Alec Baldwin doesn't want any more babies: 'When my kids graduate school, I?ll be 85'
Alec Baldwin is currently a father to about a million babies. No, he and Hilaria Thomas-Baldwin have four children under the age of six: Carmen Gabriela, 5, Romeo Alejandro David, 10 months, Leonardo ngel Charles, 2, and Rafael Thomas, 3. Alec Baldwin is 60 years old. Hilaria is 35 years old. I?ve always thought it was somewhat irresponsible to have so many babies at Alec?s age. Like, I understood why Hilaria would want to cement her position as the new Mrs. Baldwin with a baby or two. But four babies in quick succession still seems like a giant mess. And of course Hilaria wants to have more! Their youngest isn?t even one year old, and you know she?s probably trying to get pregnant again. But I guess Alec is finally through, or at least that?s what he told People:

On his kids & who they prefer: ?My wife is the star. My kids, they love me, they think I?m great, and as soon as my wife walks in, they?re like, ?Okay, bye? and they?re gone? I feel terrible, I feel sad. It?s lonely as soon as my wife walks in?.My wife is the casualty there because no matter how much help we have ? and we both have to go to work, so we have some help ? they only want their mother. What I always say is I?m doing really well with the kids until my wife comes home and then I?m invisible.?

Whether they?ll have another child: ?Oh yeah, she?s up for the challenge. I?m the one who?s not up for the challenge.? So what is the actor?s hesitation? ?When my kids graduate school, I?ll be 85. As my friends say, when your kids are climbing out the window and they?re going to do really, really bad things when they get older, when they?re in their late teen years, you?ll be deaf anyway so you won?t have to hear it. Let?s see what happens.?

?Because no matter how much help we have ? and we both have to go to work, so we have some help ? they only want their mother?? Alec has gotten ?in trouble? for talking about the help they have, and that trouble came from Hilaria. Hilaria seems to want to have the Instagram-perfect family and the Instagram-perfect (thirsty) yoga moves and I guess the four nannies don?t fit with that image. Anyway, as for what Alec says about ?being 85? when the kids graduate? I mean, when Carmen graduated from high school, he?ll be about 73 years old. When Leonardo graduates from high school, Alec will be 78. And yeah, it?s not the best.

Emilia Clarke suffered two burst brain aneurysms in between seasons of 'GoT'

Emilia Clarke suffered two burst brain aneurysms in between seasons of 'GoT'
Emilia Clarke, 32, has always come across as friendly and sweet. Shes mesmerizing as badass Daenerys on Game of Thrones but I also enjoyed her performance as a cutesy goof in Me Before You, and she was similarly great in Solo: A Star Wars Story, although the movie was a bit lacking. Shes an excellent actress who always comes across as gracious. Early in her career she was secretly dealing with a horrific medical condition. Emilia has revealed that she suffered a burst brain aneurysm right after filming for the first season of Game of Thrones wrapped. She has published an essay in The New Yorker describing what happened to her.

In 2011, at the age of 24, she had successful brain surgery through her groin and recovered. She suffered complications from a second surgery in 2013, for another aneurysm which burst on the operating table. Doctors had to go in through her skull that time and repair it with titanium. Her prognosis was bleak and she felt hopeless. Luckily she had SAG insurance for her second surgery (in the US, her first was in London) and time off from filming. She recovered and only one outlet, The National Enquirer, reported it. She denied that story but as Game of Thrones is about to air their eighth and final season she wanted to disclose it. I came away from this so impressed with her. Even as shes describing awful conditions where she could have died, shes careful to say her situation isnt any worse than someone elses. Shes also an excellent writer.

The recovery from her first brain surgery in 2011 was tough

That first surgery was what is known as ?minimally invasive,? meaning that they did not open up my skull. Rather, using a technique called endovascular coiling, the surgeon introduced a wire into one of the femoral arteries, in the groin; the wire made its way north, around the heart, and to the brain, where they sealed off the aneurysm.

The operation lasted three hours. When I woke, the pain was unbearable. I had no idea where I was. My field of vision was constricted. There was a tube down my throat and I was parched and nauseated. They moved me out of the I.C.U. after four days and told me that the great hurdle was to make it to the two-week mark. If I made it that long with minimal complications, my chances of a good recovery were high.

She couldnt remember her name

One night, after I?d passed that crucial mark, a nurse woke me and, as part of a series of cognitive exercises, she said, ?What?s your name?? My full name is Emilia Isobel Euphemia Rose Clarke. But now I couldn?t remember it. Instead, nonsense words tumbled out of my mouth and I went into a blind panic. I?d never experienced fear like that?a sense of doom closing in. I could see my life ahead, and it wasn?t worth living. I am an actor; I need to remember my lines. Now I couldn?t recall my name.

I was suffering from a condition called aphasia, a consequence of the trauma my brain had suffered. Even as I was muttering nonsense, my mum did me the great kindness of ignoring it and trying to convince me that I was perfectly lucid. But I knew I was faltering. In my worst moments, I wanted to pull the plug. I asked the medical staff to let me die. My job?my entire dream of what my life would be?centered on language, on communication. Without that, I was lost.

