Heidi Klum Launches Mom Website


Heidi Klum must have had a few minutes of free time in her day, and so to fill those minutes, the supermodel mom has launched a new website for moms. Heidi Klum on AOL features experts sharing their best tips on everything mom, from fashion and beauty to fitness and parenting.

Klum spoke recently about her latest project, which is rumored to be a 'seven-figure deal,' with AOL:
" I've been doing my job for over 18 years now, and most of the time people want to know how: How you do this, and how do you do that, and how do you juggle a family life, and what are the fashion trends, with what comb do you brush your hair with ... all kinds of questions from relationships to beauty and lifestyle." Klum adds, "And what I thought would be a good thing to do is team up with a company like AOL, because AOL is my audience. Now I have a bigger platform to share my experts with."
One of the tips the Project Runway host has already shared is about hairbrushes. Klum says her favorite brush to use is Mason Pearson.
"I love it. It is an expensive brush, but I if you take care of it, it will last forever."

Celebrity Mom Toni Collette With Baby Arlo


Toni Collette has protective arms around her new bundle of joy,1 month old son Arlo (born Friday, April 22--Good Friday.)

Collette and hubby David Galafassi are also parents to daughter Sage, who's 3.

Hopefully baby Arlo will make the recent cancellation of his mom's TV show a little easier to take.

Showtime has decided not to renew United States of Tara  after its third season ends this summer. The show, created by Diablo Cody and executive produced by Steven Spielberg, was centered around a family whose mother suffers from a multiple personality disorder. Toni Collette, stars as the housewife, and the actress won an Emmy in 2009 and a Golden Globe in 2010 for her performance on the comedy.

The cancellation news will probably not slow down this busy mommy though-- this year alone, Collette already has three films coming out - Fright Night, Foster and Jesus Henry Christ.

Fergie Not Pregnant ...Yet


Is Fergie pregnant?

No. Not yet, contrary to those baby- on- board rumors lately.

But will she be pregnant soon?

Maybe.

The Black Eyed Peas singer, who certainly did not look to be hiding a baby bump at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday, says she would like to be pregnant soon.
“Oh yeah, of course. Not right this second. Not pregnant, for the record. But, yeah,” Fergie told Hollyscoop.
Fergie has taken time away from her band to spend quality alone time with her hubby, Josh Duhamel.
“We’re taking a break … getting more of that personal time,” she says.
“Josh and I have gotten to spend a lot more time together this year than other years, which is great.”
So, maybe a baby for Fergie....soon...and we can't wait!

Victoria Beckham Shares Stretch Mark Tip


If any "mom- to- be" is not going to put up with stretch marks in her pregnancy, it would be Victoria Beckham! Sunday night the Spice girl took to her Twitter to share her tip for avoiding stretch marks:
"Pregnancy tip!!!! I have used this through every pregnancy, it's amazing!! X VB"
 Beckham was referring to Elemis Japanese Camellia Oil Blend:

(about) For many centuries camellia oil from Japan has been used for the care of nails, hair, scalp and combination skin. This light oil is easily absorbed and rich in plant collagen to keep the skin moisturized and supple, helping to prevent stretch marks.
  • Improves elasticity, supports and nourishes all skin conditions. Lightly textured.
  • Provides high levels of hydration to a dry skin.
  • Ideal to use as a body oil
  • Perfect for pregnancy massage. Helps prevent stretch marks and reduce the formation of scar tissue
  • Use on the cuticles to strengthen nails
  • Ideal for baby massage

So either this stuff really works (if it gets mama spice to tweet about it) or Victoria has some wonderful genes. Either way, we now know she is sporting a stretch mark-free belly!

Victoria's due date is said to be in early July. The Beckhams will be welcoming their first daughter to their family of all boys! In celebration of the upcoming birth, Victoria threw an 'all pink' baby shower recently.

