Nicole Murphy rocked the red carpet with four of her children – daughters Shayne, 15, Zola, 10, Bella, 8, and son, Myles, 17 – at the Los Angeles premiere of The Karate Kid yesterday (June 7).
Nicole and her ex-husband Eddie Murphy are also parents to 20-year-old daughter Bria.
A source recently revealed that Nicole is responsible for reuniting Eddie with his youngest daughter, Angel Iris Murphy Brown:
Eddie’s ex-wife Nicole helped them reconcile their issues. Angel is Eddie’s youngest child, and Nicole wants her children to know her. That helped Eddie to come around and get past all the animosity he had towards Mel.”

Former N’sync singer Joey Fatone is following the footsteps of many celebrities and adding family-friendly fare to his resume, in an effort to get his kids excited about his work. He recently guest-starred on an episode of Disney Channel’s Imagination Movers, where he played a baseball player, Joey Giordano. Time Out New York sat down with Joey to discuss the role, and his two children: Briahna, 9 and Kloey, 4 months.
On teaching his children about his New York City roots: “I’ve brought Brihana back to the city. There’s a pizza place in Brooklyn she loves called Spumoni Gardens. She keeps asking if she’s from New York or from Florida. I tell her she’s a Floridian, but she’s kind of a New Yorker because I keep bringing her back to taste all the food and culture, and we still have family living in Staten Island.”
On taking on new roles that are appealing to children: “It was a lot of fun and it changes things up a bit. Also, I want my kids to be excited about what I do. My daughter doesn’t care about what I did with ‘N Sync, but once I did Hannah Montana about a year ago, I became God to her. My nephew loves Imagination Movers, so it’s going to be cool for him to see me on that.”
On being the “third kid” in his family: “I’m the third kid, definitely. I’m kind of a big kid at heart. I’m a fun guy, I always want to take my daughter to theme parks and stuff like that.”

Kelly Preston‘s mom, Linda Carlson, tells Us that she “burst into tears” when she heard her daughter is pregnant with her third child. “I cried so hard I couldn’t see straight, just bawled my eyes out,” says the proud grandmother. “Because I’ve been so worried about her! When they’re that unhappy. I could cry right now remembering.”
Kelly, 47, and her husband John Travolta, 56, lost their son, Jett, after he suffered a seizure in January 2009. Following his death, Kelly and John were extorted by the Bahamian paramedics who first responded to the call.
Carlson says that the baby has brought a new sense of hope and joy to the family.
We are over the moon I’ve been praying that this would happen. Especially since Jett’s death. Anything to get them out of their sorrow. I know Kelly has been longing for another baby. She just loves babies! So do I. I just can’t wait for this child to arrive. It’s taken them out of such deep grief and made them able to focus on new life. It just couldn’t come at a better time.”

What a cutie! Celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis and her adorable 2-year-old daughter Jade Marie attended the 4th annual Kidstock Music and Arts Festival in Beverly Hills on Sunday (June 6). Jade’s father is Giada’s husband of 7 years, fashion designer Todd Thompson.
The 39-year-old Everyday Italian star says that motherhood has changed her for the better.
Well, it definitely changed my workload. Ha! But at the end of the day, I think I was more selfish before I had Jade. Kids help you become more compassionate. I joined the charity Oxfam, which helps to improve kids’ lives all over the world. I realized that I wanted this world to be better. I stopped thinking of just my own mortality; I started thinking about the life we’re leaving for someone else.”