I was sent back to the I.C.U. and, after about a week, the aphasia passed. I was able to speak. I knew my name?all five bits. But I was also aware that there were people in the beds around me who didn?t make it out of the I.C.U. I was continually reminded of just how fortunate I was. One month after being admitted, I left the hospital, longing for a bath and fresh air. I had press interviews to do and, in a matter of weeks, I was scheduled to be back on the set of ?Game of Thrones.?

Doctors found a second aneurysm

I went back to my life, but, while I was in the hospital, I was told that I had a smaller aneurysm on the other side of my brain, and it could ?pop? at any time. The doctors said, though, that it was small and it was possible it would remain dormant and harmless indefinitely. We would just keep a careful watch.

The second brain surgery in 2013 had complications

While I was still in New York for the play, with five days left on my sag insurance, I went in for a brain scan?something I now had to do regularly. The growth on the other side of my brain had doubled in size, and the doctor said we should ?take care of it.? I was promised a relatively simple operation, easier than last time. Not long after, I found myself in a fancy-pants private room at a Manhattan hospital. My parents were there. ?See you in two hours,? my mum said, and off I went for surgery, another trip up the femoral artery to my brain. No problem.

Except there was. When they woke me, I was screaming in pain. The procedure had failed. I had a massive bleed and the doctors made it plain that my chances of surviving were precarious if they didn?t operate again. This time they needed to access my brain in the old-fashioned way?through my skull. And the operation had to happen immediately.

The recovery was even more painful than it had been after the first surgery. I looked as though I had been through a war more gruesome than any that Daenerys experienced. I emerged from the operation with a drain coming out of my head. Bits of my skull had been replaced by titanium. These days, you can?t see the scar that curves from my scalp to my ear, but I didn?t know at first that it wouldn?t be visible. And there was, above all, the constant worry about cognitive or sensory losses. Would it be concentration? Memory? Peripheral vision? Now I tell people that what it robbed me of is good taste in men. But, of course, none of this seemed remotely funny at the time.

I spent a month in the hospital again and, at certain points, I lost all hope. I couldn?t look anyone in the eye. There was terrible anxiety, panic attacks. I was raised never to say, ?It?s not fair?; I was taught to remember that there is always someone who is worse off than you. But, going through this experience for the second time, all hope receded. I felt like a shell of myself. So much so that I now have a hard time remembering those dark days in much detail. My mind has blocked them out. But I do remember being convinced that I wasn?t going to live. And, what?s more, I was sure that the news of my illness would get out. And it did?for a fleeting moment. Six weeks after the surgery, the National Enquirer ran a short story. A reporter asked me about it and I denied it.

But now, after keeping quiet all these years, I?m telling you the truth in full. Please believe me: I know that I am hardly unique, hardly alone. Countless people have suffered far worse, and with nothing like the care I was so lucky to receive.

[From The New Yorker]

I remember when Sharon Stone revealed that shed suffered a stroke in 2001 and had to take two years just to relearn how to speak and walk. Everyones brain injury is different, but I get the impression that Emilias recovery was tougher than she explained. Thats just her style though, she realizes shes lucky to be alive and is grateful for that and for her treatment. I love the joke she cracked about her surgery robbing her of her taste in men! I want to see great things for her after Game of Thrones, and Im sure we will.

Jenna Dewan is happy with Steve Kazee, he's bonding with her daughter

Jenna Dewan is happy with Steve Kazee, he's bonding with her daughter
We are coming up on the one-year anniversary of Jenna Dewan and Channing Tatum?s split announcement. What?s the appropriate gift for the one-year splitaversary? I don?t know what you?re supposed to get but Jenna seems to have gotten herself a keeper. And by that, I mean she and boyfriend Steve Kazee are growing stronger by the day. Apparently, it?s Get-Along-With-The Family good, which is wonderful. Especially as Kazee seems to have a special relationship with Jenna?s five-year-old daughter, Everly.

Jenna Dewan and boyfriend Steve Kazee?s relationship continues to grow.

PEOPLE confirmed in October that the actress, 38, and the Broadway star, 43, had been ?dating for months.? They?ve since spent her December birthday and Valentine?s Day together, and Kazee met Dewan?s 5-year-old daughter Everly, who she shares with her ex-husband Channing Tatum.

?She?s very happy,? a source tells PEOPLE in this week?s issue. ?Jenna thinks he?s great with her daughter.?

On Saturday, Everly joined her mom and Kazee for a stroll through West Hollywood. Dewan and the Tony award-winning actor walked hand-in-hand, and Kazee even carried Everly?s backpack.

?Jenna is gushing about how amazing her relationship with Steve is,? the insider continues.

[From People]

I don?t have anything but atta-girls for Jenna. She always seemed like a nice person. She?s very focused on her daughter and working her career around that. I imagine her partner getting along with her daughter would be number one on her list and the fact that he also gets along with her mom and, I?m assuming, the rest of her family ? that?s just icing on the cake.

As for Channing, apparently he and Jesse J are moving at a clipped pace too. Just last week, Channing accompanied Jesse to her native London to see her family as well. According to the source, it was their first trip to her hometown together and seemed more serious since their return. Looks like Channing got himself a keeper for his splitaversary as well. And it?s all good because remember, Jenna and Jesse have been nothing but lovely to each other. So it looks like the big winner here is Everlry, and that?s exactly how it should be.
