Jenelle Evans: I Have Too Many Kids!

Have you ever noticed that even though Jenelle Evans has three children now, she's never seemed particularly maternal?

Sure, she's managed to keep Kaiser and Ensley alive, and they seem like healthy, reasonably happy kids, but we've never really seen Jenelle enjoying being a mother, you know?

After Jace was born, she took off night after night because she thought that since he was asleep, he'd be fine — which, as you surely know, is not how babies work.

With Kaiser, she seems overwhelmed and annoyed with him most of the time, and we really haven't seen much footage of her with Ensley to be able to get a feel for how she is with her …

Until now!

In a new sneak peek for tomorrow night's episode of Teen Mom 2, we see Jenelle talk to a producer about how life is with so many children.

(At this point, she still has random visitation with Jace, but Kaiser and Ensley, as well as David's daughter, Maryssa, live with her.)

As the clip begins, she explains that David took Kaiser and Maryssa to school while she sorts out things around the house and takes care of Ensely.

Which means that she runs around upstairs while Ensley chills in a baby swing down in the living room.

A producer asks her how it's been to get moved into their new house while caring for so many kids, and Jenelle doesn't hold back.

"It's been pretty hectic," she says. "I don't know, I'm so confused about life right now. I can't think straight."

The producer suggests that it's all too much, and she doesn't argue.

"I mean, I'm tired by the end of the day, but when I wake up I'm happy that I'm in this house," she explains.

When they were in their old house, she couldn't stop thinking about how much she disliked it, and how she just wanted to "be on my land, away from people, away from traffic."

She then goes to get the baby so she can feed her a bottle, and she tells the producer "See, when I try to get things done I have to stop so I can feed Ensley."

Because how dare that newborn not get up and get her own dang snack, right?

When she's asked if she ever gets any time for herself, she says that she's able to shower and eat and sleep, "but that's about it."

But honestly, it sounds like she's got way more time to herself than many moms — being able to shower and sleep after just giving birth are pretty big luxuries, actually.

While Jenelle doesn't drop any major bombs in this sneak peek, the interesting thing is her demeanor.

It's looks like she's more than just exhausted.

Watch Jenelle and the adorable Ensley in action in the video below:

Kim Kardashian: Having Kids Totally Changed Me!

When you think of Kim Kardashian, odds are you don’t think of heartwarming essays on motherhood.

You probably just think of stuff like butts and Ray J and 72-day marriages.

And that’s fair — Kim has been famous for a very, very long time now, and it makes sense that there are certain things about her that stick out more than others.

But just because you may think of Kim as more of a sex symbol and less of a Mother of the Year doesn’t mean that she doesn’t have strong feelings when it comes to her kids.

And, lucky for us and our tender hearts, she’s revealing those feelings in a new post she made to her website!

Yesterday was apparently National Son’s and Daughter’s Day — don’t feel bad if you didn’t know, who can keep up with all the “holidays” anymore?

But Kim did know, and to celebrate the special day, she wrote about her own son and daughter.

“Having kids changes everything — in the best way possible,” she wrote. “Thank you to my babies for choosing me and allowing me to be your mom.”

Sweet, right? But hold on, it just gets better!

“I have such an unconditional love for my kids,” she continued. “No matter what, I will always love them and support them in anything they choose to do in life.”

She also wrote that “My family was so close growing up; now that I’m a mom, I understand the bond my mom and dad felt with us.”

Kim admitted that “There can be ups and downs with kids,” but “no matter what, I always learn so much from them.”

“Being a mom is the most important job I have. Each day, I learn something new from them and I’m so blessed to be able to be present for all of life’s little moments.”

To wrap things up, she explained for her, having kids meant that her “priorities changed.”

“It’s not about me anymore. After North was born, I wanted to be there and make memories together that we would share forever.”

Having children “really makes you realize how precious life is,” she said.

“They both give me a whole new perspective and inspire me to be the best version of myself.”

Aww, Kimmy!

Whether you love her or hate her — though let’s be real, you probably don’t so much hate her as you love to hate her — it’s obvious that she really has changed since becoming a mother.

