Star Moms Participate in ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Thursday, August 21st, 2014

By Jenny Schaferice bucket challenge

Celebrity Baby Scoop is joining in on the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS.

In the trending campaign, people are asking 2-3 of their friends to dump a bucket of ice water over their heads. If your friends do not accept the challenge within 24 hours, they must donate $100 to an ALS association of choice.

In the last few weeks, the #IceBucketChallenge has literally soaked some celebrities, including Justin Timberlake, Jimmy Fallon and Martha Stewart. Not to mention, some of our favorite celebrity parents such as Gwen Stefani, Nicole Richie, Jessica Alba and Gavin Rossdale. Check out Gwen and Gavin’s video here, and then see their 8-year-old son Kingston also take on the challenge.

Pop superstar Jennifer Lopez also took the challenge, and got some help from her 6-year-old twins Max and Emme. The Jenny From the Block singer, 45, shared the video via Instagram.

And we loved Ben Affleck’s funny Ice Bucket Challenge via Facebook, where he got playful with his wife, fellow actress Jennifer Garner, and their daughters Violet, 8, and Seraphina, 5, erupted in contagious giggles when he threw her into their backyard pool.

Often referred to as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.

Celebrity Baby Scoop’s senior editor, Jenny Schafer, lost her father to ALS and created her own video to challenge a few Hollywood moms: Hollywood insider GG Benitez, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks, Real Housewives of O.C. star Tamra Judge, and Broadway dancer, singer and actress Courtney Lopez.

First to accept the challenge was GG Benitez. See her fun video here (andhere) and check out the online buzz from her clients who took the challenge: Mabel’s LabelsPOSH Mommy and Freebies2Deals and The Orange Rhino.

Next up for the challenge was Courtney Lopez. Check out this priceless Instagram video, showing her support for the cause — with some help from her adorable 3 1/2-year-old daughter Gia.

“I was nominated by @herscoop and @celebritybabyscoop for the #icebucketchallenge #alsicebucketchallenge!,” Courtney says, then nominates actress Eva Longoria.

“And I nominate @evalongoria and @kearrangiovanni ! #doit,” she continues.

Courtney’s husband, Extra host Mario Lopez, couldn’t help but show his support. The Saved by the Bell alum, 40, went on to tweeting about their video.

Celebrity Moms Share Back To School Tips

Thursday, August 14th, 2014

By Jenny Schafer

It’s time to start thinking about the back to school season.

While this time of year can cause stress and anxiety, Celebrity Baby Scoop reached out to some savvy celebrity moms – and rounded up top favorite brands – to help beat the back to school chaos.

Jennie Garth

Mystery Girls star Jennie Garth and her ex-husband, Twilight star Peter Facinelli, are parents to three daughters: Luca, 17, Lola, 12, and Fiona, 8. The Beverly Hills, 90210 alum, 42, shares her favorite back to school quote, from none other than Dr. Seuss.

“You’re off to great places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, so get on your way!”

The mom-of-three went on to share her favorite aspect of the back to school season. “[I love] all the excitement that brews over new classes, new teachers, new clothes and a new year of experiences,” Jennie tells Celebrity Baby Scoop.

Some of her favorite back to school products? “I love Mabel’s Labels because it makes everything so easy to keep track of — especially when you have 3 girls,” Jennie says. “I also love the Planet Box lunch boxes — they keep everything fresh without hurting the environment.”

Rosie Pope

Pregnant in Heels star Rosie Pope and her husband Daron are parents to four kids: sons J.R., nearly 6, Wells, 3, and daughters Vivienne, 2, and Bridget, 5 months. The mother-of-four, 34, advises moms to start their day earlier than everyone else.

“The more time you give yourself the less stressed you’ll be,” Rosie shares with Celebrity Baby Scoop.

“I found myself constantly nagging the kids to get dressed, eat breakfast, run to the car, run, run, run,” she admits. “[Then I asked myself] why make the morning so stressful when adding an element of time can make each morning so much more fun. Waking up earlier also means earlier to bed and that gives you a little personal time too.”

