Ivanka Trump’s Daughter Has Mastered Downward Dog

Just like mom, Ivanka Trump‘s 2-year-old daughter Arabella loves being active.

Even at her young age, Trump’s elder child (son Joseph was born last October) enjoys partaking in exercise – yoga is apparently her strong suit.

“She’ll grab a mat, lay it down next to mine, and show me her poses,” Trump, 32, tells SHAPE in their May issue. “You should see her downward dog; it’s so sweet.”

Next up for the little one? Golfing this summer.

“It will probably end up with her just picking up the golf ball and throwing it down the fairway, but that’s cool,” Trump says. “In fact, that’s perfect!”

But with a busy work schedule and family life, it isn’t always easy to sneak in workouts.

“When I was in my 20s, I felt guilty if I didn’t exercise,” she says. “Now I feel guilty if I do. Even if it’s just an hour, that’s time I could be spending with my family. So rather than beat myself up, I find things that I like to do with them instead.”

Adds the entrepreneur: “I think about my priorities and ensure they’re in check with how I want to live my life. I enjoy my home and my work. Hopefully, over time, my kids will admire me and be okay with the choices I’ve made.”

AC/DC Guitarist Malcolm Young Is Ill, Taking Break from Band

04/16/2014 at 03:15 PM EDT

AC/DC‘s Malcolm Young is ill and will take a break from performing, the band announced Wednesday.

“After 40 years of life dedicated to AC/DC, guitarist and founding member Malcolm Young is taking a break from the band due to ill health,” AC/DC wrote on its website. “Malcolm would like to thank the group’s diehard legions of fans worldwide for their never-ending love and support.”

Young, 61, started AC/DC in 1973 and has played with the rock group ever since – besides a brief break in 1988, when he missed the Blow Up Your Video World Tour to recover from alcoholism.

The band’s statement did not disclose Young’s illness, though musician Mark Gable told Australia’s ABC Radio, “It’s not just that he is unwell, it’s that it is quite serious.”

Despite Young’s absence, AC/DC assured fans it isn’t going anywhere, writing, “The band will continue to make music.”

Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones are together again on the red carpet.

The couple, who decided to step back and evaluate their marriage last June, hit a red carpet event together for the first time together since their break on Tuesday for opening night of The Library at The Public Theater in New York City.

The off-Broadway play, starring 17-year-old Chloë Moretz, concerns the aftermath of a school shooting and is directed by Steven Soderbergh, who directed both Douglas, 69, and Zeta-Jones, 44, in 2000’s Traffic.

The couple looked relaxed and happily posed for photos, with Zeta-Jones in a plunging black dress and sporting blunt bangs.

The outing marks the latest sign of togetherness for the pair, who are parents to son Dylan, 13, and daughter Carys, 11 on Sunday, as they have been steadily working on mending their 13-year marriage.

“It is so easy to just give up,” a longtime family friend tells PEOPLE. “But they wanted to put in the work. I’m really happy for them.”

Oscar Pistorius’s Grueling Testimony: Will Contradictions Doom Him?

04/16/2014 at 12:35 PM EDT

There was a barrage of questions. Followed by another. And another.

For five long days, prosecutor Gerrie Nel relentlessly hammered Oscar Pistorius with blistering questions. Nel – nicknamed “The Pitbull” for his tough reputation and courtroom style – confronted Pistorius with contradictions in his testimony, trying to get him to admit that he intentionally killed girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp after a heated argument.

“She was locked in the bathroom and you armed yourself with the sole purpose of shooting and killing her,” Nel challenged, causing the South African star to tremble as he fumbled for an answer. “Afterwards, you were overcome by what you’d done. That is true. Only because you intentioned to kill her. You realized that.”

At another point, Nel asked the Olympian who he thought was responsible for the incident. “We should blame somebody,” he sarcastically said. “Should we blame Reeva? Who should we blame for the Black Talon rounds that ripped through her body?”

The courtroom has sat in hushed silence throughout the gripping cross-examination. Pistorius, wearing a dark suit each day, often rubbed his temples and choked back tears as he testified. At his feet has been an ever-present vomit bucket.

With his testimony behind him, Pistorius faces an uphill battle for acquittal. Rather than setting the record straight, the Olympian raised even more questions about what really happened in the early morning hours of Valentine’s Day, 2013.

Was The Shooting Accidental?

For the first three weeks of trial, the defense has maintained that Pistorius intentionally shot through the bathroom door at someone he thought was an intruder. That seemed to change during Pistorius’s testimony, when he insisted that the shooting would have been an accident, even if he had shot an intruder.

“It was all an accident?” Nel asked incredulously.

“That’s correct,” responded Pistorious.

“Your defense has now changed from self-defense to involuntary action,” Nel told him. “You can only have one defense, not two.”

Pistorius looked agitated. “I didn’t intend to fire but I fired,” he said. “I pulled the trigger. My firearm was pointing to where I perceived the danger to be. It never crossed my mind that shooting into the toilet would kill someone.”

Why Did Pistorius Yell?

Pistorius claimed to have yelled at the intruder. “I screamed and said ‘get the f— out of my house,’ he testified before dissolving into tears.

Prosecutors believe he shouted those words – not at an intruder, but at Steenkamp. “She was in fear for her life and trying to get away,” said Nel. Noting Steenkamp’s jeans strewn on the bedroom floor, Nel alleged that she had tried to flee her boyfriend.

“It is the state’s case that the jeans were on the floor as Reeva wanted to leave that night,” he said. “You had had an argument.”

Did He Run To The Balcony To Seek Help?

During a police interview, Pistorius claimed to have run to the balcony to scream for help. Nel presented Pistorius with a photo of the bedroom. “What’s wrong with this picture?” he asked.

There was an awkward silence as Pistorius examined the photo, which showed a large tripod fan in front of the door.

“The fan would have blocked me from running out onto the balcony,” he said softly.

“I agree,” Nel shot back. “Because your version was a lie.”

Other Inconsistencies

Pistorius was confronted with several more inconsistencies during his testimony. After he stated that he thought he had seen Steenkamp in the bed before getting up, the prosecution asked how that was possible.

“The room was pitch black,” said Nel. “You couldn’t see a thing.”

Later, Pistorius testified that Steenkamp had last eaten at 7 p.m., more than eight hours before the shooting. An autopsy showed that she had eaten just two or three hours before her death. Pistorius then conceded that she might have gone downstairs and eaten while he was sleeping.

“By your own account, the burglar alarm was on,” said Nel. “It would have been triggered by her leaving the room. Your inconsistencies are devastating.”

A Bittersweet Valentine

The defense had one positive note as Pistorius wrapped up his harrowing week on the stand. After Nel contended that none of the text messages between Pistorius and Steenkamp included the phrase, “I love you,” Pistorius’s defense lawyers handed him a Valentine’s Day card that Steenkamp had written.

Pistorius read it aloud with a clear, loud voice. “Roses are red, violets are blue. I think today is a good day to tell you that I love you.”
