Jade Goody Has Died

Jade Goody, the 27-year-old mother of two young boys died in her sleep early Sunday morning – Mother’s Day in the U.K. – following a public battle with cervical cancer.

Jade’s mother Jackiey Budden was at her bedside and stated, “My beautiful daughter is at peace.” Jade’s husband Jack Tweed and close friend Kevin Adams were also with her as she passed. Max Clifford, her publicist and friend stated, “I think she’s going to be remembered as a young girl who has, and who will, save an awful lot of lives,” referring to how her public battle with cancer has raised awareness of the disease.

The reality TV star left behind two young sons, Bobby Jack, 5, and Freddie, 4. The boys’ father, TV presenter Jeff Brazier stated, “I’m grateful the boys were able to say their goodbyes and spend that precious time with their wonderful mother. Bobby and Freddie are my absolute priority and I will be doing everything I can to be their rock and to give them all my love and support to get them through a confusing and upsetting time.”

Jade became popular on the third series of Big Brother in 2002. Since then, she’s been a tabloid favorite.

Harpal Kumar, Cancer Research UK’s chief executive, stated that Jade’s high-profile battle with cancer will raise awareness and save lives: “We are very sad to hear of Jade’s death and our thoughts are with her family and friends at this devastating time. Her brave battle with an aggressive form of cervical cancer has received widespread public attention and encouraged thousands of women to seek advice on how to prevent the disease. It’s critical that young women take up their invitations to cervical screenings if we are to avoid more tragic cases like Jade’s. She has done a great public service by raising awareness of the importance of screening during her last few months of life.”

Dr Lesley Walker, Cancer Research UK’s director of cancer information also stated, “Cervical screening is very important because it can stop cervical cancer from developing in the first place. Women can protect themselves against cervical cancer by always attending routine screening tests when invited by their doctor. These tests detect any changes in the cells lining their cervix early on, so they can easily be treated before cancer develops.”

Our deepest condolences go out to the Goody family during this difficult time.

M.I.A’s Son’s Name – Ikhyd Not Ickitt

Although it was previously announced to be Ickitt, M.I.A’s newborn son’s name has now been revealed as Ikhyd.

According to the baby’s birth certificate, Mathangi Maya Arulpragasam officially named her son Ikhyd Edgar Arular Bronfman.

The official certificate also revealed another interesting fact. M.I.A’s birth date is listed as July 18, 1975 which makes her real age 33 (not 31 as previously believed).

It has just been announced that Ikhyd’s mom, in her first major appearance following her performance at the 2009 Grammy Awards (pictured above on her due date), has been booked for the second night of the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival on April 18.

So what do you think? Is Ikhyd better than Ickitt?

Soleil Moon Frye Dishes On Jagger's 1st Birthday

Soleil Moon Frye took to her Little Seed blog to share the details of her daughter Jagger’s first birthday.

Saying that she “can’t believe how fast the time goes by,” Soleil reveals that big sister Poet, 3 1/2, played host at the party.

“Poet hosted Jagger’s b-day and it was a big hit. Bubbles in the air, face painting, crafts and even a puppy petting zoo. There is nothing quite like the vision of kids running around on a candy high laughing while they chase after one another. Smiling little ones full of life and joy.”

Sounds like a wonderful day!

“These are the moments that I live for,” writes happy mom Soleil.

Soleil and her two girls are pictured above on a family trip to the park earlier this month.

Jaime Pressly On Her Son & Her Ex

On being one of the boys on My Name Is Earl: “I’m so one of the boys on the show! Lord, yes. Why stop the fun? I had a child; I didn’t die. [Costars] Jason Lee and Ethan Suplee are like my brothers. If it wasn’t for them, I wouldn’t have gotten through my pregnancy. They’re both fathers, and they were very understanding. When I got pregnant, they already knew I was a spitfire, so they were all a little afraid. I had my emotional moments. But no crazy yelling or anything like that.”

On her chatty son Dezi’s favorite expressions: “[Jaime imitates Dezi by smacking her forehead] ‘Oh, maaaannnn.’ He got that from Dora the Explorer. Mommy was his first word – which I loved. He got Dada soon after. For a while he spoke more Spanish than English because Eric is Cuban. There’s lots of ‘aqui, aqui’ and ‘comida, Mami,’ when he wants to eat. He can count to 10 in English. In Spanish, though, he really likes the word cinco. He’ll say, ‘Uno, dos, tres, quatro,’ then ‘cinco, cinco, cinco.’ He’s a really smart kid, really animated, lots of personality.”

On parenting post-breakup: “I have full custody, but when he’s in town, Eric comes and sees Dezi every day. Dezi’s too young right now to go overnight. But Eric’s very much a part of his life; he’s a great father. We make sure that no matter what happens, Dezi is okay and protected and knows that Mom and Daddy love him. We’ve never argued in front of him. We don’t raise our voices around him. “
