Samantha Harris: My Daughters Have “Completely Different Personalities”

Sunday, May 6th, 2012

Samantha HarrisThis post was written by our friends at Celebrity Baby Scoop.

TV host Samantha Harris loves the “profound” experience of motherhood! The Dancing with the Stars alum took part in Saturday’s March for Babies walk in Los Angeles. A “longtime supporter” of March of Dimes, Samantha says the money raised will “help all moms, including at-risk women, have healthy full-term pregnancies.”

Samantha opens up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about being a “strong advocate for anti-hunger issues” and “empower[ing] women to have healthy, full-term pregnancies.” The mom-of-two also talks about her “completely different” daughters Josselyn, 4, and 15-month-old Hilary, the joys of motherhood, and the possibility of baby No. 3: “Never say never!”

CBS: Tell us about partnering with March of Dimes and their March for Babies walk in LA.

SH: “I’m a longtime supporter of the March of Dimes. Their mission is to empower women to have healthy, full-term pregnancies. They’ve been around for years, and the work they do for women is unprecedented. The March of Dimes raises money to help all moms, including at-risk women, have healthy full-term pregnancies.

The March of Dimes has raised millions of dollars during their March for Babies walks across the country. I’m honored to be part of the Los Angeles walk at Exposition Park this weekend. It’s an amazing event and I’m so excited to host the morning’s opening ceremonies.

There are so many stories of poverty, malnutrition and inadequate healthcare all over the word. And really, all those things also exist right here in our backyards. Many women right here in the USA are giving birth to premature babies. The March of Dimes raises millions of dollars through the March for Babies walks across the U.S. to benefit all babies.

And not to mention, they’re an amazing online resource for women everywhere! There is a ton of information for expectant moms on their site [MarchOfDimes.com].”

CBS: How are Josselyn and Hilary doing? What are they into?

SH: “They are great! Hilary is now 15-months and Josselyn is 4-years-old. They’re both so bright and completely different personalities! Hilary goes head-first into everything – she has no fear! She will jump off everything and just go full-force ahead.

Josselyn is the cautious one and always considers safety first. It’s funny, I thought she was like that because I was an over-protective first-time mom. But then when Hilary came along and showed her daredevil personality at such a young age, I realized it’s just a part of who they both are. I’m constantly amazed as I watch them grow into their own.”

CBS: What are some of your favorite mommy memories with your girls?

SH: “There are so many, so I’ve actually decided to start writing down their special moments into a journal. I plan to give it to them when they’re older. Whether it’s something funny they just said, or a milestone, or a special day we’ve just had, I write it down and post it in their book. I’ve realized I’m not used to handwriting anymore, so I might resort to writing something quickly on my phone or on the computer and printing it off.

I just remember how special it felt to look back at the baby albums my mom made for me, and I want my girls to have that. Of course, my older sister has millions of photos of her every move and there’s barely any pictures of me, so I want to make sure Hilary has something to look back onto [laughs]!”

CBS: What is your favorite part of motherhood?

SH: “I love how my girls use the word ‘love.’ Both of them tell me they love me and it melts my heart. ‘I love you’ was Hilary’s first 3-sentence blurb. I will tell her ‘I love you’ and she replies now with ‘I yuv yu.’ And for Josselyn, ‘love’ was the second word she learned how to spell. The first was her name. Just hearing that word and feeling the unconditional love between us is beyond amazing.”

Hilary Duff On “Amazing” Son, Breastfeeding, Joys Of Motherhood

Sunday, April 29th, 2012

Hilary Duff and FamilyThis post was written by our friends at Celebrity Baby Scoop.

New mom Hilary Duff is loving motherhood and her “well behaved” bundle of joy! The Lizzie McGuire alum welcomed first child, son Luca Cruz, on March 20 with hockey star husband Mike Comrie. The actress, author, entrepreneur and recording artist, 24, has partnered with JOHNSON’S® Baby and Save the Children “to help other moms and babies throughout the world.”

Hilary opens up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about her “amazing” newborn son who “sleeps like a pro,” her increased “sense of confidence as a mom compared to Day 1,” and her breastfeeding and Pilates routines.

CBS: Tell us about partnering with JOHNSON’S® Baby and Save the Children for the launch of a new charitable platform, JOHNSON’S® Baby CARES.

HD: “Now that I’m a mom, I’ve been touched and inspired to help other moms and babies throughout the world. This is why I teamed up with the JOHNSON’S® Baby CARES campaign in support of Save the Children, which helps to provide funding and resources to ensure families have basic essentials to care for their babies in times of crisis.

