Megan Fox: “I love something so much that I will never be the same again.”

Thursday, June 19th, 2014

In anticipation of this summer’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles live-action movie, we caught up with actress and new mom (again!) Megan Fox. While many may recognize her of Transformers fame, her favorite role is mother of two boys under the age of two. Parents talked with Megan about the challenges and joys of parenthood, her rules about TV (unexpected for an actress!), and what she looks forward to as Noah, almost 2, and Bodhi, 4 months, continue to grow.

P: Now that you’re a mom, how does that affect how you pick your projects?

MF: The main thing it does is it affects how much I’m willing to work. I’ve never been an extraordinarily ambitious girl or career-oriented, but especially once I got pregnant with my first son and now [having] my second, it’s so hard to be a working mom especially when your heart is not in your work, when your heart is with your family. I have to make one movie a year because I have to invest in their future and I have to be able to pay their way through college and be able to provide for them. I’m looking for movies that will shoot in Los Angeles, for projects where I’m part of an ensemble so I can shoot in and out in 10-20 days. It’s all about trying to spend as little time away from my kids as possible.

P: What is it like having two kids under 2? What’s the most enjoyable part and most challenging part?

MF: It’s total chaos obviously. Before you have kids you really do not understand how much work it is and how consuming it is. And then you have one and you’re like, “Oh my God my baby is my whole world.” Every moment of the day is dedicated to this one baby and then all of a sudden you have two babies! Their needs are so different because Noah is nearing 2 and then my newborn is 4 months. It’s really hard to manage because I also don’t let them watch TV. It’s not like I’m going to sit Noah in front of the television so I can take care of Bodhi. I have to figure out how to incorporate Noah into the process and have him help me take care of Bodhi and make sure he doesn’t get jealous and make sure nobody’s neglected and everybody’s needs are being met. As a mom it’s hard because I don’t feel like I’m ever giving either one of them 100% of my attention or 100% of myself, so I carry a lot of guilt. Do they each understand how special they are and how much I love them? And are they understanding that they’re unique? It’s hard to make each one feel like an individual when you have to raise them together and manage them together all of the time. So that’s the most difficult part.

The most amazing part of it aside from being blessed to just continue to have children: Noah’s starting to interact with Bodhi. He’ll try to comfort him sometimes when he cries and he’ll do the “sh sh sh sh” and to watch him do that melts my heart. I’m excited for the future, to see them be brothers and be best friends and I know that there’s gonna be lots of fighting, but there’s also gonna be lots of hugs and kisses. It’s sort of mind-blowing to think about how amazing the future is going to be with them, holidays and birthdays.

P: When did you first have that “I’m a mom” feeling? 

MF: I was really connected during my first pregnancy. But even during my pregnancy I had no idea how worried I was going to be for the rest of my life. From the moment I gave birth to Noah, that was the first time I was like, “I love something so much that I will never be the same again.” I will never be relaxed again because I will always be worried about him and hoping that he is ok and safe and happy.

P: You said you don’t let the kids watch TV. When is the age range that you will let them? 

MF: I do let them watch movies, I just don’t let them watch TV. With movies I feel like there’s a beginning, a middle and an end. It’s linear. There’s a clear story. I think that it’s different than just putting a kid in front of the television, because it’s just nonstop. They’re just being bombarded with all of this sort of live media and it’s very overwhelming and it’s too stimulating I think for anyone. I don’t watch television because it’s just too much it overwhelms me. I just can’t deal with it. But I do let them watch movies. Movies are so nostalgic and they can remind us of these amazing times in our childhood. I remember going to the theater to see movies with my dad or my mom and those are special moments for me. One day they’re gonna watch television. I can’t keep it from them forever. My intention is to keep it away as long as possible or to introduce it through Apple TV so they’re not being exposed to the commercials constantly. My goal is no computers, no cell phones until at least 8th grade.

P: Tell us about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. How was it filming while pregnant?

MF: I constantly had a big box of saltine crackers with me wherever I went. So in between takes I would scurry away and shove a bunch of saltines in my mouth to keep me from being nauseous.

