I am very big into family, and I have a big family as well. 5 brothers and sisters (I'm the 5th of 6). 14 nieces and nephews (R Russell Patrick II joined us 10/13/13). 5 great-nephews & 6 great-nieces (Brooklyn Grace joined us 10/2/13). And no, with that many family members, I do not keep up with birthdays very well. Not well at ALL! Even with a master list on my fridge.
I'm also married. My husband and I got married here in San Antonio at the historic Sheraton Gunter Hotel downtown. And we are the proud parents of a 12 year old Alaskan Husky named Moo and three 1 year old kittens: Wicket, Willow, and Winter.
Like all Texas moms, I made my kid pose in the bluebonnets.

Congratulations go out to One Direction's Zayn Malik on his engagement to Little Mix's Perrie Edwards!
They've been dating for quite some time now, 2 years. Zayn even recently got Perrie's face tattooed on his bicep.
Above you can see the bling Perrie is sporting. She showed it off on the 18th at the London premiere of 1D's new movie 'This Is Us.' According to sources, Zayn proposed by getting down on one knee during a romantic weekend for just the two of them.
Perrie's mom and brother are excited about the news as are Zayn's One Direction buds.
Zayn and Perrie have a lot in common. They're both 20 and both got famous through bands formed on Britain's "X Factor."
