With Baby Safety Month in full swing, Ali Landry is doing everything in her power to get the word out.

After hearing a tragic story about a little girl who lost her life in a car accident, Landry had an awakening.

“That child was the same age as my daughter. And I just thought to myself, ‘I know nothing really about carseat safety,’ ” Landry, 42, tells PEOPLE.

“Every friend of mine, I think we’re all in the same position: You assume you know. It’s just one of those things that clicked within me, like I have to do something about it. There’s no way after hearing this that I can just be silent.”

In an effort to promote awareness and honor National Seat Check Day, the mom of three will be hosting the 4th Annual Red Carpet Safety Event, a family-friendly charity event sponsored by Diono and benefitting Safe Kids California, on Sept. 19.

Ali Landry Welcomes Son Valentin Francesco Landov

Ali Landry‘s littlest guy is here!

The former model and actress, 39, and her husband, director Alejandro Monteverde welcomed their third child — and second son — on Thursday, July 11, PEOPLE confirms.

Valentin Francesco Monteverde was born in Los Angeles and weighed in at 9 lbs. The newborn shares a birthday with big sister Estela Ines, who turned 6.

After announcing she was pregnant with a baby boy in March, Landry told PEOPLE in June that her newest son’s middle name was inspired by a meeting with the Pope she and her husband had earlier this year during a trip to Rome.

“We got to meet the Pope and he blessed this baby. So part of the name might have something to do with our new Pope,” she says. “The other part of the name we came up with on our own.”

Ali Landry‘s baby bump was barely noticeable when PEOPLE caught up with the nearly-due TV personality in late June — but as she explains, she owes much of her slim and trim figure to her newly discovered exercise regimen.

“At this point, when you’re three weeks away and so uncomfortable, the last thing you want to do is put on spandex and go to a gym,” Landry, who is expecting her second son any day now, says.

“I just recently switched to water workouts. I don’t feel like I’m pregnant in the water.”

The best result of the tri-weekly workout that she calls “insane” is it has smoothed out her cellulite — something the brunette beauty admits affects her lower bottom area.

Ali Landry: You Won’t Catch Me on a Cover After Baby

She’s appeared in her fair share of magazines, but former model Ali Landry won’t be caught on their covers showing off her postpartum body after baby arrives.

“It’s frustrating for me when I see moms in Hollywood on a magazine three months after having a baby in a swimsuit. It’s really just not realistic for most moms,” Landry, 39, says in The Bump‘s August issue.

“For me, personally, it takes nine months to put on that weight and it really takes nine months to take it off.”

But while the mom-to-be — she’s due with a baby boy in July — isn’t in a rush to regain her famous figure, Landry is still making an effort to maintain her sense of style with her maternity fashions.

However, the commitment isn’t always so easy — especially when sweats are staring her in the face.
