5 Things You Didn’t Know About Jessica Alba

Wednesday, September 10th, 2014

Parents attended a taping of  The Meredith Vieira Show, featuring special guest Jessica Alba. Movie star, entrepreneur and mom of Honor, 6, and Haven, 3, Alba is now a billionaire thanks to her venture The Honest Company. Dissatisfied with the home and baby product options on the shelves when she first became a mom, Alba founded the venture to provide non-toxic, truly organic, eco-friendly products in the baby, bath and body, cleaning, and wellness markets. But the conversation wasn’t all busines. Meredith and Jessica had a ton of fun on set and the audience learned a few things about Alba that they didn’t know before:

1. She loves her 30s. Alba confessed that her teens and her twenties were a time of insecurity. She says that she had a lot of the “normal” worries, but that much self-doubt came from her lack of a college education, which made her feel she wasn’t smart enough. Alba says that becoming a mom and making it over the hump of 30 was when she truly came into her own.

2. She can’t sing. At bedtime, moms will do anything to get little ones to go to sleep. Alba and her husband resort to singing. Well, Honor had a sleepover recently and Alba was going to tear her hair out if the girls didn’t get some zzz’s. So she sang to them. Honor’s friends were mortified because Alba is completely tone deaf (even though Honor never realized it)! Still, we have a feeling that with her acting chops, Alba will be just fine.

3. She has trouble at school drop-off. Alba admitted that just like a lot of moms out there, taking her eldest to school is much harder for her than it is for Honor. Alba misses her daughter during the day, saying that she wishes that during nap time she could just sneak in and cuddle with her.

4. She loves hand-me-downs. Alba is not too good for passing down pre-loved clothes to Haven. In fact, she prefers it. She loves seeing the outfits a second time around and reliving the memories of Honor wearing the same ensemble.

Shopping for your first? Parents has tons of recommendations for cute baby outfits!

5. She’s good at guessing games. This episode of The Meredith Vieira Show pitted Vieira opposite Alba in a guessing game much like “25,000 Pyramid.” Although Vieira’s team won in the end, Alba put up a good fight!

Best Halloween Costumes In Hollywood

Thursday, October 31st, 2013

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

Happy Halloween from Celebrity Baby Scoop!

What better way to celebrate the spook-tacular holiday than by looking at our favorite celebrity kids in their boo-tiful costumes!

From Neil Patrick Harris’ festive family-of-four, to Alyson Hannigan‘s colorful crew, to Tori Spelling‘s foodie-themed fun, let’s take a look at some of the best Halloween costumes in Hollywood.

Neil Patrick Harris

Neil Patrick Harris shared an adorable picture with his twins – son Gideon and daughter Harper – dressed up last Halloween in Wizard of Oz costumes.

“Happy Halloween everyone! Hope your tricking and treating gotcha lotsa booty! Here’s our family costume pic,” NPH posted via Twitter.

We love seeing the Harris-Burtkas’ Halloween costumes!

The year before, the festive family-of-four dressed up in a Peter Pan theme, with NPH going as Captain Hook, David as Peter and their twins as Smee and Tinkerbell.

And not to mention this year’s Alice in Wonderland theme!

“Our costumes for the Halloween carnival at the kids’ preschool yesterday,” NPH posted via Instagram. “But 10/31 will be frighteningly different..! @DavidBurtka came up with both themes/costumes. He’s amazing.”

Sandra Bullock

Gravity star Sandra Bullock and her 3-year-old son Louis attended a Halloween party as skeletons in Studio City, Calif. this year (October 19).

The Oscar winner wore ghoulish face paint and a black and white lace dress with a bone-like corset. To match his mama, the sweet preschooler donned a black and white skeleton jumpsuit with removable wings.

Last Halloween, the adorable mother-son duo dressed up as Jessie and Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story.

Tia Mowry-Hardrict

Instant Mom star Tia Mowry-Hardrict was all smiles with her son Cree, 2, in West Hollywood, Calif. this year (October 13).

