Her Mad Men character balances being a partner at the ad firm with raising a baby (whose secret father, viewers know, is silver fox Roger Sterling). Christina Hendricks, however, is content to pamper a furrier friend: her new dog.
“We got a puppy, and that’s my idea of starting a family. People say, ‘Oh, that’s practice for parenting,’ but if it’s practice for anything it’s to be a mom to another puppy,” Hendricks, 38, tells Health in their May issue, on stands April 18.
“We’ve decided that we are not really interested in having children.”
She continues: “It’s just very normal for people to say, ‘Well, when you guys have kids …’ And then when I say, ‘Actually, I don’t think we’re going to do that,’ people will say, ‘Oh, you say that now …’ It doesn’t bother me, though. And, you know, there’s a small chance I could change my mind.”

For now, Hendricks is busy bidding farewell to Mad Men‘s Joan, the beautiful former secretary she calls “incredibly blunt” and full of “feminine power.” She has some time to say goodbye: The wildly successful AMC series is splitting its seventh and final season across two years.
Plenty of fans are sure to miss drooling over Joan’s quick wit and celebrated curves — qualities Hendricks’s actor husband, Geoffrey Arend, 36, pegged as potential from the show’s start.
“Whenever we see something about it, he always says, ‘I told you from the beginning. I’m the one who called it first,’” Hendricks told the magazine of her sexy image.
“So he just wants a little credit. Really, he’s sweet and he’s happy for me.”

Rob Lowe is more than just an award-winning actor — he’s also a super devoted dad.
“You have to be willing to make some sacrifices,” Lowe said at a Mamarazzi event, hosted by The MOMS of SiriusXM, on Tuesday.
“I moved my kids out of Los Angeles, immediately. I’ve lived in Santa Barbara for 20 years almost. I’ve had my picture taken there three times.”
The move meant making a two-hour commute twice a day to film Parks. Despite the distance, he made a serious effort to be a normal dad, even coaching his sons’ sports teams.
“Show business is actually my job and my kids truly see it as my job,” Lowe says. “Every once in awhile they get flabbergasted that I’m famous. They’re like, ‘Dad! You know Jim Carrey?’ Truthfully, they don’t get it.”
By raising his sons out of the spotlight, the 50-year-old actor and author of the new book, Love Life, says he’s managed to give them a great gift.
“Not everybody is in show business where my kids grew up, and they see that the world is so much bigger than that,” Lowe explains.

Vanessa Lachey has one smart cookie on her hands.
“He says, ‘Avocado please, yogurt please, strawberries please, down please,’ or, ‘Come here,’ which means pick me up, ‘Love me, hug me, kiss me,’ — that’s his favorite thing,” Lachey, 33, told PEOPLE at the mobile launch of Farm Heroes Saga at the Flatiron Plaza in N.Y.C.
“He likes to learn, he’s so good. His verbal level to me is beyond what I’ve expected and he doesn’t get aggressive.”
But his language skills aren’t the only thing he’s mastering.
“He’s obsessed with books, he goes and gets his flash cards and he loves cars, fire trucks, taxi cabs [and] anything having to do with transportation,” Lachey, who recently moved to New York City with husband Nick Lachey for his new vH1 gig, shares.

It’ll be a girl for Stacy Keibler.
“They were excited for this blessing and just wanted a healthy baby,” a friend of the couple tells PEOPLE. “They will make amazing parents as they are so in sync.”
Keibler, 34, and Pobre, 39, wed in early March on the beach in Punta Mita, Mexico.
“Both Jared and I didn’t think that we were ever going to get married or have kids,” the actress and TV host told PEOPLE at the time. “When you meet the right person, everything changes.”
“I’m so excited for the new chapter in my life,” Keibler continued. “I’m so ready for it. I feel for the first time like I’m really fulfilled and at peace.”

