Ashton Kutcher has been in the business for almost 20 years. Since then, he has dabbled in multiple avenues, including modeling, television and film.

“I’m doing everything I can to keep her away from you guys, man!” he jokes, clarifying, “As long as it’s not a choice that she’s making, it’s my job to protect her from all of this nonsense.”

Big Bang Baby! Simon Helberg Talks How Being a Dad in Real Life Will Help Him Play One on TV

08/29/2016 at 11:45 AM ET

Simon Helberg is best known for his role as socially inept aerospace engineer Howard Wolowitz on the hit CBS comedy The Big Bang Theory — a character who will soon be a father for the first time on the show’s upcoming 10th season.

But in real life, the 35-year-old actor has two children of his own with wife Jocelyn Towne: son Wilder, 2, and daughter Adeline, 4. And when asked how his experiences in fatherhood might help him play one on TV, he admits a lot of that is in the writers’ hands — but that he’ll be able to relate to his character in one big way.

“[Howard is] gonna need so much channeling,” Helberg, who currently appears in the new dramedy biopic Florence Foster Jenkins alongside Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant, tells PEOPLE. “You bring everything you have in your arsenal to every character, so it’s helpful to have experience as a dad.

“I’m sure the writers are gonna make him a pretty clumsy, inept father, which … sometimes it starts that way, so that I can also relate to,” he adds. “There’s a nice learning curve, so hopefully he’ll grow up a bit.”

John Legend is using his platform to do good — so daughter Luna can grow up in a better world.

The “Start” singer tells PEOPLE in New York City Saturday — ahead of the launch of his Belvedere(RED) campaign — that he’s “always wanted to give back but [being a father] just gives you even more reason to want the world to be a better place because you want the world to be better for your kids than it was for you.”

He continues, “I think it’s been great for me but if we can make it even better for Luna that’d be great.”

When it comes to parenting tasks, Jeremiah Brent admits that things just took a natural course for himself and husband Nate Berkus.

“It’s so funny because as a parent you kind of just fall into your roles,” the designer, 31, told The Awesome News about the couple’s experiences with 17-month-old daughter Poppy. “Nate loves to change a diaper more than anybody should because he knows he’s instantly solved something.

“I’m the one that’s up all night and in the morning because I need barely any sleep,” adds Brent, who will star with Berkus, 44, in their first-ever home-design show this fall on TLC called Married to Design: Nate & Jeremiah. “I’m much more emotional and sensitive, Nate’s goofy.”

“You know what huffing is, right? It’s not a pleasant thing — people who huff chemicals?” the former 30 Rock star, 58, asked Jimmy Fallon.

“Now I huff my son. I take his body and I go … ” he says, inhaling loudly.

Jokes Baldwin, who is expecting another son with wife Hilaria “any day now,” “And the bad part is — like when you huff chemicals — then I black out on the sidewalk. I pass out.”
