OMG! I loved Punky Brewster soooo much! Does anyone else remember her super special treehouse!? Her daughter will LOVE getting to watch all the Punky Brewster episodes!
Soleil, 30, opened up about her life with her daughter, Poet Sienna Rose, 1. (Poet will celebrate her second birthday on August 24th!)
The most surprising thing about motherhood? “That I’m learning so much about myself through her,” Soleil told People magazine Saturday at the Chrysalis Butterfly Ball, a benefit for the homeless in Brentwood, Calif.
“Every day I look in her eyes, and I realize that she’s teaching me. I thought I’d be able to pass on so many lessons, but I think it’s mutual in that we’re teaching each other, and she teaches me about love and life every day. I have to remind myself, she’s a baby! Because she seems so much bigger than life.”
Soleil and Jason, 36, a producer of MTV’s Punk’d, met in 1996 when Soleil pitched him a film script while she was studying film at New York City’s New School University. They were married in Los Angeles in 1998.
Since giving birth to Poet, Soleil says she’s been staying in shape by “constantly running after her! And we do dance parties in the bedroom, so a lot of our exercises are about putting on Elmo and dancing to Elmo’s World on Sesame Street.”
As a former child star who survived early fame with her sanity intact, what would she do if Poet wanted to be an actress? “I don’t know if I’ll have a choice,” she said, “but whatever she wants to do, I’m going to try and support. If she’s anything like I was, my god.”
