“Lots of people warned me … [that] the baby period is not that exciting. But I am excited, actually. I thought, well, I’ll bluff through — but very little bluffing has been required,” he told The Guardian in 2012.

Lisa Loeb’s Album of Nursery Rhymes Will Have Your Kids Singing Cute Classics

10/12/2015 at 03:45 PM ET

The singer-songwriter behind ’90s classic “Stay (I Missed You)” is putting a new spin on nursery rhymes.

Lisa Loeb is releasing Nursery Rhyme Parade!, a collection of 35 familiar songs kids are bound to love. The project came about naturally for the mother of daughter Lyla Rose, 6 next month, and son Emet Kuli, 3.

“When I had my first child, I came back to the classic nursery rhymes through illustrated books, but in a lot of cases, I couldn’t remember the exact melodies,” Loeb, 47, says of the inspiration for the effort.

“I realized that the rhymes are so catchy, this generation should remember the melodies too. They are very simple and catchy.”

Jeffrey Donovan: My Daughter Asks Me to FaceTime with Her

10/12/2015 at 03:30 PM ET

Jeffrey Donovan has a successful acting career, but he admits he doesn’t want his daughter Claire dabbling in Tinseltown.

“Oh no, please no. This business is hard enough on me,” Donovan, 47, told reporters at FX’s Fargo season 2 premiere screening on Wednesday in Hollywood. “Who would want to wish it on a child?”

Although she might not follow in her famous father‘s footsteps, Donovan says his 2½-year-old daughter with wife Michelle already recognizes him on television.

“She sees me and she goes, ‘Dada’ — when she was 1, she used to do that to the screen,” he shares.

Matt Bomer: I Want My Kids to Have a ‘Normal Childhood’

10/12/2015 at 01:00 PM ET

Whatever you do, don’t call Matt Bomer a stage dad.

While he and husband Simon Halls do everything they can to enrich the lives of their three children, the couple are content to keep their kids out of the spotlight.

“I don’t want anybody out on stage any time soon,” the American Horror Story: Hotel star told PEOPLE while attending The Hammer Museum‘s 13th Annual Gala in the Garden Saturday. “I want them to have a nice, normal childhood.”

In fact, the father of Kit, 10, and 7-year-old twins Henry and Walker, is hoping his children’s upbringing mirrors his own.

“When I was 8 years old, I asked my parents to get me head shots, and they were like, ‘What are you talking about?! Go outside and play!’ I’m so glad they did,” the 38-year-old actor says.

“I had a normal childhood where I was able to cultivate my own creativity, and I don’t think I would have been ready for this crazy business at 8 years old.”
