5 Celebrity Grandparents: The Joys of Generations

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013

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

Let’s hear it for Grandma and Grandpa!

In celebration of National Grandparent’s Day on September 8, we’re taking a look at five famous grandparents and their joys of watching the generations grow. 

Garth Brooks

Country crooner Garth Brooks recently entered the grandparents club this summer when his middle daughter, 19-year-old August Anna Brooks and boyfriend Chance Michael Russell, welcomed their first child – a girl named Karalynn.

Grandpa Garth, 51, has since issued a statement since his first grandchild’s birth:

“Our family would first like to thank everyone for their warm wishes and sweet celebration of Baby K’s arrival,” he said. “Our children’s lives have always been extremely private and they have been endlessly encouraged to be their own people. We have always wanted them to be individuals and NOT be known as ‘someone’s daughters.’”

He added: “I have been amazed and grateful how the press has always respected this. I now ask that respect to please continue as this young family begins the greatest days of their lives.”

Goldie Hawn

Legendary actress Goldie Hawn, 67, and her ex-husband Bill Hudson have two grown children and five grandchildren.

After the recent birth of her fifth grandchild – her only granddaughter – the Academy Award-winning actress announced the joyous addition to her growing family.

“Welcome Rio! Our first baby girl to join our family!” Goldie proudly tweeted. “Oliver and Erinn thank you for bringing so much JOY to our lives! #happiness.”

According to the Private Benjamin star, being a grandmother is “Love with a capital L!”

“[I hope to teach them] to become as resilient as they can,” she added. “We all get knocked down, but the measure of the man is how fast you get up. And I think that’s what I’d really like to instill in the kids. We’re all going to fail, we’re all going to mess up, but it’s not as much about that as it is learning from your mistakes and getting up real fast.”

Alana Stewart

Alana Stewart and her rocker ex-husband Rod Stewart have two grown children: daughter Kimberly Stewart and son Sean. Kimberly and Academy Award-winning actor Benicio del Toro are proud co-parents of daughter Delilah, who turns 2 in August.

Alana, 68, recently talked to Celebrity Baby Scoop about the joys of being a “Nana” and her “strong-willed” granddaughter.

“I just spent most of the weekend with Kimberly, my daughter, helping her with Delilah,” Alana said. “She’s been a full-time mother 24/7 and by the weekend she really needs Nana (that would be me!) to give her a break now and then.”

She added: “Delilah is a barrel of energy. She’s just adorable and quite a little character. She’s very strong-willed, stubborn, and doesn’t like to take “no” for an answer. I guess you could say it runs in the family.”

Ron Howard

Legendary filmmaker Ron Howard and his high school sweetheart, Cheryl, have been married for 38 years. They are proud parents to four grown children and two grandchildren.

The Happy Days alum, 59, opened up about the “profound” experience of being a grandfather.

“My daughter Bryce has a son … and I love being with him,” Ron gushed. “I didn’t remotely understand how profound the experience of being a grandparent is until you become one. It’s interesting, when you become a grandparent you start bumping into other folks who have had that experience. And there’s this sort of wink and a nod like it’s sort of a club or something.”

Blythe Danner

With both Emmy and Tony awards to her name, Blythe Danner has played many memorable parts over the years. But it sounds as though her favorite role to date just might be that of doting grandmother.

The Meet the Fockers star, 70, said she loves the time she spends with her daughter Gwyneth Paltrow‘s kids Apple and Moses.

“I don’t feel like a grandmother with them,” she gushed. “I get on my hands and knees and act like a complete fool! We have a lot of fun together.”

And it sounds like she’d love the whole family – including famous son-in-law, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin - to live a little closer.

“I would love them next door, banging away on the drums, and Chris writing new songs,” she added.

Can Women Really Have It All? Celebrity Moms Sound Off

Wednesday, April 17th, 2013

Gwyneth Paltrow and KidsThis post was written by our friends at Celebrity Baby Scoop.

This is a question all moms struggle with: Can we really have it all? We got the scoop from Hollywood moms.

New mom Drew Barrymore recently opened up about the illusion of having a ‘perfect’ life. When asked how she does it all, she replied: “I can’t and I don’t.”

She added: “It sucks when you’ve worked really hard for certain things and you have to give them up because you know that you’re going to miss out on your child’s upbringing, or you realize that your relationship has suffered.”

Being a new mom to 6-month-old daughter Olive — her first child with husband Will Kopelman — Drew has had to take a break from directing.

“I can’t direct right now because I would miss out on my daughter,” she explained. “It was heartbreaking to let it go, but it was a clear choice.”

“I was raised in that generation of women can have it all, and I don’t think you can,” she added. “I think some things fall off the table. The good news is, what does stay on the table becomes much more in focus and much more important.”

Let’s hear from some of our favorite celebrity moms on the concept of having it all. Is it really possible?

Katie Couric:
Celebrity Baby Scoop caught up with Katie Couric at BlogHer in New York City last summer. “My daughters are my best accomplishment,” the proud mom said.

At the conference, the successful broadcast journalist went on to say that women can have it all…with the help of many people, including nannies, and so on.

Isla Fisher:
Wedding Crashers actress Isla Fisher and her husband, Borat star Sacha Baron Cohen, are parents to daughters Olive, 5, and Elula, 2. The Confessions of a Shopaholic star recently opened up about the illusion of having it all.

