Hilary Duff’s Son Luca Knows He’s Number 1

I don’t usually go super crazy for babies, celebrity or otherwise, but for some reason I’m borderline obsessed with Hilary Duff’s adorable son, Luca. Maybe it’s because he sort of shares a name with Amelia’s adorable dog Lucca, maybe it’s because he’s always dressed in stylish little outfits with a slightly incredulous look on his face, but whatever the reason, I can’t get enough of this kid. And this photo of Luca very seriously pointing at the sky and/or telling the world he’s #1? It’s killing me with cuteness. I’m dead. [Photo: Splash News]

“I’ve had full conversations with the baby already. I’m trying my best to communicate from beyond the womb. Whether it can hear me, I don’t know, but I’m talking to it a lot.”

Josh Duhamel tells People about the lengthy chats he’s been having with Fergie’s pregnant belly. And it gets even better, as he explains how pregnancy has changed the couple’s connection: “I look at her now as not only my beautiful wife, but also as the woman carrying our child. That takes our relationship to a whole new level.” Siiiiigh. I’ve been nursing an unhealthily huge crush on Josh ever since I accidentally saw “Safe Haven” last week, and these kinds of quotes are not helping. [People]

Mayim Bialik’s Son Has Quit The Tit!

On Attachment Parenting
One woman's opinion about attachment parenting. Read More »

“Well, nay-sayers, prepare to be proven wrong. All of you snarky mamas who glared at me nursing my 3 1/2-year-old on the NYC subway, prepare to be amazed. And to all of my family and friends who wanted to chastise me about nursing a walking, talking, thinking, laughing little man named Fred, thanks for holding your tongues. Because we did it. Fred isn’t going to nurse on his way down the wedding aisle or at his high school graduation. I didn’t need to break him of a ‘habit’ and teach him ‘who’s in charge.’ I didn’t need to set boundaries you thought I should have set when I didn’t want to set them. Because we did it: Fred weaned.”

– The actress formerly known as Blossom, Mayim Bialik had some big news to share with the readers of her blog on the Jewish parenting site Kveller – her nearly four-year-old son has finally quit the tit! Bialik is one of the more well-known “attachment parents” in Hollywood and refused to be shamed by those who thought it was strange that she was still breastfeeding a toddler. Though I don’t know that would want to breastfeed my kid for that long (what about the teeth?!), I admire Mayim’s commitment to parenting the way she thinks is best for her family, regardless of what society thinks. I wonder if she’s a little relieved though. [Us Weekly]

“I didn’t really fully comprehend the level of guilt involved [with being a mom]. I like to pride myself on not being a person who really functions at a level of guilt, and yet, man, I never knew I could feel so guilty when I work 16 hours and I really don’t get to spend enough time with my son. It’s awful.”

–”Nashville” star Connie Britton tells People magazine about the newfound capacity for guilt she’s discovered as a mom to her adorable 2-year-old son Yoby, whom she calls “the most incredible kid.” Despite the struggles, Britton says, “I wouldn’t have it any other way,” and in fact she would love to add to her family: “I would love more kids. Why not? Bring it on.” God, can you imagine having Tami Taylor for your mom? Luckiest kids ever. Connie, just FYI, I’m totally available for adoption. [People]

Drew Barrymore Is Glad She Lived A “Full Life” Before Motherhood–What Do You Think?

“It’s embarrassing to go through any rebellious stage in front of people that you love and respect, and yet I’m glad I did. I’m glad I lived such a full life before I settled down into a family, because I got to enjoy it and get it out of my system.”

–Drew Barrymore tells Allure magazine that she doesn’t regret her very public wild child phase (which included a trip to rehab at age 13 and a legendary bra-less moment on the “Late Show With David Letterman”), because it prepared her to be a calmer and more present mother to her daughter, Olive, who was born this September. “I’m finally a part of a family,” she adds, “and it’s a miracle.” Awww!

I’m curious to hear from some other moms and moms-to-be about the point in your lives you had kids (or when you ideally want to have kids), and if you agree with Drew. I’ve always thought that it’s good to pack your pre-kid years full of as many crazy adventures as possible, but I’ve seen many of the younger moms in my life–the ones who might have “missed out” on that rebellious stage–become really amazing mothers. Thoughts? [Allure]

Kristen Stewart Bears An Uncanny Resemblance To Her Mother

Try as we might to deny it, women have way more in common with their mothers than any of us are willing to admit. They also say that if you want to know what a lady will look like when she’s older, take a look at the one she came out of. So when I saw this picture of Kristen Stewart’s mother, Jules, I practically laughed out loud. Look no further: Kristen is the spitting image of her filmmaker mom, from the straight dark hair and light green eyes to the knowing half-smirk, except that I think Jules just might have the upper hand on her famous daughter when it comes to coolness. KStew’s insouciant attitude and offbeat, punky style make much more sense to me now that I see where she’s coming from. [Hollywood Reporter]

8 Celebrity Attachment Parents

Alanis Morissette has something she thinks you oughta know: she intends on breastfeeding her 16-month-old son Ever until he’s ready to stop, saying that the practice will keep him out of therapy. “For me, I protect his safety and his well-being and his attachment,” she told Billy Bush. “That stage of development is a very important stage.” She also said that she’s a fan of co-sleeping as well; “We’re definitely skin-on-skin connected as much as possible,” she said. I can’t say I’m surprised that Alanis is a self-defined attachment parent (AP); after all, her baby daddy is a guy named Souleye. [Celebrity Baby Scoop]

But seriously, I don’t get what all the fuss surrounding AP is all about. Carrying your child in a baby sling as opposed to pushing them in a stroller — so cute! Breastfeeding for as long as you and your kid damn well want to — if mom doesn’t care about a few nipple bites, why should we? Many of the aspects of AP sound pretty okay by me and I wouldn’t be surprised if, when I become a mom, I practice my own modified version. I mean, I’ve been co-sleeping with my dog Lucca since day one.

Here are seven other celebrity parents who practice AP and they don’t give a damn whether you approve or not!

ZOMG I LOVE HER SO MUCH. Tami Taylor, ugh, I mean Connie Britton, the actress who played Tami Taylor, best mom/wife in the history of ever on “Friday Night Lights,” has announced that she adopted a baby boy from Ethiopia! “It was such a wonderful moment of completion,” Britton said of holding baby Yoby in her arms for the first time after a three-year adoption process. “I thought I was going to collapse into a puddle of tears. I was just grinning from ear to ear.”

I find this so inspiring. I want to be a mother so much someday, and women like Connie Britton are a reminder that doing so without a partner is possible. Congrats! [ONTD]
