With four children — Shaya, 7, Rain, 8, Sierra, 13, and Neriah, 15 — and their busy schedules to juggle, Brooke Burke-Charvet admits being a working mom is a balancing act.

“It’s probably the biggest challenge, that work-life balance,” Burke-Charvet told PEOPLE Friday on the set of her upcoming talk show, Breaking Bread with Brooke Burke, airing on FeeIn.

“Stay-at-home moms think they have it harder, working moms think they have it harder — I do both. The one thing that I think [my husband] David [Charvet] and I do is we compromise our social lives so that we can be home at night with our kids. We really enjoy that family time.”

But, when the hands-on mom has to occasionally miss some of her kids’s events because of work duties, she admits, “Communication is key.”

Inside Naya Rivera’s Neutral-Toned Nursery — Inspired by a Teepee!

06/30/2015 at 09:55 PM ET

Naya Rivera‘s nursery is something to cheer about.

The former Glee star shows off her baby’s sleep space in a series of photos for My Domaine, in which she shares that the inspiration behind the neutral-toned nursery was a black-and-white teepee she and husband Ryan Dorsey purchased before the pregnancy.

Once the couple — who wed in July 2014 — discovered they were expecting their first child in late summer, Rivera, 28, and designer Angelo Surmelis went to work creating a room centered on her fun find from The Land of Nod.

“I actually was really inspired by the teepee and sort of built the room around that,” she says. “Then I stayed within the color palette of black, white, cream, and gray.”

Drew Sidora is officially a mom for the second time — albeit much earlier than she was expecting.

The Hindsight actress and her husband Ralph Pittman welcomed son Machai David Pittman at 3:38 a.m. on Tuesday, June 30, Sidora’s rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

Machai was originally expected to be born in August. But after three weeks of hospitalization, Sidora’s labor was induced and now “mother and baby are in good health and resting,” according to the rep.

“At 4 lbs. 4.5 ounces and 16.5 inches, Machai is truly a miracle,” the rep continues. “We’re asking for prayers and wishing her and her husband the best.”

Already a mom to Josiah, her 4-year-old son from a previous relationship, Sidora, 30, says a lot was taken into consideration when choosing a name for her new baby boy.

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

“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.

When it comes to taking a baby bump selfie, Brooklyn Decker is a bit of an expert.

The model-turned-actress took to Instagram on Monday to show off her growing bump in a mirror selfie.

The snapshot shows a smiling Decker dressed in a waist-cinching button-down plaid shirt and trucker hat with a stitched-on “#PIMPINJOY ” patch on its front. We wouldn’t expect anything less from the hilarious mom-to-be, who spoke about her pregnancy to PEOPLE in May.

“Getting congratulated for boning is super exciting,” she joked of expecting her first child with husband Andy Roddick. “It’s strange because you finally admit to your father, ‘Dad, I do it.’ ”

Evangeline Lilly Expecting Second Child

06/30/2015 at 02:20 AM ET

We blame Lost. When Evangeline Lilly starred on the cult hit, she became very good at keeping a secret. And the actress showed that she’s lost none of those skills when she surprised everyone on Monday by revealing that she’s pregnant. The actress showed off her baby bump for the first time on the red carpet for the premiere of her new movie, Ant-Man, in Los Angeles.

“It’s so great. I feel wonderful,” Lilly told PEOPLE. “I have to say, high heels and doing a red carpet is starting to ache.”

Wearing a one-shoulder gown, the 35-year-old held her hand over her tummy and gave away a secret that she’s been keeping for a while — she’s expecting her second child with partner Norman Kali, a production assistant she met on the set of Lost.
