Being in lockdown didn’t stop us – or the stars – from celebrating Mother’s Day this year, with many celebs sharing a glimpse of their family lives on social media, while also spreading joy and appreciation for frontline workers. A few days before the holiday, Sandra Bullock and her rarely seen 8-year-old daughter, Laila, surprised a COVID-19 unit nurse manager at a California hospital during an appearance on Facebook Watch show Red Table Talk. “Thank you for everything that you’re doing,” she said. “Because we get to sit here and be home with our families because you are out there doing the hard, hard, hard work.” Reese Witherspoon shared that she felt “so lucky to be Mama of this crew!” alongside a pic of kids Ava, 20, Deacon, 16 and Tennessee,…

His son, actor Ben Stiller, confirmed the news on social media. “I’m sad to say that my father, Jerry Stiller, passed away from natural causes,” he wrote. “He was a great dad and grandfather, and the most dedicated husband to Anne for about 62 years.

royal mums at home

It’s been a huge year already for the royals, and now, as the Sussexes and Cambridges navigate life in lockdown, the families are under more scrutiny than ever before.

Yet, no such thefts had been reported in previous weeks, and Arbery was unarmed. But in recent weeks, a shocking video of the 25-year-old being gunned down seemed to prove what many believed: this was a racially charged hate crime. And after two months of campaigning for justice for…
