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

It’s a weaning process. Honestly, when I posted the video I was not thinking, so maybe I was like Cher.” Clueless reference for the win! (Celeb Baby Laundry)

On her blog, Tori Spelling poses the important question: At what age is it appropriate to start talking to your kids about religion? Spelling writes: “This morning I walked into the kids’ room and I heard Liam and Stella talking to each other. Liam said to Stella “you’re a Jewish” and Stella said, “No Liam, you’re a Jewish.” I must admit, that’s pretty cute. (ediTORIal)

Maggie Gyllenhaal was spotted with her mother, her husband Peter Sarsgaard, and their 5-year-old daughter Ramona walking through the streets of Brooklyn on Sunday. The article headline reads “Easter Fun in Brooklyn,” but I’m pretty sure they meant to say Passover Fun. (Celebrity Baby Scoop)
