Call the ‘sitter — it’s date night for mom and dad!

And there were some stunning mamas on the red carpet! From new moms Adele and Claire Danes, to an expectant Kristen Bell, to preschooler moms Jennifer Lopez and Halle Berry, it was a star-studded night to remember. Take a look through CelebrityBabyScoop’s list of celebrity parents at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards. Who was the best – and worst – dressed?

Mom-of-one Halle Berry pulled an “Angelina Jolie” and showed some serious leg at Sunday night’s event. And Jennifer Lopez stunned in a Zuhair Murad long-sleeve silk gown featuring an ivory embroidered lace overlay with beading detail, Christian Louboutin heels, a Jimmy Choo bag, and Le Vian jewels.

Expectant mama Kristen Bell looked lovely in a Jenny Packham dress alongside her dapper fiancé Dax Shepard.

One of the night’s big winners, new mom Claire Danes, was accompanied by her husband Hugh Dancy and wore a custom-made Atelier Versace gown paired with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.

New mom Adele radiated on the red carpet in a Burberry dress, Miu Miu heels, and jewelry by Cartier and Van Cleef and Arpels. And not to mention her glowing trophy for “Best Song.”

And Jessica Alba hit the red carpet in a melon silk Oscar de la Renta gown paired with Harry Winston jewelry and a Roger Vivier clutch. The mom-of-two presented the award for Best Actor in a Miniseries or Television Film to Kevin Costner for his role in Hatfields & McCoys.

6 Celebrity Kids Make Their Modeling Debut

Friday, January 11th, 2013

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

From the Beckhams to the Gerbers, there’s no denying good genes!

So it’s no surprise that Cindy Crawford’s daughter Kaia has taken up modeling at the age of 10. And we weren’t shocked to see the 10-year-old son of David and Victoria Beckham posing for the newest Burberry campaign.

Take a look at six celebrity kids who have made their modeling debut.

1. Kaia Gerber

At the age of 10, Kaia Gerber, the stunning daughter of supermodel Cindy Crawford and husband Rande Gerber, made her modeling debut for Young Versace. But according to her model mom, the now-11-year-old won’t be making a career of it any time soon.

“At this point, she’s too young to pursue a career,” Cindy said. “There aren’t even a handful of jobs for a 10-year-old girl. But if she’s 17 and wants to try it…of course, what can I say? She’s really into singing and acting. She kind of jokingly said—I’m not even sure if it was jokingly—‘I might model first because you don’t have to know how to do anything, but then I want to be a baby nurse.’”

2. Max and Emme Muñiz

At the tender age of two, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony‘s twins (now 4 1/2) made their modeling debut as the faces of Gucci’s children’s line in October 2010.

Alongside their famous mama, the twins looked too cute for words in their designer duds. “It’s the first time I have worked with my kids in that way,” J.Lo said, adding that the twins “had fun” posing.

In honor of the collection, Gucci donated $1 million to UNICEF’s Schools for Africa initiative and $50,000 to Jennifer’s charity, the Maribel Initiative.

“It’s exactly why I’m excited to be a part of this,” said the mom-of-two. “Now there are two Gucci spokesbabies for a beautiful cause!”

3. Ava Sambora

Bon Jovi rocker Richie Sambora and actress Heather Locklear are proud parents to 15-year-old daughter Ava. In March 2010, when Ava was just 12, she made her modeling debut at LA Fashion Week.

The blonde beauty premiered her famous father’s women’s fashion line White Trash Beautiful. Looking beyond her years, Ava was cheered on by her beaming parents as she strutted her way down the catwalk.

“My daughter’s beautiful, she’s gregarious, she’s funny, she’s smart,” Richie gushed. “I’m beyond proud. The only modeling she has really done has been at my shows. That is where we are right now – her priorities are schoolwork and also I believe in maintaining the innocence of children. Before that when she is 18 or 19 she is going to do what she wants to do and I’m going to support her and help her through it.”

