The Kid-Dish: Rachel Zoe, Skinny and Pregnant

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

– Did you guys know actress Amanda Peet is Jewish? Jewish mother, Quaker father–who would have thought? Here she is with 3 1/2-year old Frankie, which is maybe the cutest name ever, besides Peet’s  5-month old daughter Molly (a personal favorite of mine.) (Babyrazzi)

– Daws–I mean James Van Der Beek–who married Kimberly Brook at a Kaballah Center in the holy land this August, just became a first-time father to Olivia on Saturday. The birth was announced to the world as all important milestones should be announced: with a tweet! I mean really, he tweeted his wedding announcement, too. (People)

– Hollywood stylist-to-the-stars Rachel Zoe is three months pregnant with her first child. Most people are concerned about how her crazy skinny figure will hold a child, but I’m more worried about how the sentence, “OK! reveals that the 39-year-old has only shared the happy news with those close to her,” makes any sense when posted on the internet. (Celebrity Baby Scoop)

– Actor Liev Schreiber was spotted with his 3-year old son Sasha in New York City on Saturday. Then the lucky duck got to hang out with DJ Lance Rock at the Yo Gabba Gabba! concert on Sunday at Radio City Music Hall. Celebrity kids get all the fun. (Celebrity Baby Scoop & Star)
