Robert Downey Jr. Says He Was Terrified During His Son’s Birth

Now that Robert Downey Jr.’s life has turned around for the better, he is enjoying his success as one of Hollywood’s go-to actors and his life as a dad at home. The “Avengers” actor opens up to Esquire magazine about how he felt “terrified” during his son Exton’s birth and his life as a father now.

Here are some highlights:

On his son’s birth: “There was all this trepidation, all this projection, all this anticipation and goodwill and a good vibe about it. But what you’re squeezing to the side — or what’s in the glove box — is these thousands of forms of fear. And then he was born and they’ve all just kind of scattered now. It seems like he’s always been here.”

On being a good parent: “Am I going to know what to do with them? Does any new parent, even if you’re not a first-time parent, ever really know what to do? Only thing you have to do, the only requirement, if you can hack it, is to not transfer your own discomfort in the moment to this fresh soul, right? You got to be mindful.”

On fatherhood: “Every dad casts a shadow, you know? And that shadow is you’re disappointed, you’re resentful, or you feel so supported and loved you don’t understand why life is so hard anyway. Or, you know, it’s so long and so dark that you can never step out of it, so you might as well not even try. Right? So hero to me is not applicable to the human experience.”

Heidi Klum Opens Up About Her Split From Seal

According to celebrity mom Heidi Klum, she is taking it one day at a time when it comes to her split from her husband of seven years, Seal. The German supermodel is finally opening up about her life post-split and how she is handling being a single mother in the latest issue of Allure Magazine.

In the interview, where she also talks about plastic surgery and her life before her modeling days, Heidi also says that she “wouldn’t change anything” when it comes to her marriage to the chart topper. She tells the mag:

“It’s hard, just like for other couples. People go through our trash cans. It’s crazy. And you know, we have four kids; they have to go to school. You know, I wouldn’t change anything. If I had to go back in time and say, ‘I should have changed this or that…’ No. I don’t resent anything that ever happened. Things just turn out the way they turn out… I’m still in the eye of the storm now, and it’s all a little bit crazy. But sometimes you have to be apart in order to figure it out.”

Harper Beckham Takes A Stroll With Her Nanny

David and Victoria Beckham‘s daughter Harper Beckham was spotted taking a stroll with her nanny while out and about near Beverly Hills, Calif. on Monday afternoon.

Little Harper, who is going to celebrate her first birthday in July, looked like she was enjoying the fresh air and California sunshine as her nanny pushed her around. I just love how dark and thick Harper’s hair is – she is too adorable! I’m sure her fashionable mother is loving it too. :-)

It looks like this was a mommy and daddy date as Alanis’ cute little tot Ever was probably at home with his nanny. Hey, even celebrity mothers and fathers need a little “me” time once in awhile with their hectic schedules. :-)
