Evelyn Lozada: Why I Felt ‘Responsible’ for My Miscarriage

07/20/2015 at 03:00 PM ET

Showing up to an OB/GYN appointment to find out your pregnancy has taken a turn for the worse is every expectant mother’s nightmare. In Evelyn Lozada‘s case, that nightmare came true.

On Saturday night’s episode of Livin’ Lozada, the former Basketball Wives star’s new reality show on OWN, it’s revealed that Lozada’s pregnancy earlier this year ended in miscarriage.

“When I went to my first appointment, everything looked great,” Lozada, 39, tells PEOPLE exclusively. “My progesterone levels were good.”

Lozada and her fiancé, L.A. Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford, are already parents to 15-month-old son Carl Leo, and although the pregnancy came as a surprise to the couple, Lozada says she was naturally excited.

How Jennie Garth’s New Husband Bonded with Her Daughters

07/18/2015 at 09:00 AM ET

After hitting it off on their first date last December, Jennie Garth didn’t drag her heels before introducing new beau, actor Dave Abrams, to her three daughters — Luca, 18, Lola, 12, and Fiona, 8.

“It was a big decision on my part, but I said, ‘I really like this guy and he really likes me and if we think we have a future together, I need to introduce him to my life as soon as possible,’ ” the actress, 43, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

She adds, “I threw him in 100 percent and he fit in without missing a beat.”

“I’ve always wanted kids,” says the Virginia-raised Abrams, 34, who worked hard to ease his way into a blended family and embraced the prospect of being a stepdad.

Bill Hader: My 5-Year-Old Daughter Has a Potty Mouth!

07/17/2015 at 06:45 PM ET

According to Bill Hader, his eldest daughter is a princess – with a potty mouth.

During a Thursday night appearance on The Tonight Show to promote Trainwreck, his new movie with Amy Schumer, Hader sat down with host Jimmy Fallon to tell some hilarious stories about his three daughters.

In the clip – which has some NSFW language – Hader describes how 5½-year-old Hannah is obsessed with all things princesses and loves to wander around their home dressed as an elegant, pretty princess – until she realizes they’ve run out of cereal.

“She’ll walk in and I go, ‘Oh hello, Hannah, how are you?’ and she’s like, ‘I’m going to make my breakfast,'” explained Hader, imitating his daughter’s elegant gait as she strolled around the room dressed in full princess attire. “And then she walked into our pantry and saw we had no cereal and I just hear her go ‘F—!'”

Newlyweds Josh Elliott and Liz Cho: ‘We’re Believers in the Modern Family’

07/17/2015 at 11:15 AM ET

Josh Elliott and Liz Cho have a new lease on love.

The couple’s intimate garden wedding in Montecito, California, on Saturday marked a second trip down the aisle for the journalists.

“Being that it’s the second marriage for both of us,” says the NBC Sports anchor, 44, who met Cho, 44, anchor of ABC News’ New York City affiliate, when they worked at ABC together. “It’s really a time to take stock in what matters most.”

And what matters most to them is, unequivocally, family. Elliott’s daughter Sarina, 6, and Cho’s daughter Louisa, 8, both from their previous marriages, served as maids of honor and played a special role in the couple’s ceremony.

In honor of Elliott’s mom, who died just three weeks before their wedding, “the girls carried flowers and placed them on an empty chair,” says Elliott. “Those were the tears. I loved seeing our two girls walk down the aisle.”

How exciting is it for your mom to be nominated for an Emmy? For a 2-year-old, the answer is…’Meh.’

At least that was the case for Anna Chlumsky‘s little one, Penelope. The Veep star, who just learned she was nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series Thursday morning — We knew it! — says that despite her own excitement, her toddler was super chill about the whole thing.

When she got the news, “I was in the kitchen cleaning up my daughter from lunch, just getting ready to start the beans that I was putting in the slow cooker for tonight,” Chlumsky, 34, tells PEOPLE.

But then Hollywood came a-calling. “It was funny, I was on the phone taking calls about the news and I looked over and my daughter was doing this thing where she lays down on the floor, just relaxing,” says the actress with a laugh. “Goes to show, whatever’s happening in Mommy’s world doesn’t have to interrupt her leisure time.”

Daniel Gillies and Rachael Leigh Cook Really Put a Lot of Thought into Their Son’s Name

07/16/2015 at 12:15 PM ET

Nobody can accuse Daniel Gillies and Rachael Leigh Cook of rushing into a name for their son.

The Originals actor, 39, said it took days after their son was born on April 4 to settle on the perfect name for their progeny: Theodore Vigo Sullivan Gillies.

“We just couldn’t settle on a name because it’s such an important decision,” the actor tells PEOPLE, explaining that he went with nicknames including “sweetheart,” “raisin” and even “calcified alien” in the interim.

The couple had it narrowed down to two names before birth — after compiling individual lists that included upwards of 700 names to start, then creating a sort of “Venn diagram” to see which names overlapped between them, before coming up with their top choices.

“Even after he was born we couldn’t determine whether or not he was Theodore or Vigo, because he was just so beat up from [being born],” he says. “Some might say he should be Vigo because of Viggo Mortensen, kind of battle-scarred. But there was something so adorable about him.”