So she’s over 20 weeks pregnant then. She didn’t waste any time getting knocked up by this guy.
bitsy on April 9th, 2014
My thoughts exactly SarahJane! I wish her well, but really don’t like that girl at all. Her 15 minutes was over a long time ago.
Kris on April 9th, 2014
Rebound romances do work I guess. Kaley Cuoco certainly had one and she married almost right after her and Superman broke up, you kind of wonder if these people are just really desperate to get over someone and this is what they do.
Jane on April 9th, 2014
I’m happy for them. Sometimes you don’t meet the right person till later. I wish them much happiness and joy in their new life together as husband and wife, and parents.
Just Me on April 9th, 2014
His last name means poor in Spanish. That makes me giggle.
erica2 on April 9th, 2014
I am so glad she came from under George Clooney’s spell! There is marriage, life, and happiness beyond being George’s beard. Congrats Stacy & Jared! I am sure the baby will be a tall beauty.
Tiffany on April 9th, 2014
@ Sarah Jane – you do not have to be 20 wks pregnant to find out the sex anymore. blood tests at 12 weeks can tell you the gender.
Dee on April 9th, 2014
Ceecee on April 9th, 2014
Actually you can find out as early as 9-10 weeks with a blood test. I speak from experience.
ELC on April 9th, 2014
She talks like she’s a little old lady. All Stacy is is 34…my gosh get over yourself woman. If she stuck it out with George the hunk then maybe I could understand her saying that but she married a guy in her age group. She sounds like another dumb starlet. Grow up already.
Dee on April 9th, 2014
“Look GEORGE, I’m having a baby GIRL! Maybe you can date HER one day because, yeah, you’ll still be SINGLE then. You made a big mistake letting ME get away!!!”
*As she sobs into her Ben & Jerry’s.
Canyon on April 9th, 2014
One of the few that wanted to be married before giving birth. Why not at least give her props for that.
guest on April 9th, 2014
Due “late summer” as the article says probably means she was 20 weeks. Congrats to her!
mary on April 9th, 2014
I think she was emotionally hurt by George Clooney, so she met a guy, intentionally got pregnant and married him to give George Clooney the impression that he didn’t mean that much to her. Just my opinion.
: on April 9th, 2014
HA! seems like they got married for the baby! which ahppened BEFORE the marriage!
Elizabeth on April 9th, 2014
I wish them both nothing but the best that life has to offer
Amber on April 9th, 2014
And someday the baby will grow up to date George.
Allison on April 9th, 2014
Didn’t Stacy Keibler get the memo that you don’t get knocked up by your rebound?
egni knov on April 9th, 2014
Why all the excuses it is your business and your husbands.
You’re not the first or the last who is pregnant on her wedding day.
Be happy and stop with all the excuses, please we all know that they are lies.
Have a happy life and a beautiful baby girl.
Kat on April 9th, 2014
I knew it was a shotgun wedding. That guy still doesn’t know what hit him, lol! missus made sure she got knocked right away and now she owns half his estate.
Marla on April 9th, 2014
Good for her. Many happy blessings
Teresa on April 9th, 2014
Wow, what rude, mean, nasty women on this subject. You all sound so small and petty. Sad that you can’t be happy for her.
Anonymous on April 9th, 2014
““When you meet the right person, everything changes.”” Meaning “When you get pregnant without planning it, everything changes”
maof3orso on April 9th, 2014
I wonder if George will still be able to date when this baby is 18.

Stacy’s daughter will probably be one of George Clooney’s girlfriends 20 years down the road.
GT on April 9th, 2014
Glad she is out from George!
Sara on April 9th, 2014
Congratulations to Stacy & Jared. I’m sure their daughter will be beautiful.
Kris on April 10th, 2014
Happy for Stacy. Congrats!
Anonymous on April 10th, 2014
Okay, why all the negativity? I, for one, am thrilled for Stacy! How wonderful that she finally found happiness. Also, she’s known her husband for a lot longer than the few months they spent dating before getting married. The article about the marriage states that they’ve been friends for five years.
Anyway, I wish her and her hubby the best of luck!