“You can’t ‘have it all – it’s a total myth,” Isla said. “Whatever you are lucky enough to get should be fabulous enough. I have never met anyone with the perfect career and the perfect family life. Something always has to suffer.”

Gwyneth Paltrow:
Academy Award-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow seems to have it all! With a successful marriage to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin and their two gorgeous kids – daughter Apple, 8, and son Moses, 6 – it seems life is perfect for the famous actress.

But don’t be so quick to judge. Gwyneth recently talked about the myth of a perfect-looking life.

“You can’t have it all,” Gwyneth said. “I don’t care what it looks like…. I look for an interesting supporting part about once a year. That’s the most I can manage. Some women can do it and that’s fantastic, but I can’t.”

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.”

Spitting Image: Celebrities and Their Little Lookalikes

Thursday, September 13th, 2012

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

Who are some of the closest lookalike mother-daughter duos in Hollywood? What about father-son, or father-daughter, or even mother-son pairs?

Celebrity Baby Scoop takes a look at 15 celebrities and their spitting images. From Reese Witherspoon and daughter Ava, to the late Heath Ledger and daughter Matilda, to Gwyneth Paltrow and daughter Apple, here’s a look at Tinseltown’s mini-me’s.

1. Reese Witherspoon and her 13-year-old daughter Ava might be the closest lookalike pair in Hollywood! Reese and her 8-year-old son Deacon also look similar, but we think he looks more like papa Ryan Phillippe. No?

2. Cindy Crawford and her 11-year-old daughter Kaia are a close second to Reese and Ava. This gorgeous mother-daughter duo are spotted all over Los Angeles in their funky duds. Not to mention, Kaia’s 13-year-old brother Presley and dad Rande Gerber are just as beautiful.

3. Gwyneth Paltrow‘s daughter is the apple of her eye! There’s no doubt about it, Apple, 8, looks just like her mama. Gwyneth and her husband Chris Martin are also parents to 6-year-old son Moses, another close lookalike for the stunning actress.

4. Tina Fey has a mini-me: her 7-year-old daughter Alice! Tina and her longtime love, husband Jeff Richmond, are also parents to 1-year-old daughter Penelope. We hope to see more of Tina’s baby to see if she is also looks like her hilarious mama.

5. Julianne Moore and her 10-year-old daughter Liv are one of the cutest mother-daughter duos in Hollywood! We love this redheaded pair who look so much alike. Julianne and her husband Bart Freundlich are also parents to 14-year-old son Cal — not so much of a resemblance there!

6. Adam Sandler and his 6-year-old daughter Sadie look so much alike that she was cast to play his young identical twin sister in his movie Jack and Jill! Adam and his wife Jackie are also parents to 3-year-old daughter Sunny, who also resembles her funny dad.

7. Mark Consuelos and his 15-year-old son Michael have often been called one of the closest father-son lookalikes in Hollywood. Mark and his lovely wife Kelly Ripa are also parents to daughter Lola, 11, and son Joaquin, 9, but we don’t see the strong resemblance with the younger two. Do you?

8. Teri Hatcher and her 14-year-old daughter Emerson are such a pretty pair! The lookalike mother-daughter duo seem like the best of friends and are often seen out lunching and shopping together. Emerson is Teri’s only child, whom she had with ex-husband Jon Tenney.

9. Heidi Klum and her 8-year-old daughter Leni are blonde beauties! Often seen at the playground, out for lunch, or just strolling in SoHo, Heidi’s oldest child is definitely her mini-me. Heidi and estranged husband Seal are also parents to sons Henry, 6, Johan, 5, and 2-year-old daughter Lou.

10. Angelina Jolie seems to have passed down her luscious lips and overall stunning good looks to her 4-year-old daughter Vivienne. There’s no question that her other biological children – Vivienne’s twin Knox and 6-year-old daughter Shiloh – also look like her, but we think the strongest resemblance is with Vivi. No?

11. Jennifer Garner finally got her boy, and we think he’s the spitting image of mama! Baby Samuel, 6 months, seems to have Jen’s beautiful eyes. While big sisters Violet, 6, and Seraphina, 3, also look like mom, we think Jen’s boy looks most like her.

12. Heath Ledger died too soon at the age of 28. But before his tragic passing, he welcomed a daughter, Matilda, with actress Michelle Williams. Now nearly 7, Matilda is the spitting image of her late father. May his memory live on in her beautiful smile.

13. Britney Spears‘ boys – Sean Preston, 7, and Jayden James, 6 – are both little lookalikes to their gorgeous mama! It seems the boys have gotten their mother’s good genes, making them some of the cutest celebrity kids around. The boys’ father is Brit’s ex-husband, former backup dance Kevin Federline.

14. Uma Thurman‘s 14-year-old daughter Maya could play her younger self in a movie! We recently spotted the pretty pair out with Uma’s newborn daughter and we couldn’t help but notice the striking resemblance. Uma and her ex-husband Ethan Hawke are also parents to 10-year-old son Levon.

15. Kris Jenner and her infamous daughter Kim Kardashian, 31, are one of the most photographed lookalike duos in Hollywood. The mother-daughter team not only look like each other, they spend countless hours working together on their reality TV show and many other endeavors. Kris’ five other children also share a strong resemblance with the famous matriarch.
