UFC Star Conor McGregor Arrives at New York Courthouse After Bus Attack Arrest

Ultimate fighting star Conor McGregor has arrived at the courthouse. He had been brought out of a New York City police station in handcuffs after a backstage melee that forced the removal of three fights from UFC’s biggest card of the year.

McGregor, looking composed, held his chin up as he walked toward an unmarked police vehicle on Friday morning.

He did not acknowledge a throng of journalists or two onlookers who shouted messages of support.

Video footage appears to show the promotion’s most bankable star throwing a hand truck at a bus full of fighters after a Thursday news conference for UFC 223 at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

It was not immediately known if McGregor has an attorney who could comment on his behalf.

9 great gifts to give older siblings when a new baby arrives

by

Sabrina Garibian

posted in Products

Having a second (or third, or, in my case, fourth) child is a great gift to other children in the family. But life will change in infinite ways, and sometimes that transition can be a little tough on an older sibling. I’ve come up with a bag of tricks and gifts for older siblings when a new baby arrives.

Tricks:

1. Make sure to still carve out time for your older children without the baby around. This is obviously easier said than done, but you can use little pockets of nap time for this.

2. Include older children in caring for the newest member of the family so they feel involved too.

3. Don’t always ask older children to wait. Even though it sounds silly when you’re saying it, occasionally tell your crying baby he has to wait while you tend to your older ones.

Gifts:

A lot of second-time-around moms focus only on what their newborn might need in those early days. I think that’s a mistake! I put together a little box of gifts and activities to help make those first months easier for everyone. With a newborn at home it isn’t always easy to get to the park or go on adventures, so having a few little gifts to make those long afternoons pass by is a brilliant idea.

9 great gifts to give older siblings when a new baby arrives:

1. Toysmith Neato! Marbles in a Tin Box (Amazon, $ 9.99/160 marbles)

marbles in a tin box great gifts for older siblings

If your children are old enough that marbles are not a choking hazard, this is a great gift to give them when baby arrives. My children will play with marbles for hours, from sorting them by color, to playing classic marble games, to building marble runs, to pretending the marbles are a family going on a treasure hunt. Sometimes the most simple toys are the best toys.

2. Yoobi Journal (Yoobi, $ 5.99)

What child doesn’t love a fresh notebook of lined paper? My 6-year-old has been writing and drawing in his Yoobi journal daily since he got it in November. As a parent it’s really fun to flip through it to see what’s on his mind on a daily basis. I look forward to giving each of our older children one of these journals after the baby is born to keep a record of their thoughts during this special time together.

3. Bubble Bum backless booster car seat (Amazon, $ 29.99)

I can’t say enough great things about the Bubble Bum booster seats. You can fit three across in virtually any vehicle. Because they are inflatable, portable, and foldable, it’s super easy to bring on vacation or on a day trip. My mother-in-law is not comfortable driving my big car with my big car seats, but transferring the car seats from my car to hers is also a pain. Instead, I quickly install the Bubble Bum seats in her back seat and my kids are ready to go out for a day of fun. After giving birth for the fourth time, I know I will feel thankful for an easy way for anyone to take my older children out for the day.

4. Lakeshore Learning Arts & Crafts Supply Center (Amazon, $ 49.99)

arts and crafts supply center

This would have been my dream as a kid. On a rainy day or one of those never-ending snow days, you can bust out this arts and crafts supply center and let your children go to town. I imagine my kids will make some cards for their new baby sister!

5. Corolle Mon Premiere Bebe Bath Doll (Amazon, $ 39.99)

corolle bath doll

Don’t scoff at the price tag of this baby doll. This is the best doll your children will ever have. It is lightly vanilla scented, which is just lovely. And you can take her in the bath with you! Kids love role-playing, and with a new baby around they will love being able to give their baby doll a bath while you give your real baby a bath. My children — even my son — all love these Corolle bath dolls.

6. Re-Play 7″ Flat Plates, set of 6 (Re-Play, $ 18.50)

replay plates gifts for older siblings

We are obsessed with these plates! They are just the right size for a meal, and the lip means that they keep messes to a minimum, even when my kids eat pasta or rice. We are about to have four children in this home eating breakfast, lunch, and dinner, so adding to our plate collection makes sense after the baby is born.

