Nick Lachey: Camden Has Given Me Great Perspective And Patience

Wednesday, December 4th, 2013

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

Multi-platinum recording artist and TV personality Nick Lachey is gearing up for the fourth season of NBC’s The Sing-Off, which premieres December 9th at 9:00pm ET/PT. The crooner and father-of-one, to son Camden, 1, is also currently enjoying a “great response” to his latest album, A Father’s Lullaby.

Nick opens up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about what it is like to host The Sing-Off, why A Father’s Lullaby “was a really appropriate project” for his fan-base, and how it is a “very sweet, tender, and personal moment” when he puts Camden down to sleep. He also reveals that he is working on another album!

CBS: Are you excited about the new season of The Sing-Off?  How has the show changed or evolved in your opinion?

NL: “I am very excited about it! I am ecstatic that it’s coming back. We’ve already taped all of the episodes, so I can say 100% honestly that it is a great season with a great line-up and fantastic groups. It’s such a fun show, especially around the holidays. It is an awesome show to be a part of, because I am such big fan of a cappella music myself and I know there are so many others out there who love a cappella music. It’s a really energizing show. It’s a great atmosphere, as you’re around so many people who love what they do and love singing.

In regard to how the show has evolved, I think the talent of the groups has gotten better each and every season. I think that it is, in part, attributed to the success of the show; other a cappella groups out there are seeing the show and the success of groups like Pentatonix, who are touring Europe right now and have gone on to do big things. When the show is done well, I think it becomes easier for producers to find great talent out there. I think the evolution of the talent is the biggest thing. Also, we have our first-ever country group in the show this next season, so I think the style of a cappella has evolved a little as well, which is exciting. It’s gotten bigger and better every season, and season four is no exception.” 

CBS: Are you good at predicting who will be successful and who will not? What are some of the indicators?

NL: “I am pretty hit or miss. [laughs] In the second season, I picked a group that was eliminated in the first episode. I was not good in that season, but I did pick Pentatonix in season three and I also successfully picked the season four winners as well. I can’t say who they are right now, but I guess I am two for three. [laughs]

The indicators are groups that have a great sound and chemistry right out of the gate. Really, the point of the show is to help these groups evolve. It is hard to tell sometimes, because a group that you think doesn’t have great chemistry could really discover that chemistry as they go through the process of the show. It’s kind of tough to tell, but you can get a feel of the groups that have an unmistakable chemistry and blend. When you find that and hone into it, it’s tough to beat. I always look to the groups who seem like they have multiple voices singing as one voice. If you can hear that and find that, then that is really what a cappella is all about.” 

CBS: How has your lullaby album, A Father’s Lullaby, been received?  What has the feedback been?

NL: “A Father’s Lullaby has been really well received, most importantly by Camden himself. I made the CD as a tribute to him and it’s been a special project that him and I share together. He liked it, which is the most important thing. It’s also been really well received by my fans who grew up with me and are now at the age where they’re starting to have families of their own. It seemed like a really appropriate project for my fan base and I’ve gotten great feedback. For example, people are tweeting pictures of their babies sleeping to the album, which is always fun to see. There has been a great response from the fans.”

CBS: It’s a great holiday gift for new dads!  Please share with all the dads (and moms shopping for dad) out there how this will help them bond with their little bundle of joy.

NL: “I found out last year that for any new parent, one of the most important parts of the day is when your baby is sleeping. [laughs] Aside from being able to get stuff done and get some peace of mind, sleep is such an important part of the baby’s development early on. So the album is my contribution to helping babies fall asleep. Lullabies have been around for forever and have always been a special part of bonding with your baby as they fall asleep. On my album, there are classic lullabies that people will recognize, which have been sung for generations and generations. There are also new, original lullabies that I wrote for Camden. The CD features a mixture of both, but all in the lullaby-arena.  The songs are designed to help babies go to sleep, so that parents can have a little break.”

CBS: When we last spoke, you mentioned that you sing to Camden.  Do you still sing to him?  Does he sing with you now?

