Kourtney Kardashian was massively unimpressed with recent criticism of her work ethic and parenting priorities.

The reality star posted photos from her recent trip to Idaho with her family, but some of the public questioned the holiday time, citing her laziness as reasoning for the harsh comments.

One follower (@kimdashianwest) commented; "Kourtney this is why people say you don't work girl," to which she sassily replied; 

"We all have our priorities. So I'll be making memories with my kids and amazing people while living my life to the absolute fullest… travel diary coming soon."

Kourtney's fans immediately came to her defence, with one commenting; "You are true mother goals. Memories with kids should always be a priority. Never change!"

Another responded: "I love that you invest in memories with your kids, family and friends and make that a priority. Keep going and doing!"

The Kardashians are frequently targeted for their supposed lack of work ethic over the last few years, which Kourtney especially hates;

"Who says I am not a working mom? Because I most definitely am. Working moms can be dedicated, of course," she wrote to her followers.

She added; "As women, we should be supporting each other for what allows us to be our best, not being so critical or judgmental of each other. We all do things our own way."

On episodes of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, mum-of-three Kourtney is often teased by sisters Kim and Khloe for not managing as many businesses as them.

Her latest lifestyle venture Poosh seems to be going from strength to strength with high-quality beauty collaborations and a massive social media following.

Pink has fiercely defended her children running through Berlin's Holocaust Memorial after she was criticised online for supposedly disrespecting the museum.

The Walk Me Home singer took to Instagram last night to share an image of her eight-year-old daughter Willow and two-year-old Jameson at the famous and eye-opening Memorial, and was faced with a barrage of angry replies.

Pink explained in her caption why it's important for her to capture her kids experiencing the famous landmark, despite others online thinking it was inappropriate parenting.

She wrote; "Berlin, I love you. #holocaustmemorial #panamarestaurant #cocktailclasses #history #herstory #worldtour."

The singer emphasised the fact that she's Jewish herself; "And for all of the comments; these two children are in actuality Jewish, as am I and the entirety of my mothers family."

"The very person who constructed this believed in children being children, and to me this is a celebration of life after death. Please keep your hatred and judgement to yourselves."

Back in 2017, The American architect who designed Berlin's Holocaust Memorial spoke out about how certain visitors treat the space;

"People have been jumping around on those pillars forever. They've been sunbathing, they've been having lunch there and I think that’s fine," Peter Eisenman said to the BBC.

"A memorial is an everyday occurrence, it is not sacred ground." At the end of the day, the Berlin memorial has become a huge part of the city's lifestyle.

Pink has been to Holocaust Memorial before with her daughter, explaining in an interview with Reese Witherspoon how the experience was a massive learning lesson for Willow.

The youngster discovered that her grandmother was Jewish; "We went to Budapest, and we went to Berlin, and the Holocaust memorial. This could have been us," Pink said.

When Pink asked her daughter what her favourite city was, she replied;

"I think it was Berlin, because there was a wall and people were separated, and there was a war and people were killed, and now everybody's together and there's no more wall and there’s no more war and that means everything that’s bad can be good again."

Pink reminisced on the moment, saying; "And I'm just listening to her and I’m like, 'You're amazing and you’re totally right: Everything that’s bad can be good again.'".

The legendary singer has taken on "the parenting police" on multiple occasions, and is well able to tackle the criticism.

Stacey Solomon is set to welcome her third child into the world in a matter of weeks and there’s no doubt the mum is feeling as excited as ever about the pending arrival of her newborn.

However, Stacey has admitted she has felt pressure from people because she has had each of her children with a different dad.

The Loose Women panelist opened up to Closer magazine about her family and stressed that we need to break the stigma about having babies with different dads.

She said: “I did feel guilty about having babies with different dads. I didn't want my kids to have a negative or confused upbringing. There's a stigma about having babies with different partners."

The soon-to-be mum-of-three added: “I've definitely felt pressure from people – people I don't know, and even people I do know. Even those close to me have had their opinions on it, and that can hurt."

Stacey said she doesn’t let these comments get to her. She knows that her two boys- seven-year-old Leighton and 11-year-old Zachary- will always be loved and cared for, no matter what.

“My boys are incredibly loved – by me and their fathers, and by Joe, who is just another positive male role model in their lives. And that can only be good for them. They are so content and confident and happy,” she revealed.

Zoe Saldana has revealed snippets of her personal life, specifically how she raises her three sons with husband Marco Perego Saldana.

The Avengers actress, who plays Gamora in Guardians Of The Galaxy, shares four-year-old twins Cy and Bowie with Marco, as well as two-year-old Zen.

