Will Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson give True a sibling?
Khloe Kardashian's made it clear in recent months that when it comes to co-parenting, things are pretty copacetic between her and her ex, Tristan Thompson. What we didn't realize until Thursday, April 16's "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," the former couple hasn't ruled out having another child together, biologically speaking, anyway. At one point during the episode, Khloe and Tristan are Facetiming while Cleveland Cavaliers star goes through their 2-year-old's old toys. He says he's not sure about getting rid of all of it, asking his ex (via People), "What happens if we have another girl? We have to buy it all over again." Khloe, who kicked Tristan to the curb after she learned he hooked up with Jordyn Woods last year, then asks, "Who is having another girl with you?" From there, the two start sounding like they've talked about the possibility before. "Listen, I'm just saying, True does need a sibling," he says. "I might get some embryos and get a sibling," replies Khloe. "I might need to borrow some sperm or get some from you. We'll figure that out later." She laughs and jokes, "That's a whole other episode … so awkward." The rest of the episode largely shows Khloe struggling to get comfortable with the idea of sharing custody of True during Tristan's NBA season — the first one they'll be apart for. "You get territorial, like, 'This is my baby, why are you telling me what to do?'" she tells her mom at one point, admitting she's "been avoiding" talking about how True will visit her dad, even though he "really misses" her. "Honestly and truthfully, I want us to have a peaceful friendship," she says. In the end, Khloe flies to Cleveland with True before leaving her there with her dad — and says her initial "anxiety" was misplaced. "Tristan is asking all the right questions, he's being super attentive," she says. "That makes me feel a lot better about everything."

Naomi Watts makes 'friends' with her 'enemies,' the household cleaning supplies
Slowly but surely, Naomi Watts is getting the hang of this quarantine thang. It's been a multi-step process, though. It's also been kind of fun to watch unfold on Instagram. Let's start at the end since we now live in upside-down world anyway, shall we? On Friday, April 17, the actress shared a hilarious video montage, complete with animated special effects, that showed how she transformed her relationship with household cleaning supplies from "enemies" to "friends." In a nutshell, she threw on a happy "love" T-shirt and her most punk rock attitude — really, there's some good mop-headbanging action in the clip — and cleaned her floors as lightning bolts egged her on. The jokey post comes a week after a much more frustrated Naomi shared a peek at the breakdown she had after three key appliances plus a blender (plus a computer one of her kids needed for his home school work) all went kerpluie in some fashion. The middle ground, it seems, was her embrace of National Stress Awareness Day on Thursday. "Glad there's a day for this, as I know we are all feeling it right now. Globally!!" she posted on the 'Gram. "I'm giving myself permission to feel all of it!! (And not just on the 'stress day') I feel like I have 7056 different emotions going on all day/everyday. Covering the entire spectrum of dark to light. It's ok to walk through all of it…the greatest comfort is knowing that we're all in it together. Right?" She signed off by assuring followers "we will come through this, having learned so many valuable things along the way," then sent her love to all and her gratitude to "our true heroes," the workers on the frontlines of the pandemic, adding, "XOX #breathe ♥️."

Reese Witherspoon talks postpartum depression, anxiety and the need for more research
Reese Witherspoon wants to see more attention given to the connection between a woman's mental and reproductive health. Speaking to Jameela Jamil on the Friday, April 17, edition of her "I Weigh" podcast, Reese opened up about how her anxiety and depression changed over time, especially once she began having kids. She first went to therapy at 16, she said (via People). "I definitely had anxiety, my anxiety manifests as depression so I would get really depressed. My brain is like a hamster on a wheel and it won't come off. I've been managing it my entire life," said Reese, 44. Things became unpredictable, mental health-wise, after she gave birth to her children, Ava, now 20, Deacon, 16, and Tennessee, 7. "After each child I had a different experience. One kid I had kind of mild postpartum, and one kid I had severe postpartum where I had to take pretty heavy medication because I just wasn't thinking straight at all," she shared. "And then I had one kid where I had no postpartum at all." When Ava was born, Reese said she was so young and uninformed about what to expect, emotionally, that it really took a toll. "We don't understand the kind of hormonal roller coaster that you go on when you stop nursing. No one explained that to me," she said. "I was 23 years old when I had my first baby and nobody explained to me that when you wean a baby, your hormones go into the toilet. I felt more depressed than I'd ever felt in my whole life. It was scary." From Reese's perspective, "there just isn't enough research" being done on how women are affected by "the hormonal shifts" pregnancy and childbirth bring about. For Reese, learning more about what women are experiencing and why is key if we're ever going to de-stigmatize mental health issues.
