Baby Girl on the Way for Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan

07/31/2015 at 02:10 PM ET

Facebook’s newest user is on her way.

Mark Zuckerberg took to his social media platform on Friday to announce that he and wife Priscilla Chan, who married in 2012, are expecting a girl.

“This will be a new chapter in our lives,” he wrote. “We’ve already been so fortunate for the opportunity to touch people’s lives around the world — Cilla as a doctor and educator, and me through this community and philanthropy. Now we’ll focus on making the world a better place for our child and the next generation.”

The 31-year-old mogul also opened up about the couple’s struggles to conceive.

“We’ve been trying to have a child for a couple of years and have had three miscarriages along the way.

“You feel so hopeful when you learn you’re going to have a child. You start imagining who they’ll become and dreaming of hopes for their future. You start making plans, and then they’re gone. It’s a lonely experience. Most people don’t discuss miscarriages because you worry your problems will distance you or reflect upon you — as if you’re defective or did something to cause this. So you struggle on your own.

The couple announced they were expecting a baby together in December — and told PEOPLE exclusively in February that it was a girl! But despite already being mom to 6½-year-old son Bronx Mowgli, Simpson admitted everything felt like a whole new experience.

Salma Hayek Turns Premiere into Mom-Daughter ‘Date Night’ with Valentina

07/30/2015 at 10:55 AM ET

It was ladies’ night out for Salma Hayek.

On Wednesday, the actress brought her daughter Valentina Paloma, 7½, as her date to the Los Angeles premiere of the animated film Khalil Gibran’s The Prophet, which Hayek produced.

“It’s actually a grandmother-mother-daughter date night,” Hayek, 48, told PEOPLE before the screening, which took place at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. “My mom is also here. This film is for everybody.”

Clad in a Balenciaga dress and Gucci shoes, Hayek — who lends her voice as one of the characters in the film — not only allowed Valentina to attend the screening but also introduced her to some of her favorites on the red carpet.

“She’s excited to see [the movie] again and show it to her friends, but she’s also excited because we have a lot of people from the Disney Channel here,” jokes Hayek.

We Tried It: Burley’s Solstice Jogging Stroller

07/29/2015 at 02:00 PM ET

We tried it: Burley Solstice Stroller

Who tried it: Anya Leon, Babies Editor

Why she did it: Trying to go for a brisk morning walk with a toddler in tow can be painstakingly slow without the right stroller.

Pros: Before the Burley Solstice came into my life, I had no one to make me accountable for morning walks. You know, that exercise buddy who motivates you to go the extra mile? But once I put the stroller together, I suddenly had no excuse to write a rain check: I had found my new workout partner.

Setting up the stroller was quick and easy: Just pop the tires in place until you hear a click. (The tires come off just as easily with a push of a button.)

Inside Jessie James Decker’s Nursery: ‘I Always Wanted a Sports Theme’

07/29/2015 at 08:00 AM ET

With her second child — a son! — due in September, Jessie James Decker has finally put the finishing touches on her baby boy’s nursery.

And the soon-to-be mom of two has scored a major touchdown with the vintage sleep space, designed by Decker with the help of Joss & Main‘s style director.

“I knew I always wanted a sports-theme room. As soon as I got pregnant with him and knew it was a boy, I just felt like it fit his personality!” Decker, 27, tells PEOPLE.

“I think when people do the animal themes, they are cute and all, but it just didn’t feel like this little guy. He feels like a cool sports dude already.”
