Eva Amurri Martino Thanksgiving Festivities

Mom-of-two Eva Amurri Martino and husband, NBC Sports broadcaster Kyle Martino, are gearing up for a fun and festive Thanksgiving. The Mothers and Daughters star, 32, shared a family photo with their two kids – daughter Marlowe, 3, and 1-year-old son Major –– via Instagram

“Say Turkey!” A BIG blog post is up today on HappilyEvaAfter.com featuring a look at my #Thanksgiving table, our family Turkey Day style, and our plans for the day- as well as my tips for YOUR best Thanksgiving table! Let me know what you think,” she captioned the family photo.

The Californication actress shared further details on her blog, Happily Eva After

As it turns out, the Undateable star and her family will celebrate Thanksgiving with her famous mother, Stepmom actress Susan Sarandon.

While Eva is hosting Thanksgiving at their Connecticut home, Susan will bring her favorite pies from New York City.

This Thanksgiving is our first one hosting at our new Connecticut home,” writes Eva. We have some fun things planned.  Our friends and fam are showing up around 2 pm and we have a fun cocktail hour where we shake up some yummy drinks (I’m partial to a pre-Thanksgiving dinner dirty martini!) and enjoy some appetizers.  We always have a legit cheese selection– and a couple of hot apps as well! Our family friend makes the MOST delicious breaded shrimp appetizer with four dipping sauces.  I’m going to make my signature (and super easy) bacon-wrapped dates as well! Then we normally sit down to eat around 4 pm.  We are doing two turkeys this year– one in the oven, and one on the grill! Then we have a few different stuffings, green beans, roasted veggies, and mashed potatoes.  And Cranberry sauce, which is my personal fave– I put it on everything! Then, we enjoy a bunch of pies for dessert that my Mom brings from NYC.  We almost always forget to buy vanilla ice cream until the eleventh hour and somebody has to run out and get it.  LOL.  Would it really be Thanksgiving without a last minute grocery store emergency?! Ha!

As for their family traditions, everyone is sure to count their blessings while digging into their delicious meal.

During dinner, we go around the table and talk about what we’re thankful for this year,” Eva writes

This year is especially moving for me since Major’s accident and skull fracture happened the day after Thanksgiving last year.  Getting closer to the “anniversary” of what we all went through is really emotional for me, and leaves me feeling really grateful and resilient.  It’s so incredible that I can sit at my own table this year with my healthy, thriving son and finally shut the door to that entire chapter of our lives.  I am very thankful for that.”

 And it sounds like the fun continues after the fabulous feast.
 “After dinner, we bring the wine into the living room and play games,” shares Eva. “I have a few old-school board games (think: Clue, Monopoly, Dictionary) that are so fun to play with bigger groups.  We’ll probably put some great music on and hang out for a while once the kids are down for the night.  Although hosting in your own home can be stressful, I actually prefer it– you don’t have to go anywhere at the end of the night! Ha!”

Nicky Hilton’s Baby Shower

Time goes so fast, as in it is already time for Nicky Hilton’s baby shower!

Expectant mama Nicky Hilton celebrated her baby shower on Tuesday (November 21). Hosted by sister Paris Hilton and mother Kathy Hilton, the blue and pink-themed soiree was held at the family’s Bel Air mansion.  

The Hilton home was decorated with pink Christmas trees and other festive décor to help Nicky celebrate her second baby-on-the-way.

It’ll be a surprise delivery for the socialite, 34, and her husband James Rothschild. And the famous family dressed in blues and pinks to accent the party’s color themes.

Nicky’s 16-month-old daughter Lily Grace matched auntie Paris in pink dresses, while the mom-to-be and her mother rocked blue ensembles.

At the dessert table, guests noshed on sweet treats like macaroons from the popular Paris bakery, Maison Laduree.

A-list guests included several Real Housewives including Kim Richards, Bethenny Frankel and Kyle Richards.

The guest of honor and her famous sister took to Instagram with several snapshots from the baby shower.

