There were smiles aplenty on Sunday at the Bowling for Buddies benefit, where celebrity parents and kids hit the lanes for a good cause — including Today show contributor Nancy O’Dell (left), who helped daughter Ashby Grace, 2 ½, get the ball rolling.

The event, presented by Audi and hosted by Lucky Strikes in Hollywood, raises funds for Best Buddies International, an organization that supports one-to-one friendships, integrated employment opportunities and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

He’s getting so big!

Kristy Swanson cheered on son (and recent birthday boy!) Magnus, 3.

He is the first child together for the 40-year-old actress and her former Skating with Celebrities partner Lloyd Eisler.


Greg Vaughan is on the move — from General Hospital to 90210 — and so is his son Jathan James, 2 ½.

Sitting (or maybe sleeping) this one out was Greg’s newest turkey, 5-week-old Cavan Thomas, his second child with wife Touriya Haoud.


Bowling was a family day out for Kellie Martin.

Accompanied by husband Keith Christian and daughter Margaret ‘Maggie’ Heather, 3, the trio paused for a quick photo before heading into the benefit.