Sporting a Superman costume, Cree and his famous mama had a blast picking out the perfect pumpkins at Mr. Bones Pumpkin Patch.

Alyson Hannigan

Alyson Hannigan and husband Alexis Denisof love getting dressed up at Halloween.

The cute couple were seen trick-or-treating with their daughters Satyana and Keeva in Brentwood, Calif. last Halloween Day. The festive family-of-four were a colorful bunch in their seahorse costumes.

The high-profile family love celebrating Halloween. The year prior, they dressed up as a scarecrow couple alongside their sweet daughter Satyana who went as a pumpkin.

And who could forget those fabulous kangaroo costumes when Sati was just a lil’ baby!

Jack Osbourne

“The Princess of Darkness,” proud papa Jack Osbourne captioned a shot of his adorable baby girl.

Dressed up as her 62-year-old rockstar grandfather Ozzy Osbourne, 1-year-old Pearl Osbourne nailed it with a long black wig and purple shades in the hilarious photo.

LeAnn Rimes & Eddie Cibrian

Grease is the word for LeAnn Rimes.

The country singer dressed up as Sandy from the classic movie last Halloween. She posted photos on her Twitter account of herself, husband Eddie Cibrian and stepsons Mason, and Jake.

She wrote: “Family of the Grease days, Indiana Jones and a tribute to our navy seals.”

Alyssa Milano

Who’s the Boss? star Alyssa Milano got into the Halloween spirit with her sweet son Milo last Halloween.

“Happy Halloween from Tinkerbell and Peter Pan,” Alyssa posted via Instagram.

The actress and her baby boy looked like the perfect duo in their Halloween costumes.

Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba and husband Cash Warren got festive with their two daughters, Honor and Haven, last Halloween.

Just days before Halloween Day, the sweet sisters were spotted in matching Incredibles costumes as they headed out with their movie star mom in West Hollywood, Calif.

The Sin City actress didn’t join in on the fun on that occasion, but she did later post a pic to Twitter in the festive spirit!

Tori Spelling

Tori Spelling and husband Dean McDermott are proud parents to four children: Liam, Stella, Hattie and Finn. Last year, the proud mom shared some adorable shots of her costumed cuties.

When he was just one-month-old, her youngest child, son Finn, celebrated his first ever Halloween in adorable fashion, dressing up as a little sushi roll.

The reality star mama seemed to pick a foodie theme for her kids’ costumes last year: she also posted a photo of her then 1-year-old daughter Hattie dressed up as spaghetti and meatballs.

Snooki

Baby first Halloween!

Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi shared a festive photo of her family dressed up in their Halloween costumes last year.

“We got superhero swag. #Lorenzos1stHalloween,” the proud new mom captioned the photo with fiancé Jionni LaValle and their then 2-month-old son Lorenzo.

10 Star Moms-To-Be: Pregnant In Heels

Thursday, August 1st, 2013

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

With swollen feet, extra weight and achy body parts, it’s rare to see pregnant women wearing heels. Snooki pregnant in heels

But some of our favorite high profile moms-to-be could not give up this wardrobe staple throughout their pregnancies. From Kim Kardashian to Kate Middleton to Jessica Alba, let’s take a look at 10 pregnant celebrity moms and their fancy footwear.

Kim Kardashian

Just a month before welcoming her daughter North West, reality star Kim Kardashian stepped out for lunch with her momager Kris Jenner at Stanley’s in Sherman Oaks, Calif. on May 16. Wowing in a white dress, Kim looked lovely, yet swollen, in her heels.

Heels became quite the hot topic while Kim was expecting her first child. After tweeting, “I never thought I would ever say this… But I’m wearing flats today,” Kim was asked to elaborate.

“You know what, they actually hurt my back,” the expectant mom said. “I love high heels … Whatever makes me feel good, I want to wear. And I love wearing heels. I’m trying the flats, but we’ll see.”