NL: “Every day! I literally just put him down for a nap about an hour ago. I sing ‘Sleepy Eyes’ to him every day before he naps and before he sleeps at night. That is one of the songs I wrote for him on the album, and it has become our ‘go-to-bed’ song. When he hears me start singing that one, he knows it’s time to shut it down. That is our special little moment together.

In regard to how he responds to my singing, he likes to kiss me in the middle of it. It is as sweet as can be, but I can’t help but to laugh. [laughs] He will reach out and give me a kiss. He used to just grab my face when I’d sing to him. He doesn’t sing with me yet, but one day we will do a little duet. It’s a very sweet, tender, and personal moment when you’re with your baby and putting him down. I get a kick out of it every time, and it is a very special moment that I look forward to for sure.”

CBS: Has fatherhood changed you?  Have you learned anything about yourself?

NL: Fatherhood has changed me in every way; for every decision and situation I encounter in my life, I now have to consider and I want to consider my child. Your child really becomes the most important thing in your world and in your life. Honestly, I wouldn’t have it any other way. Every time I am away I am dying to get home. It’s the one thing that motivates and drives everything else in your life. It’s amazing to watch your child learn, as something new happens every day and your child evolves and changes. It’s hard to put into words how much fatherhood really affects everything.

I’ve learned a great amount of patience. I think you do have a lot of patience. For example, my kid can be trying something and he has his own process. As adults, we sometimes expect our children to go with our flow, but it doesn’t always work that way. You have to have patience with everything. You also find yourself having a lot of fun doing stuff that would normally drive you nuts. When it’s your child, you have fun with it and it’s an experience. You cherish every second of it. Camden has given me great perspective and patience, and he certainly taught me another dimension of love that I’ve never experienced before. I’ve learned quite a bit.”

CBS: Any plans for baby number 2?

NL: “We definitely want another baby, at least one more child. There is no immediate plan for it, as it’s kind of one of those things that can pop up at any time. All I can say is that we definitely do want more kids. We love being parents and want a family of more than one child. We will see where that goes, but right now we are just enjoying Camden and everything that comes along with him. I don’t want to rob him of any of our attention by bringing another one in too quick.”

CBS: How do you and Vanessa find time for each other amongst busy careers and diaper changes?  

NL: “I think you just have to plan it. It’s one of those things where if you are not careful, your whole life can be consumed by having a child. There is something important about remembering what got you there, remembering your relationship and focusing on it. We make it a point to have at least one night a week to go out to dinner, to a movie, or to a concert to bring it back to our relationship. It’s important to have good babysitters around who can help relieve you when you need a little break.”

CBS: What’s up next for you?

NL: “Right now, I am just getting ready for The Sing-Off and the lullaby album. I am also working on another album called The Soundtrack To My Life, which is comprised of songs that are based on movies that I grew up with. They are soundtrack songs that were benchmarks in my life. I am in the middle of finishing that up. Next year, who knows? I am not sure if 98 Degrees will do another run next summer, and maybe I will do solo music or host a TV show. One of the great things about my career is that it evolves and there are a lot of different aspects to it. I am not really sure where the journey is going to take me.”

Happy Thanksgiving: Celebrity Parents Share Gratitude

Monday, November 25th, 2013

This post was written by our friends at Celebrity Baby Scoop

To celebrate the festive season, we asked some of our favorite celebrity parents what they are grateful for.

From Holly Madison’s first Thanksgiving with daughter Rainbow and her new husband, to Bethenny Frankel‘s gratitude to her daughter Bryn, to Nick Lachey‘s happy family life, let’s hear how some high-profile parents are counting their blessings this Thanksgiving.

Holly Madison:

New mom Holly Madison has a lot to be thankful for this holiday season.

In September, the former Playboy model married Pasquale Rotella in an over-the-top wedding at Disneyland. And the newlyweds are set to celebrate their 8-month-old daughter Rainbow‘s first Thanksgiving.

“I am thankful for my wonderful husband and baby as well as our close friends and family,” Holly tells Celebrity Baby Scoop.

