The Queen is the head of England but a wife to Phillip. Who do you think is most humble? My wish for you is to look at Oliver and thank God for him in your life. God is blessing you with another child, may be more through him. Teach him how to be humble through your example of utmost humility in your thoughts, words and deeds towards him and your bundles of joy. May God continue to bless you both. CONGRATULATIONS.

To Oliver and Barry, you have reached a point in life that you know not all people will wish you well and those who would rather be in your shoes. But look into each other’s eyes and the bundlesof joy God blesses you both with and be forever greatful to Him the Creator. May He continue to bless you abundantly in Jesus name.
Halle Berry, Jennifer Garner testify on paparazzi bill
See the note below for details. August 14, 2013, 11:33 a.m. Actresses Halle Berry and Jennifer Garner testified in Sacramento on Tuesday in support of a bill aimed at protecting the children of celebrities and public officials from paparazzi. Senate Bill 606, proposed by Sen. Kevin DeLeon (D-Los Angeles), would change the legal definition of harassment to include any conduct that “alarms, annoys torments or terrorizes” a child while photographing or recording that child without express parental consent. The legislation specifically mentions photography that involves “following the child’s activities or lying in wait” and targeting a child because of a parent’s line of work. The actresses said they appeared before the legislative committee as mothers concerned for the safety of their children, who aren’t celebrities. Garner said she made the decision to have a public life when she chose her career, but her children are private citizens, just like anyone else’s. “I don’t want a gang of shouting, arguing, law-breaking photographers who camp out everywhere we are, all day, every day, to continue to traumatize my kids,” she said, according to the Associated Press. Berry, who is pregnant, said she was trying to protect her children and protect their rights, and that the constant presence of photographers yelling and snapping pictures has made her young daughter afraid to go to school. It was her second appearance in Sacramento this summer to testify in support of the bill. “They are allowed to be so close to her that they can shout obscenities to me and ask her questions that are inappropriate for a 5-year-old to have to answer,” Berry said, according to the Sacramento Bee.
