Proud new dad alert!

Ashton Kutcher dropped by Conan Tuesday night — and he couldn’t contain his excitement over becoming a first-time father to daughter Wyatt Isabelle.

“It’s unbelievable. It’s the greatest thing on Earth,” the beaming Two and a Half Men star, 36, said.

“We’re really privileged that we have time and can afford to take time. So we don’t have a nanny or a night nurse or any of the stuff. It’s just the two of us.”

Kutcher told host Conan O’Brien that fatherhood has already opened up a whole new perspective for him — including a newfound appreciation for his own parents. “As soon as this child was born, I immediately wanted to call my parents and just apologize because I never knew how much they loved me,” he shared.

Busy Philipps‘s daughter Cricket Pearl is really keeping her mama hopping!

While attending Share Our Strength No Kid Hungry‘s fundraising dinner in Beverly Hills on Saturday, the actress told PEOPLE that her youngest daughter with husband Marc Silverstein is following in her very active footsteps.

“Cricket’s full on running. She’s a wild woman!” Philipps, 35, says.

“I never understood, my mom just keeps laughing and says that now I’m getting what I deserve because I was such a crazy baby.”

Although the 15-month-old is Philipps’s second child, she admits Cricket’s big sister Birdie Leigh, 6, was a “totally different” baby.

Daphne Oz: Not Bouncing Back After Baby Was a Shock

10/27/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

When Daphne Oz brought her daughter home from the hospital in February, she also brought along a very unexpected addition: her baby belly.

In the November/December issue of Fitness magazine, the new mom to Philomena Bijou admits what surprised her most about motherhood was her body after baby.

“You still look six months pregnant,” Oz, 28, says. “Your body does not instantly bounce back.”

And the surprises weren’t over. When Oz — who doesn’t own a scale — went for a postpartum check up, she was in for a second shock.

“I thought I knew where I’d be when I went for my first doctor appointment a few weeks after giving birth. I’d lost only 10 pounds!” she recalls.

Just like her daddy, 15-month-old North West is never far away from music.

But forget the saccharine toddler tunes. Kim Kardashian tells PEOPLE that North’s playlist is fairly eclectic — and it’s always on.

“I put on these lullabies for her. I put on pop music, Kanye‘s music. I have a whole iPod with everything all set up for her,” Kardashian says.

“Every day, from when we wake up, there’s music on. When we’re playing, when we go on our walk, every day there’s music on. I have a little Beats speaker, so we listen to music loud on our walks.”

Sometimes, North will even get the live version of her daddy’s songs at night.

10/24/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

Ever since he became a father, Ty Murray has been telling PEOPLE that he doesn’t want son Kase Townes to one day follow in his dangerous footsteps as a professional bull rider.

Now 3 years old, Kase appears to have his own opinion on the matter — at least when it comes to the attire involved.

“This morning, Kase’s mom put a pair of sweatpants and a t-shirt on him and he said to me, ‘Daddy, let’s get all cowboy’d up,’ ” Murray tells PEOPLE with a laugh.

“I don’t know where he comes up with this stuff! I’ve never pushed being a cowboy at all. I don’t even know where he came up with that word.”

Molly Sims Says She Would ‘Love’ to Have a Daughter

10/23/2014 at 06:00 PM ET

It isn’t always easy finding the perfect fit when dressing for two.

Although Molly Sims announced her second pregnancy in September, the reality of her growing belly only recently set in.

“This week was the week that you know you’re pregnant because you can hardly fit into regular clothes — the belly busters are just not quite working,” Sims joked with reporters at the 2014 Elle Women in Hollywood Awards in Beverly Hills Monday night.

“It’s a little nerve-wracking. Every time you think, ‘Oh God,’ ” says Sims about dressing her burgeoning bump. “I tried on this skirt this afternoon [and] I couldn’t get it on. I’m like, there’s no way I just had a fitting again.”

Luckily for Sims, it was a quick fashion fix. “For some reason, I had it on wrong … Thank God,” she says of her black Lela Rose skirt.
