"She's the second baby, so we didn't have the big party we had with the first baby. She'll probably be in therapy because of that," the former child star quipped. 

"We had a family party," she continued. "And we got her a little smash cake which was her first real taste of sugar…and then she had the most hysterical sugar high you could possibly imagine. She was just flying high, it was adorable. But I think she knew that it was happening because when we were singing happy birthday she looked right at the camera."
