Adding An Additional Title To My Bio

Whitney Reynolds

Well it's official! This week I will be adding an additional title to my bio... TWIN MOM!

As a kid I always dreamed of being a talk show host, yet also had the desire to one day be a mother. I am so thankful we live in a time, where I can do both! Having started my show at 23 years old, I feel most of my viewers have grown up with me. You've seen me through going from online to prime time, getting married, our first Emmy Nomination and now twins! I could not be more thankful for my support group... YOU!

This blog is an exclusive look at my journey to motherhood and the questions I've been asked along the way.

FAQ-

  • Twins, do they run in your family? YES- my maternal grandfather's mother was a twin, my maternal grandmother was a twin and my paternal grandmother had twins. #DESTINED
  • Fraternal or Identical? We are having fraternal boy/girl twins
heiner_family_maternity-7697.jpg
  • Biggest Struggle With Pregnancy? The first trimester you just hope and pray all is well. Pregnancy is a true test of faith.
  • When did you know you were pregnant? Right before the holidays. We found out with twins, after the New Year.
  • City or Burb family? We are staying in the city! Last year we bought a house in Lakeview and decided to plant our roots in the city.
  • Twin Names? Boy- David Acheson Heiner III "Acher" and Marlowe McKinley Heiner.

  • Maternity Leave? I will be taking a few months off in between seasons.
  • Nursery Theme? Noah's Ark "And Two By Two They Came."
  • Biggest Craving? Starbucks Bacon Gouda! I've had it every morning for 9 months
  • Best Parenting Advice? It will all be okay!
  • Mommy Van or SUV? I guess you could say a mix... The Volvo V60, Station Wagon

These last nine months have grown me immensely (In more ways than one LOL) and I look forward to what this week brings. Thank you again for all the encouragement and support. The best is truly yet to come.

A Good Excuse (TWO) Relax

Whitney Reynolds

Well I've held the title "Talk Show Host" for the last 7 years and in January I found out I'll be adding an addition title to my bio... TWIN MOM! Becoming a mother has been an amazing journey, the last 9 months have brought new challenges, joys and adventures to my days. Owning my talk show and pushing it to more markets, while carrying twins has made me the ultimate balanc(ER)ina! Creating a work/ life balance is something you hear entrepreneurs struggle with and in my case, I am constantly working on. Work is something that becomes routine and once we find our groove it is like second nature. For me life happens when I take time to slow down and appreciate all the blessings that surround us. So when choosing a babymoon destination (our last getaway before the twins come)... I wanted a place where we could unplug, be surrounded by beauty and enjoy each other.

 WELCOME TO CATALINA ISLAND!!!!

Whitney Reynolds

Catalina Island (Avalon) is officially one of the most beautiful places I've seen.  You can only get there by water or air. It's been the backdrop to many movies and a getaway spot for decades for celebrities. It's just over an hour boat ride from L.A., yet feels like you are in one of the most tropical places. This island has darling shops, delicious restaurants & beautiful beaches.

Catalina Express

Catalina Express

We started our venture on a Thursday, taking The Catalina Express from Dana Point to the island. We spent a few days prior with family prior in San Diego and this was the closest port. It was fun boarding the boat, seeing all the sun dresses, fishing poles and smiles from visitors just like us. On the ride over we saw dolphins, enjoyed coffee and talked with other passengers about the island.

Pulling into the island was a scene I will remember forever. The landscape of Catalina Island is truly beautiful with the houses tucked away on the hills, surrounded by the ocean. Once we arrived we checked into our hotel and got ready for stop #1- The Glass Bottom Boat Tour.

Glass Bottom Boat Tour

Glass Bottom Boat Tour

This boat tour is exactly what it's name says... A glass bottom boat. We departed from the central pier and then went out to sea and saw everything below. This was such a nice tour because you didn't worry about dropping your phone in the water while trying to take pictures. It was around 45 minutes in total and midway through the Captain stopped and explained some history of the island and what we were seeing below.

Glass Bottom Boat Tour

After the tour we walked over to the Casino (the island's main historic theater building) and went to The Catalina Island Museum. This was actually the last weekend the museum was located in the Casino, because it is moving into a much bigger space. I'd recommend stopping by the museum on the first day like we did, because you will learn so much about the island. It was fun to see who's been there, how it was founded and special memories the island holds. I personally loved discovering that Catalina is owned by The Wrigley Family who formerly owned the Cubs. Being from Chicago, I love my Cubbies and felt extra at home.

