The Kid-Dish: When Your Kids Don’t Know Why Photographers are Following You

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

If you live in Los Angeles (or have any status-happy Facebook friends that live in Los Angeles), you’re well aware that this weekend brought a whole bunch of rain to La La Land. Luckily for parents, that means dressing your kids in adorable raincoats, like Adam Sandler’s daughters Sadie, 4, and Sunny, 2, spotted here. Matching rain boots for the win! (Celebrity Baby Scoop)

– Like many celebrity parents, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin did not want their young children to know about their parents’ super stardom. Unfortunately, one of 6-year-old Apple’s schoolmates let the cat of the bag about her mom being in magazines. Jack Black is also keeping his profession a secret from his kids, Sammy, 4, and Thomas, 2, by telling them he’s a salesman. Facing a similiar issue? Jenna Jameson. (BabyRazzi).

– Actress Winona Ryder has come out and said that she doesn’t want any children because she fears it would ruin her career. I would maybe suggest not getting caught shoplifting if you don’t want to ruin your career, but hey, that’s just me. If she hasn’t been following all the celebrity baby blogs to see how plenty of stars manage to have big, happy families while maintaining their celebrity status, she could at least take a hint from our leading lady, Mayim Bialik, on how it’s done!

– In weird headline news, “Paul Rudd Puts Bar in Basement for Son“. OK, so it’s really just in honor of his son, Jack Sullivan, whose Irish-sounding name inspired Rudd’s father to build a pub named Sullivan’s in his own home. Rudd followed suit, so now 5-year-old Jack has two bars with free-flowing Guinness in his honor. Rudd better gear up for some tricky parenting battles once that kid’s a teenager. (BabyRazzi)
