James Van Der Beek's Family Arrives in Texas After 'Drastic' Life Changes

Starting over! James Van Der Beek and his family have reached their new Texas home after a weeklong road trip.

“We’ve landed,” the Dawson’s Creek alum, 43, captioned a Tuesday, October 13, Instagram slideshow. “In the last 10 months, we’ve had two late-term pregnancy losses, each of which put [my wife, Kimberly Van Der Beek], in the hospital, we spent Christmas break thinking she had a tumor (the doctor was wrong, thank god), a business colleague I hired hijacked the project and stabbed me in the back, I was prematurely booted off a reality dancing show, [Dancing With the Stars], I was favored to win in front of the whole world and my mom, [Melinda Weber], died. And a shut-down [due to the coronavirus pandemic].”

The actor went on to write, “All of that led to some drastic changes in our lives, and dreams, and priorities … and landed us here. Overflowing with profound gratitude today.”

He and the Washington native, 38, documented their move from California last month. “Sometimes a fuller life begins with an empty house,” the Varsity Blues star wrote via Instagram in September. “Leaving Los Angeles incredibly grateful for all the friends and memories we’ve made here. Onto the next big adventure!”

Kimberly shared their motivations in a “The Make Down” podcast episode, explaining, “I think we’re in a time right now where people are wanting to ground themselves a little bit more into nature. And L.A. has been a magical place for many years for me. So much life has been lived here. I’m going to go through a process to leave. I mean, I birthed three kids in the home I’m living in. But you know, I gotta get out of the concrete jungle for a little bit.”

The family of six spent 10 days on the road to Texas along with their “two new rescue pups.” Kimberly shared shots of the canines in September, writing, “Their names are Windsor (blue eyed gray one) and Able. Able means breath. And we need a lot of breath right now. Rocky and Skye bonded with them right away.”

Offset Shows Off Kulture's $8K Car Seat: 'Bet It Has Peanut Butter and Jelly on It in 1 Week'

Kulture Kiari is riding in style.

Offset and Cardi B's 2-year-old daughter is the lucky recipient of a comfortable-looking, chic custom car seat, which her dad showed off Monday on Instagram.

Crafted from a tan-colored fabric, the seat boasts a large cup holder in front of one arm rest and the little girl's first name on the headrest, in brown cursive writing.

"8 thousand dollar car seat and i bet it has peanut butter and jelly on it in 1 week 😂," the Migos rapper, 28, wrote in the accompanying caption.

Cardi B Surprised with Birthday Billboard from Her Daughter as Offset Tells Fans "I Miss Mrs. WAP"

Kulture's parents have certainly not held back on spoiling their baby girl since her July 2018 arrival, having gifted her items like a $100,000 necklace, a custom diamond nameplate, an $830 Versace snowsuit, a gold crib (complete with a crown) and her very own Birkin bag for her second birthday this past summer.

After Kulture received the bag, Cardi, 28, clapped back at negative comments on her Instagram Story, pointing out that people would have issues with her daughter's wardrobe and accessories no matter what.

"When celebrities buy their kids jewelry and designer s—, people be like, 'Kids don't care about that. They only care about toys and candy,' " the rapper began in her video, which she also cross-posted to Twitter. "Yeah, kids only care about toys and candy, but the thing is that kids also go outside. You know what I'm saying? Kids go to restaurants, kids go to fancy places, celebrity kids, they go do red carpets."

"And if I'm fly and Daddy's fly, then so is the kid. If I'm wearing Cha-nay-nay [Chanel], my kid's having the same same," she said at the time. "It's not up to what the kids like. If it was the kids, they would be outside in diapers. No. 'Cause if I was looking like a bad bitch, expensive bitch, and I have my kid looking like a bum bum, then y'all would be talking s—. So I'm not mad that Daddy bought baby a Birkin. She gonna match Mommy."

Last month, Cardi unveiled Kulture's very own Instagram account, which features various photos and videos of the toddler showing off her stylish outfits, swimming in a pool, matching with Mom and more. The account for the little girl already has 1 million followers.

Offset's relationship with Cardi appeared to be back on during the "WAP" rapper's 28th birthday celebration on Saturday night, just one month after she filed for divorce from him.

