Artist Linnea Lenkus has released a wonderful photoshoot of the Burke-Charvet family. Brooke and David, with their girls Neriah, Sierra and Rain, pose before the arrival of the new addition (a boy).
They look really happy all together and I can’t wait to see who the baby will look like. I’ve always thought that Rain looked like David, but I now find her to resemble her beautiful Mom more and more (and I love love love the way she smiles!!)

Jessica Alba is in Paris promoting her latest movie The Eye, and is pictured looking gorgeous at the premiere yesterday. While getting her hair and make-up done for the event, she did some blogging on her MySpace page.
Hey guys, I am now in Europe promoting to “the eye.” LAST TRIP!!! Went to the Lanvan show and the Rodin museum in Paris…amazing. Also saw Amy Whinehouse perform. She has such an incredible voice. She’s definitely a throwback…reminiscent of Ella. I am currently getting my makeup done to go to the premiere of my movie. Can’t wait to get home and rest. Every day I have eaten ham and cheese sandwiches, I cant get enough of them. Wish they had these back in the states, the bread is amazing. My tummy is getting bigger by the second and the little one must like the food too because it is moving and kicking like crazy. ITS THE BEST. Have to go but just wanted to check in. JA
I think she looks beautiful, and it must be fun being pregnant in Paris–especially if bread and cheese is one of your cravings!

In the April issue of Glamour, new mom Salma Hayek talks about why she wanted a son, how Valentina, now 5-months old, has changed her life and her plans to marry François Henri Pinault. Below are some snippets from the interview:
How Salma handled the transition into motherhood:
The best thing that’s ever happened to me is this thing that has happened to so many women, which is having a baby. Every second is magical, every smile. I cannot get enough of it, because I am not sitting here thinking, What am I going to do with my life? I’ve already established my career. I think it’s very good to have a child at this age. I’m in a great place.
How Valentina changed her as a woman?
I don’t remember very well who I was before. Part of me feels like it’s so new and so strange to have a baby, and part of me feels like I’ve known [her] face forever. Somehow I am really relaxed within the chaos of having a baby—and anyone who’s a mother knows it’s very hard to relax, because there is so much to do and worry about! I just feel so fortunate to be her mother, and it makes me excited about the rest of my life, because I will get to witness her transformation every day. I feel I was born to have this girl.

About her gestational diabetes
I had diabetes while I was pregnant. I became huge. And I said, “This is what it takes for me to have this baby, and I really want it.” Then you don’t know if it’s going to be healthy; you are completely out of control. So the experience really makes you humble.
Why she wanted a boy
Well, I have to confess something—I wanted a boy. At the beginning I did. Probably because I was afraid. I think women suffer a bit more than boys, and there is always conflict between mothers and daughters. But now that she’s here, I’m so happy she’s a girl. And I can’t imagine there ever being conflict between us, because I’m in a state of innocence where I love everything she does. If she does a poop and I have to change the diaper, I love that moment!
How has François [-Henri Pinault, Salma’s fiancé] reacted to Valentina’s arrival
He warned me from the beginning that he gets very nervous when babies are so little—he thinks he’s going to break them! But he plays with her, sleeps with her, loves her, kisses her. He’s not obsessed like me. But he’s had two before!
Will they marry?
Right now I am just enjoying my baby. Do I think we are going to get married? Probably. Will it make a difference? I hope not. I don’t have a need for marriage. You want to grow old with someone, you want to have a partner and to have children—we have all those things. Some people need the commitment. Maybe we’ll just make the party!
Heidi Klum is one busy momma–she took Leni, 3, and Henry,2, to the dentist yesterday for their check-ups–then later that evening they were off to celebrate Brooklyn Beckham’s 9th birthday over at Pink Taco. Leni and Henry are just like my kids–excited with all of the little goodies they give out at the dentist. Too cute!!
