04/27/2015 at 02:00 PM ET

He struggled with alcoholism and drug addiction before becoming sober in 2004. She was a “good girl” who attended Catholic school followed by college.

But despite their polar-opposite upbringings in Michigan, Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell now find themselves married and completely in love.

“We come from such a different starting point, and I do think it’s probably the neatest thing about life,” the Parenthood star, 40, says during an appearance on Off Camera with Sam Jones, airing Wednesday at 10 p.m. on Audience Network.

“We live in the same house, we have the same two kids, we make the same amount of money, we have the same job … Look how different a path you can take and end up in the exact same spot in life. It’s insane.”

Soleil Moon Frye knows a thing or two about parenting. The former child star has two daughters with husband Jason GoldbergPoet, 9, and Jagger, 7 — and just last year, gave birth to her first son, Lyric.

“He’s such a good boy. And having a boy after two girls is such a different adventure,” Frye, 38, told PEOPLE at the Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Awards on Friday (where her show Home Made Simple won for Outstanding Lifestyle Program).

“I thought for sure we were having another girl. But it’s so different. He tumbles and you let him tumble. He rolls over when he falls. He’s a little man. It’s so crazy,” she gushed.

And little Lyric may already be getting set up for famous play dates! Frye’s friends, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher (who is Goldberg’s producing partner), gave birth to their daughter Wyatt just 4 months ago.

When asked if Wyatt and Lyric have had any play dates yet, Frye replied, “We have, yeah. I’ve certainly seen the baby. She’s absolutely beautiful.”

Staying sane isn’t easy for any mother, but fitness expert Jillian Michaels says she’s found a technique that allows her at least some semblance of balance: dedicating 12 hours a week to herself.

“With two young children, I had to figure out a way to balance my days,” Michaels, 41, tells PEOPLE after she participated in the annual March of Dimes March for Babies walk in Los Angeles on Saturday, to help promote full-term pregnancies and healthy babies. The Kmart ambassador strolled alongside company reps, as the retailer was a top sponsor of the fundraising walk.

The Biggest Loser coach and mom to daughter Lukensia, 5, and son Phoenix, who turns 3 on May 3, says she uses her solo time to handle her own personal demands, like keeping doctors appointments and maintaining a regular fitness routine.

04/25/2015 at 03:25 PM ET

Chris Pratt may fight battles as an action star on the big screen, but to his son, he’s a real-life firefighting hero.

During an appearance on The Tonight Show on Friday, the Jurassic World star admitted to host Jimmy Fallon that he hasn’t been completely honest with his son Jack, 2, about his career.

Jack, whose mother is Pratt’s wife, actress Anna Faris, “loves everything trucks, cars and automobiles.” So much so, that he’s convinced his dad is a truck-driving firefighter.

Like mother, like daughter — Kim Kardashian West has passed on her selfie-taking skills to daughter North West!

“She has a computer of mine with all of these movies and music on it, and I was just using it, and I noticed the Photo Booth, there were all these selfies of her, that she doesn’t realize she’s taking, but she presses it, and it’s so funny,” the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star told reporters Friday at Variety’s Power of Women luncheon in New York. “So we do take lots of pictures together.”

And the E! star — whose stepdad, Bruce Jenner, revealed details of his transition from male to female in an exclusive interview with Diane Sawyer Friday night — has shared her penchant for self-portraits with more than just her and Kanye West‘s daughter: She was honored at the luncheon for her volunteer work at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

Scarlett Johansson’s Daughter Rose Gives Her ‘Explosive’ Joy

04/24/2015 at 11:00 PM ET

Scarlett Johansson might be onto something great.

“When I’m just hanging out with [my daughter] and we’re doing silly stuff and if I make her laugh, the feeling of joy I have is explosive … If only you could actually bottle that and carry it around,” the Avengers: Age of Ultron actress tells Parade.

In this Sunday’s issue of the magazine, Johansson, 30, opens up about being a celebrity mother to daughter Rose Dorothy, who was born in September.

“It’s hard. On the one hand, you don’t want to isolate your kids, but you don’t want to make your kids feel like freaks: There’s this fascination with famous kids, like they’re celebrity spawn,” she says. “At some point, you have to take your life back and say, ‘You know what? If I feel like picking up my dry cleaning and if someone’s going to photograph me doing it, so what?'”

She adds, “Part of being with your kids is making them feel as safe and normal as you can.”
