10 Celebrity Parents On The Coffee Run

Thursday, September 26th, 2013

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

Some of our favorite celebrity parents are just like us — addicted to the java!

From Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck‘s frequent coffee dates at the Brentwood Country Mart, to Heidi Klum‘s regular stops at Starbucks, let’s look through 10 high-profile moms and dads who love Coffee Bean, Urth Cafe, Caffe Luxxe and other coffee houses.

Sarah Michelle Gellar

The Crazy Ones actress Sarah Michelle Gellar is often seen fueling up with caffeine. The actress and her daughter Charlotte were seen sharing a laugh as they grabbed a quick coffee after ballet class in Los Angeles in December 2012. The Ringer star toted her then 2-year-old tot as she played with a teddy bear.

“Everything is Starbucks. [Charlotte says,] ‘We need to go get coccee,’” Sarah shared.

The Buffy alum went on to say, “I don’t let her drink it!”

She added: “But Child Protective Services will get called one day because she likes to get water, but in a hot cup so it looks like she’s drinking an espresso!” she laughed. “They give her those little cups and then she runs around the store. We’ll be driving home at six o’clock at night and she’ll be like, ‘Mama need coccee?’”

Isla Fisher

Wedding Crashers star Isla Fisher and her daughters Olive, 5, and Elula, 3, were seen in Studio City, Calif. on August 14. Sporting leggings and a hoodie, The Great Gatsby actress stepped out for drinks with her girls at Coffee Bean.

Joel Madden

Rockstar papa Joel Madden stepped out with his two kids – daughter Harlow, 5, and son Sparrow, 3 – at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf in Hollywood, Calif. on June 9. Joined by a pal, the trio were not seen with mama Nicole Richie.

Richie Sambora

Bon Jovi star Richie Sambora and his 15-year-old daughter Ava stopped by Starbucks in Calabasas, Calif. on May 25. Both held trays of beverages and were all smiles for the cameras.

Pink

Grammy Award-winning singer Pink and her hubby Carey Hart had a relaxing afternoon with their then 1-year-old daughter Willow on January 11. The trio stopped in at a local coffee shop in Venice, Calif. to grab a warm beverage.

Jennifer Garner

Mom-of-three Jennifer Garner took Seraphina to breakfast at the Brentwood Country Mart on April 16. Wearing all pink, the 4-year-old walked along eating her treat while mom carried her coffee from Caffe Luxxe.

Ben Affleck

Jennifer’s not the only one in the family with a coffee addiction! Argo star Ben Affleck and his mother Chris were photographed with Seraphina at the Brentwood Country Mart in November 2012 where Ben grabbed an iced coffee to go.

Kimberly Stewart

Single mom Kimberly Stewart and daughter Delilah made their usual Starbucks stop in Beverly Hills, Calif.on June 9. Then nearly 2, Delilah was seen wearing mostly pink while mom carried her tot and her beverage.

Heidi Klum

Project Runway star Heidi Klum and her bodyguard beau Martin Kirsten took her four kids –then Leni, 8, Henry, 7, Johan, 6, and Lou, 3 – to soccer on February 2. All of the kids strapped on their cleats and practiced their skills in Brentwood, Calif. Later that same day, the group were seen at lunch and grabbing some coffees to go.

Kate Hudson

Actress Kate Hudson and fiancé, Muse frontman Matt Bellamy, were all smiles as they strolled with their then 5-month-old son Bingham in London, England in December 2011. The trio were spotted after enjoying breakfast at Violette Cafe in Belsize Park. On their way home, Matt carried some coffees to go while Kate pushed their baby in the buggy.

Celebrity Couples Share the Joys of Parenthood

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

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

From Angelina Jolie’s hope of being a good role model to Victoria Beckham’s wish for a manual on motherhood, let’s see what Hollywood parents have to say about parenthood.

Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt

Power couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are parents to six children: Maddox, 12, Pax, 9, Zahara, 7, Shiloh, 6, and 4-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne. While the high-profile couple try to maintain a private life, they’ve been known to gush about their kids every now and again.

“There are far too many things to count,” Angelina said about 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 is 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.”

And Brad recently opened up about his favorite role — fatherhood. “It’s been a family type of year, a down-home type of year,” he said. “Mama’s worked more. And quite frankly I’ve really enjoyed it.”

According to the Golden Globe-winning actor, nothing brings him greater joy than his family-of-eight.

“You know, I don’t know that we’re finished,” he said of adding to their brood. “Those late nights are so fun when one of them’s up or those mornings when they get up and make pancakes or something. That’s what it’s about.”

David & Victoria Beckham

Soccer star David Beckham and his wife of thirteen years, Posh Spice Victoria Beckham, are parents to four kids: sons Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, 10, Cruz, 8, and daughter Harper, 1.

The famous footballer said another child would be “amazing,” and he is often heard gushing about his big brood.

“She’s so beautiful,” David said about his baby girl. “There’s no more love for a daughter than there is a son, but it’s just different…I still think ‘Oh God, I can’t believe this, I’ve got a girl.’ And to see the boys with her it’s incredible. When they walk into the room, her little face lights up.”

And the singer-turned-fashion designer mama has also spoken about the joys of family life.

“Well, you know when you get a TV you get a manual? Well, there isn’t one for motherhood,” Victoria said. “I’m constantly trying to figure it out and questioning whether I’m doing it right. But I’m so proud of my kids. They are very well-mannered. We’ve always been very strict with the kids. That’s the way David and myself were brought up. But they’re free spirits as well. They laugh. They joke. They have fantastic personalities. I love hanging out with them.”

Ben Affleck & Jennifer Garner

Married for seven years, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck seem like one of the happiest couples in Hollywood with their three adorable kids: daughters Violet, 7, and Seraphina, 4, and 1-year-old son Samuel.

“It’s so important to me that they grow up with a healthy self-esteem, confidence and knowing just where to kick if they need to,” Jennifer said of raising her kids. “You want to set the best example you can for them in every way. You want them to grow up and be proud of you.”

During one of his many acceptance speeches this awards season for his mega hit Argo, Ben couldn’t help but gush about his seemingly-perfect family-of-five.

“I want to thank my three kids Violet, Sera, and Sam, I love you guys,” Ben said. “And I want to thank my wife. She’s the reason I’m standing here. I adore you, I love you so much. Thanks for sitting through this. You’re my everything.”

He added: “I want our daughters to break boundaries.”

Gwen Stefani & Gavin Rossdale

Rockstar couple Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani have been married for ten years and are parents to sons Kingston, 7, and Zuma, 4. The longtime couple have spoken about their happy family life.

“Kingston still likes the drums, but he’s into everything now,” Gavin gushed. “He’s always busy doing things. We’re just trying to give them lots of opportunities. Zuma is really into the guitar. If I’m playing he’ll come and jam with me – he’ll sit with me, it’s really fun. He moves his hands up and down. His positioning and charisma are amazing. He’s so relaxed, looks great!”

And Gwen has been open about the challenges and rewards of motherhood.

“It’s super fun being a mom, but it’s not what you think it’s going to be,” Gwen admitted. “And it’s really gradual. At first, your life is totally the same. You have this cute little thing that you get to drive around everywhere and you’re so proud and it’s amazing. And as they grow older, it really does start to change your life. Like, oh my God, they have school, they have to get through first grade, they have to learn to read.”

Celebrity Parents Shine at the Academy Awards

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

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

Call the ‘sitter, it’s Hollywood’s biggest night out!

Some of our favorite celebrity parents attended the 2013 Academy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday (February 24). From mom-of-three Reese Witherspoon, to power couple Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, to parents-to-be Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum, let’s look at the best – and worst – dressed of the evening.

