Days after their baby girl officially turned one on Tuesday, the proud parents — who are expecting their fourth child via surrogate — threw their daughter an Alice in Wonderland-themed bash at their Hidden Hills, California, home.
After giving her followers a brief glimpse at some of the decorations — which included a topiary maze in the hallway, an elaborate cake with a giant grinning Cheshire cat, and a bouncy house in the backyard — the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, 38, found her son Saint sharing a sweet moment with his baby sister.
“You are so nice sharing with your sister,” Kardashian West could be heard saying alongside a video of her Saint, 3, holding a cup so his sister could drink from it.
For her big day, baby Chicago wore an adorable little dress, which she paired with some sturdy black boots. Meanwhile, Saint wore an oversized shirt with a pair of jeans and sneakers.

However, there was just one small problem: Chicago seemed more interested in running through the house than actually going to her party!
“Chi, come here, it’s your birthday party,” Kardashian West can be heard calling out in one video, as her daughter starts running off into the distance.
The KKW Beauty mogul went on to share a cute clip of the pair crawling around on the floor.
“These two are always together,” she said to the camera. “Come on guys, let’s go outside.”

“We’re the first ones here on purpose,” Khloé, 34, told her followers on Snapchat, explaining that she couldn’t wait to see how Kim and her husband decorated for the bash.
“Wow,” she added as she took in the sights.
And as Chicago and Saint teamed up, Kim’s eldest daughter North, 5½, spent some time with her cousin True, 9 months, and her aunt Khloé, who went on take a series of cute photos of the two girls.
On Chicago’s actual birthday earlier this week, her mother was the first in her famous family to share a sweet tribute in honor of the birthday girl.
“Happy Birthday to my pretty girl Chi!!!! The sweetest baby in the whole world!” she wrote alongside an adorable shot of her bundle of joy. “Mommy and Daddy love you so much!”
In the black-and-white photograph, Chicago, who was wearing a white dress, lounged barefoot on a woven surface while throwing the camera a dazzling smile.
Just one day earlier, Kim confirmed that she and her husband would be welcoming another child, via surrogate, during Monday’s episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.
The KUTK star also revealed the baby is due “sometime soon.”
“It’s a boy, I think it’s been out there,” Kim told Cohen. “I got drunk at our Christmas Eve party and told some people. I can’t remember who I told because I never get drunk.”
James Van Der Beek is reminiscing on one of his epic family vacations.
The Pose star and his wife Kimberly Van Der Beek took a road trip to Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada near the end of 2018 — with all five of their children in tow!
During the vacation, their kids — son Joshua, 6, and daughters Olivia, 8, Annabel, 4, Emilia, 2, and Gwendolyn, 7 months— enjoyed explored the canyons and eating salads in an RV.
Around a week after he returned home to Los Angeles from his getaway, James, 41, shared a series of photos from the trip, which included a sweet full-family shot and photos of the kids taking in the sights.View this post on Instagram #tbt My head is very much back in the game... but my heart is still relishing last week. A post shared by James Van Der Beek (@vanderjames) on Jan 10, 2019 at 11:59am PST
“My head is very much back in the game… but my heart is still relishing last week,” the Dawson’s Creek alum captioned his “#tbt” photo series.
Kimberly also shared photos from the vacation, including one where Joshua and Annabel pose with scribbles on the side of a rock that were dated Dec. 10, 2018, which the kids believe to be “ancient.”
“’Mommy I found ancient writing!’” Kimberly wrote. “Swipe for more photos of one of my most favorite days in life. Made yesterday’s madness all worth it.”View this post on Instagram “Mommy I found ancient writing!” Swipe for more photos of one of my most favorite days in life.