So many children live in areas that are at risk for natural disasters. Each year, Save the Children responds to at least 30 crises globally – from the smaller, local events that we may not hear about on the news, to the larger, more extreme ones – all of which have a tremendous impact on babies and children, who are always the most vulnerable in these times.”

CBS: How can we get involved?

HD: “You can support this campaign by visiting the JOHNSON’S® Baby CARES tab on JOHNSON’S Facebook page to learn more about the partnership with Save the Children.”

CBS: Congratulations on the birth of Luca Cruz! How is he doing? What kind of baby is he so far?

HD: “Amazing! He is very well behaved – he eats and sleeps like a pro!”

CBS: How have you adjusted to motherhood? What are some of the the biggest challenges and greatest joys so far?

HD: “Getting Luca on a schedule that works for both of us – it’s tough at first but he is getting better every day. The joy I get comes from seeing him grow every day and get stronger. Also, the sense of confidence I have as a mom compared to Day 1.”

CBS: Are you breastfeeding Luca? If so, how’s that going?

HD: “Yes, it’s like a lot of things you take on in life. You have to experience it to understand. No one can do it for you.”

CBS: We’ve already spotted you out and about at the gym. Tell us about your postpartum workout routine.

HD: “I started doing Pilates and spin classes just like I did before Luca. Back to the routine!”

CBS: Are you hoping Luca will follow in your showbiz shoes, or maybe hit the skates like his dad?

HD: “There is no pressure from either of us. He will choose his own path and we will support what he is passionate about.”

CBS: How did you come up with the name Luca Cruz?

HD: “Mike and I were just bouncing names off each other, and Luca just stuck. We both knew when we heard it, it was unique but not crazy.”

CBS: What’s up next for you? A maternity leave, or will you be returning to work soon?

HD: “I am just enjoying being a mom. There is no pressure on me to get back to doing anything in particular, but I love to stay active and work as much as possible so it won’t be long. Time will tell…”

Top 10 Favorite Celebrity Moms

Thursday, April 19th, 2012

Celebrity MomsThis post was written by our friends at Celebrity Baby Scoop.

From Sarah Michelle Gellar‘s frequent Starbucks trips with Charlotte, Jennifer Garner’s park playdates with the Violet and Seraphina, to Alyson Hannigan’s Santa Monica strolls with Satyana, we love seeing our favorite celebrity moms out and about with their gorgeous kids!

 Sarah Michelle Gellar:

We can’t get enough of Buffy alum Sarah Michelle Gellar! The 35-year-old actress and husband Freddie Prinze, Jr. are parents to 2-year-old daughter Charlotte. “Charlotte is my best friend, and any free time I have, I want to spend with her,” the proud mom gushed. “But while it’s easy to forget yourself, I can’t define myself as only Charlotte’s mother—one day, she’s going to be an adult, and then where am I?”

And it sounds like SMG definitely deserves our top honor – she’s already taught baby Charlie to love her greens! “We’ve already taught her to love healthy food,” the mom-of-one shared. “We took her to sushi on Saturday night, and everybody couldn’t believe what she inhaled. I think it’s important at a young age to enjoy different tastes. And we make this green juice for her. It’s basically everything but the kitchen sink. We go to the farmers’ market and buy everything and just put it in the juicer: kale, Swiss chard, carrots, celery. You name it. And now we’ve all started drinking it, and we’ve all been healthier.”

Jennifer Garner:

Alias alum Jennifer Garner, 39, and husband Ben Affleck welcomed their third child, son Samuel Garner, on February 27. The high profile couple are also parents to daughters Violet, 6, and Seraphina, 3.

The hands-on mama recently gushed about her adorable and hilarious girls. “You know how once you have kids you never ever pee by yourself again? At least one of them is always in there with you at all times,” Jen shared. “So the other day… [Violet] is in there with me and all of the sudden she went, Oh Mom, we have to have a talk…She said, ‘Mom, your bottom has gotten so big that your panties don’t even begin to cover it.’ I said, ‘It’s called a thong, you wear it when you’re a grown up.’ She was like, ‘Uh, that is so gross!”

Angelina Jolie:

Academy Award-winner Angelina Jolie, 36, and her longtime love, Brad Pitt, are parents to six kids: Maddox, 10, Pax, 8, Zahara, 7, Shiloh, 5, and 3-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne. “There are far too many things to count,” Angie said on the joys of motherhood. “But everything that matters in life has to do with being a parent.”

