Ellen Pompeo on Raising Her Mixed-Race Daughters to ‘See a Lot of Images of Beautiful, Powerful, Strong Black Women’

07/28/2016 at 01:00 PM ET

Ellen Pompeo is looking to the strong women of the world to set a good example for her girls.

Specifically, the mom of daughters Sienna May, 2 next month, and 6½-year-old Stella Luna celebrates the success of African American women — and makes it a point to show off their accomplishments to her children.

“My daughters are black so it’s very important to me that they see a lot of images of beautiful, powerful, strong black women,” the Grey’s Anatomy actress, 46, tells PEOPLE.

“Every time there is a black woman on a magazine cover, whether it is Kerry Washington or whoever it is, I make sure that magazine is in my house and on my table. For me, that’s super important.”

Courtney Stodden is continuing to be open about her grief over the loss of her unborn child — this time addressing the baby she lost directly.

“My precious Angel,” begins a letter Stodden, who miscarried at around 13 weeks earlier in July, posted to Instagram late Wednesday evening.

“I never had a chance to hold your tiny hand. Never will I get to kiss your little warm feet. Never will I have the fortune to look into your precious eyes.”

The note by Stodden, who broke the news she and husband of five years Doug Hutchison were expecting a baby in May, also included wishes she had for her child.

“I hope that you know I wanted to give you life … a beautiful life — and desired so much to watch you grow into an incredible human being,” the model and reality star, 21, continues.

Christina Applegate and Kristen Bell know that when you live with young children, sometimes you do whatever it takes to get a little extra sleep.

The Bad Moms costars recall mornings when they both let their parenting guard down a bit so they could stay in bed. Bell, who is married to Dax Shepard and mom to daughters Lincoln, 3, and Delta, 19 months, was in a related situation recently when the family stayed in a hotel.

“[My baby] woke up at 6 in the morning and my husband, the toddler and I all pretended to be asleep for probably 30 or 40 minutes,” the Veronica Mars alum, 36, tells PEOPLE.

“And finally, I hear the baby reaching towards my purse and going, ‘Mama, mama … bar, please, please. Bar.’

“I got up, handed her the Greens Bar — it’s a healthy bar she can eat — I opened it up, gave it to her in the crib and went back to bed. And we all woke up around 8.”
