When actress Bryce Dallas Howard, 26, found out that she and her husband Seth Gabel, 25, were expecting a baby (son Theo arrived 2 months ago), she turned to friend and Spiderman 3 co-star Tobey Maguire, 31, and his fiancée Jennifer Meyer, parents to Ruby Sweetheart, now 5 months.
One of the most important people during my pregnancy was Jennifer Meyer, Tobey’s fiancée. She’s just an incredibly mindful parent, I mean, they both are and I really wanted to follow their example in every way. So I had the same doctor as them, the same midwife as them, everything because I knew that they did their research.
I was calling them just a few days after the birth and Tobey would stay on the phone with me for like an hour talking through things with me, and when Jen couldn’t talk because she was nursing. I felt like that was really very much of a gift for me and my husband.
