Tori Spelling, well loved for her role as Donna Martin on Beverly Hills, 90210, is one busy mama. She became a #1 New York Times best selling author when her entertaining autobiography sTori Telling, was released in 2008. It’s no surprise that her recent book, Mommywood, has also received rave reviews.
In addition to raising her two beautiful children Liam and Stella and filming her hit reality show Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood, the 36-year-old celebrity mama recently launched Little Maven, a line of chic and iconic clothing for children.
In a recent exclusive interview with Celebrity Baby Scoop, Tori opens up on the inspiration of her clothing line Little Maven, how she balances her career and family life, her children, family traditions as well as the one piece of advice she would give to new moms.
CBS: Congratulations on your recent success with your new clothing line Little Maven! I love the originality of all the designs as well as their vintage flair. You have mentioned that your children Liam and Stella were the inspiration for this gorgeous line. What made you decide to create a clothing line for children?
As an avid baby-wearer, I’m not a big fan of the traditional framed carriers. When you are toting a growing baby around the house, excessive weight and bulkiness are the last thing you need in a carrier!
The kokopax classic is not your average traditional frame carrier. Weighing only 2.7 lbs, this lightweight carrier is a breeze to use. The convenient kickstand allows for easy loading and unloading which is fantastic when you don’t have anyone around to help you! The alumnimum frame adjusts to fit individual users and the padded waist support is a welcome comfort.
If you have an especially “jumpy” or active baby you will appreciate the 5-pt safety harness which helps to insure your child is secure.
The kokopax classic also features:
• made with 100% cotton canvas
• comfortable shoulder straps
• handy storage pocket
• 5-pt. safety harness
• ties to secure pax protector™
• toy ring to attach koko™ or other toys
• fits in airline overhead bins
• makes a great every day baby backpack
• for use from 6 months to 2 years (or up to 35 pounds)
• includes green carry bag
• Available in the six fun colors, Bubbles, Buds, Sailor, Espresso, Garden & Licorice.
Keep your eye out for kokopax’s exciting, new products set to hit stores between December ’09 and January ’10. Their smart, new eco-classic carrier™ made from 100% natural cotton fabric and eco-friendly dyes, will be available in three fabric patters: sprout, bubbles take-two and pax and will retail for $179.99. For cost conscious parents, the kokopax city is an ideal solution, retailing for $99.99.

In a Twitter post that simply stated “chilling,” Ricky Martin shared the above picture of himself and his gorgeous 1-year-old son Matteo enjoying a day at the beach. Twin brother Valentino napped this one out.
Ricky seems like such a doting daddy. The Livin’ la Vida Loca singer said he has been transformed by fatherhood: “[It] feels amazing. I’m so happy! Everything they do, from smiling to crying, feels like a blessing. This has been the most spiritual moment in my life.”
The 37-year-old father-of-two has always been one of the most outspoken celebs in combating child trafficking. At the Clinton Global Initiative in September, Martin served as a presenter on the topic. Martin stated why he became an advocate for child trafficking:
Oh man, log onto the website and read what is going on and I swear, with all the information that’s in there, you will find something to do. Just talking about it and creating awareness is a good start. I can’t tell you what to do. It has to be born from within, like it started with me.”
Look over there mama! Busy dad Ben Affleck got a visit from a few of his favorite ladies on the Boston, Massachusetts set of his new film The Town today (October 20). The Oscar-winner seemed very happy to see his wife Jennifer Garner and daughters Violet, 3 1/2, and Seraphina, 9 months. On the way to the set it looked as though Jen had her hands full juggling both girls!
The hands-on mom recently revealed her idea of a perfect day in an interview with Parade magazine:

My perfect day is a day where I have a little bit of time with each kid and then we all play together. Where I make dinner where there’s enough left over for another day. And if the day ends with a glass of wine and a conversation with my husband, that’s a good day.”

The news of her pregnancy, which is just two months along, leaked a little earlier than she’d hoped due to some buzz on Perez Hilton: “It’s premature to be telling people this,” she told PEOPLE while fighting back tears. “It’s not like, ‘Did I Get Botox’ It’s not the way I wanted it to get out. I haven’t even gone through my first trimester. We haven’t even heard the heartbeat. My [fiancé’s] parents didn’t even know.”
Though the 38-year-old reality star had hoped to keep her news secret a little while longer, she and Jason are “both so excited”, but because it’s so early she is “praying everything is okay”.
The Housewives’ star admits that, at less than two months pregnant, her appetite has already started to change: “I’m hungry in a way that is not negotiable. I’m not eating tremendous amount[s] but if I am hungry, I will stab someone for food.”
She goes on to say that she ate a jar of pickles before she’d even taken a pregnancy test: “That’s so cliché. I just want salt. Salt on everything.”
Best wishes to Bethenny for a healthy pregnancy!
