With Hudson comes humor! Lindsay Price welcomed her first child, son Hudson, with her chef fiance Curtis Stone in November 2012, and the new mom tells Us Weekly she hasn't stopped smiling since. "I have to have a better sense of humor than I did before," the actress said with a laugh when asked about her approach to life since giving birth.

The Beverly Hills, 90210 and Lipstick Jungle alum, 36, explains that her priorities quickly shifted in the time since her baby boy came into the picture.

"Work used to be the No. 1 important thing to me. Everything revolved around it and to have a new perspective and have something else, my family, not just being a mom but being a part of an incredible family of my own it makes me have a different perspective on life that I think is richer," confirms Price, who has a built-in mommy support system in celeb pals and fellow parents Sarah Michelle Gellar, Rebecca Romijn, Tiffani Thiessen and Sara Rue.

At home with Hudson and Stone, 37, Price is always on the go -- and is choosing not to obsess over her post-baby figure like some other moms.

"I'm almost [back to my original weight] but I haven't stressed about it. Curtis is like, 'taste this salted caramel pot-de creme.' I can't not taste his work because it's his passion, so it's a struggle to keep the pounds off," Price says. "I think life is about being healthy and happy and I'm running around after Hudson all the time. I'm never sitting down!"
