Drew Barrymore‘s daughters are meeting milestones every single day, but 2-year-old Olive‘s most recent memorable moment might be one of her cutest yet.

“[She said] her first, ‘Oy vey.’ That made me happy, ” the actress told PEOPLE at The Daily Front Row’s inaugural Fashion Los Angeles Awards on Thursday.

According to the founder of Flower cosmetics, her toddler’s language skills are equally impressive. “My daughter counted to three in Hebrew today,” Barrymore, 39, shares. “She was learning [Hebrew] this morning so I was proud of her.”

As for her strong bond with 9-month-old Frankie? Well, Olive excels at being a big sister, too.

“She’s really sweet,” says Barrymore. “Whenever Frankie cries, she always goes, ‘Don’t worry, Frankie. It’s okay.’ That’s very sweet.”

Scott Foley has found his two greatest loves in life — and they both require early wakeup calls.

“At this stage of my life, what makes me happy is my passion,” the Scandal star says in the February issue of Live Happy. “That sounds so generic and broad, but I love to act, I love to tell stories and that is my passion.”

Foley’s other focus: his family of five. The actor and his wife Marika Dominczyk are parents to daughter Malina, 5, and sons Keller, 2½, and Konrad, 10 weeks.

“I love my family — my family makes me happier than anything else. I’m passionate about spending time with them, watching them grow and making them laugh,” he explains. “Those are the two passions in my life: family and work.”

For Foley, 42, the pieces all began to fall into place a decade ago.

Gwen Stefani‘s children have learned a lot from their fashionable mama — including how to put together the perfect everyday ensemble.

The blonde bombshell — who most recently won the Style Icon award at the PEOPLE Magazine Awards last month — has herself to thank for the creative outfits that her older boys, Kingston, 8½, and Zuma, 6, pull out of their closets.

“The first one loves [to style himself] and the second one is really happy to wear sports outfits,” Stefani, 45, told PEOPLE Tuesday afternoon at SoHo House West Hollywood, where she announced that her MasterCard Priceless Surprises concert will take place on Feb. 7 at the Orpheum in Los Angeles.

And as most young kids go through their minute-long obsessions, Stefani was particularly upset to see one of Zuma’s favorite alter-egos go.

“[Zuma] used to be really into costumes, but he’s out of that now, which is sad because we don’t have a superhero in the house anymore,” Stefani says.

Oh, to be Ryan Gosling‘s baby girl.

Since welcoming daughter Esmeralda Amada with longtime love Eva Mendes in September, the actor’s been busy flying back and forth between Los Angeles and Atlanta to shoot his upcoming film, The Nice Guys.

But that doesn’t mean the star hasn’t squeezed in as much quality time as possible with his family. “He’s been wanting to be a father for a long time,” a Gosling insider tells PEOPLE. “He’s cherishing every minute.”

Raising their daughter without a nanny, the new parents are “so tired, but so in love,” says a Mendes pal. “[The baby] is smiling and cooing and loves when Ryan sings to her.”

While Gosling, 34, and Mendes, 40, have no plans to wed any time soon, that doesn’t mean there’s trouble in paradise for the private pair, who stepped out for a rare date night on Saturday.

Why Molly Sims Is ‘Not Opposed’ to a Natural Birth After Previous C-Section

01/21/2015 at 01:30 PM ET

Molly Sims always knew she would be a mother, a suspicion confirmed during her frequent visits to psychics during her younger years.

But what she didn’t know was that her dreams of having a baby would come much later in life.

“I would have been a good mom earlier, but I didn’t find my prince until I was older,” The Everyday Supermodel author says in the February issue of Jeff Lipsky for Fit Pregnancy.

“I don’t regret starting later — everything I’ve wanted to do, I’ve done. I lived in Europe for six years, waitressed, worked at a book company and in a law office.”

Although she wouldn’t change the timeline of her life, Sims — who is mom to 2½-year-old son Brooks Alan and expecting her second child with husband Scott Stuber — admits her age has played a factor in her pregnancies. After discovering the couple would be welcoming another babya girl due in March — Sims decided to keep the news a secret until it was safe to share.

“I’m 41, so I had an ultrasound and blood tests to make sure everything was okay,” she explains. “We waited until we got the results at 14 weeks to tell anyone, but my in-laws came to visit early on and they said I looked green!”

Fergie: How Josh Duhamel and I Make Our Marriage Work

01/20/2015 at 01:00 PM ET

When Josh Duhamel got the chance to meet his future wife Fergie in 2004,  it was truly a dream come true.

The meeting, Fergie says in the February issue of Allure, came shortly after Duhamel had recalled his vivid thoughts — featuring the “My Humps” singer — to a reporter.

“Yeah, yeah, exactly — he just wanted to get in my pants,” the songstress, 39, jokes of their initial encounter, which eventually became the start to their now 10-year relationship.

“We just grew. And we grew into realizing that we wanted the same things in life. We wanted the same path,” explains Fergie. “We both come from Catholic families.”

Christina Milian Turned Up Daughter Violet

Family is at the center of E!‘s new series Christina Milian Turned Up.

The “docu-soap” follows Christina Milian, 33, as she lives and works with three generations of her family: mother/manager Carmen, sisters Danielle and Liz, and her “crazy, funny, really sarcastic” daughter, Violet Madison, 5 next month.

In an exclusive clip from Sunday’s premiere, Milian dotes on her little “ball of sunshine” and details how motherhood transformed her world.

“The second that she was born, it was, like, instantly I became a child again,” Milian says of Violet.

“It’s like I see the world with new eyes: Not only is this my life to live, this is for my daughter,” she continues. “If you really go into it with the mentality that you can do it and this has all been placed into your life for a reason at this time, then, hey, you gotta go with it.”