Cardi marked her latest age milestone with a Las Vegas bash alongside Offset, Megan Thee Stallion, Kylie Jenner and more fellow celebs. Cardi chartered a Playboy jet while the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, who gifted Cardi a new Birkin bag, shared videos and photos arriving in her own private plane.

The celebration went well into the morning, with Offset sharing a series of behind-the-scenes videos on his Instagram Story featuring Cardi and her friends dancing at their hotel.

At one point, he placed his hand on Cardi as she danced in front of him. In another video, the birthday gal gave her ex a lap dance. Offset also posted a video to his Instagram page in which he called Cardi his "girl." At another point in the evening, the "I Like It" rapper was even photographed kissing her estranged husband.

Bruce Willis Enjoys the 'Great Outdoors' with His Wife Emma and Their Daughters Evelyn and Mabel

Bruce Willis and his girls are enjoying the fall weather together!

On Saturday, Emma Heming Willis shared a series of pictures and videos from her family-fun day in nature with husband Bruce and their two young daughters, Mabel, 8, and Evelyn, 5.

During their adventure, Emma snapped a selfie of the group smiling while her husband, 65, and their girls sat on a log in front of a creek. "The great outdoors 🍂🍁," she captioned the sweet photo.

The Die Hard star — who also shares daughters Rumer, 32, Scout, 29, and Tallulah, 26 with ex-wife Demi Moore — dressed prepared for the outdoors, wearing a pair of hiking boots, a bandana and a bomber jacket.

Emma, 42, also posted several Instagram Stories which showed Bruce playing with the two girls and the beautiful mountain scenery.

In one photo, the actor is seen smiling next to Mabel as they sit on a log in a wooded area. "These two in their natural habitat," Emma captioned the picture.

The mom of two also shared a clip of Bruce and the girls walking toward a creek with a bridge, writing #SaturdayVibes. Bruce later helped his youngest daughter walk across a fallen tree in another heartwarming photo.

Emma also included photos of the two girls playing with one another and walking near the creek. To prove that she was actually with the group, the model's last upload was a "gratuitous selfie" or else she'd "never be in any photos," she teased.

Towards the beginning of the coronavirus crisis, Emma and her two daughters were at home in Los Angeles while Bruce joined ex Moore and their daughters Rumer, Scout and Tallulah at their home in Idaho.

A source previously told PEOPLE that the Moore-Willis clan has been “one happy family” since they began social distancing together amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. In June, the entire family celebrated Emma’s 42nd birthday together.

Bruce and Moore were married for 13 years before splitting in 2000. He and wife Emma tied the knot nine years later.

In April, Scout revealed why her stepmother and her half-sisters had not been able to initially join them for stay at home orders amid the coronavirus crisis, revealing one of her younger siblings had accidentally stepped on a needle while at a park in Los Angeles.

"My stepmom had to be in L.A. waiting to get the results from taking her to the doctor so my dad came up here and then travel got crazy so my stepmom stayed in L.A. with my little sisters," Scout said on the Dopey podcast.

Jodie Turner-Smith on Teaching 'Self-Assuredness' to Daughter Janie, 6 Months: 'It's Important'

Jodie Turner-Smith says her newly expanded family is the only thing that makes "sense" in tumultuous 2020.

Speaking with Vogue for the magazine's October issue, the Queen & Slim actress, 34, reflects on welcoming daughter Janie with husband Joshua Jackson in April, right in the middle of a global pandemic and a renewed focus on correcting racial injustices.

Turner-Smith said the time in self-isolation was helpful so she could fully focus on becoming a new mom.

"I had to learn how to breastfeed and how to be a mom — it really worked out for my baby," she said, adding that her mother lived with them for three months to lend a helping hand.

"It doesn't make sense that we still have to be screaming to the world that our lives matter. It doesn't make sense that Black people are being senselessly mowed down by the police," continued the actress. "It doesn't make sense, this country's response to the global pandemic. It doesn't make sense that so many people are unemployed, and the government is bailing out corporations."

"But what did make sense, inside of that," she said, "was the love of my family."

Jodie Turner-Smith on Not Wanting to Pass 'Fear' and 'Sadness' to Daughter Through Breastfeeding

Turner-Smith also shared that she wants to pass down internal confidence to her daughter, who's now 6 months old. "That self-­assuredness is what is going to help her navigate life," explained the new mom. "It's important to impart to my daughter what is beautiful about her, and about who she comes from and where she comes from, and what is powerful about that."

