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.

The proud parents-to-be were all smiles as they made their way down the carpet. But the actor, 37, only had eyes for his leading lady — and once we saw the mom-to-be’s fitted, floor-length frock we knew why.

Lively, 27, showed off her growing bump in a beautiful butter-hued gown from Gucci’s Resort 2015 collection, complete with a plunging embellished neckline.

And while the Preserve founder accessorized with Lorraine Schwartz jewels, it was her gorgeous glow that really took her evening look to another level.

It’s the magical moment most parents secretly wish will end in a win for them — baby’s first word!

But then it happened: first-time father Jimmy Fallon‘s daughter Winnie Rose gave those coveted bragging rights to mom Nancy Juvonen Fallon.

Now the Tonight Show host is doing his part to ensure his fellow fathers don’t miss out on the milestone by publishing his second children’s book, Your Baby’s First Word Will Be Dada.

“This is one of the few celebrity books that you can tell was actually written by a celebrity,” Fallon, 40, jokes.

The sweet picture book — available June 9 — serves as a hilarious how-to on coaching your kiddie to show Dad some love, with cows, sheep, horses and mice prompting their pint-sized mini-me‘s to say, “Dada.”

10/19/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

Her mama would be oh-so proud: Kourtney Kardashian is jumping on Kris Jenner‘s bandwagon.

Taking a page straight out of the family matriarch’s style book, the mom-to-be raided her youngest sister Kylie‘s closet — and struck gold.

Kardashian, 35 — who’s expecting her third child with Scott Disick in December — stepped out on Thursday sporting her treasured find: an embroidered tribal tunic.

And before Kylie could catch wind of her sister’s stylish steal, the expectant reality star took to Instagram to confess her fashionable feat.

“Shout out to my fashionista sister @kyliejenner for letting me borrow your dress AKA I stole it and you had no idea but for not freaking out when you see me wearing it,” she wrote.

J.P. and Ashley Hebert Rosenbaum: How We’re Tackling Breastfeeding As a Team

10/17/2014 at 01:00 PM ET

J.P. and Ashley Hebert Rosenbaum‘s love story just keeps getting sweeter.

After paying tribute to their whirlwind romance with a travel-themed baby shower in July, the parents-to-be turned to planning a nursery for their baby boy — and it was obvious which direction they were heading.

“Ashley and J.P. have many memories of traveling together, so the nursery features a subtle travel theme,” designer Vanessa Antonelli, who worked with the couple on the room, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

Using a paneled wall as the focal point, the couple created a sophisticated sleep space featuring wall clocks representing the places they’ve visited together, chic accessories that play into the theme, including sailboats and maps, and a neutral color palette that can easily grow with their child.

“Ashley knew exactly what she wanted and worked with me to choose the pieces that went into the room,” says Antonelli. “But even more surprising was that she is a little contractor! Ashley actually put up most of that Stikwood wall all by herself.”

And just as she took to carpentry, Hebert Rosenbaum is already excelling at motherhood since the Sept. 30 arrival of son Fordham Rhys.

“Ashley has taken to motherhood like she has been doing it all her life. It always makes me smile to see how she handles Ford,” Rosenbaum says.
