Milla Jovovich‘s daughter got her wish: She’s getting a baby sister!

“We’re actually having a girl so she’s so excited,” the actress, 38, told PEOPLE Wednesday at amFAR’s Fifth Annual Inspiration Gala in Los Angeles.

The news that Jovovich’s second child with Paul W.S. Anderson will be another daughter came as a big relief to the mom-to-be, who admits she was unsure the couple’s firstborn, Ever Gabo, would take well to having a brother.

“I was actually worried if we had a boy, what would happen to him,” she says with a laugh. “I was like, ‘I wonder how long he will survive in our house with that little girl pushing him and sticking her foot out and tripping him!'”

Now mom to 3-month-old daughter Myllena Mae and 3½-year-old son Phyllon Joy, model Doutzen Kroes didn’t know how she was going to handle double duty at first.

“It’s crazy. In the beginning when [Myllena] was just born I was like, ‘How am I going to do this?'” Kroes told reporters Oct. 20 at the 2014 Elle Women in Hollywood Awards in Beverly Hills.

But now the mom-of-two has finally found her rhythm and is learning to perfect the balance of her two babies.

“It was really shocking, but now after three months I’m getting into it,” she admits. “I’m okay doing it by myself too when my husband [Dutch deejay and producer Sunnery James] is traveling — so I’ve been practicing and it’s amazing. It’s the best feeling in the world.”

How does Kroes juggle the demands of a newborn and toddler by herself?

Lisa Ling is known for being a courageous journalist — and not surprisingly daughter Jett has the same strong spirit.

“She’s incredibly independent,” Ling told reporters Tuesday at the International Women’s Media Foundation‘s 25th Anniversary Courage in Journalism Awards in Beverly Hills, California. “She insists on picking out all her own clothes at [19-months-old].”

However, Ling says, her baby girl is just following in the footsteps of the females in her family.

“Her mother, both of her grandmothers, all of her aunts are fiercely independent women, so I shouldn’t have expected anything else,” she says. “I just didn’t think it would happen at one.”

It’s obvious that Olivia Wilde is, well, wild about being a mom.

“The amazing thing about becoming a parent is that you will never again be your own first priority,” the actress told reporters Tuesday at the International Women’s Media Foundation‘s 25th Anniversary Courage in Journalism Awards.

“The gift of motherhood is the selflessness that it introduces you to, and I think that’s really freeing.”

Wilde — who co-hosted the event in Beverly Hills, California — and fiancé Jason Sudeikis welcomed son Otis Alexander in April.

The busy 30-year-old actress says everything about life with her baby boy has been “amazing” since his arrival.

Shakira Teams Up with Fisher-Price for Cute Toy Collection

10/29/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

Just in time for the holidays, Shakira has partnered with Fisher-Price for a new line of developmental toys.

And we’ve already added the adorable playthings to our kids’ holiday wish lists.

The pop star, 37, worked with the kiddie company to design six cute and colorful toys — which, of course, include a soft soccer ball that plays music — as part of her First Steps collections.

“When it comes to baby’s development, the early years are the most important,” Shakira says. “Each play experience is an opportunity for baby to learn about the world around them.”

The mom-to-be will have plenty of little hands to test out the new products. Shakira, who is already mom to 21-month-old son Milan, and her soccer star boyfriend Gerard Piqué are expecting their second child together.