Kelsey Grammer, Camille Grammer : Custody Battle Over Their Kids


Kelsey Grammer has filed for sole physical custody of the two children he has with ex-wife Camille Grammer. Why is the Frasier star trying to take the kids away from Camille? According to custody papers filed by Kelsey last Friday, the children—Mason, 9 and Jude, 6—have been having a tough time emotionally since the split and Kelsey's subsequent new marriage, and he wants them to have a stable environment to live in.

The filing, which offers Camille time with the kids during half of their summer and half of their winter break, asks for the new custody agreement to begin after July 2,

Camille has said that she was willing to work out a shared custody agreement with her ex after their divorce, but he was uncooperative, and she has since been a full-time mother to the children. Now the Real Housewives star says she will fight for full custody of her children:
"She will fight like hell to keep her children with her, being raised by her, exactly where the children wish to be," a close friend of Camille’s told People Magazine.
And Camille is confident that the court will grant her full custody, as Kelsey “abandoned his family and got married within months of separating from Camille, all of which speaks volumes about his parenting and his respect for his current children."
"Camille looks forward to a full and complete professional evaluation," the friend adds, "which she is more than confident will show her to be the more appropriate person to be primarily responsible for the custody of the children."
Grammer currently lives in Chicago while Camille resides in Los Angeles, where their two children attend school. When contacted by the press, Grammer's rep declined to comment on the matter, except to say that "any statement would be inappropriate. The filing speaks for itself."

A hearing is set for June 27.

Due Date: Ivanka Trump


Pregnant with her first baby, Ivanka Trump has divulged her due date: July 14! And the baby is a girl! Trump, the daughter of Donald Trump, shared her baby news in the June issue of Harper's Bazaar.

The first time mom-to-be also talks about cravings, baby books and how she is getting ready for baby:
“I do have a bit of first-time-mom syndrome,” she admits, chuckling over the piles of books on pregnancy, mothering, and early-childhood development she’s assigned herself.
“I’m already on what I should be doing when she is three and when I should introduce new languages,” including French and Mandarin Chinese.
Ivanka admits that keeping her daughter from getting spoiled will be a bit challenging, but she and husband, Jared Kushner, plan to ensure their "daughter is grounded and not spoiled."

The Celebrity Apprentice judge also chats about breastfeeding and her surprise at how often newborn babies nurse:
“I was in total shock,” Trump says. “I work so close [to home] that I figured I’d return to work and the baby nurse would bring the baby to me, and I’d run home periodically, and I’d make it work. But every two hours? That’s a whole other level,” she says. “I’ll have to make a nursery at the office.”
And that nursery may be in use for quite some time-

“I’d love to have three or four kids,” says Trump. “But my mom always says, ‘Speak to me after you have your first.’”

Celebrity Moms: Rebecca Romijn Talks About The Terrible Twos


Celebrity Mom Rebecca Romijn,38, enjoyed a day out with her husband, actor Jerry O’Connell, and their 2-year-old twin daughters Charlie and Dolly in Malibu, Calif. last Sunday (Mother's Day!)

Rebecca recently chatted with People about motherhood and the terrible twos:
“It’s equal parts absolutely adorable and absolutely horrible!” the model-turned-actress, 38, says, adding “Right now, I think the whole job of being a 2-year-old is just trying to get as sick as often as possible to build up your immune system,” she joked while attending the Global Action Forum Gala in Beverly Hills. “It’s been three months of fevers, colds and vomiting.”
Being a dad of twins has made O'Connell do something he had once sworn he would not do: dress his twins in identical outfits. “I just can’t help myself,” the Defenders star, 36,  tells Scholastic Parent & Child in their Dec./Jan. issue. 

And both parents agree that their twin daughters have distinct individual traits when it comes to their personalities:
“One is outgoing and one is shy,” according to O’Connell, with Romijn adding, “one is a little wilder and more of a daredevil, and the other is more careful.”


Terrible Two's aside, those are two adorable little girls and one handsome looking family!