Before dinner we went back to the hotel to relax. We had a fireplace in our room which was perfect because at night the temps dropped down to the mid 60's. For dinner we went to Blue Water Grill- Avalon, a newly constructed restaurant in the center of town and right on the water. This was my favorite night out because we saw the most amazing sunset, while eating local bites.

Blue Water Grill Avalon

I'd recommend the scallops and as you and can see from the picture above, we tried a little bit of everything (IT WAS TASTY)!  That evening was so special because while we eating, we had a chance to talk about our twins and the adventure ahead, including choosing godparents. This setting really helped me unplug and enjoy the moment.

The next morning was every preggo's dream come true... The Taste of Catalina Food Tour. Six amazing stops around the island and all good food. This gave us a great sample of the cuisines Catalina had to offer. Our guide was perfect and not only knew a lot about food, but also the island's history. It was great because, you are walking in between the stops, so you don't feel guilty about all the outstanding food along the way.

My personal favorite was Steve's Steakhouse and the dish they served up (picture above)  This tour gave us a blueprint of the reservations we needed to make for the rest of our trip.

The next day I kicked things off with my first prenatal massage. David and Puffy (our dog) wondered around the island and grabbed coffee, while I was being spoiled. After the massage we went to the Casino for The Island's Annual Silent Film Festival. This is a yearly fundraiser and fun time for all, we were glad to be there that weekend.

Later that afternoon we decided to hit Descanso Beach and just chill.

Descanso Beach- Catalina Island

Descanso Beach- Catalina Island

Talk about a scene from a movie, this beach is a must see/do in Catalina! We sat out, watching the waves roll in and again dreaming about our future family.

The rest of the vaca was full of R&R and soaking in our last trip as a family two! This little island holds a very special place to my family. Now that I am back to the grind in Chicago, I understand the phrase... California Dreaming!

How Life and Laughter Go Hand In Hand

Whitney Reynolds

Coming up on The Whitney Reynolds Show we are talking a lighter topic- Life and Laughter. This week we look at how laughter overall makes life better.

Little did I know, when I was taping this show just a few week's later we would find out I was pregnant. Becoming a mom of twins and hosting a show leaves a lot of room for things to go wrong, major stresses to pop up and nerves to be shot, however I have learned that life is so much better with a smile. In life we can dwell on our problems or learn to laugh through our lessons.

This week's show is all about just that, LIFE AND LAUGHTER. Make sure to tune in on Monday May 2nd on Lakeshore PBS at 6:30 PM as talk through this topic with experts, celebrities and folks that have worked firsthand with this topic.

Kicking Off Season 6 with Sex Trafficking

Whitney Reynolds

It is such an honor to be entering another season. It's hard to believe this is our 6th season on PBS. We start airing here in Chicago, Monday April 25th on Lakeshore PBS at 6:30 PM and in our second market on WQPT, The Quad Cities in June.

Since we launched on PBS back in 2013 we have been a show dedicated to provoking positive change through tough topics. We want to talk about issues that other programs don't talk about or stay away from. The truth is each topic we present is a real issue that you or someone you know has or will go through. Even though it can be tough to hear, we always leave the viewers with hope and solutions.

With that being said, we are kicking off Season 6 with "Sex Trafficking."  This topic might seem out there for you, but what would you think if I told you, this could be happening in your own backyard. The truth is- Sex Trafficking is happening everywhere and it's time you know the facts.

whitney reynolds

Commander William Leen with The Cook County Sheriff's Police Department (picture above) explains the different forms it comes in. He also informs us on how social media is changing the scope of this crime.

Our lineup includes Pilar Dunning with "The Salvation Army's Stop It" Program, Caleb Probst with CAASE and Chris Baker from Ink 180. Every guests has a unique story that I can't wait for you to hear. Sex Trafficking comes in many forms and it's time we know how we can help stop this issue.

If you or someone you know is dealing with this issue CLICK THE CONTACT US PAGE and we will connect you with people to help.

