Hot hot hot man. Wander when he is going to do another film.

And it’s nice that no one is accussing him of having too kids. The girls are beutiful and I bet the other two are pleasant on the eyes too.

Beautiful girls! Nina’s shoes look like converse, and she is wearing a pettiskirt – possibly by Kaiya Eve?

Taegan did you mean too many kids? Why would anyone accuse him of having too many children?

lizzielui- I’m pretty sure Taegan did mean “too many kids”. That said, I understand where she’s coming from. People are constantly criticizing Brad and Angelina (not just on CBB, but on other sites as well.) for having four kids (now soon to be five).

When the news came out that they were adopting Pax, for example, people practically started a riot. They were saying things such as “they should enjoy the three they already have”, “they should stop at three”, etc. When Brad announced this past fall that he and Angie were ready to have a fifth child, people again made comments about how they “should stop at four”, have “too many children”, etc.

I think what Taegan meant is that it’s nice that LL Cool J, who also has four kids, isn’t facing that same critcism.
