He may be an Oscar-winning actor and director, but like most parents, Kevin Costner still plays “Let it Go” on repeat.

“My little girl [Grace Avery, 4½,] dresses up every day,” he says. “It’s the Frozen household. Everybody has to freeze when she says so. The boys [Hayes Logan, 6 next month, and Cayden Wyatt, 7½,] are just so sick of it!”

But for Costner, married to Christine since 2004, those family moments are what make life so fulfilling. “It’s really fun to see [all my kids] together,” says the dad of seven, who also has four grown children.

“It’s been a really good life and my children are living proof.”

Now starring in Black or White as a widowed grandfather fighting for custody of his biracial granddaughter, Costner, 60, is also relishing this time in his career — one that hasn’t been without a few bumps.

Cobie Smulders‘s baby has met its mama!

The actress and her husband, Saturday Night Live star Taran Killam, recently welcomed their second child, PEOPLE confirms.

The new addition joins big sister Shaelyn Cado, 5½, whom the couple, both 32, welcomed in 2009.

Smulders casually broke the news this week while promoting two new movies at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

“I’m in Sundance and I have a three week old baby, so I can certainly relate,” the actress told Bustle of Unexpected, in which she plays a teacher who finds herself pregnant and forming a friendship with her high school student, who is also expecting.

Sarah Drew Introduces Daughter Hannah Mali Rose; Opens Up About Time in the NICU

01/28/2015 at 12:15 PM ET

When Sarah Drew began having contractions more than three weeks before her due date, the actress couldn’t believe she was going into labor.

“I was in total denial that it was happening,” the Grey’s Anatomy star, who had been due Dec. 27, tells PEOPLE in its latest issue. “All of the baby stuff was in boxes in the basement and there was nothing prepared.”

But after giving birth to Hannah Mali Rose on Dec. 3, Drew — who’s also mom to son Micah Emmanuel, 3, with husband Peter Lanfer — was “beside herself” when the newborn faced serious health complications. As a result, the couple’s baby girl had to spend 11 days in the neonatal intensive care unit.

“Her lungs were not totally ready to be outside of the womb [which led to] an infection, plus she had issues with blood sugar because I had gestational diabetes,” the actress explains. “It’s the worst thing in the world because you go into the hospital and you expect to leave with your baby. We didn’t know how long she would have to be there.”

Kim Kardashian West is one busy mama!

Between breaking the Internet, posing in a fur bikini and potty training her 19-month-old daughter North, the reality queen has her hands full.

But she’s more than ready to add to the welcome chaos. “We’ve really been trying for another kid,” Kardashian, 34, tells PEOPLE in the new issue. “More kids can’t come soon enough!”

Along with husband Kanye West, the family of three recently moved into a new Los Angeles home and they’re relishing life as parents — all of it.

North “is so smart,” she says proudly. “She is halfway potty trained, which is insane for her age. Last night she looked up at the sky and pointed and said, ‘Moon, Mom! Moon!’ I couldn’t believe she knew that.”

Drew Barrymore: ‘I Didn’t Really Have Parents’

01/27/2015 at 02:00 PM ET

How does Drew Barrymore know she’s a great mom?

The actress, who appears on the cover of More magazine’s February issue, credits her difficult childhood with teaching her to be a better mother.

“I didn’t really have parents, you know?” Barrymore, 39, says. “And therefore the kind of parent I will be is a good, present parent.”

She adds: “In a way, maybe that was a detriment to my youth, but it’ll be the biggest asset to my adulthood.”
