Star Moms Share Mother’s Day Plans

Thursday, May 2nd, 2013

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

In honor of on May 12, we asked some of our favorite celebrity moms how they’re planning to spend the special day.

From new moms Holly Madison and Giuliana Rancic to mom-of-four Tori Spelling, let’s look at how the stars celebrate all things mom.

Giuliana Rancic:
Reality stars Giuliana Rancic and Bill Rancic welcomed their first child, son Duke, in August 2012. The new mom opened up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about her big plans to celebrate her first Mother’s Day.

“Bill and I are having our moms come to LA for Mother’s Day – to make it special for all of us,” she shared. “We’re planning a fancy bunch with the whole family at a nice hotel in Newport Coast and then a walk on the beach. Really, I just want to relax and enjoy the day together as a whole family.”

She added: “This Mother’s Day is especially meaningful because it’s my first time to celebrate as a mother, of course! After struggling for years to have a baby, it’s a real gift to be able to spend the special day with Bill, Duke and our family.”

Holly Madison:
Before welcoming her first child, daughter Rainbow, on March 5, Playboy model Holly Madison shared her hopes for her first Mother’s Day.

“I hope my boyfriend and I can find something fun to do that someone only a few months old will enjoy,” Holly shared. “Maybe we will take her to the Springs Preserve (a park here in Vegas) and see if she reacts to any of the animals and the nature.”

Tiffani Thiessen:
White Collar star Tiffani Thiessen is mom to 2-year-old daughter Harper. The Saved by the Bell alum talked about celebrating Mother’s Day in New York City with her mom and her daughter.

“Being a mom now myself, it is even more special,” she shared. “What’s great is we will be in New York again this year as I shoot Season 5 of White Collar. I’ll get to celebrate the day with my Mom and my daughter, all of us together.

Niki Taylor:
Supermodel Niki Taylor is proud mom to four children – 18-year-old twin sons Jake and Hunter, 4-year-old daughter Ciel, and son Rex, 17 months. Here’s what the blonde beauty had to say about what Mother’s Day means to her.

“I don’t know what my family has planned for me,” she admitted. ”I just want to be with my babies and I hope I am with my mom and my sister. My mom is still an amazing mom and she’s a wonderful grandmother as well. I thank her and always pray for her. I still always call her for advice. To me, Mother’s Day is about my mom and I want to be with her on that day. It is a day for the family to be together.”

She added: “My favorite Mother’s Day gifts are anything with chocolate or sugar in it [laughs]. Also, I think quality time is always the best gift.”

Singer Jewel on Motherhood and Learning “The Balancing Act”

Thursday, April 25th, 2013

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

Singer and songwriter Jewel has been one busy mama! She recently performed during the Academy of Country Music Awards’ Lifting Lives Moment to benefit ConAgra Foods’ Child Hunger Ends Here Campaign. She is also set to play June Carter Cash in the Lifetime Original Movie Ring of Fire, coming out this May.

Jewel opens up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about her son, Kase, 20-months, who went on his first “road tour,” her involvement with ConAgra and the cause to end child hunger, finding a balance between being a mom and having a creative outlet, and her Mother’s Day plans.

Celebrity Baby Scoop: Tell us about your partnership with ACM Lifting Lives. How did you get involved with the organization?

Jewel: “I was the spokesperson for ConAgra Foods last year. ConAgra’s initiative is to bring awareness to end child hunger, and they did this by partnering with the ACM. They have songwriters and artists write songs in different formats, such as a country song or a pop song, which are then used in the commercials. Last year, I sang a song for the campaign and Little Big Town performed it for the ACM Lifting Lives moment. This year, another girl wrote the song and I performed at the ACM Awards.”

CBS: How did you prepare for your performance at the Academy of Country Music Awards?

J: “I performed a medley of my song Hands and this other song. I’ve prepared in all sorts of ways. I had to work on the medley, work out the keys, and practice on it to make sure I was ready to do it live.”

