Prince William Reveals Princess Charlotte and Prince George’s Favorite Bedtime Story

Ever wonder what Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince George‘s beloved bedtime story are? The Duke of Cambridge, 36, revealed that The Gruffalo is a “big hit” with his two eldest kids.

While meeting the book’s author at a conservation event held at Kensington Palace on Monday Prince William told the writer, “I know who you are.”

The Duke told the children’s book author Julia Donaldson and illustrator for the book Axel Scheffler that it’s one of George’s and Charlotte’s most-liked stories.

Prince William also joked that his son George, 5, would be “keeping an eye” on the model rhino the author and illustrator decorated as part of an art installation to raise awareness for the dissipating rhino population that has occurred over the years due to poaching.

After meeting Donaldson, 69, and Scheffler, 61, William admitted to them, “I know who you are. It’s a big hit in our household.”

The book that was first published in 1999 tells the story of a mouse who takes a stroll in the enchanted forest and comes across several creatures that want to eat him. Along the way, the mouse meets a Gruffalo, a hybrid of a bear and buffalo.

William spoke about the duo’s decorated rhino they created giving praise, “‘It’s amazing, I love it. You can tell it’s you guys. It’s the eyes of the animals I think, you can always tell the eyes.’

Donaldson and Scheffler were asked to decorate 1 of 21 model rhino’s that were displayed at the event on behalf of the conservation organization Tusk. William has been a royal patron of the conservation group since 2005, and it was one of the first charities that he adopted.

Tusk works with Africa’s conservations to protect their endangered wildlife and fight against poaching. This has been a topic near and dear to William who has commissioned to stop illegal wildlife trade under the umbrella of his United for Wildlife coalition.

William was grateful to Donaldson and Scheffler for taking part in bringing awareness to the world’s endangered animals that are suffering. He thanked them for helping teach the younger generations about the importance of keeping our wildlife safe. “We need the young generations to really understand,” William said.

Morgan Beck Miller Speaks Out After the Tragic Loss of Her Daughter

Bode Miller’s Wife Speaks Out After the Tragic Loss of Her Daughter: “I Pray No Other Parent Feels This Pain”

Morgan Beck Miller is speaking out on water safety after she and her alpine ski racer husband tragically lost their 19-month-old daughter who drowned in a friends backyard pool. Through Morgan’s grief, she is determined to spread awareness so no other parent should have to feel the pain and loss that she and Bodi have had to endure.

The 31-year-old mother shared a picture of her late daughter Emeline Grier on her Instagram Tuesday of the toddler in the snow. The mother of two wrote a heartfelt message pleading with parents to speak more about preventing drowning accidents than organic foods and over usage of screen time with their kids.

“It’s been 37 days since I’ve held my baby girl. I pray to God no other parent feels this pain. My heart is with you @nicolehughes8 as we walk this journey together,” she wrote in the caption, naming another mother whose child drowned. “And thank you @scarymommy for helping us spread awareness.”

“PLEASE READ! Link in bio! Drowning is the NUMBER ONE cause of death in children ages 1-4. We talk about vaccinations, car seats, organic foods, screen time, etc at length…but not the number one risk your children’s’ lives face…a silent killer,” she added. “It takes SECONDS. Please share and help us spread awareness. It’s the first step to preventing these types of tragedies. #drowning#drowningprevention#truthaboutdrowning.”

The Miller’s tragic loss occurred in early June when Emeline drowned in a pool at a home in Coto de Caza, California. Paramedics were called to the house where they performed CPR on the toddler. Unable to resuscitate Emeline she was taken to a nearby hospital where she shortly after was pronounced dead.

Morgan Beck Miller and Bodi, 40, also share their 3-year-old son Nash Skan. Prior to Emeline’s passing the couple announced they were expecting their third child together. Bodi is also a father to son Samuel, 5, and daughter Neesyn, 10, from previous relationships.

Beck Miller urged her followers to read a story written by another parent who recently lost their son when he drowned while on their family vacation. Nicole Hughe’s wrote a piece about her tragic loss for the blog Scary Mommy. She recalls that tragic day, June 10, when her life changed forever.

