Angie Campanelli

New mom to two boys, wife, step-mom, TV producer, entrepreneur & world traveler

Angie Campanelli's ideal world is kale-smoothie-coated, diet coke dipped and full of warm, sunshine.

Her reality is slightly different.

As a new mom, wife to TV personality Rick Campanelli, step-mom, and television producer, her world is more take-out filled, coffee stained and freezing fricken cold.

After 10 years in the 'glam' TV industry, Angie's worked for the esteemed CTV - The Marilyn Denis Show, Breakfast Television, CBS in New York, Entertainment Tonight Canada, Slice and Canadian Geographic.

Although she's interviewed some of the world's most high-profile people (Katy Perry, Barbara Walters, Reese Witherspoon, Jessica Alba, Heidi Klum, Gerrard Butler and countless others) nothing rattled her more than the arrival of her son in March 2014.

Like most ambitious, clueless new parents, she and Rick took Jack on dozens of trips, coped with infant colic, and pushed their relationship to the edge and back.

Join Angie here for snap shots of her chaotic, amazing, star-studded, upside-down world.

My Toddler Almost Died In My Arms

Don't ever think it will never happen to you, because it can, it might and it could even happen when you're sitting right there with your kids. Get rid of those small choking hazards. Just because they haven't swallowed one yet doesn't mean they won't. You just never know when.

Our Thigh Gap Obsession Worries Me for Young Women Everywhere

How I Became Addicted to Pumping Breast Milk

Conversations among friends and between strangers fueled my pumping obsession. Every time I thought I was ready to skip a session or wean my son, I felt this peculiar sense of failure. "Not yet..." nagged a little voice. I'd ask other people how their feeding was going and then persist with my own despite my frustration and annoyance. I also made the crucial mistake of reading popular parenting blogs where I'd see talk of only weaning well past the 12-month mark. I feel like I passed the first parenting test and when people converse about infant nourishment, I feel proud stating that I did whatever it took to give him the "best" start.
