"[I went through postpartum depression] after Rowan was born. I had a healthy, beautiful baby girl and I couldn't look at her. I couldn't hold her, smile at her. All I wanted was to disappear and die. I thought my baby would be better off without me. With help I learned what was going on inside my body and my brain. I learned I wasn't doing anything wrong to feel that way – that it was out of my control. I wrote about it because I didn't want to push it under the carpet for my children to discover. Stuff that gets unacknowledged or unexplored festers." - Brooke on her experience with postpartum depression after Rowan's birth.

"[Being a single mother] isn't the ideal scenario. It’s quite tough. I wanted to write, because it meant I wouldn’t be at work all the time. I could work in the house and still spend plenty of time with my child. For me, it’s that balancing act between giving my child the time she needs, but also finding something that is going to satisfy me as a working woman. That is a real juggle." - Geri on her daughter.

"I hate it when I don’t see Bluebell. It’s like I’m addicted to her.” - Geri on her feelings about being away from Bluebell.

"Her daddy said if it's a girl, I think her name should be Apple. It sounded so sweet and it conjured such a lovely picture for me – you know, apples are so sweet and they're wholesome and it's biblical – and I just thought it sounded so lovely and…clean! And I just thought, 'Perfect!' And then she was born, and it became an international outrage. Which I found surprising because there are people named Rose or Lily or Ivy or June…or lots of pretty nouns!" - Gwyneth on the reasoning behind her daughter's unique name.

"We are 900 miles over the moon” - proud papa Chris on the birth of his first child.

"I've been saving my clothes for her since before she was born. I was like, I'll bet you anything I'll have a daughter, and she'll be a really cool butch lesbian and be so above clothes, and I got a very clothes-obsessed child. So if she's a lesbian, she's a lipstick lesbian. She doesn't like anything avant-garde at all. She likes anything that's pretty, pretty, pretty or has a bow or a ruffle or is pink." - Gwyneth on her daughter.

There’s kind of cosmic intensity about it. Our kids look so much more like us than birth children look like their parents.” - Sharon on the connection between adoptive parents and their children.

"[Laird is] a big romancer. When you talk to him on the phone, he’s like, ‘I’m in love with you, Mommy.’ ” - Sharon on her affectionate middle son.

I have an office at Sony and every time my kid starts packing up and putting stuff on her jacket, I say: “Where are you going?” She’ll reply: “Work!” And I’ll say: “Where are you working today?” And she’ll reply: “Sony.” So I’ll ask her if she’s writing and she’ll say: “Making a movie…” So, she knows I make movies.” - proud papa Adam on his eldest daughter.

Name: Bear Blu Jarecki 

Date of Birth: May 5, 2011

Parents: Alicia Silverstone & Christopher Jarecki

Siblings: None

Facts:


 Baby Bear was born in Los Angeles, Calif.
 
 He was delivered via a water birth at a local birthing center 
 
 Bear weighed 7 lbs & 15 oz at birth
 
 His mom penned a best-selling book titled The Kind Diet 
 
 Alicia - a known vegan and animal rights activist - caused quite a stir when she posted a video of herself feeding Bear by mouth.
 
 Alicia and Chris plan to raise their sweet son as vegan
 

Quotes:

"[Bear has] crazy amounts" of hair and has been a "really calm" baby so far. I  didn't leave the house at all for six weeks after his birth. I wanted to soak in every moment of his scrumptiousness - new mama Alicia on her baby boy.

"Bear was grown on vegan food and we’ll continue nourishing him with a healthy diet…He’ll be eating an organic plant-based diet. I intend to take great care of his precious new baby body so I’m committed to giving him nothing but the purest and most healthy food possible. We want to keep his immune system strong so that he’ll be super healthy – which is just one of the many reasons he’ll eat vegan.” - Alicia on her decision to raise Bear as vegan.

"I can understand that [pre-chewing food and feeding it to your child via mouth-to-mouth] would make some people feel uncomfortable, possibly, because it's new to them but I do want to let you know that this has been going on for thousands of years -- still going on all over the place -- and it's natural. My kid is healthy. My kid's the happiest baby ever. He didn't have teeth and he would choke. And, basically, how it started was simply that Bear - when he was about 5 months old - I'd be eating and he would come at me with his little mouth open and be on my mouth trying to get the food out of my mouth." - Alicia on her defense of feeding bear by pre-chewing his food and transfering it into his mouth.

Quotes:

All it means is that both Heidi and I wanted her to have the same last name as the rest of us. It was about Leni. I don't want her to feel different because I know what that's like, being a kind of stepson. And I don't want that dynamic for my little girl." - Seal on legally adopting Leni.

"It's a huge responsibility to have four kids. They all have different likes and dislikes and activities that they want to do. You have to learn how to juggle all of that, and at the same time, give them each the love that they need." - Heidi on raising her family of four.

