Harrison Ford Says Liam Has Been An “Unexpected Joy”

Harrison Ford is one of America’s greatest movie stars, having starred in classic films such as Star Wars and the Indiana Jones movies. His latest film, Extraordinary Measures, hits theaters on January 22. The beloved action hero sat down with Parade and discussed his favorite role of all: Fatherhood.

“My children have taught me a lot about parenting,” he says. “My first child was born when I was 25. Babies raising babies is not a pretty sight. I am much better at it now.”

At 67, he has found himself in the unexpected role of being the father figure to a young boy while also being the grandfather of two. Harrison has two sons, Ben, 42, and Willard, 40, by his first wife, Mary Marquardt, and has two children, Malcolm, 22, and Georgia, 18, by his second wife, screenwriter Melissa Mathison. His youngest is 9-year-old Liam, whom he “inherited” when he fell in love with the boy’s mother, actress Calista Flockhart, 45.

When talking about Liam, Ford’s eyes light up. “On the weekends, I do whatever Calista and Liam want to do,” he says. “We’ll take a couple of hours on Sunday morning to go motorcycle riding or go for a hike. I just made a birdhouse with my son.”

Is having a 9-year-old boy at this time in his life an unexpected joy?

Yeah,” Ford nods. “I wasn’t expecting it at all. The unexpected part was certainly true and the joy part is also true. I think Liam was about 6 or 8 months old when I met him and Calista. We have been together ever since.”

Bryce Dallas Howard: Postpartum Depression Was “Shocking”

Bryce Dallas Howard is bravely coming forward about her battle with postpartum depression following the birth of her first child, Theo, in 2007.

It’s brutal. I’m a total optimist and it was shocking to face that; I didn’t expect that at all,” the 28-year-old mother of one star said during a recent appearance on The View. “At first I called it postpartum denial because you’re like, ‘I just feel like a zombie,’ and then it gets worse and worse.”

The young mom admits that she lost herself in her acting roles as a dose of therapy. “Everything I was feeling, I could at least explore it in a character.”

In addition to her artistic outlet, Bryce admits much of her recovery was due to the support she received from her friends and family. “I felt really, really fortunate because I had an incredible support group around me – a lot of women don’t,” she said, and added that it made “all the difference in the world.”

Theo, 2 ½, is Bryce’s first child with husband Seth Gabel.

Giuliana Rancic On Her Fertility Struggles: “There’ve Been Tears”

Although they’re not expecting yet, Giuliana and Bill Rancic are hoping to become parents soon. Last season, the E! host, 35, and the 2004 Apprentice winner, 38, had a pregnancy scare on their Style Network reality show. This experience made them realize they wanted to be parents.

When we first thought I was pregnant, we thought, ‘Oh, I don’t know,'” Giuliana tells Us Weekly. When it turned out it was a false alarm, they went to dinner and “‘Phew’ turned into ‘Let’s have a baby!'”

But the couple – who are hoping for twins – have had problems trying to conceive. “I thought we’d get pregnant right away,” says Giuliana. After eight months of trying, the couple have turned to fertility specialists.

“Their diagnosis: ‘You guys are mid- to late-thirties. Sorry,'” the hopeful-mom-to-be says. “There’ve been tears.” But the painful “process has brought us even closer together,” Giuliana says of her hubby of two years.

Is in vitro fertilization the next step? “Whatever it takes!” Giuliana says. “I envision our life with kids.” Adds Bill: “It’s now or never!”