In September 2018, Van Der Beek got candid about parenting in the caption of a photo featuring himself and Emilia, giving a commentary on the phrase, “The days were long, the years were short.”
“That’s what parents of older children have said to me about raising kids. And it feels true already,” he wrote. “It’s SO easy to get consumed by the stresses, the daily grind, the little dramas that won’t even register in your memory a year later.”
“Seven years into #parenthood, I’m realizing more and more that all that really matters … are the moments of connection,” Van Der Beek added. “So when they happen, give yourself permission to wipe everything off the table and be 100 percent fully present for them. They’ll make the days happier, and the years worthwhile.”
Since Lee Unkrich joined Pixar in 1994, he’s been involved with some of the most celebrated animated films in Hollywood history, notably directing Toy Story 3 and Coco. Now, he says, “The time has come for new adventures.”
After 25 years, Unkrich announces he’s leaving Pixar. “I’m not leaving to make films at another studio; instead, I look forward to spending much-needed time with my family and pursuing interests that have long been back-burnered,” he said in a statement provided to The Hollywood Reporter.
In a letter sent to his coworkers, and shared online via Twitter, Unkrich marked Feb. 15 as his last day at the studio.
“It is impossible for me to adequately express how epic this 25-year journey has been, and how much it has meant to work alongside such fantastic people and phenomenal talents,” he wrote. “Many of you are like family to me, and it’s nearly incomprehensible to imagine no longer being here at Pixar with you. But life is about change, and it’s now my time for new challenges and new adventures.”
“I often tell people that the worst thing about working at Pixar is that I have never gotten to see ‘the new Pixar movie’ without having worked on it or knowing everything about it,” he added. “While it will be many years before I get that opportunity, I look forward to it. I’ll be first in line to see what you create together.”Letter sent to my Pixar family. ?? pic.twitter.com/UUonemVbLe— Lee Unkrich (@leeunkrich) January 19, 2019
According to Pete Docter, Pixar’s chief creative officer, Unkrich came to the animation house during development on the first Toy Story “and he’s had a profound effect on all Pixar films since.”
He became a supervising editor on 1998’s A Bug’s Life, for which he also contributed various voice roles. Unkrich then co-directed Toy Story 2, Monster’s Inc., and Finding Nemo before taking the helm solo on Toy Story 3. He also contributed to the story of the upcoming Toy Story 4.
“He literally taught us rookie filmmakers about staging, composition and cutting,” Docter said. “His artistry and expert craftsmanship as an editor and co-director became a major reason for the high quality of our filmmaking, and as Lee went on to direct, his ability to find the deep humor and emotion enabled him to create some of the strongest films we’ve made.”After twenty-five incredible years, I’ve decided to leave Pixar. The time has come for new adventures. pic.twitter.com/0KZyHXhs8L— Lee Unkrich (@leeunkrich) January 18, 2019
Unkrich’s departure is the latest big change coming to Pixar, which saw John Lasseter, the previous CCO, leave amid allegations of misconduct. Lasseter has since apologized for certain “missteps” and “to anyone who has ever been on the receiving end of an unwanted hug or any other gesture they felt crossed the line in any way, shape, or form.” He then moved over to head animation at Skydance, an appointment that didn’t come without concerns from staff. Docter and Frozen‘s Jennifer Lee were named as Lasseter’s replacements at Pixar.
Anthony Gonzalez, the 14-year-old voice actor behind Miguel in Unkrich’s Coco, bid farewell to his director.
“I am so blessed to have had crossed paths with you,” he tweeted. “Our love for each other will live on forever in every beat of my proud corazón! You are a blessing in our lives! Wishing you the best of the best! Forever your Miguel, Anthony Gonzalez.”Lee, I am so blessed to have had crossed paths with you.

Days after the Love and Hip Hop alum, 24, and Kardashian, 31, documented their dinner together, the reality star responded to criticism from Blac Chyna’s boyfriend, rapper Kid Buu, who suggested that Skyy was only interested in Kardashian because of his famous last name.
Commenting on an Instagram photo of Skyy getting out of a car, which she shared on Friday, the 30-year-old rapper wrote, “You really wit robs fat ass for love or is it just for clout?”
The comment appears to have since been deleted, according to The Shade Room.
In response, Skyy criticized his relationship with 30-year-old Chyna, before adding, “to answer your question…I love rob.”
Chyna, Kardashian’s ex, allegedly got into a fight with Skyy earlier this month.View this post on Instagram #ClapbackSeason: Chile!! #BlacChyna’s boo #KidBuu had a question for #AlexisSkyy ???? A post shared by The Shade Room (@theshaderoom) on Jan 18, 2019 at 10:49am PST
Sparks seemed to fly between Kardashian and Skyy on Monday, when the father of one shared a series of videos and photos of Skyy making him dinner at what appears to be Kris Jenner‘s Calabasas, California, mansion.
Their at-home dinner date night came after Kardashian called Skyy his Women Crush Wednesday. “My WCW… I’ve been wanting you for so long,” Kardashian wrote over a photo of Skyy on Monday.
In the photo, Skyy can be seen wearing a pink two-piece ensemble, the same outfit she wore the night of her alleged fight with Kardashian’s ex-fiancée.

