Angelina Jolie Takes Zahara & Shiloh To Ethiopia

Angelina Jolie‘s recent goodwill mission in Africa was also a homecoming for her 4-year-old daughter Zahara.

The 34-year-old Tomb Raider star took a side trip during a recent goodwill mission to Kenya, flying to Ethiopia for two days with her daughters Zahara, 4, and Shiloh, 3. This marked the first time ‘Z’ returned to her home country since being adopted four years ago.

One of the reasons for the trip was to find a suitable location to build a TB and AIDS clinic in Zahara’s name, PEOPLE reports. Zahara’s big brother Maddox, 8, has an organization in his name in Cambodia that assists ill and underprivileged kids.

Goodwill Ambassador Jolie also visited Dabaab Refugee Camp, home to nearly 300,000 Somali refugees, with nearly 7,000 more arriving every month due to the food crisis in Somalia where close to 3.6 million people are starving.

Jennie Garth & Girls Cover Cookie

We loved her as the impossibly perfect Kelly Taylor in Beverly Hills, 90210. Now we can’t get enough of Jennie Garth, the self-titled “homebody” who suffers from mommy brain just like the rest of us! The 37-year-old mother of three daughters – Luca, 12; Lola, 6; and Fiona, 3 – sat down with Cookie to discuss becoming a young mom in unforgiving Hollywood, how she struggles with disciplining her girls who span 12 years in age, and how she and hubby Peter Facinelli make it work amidst his red-hot career.

On providing a close family environment for her girls: “We’re always together, maybe to a fault! We like to be together, I think more than most child psychologists or even my mother would say is healthy. But there will come a time when they don’t want to be with me, so I’m reveling in it now.”

On her struggles to discipline three girls who span 12 years in age: “I had to give my 6-year-old four time-outs two days ago. She kept hitting. I don’t spank, though sometimes I think, These time-outs aren’t working! What’s next? [I aim for] consistency, and not making idle threats. They have to know there are consequences for violence, name-calling, and not doing household chores. They’re all in such different places, but all those places require boundaries.”

On how pregnancy was a career-killer back in her day: “There weren’t many actresses willing to have kids, because they thought it would jeopardize their career or their desirability. There was an actress on an Aaron Spelling soap opera who got sued for getting pregnant. I got pregnant right after her, while I was on an Aaron Spelling show. But I knew he’d be supportive; [Beverly Hills, 90210 was such a hit] he couldn’t be anything but.”

    Jennifer Hudson: “No Words Can Describe” Motherhood

    Jennifer Hudson, new mom to 5-week-old David Daniel Otunga Jr., says motherhood is amazing, but admits she can’t stop worrying:

    Oh my God, I’m somebody’s mother now,” the 28-year-old Academy Award-winning actress said on Oprah Winfrey’s block party show. “It is the best feeling in the world, no words can describe it. But one thing they don’t warn you about is, like, how your nerves just shoot up… Now I worry about every single thing: ‘Oh my God, what would happen if I sit him here, then he could fall and this could happen and that could happen.’ I worry like crazy.”

    Not only has David Jr. brought new life into the Hudson family, Jennifer’s sister Julia is reportedly expecting a baby! Julia’s 7-year-old son Julian was tragically killed last October along with their mother and brother.

    A source close to the sisters said, “When Julia found out, she called Jennifer right away. They’re both ecstatic. They know they can never replace Julian, but this new baby has brought the family a lot of joy.”

    Big congrats to the Hudson family!