Nick Lachey Is “Having A Blast” With Fatherhood

Thursday, April 18th, 2013

Already bought your tickets for this summer’s 98 Degrees and New Kids on the Block tour? Now you can share the experience with your little one! Nick Lachey of 98 Degrees just released an adorable children’s album called A Father’s Lullaby, and the mix of original and classic songs is sure to relax you and your baby.

Nick and his wife Vanessa became parents back in September, when their son Camden John was born. Now, the proud papa gushes to us about his music and his little boy:

Congratulations on Camden! How is fatherhood treating you so far?
I love being a dad. It’s just a blast. He’s a great kid, so I got lucky there. It’s definitely life changing but it’s been positive in every single possible way.

Do you have any advice for other new parents?
The best advice I got was to not give advice. Every kid is different and every scenario is different. You have to find your own way and figure out what works for you as parents. The only broad stroke advice I would give is enjoy every day. There’s something cool that happens every day with Camden and I’m just glad I’m there to see it.

You’re a huge sports fan. Will Camden be going to games with you?
He will! But I am open to the possibility that he doesn’t like sports. But until he tells me otherwise, we’re going to be all about it. Of course as a father, I look forward to taking him to his first baseball game or playing catch in the front yard. But I also want him to be his own person. Maybe he won’t like sports, and that’s fine.  He’s got to make his own way and discover his own passions.

Making A Father’s Lullaby must have been a different experience for you.
It was a really special project for me. I became interested in doing it once I found out we were pregnant, and I started thinking about all the changes that were going to happen. There were a lot of emotions and feelings that I wanted to express. And I thought what better way to do it than a lullaby record? It wasn’t like writing a typical pop record, because the idea is to be calming and soothing. The producer and I poured ourselves into this project as fathers.

Are there any songs on the album that are particularly meaningful for you?
The two most important men in my life are my dad and my son. “A Father’s Lullaby” is a song about passing on traditions that I got from my father to my son, and one day in turn, he’ll pass them onto his son.  It’s about that bond between generations that’s so important. There’s also the song, “You Are My Sunshine,” which my grandfather used to sing to me all the time. It was special to put that on the record for him as well.

It sounds like the whole CD is pretty special to you.
I’m really excited to share this album with all my fans out there. A lot of them were fans of 98 Degrees many years ago, and now they have families and kids of their own. I think it’s a great way to continue to share the music and the experience of being a parent with them.

10 Model Moms: From Stilettos to Strollers

Thursday, March 28th, 2013

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

Some of the world’s most famous models have traded in their stilettos for strollers and the catwalk for the playground.

From Heidi Klum, who has four children, to Cindy Crawford, proud mom of two, let’s take a look at some of our favorite model moms.

Gisele Bündchen

Brazilian beauty Gisele Bündchen is mom to son Benjamin, 3, daughter Vivienne, 3 months, and 5-year-old stepson Jack.

“We feel so lucky to have been able to experience the miracle of birth once again and are forever grateful for the opportunity to be the parents of another little angel,” Gisele and her New England Patriots quarterback husband Tom Brady said after their daughter’s birth.

Cindy Crawford

Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber are parents to son Presley, 13, and Kaia, 11. And it seems Cindy’s kids have inherited mom’s stunning good looks.

At the age of 10, Kaia made her modeling debut for Young Versace. But according to her model mom, her little lookalike 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.’”

Heidi Klum

German beauty Heidi Klum and her ex-husband Seal are parents to four children: Leni, 8, Henry, 7, Johan, 6, and Lou, 3.

The Project Runway host – who is now dating her bodyguard Martin Kirsten – filed for divorce last April and said that their split was not “devastating.”

“Did I wish for this to happen to my family? No,” Heidi said. “But everyone is healthy. We’re moving on with our lives. If someone got [very sick] – God forbid – that would be a real problem. It’s not what I wanted. It’s not what anyone wanted. But it’s not a real problem.”

Christy Turlington

From the catwalk and magazine covers to healthcare advocate, Christy Turlington has made it her mission to raise awareness about maternal mortality worldwide. The former supermodel has since made the documentary “No Woman, No Cry,” and she is the founder of Every Mother Counts.