Don't forget to watch EVERY Monday night on Lakeshore PBS at 6:30. Our season includes-

We featured topics close to heart and also raised money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society! Cherry on top- it was my big 3-0 birthday and at 9 PM we found out our twins' genders with everyone who attended.

We had the most amazing food vendors in Chicago bring their favorite dishes. BIG THANKS to- Johnny Van's Smokehouse, Kitty O'Sheas, Heartfelt Catering, Beef and Barley, Kenmare Catering, Rachel Rosenberg Arbonne Treats, Reggies Live, Nothing Bundt Cakes, Dinosaur Bar-B-Que and Goddess and Grocer.

The live piano music was flowing thanks to David Rothstein and the flower arrangements from Stems made the evening complete. On each table we featured topics that have aired on our show over the years. Some of them included Domestic Violence, Fear and Cancer. This whole event was a chance for our 250 guests to understand what we are all about and that is: creating a show that provokes positive change through tough topics.

Since the event fell so close to our 20 week ultrasound (2 days before) we decided not to find out the genders until the gala. At 9 PM we called everyone to the front and unwrapped two boxes with our twins' genders. WATCH- https://www.facebook.com/WhitneyReynoldsW3/videos/vb.9203122/10102604877591313/?type=3&theater

Adding Two More to The Team!

Whitney Reynolds

WE ARE ADDING TO THE TEAM - and this time it's internally. Being a Talk Show Host it's hard for me to keep my mouth shut. We have kept this news on lock down since mid December and I must say this has been a difficult task. Now that we are out of the first trimester we had to share the news - WE ARE PREGNANT.... WITH TWINS!

TWINS - Yes, we were just as shocked. Growing up I was surrounded by twins on both of my parent's sides (3 sets to be exact). We found out we were pregnant pretty early on and according to several blogs this could have been because the hormone level with twins is stronger. Going into our first ultrasound we were just hoping for a strong heartbeat and then we were told, "there's two!" 

DUE DATE - My Twinspirations (follow us on Instagram) are due in early August and WE CAN'T WAIT! Coming up on April 30th we will be taping a live studio audience show on "Parenting." Tickets will be given out for the audience at our April 2nd Gala. We hope to see you at both!

PARENTING 101 - Please give us your parenting tips because trust us, we need your help! TWEET @WhitneyReynolds. Thanks in advance for all your love and support. The best truly is yet to come! Don't forget to hashtag #VolvoFamily.

Taking a Moment To Be Thankful

Whitney Reynolds

      
                  Hello everyone! I wanted to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving this week! I for one am incredibly excited to eat some amazing food and be surrounded by family. It seems like this season of the year always goes by so fast and sometimes I feel the need to pump the breaks, take a deep breath and soak in all the good that has happened.


                  Our guests on the show this week spoke a lot about their success stories and how they got where they are today. This episode, "Rising To The Top" really strikes a chord with me; I’ve always dreamed about being a talk show host, and here I am doing it! With Thanksgiving coming up, it's the perfect time reflect on EVERYTHING good in our lives. Achieving our dreams and getting where we want to be in life is so huge, but we’re always striving for the next best thing. Sometimes I think we forget to stop and look around at everything we've already accomplished. I think we all need to take moments like that! Learning to be grateful for our past and hopeful for our future is such a great practice! SO TRY IT!!!

              Last but not least I want you to know how thankful I am for all of you. I wouldn’t be where I am today without my viewers; people who truly care about the show and the topics we touch on. In all my years working on the show, I have never stopped feeling incredibly thankful for you guys! I want you all to know that this Thanksgiving, I’ll be thinking about you.

2010 Season 1

2010 Season 1


                  Happy Thanksgiving everyone and ENJOY this Monday's episode "Rising To The Top" on Lakeshore PBS at 6:30 PM.

The Emmy Awards and our NEW SEASON

Whitney Reynolds

Whitney Reynolds and Dave Heiner

Whitney Reynolds and Dave Heiner

Last weekend was a complete fairytale. For the first time in my show's history we were nominated for an Emmy. This was not only my first Award's Show, but I also got asked to present. I walked the red carpet with my team, family and even with my fans LIVE via Periscope (FOLLOW @WhitneyReynolds). This picture above is one of those moments, I will talk about for years to come. No we did not win, but that's not my end all goal. MY MISSION- is to change lives, provoke positive change and help others, through our television program. Now that's what we will ALWAYS continue to do. I am however looking forward to many more nights like this one in the coming years.