While she’s had a colorful past, the actress said she’s honored to be considered a role model. “I was such a punk for so long, you can’t imagine you’d be anybody’s role model,” she said. “I’m very grateful that I’ve had the opportunity to do some things that have allowed me to be a role model. I hope I’m [a role model] for my children, and especially for my daughters.”

Alyson Hannigan:

How I Met Your Mother star Alyson Hannigan, 37, and husband Alexis Denisof are expecting their second child this summer. The couple, who costarred in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, are already parents to 3-year-old daughter Satyana. “There’s so many in a day,” Alyson told Celebrity Baby Scoop of cherished moments with her daughter. “It’s hard to choose any of them, but they’re all so special. I love her perspective on life and I love getting to be a part of her world. She’s just such a sweet, sweet person and I love the things that come out of her mouth. She’s just so full of personality and so lovely. [Motherhood is] just the greatest thing ever!”

Jessica Alba:

Fantastic Four star Jessica Alba, 30, and husband Cash Warren welcomed their second daughter, Haven, in August. The couple are also parents to 3-year-old daughter Honor.

Jessica said motherhood “changed everything” and helped her gain perspective. “I felt completely different [after becoming a mom],” Jess said. “I really came into myself as a person. Before, I was always working for my identity. And then you take the focus off of yourself. I was probably-definitely-a bit of a narcissist. When you are young and an actor and driven, it’s a bizarre state of mind to be in at times. I was so focused on things that didn’t matter at the end of the day. Now I have what I do for a living in perspective. Working was everything to me, my entire identity, and once I got to step away from it, everything changed.”

10 Celebrities Who Give Parenting Advice

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

Celeb Advice

This post was written by our friends at Celebrity Baby Scoop.

Who do you turn to for parenting advice? Your own mother, your friends or other family members?

Or maybe you look to celebrity parents for their thoughts on parentingAngelina Jolie advises parents to let their children “express themselves,” Tom Cruise says he doesn’t like to say “no” to his little girl, while Gisele Bündchen feels all new moms should be legislated to breastfeed. Take a look through our list of 10 celebrities and their top parenting advice.

Angelina Jolie:

Academy Award-winning actress Angelina Jolie and her longtime love Brad Pitt are parents to six kids: Maddox, 10, Pax, 8, Zahara, 7, Shiloh, 5, and 3-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne. And although they have such a big brood, their 5-year-old sure knows how to make headlines with her tomboy image!

Angle has said that Shiloh is “fascinating,” and elaborated on the fact that her daughter dresses “like a little dude…I would never be the kind of parent to force somebody to be something they are not,” Angelina said. “I think that is just bad parenting… Children should be allowed to express themselves in whatever way they wish without anybody judging them because it is an important part of their growth.”

Katie Holmes:

Dawson’s Creek alum Katie Holmes and husband, Mission Impossible star Tom Cruise, have a 5-year-old fashionista on their hands! While everyone around her is bundled up in warm winter sweaters or coats, their daughter Suri is often seen with bare arms and legs.

Katie came clean about Suri’s lack of weather-appropriate attire, admitting it can be “embarrassing.”

“Recently, Suri and I were taking a walk and a fight got started because it was cold outside and she didn’t want to wear her coat,” Katie said. “My philosophy is, well, fine, because after a block of walking you’re going to ask me for your coat. So the pictures of her [without a coat in cold weather] are sort of embarrassing.”

Suri’s Top Gun papa has also weighed in on Suri’s much-talked-about fashion choices — such as her heels and lipstick. “Listen, I believe that she (should wear) whatever she wants to wear,” Tom said. “She dresses herself. I want to encourage her creativity and her own self-expression. I think that’s important for the child’s own identity.”

The doting daddy went on to say that Suri is “so sweet” that it’s hard to say “no” to her.

Gisele Bündchen:

Model mom Gisele Bündchen has been known to speak her mind! Seven months after welcoming her son Benjamin with husband Tom Brady, the Brazilian beauty declared that breastfeeding should be made mandatory by law. “Some people here (in the US) think they don’t have to breastfeed, and I think ‘Are you going to give chemical food to your child when they are so little?’ I think there should be a worldwide law, in my opinion, that mothers should breastfeed their babies for six months,” Gisele said.