And although it’s not like she was wild before having kids, it’s definitely been a change for the better.

She seems calmer now, and a little less concerned with what the masses think of her.

She also seems like she’s having a better time with life in general.

And since she’s expecting her third child via surrogate early next year, it’s probably good that motherhood suits her so well!

Proud of you, Kim!

Teen Mom & Teen Mom 2: Just How Many Kids Are There!?

The girls from Teen Mom & Teen Mom 2 became famous because of their babies, welcomed into the world at a very young age.

You could say they were 16 and Pregnant. All of them.

For better or worse, they persevered and went on and (in many cases) had additional ones! At parenting, some have fared well.

Others, fared … not quite as overwhelmingly well.

Perhaps it's fitting that Jenelle Evans welcomed her third child one day before Chelsea Houska had her second, as these girls run the gamut!

We're not here to be critical (that's what Instagram is for). We're just here to break down the eight stars and their unconventional families.

Unconventional, but beautiful and loving. <3

1. Sophia (Farrah Abraham and Derek Underwood)

Farrah abraham and sophia in makeup
Oh, Soph. Unlike many of her Teen Mom tot counterparts, Sophia lives the life of luxury, thanks to her mother, non-porn star Farrah Abraham. Seriously, the younger Abraham has her own clothing line, dabbles in child modeling, hires and fires people for her mom (you can’t make that up), and receives $ 900 when the tooth fairy pays a visit. (Sophia’s father, Derek, died in a car accident while Farrah was still pregnant; Derek’s grave is the site of many memorable TM scenes, which some believe to be shamelessly orchestrated by Farrah). Sophia is going to be a handful when she grows up at this rate … the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree as they say.

2. Leah (Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley)

Amber and leah shirley
Amber Portwood is a rarity in the world of Teen Mom, as the OG has not birthed another child after daughter Leah. Probably for the best, given her devastating drug problems; Amber served a year and a half in prison. Leah’s dad, Gary Shirley, has been there for her the entire time, and she seems to be well-adjusted as both Gary and Amber move on with their lives and new relationships – even if hers (with Matt Baier) has involved plenty of tension.

3. Carly (Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra)

Catelynn and tyler teen mom
When step-siblings turned lovers Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra made the decision to give their baby Carly up for adoption, it marked one of the most touching, bittersweet moments in reality TV history. What made it all the more incredible was that they stayed involved in her life – albeit with some bumps in the road – ever since, then got married and had another baby together years later. Which they kept.

4. Nova (Catelynn and Tyler)

Tyler baltierra catelynn lowell novalee hike pic
Tyler and Catelynn kept and are raising Novalee Reign Baltierra together, not that it’s been easy. Catelynn’s severe self-esteem issues and post-partum depression have been a major storyline for the couple in recent seasons ofTeen Mom: OG.

5. Bentley (Maci Bookout and Ryan Edwards)

Maci bookout and bentley edwards
Bentley, Maci Bookout and Ryan Edwards’ first and only child, is much bigger than this these days, and the level of happiness in their lives has also grown expontentially. After a relationship with Edwards that was among the franchise’s most disastrous, Maci met and married Taylor McKinney, who fathered two additional kids with Maci and has been an incredible stepdad to Bentley. Even Ryan has moved on and gotten engaged … miracles do happen in this world.

6. Jayde (Maci and Taylor McKinney)

Maci and Taylor McKinney’s first child together was a daughter, Jayde.

John Wall after signing max deal: ‘My kids’ kids’ kids should be fine’

John Wall will receive $ 207 million over the next six years from the Washington Wizards after signing a maximum extension this summer.

Not only did that pact secure the immediate future of the Wizards as a franchise, but that money will set up Wall's family for generations to come – something he wanted to ensure as quickly as possible.

"My kids' kids' kids should be fine," Wall told Michael Lee of The Vertical.

Wall could have gained another $ 50 million if he waited to sign next summer, but he wasn't willing to gamble. The star point guard would have needed to qualify for the All-NBA team to earn the super-max extension, and Wall didn't want to leave his fate in the hands of voters who have only recognized him once over his seven-year career.

