“When we were learning about COVID, I was always looking for articles that would talk about infants when they’re born, and there wasn’t a lot of articles about that, so for me, I was like, I’m going to be one of those moms that are in the experimental phase of it all, too, to see what happens,” Ciara shared on The Motherhood Juggle lifestream series. “So it’s definitely been a memorable one, an unforgettable experience.”

Ciara and husband Russell Wilson first announced they were expecting their second child together back in January. They welcomed their son Win in July.

Ciara and Russell are also parents to daughter Sienna, 3, and Ciara shares son Future Jr, 6, with ex Future.

During their chat, Kerry explained how she teaches her kids – daughter Isabelle, 6, and son Caleb, 23 months – about racial injustice.

“I want my kids to know that I am fully present as they’re exploring those ideas, too,” Kerry shared. “In a lot of ways, I have to make sure that I am taking care of myself as I’m having these conversations and, just on a daily basis, doing what I need to do to stay calm and to stay present and stay informed. So that I can really be there for them as the world unfolds around them.”

Kerry continued, “I wear the Breonna Taylor T-Shirt, you know, ‘Arrest the cops who killed Breonna Taylor.’ So if I’m going to wear that, which I do proudly, I’d be ready to have that conversation in my house and answer those questions.”

Kerry went on to say that she also tries to be a good listener when she talks with her kids.

“Such a big part of it is knowing who your kid is and as you’re having the conversation, like watching and listening for the cues to be present for this stuff,” Kerry said. “A lot of us remember the moment in our own childhoods when we were first confronted with negative views about race with racism, with institutionalized racism.”

During another recent interview, Kerry admitted that she still gets nervous going for scooter rides with her kids in her own neighborhood.

Meghan Markle & Prince Harry Make A United Front While Urging Citizens To Vote in 'TIME 100' Special

Meghan Markle & Prince Harry Make A United Front While Urging Citizens To Vote in 'TIME 100' Special

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made a special appearance during the Time 100 special, opening up about the importance of voting in the coming elections.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex opened up with a congratulatory message to all those who made the TIME 100 list, before their remarks about voting and making your voice count.

“We’re just six weeks out from Election Day, and today is National Voter Registration Day. Every four years, we are told the same thing, that ‘This is the most important election of our lifetime,’” Meghan said. “But this one is. When we vote, our values are put into action and our voices are heard. Your voice is a reminder that you matter. Because you do. And you deserve to be heard.”

Harry added that he’s “not going to be able to vote here in the U.S., but many of you may not know that I haven’t been able to vote in the U.K. my entire life.”

“As we approach this November, it’s vital that we reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity,” he continued.

Meghan chimed in, saying that “as we work to re-imagine the world around us, let’s challenge ourselves to build communities of compassion.”

The former senior royals also talked about online misconduct including cyberbullying and cancel culture, and how it can affect mental health.

“Seeing our world through the lens of community is so important. Because we need to redraw the lines of how we engage with each other, both online and off,” Meghan shared. “What we’re exposed to online seeps into how we engage with each other offline. It can train us to be kind, or it can train us to be cruel.”

Harry added, “But when the bad outweighs the good, for many, whether we realize it or not, it erodes our ability to have compassion and our ability to put ourself in someone else’s shoes. Because when one person buys into negativity online, the effects are felt exponentially. It’s time to not only reflect, but act.”

Meghan has recently been outspoken in the importance of voting, and has even cold-called Americans about it.

Kim Kardashian Calls This Star a 'Great Role Model for Children' in Time 100 Profile

Kim Kardashian Calls This Star a 'Great Role Model for Children' in Time 100 Profile

Kim Kardashian is honoring JoJo Siwa!

The 39-year-old reality star penned a touching tribute to the 17-year-old star, who has been named as one of Time’s 100 Most Influential People of 2020. JoJo is also the youngest person on the list this year.

“JoJo Siwa is a ray of sunshine in a world that seems scary right now,” Kim wrote. “As a parent, you want your kids to admire positive figures. There’s no one more positive than JoJo. You just can’t help but smile when you see her rainbow ponytail.”

“She’s a great role model for children, and her optimism is more necessary now than ever. It’s no wonder my 7-year-old daughter North and millions of other children around the world adore her,” Kim continued. “When North met JoJo last year to fulfill her dream of being part of her YouTube channel, North got really shy. But JoJo, like a big sister, made her feel at home as they dressed up, danced and made slime.”

Last year, Kim let JoJo “babysit” daughter North, 7, in a super cute YouTube video.

“JoJo is never ashamed to be herself, which can be really hard to do in this industry, especially when you’re so young,” Kim continued. “When Keeping Up With the Kardashians first aired, I was old enough to know who I was and make my own decisions. I can’t imagine what it’s like to live this life at age 17. JoJo embraces it, and I hope she always will.”

Kim concluded: “At some point, she’ll evolve and grow up a little bit, and that’s O.K. The people who love and support her will always be there. Live in the moment. Have fun. Be yourself and surround yourself with people who will keep you positive.”

Phoebe Waller-Bridge is Honored by Taylor Swift for Time's 100 Most Influential People of 2020 List!

Phoebe Waller-Bridge is Honored by Taylor Swift for Time's 100 Most Influential People of 2020 List!

Phoebe Waller-Bridge has been named one of the most influential people of 2020!

The 35-year-old Fleabag creator made Time’s 100 list meaning she’s one of the 100 most influential people in the world, according to the mag.

Each year, the honorees are highlighted and have a piece written about them in the magazine by a fellow celeb. This year, Taylor Swift wrote a touching piece about the power that is Phoebe.

“The 2019 Emmys were full of glitz and glamour, but as far as the Internet was concerned, there was one image that stole the show,” the 30-year-old entertainer wrote. “The picture in question launched thousands of tweets, ranging from ‘Phoebe Waller-Bridge at the Emmy’s after party is a big fat mood,’ to ‘My vision board is just this photo 500 times’ and the popular ‘THE POWER SHE HOLDS.’ It depicts Phoebe, mid-puff-of-smoke, blissfully relaxing on a sun lounger in a glittery Monique Lhuillier gown, surrounded by Emmys. It was, to paraphrase pretty much everyone who saw it, iconic.”

“But an image alone doesn’t evoke this kind of passionate response without a story behind it. The reason this picture feels so good to see is that before this moment, there were seemingly endless drafts and rewrites and deadlines,” Taylor continued. “There were countless times this writer was up at all hours of the night, not celebrating in the delicious glow of the light bouncing off her golden trophies, but racking her brain to try and stick a literary landing.”

Taylor added, “Sometimes all the puzzle pieces fall into place at the perfect time. A combination of razor-sharp instincts, killer wit and genuine care for the people she works with proved to be a winning hand. She is the executive producer and was a showrunner of the thrilling hit show Killing Eve. Her one-woman play Fleabag was adapted into a show that turned her into everyone’s favorite self-sabotaging maker of mischief. (Phoebe has a habit of creating complex female anti­heroes in a way that seemed previously reserved for male characters.) And she co-wrote the screenplay for the new Bond film.”

“It’s magical to see that all the rehearsals, baby steps, false starts and dead ends can lead to an extremely driven and unfathomably talented woman unwinding in a lounge chair surrounded by her winnings,” Taylor concluded. “Phoebe Waller-Bridge and all that she has achieved is, indeed, a big mood.”

For Fleabag, Phoebe won three Emmys, two Golden Globes, two Critics’ Choice Awards, and a SAG award among many other honors.