Best of 2012: Favorite Maternity Trends

Monday, December 31st, 2012

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

There’s no question Hollywood had a baby boom in 2012. And in celebration, we’re taking a look at the best maternity fashion trends of this last year.

1. Sarah Michelle Gellar

Our readers love Sarah Michelle Gellar! Not only is she one of our favorite celebrity moms year-after-year, we can’t get enough of her fabulous fashions. And when she is dressing a baby bump, we all watch with admiration.

Before welcoming her son Rocky in September, SMG led the way in maternity trends this year. From going casual in skinny jeans and tees, to leggy floral prints and layers, we couldn’t get enough of Buffy’s maternity trends.

2. Reese Witherspoon

New mom-of-three Reese Witherspoon was simply radiant with breezy summer dresses throughout her third pregnancy.

Before welcoming son Tennessee in September, Reese delighted us with her stylish maternity duds. From polka dots, to stripes, to solid colors, the Oscar-winner often opted for above-the-knee dresses, flat sandals, and layered necklaces throughout her pregnancy. We loved it!

3. Kourtney Kardashian

From casual chic to red carpet ready, Kourtney Kardashian sure knows how to make pregnancy look good!

Before welcoming her second child – daughter Penelope – in July, the reality TV starlet was the queen of polished pregnancy looks. Whether it was at the latest Hollywood event or at the local farmer’s market, the reality TV mama did not disappoint. For her everyday maternity style, Kourt kept things casual chic in fitted duds showcasing her burgeoning belly, paired with the latest trends such as oversized handbags, fedoras, and blazers.

4. Kristin Cavallari

The Hills alum Kristin Cavallari was one of those lucky women who was ‘all belly’ during pregnancy.

And she dressed that bump beautifully while expecting her first child – son Camden who was born in August. From feminine flowing maxi dresses, to mini maternity looks, to skinny jeans and form-fitted tops, we could not get enough of Kristin’s maternity style.

5. Camila Alves

Brazilian beauty Camila Alves knows how to make pregnancy look good!

Before giving birth to her third child with Matthew McConaughey earlier this week, the model mom flaunted her maternity curves with fitted dresses and colorful prints as her belly grew.

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.”

Melissa Joan Hart and Merck for Mothers Raise Awareness About Maternal Mortality

Thursday, November 15th, 2012

In September, actress Melissa Joan Hart gave birth to her third child, Tucker. After giving birth, Hart teamed up with Merck for Mothers’ “Once Upon a Birth” campaign to raise awareness about maternal mortality worldwide and to find solutions for safe and healthy pregnancies. Recently, Parents.com had a few moments to chat with Hart about the partnership, her recent pregnancy and birth, and what it’s like to raise three boys.

Tell me about your partnership with the “Once Upon a Birth” campaign.

I partnered with Merck for Once Upon a Birth. Eight hundred women die every day as a result of pregnancy and childbirth, mainly because of hemorrhaging and preeclampsia, and 90 percent [of those deaths] are preventable with the right prenatal care and knowledge. For every story shared on the Merck for Mothers Facebook page, Merck will make a donation to Join My Village, one of the many programs that will help reduce the risk of maternal mortality. The UN wants to reduce the rate of maternal mortality by 75 percent by the year 2015, so Merck has made a pledge to commit 10 years and $500 million to this cause. They’re going to train women, husbands, and midwives in villages around the world so they can be more educated. Children won’t have to grow up motherless, and mothers won’t miss watching their child grow.

What’s the birth story you shared with Merck for Mothers?

I was trying to be really well prepared [about giving birth to newborn son, Tucker] for weeks beforehand. Every Sunday, I’d go get my nails done, and I’d put on mascara. I don’t wear makeup when I’m not working but I thought, “I’ll put on mascara, a little concealer, in case I go to the hospital and the baby comes out real quick, so I can take a cute picture.” My doctor wanted me to go walk on the beach to move my labor along and on that day, September 18, there was a big storm, with 40 miles per hour winds. My water broke [when I was] on the beach, so I ended up in the hospital with windblown hair that I never brushed, and my feet were muddy when I put them up on the stirrups. So it didn’t turn out the way I thought. But what was amazing was that my husband delivered the baby. The doctor handed him scrubs, said “Get ready, come on down here,” and then [my husband] pulled the baby out—head, shoulders, body—and placed him on me.