"I only made All-NBA this year. All-NBA is not guaranteed," Wall said. "You've got six, seven guys that's guaranteed All-NBA every year because of how dominant they are. Other guys, it's like there are a couple of spots that's open and you never know what can happen.

“I never wanted to chance it, so I was like, why?”

Wall was signed to what was previously the maximum contract in 2015, but the salary cap has nearly doubled since. His four-year, $ 170-million deal will carry him over until 2022-23, when he will earn $ 46.9 million as a 31-year-old.

The four-time All-Star averaged 23.1 points, 10.7 assists, and two steals last season while leading the Wizards to the fourth seed.

Megan Fox Shares Rare Picture of Kids: Cuteness. Overload!

For years, Megan Fox was criticized for showing too much skin in various magazine pictorials.

But not even the harshest critic could accuse this actress of showing off her kids on too many occasions.

As much as perhaps as big-time star in Hollywood, Fox has kept her three children very far away from the spotlight, rarely sharing an image of them online and certainly never selling any images to any supermarket tabloids.

We’re guessing Fox would prefer to star in another Michael Bay-directed Transformers movie again than even contemplate doing such a thing.

Late Monday, however, the beautiful brunette shocked her Instagram followers by posting a snapshot of her three sons, all of whom she procreated along with Brian Austin Green.

Fox did so via a gorgeous collage that features one Polaroid of herself; one of four-year old Noah; one of three-year old Bodhi; and one of 11-month old Journey.

It may be of interest to some to note a couple things:

1. Green is holding the youngest of the three boys in one of the pictures.

2. Noah is wearing a Princess Elsa dress in honor of Frozen. (Why do we feel like some folks on the Internet will find fault with this?)

Fox did not include a caption with the precious portrait.

Fox and Green almost never share pictures such as these.

However, they will occasionally post on social media in order to gush about their brood.

In November 2016, for example, Green returned from a seven-month Instagram hiatus to say nice things about his kids and to also compliment Fox in the process.

“My wife makes beautiful babies,” he wrote at the time, referring specifically to little Journey.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles star filed for divorce from her husband of five years in August 2015.

However, they reconciled the following year … just before Fox gave birth to Journey.

Even during their split, it was clear Green and Fox were still hanging out and getting along, considering Fox announced her pregnancy only a few months after the couple’s supposed break-up.

In other words:

Just like any two people who end a romance, but still have feelings for each other and/or who got very drunk one night in each other’s presence, the stars had unprotected sex during an alleged break and… bam!

Journey was born about nine months later.

But it’s all worked out for the best.

Fox and Green seem very happy as a couple and these three adorable kids have a stable, healthy household in which to grow up.

HOORAY!

Leah Messer: I’d Put My Husband Ahead of My Kids (If I Had One)!

Leah Messer used to be one of the hottest messes in Teen Mom history.

She was filmed nodding off while holding a baby, she lost custody of her twins because she couldn’t manage to get them to school on time …

It was bad. Really bad.

But after her trip to rehab a couple of years ago, she seems to be doing much better.

These days, at long last, it finally seems like she’s starting to get her life together.

And that’s why it’s extra odd that she chose to make such a controversial, concerning statement on Instagram.

Last night, Leah reposted a quote from Christian life coach about marriage and children.

“Ladies,” the quote read, “in marriage your husband comes first, then your child. As a single mother who isn’t married, of course you shouldn’t put any man before them, but that changes when you vow to be one with a man.”

“He comes first as your partner, provider and protector.”

And before you ask, no, this quote didn’t come from a Duggar woman’s social media page. This is actually from Leah.

In the caption, she explicitly stated that she agrees with this sentiment … and her followers were not pleased.

“This is the stupidest thing I have heard,” one of them wrote. “Your kids always come first, you married someone to start a life not to be their slave.”

“What century do you live in because a man is NOT the only provider in a household in today’s world. And if he doesn’t care about his kids and more about his needs and wants then honey you married the wrong man.”

“Nope, kids FIRST,” another person told her. “I am actually surprised that you think a husband should come first …”

“Stupid! You have too many baby daddies to pull this!” another naysayer wrote.