The two women allegedly got into a physical altercation at a private party in Los Angeles earlier this month, multiple outlets reported. In videos shared on social media, Skyy can be seen charging at Chyna but was held back by party guests.
Following the incident, Skyy hopped on Instagram, claiming the fight broke out after Chyna allegedly threw a drink at her and demanded she get out of her VIP section, according to since-deleted posts obtained by TMZ.
Chyna and Kardashian share 2-year-old daughter Dream.
For years, The Cookie Dough Cafe has been selling edible cookie dough made with no eggs and high-quality ingredients so you can eat it right out of the jar. In their cookies and cream recipe, the online retailer — which now operates a scoop shop in Portland, Oregon — mixes real chunks of Oreo cookies in with their classic dough recipe.
According to their website, the Oreo flavor is “delicious paired with ice cream or enjoyed straight from the jar” and is specifically crafted to be eaten as-is, not baked in the oven.

“Our love of cookie dough started when we were kids,” the company’s founders, Joan Pacetti and Julia Schmidt, write on their website. “Some of our fondest childhood memories involved baking with our mom. There was something special about being in the kitchen, watching her whip up a batch of homemade chocolate chip cookies while we stood on chairs eagerly waiting to lick the dough off the beaters.”View this post on Instagram Excuse me brb ???? @marketofchoice #getinmybelly A post shared by The Cookie Dough Café® (@thecookiedoughcafe) on Jan 15, 2019 at 4:17pm PST
“To us, the cookie dough has always been the best part!” they continue.
Their idea to bake edible cookie dough garnered national attention when the sisters appeared on Shark Tank and caught the eye of Lori Greiner and guest Shark Steve Tisch in 2014.
Since then, the company has expanded, and many of their flavors — including Oreo — can be found in grocery stores across the world. They can also be purchased online and shipped right to your door at jet.com for around $11 per 16 oz. jar.
Kellyanne Conway may work in the White House, but her husband has no problem criticizing her boss.
Trump criticized a BuzzFeed report that claimed authorities had proof Trump directed his former personal attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress — which would qualify as an obstruction of justice and an impeachable offense, if true.
In response, George, who has spoken out against Trump numerous times in the past and even formed a coalition of conservative lawyers against the president, cast doubt on Trump’s credibility.
“In light of the fact that you are a pathological liar, you should not be heard to complain about inaccurate media reports,” wrote George, 55.
PEOPLE has contacted the White House for comment.In light of the fact that you are a pathological liar, you should not be heard to complain about inaccurate media reports. https://t.co/i1OpMpyiXG— George Conway (@gtconway3d) January 19, 2019 Remember it was Buzzfeed that released the totally discredited “Dossier,” paid for by Crooked Hillary Clinton and the Democrats (as opposition research), on which the entire Russian probe is based! A very sad day for journalism, but a great day for our Country!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 19, 2019
In a very rare statement issued on Friday, Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating the alleged conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russian officials, also challenged the story’s accuracy.
According to BuzzFeed reporters Anthony Cormier and Jason Leopold, Trump allegedly told his then-attorney Cohen to lie to Congress about plans to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. The report — which was dismissed by the president’s legal team — cites “two federal law enforcement officials involved in [the] investigation” and later notes an even lengthier array of sources, apparently confirmed by the officials.
“BuzzFeed’s description of specific statements to the Special Counsel’s Office, and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohen’s Congressional testimony are not accurate,” Mueller’s spokesman, Peter Carr, told PEOPLE in a statement.
In response, BuzzFeed said in its own statement, “We are continuing to report and determine what the special counsel is disputing. We remain confident in the accuracy of our report.”
On Saturday, BuzzFeed said in a new statement provided to PEOPLE, “As we’ve re-confirmed our reporting, we’ve seen no indication that any specific aspect of our story is inaccurate. We remain confident in what we’ve reported, and will share more as we are able.”

