Screen Shot 2013-12-09 at 10.46.40 AM

On Saturday (December 7), celebrities – such as Denise Richards, Tori Spelling, Jensen Ackles, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ali Landry, Busy Philipps, Gilles Marini – and their families attended the 3rd Annual Santa’s Secret Workshop.

Presented by Bill Horn and Scout Masterson (a.k.a. The Guncles) of Marque Communications, the festive event was held at the Andaz Hotel in West Hollywood, Calif. and kicked off Hollywood’s holiday season by bringing celebrities and VIPs together for a day of family fun.

“We love hosting Santa’s Secret Workshop each year because it’s become a way for our friends, and their families, to gather together for the holidays,” Horn tells Celebrity Baby Scoop. “We also love that everyone gets the opportunity to give back by donating to L.A. Family Housing.”

In the giving spirit of the holidays, the event benefited L.A. Family Housing, whose mission is to help families transition out of homelessness and poverty through a continuum of housing enriched with supportive services.

Families were seen visiting with Santa Claus against a winter scene filled with snow. Kids kept busy creating crafts, getting glitter tattoos, and cookie decorating with dessert-ista, Jenny Cookies, who returned for the third year in a row to create the event’s one-of-a-kind sweets.

Event décor was courtesy of Jo-Ann Fabric and Crafts, and was styled by Sybarite Designs. Santa’s photo room was styled by Kara’s Party Ideas. Some of those on hand showcasing their latest products included Corolle, Stokke, Orbit Baby, Ergo Baby, Ju-Ju-Be, ZoLi Baby, Diaper Dude, Diono, First Bike, Mabels Labels, Sugarbooger, Smarty Pants Vitamins, Summer Infant, and Joovy.

Celebrity guests in attendance included Tori Spelling (“Beverly Hills, 90210”), Busy Philipps (“Cougar Town”), Sarah Michelle Gellar (“The Crazy Ones”) & Freddie Prinze, Jr. (“24”), DeAnna Pappas (“Bachelorette”), Denise Richards (“Twisted”), Tammin Sursok (“Pretty Little Liars”), Malin Akerman (“Trophy Wife”) , Tiffani Thiessen (“White Collar”), Sasha Alexander (“Rizzoli & Isles”), Lisa Ling (“The View”), Dan Bucatinsky (“Scandal”), Beverley Mitchell (“7th Heaven”), Melissa Joan Hart (“Melissa & Joe”), Phaedra Parks (“Real Housewives of Atlanta”), Gilles Marini (“Switched at Birth”), Sara Rue (“Malibu Country”), Sean Murray (“NCIS”), Jensen Ackles (“Supernatural”), Tamera Mowry-Housley (“The Real”), Tiffany Thornton (“So Random!”), Amanda Righetti (“The Mentalist”), Anna Trebunskaya (“Dancing With the Stars”), Donald Faison (“The Exes”), Alana De La Garza (“Law & Order”), Ali Landry (“Hollywood Girls Night”), Michelle Monaghan (Made of Honor), Molly Ringwald (“Secret Life of An American Teenager”), Sarah Drew (“Gray’s Anatomy”), Aubrey Anderson-Emmons (“Modern Family”), Cuttino Mobley (retired NBA player), Eric Ladin (“Boardwalk Empire”), Galen Gering (“Days of Our Lives”), Jennifer Aspen (“GCB”), Jessica St. Clair (Bridesmaids), Kelly Overton (“True Blood”), Kelly Stables (“The Exes”), Kristina Guerrero (“E! News”), Lex Medlin (“Drop Dead Diva”), Lindsay Sloane (Horrible Bosses), Lisa Loeb (musician), Samantha Harris (“Entertainment Tonight”), Mark Deklin (“GCB”), Marla Sokoloff (“The Practice”), Marsha Thomason (“White Collar”), Rosa Blasi (“Strong Medicine”), Christie Lynn Smith (“General Hospital”), Jamie Allman (“The Killing”), and Chudney Ross among others.

Ali Landry: “Marcelo Might Be Tougher To Get Ready” For New Baby


Actress and model Ali Landry, 39, covers the August edition of The Bump and opens up about family life with husband Alejandro Gomez Monteverde and their two kids – daughter Estela, nearly 6, and son Marcelo, 20 months – and her third pregnancy.

