Nick Lachey may have already taught son Camden John a lot of new things — but learning to test the limits wasn’t one of them.

With the VH1 host and wife Vanessa‘s son set to celebrate his second birthday in September, the couple are learning firsthand what the terrible twos entail.

“He knows the word ‘no’ — of course he didn’t learn it from me, but he knows the word,” Lachey told PEOPLE at friend Matt Leinart‘s 8th annual Celebrity Bowl for Charity on Thursday.

“He’s a typical 2-year-old. He sees how much he can get away with and pushes the end of the envelope, but it’s a lot of fun.”

But the proud dad admits there’s plenty of exciting times, too. “It’s a great age. He’s discovering his personality, he’s getting into everything [and] he’s talking like crazy,” he says. “They start to figure things out and push their boundaries.”

Why David and Victoria Beckham ‘Limit’ Screen Time

07/18/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

David Beckham learned discipline on the soccer field — and the father-of-four makes sure to bring that lesson home to his kids.

The soccer star, 39, shared that his three sonsBrooklyn, 15, Romeo, 11, and Cruz, 9 — do play sports-themed video games, but he and wife Victoria are strict about their screen time.

“We put a time limit on it. You have to,” Beckham told PEOPLE Thursday at the inaugural Kids’ Choice Sports Awards in Los Angeles, where he received the Legend Award. “No more than an hour. I know that sounds pretty harsh, but I want my boys to be outside playing.”

Expectant Kristen Bell ‘Completely Stumped’ on Name for Second Child

Kristen Bell has captivated children everywhere as the plucky Princess Anna in Disney’s hit animated musical Frozen.

But there’s one little girl who has yet to experience the magic: Bell’s daughter Lincoln, 15 months.

“She does not watch TV yet,” Bell, 33, tells PEOPLE. “She has no idea!”

Pediatricians recommend limiting TV viewing for children under 2, so Lincoln hasn’t see her mom or dad, Parenthood actor Dax Shepard, on the small screen. Once she’s old enough, though, Bell is happy Lincoln will learn Frozen’s brave lessons.

“I think it’s beautiful to show kids how great it can be to love through fear, to love someone even when they’re afraid to love themselves,” she says. “That’s a huge message I want to teach my kids: You’re allowed to be afraid, but you have to know why … and you have to try to love beyond that fear.”

The movie’s moral of sisterly love will take on an added significance soon: Bell is carrying her second child.

Why Scott Wolf ‘Took a Knee’ After Learning His Third Child Was on the Way

For Scott Wolf and his wife, Kelley, making their family an actual party of five by adding a third child was just a matter of time.

Up until the May arrival of daughter Lucy Marie, the couple’s family planning had been successful — despite an unexpected age gap between sons Jackson Kayse, 5, and Miller William, 20 months.

“We knew that we wanted to start and that’s when we had our first,” the actor, 46, told PEOPLE while attending the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey LEGENDS event Thursday evening in Los Angeles.

“But the second one took longer than we thought it might, so that 3½-year split was a little bit more than we originally set out [for].”

So the Perception star admits to being more than a little stunned when his wife opened up a very specific dialogue one morning.

Kids. They grow up so fast these days.

That definitely seems to be the case for Tamar Braxton-Herbert‘s son Logan. The star of WE TV’s Braxton Family Values and Tamar and Vince, says her 13-month-old is verging on a savant.

“He’s amazing,” Braxton-Herbert, 37, told PEOPLE at Gain Fling’s Music to Your Nose event during the 20th Annual Essence Music Festival on July 2.

“He’s walking, he’s talking, he’s playing the piano — he’s a little Benjamin Button, it’s crazy. I don’t know what happened, he’s not a baby anymore.”

The little mover and shaker has some grown-up swagger, too. His look “is just like Vince’s,” she says of her son and husband Vince Herbert‘s father-son style.

Kim Kardashian: Nephew Mason Wasn’t Happy About Kidchella

07/11/2014 at 02:00 PM ET

While Instagram photos of North West‘s first birthday blowout— aka “Kidchella” — show everyone having a good time, one Keeping Up with the Kardashians star apparently wasn’t too pleased with the festivities.

“When I said, ‘North’s having a birthday party at your house,’ Mason said, ‘No! I’m having a birthday party at my house! She can never have a party!” Kim Kardashian, 33, told PEOPLE of nephew Mason Disick, 4½ , Monday at Battello in Jersey City, New Jersey, where she and sisters Khloé and Kourtney teamed up with Babies “R” Us to host an Operation Shower event for expectant military moms.

Kourtney hosted the birthday bash at her Calabasas, California, home — and Mason wasn’t too keen on his cousin’s Coachella-inspired celebration.

“Before Kim even said we were having it at his house, he said, ‘I’m going to put Legos everywhere! I’m going to scare everybody!'” Mason’s mom Kourtney, 35, said.
