In a new interview with Parade magazine, devoted dad-of-two Tobey Maguire says that he’s a family man first. The 34-year-old actor, who has kids Ruby, 3, and Otis, 6 months, with his wife Jennifer Meyer, took time out to talk about the challenges of fame and fatherhood.
On making his kids a priority: “A lot of times I’ll work out of home. But, it can get in the way of being a dad. The kids pop in and I’m in the middle of things so I stop, but I’m not as present as I want to be. Now, I’m thinking I’ve got to put everything away, the computers, phones, BlackBerrys, people bothering you about whatever, and just be like, ‘OK, I’m just a daddy right now. I’m going to eat breakfast with my children, I’m going to play with blocks or toys whatever and just totally be with them.'”

Model turned Baby Phat CEO, Kimora Lee Simmons, and her gorgeous family – hubby Djimon Hounsou, their 6-month-old baby boy Kenzo and Kimora’s two daughters, Ming, 9, and Aoki, 7 – model for their first-ever holiday family portrait in their 40,000-square-foot Saddle River Mansion, one of the largest personal residences in the state of New Jersey. The beautiful family are featured in the next edition of Page Six magazine, free inside the New York Post on December 3.
On making time for her children: “My family is the most important thing to me. I’ve never missed any type of performance—not one recital, not one karate belt. If there’s a toe being tapped or a tune being whistled, I am there. We do everything together. I know we live a little bit of a different life, with all the running around and the TV show, so I want to make sure we’re even more grounded.”
On life with her new husband, and the rumors that their marriage is not legal: “We’re married. That’s all. It happened in Africa, in Benin. The girls were there, and we had a wonderful time. It was very calm, family-motivated and spiritual. Djimon and I enjoy discussing anything from politics to wine, and we have enriching, private, happy, balanced lives together. That’s probably the thing that would shock people most: We do things like go to the grocery store and have fun with our kids. We’re a normal family, doing the best we can.”
Glam songstress Lada Gaga (born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta) goes for more natural look on the cover of the new issue of Elle magazine. In the interview, the 23-year-old Poker Face singer talks about her devotion to her work – and her dreams of a family.
On starting a family: “In eight to 10 years, I want to have babies for my Dad to hold, grandkids. And I want to have a husband who loves and supports me, just the way anyone else does. I would never leave my career for a man right now, and I would never follow a man around.”
On how she reacts to stress: “I get all the symptoms of a pregnant woman. I get headaches, I get tired, I get blurred vision sometimes during a really intense session with [her creative team] the Haus.”
On not using her sexuality: “My album covers are not sexual at all, which was an issue at my record label. I fought for months, and I cried at meetings. They didn’t think the photos were commercial enough… The last thing a young woman needs is another picture of a sexy pop star writhing in sand, covered in grease, touching herself.”
