Strike a pose! An expectant Jenna Elfman looked absolutely stunning at the 2009 Rodeo Drive Walk of Style Award Ceremony honoring Princess Grace (Kelly) of Monaco, held in Beverly Hills on Thursday (October 22). Jenna and hubby Bodhi Elfman looked happy and relaxed as they walked the red carpet.
The 38-year-old Accidentally On Purpose star revealed why she waited until recently to have children:
I was 35 when I got pregnant with Story. I was 36 when he was born. It wasn’t for lack of a spouse or partner. I was just focusing on my career, and I think a lot of women are focusing so much on their career that they’re not finding a man to have a child with.”
The Elfmans are expecting their second child in March.View Slideshow »»
Star-powered couple Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber were spotted doing some window shopping in Soho this afternoon (October 23) with their laid-back boy Sasha, 2.
The 41-year-old actress recently revealed that her priorities in life have changed considerably since she first made a name for herself in Hollywood:
Certainly, at the beginning, when things were taking off for me in America, I was on the treadmill and I didn’t want to have a relationship particularly. I wanted to travel a lot. I come from a background, that was not a troubled childhood or anything, but there has been some sadness, perhaps that I didn’t want to face and work seemed like a good option. But now I’ve changed a lot. I’ve slowed down and have a family. When I met Liev things changed.”
Naomi and Liev are also parents to 10-month-old son Kai.View Slideshow »»

Sweet Shoes was started by Mandi Dana-Panzer of Santa Cruz, CA, a busy stay at home mother of three. While finding stylish clothing and shoes for her daughter was never a problem, it just wasn’t as easy for her two younger boys. Anyone who has girls knows that the clothes and shoes offered are endless and adorable! However, boys just aren’t as lucky! So, she decided to design her own infant shoes and used the local surf/skate culture as her design inspiration. Her shoes are edgy and hip and her line offers enough styles to match the pickiest of little personalities. The soles are made with an extra layer of foam between two layers of leather; this provides extra shock-absorption while staying developmentally appropriate for infants growing feet.
We are giving away Sweet Shoes to 5 lucky readers! Also exclusive to our readers is a 20% discount (off a minimum $25 purchase) off the kitsel website. ADDED BONUS: The 20% discount applies to all products off kitsel website (excluding jewelry and furniture and cannot be combined with any other offers).
*HOW TO ENTER* Leave a comment here with a valid email address (will not be published). Please state your favorite product sold at Sweet Shoes and 5 winners will be chosen at random at the end of the contest. One entry per person, per day. This contest ends Friday, October 23rd at 7 P.M. EST. Entries open to US residents only. Good luck!
Congratulations to the winners of our Masala Baby giveaway: Camie C & Mo!
It’s all smiles at the White House! President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, and their daughters, Malia, 11, and Sasha, 8, sat for a family portrait in the Green Room of the White House on September 1.
Famed photographer Annie Leibovitz captured this great family shot that was officially released by the White House on Friday (October 23). Noticeably absent? Bo, the Obama family Portugese water dog!
The First Lady recently said the girls easily adjusted to life at the White House:
You know, happiness for me really is when my kids are good and when my family is whole. Moving [to the White House], whatever stresses would be on my husband and me, we could handle; we are grown-ups. But it wouldn’t be until the day that my kids came home and said to me, ‘I like it here,’ that I’d feel like I could breathe and know that we’re all going to be okay here. And that happened very early into the year. My happiness is measured against theirs – when they’re in a good place, I feel really good.”
Alysia Reiner and her husband, fellow actor David Alan Basche, just became first-time parents to daughter Livia last December. While Livia’s entrance caused a “massive shift in [their] familial universe,” the 39-year-old Sideways star said there’s nothing quite like Liv’s “very generous smiles, giggles and babbles.”
Alysia sat down with Celebrity Baby Scoop for an exclusive look into her “whirlwind life” which includes appearing on TV shows such as 30 Rock and Law & Order, promoting her newest film Speed Grieving which she created, produced and starred in, and of course making all of Liv’s food from scratch!
CBS: Your daughter Livia is turning 1 this December. How has the first year of motherhood been? How has your life changed?
AR: “Motherhood has been amazing. I truly had no idea of my capacity to love until I met Livia. Everyone says that, and I feel like a cliche, but it’s so true. Having said that, I’ll also say the first few months are rough, and if you’re a new momma going through it, the change in your life/body/marriage/identity are cosmic. Don’t underestimate hormones either! Be kind to yourself, and give yourself a break – both mentally and actually – whenever you can.
I had a wonderful post-natal doula named Patty who kept saying ‘happy Momma, happy family.’ It’s SO HARD in the beginning to take care of yourself, you just want to take care of this wonderous creature, but truly the best way to take care of her is to take care of yourself too.
