Although Pete Wentz‘s new baby boy is too young to understand his father’s occupation, the Fall Out Boy bassist’s oldest son, Bronx, knows what his dad does — and he’s not impressed.

“[He] comes to our shows, but it’s the equivalent to me going to my dad’s job when I was a kid. At the end of the day, it’s Dad’s job,” Wentz told PEOPLE at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas on Friday.

“All I am to him is his dad. When he sees people want to take a picture with me, he thinks it’s hilarious.”

In fact, adds Wentz, his 5½-year-old is completely “uninterested” in his dad’s rock star status.

Georgina Bloomberg: Why I Want to Teach My Son How to Lose

As an internationally renowned equestrian, Georgina Bloomberg is well-versed in winning. But when it comes time for her son Jasper to learn how to ride and compete, she has something else in mind entirely.

“I like the idea of teaching kids how to lose. That’s a really important lesson in life,” Bloomberg, who won Thursday’s grand prix at the Central Park Horse Show Presented by Rolex, tells PEOPLE.

“I don’t like the idea of doing leadline where everyone gets a blue ribbon,” she says of the horse show class for the littlest riders. “I think it’s unrealistic for kids and teaches the wrong lesson.”

So when Jasper makes the move from rocking horse to a real pony, he’ll ride in the judged classes where the riders are placed, says Bloomberg, 31. “My friends’s kids who got a blue ribbon every time are now starting to compete in other classes where that doesn’t happen and they struggle with not winning every class.”

“It’s really nice to teach kids that, listen, you’re not going to win every time out. And that’s OK.”

Time changes everything — just ask Lady Antebellum‘s Hillary Scott.

The band recently wrapped their Take Me Downtown tour and while they’ve sorted out the bus situation, the first-time mom admits she’s still adjusting to taking 13-month-old daughter Eisele Kaye out on the road.

“It’s a lot to juggle,” Scott, 28, tells PEOPLE. “When I’m on the road and touring, my whole day revolves around when I need to get ready, so by a certain time I need to be taking a shower and if I’m 10 minutes late, then it’s going to make the rest of the day shift.”

Adds the singer, “It can get stressful.”

Who Does Shannon Miller Think of ‘Every Time I Look at My Daughter’?

Olympic gold medal-winning gymnast Shannon Miller calls her 15-month-old daughter Sterling her “miracle baby.”

Miller was diagnosed with a rare form of ovarian cancer (her older child, son Rocco, was 1 at the time) and lost her left ovary and fallopian tube. But before Sterling was even a thought, the Olympian was going through chemo and speaking publicly about her diagnosis when a stranger changed her life.

“This woman came up to me and took my hand, right before I went on the podium, and said, ‘I just want you to know, I had the exact same tumor. That was 10 years ago. I have two beautiful children. And you’re going to make it,'” an emotional Miller told PEOPLE at the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network‘s Cancer Lobby Day in Washington, D.C., Thursday.

For Hilary Duff, it’s all about him: her 2½-year-old son Luca Cruz.

But while the “All About You” singer is back to shining in the spotlight with her new single, Duff admits her toddler is showing signs he’ll have a future on the field.

“I don’t know if he’s so musically inclined. He’s a little more like his dad like that,” Duff, 26, told PEOPLE in New York Monday, when Trident and Oral Health America celebrated Smiles Across America‘s 10-year anniversary.

She adds of her son with Mike Comrie, “He plays soccer. Can you believe I’m a soccer mom?!”

But in between kicking a ball around, Luca loves listening to music — and he’s already Duff’s biggest fan.

Daphne Oz: Why Breastfeeding Is a ‘Luxury’

09/15/2014 at 06:00 PM ET

Chew on this: Daphne Oz is a believer in love at first sight.

From the moment the TV host and her husband John Jovanovic welcomed their first child, Philomena Bijou, in February, the new mom was completely head over heels for her daughter.

“For me, it was like getting a first-hand glimpse of what love at first sight is really like,” Oz says in an interview with Bravado Designs.

“It’s something that I think no one can really explain to you until you have a baby of your own and you feel that immense love for someone you don’t even know.”

Strengthening the bond between Oz and her now 6-month-old was her choice to breastfeed, a decision the new mom says gives her the “peace of mind of knowing that it is the best first choice of food for your baby.”
