“It was fun to see my body transform during my first pregnancy … but I’m dieting all the time now and exercising more than ever, yet I can’t get my body to where it used to be … I didn’t get liposuction after Hank [Jr], because I knew I wanted more babies. But I will 100 percent have lipo after my second baby, because until then, I know I will never be satisfied looking in the mirror.”

There are certain types of photos that are not appropriate for Facebook. Such as nudie pics or pics of a crime being committed or say … pics of your baby sucking on a bong. Keep reading »
So what do we think of this Daddy’s Little Project Diaper Bag? It is designed to look like a tool belt, with a ton of pockets, and comes with blueprints on how to change a diaper.
Now, a diaper bag is just a bag you put diapers in, so clearly this is all about marketing. Some people — like Amelia, whose guy friend owns one — think the toolkit diaper bag is totally cute. [Cute enough that, made for "men" or not, I would want one for myself. -- Editor] Others — like me — see how it’s a cute product, but also think it’s as annoying/offensive as the pink-ification of products to signify they’re “for women.” I mean, diaper-changing blueprints? Men aren’t stupid. Keep reading »
Neil Patrick Harris and his boyfriend David Burtka are pretty much the cutest couple ever. And so we were thrilled to read on Neil’s Twitter page this weekend that they’re gonna be papas. “So, get this: David and I are expecting twins this fall,” he wrote. “We’re super excited/nervous/thrilled.” The two are becoming parents via a surrogate. And since they happen to look, oh, almost exactly the same, here’s hoping that they get two little blue-eyed, dimpled tykes who can also act, sing, and dance like no one’s business. Keep reading »
A few years ago, I jokingly declared that I would refrain from reproducing until after my 10-year college reunion. That way, I said (again, facetiously, although of course I’d be lying if there weren’t a tiny grain of vain truth to all this hilarious jokery), I wouldn’t have to worry about losing baby weight or having to remain sober as the Georgetown Class of 2001 reconvened. It wouldn’t be a concern whether some liquor might damage Junior, or Junior’s breast milk supply, and my 100 percent hot, completely flawless body would remain pristine until that date and, obviously, if everything went according to my imaginary plan, everyone would say, “Oh there’s Claire — she looks so great!” (Anyone who’s seen “Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion” knows this is Goal #1, with actual success to brag about being Goal #2, and perhaps having fun and seeing people you like being a distant #3.)

In a new post, “The Older Child,” blogger Heather Armstrong, better known as Dooce, seems to suggest that her eldest daughter no longer wants her mother to blog about her, at least not without her permission. Which begs the question: Should so-called “mommy bloggers” be able to blog about their kids without their kids’ permission? Keep reading »
My ovaries hurt last night watching the premiere of “19 Kids And Counting” on TLC featuring Michelle and Jim Bob and their army of children. Even though baby Josie, the latest addition to the Duggar clan, was born four months premature and they have been nursing her to health (she can’t poop!), Michelle and Jim Bob don’t plan to stop their marathon baby-making. They want number 20. “That would be wonderful! We would love another person to add to our family. We will wait and see and take it one at a time,” Michelle announced. No rest in sight for that weary womb. [Radar

Adele is on maternity leave following the birth of her daughter Mila. During Mila’s naps, Adele likes to imagine what her baby girl might be dreaming about and then captures it in photographs like the one above. Cannot. Stop. Cooing. Jessica says it looks like hipster Anne Geddes on crack, but I think it’s straight-up adorable. Check out a few more, after the jump … [Mila's Daydreams] Keep reading »
I just finished reading what I found to be a heartwarming story written by Marina Khidekel in Marie Claire about a 30-something woman who decided to have a baby with her gay best friend and his boyfriend. After getting out of a bad marriage, followed by a relationship with a dude who didn’t want kids, Kitty Stillufsen, was ready to start a family … with or without a man. “By the time I was 33, I’d pretty much done everything on my to-do list—traveled, carved out a career, bought two homes, and had a lot of fun … I felt empowered and free. But I wanted a family. I knew I had too much love in my heart not to have a baby, and I believed it was important that the child have a great dad,” she says.
And then while she was shopping for lingerie with her gay besties Darren and Sam, Kitty had a revelation. “In a total I-love-you-guys moment, I blurted out, ‘You two would be the best dads! When are we going to have a baby together?’” Keep reading »
