Mini Pumpkin Billy Corgan Says His Son Augustus 2½ Watches My Music Videos Every Day

Mini Pumpkin Billy Corgan Says His Son Augustus 2½ Watches My Music Videos Every Day

Billy Corgan‘s son might be following in his musical footsteps.

The Smashing Pumpkins frontman, 51, and his partner Chloe Mendel posed for an adorable photo spread with their pets and 2½-year-old son Augustus Juppiter for PAWS Chicago‘s summer-fall 2018 magazine issue, where the couple discussed how their little boy is already taking to his dad’s profession.

“He watches my music videos every day now, so I’m excited to see how he adapts to tour buses and arenas full of people,” Corgan — who’s currently on the road with his band — told the organization’s magazine of Augustus. “My guess is he’ll very much want to come on stage to say hello or sing.”

Mendel, 25, says the trio are “very family oriented” and shares how special it is that her son can adapt to both her career in fashion and Corgan’s career in music.

“I love that Augustus can be a part of my work life and his father’s,” she said. “Not many babies go to fabric stores in the day, then music studios at night.”

Corgan admits “life hasn’t changed much since Augustus was born” aside from one big adjustment that’s more internal than external.

“Except perhaps a restructuring of my priorities, which I don’t mind at all,” he says.

Agrees Mendel, “A lot has stayed the same, except I wake up at 6 a.m. daily, which is not any easier than it was before I had a child. But it’s totally worth it!”

Although Augustus is the first child for both, Corgan and Mendel are the owners of two dogs and three cats — and they didn’t push their son to interact with the family’s fur babies in any specific way.

“We let Augustus figure out his own relationship with the pets while very closely monitoring any behavior that was over the line regarding their space or well-being,” Corgan says. “He learned with them what was appropriate. But the pets seemed to know he was a baby and were very patient.”

He explains that he had hesitations about how the two dogs, Chin and Ling Li

Grace Kellys Granddaughter Charlotte Casiraghi Shows Off Baby Bump in Chic White Bathing Suit

Grace Kellys Granddaughter Charlotte Casiraghi Shows Off Baby Bump in Chic White Bathing Suit

Charlotte Casiraghi is getting ready to welcome Monaco’s newest royal!

The eldest granddaughter of Grace Kelly, who is expecting a child with fiancé Dimitri Rassam, was spotted out on a sunny day in Cap Ferret, France. The mom-to-be’s growing belly was on display in a chic one-piece bathing suit, which she wore  with a matching wide-brimmed hat.

The couple have been staying close to Monaco on a Mediterranean cruise, spotted in St. Tropez as well as sailing to the Italian island of Pantelleria, where Rassam’s mother, glamorous French actress and former Bond girl Carole Bouquet, has a vineyard.

A source previously told PEOPLE that Charlotte is “due late this summer, early September,” and friends suggest that the couple will marry in the spring.

After weeks of press speculation, the 32-year-old unveiled her bump during the Monte Carlo International Horse Jumping events in July. The news comes a few months after Princess Caroline of Monaco’s eldest daughter confirmed her engagement to Rassam by wearing a diamond ring on her left hand as they attended their first official Monaco event together in March.

The child will be the seventh grandchild for Princess Caroline (the 62-year-old royal’s clan has welcomed two additions since April) and the second grandchild for Dimitri’s mother.

Charlotte, who is ninth in line to Monaco’s throne, and the 36-year-old film producer (his credits include Netflix’s The Little Prince) quietly began seeing each other in Dec. 2016 after being introduced by friends over dinner. They got engaged in March while on ski vacation in Zurs, Austria, with Princess Caroline.

The couple are graduates of the Sorbonne University in Paris, and each have children from previous relationships: Charlotte has a 4-year old son, Raphael, with comedian Gad Elmaleh, and Dimitri has a daughter from his marriage to model Masha Novoselova.

Bristol Palin is one proud mama.

The new Teen Mom OG star, 27, shared an Instagram photo of her oldest son, Tripp, alongside his father, Levi Johnston, posing in front of a dead caribou —  which is very closely related to reindeer — with a hunting rifle.

Palin, who is originally from Alaska, couldn’t help but gush about her 9-year-old son’s “incredible life learning experiences” in her caption.

“So proud of my son, and super thankful for his dad and stepmom for providing him with such incredible life learning experiences at such a young age!! #provider #fillingthefreezer,” Palin wrote.

She added, “(and please before you start calling peta – remember where your beef/chicken come from.. it doesn’t get more organic than this).”

Sarah Palin, Tripp’s grandmother, also shared the photo on Tuesday and couldn’t stop gushing about her pride in his “successful harvest.”

“My grandkids’ smiles say it all: ‘There’s no WiFi out here, but there is no better connection!’ Proud of Tripp’s successful harvest with his dad; thankful my own dad taught us to hunt & harvest, conserve, get outdoors, eat organic, appreciate Alaska’s uniqueness, & respect America’s freedoms! 🇺🇸🏔,” she wrote in the caption.

What to Know Before Traveling to a Country with an Alcohol Ban After Arrest of UK Woman

What to Know Before Traveling to a Country with an Alcohol Ban After Arrest of UK Woman

A woman was recently arrested upon landing in Dubai, after consuming a complimentary glass of wine on her Emirates Airline flight.

While the topic of alcohol arose only after the passenger got into a heated argument with a border control agent over her expired travel visa, it raised questions about when, where and how visitors can drink when entering a country that has strict laws about consumption.

Ellie Holman, the U.K.-based dentist who was detained with her four-year-old daughter, had accepted a glass of wine aboard a flight on Emirates Airlines, which is based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates — a country with harsh penalties for drinking outside certain environments dictated by the law.

But according to Sarah Schlichter, Senior Editor at expert travel site smartertravel.com, it’s not that surprising she was served.

“Along with Emirates, Etihad (based in the UAE), Qatar Airways, and Royal Jordanian are among the airlines based in countries with heavy restrictions that do serve alcohol, while Saudia, EgyptAir, and Kuwait Airways don’t,” she says.

In Holman’s case, among myriad other accusations, the airport official told her she was breaking the law by “carrying” alcohol she’d already consumed inside her body. So is free alcohol (offered on many international flights) totally off limits?

“The safest thing to do,” says Schlichter, “is avoid alcohol all together, even if the drink is offered by an airline based in that country. While many travelers have a glass of wine on the plane and then get through customs and passport control without a problem, it’s always better to be safe than sorry.” She also recommends researching the laws and customs in your destination country before you depart.

“Have you had anything to drink?” is not necessarily a standard question upon entering a dry country, but, she says, “It varies — from agent to agent, country to country, and probably even day to day.”

And over indulging on the plane is best avoided. “Questions from border security agents typically cente
