Jennifer Garner & Smiley Samuel

Look, ma!

Actress Jennifer Garner carried her son Samuel, 19 months, as they walked out of a doctor’s office in Brentwood, Calif. on Wednesday (September 25). The adorable tot was seen smiling and pointing at the nearby paparazzi.

Later that same day, the 13 Going on 30 star did a Starbucks run with her 4-year-old daughter Seraphina. The pretty preschool was skipping and smiling while eating a banana alongside her famous mama.

While Samuel looked happy to see the shutterbugs, on Tuesday Gov. Jerry Brown of California  signed into law a bill that “will make it a misdemeanor to attempt to photograph or videotape a child in a harassing manner if the image is being taken because the child’s parent is a celebrity or public official,” according to the Los Angeles Times.

While the current penalties for harassment is up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000, the new penalty in addition to the misdemeanor will be up to one year in jail and a possible fine of $10,000.

“I don’t want a gang of shouting, arguing, law-breaking photographers who camp out everywhere we are, all day every day, to continue traumatizing my kids,” Jennifer testified before the California State Assembly in August.

“We are not just whiny celebrities that many times people think we are,” Halle Berry added. “We’re moms here, who are just trying to protect our children.”

“Kids shouldn’t be tabloid fodder nor the target of ongoing harassment,” Sen. Kevin de Leon said, adding his bill “will give children, no matter who their parent is, protection from harassers who go to extremes to turn a buck.”

    Uh no they don’t have eyes like him. This kid almost looks half Asian.

    Actually Samuel’s eyes are just pushed half-closed by those adorable chubby cheeks! When he loses his baby chub, they will most likely appear much larger.

    Very adult of all of you to make fun of the way a child looks. Grow up.

    I do not understand everybody’s obsession with saying how ugly this toddler is every time he appears on this site. He is an average little kid, there is nothing stunning nor nothing “ugly” about him at all. I can guarantee you most normal people would say he’s a cute kid. I honestly am so confused as to why everyone loves to say how ugly he is. I highly doubt all of you have model’s as children. Grow up.
