This "Top Chef" host has learned a lot about parenting since giving birth to daughter Krishna in February 2010. So what advice does she have for other moms? "You have to listen to your own heart and ask the women in
your family who you trust and have a lot of experience, and then you have to make the right decision that is best for your own family," she told Wonderwall in 2011. "No two situations are alike, and no two children are alike."
After Sheryl adopted son Wyatt in 2007, she decided she wanted a second child -- but it wasn't so simple. For a year, plans to take home different babies kept falling through. Then, in June 2010, she announced that she
had added son Levi to the family. Now her rocker lifestyle is much tamer. "My tour bus now is a family bus," she told New York Daily News in 2010. "I've got both my kids and everything that they count on to keep their lives normal on there, whereas before, my life was much more me-centric."
Sofia had her son, Manolo, when she was 19. And she says she loved being a young mom. "I had the energy for everything. My boyfriend now wants to have kids, and I don't even want to think about it. I would have to get into
that mindset again, the waking up early," the actress told Redbook in 2011. "My friends now are all panicking if they haven't found somebody to have kids with. It was never like that for me because I already had the kid!" And we bet Manolo's friends loved his young, hot mom.
When January's rep announced in 2011 that the "Mad Men" actress was pregnant, the rep said that she was "really looking forward to this new chapter in her life as a single mom." A true single mom, she is! In fact, Xander's
father remains a secret to this day. We're just glad January seems to be a more doting mother than Betty Draper.
Sandra planned on adopting baby Louis with her ex-husband, Jesse James. But, well, you know, that two-parent household was whittled down to a one-parent home. Since then, Sandra says her priorities have totally
changed, putting motherhood and Louis above all else. "Whatever next opportunity was given [after adopting] had to be an amazing opportunity for me and for my son, so that we had a great time," she said in 2011. "I was just so happy being a mom. I'm still very happy being a mom."
