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.”

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.”

Celebs’ Childhood Summertime Memories

Friday, June 22nd, 2012

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

With the warm months upon us, CelebrityBabyScoop asked some of our favorite celebrity moms to share their childhood summertime memories.

From Tori Spelling‘s family vacations in Las Vegas, to Jewel‘s horse riding adventures in Alaska, to Denise Richards’ family fun with their furry friends, read through our list of unforgettable family memories.

Jewel:

Soulful singer Jewel welcomed her first child, son Kase, in July 2011 with rodeo star hubby Ty Murray. The new mom opened up about her carefree childhood summertime memories in the great outdoors up in Alaska.

“They’re all outdoors,” she said. “I grew up in Alaska and the outdoors are so beautiful. I don’t think I spent any time inside except to sleep. My memories were horse riding and getting outside.”

Tori Spelling:

Actress-author Tori Spelling and her husband Dean McDermott are parents to three children – son Liam, 5, and daughters Stella, 4, and Hattie, 8 months – with baby No. 4 on the way this September. The “Beverly Hills, 90210″ star opened up about her childhood summer vacations with her family, including her late father, acclaimed TV producer Aaron Spelling, mother Candy Spelling and brother Randy.

“Everyone always asks me if I flew all over the world as a child,” Tori said. “But the truth is, my dad was afraid to fly. So we drove to Vegas for a month every summer! And this was before Vegas was kid-friendly. I really have to hand it to my mom for always finding fun things for us to do in Vegas.”

Sarah Wayne Callies:

Actress Sarah Wayne Callies, spokesperson for the International Rescue Committee‘s Wake Up Campaign, is mom to 5-year-old daughter Keala. The “The Walking Dead” star opened up about her idyllic childhood growing up in Hawaii.

“I lived in Hawaii, so it would have to be the beach,” she said. “We had a fun tradition where we would try to watch the sun rise over the water and then drive to the other side of the island and watch the sun set. My hair was constantly a mess of salt, seaweed, and sand. Gosh, I loved summers and lived for them as a kid. My parents were professors at a university, so they had summers off too. We were constantly outside; I think we went inside just to sleep and to raid the fridge for food to take outside. We would do a lot of kayaking and other fun summer activities. I have a lot of memories of kayaking with my dad and seeing sea turtles all around. Just incredible.”

Nicole Sullivan:

Actress and Jenny Brand Ambassador Nicole Sullivan is mom to sons Dash, 5, and Beckett, 2 1/2 with husband, fellow actor Jason Packham. The ”MADtv” alum opened up about her childhood memories of camping in the summertime.

“Some of my favorite memories growing up are camping with my family and our dog,” Nicole said. “And I still love it!”

Laila Ali:

Former boxer Laila Ali and her husband, football star Curtis Conway, are parents to son C.J., nearly 4, and daughter Sydney, 13 months. The ”Dancing with the Stars” alum said that growing up in a divorced and blended family with boxing legend father, Muhammed Ali, provided endless hours of fun in the sun with her stepsisters.

“As a child, we didn’t go on summer vacations,” Laila shared. “I just remember that my stepsisters would come over and everyone would be there. It was great to have everyone come to the house to go swimming together and pile up in the car together. It was a lot of fun…summers were always family time.”

“I plan to do a lot of swimming and I want to enroll my son in official swimming lessons and get Sydney in the water,” Laila said. “I want to do a lot of outdoor activities, like take them to the beach. We haven’t really done that, because I wanted to wait until my son was old enough. You have to be careful with the kids and sand; I don’t want that situation where my daughter gets sand in her eyes. I want to take my son to the beach and do a lot of swimming, and maybe get him on the back of a bike. A lot of outdoor activities.”

Kimora Lee Simmons:

Kimora Lee Simmons is accustomed to life in the fab lane! The model-entrepreneur is mom to daughters Ming Lee, 12, and Aoki Lee, nearly 10, with ex-husband Russell Simmons.

“This summer, everyone is working,” Kimora said. “I’m launching Shinto Clinical all over the world, Djimon is on-set filming, the girls have summer activities, Kenzo has a little camp he’s going to – but i know we’ll have fun. I honestly wouldn’t mind spending more time around the pool. Maybe grill out…that sounds fab to me!”
