Kim Kardashian West: I’m Skipping the Daily Donuts During My Second Pregnancy

06/02/2015 at 09:10 PM ET

Kim Kardashian West overcame threatening rain, live country music blasting from honkytonks and laryngitis to promote the launch of Hype Energy USA in Nashville Tuesday afternoon.

“I have a slight case of laryngitis and I can’t take antibiotics so I’m doing the best I can with natural remedies,” the reality star, 34, told PEOPLE. Wearing a flesh-colored pleather sheath with a plunging neckline and stiletto sandals on the white-carpeted stage, she gamely pressed on with a slight — and sexy — rasp.

Kardashian West — who just announced her second pregnancy with husband Kanye West — has also had to temporarily give up the energy drink.

“I haven’t had it since I found out, but I used to drink it every morning when I got up. I’m not a big coffee drinker but when I’m getting up at 5 a.m. to work out, which is when I get it done, I need something to get me going. That’s when I was heavily working out, which is not happening right now!”

The Truth About How Kim Kardashian West Got Pregnant Again

Having a big family was always a dream of Kim Kardashian West‘s — and something she just assumed would fall into place when the time was right.

But after having daughter North, who turns 2 on June 15, the reality queen had an inkling things might not go as smoothly the second time around. Her first pregnancy ended in a complicated delivery due to preeclampsia, a potentially dangerous condition in which a woman’s blood pressure skyrockets during pregnancy, as well as placenta accreta, where blood vessels from the placenta grow into the uterine wall and remain attached.

Kardashian West, 34, and husband Kanye West, 37, tried to expand their family for eight months, but it wasn’t until the couple had the help of in vitro fertilization that they were able to conceive.

“Kim also had three surgeries to repair her uterus,” a source close to the star tells PEOPLE. “The inner lining had been so damaged that she was told conceiving on her own wasn’t possible.”

With the help of her fertility doctors, Kardashian West had IVF treatment with hormones four months ago, which sadly didn’t take.

The next month, the couple conceived using IVF, but on Kardashian West’s natural cycle, without hormones. (And no, the source says, she isn’t expecting twins!)

When thinking of ways to describe Jude Law, “uncool” might not be the first word that comes to mind.

Apparently, his children think differently.

“I am finally back in the good books — I’m finally cool dad again,” the actor, 42, tells PEOPLE at the New York City premiere of Spy, in which he costars alongside Melissa McCarthy.

What’s helped him earn back the title? His latest film.

“For a few movies they were like, ‘Uhh yeah that was okay, yeah that was good, uh, yeah yeah,’ ” the father of five jokes of his children’s reactions to his roles. “Now with this one it’s like, ‘Oh my God, you’re in a movie with 50 Cent and Melissa McCarthy, well done, man.’ ”

Law’s elder son, Rafferty, is now learning what it’s like to be in the spotlight as he enters the entertainment industry via catwalk. The 18-year-old is in a band called The Dirty Harrys — for which he writes all the songs — and has recently been modeling for designers like DKNY.

At the CFDA Fashion Awards on Monday, Chelsea Clinton took the stage to pay tribute to Oscar de la Renta‘s legacy and to his legacy and his “generous spirit,” “generous mind” and “limitless heart.”

Their last conversation was all about Clinton’s daughter, Charlotte, who was not yet two months old at the time of de la Renta’s death in October at the age of 82.

Clinton called the designer to thank him for a pink dress that he had knitted for her daughter with husband Marc Mezvinsky. When Clinton asked after de la Renta’s health — he died of complications from cancer — the designer only wanted to talk about Clinton’s new arrival.

Taye Diggs: Being a Good Father Starts with Showing Up

06/01/2015 at 03:00 PM ET

Being a fabulous father starts with one easy step, says Taye Diggs.

“Be there. How about that? Show up,” the actor, who has teamed up with Dockers to star in their Father’s Day #DadJam video, tells PEOPLE.

And the benefits go both ways: Diggs, who is dad to Walker Nathaniel, admits there is nothing better in life than spending time with his 5½-year-old son.

“For me, the greatest thing about being a dad is a tie between when I haven’t seen my son in awhile and he runs to me and says, ‘Daddy’ and when he’s asleep and I’m carrying him to the bed,” he explains.

The Murder in the First star jokingly adds, “Ah, he’s so cute when he’s asleep.”

Scott Porter: Why We Named Our Son McCoy

06/01/2015 at 01:30 PM ET

Scott Porter and his wife Kelsey‘s decision to name their newborn baby boy McCoy Lee may have been a little off the radar, but there was definitely a method behind the madness.

“We really liked ‘C’ names,” Porter, 35, told PEOPLE at the Celebrity Basketball Spectacular at the Equinox Sports Club in Los Angeles on Saturday. “We thought about Colt. We liked that, but there’s so many guys named Colt.”

So then how did that lead to the name McCoy? “Well, there’s a Texas quarterback named Colt McCoy. I said I wouldn’t do Colt, but I’d do McCoy, secretly knowing my favorite X-Men character is the Beast, Hank McCoy,” shares Porter.

“So there’s a little comic book reference in there, a little football reference. We gave him a strong enough name that he could be a superhero or a football player.”
