Robert Downey, Jr. Jokes: This Pregnancy Has Been ‘Extraordinarily Tough’ on Me

10/31/2014 at 03:00 PM ET

Though Robert Downey, Jr. was the one being celebrated for his body of work by the British film and television community based in Los Angeles, The Judge star made a point to pay a loving tribute to his pregnant wife and soon-to-be-born daughter.

“It’s going to be a good date night,” Downey, 49, told PEOPLE as he and his very expectant wife and film producing partner Susan, 40, arrived at the BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards in Beverly Hills on Thursday, where he was receiving the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film. The actor was in high spirits squiring his wife down the red carper, and was looking forward to the imminent birth of their daughter (the Downeys are already parents to son Exton, 2½, and Downey is father to 21-year-old son Indio from a previous marriage).

“It’s just the uncertainty of how nowadays you have all these things where you think you have much more of an understanding of what you’re going to get,” said Downey. “And then this little soul lets herself be known to you, and it’s just like: you don’t know anything. It’s great!”

Happy Halloween! Celeb Kids Show Off Their Spooktacular Costumes

10/31/2014 at 01:32 PM ET

Move over Pepé Le Pew!

Sixteen-month-old North West may not yet be old enough to fully understand the delicious candy that comes along with a good trick-or-treat outing, but she sure does make the sweetest little skunk for Halloween.

Mom Kim Kardashian shared some Instagram pics Friday of her toddler wearing her black and white skunk suit, complete with a curled tail and some spiky white fur.

“A skunk is on the loose!” wrote Kardashian, 34, in another shot that shows North romping across a matching black and white checker-boarded floor. “My little stinker is waiting to show daddy her costume. Halloween has come early this morning.”

10/31/2014 at 12:00 PM ET

Alicia Keys is just two months away from giving birth to her second child — and no one’s more psyched than her 4-year-old son Egypt Daoud.

“He is excited to be a big brother,” the singer told PEOPLE at Keep a Child Alive‘s Black Ball at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City on Thursday night.

“I think he’s super excited because he’s not going to be the youngest anymore,” she shares. “He’s always kissing my belly.”

Jenna Bush Hager: What My Mom Taught Me About Parenting

10/31/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

Jenna Bush Hager has always gravitated toward kids — she was a teacher before traveling Latin America with Unicef meeting mothers and their children — but the NBC correspondent says everything changed when she had a baby of her own.

“Having Mila has really changed everything for me. It’s put in perspective what really matters,” she told PEOPLE over the phone Thursday. “There are days that something doesn’t go your way and you feel frustrated, and then I realize I have this amazing, beautiful being that’s part of my life.”

The former first daughter, 32, and husband Henry Hager, 36, welcomed daughter Mila, now 18 months, last year. And she says her work with Unicef (which held its annual Masquerade Ball Thursday night) turned out to be prep work for parenthood.

“When I traveled to speak to these mothers and listened to their stories, it was hard to relate: I never knew the love of being a mom,” she says. “And they taught me that all moms want the same thing — their kids to live happy, healthy, productive lives.”

The Halloween witches are brewing up something sweet!

Before your costumed kiddies crash from a surplus of sugary treats, cuddle up with your little ones to read the tale of SwitchCrafted – and introduce them to a few wise witches, who are in need of a helping hand.

Written by Audrey Kinsman, the 20-page book tells the story of the Switch Witches, a group of whimsical witches who rely on piles of candy that they can convert into energy.

And from the fuel for their brooms (because the gas station just won’t do!) to keeping their haunted huts warm, the little ladies are in need of a whole lot of colorful confections.

He’s getting an early start on staying up late — James Corden is a new dad.

The British actor and comedian, who will take the reins of The Late Late Show from the departing Craig Ferguson, and wife Julia welcomed their second child on Monday, Oct. 27, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.

Daughter Carey (mom’s maiden name) joins big brother Max, 3½, at home.

“I can’t describe how thrilled and honored I am to be taking over from the brilliant Craig Ferguson,” Corden, 36, said last month. “To be asked to host such a prestigious show on America’s No. 1 network is hugely exciting. I can’t wait to get started, and will do my very best to make a show America will enjoy.”

Milla Jovovich‘s daughter got her wish: She’s getting a baby sister!

“We’re actually having a girl so she’s so excited,” the actress, 38, told PEOPLE Wednesday at amFAR’s Fifth Annual Inspiration Gala in Los Angeles.

The news that Jovovich’s second child with Paul W.S. Anderson will be another daughter came as a big relief to the mom-to-be, who admits she was unsure the couple’s firstborn, Ever Gabo, would take well to having a brother.

“I was actually worried if we had a boy, what would happen to him,” she says with a laugh. “I was like, ‘I wonder how long he will survive in our house with that little girl pushing him and sticking her foot out and tripping him!'”
