Zoë Saldana Jokes She Might Need Three Halloween Costumes

10/02/2014 at 04:00 PM ET

Zoë Saldana is all about fake it, ’till you make it — especially when it comes to morning sickness.

On Wednesday, the actress looked pretty in pink when she stepped out in a bubblegum-hued Christian Dior trapeze dress at the Academy’s Opening Night of Hollywood Costume in Los Angeles.

And while long, flowing frocks have been a staple for Saldana, 36, throughout her pregnancy, she encourages other moms to embrace the bump — even if that means masking a few symptoms.

“It’s just wear what feels comfortable. But whatever it is you’re feeling internally, doesn’t mean that you have to look it,” she told PEOPLE.

“If you’re having morning sickness, please don’t dress like a ‘morning sick’ person. Make an effort and look beautiful because it’s a beautiful time.”

Kristen Bell Wows on the Red Carpet – After a Small Shoe Snafu

10/02/2014 at 11:00 AM ET

Kristen Bell has pregnancy problems!

Although the mom-to-be looked stunning in a fitted Dsquared2 black halter dress while at the premiere of her husband Dax Shepard‘s new movie, The Judge, it took a last-minute joint effort to pull it all off.

While on their way to the red carpet in Los Angeles on Wednesday, the actress, 34, experienced a bit of a shoe snafu when her burgeoning belly made it difficult to finish dressing.

Luckily for Bell, Shepard, 39, was happy to step in as her stylist.

“The bad news: [you] can no longer reach your feet,” she Tweeted, along with a photo of the actor coming to her rescue. “The good news: [you] have a nice hubby who’ll help put on your shoes.”

Ali Larter: Why a Second Pregnancy Is a ‘Little Less Charming’

As the spokeswoman for Dole’s new nutritious Garden Soup, Ali Larter is literally the poster child for healthy eating — but when it comes to pregnancy cravings, she’s willing to break a few rules.

“I try to be healthy. I’ll eat green, but a salad is not a meal for me when I’m pregnant,” the Legends star, 38, tells PEOPLE.

Now that she’s expecting her second child this winter, Larter has been rounding out her meals by catering to a few of her cravings.

“I have allowed myself to have some pasta and all I really want is bread slathered in cheese,” the mom-to-be admits, adding pregnancy is “the one time” she eases up on her eating plan.

But besides the change in diet, the actress — who has yet to find out the sex of her baby on the way — says it’s been a completely different experience than it was when she was expecting her son, 3½-year-old Theodore Hayes.

Earlier this month, Carrie Underwood announced that she and her husband, hockey player Mike Fisher, are expecting their first child — and apparently the big news is still soaking in for the singer.

“It’s still kind of weird, to be honest,” Underwood, 31, said Friday on the Today show.

“Sometimes I’ll be with my husband, and it’s like, ‘I’m gonna be a mom. You’re gonna be a dad. Is this real life?’ But we’re really excited.”

As far as what kind of mom she’ll be, Underwood hopes the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. “I have a wonderful mother,” she said. “If I can be even a little bit like that, I think we’ll be good.”

Underwood also revealed big music news. She’s releasing a new single, “Something in the Water,” off her first Greatest Hits album, due out Dec. 9.

In a move that would make Veronica Mars proud, Kristen Bell has cracked the case of the baby name game.

She and husband Dax Shepard were “completely stumped” about what to call their second child earlier this summer, but the expectant parents have now solved the mystery.

“We had a little bit of a breakthrough. We’ve settled on one, thankfully,” Bell, 34, tells PEOPLE. “It’s a lot of pressure, especially because we felt ‘Lincoln’ was so perfect.”

As for when almost 18-month-old daughter Lincoln‘s little brother or sister is due, she says, “Hopefully sometime soon!”

And what does she think of Shepard’s new bell-shaped tattoo on his wedding finger?

“It was surprising. He just came home with a Band-Aid on his finger one day. Those are the kinds of surprises I get at home,” she jokes. “And people wonder why I keep letting him knock me up.”

Sarah Drew: Why I Struggled to Embrace My First Pregnancy

09/24/2014 at 11:00 AM ET

After starting off her second pregnancy with severe morning sickness, Sarah Drew is now taking frequent trips to the bathroom throughout the night, has a strict feeding schedule and is constantly fighting a craving for sweets.

But looks can be deceiving. Despite the rough ride, the actress admits she’s enjoying the experience in a way that she was unable to when pregnant with her now 2½-year-old son Micah Emmanuel.

“The first time it wasn’t just the physicality, it was the emotional weight, too,” the Grey’s Anatomy star tells Fit Pregnancy‘s October/November issue.

“I was mourning the end of a massive chapter in my life … I knew I’d have to sacrifice a lot more than I was used to sacrificing, but I didn’t know how it was going to look and I didn’t know if I was going to be a good mom.”
