Renee Oteri: I’m Having a Baby Boy!

08/27/2014 at 03:15 PM ET

Break out the blue confetti: Renee Oteri is expecting a second son!

The former Bachelor contestant and her new husband, Bracy Maynard, revealed the sex of their baby on the way during a gender reveal party on Saturday.

“We knew we wanted to do something special for our friends and family,” Oteri tells PEOPLE exclusively. “It felt like New Year’s and the Fourth of July combined … but a thousand times more exciting!”

Oteri, 32, and Maynard used a party popper for the big reveal, with guests cheering as blue pieces of paper rained down on the couple.

“Everyone, including ourselves, had such an adrenaline rush,” she says. “This definitely beats balloons or a color-filled cake.”

Dominique Moceanu Says Son’s Gymnastics Skills Are ‘Impressive’

08/26/2014 at 11:30 AM ET

The very first time Olympic gymnast Dominique Moceanu saw her 5-year-old son Vincent Michael do a back handspring, she was blown away.

“He’d only done it a couple of times with a spot,” she says. “But then a few weeks ago, all of a sudden, he just threw a back handspring.”

Vincent’s skill is more advanced than his mother’s was at that age — she says she didn’t learn the same stunt until she was 6 or 7.

“My husband and I both were like, ‘Wow! That’s pretty impressive and advanced for his age,’ ” says Moceanu, 32, who is married to Michael Canales, a surgeon and former gymnast.

Marla Sokoloff on Spending Time Away from Her Daughter

08/26/2014 at 11:00 AM ET

For Marla Sokoloff, life is a balancing act.

The actress admits that it can be challenging to dedicate herself both to her career and her 2½-year-old daughter Elliotte Anne.

“As an actor, you’re either working 18-hour days and you’re gone a lot, or you’re around, but you still have to go on meetings and auditions and proactively try to get work,” Sokoloff, 33, tells PEOPLE.

“Sometimes I’m like, ‘I got this! I’m the best mom ever!’ And then yesterday I had a day where I was driving home and I thought, ‘I feel like I suck today,’ ” The Fosters actress says.

“My heart was a little heavy because Elliotte was needing me and I wasn’t able to be there because of work, and I felt the guilt that you feel as a mom. Every day it’s different.”

08/25/2014 at 01:45 PM ET

Blue Ivy Carter was a ray of sunlight that lit up her mother’s face at the VMAs on Sunday — and her gleaming gold dress didn’t hurt the effect, either.

The hue of the 2½-year-old’s frock picked up the glimmering mosaic pieces on Beyoncé‘s bodysuit as the singer accepted the Video Vanguard Award from her daughter and her husband, Jay Z.

The good news: We tracked down Blue’s dress. The metallic mini shift dress — complete with too-cute flutter sleeves — is from Bonpoint and retailed for around $350.

For Olympic softball gold medalist Jennie Finch, there’s nothing like spending time outdoors with her children.

“If I tell them to play outside, they’ll say no, ” she says. “But if I go out there with them, it’s a whole different attitude. They love it!”

Being active as a family came easy for Finch, 33, and her husband, baseball player Casey Daigle.

“My husband and I both love to be outdoors,” the retired athlete says. “So it’s about leading by example and just encouraging my kids.”
