Brooklyn Decker may not have baby fever, but she at least has baby low-grade temperature.

“It is great getting to be Aunt Brooklyn and play with my friends’ kids,” Decker, 26, tells PEOPLE.

And spending time on the kid-friendly set of her CBS sitcom, Friends with Better Lives, with her costars Majandra Delfino and James Van Der Beek‘s kids has fueled Decker’s love of children even more.

“Majandra [was expecting her son Louis] when we started filming. She would have her daughter Cecilia with her,” says Decker.

But Decker knows having a bundle of joy would also mean less alone time with her retired tennis pro husband Andy Roddick, whom she wed in 2009.

The sibling love was at a standstill in Mark-Paul Gosselaar‘s home — until his two kids were saved by … the baby.

Despite a rocky relationship with each other, the actor’s children, Michael Charles, 10, and Ava Lorenn, 7½, have happily embraced their roles as big brother and sister to 6-month-old Dekker Edward.

“They still hate each other, but they love the baby, so all the love now goes to Dekker,” Gosselaar, 40, joked to PEOPLE at the Safe Kids Day event on Saturday in West Hollywood, Calif.

Balancing a new baby and busy schedules with work can get hectic, so during the week Gosselaar’s goal is often “just having dinner … as a unit.” But all bets are off on the weekends when the family — which includes Gosselaar’s wife Catriona — gets together for some fun.

Why Dierks Bentley Will ‘Absolutely Not’ Have More Kids

04/03/2014 at 11:00 PM ET

Dierks Bentley may be one of country music’s hottest stars (he just scored his 11th No. 1 song with “I Hold On”), but the new dad’s role is reversed when he’s at home.

According to Bentley, he’s the fan and it’s his kids — daughters Evie, 5, and Jordan, 3, and son Knox, 5 months — that are the real superstars.

“Me and [my wife] Cassidy will sit on the floor while the girls put on a performance, usually to the Frozen soundtrack, and it’s unbelievable,” he tells PEOPLE Country.

“Evie knows every word. Knox is there in my lap laughing like crazy — he thinks his sisters are the funniest people in the entire world.”

He produces and hosts The Voice, is a social media guru for the Today show and hosts his own morning radio show, but the most important job in Carson Daly‘s life is being a fantastic father.

“My family’s the most important thing,” Daly, who’s expecting his third child with fiancée Siri Pinter in August, told PEOPLE Thursday at a private concert with The Voice judges at The Sayers Club.

“I’ll be happy to get up and go get some pickles at 3 in the morning if I have to do an interview on the Today show at 5 in the morning,” Daly, dad to daughter Etta Jones, 19 months, and son Jackson James, 5, said.

Connie Britton might have a real cowboy Casanova on her hands!

The Nashville star was recently named a Goodwill Ambassador for poverty eradication and women’s empowerment by the United Nations, and has no fears that her 3-year-old son will help her pave the way.

“Oh my gosh, he’s surrounded by loudmouthed women all the time. He’s always learning about women,” Britton jokes to PEOPLE of teaching her son Yoby about female empowerment.

“I am actually really proud, I think he’s going to grow up with a real strong sense of how to treat women because he’s around them so much — especially powerful, strong women.”
