Bret McKenzie Is “Figuring Out Fatherhood”

Bret McKenzie Is “Figuring Out Fatherhood”

Flight of the Conchords star Bret McKenzie, who welcomed his first baby – a daughter named Vita – with publicist wife Hannah three months ago, reveals to the New Zealand Herald that he has been “figuring out fatherhood” ever since.

“Um, I’ve got a lot of room to improve,” says the 33-year-old actor/singer. “It seems like it’s quite a long-terms commitment.”

Baby Vita, whose name means “life” in Italian, has already shown her celebrity baby prowess in accompanying her parents to the Emmy Awards in September: “She was amazing,” Bret beams. “She was handing out the lollies and everything and she can’t even hold anything yet.”

Bret’s Flight of the Conchords costar Jemaine Clement and wife Miranda Manasiadis also have a son, Sophocles Iraia, who celebrated his first birthday last month.

    Cindy Crawford & Rande Gerber’s California Kids

    Cindy Crawford & Rande Gerber's California Kids

    Cindy Crawford, husband Rande Gerber and their two gorgeous children – son Presley, 10, and daughter Kaia, 8 – were spotted at a birthday party in Malibu before heading to a bike shop in Thousand Oaks on Sunday (November 15).

    Reports state that the German man, Edis Kayalar, attempting to extort $100,000 US from the Crawford-Gerbers over a photo of Kaia gagged and bound to a chair, has been charged. The photo was apparently snapped by the then 7-year-old’s nanny as a private joke when she was playing “cops and robbers” with Kaia, and it came into the hands of Kayalar, who was the nanny’s friend.

    Court papers revealed that Kayalar first contacted Cindy and Rande in the summer and sought to use the photo, which the couple did not know about, to get money from them. Kayalar was arrested in September and deported to Germany, but earlier this month he again phoned the couple and demanded $100,000, which lead to him being charged with extortion.

    Jason Bateman & His Girls Express Themselves

    Jason Bateman, wife Amanda Anka and their adorable 3-year-old daughter Francesca attended the P.S. Arts Express Yourself event in Santa Monica on Sunday (November 15).

    The 40-year-old Arrested Development star says he can’t get enough of his sweet daughter: “I just like to throw her around. She’s a real good snuggler and she likes to give kisses and hugs. And her neck smells fantastic! You just want to ball her up and stuff her in your pocket. I’m doing all that until she gets too big and doesn’t want to kiss her dad anymore.”
