Amanda Seyfried had a baby about a year ago and has only started coming to events again this awards season. She’s worn some questionable dresses, but she’s calming down somewhat with her fashion, as seen at the Best Friends Animal Society gala earlier this week. This dress is by Christopher Kane and it’s one of those “scrolldown fug” dresses, to use a phrase coined by Go Fug Yourself. Amanda was presented with the Save Them All Spotlight Award for her animal advocacy work. She’s been involved in animal charities for years and is a proud dog mom to a beautiful Australian Shepherd called Finn. On the red carpet for the event, Amanda told US Weekly that she’s worked to make sure that Finn knows he’s special and that he’s still a part of the family now that there’s a new member. It was really sweet how she talked about him actually.
Seyfried was equally jazzed to talk about about the 13-month-old daughter she shares with her husband, Thomas Sadoski. (The couple have chosen not to share the toddler’s name publicly.)
“She’s dancing now and standing up. She doesn’t walk yet, but she’s rocking,” Seyfried told Us. “She knows some words too. It’s the best.” the Ted 2 star added that she learned about being a parent from being a dog owner too. The mom adopted Australian shepherd Finn in 2011.
“They have different needs in certain ways, physically,” Seyfried said of babies and pets. “But emotionally they need your presence.”
Seyfried, who calls Finn, “my son, my firstborn,” makes sure she carves out alone time for just the two of them. “We have a very, very intense emotional connection and I never want him to feel left out,” she told Us. “A dog has feelings too.”
Finn and his human sister, meanwhile, have developed their own special bond. “She’s very gentle with him and he really likes when she eats because she gives it to him now,” said the star. “It’s the cutest thing in the world.”
Honestly after I had a baby I wasn’t as attached to my two cats. I know cats are different than dogs but it’s like the baby took up all my emotional space. I never thought of the cats as my children or anything, they were just sweet animals who lived with me whom I was responsible for. Maybe I would feel differently if I had a dog though. Do you think Amanda and her husband are planning on having more kids soon? That line “my firstborn” somewhat suggests that. If she has another child and it’s a boy will she call Finn her “first son?”
Also, Amanda said that she wasn’t invited to the Mean Girls musical opening but that she would have loved to have gone. I’ll bet she’ll get some VIP tickets in the mail soon.
How cute is she with this puppy? (That’s not Finn! Finn is below, he’s a star.)

Amanda did a guest stint on Sesame Street! She hasn’t posted a single photo of her daughter to social media and as US mentions we don’t even know the girl’s name. Props for that although I’d love to see that baby. I bet she brought her with her to the Sesame Street set.
