When your mom is Sarah Michelle Gellar, a trip to New York City comes with some serious perks.

“I’m off on a girls weekend with two five year olds,” the actress posted on Instagram before taking off for the Big Apple. “My airplane cocktail has been replaced with water #Mocktail #WishMeLuck.”

First stop for Gellar and her daughter Charlotte Grace? A trip to Times Square.

“My hometown can definitely be a bit overwhelming,” the native New Yorker captioned a photo of her 5-year-old taking in the sights. “My little #Angeleno daughter #NYPride.”

From there, it was a backstage pass to Broadway, where the trio caught up with Kristin Chenoweth.

“Auntie Kristin teaching Charlotte the ins and outs of being a Broadway star #OnThe20thCentury,” Gellar, 37, wrote alongside a cute pic of her daughter with Chenoweth. “@kchenoweth the greatest talent in the tiniest body and all love.”

Ellen Pompeo: My Daughter Asked If Her Sister Was Here to Stay

03/04/2015 at 11:45 AM ET

When Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery first brought home daughter Sienna May, they thought their firstborn, Stella Luna, had found her person.

“She liked her at first,” the Grey’s Anatomy star said during a Wednesday appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

However, it wasn’t long before things between the sisters started to go south. “After three months, she was like, ‘Is she leaving?’ ” Pompeo, 45, recalls. “I was like, ‘No, no, she’s going to live here.’ And she was like, ‘Oh, okay.’ ”

Adds the actress, “She had about a month where she was not in a good mood. Bad mood every day for a month. And now that passed and now she’s fine.”

Michelle Williams on Being a Single Mom in Show Business: I’m Exhausted!

03/03/2015 at 04:00 PM ET

Oscar-nominated actress and full-time mother Michelle Williams has it all … besides a good night’s sleep.

“I feel like I’m so good at raising a kid when I’m not working. I don’t forget anything. I’ve got everything covered,” she says in the April issue of ELLE UK, on stands March 5.

“It’s a real luxury to have a moment when I’m not scrambling. I feel like most of my life, I’m trying to do two things at once, both to the best of my abilities. So that leaves me feeling pretty exhausted.”

The star — who is raising 9-year-old Matilda Rose, her daughter with the late Heath Ledger — has even gained a reputation among her friends for being tired.

“I’m the person who falls asleep all the time,” she tells the magazine. “You invite me over for dinner or to a party, and there’s a whole scrapbook of pictures of me napping. I’ve even been given a nickname because of my snoring.”

Carrie Underwood is blown away: She’s a mom!

The country singer welcomed her first child, a son, with husband Mike Fisher on Friday, Feb. 27, Underwood announced Tuesday on Facebook.

“Tiny hands and tiny feet … God has blessed us with an amazing gift! Isaiah Michael Fisher — born February 27,” the first-time mom captioned a sneak peek of her newborn.

Fisher’s paternity leave was cut short as The Nashville Predators hockey player was back on the ice for a Saturday match in their hometown. But his son’s birth could be his good luck charm: The star forward scored and his team earned yet another win, a possible lock-in for the playoffs despite losing Tuesday night’s game in New Jersey.

“We were excited; there’s nothing better than being a dad. Obviously, the important thing is everyone is feeling good and mom’s feeling good,” Fisher told reporters after the loss. “We’re definitely blessed to have him join us in our lives. There’s no better feeling.”

When in need of some life advice, there’s one gal pal that Jennifer Garner can always be sure to rely on: Reese Witherspoon.

“If I run into Reese, she and I have so much to talk about,” Garner, 42, told PEOPLE at the press day for her new film Danny Collins, in which she stars alongside Al Pacino. “We’ll be on the street corner and just be like, ‘What do you do about this, and how did you handle this?’ ”

She continues, “I’m so grateful for that very specific kind of friend.”

A typical juicy conversation that takes place between the two hard-working Hollywood mothers may specifically consist of whether or not a role is worth (temporarily) departing from motherhood.

“I have such a big thing to balance [jobs] against that it has to be something I love so much,” Garner says of feeling “surprised,” but grateful every time that she gets handed a new offer and has to think about calling in the in-laws for some long-term babysitting.

Ryan Reynolds visited The Tonight Show Monday night, and as new parents often do, talked about his newborn baby. (Of course, because it’s a conversation with Jimmy Fallon, you have to get through a few musical impressions, including Michael McDonald, first.)

Our baby, in particular, is, we think, allergic to sleep,” Reynolds said while talking about his 9-week-old daughter with wife Blake Lively.

“We think that she thinks she’s protecting us from the sleep monsters,” Reynolds continues. “Like, ‘Oh, I have to keep them up or the sleep monsters will get them.’ ”

But in between all those sleepless nights the proud parents have endured, the first-time father came up with a solution. Unfortunately, he adds, his plan has yet to work on his baby girl.

Tamera Mowry-Housley: Why I Didn’t Have to Tell Tia I Was Pregnant

03/02/2015 at 06:45 PM ET

Tamera Mowry-Housley may have been the first to get pregnant with her second child, but it was Tia Mowry-Hardict who beat her to the big reveal.

“We have this thing where we wait until eight weeks because we want to make sure everything is okay,” Mowry-Housley, 36, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

“But my sister gets it because we’re twins. She just called me and she was like, ‘Are you pregnant?’ And I said, ‘Yep, I am!’ ”

Breaking the news to her husband Adam Housley however, was much more of a surprise. The mom-to-be hid her positive pregnancy stick in her purse and let the senior news correspondent at Fox News discover the happy news on his own.

“I surprised him at work and then I gave my purse to Adam and I was like, ‘Adam, I can’t find my keys. I’m having a really hard time … Did I put them in my purse?’ ” she recalls. “Then he was looking through my purse and saw the pregnancy test.”

She adds, “Adam is always shocked and excited all at the same time. It’s quite a sight to see!”