Elsewhere in her conversation with Vogue, Turner-Smith explained her newfound "beauty secret" that she discovered postpartum: her own breast milk as an ingredient in her skincare.

"Ever since I had my baby, my current beauty secret is that I put breast milk in all of my face serums," she said. "My skin is very sensitive, so I use a light cleanser and then I put on a serum with aloe and breast milk that I literally squeeze right into my hands from my boob. I think it's the lactic acid. I've just found that the milk has been revolutionary."

Last month, Jackson, 42, posted a sweet tribute to his wife in honor of her 34th birthday, thanking Turner-Smith for all of the positive ways she's impacted his life. PEOPLE confirmed last December that the couple had tied the knot.

"Happy Birthday my beautiful wife," The Affair actor wrote at the time. "Thank you for choosing to share your light with me. Thank you for walking this path of life as my wife. Thank you for bringing our daughter into the world."

His caption continued, "This last year has been the happiest whirlwind of my life. I can't wait to see what all the years to come bring our way."

Audrey Hepburn's Son Writes Kids' Book About Her Life: She 'Didn't Have the Time to Be Self-Pitying'

Sean Hepburn Ferrer — Audrey Hepburn's oldest son who wrote a book about his mother's legendary life 17 years ago — is now releasing a book for children.

Little Audrey's Daydream: The Life of Audrey Hepburn, which published on Tuesday, is an enchanting look at young Audrey Hepburn, who dreams of becoming a ballerina, and later an actress, mother and humanitarian, despite the darkness that surrounds her in Holland during World War II.

In an exclusive interview with PEOPLE, Ferrer discusses the book, what his mom would say about life during such tumultuous times and how he and his children are keeping the late actress' memory alive. (It's not by watching her movies!)

"Children, like animals, and believe me, that's a compliment in my world, feel the difference. They know where the truth lies," Ferrer says of his mother's enduring legacy, which motivated him to write Little Audrey's Daydream. (Hepburn died in 1993 after a battle with colon cancer.)

He adds, "They can feel it in a minute if someone is genuine. And still, I think, in a world of Kardashians, they must look at those old movies and go, 'Wow. She was for real, she was the real thing.' "

Never miss a story — sign up for PEOPLE's free daily newsletter to stay up-to-date on the best of what PEOPLE has to offer, from juicy celebrity news to compelling human interest stories.

Ferrer hopes that children who read the book will learn to stay positive, even in difficult moments, and to help others.

"You have to dream in a wholesome way, not just dream about yourself, but dream about what's best for all," Ferrer, 60, says of the biggest lesson in the book, which he wrote with wife Karin.

Little Audrey's Daydream was illustrated by Dominique Corbasson and François Avril. Corbasson completed the book shortly before she passed away from cancer.

"[My mother] often used to say, 'In life, things get complicated. When you have to make decisions, try and take yourself out of the equation,'" he continues, "'And if you do what's best for the other person or for the group, it'll become much easier to decide what to do.'"

Hepburn became one of the most beloved actors of all time by starring in films like Roman Holiday (1953) and Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961). But her most important role — serving as a UNICEF ambassador, which earned her the Presidential Medal of Freedom — was influenced by her own hardships as a child during World War II. (During the war, young Hepburn survived near starvation and helped the Dutch resistance.) Ferrer explains that while his mother's difficult childhood isn't the same as what children are experiencing now during the COVID-19 pandemic, there are parallels.

"Taking certain things for granted and losing certain freedoms… Those dynamics are there today for us, so children are living through a similar experience,"says Ferrer.

"Rather than giving advice about it, I think she felt mostly that children had the rights to a childhood," Ferrer continues. "She spoke not only of the hunger of the body, but of the hunger of the soul. All the things that come with being a child: not just education and food and care and medicine, but the tenderness and the opportunity to be a child. To do nothing. To play."

This belief guided Hepburn's own parenting style. (She shared Ferrer with ex-husband Mel Ferrer and son Luca Dotti, now 50, with ex-husband Andrea Dotti.)

Ferrer was raised part of the time in Switzerland. While there weren't many books catering to children at that time, he says that he read a wide range of literature, which amounted to thousands of books, by the time he was 18. Hepburn encouraged his reading, his love of languages (he spoke and read in four languages), and treated him like an equal.