Kate Middleton

One month before welcoming son GeorgeKate Middleton made an appearance in Southampton, England, on June 13 to name Princess Cruises’ latest ship, the Royal Princess.

The radiant mum-to-be, 31, walked the blue carpet in a $265 dalmatian print coat by Hobbs, accessorized with a black fascinator and black heels.

Jennifer Love Hewitt

Mom-to-be Jennifer Love Hewitt struck a pregnant pose at Mickey Through the Decades Collection launch celebration at Walt Disney Studio Lot in Burbank, Calif. on July 13.

The Client List star, 34, looked radiant in a gray tank, black skinny jeans and wedge heels.

Rachel Zoe

Reportedly pregnant Rachel Zoe, 41, stepped out with her son Skyler, 2, and husband Rodger Berman in Malibu, Calif. on July 2. After stopping by Desert Sun Nail Salon for a spa treatment, the couple took their tot to Bui Sushi for an early dinner.

The celebrity stylist went boho chic in a black ensemble and wedge heels.

“Being pregnant with Sky was really great actually,” she said. “Maybe the fact that I wore heels until I gave birth. A lot of people made fun of me for it. I was determined!”

Jessica Simpson

One month before giving birth to son AceJessica Simpson and fiancé Eric Johnson were seen arriving at Los Angeles International Airport on May 3. Eric carried their 1-year-old daughter Maxwell while Jessica was all smiles for the nearby paparazzi.

The pregnant singer-turned-fashion-designer, 32, looked airport-chic in a printed maternity dress and black jacket, accessorized with a bright orange Birkin bag and sky-high peep-toed heels.

Megan Fox

Two months before welcoming her son NoahTransformers actress Megan Fox rocked a pair of Jean-Michel Cazabat wedge heels and a black maxi maternity dress alongside husband Brian Austin Green on July 15, 2012. The handsome couple attended church in Los Angeles, Calif. on Green’s 39th birthday with his 10-year-old son Kassius.

Snooki

Two months before welcoming her son Lorenzo, Snooki took a tumble in her heels.

When Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi announced her pregnancy in March 2012, the pint-sized MTV star said, “I’m going to wear heels throughout. I’m 24, not 50!”

But while filming her hit show Jersey Shore in Seaside Heights, New Jersey on June 21, 2012 the expectant mom took a tumble in her platform sandals. Luckily, she wasn’t seriously injured.

“I feel confident in them, and I know I’m not going to fall, so until it feels very uncomfortable, I’m still going to rock them,” Snooki said earlier this month of wearing heels. “I’m only 24 and I’m pregnant — it doesn’t mean I need to be wearing flats and ugly shoes. I can still look good.”

Sarah Michelle Gellar

Three months before welcoming her son RockyBuffy the Vampire Slayer star Sarah Michelle Gellar was photographed with her adorable daughter Charlotte, then 2, in Sherman Oaks, Calif. on June 16, 2012. The expectant mama looked lovely in a white summer dress and brown wedge heels.

Kristin Cavallari

Four months before welcoming son Camden, reality star Kristin Cavallari stopped by the Earth Bar to pick up a couple healthy drinks-to-go in West Hollywood, Calif. on April 11, 2012. The Hills alum was radiant in an orange mini dress and nude heels.

Jessica Alba

One month before welcoming daughter HavenJessica Alba was the picture of pregnant style yesterday as she attended an event at West Hollywood’s Jenni Kayne boutique with her then 3-year-old daughter Honor on July 10, 2011.

Dressed in a black skirt, brightly colored top and wedge heels, the Fantastic Four star seemed in great spirits as she chatted with friends before heading inside.

First Photos: Celebrity Babies Make Their Debut

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013

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

As the world waits for the first images of North West - the newborn daughter of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West - the question remains: to tweet or to make a deal? Everly

With rumors swirling that Kim’s momager Kris Jenner will introduce her granddaughter on her new daytime TV show, to reported offers of up to $2 million for a magazine cover debut, we await the first images of baby KimYe.

