Both supermodel Christy Turlington and Oscar winner Julia Roberts were photographed while running around New York with their children yesterday. I don't know about you, but I always enjoy seeing pics of celebs hanging with their kids without a nanny in tow!

As usual, Christy looked flawless while giving her 4-year-old daughter Grace (she'll turn 5 on October 25) a lift in Soho. Christy's husband is Ed Burns, so it's no surprise that the couple's daughter -- they also have a 2-year-old son named Finn -- is so beautiful! But Christy is more than just a pretty face. Although she already has a degree in Comparative Religion and Eastern Philosophy from NYU, the New York Daily News is reporting that Christy is planning on going back to school and will study maternal and child health at Columbia University. "I have explored several career paths and have discovered that in addition to being a mother, a career in service is most fitting," she told the paper.

On the other side of town, Julia was spotted pushing her 3-year-old twins Phinnaeus and Hazel (they'll turn 4 on November 28) in a double stroller. (How cute is little Hazel napping?) While the "Erin Brockovich" star hasn't been hitting the books like Christy, she has been busy making appearances on the East Coast at events such as the Stand Up for a Cure concert. The actress also hosted a gala at the Westport Country Playhouse in Connecticut on Monday. Julia told the audience that when Joanne Woodward (the playhouse's artistic director and wife of Paul Newman) asked her to take part in the event, she just couldn't say no. Apparently it is possible to be a normal mom by day and a glamorous movie star at night!
