Easy does it! Minnie helps a wobbly Henry to his feet while visiting Cross Creek Park in Malibu on July 24. Though Minnie endured 25 hours of labor before welcoming her son, she says it was all worth it. "[The pictures] do make you kind of go, 'Owwww! Ouch!' but then I look at him," she's gushed. "I want another one of them."

Henry hangs out with his one and only – Mom! – while at a Malibu park on Mother's Day. While his pastel T-shirt is just too cute, mom's pal Ellen DeGeneres gifted him with one that's even more fun, which reads: "I may be BIG but my Mom is Minnie."

Baby Henry receives a squeeze – and a smooch! – from Mom while out for a coffee run on March 3 in Brentwood, Calif. Though Minnie calls Henry's dad "amazing and in his life," she's chosen not to reveal his identity for personal reasons. "My celebrity is not his celebrity," she's said.

A month after welcoming Henry, Minnie shared a personal photo of her little guy on her MySpace music page. While the nearly-10-lb. baby caused her some grief during labor, she never saw his size – or her efforts – as problematic. "I thought that ... it was his journey," she's said. "He wasn't in any trouble, there was nothing wrong. He was just a big baby." And a cute one, at that!
