Someone new is taking center stage: Kimberly Caldwell‘s a mom!

The American Idol alum welcomed her first child, a baby girl, with husband Jordan Harvey on Wednesday, Oct. 7, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

Daughter Harlow Monroe Harvey arrived at 9:37 a.m., weighing 5 lbs., 2 oz.

After finding out the sex and deciding on a name, the couple confirmed the pregnancy exclusively to PEOPLE in June.

“We are overjoyed to be preparing for the arrival of our baby girl,” the parents-to-be said.

In August, Caldwell, 33 — who joked her daughter was constantly “wiggling around” in her belly — and Harvey, a soccer player, posed for a series of pregnancy portraits to kick off the third trimester.

The T-Shirt Swap Continues: Kanye West Takes Back Kim Kardashian West’s Maternity Shirt

10/08/2015 at 02:30 PM ET

Who needs two wardrobes, when you could just share one?

Kim Kardashian West‘s Ramones t-shirt is back in the hands of its rightful owner: husband Kanye West!

What the reality star treated as casual maternity wear is actually one of the rapper’s go-to t-shirts. Before Kardashian West nabbed it for dinner with Serena Williams in New York City last month, Yeezy sported it while posing with fans.

While the band tee — which features the name of the group’s album Mondo Bizarro — hugged Kardashian West’s growing baby bump (she’s expecting the couple’s second child, a son, in December), it fit loosely on her husband’s frame.

The 34-year-old instead revisited her go-to pregnancy look when the pair stepped out on Wednesday: a fitted dress and oversized jacket, which she’s been spotted in before.

It’s been 22 years since he graced the halls of Bayside High, but Mark-Paul Gosselaar still has fond memories of the show that made him a star.

Saved by the Bell just continues to generate more and more fans,” Gosselaar, 41, tells PEOPLE. “My 11-year-old and my 9-year-old, they binge watch it!”

Now the father of Michael Charles, 11, Ava Lorenn, 9, Dekker Edward, 2 and Lachlyn Hope, 7 months, Gosselaar, who is married to Catriona McGinn, is starring in a new comedy, NBC’s Truth Be Told, premiering Oct. 16.

“My character, Mitch, is powered by guilt,” says Gosselaar with a laugh. “I have a pretty guilty conscience too. I’ll do something and it will keep me up for hours at night, like, ‘I shouldn’t have said that.’ But in general, I’m pretty neutral. I don’t get overly excited in public.”

Sarah Michelle Gellar: Freddie Prinze Jr. Has More ‘Cred’ with Kids, I ‘Drive Carpool’

10/08/2015 at 01:00 PM ET

Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. are both starring on the upcoming season of Disney’s animated Star Wars Rebels but according to the actress, her husband gets way more credit for his role with their children’s friends than she does.

PEOPLE caught up with Gellar at the Mamarazzi event celebrating Foodstirs, the actress’ new baking kit venture, in New York City on Wednesday, and she revealed what their 6-year-old daughter Charlotte‘s pals think of her and Prinze’s roles.

“My joke is that — it’s not a joke, it’s kind of sad actually, because Freddie is on [Star Wars Rebels] and so all the kids at school are like, ‘That’s Charlotte’s daddy. He’s a Jedi,’ ” Gellar tells PEOPLE. “‘And that’s her mom, she drives carpool.’ ”

She jokes, “I was like, ‘I’ve got to get come cred with these kids!’ ”

When Kristen Bell found out that polio is still an issue for young children around the world, she knew she had to get involved.

“It’s a viral disease and it mostly attacks children under the age of 5 — it robs them of their mobility,” the actress, 35, tells PEOPLE. “I have two children under the age of 5, and I can tell you, their mobility is currently their most prized possession.”

“Their ability to scoot around, run around, jump off of things — I couldn’t imagine if they didn’t have the ability to do that,” she continues. “Thinking about what my kids would be like if they had polio, it’s unacceptable. I don’t want any mother to have to think, ‘What if my kid has polio?’ ”

Bell has joined Rotary’s This Close campaign to educate people and raise funds for the eradication of the disease.

Rachel Zoe Calls Her Brood a ‘Hair Family,’ Says Son Skyler ‘Loves’ His Long Locks

10/07/2015 at 04:00 PM ET

Rachel Zoe is ready to give son Skyler Morrison‘s long locks a trim, but says the tot won’t be happy about it.

“We are a hair family, between me and Rodger [Berman], we’re like Twisted Sister in the ’90s or something. We have so much hair,” Zoe tells PEOPLE.

The stylist and designer says the 4-year-old, who wears his brown curly hair long, is in need of a cut, while youngest child, Kaius Jagger, 21 months, has yet to make his first visit to the barber shop.

“Kaius has never had [a hair cut] — he does not have as much,” she shares. “When Skyler was Kaius’ age, he literally had a full head of hair. Skyler got his first haircut at 3. I think that we’ll probably do another one right before he starts school.”

Cate Blanchett Got Her Son’s Name from a Captain Underpants Book (Yes, It’s True!)

10/07/2015 at 02:30 PM ET

Cate Blanchett‘s older children’s monikers draw from a literary great and an iconic filmmaker, but when it came time to name her third child, the Oscar-winner turned to Captain Underpants.

Blanchett said during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that she and husband Andrew Upton had “run out of ideas” when Ignatius, now 7, came around.

“Dash, I guess came from Dashiell Hammett, and Roman … Polanski, but it’s also the French word for book, and Ignatius came from this book called Captain Underpants,” she says.

Every parent wants their child to follow in their footsteps, but Holly Madison is hoping that 2½-year-old daughter Rainbow Aurora‘s future path steers clear of the Playboy Mansion.

“When she is an adult, she will be able to do what she wants, but from day one I’ve tried to raise her to know she has value, her body parts have value, and she doesn’t have to do something cheap or tawdry to get attention,” Madison told Yahoo! Parenting.

“If she wanted to [be a Bunny] — and God forbid she did — I would tell her my whole experience with it and I’d be honest that it wasn’t what I thought it would be.”

In fact, Madison reveals, one of the reasons she wrote Down the Rabbit Hole, her tell-all book about her time as Hugh Hefner‘s number one girlfriend, was to make sure that Rainbow knew the whole story about her mother’s time in the mansion.
