December 23, 2020

The year is wrapping up. It’s hard to believe that it’s almost time to say goodbye to 2020. While you sit back and reflect on everything that’s happened, take a break with some celebrity mom and check out the latest!

Amy Schumer’s “Stolen” Holiday Card

When Amy Schumer shared her holiday card on Instagram, her followers did a double-take. The comedian captioned the photo: “Gene and I wanted to wish everyone a happy holiday season. Enjoy it with whatever family members are talking to you this year. 🕎” 

It didn’t take long for her celebrity friends to start reacting to the post. While America Ferrera simply shared a crying laughing emoji, Debra Messing wrote, “I prefer you as a blonde. 😘.” Why was the holiday card so funny? Neither Schumer, nor her one-year-old son were pictured. Instead, the comedian had reshared an image from Hilaria Baldwin’s feed. 

The original photo shows Hilaria, a mother of five, and her new baby (whom she shares with husband, Alec Baldwin), Eduardo. Just three months postpartum, the yoga instructor looks svelte in a black bra and underwear in the image that she captioned: “Post bath, getting ready for the day photo by Carmen ✨…can’t stop smelling this baby 😂!” 

Regaining our bodies and finding ways to practice self-care can take time after having a baby, so hopefully moms can be happy for Hilaria, laugh with Schumer, and be gentle with themselves.

Lauren Burnham’s Rainbow Baby

Like many women, Lauren Burnham suffered a miscarriage earlier this year. She and husband, Arie Luyendyk Jr., sadly shared the news, but six months later, a lot has changed. The couple, who married in 2019 after appearing together on The Bachelor, are now expecting their second child! 

Over the weekend, Luyendyk posted a sweet family picture that included their 1-year-old daughter and a sign that reads, “Big Sister, July 2021.” In the caption, he wrote, “And then 2020 completely redeemed itself!” 

Meanwhile, Burnham posted a video of the growing family. While her burgeoning baby bump makes an appearance, the pair’s daughter, Alessi, steals the show while wearing a “Big sister” t-shirt. The mother-to-be shared that she’s been “crying on and off for the past 3 months” and is “So so grateful.” 

Kelly Clarkson’s Reflections

Ahead of the holidays, Kelly Clarkson took a few fan questions to help them find ways to avoid some awkward (but admittedly funny) family situations. “I do Christmas with my Dad’s not-so-fun side of the family,” the singer read on her talk show. “This year I used quarantine as an excuse to go with my mom’s side by telling my aunt we were staying home and then accidentally put her in a group chat about ‘going with the fun ones.’ Am I going to hell?”

After having a good laugh, Clarkson said, “No, but you are in so much trouble! Here’s the thing: don’t lie. Just own it. And then be like—look, maybe this is your opportunity to become the fun ones, you know? Just own it. You can’t lie. In that situation you just gotta be like, ‘Sorry, it was a turd statement. I do stand by it, but yeah. Maybe let’s do something to turn it around.’ A family game maybe, I don’t know. You dug that hole and now you’re just sitting in it. Happens to the best of us.”

Clarkson, who shares River Rose, 6, and Remington Alexander, 4, with her estranged husband Brandon Blackstock, also praised adults who use coloring books and do crafts. “I love making stuff, not only just because it’s fun to create something, but also it’s like therapeutic. You’re just sitting there, like when I color with my kids. Yeah, I’m doing it because they love it and they asked me to do it, but also, it’s like really soothing. Oddly.”
