There’s a lot that comes with having a baby, but choosing a godparent is a high priority for Jaime King.

“You know it doesn’t matter where you come from or who you are or what you do,” King, 36, told PEOPLE at the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund‘s 2nd Annual Super Saturday L.A. event, sponsored by FIJI Water, on Saturday. “For me, choosing a godparent is a very sacred experience.”

The Hart of Dixie star, there to support the OCRF and Mary Kay Cosmetics, made the announcement via Instagram in March that she’d chosen singer and BFF Taylor Swift as godmother to her second child with husband Kyle Newman.

Jaime King: My Son’s Biggest Tantrums Are Over Makeup

05/07/2015 at 08:00 PM ET

Every child has a favorite toy and for Jaime King‘s son, it’s his mama’s makeup bag.

The 36-year-old actress told PEOPLE at the Plenti event in New York City on Wednesday that her 19-month-old son James Knight “is like a professional makeup artist now.”

“He sat in my lap since he was 6 weeks old … watching my makeup being done for every event,” King says. “Now we had to get him his own little makeup kit.”

And from the looks of it, it seems like he has already learned a lot. “He came down the other day — I was so proud of him — he came down with Touche Éclat concealer on his T-zone and under his eyes,” she shares.

“But it wasn’t blended in, it was like stripe, stripe, stripe, stripe, stripe and Burberry lipstick on his lips, but just clearly outside the lines. I was like, ‘Oh my God. This kid is amazing.’ ”

Good news for a good cause.

With his charity, the Andy Roddick Foundation, growing and her new show, Grace and Frankie, set to premiere on Friday, Andy Roddick and Brooklyn Decker knew they couldn’t keep their growing family — she’s pregnant! — a secret.

“I don’t know if we would have said anything at all, but with this event and her having to do stuff for her show on Netflix … We figured it would get out there anyway. There was no hiding it anymore,” the tennis star told PEOPLE Monday at the foundation’s 15th anniversary event.

“And, honestly, it drums up support for his organization — if people see the ARF logo behind us, then great. That’s just more support,” adds Decker.

One thing they are keeping a secret: The sex of their baby on the way. “The name is still debatable,” says Roddick. “We’re open to any and all suggestions. We’re going to figure it out as we go.”

Marisa Miller: Why I’m Posing Nude (While Pregnant!) for PETA

05/05/2015 at 01:30 PM ET

Marisa Miller is baring it all for a cause close to her heart.

The mom-to-be — who previously posed nude while pregnant with son Gavin Lee, now 2  — is stripping down to show her support for animals in captivity as part of PETA‘s new campaign, SeaWorldofHurt.

“I’ve always been an animal lover and I do a lot with ocean conservation,” the model, 36, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

“I always see dolphins when I surf, but I didn’t have the knowledge about how they are acquired. When Blackfish came out, I saw it and I was so upset.”

For the ad, Miller shows off her baby belly while lying naked in a bathtub, mimicking the world of captured killer whales, who are confined to living in small enclosures.

“Even the tanks they do their ridiculous tricks in are way bigger than where they actually sleep,” she explains. “They’re completely confined. That’s why they have all these dental problems, because they are chewing on metal and concrete — they can’t even move.”
