Graco Guest Celebrity Blogger – Actress and Mom – Gena Lee Nolin

gln0001Best known from the international smash hit “Baywatch” – Gena Lee Nolin, actress and mom, is returning after having three children, Spencer (12), Hudson Lee (3) and baby Stella, with an entirely new image and outlook on life – and we’re thrilled to have Gena here with us on the Graco blog to chat about it!

Gena is set to host a new television series, which is currently in development. Also in the works, this gorgeous mom is working on a book which delves into her own experience of postpartum depression. After experiencing postpartum depression with all three of her children, Gena’s book aims to help other mothers going through the same thing. Now, Gena’s loving her time as a mom, and we’re so glad she was able to take some time to share her thoughts on mommyhood with us:

What is your favorite part about being a mom?

I love the responsibility of being a mom. Teaching them and watching them grow. It’s scary and fun all in one! Being a mom has been amazing and as I go I’m more and more aware of what’s really important. Like they say, don’t sweat the small stuff. It’s true. I think we all tend to worry about things that truly don’t matter in the grand scheme of things. Also, my patience is much better with age! I hold the record of watching the Wiggles 25 consecutive times… Yes!

What was your latest wondrous moment with your child?

Having a really positive adult conversation with my 12 1/2 year old son. It was beyond wondrous and so rewarding.

What is your favorite children’s book?

Jack and the Beanstalk — I wanted those magic beans! When I got older it was Judy Bloom’s — Super Fudge!

Is there any advice that you can offer to new Moms?

To be patient and enjoy, because it goes by really fast… Now, I sound like my mom!

What is your favorite Graco product?

The SnugRide. I used them with my two younger ones. I love Graco high chairs too! Everything is so functional and stylish!
