Vanessa, who is married to former 98 Degrees singer Nick, was spotted in New York while loading her bags into a car that was parked outside her hotel.
The star had been in Manhattan to promote her new TV show Dads and, while there, celebrated son Camden's first birthday with Nick.
But it was time to return home yesterday (17 September) and 32-year-old Vanessa was pictured as she left her hotel with Camden, who was strapped in a car seat.
Wearing in a red and black checked shirt, blue skinny jeans and ankle boots, the mum-of-one was dressed perfectly for a sunny autumnal day in NYC.
The actress' long dark hair was styled half up and half down and she finished off her look with a pair of simple stud earrings.
We're not jealous of how amazing she looks....much!
