Inside Jessie James Decker’s Nursery: ‘I Always Wanted a Sports Theme’

07/29/2015 at 08:00 AM ET

With her second child — a son! — due in September, Jessie James Decker has finally put the finishing touches on her baby boy’s nursery.

And the soon-to-be mom of two has scored a major touchdown with the vintage sleep space, designed by Decker with the help of Joss & Main‘s style director.

“I knew I always wanted a sports-theme room. As soon as I got pregnant with him and knew it was a boy, I just felt like it fit his personality!” Decker, 27, tells PEOPLE.

“I think when people do the animal themes they are cute and all, but it just didn’t feel like this little guy. He feels like a cool sports dude already.”

Maya Thurman-Hawke, Uma Thurman‘s 16-year-old daughter, shocked at her 2015 CFDA Awards red carpet debut, wearing a gorgeous Zac Posen dress, minimal makeup, and looking exactly like her mother.

“Well, she never left the room at the hospital, so they didn’t switch her!” Thurman, 45, tells PEOPLE.

“I’m madly in love with all of my children and very proud of them,” the actress, who is also mom to 13-year-old son Levon Roan and 3-year-old daughter Luna, says. “I think they conduct themselves with a lot of dignity and respect for others. It’s all a parent could dream of.”

Jenn Brown Debuts Body After Baby: The Last 15 Lbs. Were ‘Frustrating’

07/21/2015 at 03:55 PM ET

Television host Jenn Brown and husband Wes Chatham happily welcomed baby boy John Nash into their lives last November.

While being a mommy has been “the best thing in the world” for Brown, getting back into shape proved to be a bit of a struggle.

“I had an extra 15 lbs. or so that no matter what I was eating — [and] I was working out — I just couldn’t get it off,” she tells PEOPLE. “That for me was frustrating.”

Despite friends telling her nursing would help melt the extra weight off, it just wasn’t happening. After Brown stopped breastfeeding, she turned to USANA Reset, a weight-management program that replaces meals with nutritional shakes and bars.

Evelyn Lozada: Why I Felt ‘Responsible’ for My Miscarriage

07/20/2015 at 03:00 PM ET

Showing up to an OB/GYN appointment to find out your pregnancy has taken a turn for the worse is every expectant mother’s nightmare. In Evelyn Lozada‘s case, that nightmare came true.

On Saturday night’s episode of Livin’ Lozada, the former Basketball Wives star’s new reality show on OWN, it’s revealed that Lozada’s pregnancy earlier this year ended in miscarriage.

“When I went to my first appointment, everything looked great,” Lozada, 39, tells PEOPLE exclusively. “My progesterone levels were good.”

Lozada and her fiancé, L.A. Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford, are already parents to 15-month-old son Carl Leo, and although the pregnancy came as a surprise to the couple, Lozada says she was naturally excited.

07/18/2015 at 09:00 AM ET

After hitting it off on their first date last December, Jennie Garth didn’t drag her heels before introducing new beau, actor Dave Abrams, to her three daughters — Luca, 18, Lola, 12, and Fiona, 8.

“It was a big decision on my part, but I said, ‘I really like this guy and he really likes me and if we think we have a future together, I need to introduce him to my life as soon as possible,’ ” the actress, 43, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

She adds, “I threw him in 100 percent and he fit in without missing a beat.”

“I’ve always wanted kids,” says the Virginia-raised Abrams, 34, who worked hard to ease his way into a blended family and embraced the prospect of being a stepdad.

Newlyweds Josh Elliott and Liz Cho: ‘We’re Believers in the Modern Family’

07/17/2015 at 11:15 AM ET

Josh Elliott and Liz Cho have a new lease on love.

The couple’s intimate garden wedding in Montecito, California, on Saturday marked a second trip down the aisle for the journalists.

“Being that it’s the second marriage for both of us,” says the NBC Sports anchor, 44, who met Cho, 44, anchor of ABC News’ New York City affiliate, when they worked at ABC together. “It’s really a time to take stock in what matters most.”

And what matters most to them is, unequivocally, family. Elliott’s daughter Sarina, 6, and Cho’s daughter Louisa, 8, both from their previous marriages, served as maids of honor and played a special role in the couple’s ceremony.

In honor of Elliott’s mom, who died just three weeks before their wedding, “the girls carried flowers and placed them on an empty chair,” says Elliott. “Those were the tears. I loved seeing our two girls walk down the aisle.”

Jaime King: How We’re Choosing Our Second Child’s Name

07/16/2015 at 12:00 PM ET

Jaime King knows that it isn’t always easy finding the perfect fit when dressing for two.

“It’s very interesting. There’s not a lot of brands out there that have maternity clothes that make you still feel modern, sexy, beautiful, elegant — and the way that you want to feel — and also, really comfortable at the same time when you’re pregnant,” King, who announced her second pregnancy in February, tells PEOPLE.

But the expectant mama says that ever since she “became a pregnant lady with [her] first child,” son James Knight, she’s been a huge fan of one particular maternity apparel retailer: A Pea in the Pod. And now the mom-to-be is their official new brand ambassador.

“I really appreciated that they had some really wonderful brand collaborations [and] that the clothing themselves were something that I actually wanted to wear and that I felt good in,” King, who has linked up with the retailer for their fall 2015 campaign and new denim line, Luxe Essentials Denim, says.
