There are times that I see celebrities with their children in the tabloids or on television and I wonder what they're thinking.
The crazy names, the outlandish outfits, a lifestyle that is just so far from what might be considered "normal" that I wonder how these poor kids even stand a chance at having any semblance of a traditional childhood.
To the opposite effect, however, I love the stars that seem to act as if they truly are regular people. They don't hand their kids off to a nanny 24 hours a day, they give them names that are names (not fruit or objects), and they dress them in the same high quality, stylish items that you or I might select as well.
One more "normal" celeb trait? When they're just as excited as I would be when they discover that The Children's Place has a new collection out that features the most adorable pieces that fit right in with their mission of being fashionable as well as affordable.
This past weekend in LA at the pre-Emmys, some of Hollywood's finest stopped by to pick up must-haves from The Children’s Place. The A-listers' favorite items from the fashion value brand? Knit animal hats for girls and graphic tees for boys! Clamoring for the hats and tees, the stars picked up pieces for their kids, grandkids, nieces and nephews and shared their excitement over the collection:
"This is something that Brad and Angie’s kids would wear! So cute." – Brenda Strong, Desperate HousewivesMore celebrities that got in on the action of oohing and ahhing over the latest collection were Emmy Award-winner Melissa McCarthy (Mike & Molly) who tried out the adorable Owl Critter Hat...
"This stuff is really fun, I wish I was young again." – Christopher McDonald, Harry’s Law
"Great that you guys have redesigned. Absolutely love the clothes!" – Sharon Leal, Hellcats
"I'm obsessed with my nieces and nephews. They would love these hats and clothes! I’m bringing them into your Grove store." – A.J. Buckley, CSI: NY
"This is freakin adorable." – Michael Trucco, Fairly Legal
...Maria Canals Berrera (Wizards of Waverly Place), who also picked up the Owl Hat for her younger daughter and the Frankenstein costume for her older daughter...
...Bailee Madison (Don't Be Afraid of the Dark), Sasha Pieterse (Pretty Little Liars), and Beverley Mitchell (Secret Life) also joined in on the fun of the Owl Hat. No one can resist the cuteness!
But that doesn't mean that the boys' clothing was ignored; far from it. Janina Gavankar (True Blood) and Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) were among the celebs that were happy to strike a post with their favorite boys' graphic tee:
With everything from casual basics to comfortable dress wear for newborns through size 14, the wide selection of mix ‘n match styles at The Children's Place are ones that kids and parents can both love. And, with their latest cute collection in stores now, you're not going to want to miss the opportunity pick up one of these adorable pieces for your own little celebrity.
