See why we’re stopping at Starbucks this morning:

• Rihanna may be at the height of her career, but she told Ellen DeGeneres yesterday that family life is not far off in the future. When asked if she wants kids, the pop-singer said, “Eventually. I mean, absolutely.” However, she doesn’t want to raise them alone. “I would prefer to… have a full family,” said Rihanna. “I’m pretty sure I could handle [a family] if I had to on my own, but that’s not what I’m striving far.” [People]

• Congratulations to Beverly Johnson’s daughter Anansa Sims and her husband on their new little boy. The couple welcomed David Bernard Patterson III last Tuesday. He came in weighing 8 lbs., 13 oz. It’s the second child for the couple. [People]
