Cate Blanchett could spend hours looking at her new baby daughter, Edith, but there is something even more mesmerizing — watching the way her sons are doting on their little sister.

“I find it extraordinary, glimpsing them becoming a unit. And a very welcoming unit,” the Cinderella star told the Sydney Morning Herald of her sons Dashiell, 13, Roman, 10, and Ignatius, 6. “I’m very proud of them.”

The two-time Oscar winner, 45, adopted Edith earlier this month and described the baby as “more beautiful in real life” than photos snapped of them arriving at the airport in Australia showed.

Jaime King on Second Pregnancy: ‘It’s Just as Sacred’ This Time

03/27/2015 at 06:00 PM ET

Jaime King is “pretty far along” into her second pregnancy, but she isn’t slowing down anytime soon thanks to her son, James Knight.

“It’s interesting because since I have a 17-month-old, so much of my energy and time and love is extended to him,” the Hart of Dixie star, 35, told PEOPLE at Just Jared’s Throwback Thursday Party presented by Monster High at Moonlight Rollerway in Glendale, California.

“My first pregnancy was like, ‘Oh, every moment is so sacred,’ and it’s just as sacred [this time], but it’s like, I can’t forget that I have this child that’s discovering new things and saying new words every day,” said King, who recently posed topless in photos she shared on Instagram recently.

In fact, this second time around, King isn’t “worried about every tiny little thing,” she says. “I know what to expect, but yet I’m still enjoying it and it’s still deeply profound.”

Elizabeth Banks has “thank you” on the mind these days — and there’s no place she’s more grateful than right at home.

When she’s not traveling to promote her directorial debut Pitch Perfect 2 or the upcoming Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, the actress — who’s currently partnering with American Greetings’s ThankList campaign — said she loves watching her two sons Felix, 4, and Magnus Mitchell, 2, playing together.

“They are really great friends,” says Banks, 41, with pride. “I’m really close with my siblings, and my husband [Max Handelman] and I wanted to have our children close together for that reason.”

She continues, “The fact that they’re so loving toward each other and such good little friends is what makes my life.”

Goodbye burnouts, hello books. Tyrese Gibson is putting the pen to paper with a new series and a very special little co-author: his daughter, Shayla.

The Furious 7 star, 36, sure knows how to race a sports car and be an R&B superstar, but when it comes to the basics of growing up, he’s expecting his 7-year-old daughter to raise the bar.

“She just really brought me up to speed on a lot of things that she feels like her friends would love to read about, so we wrote six books together and I’m getting all of the artwork done on it now,” Gibson tells PEOPLE.

He continues, “[The books are] about bullying, faith, sharing, being courteous and nice.”

And what’s a book series without your own publishing company?

Jordana Brewster on Son Julian: ‘I’m in Awe Every Day’

03/25/2015 at 11:00 AM ET

When it comes to mothering her 18-month-old son Julian, actress Jordana Brewster has learned it’s important not to take things too seriously.

“I think often times people don’t talk about the fact that it’s really, really hard to juggle and you don’t really feel like you’re doing things 100 percent correct,” Brewster, 34, tells PEOPLE. “But I’m constantly reminding myself to cut myself some slack.”

Though the Furious 7 star doesn’t have much time to worry about that.

“What’s so wonderful about motherhood is that you’re constantly busy,” she says. “There’s so much to do and I don’t miss idle time at all.”

At Home with Britney Spears and Her Boys

03/25/2015 at 08:00 AM ET

Britney Spears opens up about raising sons, date nights with her new man, and whether she’ll marry again. Subscribe now for an inside look at the popstar’s life now, plus exclusive at-home photos, only in PEOPLE.

A hit Las Vegas show. Two happy, rambunctious boys. A hot new boyfriend who adores her. In short: life for Britney Spears has never been better.

“I’m the happiest I’ve ever been,” Spears, 33, tells PEOPLE in this week’s exclusive at-home cover story.

While her long-running Planet Hollywood residency is a big hit — the show has grossed nearly $50 million in ticket sales in a little more than a year — the superstar’s true passion is being a mother to Sean Preston, 9, and Jayden James, 8. “My kids come first in my life, bottom line,” says Spears, who shares parenting duties with her ex-husband, Kevin Federline.

As a hands-on mom, Spears has a lengthy to-do list: play dates, soccer games, gymnastics lessons and up to three hours of homework a night. “Homework is a priority,” she says. “We have a reward system that helps motivate them: if they get so many As, they get one toy a month.”