“Baby # 2 is brewing,” Nicky captioned an image of the dessert table.  There are a quite a lot of sweets to choose from at Nicky Hilton’s baby shower.  Bring an insulin shot!

Drew Barrymore’s Thanksgiving Celebration

E.T. star Drew Barrymore and her ex-husband Will Kopelman are set to celebrate Thanksgiving together with their daughters Olive, 5, and Frankie, 3. The Santa Clarita Diet star, 42, and Kopelman split more than 18 months ago, but they’ve maintained a united front for their growing girls.

The friendly exes are keeping up with their family traditions this holiday season in New York City.

We do a whole thing at the house,” the Blended star told PEOPLE of their Thanksgiving plans.

She added: “I always spend it with my daughters, their father, grandparents, [Will’s sister] Jill [Kargman], my sister, the cousins. We have a whole Kopelman-Kargman tradition.”

And it sounds like the friendly family might do some exploring over the holidays.

We might take a trip – not on an airplane,” Barrymore shared. Travel during Thanksgiving is so hard, so anything that’s a drive away.”

The Wedding Singer star moved to New York from California with Will and their children in 2014.

I’m really just getting to know the East Coast,” said the mom-of-two. I just went to Vermont and rode a bike for 15 miles and huffed and puffed until I thought I was going to die. I’m just exploring.”

She added: “I’m not an aficionado. If it was the state of California I could tell you everything, but [in] New York I’m like lost. I’m new here!

In February, Barrymore opened up on The Ellen DeGeneres Show about peacefully co-parenting her daughters with her ex.

“It’s interesting, I saw this article the other day written about me — and I never see articles written about me — and it was like, ‘My Modern Family.’ And I was like, ‘I like that; that has a nice ring to it,’ ” Barrymore said.

She added: “I so wanted to raise kids in this ultra-traditional way and do everything so the polar opposite of my experience.”

The mom-of-two is sure to walk the walk and talk the talk with her modern family.

“It really is about the tone you set. And you can talk until you’re blue in the face, but kids watch what you do every single day of your life, all day long, and that behavior and that example and that love and community and honesty is what’s making everything feel safe for my kids,” the actress shared.

Regardless of their split, it’s all about family for the single mom.

“That’s really the intention I had as a parent was, ‘How do my kids have this incredible sense of freedom inside their heart?’ ” she shared. ” ‘Cause they know I’ve got them and their dad’s got them and Grammy and Poppy — I’m wearing Grammy’s necklace right now — their cousins and [Will’s sister Jill Kargman].”

She added: “I got two families. I went from like zero to two, and it’s a miracle and a blessing. And we do it in a way that I think a lot of other people are probably doing it too. And sometimes, again, the road is different than what you try to make it or what you expected and you just figure it out and you figure it out with grace.”

While the actress did not issue a public announcement of their split, Barrymore filed for divorce in July 2016 and the divorce was granted on Aug. 3, 2016, after 4 years of marriage.

Strummer Newcomb Cook is Julia Stiles’ First Child

Strummer Newcomb Cook – now this is kind of a cool name; and the whole thing kind of just rolls off the tongue.

Welcome to planet Earth, Strummer Newcomb Cook!

Congrats are in order for Julia Stiles and spouse Preston J. Cook who have welcomed their first lovechild, a bouncing baby boy.

“Strummer Newcomb Cook, born October 20, 2017. Thanks and ever thanks to the extraordinary Doctors, Nurses and staff at Mount Sinai for helping bring this utter joy into our lives,” Stiles Instagrammed to the world. “Hello, World!”

Stiles, 36, and Cook, recently tied the knot on a beach in Seattle over Labor Day weekend.

Stiles declared her pregnancy in June of this current year and uncovered that she had hitched Cook in September with a simple but straightforward photograph of her baby bump with the humorous caption, “Who doesn’t love a shotgun wedding?”

Stiles and Cook have been engaged since Christmas of 2015.  The two had first met on the set of the film Go With Me released back in 2015 where cook was working as a camera assistant.  Sounds like there will be plenty of great home videos in the future for this happy couple.