As for the back to school season excitement, Rosie says she’s a “total nerd.”

“I’m a total nerd at heart and so I love, love preparing for back to school with stationary buying adventures and picking out this years’ back packs,” she admits. “The more excitement around school, the more your child will want to go and that’s a beautiful thing.

Melissa Joan Hart

Sabrina, the Teenage Witch alum Melissa Joan Hart and her husband, musician Mark Wilkerson, are parents to three sons: Mason, 8, Brady, 6, and Tucker, nearly 2.

The mom-of-three, 38, talks about the “bittersweet” aspect of the back to school season.

“It’s always bittersweet when the fall arrives and it’s time to get the kiddies back to school,” MJH tells Celebrity Baby Scoop. “It marks the end of summer and signifies that your little ones are growing up too quickly.”

That said, the Melissa & Joey actress is sure to count her blessings at the same time.

“But, usually for busy mommies, it can be a blessing to have your days to yourself again — at least for a little while,” she says. “But it also means busy mornings trying to get your picky eaters to hurry and finish their sausage and eggs so they don’t miss the bus or the bell. And it also means the crazy over-scheduled sports routines begin again — not to mention homework.”

The actress goes on to share some of her favorite back to school products that help her smooth-out the transition.

“Some things that help me get my kids back to school ready are Mabel’s Labels because I can make sure all those coats, backpacks, lunch boxes and hats don’t go missing,” says the busy mom-of-three. “It’s always nice for the kids when you send them off with a new first day of school outfit, and of course a new pair of sneakers by Stride Rite that will help them get the most out of walking those hallways and navigating recess times. And Net Nanny is a great tool to help parents feel like they are protecting their kids when they are online attempting to do their homework.”

Courtney Lopez

Extra host Mario Lopez and his wife, Broadway dancer Courtney Lopez, are parents to daughter Gia, nearly 4, and son Dominic, 11 months. The mom-of-two, 32, opens up about the back to school season.

“The back to school brings an excitement to our household,” Courtney tells Celebrity Baby Scoop. “We love school!”

Courtney goes on to share some of her favorite back to school products.

“It’s always fun to order Gia’s new Mabel’s Labels to help keep her stuff out of the lost and found, her stylish, yet dependable Stride Rite shoes, and now we have discovered Net Nanny to keep her safe when she uses the internet for any cute little assignments,” she shares. “I just finished reading a book from Melea Johnson (“Create Your Own Money Saving Adventure” fromwww.freebies2Deals.com) on how to save for all of our back to school goodies, too.”

Natalie Morales

Today Show co-anchor Natalie Morales and husband Joseph Rhodes are parents to two sons: Josh, 10, and Luke, 6. The NBC News star talks about about her love of the back to school season.

“Back to school has always been my favorite time of year,” Natalie tells Celebrity Baby Scoop. “Now that I have kids, even more so! It’s about new beginnings, new possibilities and of course back to school shopping.”

The mom-of-two, 42, shares her best tips for getting ready for the season.

“A few weeks before school starts, I always look through my kids clothes and make sure they have everything they need,” she shares. “I have them try on stuff that they may have outgrown and figure out what I need to replace. And I love getting new school supplies. I still remember every year I always loved getting my new Trapper Keeper. With two young boys who lose everything, I also make a point of labeling everything and I love Mabel’s Labels.”

Brooke Anderson

Entertainment Tonight correspondent Brooke Anderson and her husband Jim Walker are parents to daughters Kate, 5, and Lily George, 8 months. The mom-of-two, 36, talks about her love for school and getting her girls ready for class.

“School is the first step in making your dreams a reality,” Brooke shares with Celebrity Baby Scoop.

She adds: “My mom was a teacher so I saw firsthand how hard she worked to ensure her students learned as much as possible while also having fun. It’s important to not only nurture learning and reading in our children, but to thank the teachers who dedicate so much to helping kids grow and achieve.”

And it’s a bittersweet school season for her elder daughter who is entering “big girl school.”

