Now that major events like Fashion Week and award season have wrapped up, it's time for celebrities to get back to work — or, in some cases, vacation. This week, Nicole Richie and Jessica Alba made the press rounds to promote their respective projects, while Alessandra Ambrosio and Ashley Tisdale hit the beach. Kim Kardashian showed love to a cute little puppy, and Ian Somerhalder hit the red carpet with internet sensation Grumpy Cat. Down in Austin, TX, for South by Southwest, Selena Gomez got to visit with family, and Nikki Reed snapped silly photos with her husband, Paul McDonald.

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill touched down in London today with their three daughters, Gracie, Maggie, and Audrey. The group later reemerged for a walk around the city after changing into warmer outfits. They're overseas just a few days ahead of the Country to Country concert at the O2 arena this weekend. It's the first ever C2C festival and will include performances by Tim, LeAnn Rimes, Carrie Underwood, and more. Faith isn't one of the confirmed artists, but she's no stranger to sharing the stage with Tim. The couple, who have toured together in the past, currently hold residency at the Venetian in Las Vegas, where they perform their Soul2Soul shows. They're on a break from the Sin City schedule and will return for additional dates next month before wrapping up the limited engagement on April 27. Tim will be back on the road shortly after, though, for his Two Lanes of Freedom tour that runs through July.
Penélope Cruz rocked a black bikini on the beach in Barbados yesterday. She showed off her pregnant belly in a two-piece as she hit the sand with friends and swam with her son, Leo. Penélope and her family are vacationing at the Caribbean island's Sandy Lane Hotel just weeks after announcing the exciting news that they're expanding their family. Last month, Penélope and her husband, Javier Bardem, shared that they are expecting their second child after weeks of speculation. The duo have kept a low profile since late last year, though they did visit a Madrid park together in January.

Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner met up for an afternoon at the batting cages with friends in LA on Tuesday. Kristen arrived in a plaid shirt and cutoff shorts and sipped on a Red Bull, but later changed into a baseball tee and donned a helmet to show off her swing. When she wasn't up to bat, she and a pal watched Taylor hit balls from a nearby bench. Kristen and Taylor have been spending time together while Robert Pattinson is busy filming Rover in Australia. The duo met up for a concert last week at The Troubador, where they were joined by Katy Perry's assistant Tamra Natisin. Tamra has also become one of Kristen's recent companions after the two caught a different LA show together earlier this month.
Kristen may be enjoying downtime while Rob is at work, but she'll soon be back in the spotlight, since The Road is returning to theaters later this month. The movie, which was originally released last year, will be available again in select theaters and on demand starting March 22.
Heidi Klum greeted fans today at Lady Foot Locker in Culver City, CA, where she unveiled her new collection of workout wear for New Balance. The supermodel mom is a fitness inspiration for many women, and she told us that she had both comfort and style in mind when designing the line. Heidi also told us that her motivation for the days when she doesn't feel like exercising is motherhood itself! We also chatted with her about her new job as a judge on America's Got Talent opposite Mel B., Howard Stern and Howie Mandel and heard about some of the strangest acts she's had to judge so far. Check out highlights from our chat:
- On her new job as a judge on America's Got Talent: "I have to say, last year I watched AGT from home, and I would be like, 'I don't know why this person is here. That person should not be here.' But when you are there and you see the people, it's a little different. I feel more for them and it's harder for me to push the "X" immediately. So I usually wait and let them do their thing. It's hard to go on stage."
- On how her kids motivate her to work out: "I have four children. I always have two dogs, and I live very close to a canyon. I take them for a hike. I don't necessarily have to time to get in the car, go to the gym, be there for an hour, get back in the car . . .But if I have an hour, the children and my dogs, we just go up the canyon. Or I have a trampoline in my backyard — I go and jump on that.
- On why she thinks looking good is important even mid-workout: "Wearing something cute, for me, gives me like an extra boost to go a little harder. If you're all schlumpy and you have oversize things on, or raggedy things that should be already in the bin, then you feel kind of sluggish."
