My husband (an awesome dad!) regularly gripes about how dads are portrayed in the media. And he has a point—it seems like the media image of dads hasn’t progressed beyond the “doofus dad” mode, even after a major diaper brand took the heat for insulting dads by showing them as completely incompetent when it comes to diaper changing. (Heck, even manly-man actor Channing Tatum spent a good part of an interview crowing about his diaper-changing prowess!)
Maybe there are pockets of these retro, hands-off dads out there, but all the dads I know and love are thoroughly involved in their kids’ lives—spending hours crafting Lego creations with their kiddos, taking late-night sick duty, and yes, changing diapers. (more…)

It’s a girl for rapper Lil Kim, 39, who became a first-time mom at 9:58 this morning in New Jersey.
And Lil Kim gave her daughter a name that seems a bit more fitting for a child of Prince—Royal Reign. (You can get the full scoop on her name selection at our baby name blog, In Name Only.)
While some celebrities lately have talked about scaling back their careers in the wake of parenthood (including movie stars Kristen Bell and Channing Tatum) Lil Kim told Us Magazine recently that she had no plans to scale back on her music career after her baby arrives. “I’m still going to work. I’m still going to be hardcore,” she said. “The baby has made me even more of a beast!”
Congrats to the brand new mommy and her daughter!