On her kids being ready for the new baby: “I think Estela’s ready because she already has a little brother, so she knows what she’s in for. We were at the doctor’s office, and the doctor said, “How do you like your little brother?” She said, “He pulls my hair.” Then the doctor asked, “So what do you think about having a new brother?” And she’s like, “I’m going to be bald.” So I think she knows that double-trouble is coming. Marcelo might be tougher to get ready. He wants to be with me all the time, and he’s very much still a baby. When I’m around, he clings to me. I might have to call in some of my expert mommy friends to help navigate our way through this.”

On her third pregnancy: “During my other two pregnancies, my skin glowed. But this time around, I got melasma [aka the mask of pregnancy]. I learned it’s really important to have a great sunscreen and protect your skin as much as possible. I wear a hat whenever I’m outside with the kids now.”

On her best maternity fashion tips: “Part of me wants to wake up in the morning and throw on a big pair of pants — probably my husband’s — and a sweatshirt. But when I do that, I look in the mirror and I just don’t feel good about myself. So I really try to pull it all together, and I do feel so much better. It’s important to get a great pair of maternity jeans. Right now, skinny jeans are all the rage, so find a pair that’s flattering and really comfortable. I buy a lot of non-maternity tops that look stylish with my skinny jeans. This time around, I got some shirts that button down for easy access for nursing, so I can get plenty of wear out of them after the baby arrives. A well-fitted maxi dress with a great statement piece of jewelry is always really comfortable — and it looks flattering and put-together.”

Ali Landry & Estela: Pretty Pair

*EXCLUSIVE* Pregnant Ali Landry and Estela are a cute duo

Gorgeous girls!

Expectant mama Ali Landry and daughter Estela, nearly 6, were photographed in Los Angeles, Calif. on Thursday (June 27). Looking radiant in a tie-dye maxi maternity dress and hat, Ali held hands with her smiley girl after dance class. 

“Princess charm school dance camp recital was amazing,” the actress captioned a photo via Instagram. “So proud of Estela!”

The former beauty queen, 39, and husband Alejandro Gomez Monteverde – who are also parents to 20-month-old son Marcelo – expect their second son within weeks.

“I am about two weeks away from my due date, and I actually really enjoy being pregnant and I enjoy the birth process,” Ali shared with Celebrity Baby Scoop. “I love the whole thing. It’s been wonderful. The only thing that is a little different with this pregnancy is that I am running around after two children instead of one.”

Ali Landry: “I Actually Really Enjoy Being Pregnant”


Former Miss USA Ali Landry reprised her role as the face and “belly” of Palmer’s stretch mark products. The Hollywood mom, who just celebrated her third baby shower, posed for the ads with her two children, Estela, almost 6, and Marcelo, 20 months.

Ali opens up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about her role as “spokes-belly’ for Palmer’s stretch mark products and how her third pregnancy is going. She also shared a major baby shower highlight: getting foot massages from handsome Manly Handz representatives!

CBS: You reprised your role as the face and “spokes-belly” for Palmer’s stretch mark products.  Could you tell us about your role?

AL: “I did pretty much what I did last time; my belly is growing at a rapid rate, and Palmer’s products are really keeping those stretch marks at bay. I became a fan of Palmer’s products when I was pregnant with my daughter. I was looking through magazines and there were all these ads featuring some of my celebrity mom friends who were pregnant at the time. I thought to myself, ‘Oh my gosh, they look so great pregnant! How brave of them to actually show off their bellies! I should really try these products.’

I started using Palmer’s products and really loved them. They moisturized my skin like no other product did. When I became pregnant with my son, I partnered with Palmer’s to do a campaign. I was so excited! Now I am on my third pregnancy and my children are in the spot. Our whole family uses Palmer’s products and we love them. I am ecstatic to work with them again!”

CBS: We heard your children joined you in the ads this year. Tell us more!

AL: “The ads basically promote healthy skin and showcase the stretch mark products, but you can use Palmer’s products whether or not you’re pregnant. It’s really just a regimen. I layer all of my products and encourage you to try them if you haven’t. Trust me, your skin will be more moisturized than ever before. I have products for my kids as well as my husband. They are wonderful.

I did the commercial with my little girl, who’s almost six years old, and my son, who was in my belly the last time I did the campaign. [laughs] They are actually in the spot this time, which is really exciting. The ads are also going to be in print, so the kids will see themselves in magazines.”