P: Your character, April, is a confident woman, and you yourself are also very strong. Do you have any confidence tips for young girls?

MF: You know it’s hard growing up. I’ve always been someone who’s been really assertive and willful and that’s just something I was born with, but I had to learn how to temper that and focus it in the correct direction because it was sort of becoming a detriment. I wasn’t using it correctly. You have to trust yourself. The idea of being really intuitive and listening to your own conscious and listening to—I’m sort of a spiritual hippy so I don’t want to be off-putting but—you gotta listen to your higher self and trust that you know what is right. Be prepared to maybe lose friends or lose relationships. Be prepared to maybe make some people upset and that’s ok as long as you’re pursuing what you really believe is right and correct and true.

Have a Movie Marathon with These Films About Pregnancy

Monday, May 12th, 2014

It’s no secret that pregnancy (like most things) is nothing like the movies. But if your due date’s approaching and you’re looking to commiserate, cue up these films.

The Back-up Plan (2010): The story of a sperm donation and unexpected love intertwine in this rom-com starring Jennifer Lopez.

Father of the Bride, Part II (1995): You probably watched this classic while growing up, but nothing can beat a good Steve Martin movie, especially one featuring the hilarious wedding planner (turned baby shower organizer!) Franck. Plus, how many people do you know who were pregnant at the same time as their mother?!

Friends with Kids (2011): As you’d have guessed from its title, this modern take on parenting follows the story of two pals who decide to procreate. Fans of SNL and Bridesmaids will be happy to see that Maya Rudolph plays a supporting role. This is a film your hubs will enjoy, too (can you say Megan Fox?).

Knocked Up (2007): Katherine Heigl’s pregnancy gets a little up close and personal, but if you’re a fan of This is 40, you’ll enjoy watching what some consider its semi-prequel. Heads up: It’s a bit raunchy!

The Switch (2010): This funny film with a similar plotline to The Back-Up Plan features our other favorite Jennifer (Aniston) and chronicles the story of sperm donating gone wrong–or ultimately, right!

What to Expect When You’re Expecting (2012): This movie tells the story of series of couples all expecting at the same time–think, He’s Just Not That Into You, but about pregnancy. Oh, and they all happen to be played by actors and actresses you know and love: Cameron Diaz, JLo, Matthew Morrison, Anna Kendrick, Chace Crawford, and so on.

Do you have any other favorite movies featuring preggos? Let us know in the comments! And if you prefer older movies, check out these suggestions.

7 Celebrity Pregnancy Confessions

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

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

While pregnancy can be a joyous time, it can also present some odd symptoms and fears.

From Jenna Dewan-Tatum‘s hormonal dreams, to Kim Kardashian‘s wacky food cravings, to Kristin Cavallari‘s delivery dilemma, let’s hear from 7 celebrity moms and their pregnancy confessions.

Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian and boyfriend Kanye West welcomed their first child – daughter North West – on June 15. The first-time mom admitted that pregnancy wasn’t exactly a walk in the park.

“Being pregnant is not as easy as my sister [Kourtney Kardashian] made it look or as my mom [Kris Jenner] has made it look,” she admitted.

As for her pregnancy cravings? “I’m craving carrots and ranch dressing,” she said. “I used to love sweets, I used to love chocolate, can’t even eat chocolate!”

Jenna Dewan-Tatum

Handsome couple Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Channing Tatum welcomed their first child – daughter Everly – on May 31. During her pregnancy, Jenna shared a wacky pregnancy dream.

“OK my fellow preggars ladies.. about these hormonal dreams,” she posted via Twitter. “Is it normal to fly on a magic carpet while presenting at Golden Globes?? Lol.”

Kristin Cavallari

Kristin Cavallari‘s birth plan didn’t exactly go as she had hoped when it was time to deliver Camden, her first child with Jay Cutler.

“[Childbirth] hurt like a bitch and felt like period cramps, but 10 times worse,” Kristin said.

