It’s a great time to be Kendra Wilkinson, she’s got a hit television show, a New York Times best-seller (Sliding Into Home) and a devoted husband in football player Hank Baskett. While attending the Espys, Kendra spoke to People about the other source of joy in her life: 7-month-old Hank Jr., her first child!
Kendra says Hank has achieved a very special first, she taught him how to “high-five!” Hank says that the little one is now obsessed with high-fiving; “All I hear in the room is, ‘High-five, high five! Yeahhh! That’s all I hear all day long.”
Things are going so well Kendra and Hank may add another player to their team. Kendra coyly told People she and Hank were “thinking” about having another baby, and added that “maybe next summer” would be the right time.

Actor James Brolin has a surprising new project: he is the executive producer of Standing Ovation, a musical aimed at the 13 and under set. He spoke with Parade.com about the film, his kids, and his famous son, Josh Brolin.
On why it’s important to teach your kids the arts:
“My daughter is 22, and I remember when I was taking her to her little ballet and jazz classes and it was so important. And I love being a part of that. Being a parent, having been a parent, it really runs deep in your soul.”
On what he and son Josh Brolin talk about:
“With him, he’s very, very private about things. I think he likes to surprise himself, so if he goes and talks to other people about it, the surprise is kind of gone. Josh likes a lot of private rehearsals, but no rehearsals in front of everybody. He likes to just run the words and just get up and do it in front of the camera so there’s a surprise element. ”
His advice on building a successful marriage:
“Kindness and honesty with grace. You can’t lie to anybody, you have to let them know what’s going on in your mind and be very graceful about it and polite. And I think that’s the key. But anybody who has literally ongoing nagging problems, I always say get a tune-up. Find the greatest mediator, a shrink, the guy from your church, whatever. And every once in a while sit there and have a difficult conversation about all the unsaid things. And by the end of it you’re going to be so close it’s unreal. I almost think that nobody can do it alone. And yet people always do that, they go it alone and half of marriages end up in a bad situation. And it’s really all about communication and forgiveness.”

Angelina Jolie takes adventure to an extreme when it comes to her action flick roles, but the 35-year-old Salt star says nothing can compare with motherhood.
“I fly planes, ride bikes with Brad and travel to uncharted territories but the greatest adventure of all is having children,” says the mother-of-6. “Our kids are very much a part of everything we do.”
Angie, who is mom to Maddox, 8, Pax, 6, Zahara, 5, Shiloh, 4, and 2-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne with partner Brad Pitt, 46, says she’s always had an adventurous streak and is pleased to see this trait coming out in her children: “I was always fearless and now I have those fearless kids – Pax and Shiloh.”
I had a very strong mother. She was the kindest and most loving person I had ever known in my life and her faith and integrity were so strong they were unbreakable. I now live with three very strong women – my daughters Zahara, Shiloh and Vivienne.

Her stint on the popular drama 24 came to an end with the show’s last episode this Spring, but Mary Lynn Rajskub has an interesting new project to keep her busy.
The Michigan-born actress, who has 1-year-old son Valentino with her husband Matthew Rolph, is the star of a one-woman show in Hollywood with the saucy title, “Mary Lynn Raksjub Spreads Her Legs.” Inspired by her own experiences as a mom, the show takes a funny and honest look at pregnancy and new motherhood.
“My first three months of motherhood weren’t pretty,” she admits. “I just needed five hours of sleep in a row. I remember my son waking me up in the middle of the night and thinking that I should just call the police.”
Mary Lynn, who got her start as a stand-up comic, says of her new gig, “I love getting a reaction from the audience – both the laughter and tears. The show is bawdy, but it’s real issues I’m grappling with and most people can relate.”

I wouldn’t say they drive me nuts all the time. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don’t. It always depends on the day and where we are and what we’re doing. [When we’re at the park] the other moms always give me the stink eye, and then I feel bad. So half of the time I will just leave and go somewhere else. You don’t feel too good about those moments when you get stink eye from all the other moms. And the thing is, we don’t understand half of the time what is so interesting about the same photos of us at the park. My children are just like other children too and they love going to the park.”
