When Dancing With The Stars bombshell Brooke Burke met her husband David Charvet, she was already mom to her two daughters Neriah, 11, and Sierra, 9, from her marriage to plastic surgeon Garth Fisher. The cute couple went on to have daughter Heaven, 4, and son Shaya, 3, together and have since married. Now that the families are officially blended, Brooke claims that mixing the two households isn’t exactly a simple science.
“Having a blended family is a challenge,” the 40-year-old star reveals to Fitness magazine. “Two of my children are with their father part of the week, so when they come home they want me all to themselves. Then my other two children, who have had me all to themselves, suddenly have to share, and that can make them very needy.”
“There is a lot of action in my household, and sometimes I’m a referee all day long!” she adds.
Athough being a mom is truly a gift, the daily challenges we all face seem to affect Brooke too.
“Nobody ever says, ‘Thanks for getting up early and making me that lunch, Mom. I enjoyed what was in my lunchbox today. So when I do hear that from my kids, it feels really good. Maybe that’s why I treat the people I work with well.”

Soccer stud David Beckham and his fashionista wife Victoria Beckham were spotted arriving at Heathrow Airport in London, England with their four children Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, 9, Cruz, 6, and Harper, 5 months on Saturday (December 18).
The famous family – who were returning from Los Angeles – were quick to load into an awaiting car.
It looks like the famous couple are considering relocating back to the UK since David is finished with his American soccer career. The star is currently talking with French club Paris Saint-Germain and a number of other European teams. Instead of Victoria and the children staying put in Los Angeles while he plays, they are considering moving the entire family.
“David is on the brink of committing to either Paris Saint-Germain or a UK club. He’ll make the announcement just after the New Year,” a source reveals.
“They are preparing to be back in Britain and have been looking at schools for the boys. David is keen on one particular school because it’s the area where he grew up and when he was a child he always wished he could have gone there.”
“David has always been adamant he wants to end his career in Europe and Victoria is totally behind the move, ” the source adds. “She is using the opportunity to work on her fashion profile in Europe and the boys will be privately educated. They are all very excited.”

Power couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were snapped taking their children Maddox, 10, Pax, 8, Zahara, 6, Shiloh, 5, and 3-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne to to see Cirque du Soleil’s Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour in Las Vegas, Nevada on Friday (December 16).
Angelina held Zahara – who wore an adorable sea shell patterned dress under a tan trench coat – by the hand as they walked behind security through the Mandalay Bay Hotel after the performance. Brad – who turned 48 on Sunday – held sweet Shiloh’s hand while big brother Pax trailed behind the famous group.
“They enjoyed the performance and stayed until the very end rather than sneaking out at the curtain close,” an eyewitness reveals to the Las Vegas Sun‘s Robin Leach. “They joined the crowd during the final standing ovation. It didn’t look as if the cast knew the Hollywood couple was there until they heard the buzz in the audience.”
“It hadn’t been announced to them beforehand, so they gave a little nod and a bow in their direction at the end,” the source continues. “Brad and Angelina were applauding and smiling ear to ear with their children, who loved the show. Then they quietly left to walk back to the Four Seasons.”
Happy 48th Birthday Brad!
