Marissa Jaret Winokur Celebrates Mother's Day at Sea World

05/08/2009 at 05:00 PM ET

Mother’s Day came early for Marissa Jaret Winokur and her 10-month-old son Zev Isaac, with the Hairspray star marking the occasion last Saturday at Sea World. “That was my big Mother’s Day gift,” she dished to Access Hollywood. “I said ‘I want to go to Sea World,’ so we went to Sea World.” Husband Judah Miller will have another gift waiting for Marissa on Sunday if he’s smart, however! Marissa, 36, jokes,

“Oh he better have something up his sleeve. I haven’t given any hints but now I think maybe I should!”

As it does for most women, Marissa says that motherhood has changed the way she views her own parents, both of whom will be visiting as she marks her first Mother’s Day. “I can’t believe now everything my mother went through,” she admits. “One hundred percent now I understand the trouble I was.”

Awww Marissa always looks so happy with Zev, you can tell she doesn’t take him for granted because she has waited for him, her precious baby, for so long. I always love seeing pictures of Zev because he just melts my heart, and Marissa is such a great mother.

He is so precious! Marissa has always been such a joyful, upbeat person, but I think that brightness has grown by a million in the past year. I didn’t think her smile could get bigger!

Wow, she certainly exudes happiness. Good for her! I also see the resemblance in her little cutie 😉

Its a tough call but I think Zev take the title of cutest in that picture.
The smile on Marissas face makes me giggle with happiness.

g!na- It could be because he’s eating lots of squash and/or carrots. The orange color in those foods is caused by beta-carotine, which also turns human skin orange if you consume large amounts of it.

g!na, I think it’s a penguin, possibly a chick? I was wondering that myself because at first it seemed liked a platypus but those are dark brown and a penguin fits for SeaWorld.

Zev is a doll, so happy for Marissa and Judah!

I’m pretty sure that’s a penguin!

I love that she always looks so happy, but in EVERY picture I see of her, her mouth is always wide open. Does she pose like that?

Celebbabylover – oh, thanks for telling me! but would the orange color go away or does it take awhile because i’ve seen so many pics where the orange tint was still present on his little nose? thanks!

his nose looks the same color as the rest of his skin…you are nuts

Ellie- That’s probably just the way she smiles. People smile in all sorts of different ways!
