The Kid-Dish: Nate Berkus Engaged, Celeb Moms Weigh in on “Having it All”

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



– Nate Berkus, the interior designer who used to frequent the Oprah Winfrey show and then got his own, “The Nate Berkus Show,” is engaged to his boyfriend of 9 months, Jeremiah Brent. He popped the question on top of Machu Picchu (natch) and now we’re all hoping for a very well-designed nursery room in the couple’s future. (Just Jared)

– Can celebrity moms have it all? Some recently sounded off on the oft-debated topic, including new mom Drew Barrymore who said, “I can’t and I don’t.” Isla Fisher called “having it all” a total myth, saying, “Whatever you are lucky enough to get should be fabulous enough.” Even Goop queen Gwyneth Paltrow said you can’t have it all, so there’s that.

– Expectant mama Busy Phillips has been on the Hollywood bump watch. Phillips recently said this pregnancy is “harder” than her first, but she’s looking pretty happy here. (Celebrity Baby Scoop)

– Jordan Bratman was spotted hanging out with 5-year-old Max Liron at a Santa Monica park last week. In case you’re not familiar with this Jewish dad, he is the ex-husband of Max’s mom, Christina Aguilera, and therefore totally famous. (Celeb Baby Laundry)