Trump’s relationship with Russia has been a central controversy dating back to his campaign and he and other administration officials initially fiercely denied any contact or business dealings, which later investigation proved to be untrue.
The president continues to deny any conspiracy with Russia, which the U.S. intelligence community has said intervened in the 2016 presidential election to boost his chances of winning.
Trump’s eldest son Eric has spoken out against George in the past, tweeting in December that his vocal disapproval is a sign of “disrespect” to his wife, a senior adviser to the president.
“Of all the ugliness in politics, the utter disrespect George Conway shows toward his wife, her career, place of work, and everything she has fought SO hard to achieve, might top them all,” Eric, 35, tweeted. “@KellyannePolls is great person and frankly his actions are horrible.”
Seemingly unbothered, George went on to parody Eric’s response, altering the message to be about the president.
“Of all the ugliness in politics, the utter disrespect the Trumps show toward the rule of law, the presidency and its place of work, and everything this nation has fought SO hard to achieve might top them all. Donald Trump is terrible person and frankly his actions are horrible.”
In November, George — who shares four kids with Kellyanne, 51 — commented on his wife’s reaction to his public dissent on Yahoo News’ podcast Skullduggery, saying, “I don’t think she likes it. But I’ve told her, I don’t like the administration, so it’s even.”
Matthew McConaughey woke up one morning with a mysterious ailment.
Speaking to PEOPLE for the magazine’s One Last Thing page, the Oscar winner, 49, reveals he and wife Camila Alves, 36, had been debating the benefits of a new bed at home.
“I’m thinking that I want to get a firmer mattress,” McConaughey tells PEOPLE exclusively in this week’s issue. “Our mattress presently has a pillowtop — and my back hasn’t been hurting. I took the pillowtop off two nights ago and I sleep on that mattress without it and I woke up the next morning like I’d been bucked from a bull in a rodeo.”
Currently promoting his role as a fishing-boat captain in the new thriller Serenity — which also stars Anne Hathaway — the actor didn’t have time to slow down. “My lower back was so damn sore,” McConaughey says. “So now my question is: Is that because my back is self-correcting because it was on a firm, firm, firm mattress? Or do I just need the pillow top?”
McConaughey sought professional help to solve the dilemma. “I’m going right now to go get physical therapy on it,” he adds. “I’m like, what the hell? It’s the damnedest thing.”

Asked about his last moment of pride, the actor insists it revolved around creating what he deems “my favorite bourbon on the planet” — Wild Turkey Longbranch. “Just about a year ago, it was a new venture for me,” McConaughey says. “For over two years I wrote notes on samples and at about the two-year mark, I found the perfect liquid for Longbranch.”
McConaughey says his resilience most definitely paid off. “On the other end, they were like, ‘C’mon!’ I was like, ‘Nope, not yet. Yes, I’m enjoying this but I’m not saying yes until we’ve got it just right.’ And when we did, that was a moment of pride. Two years is a long time!”
“You don’t mend fences,” she told PEOPLE of their ongoing disagreement at the iHeartRadio Podcast Awards in Los Angeles on Friday. “You let it go. It is what it is.”
Michaels said she was confused when the Today weatherman — a proclaimed fan of the diet — first questioned her health advice and cited her alleged promotion of “on camera bullying, deprivation, and manipulation” on The Biggest Loser.
“The weird thing about Al Roker is that I’ve been doing segments with this guy on the Today show for over a decade and he has never been anything but the nicest guy,” Michaels told PEOPLE Friday, adding that Roker was always “lovely” and “sweet,” gave her kids hugs and asked about her family when she visited NBC’s morning program.
“I know that he does keto, and I get it, but you would think that I told him that there was no God,” Michaels added. “It was really intense. I must admit, sometimes I want to say, ‘You realize that this is just an issue about nutrition, right? We’re not talking about Jesus, or Buddha, or Allah.'”
Michaels sparked controversy in early January by speaking out about the diet in a video for Women’s Health, calling keto a “bad plan for a million reasons,” and adding that she believes the keto diet deprives your body of essential nutrients.
“Your cells, your macromolecules, are literally made up of protein, fat, carbohydrates, nucleic acids. When you do not eat one of the three macronutrients — those three things I just mentioned — you’re starving yourselves,” she said. “Those macronutrients serve a very important purpose for your overall health and wellbeing. Each and every one of them.”
Instead, Michaels said that it’s best to eat a well-rounded diet: “You don’t eat processed sugar, you don’t eat processed grains, and to make a very long story short: avoid the keto diet,” she told PEOPLE Now in December. “Common sense. Balanced diet is key.”

