Kevin Costner: My Home Is ‘Frozen Obsessed’

He may be an Oscar-winning actor and director, but like most parents, Kevin Costner still plays “Let it Go” on repeat.

“My little girl [Grace Avery, 4½,] dresses up every day,” he says. “It’s the Frozen household. Everybody has to freeze when she says so. The boys [Hayes Logan, 6 next month, and Cayden Wyatt, 7½,] are just so sick of it!”

But for Costner, married to Christine since 2004, those family moments are what make life so fulfilling. “It’s really fun to see [all my kids] together,” says the dad of seven, who also has four grown children.

“It’s been a really good life and my children are living proof.”

Now starring in Black or White as a widowed grandfather fighting for custody of his biracial granddaughter, Costner, 60, is also relishing this time in his career — one that hasn’t been without a few bumps.

Sarah Drew Introduces Daughter Hannah Mali Rose; Opens Up About Time in the NICU

01/28/2015 at 12:15 PM ET

When Sarah Drew began having contractions more than three weeks before her due date, the actress couldn’t believe she was going into labor.

“I was in total denial that it was happening,” the Grey’s Anatomy star, who had been due Dec. 27, tells PEOPLE in its latest issue. “All of the baby stuff was in boxes in the basement and there was nothing prepared.”

But after giving birth to Hannah Mali Rose on Dec. 3, Drew — who’s also mom to son Micah Emmanuel, 3, with husband Peter Lanfer — was “beside herself” when the newborn faced serious health complications. As a result, the couple’s baby girl had to spend 11 days in the neonatal intensive care unit.

“Her lungs were not totally ready to be outside of the womb [which led to] an infection, plus she had issues with blood sugar because I had gestational diabetes,” the actress explains. “It’s the worst thing in the world because you go into the hospital and you expect to leave with your baby. We didn’t know how long she would have to be there.”

01/27/2015 at 02:00 PM ET

How does Drew Barrymore know she’s a great mom?

The actress, who appears on the cover of More magazine’s February issue, credits her difficult childhood with teaching her to be a better mother.

“I didn’t really have parents, you know?” Barrymore, 39, says. “And therefore the kind of parent I will be is a good, present parent.”

She adds: “In a way, maybe that was a detriment to my youth, but it’ll be the biggest asset to my adulthood.”

Jaime King is confident that mother knows best.

The Hart of Dixie star, who welcomed her first child, son James Knight, in 2013, tells The New Potato that motherhood is full of difficult decisions. But those tough choices are only intensified when outsiders step in to question another person’s parenting process.

“There is so much mommy judging and so many rules and regulations. ‘You have to breastfeed‘ or ‘If you formula feed, you’re bad,’ ” she says. “There are so many labels now of what you should or shouldn’t do and I think that is really harmful to mothers.”

Noting that life before a baby is “hard enough,” the actress believes women should realize they’re all facing the same struggles. “Birthing a child and caring for a child is already difficult in itself,” King, 35, explains.

01/25/2015 at 02:00 PM ET

Ask Jennifer Lopez what role she most cherishes and the answer’s a no-brainer: being a mom.

“Kids make you believe in all kinds of things, like how anything is possible,” The Boy Next Door star – and mother to 6-year-old twinsMax and Emme — tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story.

Which is why she’d be thrilled to add to her brood, even at age 45. “I don’t know if it’s in the cards for me because of my age, but I would love to have another baby, to be blessed one more time,” says Lopez, who is currently single.

It’s no surprise Ryan Reynolds is more than willing to share baby duties with wife Blake Lively, but we weren’t expecting him to be so involved.

“I gotta jump in and do all those sorts of things,” Reynolds, 38, told PEOPLE Saturday at the party for his new film, Mississippi Grind, at the Chase Sapphire on Main during the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

He jokes, “I mean, I’ve even tried breastfeeding.”

So how did that go for all involved?

“It’s frustrating for the baby and frankly disturbing for me … not well is the answer,” quips the actor, who plays a charismatic nomad in the movie.

In all seriousness, since welcoming a daughter with Lively, 27, in December, life at home has been “great.”