CBS: How is your third pregnancy going? How is it different from your other two? With the last two being ‘biters,’ will you give breastfeeding another try?

AL: “It’s going great! I am about two weeks away from my due date, and I actually really enjoy being pregnant and I enjoy the birth process. I love the whole thing. It’s been wonderful. The only thing that is a little different with this pregnancy is that I am running around after two children instead of one.

I shot the same commercial with Palmer’s just two years ago, so Marcelo is still very much a baby and wants me to hold him all the time. Sometimes that is tough, because I am carrying an extra twenty pounds and a baby inside, and then I have one sitting on top of the belly. That can sometimes be a little difficult.

In regard to whether I will give breastfeeding another try, of course I will. I think it will be tough this time, because my son is so young and he’s very attached to me. However, the bond you create with your child while you’re nursing is incredible. I would not want to deprive this child of that, because the other two siblings have had it. It definitely has its challenges, because it’s a commitment on the mother’s part. However, there are so many wonderful benefits to breastfeeding as well.”

CBS: You just had your baby shower. Please share some of the highlights

AL: “The baby shower was wonderful! It was such a great time. I had most of the products that I needed, because I kept everything for my daughter and for my son. It was really just the celebration of a new family member coming into this world. I got together with some of my dearest friends. They say it takes a village to raise children, and the people that are in my life really helped nurture our family and helped me with our children. They are a huge support system for us. The baby shower was all about having them all together and enjoying each other.

A huge highlight for all of us was having the company Manly Handz in attendance. There were these really handsome men giving foot massages to all my guests. [laughs] We felt very, very pampered. I think that was the highlight of the whole baby shower.” [laughs]

CBS: Is Estela excited to be a big sister to a second little brother or is she a little concerned about all that ‘boy’ energy? What are Estela and Marcelo up to nowadays?

AL: “Estela is excited to have a new baby and she loves my belly, but her brother is a handful. Although she adores him when they play together and she loves him, he’s a lot. She likes to stay in the house, play with her dolls, and watch her princess movies, but he wants to be outside. He climbs and he’s rough, so it’s just a different energy. I think she’s a little concerned to have two of them.

It was a big week for Estella, as she graduated kindergarten the day after we shot the Palmer’s commercial. That was a really big deal to her. They rehearsed a big performance with the whole school, which was a huge surprise for us. She was very excited. She was ecstatic to do the commercial with me and work with Palmer’s. She feels like she actually has a job and she keeps telling me she wants to buy a red car. [laughs]  Estela is going to summer camp most of the summer, and her grandparents are coming to visit. Even though it will be a bit chaotic with the new baby in the house and the new adjustment, she is going to have a wonderful summer.

Marcelo is learning how to swim this summer. We had him in Infant Swim Resource, which is a swim survival technique for children. If they ever fall in the water, they know they have to go into a ‘float’ position and get themselves on the side. He’s only twenty months old, so it’s amazing to see him get in the water and actually swim. That was a big commitment; it was an everyday thing that I did for three months with him.  He’s learned how to swim and now he’s learning how to talk. He looks at my belly and says, ‘Ball,’ so he has no idea there is a baby in there.” [laughs]

Ali Landry in blue and white bikini

I know Ali Landy’s had a lot of roles. I personally thought she was great as Rita on ‘Eve’. That said, the poor girl is probably never going to escape the ‘Doritos Girl’ label. She made a few commercials and now she will ever be associated with the brand. That has to be a little disheartening. Ah well, look at the girl. She’s gorgeous. If she plays her cards right, she’ll be able to escape that moniker eventually. She’s definitely got the looks and she’s amassed a pretty impressive body of work. Those commercials are really what got her foot in the door and introduced her to the world. It’s hard to imagine she feels bad about that.

Ali Landry’s Breastfeeding Mishap

When it comes to motherhood mishaps, model mama Ali Landry has a doozy to share.

Ali, whose adorable daughter Estela is now 3, recalls a particularly treacherous breastfeeding experience that happened while the family was stopped at a gas station

“I’m pumping the gas, I hear her crying. I lean over her car seat to nurse, hoping no one would see," she says. "My husband gets back in the car – he thinks I’m done pumping the gas, starts the car, takes off. We rip the gas pump off the hose. A couple thousand dollars later, at least my baby was happy and fed!”