“I love the fresh start and new beginning that comes with every back to school season,” Brooke says. “A new backpack, pencil set, and first day outfit add to the excitement too. I have to say, I’m a little emotional about it this year as my daughter graduated preschool and is starting kindergarten — real school! Where did my little baby go? Although I’m anxious, luckily she is thrilled and cannot wait to begin ‘big girl’ school. So no need to worry! Right?!”

Brooke goes on to share some of her best tips – and products – for the back to school season.

“When I say I label everything withMabel’s Labels, I label everything – backpack, lunch bag, clothes, shoes,” she admits. “It gives me peace of mind that her belongings will always make their way back to her even if she misplaces them (as 5-year olds tend to do). And bonus, the labels are super cute and fun. My daughter loves to pick out her own clothes and shoes and I’m sure the first day outfit will be a big deal [laughs]. She will probably choose her fave Hello Kitty Stride Rite kicks to give her a little luck as she navigates kindergarten.”

Nina Garcia

Project Runway host Nina Garcia and husband David Conrod are parents to two sons: Lucas, 7, and Alexander, nearly 4.

“I love to see my kids energized by the back to school excitement,” the mom-of-two, 49, tells Celebrity Baby Scoop. “They can’t wait to see their friends, meet their new teachers, and get back to their routine.”

As for getting her sons prepared for class, Nina enjoys every moment.

“We really enjoy planning for back to school and buying their uniforms for school and sports,” Nina shares. “We order most of our back to school clothes from Lands Ends, LL Bean, Patagonia and Brooks Bros. We use Mabel’s Labels to organize it all.”

She adds: “I remember the excitement that I felt when going back to school. I enjoy seeing the excitement now in my kids and I do my very best to make it a family planning event.”

Molly Mesnick

Bachelor couple Jason and Molly Mesnick are proud parents to 1-year-old daughter Riley.

“When I was a kid, buying all of my new school supplies was the best part of getting ready to go back to school,” Molly tells Celebrity Baby Scoop. “I still love doing that with Ty today,” she says of her 9-year-old stepson.

Some of her favorite back to school products?  “I love Mabel’s Labels, the reality star, 29, says. “[They are] perfect for the kids’ lunch boxes, gym shoes, and school supplies. I also love to stock up on Stride Rite shoes. The kids wear through them so quickly, so we’ll get them a few pairs for every occasion and activity.”

Garcelle Beauvais

NYPD Blue star Garcelle Beauvais is proud mom to three sons: Oliver, 23, and twins Jax and Jaid, nearly 7.

With her second children’s book titled, I Am Living In Two Homes, coming out August 19 on Amazon, the actress-singer, 47, shares her favorite mommy motto.

“I always say, ‘Be the BEST you can be,’ to my boys,” Garcelle shares with Celebrity Baby Scoop.

As for her favorite aspects of getting back to school, the mom-of-three admits she gets wrapped up in the excitement of the season.

“I love the shopping, of course,” she laughs. “Target is our go-to store. I also love the excitement of getting to see which teacher we get and which friends are in the boys class.”

And she shares her favorite back to school products. “[I love getting new] backpacks, Stride Rite sneakers, cool water bottles, all labeled with Mabel’s Labels.”

Chandie and Joey Lawrence

“Here we go again” is Chandie and Joey Lawrence‘s favorite back to school quote. The couple are parents to daughters Charleston, 8, and Liberty, 4.

As for their favorite aspect of the back to school season, Chandie says it’s “the excitement from our girls.” She adds: “Getting new lunch boxes, backpacks and clothes. And, them seeing their friends again! We get excited seeing all the new things they are learning and remembering.”

The couple went on to list their favorite back to school products.

“[We love] Mabel’s Labels – gotta label things, right?” they laugh. “[We also use] Thirty-One gifts lunch totes and utility totes for dance and sports; Funkins cloth napkins (perfect little place mats for the not so clean lunch room tables); Sistema food containers (they are totally amazing); Nalgene water bottles; and of course the LL Bean backpack (they are indestructible). As well, Lunch Box Love have these little love notes with fun trivia which a staple for the lunch bags — the perfect reminder that they are being thought of during the day.”