And when it came time to deliver her son, she didn’t want her football star hubby to see the birth. “I was like, ‘You’re going to be behind me. You’re not going to see anything,’” she said. “And the nurse was like, ‘Oh, no, no. He’s going to hold your leg. I was like, ‘Oh, no he’s not.’ She was like, ‘It’s different when it’s your own.’”

Snooki

In her signature quirky style, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi gave graphic details of her son Lorenzo’s August 2012 birth.

“When my water broke, I thought it would be like [gushing],” she shared.

Snooki added: “But I was just like, peeing my pants every two seconds. I didn’t know what was going on! I couldn’t control it, and I was like ‘I think my water broke.’ I was in labor for 27 hours, but I didn’t feel anything because I got the epidural.”

Jessica Simpson

New mom-of-two Jessica Simpson accidentally revealed the gender of her second baby – son Ace Knute – in March 2013.

“The crazy thing is I never knew a wiener could make me nauseous,” Jessica quipped.

She added: “It’s a totally different pregnancy. I just feel awful, I’ve been vomiting,” said Jessica, also mom to 16-month-old daughter Maxwell with fiancé Eric Johnson.

Kristen Bell

Star couple Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard welcomed their first child – daughter Lincoln – on March 28.

“I’ve got nothing to prove” by giving birth naturally, she joked in January. “I feel like, when I arrive at the hospital, I want a glass of whiskey, I want the epidural in my back and I want to get hit in the face with a baseball bat and wake me up when it’s over because I’ve seen the videos—and it looks terrifying.”

That being said, she loved pregnancy and said her “self-esteem has never been higher.”

“I look in the mirror and I think it’s the reverse body dysmorphia,” she added, “because I can understand what my shape is, but I see Brooke Shields. And it doesn’t make a lick of sense, but it’s something that the baby’s giving me hormonally makes me feel really giggly and happy.”

Megan Fox

This is 40 star Megan Fox opened up about giving birth naturally to her son Noah Shannon.

“I was screaming for an epidural when Brian was driving me to the hospital because my water broke on its own,” the actress said of Noah’s September 27 birth“It was level orange alert pain.”

With husband Brian Austin Green by her side, Megan (currently pregnant with the couple’s second child) said the pain was “horrific.”

“It hurts so bad,” she shared. “It was so intense. And I thought I was gonna be really tough and make it, I was gonna labor to like 8 cm . . . but the first contraction that I got was horrific!”

And it sounds like the pain left no time for beautifying pre-birth.

“I had wet hair so I was trying to blow dry my hair before I went to the hospital,” she laughed. “I didn’t want to go to the hospital with wet hair!”

5 Back-to-Back Babies in Hollywood

Wednesday, September 11th, 2013

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

They enjoyed pregnancy so much, they did it again – quickly!

We’re taking a look at Hollywood’s back-to-back baby boom. From Megan Fox, to Britney Spears, to Jessica Simpson,  see which star moms are making their kids close in age. 

Megan Fox

Handsome couple Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green welcomed their first child, son Noah, on September 27, 2012.

Less than one year later (in August 2013), they announced their second pregnancy.

Brian recently admitted he’s not sure how they’ll manage juggling a toddler, a new baby, and his job on Anger Management.

“We honestly have no idea and we discuss it daily and think, ‘How are we going to do this?’” he admitted. “I think we’ll see when it happens. People do it all the time.”

But it sounds like his boss, Charlie Sheen, is more than understanding.

“I couldn’t really ask for a better situation than that,” Brian, also dad to 11-year-old son Kassius, said. “[Charlie's] one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met and worked with.”

Britney Spears

Oops, she did it again!

Pop superstar Britney Spears and ex-husband Kevin Federline welcomed their two sons one year apart — almost to the day.

The couple’s firstborn son, Sean Preston, was born on September 14, 2005, and their second son, Jayden James, arrived on September 12, 2006.

Reportedly, Britney wanted to schedule her second C-section birth to coincide with Sean Preston’s birthday, but her then-husband persuaded her to move the date back a couple days.

Tori Spelling

Currently, Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott have two 1-year-olds — and they’re not twins!

