Doutzen Kroes: Why I Needed the Sex of My Baby Confirmed – Twice

07/28/2014 at 04:00 PM ET

Doutzen Kroes always dreamed of having a daughter.

So when her doctor told her she was pregnant with a baby girl, it took a little convincing on her part.

“I wanted a girl so badly — I had it confirmed by two doctors!” the model mama, who shows off her baby belly in an exclusive photo from her upcoming feature in the September issue of Glamour, tells the magazine.

Alyssa Milano: How I Knew I Was Having a Girl

07/23/2014 at 11:00 AM ET

Alyssa Milano could tell something was different about her second pregnancy when she found herself feeling nauseated — a fate she avoided while carrying son Milo Thomas, who turns 3 next month.

“I had morning sickness this time, but it went away right at 12 weeks,” Milano, 41, says in the August/September issue of Fit Pregnancy, on newsstands Thursday. “With Milo, I didn’t have a minute of morning sickness. So I knew it was going to be a girl.”

The Mistresses star and husband David Bugliari announced in May that they’re expecting a daughter in early fall. And just like last time around, she’s setting aside obsessing over her image to focus on delivering and nurturing her baby girl.

Is Rachel Bilson thinking pink?

The Hart of Dixie actress and her longtime love, boyfriend Hayden Christensen, are expecting a daughter, a source tells PEOPLE.

A rep for Bilson denies the report and calls the source’s claim “speculation and gossip.”

Although the mom-to-be and the actor have stayed mum on pending parenthood — and have yet to officially announce they will welcome their first child together — sources confirmed to PEOPLE in May that Bilson was pregnant.

But when Bilson, 32, was spotted walking on a beach in Barbados, she let her belly do all the talking, showing off her bump in a patterned two-piece.

Expectant Kristen Bell ‘Completely Stumped’ on Name for Second Child

Kristen Bell has captivated children everywhere as the plucky Princess Anna in Disney’s hit animated musical Frozen.

But there’s one little girl who has yet to experience the magic: Bell’s daughter Lincoln, 15 months.

“She does not watch TV yet,” Bell, 33, tells PEOPLE. “She has no idea!”

Pediatricians recommend limiting TV viewing for children under 2, so Lincoln hasn’t see her mom or dad, Parenthood actor Dax Shepard, on the small screen. Once she’s old enough, though, Bell is happy Lincoln will learn Frozen’s brave lessons.

“I think it’s beautiful to show kids how great it can be to love through fear, to love someone even when they’re afraid to love themselves,” she says. “That’s a huge message I want to teach my kids: You’re allowed to be afraid, but you have to know why … and you have to try to love beyond that fear.”

The movie’s moral of sisterly love will take on an added significance soon: Bell is carrying her second child.

Kelly Rowland is having no trouble finding her motivation to stay fit during her pregnancy.

“Her number one concern is just to be healthy for her baby,” her trainer, Jeanette Jenkins, told PEOPLE at a party celebrating the 100th birthday of American icon Jack LaLanne in Los Angeles on Thursday. “She’s going to be the most incredible mom.”

Jenkins says the mother-to-be has been maintaining a regular workout schedule.

“We work out Monday through Friday, but we just keep it at a moderate level,” says Jenkins. “We stay within her doctor’s guidelines and work out anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour so it’s not anything exorbitant.”
