Actress Megan Fox returned to the red carpet in Los Angeles on Friday (07Dec12) for the first time since giving birth to baby boy Noah in September (12).
The Transformers beauty was joined by her husband Brian Austin Green as she posed for photos in a fitted white lace dress at the March of Dimes Celebration of Babies luncheon, where another new mum, Reese Witherspoon, was honoured by the parenting charity.
The Legally Blonde star – who also welcomed a son, named Tennessee, in September (12) – was the guest of honour at the event and was presented with the March of Dimes organisation’s Grace Kelly Award by Elizabeth Banks in recognition of her status as a parental role model.
Accepting the award, mum-of-three Witherspoon recalled a story about a pregnant pal who called her as she went into labour to find out what to expect from the birthing experience.
The Oscar winner told the star-studded crowd, “She wanted to know how she was going to feel in that moment and what it would be like when you meet your baby for the very first time. And I was talking to Jim, my husband, and I said, ‘Can you imagine describing that moment of pure joy that happens when your child is in your arms for the very first time?’ I mean, what are the words?!
“We are parents that know the joy of having a beautiful, brilliant, joyful, perfect baby. That somehow heaven has opened up and delivered us an angel (who) looks adorable in every angle of an iPhone photo. And, in my case, looks gorgeous printed on a bag or a pillow or an iPhone cover – anything you can get on TinyPrints (printing website)!”
Model/actress Molly Sims and Hilary Duff and her husband, retired hockey player Mike Comrie, also attended the charity event.
March of Dimes was founded by U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1938 to combat polio and now works to help women through pregnancy and new motherhood.
