Melissa Joan Hart on Her Funny Family Photo Shoot
After welcoming her second child — Braydon ‘Brady’ Hart — actress Melissa Joan Hart turned to a flexible diet and exercise routine to shed the extra pounds. In reality, however, Melissa shares that what keeps her in shape aren’t necessarily her trips to the gym, but rather her rambunctious boys, including her 2 ½-year-old son Mason Walter. "You don’t have time to eat because you’re chasing them all the time," says Melissa, who works her upper body by lifting "them in the car seat, out of the car seat, in the highchair, out of the highchair."
With her little monkey cutting teeth, the former Sabrina the Teenage Witch/Clarissa Explains It All star and her husband, Course of Nature rocker Mark Wilkerson, got a big laugh during their Christmas card photo shoot. Calling the incident "really bizarre, but cute," Melissa shares that while the family was ready to start snapping pictures, baby Brady, 8 months, had other plans in mind! "Because he’s teething he sticks his tongue out all the time. We took family photos yesterday for our Christmas card and he just kept sticking his tongue out," says Melissa. Although the couple are laughing about Brady’s loose tongue, the 32-year-old admits she is a bit worried that her youngest — who is "starting to stand and balance on his own" — seems to be trying to walk before he can crawl. "I’m a little concerned that he’s skipping the crawling stage because I hear that they’re not good readers if they don’t crawl," explains the actress.
Despite strange — but funny — baby moments and Brady’s attempts at crawling, Melissa and Mark are also dealing with some beginning bouts of jealousy with "great big brother" Mason.
"He’s just getting to the stage where he kicks [Brady] when he walks by him. But for the first eight months he’s been a dream."
