Maddie Ziegler

Diamonds Are A Girl's BFF

... On Her 13th Bday

10/5/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1002-maddie-ziegler-birthday-dinner-INSTAGRAM-01Maddie Ziegler just turned 13 and if you're wondering what a kid who's starred in 3 Sia music videos and a reality show gets when they reach teen-hood ... ice, as in a pair of diamond stud earrings.

Ziegler's family surprised the "Dance Moms" star with a birthday party at their family's favorite hibachi restaurant. We're told the youngster was punked by her family and friends, who all profusely apologized saying they couldn't make it out for her birthday.

But when Maddie showed up at the restaurant ... her BFFs Nia, Kendall and Mackenzie from the show all yelled SURPRISE!!! We're told 2 dozen people were in on it, even Abby Lee Miller.

After the group sang happy birthday, they took down a cheesecake. And to top it all off she also got what every other 13-year-old out there wants ... an Apple Watch. 

Next stop for the youngsters ... L.A., where they'll be filming the new season of "Dance Moms."

When we were 13, we ate pizza and played Nintendo.

Celebrate New Jackson Reality Show

10/3/2015 6:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's kids, along with other members of the family brood, showed up at a Hollywood sports bar to celebrate the premiere of the new reality show, The Jacksons: Next Generations."

We got Taryll, TJ, Taj, Paris, Prince, Blanket and Donte, in that order in the video.  

It seems Paris is hooked up with the guy she's with, and it's interesting to see 13-year-old Blanket, who has flown under the radar since her dad's death.

The show airs on Lifetime.

10/1/2015 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1001-kristen-cavalleri-splash-01Kristin Cavallari can scarf down all the frozen yogurt she wants because pregnancy cravings look really good on the expectant hot mom.

The former 'Hills' star is close to popping out her third kid with Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler. Kristin's about about 7-8 months along, but was still in MILF mode when she stepped out in West Hollywood for froyo with her son.

The Bears might be 0-3 on the season, but Kristin's still winning.


Naya Rivera

Baby #1 Is a

True Outlaw

9/30/2015 10:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0930-naya-rivera-ryan-getty-01"Glee" star Naya Rivera and husband Ryan Dorsey might be huge Clint Eastwood fans because their first baby has a definite tie to the ole gunslinger. 

Naya and the "Justified" star just had their first kid -- a boy born on September 17 -- and according to the birth certificate ... named him Josey.

Josey Hollis Dorsey ... in full, came into the world at the ever popular celeb birth spot  -- Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A.

The name doesn't appear to have any family significance for Ryan or Naya ... so, the most famous male Josey we can think of is ... Clint's character in "The Outlaw Josey Wales." 



Julie Bowen

Hell Yeah, I Talk Birds & Bees

... With 'Mod Fam' Kids

9/30/2015 6:44 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Believe it ... TV parents can absolutely teach real-life parents a thing or two -- which Julie Bowen proved by dropping serious relationship knowledge. 

The "Modern Family" hot mom was bolting out of BOA Steakhouse on Sunset and we asked if she has, y'know ... "the talk" with her TV kids. After all, 2 of 'em are at that age -- Nolan Gould is 16, and Ariel Winter is 17.

Sarah Hyland is 24, but what 20-something couldn't use some sex advice, right?

Julie's answer is funny, simple, and awesome. In a nutshell ... keep it clean, kids.

Kim and Kanye

Baby Yeezus

To Be Born on Birthday of Baby Jesus

9/29/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0928_kim_kanye_christmas_baby_compositeKim Kardashian's due date is December 25, 2015 ... seriously.

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ, doctors have back timed the date of conception and they've been told their son will be born on Xmas day.

Obviously, the due date is always a little up in the air, but Xmas is the likely date, and here's why. We're told Kim has a condition where the placenta grows too deeply into the uterus, which could be dangerous.  

We're told as of now, doctors are planning on a natural birth on Xmas day, but a c-section might be necessary that day for safety reasons, if she doesn't give birth beforehand. 

And, we're told, Kim and Kanye have already booked a Deluxe Maternity Suite at Cedars-Sinai in L.A.