She opened up about how she raises her little boys, revealing that she was attempting to keep her household a "gender-neutal environment" with male and female inspirations involved in their lives.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by T.U.T (@theseurbantimes) on

"I’m always gonna be honest and that is always the best way to welcome healthy and truthful discourse, especially around parenthood," the actress told Us Weekly this week.

"The twins made a comment two weeks ago like, “Boys are stronger than girls,” because they’re in that stage of comparisons. And you have to take a moment and kind of put together an answer that they will understand," she continued.

She wants her boys to be a "blank slate", rather than being influenced by gender stereotypes before choosing their own identities.

Her aim is, "To not bring all this charge that you have as an adult and as a woman into their lives." She opened up last June about allowing her sons to pick their own method of doing things, with Zoe leading by example with her partner.

"We have a very gender-neutral environment where my husband participates in a lot of tasks that were normally given to women and vice versa," she previously told Us Weekly. "I get to do a lot of male things, which is, I don’t know, put the TV together, fix things that break," she said.

"We’re sort of a very gender-fluid household. I think it’s important to raise boys in that environment, and girls as well," the 40-year-old mused.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Zoe Saldana (@zoesaldana) on

Zoe has often done things in an unconventional way, shunning 'tradition', such as her husband Marco taking her surname when they wed in 2013.

Saying he liked the name, Zoe recently added:

"He wanted to really represent being a part of my family and represent my father’s legacy. He respected the fact that he didn’t want me to have to give up my name just because that’s the norm."

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Zoe Saldana (@zoesaldana) on

Saldana was interviewed by People in 2018 and touched upon the idea of gender and parenting;

“When you look at parenting, the whole thing about matriarchy and patriarchy, and Daddy’s little girl and Mama’s boys ― my husband and I find that completely ludicrous and absolutely unhealthy for the upbringing of a child."

“You’re giving them a very distorted and limited view on what a female role is supposed to be in a family and what a male role is supposed to be."

Disney moves can be our saviour when it comes to being a parent.

Plonk them in front of one of the classics and you'll get some peace and quiet – as well as a brilliant story to your kids to enjoy.

Which is exactly what Kelly Clarkson does with her daughter, four-year-old River Rose.

The 36-year-old told  Entertainment Tonight that she tried to tell her daughter about the mechanics behind voicing an animated character – and it backfired.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Kelly Clarkson (@kellyclarkson) on

She said, ''I was explaining to her, because she was confused, and I said, ‘It’s my voice. Like, you know, like how Elsa and Anna, there’s a person that plays Elsa and Anna?’ And I didn’t get what I was doing!”

She continued, ''I pretty much crushed her dreams. I didn’t really realise what I was doing.''

She added, ''But she’s very clever. She would’ve figured it out, after finding out that I’m [a voice in UglyDolls]. I’m justifying it to make myself feel better.”

Kelly says how awful she felt when she realised her blunder and how she ruined the fantasy for River.

She said, ''I saw her little face, and I just saw the wheels spinning and I was like, ‘Oh no!…But isn’t it exciting that you can meet the real girl that plays Elsa?’”

She continued, ''I was like, ‘Let’s flip this into a positive!’ It was so sad.”

Kelly is also mum to three-year-old son Remy, and we're sure she won't be making any more slip-ups when it comes to iconic kids movies again.

Diane Kruger has made an emotional plea for her newborn daughter's privacy after unauthorised images of the little girl were leaked.

She revealed her pregnancy in May and her little bundle of joy was born in November. Kruger told Extra“She’s very little, but I’m tired. I feel like a superhero right now.”

The 42-year-old actress only recently welcomed her first baby with boyfriend Norman Reedus, and explained via her Instagram account that the photos were not permitted to be captured.

She captioned the photo of an image featuring her baby's face blurred out;

“Dear fans, dear non fans, dear paparazzi and anyone with a conscience. We were just tagged in these paparazzi pictures of me and our daughter. These pictures were taken without our consent and expose a vulnerable and innocent baby,”

“While we understand that some people would like to see a picture of our daughter, we as parents, want nothing more than allow her to grow up in privacy and safety," she added.

Tagging her boyfriend Reedus, she concluded; “Me and @bigbaldhead would kindly ask you not to repost these pictures and help us achieve that goal."

The baby's name and birth date are unknown to the public.

The happy couple met while they were filming Sky in 2015, and went public with their romance in March of 2017.

Reedus has a 19-year-old child with ex-wife Helena Christensen.

We hope the new parents get the privacy they deserve.

It's only the fourth day of 2019 and Scott Disick is already in hot water.

The drama has come in the form of a photo that Scott posted with daughter, Penelope.

The picture of his six-year-old daughter and himself has been branded by some as "racist".

However, it was Penelope's pose that fans have taken issue with.

The little girl is seen pulling at her eyelids and people have taken offence to the "inappropriate face".

