Pink: My Daughter Is ‘Way Cooler than I Am’

10/16/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

Despite her rebel rock star image, Pink is a real softie when it comes to her daughter Willow Sage, who, the singer says, is a primary inspiration in her life.

“Seeing the world through a 3-year-old little girl’s … eyes is like being that age again,” Pink tells ET Canada.

“It’s like starting over in a way – really healing and wondrous, and you’re reminded constantly how sarcastic and how presumptuous you can be, and how hardened life has made you … and how they take things so literally and beautifully that you have to watch how you see things, so that you don’t alter the way they see things, because that innocence is so worth protecting. That’s a really long-winded answer for, ‘She’s way cooler than I am.'”

“She’s magical. Little kids are magical,” the You+Me singer, 35, continued. “And then you go from spending an hour on the floor with this magical, pure little love … and you turn on the news and you look at what’s going on, and the separation between that is just so mindboggling. I wish the world could be more like her. Why are we teaching them? We don’t have it right. At all.”

Melissa Rycroft‘s days on the dance floor are finally paying off.

Now mom to 3½-year-old daughter Ava Grace and 5-month-old son Beckett Thomas, the former Dancing with the Stars champ is constantly on her feet.

“I used to have all of this free time even with my one child, I have one more and I don’t sit down anymore, so it’s crazy,” Rycroft, 31, told PEOPLE before she headed off to host the Smirnoff Ice “Ladies with Game” Tailgate Party on Oct. 2.

“On one hand, I’m used to the fact that it takes me 30 minutes to get out of the house. I’ve got that down, and I know that if I want to just up and get my nails done, I can’t.”

While the working mom first learned that parenting lesson after she welcomed Ava in 2011, juggling two children has its new set of challenges.

Josh Duhamel‘s little boy isn’t so little anymore.

“He’s already swimming around in the pool, and I was like, ‘What the hell happened to my baby?’ He’s walking all over the place, talking. He’s a toddler now!” the actor tells PEOPLE of 13-month-old Axl Jack.

“It happens quick. Next thing you know, they’re going off to college. So that’s one thing I’ve really taken to heart, trying to be there as much as I can.”

Axl is growing into his own musical tastes. He listens to the new songs mom Fergie is recording and has repped Wu Tang Clan on Instagram. But Duhamel, 41, says his son is really into Bob Marley: His parents read him the children’s picture book Every Little Thing by Marley’s daughter, Cedella, and sing along to the lyrics.

“He loves that book,” the You’re Not You star says. “It’s the one book we can get him to sit down and actually listen to.”

Dierks Bentley: I Became a Man When I Met My Wife (and Had Kids)

Dierks Bentley didn’t know what he was thinking before he met his wife.

In a recent interview with Esquire, the country crooner says it wasn’t until Cassidy entered his life that he officially became a man.

“Women are very wise, knowingly and unknowingly. They have a lot more going on upstairs and in their soul than we do,” Bentley, 38, says.

“My wife, I always felt, has been very wise and has dragged me along, getting me to this spot of manhood.”

Although Cassidy started Bentley off on the journey, it took hitting three major markers in the road — the births of their children, Knox, 1 on Thursday, Jordan Catherine, 3½, and Evalyn Day, 6 — for him to reach his final destination.

Jennifer Love Hewitt: My Husband ‘Should Be a Male Doula’

Jennifer Love Hewitt knows the secret to a successful labor: keeping her husband happy!

During a Monday night appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the new mom joked that she had a great support system when she delivered her daughter Autumn James — all thanks to her stash of snacks.

“This is the thing, too, if you are in labor, feed your husband and they are wonderful. He can’t be hungry — you need them!” the Criminal Minds star, 35, explains.

But there was a silver lining to taking care of Brian Hallisay.

“If he passed out or something bad happened out of being hangry, then I don’t get what I need, which is my rock,” she says. “I had pudding for him and snack bars … it was great!”

Holly Madison: Having a Baby Changed My Views on Partying

09/29/2014 at 06:00 PM ET

Holly Madison‘s daughter Rainbow Aurora‘s name is fit for a princess — and her nursery is, too!

The former Girls Next Door star has created magical rooms for her daughter — one at their Las Vegas home and a second at the family’s Los Angeles abode — that channel Madison’s love for all things Disney.

While her baby girl’s California sleep space is adorned with pretty pinks and princess touches, including the framed photographs around the room, it’s Madison’s Nevada nursery where she went all out with an Alice in Wonderland theme.

“I gave it a chess board tile floor and painted a mural of the talking flowers on the wall,” Madison says in the fall issue of Mini magazine. “The curtain and crib set are blue and white, like Alice’s dress, and the artwork on the walls is Alice-inspired. We even have the talking doorknobs with the face on her doors.”

Ali Larter: Why a Second Pregnancy Is a ‘Little Less Charming’

As the spokeswoman for Dole’s new nutritious Garden Soup, Ali Larter is literally the poster child for healthy eating — but when it comes to pregnancy cravings, she’s willing to break a few rules.

“I try to be healthy. I’ll eat green, but a salad is not a meal for me when I’m pregnant,” the Legends star, 38, tells PEOPLE.

Now that she’s expecting her second child this winter, Larter has been rounding out her meals by catering to a few of her cravings.

“I have allowed myself to have some pasta and all I really want is bread slathered in cheese,” the mom-to-be admits, adding pregnancy is “the one time” she eases up on her eating plan.

But besides the change in diet, the actress — who has yet to find out the sex of her baby on the way — says it’s been a completely different experience than it was when she was expecting her son, 3½-year-old Theodore Hayes.