After a public uproar, the new mom clarified her thoughts about breastfeeding and the impact caused by her comment. “My intention in making a comment about the importance of breastfeeding has nothing to do with the law,” Gisele wrote on her blog. “It comes from my passion and beliefs about children. Becoming a new mom has brought a lot of questions, I feel like I am in a constant search for answers on what might be the best for my child. It’s unfortunate that in an interview sometimes things can seem so black and white. I am sure if I would just be sitting talking about my experiences with other mothers, we would just be sharing opinions. I understand that everyone has their own experience and opinions and I am not here to judge. I believe that bringing a life into this world is the single most important thing a person can undertake and it can also be the most challenging. I think as mothers we are all just trying our best.”

Jennifer Garner:

Jennifer Garner became a mother-of-three earlier this week when she welcomed her third child, son Samuel, with husband Ben Affleck. She is one of our favorite celebrity moms year after year, and when she talks about role modeling for her daughters Violet, 6, and Seraphina, 3, it’s easy to see why she gets the popular vote.

“I try really hard to put my phone down [ever since] my daughter pretended to take something out of one of her little purses and was like, ‘I’ve got an email – hang on one second,’” Jen said.

The Alias alum went on to encourage mother’s to stop judging one another, and start supporting each other. “I will tell you what I can’t abide – and I think the Internet has really created a space for it – women criticizing other women and mothers criticizing other mothers,” Jen shared. “It just makes me crazy, whether it’s between staying at home, going to work, how long you breastfeed, if you use formula. I feel like we should just assume everyone is doing the best they can. Women should take care of each other, not tear each other down. I would just like to see a mother who really believes that she has done it all so right, you know what I mean?”

Michael J. Fox:

While Michael J. Fox was once best known for his Back to the Future films, he is now widely known as an advocate for Parkinson’s Disease, a condition he was diagnosed with in 1991. The father-of-four often speaks out on the importance of family. “Always be available to your kids,”Michael advised. “Because if you say, ‘Give me five minutes, give me ten minutes,’ it’ll be 15, it’ll be 20. And then when you get there, the shine will have worn off whatever it is they wanted to share with you. I’ve never gotten up to see something one of my kids wanted to show me and not been rewarded.”

10 Favorite New Babies in Hollywood

Friday, April 6th, 2012

Favorite Celeb BabiesThis post was written by our friends at Celebrity Baby Scoop.

It’s a Hollywood’s baby boom!

From R&B royalty Jay-Z and Beyoncé‘s firstborn child Blue Ivy, and David and Victoria Beckham’s first daughter Harper Seven, to Pink and Carey Hart’s sweet girl Willow Sage, there have been some adorable new arrivals into Tinseltown!

Take a look through our list of 10 beautiful new babies in Hollywood.

Babies of 2012…

Blue Ivy Carter:

R&B royalty Jay-Z and Beyoncé welcomed one of the most highly-anticipated babies in Hollywood, daughter Blue Ivy, on January 7, 2012. The superstar couple released a touching statement to announce the birth of their first child’s birth. “Hello Hello Baby Blue!” they stated. “We are happy to announce the arrival of our beautiful daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, born on Saturday, January 7, 2012. Her birth was emotional and extremely peaceful, we are in heaven. She was delivered naturally at a healthy 7 lbs and it was the best experience of both of our lives. We are thankful to everyone for all your prayers, well wishes, love and support.”

 Samuel Garner Affleck:

We can’t wait to see sweet baby Sam!

After having two daughters – Violet, 6, and Seraphina, 3 – high-profile couple Ben Affleck andJennifer Garner finally welcomed a boy! Their third child, son Samuel Garner, was born on February 27, 2012. “We are happy to announce on February 27, Jennifer gave birth to a healthy baby boy, Samuel Garner Affleck,” Ben wrote on his Facebook page.”

Babies of 2011…

Ever Imre Morissette-Treadway:

Canadian crooner Alanis Morissette and husband Mario “Souleye” welcomed their first child, son Ever, on Christmas Day, 2010. Although she seems a natural, the of You Oughta Knowsinger admits, “I remain baffled at how little I was prepared for what was to come.” “It was all I could do not to cry out for the kind of mothering that I was intending to offer my lil’ one,” Alanis reflected as a new mom. “Someone who could swoop in and just DO THIS FOR ME while they pet my trembling head, while I whimpered in the corner. I remember crying out on a walk up the street, startling a dog. This dog was not easily startled. But no, this motherhood business was my call to rise to. And mine alone,” the ‘Thank You’ singer writes. “And there was no doula alive that could have reached in and taught me what I have learned through experience. There was no midwife who could show me how to grow up, warp-speed from complicated contemplative maiden to accountable matriarch. These things required months of growth and calibrating! And here I naively thought that I would arrive as a MOM at the same time as my lil’ boy arrived as a SON. The latter waaay preceded the former.”

