Angie Harmon and her daughters — Finley Faith, 6, Avery Grace, 4, and Emery Hope, 10 months — appear in the latest milk mustache ad for the got milk? campaign, and celebrated with an unveiling of the photo at Paramount Studios in Hollywood, Calif. on October 13th.
Celebrity Baby Blog had the chance to speak with Angie about the campaign, her daughters with Jason Sehorn, and the family’s Halloween plans.

First off, how did the shoot go?
Angie Harmon: It was incredible and to be honest, we were only on set for 30 minutes. It was amazing, the photographer had this insight into who Finley was, who Avery was … even the baby, she knew exactly how she should be held.
You look at this ad and you know, that is exactly who Finley is, that’s exactly who Avery is. We call Emery “little pounce” because her eyes are always so big and she’s always so interested in the world — and the lady captured all of that.
That’s what’s so amazing — she captured their personality in one picture. All three of them. And mine.
Are you a fan of the drink?
AH: Yes, I like it, and my kids love it. They drink chocolate milk all day long. I know I’m giving them milk, I know it’s got chocolate in it, that’s totally fine with me.
I actually did a lot of research with the milk people and I said I felt guilty giving them three glasses of chocolate milk a day. They said no, it’s fine, because the chocolate is not overbearing in any way and the sugar doesn’t lessen the benefits of the milk. I’ve learnt so much through them.
What are the kids’ thoughts on this event?
AH: I want to make myself clear; this isn’t Angie and the introduction of her three daughters into show business. This is a healthy campaign for healthy images and for girls.
I think it’s very hard in this day and age to raise little girls with morals, ethics and values, and them knowing that they are precious creations and that they are important. And this is why this is so important to me.
It’s not like we’re shooting this gratuitous campaign, it’s something that is good for kids, it’s good for the family. The kids don’t know that this is a campaign — they don’t understand that this is for a magazine and I want to keep it that way. If I see it in a magazine, I’m not going to show them. They just think we’re having a big party because we’ve taken a picture and I don’t have any problem with that. I like it like that.
Finley just celebrated her sixth birthday. Was there a celebration?
Finley’s got her first bicycle, it’s really exciting. She loves bugs and frogs and lizards — Finley had a bug party.
Plans for Halloween?
AH: Finley’s being Batgirl only because it was all black and shiny, she’s my tomboy. Avery’s being Strawberry Shortcake only because there’s a pink wig, she’s my little diva.
Emery is going as a little butterfly or a flower, I haven’t decided yet. She might go as both; there might be an outfit change, just because I can! This is the only year I can do it to her!
Favorite holiday treat?
AH: Oreos. For Halloween they’ve put out these orange ones, and they also have the fudge-covered ones at Christmas. They’re horrible people — these things have become a weakness.
What’s the best holiday present you’ve ever received?
AH: Emery. She was supposed to be a New Year’s baby, December 31st, but she came on December 18th.
