Alicia Keys doesn’t need any parenting advice. Her husband Swizz Beatz says she’s already “ahead of the game.” The DJ and rapper was at the ESPY Awards last Wednesday when he spoke about Keys and their 21-month-old son Egypt Daoud.
He told People, “She’s just a natural mom. She even surprised my mom, who wanted to give her tips but was like, ‘What tips can I give her?! She’s already ahead of the game.’”
The couple – who married in July 2010 – plan to expand their family.
“God willing, yes,” he said. “Everything just has to flow.”
When asked what is the most surprisingly thing about being with the If I Ain’t Got You singer Beatz replied, “That you can really be married to your best friend.”
Keys recently spoke about how motherhood has changed her in a meet and greet video.
“Everything is new. From being married and having a baby, and what that’s done for me. [Motherhood has] just given me a sense of real stability; real connection, grounding, reason, purpose. I’ve realized so much and I’ve learned so much. I’ve become so much more intelligent. I survey the landscape more and try to come up with what’s the best thing for me [and my] family.”
The horrifying news about how Sylvester Stallone‘s son, Sage Stallone, 36, was found dead in his apartment on Friday, broke the hearts of family, friends and fans all over the world. His surprising death lead to a lot of heartbreaking allegations that we couldn’t even stand to watch roll in.
Sage was an actor, director and screenwriter. Remember Rocky Balboa’s son in Stallone’s 1990 film, Rocky V? That adorable dark haired kid was Sage Stallone. Cue tears.
Sylvester told TMZ that he is completely devastated by the death of his son and how badly he wants “the speculation and questionable reporting” to stop. We couldn’t agree more. Stallone went on to say “when a parent loses a child there is no greater pain.” Sly is begging the public to show compassion and respect for Sage’s “loving mother Sasha.”
When speaking about how this would affect his family, Sylvester said “this agonizing loss will be felt for the rest of our lives,” adding, “Sage was our first child and the center of our universe and I am humbly begging for all to have my son’s memory and soul left in peace.”
We here at VH1 send our thoughts and good wishes out to the Sly, Sasha, and the entire family during this incredibly difficult time.
Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick Rile Kris Jenner!

KOURTNEY Kardashian and Scott Discik have riled the reality star’s family — over the naming of the couple’s new child!
Kourtney, 33, and Scott, 29, welcomed their second child, Penelope Scotland Disick, at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on July 8.
However, the birth was marred when Scott became adamant that the couple break away from matriarch Kris Jenner’s family tradition of giving females names that start with “K” — Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, Kendall and Kylie.
“Naming the baby Penelope has created a huge rift between the new parents and family members,” a source told American tabloid the National Enquirer.
“Kris has built a lucrative empire around the fact all the girls have names that start with a ‘K.’ Kris, along with Kim and Khloe, fear that Kourtney’s decision to side with Scott could hurt the Kardashian brand.
“But Kourtney’s praying that siding with Scott over her controlling mother and sisters will save their troubled relationship.
“Bruce is all for Scott and Kourtney starting their own independent little family.
“All the ‘K’ girls are furious at him, but he’s standing his ground.”
Big-wave surfer Laird Hamilton stepped out with his darling daughters to grab lunch at Coogies Beach Cafe in Malibu, Calif, on Saturday (July 7). Mama, volleyball superstar and model Gabby Reece, was not spotted with the trio.
Gabby opened up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about dealing with the paparazzi at certain hot spots in Malibu.
“I am putting myself ‘out-there’ to be interviewed and both my husband and I are in the public eye,” Gabby said. “It’s really a matter of give and take. I’ve never said ‘I can’t stand’ that part of my life. That being said, we’re not as popular as some other families. The paparazzi aren’t outside our home or my kids’ schools, so we don’t have to deal with that. We live in Malibu and Hawaii, so when we’re out in Malibu at certain restaurants and playgrounds, it’s to be expected. Often my husband will go up to the paparazzi at LAX or other spots and ask what their names are and say things like, ‘If you just asked us, we might pose for you.’ He’s more ‘in-your-face’ with them than me. It’s a good thing we’re not a more popular family I think.”
Laird is also dad to 17-year-old daughter Bela from a previous relationship.