 Faith Margaret Kidman Urban:

At the age of 40, Nicole Kidman gave birth to her first biological child, daughter Sunday Rose, in July 2008 with her country singing superstar hubby Keith Urban. The power couple didn’t stop there — on December 28, 2010 they welcomed another daughter, Faith Margaret, who was delivered via gestational carrier. “Having given birth and then being there to see my child born in that way, I felt so much love for our surrogate, gestational carrier,” Nicole said. She’s also opened up about her “roller-coaster ride with fertility.”

 Flynn Christopher Blanchard Copeland Bloom:

On January 6, 2011, Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr welcomed their first child, son Flynn. Baby Flynn has topped the charts as a favorite new tot in Tinseltown!

“He’s a great kid. I love it.” Orlando said of his sweet son. “He’s wonderful [and] laughs more than he cries – we’re very lucky.”

[Flynn is] “the best thing I’ve ever done!,” Miranda gushed. “Every day it just gets better,” she added.

10 Single Moms in Hollywood

Friday, March 23rd, 2012

Single MomsThis post was written by our friends at Celebrity Baby Scoop.

More and more celebrity moms are becoming single parents due to divorce, the untimely passing of their partner, or adoption.

Academy Award-winning actress Charlize Theron is the latest celebrity to announce an adoption and join in the ranks of single motherhood. Let’s take a look at the stories of 10 single moms in Hollywood such as Sheryl Crow, Michelle Williams and Sandra Bullock.

Charlize Theron:

Oscar-winner Charlize Theron is that latest celebrity to adopt a baby. The actress just announced she is the proud mom of a 4-month-old boy named Jackson. “It’s been amazing, the amount of emails and congratulations,” Charlize said. “Everyone’s just been so lovely — it’s been really nice.”

Sandra Bullock:

There were big changes for Sandra Bullock in 2010! She won an Oscar, went through a divorce, and welcomed her son Louis. Proud to adopt a child from the U.S., Sandra has talked about the first time she met her son. “The first time I met Louis, it was like the whole outside world got quiet,” she said. “It was like he had always been a part of our lives. All I said when I met him was, ‘Oh, there you are.’ He’s just perfect, I can’t even describe him any other way.”

Halle Berry:

Academy Award-winning actress Halle Berry has had a rocky love life! Since her 2010 split from Gabriel Aubrey, a nasty custody battle has ensued over their 4-year-old daughter Nahla. Although things are ugly now, the pair were amicable right after first splitting. “While it was not a love connection for us, he was absolutely the right person to have this child with because she is going to have an amazing father,” Halle said of Gabriel. “And that was really important to me. We’ll make sure we always do what is right for her and put her first. And she will see as she grows that we have a lot of love for each other.”

Denise Richards:

Actress Denise Richards was once wed to Hollywood bad boy Charlie Sheen. Since their divorce, the pair have worked hard at peacefully co-parenting their daughters Sam, 8, and Lola, 6. The 41-year-old actress went on to adopt daughter Eloise in June 2011. “I’ve always wanted more children and [I] had to make a decision: Do I wait to find the right partner or do it on my own?,” Denise said. “So I just did it on my own.”

How does Denise juggle three kids and her busy career? “You have to take the pressure off yourself. If you try to make everything perfectly balanced, that can create guilt,” Denise said. “When I’m working, things give at home and when I’m at home, things give at work.”

Minnie Driver:

Academy Award-nominated actress Minnie Driver recently identified her 3-year-old son Henry’s father, Scotland-born producer Timothy Jonathan Lea, 52, co-producer of The Riches as well as the hit shows CSI New York and Law and Order. “Is he a good dad? Sort of,” Minnie admitted. “He’s figuring it out… I mean, he hasn’t been that involved, his choice. But he is now.”

The Good Will Hunting star admits she’d like more kids, but only if she has a partner. “Henry’s dad and I probably wouldn’t have any more together, but I would love to have more,” she said. “But I couldn’t do another one without a partner; I couldn’t do two as a single mum, I really couldn’t. It would be too much.”
