Is TV trainer Jillian Michaels ready to take time out for motherhood?
The 36-year-old star of The Biggest Loser tells Women’s Health magazine that she definitely wants to be a mom – though she’s not too eager to be pregnant.
“I’m going to adopt. I can’t handle doing that to my body,” she says, adding, “Also, when you rescue something, it’s like rescuing a part of yourself.”
For now she has another project to focus on: Her new daytime show, Losing It With Jillian. She’ll be traveling the country, helping families find ways to be healthier and happier.
“It’s about rebooting your life,” she explains. “The more people are able to see a truer picture, the easier it will be to get a message across”
Jillian doesn’t have kids of her own just yet, but she is godmother to her friend Vanessa Marcil‘s 8-year-old son Kassius Marcil-Green.
Supermodel Gisele Bündchen and her hunky football star hubby Tom Brady just welcomed their first child together, baby Benjamin, in December 2009. The Brazilian beauty told UK’s Hello! magazine that she’s hoping for more kids – and lots of them – regardless of what might happen to her perfect body.
I want to have lots of children. It doesn’t matter if my body changes. It is the most marvelous thing. For example, they sometimes say that your breasts begin to sag, but I couldn’t care less.”
Somehow we feel she has nothing to worry about! On regaining her figure so quickly after Benjamin’s birth, Gisele, 29, said, “I think it’s muscle memory. I did kung fu up until two weeks before Benjamin was born, and yoga three days a week. I think a lot of people get pregnant and decide they can turn into garbage disposals. I was mindful about what I ate, and I gained only 30 pounds.”

Kate Gosselin is still Dancing With The Stars, however, the mom-of-eight is fairly certain she will not be making it to the end, though her children aren’t so sure. The reality-show mom told Ryan Seacrest via US Weekly, “I was in the bathroom the other day with [5-year-old sextuplets] Hannah and Alexis, and Alexis said, ‘I hope you get voted through, Mommy. I hope you win!’,” Kate then added, “I said, ‘Oh, Lexi, really, I’m not gonna win. The other dancers are a lot better than Mommy.’ And Hannah said, ‘No, they’re not. You’re the best!'”

It has been two months since news broke of Matthew Settle and wife Naama Nativ’s split, and the Gossip Girl dad is experiencing the lingering emotional pain that comes with it. The actor revealed to People how he is coping, saying, “I’m not enjoying it … it’s tough.”
Settle, who recently shared the small things he misses most about his family life, adds that he is unsure of the custody situation with 1-year-old daughter Aven. He revealed, “Until the divorce is over, it’s tough to know how much time I’m going to spend with [1-year-old daughter] Aven and how the chips are going to fall. So I hope for the best.”
Like many divorced couples with children, Settle says that he and Nativ plan to do what’s best for their daughter, adding, “I think that we’ll be good co-parents. And we’ll do the best we can.”
Settle, 40, and Israel-born actress/model Nativ, 26, eloped in a small ceremony in 2006.

First-time mom Ellen Pompeo seems to radiate serenity these days. The Grey’s Anatomy star welcomed daughter, Stella Luna, with husband Chris Ivery in September, and to complete their new life with baby, the couple purchased a fab 1920’s Spanish-style home! In an interview with Elle Decor, Pompeo spoke about the family feel of her new home, saying,
This house is perfect for our family. It’s all about swimming, eating, and hanging out with friends. Martyn [interior designer] jokes that we live like college kids—people are coming and going all the time. What can I say? It’s a happy place.
The 40-year-old actress recently revealed her hopes for her daughter, saying, “I hope Stella has more self-confidence than I did as a child. Because when you believe in yourself and have a strong sense of self-worth, you don’t look for validation from others.”
Pompeo and Ivery have been married since 2007.

Christina Aguilera says she feels sexier since welcoming son Max in January 2008, Us reports.
I’m more confident and comfortable in my own skin. I think I’m even a more sexual Christina,” the singer, who wed husband Jordan Bratman four years ago, said.
“That’s part of the change of having a child for me — seeing your body do these things you never thought possible,” adds Aguilera, whose new album Bionic hits the shelves on June 8. “When you have a baby, you go through a period where your body is not your own. It becomes for your child and that’s it. Once you bounce back from that and kind of get your body back… I feel better than ever. It’s a great feeling.”
