Listen up parents of picky eaters! Once a model for Donna Karan and Calvin Klein, Catherine McCord traded in her stilettos for an apron and headed to culinary school. When her first child was born, the model mom noticed a lack of great recipes for children and she created weelicious. The mom of two – son Kenya, 2 1/2, and daughter Chloe, 8 months – sat down with Celebrity Baby Scoop and dished it out: get your kids involved in the entire process, from the market to the plate! Read below for some great tips on how to get even the pickiest of eaters to enjoy food and hear about Catherine’s journey from the catwalk to the kitchen.
CBS: You are mom to 2 1/2-year-old son Kenya and 8-month-old daughter Chloe. How has motherhood changed you? What is your favorite part of motherhood? Most challenging?
CM: “All the cliches are true. The day I had Kenya, it made me selfless. Before, I was so wrapped up in what was important to me. Now it’s all about what makes my family happy, which in turn makes me happy. Believe me, I have a lot more respect for my mother now that I’m a mother myself. Funny how that happens!
My favorite parts of motherhood are those unplanned moments when my son wraps his arms around my neck and says “I love you so much” or when my daughter crosses a developmental milestone and I’m there to see it happen. That to me is heaven.

Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady‘s new baby boy has plenty of loving relatives. Gisele’s family spoke to People about the new arrival. Gisele’s twin sister Patricia (pictured above) chimed in about her “beautiful” new nephew.
He’s a beautiful, healthy boy,” says Patricia, who was in Boston along with Bündchen’s mother Vania at the time of the birth. “We are all really happy!”
The many Bündchens who weren’t able to make the trip to Boston from the 29-year-old supermodel’s hometown of Horizontina, Brazil, are eagerly awaiting every detail.
We don’t know the name yet. I don’t have all the details. But obviously when someone is born into the family, it makes us all happy,” Gisele’s father, Valdir says. “We are all here in Horizontina, and my wife is there in Boston, so obviously we are a little distant, but we are all immensely happy.” The proud granfather went on to say he can’t wait to meet the little guy. “Obviously I have a huge desire to see my grandson,” he says. “The arrival of a grandson always brings happiness to the grandfather.”

Gavin Rossdale‘s firstborn child, Daisy Lowe, 20, was spotted going for a stroll with her little brother, Kingston Rossdale, 3 1/2, in London on Thursday (December 10).
That’s right, before Kingston and Zuma, there was Daisy! Daisy’s mother is singer/songwriter turned textile and fashion designer, Pearl Lowe. Until 2004, Daisy was believed to be the daughter of Pearl’s ex-husband Bronner Handwerger, but a paternity test revealed that her godfather, Gavin Rossdale, was in fact her biological father.
Pearl wrote about the situation in her book, All That Glitters, where she revealed that Daisy was the product of a one night stand between herself and Rossdale. Gwen Stefani was reportedly furious about the situation which was said to cause some difficulty in their marriage.
Until now, Gavin had reportedly severed all ties with the Lowes. It looks like the families are making amends over the holiday season!

Reality star dad Dean McDermott is looking forward to the holidays! The star of the TV movie Santa Baby 2, who has kids Liam, 2, and Stella, 1, with his wife Tori Spelling and son Jack, 11, from a previous relationship, chatted to Entertainment Tonight about a few of his favorite things about the holiday season.
On his favorite holiday memory: “I have a very funny one. I remember my middle sister Dawn dancing with my dad on Christmas day. My mom was really proud of her white, fake Christmas tree. My dad spun Dawn and they took the tree right out. My mom was pretty steamed, but we all had a good laugh.”
On his and Tori’s family traditions: “We are starting a tradition. Every year we adopt a family and make sure they have presents under the tree and all the things they need for the holiday. Our tradition is to gather our friends and family, lock all the doors and do a lot of nothing. Open the presents and graze all day and have a big turkey dinner at the end of the day.”
