In celebration of moms everywhere, Celebrity Baby Scoop spoke with some celebrity moms -- including Sheryl Crow, Alyson Hannigan, Heidi Klum and Kendra Wilkinson -- on the joys of parenthood and their Mother’s Day plans. Take a look:
Gena Lee Nolin: Mom-of-four Gena Lee Nolin has been inviting Celebrity Baby Scoop readers along as she shares her life experiences -- and asks for advice -- as she juggles her busy life with husband, former NHL star Cale Hulse, and their children: Spencer, 17, Caia, 12, Hudson, 8, and Stella, 5.
In her latest guest blog, Gena shares her thoughts on the real meaning of Mother’s Day: “Mother’s Day to me has never been about getting flowers or fancy restaurants,” she shared. “It’s truly being with my children, eye to eye, sharing stories, their homemade cards and embracing the way they want to celebrate me.”
Bethenny Frankel: Reality star and talk-show host Bethenny Frankel celebrated her daughter Bryn‘s fourth birthday a few days before Mother’s Day. Celebrity Baby Scoop recently caught up with the talk-show host, and asked how Bryn would describe her. “She would say that I am a fun, strict, and loving mommy,” the single mom said of her preschooler.
Bethenny went on to gush about the joys of motherhood: “There’s nothing we don’t do together to bond,” she added. “We go to the park and to Disney On Ice, and we also have picnics and take nice walks. We have snuggle parties, cook, bake, and do everything. We sing and have dance parties too.”
Alyson Hannigan: "How I Met Your Mother" alum Alyson Hannigan and husband, fellow actor Alexis Denisof, are parents to two daughters: Satyana, 5, and nearly 1-year-old Keeva. “Being a mom is simply the best thing I have ever done,” Alyson said. “My kids make me laugh and smile every day.”
Hank Baskett, regarding his wife Kendra Wilkinson: Former NFL star Hank Baskett and wife, "Kendra on Top" star Kendra Wilkinson, are expecting their second child -- a daughter -- any day. Hank recently talked to Celebrity Baby Scoop about the joys of seeing his wife expecting their child: “I just love looking at her because that’s when you really look at a woman and say, ‘You have really given me everything.’ When a woman gives you a child, she is truly giving you everything,” Hank shared.
Heidi Klum: Model Heidi Klum is a proud mom of four kids -- Leni, 9, Henry, 8, Johan, 7, and 4-year-old Lou -- and recently opened up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about her favorite part of motherhood. “That is so hard, because there are so many amazing things,” said the "Project Runway" star. She added: “I would say the love that you feel with a child. For me, having a family is life and I understood once I had children how amazing it is, and that nothing else is really important but them.”
Hilaria Baldwin: Married to "30 Rock" star Alec Baldwin, yoga instructor Hilaria Baldwin recently opened up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about welcoming the couple’s first child together – daughter Carmen, 9 months. “I think the biggest surprise of motherhood is just the reality of it and how much you can really love this little person,” the new mom said. “She is such a sweetheart. People told me I was going to love my baby more than I could ever understand, and I almost didn’t believe them. However, they were absolutely right. Carmen is an absolute blessing.”
Snooki: Jersey Shore alum Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi welcomed her first child -- son Lorenzo -- in August 2012. For the former party girl, Snooki says motherhood has been transformative: “Motherhood has completely changed my life -- from the way I view things to the way I live my life,” she shared with Celebrity Baby Scoop. “Becoming a mom has just made me realize, ‘Grow the hell up.’ And just looking at my son everyday made me realize he’s my life now and I wouldn’t have it any other way.” She added: “The best thing about being a mom is knowing that my little nugget is mine and will always be my baby. He’s my sunshine.”
Sheryl Crow: Rockstar Sheryl Crow is proud mom to two sons -- Wyatt, 7, and Levi, 4. The singer-songwriter recently opened up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about her boys, who she says are “just the best.”
“They have so much energy and they keep me young! I wouldn’t change a thing,” the proud mom said. “I love getting to see things through their eyes.”
