Christina Applegate is many things — including an Emmy-winning actress, a cancer survivor and a philanthropist.

But there’s another side of the Anchorman star that nobody knew about … until now!

According to the actress, she’s a total dance mom to her 3½-year-old ballet dancer, daughter Sadie Grace.

“Sometimes I’ll find myself watching her in class, and I’m like, ‘Oh my God, you’re so being a dance mom,’ ” Applegate, 42, told PEOPLE at the Fourth Annual Celebration of Dance Gala presented by The Dizzy Feet Foundation on Sunday.

“I’m sitting [there] in my head going, ‘Why isn’t she pointing her foot that way?! Someone needs to go in there and fix her foot!'”

Applegate, who can no longer dance herself because of injuries — but still occasionally guest-judges on So You Think You Can Dance, grew up with an extreme passion for the sport.

Alyssa Milano: How I Knew I Was Having a Girl

07/23/2014 at 11:00 AM ET

Alyssa Milano could tell something was different about her second pregnancy when she found herself feeling nauseated — a fate she avoided while carrying son Milo Thomas, who turns 3 next month.

“I had morning sickness this time, but it went away right at 12 weeks,” Milano, 41, says in the August/September issue of Fit Pregnancy, on newsstands Thursday. “With Milo, I didn’t have a minute of morning sickness. So I knew it was going to be a girl.”

The Mistresses star and husband David Bugliari announced in May that they’re expecting a daughter in early fall. And just like last time around, she’s setting aside obsessing over her image to focus on delivering and nurturing her baby girl.

Kerri Walsh Jennings is feeling the heat.

“Man, I’m a little overwhelmed at the moment,” Walsh Jennings told PEOPLE Monday … though “overwhelmed” may be an understatement.

On top of competing in the ASICS World Series of Beach Volleyball Tournament in Long Beach (and broadcast on NBC) July 22 -27 with her new partner April Ross, the pro will be gunning for her fourth gold medal at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro — all while raising her three young children with husband Casey Jennings.

“I think the scale is always slightly lopsided, but that’s part of the balancing act: accepting things as they are, working really hard to control what I can control and have faith and let go,” Walsh Jennings, 35, says. “We signed up for this, and we knew it was going to be crazy and hard. But it’s the most beautiful challenge, for sure.”

Jimmy Kimmel Introduces Newborn Daughter Jane

07/22/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

Jimmy, you big (kinda) softy.

On Monday night, late-night host Jimmy Kimmel revealed pictures of his daughter, Jane – who was born on July 10 – though he did so in a decidedly Kimmel-esque manner.

Kimmel announced that on the show’s two-week hiatus, he did some painting around the house, grew a beard and, oh yeah, had a baby.

“[Wife Molly McNearney, the show's co-head writer, and I] had a little girl, we named her after my grandmother — her name is Grandma Kimmel,” Kimmel continued. “Here she is with a bow on,” he said, cueing another pic. “She’s drunk as a skunk right there.”

With two little boys at home, Jared Padalecki wants to spend as much quality time with them as he can.

“After Supernatural I hope to kind of back off from the business and work more sporadically and be a father and be a basketball coach for my kids, maybe get into producing or something,” Padalecki, 32, told reporters at the CW TCA in Beverly Hills on Friday.

For now, the actor says there is no balance, but he makes sure he has dedicated family time for his sons, Thomas Colton, 2½, and Shepherd, 7 months.

“I am violently protective of my — I call it my off-time — when I’m not working. I’m straight home and whether they’re in Vancouver or they’re in Seattle or wherever we happen to be I’m straight to them,” Padalecki explains.

Extra host Mario Lopez is having a sporty summer with his two young children!

Between swimming every day in their new pool and heading to local parks in Los Angeles with biking and jogging strollers, the doting father spends his free time introducing his kids, daughter Gia Francesca, 3½, and son Dominic, 10 months, to the great outdoors.

“We just got our pool finished so when Gia is not in Montessori school or at ballet classes, I get her to go swimming with her little brother, who has learned to swim before walking,” Lopez told PEOPLE Saturday, while hosting a party aboard the Lady Windridge yacht in Miami Beach to promote Bonefish Grill‘s new menu.

He adds, “We all love summer because we can be outside and get a lot of exercise while having fun.”

Nick Lachey may have already taught son Camden John a lot of new things — but learning to test the limits wasn’t one of them.

With the VH1 host and wife Vanessa‘s son set to celebrate his second birthday in September, the couple are learning firsthand what the terrible twos entail.

“He knows the word ‘no’ — of course he didn’t learn it from me, but he knows the word,” Lachey told PEOPLE at friend Matt Leinart‘s 8th annual Celebrity Bowl for Charity on Thursday.

“He’s a typical 2-year-old. He sees how much he can get away with and pushes the end of the envelope, but it’s a lot of fun.”

But the proud dad admits there’s plenty of exciting times, too. “It’s a great age. He’s discovering his personality, he’s getting into everything [and] he’s talking like crazy,” he says. “They start to figure things out and push their boundaries.”
