Like most A-list Hollywood actresses, The Other Woman star has a very busy schedule. But instead of getting a nanny for her two daughters, Maude and Iris, Mann has them star in her movies. The little starlets have acted alongside their mom in three movies: This is 40, Funny People and Knocked Up.

The American Pie and How I Met Your Mother actress is a pro when it comes to cuddling her two girls, Satyana, 4, and Keeva, 2, especially if they're under the weather. Hannigan recently told Hollywood Celebrity Scoop, "When my girls are sick, we cuddle a lot and wrap up in our favorite blanket and read books. There are lots of hugs. There is nothing like that smile a child makes after she has been sick — when you see it, you just know everything is going to be OK."

Some moms enjoy cooking for their tots, but Silverstone actually posted a video that showed her pre-chewing food then transferring it from her mouth to her son, Bear Blu Jarecki's mouth. While some moms consider this to be unhygienic, premastication — or kiss-feeding, as it's often called — has been practiced by humans for thousands of years.

The Frankie and Alice actress has two wee ones — daughter Nahla, 6, and son Maceo, just 7 months. While she's busy, the Academy Award-Winning star finds time to fit in breastfeeding. "You know, I'm working on a television show now, so I'm juggling working and being a mom and breastfeeding while I'm working," she recently told People. We can't wait to see Berry on the new CBS show Extant that premieres July 9.

Talk about a transformation — this New Jersey caterpillar turned into one fabulous mamma butterfly after she gave birth to her son Lorenzo. Now expecting her second child, Nicole Polizzi likes to boogie with her baby. "I played Lorenzo lots of music when I was pregnant, usually anything that played on the radio. And now, he loves music and is starting to dance. He's so cool," she told Celebrity Baby Scoop.

Best known for her work on shows like Alias and King of Queens, Dungey can be seen in the new film How to Make Love Like an Englishman, out later this year, also staring Pierce Brosnan. The mother of two young daughters, she told us, "I love a good dance party. At least once a week we get it going after dinner. Even my husband joins in if he's home early enough from work. Favorite songs include: 'Should I Stay' by the Clash, the Spanish version of 'You've Got a Friend in Me' from Toy Story and a mashup of Chic's 'Good Times' with 'Get Lucky' by Daft Punk. I love it. We get nuts."