"She had good boundaries. She came from a Victorian background where everything was a rule and everything was absolute," says Ferrer. He explains that Hepburn decided to raise her children in a less rigid manner.

"She would always say, 'This is what I would do if I were you. You're free in the end to make your own decision,' " Ferrer says. "Then comes in the little Jewish gene, where she'd say, 'It'd kill me if you do it, but in the end you can choose, but this is what I would do.' "

He adds, "She was so delightful, why would you want to do something that displeased her?"

This type of rapport meant they not only had a great relationship, but a "friendship," Ferrer explains. "I used to make her laugh from the belly, and that's a wonderful thing to take with you," he remembers. "What can you do for a woman like that? But if you can make her laugh, it's a wonderful thing."

One of the biggest lessons Hepburn taught her sons was the importance of social service — rather than focusing on oneself.

"She came from a generation where you didn't have the time or the luxury to be self-pitying," Ferrer says of what motivated his mother to stay positive during the war and to help others in her later years.

In 1994, Ferrer and Dotti created The Audrey Hepburn Children's Fund and continue to focus on charitable work. Now Ferrer is passing that lesson on to his children. (Ferrer and his wife share his children from previous marriages, Emma, 26, Gregorio, 20, and Santiago, 16, and her children, Adone, 25, and Athena, 20.) He says he made a point to focus on Hepburn's humanitarian work, rather than have his kids watch their grandmother's films on rotation.

"She's already going to play a larger-than-life role in their lives, and I think my daughter, Emma, who's the eldest, living in New York, has probably already experienced this," Ferrer says. "It's very difficult to have a conversation about yourself when you're the granddaughter of Audrey Hepburn, as it was difficult for me to have a conversation about something without, 'What was she like? What was she really like?' "

Like her grandmother, Emma has also served as an ambassador for UNICEF, Ferrer explains. His children have all helped with the foundation and engaged in humanitarian work.

"I think that's a nice way to stay in touch with [their grandmother], by doing for others," Ferrer explains. "I think everyone gets that and everybody's always been happy to pitch in and do it, and there's something natural and lovely about it. Something legitimate."

‘Why do our kids need to learn coding, when we never did?’

The answer lies in what kids actually learn with coding classes for kids – the ability to break down a problem in a structured form and use different faculties like arts, creativity, problem solving to design the solution

By Rahul Ranjan

Coding education for young children is the new buzzword in the Edtech space. Indians are known to be great programmers and we produce a million of them annually; thanks to thousands of engineering colleges which came up during the IT boom at the beginning of this millennium. So why do we need kids to learn coding at an early age? Do we want to produce more engineers? What about other professionals like lawyers, architects, doctors, artists, musicians and photographers?

The answer lies in what kids actually learn with Coding classes for Kids – Computational Thinking and Algorithmic Intelligence. In simple terms, the ability to break down a problem in a structured form and use different faculties like arts, creativity, problem solving to design the solution.

The next key question is – ‘Why do our kids need this, since we never learned to code?’ It is pertinent and a great question from a parent’s perspective. After all, they come from all walks of life and are successful without having learned any form of Coding. Had our world not evolved technologically, these questions would be as pertinent as always.

ALSO READ | Lockdown learning: Kids need music and art classes too, say teachers

However, our world today is being shaped by artificial intelligence – From Edtech to Foodtech to LegalTech and AgriTech; intelligent technology is driving everything. Imagine a five-year-old of today, growing on to become a lawyer 20 years down the line. Will the courts and legal transactions remain the same as today? Certainly not. We already have simple things like Stamp Duty and filings moving online. Our elderly, who are not well versed with Computer Technology, struggle to work with basics. In the AI age of tomorrow, a Lawyer would be expected to understand the basics of Computing and the use of AI-driven tools, apart from being an excellent Law Grad.

Medical professionals of the future would be no different. Covid19 Pandemic moved lots of doctors and medical processes online. In the future world 15 years from now, almost all processes from basic tasks like writing prescriptions to elaborate ones like diagnosing complex ailments will be AI-driven. It will be necessary for doctors to understand AI as much as they understand the human body.

ALSO READ | How a story book is teaching 4-6 year olds the basics of coding, one activity at a time

A music producer friend of mine based out of Los Angeles spoke about his struggles in the world rapidly adopting Intelligent Technology like AI. He says that unlike 12 years ago when he graduated from music school when the music would be recorded with vocals in a single setting; today music tech is used to sync vocals, instrumentals, and other audio inputs. When he moved to LA from Mumbai, the problem of not understanding technology dawned on him.

