Just because she’s pregnant with her first child doesn’t mean that Haylie Duff has been taking it easy when it comes to her exercise routine.

“It feels good to be active a little bit every day,” Duff, 29, told PEOPLE at the Reebok FitHub Studio City Grand Opening. “I think it helps your body feel looser. Your body doesn’t feel like your own for a while, so it’s nice to get it moving every day.”

While the Real Girls Kitchen host says she was more cautious about the types of exercises she did in the beginning of her pregnancy, she’s now back to a regular routine.

“I’m doing a lot of yoga, I’m doing a lot of Pilates, I’m going on walks, I’m spinning,” she says. “You get this boost of energy back after a while, so I think that’s contributing to my working out a little bit more.”

Carrie Underwood Gives Her Unborn Baby Private Concerts

12/09/2014 at 11:00 AM ET

While Carrie Underwood is pregnant with her first child, her unborn baby boy has got the best seats in the house.

“I feel like he hears me singing whether he would like that or not,” Underwood, 31, told Jimmy Fallon on Monday. “I mean, that’s what I do. He doesn’t have a choice.”

Given his lack of choice in the matter, Underwood has been trying to show her baby some love by making sure that her singing is on point — at all times.

“If I’m just in my car, driving, I feel like I have to make it good because,” she continued in a whisper, “he’s listening. He’s always in there.”

She added: “I just want to do a good job for him!”

Molly Sims has a lot to look forward to in the coming weeks besides the holidays.

The actress, model, and author — already mom to son Brooks Alan, 2 1/2 — will be learning the sex of her second baby.

“We’re going to find out soon, like in two weeks, three weeks. We’re excited,” she told PEOPLE at Old Navy + Novogratz This Is Family event at Fig & Olive in West Hollywood.

Although Sims, 41, has a lot to be excited about, she knows that she has difficult pregnancy days waiting for her just around the corner.

“I’m feeling good. I’m six months so I’m in the honeymoon [phase], which is slowly going to end soon,” she shares. “I call it the dark days.”

Haylie Duff: We’ve Put Our Wedding Plans on Hold

12/08/2014 at 02:00 PM ET

Haylie Duff‘s pregnancy is truly icing on her wedding cake.

“It’s pretty cool to think our daughter is going to be at our wedding,” the mom-to-be’s fiancé Matt Rosenberg told reporters at the 4th Annual Santa’s Secret Workshop in West Hollywood on Saturday.

But the Real Girls Kitchen host — who’s in her second trimester — admits that since she and Rosenberg discovered they had a bun in the oven, their wedding plans have been put on the back burner for a bit.

“We still talk about things we want to do, but it’s a big change with the baby coming,” Duff, 29, explains. “We’re just trying to focus on one thing first and then we’ll do it.”

Aside from playing the name game and dreaming up her ideal nursery, Duff’s focus has been staying fit. Fortunately, her healthy pregnancy cravings are making it easy.

“I drink a lot of green smoothies,” she says. “I think I’ve craved health food, which is weird, and then the occasional mac and cheese.”

Beverley Mitchell Is ‘Terrified’ to Have a Son

12/08/2014 at 11:00 AM ET

Beverley Mitchell is getting ready to face her fears.

The mom-to-be, who showed off her bump at the 4th Annual Santa’s Secret Workshop in West Hollywood on Saturday afternoon, admitted that the idea of welcoming a son is a “scary” thought.

“I’m terrified because I’ve got the girl thing down. Little boys pee on everything!” Mitchell, 33, joked to reporters.

The 7th Heaven alum, who was accompanied by her husband Michael Cameron and daughter Kenzie Lynne, says, “Everyone keeps telling us, ‘Oh wow, you’re so screwed!’ It’s really scary. Instead of people being like, ‘It’s amazing,’ they’re just like, ‘Ho ho ho!’ “

She adds, “I think both of us are a little scared and we have no idea what we’re getting ourselves into.”

Blake Lively Plans to Take Parenting Cues from Her Mom

12/03/2014 at 11:00 AM ET

Blake Lively‘s as excited as any new mom-to-be — and she’s all ears when it comes to parenting tips.

“If I could pass along anything that my mother or my sisters taught me, I feel like my kids will be very well off,” the expectant mom told PEOPLE Tuesday in New York at L’Oréal Paris’s ninth annual Women of Worth Awards.

Lively and other stars — including Julianne Moore and Diane Keaton — gathered to honor 10 extraordinary women who are making a difference in their communities and around the world. And the actress was thrilled to be meeting the women.

“I’m also fortunate enough to be amongst women like this. The woman tonight who I’m honoring, Brittany Wenger, created this app at 16 years old to help diagnose cancer,” she says.

“I’m fortunate to come across people like that. And anything that I learn to be able to expose my children to and instill any sort of values or motivation in them, that’s exciting.”