One of her followers even told her “You’re not a good role model for our 3 girls if you think that way. We don’t live in the year 1800 anymore. Take responsibility for your own be a strong woman.”

And that’s just a small sample of the kind of criticism she’s been getting — so far, the post has over 2,000 comments, most of them from people who disagree with her here.

And honestly, it really is surprising that she feels this way.

It makes sense that it’s important to make marriage a priority instead of placing 100% of your time and energy into your children, but Leah’s a single mother.

If she does remarry, of course she has to put her kids first, right?

Not to mention any quote about depending on a man to be the “provider and protector” sends up red flags, especially because Leah has been providing for her children for many years now.

It’s actually hard to imagine any relationship she’d be in in which she wasn’t the main provider, what with all that Teen Mom money.

Then there’s the fact that in her previous marriages, her husbands didn’t come first, nor did her children — she actually put herself first.

Remember, she cheated on both Corey Simms and Jeremy Calvert.

We’re sure she’s grown since then though, and maybe she’s just interested in trying out new tactics for her next marriage, whenever that may be.

But just be careful, girl.

Baylor’s Rhule: Current roster is ‘fastest group of kids I’ve been around’

Matt Rhule has been involved in college football since his first year as a linebacker at Penn State in 1994, so for a group of players to earn the title of "fastest" he's ever been around is quite the compliment.

The first-year Baylor head coach joined SiriusXM College Sports Nation on Wednesday to talk about the upcoming season for the Bears, and he had some very high praise for his team's speed, according to Shehan Jeyarajah of Big 12 Diehards.

“At Temple, we had great fullbacks, tailbacks, an NFL quarterback and we were pro-style,” Rhule said. “At Baylor we walked into a different situation. We did our timing last week and we had non-scholarship players that ran in the 4.3s. It’s the fastest group of kids I’ve been around.”

Heading that group of speed threats is last year’s leading rusher Terence Williams, along with JaMycal Hasty, who will be looking to build off of a productive freshman season in which he rushed for 623 yards and three touchdowns.

Rhule also has a young group of receivers in Chris Platt, Blake Lynch, and Pooh Stricklin who will be looking to fill the voids left by last year’s primary targets KD Cannon and Ishmael Zamora.

“I never looked at it as my offense,” Rhule said. “I’m hopefully a smart enough guy to utilize the players we have, utilize the talent we have.

“I’m not stubborn enough to say I’m going to play with four tight ends on the field when I have all that speed.”

Say What? Chicago Schools Plan To Withhold HS Diplomas From Kids Without Solid Post-Grad Plans

Chicago Schools To Deny Diplomas To Students Without Post-Grad Plans

In the next three years, making passing grades won’t be enough to earn a high school diploma from Chicago Public Schools.

Now, kids will have to provide proof that they either have acceptance to college, a job lined-up, enrollment in a formal gap-year program, or enlistment in the military to cross the stage and turn their tassels.

According to The Washington Post, Mayor Rahm Emanuel thinks it’s pertinent to setting children on a path to a successful future.

“We are going to help kids have a plan, because they’re going to need it to succeed. You cannot have kids think that 12th grade is done.”

However, there is currently a shortage of counselors in the school system to even help high school students choose a set path after high school. Furthermore…forcing kids to prove their plan may lead kids with fewer resources and less support to simply drop out, since they won’t be awarded a diploma in the first place. The plan also doesn’t take into consideration the kids living in impoverished areas with few job opportunities. Also, everyone simply doesn’t get accepted to college right away.

President of the Chicago Teachers Union Karen Lewis says that the idea is empty and ultimately strips some kids of their accomplishments:

“It sounds good on paper, but the problem is that when you’ve cut the number of counselors in schools, when you’ve cut the kind of services that kids need, who is going to do this work? If you’ve done the work to earn a diploma, then you should get a diploma. Because if you don’t, you are forcing kids into more poverty.”

Hmm, what do you think? Some kids have it sewn up after school, but it takes many people a bit of time to figure out what to do after graduating. Is it fair to force everyone to prove their plans to validate their degrees?