Let’s take a look at the big business of releasing the first photos of Tinseltown’s tots.

It’s been a few years since A-list couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt received a whopping $15 million for the first pictures of their now 4-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne. The Jolie-Pitt twins – along with their four other siblings – are now just as famous as their parents.

The debut of celebrity children continues to make headlines. While the demand has not died, many star couples are passing on multi-million

Knox and Vivienne

dollar paychecks for the first glimpse of their tots, and releasing the debut photos via social media.

R&B royalty Jay-Z and Beyoncé unveiled the first photos of their daughter Blue Ivy on Tumblr, just a few weeks after her January 2012 birth.

In June, star couple Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum released the first photo of their newborn daughter Everly via Facebook. Levi

For a long time running, PEOPLE magazine had a monopoly on introductory celebaby photos. But today, many stars are turning to competitors who are doling out generous offerings.

Other high-profile parents are releasing their own photos for free via social media. While some do not debut any photos at all, and are simply caught by the paparazzi, as was the case recently for Sarah Michelle Gellar who was spotted for the first time with 9-month-old son Rocky.

Here’s a list of top 10 most expensive baby photos to date. Max and Emme

  • $15 million – Knox Leon & Vivienne Marcheline (Brad Pitt/Angelina Jolie)
  • $6 million – Max & Emme Muñiz (Jennifer Lopez/Marc Anthony)
  • $4.1 million – Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt (Brad Pitt /Angelina Jolie)
  • $3 million – Levi Alves McConaughey (Matthew McConaughey/Camila Alves)
  • $2 million – Dannielynn Birkhead (Anna Nicole Smith/Larry Birkhead)
  • $2 million – Pax Thien Jolie-Pitt (Angelina Jolie/Brad Pitt)
  • $1.5 million – Max Liron Bratman (Christina Aguilera/Jordan Bratman)
  • $1.5 million – Honor Marie Warren (Jessica Alba/Cash Warren)
  • $1 million – Harlow Winter Kate Madden (Nicole Richie/Joel Madden)
  • $1 million – Maddie Briann Aldridge (Jamie Lynn Spears/Casey Aldridge)

Honorable mention: Sean Preston Federline (Britney Spears/Kevin Federline) $500,000

Unknown amount: Louis Bardo Bullock (Sandra Bullock)

Earth Day in Hollywood: Celebrity Families Go Green

Thursday, April 11th, 2013

Celebrities Earth DayThis post was written by our friends at Celebrity Baby Scoop.

Hollywood is going green! On April 22, more than one billion people around the globe will participate in Earth Day. In celebration, let’s take a look at eco-friendly celebrities like Jessica Alba, Mario Lopez, and Tori Spelling who inspire others to protect Mother Nature.

Tori Spelling
Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott are proud parents of four kids: sons Liam, 6, and Finn, 6 months, and daughters Stella, 4, and Hattie, 1.

The reality TV mama recently opened up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about going green “every day,” not just one day out of the year.

“Every day is Earth Day in our house,” Spelling said. “We definitely try to teach our kids to take care of the earth. Just the other day, actually, in fact it was in the playroom, Liam came up and said I turned off the lights in the playroom because I don’t want the earth to get sick. It was really cute.”

She added: “We teach all about recycling, we compost. We try our best to teach them how to take care of the earth.”

Jessica Alba
From her chic sense of style, to her hands-on playdates at the park, to her eco-friendly business, we can’t get enough of Jessica Alba. After creating The Honest Company last year, the mom-of-two is now promoting her debut book, The Honest Life.

“It’s a colorful how-to guidebook for people who want to make a healthy and non-toxic home without giving up the fun fashionable things,” Jessica told Celebrity Baby Scoop. “I hope people will be inspired to make the ideas their own and find what works for them.”

She went on to talk about modeling an eco-friendly lifestyle with husband Cash Warren and their two daughter Honor, 4, and Haven, 1.

