Ashley Williams’s Blog: Why I Decided to Have a Home Birth

03/30/2015 at 05:30 PM ET

The path to parenthood was full of decisions for actress Ashley Williams, like whether to deliver at the hospital or have a home birth.

And as she considered her options for welcoming her son into the world, Williams, a certified doula, knew there was one place she wanted to give birth: at home with husband Neal Dodson and a trusted birthing team by her side.

On Oct. 5, the couple became parents to baby boy Gus, who was born at home on the living room floor, surrounded by Williams’ strong support system.

Following the release of a recent study on home births, the new mom and star of the upcoming Jim Gaffigan Show, 36, is sharing six questions other parents should consider when putting together their own birthing plans.

Olivia Wilde on Body After Baby: I’m a Mother, and I Look Like One

03/31/2015 at 03:00 PM ET

Olivia Wilde is talking straight about what it’s like to be a new mom — after giving birth to son Otis Alexander 11 months ago, she has embraced her post-baby body.

“I am not in perfect shape. In fact, I’m softer than I’ve ever been, including that unfortunate semester in high school when I simultaneously discovered Krispy Kreme and pot,” she says in a profile she wrote herself in the April issue of Shape, on newsstands now.

“The photos of me in this magazine have been generously constructed to show my best angles, and I assure you, good lighting has been warmly embraced. The truth is, I’m a mother, and I look like one.”

His parents are two of Britain’s most famous stars and he dates celebrities like Chloë Grace Moretz, but Brooklyn Beckham might be best known — at least around London — for making a good cup of joe.

While visiting the Late Late Show on Monday, David Beckham told host James Corden about making his oldest son pick up a weekend job to earn his own spending money.

“[Kids] want new sneakers, they want new soccer boots,” Beckham explained. “It came to the point where he turned 14, 14½, and I thought, ‘You know, if you want something, then go and work and you’ve got your own money.’

“So, much to his dismay, we packed him off to the French café and he works there every Saturday and Sunday for a few hours and gets his own pocket money.”
