Happy <a href=/tags/0/mothers-day>Mother's Day</a></strong>! If you're a mom, you know every time you've welcomed a child is magical. Becoming a mom for the first time is also an additional joy, and plenty of the stars did just that over the last year!
<p>Hollywood stars are no exception, of course, with plenty living their lives in the spotlight as moms, raising their children in the business – and some opting to keep their kids' lives quiet to maintain their privacy. Motherhood has been an incredible experience for all of them, and there are many who became moms for the first time over the last year.

<strong>Adapted from <a href="/magazine/679">Issue 679</a> of <i>HELLO! Canada</i></strong>
<p><strong>By Alison Eastwood</strong>
<p>Slipping out onto the expansive deck of her Blue Mountain home with its endless, idyllic landscape, <i>Dateline</i> correspondent <strong>Andrea Canning</strong> is the picture of serenity – for about 60 seconds, until our conversation is punctuated by one curious child after another squeezing through the screen doors in search of Mommy.
<p>No interruption fazes the Canadian-born 46-year-old mother of six, who remains unruffled despite the fact that she hasn’t had a chance to fix her hair and makeup (she does it herself) or even change her clothes ahead of our imminent photo shoot. Not to worry, though – we can tell Andrea is one of those people who rolls out of bed looking effortlessly camera-ready, just like the characters in her favourite 1990s show, <i>Melrose Place</i> (these days, she has <strong>Heather Locklear</strong> on speed dial).
<p>As she gently shoos a child away yet again – “No, we can’t play music outside!” – we discuss the challenges of keeping a half-dozen kids occupied at any given time.
<p>“I’ve lost count of how many iPads I have!” Andrea jokes.
<p>Or maybe she’s not joking. She and her husband of 11 years, Lt.-Col. <strong>George Anthony “Tony” Bancroft</strong> of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, are parents to Anna, 10, Charlie, 9, Kiki, 7, Georgia, 5, Elle, 4, and three-month-old George, Jr. – a.k.a. Tripp (their only son, conceived via IVF). And although they’re model children, they’re also, well, kids. Shortly before our photo shoot, in fact, tiny Elle took scissors to her own hair! Andrea and Tony take it all in stride.
<p>“It’s a lot of work, but we don’t care. We love it,” she says. “Our motto is, ‘Just roll with it.’”
<p>Earlier this year, Andrea invited <i><strong>HELLO! Canada</i></strong> into her Blue Mountain home. Click through the gallery to see the best photos from our day with her, along with some key insights into her life – and how she raises six kids!