As for the baby's name ... they've agreed she's Royalty Brown -- no middle name.

And we're told Chris will pay Nia $2,500 a month. He's also paying her $15k in back support.

Chris also has to pay for Royalty's schooling, health insurance, medical bills and nannies.

And we're told the drug test Chris submitted to during the custody hearing has come back positive for both weed and codeine, but we're told he had a prescription for both.

The settlement is subject to a judge's approval.

9/26/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0925-t-boz-tmz-01T-Boz is about to be a mom two-times-over because she's adopting a kid.

According to legal docs obtained by TMZ, the TLC member spilled the beans while getting grilled by an attorney in a $40 million lawsuit over a TLC movie.

Boz was asked if she had any communication regarding the lawsuit with group-mate Chilli and she said their only contact was when they shared the baby news.

This will be T-Boz's second kid ... the 45-year-old has a 14-year-old daughter with rapper Mack 10

T-Boz told Larry King in 2012 -- after the earthquake-- she was interested in adopting a child from Haiti. 


Rich Homie Quan

Smoking Video

Triggers Child Services Investigation

9/25/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rich Homie Quan learned not to wave a red flag in front of a bull, because he just got gored ... Child Protective Services is now on his case for smoking what looks like a blunt in front of his kid.  

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Georgia authorities saw the video of RHQ's 1-year-old on his lap as he puffed away, and they were alarmed. Child Protective Services and the Fulton County Police Department have now teamed up to investigate.

Our sources say CPS wants to sit down with Quan and ask a slew of questions ... notably, what was he smoking? They also want to know if this was a one-off or his standard operating procedure. 

Law enforcement tells us the probe goes beyond RHQ's fitness as a parent ... he could face possible criminal charges, including endangering a child and reckless behavior.

Wins Custody Hearing

9/24/2015 4:56 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0924_Morena-Baccarin_TMZMorena Baccarin just won big in her custody hearing ... and now her kid will be shacking up with her in NYC.

A judge made the ruling in LA on Thursday -- Baccarin's one-year-old son she had with estranged husband Austin Chick will mainly live in NY with his mom. However, the couple will split joint custody. 

Baccarin's attorney Samantha Spector tells TMZ ... Chick will still be able to visit his son once a month for 8 days, but he has to give a 15-day-notice before making a trip.

Chick will be able to bring his son back to LA every two months for an 8 day visit. We're told Baccarin will have to foot the travel expenses, but only has to pay for coach seats, no first class. 

TMZ broke the story ... Morena's one-year-old will have a sibling soon, she's pregnant with "Gotham" co-star Ben McKenzie's child. 


Crashes Son's TMZ Moment ...

I'll Approve His Questions

9/23/2015 4:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Shareef O'Neal's biology DOES bother him ... 'cause his dad Shaq totally crashed his moment in the spotlight, but it was all in the name of fatherly love.

We were at The Grove in L.A. when we ran into Shareef (hard to miss the kid at 6'8) and asked him some questions about the life of a 16-year-old sports phenom.

That's when Shareef's mom Shaunie alerted our camera guy that a certain 7'2, 300 and whatever pound guy wanted to make sure all of our questions were up to snuff.

Check it out -- our guy is trying to get Shaq's stamp of approval is just as entertaining as Shareef.

Rich Homie Quan

Getting High with His Baby?

9/23/2015 7:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rich Homie Quan just guaranteed he will NOT be getting a father of the year award, but he might be getting a visit from child protective services -- after lighting up with his 1-year-old on his lap.

Quan wasn't even trying to hide it -- he was smoking what looks like a joint while chilling with little Royal Lamar ... ON SNAPCHAT!

The rapper says something to the camera -- after blowing out a huge puff of smoke -- but it's hard to make out. We suspect he might be kinda high.

It's possible he's not smoking marijuana, and it's really a hand-rolled cigarette. But it's not like that would be any better for the toddler.

0922-kanye-northwest-splashKanye West spent an afternoon with daughter North -- who was rocking a natural 'do -- and apparently does not share her father's affinity for footwear. 

Baby Boosts would make a killing ... just saying.
