Keeping kids happy is hard work. They're fickle, they get bored easily, and they require constant attention.
For many moms, planning playdates with other children is an easy way to keep their kids happy, healthy, and entertained. From Jessica Alba to Christina Milian, these stars love to have playdates with other famous kids:
1. Christina Milian & La La Anthony
Christina Milian and fellow Latina mami, La La Anthony, took their children, Violet and Kiyan, on a precious playdate to Taste Buds, a New York City establishment that hosts cooking parties for parents and kids. The foursome participated in a cooking class together, and both mothers were excited to get their kids out of the house -- and teach them a valuable new skill.
2. The Devious Maids
The gorgeous, talented women of Devious Maids work long hours on the set of the Lifetime drama -- plus, most of them are mothers! It’s no surprise that the comadres all bring their children to set to play together. Roselyn Sanchez’s daughter, Sebella Rose, Judy Reyes’s daughter, Leila, and Ana Ortiz’s children, Paloma and Rafael, all love to play together while they mothers work. Ana Ortiz told us about the huge role her on-set family plays in raising her children. “I have a lot of support on set,” she said. “That’s a really wonderful feeling. We can bring our kids there to work.”
Even Dania Ramirez’s newborn twins, Gaia and John, are getting in on the fun!
3. Mariah Carey & Swizz Beatz
Mariah Carey and husband, Nick Cannon, met up with fellow parents, Swizz Beats and Alicia Keys for a playdate with their little ones! The superstar dads both tweeted about the playdate and Instagrammed photos racing toy cars with their kids!
4. Nicole Richie & Tobey Maguire
Mom-of-two Nicole Richie took her children, Harlow and Sparrow Madden, to play with fellow celebrity kids, Ruby and Otis Maguire. Tobey Maguire’s children and wife, Jennifer Meyer, all had a fabulous time with the Maddens at a birthday party in Beverly Hills, Calif. Too cute!
5. Jessica Alba & Eric Dane
Dr. McSteamy, Eric Dane, and Sin City star Jessica Alba love to join their children at the park for sunny playdates. Alba’s daughter, Honor, and Dane’s daughter, Billie, were spotted at a California park, enjoying themselves on the swing set in matching pink outfits.