7. Koko’s Candy Necklaces, box of 100 (CandyStore.com, $ 20.99)

candy necklaces

I tend to break some of my arbitrary parenting rules right after a new baby is born. This is one of them! I know the transition to having a younger sibling can be hard, so I like having a few types of candy on hand for rewards for exceptional behavior. Older sibling gets baby’s blanket without me asking? Have a candy necklace! Baby keeps crying and older sibling don’t complain? Reward them with a candy necklace! This is not how I would usually handle daily life, but it sure is fun to ignore our rules now and again and have some fun. These candy necklaces are reasonably priced and individually wrapped.

8. L.O.L. Surprise dolls (Amazon, $ 9.99) and Little Green Men (Amazon, $ 9.99)

little green men

Surprise packs, mystery packs, blind bags — no matter how you slice it, the thrill of the mystery makes these toys so alluring. L.O.L. surprise dolls are a huge hit with all the little girls in my life. You unwrap a ball layer by layer, revealing clues along the way. In the center of the ball you find a doll! My girls love playing with their L.O.L. dolls and accessories. Similarly, Little Green Men come with a mystery soldier. They also come with dog tags and chains, which my son loves. Both L.O.L. dolls and Little Green Men are fun little toys to play with, to bring to restaurants, or to entertain children while they have to wait somewhere.

9. Melissa & Doug Wooden Stamp Set (Amazon, $ 9.99)

There are about a million of these stamp sets, and they all have fun themes. I keep a stash of them hidden and bring them out when we need to fill up a long afternoon. My kids like to make scenes with the different stamp sets. I love that they come with colored pencils too.

Bringing a baby into your home can be stressful, but it’s also such a special, joyful time in your life. Get prepared by considering how you will occupy your older children’s time during this exciting transition.

Katy Perry Arrives at iHeartRadio Music Awards in First Appearance Since Split from Orlando Bloom

Katy Perry stunned on the red carpet at Sunday’s iHeartRadio Music Awards and will bring her latest single “Chained to the Rhythm” to the stage yet again in her first public appearance since she announced her split from Orlando Bloom.

Perry, 32, has been busy promoting the song, also performing at the BRIT Awards in the U.K. and the Grammys in Los Angeles.

She even sported a new ‘do — plus a pantsuit — at the annual show, flaunting her blonde pixie haircut. She initially revealed the hair style in an Instagram post, writing, “I WASNT READY TILL NOW.”

After radio host Elvis Duran remarked on the media scrutiny of her new look, Perry joked, “Well yeah, if you’re going this extreme it should, hello! I’m trying to get more attention.”  She added, “You can just grow it back. Honestly, I tried to take platinum and I had a lot of breakage. I always wanted to have that pixie haircut so I said, ‘Let’s just go for it.’ I want to redefine what it means to be feminine.”

In true Perry fashion, the “Teenage Dream” singer is expected to give a high-energy performance — featuring some small children, if her Saturday Instagram post is any indication.

Just days before the show, Perry took to Twitter to shut down any rumors of a drama-filled breakup.

“HOW BOUT A NEW WAY OF THINKING FOR 2017!? U can still b friends & love ur former partners! No one’s a victim or a villain, get a life y’all,” she tweeted.

“Before rumors or falsifications get out of hand, we can confirm that Orlando and Katy are taking respectful, loving space at this time,” both their reps said Tuesday in a statement to PEOPLE.

All seemed to be well in the pair’s relationship as Bloom, 40, celebrated Perry’s 32nd birthday with her in October and the former love birds spent time with each other’s families. Bloom and Perry jetted off on PDA-filled vacations and even went all out for Halloween together.

However, a Perry source recently told PEOPLE that the romance was “never really supposed to be serious.”

“When it first started, she was basically like ‘This will be fun for now,’ ” the source sad. A insider close to Bloom told PEOPLE that the actor was “happy and content” spending time with Perry, but “was not in the mindset to settle down.”

Bloom’s pal said that the relationship had been “shaky” for awhile, adding that there was “nothing dramatic or over the top,” but the stars simply drifted apart.

The Perry source noted that the relationship “just became more and more work to make it work.”

“This really wasn’t a bad breakup for her,” the source said. “ was a lot harder for her. This just ran its course.”

The pair began dating back in January 2016 with a source telling PEOPLE then that they looked “very happy.” They grew closer throughout the year, and a source told PEOPLE in August: “ would love to settle down with Katy and have more kids.”
