Emily Blunt: Parenting Is a ‘Fear-Based Industry’

12/18/2014 at 04:00 PM ET

Just because she’s a mom doesn’t mean she can’t work a crop top!

Emily Blunt, who gave birth to daughter Hazel in February, flaunts her tight tummy in a midriff and back-baring looks for the Dec. 18 issue of online magazine, The Edit.

In the high-fashion spread, the actress, 31, shares her laissez-faire approach to parenting.

“[Raising children] is such a fear-based industry,” Blunt says. “There used to be one book that everyone read, now there’s How to Raise a Gluten-free Baby, How to Raise a Scientific Baby … It’s insanity! So I haven’t read anything, I’m just letting her do her own thing.”

Nick Lachey is tossing aside the balls and making room for the dolls!

As the singer-songwriter prepares to welcome a new baby girl with wife, actress Vanessa Lachey, 34, he is making sure to squeeze in as much boy-on-boy time as possible with the couple’s 2-year-old son, Camden John.

“I love to wrestle with my son — that’s our thing,” Lachey tells PEOPLE. “We wrestle and tickle and just roughhouse.”

While Lachey, 41, isn’t exactly sure of what to expect once his daughter makes her big debut — Vanessa is due right after the holidays — there is one thing he is having a hard time wrapping his head around.

“I can’t imagine loving a child more than I love my son, so I guess it’s just gonna be a different kind of love,” says The Sing-Off host.

Family comes first for Drew Barrymore.

“It’s amazing. It’s the driving force behind how I live my life,” Barrymore told PEOPLE at the Refinery29 L.A. Holiday Party on Dec. 10.

Barrymore, 39, and husband Will Kopelman welcomed daughter Frankie in April. The couple’s baby girl joined older sister Olive, 2.

And with her two little ones at home, Barrymore says she’s had to prioritize her many hats.

“The acting has to be less and less because it’s too time-consuming. I love it and I don’t want to abandon it, but it can’t be at the forefront right now,” the actress explains, adding she loves her cosmetics line, Flower Beauty, “because it allows [her] to be a great mom.”

One look at Jenna Dewan-Tatum and it’s hard to fathom the fact that it has only been 18 months since she gave birth to her first child, daughter Everly.

But the 34-year-old actress insists that it is just the result of much hard work.

“I work out with Jen Johnson, this trainer that I’ve worked out with forever who does a dance-based training,” Dewan-Tatum told PEOPLE while attending the Hollywood Reporter‘s Women in Entertainment Breakfast.

“It’s awesome. It’s so hard. Everyone I brought to it says it’s the hardest workout they’ve ever done.”

But even the demanding certified trainer has nothing on Dewan-Tatum’s other exercise partner.

From Boston Legal to Entourage, Constance Zimmer is known for playing characters with an edge.

But that hard shell immediately melts away when the actress talks about her precocious daughter, Colette Zoe.

“She’s writing poetry!” Zimmer told PEOPLE of her 6½-year-old daughter while attending the Hollywood Reporter‘s Women in Entertainment Breakfast.

“I think that it’s so impressive because she’s writing poetry and she’s like, ‘Mom, it’s okay if it doesn’t rhyme. It doesn’t have to be long or short.’ “

She adds, “I said, ‘You’re right! It can be whatever you want it to be. That’s your poetry because you’re an artist!’ “

Tyler Perry has played his fair share of challenging roles — including a female — but his latest project could be his hardest yet.

The actor and director, 45, welcomed son Aman Tyler, with girlfriend Gelila Bekele in November, and the first-time father is still settling into life with his baby boy.

“It’s been two weeks today. It’s been surreal, incredible, moving,” Perry told PEOPLE at the N.Y.C. premiere of Selma, produced by his good friend and colleague, Oprah Winfrey, on Sunday.

He adds, “I see my face in him every day and it’s pretty wonderful.”

And while he’s still learning the ropes of parenthood, there’s one thing Perry is already confident he won’t do: use his award-winning directorial skills on his son.
