Actors Gabrielle Union and Zach Braff star in the Disney+ remake of "Cheaper By The Dozen" which premiered on Friday, March 18.

Union and Braff star as Paul and Zoey Baker, the interracial parents of a large blended family of 10 kids.

Union, who also executive produced the movie, said she normally doesn't do family-oriented movies, but she changed her mind after reading the script.

"When I first read the script ... I wanted to be a part of something that our whole family could watch together and, you've seen some of my work, I don't do a lot of family-friendly type of stuff. So, I felt not only was it the perfect time for my own family but I think it's the perfect time for all the families who want to see different kinds of folks and different kinds of families reflected and celebrated on screen."

Union, 49, who shares daughter Kaavia James, 3, with husband Dwyane Wade, 40, said she couldn't manage a large family in real life.

"[The kids would be like], 'Mom went to the store, and in six years she hasn't returned!'" she joked.

"I think we are at max capacity at the Wade-Union household and that's why Zoey Baker is a fictitious character!"

Honey Boo Boo is all grown up and in a relationship with a Black college student, according to her family.

The 16-year-old, real name Alana Thompson, and 20-year-old beau Dralin Carswell have been dating or six months, according to The U.S. Sun.

Honey Boo gained fame as a 6-year-old contestant in TLC's beauty pageant reality show Toddlers & Tiaras. She went on to star in her own reality TV show, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, in 2012.

Mama June Shannon and Alana's sisters approve of the teenager's relationship with a grown man.

"Dralin and Alana are attached at the hip and hang out together all the time," an insider tells The Sun.

"He was quiet at first, but he's like one of the family now. He's just as fun and crazy as the rest of them."

The source confirmed that Dralin, who attended a Nashville, Tennessee technical school before the lockdowns, moved to Georgia after the pandemic hit.

The couple made their relationship public in an Instagram post in March when she was 15, but no one seemed to notice.

The Sun notes that Mama June, pictured with Alana in 2016, is not following Dralin on Facebook, though the rest of the family follows him.

In her interview with Teen Vogue, Alana said Dralin is her only real friend in life. She said her fame as a child model made it hard for her to find friends.

"I want to be the best I can be, and I want to make my money, and I also want to make straight A's, so I just try my hardest," she told the magazine.

The legal age for a consensual sex with an adult in Georgia is 16.

JoJo Siwa says she's the "happiest" she's "ever been" since coming out as part of the LGBT+ community.

She is pictured above at her Sweet 16 birthday party with guests (L-R) Ryan Romulus, North West, Penelope Disick and a friend in April 2019.

The 17-year-old dancer, singer, actress, and YouTube personality, born Joelle Joanie Siwa, has built a career around her public image of an ageless pre-teen wearing colorful hair bows and rainbow clothing.

Her catchy songs include "Boomerang" and "Kid in a Candy Store," and she appeared on "Dance Moms" for two seasons along with her mother, Jessalyn Siwa.

JoJo sparked rampant speculation when she began dropping hints on social media that suggested she was planning to come out of the closet - including wearing a "best gay cousin ever" T-shirt and lip-syncing along to Lady Gaga's hit song "Born This Way."

On Saturday, Jan. 23, she went live on Instagram to tell her pre-teen fans:

"Personally, I have never, ever, ever been this happy before and it feels really awesome. I've been happy for a little bit now. It's just so, so, so awesome. You guys probably haven't seen me this happy since I was on tour."

JoJo stopped short of giving herself a label, instead identifying as simply "part of" the LGTB+ community.

"The reason I'm not going to say this answer is because I don't really know this answer. I think humans are awesome, I think humans are really incredible people," she explained. "Right now, I'm super-duper happy and I want to share everything with the world, but I also want to keep things in my life private until they are ready to be public.”

Parents of JoJo's adolescent fans were skeptical about her coming out party. Many believe she is simply hopping on the LGBT+ bandwagon because her career as an adolescent singer and dancer is fading fast.
