Ali Landry: “Motherhood Really Changed My Perspective”

Ali Landry: "Motherhood Really Changed My Perspective"

BY NADIA CARRIERE

Actress Ali Landry is most famously known as the “Doritos Girl” or Miss USA ’96 – however just recently the 36-year-old model ventured into the world of fashion, design and marketing by launching Belle Parish, a boutique style children’s clothing line. The Bella star, who is a big fan of Celebrity Baby Scoop sat down for an exclusive interview with us last week and spoke candidly about her new clothing line, the hopes and dreams she has for the future of Belle Parish, how she disciplines her adorable 2-year-old daughter Estela, her marriage to hubby, writer/film-maker Alejandro Gomez Monteverde and their eagerness to expand their family.

CBS: Congratulations on your new clothing line, Belle Parish! What inspired you to start a childrens clothing line?

AL: Thank you!

It all started after I had my daughter Estela. My mother started sending me packages filled with all these gorgeous hand embroidered, cotton batisse clothes she saved from when I was a baby as well these beautiful outfits she made using vintage patterns. Pajamas with pinch pleats and french lace, beautiful little rompers, just gorgeous things. I dressed Estela in those clothes every single day.

Its funny because I always thought I would be the kind of mother who dressed my kids in the typical “hip” and “cool” clothes which are so common here in LA, however motherhood really changed my perspective. When my daughter was born and I saw that precious, little, innocent baby, I thought to myself, ” My gosh she is going to grow so fast!”. Children in our society grow up so quickly, partly because of what they are exposed to. I wanted her clothing to be age appropriate, celebrating her childhood and decided then and there to start this line. It was also a way for me to get involved into marketing and branding; something I have always been passionate about.

    Heidi Montag: Octomom 2.0?

    Heidi Montag: Octomom 2.0?

    According to her costar Audrina Patridge, The HillsHeidi Montag has lofty aspirations for parenthood: “She said she wanted to be the next Octomom!” Audrina told Us at the Surfrider’s 25th Anniversary Gala on Friday in Los Angeles. “I was like, ‘Heidi, no you don’t!’”

    Audrina went on to say that 23-year-old Heidi is “ready for kids” but that her husband of just 5 months, Spencer Pratt, does not share her enthusiasm for starting a family.

    Recently, on The View, Spencer was quoted as saying that he wasn’t sleeping with his new wife because he believed she was trying to get pregnant: “She [says] she is not going to tell me she is going to go off her birth control.”

    However, Audrina doesn’t believe that the couple’s clashing opinions will cause a breakup: “[They are] bickering back and forth, like a married couple does.”

    She adds that marriage has made them even stronger as a couple: “They’re really close. They’re inseparable. I think if anything, it’s helped them in a lot of ways.”