Name: Grier Hammond Henchy

Date of Birth: April 18, 2006

Parents: Brooke Shields & Chris Henchy

Siblings: Rowan, 8

Facts 


 Grier was born in Los Angeles, Calif.
 
 She weighed 7 lbs. & measured 20 inches long at birth
 
 Her mother suffered the debilitating effects of postpartum depression after the birth of Rowan and penned the book Down Came the Rain: My Journey Through Postpartum Depression. 
 
 Grier reportedly means "vigilant" and has Scottish origins
 
 Grier was born in the same hospital, on the same floor and on the same day as Suri Cruise
 
 
Quotes

"I said to Rowan, 'The baby is going to live in our house.' There was a long pause, then she looked at me and said, 'She is going to live in my house?' But she's been helping me decorate the room. It's been sweet. I'm glad she'll have a sibling." - Brooke on her second daughter.

"There are so few children I like. If you’re not polite, you can’t come to my house. Manners [represent] respect and kindness. I want people to like my kids, and if they’re bratty, they’ll have a harder time in life.” - Brooke on teaching her girls important life skills.

"My version of being selfish has shifted. My old version was to be comfortable, to get sleep and exercise. Now it’s my children’s worlds. They’re not going to remember Mom was tired. They’re going to remember I did the weather chart or story time at school. So you just do it. And you’re tired. I sit there and think, My brain’s turning to mush! It’s the mundane stuff that’s important.” - Brooke on how motherhood has changed her.

"I feel like they need me, but I feel like they're able to be more self-sufficient and their real personalities come out with their father. For my girls, mom is sort of laden with emotions. When they're sad, they want Mom. When they're hurt, they want Mom. So much of it is based on them needing me. And also, because I'm mom, I'm more of the disciplinarian. It feels like they need their dad in a sort of more independent level. My older daughter Rowan really loves watching any type of sports with her dad. She's not really interested in the sport, per se, but she has this unique bond with him about it. It's almost like she has this inside joke with her dad. They're friends; they act like buddies." - Brooke on her daughter's relationships with their father.

Name: Suri Cruise

Date of Birth: April 18, 2006

Parents: Katie Holmes & Tom Cruise

Siblings: Isabella, 19, & Connor, 17

Facts:


 Suri was born at Saint John's Health Center in Santa Monica, Calif.
 
 Suri wasn't seen in public until September 2006 and was first photographed for the October 2006 cover of Vanity Fair, which was incidentally the magazine's best selling issue of all time
 
 Some say her first name means either "princess" in Hebrew, or "red rose" in Persian, while others have said that Suri is a Yiddish form of Sarah.  Suri can also be translated into a Hindi boy's name and it means "pointy nose" in some Indian dialects and "pickpocket" in Japanese.
 
 Her second birthday party made headlines when Tom and Katie spent a reported $100,000 on the event. The theme was butterflies, and the lavish cake had an excessive $5,000 price tag alone. Catering cost the couple $45,000 and the sweets didn't end with the cake. Reportedly, $230 was doled out for cupcakes from LA's Sprinkles bakery as well.
 
 Last year, Suri celebrated her 5th birthday with a lavish tea party alongside mom and dad at their Beverly Hills mansion.
 

Quotes:

"Becoming a mother has been the most amazing experience--in an instant you become strong. You have to be a little bit wiser; it's the most important job you have in the world." - mama Katie on motherhood.

"We like to be together, so we use the house for our [business] meetings. [We] play Yahtzee, board games, Scrabble. We grill; have pool parties. We play 'The Three Little Pigs' and Suri is the Big Bad Wolf. [Tom] reads story books to Suri and we all laugh. When a good song comes on, he'll break into dance. We'll watch movies in bed--recently Madagascar and Cinderella, for Suri. We have a really good time." - Katie on her family.

"She's really such a special girl -- strong and funny. She's her own person. She has a great sense of humor." - Katie on her first born daughter.

"Some of the stuff [people said about Suri] was such absolutely horrible things to say about a child... It was so uncalled for and so disgusting. Enough is enough." - Katie on the rumors that followed Suri's birth.

"My daughter was with me the other day at a work event and it was a long day. I took out some paper and markers that I had in my bag, and someone said to me, ‘Oh, that is so cute,’ and I looked at her and thought, No, this is not cute. This is what all mothers have to do.'" - Katie on what it takes to be a mom.

"It comes down to the same thing as when I was a kid. Can I create a character that will make her happy, that will make [Suri] laugh? And you know what? She makes me get better and better, because she's always asking me to do it again." - papa Tom on his youngest daughter's ability to make him a better person.

"I'll never forget the moment I became a dad. But it's hard to describe -- that level of responsibility, the desire to give such joy. The clarity: Nothing is more important than this." - Tom on fatherhood.
