So, Hef had his annual Playboy Halloween party over the weekend—a party filled with all sorts of celebrities, booze, possibly sex and well, The Grotto. One celebrity in attendance was Fraiser's Kelsey Grammer along with his new wife Kayte Walsh and their newborn daughter Faith. Yep. You heard that right, newborn. My head is shaking furiously at this one especially because I'm a firm believer in not letting your life change TOO much when having a baby, but as the "responsible" adult, dad should draw the line somewhere. I'm thinking that somewhere is the Playboy Mansion.
TMZ first broke the story and had a photo of the baby, sound asleep on the floor of the party being minded by a girl drinking some sort of cocktail:
Like I said, this is a head shaker to me. Kelsey jumped on this really quickly, and released the following statement today (via Jezebel) (Tuesday):
"Kayte is breast feeding and we do not have a nanny or a trusted babysitter at this time, so Faith goes everywhere with us. We enjoyed the party with a few of our friends, the baby slept as her ears were covered the entire time and we left shortly after midnight."
OK. I'm a pretty new age mama, we've taken Henry to all sorts of fun events that he's thoroughly enjoyed and we've been able to have some semblance of normalcy. Hell, when he was like three weeks old, we took him to a pub in town for dinner after my mum's funeral. He loved seeing the live Scottish band play and I got to enjoy a much needed pint of Guinness. But the Playboy Mansion is not The Caledonian.
I've seen babies at all sorts of gatherings, even this year at Blissdom—a super cute Kermit baby and mama Miss Piggy at the costumes and karaoke party. But the Playboy Mansion? If you don't' have a trusted babysitter, I would weigh what sort of event this party would be. Dinner party? Sure. Small house party? Why not. Hell, even a concert (we've seen many small tykes at shows either sleeping or watching with their protective head gear on). But I think the Playboy Mansion is a little much.
And the fact that the baby was just left asleep in her car seat? Besides all of that, were her ears covered with a blanket? A party of that caliber requires protective gear to block out the noise like the awesome headphones we've seen many a baby wear at concerts.
When Playmates are tweeting things like, Why the fuck does Kelsey Grammer have a baby at the Playboy Mansion? you know he's done something wrong.
So, spill it! What do you think of Kelsey's Playboy baby and his reasoning?
