The Kid-Dish: Pregnant Adele and Parenting Advice From Elizabeth Banks

By at 5:37 pm

All the Jewish celebrity parent gossip you (n)ever wanted to know.

-Hot mamma Elizabeth Banks has learned some quality lessons from 15-month-old son Felix: You’ve got to listen to your little ones. “I let Felix lead me. He is tough, and now that he’s little I follow him around. You should let your kids lead you a little bit and just pay attention.” Looks like Felix has mommy wrapped around his little finger. (People)

-Okay, we know Adele isn’t Jewish, but this is too important not to share. In case you haven’t heard (where have you been hiding?) she’s pregnant! We’re definitely hoping that little baby-A doesn’t take up too much of Mommy’s studio time. (LilSugar)

-A very pregnant Sarah Michelle Gellar and daughter Charlotte Prinze were seen sporting coordinated outfits in Beverly Hills this weekend. Did little Charlotte choose that pink outfit to match Gellar’s groovy glasses? (PopSugar)

-Alyson Hannigan of How I Met Your Mother fame chose the July 4th weekend for her newborn daughter Keeva Jane’s first public appearance. Though pictures of baby Keeva’s actual face have not yet surfaced, sister Satyana was looking pretty cute with her stars and stripes hair clips. (Daily Mail)
