Great family pics! Love seeing them. James Marsden looks like he has fun with his kids! Look at all those smiles. They seem like they have a fun time.

Waylon Weber is such a cute boy! He kind of has a Kingston Rossdale vibe!

Meloda Hardin is so gorgeous! Her girls are too cute!

Francesca Bateman is a doll!

Breckin and his daughter = awww/

Loving Jenna’s hair and scarf!

Callum Lyon has such piercing blue eyes

I love James Marsdens’ kids’ names. Mary James may not be a combo of names you expect for a girl (mainly because the two names contrast each other, with Mary being very feminine and James very masculine), but I love both of those names on their own, and I can’t help but actually like that name combo, for some reason. :)

FC on

I do think Francesca Bateman has gone and stolen my heart for good. I melt every time I see a photo of her. And it’s great seeing all of the other families and respective kiddies…

Daddy James Marsden is just a doll and a half.I’ve always adored him…

But, damn, who told Adrian Pasdar to go and get hotter in his absence! Aside from my other thoughts, that was my first thought! Ha! I blame him! I’ll start calling him Mr. Fine Wine! ;)

Shannon on

Every one of these kids and thier families are so adorable but I gotta say, James Marsden is the best! Seriously, if I wasn’t totally in love with him before, I sure am now after seeing him with his kiddos!

marlee on

Why are Mary James, Waylon and Oliver Wolfgang all being carried? I understand if they are just posing but if they aren’t why are they being carried? These three are all of the age of 3!

Jennifer on

I love the little girl petting the Target dog’s ear! So cute :)

I think Frannie Batemen is the spitting image of Jason. She is going to be just beautiful as an adult.

How cute is Nicole Sullivan’s son?! OMG! Love him!

And I agree, I like the name Mary James for a little girl. James Marsden did good! :)

As for the adults, I hate Natalie Maines haircut, love Jenna Elfman’s, and think James Marsden is just SO freaking gorgeous!! I also think it’s just a tad egotistical for Wolfgang Puck to have each of his kids middle names be his first name. I’ve seen other people do this, and I don’t get it. One I understand, two (or more), why? NOT that there is anything wrong with it, not trying to make people mad here, I just don’t like (or understand) it at all!

Kelly on

Sooooo many cuties!!!

Jessi: I can understand why some of the 3 year olds being carried. If I was somewhere where there was a TON of people, and then there were photographers taking pics, I could understand a 3 year old (or 4 year old or older) getting a little overwhelmed. Being hugged or picked up and carried seems like a good way to help calm the nerves of an anxious pre-schooler.

Ashley on

Francesca is 3 years old too but of course you don’t worry about her being “carried” because she is the “most cutest little girl” ! Give me a break. Refuse to carry your children past the age of 3 if you want to but these parents obviously don’t mind!

Jessi on

Kelly: I understand that, but I still don’t get how people carry kids that are 4 and older!

Ashley: I meant to say that they are well over the age of 3, hence they are 4.

Also I won’t be able to carry my children past the age of 2 or maybe 3 because I am the size of a young girl. I am little! They would be huge compared to me!

CelebBabyLover on

Jessi- You may just end up surprising yourself! I don’t know your exact height, but I am also quite short, and I can carry my 30-pound dog without any problems (granted, I can’t carry her for long periods of time, but I CAN carry her!)! :)

Jessi on

CBL: Yeah I might surprise myself, but I’m not sure. I’m only 4’9″, 4’10” on a good day lol

Charlie on

Frannie Bateman is just so adorable! I mean, all of these kids are gorgeous but she just stole my heart :) I love how her expression is full of attitude.

Mary on

Ok, no one else wants to do it? Fine. I will. Holy Jennifer Grey!!!! I totally geeked out when I saw her. There are never any pictures of her. Had no clue she was married with a daughter. Now I’m getting naustalgic for my 80s movies.

Jessi on

Kelly: I didn’t mean to miss your post! haha Yes I agree though.

Jenelle on

I think the Marsden family is super cute as well as Natalie, Adrian and Beckett! Such an adorable close family!
Adrian is well, HOT!
Natalie is flipping GORGEOUS!!! I love her new hair and her old hair!
And for Beckett…absolutely…Well, can you spell Adorable!?!?

Brigitte on

I agree, all of the kids are simply gorgeous but can somebody tell me what is wrong with Adrian Pasdar’s hand? Did he have an accident? It looks swollen. Don’t get me wrong, I love Adrian, which is what made me look at his picture closely.
