Mario Lopez: Gia’s ‘Very Busy with a Full Schedule’

05/31/2013 at 10:00 AM ET

As the host of Extra and The X Factor, Mario Lopez knows a thing or two about having a full plate, but that’s nothing compared to 2-year-old daughter Gia Francesca.

“She’s very busy with a full schedule,” Lopez jokes to PEOPLE, noting his daughter’s currently enrolled in dancing and gymnastics classes. “She’s a funny kid. Great personality, very social, lot of energy. She’s a blast to be around and I love that she’s so warm with people.”

Gia’s personality should make the transition to big sister an easy one when Lopez and wife Courtney welcome their second child later this year.

“She’s pointing at the belly and saying, ‘There’s a baby in there,’” Lopez says. “She wants to know if it’s a boy or a girl, but we don’t know because we’re waiting to find out. That’s kind of tough sometimes, we just don’t know!”

As a lover of the outdoors and athletics, staying in shape is an important part of dad Ryan Sutter’s life, and also why he’s partnered with ACE Brand to help everyday people recognize what it means to be a champion.

But pursuing such a lifestyle, including training for events like the Leadville Trail 100 mountain bike race and the Gore-Tex TransRockies Run, has also provided him with an opportunity to positively influence his children, 5-year-old son Maxwell and 3-year-old daughter Blakesley, on the importance of staying active.

“They probably started when they were about a year old, as far as being active,” Sutter tells PEOPLE. “[My wife Trista and I] don’t force them to do anything, we just try to expose them to a lot of different sports and activities.”

New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck has found a new talent: Author!

“Reading is very important to any success,” Tuck, 29, told PEOPLE during a Family Storyteller event at N.Y.C.’s Housing Works Bookstore Café on May 5.

The Super Bowl champ and dad read from his children’s book, Home-Field Advantage, which is inspired by Tuck’s own childhood adventures (including being pushed around by his five older sisters), to show that toughness comes in all forms.

Even the cover image was based on snapshots of Tuck running through the yard as a kid. The young boy also bears a resemblance to Tuck’s 2-year-old son, Jayce, whom the NFL star describes as “the most fearless little kid I’ve ever been around.”