Alison Sweeney: It’s Important To Be a Good Role Model For My Kids

Thursday, August 7th, 2014

The Biggest Loser host Alison Sweeney recently spoke with Celebrity Baby Scoop about her newest novel, getting a good night’s sleep, fitness routine, and summertime with her two children, Ben and Megan.

CBS: Health and fitness is on everyone’s mind these days. What tips have you learned for maintaining a healthy weight and lifestyle from your time on The Biggest Loser?

AS: “The main thing I’ve adopted is the importance of making it an overall healthy lifestyle as my way of life. It’s not about a diet or a short term goal, it is making the right choices each and every day. There are of course times to cheat and have some treats but those are the days that I try to get in an extra hard workout or plan one for the next day to still feel good about all of my choices.”

CBS: What does your personal health regime look like? What keeps your motivated? Do you feel pressure to be a good role model to your kids?

AS: “Being a good role model to my kids is the most important thing in the world to me. I find that showing them my healthy lifestyle of eating right and enjoying workouts sets a great example for them, and gets them excited for their fitness. I try to work out every day and to eat healthy foods, and to always get a good night’s rest.”

CBS: As a mom, you want your kids to lead a healthy lifestyle, how do you insure your kids eat right, exercise and get enough sleep?

AS: “My kids don’t know anything different. They love their vegetables and don’t really know fast food. They love getting me ingredients from our garden and they help me get dinner together in a way that has them invested in the meal too. So it’s that much easier to get them to enjoy eating foods that they helped prepare. We hike, play tag and do other fun activities together. Plus they know what time bedtime is to ensure a good rest.”

CBS: What did Benjamin and Megan do over the summer? Do they have any favorite summer activities? Any special family traditions to celebrate the end of summer?

AS: “We have such fun as a family during the summer. We’re constantly being active outside, taking vacations when we can and just enjoying time together. The kids have been in camp a bit but it’s more about our quality time together.”

CBS: Do the kids like school? What are their favorite subjects?

AS: “My kids do like school and they love to learn things. Ben is really into science and Megan loves theater and performing (wonder where she gets that!).”

CBS: Tell us a little about your decision to leave Days and take on a directing role at GH. What prompted it? How hard was it to part with your character of 21 years?

AS: “After 7 years of hosting The Biggest Loser AND being Sami on Days, I realized that I needed to make a change to have more time with my family and to pursue other career ambitions that don’t require the same time commitments. I continue to love hosting The Biggest Loser (which returns on September 11 to NBC) and directing is a passion as well. I’m hoping to direct again at Days soon and loved being at GH to direct there as well. Plus, I continue to love writing and am currently working on my third novel.”

CBS: Congratulations on your new novel! What inspired you to write ‘Scared Scriptless’? Tell us a little about Maddy, is she based on anyone in particular?

AS: “Maddy is a compilation of several people in my life, starting with me! Many of the characters in this book are based on friends I work with and some characters you recognize from my first novel, The Star Attraction. I love the challenge of great storytelling and I love writing the stories that come to me, especially since I’ve spent my whole career telling the stories of other writers’ as an actress. I love to read and my goal is to have these books be ones others love to read for a break from their hectic lives.”

Larry King: “You Don’t Divorce Your Children”

Thursday, July 10th, 2014

We all know Larry King as the world-renowned TV anchor who kept Americans in-the-know on global happenings for 25 years via his CNN show, Larry King Live.

My Life As A Dad, the popular web series that delves into the lives of celebrity fathers, recently chatted with Larry King about his experience in being a dad to five children, two of which were born almost four decades after his first children.

Larry King’s son Larry, Jr., adopted son Andy, and daughter Chaia were born in the 60′s, a hectic time when his promising and long-withstanding broadcast journalism career took off. In the interview, Larry shares how he thinks his earlier children might view how he fathers his sons Chance (b. 1999) and Cannon (b. 2000) differently now.