Mom to daughter Grace, 9, and 6-year-old son Finn with husband Edward Burns, Christy opened up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about trading in her stilettos for charity work.

“My daughter is particularly proud that it was her coming into the world that changed the course of my life to the extent that it has,” said Christy of how her healthcare advocacy began. “My son is always just happy to have me when he has me, but he’s also very generous and doesn’t mind sharing.”

Alessandra Ambrosio

Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio and her partner Jamie Mazur are parents to daughter Anja, 4, and son Noah, 10 months.

Walking in her model mama’s famous footsteps, Anja and Alessandra recently launched London Fog’s Spring 2013 campaign.

“Anja had a lot of fun, she loved all of her outfits,” Alessandra said. “She was really into the polka dot trench coat.”

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 Moms Talk Postpartum Weight Loss

Thursday, March 14th, 2013

This post was written by our friends at Celebrity Baby Scoop

The urgency to lose the baby weight in Hollywood is almost as serious as an Oscar win.

Who dropped the postpartum pounds the fastest? Who debuted their post-baby body on a magazine cover? How much did she gain during her pregnancy?

Some of our favorite celebrity moms – including Drew Barrymore, Jessica Simpson, and Gwyneth Paltrow – are sounding off on this buzzed about topic.

Drew Barrymore
Former child star Drew Barrymore recently sat down with talk show queen Oprah Winfrey and opened up about husband Will Kopelman and their 4-month-old daughter Olive.

“Absolutely not. I want nothing to do with that hamster wheel from hell,” Drew said of quickly dropping the baby weight to appease Hollywood’s standards.

She added: “It seems miserable. I want to be healthy enough that I feel good mentally and I don’t care what the weight is,” the E.T. star said.

Gwyneth Paltrow
Mom-of-two Gwyneth Paltrow supported her good pal, celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson, at her Pregnancy Project event in New York City last Fall.

“You can really put the pressure on yourself — I didn’t,” Gwyneth has said of shedding her postpartum pounds after giving birth to her now 8-year-old daughter Apple and son Moses, 6.

The Academy Award-winning actress said that she revelled in new motherhood and took her time to lose those last few pounds.

“I was at home in sweatpants and breastfeeding for a long time,” Gwyneth shared. “I really took my time. And when I started to want to get back into shape, I was so thankful to find Tracy.”

Tracy Anderson
Celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson recently launched her Pregnancy Project workout DVD collection, providing women with safe and effective fitness routines during the pre-and-postnatal periods.

Tracy tells Celebrity Baby Scoop that these DVDs – which she filmed during her recent pregnancy with daughter Penelope – are a “passion project” that are “really needed for women.” The fitness guru – who has an impressive client list including Gwyneth Paltrow, Madonna, Molly Sims, and Christy Turlington – opened up about losing the 33 pounds she gained in just 11 weeks.

“I’ve spent thirteen years creating this fitness method for women and I use it myself, so I really credit the method for staying fit in the prenatal and postnatal stages,” Tracy shared with Celebrity Baby Scoop.

“In my first pregnancy 14 years ago, I gained 60 pounds and it was the most nightmarish thing to get off,” she added. “I was so happy to not have to worry about going into pregnancy this time; I knew what I was doing. I followed my own advice during this second pregnancy and gained around 33 pounds. I was able to lose it all in about eleven weeks.”

Jessica Simpson
Jessica Simpson’s 50-pound weight gain during her first pregnancy was one of the most talked-about topics of last year.

The Fashion Star mentor recently graced the January/February 2013 cover of Weight Watchers magazine, showing off her weight loss after the May 1 arrival of her daughter Maxwell.

“I really have to separate myself from the world’s expectations and really just be healthy with myself,” Jessica shared. “I’m not a supermodel. My body is not bouncing back like a supermodel. I’m just your everyday woman.”

And all eyes are on the singer-turned-entrepreneur again. On Christmas Day, Jessica confirmed her second pregnancy by sharing a picture of baby Maxwell with the words “Big Sis” written in the sand in front of her.

Kendra Wilkinson
Former Playboy model Kendra Wilkinson welcomed her first child, son Hank, with football star husband Hank Baskett in December 2009.

