Kelly Rowland: I Take Being a Mother ‘One Day at a Time’

04/26/2016 at 12:15 PM ET

There’s one common virtue all good parents possess — and it’s a virtue Kelly Rowland once feared she was missing.

“When I found out that I was going to be a mother, I was the mother who didn’t know that I had patience,” she told PEOPLE while attending the Safe Kids Day 2016 event in Culver City, California, on Sunday. “I was really scared about being a mother, just simply because I didn’t think I had enough.”

But fortunately for Rowland, her trepidation about her shortcomings practically melted when she gave birth to son Titan Jewell.

“When my son was born, I was like, ‘Oh my God, I don’t know where this patience came from!’ ” she says with a laugh. “I was really happy, and that made me feel better about being a mom.”

Ivanka Trump on Life with Three Kids: ‘I’m Too Busy to Worry’

04/25/2016 at 11:15 PM ET

You think you’ve had a busy month? Ivanka Trump has given birth, attended a rally for her father Donald, and hosted the grand opening of the Spa and Suites at Trump National Doral Resort — all in less than 30 days.

The new mother to Theodore James, born March 27th, spoke with PEOPLE in Miami as she presented the last piece of the $250-million, three-year Doral project.

Trump said of introducing baby Theodore to her other children, “My daughter is very independent, plus she’s incredibly confident of her place within the home. She is the boss of her brother — there was no ambiguity in her mind that Theodore would answer to her.”

She adds of daughter Arabella, 4½, “So for her I was not too worried about the transition.”

Drew Barrymore on Being ‘So Happy Now’: I Have a ‘Good Thing in My Life with My Kids’

04/25/2016 at 11:55 AM ET

Only weeks after announcing her divorce from husband Will Kopelman, Drew Barrymore can still draw upon her sense of family to lift her up.

All of her life lessons, she says, can be applied to her most important role: motherhood.

“I just feel like my whole life was collecting things in a butterfly net of experience,” she told reporters Sunday while attending Safe Kids Day 2016 at Smashbox Studios. “What to do, what not to do, how to live, how not to live, how to be free, happy. Just gaining every bit of wisdom that I could, all for that because I cannot remember life before kids. It seems like a dream.”

A dream that she is happily living each day with daughters Frankie, 2, and Olive, 3, and one that is buoyed by the voices of other women that share her experience.

“I was saying this quote that a women said at a conference that I was at the other day,” the actress tells PEOPLE. “She said, ‘I can’t wait to go to work, and I can’t wait to get home.’ And I thought, that sums up a great womanhood to me.”

‘Car Guy’ Jerry Seinfeld ‘Very Proud’ of Daughter Sascha Learning to Drive Stick

04/22/2016 at 07:30 PM ET

Jerry Seinfeld is famous for his observant brand of humor and it turns out, all of those years contemplating human behavior might have helped prepare him for his most important and longest running role: dad. His most recent dad achievement? Hint: it has to do with cars.

“I taught my daughter to drive a stick,” the Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee host told PEOPLE at the 2nd Annual Fatherhood Lunch to benefit GOOD+ Foundation at The Palm in Beverly Hills.

Even though the comedian is famous for his extensive car collection, daughter Sascha, 15, didn’t learn on one of her dad’s extravagant vehicles.

She learned on “an old beat up Land Rover with a stick shift,” Seinfeld says. “I was very proud of her. Because I’m a car guy, I want my daughter to drive a stick.”

Susan Sarandon Calls Birth a ‘Crazy, Sci-Fi Adventure,’ Weighs In on Breastfeeding

04/21/2016 at 09:30 PM ET

Susan Sarandon has something to add to the sometimes-heated debate surrounding breastfeeding.

“Nursing can be really, really challenging,” Sarandon, 69, said during a Q&A after a MOMS-hosted special screening of her new film The Meddler, in which she plays Rose Byrne‘s overbearing mother.

“I was very lucky in terms of nursing, but every baby doesn’t respond the same way, and then you get mastitis and it hurts if you choose to nurse — not everybody does. And then the relationship with the pump really becomes a nightmare.”

04/21/2016 at 08:30 PM ET

Mike Myers first became a father back in 2011 when his wife Kelly Tisdale gave birth to son Spike, now 4½ — and everything changed.

“What can I say that’s profound that hasn’t been said a million times?” Myers told PEOPLE at the Food Bank For New York City Annual Can-Do Awards Dinner at Cipriani Wall Street on Wednesday.

“When news of my wife Kelly being pregnant got out, I got a call from Adam Sandler, who lives in L.A.,” Myers, 52, said. “I live in New York, and you end up never seeing the people that you used to see all the time. He called me up and he said, ‘You’re going to love fatherhood.'”
