Bill Klein and Jen Arnold have endured a very long struggle to become parents, so not surprisingly now they've achieved their dream they are happier than anybody could possibly imagine! The proud parents recently completed the adoption of their son, Will—an adorable three-year-old from China who, like his famous folks, is a little person—now the reality stars are opening up about their joy at adding to their family, and in an exclusive interview with OKMagazine.com they critique each other's parenting skills and talk about work/family balance. Jen Arnold and Bill Klein are loving every minute of being mom and dad to adorable son Will Fans of TLC's The Little Couple will not be shocked to learn that easy going, big hearted Bill is an amazing dad, and according to wife Jen he has already earned the title of "fun dad!" Photos: Meet Bill Klein and Jennifer Arnold's Son Will! "I knew Bill was going to be an awesome dad," Jen says. "He's wanted to be a dad as long as I've known him and you know, he is just that… and to be honest, one of the best things I love to see is Bill having fun and just horsing around with Will. Will made his TV debut on the Katie Couric show last month alongside his proud parents! "As you can imagine, Bill is a big kid himself—he's perfectly content to be the fun dad, and that's officially Bill's name.. he is fun dad.. and he always knows how to find the tickle spot on Will and he can always make him laugh. In fact, when Will is angry and trying to throw a temper tantrum—and all 3-year-olds have their moments—Bill starts laughing at him and then all of a sudden Will can't decide if he wants to laugh or cry, trying to hold back from laughing while he's trying to throw a temper tantrum which i think is great! But anyway, Bill is definitely fun dad and I am the mean maintenance mom!" Photos: The Little Couple Stars Show off Their New Son However, according to Bill, it's not all about "mean maintenance" there's plenty of fun mom in Jen too, and he's quick to give his 3'2" wife plenty of props when it comes to her juggling her devotion to work—Jen's a neonatologist at Texas Children's Hospital—with her obvious devotion to their son. Bill and Jen adopted three-year-old Will from China, he has a form of dwarfism just like his famous folks "Everybody that's watched the show knows that Jen's selfless," Bill says. "She's devoted to her family, she's devoted to her job—and you know, she's as cute as a button! But you know, what she's impressed me the most is with her ability to be.. what's the word… I mean, she's a patient and loving mom, and I really don't understand how she's able to do it the way she does! The Little Couple Hear Heartbreaking News Of Their Children's Possible Health Issues "But she does, she's able to juggle professional stuff—and stress from work—and when she comes home she somehow, she's able to shrug that stuff off and say 'you know what, this is mommy time and time with my son and I'm not going to be thinking about that stuff… I'm going to focus on my son, and when she does, it's like everything else, you know, with a laser beam and she's really, really good at everything. Not surprisingly, when Bill and Jen met Will for the first time it was love at first sight! "Jen's really good at getting Will to do those things, those things that most three-year-old's don't like to do, like, you know, brush your teeth, get ready for bed, and all that fun stuff.. and you know, just having fun with him. Because when he runs around laughing hysterically like his head is going to pop off, its because she's messing around with him, and he just… it's fun to watch, and I love being a part of it, but I'm almost just as happy, just as content to hide in the corner and let those two go at it!" Adding To The Family! The Little Couple Announce They Are Also Adopting A Girl! Meanwhile, the new parents are still working at finding the perfect balance between family life and work time, something Jen—as many working mothers know only too well, is finding a real challenge—whereas Bill, with his more flexible schedule, is adapting quickly to. Look at that smile! Bill and Jen say little Will is a super happy boy who charms everyone he meets! "For my part, you know, I run the pet shop, I have people that work of me, so for the most part my job is to make sure there's money in the bank, and orders are being placed and you know, we have product to sell and the employees are happy, so I have stress but I also have the flexibility to check out my son," Bill explains. "So I check on him during the day and I work sometimes from my home office, sometimes from the shop.. and when I have to go into the shop, it just sucks! The Little Couple's Emotional And Long Journey To Parenthood "I don't like leaving at all, I like hanging out with Will, he's like my buddy, we do a lot of stupid stuff together, you know, we play with the blocks, we play with the cars—we both have an issue with cars—you know, so we're having a lot of fun. But for Jen, because she's got more of the nine to five job, or the six to see you sometime tomorrow.. you know, I imagine it's more difficult, but she can probably speak for that better than I can!" Just like daddy! Jen tweeted a super cute pic of Will on the plane during his journey to his new home "I think it's about balance and I haven't achieved that balance yet, i'm working it out" Jen says. "Obviously, I love my job, the work that I do, but it's also very demanding and I now have a new priority, I have a son and I love him to death and I hate leaving for work in the evening and I love coming home at night, so i think it definitely makes me appreciate the time I do have with him because i've gone back to work but at the same time I find it a challenge to go to work. Watch Will Make His World Debut On Katie Couric's Show! "If i was independently wealthy would I work? Probably not, I'd stay home all the time being with Will, but we've found a wonderful nanny who is helping us out and you know, thankfully, i'm trying to do less thirty hour shifts as much as my work can allow it and it's just taking it day by day. You know, it could be three months from now I change everything and go part time, or maybe not, i think I'm just trying to play it by ear right now… there are no rule books, there are no guides, I wish someone could tell me the right thing to do because its definitely a challenge! Bill and Jen have struggled for years in their bid to become parents—now they have Will and are waiting for their little girl too! "I'm just trying to go with the flow until it doesn't feel right, and as long as he's OK and I still get as much time as possible with him, then i'm just going to go with the flow."

While the sequel to "Red," the 2010 action comedy that starred Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich and Morgan Freeman as over-the-hill assassins, doesn't open until the middle of July, Lionsgate and producers Lorenzo Di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian are already plotting a third film, with screenwriting siblings Jon and Erich Hoeber back for a third go-around (according to the Hollywood Reporter). "Thank god!" said nobody. "Red" was based on the comic book miniseries by Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner (although without much of the book's wit and explosive bursts of violence), the title standing for "retired extreme dangerous," and in its original film version, directed by Robert Schwentke, with a fair amount of visual flair. The end product of that film felt slightly watered down, with a number of concessions made to meet the seemingly impossible release date, like losing the distinctly funky music by Irish DJ and frequent Steven Soderbergh collaborator David Holmes for the...
With Lucasfilm firmly ensconced in Disney land, production has begun the next animated Star Wars TV series. Two months after The Clone Wars was forced to surrender following a five-year run on Cartoon Network, Star Wars Rebels is massing its forces for a fall 2014 attack. It will premiere as an hourlong special before the series kicks off on Disney XD outlets worldwide. Produced by Lucasfilm Animation, the action series is set during the nearly two-decade span between Episode III and IV of the Star Wars films — a time frame never chronicled onscreen. The Empire is fortifying its hold on the galaxy and hunting down the last of the Jedi Knights as a fledgling rebellion is taking shape, but plot details are in the vault. Related: ‘Star Wars’ On TV Headed In “New Direction” Writer-producer Simon Kinberg (X-Men First Class, Sherlock Holmes) is an executive producer on the new series and will write the premiere episode. Also taking EP roles are Dave Filoni, who served as supervising director of Clone Wars, and Greg Weisman (Young Justice, The Spectacular Spider-Man). Casting will be announced later.