One month after their third child, daughter Hattie, was born, Tori got the unexpected news that she was pregnant for the fourth time.

“The new baby was clearly unplanned but I am thrilled and I would have lots of babies if I could, I love being a mom,” Tori said at the time of her fourth pregnancy.

“All my friends keep asking me [if it was planned] and I’m like, ‘Seriously? Hattie was one month old. Do you think it was planned?’” she continued. “I was up all night with feedings.”

“The doctor said, ‘Wait six weeks [to have sex],’ and Dean was like, ‘They tell everyone that.’ We didn’t wait that long with Stella or Liam,” Tori added. “I was like, ‘Well, I don’t want him to think that the sex is going downhill,’ so now we’re on baby No. 4.”

Son Finn arrived on August 30, 2012, while Hattie was born on October 10, 2011.

Jessica Simpson

Just seven months after Jessica Simpson welcomed her first child, daughter Maxwell, in May 2012, she and fiancé Eric Johnson confirmed that baby No. 2 was on the way.

“Pregnancy is a lot,” Jessica recently shared. “It was hard to do two so close together. I have this huge sense of accomplishment, and I feel in my heart that I’m done. But obviously, accidents do happen!”

Son Ace Knute was born on June 30, 2013, and Maxwell arrived on May 1, 2012.

Naomi Watts

Naomi Watts and her partner Liev Schreiber welcomed their two sons within 17 months of each other.

The couple’s first son, AlexanderSashaPete, was born on July 25, 2007, and their second son, SamuelKai,” arrived on December 13, 2008.

“I suppose I might consider having another child — if someone could guarantee me it would be a girl,” Naomi said.

“Two boys can be a lot to handle and sometimes you think it would be easier with two girls playing with their tea sets and dolls,” she added. “But Liev loves having two boys.”

Did you have your kids back-to-back as well?

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.

Did you wear heels during and/or throughout your pregnancy?

Reality stars Giuliana Rancic and Bill Rancic welcomed their first child, son Duke, on August 30. 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 spoke to Celebrity Baby Scoop about her hopes for her first Mother’s Day.

“I hope my boyfriend [Pasquale Rotella] 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.”

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

There’s no question Hollywood had a baby boom in 2012. And in celebration, we’re taking a look at the best maternity fashion trends of this last year.

1. Sarah Michelle Gellar

Our readers love Sarah Michelle Gellar! Not only is she one of our favorite celebrity moms year-after-year, we can’t get enough of her fabulous fashions. And when she is dressing a baby bump, we all watch with admiration.

Before welcoming her son Rocky in September, SMG led the way in maternity trends this year. From going casual in skinny jeans and tees, to leggy floral prints and layers, we couldn’t get enough of Buffy’s maternity trends.

2. Reese Witherspoon

New mom-of-three Reese Witherspoon was simply radiant with breezy summer dresses throughout her third pregnancy.

Before welcoming son Tennessee in September, Reese delighted us with her stylish maternity duds. From polka dots, to stripes, to solid colors, the Oscar-winner often opted for above-the-knee dresses, flat sandals, and layered necklaces throughout her pregnancy. We loved it!

3. Kourtney Kardashian

From casual chic to red carpet ready, Kourtney Kardashian sure knows how to make pregnancy look good!

Before welcoming her second child – daughter Penelope – in July, the reality TV starlet was the queen of polished pregnancy looks. Whether it was at the latest Hollywood event or at the local farmer’s market, the reality TV mama did not disappoint. For her everyday maternity style, Kourt kept things casual chic in fitted duds showcasing her burgeoning belly, paired with the latest trends such as oversized handbags, fedoras, and blazers.

4. Kristin Cavallari

The Hills alum Kristin Cavallari was one of those lucky women who was ‘all belly’ during pregnancy.

And she dressed that bump beautifully while expecting her first child – son Camden who was born in August. From feminine flowing maxi dresses, to mini maternity looks, to skinny jeans and form-fitted tops, we could not get enough of Kristin’s maternity style.

5. Camila Alves