"What he is teaching his daughter in this photo, is racism," commented one user.

“Wow and this is a prime example of how racism is taught. People aren’t born with it. Ignorance at its finest,” said another.

"The problem that people have is this that they’re eating Asian food and holding chopsticks. Obviously, his daughter is trying to make a fun of Chinese eyes! Look people, tell your kids it’s not funny to be racist," added another.

However, fans were quick to come to his defensive and say that Penelope was making an innocent face, as children always pull faces.

"Kids can’t just make funny faces anymore?? It’s pathetic that everything is now “racist” or “offensive”. This is a CHILD making a funny face. People need to get over themselves and stop making mountains out of mole hills," said a user.

"Hello Asian girl here – if she was pulling them to the side and there was a racist caption or Asian emoji then I would feel offended – but it honestly just looks like she’s trying to pull her face and make it look funny lol she’s so cute," commented another.

"Good grief. Leave it alone. She is a cute little girl making a face for the camera. My grandkids do the same thing," said another.

Brent and Brianna Daley were arrested this week after leaving their two-year-old son at home alone for about 90 minutes.

The real kicker to the story? The young parents were just driving around their area playing Pokémon Go!

The family are from Arizona, and have been experiencing a heat wave this summer, with the temperature being 35 degrees when the young boy was left alone. 

According to reports, the two-year-old was found “red faced, sweaty and dirty” outside his home while barefoot and only wearing a nappy!  

When authorities arrived to the house, they said they found the boy “screaming and crying attempting to get into the residence."

When the police called Brent Daley, the boy's father, he answered and said, “whatever,” when told that they had found the boy abandoned.

After the parents were taken into custody, they admitted that they had left the child alone for roughly 90 minutes. 

In a press release, the local Sheriff said that “The couple admitted they were away for the residence for up to 90 minutes playing Pokémon Go! the smartphone game,” 

The Sheriff, who is also running for local government in Arizona, posted a status on Facebook about the situation.

Brianna and Brent Daley were booked into the local county jail on charges of child neglect and endangerment. 

It is not clear if the couple has hired legal aid, but the child is now with child protective services in Arizona.

We image the likes of Tom Fletcher having oh-so cool birthday bashes involving a chic nightclub, bottles of champagne and vodka, and an after-party in a five-star hotel suite. 

But nope – it seems when the dad-of-two marked his 31st bday over the weekend, he did so in a spectacularly low-key fashion.

 

Me and Buzz are having a shoe off.

Indeed, and as revealed on Instagram, the celebrations looked delightfully worlds away from his celebrity status.

Standing with his two-year-old son Buzz hanging from his t-shirt (major swoon all the same), Tom can be seen holding up a balloon in his left hand, and a home-made card in his right.

 

Woke up to a poop on the living room floor and a pee on the bathroom floor. Happy Birthday to me…

In the background, the glorious weekend mayhem of family-life is in clear view: oodles of coloured toys, puzzles and games and are strewn around the vicinity. 

Better still, Mr Fletcher reveals in the accompanying caption that his birthday 'presents' included "a poop on the living room floor and a pee on the bathroom floor".

Still, his loyal fans didn't seem to mind – the Instagram snap was soon flooded with hearty best wishes and birthday congratulations.

As well as toddler Buzz, Tom and his wife of four years, Giovanna, have a five-month old son, Buddy. 

Yesterday, the musician added a further snap of Buzz to his Instagram page. The touching black-and-white snap shows the child playing with a toy car. "Love watching my boy use his imagination," he wrote.

And this morning, Mr Fletcher revealed that he and his eldest son had on complementing footwear.

Me and Buzz are having a shoe-off," he wrote alongside a snap showing the elder Fletcher in Mickey Mouse slip-ons, and the little boy in corresponding Super Mario runners.

We love a good pregnancy reveal story, and the fact that this one takes place at 10,000 metres makes it all the sweeter.

Mum-to-be Lisa Sadiwynk recently boarded a plane from Las Vegas to Philadelphia with her husband, and she decided it was high (geddit?) time to let him know he was due to become a dad.

After doing the usual announcements about flight time and weather, the American Airlines pilot on Lisa and Eric's plane told the passengers it was "time to have a little fun."

Calling out Eric's seat number and name, he then explained what was going on.

"Well Eric although you didn’t strike it rich here in Las Vegas you did hit the jackpot. Congratulations, you’re about to be a dad!"

How sweet?! And the moment Eric starts to cry just before the video ends is truly gorgeous.

Lisa's video has already racked up 35,000 views on Facebook, and she says she's hoping to track down some of the plane crew again to thank them properly.

Watch it in full here:

Here's a MUST WATCH! A few weeks ago, my husband Eric Sadiwnyk got quite the surprise on our returning flight from Las…