Bethenny Frankel:

The Real Housewives of New York City alum Bethenny Frankel may be going through a high-profile divorce and custody battle with Jason Hoppy, but the talk show host has a lot to be grateful for this holiday season — thanks to her 3-year-old daughter Bryn.

“This year, I am thankful for my relationship with my daughter and the fact that we are so close,” Bethenny tells Celebrity Baby Scoop. “I am thankful that I truly know what love feels like.”

Nick Lachey:

Multi-platinum recording artist and TV personality Nick Lachey is counting his blessings this holiday season.

“I am mostly thankful for my immediate and extended family,” Nick tells Celebrity Baby Scoop of his happy family life with Vanessa Lachey and their 1-year-old son Camden.

“We are all happy and healthy, which I thank God for,” he adds. “I am also thankful for having my little boy now. This time last year, he was still pretty new at just two-months-old. A year later, it’s amazing to see what kind of boy he is turning into and what he is learning. He’s a lot of fun right now. It’s a great age—we can wrestle and I can teach him stuff. I am thankful for my family, for my wife, for my son, and all the love and joy they bring to my world.”

Nancy O’ Dell:

Entertainment Tonight correspondent Nancy O’Dell says she has “so much” to be grateful for this Thanksgiving.

“Gosh, I am thankful for so much,” Nancy, proud mom of 6-year-old daughter Ashby and stepsons Tyler and Cason, tells Celebrity Baby Scoop.

“But I would say I am most appreciative of the little moments these days,” she adds. “I have really learned to enjoy the simple things these past couple of years. I have my husband to thank for that. He is always telling me to live in the moment. For example, last night after I came home for work, my daughter and I carved and decorated pumpkins together. We had been talking all week about it and planned that last night was the night. I can’t tell you how much I was looking forward to that simple moment with her. It is so much fun to see her eyes light up with excitement about something. She actually squealed out of happiness when I walked in the door last night knowing it was time to carve! And we had the best time, giggling, roasting the seeds, and decorating our front door.”

She continues: “We have also been doing family game night these days. My two boys, my daughter, my husband and I gather around a table and play all kinds of board games and card games. It is such a fun family bonding thing to do and we have great conversations in between turns.”

Natalia Cigluti:

All My Children star Natalia Cigluti and husband, former NASCAR driver Rob Rizzo, are set to have a happy Thanksgiving with their 8-year-old son Kaden.

“I’m very thankful for my family, for my son, for the life I have, and for the people I love who love me,” the Saved by the Bell: The New Class alum tells Celebrity Baby Scoop.

Bruce Boxleitner:

Contagion star Bruce Boxleitner – dad to grown sons Sam and Lee – has a lot to be grateful for this Thanksgiving.

“I am thankful that I am still working,” the Tron actor, who is also dad to son Michael, 23, with ex-wife Melissa Gilbert, jokes with Celebrity Baby Scoop.

“I have been at this for many years, almost forty years, and I am very grateful that I have a good career going,” he adds. “I love what I do and the people I get to work with. It’s a blessing.”

Star Dads Celebrate Father’s Day, Share Cherished Family Moments

Thursday, June 13th, 2013

Star Dads Celebrate Father's Day, Share Cherished Family Memories

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

In honor of Father’s Day this Sunday, we’re taking a look at some of Hollywood’s leading men from father-of-two Freddie Prinze, Jr., to new dads Nick Lachey and Bill Rancic, to dad-of-one Richie Sambora, and father-of-five Chris O’Donnell.

We’re highlighting 16 proud papas who share their upcoming Father’s Day plans, the joys of fatherhood, and their cherished family memories.

Richie Sambora:

Rockstar papa Richie Sambora, 53, and his ex-wife, actress Heather Locklear, are parents to 15-year-old daughter Ava.

The Bon Jovi rocker opened up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about the joys of fatherhood and his plans on Father’s Day.

“I’m very lucky because to me, every day that I spend with my daughter is Father’s Day,” the proud papa gushed. “She is my diamond. No matter what happens there is a joyful energy around us. My favorite thing in the world is her.”

