Welcome to Family Relationships Magazine’s weekly roundup of celebrity family news.

Jennifer Lopez tackles whooping cough

Jennifer Lopez has teamed up with March of Dimes in a US national awareness campaign about pertussis (whooping cough).

The new initiative focuses on educating new parents and their families about pertussis, a highly contagious and potentially deadly disease for infants. The campaign’s centerpiece is a series of television and radio public service announcements (PSAs) featuring Ms Lopez that are available in both English and Spanish. The PSAs, scheduled to begin airing nationally this month, encourage new and expectant parents to help protect their babies by making sure that anyone who is, or will be, in close contact with a young infant has been vaccinated against pertussis.