“First and foremost, we try to model and practice eco-friendly habits for the girls,” Alba said. “Otherwise, we talk to them about being mindful and explain that things can be turned into something else one day. This can be as simple as teaching them about recyclables and showing how to sort bottles and cans from trash.”

She added: “We also do a lot of DIY crafts like using cardboard boxes to make airplanes and dollhouses—our creative playtime together similarly shows the girls about repurposing old items.”

The Sin City star says involving kids in the process is not only fun, but educational.

“Involving children in gardening and cooking is another great way to inspire eco-friendly living,” Alba shared. “Caring for the plants in our herb wall garden helps Honor understand the steps to growing food (including patience!), how it ultimately lands on her plate, and about being a good steward of the planet.”

The proud mom added: “Honor is also a great sous chef when we’re in the kitchen, so being a part of the dinner process encourages her to eat the foods she grows and develops her taste for fresh ingredients. Hopefully, this lays the foundation for children to prioritize their health and that of the planet.”

Jessica Alba on Practicing Eco-Friendly Habits With Her Daughters

Thursday, January 24th, 2013

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

Honestly, she’s one of our favorite celebrity moms. From her chic sense of style, to her hands-on playdates at the park, to her eco-friendly business, we can’t get enough of Jessica Alba. After creating The Honest Company last year, the mom-of-two is now joining forces with zulily to share her safe and sustainable products with a new audience.

Jessica opens up to CelebrityBabyScoop about her daughters Honor, 4, and Haven, 1, who “like to play, explore, get messy, and are creative.” She goes on to talk about modeling eco-friendly habits for the girls, her book that will hit shelves in March, and her upcoming film that she can’t wait to take Honor and her friends to see.

CBS: We hear The Honest Company has joined forces with zulily. Tell us all about the new partnership.
JA: The Honest Company and zulily both believe in simplifying families’ busy lives by bringing them affordable, stylish, and trusted products every day. Our companies also support using business for social good and are committed to giving back to families in need. So, I knew working together would be a great extension of our Honest mission.

Because zulily is about helping moms discover new brands and products, we’re excited to reach this new audience, share our safe and effective eco-friendly products with them, and grow our communities together.

CBS: How are your daughters doing? What are they into these days? What do they do to make you laugh?
JA: Every day with my girls is a dream and just hanging out with them is the best thing ever. They’re happy and healthy 1- and 4-year-olds who like to play, explore, get messy, and are creative. And since they’re typical kiddos, they’re bound to make me laugh.

CBS: What are some of the ways you get your girls to be eco-friendly? What are some tips in teaching our kids to love our environment?
JA: First and foremost, we try to model and practice eco-friendly habits for the girls. Otherwise, we talk to them about being mindful and explain that things can be turned into something else one day. This can be as simple as teaching them about recyclables and showing how to sort bottles and cans from trash.

We also do a lot of DIY crafts like using cardboard boxes to make airplanes and dollhouses—our creative playtime together similarly shows the girls about repurposing old items.

Involving children in gardening and cooking is another great way to inspire eco-friendly living. Caring for the plants in our herb wall garden helps Honor understand the steps to growing food (including patience!), how it ultimately lands on her plate, and about being a good steward of the planet.

Honor is also a great sous chef when we’re in the kitchen, so being a part of the dinner process encourages her to eat the foods she grows and develops her taste for fresh ingredients. Hopefully, this lays the foundation for children to prioritize their health and that of the planet.

CBS: What’s up next for you?
JA: I’m very excited to publish my first book The Honest Life this March! It’s a colorful how-to guidebook for people who want to make a healthy and non-toxic home without giving up the fun fashionable things. I hope people will be inspired to make the ideas their own and find what works for them.

Also, I’m looking forward to taking Honor and her friends to see my upcoming animated film Escape from Planet Earth because it’s really a sweet story. I had a lot of fun working on this film—it was great to play the nemesis since I don’t often get to play that role.

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.

So many lovely gowns and pretty parents! Do you have a favorite?
