As the year draws to a close, we though it would be a great idea to check in with some of the new moms we followed who gave birth this year! Here is part one:
Courtney and Mario Lopez debuted their new 10-week old son Dominic on the Ellen DeGeneres show. (above) During the segment they revealed that they had no clue the baby was a boy until his birth and they had a small army in the delivery room. What a gorgeous family. Dominic has dad’s eyes! Looks great! Here is a clip from the show:
Phaedra Parks is back on the small screen starring in the 6th season of Real Housewives of Atlanta. She has done an amazing job using the techniques from her Phine Body video series to get her body toned down and in pre-baby shape.
She did stir some noise and ruffle some feathers when she referred to her castmate Kenya Moore‘s fertility struggles as a case of “Scrambled Eggs” . Ouch! Coming from a Fertile Myrtle, she’ll have to go sit in time-out for that uber insensitive retort.
Tia Mowry Hardrict’s Nick Mom sitcom Instant Mom was picked up for a second season, the Hollywood Reporter reports. The show, where Mowry Hardrict plays young party girl Stephanie who has to give up her partying lifestyle when she inherits her new husband’s kids & responsibilities and has to step up to the plate and adjust. I’ve seen a few episodes and found them hilarious. Mowry Hardrict’s comedic timing is spot on and I love her character and the actor, Damarr Calhoun, who plays her youngest step-son Aaron is a break out star but Tylen Jacob Williams as the middle kid (James) is also comedic gold. Sherly Lee Ralph as Stephanie’s hip “glam-mom”, Maggie, is genius. The veteran actresses’ chops shine bright. The chemistry of the cast is clear and they work and it makes sense the show is doing well. Congrats!
Ever since she and sister Tamera Mowry-Housley launched their parenting/mom line of products under the name Need Brands, they’ve also been pretty busy participating in various campaigns. We featured Mowry-Housley’s role in the Little Nose campaign about minimizing our complex and digital lives, “Say Yes to Less.” And next week, Mowry-Housley will be online as part of the @Duracell and @MomCentral‘s #PowerASmile Twitter Chat on Tuesday, December 3 at 1pm ET. Two pre-party and 6 party winners will be randomly seleted to receive a $50 gift code, Duracell batteries and a Hasbro toy every ten minutes during the chat.