“I don’t know if they are hurt by it…they don’t say it,” Larry says. “They all pretty much handle it very well and they love their younger brothers. But I imagine that there is a little resentment. That would be normal, you know, why he wasn’t there for me all the time. It’s the kind of life I led and if I could do a do-over again, I would have spent more time.”

The reputable TV anchor goes on to share his greatest piece of advice for parents and discloses one of his biggest regrets. His advice for parents: “The advice I would give is ‘you can’t get it back.’ The day you didn’t go to the game, you can’t get that back. You didn’t go. The hotel room that goes unsold will never be sold. The day you didn’t spend, you didn’t spend. That is a big regret of mine; that I didn’t do more.”

He also discusses how many men don’t understand real love until they have a child.

“It’s the first time in your life,” he shares. “You don’t have to love your wife–that’s why there is divorce. You don’t divorce your children. There are things about your children that will annoy you, but the love is spectacular.”

He also shares a special moment he had at one of his son’s baseball games: “Yesterday, my son pitched three scoreless innings for Notre Dame’s scrimmage game. I was sitting in the stands at the beautiful field at Notre Dame. He was pitching and standing on the mound with that regal look…I just looked at him and could almost cry. I flashed back to the day he was born and the day I took him to his first game. And there he is, standing with that regal look. He struck out a guy…that jolt just goes through your heart. He asked me, ‘Do you root for me more than you root for the Dodgers?’ and I said, ‘Of course!’”

And does he have any thoughts about the fatherhood experience?

“Fatherhood is fantastic, fantastic.,” Larry states. “Whatever is second best is a distant second.”

5 Over-The-Top Celebrity Kid Birthday Bashes

Thursday, June 26th, 2014

In Hollywood, celebrity parents shell out unbelievable amounts of money to throw big birthday parties for their babies. Let’s look at five celebrity tots whose birthday bashes rank among the most lavish seen in the last few years.

North West

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West went all out for North’s first birthday party, which was branded by the couple as “Kidchella.” The mini music festival in Calabasas, California, boasted a karaoke stage, Ferris wheel and entertainment for guests of all ages. Nori wore a flower-power inspired dress and enjoyed a three-tier tie-dyed cake.

Blue Ivy

Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z spared no expense to celebrate their daughter’s first birthday. Clocking in at a rumored $200,000, Blue Ivy’s party featured a princess theme and was replete with pink and white roses. Costumes, jewelry and gifts were provided for all of Blue Ivy’s friends and their parents. In addition to the party and an extravagant cake, Blue Ivy received a diamond-encrusted Barbie from her parents valued at $80,000.

Suri Cruise

For her fifth birthdaySuri’s parents – Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes threw her a circus-themed party complete with live elephants and giraffes. Thanks to the little girl’s love for Alice in Wonderland, the party was attended by professional actors dressed in full costume and guests dressed in fanciful attire inspired by Alice. The party reportedly cost some $20,000 and was thrown at the private residence shared by Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes at the time.

Kingston Rossdale

Kingston is the apple of Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale’s eyes, and that was clear at his fourth birthday party. His famous parents spent a whopping $15,000 on their firstborn son’s birthday!  The relaxed Los Angeles bash featured a variety of snack foods, a lemonade stand, cotton candy machine and big birthday cake. Kingston’s parents kept the party kid focused with entertainment including super hero characters, bouncy houses, live birds, balloon artists and face painters.

Zahara Jolie-Pitt

Notoriously private, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt didn’t publicize the details of daughter Zahara’s seventh birthday party. Nonetheless, Angelina was spotted out in Sherman Oaks buying a new wardrobe for Z, and celebrity bloggers speculated that the family threw a fun party with an African-inspired theme in their home.

Eli Manning: “I Try To Enjoy Every Moment I Have With My Family”

Thursday, June 19th, 2014

This Father’s Day, Oral-B honored dads with the help of Eli Manning, New York Giants quarterback and proud dad, and March of Dimes, an organization that celebrates mothers and fathers every day.