The Girls Next Door star opened up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about the media’s focus on her body during the pre-and-postnatal stages.

“The media is the media. They’re going to do what they please. I’m okay with it,” said Kendra of the constant criticism of her weight.

“I had to really look deep into myself and think more about myself,” she added. “I’m a deep thinker and there’s this thing I always think about: what if today, mirrors just went away. What if your reflection just went away? What if I had no pictures of myself? Would I feel great, would I feel pretty? And the answer is: yes I would. The mirror can play tricks on you.”

Pregnant Celebrities Showcase Hollywood’s Maternity Trends

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

This post was written by our friends at Celebrity Baby Scoop

It’s a Hollywood baby boom. And what better way to celebrate high-profile baby bumps than with funky fashions?!

From Kate Middleton’s pretty trends, to Kim Kardashian’s bold statements, to Jenna Dewan-Tatum’s feminine chic fashions, let’s take a look at the top maternity styles from 10 pregnant celebrities.

Kate Middleton
We’ve only caught a few glimpses of Kate Middleton‘s maternity style — but so far, we approve! After leaving the hospital in December, Kate looked chic in a navy coat accessorized with a light blue scarf while holding a bouquet of yellow roses. And last month, we caught our first glimpse of her barely there belly in a gray Max Mara wrap dress. All eyes will be on the Duchess of Cambridge, 31, in the following months as her baby bump continues to grow.

Kristen Bell
From Hollywood glam, to skinny jeans and scarves, to feminine floral dresses, Kristen Bell has dressed to impress during her first pregnancy. At the Golden Globe Awards in January, the House of Lies star, 32, radiated the red carpet in an embellished floor-length Jenny Packham gown.

Holly Madison
Mom-to-be Holly Madison has been hitting the Las Vegas circuit over the past few months. Embracing her growing belly in form fitting dresses, the Playboy model, 33, has been rocking her baby bump on the red carpet.

Malin Akerman
From rocker chic, to maxi dresses and scarves, to red carpet radiant, Malin Akerman has been leading the way in top maternity trends this season. In November, the Rock of Ages actress, 32, wowed in an all-black ensemble while showcasing her barely there baby bump. As her belly has grown, she has embraced the curves with tight dresses and tops. Such a stunning mom-to-be!

Fergie
Black Eyed Peas frontwoman Fergie announced her pregnancy news last month. And since then, all eyes have been on the singer-fashion designer, 37, as she dresses her lovely baby bump. From all black chic, to layers and scarves, to flowing and feminine, the Grammy Award-winning singer is mixing up the maternity trends during her first pregnancy.

Kim Kardashian
She’s received quite a lot of buzz about her maternity style so far! But what else would you expect from the 32-year-old reality star? She wowed in white on the red carpet, she raised eyebrows in high-waisted peplum pants, and she even wore a see-through blouse. We can’t wait to see how the mom-to-be continues to dress her growing baby bump.

Jenna Dewan-Tatum
Mom-to-be Jenna Dewan-Tatum has been dressing her growing belly in maxi dresses, skinny jeans and layers, and glam red carpet gowns. Always adding the perfect denim jacket or accessory, the Step Up star, 32, has been dressing to impress during her first pregnancy.

Jessica Simpson
During her second pregnancy, Jessica Simpson has looked radiant in black fitted outfits, partnered with chic jackets. From a pretty pink blazer, to modern military jackets, the singer-turned-fashion-designer, 32, is keeping things trendy as her baby bump grows.

Busy Philipps
Cougar Town star Busy Philipps has been looking chic in patterned maternity maxi dresses with flats and fitted red carpet gowns during her second pregnancy. Admitting this pregnancy has been “harder” than her first, the actress, 33, is opting for trendy yet comfortable maternity fashions this time around.

Amber Rose
Although she welcomed her first child “The Dash” last month, we’d be remiss not to mention the maternity fashions of Amber Rose. The model mom, 29, embraced her growing baby bump throughout her first pregnancy with form fitting dresses, polka dots, and caps.

Who has the best – and worst – maternity style?

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.
