Why Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard Plan to Focus on Their Firstborn

11/25/2014 at 09:00 AM ET

With a second baby on the way, Kristen Bell‘s growing belly is naturally the center of attention.

“We goof off and make a lot of jokes about it in our household and I think that’s what keeps it fun and light,” Bell tells PEOPLE about her baby bump. “Pregnancy is certainly a weird and strange metamorphosis.”

And with a work schedule that hasn’t stopped, the mom-to-be and her husband, Dax Shepard, couldn’t resist highlighting Bell’s burgeoning belly in their Samsung holiday ad.

“Why is yours twice as big as mine?” asks the Parenthood actor about his wife’s festive stocking in the commercial. “I’m stocking for two,” the House of Lies actress quips.

Ryan Reynolds has no fears about becoming a first-time dad with wife Blake Lively, who’s expecting the A-list couple’s first baby in early 2015 — especially when it comes to the messier side of parenting.

“I don’t have a weak stomach,” the actor, 38, told PEOPLE on Saturday at The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research Benefit in New York. “I’m good with diapers and diarrhea and all that kind of stuff because I have lots of nieces and nephews, so I’ve done it all before.”

So what part of fatherhood is he looking forward to most?

“I’m just excited about having a buddy,” he said. “We don’t know if it’s a boy or a girl yet, but whatever it is, you have this tether to reality that never goes away.”

His enthusiasm should come as no surprise to Lively, 27, who recently told PEOPLE that her hunky hubby “takes pretty good care of me.”

Kourtney Kardashian: Why I Won’t Have a Home Birth

11/19/2014 at 03:30 PM ET

Keeping up with a newborn isn’t easy, but Kourtney Kardashian is happy to take on the challenge by herself.

When the reality star welcomes her third child in December, the mom-to-be already has plans in place to take a serious time out.

“I love doing everything myself at the beginning,” Kardashian, 35, says in the December/January issue of Fit Pregnancy.

“I’m not getting a baby nurse. I take two months off and no one is allowed to bother me or talk to me about anything work-related — or maybe three months this time.”

The world discovered Carrie Underwood was having a boy when Brad Paisley spilled the beans at the CMA Awards, but the mom-to-be and Mike Fisher made sure that they found out in a much more intimate setting.

And no, it wasn’t at the doctor’s office.

“It’s kind of a sterile place,” Underwood told ABC News Radio. “We got to see all the pictures and everything. It was really cool to see that, but whenever she’d get near those parts, we would look away.”

The singer, 31, who says she and her hockey player husband, 34, suspected it was a boy all along, asked the doctor to write down the baby’s sex, so they could look at it when the time and place felt right.

Bump, there it is!

Mom-to-be Liv Tyler gave the first good glimpse at her baby belly in a black-and-white snapshot taken while lounging in bed on Sunday.

Tyler, 37 — who, in addition to her baby on the way with boyfriend David Gardner, is also mom to son Milo, 9, with ex-husband Royston Langdon — recently told Town & Country she is taking advantage of all her pregnancy perks.

“The most fun thing about being pregnant is having those mom hormones flowing around,” she said in the magazine’s December issue.

“You’re more present in your body and it’s making me a better mother for Milo. You become more like a child. When you’re tired, you have to sleep immediately. When you’re hungry …”
