Why David and Victoria Beckham ‘Limit’ Screen Time

07/18/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

David Beckham learned discipline on the soccer field — and the father-of-four makes sure to bring that lesson home to his kids.

The soccer star, 39, shared that his three sonsBrooklyn, 15, Romeo, 11, and Cruz, 9 — do play sports-themed video games, but he and wife Victoria are strict about their screen time.

“We put a time limit on it. You have to,” Beckham told PEOPLE Thursday at the inaugural Kids’ Choice Sports Awards in Los Angeles, where he received the Legend Award. “No more than an hour. I know that sounds pretty harsh, but I want my boys to be outside playing.”

Why Scott Wolf ‘Took a Knee’ After Learning His Third Child Was on the Way

For Scott Wolf and his wife, Kelley, making their family an actual party of five by adding a third child was just a matter of time.

Up until the May arrival of daughter Lucy Marie, the couple’s family planning had been successful — despite an unexpected age gap between sons Jackson Kayse, 5, and Miller William, 20 months.

“We knew that we wanted to start and that’s when we had our first,” the actor, 46, told PEOPLE while attending the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey LEGENDS event Thursday evening in Los Angeles.

“But the second one took longer than we thought it might, so that 3½-year split was a little bit more than we originally set out [for].”

So the Perception star admits to being more than a little stunned when his wife opened up a very specific dialogue one morning.

It’s a golden girl for Kerri Strug!

The two-time Olympic medalist and husband Robert Fischer welcomed their second child, daughter Alayna Madaleine, on Thursday, June 26, the former gymnast tells PEOPLE.

Born at 8:08 a.m., Alayna weighed in at 7 lbs., 11 oz and measured 19.25 inches long. She joins big brother Tyler William, 2, at home.

“Robert and I are so proud of our family. We were so excited to give Tyler a sibling a couple of weeks ago, especially a baby sister,” says Strug.

“Alayna is beautiful and doing well.  She is a good baby with a healthy appetite. We know she is going to follow in her big brother’s footsteps and be independent, funny and extremely active before we know it!”

Strug — who rose to fame at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, when she courageously stuck her vault landing with a third-degree lateral sprain — and her husband, an attorney, were married in April 2010.

We Tried It: Babyzen Yoyo — The Stroller You Can Actually Take on an Airplane

We Tried It: Babyzen Yoyo stroller

Who tried it: Rennie Dyball, Senior Editor

Why she did it: A stroller you can take on an airplane as a carry-on? This I’ve got to see.

Plus, celeb mom-of-five Natalie Hanson (a fan of the Yoyo), told me on Twitter that she’s constantly “trying to reach a state of stroller nirvana.”

I may only have one baby, but I feel her on the sentiment and I wondered whether a stroller that folds this small might be the key to baby gear bliss.

Pros: Well, there’s the obvious: the Yoyo is airline certified to be the size of a piece of carry-on luggage (collapsed size: 20.5 x 17 x 7 inches). And it’s 12.8 pounds. And it’s got this magical unfold with just the flick of a wrist. (Like a yo yo. Get it?)

Mommy & Me! Beyoncé and Blue Ivy Play Dress Up at Art Exhibit

07/08/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

Thousands swarmed New York City’s now-closed Domino Factory recently to marvel at Kara Walker‘s sugar-covered sphinx.

But, it turns out, nothing was quite as sweet as the mother-daughter fashion moment between Beyoncé and Blue Ivy.

In a series of snapshots uploaded to her website, Beyoncé, Jay Z and their 2-year-old can be seen taking in the artwork — and sneaking in a few snuggles!

And while we always love a glimpse at hip hop’s royal family, we were even more excited when we noticed the songstress and her adorable Mini Me used the outing to show off their matching floral frocks from Dolce & Gabbana.
