Reese Witherspoon usually keeps her personal life out of the public eye, but in the latest celebrity news, the actress is opening up about her past. In an interview with O Magazine, Witherspoon sat down with Oprah Winfrey and Mindy Kaling in a celebrity interview to talk about their new movie, A Wrinkle in Time, reports EOnline.com. The women also talked about the current state of Hollywood, the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements, and Witherspoon briefly delved into her past abusive relationship. When she finally ended the relationship, Witherspoon said, “It changed who I was on a cellular level, the fact that I stood up for myself. It’s part of the reason I can stand up and say, ‘Yes, I’m ambitious.’ Because someone tried to take that from me.” We certainly admire her courage and bravery in such a sad situation.

In this celebrity news, Reese Witherspoon opens up about an abusive relationship. What are some things you can do if you find yourself in an abusive situation?

Cupid’s Advice:

Abusive situations are very serious and can be challenging to leave. If you or somebody you know is struggling with any sort of abuse, here are three things to do:

1. Acknowledge: Victims usually blame themselves or minimize the reality of the situation. Abuse isn’t always broken bones or black and blue bruises. It takes form of sexual assault, verbal intimidation and threats, too. Acknowledging that your situation is an abusive one does not define who you are, it is a step closer to getting out of it.

2. Talk: Once you open up to somebody about your relationship, overcoming it becomes easier. Whether you confide in a family member, friend, or anonymous hotline, you are taking a huge step in your path. Don’t be afraid to talk about what you’re going through. The National Domestic Violence Hotline has amazing, trained people to talk to 24 hours a day, so call them anytime: 1-800-799-7233.

3. Use a safe computer: It’s important to keep your well-being at the front-lines. Computer usage is easily monitored, so you want to ensure your abuser has no access to your searches. The National Domestic Violence Hotline’s website has some very informative information about how to reduce your “tech footprint” to reduce the chance of your abuser finding your cries for help. Deleting your history, cache, and cookies are all starters, though the website has more detailed tips for your benefit.

If you thought you were going to have to wait awhile for Kylie Jenner to announce her new celebrity baby’s name, you’re in for a real treat! In the latest celebrity news, Jenner took her big reveal to social media on Tuesday night, reports UsMagazine.com. Accompanying the precious post was a simple caption: “Stormi Webster” with an angel emoij. The Kardashian and Jenner families are known for their unique baby names, and Twitter users were certainly quick to come up with puns related to the newest celebrity baby. One user wrote “Somebody just said: It will be Stormi with the chance of Reign in the North of Chicago. I said: wait what[?] They replied with: it was a Dream.” Too funny! We can’t wait for more news about Stormi Webster!

This celebrity baby’s name was highly anticipated. What are some ways to honor your family’s heritage when it comes to naming your child?

Cupid’s Advice:

It’s an awesome idea to pay homage to your relatives when naming your new generation. Cupid has some ideas for you:

1. Use a maiden name: Maiden names make beautiful first names! If your maiden name is too masculine or feminine, use a variation that fits your style. Nicholas can easily become Nicole, Michaela can become Michael. The possibilities are endless, you just have to get creative!

2. Middle names matter: If you are set on a first name that has no relation to your family, consider tying your child’s middle name in! You can use the same middle name as a parent, grandparent, or even great-grandparent, or even use their first name. That way, there is a direct familial connection, which will certainly be appreciated.

3. Use a combo: Perhaps you want your child to have connections to both sides of the family. This can be done a variety of ways. You can combine two names as a hybrid first name, use one as a first and another as a second, or put a hyphen between the two! No feelings will be hurt when you make a clear effort to bring together both families!

In celebrity news, Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake are one cute married couple. What are some ways to make your marriage stronger?

Cupid’s Advice:

Even after you and your partner have been together for some time, it’s important to keep the magic alive. That way, you’ll have a long and happy marriage. Cupid has some tips to make sure this happens:

1. Do things alone: It’s important to maintain your individual identity. Sometimes, it manages to get lost when you are a couple. Allow each other to pursue your own interests and make sure to hang out with friends sans your partner. You’ll find the alone time to be fulfilling!

2. Keep to yourselves: If you and your partner are going through a rough patch, it’s probably smart to limit your venting. When you include too many people into your business, it can lead to people being overly and unnecessarily involved. This also leads to others perceiving your partner negatively. Be sure to balance the negatives with the positives!

3. Be positive: Make sure you and your partner are constantly affirming each other! This is important to a strong relationship because it shows you don’t take them for granted. Go out of your way to say “thank you” or give them a compliment that goes deeper than the surface level. A little gratitude goes a long way.

3. Chore charts: You should never feel like you are pulling all the weight! If your kids are old enough, you should consider introducing responsibilities into their routines.

Baby makes five! In some very exciting celebrity news, Chip and Joanna Gaines are expecting their fifth child together. The Fixer Upper stars shared the announcement about their celebrity baby on Chip’s Instagram, reports EOnline.com. Chip added his signature sense of humor to the caption, writing, “Gaines party of 7 (If you’re still confused.. WE ARE PREGNANT)” and tagged Joanna’s Instagram handle. Too funny! The newest addition to the celebrity couple‘s family will arrive sometime this year. Congratulations to Chip and Joanna!

There’s another Fixer Upper celebrity baby on the way! What are some ways to be sure you give attention to each of your children when you have a big family?

Cupid’s Advice:

Big families are tons of fun! At times, it can be overwhelming, but there’s never a lack of excitement. It’s normal for children to feel deprived of attention in larger families, so if you’re looking for ways to help find the balance, check out these tips from Cupid:

1. One-on-one time: Sometimes, all your kids really want is some quality time with you and your partner. Consider giving each of your children one day a month (or whatever works for your schedule) to spend the whole day with you. Make the day about them and give them the chance to choose what they want to do! They’ll totally appreciate the quality time with you or with your partner.

2. Emphasize group activities: Group activities are always a wonderful way to include everyone! Whether you play a game together, bake a bunch of cookies, or visit a local park, there are plenty of ways to spend equal amounts of time with all of your kids. Plus, these activities are big memory makers that are cherished long down the road.

3. Manage your schedules: If you have a large family, it’s important to figure out a schedule that works. You should always encourage your kids to try new things and be ambitious, though you also have to be practical. Too many extracurricular commitments will hinder the time spent with each of your children. If your schedule seems overwhelming, perhaps one activity at a time is a good option!