Ali is just one of the celeb moms who is collaborating with to promote National Breastfeeding Month.


Ali Landry & Family Race To Erase MS

Ali Landry, film director hubby Alejandro Gomez Monteverde, and their adorable 2 ½ -year-old daughter Estela attended the 17th Annual Race To Erase MS held at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Century City, Calif. on Friday (May 7th).

Ali recently sat down with Celebrity Baby Scoop and revealed their plans for baby No. 2:

It is god’s will and we are trying very hard. He keeps saying ‘I want a baby, I want another baby,’ and I say ‘well you have to be in town to actually make that happen.’”


Ali Landry: “We’re Trying Very Hard” For Baby No. 2

Ali Landry is more than just a pretty face. The former beauty queen and Doritos Girl has hung up her glittery gowns and tiaras to become a hands-on mompreneur. The down-to-earth "girl from the south" opened up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about her princess-loving 2 ½ -year-old daughter Estela (who will not be encouraged to enter showbiz or beauty pageants), her hopes to welcome a second child soon, and her passion to spread the good word about Belle Parish. “For me, the clothes represent what I’m about: Family values, good manners, relationships, kindness and a world of simpler times.”

Ali Landry & Estela Make A Wish

Ali Landry and her husband, film director Alejandro Gomez Monteverde, along with their adorable 2 1/2-year-old daughter Estela were photographed at the Make-A-Wish foundation event hosted by Kevin James at the Santa Monica Pier on Sunday (March 14).

The 36-year-old mother of one recently opened up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about the importance of consistent discipline.

We are pretty consistent with discipline, I've always been pretty firm with her. If she misbehaves, I have always sat her in the corner. I don't care if I'm in the mall or in the French quarter of New Orleans, I will sit her in the corner. I might get crazy looks from people passing by, but it works and consistency for us is the key. My friends always say, 'Are you kidding me? She is so little, she doesn't know any better.' But no, my child knows when she is doing something wrong, she definitely knows!"


Ali Landry: “I’m In The Best Shape Of My Life”

Ali Landry opens up to Life & Style about how she lost her baby weight. The gorgeous Doritos Girl and her husband, producer Alejandro Gomez Monteverde, welcomed their daughter, Estela, on July 11, 2007. After her birth, Ali wasn’t feeling so energetic.

I was nursing, I was tired. I had no desire to go to the gym. For the first two years of her life, Estela was my focus. I didn’t care so much about being in perfect shape.”

Breastfeeding helped Ali drop 25 of her 35 pregnancy pounds. But the 36-year-old Eve actress wasn't feeling in great shape. “I was skinny-fat. I was already back in my regular clothes, but I definitely wasn’t in shape.”


Ali Landry hits the beach – Part II

Here’s Doritos hottie Ali Landry strutting her stuff in a sexy bikini and giving us one more reason to believe that gravity is totally ineffective on some people. At 36, the Doritos Girl is still as crispy as those mouth-watering Doritos chips. In simple words, her high spirit is not the only thing that’s aiming for the sky in that zig-zag bikini. Scope out the gallery after the jump.

Ali Landry is a hot bikini mama


Ali Landry will always be the Doritos Girl in our minds, but all those chips don’t seem to have had any negative impact on her figure.  The 34-year-old hottie, who is no stranger to a bikini, popped on a red and white stripe suit to celebrate her friend Natasha Henstridge’s birthday in Las Vegas.

The bash was held poolside at the Palazzo and Ali looked so good, it probably took some attention away from the birthday girl.  This woman has popped out a kid and she looks as good as she did back when she won the title of Miss USA in 1996. Maybe those Doritos have some sort of strange age reversing properties.  Scientists, start studying that - STAT.  We’ll just hang out back here and study Ali’s body.


Ali Landry hits the beach

I’m not a staunch fan of Ali Landry, but I do have my own reasons to feature her on my blog. For starters, the Doritos Girl is poised to turn 36 this July 21 and still looks deliciously hot in a bikini. Anyway, here she is seen enjoying a playful day at the beach with her daughter Estela and displaying her tight body in a red bikini. I think she has already hacked some components of my heart because I’m planning to feature her once more on my blog exactly a week later when she turns 36. For now, just hit the jump and check out the gallery.
