Savannah Guthrie: “Try To Be Gentle On Yourself”

savannah-guthrie-ny-family

Today co-anchor Savannah Guthrie covers the May issue of New York Family and opens up about family life with husband, public relations and communications consultant Michael Feldman, and their 8-month-old daughter Vale.

On motherhood: “In my mind, of course, I always thought and hoped and wanted to have kids, but I never knew what it would be like to actually be a mom. I came home yesterday and she put her hands up and was jumping up and down in her highchair, just so excited to see me—I was like, ‘I feel like a celebrity because Vale recognizes me and knows me!’”

On being pregnant on TV: “Of course, it’s not easy, necessarily, as your body is changing, and you’re getting bigger and bigger, and you’re in the eighth month of pregnancy, and you’re like: ‘What am I going to wear today?’ And you’re doing that on national TV—so there were some days that were better than others, but mostly it added a real something special to the whole experience.”

On her best advice to new moms: “Just try to be gentle on yourself. Especially in New York, we have a lot of working moms and moms who have been successful in careers. We’re used to understanding a problem and executing a strategy at work. And then you’re at home with this little baby, and it’s just a whole new area and you know nothing about it, and you feel so helpless and you wish you could reason your way out of this situation—and you can’t! You just have to trust that you know as much about this, and about your baby, as anybody else. Don’t worry so much—that would be my best advice. I’d like to take it, too!”

Tom Selleck Has Not Named His Mustache (But We Don’t Think He’d Mind If You Have)

09/26/2014 at 01:42 PM ET

Tom Selleck may have one of the most famous mustaches in Hollywood (we’d say he’s tied with this guy for tops), but he doesn’t really take his facial hair that seriously. The 69-year-old actor (yep, Magnum P.I. is pushing 70 and still looking amazing) is featured in GQ magazine’s debut Age Issue and opens up about his iconic mustache.

First, things first: He’s never nicknamed the ‘stache (we know you’ve always wondered). “It’s coming back again, isn’t it? It was out,” the star muses of his distinctive facial hair style, adding that he doesn’t mind being viewed as the “godfather” of mustaches.

His advice for young men trying to grow one? “Go through puberty. Very important,” he jokes. “I don’t know, I know guys… Ashton Kutcher told me — I did a movie with him, I played his father-in-law — and he was joking; he said, ‘I can’t grow one.’ Part of that’s genetic. You either got it or you don’t.”

As for his milestone 70th birthday, the Blue Bloods star said it’s made him reflect more on his career.

“Yeah, 50 is one of those numbers. As is 60, as is 70,” he shares. “Well, I think the danger is, you can’t do it all. People say, ‘I don’t want to have any regrets.’ I don’t have. I’ve had bad breaks, and it was pretty tough getting to a level where I actually made a living in the business. It was pretty tough getting taken seriously. In the era I was growing up, a six-foot-four guy who looked like an old-fashioned leading man wasn’t getting any work. But I have a hunch it was tough for Dustin Hoffman, so there are crosses to bear.”

Do you think Selleck has one of the most iconic staches of all time? What do you think of his outlook on aging? Read more from his GQ interview, and share your thoughts below.

Rosie Pope’s Advice For Kate Middleton: “This Too Shall Pass”

IMG_7450

Rosie Pope is not only an actress, she’s also a household name in the parenting world. Pope, 34, is the founder of Rosie Pope Maternity, MomPrep and Rosie Pope Baby, as well as author of “Mommy IQ: The Complete Guide to Pregnancy.”

Just recently, Celebrity Baby Scoop spoke with the mom-of-four about how she balances work and home, what makes royal babies so exciting and her plans for Rosie Pope Baby.

CBS: The news about Will and Kate expecting baby #2 has taken the world by storm. What is it about royal babies that get the world so excited?
RP: “Being a prince or princess was probably everybody’s fantasy if only for a few moments as a child. To see it happen in reality is an amazing and magical thing and we get to watch the whole thing happen! It’s uplifting and the stuff of fairy tales but in real life.”

CBS: Kate looked so adorable during her first pregnancy; do you think she will duplicate her first pregnancy fashions or go with a different look?
RP: “Definitely duplicated but maybe she’ll get a little more daring now that she is confident in both how well the world received her fashion choices and in herself. First pregnancies feel so unknown and nerve racking and second pregnancies can be a little more relaxing. You are more used to the changes your body is making.”

CBS: As a maternity fashion designer, what advice would you give women who are pregnant and hoping to remain stylish?
RP: “Stay true to your sense of style and quite simply if it wasn’t something you would wear before you got pregnant, don’t wear it now that you are. We are lucky to have a lot of wonderful maternity designers today and so you can really find things that fit your new and changing body but are in align with the sense of style you have always had. I always keep this in mind when designing maternity clothes. Women want to feel like themselves as much as possible rather than trying too many new things in this very new world (to them) of pregnancy.”
CBS: As a mom of four, what advice would you give Kate about coping with morning sickness?
RP: “This too shall pass. It’s the only way to get through it because it is really not pleasant. She needs to use her support network to get rest and help with George. It is hard already being a mom taking care of your toddler while also trying to take care of yourself and the new baby. Kate is lucky to have help and now is the time to use it.”
CBS: What’s it like in your house with four active kids? What are they into these days? How do you keep everyone organized and keep your sanity?
RP: “It’s crazy but a beautiful kind of crazy! While schedules are so important to make sure we get everything done I have certainly learned to be more relaxed and go with the flow. I try and find those special moments of one on one time with my kids so that we connect in a very special way each day.”
CBS: As a working mom, how do you find balance between career and home?
RP: “I am still trying! One of the most important things are key touch points when I can. For us those are breakfast together in the morning and dinner together along with bath time and stories at night. Being there when they open their eyes in the morning and when they shut them at night are so important to me.”

CBS: Do you have any new projects you’d like to share with us?
RP: “I am working so hard on Rosie Pope baby, expanding the line and the distribution. I am so excited at the number of wonderful stores that will be carrying it come January. I am also planning to launch nursing as an extension of my maternity line next year too. If I totally give up sleeping I might finally finish my second book too ;)”
