“Thank you to all the fans who honored our Scarlett yesterday,” Teefey wrote to fans and supporters. “Dec 17th will never be the same, but we decide to celebrate her by writing her letters on red balloons and releasing them.”

According to Teefey’s post, Scarlett was her second pregnancy between Selena Gomez and her youngest, Gracie Elliot Teefey. Teefey mentions in the post that she had to delete and disable the comments after some began writing offensive messages.

“Thank you to the people who respected my post and sent love to Scarlett,” Teefey wrote. “I’m sorry I had to take them down. I am disturbed at the words being posted on this from people who can even find an [opportunity] to be vile about a lost baby. You don’t like me, don’t spend time on me.”

Teefey did give her “13 Reasons Why” family a special shout out in the post for the kind words she received that day. Teefey and Selena are executive producers on the Netflix show. The second season finished filming on the anniversary of her miscarriage.

“Family is what matters, blood or not, #family13 made me smile and feel loved when so needed and they didn’t know,” Teefey said. She added: “Fans, I want you to know you are family because I have a huge family and you are the only ones who remember! XO forever.”

#VoteLikeAMadre Is Committing Latinas To Vote To Save The Planet For Their Children

The 2020 election is heating up. There are a lot of hot button issues at stake from reproductive rights and affordable access to healthcare to climate change and civil rights. The Latino Victory Project is using their resources to get Latinas to commit to voting with the understanding that their children will inherit the world they leave behind. Here’s how.

The #VoteLikeAMadre campaign is just that, voting like a mother.

The campaign is getting people, specifically Latinas, to vote for their children. Climate change is one of the most pressing issues facing people during the 2020 elections. That is why #VoteLikeAMadre is asking for people to pinky promise a better future for their children using their ability to vote.

The campaign hinges on the most important promise you can make to your kids: a pinky promise.

A pinky promise is so important with the children, you know. We all remember making our parents make pinky promises to make things happen for us to to give us things we really wanted. They were unbreakable promises that you constantly reminded your parents of making.

People are already taking the pledge to vote for candidates who have plans to combat climate change.

An estimated 1 billion people live in areas that are being affected by climate change. These people could all become climate refugees by 2050. That is one-seventh of the world’s population being displaced because of climate change. Our actions now can help to mitigate some of the damage that scientists expect.

People of color are among the most vulnerable communities when it comes to the negatives affects of climate change.

Latinos, as well as other communities of color, put a lot of importance on the climate crisis. Environmental justice is an issue that Latinos have been fighting for as our communities are often subjected to negative climate and environmental issues. According to a Yale study on climate change, Latinos are the most concerned about the climate crisis and its impact.

Early voters are already following through with their promises to fight for the climate.

Fighting for the climate is the same as fighting for the children. It is not a surprise that those who are younger will be the ones to inherit and live on the planet longer. Actions now can either ruin or save the planet and its climate for the generations to come.

“Many people assume that the only people who really care about climate change are white, well-educated, upper-middle-income, latte-sipping liberals, and it’s just not true,” Anthony Leiserowitz, director of the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication told PBS. “Actually, the racial and ethnic group that cares more about climate change than any other is Latinos.”

Kehlani Shows Off Her Baby Girl For The First Time

One of the lovely benefits of being on maternity leave is spending good old quality time with your new baby. So, while others are grinding away at work putting in their 9 to 5, mothers are at home nursing their infants — and working just as hard. Kehlani is one of those mothers making it look so cute. Kehlani is tearing up social media today with a sweet post showing herself nursing her baby and it is making hearts melt.

Kehlani posted the very first picture of her new baby girl and ti is giving everyone all of the feels.

Instagram/@kehlani

While we can’t see her daughter’s face, Kehani’s smile says it all. We’re so thrilled to see her looking so happy, especially after she opened up about her intense at home birth and her prenatal depression.

Late last year she said on social media that being pregnant took a toll on her mental health.

“I’ve been getting lots of preggie folks saying I been making it look easy, and how they wish their pregnancy was/is going the same as mine seems to be…. I will say this: the internet makes everything look lovely and wonderful. Two days away from the 3rd trimester and this has been the hardest thing ever. From not knowing anything about prenatal depression nor understanding it while it’s been hitting me like a bag of bricks to being very isolated and alone internally and externally these days, to just the normal terrible sleep/no appetite/anxiety.”

Kehlani welcomed her baby girl last month alongside baby daddy Javaughn Young-White.

People are loving this post by Kehlani and her daughter.

The emotions on Twitter just intensified after this. Not only is Kehlani letting us in the personal details of her life with a photo fo her bundle of joy, she is also showing how normal breastfeeding is. #QUEEN

You know when a picture is just too cute and your brain can’t take it? Well, that’s everyone right now.

It’s like a brain freeze except it doesn’t hurt as much. Kehlani’s smile and confidence in the picture says it all. Motherhood looks good on her and we could all be so lucky to experience motherhood with that kind of ease.

Seeing Kehlani nursing her baby was too much for some people.

We can all hear this image because we all probably made the same sound when we first saw it. Like, damn Kehlani. You made everyone’s morning that much more adorable and we thank you for it.

The cuteness level is beyond.

These are not tears of sadness, but of pure joy. Who has the tissues? Kehlani’s fans will be crying through the rest of the week as they keep staring at these sweet family portraits.

A picture of Wendy Williams crying heart tears is the perfect reaction, tbh.

This is only the first picture Kehlani has shared. We’re certain she’ll share some more, at least that’s what we’re hoping for. We just want to see her Baby Bear grow up and be as strong as her incredible Momma Bear.

Kehlani’s happiness is making us want to hug the first person we see!

Congratulations again, Kehlani! Motherhood looks so good on you and it seems like the bundle of joy is bringing you unlimited joy. We can’t think of anyone who deserves this more.
