In recent celebrity news, Blake Shelton is loving the time he gets to spend with the three sons of his girlfriend, Gwen Stefani. According to UsMagazine.com, Shelton says “At this point in my life, I kind of had put [having kids] as like, ‘Well, that wasn’t meant to be.’ Then all of a sudden it happens — one way or another — and it’s like, ‘Wow, I really missed out on a lot.’” Stefani shares her three children with her celebrity ex, Gavin Rossdale. It seems as if Shelton wouldn’t be opposed to having celebrity kids of his own with Stefani. But, a source shared with Us Weekly that, “Their feeling is if it happens naturally, great. But they’ve decided to not focus on it for the time being.” Nevertheless, Shelton is thoroughly enjoying having Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo Rossdale as a part of his life.

In celebrity news, Blake Shelton is relishing having his girlfriend’s kids around. How do you know if your partner will be good with kids?


Cupid’s Advice:

It is usually pretty clear that if your partner loves you and is just a caring and kind person in general, then they will be good with kids. But, here are some specific aspects that can really make it clear that your partner will be the perfect parent:

1. They take care of you when you’re sick: Remember last year when you were in bed with the flu? Did your partner make you soup and hot tea while they rubbed your back? If they did, then that is absolutely wonderful and that shows that if you two care for children together, they will be just as caring to them.

2. They are playful: It is always a good sign if your partner knows how to be fun and entertain children. It is even better if they exhibit the perfect amount of playfulness and seriousness throughout your relationship so you know that they have the ability to do the same with children.

But if your partner has tasted the responsibility of watching after another living being, then that can attribute to them knowing how to handle the responsibility of having a kid. Overall, if your partner loves you and they truly want to care for children with you, they will be an amazing parent.

In celebrity news, Britney Spears is angry at her ex for asking for additional child support. What are some ways to keep legal battles from affecting your kids?


Cupid’s Advice:

After a split, some issues may arise regarding legal matters. You and your ex may disagree on some aspects. Although, it is important to be mature and handle these disputes privately so that it doesn’t affect your children. We all know that guaranteeing your children’s happiness is the biggest priority. Here are some tips on how to keep these legal battles from negatively affecting your kids:

1. Talk to them: If your kids are older, they most certainly will not be blind to the situation at hand. They may overhear phone call conversations and such. Even though you are trying to keep them out of it, older kids should still be informed so they feel involved and loved. Be honest and explain to them what is going on but assure them that everything is going to be okay.

2. Don’t badmouth your ex partner: The last thing you want to do is talk negatively about your kid’s other parent in front of them. You never want to make it seem like there is a good guy and a bad guy because that will just create an abundance of stress on your children. Even if you feel as if your ex is a horrible person, keep it to yourself and allow your children to form their own opinions by the way that they treat them.

3. Stay collected: One of the worst things you can do is set a bad example of freaking out in front of your children. Even though the legal situation you are going through may be frustrating, try your best to still be the amazing parent that you are to your children.

Jennifer Hudson could be facing a long and messy custody battle. In the latest celebrity newsUsMagazine.com reports the American Idol alum and current coach on The Voice is fighting her ex-fiancé David Ortunga for primary guardianship of their son, David Jr. According to Ortunga’s attorney, he has been working to settle an “amicable parenting agreement with Ms. Hudson for several weeks now,” but the estranged couple has not been able to finalize it. Hudson has previously been granted a petition for Order of Protection against her celebrity ex, citing protection for herself and for her son. The pair announced their celebrity break-up earlier this year.

This celebrity break-up seems to be getting very messy. What are some things to consider when you’re splitting with your significant other and you have a child in the picture?

Cupid’s Advice:

Sometimes, relationships fizzle out. While a split is always complicated and full of emotions, if you and your estranged partner have a child, there are even higher chances for issues to arise. If you are breaking up with your partner and you share kids, Cupid has some things for you to consider:

1. Be ready to co-parent: You and your partner have a shared responsibility for your kids. If you are splitting up, you should figure out how you’d like to continue raising your kids. Ideally, this should be done without the help of layers and a court. Figure out a system that works best for your lives and stick to it.

2. Adopt a “kids come first” mindset: Establishing this mentality is important after a split. Regardless of the differences between you and your partner, it’s important to remember that your kids come first. This will help you in times of conflict and stress. Sometimes, you’ll both have to swallow your pride and put on a happy face for the sake of your kids’ well-being.

3. Keep it professional: Never badmouth your partner in front of your kids. No matter the situation, it’s important to voice your negative opinions in private. By projecting your feelings about your ex onto your kids, you could cause long-term emotional issues for them. Let your children form their own opinions and conclusions, and make sure you’re there for them when they need you.
