College Basketball Star Took 7-Year-Old Boy With Leukemia To The Kentucky Derby

Filed under: BasketballCute Kidz

Kelly Melton is 7-years-old, and he's battling leukemia. A lot of his time is spent in the University of Kentucky Children's Hospital — which isn't too far from where Nerlens Noel plays college basketball!

It turns out, Nerlens is actually pretty good… as he's poised to go from college player to number one pick in this June's NBA draft!

He also has time for Kelly, and adorably invited him to go along to the famous Kentucky Derby, where they ran the red carpet like pros!

The best moment, though, was captured for Twitter (above)! That's Nerlens lifting Kelly over rising rain water so he doesn't get all wet!

We bet Kelly had the best day ever! What an amazing guy Nerlens is!

So fab!

Lauren Conrad's Head Is In Full Bloom At The Kentucky Derby

Lauren Conrad wears a giant flower hat to the Kentucky Derby

England may have its wacky royal wedding fascinators, but we have the Kentucky Derby, and our hats are BIGGER!

And, obvs, bigger is always better! So, take that, Brits!

Lauren Conrad took that expression very much to heart at the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs on Saturday, wearing a ginormous floral hat on her pretty little head.

From the head down, she was classy and elegant in a dotted Paper Crown dress paired with nude LC Lauren Conrad pumps.

We're digging the soft, monochromatic color scheme, Lauren's ombre waves, and her glowing tan.

Well done, LC!

Anna Nicole Smith's Daughter Is Growing Up So Fast!

She's gorgeous!!!!

Dannielynn Birkhead, the young daughter of the late Anna Nicole Smith, made her annual debut with father Larry Birkhead at the 138th Kentucky Derby on Saturday.

And doesn't she look lovely in her spring yellow dress and matching headband! So cute!

Being a Kentucky native himself, Larry has had a history with the Derby. He actually met Anna Nicole at a Derby after-party back in 2004.

And now, it's become somewhat of an annual tradition for him to bring their beautiful blonde daughter to the event.

Dannielynn is now 5 years old and is growing up to be an absolutely breathtaking young lady. Naturally, she's a spitting image of her beautiful mom and handsome dad, who has chosen to keep her out of the spotlight since he gained custody of her.

It seems like he's done a wonderful job raising Dannielynn. Not only does she look healthy and happy, but she seems to love him more than ever.

This makes us feel so warm and fuzzy!

Keep doing what you're doing, Larry.
