With a new baby and a new husband, it was a busy winter for Jennifer Love Hewitt. But the mom of now 4-month-old Autumn James couldn’t be happier about her new roles.

“Those first couple of nights, it was wild,” the actress, 35, told PEOPLE at the launch of her maternity line for A Pea in the Pod on Tuesday in Beverly Hills.

“When they let us bring her home I said to [husband, actor Brian Hallisay], ‘To get your license you have to take a test. They check to make sure you’re a good human being to get behind the wheel of a car. They’ve given us no test! We just had a baby and now we’re going home.’ He was like, ‘I know, it’s terrifying!’”

Thankfully, Dad is up for the challenge. “He’s fantastic. He’s great at diaper changing and at the football hold, which she loves,” says Hewitt.

Goodbye, healthy habits. Hello, truffle popcorn!

All throughout her pregnancy, Kendra Wilkinson has made eating clean a priority for both her and her family, but the mom-to-be — who’s expecting a girl in mid May — is temporarily calling it quits.

“I’m 33 weeks right now. I’m at the point where I give up. I threw in the towel,” she told PEOPLE while snacking at the launch of Jennifer Love Hewitt‘s L collection for A Pea in the Pod on Tuesday in Beverly Hills.

But while there are some areas the Kendra on Top star is willing to ease up on during her pregnancy, prepping her son Hank IV for the arrival of his baby sister isn’t one of them.

“He is still my baby. That’s the one thing we keep telling him, ‘No matter what, you’re still our baby.’ We’re going to always treat him that way and empower him,” she explains.

Five months after giving birth to Maceo-Robert, Halle Berry is back to work filming her new CBS television show Extant, premiering July 9.

The actress says one of the main reasons she decided to take on a TV role is so she can be closer to her 5-month-old son with husband Olivier Martinez and her 6-year-old daughter, Nahla Ariela.

“I no longer can afford to have the gypsy life,” she tells PEOPLE. “This [show] allows me to stay home and still do something really creative and cool that I love.”

The actress, 47, is also busy promoting her film Frankie & Alice and says thinking of the other working moms out there helps her get through the long days.

She’s had an Office job, gotten married and is expecting her second child, but occasionally Jenna Fischer just has to take a step back to let it all soak in.

“Sometimes I can’t believe that I live in a house I pay a mortgage for — it’s all so very adult,” the actress(here in a printed Ingrid & Isabel navy maxi dress) told PEOPLE at the launch of Jennifer Love Hewitt‘s L collection for A Pea in the Pod on Tuesday in Beverly Hills.

“Now we’re going to be responsible for two people. It’s a little daunting.”

As she is “getting close” to delivering, Fischer — who is keeping baby’s sex a secret — has taken a sweet approach to preparing son Weston Lee for the upcoming addition.

As full-time working parents, Giuliana and Bill Rancic have their hands full juggling hosting gigs, speaking engagements and filming for their reality show, Giuliana & Bill.

But one little man in their lives gets first priority: son Edward Duke, 19 months.

“We are busier than ever,” Giuliana, 39, tells PEOPLE. “But it makes it easier to love what I do. I don’t see it as a job. If I had to leave him every day and go somewhere I wasn’t happy, I’d probably be a stay-at-home mom.”

She adds, “We’re just trying to figure out what the next couple of years looks like and make sure Duke has everything he could possibly need.”