Manning, 33, has had great success on the field. But his most cherished memories have nothing to do with roaring crowds, smart plays or perfect passes.  Celebrity Baby Scoop Scoop spoke with Eli about spending time with his family, his father, football great Archie Manning, and his two young daughters – Ava, 3 , and Lucy, 1.

CBS: Tell us about your partnership with Oral B and the March of Dimes. How did you get involved? What inspired you to participate in this Father’s Day celebration?

EM: “I’m thrilled to partner with Oral-B and March of Dimes this Father’s Day because being a dad is my most important responsibility. As a young boy, I can remember throwing around the football with my dad in the front yard and now, I get to make my own special memories with my daughters. I’m proud to partner with Oral-B and March of Dimes to celebrate those little moments between fathers and children, no matter where they live or what they do.”

CBS: How does your family celebrate Father’s Day? What traditions mean the most to you?

EM: “My family and I spend the holiday outside; playing games and running around. As a boy, my favorite Father’s Day memory was playing with my dad and brothers in the backyard. We were always very active.”

CBS: How influential has your Dad been in your parenting style? What do you admire most about your Dad?

EM: “My dad has been extremely influential in my parenting style. I admire that my dad always set a good example about being a good sport. After a game, my dad didn’t care about winning or losing. He would give us a hug and remind us not take it too seriously. My dad also never tried to live his athletic career or aspirations through me and my brothers – if we wanted help with a play or throw, he would of course help us but we’d have to ask.”

Hank Baskett: Alijah and Hank Make Every Day Father’s Day

Friday, June 13th, 2014

Kendra On Top star Hank Baskett has a lot to celebrate this Father’s Day.  The proud papa opens up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about family life with their newest addition – daughter Alijah Mary.

The former NFL star, 31, chats about how little Hank, 4, is adjusting to his baby sister, how raising a daughter will be different, and his Father’s Day plans.

CBS: You and Kendra welcomed a beautiful baby girl into your family recently, how has Alijah Mary changed your life so far? Does she have your wrapped around her little finger yet?

HB: “Alijah has been absolutely amazing. Other than the fact that early on she was more like a vampire with her sleeping habits. But seriously she has been a little angel. For the first few days in the hospital I couldn’t help but look at her and have my eyes water up. She’s papa’s lil girl and I’m already feeling that. She has me wrapped more than by her little finger. I might as well have hand cuffs on. Gonna be hard to tell her no.”

CBS: How is Kendra feeling? Is Alijah sleeping well so far?

HB: “Kendra is doing very good. The nurses at the hospital were even amazed at how fast she was up walking around. Kendra had definitely been a trooper. Until Alijah stops breastfeeding I’m basically a changing parent.

CBS: How is Hank Jr. adjusting to having a little sister? He’s been an only child for 4 years, does he like being a big brother?

HB: “Honestly Lil Hank had reacted better than Kendra and I could’ve ever imagined. He had been extremely loving and caring with Alijah. He always wants to give her a kiss in the head before she goes to sleep and before he goes to school. He’s even told us at times we couldn’t hold her because she’s his baby sister and he’s protecting her. He’s gonna be one hell of a big brother!”

CBS: How do you think raising a daughter will differ from raising a son? In what ways do you think you’ll be more strict or lenient?

HB: “There’s gonna be slight changes in raising a girl but we don’t want to change things too much. We feel like we’ve done pretty good with Hank and don’t want her treated any differently. I must admit that I’m exited to have someone on my side now. There are times Kendra and Lil Hank gang up on me.”

CBS: Father’s Day is coming up, what will make this Father’s Day special for you?

HB: “I couldn’t ask for anything more for Father’s Day than I already have. Kendra has blessed me with two of the most amazing gifts a man could ask for. Alijah and Hank make everyday Father’s Day to me. Kendra is the most amazing wife and mother I could’ve ever dreamed of. She is very adamant that I get enough rest and at times I feel guilty because she’s doing so much. Probably my favorite thing so far is seeing Alijah and Lil Hank curled up in her arms. I just sit back, take many pictures, and thank the Lord for putting Kendra in my life. So much has happened in 6 years since we met I can’t help but look forward to the many more ahead!!”