He went on to talk about his late father, whom he continues to cherish.

“I celebrate by thinking about my dad and all the gifts he’s given to me,” he shared. “He was non-judgmental, good natured and had good humor and morality. I also celebrate by going out on a daddy-daughter date.”

What has fatherhood taught the award-winning guitarist?

“A lot of things to mention here but, I guess truly, how to love unconditionally,” Richie said. “I’ve learned to take responsibility, be flexible, and have respect for my parents for what they’ve given me.”

Tamera Mowry-Housley & husband Adam Housley:

Tia & Tamera star Tamera Mowry-Hardrict and husband Adam Housley are parents to 7-month-old son Aden.

The Sister, Sister alum, 34, spoke about her hands on hubby.

“My hubby has a lot of patience, and I knew that because he has a lot of patience with me,” she laughed. “He has so much patience with Aden and will do anything for him and his family. He definitely puts us first, I feel it and I know it.”

Tia Mowry-Hardrict & husband Cory Hardrict:

Tamera’s twin sister, Tia Mowry-Hardrict, and her husband Cory Hardrict are parents to nearly 2-year-old son Cree.

What makes her hubby such a great dad? “Aww, that’s such a great question!” Tia gushed. “No one has ever asked me that.”

“What makes my husband a good dad is that he’s very aware,” she added. “Let’s say I’m exhausted from working all day. He’ll see that and say, ‘You know what, Tia? I’ll go ahead and take care of Cree and give him a bottle when he wakes up in the middle of the night. Why don’t you go to the other room and get a few extra hours of sleep?’ He’ll also say, ‘Alright Tia, go take a nap. I’m going to take Cree to the park.’”

She added: “I think ‘considerate’ is the best word to describe my hubby. That’s what makes him a good dad. He’s aware and he also takes the time to play with Cree. He’s very proactive, which I think is awesome.”

Freddie Prinze, Jr.:

Star couple Sarah Michelle Gellar, 36, and Freddie Prinze, Jr., 37, are parents to daughter Charlotte, 3, and 9-month-old son Rocky.

SMG opened up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about their thoughts on celebrating Father’s Day.

“We always say that every day is Father’s Day and every day is Mother’s Day so we don’t make a big deal out of that specific day,” the Buffy alum shared. “And we always spend the weekends together as a family anyway.”

Antonio Sabàto, Jr.:

General Hospital alum Antonio Sabàto, Jr. is dad to three kids: Jack, 18, Mina, 11, and Antonio, 2.

The actor-model, 41, recently talked about the joys of fatherhood.

“Everything!” Antonio gushed on what he loves about being a dad. “It’s a constant responsibility—everything that I do, every move that I make, is for the well-being of my family. All of my decisions are made with them in mind, and they are the most important part of my life.”

The Guncles:

Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood stars Bill Horn and Scout Masterson (a.k.a. The Guncles) are parents to 3-year-old daughter Simone.

The proud TV dads spoke about their upcoming Father’s Day plans.

“In past years, Simone and her Nana took us out to brunch,” Scout said. “Since Simone is 3-years-old now, we’d like to do something a little more fun – like mini golfing!”

He added: “We feel so blessed to be dads, that everyday truly feels special to us.”

Helen Slater:

In honor of Father’s Day, The Good Mother actress Helen Slater dished to us about her devoted husband, Robert Watzke.

When asked what makes her hubby such a great day, she shared, “His devotion to the family, sense of humor, and kind nature,” she also said. “It helps that he’s from Iowa City [laughs].”

Elisabeth Röhm:

The Client List’s Elisabeth Röhm - who raises 5-year-old Easton with fiancé Ron Anthony – recently had this to say about her partner in life.

“Easton is Ron’s top priority, and that is obvious,” she shared. “He shows her plentiful love and affection, and it’s clear that everything he does is for her and our family. She knows it as well, and I think that’s important.”

Chris O’ Donnell:

NCIS: Los Angeles actor Chris O’Donnell is dad to five children: Lily, 14, Chip, 13, Charles, 10, Finley, 7, and Maeve, 6.