I love that I get to celebrate life with you @millerbode #happy5years #happy40th

“It happened so quickly. I don’t know how Levi got away from us as we were cleaning up from dinner, or what lured him to go outside alone,” Hughes wrote.

“I was the one who found him, face down, in the deep end. Just moments before this horrific discovery, I split a brownie with him. I still had the other half of the brownie in my mouth when I jumped into the pool to grab my son. Mere moments, seconds.”

“Lying in bed and sobbing will not bring him back (oh, but if it would). I don’t want this role of water-safety advocate. I want 30 seconds back on June 10. But I am determined to share these facts I so desperately wish I had known.”

Meghan posted a picture of her baby boys’ legs and feet, writing alongside the picture, “Announcing our perfect, beautiful, and healthy twin baby boys! They arrived at 10:48pm and 11:32pm on June 5 weighing 6lbs 15oz (20″) and 6lbs 0oz (19.25″). Everyone is doing well. Stayed tuned for names and birth story.”

Proud Husband Edmonds shared the same photo and revealed his wife is nothing short of a saint writing, “Everyone is doing well. My wife was a rock star once again and delivered both babies with no medication. #onetoughlady.”

A source close to the couple revealed, “Meghan is head over heels to be a mom again. She and Jim feel so blessed to have two perfect happy, healthy, baby boys now in their family.”

Their twin boys join big sister 18-month-old Aspen. Edmonds, 47, also has four children from a previous marriage.

“The twins are downright adorable. It was a long pregnancy for Meghan, and it got especially uncomfortable during those last few weeks, but she’s just so relieved that the boys arrived safely,” the source says. “Motherhood really fits Meghan. She’s an incredibly caring, considerate, and kind mom, and she’s so close with Aspen. The two have an amazing bond.”

The source adds, “Meghan’s sure got her hands full now, but there’s no doubt she’s going to be a wonderful mom to those two boys, too. And Aspen is going to be the best big sister. She’s such a sweet little girl.”

Congrats on your two new additions!

Sandra Bullock Wants to End the Phrase “my adopted child”

Hollywood A-Lister Sandra Bullock sat down with Today Co-Host Hoda Kotb for an interview that will air on Monday’s show. The two women have a unique alliance, both sharing the experience of adoption to start families of their own.

Kotb, who adopted her 15-month-old daughter Haley Joy in February 2017 said to the Ocean’s 8 actress, “You don’t even know who you’ve inspired.”

The 53-year-old actress is a mother of two. Sandra adopted her daughter Laila, 5 ½ at the age of 3-years-old in December 2015 and her son Louis, 8, who she welcomed in January 2010 when he was just 3 ½ months old. Both of Bullock’s children were adopted from the state of Louisiana.

Bullock who is usually composed broke down in tears when opening up to Hoda about the special responsibility when becoming an adoptive parent, “You’re a forever parent the minute you accept the love of that child.”

The actress recently opened up to Ellen DeGeneres about the dynamics between Louie and Laila. She revealed that her son Louie is a doting big brother to Laila and is very protective of her. “He wanted his sister and he knew she was his sister, but now there are moments when they want to kill each other.” Bullock also explained that her son is the probable one to antagonize his sister between the two. She joked, “But I like that about her. I like that she’ll take a knife and cut a guy.”

The Oscar winner also spoke in the June issue of InStyle Magazine speaking on the advocacy of adoption and how she feels that we as a community must end the phrase “my adopted child.”

“Look: I’m all for Republican, Democrat, whatever, but don’t talk to me about what I can or can’t do with my body until you’ve taken care of every child who doesn’t have a home or is neglected or abused. It makes me teary-eyed,” she said.

“Let’s all just refer to these kids as ‘our kids.’ Don’t say, ‘my adopted child.’ No one calls their kid their ‘IVF child’ or their ‘Oh, s—, I went to a bar and got knocked up child.’ Let’s just say, ‘our children.’”
