Happy Mother’s Day to the Brangelina brood!

As the celebration of all things maternal approaches, it’s nice that one family in Hollywood manages to exude warm family fuzzies. It’s a shining beckon of hope for all the mothers with daughters facing jail time and post-rehab cocaine scandals. In an article in the June issue of Reader’s Digest, Mama Jolie shares coveted secrets of her life with an always-expanding brood. There are lots of adorable tidbits in the article, but this one got my ovaries hummin’:

On how she went from single mom of one to part of a family of six in just three years: "I met this amazing person, and we realized we had very similar views on how we wanted to live our lives. It's happened quickly, with so many children. Yesterday, picking up the kids from school, Brad turned around in the car, and there were three of them. He couldn't stop laughing."

There’s something sickeningly beautiful about these two gorgeous people, all lips and biceps and perfect hair, being tickled at there being three children in the backseat instead of two. Brad seems to have slathered on a hot mess of ‘laid back sexy’ since he became a father. He’s definitely a DILF!

People may joke about Angelina’s hobbies of adopting babies and trying to save the world, but it’s a far nobler undertaking than crashing million-dollar sports cars and spending a grad a tee shirts (not to say that they don’t do that). They are literally saving these children’s lives. And they’ve completely opened my eyes to adoption.

Happy Mommy’s Day to Angelina!


EDIT: Looks like Sheryl Crow will have the perfect accessory for Mom's Day--a little boy! According to her blog, she just adopted a little baby named Wyatt Steven...Congrats to the new mommy...and to us! Hopefully, that means a break from her craptastic music and hair commericals! YES FADE AWAY! (I'm itching to make a clever 'crow' pun, but that would be so obtuse.)
