The joys of first-time parenting have been treating new mom Megan Hilty just smashingly.

“I never actually thought I’d have children of my own, so every day is this new adventure,” the Broadway star told PEOPLE about 9-month-old daughter Viola Philomena during the Voice for the Voiceless: Stars for Foster Kids event benefiting nonprofit You Gotta Believe in New York City on Monday night.

“She’s swimming, has all these great party tricks, and waves at people,” Hilty adds.

But the most memorable milestone for baby Viola as of late? Her first word!

” ‘Mama’ was first, but she called both of us Mama,” shares the former Smash star, alluding to her husband, musician Brian Gallagher.

Megan Hilty: Why Losing the Pregnancy Pounds Was Not My Priority

04/22/2015 at 02:00 PM ET

Megan Hilty is still getting used to her new role as mom.

“Everything surprises me about motherhood,” the Smash star, 34, told PEOPLE Tuesday while helping to raise awareness about global food waste for Earth Day with Glad.

“It is really hard, but it’s so worth it when she laughs or when I see her with my husband. It’s just the greatest feeling.”

Her 7-month-old daughter, Viola Philomena, loves to get giggly, but it’s usually at Hilty’s expense.

“Anything that makes me look like an idiot, she’ll laugh at, so I spend a lot of my days now looking like an idiot, just dancing around and singing in the worst voice possible,” she jokes.

With one on the way, Megan Hilty is making the most of her pregnancy.

Her favorite perk? “I like that I can eat just about anything, and nobody can say anything about it,” the former Smash star, 33, told PEOPLE with a laugh at the Begin Again premiere in New York on Wednesday. “I’m just trying to really enjoy that part.”

In addition to indulging her cravings, the one-time Wicked star, who’s expecting a daughter with husband Brian Gallagher in late September, says her pregnancy has been a smooth ride so far. “You know, it’s been so easy — knock on wood!”

Hilty’s keeping her expectant style easy, too: “I’ve done the Bella Bands to keep my own jeans up, but now it’s summer time,” she says. “I’m just dresses, muumuus, all that stuff all the time.”
