will be able to run around in Kanye's runners too because Yeezy Boost 350 for Infants are arriving to Ireland this summer.

Sole Collector previously reported that baby Yeezys will be available this August after a photo was leaked of the shoes being sold online – and now they have confirmed it!

According to the listing, baby Yeezys will be available in three colours – Pirate Black, Turtle Dove and Beluga.

Kanye's missus Kim previously shared a photo of her son Saint's new Turtle Dove coloured Yeezys on Easter Sunday, so it was only a matter of time before Kanye released them to the rest of the world.

So, if you have a little kiddy that would love these, you better start queuing (and saving) soon!



The lads and lassies over at Facts asked a bunch of kids their thoughts on dating, and let's just say their opinions are pretty hilarious.

As we all know dating can be a very difficult and confusing game, but these kids seems to have it all sorted.

From not calling your date "ugly," to making sure you ask for their last name, they truly spout out some pearls of wisdom.

Now sit back, relax and enjoy the relationship advice. 



She already has five children from three different fathers, but Katie Price doesn't want to stop having babies.

She even admitted today that she wants to make a reusable pregnancy test so she doesn't have to fork out cash whenever her period is late.

The 37-year-old joked about the imaginary equipment while appearing on Loose Women today.

"What I should invent is a pregnancy test that you can keep reusing, instead of paying ten pounds for a new one. I might stop having all them babies then."

However, despite her best efforts to remain coy about her joke, fellow host Andrea McLean couldn't help but say, "it's not the pregnancy test that you need… It's a condom, love."

Katie was clearly blushing but saved herself by admitting she wants more children.

"I'm going to keep going until the doctors say I can't have any more. I need that newborn again. I absolutely hate being pregnant. But I still want more," she said recently. 

Katie already has Harvey, 13 who she had with Dwight Yorke, Junior, 10 and Princess, seven, with ex-hubby Peter Andre and Jett, two, and Bunny, 19-months-old, who she has with her current partner Kieran Hayler. 


You'd be forgiven for having some post-Valentine's exhaustion today, given how many proposals, pictures of bouquets and #blessed statuses you had to wade through on Facebook over the weekend.

But before you swear off social media entirely, we insist you have a look at this gorgeous video from Westmeath mum Melanie Ní Beolláin, which is quickly going viral.

Melanie's son Brody wanted to share a little Valentine's love yesterday, and had his mam drop him over to his girlfriend's house with some gifts in tow.

Brody dropping off presents to his Valentine… Going to be such a gentleman

Posted by Melanie Ní Beolláin on Sunday, 14 February 2016

According to his proud mum, little Brody was "so nervous" before knocking on the door, despite being with his equally adorable girlfriend for "two years."

Since yesterday, Melanie's video has had almost 3,000 views and counting. We can see why, too – we challenge you not to watch Brody lean in for a cheeky hug without shedding a few tears of joy at your desk.

Happy (belated) Valentine's y'all.
