Bill Rancic is one proud papa!

At just 2½ years old, his son Duke is already hitting some big milestones: The tyke speaks not just one, but three different languages.

“He can count to 10 in Spanish, which is pretty awesome,” the reality star tells PEOPLE of his son with Giuliana Rancic.

“And Giuliana’s teaching him Italian,” he adds. “It’s great! He’s a sponge.”

Of course, the 43-year-old dad is especially excited to see his son getting into sports. “We go to the park in the afternoon,” he shares. “I’ve got a little tee-ball set up and I’m teaching him to hit the ball. We’re having a lot of fun together.”

Molly Sims Shares Her Secret to Bouncing Back After Giving Birth

02/26/2015 at 12:30 PM ET

After tying the knot at 38, Molly Sims immediately wanted to start a family — and her wish came true when she got pregnant on her honeymoon.

Fast-forward to the couple trying to conceive their second child, and the model’s age — she was now 41 — posed a much bigger problem.

“People always think, ‘Oh, you have to take care of yourself once you get pregnant or when you have the baby,’ but your body is like a garden,” Sims says in the latest issue of The Bump.

“You have to feed it and make sure it’s fertile before you even start trying. I saw a great acupuncturist who put me on fertility teas.”

Once she became pregnant — Sims is now expecting a daughter in March — the mom-to-be stuck with her healthy habits but eased up on her workout routine.

“My body just didn’t feel like I needed it, especially in the middle months, and I didn’t want to push it as hard,” she explains. “Some days you have the energy, and some days you feel like you’ve been hit by a bus.”

Kelly Clarkson may be a hits machine, but when it came to naming her daughter, she admits that it didn’t take that much mental heavy lifting to conjure the unique moniker River Rose.

“We were going back and forth on what to name her,” the singer, 32, tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “And I like androgynous names.”

During one day of her pregnancy, she and husband Brandon Blackstock, 38, were relaxing at their Nashville-area home when inspiration struck.

“We live on a river, so it really wasn’t that creative,” Clarkson — whose new album Piece by Piece comes out March 3 — says with a laugh.

Alfonso Ribeiro: My Wife ‘Would Love’ to Keep Having Kids

02/25/2015 at 05:00 PM ET

While winning Dancing with the Stars, going on tour with the cast and producing a couple different shows at once is all very important, Alfonso Ribeiro has an even more significant role in life.

In fact, some may say, the most essential task of all: diaper duty.

“That’s the real job,” Ribeiro, 43, told PEOPLE at the premiere of Will Smith‘s new movie Focus in Hollywood on Tuesday night.

Ribeiro and wife Angela Unkrich are expecting their second child together — they are already parents to 15-month-old son Alfonso Lincoln — in the spring. “This pregnancy has been a breeze compared to the last,” the mom-to-be says.

If there were any hard feelings following their split in 2013, Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel have let them go — all for the sake of their son Walker Nathaniel.

“We were friends to start out with, but especially when you have a kid in the mix, there’s no time for any negativity,” the Murder in the First actor, 44, tells PEOPLE.

“He’s our main objective, he’s what’s most important for us, so we’re still there as a family.”

Recently, being there for each other has meant that the father-son duo have supported Menzel’s incredible success with the phenomenon “Let It Go,” the hit song from Disney’s Frozen.

“Watching Walker watch her [sing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl] and seeing the pride in his face is cool,” Diggs shares of the couple’s 5-year-old son. “He was at some playdate with a bunch of kids and the song came on. The kids said, ‘Oh, my mother is always singing this song,’ and he said, ‘No, my mother really sings this song!”
