Denise Richards was not the only celeb mom on the Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday- Ellen also had on Less Than Perfect’s Sherri Shepherd who gave birth to Jeffrey Charles Jr a few months ahead of schedule. Jeffrey Jr. was born at 25 weeks on April 22nd and weighed only 1 lb 10 oz. He is now 2 months, adjusted, because with preemies, you count from the due date. He is now 9 lbs. (Sherri had announced the gender and name on Ellen’s show back in March.)
I had TIVO’ed the show in order to report on both appearances, but after transcribing Denise’s interview, I was so exhausted. I planned to do a full write-up on Sherri, who was by far the more entertaining guest, but let me put it this way… I’m going to be checking into the hospital tomorrow to have my labor induced so I have a lot of other things to do!
Here is CBB Reader Kathy Z’s synopsis:
She was charming and hilarious as always, describing breast-pumping and trying to be sexy
for her husband when she’s exhausted from caring for a baby. She talked about how they’re trying to have another baby right away because she thinks that caring for her in her old age will be too big of a responsibility for only one child. But the highlight was when Sherri’s husband brought their baby son onstage and Ellen cradled the baby to her chest — then pretended to steal him.
