I don’t understand why celebs need to take their nannies with them all the time? Seriously she can’t handle one child? I take my 18 month old twins out by myself all the time and we have no nannies at all.

Alicia on

I love all the blue in that picture. It’s so calming.

Jessica on

I thought the same thing, Heather. I can see if she had both and was at some large event, but for a walk for a snack???

Jen on

What ugly kids! I always pass the picture of Marsha Cross and her kids. What a lazy mom to have a nanny. Take care of your own kids. I do.

kaitlyn on

Maybe they’re also friends and Marcia invited her to come along? I was a live-in nanny and I used to go shopping, out to eat, etc with the family all the time. You can’t tell the whole story from one pic.

cathylee on

Adorable. Well, since I assume she didn’t excactly invite the nanny on a walk for a snack, I don’t ee what the big deal is! Maybe they were walking her home from work, they could be on their way to savannah and tom. Or maybe, just maybe, they could be friends walking together. We do not know what they’re doing so we don’t have anything we should have said. Well, that my opinion anyway.

dsmom on

Heather, I agree 100%. I’m sure that we will both get slammed for thinking it in the posts to come but gosh, i think its ridiculous that people cant handle there own kids!

Sasha, USA on

Thank you, Kaitlyn. The nanny is part of the family and Marcia is “allowed” to have a fellow adult along to converse with.

Christine on

Why does she usually only go out with one of her daughters and not both? Just curious!

Nanny_emma on

Maybe the Nanny just wanted to take a stroll too? lol

dsmom on

Seriously Sasha? I honestly doubt that the nanny really wanted to go on a walk with them and can I also just say that nannies make a parents job easier. Celebrities like things easier and that is what money can buy. She is not at work. She is running and errand with 1 child.I would also think that she would want some alone time with just her and her girls, sans the nanny!This is coming from someone who nannied for a few years. People with extra money and a nanny are in my experience lazier parents.

Skipsie on

Personally I don’t see what the big deal is.
It’s not as if we see the actual nanny doing the work, its Marcia who is pushing the pram. We don’t know what the situation is from one picture. But the nanny and Marcia appear friendly and they could just be chatting and catching up.
My friend had a nanny who was best friends with her mam.

Judging from pictures, I don’t think I’ve seen a more down to earth, hands-on mom in Hollywood than Marcia Cross (well maybe apart from J. Garner). Now , here for whatever reason her nanny accompanies her and one of her daughters and all of a sudden she’s a lazy parent? Come on!

luiza on

i don’t get why she’s always out with one of the girls-eden?!well,i mean it is probably hard to handle two of them at the same time,couse if she is pictured with both of her daughters,she with her husband as well.but if she’s on her own,she always just with one daughter-eden.does she has her favorite one?no seriously i don’t get that?

marciafan on

i must say i agree with Lilith….there is nothing wrong with taking a nanny out for a walk…maybe someone for Marcia to talk to…

I am actually quite sickened by the implication that Marcia is a ‘lazy’ parent…of all the celebs shes arguably the most down to earth and normal.

Im not pleased, but the photo is precious nonetheless

emmy on

It seems like every time she goes out with just one baby, it’s always Eden and the other baby is left at home. Is that just me, does anyone else notice this?

44641d3cc5 on

What UGLY CHILDREN. Well Marsha looks like she is a b****
Nannies are for lazy mom who don’t want to raise there children. I have 5 1-5 and I did it myself.

Cristina on

Oh, come on you guys! Most of the post here about Marcia and the girls get tons and tons of comments about how down to Earth and hands on she is. And now just because she’s got a nanny with her in one picture (and she’s not even doing anything to Eden!) some of you are assuming she’s a “lazy parent”? Come on. She’s my favorite celebrity mom and I think she takes really good care of her girls, always taking her out to parks and everything! I think they are all very lucky to have one another, that family seems to be filled with so much love😉

Renee on

I don’t understand why people care about whether celebrities go out with their nannies. It doesn’t affect any of us. If you don’t have a nanny, fine but don’t criticize people who do have them. What’s the point for attacking someone for having a nanny? It doesn’t make them a bad mother.

Liz on

Is it just me or does Marcia seem to favour more time with Eden rather than Savannah?

andrea on

I’m curious to two things. Why is it most images I see of Marcia with one of her twins that it is usually Eden she has and rarely Savannah ( I could be mistaken so before I get flammed I admit that I could be wrong but it’s how it appears) and to that end how do we know which twin she has with her at any one time unless she has said, this is Eden/Savannah to the person photographing them? To me they look very alike.

SH on

dsmom, I can’t believe you would or COULD call Marcia Cross of all people LAZY! She’s a pretty major Hollywood star right now, in her 40’s with young twins! There’s pictures of her on here weekly – always a smile on her face and her girls faces…always doing something fun…they are obviously happy and healthy. Maybe the people you worked for were lazy…but you shouldn’t compare your situation with hers – a situation YOU know NOTHING about.

dsmom on

SH….That is exactly what I said…In MY EXPERIENCE! Go re- read my comment. I never mentioned Marcia as being lazy. Yes, the people I worked for were LAZY parents and took advantage of the fact that they had a nanny. In fact Marcia is one of my favorite celeb moms!

lilith on

dsmom, I too was thinking that in your first two posts you were criticizing Marcia and somehow implying that she’s lazy for taking a nanny along with her while out with one daughter.
I’ve reread it and frankly it’s hard to interpret it any other way, or how would you explain the following sentence “i think its ridiculous that people cant handle there own kids!”?

SH on

dsmom,..maybe you should read your OWN posts! You “100% agreed” with this statement made by Heather – and you even said yourself that you would get “slammed for thinking that it was ridiculous that people can’t handle their own kids”…

I don’t understand why celebs need to take their nannies with them all the time? Seriously she can’t handle one child? I take my 18 month old twins out by myself all the time and we have no nannies at all.

AND, correct me if I’m wrong, But you ARE talking about Marcia Cross and HER nanny in this next comment of yours, right? – like when you use the word “SHE” and “THE NANNY” and “HER GIRLS” you mean Marcia Cross and her twins and the nanny in the picture…

I honestly doubt that the nanny really wanted to go on a walk with them and can I also just say that nannies make a parents job easier. Celebrities like things easier and that is what money can buy. She is not at work. She is running and errand with 1 child.I would also think that she would want some alone time with just her and her girls, sans the nanny!This is coming from someone who nannied for a few years. People with extra money and a nanny are in my experience lazier parents.

Um, pardon me for living, but those statements don’t sound like nice supportive statements for one of your “favorite celeb moms”…the way I interpret those statements is you’re calling her lazy for being out with 1 child and a nanny on an errand while she “isn’t working” – Which by the way, I have 4 children under 4 years old, no twins, and running ANY errand with ANY young children is work -nanny or not. (which I don’t have and never will, but that’s my choice)

Maybe Marcia just simply wanted to have the extra person with her because she’s bombarded by the paps all the time. Strength in numbers sort of thing. I’m sure she can handle herself and her kids, but out in public alone walking down the street with your kids with a zillion freaks trying to take your picture? I don’t blame her for having a nanny with her! The nanny is employed by her so why is that wrong? She’s the one paying her, not us.
