Celebs We’d Hire to Babysit — and the Ones We’d Skip
This mom of two (with another on the way!) not only looks sweet and acts like the ultimate family woman, she seems super-prepared for most minor emergencies. In fact, she once told People, “If you looked in my bag, there’s a sippy cup in there right now!”
Supposedly, Hugh makes his kids go screen-free during the week, but baby won’t be bored with him as a caretaker. He sings. He dances. He’s easy on the eyes. Baby will love him.
Yup, she’s totally America’s sweetheart, which is why we picture her as our (gorgeous) next-door neighbor who’s happy to pop over and watch the kids. Plus, she seems totally gaga over her adorable son, Louis.
We get the impression she really likes kids — look at all that work she and Wills did for UNICEF. Bonus: She’d probably give our kids a much-needed etiquette lesson while we’re gone.
He’s got the reputation for being a huge practical jokester, so we think he’d be just fun-loving enough to keep baby in good spirits while we’re away. And yes, we’d totally nanny-cam him and watch the footage later.
We love the idea of Zooey (who sings in indie duo She & Him) singing baby a lullaby at bedtime. And if she’s anything like her character on New Girl, she’s got endless energy to keep up with baby.
The Office star — who’s a mom of one — probably doesn’t have time to babysit our kids, but if she did, we’d hire her in a heartbeat. She’s got a great sense of humor, and honestly, she just seems nice.
_ Now for the ones we wouldn’t hire: _
Don’t get us wrong — we love Gwynny. But we somehow wouldn’t feel right having her in our non-GOOP-worthy (read: untidy) homes and think she might judge us for those non-eco-friendly plastic toys we let our babies play with.
It’s not Gaga herself we have a problem with, it’s that she’d probably wear something to the babysitting gig that was totally not baby-proof.
We don’t really need to explain this one to you, right?
We’re just picturing baby crawling off into the next room to play with electrical sockets or sharp knives, without Hef even noticing she’s gone.
