10/24/2014 at 01:00 PM ET

Since the birth of his 5-month-old daughter, Georgia Blue, country singer Joe Nichols is savoring each one of her adorable milestones.

“She’s growing like a weed and the changes are coming fast,” Nichols, 37, tells PEOPLE of his second daughter with wife Heather, 38. “She’s starting to giggle which is so cute and she’s getting her first little tooth on the bottom!”

Plus with his 2½-year-old daughter Dylan River already at home, the singer is loving being the only man of the house.

“I enjoy all the pink everywhere, being Heather’s husband and the daddy for the girls,” says Nichols, who also has a daughter, Ashelyn, 16, from a previous relationship. “I’ll do anything to make them happy.”

Ty Murray and Jewel’s Son Wants to Be ‘All Cowboy’d Up’

10/24/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

Ever since he became a father, Ty Murray has been telling PEOPLE that he doesn’t want son Kase Townes to one day follow in his dangerous footsteps as a professional bull rider.

Now 3 years old, Kase appears to have his own opinion on the matter — at least when it comes to the attire involved.

“This morning, Kase’s mom put a pair of sweatpants and a t-shirt on him and he said to me, ‘Daddy, let’s get all cowboy’d up,’ ” Murray tells PEOPLE with a laugh.

“I don’t know where he comes up with this stuff! I’ve never pushed being a cowboy at all. I don’t even know where he came up with that word.”

Molly Sims Says She Would ‘Love’ to Have a Daughter

10/23/2014 at 06:00 PM ET

It isn’t always easy finding the perfect fit when dressing for two.

Although Molly Sims announced her second pregnancy in September, the reality of her growing belly only recently set in.

“This week was the week that you know you’re pregnant because you can hardly fit into regular clothes — the belly busters are just not quite working,” Sims joked with reporters at the 2014 Elle Women in Hollywood Awards in Beverly Hills Monday night.

“It’s a little nerve-wracking. Every time you think, ‘Oh God,’ ” says Sims about dressing her burgeoning bump. “I tried on this skirt this afternoon [and] I couldn’t get it on. I’m like, there’s no way I just had a fitting again.”

Luckily for Sims, it was a quick fashion fix. “For some reason, I had it on wrong … Thank God,” she says of her black Lela Rose skirt.

While Fox News Channel anchor Megyn Kelly couldn’t be happier with the success of her TV show, the mom of three admits she could use a little bit more sleep.

“I have a setup that allows me to be a stay-at-home mom in the day and full-time employee in the night,” she tells PEOPLE. “It works out well for my home and work life, but it doesn’t leave a lot of time for rest.”

But Kelly, 43, isn’t complaining. After celebrating the one-year anniversary of her show on Oct. 7, she is thrilled by the 2.5 million viewers that tune in to watch her every night — even if her kids aren’t included in that number.

“I don’t think they know I’m actually on TV for a living,” she says of her daughter Yardley Evans, 3½, and two sonsEdward Yates, 5, and Thatcher Bray, 15 months.

First steps? Been there. First words? Done.

Malin Akerman‘s baby boy Sebastian has learned a rare new skill: He’s is trilingual!

“I feel like every day is a milestone, but he’s running and walking up and down steps on his own now talking three languages, so it’s amazing,” The Comeback star said at Saturday’s Environmental Media Awards, hosted at Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, California.

“Whenever he sees his dad he starts speaking Italian, he sees me and starts speaking Swedish, and his nanny speaks English,” she explains. “So, it’s really just amazing to watch how a child’s brain works.”

Kristen Bell‘s 18-month-old daughter Lincoln is already a great communicator.

“[She can say] a lot of two-syllable words, but she signs mostly because she’s really good at it,” the actress told PEOPLE at This Party Saves Lives event hosted by her company, This Bar Saves Lives, on Thursday night.

She adds, “People recommend doing signs because the baby can communicate with you and say, ‘I want an apple’ or ‘Look at the black dog,’ and you can actually form sentences.”

While Lincoln works on her signing skills, Bell, 34, and husband Dax Shepard, 39, are preparing for the upcoming arrival of their second child. The actress says her pregnancy has fortunately been a breeze — just like her first.

“Thank my lucky stars, it’s been a virtually identical pregnancy,” she shares. “Pregnancy can be really hard for women, and I’m lucky that I’m not really symptomatic. I’m okay with being on my feet and I’m lucky that my body feels really good.”

J.P. and Ashley Hebert Rosenbaum: How We’re Tackling Breastfeeding As a Team

10/17/2014 at 01:00 PM ET

J.P. and Ashley Hebert Rosenbaum‘s love story just keeps getting sweeter.

After paying tribute to their whirlwind romance with a travel-themed baby shower in July, the parents-to-be turned to planning a nursery for their baby boy — and it was obvious which direction they were heading.

“Ashley and J.P. have many memories of traveling together, so the nursery features a subtle travel theme,” designer Vanessa Antonelli, who worked with the couple on the room, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

Using a paneled wall as the focal point, the couple created a sophisticated sleep space featuring wall clocks representing the places they’ve visited together, chic accessories that play into the theme, including sailboats and maps, and a neutral color palette that can easily grow with their child.

“Ashley knew exactly what she wanted and worked with me to choose the pieces that went into the room,” says Antonelli. “But even more surprising was that she is a little contractor! Ashley actually put up most of that Stikwood wall all by herself.”

And just as she took to carpentry, Hebert Rosenbaum is already excelling at motherhood since the Sept. 30 arrival of son Fordham Rhys.

“Ashley has taken to motherhood like she has been doing it all her life. It always makes me smile to see how she handles Ford,” Rosenbaum says.
