Gavin Rossdale & His Boat Boy

Rockers Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale took their two children – Kingston, 3 1/2, and Zuma, 16 months – for a boat ride in Gustavia, St. Barts on New Year’s Day. Zuma looked so content in his daddy’s arms as the gorgeous duo docked the boat.

The night before, Gwen rang in the New Year with some famous friends at the private party of Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich. The 40-year-old Don’t Speak singer sang an hour-long set to the likes of Lindsay Lohan, Orlando Bloom and his girlfriend Miranda Kerr, Marc Jacobs, Linda Evangelista, and fellow vacationing celeb parent, Jon Bon Jovi.

Maggie Gyllehnaal On The Sacrifices Of Motherhood

As both a mom and an actress, Maggie Gyllehaal says she sometimes feels torn in two very different directions.

“Being a mother forces me to be so responsible. I’m very protective, and I try to keep (Ramona) out of this Hollywood stuff,” Maggie tells USA Today. “But I make mistakes. I have that tug of wanting things that feel good to me and trying to figure out in what ways I have to sacrifice and what ways she has to sacrifice. I haven’t been perfect at that.”

The 32-year-old actress, whose daughter Ramona is 3, calls her decision to sign on to her latest film, Crazy Heart, selfish – but is quick to add that she doesn’t regret it.

Jenna Elfman’s Blooming Baby Bump

Gorgeous! An expectant Jenna Elfman was photographed at the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City for an appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman on Monday (January 4). Jenna looked stunning in a striped top and black coat. And not to mention those shoes!

Jenna recently said that her 2-year-old son Story Elias is anxiously awaiting the arrival of his little brother.

He’s wonderful. He gives the baby hugs and kisses and he says ‘Out!’ like he wants the baby to come.”

The 38-year-old Accidentally on Purpose star and her husband Bodhi Elfman are expecting their second son in March.

What do you do when Santa spoils the neighbors’ kids more than yours?


“Mom, next year can Santa bring us what he gave Madison?”

What do you say?

I replied to Julia, “Well, Santa brings everyone different things… we’ll just have to see what he brings next year.”

She seemed to be distracted enough, accepted the answer and ran off to continue playing. I was lucky this time!

The funny thing is that Santa’s big gift to Madison and her sister Avery was a play kitchen from OUR OWN online toy store. LOL

It’s actually a toy kitchen that I’ve wanted to buy for Julia since she was a baby, but never did because our townhouse is so small and already stuffed full of toys.

Since Janice and I own two online toy stores, Julia and Sophia are already a little spoiled with items from our stores… a pedal car, balance bikes, rocking toys, an art easel, a cool kitchen helper safety stand that lets them help cook and wash dishes and more.

Basically, trying to not spoil your kids when you sell awesome toys is tough!

I constantly dream of a bigger house just so I can give them more toys. But, luckily we are limited to a tiny townhouse and we have reached full capacity.

I especially try not to overdo gifts at Christmas because I feel it is important to focus on the real meaning of the season. I do let Santa come and bring a decent amount of gifts to unwrap, but I don’t like to let Santa go completely wild. Click Here to Finish Reading at 5 Minutes for Mom.

The Early Show’s Maggie Rodriguez Expecting Second Child

The Early Show’s Maggie Rodriguez is expecting baby no. 2, reports US Magazine.

“The cat is out of the bag: I’m four months pregnant,” she announced Monday on her show. “I’m feeling very pregnant!”

The 40-year-old co-anchor, whose husband is Telemundo marketing executive Michael Rodriguez, says her official due date is July 1, but she thinks she’ll pop before then, “I don’t think I’ll make it,” she joked, showing off her baby bump. “This is not July. This is tomorrow. I grew over the holidays!”

Maggie and Michael, who will find out the sex of their baby “in a few weeks”, are also parents to 4-year-old Daniella, who is looking forward to the arrival of her sibling: “She is so excited,” says the proud mom. “She keeps asking, ‘Why does it take so long for the baby to come out?”

Angel Dear: Soft & Snuggly Accessories

Blankets and stuffed animals are always a source of comfort to young ones, but what if you could have an all-in-one? Angel Dear Blankies are sweet charming characters that are cashmere-soft and oh so lightweight! The 14″ square is available in a huge assortment of fun characters in soft colors. Harlow Madden was spotted carrying hers while just recently, Gwyneth Paltrow was seen clutching 2 of these cuddly creatures while holding her son Moses.

If you prefer a larger size of these blankies check out the Animal Napping Blankets. They are great as stroller blankets and for naps in the car. Both the blankies and blankets are made of the softest cashmere-like polyester which does not pile and washes up beautifully. I have thrown both blankets in the washing machine and dryer a few times already and both of them feel just as soft as when I received them.

Angel Dear is an expert when it comes to soft, cuddly comfort! Their Chenille hoodies are deliciously soft and warm enough to wear as a jacket during the spring or fall seasons. They come in a wide assortment of colors and sizes from 6 months-4T.

Maxine Bahnes, Kelly Rutherford and Nicole Richie just a few of the many fans of Angel Dear!

Petit is offering CBS readers an exclusive 20% discount off all store items! Just enter code “cbscoop” upon checkout.
