Molly Sims Introduces Son Brooks Alan

Meet Brooks Alan Stuber!

Molly Sims introduces her newborn son in a Thursday post on her website, sharing photos and anecdotes about her first month as a mom.

“My first seven weeks as a mama have been both amazing and hard,” the model and actress, 39, writes.

“There’s a lot of sleep deprivation involved, but I guess that comes with the territory! Brooks has been sleeping in 2½ to 3½-hour shifts, so I’ve been learning to nap when he naps.”

Sims and husband Scott Stuber have been enjoying dressing their little man up — Brooks sometimes wears up to three outfits a day, she admits — and says they’re constantly taking photos of their son, who loves to be swaddled.

“I think that no matter how prepared you are — no matter how many hours you spend researching strollers, stocking up on organic baby food, and decorating the nursery — there’s simply nothing that can prepare you for the feeling that comes with holding your baby for the first time,” she adds.

For more from the new mom — as well as additional photos — visit MollySims.com.

He is beautiful. Another one of God’s little miracles. Molly looks happy and a peace. She is going to be a wonderful mother. Congrats to her and her loved ones in this time of endless joy.

I’m glad mother and baby are doing well, but that is a really awful photo of them.

I can’t see the little fellow very well, but from what I see he’s a cutie. I bet Molly is on cloud nine with her new baby. Congratulations to her and and her husband.

Bad picture of the new baby. Love the name Brooks though. Super classy.

What does being married have anything to do with being a good parent?

janb55 on

Congrats to Brooks’ mom and dad !!

I’m so sick of being politically correct, instead I’ll be honest. Sorry if you have three children with three different fathers and this hurts your feelings but the truth is and has been proven time and time again that being married does make for better parenting. Of course there are always exceptions to the rule – but single or married if you are a psycho child abuser being married won’t change that. However, stop sleeping around and try things in the right order and you might raise decent human beings – fall in love, get married, and then have kids.

Oh a cute pic of mom and baby!

Wendell- Since this is an article about a MARRIED couple wth ONE child, I fail to see how your post is relevant.

Anyway, Brooks is ADORABLE, and I especially love the additional picture of him on Molly’s website (by the way, does anyone have any idea what it is he’s lying in? I don’t think it’s a crib, as it looks too small. A bassinet, perhaps? Or a laundry basket?)! AWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!

mathdiva- Why is it an awful picture? Because Molly isn’t super-glammed up like most celeb mothers are in their baby’s first photoshoots and actually looks like a new mom should?!

Wendell — having both parents in the home does make it easier. People can say what they want, but the fact remains passed on scientific studies that children can thrive in a two parent household. My dad was married FOUR times, my mom twice, and my siblings too many times to count. Watching what they went through made me think BEFORE I was married and made me think BEFORE had kids. FACE IT FOLKS. BEING A SINGLE PARENT IS VERY VERY VERY HARD.

I like the picture of Molly and her new baby!

I think the point of bh’s comment wasn’t that marriage makes you a better parent, but that nowadays with so little interest in marriage (now that it’s viewed as unnecessary, obsolete, and as ‘just a piece of paper’) and the notion that sex is for any and everybody not just married people, it’s surprising to find people who are married BEFORE getting pregnant & having children. Obviously with the backlash the comment got, you kind of proved the point.

It’s an awful pic because the poor baby looks so funny looking..

lovely123- Having both parents in the house doesn’t require that they be married, though. A lot of people seem to forget that for some reason.

lovely123 on

Anon-

Could not have commented better myself. Very well done.

lovely123 on

Anonymous — I know both parents do not have to be married, but marriage is NOT only a piece of paper. Marriage means you are committed to this person, and will try to do whatever it takes to stay together to have a healthy strong family. People today don’t want to take the energy. Would you have rather had your mom and dad growing up OR your mom and dad at different weekends with their new wives and THEIR children. Be honest with yourself – you know which is better for your child.

lovely123 on

Also, speaking of commitment, people are more committed to their job than to their marriage.

Anonymous on

lovely123- How sad you see your half-siblings as your parents and step-parents’ children and not your siblings! But anyway, my point was that marriage is not a requirement for a kid to grow up with both parents being together. Just because a couple doesn’t marry doesn’t mean they’re going to end up splitting (just as getting married is not a guarantee that a couple WON’T split up)!

Anonymous on

By the way, I actually share your views on marriage (that it’s not just a piece of paper and such). But I also realize that marriage isn’t for everyone, and I don’t think couples should get married just because it’s “the right thing to do”.

They should get married because they truly WANT to, and if they don’t, then I don’t think it’s our place to pressure them to do so!

“Marriage means you are committed to this person, and will try to do whatever it takes to stay together to have a healthy strong family.”

Maybe to YOU that’s what it means, but you cannot possibly believe that everyone who gets married thinks the same thing (hello? Kim Kardashian? Brittney Spears? Larry King? Mario Lopez? Jennifer Lopez?), anymore that you could possibly think that a couple like Goldie Hawn & Kurt Russell’s relationship is less legitimate than yours because they never asked the state to intervene and print their name on a court document.

lovely123 on

Janna, you are using ONE couple out of the 7 billion people on the plant? An adult opinion is great, it makes sense and it is logical, but in a CHILD’S world there isn’t reason only MOM and DAD. Face it, a strong marriage makes a strong family (same sex or not). Everyone can have their opinion – not everyone has to agree or disagree. That is the best part of being an American.

Also, using celebs as examples – doesn’t really work in the real world.