BIG THANKS- to all the prep work that went in to my night! The good news is they are local for everyone who lives in Chicago and also online for everyone else. DRESS- Borris Powell, SHOES- Emy Mack, JEWELS- Accessory Mercado, MAKEUP- Starlight Makeup, HAIR- Robert Jeffrey Hair Studio, AIR BRUSH- Celebrity Skin, NAILS- Dynamic Salon! Love that all these folks have believed in me for multiple years and continue to support the show.

SEASON 5

SEASON 5

We are officially in week 3 of our fall season. Coming up tonight we are talking "Perinatal Loss." This show is beyond real. I am so thankful for our brave guests who came on and were honest about their personal journey. I had to take a break to just catch my breath. This topic will hit to the core. I know ANYONE reading this blog knows someone that has miscarried or had complication with their pregnancy. The stats of people impacted by this topic are off the chart and we hope tonight's show helps change the stigma around talking about it.

Still to come this season we have-

  • The Plus Size Movement
  • Suicide Prevention
  • Rising To The Top
  • A Life Story

REMEMBER- With Thanksgiving right around the corner, this is a great time to reflect on everything in your life to be THANKFUL for. We are surrounded by daily blessings, but sometimes we are too busy to see them. A grateful heart is a beautiful heart!

I want you to know how thankful I am for each of you! Your support and viewership is the reason we keep growing and reaching more people!

 

 

Food Allergies- My Personal Story

Whitney Reynolds

Well Hello Season 5-

Mark your calendars for an exciting new season of our show. Starting October 26th on Lakeshore Public Television we will be kicking off our 5th Season. Join us every Monday night at 6:30 as we talk through tough topics that are inspiring POSITIVE CHANGE.

SEGMENT SPOTLIGHT- Meet Jack the creator of "That Bites." A documentary on Food Allergies!

SEGMENT SPOTLIGHT- Meet Jack the creator of "That Bites." A documentary on Food Allergies!

 

Hello everyone! I’m so excited to be kicking off our new season, and especially with a topic I think most of us can relate to: food allergies. It’s a season opener I know you’ll want to see, because this truly affects so many people!

 


                  My first brush with food allergies was during one of the most important times of my life; my honeymoon. My husband and I were in Costa Rica having the time of our lives. We were in some really cool hot springs, having fun, and not at all stressing about the food around us. We ordered drinks, not thinking anything of it. Unbeknownst to us, one of the drinks had banana in it; something Dave is incredibly allergic to. If you ever thought it was impossible for a banana to jeopardize your honeymoon: think again!
                  I was so scared! What was supposed to be one of the most fun times for Dave and I became a huge frightening ordeal for us. He got awful stomach pains and hives; it was clear something had happened to him. We were incredibly lucky, and he was only out for a day of our honeymoon; but it could have been much worse. It was my first time seeing how food allergies can be truly dangerous.

2013 Honeymoon in Costa Rica

2013 Honeymoon in Costa Rica


                  After seeing my husband go through this, I realized how big of an issue food allergies really are; especially with children! When they’re at school, who knows what they’ll eat? And unfortunately, the way many people find out they have allergies is when they eat something for the first time as a child and get an allergic reaction.
                   Luckily with epi-pens, it’s easier to help someone who’s had an allergic reaction. Personally, I think everyone should have one on them; you never know when someone around you could eat a deadly banana! I think it’s important that we realize these allergies are a growing issue that we need to keep an eye on. Epi-pens are like tiny, life-saving magic wands! Why not have one? Especially in schools.
                  Living with food allergies is a stressful, hard task and sometime scary to order food even at restaurants. We’re so worried about whether or not to get fries on the side that we don’t realize our main course has food that will give us hives! There’s so much to keep track of! Watch our show and learn how to use an EPI pen and stay safe.
                  For those of you out there with intense food allergies, please be safe; and always make sure you know what is in your drinks! We will be live tweeting during the show @WhitneyReynolds so make sure to weigh in.

Also coming up this season-

  • Women In Sports
  • A Parent's Loss
  • The Plus Size Movement
  • Rising To The Top
  • Suicide Prevention
  • A Life Story
