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.

Pregnant Ashlee Simpson Jokes She Is ‘Just Hungry All the Time’

02/06/2015 at 05:00 PM ET

A pregnancy’s the perfect time to spoil yourself here and there — just ask Ashlee Simpson.

“I’m just hungry all the time!” the actress and singer, 30, told PEOPLE Thursday at the Crayola Color Alive launch event in New York. “It’s the best time to enjoy your cravings.”

Simpson, who also revealed to PEOPLE exclusively that she and husband Evan Ross are expecting a girl, says it’s so far, so good this pregnancy.

“I feel great. I, luckily, haven’t been sick. It’s been pretty laid-back,” she says, noting her pregnancy with now 6-year-old son Bronx Mowgli went off without a hitch, too. “Nothing’s been hard about it — I feel wonderful!”

Wes Cage: ‘I Was Digging My Grave’ with Substance Abuse – Until My Baby Saved Me

02/06/2015 at 04:00 PM ET

Since welcoming son Lucian Augustus with wife Danielle last year, Wes Cage has been soaking up every moment with his new family.

It’s a stark contrast from the dramatic headlines that used to follow Nicolas Cage‘s elder son — a bloody fight with his former trainer, a messy split from ex Nikki Williams — and one that he welcomes wholeheartedly after a tough battle with substance abuse.

“It got to the point where people thought I was digging my grave,” he tells PEOPLE exclusively about his journey to sobriety. “Lucian’s saved both of our lives, and we are very blessed to have him. It’s just a very joyous time right now.”

Drinking multiple cases of beer, a box of wine, hard liquor and taking pills throughout a single day at his lowest point, Cage, 24, quit alcohol cold turkey after landing in the hospital in 2012 after suffering from a severe withdrawal.

Evan Ross and Ashlee Simpson have some exciting news.

“We’re having a girl!” Simpson, 30, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

The mom-to-be — who PEOPLE confirmed in December was pregnant with her second child — was anxious to find out the sex of their little one on the way. “I like to know — I want to do the nursery,” she says.

According to the singer and actress, they found out that they were expecting this past Thanksgiving, which she calls “a cute, fun day.”

The happy couple tied the knot in a bohemian-style ceremony in August, then took off for a sun-soaked honeymoon in Bali.

The baby girl will be Simpson’s first child with actor-musician Ross, 26. Simpson is already mom to son Bronx Mowgli, 6, with ex-husband Pete Wentz.

Wes Chatham and Jenn Brown Introduce Son John Nash

02/02/2015 at 06:30 PM ET

Meet John Nash Chatham!

After welcoming their first child on Nov. 24, actor Wes Chatham and television host Jenn Brown are introducing their son in a series of sweet family photos.

Although the couple are in complete baby bliss, parenthood began with a bumpy start after the NFL Network and American Ninja Warrior host, 33, went into labor five and a half weeks weeks ahead of her New Year’s Eve due date — with Chatham, 36, stuck in Canada.

“Unfortunately, Wes was on an airplane when Nash was born,” Brown, who wore her Posh Mommy necklace during the shoot, tells PEOPLE exclusively. “We really hoped he was going to make it, but, again, Nash had other plans.”

Now 10 weeks into life with their baby boy, the new parents opened up to PEOPLE about everything from the early delivery and breastfeeding to late night feedings and their son’s name.
