"My little guy is just the little sunshine in my world, every single day," she said of her 11-month-old son, Isaiah, while chatting with E!'s Ryan Seacreast on the red carpet for Monday night's event. "He's back at the hotel right now and he's just smiley and sweet and happy and just, ah! He's the best."
