The first-time mama and her husband Ty Murray have already compiled quite the collection of costumes for their son Kase Townes.
“He’s going to be about five different things, he’s going to have more costume changes than a Cher concert,” Jewel, 38, tells PEOPLE exclusively. “He’s going to be a chicken, a hammerhead shark [and] a little monkey. [And] at least two other ones.”
But for her baby boy’s day-to-day style, the songstress and children’s book author works to keep a balance between comfortable and country.
“There are days that I put him in little cowboy boots and a little plaid shirt, which is very cute,” says Jewel, who lives with her family (and their menagerie of animals!) on their 2,400-acre Texas ranch.
And while the new parents are still “grooming” their 15-month-old to help with the farm’s daily chores, Jewel shares he is excelling at all of his major milestones — including perfecting his furry friends’ signature sounds.
“He makes lots of animal sounds. He can do the monkey, the dog, the goat, the duck,” she reveals, adding he imitates the animals when he spots them on the property. “Especially cows. He likes the cows a lot.”

We’re all so used to seeing the good guy win at the end of films, but in reality, it just seems unrealistic, and so often, tacked on to satisfy more casual audiences who simply want pure, silly escapism. That’s why, then, these 10 endings have stuck in our minds, in which the bad guy defeats the hero at the end, with the viewer still feeling satisfied, arguably more so than had everything been neatly tied up.
It goes without saying, of course, that massive spoilers lie ahead…
10. Primal Fear
Edward Norton delivers a masterful, Oscar-nominated performance as Aaron Stampler, the seemingly shy and retiring altar boy who ends up being accused of murdering an archbishop. It’s Norton’s searing turn that keeps us on edge, preventing us from twigging the sublime twist ending to Gregory Hoblit’s cracking thriller, in which it turns out that, yes, Aaron was the bad guy all along. Over the course of the film, we learn that Aaron has a second personality called Roy who appears to have caused the murder, yet at the film’s climax, we learn that Roy – or in fact, Aaron – never existed, and that Norton’s character simply concocted an elaborate lie, such that he would spend a few months in an asylum and then end up back on the streets soon enough.
Twist endings can feel cheap and forced, but Primal Fear’s works because while it’s a swerve, it’s also backed up by not only Norton’s commanding performance, but a live-wire script that, surprisingly, doesn’t feel convoluted.
Chord, is that you in there!?
We hardly recognized you beautifully proportioned face underneath all that wild faux facial hair!
You absolutely must ch-ch-check out this HIGHlariously awesome parody of Brad Pitt‘s now infamous Chanel No. 5 commercial (above)!!
Glee star Chord Overstreet goes above and beyond the call of duty in making this knee-slapper and he looks oddly fine doing it!!
Watch your back, Brad!!
Chord does such a convincing impression that Angelina Jolie might mistake his moneyballz for yours without even knowing it, LOLz!!!

Rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars
Islamic disarray in the Western world will be a ripe theme in fiction for decades to come in light of 9/11, yet Mira Nair’s bloated, meandering take on Mohsin Hamid’s 2007 novel of the same name can’t seem to tease viewer engagement out of what is without question a worthy and timely story.
Now a militant Muslim lecturer back in Lahore, Changez (Riz Ahmed) recounts his story so far to a sceptical American journalist (Liev Schreiber), detailing his promising career as a young Wall Street up-start, during which he falls for a free-spirited artist (Kate Hudson), before the post-9/11 spectre ruins the party, and he leaves for Pakistan amid a miasmal fog of American xenophobia.
It isn’t long into The Reluctant Fundamentalist that Nair drops the ball, her heavy-handed direction – admittedly working from a problematic script – preventing the film from functioning as a neatly subdued tale of a man’s dilemma over which obligations are going to define his life. Nair sledgehammers home this narrative crux with aggressive – but not passionate – enthusiasm, as though we wouldn’t quite “get” it otherwise.
Riz Ahmed, however, is a star in the making, and somewhat rises above the murky material, with his persuasive screen presence, playing someone who will no doubt remind many of his similarly conflicted character in Chris Morris’ satire Four Lions. However, Changez feels less like a well-wrought character in his own right, and more a mouthpiece to spark audience debate.
Similarly, supporting players do their best to compensate for the narrative misgivings; Schreiber is as reliable as ever, and playing financier Jim Cross, Kiefer Sutherland gets to stretch himself a bit. Kate Hudson on the other hand feels miscast as the love interest, blandly forgettable in a way that only makes the slack drama decay even faster in our minds.
Mira Nair again reminds us of her frustrating inconsistency as a filmmaker, enlisting a fine cast and strong technicals – Declan Quinn’s sumptuous cinematography is particularly enchanting – but failing to cover the, ahem, fundamentals first.

As a child actress, Tamera Mowry-Housley has done her fair share of press events, but now that she’s all grown up and due with her first child — a boy! — the mom-to-be is shining in the spotlight more than ever.
From girlie dresses and colorblock minis to form-fitting frocks paired with tailored blazers, the expectant actress (and her burgeoning belly) always look stylish. We especially like how Mowry-Housley shows off her gorgeous gams.
Our fave outfits? The red hot pleated dress (left) she wore in April, the A Pea in the Pod‘s Colorblock Maternity Dress (middle) she donned in August and the Susana Monaco‘s Shirring Detail Maternity Dress (right) she rocked in July. Her pink stripe Nicole Miller body-hugging tunic and Rachel Pally graphic print dress were also winners.
So how does the pregnant mama feel about her growing curves and evolving maternity style?
“I’m embracing my new body and its changes… So what if my behind is spreading as wide as the continent of North America,” Mowry-Housley recently joked in her PEOPLE blog.