Parents-to-be Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum rocked the red carpet on Hollywood’s biggest night. Jenna dressed her baby bump in a body-hugging black lace Rachel Roy gown with cap sleeves and a deep V-neck.

The mom-to-be accessorized with one-of-a-kind Irene Neuwirth earrings and Christian Louboutin’s Aida clutch in nude satin.

Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck – parents to daughters Violet, 7, and Seraphina, 4, and son Samuel, 1 on Wednesday – looked every bit the glam Hollywood couple.

Walking the red carpet in style, Jennifer looked stunning in a custom Gucci gown paired with Neil Lane jewels and a Roger Vivier clutch. And Ben didn’t look too shabby in his dapper tuxedo, accessorized with his shiny trophy!

Helen Hunt went eco-chic in an H&M couture midnight blue gown in silk satin. The actress – who is mom to 8-year-old daughter Makena – debuted H&M’s eco-friendly initiative with the environmental group Global Green.

Going equal parts glam and down-to-earth, Helen paired the strapless gown with $700,000 worth of jewels by Martin Katz which were sewn right into the dress.

The Most High-Profile Celebrity Babies of 2012

Friday, December 21st, 2012

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

There’s always reason to celebrate a baby’s birth, but when our favorite celebrities add to their families, we can get downright giddy!

1. Blue Ivy Carter

R&B royalty Jay-Z and Beyoncé welcomed daughter Blue Ivy on January 7, 2012. The superstar couple released a touching statement to announce the birth of their first child.

“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.”

2. India Rose Hemsworth

The Avengers star Chris Hemsworth welcomed first child, daughter India Rose, with his wife Elsa Pataky on May 11, 2012. The Snow White and the Huntsman actor said fatherhood has been smooth sailing so far.

“She’s been great,” Chris gushed of his newborn daughter. “She sleeps very well. Not out of any skill on my behalf, but my wife has been amazing.” The Aussie actor adds that fatherhood has already shifted his perspective: “Just her being here. It’s certainly taken all my focus and attention away from work — or what have you — but that’s the main thing on my brain right now. It’s wonderful.”

3. Samuel Garner Affleck

Already parents to daughters Violet, 7, and Seraphina, nearly 4, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck finally welcomed a son, Samuel Garner, on February, 27, 2012. The proud mom-of-three opened up about their newest family member.

“He is so chill… He reaches when he sees me and he laughs a lot,” Jennifer said. “He thinks I’m super funny. What more do you want?”

4. Olive Barrymore Kopelman

E.T. star Drew Barrymore and husband Will Kopelman welcomed their first child, daughter Olive, on September 26, 2012. “We are proud to announce the birth of our daughter,” the newlyweds announced.

“I can’t wait until I have my children,” Drew said just weeks before welcoming baby Olive. “I love the idea that they don’t have to do something that they have no interest in, that they can do something completely opposite if they want to. I will be so surprised if they don’t want to do something involving food or wine or art, but I’ll be OK with it. I just want to build fun, great things for my family.”

5. Maxwell Drew Johnson

Singer-turned-entrepreneur Jessica Simpson and fiancé Eric Johnson welcomed their first child, daughter Maxwell Drew, on May 1, 2012. And by all accounts, it seems the Fashion Star mentor has taken to motherhood like a duck to water.

“I am so in love with baby Maxwell,” the new mom gushed. “I want to cry every time I look at her. Motherhood is by far the best thing I’ve ever experienced.”

Happy In Hollywood: 10 Strong Celebrity Marriages

Tuesday, December 4th, 2012

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

After nine years of marriage to Michael Stone, we were sorry to hear Mayim Bailiks divorce announcement last week.

But they’re not the only ones. It seems there’s a new split every other week among Hollywood’s couples. But there’s a few duos that keep the flame burning in Tinseltown. From David and Victoria Beckham’s 13-year union, to Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick’s two decade-plus marriage, let’s take a look at 10 Hollywood couples with strong marriages.

