Dreams ain’t just for dreamers. Especially the ones that don’t come true. Good to stand in one of the most famous stadium tunnels in the world that leads to gridiron dreams. I dreamed of walkin’ down this tunnel and playing in the NFL. After what felt like a lifetime of commitment and hard work, I failed to make it and that dream never came true. Stood in this tunnel and had a good sobering laugh with myself… I thought hell, had I been a little bit better of a player… made 5 more tackles and a sack per game and my life would’ve been drastically different. Just wasn’t meant to be and more importantly, I just wasn’t playing the right game. Raising a grateful glass of tequila to dreams that don’t come true. 🥃

His Instagram also serves as a reminder that the movie star is a family man. He often posts photos of his partner and daughters.

Happy Mother’s Day to my main squeeze @laurenhashianofficial, holding my little main squeeze, Jasmine Lia, who’s holding my tiniest main squeeze, Tiana Gia – both our daughter’s middle names are in honor of their great grandmothers, Lia and Giavanna. I’m in constant respect and grateful awe of all the things this incredible mama accomplishes on a daily basis. Here’s a fun small recap: Having a two and half year old and a newborn attached and clinging to her 24/7. Managing the wonderfully fun, Terrible 2’s with Jazzy. The “Hi, I need to eat every 3hrs and preferably from your boob” (just like daddy;) with Baby Tia. Managing multiple family properties. Managing an ever growing staff of family employees across the country. Picking up the ENTIRE FAMILY, STAFF AND DOG and moving to multiple locations AROUND THE WORLD, throughout the year because of my filming and production schedule. All while continuing to build an amazing career as a music and song writer/producer. As an artist and businessman myself, I recognize how incredibly hard this part is of her job is. She’s a brilliant visionary storyteller and lyrically gifted – all qualities that are hard to tap into when you’re managing this nonstop life of ours. But she does it like a brilliant bad ass. And here’s the best part and the thing I’m most proud of… Lauren does it all with a big genuine smile and is truly, the kindest and sweetest soul you’ll ever meet. People tell me all time after they spend time with her, “Lauren’s the nicest person I have ever met”. I always say, “Yes she is and being nice runs in our family… and so does kicking ass, so don’t ever get on her bad side” Lol. And finally – of all the human beings on this earth she could have as her partner – she chose me. One big, brown, bald, tattooed, very lucky SOB. Happy Mama’s Day Lauren. Take a bow and Queen it up – you’re an amazing mama and amazing mama’s make this world go around. #yvpagm x

Photo by @kurebayashiii Haruka Kurebayashi (@kurebayashiii) travels the world as a kawaii fashion model, a style that’s known for colorful, playful clothing. But in her eyes, kawaii — which translates as “cute” in English — isn’t just about style. “It is about accepting diversity,” says Haruka, who lives in Tokyo, the birthplace of kawaii. “I’ve learned from kawaii culture that feeling bad about myself or disliking someone who’s different than me is silly. People who like kawaii culture are always praising each other. And not only can you enjoy wearing the clothes, but hopefully you can cheer up other people who see you.” 🍭 Haruka shows us around her colorful kawaii world today on our story and on our IGTV channel. To watch IGTV, update your app now, then look for the new icon in the top right corner of feed.