On Friday, Michaels said that her comments on the eating plan were not meant to be harmful: “Nor, by the way, was anything that I had to say a personal attack of any kind,” she told PEOPLE. “It was just based on information that I heavily researched, with a co-author who specializes in this space, and neuroscientists, and endocrinologists, and registered dietitians who wrote over 500 studies over two years.”
She added with a laugh, “So, it’s possible that I did my homework. I don’t know.”
After Michaels’ recent comment about the diet, she found herself in the middle of a feud with Roker and Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen, who called her a “jackhole” on his Bravo show. PEOPLE has reached out to a rep for Cohen for comment.
When Roker, 64, and Cohen, 50, first called out Michaels, she tweeted back at them, writing that she would rather have a conversation about her book The 6 Keys, which addresses the myths and misunderstandings associated with aging, and the diet instead of feuding.
“I have an idea…” Michaels wrote to Cohen and Roker on Twitter on Friday, Jan. 11. “How about a civil intelligent debate on The 6 Keys book and keto instead of personal attacks and name calling? I’m also a motivator and I know you guys can do this.”
She also addressed Roker directly in a video, citing the mutual “respect” they have for one another.. @alroker here to chat whenever pic.twitter.com/nK1bhi8kBc— Jillian Michaels (@JillianMichaels) January 12, 2019
“If you want to debate the science of keto, then, by all means, let’s do that,” she told Roker. “But the personal attacks are bizarre. It’s unnecessary, it’s uncalled for, it’s beneath both of us, right?”
On Friday, Michaels told PEOPLE she is standing firm on her stance against the high-fat, moderate-protein, low-carb eating plan, which she characterized as “essentially [the] Atkins [diet] re-skinned for Millennials.”
“The keto diet is basically when you deprive the body of carbohydrates, and it goes into a state called ketosis, which, long story short, your body releases ketones, and that is how you know that you are carb-deprived, and it will accelerate fat loss,” Michaels said at the event. “It seems like a great idea, but the reality is you can lose weight, and you can get healthy without any of the side effects associated with it. And at the end of the day, I don’t care if somebody wants to do it. I don’t want to do it, and I have done my homework on why I don’t want to do it.”
This isn’t the first time she’s criticized the keto diet. Last May, she called it a “diet fad” and urged, “Don’t do keto.”
Ricky Williams was a dominant running back on his way to winning the Heisman Trophy in college and punishing defenders for 12 seasons in the NFL. But the enigmatic star also carried a bit of a reputation. Williams served various suspensions after being caught violating the NFL drug policy four times, with marijuana being the main culprit.
And after his playing days ended, Williams went on to become a medical cannabis advocate. So, yes, there has been a bit of chatter out there that Williams enjoyed partaking in the wacky tobacky, and that reputation often seemed to obscure his professional accomplishments and other personal attributes.
So when asked by EW what misconception about himself that Williams was looking to dispel while competing on Celebrity Big Brother (which premieres Jan. 21 on CBS), the former running back did not hesitate. “I think a big misconception towards the latter half of my career is that I am a pothead,” says Williams. “In the house there won’t be any pot, and so it will be a chance to show people who I really am outside of the rumors.”
WAIT, THERE’S NO POT IN THE BIG BROTHER HOUSE?!? That doesn’t seem right. Regardless, Ricky looks forward to showing both the other contestants and the millions of viewers that there’s more to the man that a seeming affinity for reefer madness.
He also thinks he can win! “I’m an authentic, genuine person that people typically like,” Williams tells us, “and I think I’m going to be a difficult person to evict.” But he does recognize he needs to work on his social game. “The hardest thing about being in a house with all these people is gonna be to be social and force myself to be social,” he notes. “I’m naturally a loaner so I’m going to have to keep reminding myself, make small talk. Even though it’s painful for me, make small talk, make small talk. Get to know these people.”
James McAvoy didn’t get to work with Samuel L. Jackson or Bruce Willis in 2017’s Split, even though the film dwells in the same M. Night Shyamalan-created cinematic universe as the pair’s 2000 superhero saga, Unbreakable. Jackson didn’t feature in Split at all while Willis only appeared in the closing moments, to reveal that the two movies were part of the same tale.
However, McAvoy did very much act with the duo in the just-released Glass, which finds his Kevin Wendell Crumb, Jackson’s Elijah Price, and Willis’ David Dunn being treated at a psychiatric facility for their comic book-inspired “delusions” by Sarah Paulson’s Dr. Ellie Staple.
“It was two very different experiences and two experiences that I f—ing loved,” says McAvoy of his time on-set with the Unbreakable stars. “Sam has been one of my favorite actors for a long long time and he’s somebody who really digs acting, do you know what I mean? He loves acting and he’s very generous with his fellow actors. When he sees somebody committed, and going at it, and all that kind of stuff, if he sees an actor sweating blood, he seems to really get into that. But also at the same time, Sam is really forthright and upfront. If he doesn’t like something you know about it quick and if he does like something you know about it even quicker. And that’s just an exciting person to be around.
“Bruce was very different. Bruce was very quiet and very enigmatic. He in a very different way was hugely generous. He’s just such a quietly strong presence to have on set — very very generous in a very different way. Less loud and forthright.”
