With her daughter, Dixie Pearl, having celebrated her second birthday in June, Lily Aldridge could very well be in the middle of the mayhem that is tantrums, mood swings and the sudden mastery of the word “No!”

But fortunately for the relieved Victoria’s Secret Angel, little Dixie is whistling her own tune.

“She’s actually in her ‘great’ twos!” a beaming Aldridge told PEOPLE while hosting the launch event for the Velvet X St. Jude Charity Tee Collection. “I am so blessed, I really am.”

Fully aware that she may simply sound like a boastful mother, the model, who married Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill in 2011, points to the fact that as far as communication between her and her little one goes, all lines are open.

When Alison Sweeney’s kids open their lunch boxes, they never find greasy bags of chips or sugary cookies.

Instead, they’ve got good-for-you snacks like homemade trail mix and breakfast bars that The Biggest Loser host whips up in her Hollywood Hills kitchen. After years of struggling with her weight before finally getting healthy and fit, Sweeney has made following good nutrition principles a priority, not just for herself but for her husband Dave and their children, Ben, 9, and Megan, 5.

“My kids have known from the get-go that we all need to make healthy choices,” Sweeney tells PEOPLE. “They never expect to eat from the kids’ menu at a restaurant.” They don’t expect typical kid snacks at lunchtime either.

While she’s kept busy so far into her pregnancy, launching the new TNT series Legends, Ali Larter says things are about to quiet down.

“It’s time to slow down and stop working for a second and start being with my family,” the actress, 38, told PEOPLE at the Pampers #babygotmoves event in New York City Wednesday.

Already parents to 3½-year-old son Theodore “Teddy” Hayes, Larter and husband Hayes MacArthur are expecting their second child this winter, and have no preference for a boy or a girl: “[Just] healthy babies — all we can ask for. And that’s what I pray for,” she says.