A little girl, they are so precious.

She knew George did not want marriage or kids, why is everyone picking on him?
Kristin Cavallari must be taking style cues from fellow mom-to-be Kerry Washington because on Tuesday the expectant TV host hit the red carpet in a white crop top at NBCUniversal’s Summer Press Day event in Pasadena, Calif.
But this time we weren’t on the fence about the somewhat controversial look.
Instead of baring any skin, Cavallari (who is due with another boy!) paired the short sleeveless shirt over a nude-colored pleated maxi so that the hemlines met perfectly – making it a beautiful combination for a growing bump.
We have to admit, we were hoping Washington didn’t start a new maternity trend at the SAG Awards, but now that we see Cavallari’s version, we’re kind of loving it.
TELL US: Do you think bumps and crop tops mix?

Happy birthday, Moses!
Proud mom Gwyneth Paltrow took to her Instagram account on Tuesday to celebrate a major milestone in her little boy’s life.
Looking fresh-faced with her blonde locks pulled away from her face, the actress snuggles her son — as they both flash big grins — in the sweet snapshot.
“Moses Bruce Paltrow Martin turns 8 today. We love you!” she writes.

“We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been,” the couple said in a joint statement announcing their split.Filed Under:Kids, News
The sibling love was at a standstill in Mark-Paul Gosselaar‘s home — until his two kids were saved by … the baby.
“They still hate each other, but they love the baby, so all the love now goes to Dekker,” Gosselaar, 40, joked to PEOPLE at the Safe Kids Day event on Saturday in West Hollywood, Calif.
Balancing a new baby and busy schedules with work can get hectic, so during the week Gosselaar’s goal is often “just having dinner … as a unit.” But all bets are off on the weekends when the family — which includes Gosselaar’s wife Catriona — gets together for some fun.
“One of the activities that we do is we play golf together — it’s something that we like to do,” the Franklin & Bash star says. “We pick one day to have fun between the kids’ soccer and gymnastics.”
And with so much going on, Gosselaar has found a way to document each moment — and memory! — throughout the years. The result has become a special keepsake for his children.
“The minute Dekker sat up and Michael goes to bed without a nightlight [and] Ava loses her tooth — there’s literally milestones every single day with children,” he explains. “We write it down in a journal every once in awhile. Anytime the kids say a funny quote, we write it down … and then we read them out loud. It just shows how the time progressed.”

Brooklyn Decker may not have baby fever, but she at least has baby low-grade temperature.
“It is great getting to be Aunt Brooklyn and play with my friends’ kids,” Decker, 26, tells PEOPLE.
But Decker knows having a bundle of joy would also mean less alone time with her retired tennis pro husband Andy Roddick, whom she wed in 2009.
“I love seeing Majandra with her daughter, but she would also get jealous any time I told her I was going home and having a wine date with my husband,” says Decker. “I love kids. I definitely want kids. I just have to figure out the timing of that.”

If we didn’t know any better, there’s no way we’d believe Elsa Pataky just gave birth to twins only three weeks ago. But it’s true!
On Monday, the new mom – who welcomed sons Tristan and Sasha on March 18 – stepped out in a white graphic tee, mini cream shorts, aviator shades and a pacifier in Malibu, Calif. looking refreshed and beach-ready.
Pataky spent most of the day frolicking in the sand with 23-month-old daughter India Rose.
The actress has also been busy writing a blog for Glamour España, where she shares her thoughts on everything from motherhood to her favorite things.
We’re just hoping to get a look at her little boys soon. We bet they take after dad Chris Hemsworth.

“I am a parent,” Krumholtz, 35, Tweeted, without sharing any details.
But two days later, not only did the new dad reveal his baby girl’s name – Pemma Mae Krumholtz — he also shared a sweet snapshot of his sleeping newborn.
“The girl of my dreams,” he captioned the photo.
