Valentine’s Day: Stars Talk Romance

Friday, February 15th, 2013

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

Love is in the air!

In celebration of Valentine’s Day, Celebrity Baby Scoop asked some of our favorite celebrity moms how they keep the romance alive in their relationships. From Brooke Burke-Charvet’s scheduled date nights, to Soleil Moon Frye’s gadget-free time, to Eden Riegel’s Valentine’s Day plans, read about how the stars keep the flame burning.

Sheila Kelley
Author and actress Sheila Kelley is bringing sexy back with a new campaign entitled, Redefining Sexy: Believe In Your Beauty, which aims to redefine the terms “sexy” and “beauty” through a provocative video featuring true stories of real women.

Mom to Ruby, 12, and Gus, 18, with husband, actor Richard Schiff, Sheila opened up about keeping things sexy in her marriage as well.

“My hub-man Richard Schiff and I are madly in love because he lets me be a woman, and I let him be a man,” she said.

“We balance each other and we have this love affair that’s like a dance of masculine and feminine energy,” Sheila added. “It’s divine. We both travel a lot for work and are sometimes apart for months at a time. He’s in New York right now for a role in Glengarry Glen Ross with Al Pacino. So I fly in to see him and we have these very intense romantic weekends at our favorite spots in Manhattan.”

Kearran Giovanni
Actress and mom Kearran Giovanni stars in the new hit TNT drama Major Crimes, the spin-off of the critically acclaimed series The Closer.

The actress — mom to daughters, Jordan, 4, and Peyton, 2, with husband Philip Ambrosino — chatted about keeping the flame burning in their relationship.

“We switch off roles constantly,” she shared. “And we have a set Thursday night date night.”

Rosie Pope
Pregnant in Heels star Rosie Pope and husband Daron Pope are parents to three kids: sons J.R., 4, Wells, 2, and 9-month-old daughter Vivienne.

The maternity concierge dished about keeping the romance alive in their busy household.

“This is going to sound corny but we are still so in love and we love being a family more than anything so even if we are at home, once the kids are in bed, we always make time to sit down together over a glass of wine,” Rosie said. “I think whether it’s a date night or a glass of wine on the couch it’s just about finding that time together.”

Melissa Joan Hart
Sabrina The Teenage Witch alum Melissa Joan Hart and her husband, musician Mark Wilkerson, are parents to three sons: Mason, 7, Brady, 4, and Tucker, 5 months.

The Melissa & Joey star shared how her and her hubby are keeping the romance alive in their busy household.
“We are so in love with our children and family,” MJH said. “It helps our bond grow even stronger!”

Fight Childhood Hunger, One Sip at a Time

Monday, June 11th, 2012

There are about 16 million children in the U.S. who don’t know where their next meal is coming from. And while many of these kids can count on a free or reduced-price meal during the school year through the National School Lunch Program, the summer can be an extra challenging time for families in need of food assistance. That’s why Feeding America, Juicy Juice, and Samantha Harris have teamed up to take part in the Fruit For All Project, which aims to provide up to 35 million pieces of fruit to hungry children and families this summer.

 

Want to get in on the cause? If you regularly buy juice for your family, consider picking Juicy Juice—from now until August 31, the company will provide one piece of fruit to Feeding America’s National Produce Program with each purchase. If, like me, you’re not a big juice-drinking family, you can also help out by playing weekly challenges on Juicy Juice’s website, or by using Juicy Juice to try out some juiced up recipes, like these on Parents.com. It’s a yummy way to support a good cause no matter how you look at it—and I’ll drink to that!

Samantha Harris: My Daughters Have “Completely Different Personalities”

Sunday, May 6th, 2012

Samantha HarrisThis post was written by our friends at Celebrity Baby Scoop.

TV host Samantha Harris loves the “profound” experience of motherhood! The Dancing with the Stars alum took part in Saturday’s March for Babies walk in Los Angeles. A “longtime supporter” of March of Dimes, Samantha says the money raised will “help all moms, including at-risk women, have healthy full-term pregnancies.”

Samantha opens up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about being a “strong advocate for anti-hunger issues” and “empower[ing] women to have healthy, full-term pregnancies.” The mom-of-two also talks about her “completely different” daughters Josselyn, 4, and 15-month-old Hilary, the joys of motherhood, and the possibility of baby No. 3: “Never say never!”

CBS: Tell us about partnering with March of Dimes and their March for Babies walk in LA.

SH: “I’m a longtime supporter of the March of Dimes. Their mission is to empower women to have healthy, full-term pregnancies. They’ve been around for years, and the work they do for women is unprecedented. The March of Dimes raises money to help all moms, including at-risk women, have healthy full-term pregnancies.

The March of Dimes has raised millions of dollars during their March for Babies walks across the country. I’m honored to be part of the Los Angeles walk at Exposition Park this weekend. It’s an amazing event and I’m so excited to host the morning’s opening ceremonies.

There are so many stories of poverty, malnutrition and inadequate healthcare all over the word. And really, all those things also exist right here in our backyards. Many women right here in the USA are giving birth to premature babies. The March of Dimes raises millions of dollars through the March for Babies walks across the U.S. to benefit all babies.

And not to mention, they’re an amazing online resource for women everywhere! There is a ton of information for expectant moms on their site [MarchOfDimes.com].”

CBS: How are Josselyn and Hilary doing? What are they into?

SH: “They are great! Hilary is now 15-months and Josselyn is 4-years-old. They’re both so bright and completely different personalities! Hilary goes head-first into everything – she has no fear! She will jump off everything and just go full-force ahead.

Josselyn is the cautious one and always considers safety first. It’s funny, I thought she was like that because I was an over-protective first-time mom. But then when Hilary came along and showed her daredevil personality at such a young age, I realized it’s just a part of who they both are. I’m constantly amazed as I watch them grow into their own.”

CBS: What are some of your favorite mommy memories with your girls?

SH: “There are so many, so I’ve actually decided to start writing down their special moments into a journal. I plan to give it to them when they’re older. Whether it’s something funny they just said, or a milestone, or a special day we’ve just had, I write it down and post it in their book. I’ve realized I’m not used to handwriting anymore, so I might resort to writing something quickly on my phone or on the computer and printing it off.

I just remember how special it felt to look back at the baby albums my mom made for me, and I want my girls to have that. Of course, my older sister has millions of photos of her every move and there’s barely any pictures of me, so I want to make sure Hilary has something to look back onto [laughs]!”

CBS: What is your favorite part of motherhood?

SH: “I love how my girls use the word ‘love.’ Both of them tell me they love me and it melts my heart. ‘I love you’ was Hilary’s first 3-sentence blurb. I will tell her ‘I love you’ and she replies now with ‘I yuv yu.’ And for Josselyn, ‘love’ was the second word she learned how to spell. The first was her name. Just hearing that word and feeling the unconditional love between us is beyond amazing.”
