Celeb Moms Say ‘I Love You’ With Tattoos

March 11, 2010

Kelly Ripa made a splash on The Late Show with David Letterman earlier this week when she revealed a new tattoo on her forearm–her husband’s last name, ‘Consuelos’.

But her choice to tattoo a love tribute to her husband and kids isn’t without precedent among the jet set. So what other stars have done it? Check it out…


Angelina Jolie’
s left arm used to bear a picture of a snake and the name of her ex-husband, Billy Bob Thornton. Now, it has been re-purposed to feature the latitude and longitude coordinates of the birthplaces of each of her six kids.

Victoria Beckham, mother of three, has two tattoos dedicated to her soccer star husband, David Beckham–including his initials on the inside of her wrist.

So far, no celebrity dads we know of have taken the plunge. How would you feel if your partner tattooed a tribute to you or your kids?

Hollywood Moms Nab Fitness Awards

March 9, 2010

With so many Awards ceremonies packed into a three-month period, its only natural that a few might get lost in the shuffle. So you would have had to be paying pretty close attention to take notice of the first annual Hollywood’s Hottest Body Awards, which were awarded on March 3. Sponsored by a partnership between Gold’s Gym and USWeekly, over one million votes were cast to recognize outstanding achievements in fitness by the stars. So which moms were among the winners? Drumroll please…

The award for Most Chiseled Arms went to none other than Kelly Ripa. (Honestly, was it even a contest? She could snap a two-by-four in half with those things!)  Meanwhile,  Jessica Alba won the Biggest Post-Baby Body Comeback Award for whipping herself back into shape after the birth of her daughter Honor Marie in 2008.

Of course, its not an Oscar statue. But these moms can now bask in the satisfaction that not only are they far fitter than the rest of us mere mortals, but they are also buffer than their Hollywood counterparts. Go ladies!

What other moms should be recognized for their work-out efforts?
