Damn I'm Cute on

Now that is going to be one valuable stroller.

Cythia Rowleys’ daughter, Gigi, is just adorable. What beautiful hair she has.

Ana on

I like the stroller itself but I simply I hate the fabric.

NicoleMarie on

I know this is off topic but does anyone know how Anya is doing?

That is a hefty cost for a Graco stroller … if it weren’t for charity, it would be totally asinine. Graco is not as high of quality as such brands as MacLaren, Peg Perego, Bugaboo, etc., and some styles of MacLaren and PP cost the same as that special edition!

Chicki on

What happened to my Jennifer Aniston comment yesterday? Have I been banned as a result? Please confirm.

Iliana on

I think Graco is better than all those other name brands. Maclarens just look flimsy and like the cheap strollers you buy for $30!

"We weren't trying to have kids. We left it up to fate. I knew there was a possibility, but I was really excited. Even if you are trying, just to see a positive result is shocking!"
