As the birth of her first child grows near, Carrie Underwood is doing her homework on how to balance motherhood with superstardom.

And one of her greatest teachers so far has been friend Hillary Scott, who’s happy to share advice on touring with babies on board.

“Carrie and I are really good friends and it was an honest, expectant [and] new mom conversation,” the Lady Antebellum singer, 28, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

Adds the mom to 18-month-old daughter Eisele Kaye, “It’s a weird transition at first — you feel like you have to split your brain because you’re in such a mommy mode and then you’ve got to work at such an intense job too.”

Rule number one? Resist the temptation to tiptoe around the new baby.

When Christina Aguilera gave birth to her daughter last August, “Sophia” and “Emma” topped the list of most popular American girl’s names.

But rarely one to follow a crowd, the Grammy-winning since took another tack, calling her little girl Summer Rain.

So what’s in a name?

For Aguilera, 34, a whole lot. “Summer is a time of spreading warmth and light, while rain washes away … replenishes and brings new life to allow growth and new beginnings,” she tells PEOPLE in this week’s exclusive cover story.

The Voice coach and her fiancé, film producer Matt Rutler, say the moniker captures their 6-month-old daughter’s spirit.

If Neil Patrick Harris hosts the Oscars as well as he does imitations of his twins, everyone is in for a major treat on Feb. 22.

On Thursday’s episode of Inside the Actors Studio, Harris channels son Gideon Scott and daughter Harper Grace – and PEOPLE has an exclusive sneak peek at the footage.

After the actor and husband David Burtka discuss what Burtka calls their “absolutely magical” September wedding, host James Lipton asks the couple what their 4-year-olds are like.

“They’re pretty quintessential boy and girl,” answers Harris. “Harper is a girl, girl, girl, girl.”

“She wears mermaid outfits and has falls in her hair and you have to announce her when she comes down the staircase,” he explains before jumping into character as his daughter. “And then when you do, she slowly comes down the stairs acting all, like, ‘Oh, me?’ ”

And Harris, 41, says Gideon is “all boy.”

“He loves trucks and construction and he likes superheroes,” the former How I Met Your Mother star adds before impersonating his son. “When he gets mad he puts his fists together and just shakes.”

Christina Aguilera is rarely at a loss for words. But in the moments after her daughter Summer Rain was born on Aug. 16, 2014, she was all but spellbound.

“I was speechless,” the singer, 34, tells PEOPLE in an exclusive interview for this week’s cover. “She was literally like an angel … We had an immediate calm bond, and I felt unexplainably connected to her and her spirit.”

Since then, she and her fiancé, film producer Matt Rutler, who was by her side for the delivery, have only become more smitten with their little girl, now 6 months old.

“Her smile lights up a room and I know it melts mama and daddy’s hearts,” says Aguilera. “She laughs a ton and is easy to make smile. She just wants to be where the action is!”

Sophie B. Hawkins will be welcoming a new addition to her family this July.

The singer — who is already mom to a 6-year-old son, Dashiell — is pregnant with a baby girl after being implanted with her own frozen embryo (sperm was provided by a donor).

“I found Dashiell really needs a sibling,” Hawkins tells PEOPLE of her decision to have another child. “My son has one parent who’s 50. I want him to have a family of young people too!”

Before becoming pregnant, Hawkins faced fears because of her age and the fact that she is newly single.

“I went through waking up crying and saying, ‘Am I too old? Will I suddenly at 51 have my knees give out?'” she admits. “Now I don’t have any of those fears because I feel healthy and strong. I’m also setting up a good net of support, and that’s the key to anybody having a child.”

Hawkins says her age was not a concern for doctors because she had frozen embryos at the age of 31, was in good physical health and had a healthy first child.