The last and most important question – ‘What and how long to learn?’ Start with tools like Scratch Junior available for Android and iOS. It is a free tool and a great way to introduce your child to Computational Thinking & Algorithmic Intelligence (CTAI). If your child loves what he does on Scratch Jr, then sign up for a Teacher-Led program for 12-16 hours. For most kids, this exposure clubbed with self-tinkering with projects would be a tremendous solid foundation in CTAI. It’s as good as some kids excelling in Mathematics and some opting for non-Mathematics based careers and excelling in it.

And then we always have some students who would want to excel in CTAI and opt for new-age careers in AI, Machine Learning and Game Design. For such kids, they should sign up for courses in Python, which is an elementary gateway to Machine Learning.

ALSO READ | This couple’s early learning initiative is helping parents get their own ‘boss baby’


This is another popular query. ‘Will my child get a certificate?’ A certificate is essentially a document that can be shared with a third party to testify that your child has completed and aced a subject matter. Sign up for courses that allow your child to be assessed on learning outcomes and gives an opportunity to them to get a graded certificate by third party independent authority. In the Indian context, it would be like a CBSE/ICSE/IB board assessing your child at the end of school tenure.

The couple announced that they were expecting their second child together in early May on Graf's podcast, Now What?!.

"After dozens of negative pregnancy tests, Cody and I finally got the results we wanted! We're so happy to announce we are officially expecting a new addition to our family this fall," Graf told PEOPLE in an exclusive statement.

During the podcast, Graf recounted the story of when she found out she was pregnant. "It was so unexpected … we had been trying for months," she explained.

The Amazing Race alum recalled going to the doctor earlier this year thinking that she had an ovarian cyst. Although Graf was unsure if she was pregnant, the doctor made her take a urine test before leaving the office just to be safe that she could be put on medication.

"I was on my way to the airport and I get a call from the doctor who says, 'I don't know how to tell you this but I can't prescribe you those pills, you're pregnant,' " she shared on the podcast. "I lost it. I was bawling my eyes out in the car and FaceTimed Cody."

"We're excited — I'm excited to have two little tots running around," she added. "Now that Maverick knows how to walk, she can be a good big sister."

Graf and Nickson welcomed Maverick in March 2019. The reality star was forced to undergo an emergency cesarean section after suffering extremely high blood pressure.

After meeting on season 19 of Big Brother in summer 2017, Graf and Nickson went on to win season 30 of The Amazing Race. The two then tied the knot in October 2018.

Kylie Jenner and Daughter Stormi Celebrate Halloween Early by Baking Holiday-Themed Cookies

Kylie Jenner and her daughter Stormi are ringing in the spooky season with some sweet treats.

Jenner, 23, documented the process of the mother-daughter pair's fun in the kitchen in her latest YouTube video.

"Are you gonna be a good helper?" Jenner asks Stormi, 2½, in the video as the toddler started to lick one of the utensils.

"Yes, Mommy," Stormi answers, "Let's make cookies again!"

After a few messes and tickle breaks, the duo — who wore matching, seasonal Snoopy pajamas complete with pumpkins — cut the dough into Halloween-themed shapes.

Once the pumpkins, bats and ghosts are out of the oven and cooled, Jenner and Stormi get to decorating.

During the decorating, Stormi reveals that she is going to be a minion for Halloween, and Jenner shares that she and Travis Scott will also dress up as the yellow henchmen from Despicable Me while their daughter will be a purple one.

"That's so cute!" Stormi says as she covered a pumpkin-shaped cookie in sprinkles.

When Jenner asks who they should gift the cookies to, Stormi adorably answers that she wants to share with her cousin True Thompson.

At the end of the video, Jenner wishes viewers a happy and safe Halloween.

"I hope everyone has the best Halloween despite everything, and I hope everyone stays safe. We love you guys," Jenner says, as Stormi adds, "I love you!"

On Instagram, Jenner shared several photos featuring Stormi and their finished cookies.

The Kylie Cosmetics founder wrote in the caption of the post, "back with my favorite girl baking halloween cookies 🧡🧡 check out our new youtube vid 🎃✨."
