Do your kids believe?


Salma Hayek: Valentina Doesn’t Believe In Santa

Despite her best efforts, Salma Hayek-Pinault reveals that her daughter Valentina doesn't believe in Santa Claus.

"No matter what I say to her, she just doesn't buy it, and she's 2 1/2. I refuse to give it up," the Grown-Ups star says. "I say, 'There is a Santa Claus,' and she says, 'Okay, Mommy. In pretend world, right?' She really doesn't believe. There's nothing I can say to make her believe in Santa Claus."

The gorgeous actress says she hasn't given up hope just yet. By the time Christmas rolls around she's hoping little Valentina will have had a change of heart.

"I'm hopeful that she's too young to believe in Santa Claus and, in a year or so, she'll believe in it, especially because it's always a great tool for blackmail when you say, 'If you don't do this, Santa Claus isn't going to bring you anything.'"


Salma Hayek & Family’s Saturday Stroll

Salma Hayek and husband François-Henri Pinault took a trip to the Mac store in Century City, Calif. on Saturday (July 31) with their gorgeous daughter, 2 ½-year-old Valentina.

The trio seemed to be enjoying their outing together, though the 43-year-old Grown Ups actress was spotted clutching her husband’s arm while treading lightly on a bandaged right foot. We hope she's not in too much pain!

Salma and her husband have one child together while the 48-year-old French businessman is also dad to François, 11, and Mathide, 9, from a previous marriage.


Adriana Lima & Marko Jaric Talk Marriage & Baby Valentina

Model mom Adriana Lima shows off her gorgeous family in the new issue of Hello! Canada magazine. In the issue, the 29-year-old Victoria's Secret star and her handsome hubby Marko Jaric talk about their marriage and their beautiful baby girl Valentina, now 8 months.

On her pregnancy: "I was very sick for five months. And then I had pre-eclampsia, so Valentina was born earlier because of that. But thank God, she was healthy and everything was fine."

Adriana on Marko: "He's been the greatest. I'm so lucky. After the birth, he helped me so much. He would help me feed her, change the diapers - actually, he was better than me at changing her! He's still great. He's always there and he loves Valentina so much. I can see it in his eyes every time he looks at her. He's so happy."


Salma Hayek’s Disney Day

Actress Salma Hayek spent yesterday at the Happiest Place on Earth with her daughter Valentina, 2 1/2, stepdaughter Mathide, 9, and mom Diana (July 8). The group of girls looked to be having a blast as they hopped on rides and took in the sights and sounds of Disneyland.

The beautiful mom recently talked about bringing her adorable girl to the set of her latest film, Grown Ups, where she kept the cast and crew entertained:

She does sing 'Twinkle, Twinkle [Little Star],' but the kids [in the movie] taught her other [songs]," Salma says. "Now they've got her into the soundtrack of Mamma Mia. She of course likes [the song] 'Mamma Mia,' but she also likes 'Honey, Honey.'"


Salma Hayek Brought Daughter To Set Of "Grown Ups"

Actress Salma Hayek, who can currently be seen opposite Adam Sandler in Grown Ups was thrilled to take on a comedic role for a change, especially because it meant that she could entertain her daughter, 3-year-old Valentina.

"You want to do movies that your children can watch, and also that your children can have fun with, and enjoy the experience of shooting it," she commented. Salma even got to bring Valentina to the set, saying that Adam Sandler created a "dream environment" for kids. The only problem? Having to be as funny as Adam and her Grown Up co-stars!

"Adam makes it like the dream environment to have children there. They make it so highly entertaining, but you're nervous when you think about going back home because you wonder how are you going to entertain your child that way."


Salma Hayek’s Co-Star: "Valentina Is A Spitfire Like Her Mom"

Grown Ups star Salma Hayek says that the making of the new flick was a family affair.

The 43-year-old beauty tells People that her 2 1/2-year-old daughter Valentina had a blast entertaining mom's co-stars on the set.

"She does sing 'Twinkle, Twinkle [Little Star],' but the kids [in the movie] taught her other [songs]," Salma says. "Now they've got her into the soundtrack of Mamma Mia. She of course likes [the song] 'Mamma Mia,' but she also likes 'Honey, Honey.' "

Little Valentina earned herself plenty of admirers during the movie's filming. Says Salma's co-star Madison Riley, "She's also a spitfire like her mom. She's gorgeous, sweet and she walked around in a little strut."

Salma is pictured here at this week's New York premiere of Grown Ups. The movie, co-starring Adam Sandler and Chris Rock, opens in theaters today.


Valentina Pinault Is A Sunday Shopper

Salma Hayek-Pinault was pictured enjoying a sunny New York City afternoon with a friend and her 2 1/2-year-old daughter Valentina on Sunday (June 20). The trio made a quick stop in front of their hotel while Salma made phone call before they headed to FAO Schwartz for some retail therapy.

The 43-year-old mother of one recently opened up about changing her name.

It was Valentina’s request. I didn’t think about it until she brought it up. We were shooting a film, and she saw my chair with my name on it. She said, ‘What does it say there?’ And I said, ‘Salma Hayek.’ And she said, ‘What about Pinault? Why not Pinault?’ Because here people say ‘Madame Pinault.’ I said to myself, ‘ This is who I am now. I’m starting a whole new life. I’ve never been happier.”

Salma is married to Valentina's father, François-Henri Pinault.


Salma Hayek Says Family Comes First

Being a mom is top priority for Academy Award-nominated actress, Salma Hayek. The 43-year-old mama - who has a 2-year-old daughter Valentina with husband François-Henri Pinault - admits she has less time to spend on other things she cares about.

The gorgeous Frida star says she's had to scale back on her charity work now that she's a mom.

I was at one point in my life very involved with social causes and as passionate as I am about it I remember I almost had to be...I'm still involved but it's almost like a choice, now I have a family and it's important to me. I have to do this for myself but of course there's just so much you can do sometimes."

The busy mother of one knows she's not alone. "I don't have a lot of time anymore so I know my friends have suffered from trying to juggle everything, like your social life suffers a little bit, definitely. Every parent will tell you that."


Salma Hayek Says Motherhood Is The Final Frontier

Salma Hayek once had dreams of traveling to space. The 43-year-old Frida star has now decided that her daughter is the final frontier.

I reserved my place with the Virgin [Galactic] expedition. And then I got pregnant. And now I'm a mother. So, I'm not going to go," Salma tells InStyle.

Now that she is mom to Valentina, her 2-year-old daughter with fashion tycoon François-Henri Pinault, Salma says it's always safety first. "I love scuba diving and used to dive where the sharks were, and now? No more sharks. Everything becomes about the baby. You are in second position, or third."
