John Legend‘s Christmas list this year has all to do with the baby he is expecting with wife Chrissy Teigen.

“I hope our child will be kind and smart and awesome in every way,” Legend tells PEOPLE. “Hopefully we’ll do the best job we can.”

That last hope is particularly important for Legend, who wrote and recorded the holiday single “Under the Stars” exclusively for the Stella Artois Give Beautifully campaign.

“It is pretty exciting that I’ll have a little child running around that is the product of the love that Chrissy and I have for each other,” Legend says of himself and his wife, who announced her pregnancy on her Instagram account in October.

11/30/2015 at 03:30 PM ET

Salma Hayek‘s daughter Valentina certainly has her mother’s good heart.

The 8-year-old is growing out her long brown locks in order to donate her hair to make wigs for sick children, according to the Some Kind of Beautiful actress.

Hayek, who shares Valentina with husband François-Henri Pinault, posted a photo of her daughter from behind to Instagram on Sunday. The little girl’s curly hair already reaches down to just below her waist.

“My daughter Valentina is growing her beautiful mane so she can cut it and donate it to make a wig for children with cancer,” Hayek, 49, wrote. “Now that is the spirit of Christmas.”

Apparently Turkey Tom gives the sweetest tackles.

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady showed off a more lighthearted side Thursday, when the Super Bowl winner shared a video of himself cutely scaring his kids with wife Gisele Bündchen as he jumps out of a pile of leaves wearing a costume.

Dressed warmly in coats and hats, son Benjamin Rein, 5½, and daughter Vivian Lake, 2½, are happily scampering through the pile when a giant turkey, a.k.a. Dad, emerges from the pile and begins chasing them around.

Kimberly Caldwell on New Motherhood: ‘It’s the Greatest Challenge’

11/25/2015 at 07:15 PM ET

Kimberly Caldwell is keeping it real.

While the new mom and her soccer player husband Jordan Harvey are soaking up all the joys of parenthood, the American Idol alum also isn’t afraid to tell it how it is.

“I feel like everybody sugarcoats it because they don’t want to sound ungrateful,” the singer, 33, tells PEOPLE. “We just couldn’t be happier, but at the same time, it really is a challenge. But it’s the greatest challenge and we’re up for it!”

In the last few weeks, the couple’s daughter Harlow Monroe has already gained over a pound (“We’re so proud!” says Caldwell) and attended her first soccer game (“She was the best baby ever,” she adds).

In a refreshingly candid chat with PEOPLE, Caldwell opens up about her “wild” labor and delivery, choosing their baby girl’s unique name and growing closer with her husband.

Jamie Foxx in the house!”

On Wednesday’s episode of the Ellen DeGeneres Show, the 47-year-old actor sits down with the host and talks about his growing daughters — one of which, he says, “wants it all.”

Foxx tells Ellen DeGeneres his 7-year-old daughter, Annalise, once insisted on driving with him to the Soho House in West Hollywood in a Rolls-Royce, with the top back while wearing a pair of sunglasses.

“I said, ‘Listen, I have to put the top up,’ ” Fox tells DeGeneres, 57. “So she almost starts crying like, ‘They’re not gonna be able to see me, Dad.’ ”

11/24/2015 at 08:30 PM ET

Tarek El Moussa might split parenting duties with his wife Christina, but there’s one job that the HGTV star just can’t handle: changing diapers.

But the mom of two — the couple are parents to 3-month-old son Brayden James and daughter Taylor Reese, 5 — admits steering clear of diaper duty isn’t anything new for him.

“He never changed one of Tay’s diapers and I think he has changed one of Brayden’s,” Christina jokes. “He has a bad gag reflex.”