The Scent of a Woman star, 42, told us what Father’s Day means to him.

“It means spending time with my family,” he said. “I also plan to play golf without a trace of guilt. Some of my most memorable gifts from my kids have been homemade cards – my kids putting their feelings into words.”

Melissa Rycroft & Tye Strickland:

Reality star Melissa Rycroft and husband Tye Strickland are parents to 2-year-old daughter Ava.

The Bachelor alum, 30, boasted about her “hands on” hubby.

“Oh my gosh, I lucked out on the daddy department,” she gushed. “I have to say, the fact that he’s hands on, that he wants to be involved, that he enjoys daddy daughter time, is just such a blessing. I know that I’m very, very lucky. Just seeing him with her and seeing how she responds to him, it definitely makes you fall in love a little bit more.”

Amy Grant & Vince Gill:

Grammy Award-winning singer Amy Grant and husband, country legend Vince Gill, are parents to five children: Jenny, 31, Matt, 25, Millie, 23, Sarah, 20, Corinna, 12.

The singer-songwriter, 52, opened up about what makes her famous hubby, 56, a great dad.

“He is good at lightening the mood. He enjoys teasing, and I think that’s a good thing,” she shared.

“I’ll tell you what makes him a good stepfather,” Amy continued. “He has three stepchildren and he gave them all their space and didn’t pretend like he was their choice. He was their mommy’s choice, and slowly over the years they grew to love him.”

Scott Wolf:

Party of Five alum Scott Wolf is dad to sons Jackson, 4, and 6-month-old Miller.

The Everwood star, 45, spoke about fatherhood, the favorite role of his life.

“[Father's Day] means celebrating my favorite (tied with husband!) role in this life,” he gushed. “Hopefully it means breakfast in bed and a relaxing day with the family. Every day with these too beautiful boys feels like Fathers’ Day to me.

Nick Lachey:

Nick Lachey, 39, and wife Vanessa Lachey, 32, welcomed their first child, son Camden, on September 12.

“It has changed me for sure. It literally affects everything you do, every decision you make,” Nick said. “Your priorities completely shift and your kids instantly become the most important thing in the world. I think it’s made me a more patient person as well.

“My greatest joy is waking him up every day,” he added. “Seeing that little boy look up and smile at me every morning is the perfect way to start my day. The biggest challenge is having enough time in the day to do everything I need to do.”

Perez Hilton:

Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton became a dad earlier this year when he welcomed his son Mario Armando Lavandeira, IIIor Perez Hilton Jr., on February 16.

The first-time dad gushed about the joys of fatherhood.

“Being a father is awesome and everything I could have hoped for and more,” he shared.

Giuliana Rancic & Bill Rancic:

Bill Rancic and wife Giuliana Rancic welcomed their first child, son Duke, on August 29.

Giuliana shared about celebrating Bill’s first Father’s Day.

“I want to plan a very special Father’s Day since this will be Bill’s first,” Giuliana said.

She added: “Since we’re spending Mother’s Day in LA, I’d love to plan an exciting weekend in Chicago – Bill’s hometown – with both of my boys. Depending on the weather, I’d love to start off with a run with Bill and Duke in the jogger along the lakefront. It would be really nice to walk to the zoo, some museums, and then top the night off with dinner at RPM Italian.”

Jewel & Ty Murray:

Singer-songwriter Jewel and husband, rodeo cowboy Ty Murray, are parents to nearly 2-year-old son Kase.

The Grammy Award-winning singer happily shared this about her “dedicated” and “hands on” husband.

“My husband’s a very dedicated dad,” she gushed. “He doesn’t want to work or do anything but stay at home and help with the baby. He’s a very hands on dad, which is a great thing about him.”

Andrew Zimmern:

Celebrity chef Andrew Zimmern is proud dad to 8-year-old son Noah.

The television personality, 51, talked about how fatherhood has changed him.

