Every little girl dreams of being a princess, and lucky for Hayden Christensen and Rachel Bilson‘s daughter, Briar Rose, her name gets her one step closer!

Christensen opened up about fatherhood and the reason behind their 10 month old‘s unique moniker while promoting his upcoming film 90 Minutes in Heaven on Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family.

“There’s a Disney reference there, I suppose,” he told the show’s host. “The original Sleeping Beauty is called Briar Rose.”

While Christensen, 34, is a big Disney fan himself, he admits it was really Bilson who fell in love with the name first.

“We both love all things Disney — but Rachel especially was very keen on the name,” the actor explains. “We have Disney songs playing around the house 24/7 right now.”

Zoë Saldana knows all about body acceptance.

Shortly after welcoming her twin boys, Cy Aridio and Bowie Ezio, last November, the Star Trek Beyond actress began documenting her trips to the gym on her Facebook and Instagram. At the end of July, Saldana posted a selfie that gave fans a peek at her impressive progress (and those enviable abs!).

It was a proud moment for Saldana, who, at that moment in particular, hoped to inspire first-time moms. “We are stronger when we stick together — wishing each other good, cheering each other along,” she wrote on her Facebook page.

When it comes to embarking on a fitness journey, Saldana stresses the importance of appreciating one’s current state.

Watch Out, Tiger! Dave Annable Plans on Making His Daughter a Golf Star

08/31/2015 at 01:30 PM ET

To Dave Annable, being given the gift of a baby girl is like hitting a hole in one.

“I don’t think I’ve ever felt more love in my heart at that moment where I just was so happy,” the Heartbreaker star tells PEOPLE of finding out the sex of his first child with wife Odette, 30. “That’s a special relationship and that’s daddy’s little girl.”

And as their father-daughter relationship is sure to be unbreakable, Annable — who recently enjoyed a ‘mancation’ at the Angeles National Golf Club with some of his closest high school buddies, golfing and sipping on Mike’s Hard Lemonade — cannot wait to teach his “little angel” some of his skills out on the green.

“She’s going to be this mini Tiger Woods like on Kimmel or Fallon — she’s gonna be great,” jokes the actor.

Kim Kardashian West Shows Cleavage, Covers Up Bump on VMAs Red Carpet

08/30/2015 at 10:00 PM ET

Kim Kardashian West‘s pregnancy fashion parade continued on the VMAs red carpet Sunday night.

The reality star arrived — with husband and Video Vanguard award recipient Kanye West, decked in a grey sweatsuit — at the 32nd annual MTV awards wearing a neutral, cleavage-baring lace-up Balmain dress, complete with cargo pockets on her hips.

The expectant Keeping Up with the Kardashians star’s latest look skews more conservative than her usually revealing attire. Until now, the 34-year-old mom-to-be has kept her pregnancy style tight and sheer, from her see-through Proenza Schouler dress at the CFDA Awards in June to the body-hugging streetwear she rocked while in Paris for “pregnancy fittings” last month.
