New mom to 7-month-old Max, Christina Aguilera, recently told ET about her new fragrance Inspire and the joys of motherhood.
Christina, who was at Macy’s in New York for the launch of her new scent, says the fragrance is much like her upcoming album, “modern” and has a “high-fashion twist.” The scent has elements of fresia, gardenia and tuberose.
When asked about baby Max, Christina proudly stated that he is “amazing” and that she and hubby Jordan Bratman plan to add to their family in the future, but for now she’s focusing on work,
“He [Max] just lights up my whole world every day with his laughs and his smiles,” she gushed.

Brooke Burke recently blogged about the transition of getting her kids back into the school schedule. The upcoming cast member of Dancing With the Stars also asks readers for their opinions on good strollers:
Summer is over and I know lots of us are going through that tough transition of getting our kids back on the school schedule. Neriah and Sierra love the extra late summer nights, but now its time to get serious about early bed time. Elementary kids need 10 hours of sleep, no buts about it. I just read some great sleep tips on one of my favorite sites, www.momlogic.com (sleep tip section). I know how hard sleep deprivation is on me, imagine how it affects our kids? Btw, I would love some feedback on strollers. I have used the Bugaboo for years, but I am looking for a light, convenient, compact stroller that doesn’t take up the entire back of my truck. I just got the JOOVY Sit and Stand for Rain and Shaya. Rain can sit facing me, while Shaya rides forward, or Rain can stand and face forward as well. I love it. – Brooke

Jennifer Lopez plays muse and icon to some of her favorite designers in the latest issue of Elle magazine. She also opens up about her pregnancy with twins, Max and Emme (now 6-months-old).
On being pregnant and doing a photo shoot for Marc two weeks before giving birth: “I was like, How am I going to rock this moment of my life?… I felt very womanly. Marc was in a dream. He loved it.”
On not being able to get pregnant right away: “We knew nothing was wrong with either one of us—I had been checked, and he had kids already. I knew something’s not ready here, in my head or in my life, and when it is, I know it’s going to happen.”
On when she first realized she was pregnant: “I was sitting down doing hair and makeup and I felt a flutter. The weirdest little…flourish. My makeup artist said ‘What’s the matter?’ I didn’t say anything, but in my head, I was like, I have life inside me!”
On her pregnancy: “We came off tour and I said ‘I did the superwoman thing, I finished the tour—now I need you to take care of me. I love doing things for you; if I’m not cooking, then I’m picking out a shirt. But this is the first time in my life where I’m just going to be a little bit selfish. I don’t know if I’m going to have kids again, so I want it to be a beautiful experience. I don’t want to have any drama. I want to just be smiling every day.’”

Kate Hudson, 29, spoke to Cosmopolitan magazine, which hits newstands September 9, about her 4 1/2-year-old son Ryder Russell, and her relationship with his dad, ex Chris Robinson.
On giving up her partying ways for a child: “Am I going to look back and say, ‘God, I wish I could have gone to that concert?’ I’d rather be listening to my son sing songs. I’d rather be watching him sleep.”
On her ex-husband Chris Robinson: “Look – Chris and I are still basically living together! We’ve figured it out. I mean, obviously, nothings perfect, but I could never look at our divorce as a mistake. If anything, it’s the best thing that ever happened to us.”
