Safe Haven star Josh Duhamel is one busy daddy-to-be.

The New Year’s Eve actor, 40, opens up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about the “important” disaster relief program, his “excitement” to become a dad, and his lovely wife Fergie, whom he has “no doubt” will “be an amazing mom.”

CBS: Tell us about teaming up with Valspar Paint and Habitat for Humanity for the Valspar Hearts and Hands for Habitat Campaign. What is the campaign all about and why did you get involved?

JD: “I got involved because I believe that the work that Valspar Paint and Habitat for Humanity are doing is really important. I feel especially passionate about this because after my hometown in North Dakota was hit in 2011, I saw firsthand how many families were affected and how many people needed to rebuild.

When I learned about the work that Valspar was doing with Habitat, I just wanted to be involved with the Valspar Hearts and Hands for Habitat campaign. There’s an auction kicking off today on Valspar’s Facebook page where people can bid on canvases that various celebrities put their handprints on. We’ll be auctioning them off and all the proceeds will go to Habitat for Humanity’s Disaster Response programs.”

CBS: Are you excited to become a dad?

JD: “Excitement isn’t even the word. Everybody that I know that has children says it changes their life and that you can’t understand the kind of love you have for a child until you have a kid, and so I’m excited for that.”

CBS: How do you think you’ll be in the delivery room? Do you think you’ll be there every step of the way?

JD: “I plan to unless it happens right now! Just kidding – yes, I plan on being there. I’m taking a lot of time off after the baby’s born. I don’t want to miss anything!”

CBS: What kind of mom do you think Fergie will be?

JD: “She’ll be great. I have no doubt that she’ll be an amazing mom.”

CBS: What’s up next for you?

JD: “I finished a movie this summer called Strings and I’ve got a movie You’re Not You coming out later this year with Hilary Swank, which is really great. And then mostly just focusing the new arrival in about a week; that’s my main focus right now.”

Tori Spelling: “Our Family Is Amazing and Complete”

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013

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

Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott are proud parents of “four amazing miracles” – sons Liam, 6, and Finn, 6 months, and daughters Stella, 4, and Hattie, 1. With two in diapers, things are “definitely chaotic” in the Spelling-McDermott household, but Tori says things have “gotten easier” in recent weeks.

Tori and Dean open up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about teaming up with Habitat for Humanity and the Valspar Color Project. They go on to talk about their newest addition, a “tough little dude,” and their older kids who love to play “caretaker” to baby Finn.

CBS: Tell us about teaming up with Habitat for Humanity and the Valspar Color Project. What is the online video series all about? What will you be showcasing on the series? How can we get involved?

TS: “We’ve partnered with Valspar Color Project to do this amazing transformation in our playroom. We have four, small, little kids and the playroom is really the hub of our home. We spend all our time in that room and the room was really lacking energy. We couldn’t figure out what it was, then we realized it was color. It had drab, beige walls…it was a great space, a great playroom, but it was just missing something.

So, with Color Match through Valspar, we were able to pick our perfect color match and transform our room with Rushing Stream as our new color. It’s great because people can go onto Valspar Paint’s Facebook page and there’s a link and you can actually see our video. They can see how our room is transformed and they can also view an app…the Perfect Color Match App. And, they can do it themselves.

Valspar figured out, with our personalities, our perfect color match. They can take the quiz online, they can paint their room, and they can share their room. If they share their perfect color match, $1 is donated to Habitat for Humanity by Valspar.

So, once again, here are the steps: If they use the app and they pick their perfect color match, all they have to do is share their color match and $1 is donated by Valspar to Habitat for Humanity.”

DM: “It’s super easy!”

CBS: How’s Finn doing? What kind of baby is he?

TS: “Finn’s amazing. He’s 6 months now.”

DM: “He’s growing so fast.”

TS: “He is. It’s so funny, day-by-day you see their personalities coming out more and more. He’s such like a little man – like a tough, little dude. With 3 brothers and sisters running around him all the time, he’s just trying to keep up with them.”

DM: “He wants to get in there so bad.”

TS: “Yes, he loves them. Liam and Stella always want to hold him and we put him on them and he’s just like all over them – kissing their faces and stuff. It’s so cute!”