“It has increased my patience by a factor of about fifteen, and it has also made me increasingly aware of the problems I have with my own selfishness,” Andrew shared. “When I am just thinking about me, I am not being very useful to my son or my wife. Having a child is a supreme motivator in that regard.”

“I am on nappy patrol,” Robbie said after Teddy’s birth. “I am nappy changer, chief nappy changer. I love it. I love burping her. I love feeding her and I love changing nappies. It’s weird – I find it uniquely bonding.”

“Your world changes for the better – she’s an absolute gift, she’s an absolute joy,” he added. “I absolutely adore being a dad.”

Best of 2012: Favorite Maternity Trends

Monday, December 31st, 2012

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

Brazilian beauty Camila Alves knows how to make pregnancy look good!

Before giving birth to her third child with Matthew McConaughey earlier this week, the model mom flaunted her maternity curves with fitted dresses and colorful prints as her belly grew.

Vanessa Lachey on her Pregnancy: “I’m Feeling Good, Mostly Anxious”

Friday, August 31st, 2012

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

Mom-to-be Vanessa Lachey is feeling excited about welcoming her first child – a boy – with husband Nick Lachey “at any minute.” The Former Miss Teen USA is partnering with ShoeDazzle for their Celebrity Shoe Design Program for Charity, where all profits from the sale of her military-inspired bootie named Monroe will benefit the charity Operation Shower.

Vanessa opens up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about nearing the end of her pregnancy and feeling “anxious,” although prepared. She says her third trimester, “has been more of an emotional and mental training time,” and shares her struggles about taking a maternity leave.

CBS: Tell us about partnering with ShoeDazzle for their Celebrity Shoe Design Program for Charity and your military-inspired bootie named Monroe.

VL: I had the opportunity to combine two things I love: fashion and charity. ShoeDazzle asked me to help them design a shoe for the Fall, and 100% of the proceeds would go to a charity of my choice. I love Fall fashion, and immediately got excited about a bootie. I designed a military-inspired bootie and named it Monroe after Marilyn Monroe. She was an icon who always showed her love and support of the troops, so I thought it was fitting.

Being a new mom soon, and having grown up in the military, I chose Operation Shower as my charity to receive all the proceeds from the shoe’s sales. I love the idea of providing for military moms and families, and giving them the love and support they need while their spouses are away and unable to help provide for such an amazing important time in a family’s life.

CBS: How are you feeling at the end of your pregnancy?

VL: I’m feeling good, mostly anxious. Once you get down to the last couple of weeks, you are constantly on edge because it could happen at any minute. We have done all our preparation, so now it’s the waiting game.

CBS: How have you been keeping in shape during your pregnancy? Do you have a postpartum workout plan in the works?

VL: I worked out during the first two trimesters in moderation (it’s important for expecting women to monitor their heart rate 130/140 BPM). It’s not about losing weight or getting buff, it’s about health. I felt better when I got moving and active.

My last trimester has been more of an emotional and mental training time for me. I am reading a lot, learning a lot, and taking more time to talk about all sorts of things with my husband. Just about our lives changing, our parenting methods, and how much we are going to love this new little person in our family.

I am excited to get back into a program after baby. It’s amazing to see all of the things your body is capable of and how it changes.

CBS: Are you planning to take a maternity leave when the baby arrives? Or do you want to get back to work right away?

VL: I have struggled with this because I am an active person who constantly needs a creative outlet. I hear from so many people about not losing yourself to your baby, but I personally feel that this is our time to be a new family.

That being said, I don’t think the newborn phase should be the only time to be here for my baby. I think the beauty of being a woman is that you CAN juggle both. Each family is different, and I intend on finding the perfect balance between creatively having a project and also being the best mom I can be. After all, he’s going to need me now until the end of time.

The job of Mommy doesn’t ever end. It is one of the hardest jobs on this planet, but also one of the most rewarding. I look forward to taking on that role and living that chapter. It’s almost here! So for me, I can’t wait to take this time and enjoy this process and new life. The holidays with my boys sounds so perfect to me. Then, it’s all about finding ‘our’ balance.
