Milla Jovovich‘s daughter got her wish: She’s getting a baby sister!

“We’re actually having a girl so she’s so excited,” the actress, 38, told PEOPLE Wednesday at amFAR’s Fifth Annual Inspiration Gala in Los Angeles.

The news that Jovovich’s second child with Paul W.S. Anderson will be another daughter came as a big relief to the mom-to-be, who admits she was unsure the couple’s firstborn, Ever Gabo, would take well to having a brother.

“I was actually worried if we had a boy, what would happen to him,” she says with a laugh. “I was like, ‘I wonder how long he will survive in our house with that little girl pushing him and sticking her foot out and tripping him!'”

Now mom to 3-month-old daughter Myllena Mae and 3½-year-old son Phyllon Joy, model Doutzen Kroes didn’t know how she was going to handle double duty at first.

“It’s crazy. In the beginning when [Myllena] was just born I was like, ‘How am I going to do this?'” Kroes told reporters Oct. 20 at the 2014 Elle Women in Hollywood Awards in Beverly Hills.

But now the mom-of-two has finally found her rhythm and is learning to perfect the balance of her two babies.

“It was really shocking, but now after three months I’m getting into it,” she admits. “I’m okay doing it by myself too when my husband [Dutch deejay and producer Sunnery James] is traveling — so I’ve been practicing and it’s amazing. It’s the best feeling in the world.”

How does Kroes juggle the demands of a newborn and toddler by herself?

Lisa Ling is known for being a courageous journalist — and not surprisingly daughter Jett has the same strong spirit.

“She’s incredibly independent,” Ling told reporters Tuesday at the International Women’s Media Foundation‘s 25th Anniversary Courage in Journalism Awards in Beverly Hills, California. “She insists on picking out all her own clothes at [19-months-old].”

However, Ling says, her baby girl is just following in the footsteps of the females in her family.

“Her mother, both of her grandmothers, all of her aunts are fiercely independent women, so I shouldn’t have expected anything else,” she says. “I just didn’t think it would happen at one.”

It’s obvious that Olivia Wilde is, well, wild about being a mom.

“The amazing thing about becoming a parent is that you will never again be your own first priority,” the actress told reporters Tuesday at the International Women’s Media Foundation‘s 25th Anniversary Courage in Journalism Awards.

“The gift of motherhood is the selflessness that it introduces you to, and I think that’s really freeing.”

Wilde — who co-hosted the event in Beverly Hills, California — and fiancé Jason Sudeikis welcomed son Otis Alexander in April.

The busy 30-year-old actress says everything about life with her baby boy has been “amazing” since his arrival.

Proud new dad alert!

Ashton Kutcher dropped by Conan Tuesday night — and he couldn’t contain his excitement over becoming a first-time father to daughter Wyatt Isabelle.

“It’s unbelievable. It’s the greatest thing on Earth,” the beaming Two and a Half Men star, 36, said.

“We’re really privileged that we have time and can afford to take time. So we don’t have a nanny or a night nurse or any of the stuff. It’s just the two of us.”

Kutcher told host Conan O’Brien that fatherhood has already opened up a whole new perspective for him — including a newfound appreciation for his own parents. “As soon as this child was born, I immediately wanted to call my parents and just apologize because I never knew how much they loved me,” he shared.

Although the 15-month-old is Philipps’s second child, she admits Cricket’s big sister Birdie Leigh, 6, was a “totally different” baby.

Daphne Oz: Not Bouncing Back After Baby Was a Shock

10/27/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

When Daphne Oz brought her daughter home from the hospital in February, she also brought along a very unexpected addition: her baby belly.

In the November/December issue of Fitness magazine, the new mom to Philomena Bijou admits what surprised her most about motherhood was her body after baby.

“You still look six months pregnant,” Oz, 28, says. “Your body does not instantly bounce back.”

And the surprises weren’t over. When Oz — who doesn’t own a scale — went for a postpartum check up, she was in for a second shock.

“I thought I knew where I’d be when I went for my first doctor appointment a few weeks after giving birth. I’d lost only 10 pounds!” she recalls.