Was that his first time?

The first time [when I gave birth to Mason], he swore he wouldn’t cut the cord. He was, like, “I don’t want to be involved. I can’t, I’ll pass out.” But he did end up cutting the cord. The second time [when I gave birth to Braydon], he grabbed the baby’s shoulders and pulled him out. With Tucker, my husband advanced in the medical arena.

What are some of the most difficult things you experienced during your pregnancies?

Nothing life-threatening. With the first birth, I had complications with the epidural, and the Pitocin, because I wanted to induce, and Mason was just a big baby, so it was just hard to get him out. I would not allow a C-section unless it was an emergency. With my second son, I did a natural birth, and that was a really, really exciting experience. But it was extremely painful and I had a little hemorrhaging. With Tucker, there was a moment where his heart rate dropped during a really severe contraction, and that scared me. [The staff] put oxygen in me and flipped me over, so it was a little scary for a moment. I’m really lucky — I’ve had very healthy pregnancies, very healthy deliveries.

Do you have tips for women for a less stressful pregnancy?

I did study hypnobirthing to learn about a more natural approach to childbirth. It educates you a lot on what is and isn’t necessary during a delivery. It teaches you great relaxation techniques and meditation, and you get soundtracks to help you relax. It really helps with labor. I would play music for the baby while doing my relaxation techniques. One of the things I recommend for expecting moms and dads is to go see movies because that’s something they won’t do again. Going to the movies is something I miss a lot. My husband and I would go on date nights to the movies, but now with Tucker, it’s going to be a while until we see anything but a kid’s movie again. And before you get pregnant or at the very beginning of pregnancy, travel because you really won’t get to go anywhere, like Italy, for a while.

What’s the best or worst parenting advice you’ve ever received?

The best was from my mom, when I had my first child. I would get a lot of advice from different people, including strangers, and I was second-guessing things that I was doing. She said, “You have great instincts, you’re a wonderful mother, do what you feel is right.” And that was the best advice. The worst advice is putting rice cereal into milk to try to make kids sleep longer. It doesn’t work when they’re not ready, not when they’re under 4 months old. They keep you up all night screaming and yelling because their stomachs are not ready for it and it upsets them more.

Has there been anything challenging or surprising about raising three boys?

Not yet; it’s just the energy level. I grew up with all girls. I don’t have to worry about doing the boys’ hair, and they’re easily entertained in a mud puddle; they don’t sit and color like girls. They want to run and jump and splash and throw things, so you have a lot of Band-Aids around and a lot of ice packs, because they’re always getting banged and bruised.

What are some of the best things you’ve learned from motherhood? What are some things you think will be easier with Tucker, because you’ve already had two boys?

Something that I’ve learned is, you can never be completely prepared for any situation, and it’s amazing how far your instincts will take you. Just being able to handle a situation when it arises is pretty incredible, as a mother. I’ve learned that you never know what to expect. Every little thing changes so quickly, but at the same time, each milestone is so amazing.

10 Celebrity Parents Who Do (and Don’t) Want Their Kids In Showbiz

Thursday, November 8th, 2012

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

If you were in show business, would you want your children to follow in your footsteps? Or would you discourage your children from the limelight of Hollywood with every ounce of your being?

Celebrity Baby Scoop checks out which celeb parents have encouraged their children to enter the wild world of fame and fortune, those that forbid it with all their might, and the ones that sit on the fence.

1. John Travolta

John Travolta has kept us entertained since the 70s in the huge hits Saturday Night Fever and Grease. And not to mention his triumphant career comeback in the 90s cult classic, Pulp Fiction. Prior to the tragic death of his son Jett, John appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show and announced his daughter Ella’s debut in the big screen comedy, Old Dogs.

