During the Paleyfest 2012 panel Thursday night, Emily Deschanel opened up to Us Weekly about what five-month-old Henry has been up to.
“He’s wonderful!” The Bones star, 35, gushed when asked about her son with actor Henry Hornsby. “He has two teeth…very advanced for his age. I don’t know if that’s advanced…but it’s unusual!”
Later on during the conference, Deschanel dished about the Season 7 moment Bones fans have been waiting for: the birth of Brennan and Booth’s baby. Unfortunately, Deschanel admitted the scene didn’t go quite as smoothly as she, or her costar David Boreanaz, hoped it would.
“That baby peed on us,” Deschanel laughed. “Henry [had] also peed on me that day…when it happened I said, ‘I’ve been peed on today by two different babies!'”
But despite the diaper-changing hazards she and her character face, the actress couldn’t contain her enthusiasm about her parenting experience in general. “I don’t get a lot of sleep, but I love it,” Deschanel told reporters. “Henry’s awesome!”

According to Tamara Taylor, her costar Emily is doing a great job balancing her hunt for fictitious killers on Bones and her newborn on the “extremely” baby-friendly set:
“Oh, my God. Henry is so beautiful,” gushed co-star Tamara Taylor, “He is such a smiley little lover. It’s so great getting our makeup done and hearing the baby like cooing in the trailer, it’s so nice to have that energy around.
“He’s got his little baby trailer. It’s nice that she gets to bring him with her so she doesn’t have to be away from him long,” says Tamara. ”She’s doing incredibly well. Really, I can’t imagine splitting my focus the way she is, and she’s doing a great job of it. She’s doing it all gracefully.”
Ryan Gosling, Emily Deschanel, Zooey Deschanel, Steve-O, Alicia Silverstone, Kristin Bauer and Bryan Adams are among a group of ten big name celebrities who have signed an open letter asking McDonald’s to switch to buying free range eggs.
In November one of McDonald’s suppliers, Sparboe Farms, was caught on film by Mercy for Animals torturing their hens. According to MFA’s website, footage of Sparboe Farms “revealed hens crammed into filthy battery cages and dead hens left to rot alongside birds still laying eggs for human consumption. The investigator also documented workers burning off the beaks of chicks without painkillers, sadistically and maliciously torturing animals, and throwing live birds into plastic bags and leaving them to suffocate.”
While McDonald’s dropped that supplier and publicly came out against them, MFA and this group of celebs don’t think it’s enough.
Their open letter says, “While MCDonald’s has already established a 100 per cent cage-free purchasing policy in Europe, your US restaurants continue to support egg factory farms that confine hens for most of their lives in cages so small they can’t even spread their wings, nearly anything that comes naturally to them. Common sense tells us that animals with legs and wings should be given the basic freedom to move.
“Sadly, there is not a single federal law to protect hens from cruelty from the time they hatch to the time they are killed. While MCDonald’s brags about the ‘billions and billions served’, millions of hens exploited for your restaurants are being grossly underserved. In fact, these animals are being abused in ways that would land your egg suppliers in jail, if dogs or cats were the victims.”
