Extra has teamed up with Momlogic.com and assembled a superstar lineup of celebrity moms for a candid and informative chat about motherhood, marriage, career, and ways to balance them all. Included in this Mother’s Day special are celebrity moms such as Heidi Klum, Brooke Shields, Keisha Whitaker and Joely Fisher.
Supermodel Heidi Klum, who is expecting a girl with husband Seal says, “You have to always keep a smile on your face for sure. Go to bed very early…Having 3 children with a fourth on the way, I’m always tired and the day is so packed with so many things…I always want to do it all.”
And how do celeb mom’s keep the romance alive? Joely Fisher jokes, “Do everything in a bikini and really high heels.” Klum’s got a secret weapon and his name is Seal. “I just look at my husband and that’s it.”
Does Joely share her bed with the kids? “I would keep them next to me as long as I can because there’s going to come a time they’re not going to want to be around me.” Fisher jokes with Klum saying, “She sleeps with Seal, so she’s like ‘Get out!’”
Best-selling author and mother of two, Brooke Shields, says women should not feel guilty if they don’t want children: “Having kids is not for everyone and no one should feel guilty about it if they decide it’s not for them.”
Tune into Extra this weekend for the full Mother’s Day special. One mommy actually confesses that she peed in her kid’s pull-up while driving to church!

According to a new ParentDish poll, when moms are in need of a celebrity babysitter, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi are the first people they’d call. The newlyweds are followed by Jennifer Aniston and Rachel Ray, both of whom beat out mom-of-six Angelina Jolie. Talk show queen Oprah Winfrey rounded out the list with 9% of the vote.
The poll, conducted just in time for Mother’s Day, also asked readers to pick the best – and worst – celebrity moms.
Earning top spot is Jennifer Garner, with 37% of the vote. Violet and Seraphina’s mom beat out some tough competition, including Reese Witherspoon, Michelle Obama, Gwen Stefani and Angelina.
At the other end of the scale, Courtney Love was voted worst celebrity mom, followed by Dina Lohan, Britney Spears, Sarah Palin and Kate Moss.

Lance Armstrong says that his breakup with fiancee Sheryl Crow was over babies: She wanted them, he didn’t.
Lance, 37, and Sheryl, 47, were together for just over two years before parting ways in 2006. Sheryl later called the break-up “devastating,” telling Vanity Fair, “I do think about Lance every day. And I think about his kids every day.”
In his new book, Lance writes, “She wanted marriage, she wanted children; and not that I didn’t want that, but I didn’t want that at that time because I had just gotten out of a marriage, I’d just had kids [Luke, 9, and twins Grace and Bella, 7]. Yet we’re up against her biological clock – that pressure is what cracked it.”
He reveals that even couples’ counseling couldn’t help them to overcome the problem.
“If somebody wants a child – man, that’s the greatest gift you can give to a woman – … who are you to stand there and say I don’t want one? So we were at different points in our lives. We were not compatible on that issue.”
Sheryl went on to adopt her son Wyatt the following year. Lance is also to be a dad again – his girlfriend Anna Hansen is expecting a baby next month.
