Name: Sam J. Sheen
Date of Birth: March 9, 2004
Parents: Denise Richards & Charlie Sheen
Siblings: Lola Rose (06/05), half-sister Cassandra Jade Estevez (12/84) and half-brothers, twins Bob & Max (03/09)
– Denise had originally planned to deliver Sam via c-section on March 10, ten days before her March 20 due date to coincide with then-husband Charlie Sheen’s filming hiatus, saying “It was convenient. We like to plan things.” Sam had different plans however, and arrived on the 9th in Los Angeles.
– The name Sam was chosen after dad Charlie’s former cat: “Charlie really wanted Sam (as a name for our daughter) and I dreamed of one day naming a girl Sophia – something feminine – or Emma. She’s named after the cat. We don’t have the cat anymore, though.”
“Sami starts kindergarten, which I cannot believe, in a couple of weeks. I’m so sad about it. I can’t believe how fast five years have gone. I’m very proud of her and very happy, but from here on out she’s in school.” – Denise, on her daughter heading to school.
“I think it was a good thing to teach my kids because they saw that I was nervous. Sammy, my oldest daughter, saw me on Good Morning America and when I came back from New York, she said, ‘Are you nervous to do Dancing With The Stars?’ And I told her I was and she said, ‘Then why are you doing it?’ I thought it was such a great lesson to teach my kids, that just because I’m nervous doesn’t mean I shouldn’t do something.” – Denise, on teaching a valuable lesson to her daughters.

Academy Award nominated actor Don Cheadle is well-known for not only his great acting skills, but for his many other projects behind the scenes, including producer, author, and philanthropist. Cheadle is also a father, and in an interview with Parade, Cheadle dishes on his relationship with partner Bridgid Coulter and spending time with the couples’ two daughters, Ayana Tai, (1995) and Imani (1997.)
Of his 15+ year partnership with Coulter, the actor says, “I am somebody who really does want to make sure my relationship stays together and that I am there for the important parts of my kids’ life.” He then adds of his children, “There’s going to be a time where they’ll be like, ‘Please go away for three months and do a movie.’ But while they’re still like, ‘Daddy, I want you here,’ then I want to deliver for them. So it’s a juggling act. It’s really tricky. But it’s worth everything it takes.”
The Hotel Rwanda actor currently has two films wrapped, including Iron Man 2 which hits theaters May 7, 2010.

Brooke Shields has had a busy career with many, very public highs and lows. The actress has gone from a young child, to a wife and mother in the media spotlight, including all of the broken hearts and friendships in between, and a tumultuous relationship with her alcoholic mother. Speaking with Ladies Home Journal, Shields revealed details on her relationship with her mother, who is now suffering from Alzheimer’s, as well as her views on being in show business at 44, how she balances her career with raising her two young daughters, Rowan, 6 and Grier, 3, and a bit of insight on some of her other past relationships.
On her relationship with her mother: “Her approval is still so important to me. I’ll see her and think, She’s going to say my hair’s too dark. She’s going to ask if I’ve gained weight. I might as well be 10. I’m confident in my own mothering, I’ve been making all my own decisions for a long time, but after all these years, I want my mom.”

Kourtney and her sisters Kim and Khloe are featured on the covers of a couple of the tabloids this week along with stories that all three are in the midst of romantic turmoil – claims which the Kardashian sisters are quick to deny.
“Where do they get this stuff?” Kim blogged. “My sisters and I have never been happier…. I want you guys to know that these stories are completely fabricated.”