“Jett was young when he saw Look Who’s Talking, but he didn’t like it when I was kissing Kirstie Alley. But Ella took right to it right away. That’s why last year she said, ‘When am I going to do a movie with you?’ Little did she know, dad had a trick up his sleeve. She’s a natural performer,” John said. “She’s just like I was. I didn’t push it at all, because I knew that worked. My mother didn’t push me, either. We were just given our space to be whatever we wanted to be, and I decided that works better than any kind of pressure.” John added, “Unless they’re afraid they’re going to be rejected and they want to protect them. And I can imagine parents would fear that, but you can be rejected in any profession.”

2. Tom Cruise

Fellow Scientologist, Tom Cruise, agrees that show business is a great place for kids. Tom’s son Connor entered the family business (mom is Tom’s ex, Nicole Kidman) when he was 14 years old in Will Smith’s flick Seven Pounds. Perhaps one day Tom and Katie Holmes’ 6-year-old daughter Suri will follow in her big brother – and her divorced parents’ – footsteps.

When asked if he’d like Suri to enter showbiz, Tom said:

“I’d love it. Acting is work I love. I love to create life and give energy, create characters, and create stories.”

3. Will Smith

Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith are all-for their kids entering the family business. Both of their children – son Jaden, 14, and daughter Willow, 11 – have graced the big screen. Jaden costarred with his father in The Pursuit of Happyness, appeared alongside Keanu Reeves in The Day the Earth Stood Still, and in the remake of the Karate Kid. Willow made her acting debut alongside her papa in I Am Legend and later lit up the big screen in Kit Kittredge: An American Girl.

So what does Will think of his kids entering the family business?

“She has a drive. She has an energy and she just connects to human emotion,” Will said of daughter Willow. “I think a big part was probably [seeing] Jaden after The Pursuit of Happyness. She saw what Jaden did, and she was like, ‘I want that,’” Will added. “Jaden is [like] Johnny Depp. He just wants to do good work . . . He loves acting, he just wants to make good movies,” Will said and joked, “and Willow is Paris Hilton. Willow wants to be on TV.”

Tinseltown’s Tots Go Trick-or-Treating

Thursday, October 18th, 2012

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

Could you imagine the likes of Shiloh Jolie-Pitt or Honor Warren coming to your front door on Halloween night? Celebrity Baby Scoop is taking a look at 15 celebrity families that love to go trick-or-treating with their tots in their swanky neighborhoods.

1. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie

RadarOnline caught Brangelina and their brood trick-or-treating in the Los Angeles area on Halloween night.

Brad Pitt looked hilarious dressed up as DJ Lance Rock from the kids TV show Yo Gabba Gabba! His leading lady, Angelina Jolie, went as the walking dead, while Maddox was a dead army soldier, Zahara was Batgirl, and Shiloh was a jet fighter.

2. Christina Aguilera

Grammy Award-winning singer Christina Aguilera was spotted with son Max trick-or-treating in Brentwood, Calif. on Halloween night. The mother-son duo looked adorable in their matching skeleton costumes.

3. Scott Baio

See Dad Run star Scott Baio and wife Renee have big plans for their daughter Bailey, nearly 5, this Halloween.

“Bailey got a witch Minnie Mouse costume that has orange and black polka dots, and we will go trick-or-treating up in our neighborhood,” Scott recently told Celebrity Baby Scoop. “There are hundreds of kids that come up here, so it is a lot of fun.”

When she was just 2, Bailey buzzed along as a bee in their Los Angeles neighborhood.

“We went trick-or-treating in our Toluca Lake neighborhood,” Renee said. “It’s very festive for Halloween. They close down some of the streets. Buses drop children off by what looks to be in the hundreds. A lot of the parents/adults dress up too. A few of the homes (the Kerns family – the juice makers – and the Disney family) really go out with turning their property into a haunted house scene.”