1. David and Victoria Beckham

David and Victoria Beckham are practically British royalty. Dubbed ‘Posh and Becks’ by the media, the longtime couple have been married for 13 years.

Seemingly blissful since their July 1999 wedding, the British power couple have four children together: sons Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, 10, and Cruz, 7, and 1-year-old daughter Harper.

“Our house is a really happy house,” Victoria said. “There are kids running around and laughing and joking, I smile so much more than people would think. There’s nothing better than being in LA with my kids, cooking dinner with my husband and having a romantic night in…I’m growing older with the most amazing man I’ve ever met – with my soul mate. Life’s great.”

2. Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck

Married for 7 years, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck seem like one of the happiest couples in Hollywood with their three children: daughters Violet, nearly 7, and Seraphina, nearly 4, and 9-month-old son Samuel.

The Garflecks, who wed in June 2005, seem like the perfect match.

“Jennifer played such a profound role in making me a better person,” Ben said. “We don’t have a perfect marriage, but she inspired me; and finding myself in that marriage and having a child dovetailed with getting to be a little more mature.” He added of his wife, “She truly is kind. She means no one any harm. She doesn’t have ill will for any person. She’s not competitive with other people. She’s not spiteful. It’s one of those things where it becomes almost aggravating at times. Every time I go, ‘F— him!’ I see in her face that she just thinks that’s petty and small.”

3. Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale

Rockstar couple Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale have been married for 10 years and appear to have the perfect family-of-four with their two sons, Kingston, 6, and Zuma, 4.

After celebrating their 2002 wedding with three ceremonies, the No Doubt frontwoman recently said marriage can be hard, but a dream come true.

“My biggest accomplishment is my marriage so far,” Gwen said. “Because it’s hard, everyone knows it’s hard. [Marriage] is something that I always wanted to do successfully. It was a dream of mine. I like the official-ness and the family-ness of it all, having the same name and making decisions together.”

She went on to say they are closer than ever after a decade together.

“[Our relationship] is better than it’s ever been. Like, we’re learning about each other all the time. He’s an amazing dad, he works so hard – I can hear him writing songs through the wall, and it is at a much quicker pace than me! He balances me out. And he – he never stops liking me, which is awesome! It makes me feel happy, that someone likes me as much as he does.”

A Look At Hollywood’s Karate Kids

Friday, September 21st, 2012

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

Long before tween star Jaden Smith made martial arts popular in the remake of Karate Kid, children everywhere have been participating in karate.

And Tinseltown’s tots are no exception. From Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck’s daughter Violet, to Heidi Klum and Seal’s kids, to Britney Spears’ boys, let’s take a look at Hollywood’s karate kids.

We just spotted mom-of-three Jennifer Garner picking up her 6-year-old daughter Violet from karate class. The eldest Affleck kiddo looked so cute in her uniform.

We’ve seen Britney Spears taking her sweet sons Sean Preston and Jayden James to and from karate class.

Jessica Alba’s elder daughter Honor was spotted in her karate outfit earlier this year. She looked so proud as she walked with the nanny after class.

We often see Mark Wahlberg picking up his son Michael from karate class in sunny California. What a cute father-son pair!

My Name Is Earl star Jaime Pressly was spotted with her adorable son Dezi after karate class last summer. We wonder if he’s kept up with martial arts training?

Michael Jackson’s sons Prince and Blanket have been spotted leaving their karate lessons. Their sister Paris has also been photographed in her white uniform.

Although it’s been years, we used to see Ryan Phillippe regularly taking his son Deacon, now 8, to and from karate class.

Rockstar parents Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale were seen taking their elder son Kingston to karate class last summer. Not sure if we’ve seen him in his karate uniform since?

Heidi Klum seems to always be dropping off and picking up all four of her kids – sons Henry and Johan and daughters Leni and Lou – at karate class. We even saw her oldest son receiving an award for his martial arts skills.

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.
