Carrie Underwood is blown away: She’s a mom!

The country singer welcomed her first child, a son, with husband Mike Fisher on Friday, Feb. 27, Underwood announced Tuesday on Facebook.

“Tiny hands and tiny feet … God has blessed us with an amazing gift! Isaiah Michael Fisher — born February 27,” the first-time mom captioned a sneak peek of her newborn.

Underwood, 31, used the family’s furry members — and pink and blue T-shirts — to announce her pregnancy in September.

“In honor of ‘Labor’ Day, Ace & Penny would like to make an announcement. Their parents couldn’t be happier,” the mom-to-be, who debuted her baby belly days later, captioned the photo.

But it was fellow country star Brad Paisley who spilled the beans on the sex of her baby on the way. “We could name him Garth,” he joked at the CMAs in November.

Michelle Williams on Being a Single Mom in Show Business: I’m Exhausted!

03/03/2015 at 04:00 PM ET

Oscar-nominated actress and full-time mother Michelle Williams has it all … besides a good night’s sleep.

“I feel like I’m so good at raising a kid when I’m not working. I don’t forget anything. I’ve got everything covered,” she says in the April issue of ELLE UK, on stands March 5.

“It’s a real luxury to have a moment when I’m not scrambling. I feel like most of my life, I’m trying to do two things at once, both to the best of my abilities. So that leaves me feeling pretty exhausted.”

The star — who is raising 9-year-old Matilda Rose, her daughter with the late Heath Ledger — has even gained a reputation among her friends for being tired.

“I’m the person who falls asleep all the time,” she tells the magazine. “You invite me over for dinner or to a party, and there’s a whole scrapbook of pictures of me napping. I’ve even been given a nickname because of my snoring.”

When in need of some life advice, there’s one gal pal that Jennifer Garner can always be sure to rely on: Reese Witherspoon.

“If I run into Reese, she and I have so much to talk about,” Garner, 42, told PEOPLE at the press day for her new film Danny Collins, in which she stars alongside Al Pacino. “We’ll be on the street corner and just be like, ‘What do you do about this, and how did you handle this?’ ”

She continues, “I’m so grateful for that very specific kind of friend.”

A typical juicy conversation that takes place between the two hard-working Hollywood mothers may specifically consist of whether or not a role is worth (temporarily) departing from motherhood.

“I have such a big thing to balance [jobs] against that it has to be something I love so much,” Garner says of feeling “surprised,” but grateful every time that she gets handed a new offer and has to think about calling in the in-laws for some long-term babysitting.

Ryan Reynolds visited The Tonight Show Monday night, and as new parents often do, talked about his newborn baby. (Of course, because it’s a conversation with Jimmy Fallon, you have to get through a few musical impressions, including Michael McDonald, first.)

Our baby, in particular, is, we think, allergic to sleep,” Reynolds said while talking about his 9-week-old daughter with wife Blake Lively.

“We think that she thinks she’s protecting us from the sleep monsters,” Reynolds continues. “Like, ‘Oh, I have to keep them up or the sleep monsters will get them.’ ”

But in between all those sleepless nights the proud parents have endured, the first-time father came up with a solution. Unfortunately, he adds, his plan has yet to work on his baby girl.

Tamera Mowry-Housley: Why I Didn’t Have to Tell Tia I Was Pregnant

03/02/2015 at 06:45 PM ET

Tamera Mowry-Housley may have been the first to get pregnant with her second child, but it was Tia Mowry-Hardict who beat her to the big reveal.

“We have this thing where we wait until eight weeks because we want to make sure everything is okay,” Mowry-Housley, 36, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

“But my sister gets it because we’re twins. She just called me and she was like, ‘Are you pregnant?’ And I said, ‘Yep, I am!’ ”

Breaking the news to her husband Adam Housley however, was much more of a surprise. The mom-to-be hid her positive pregnancy stick in her purse and let the senior news correspondent at Fox News discover the happy news on his own.

“I surprised him at work and then I gave my purse to Adam and I was like, ‘Adam, I can’t find my keys. I’m having a really hard time … Did I put them in my purse?’ ” she recalls. “Then he was looking through my purse and saw the pregnancy test.”

She adds, “Adam is always shocked and excited all at the same time. It’s quite a sight to see!”
