Kourtney Kardashian: Why I Won’t Have a Home Birth

11/19/2014 at 03:30 PM ET

Keeping up with a newborn isn’t easy, but Kourtney Kardashian is happy to take on the challenge by herself.

When the reality star welcomes her third child in December, the mom-to-be already has plans in place to take a serious time out.

“I love doing everything myself at the beginning,” Kardashian, 35, says in the December/January issue of Fit Pregnancy.

“I’m not getting a baby nurse. I take two months off and no one is allowed to bother me or talk to me about anything work-related — or maybe three months this time.”

Sarah Wright doesn’t need National Take Your Child to Work Day when she can take her baby boy to work every day!

The Marry Me actress wants her 14-month-old son, Wyatt Oliver, by her side at all times — even when she’s working.

“Everybody’s like, ‘Bring in our mascot,’ so he comes in and hangs out with us all,” Wright, 31, told PEOPLE during a press day for her new show on Monday. “It feels less like, ‘Okay, work’s over here and family’s over here.’ “

And when it comes to bedtime, Wright, who’s still nursing, finds comfort in keeping her son close. Wyatt co-sleeps with Wright and her husband, NCIS: Los Angeles star Eric Christian Olsen.

Jessica Alba: Haven Is Still ‘Super Into Her Crib’

11/17/2014 at 01:00 PM ET

If she’s being honest, Jessica Alba could probably use a break.

But, as she’s cultivated her nearly billion-dollar business, The Honest Company, the 33-year-old finds release by returning to the sound stage that made her famous in films like Sin City and The Fantastic Four.

“It’s nice to have something that just doesn’t make any sense,” the actress told PEOPLE Friday while educating families on safe sleep environments with Honest and Baby2Baby at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

“Movies don’t make sense — playing a random character that is completely make-believe … mentally balances out all of that structure that I’m [still getting] used to in business.”

Even with her many ways to keep life manageable, Alba calls total balance “impossible.” She confesses, “I feel like I’m pulled in 20 different directions [at all times].”

For the actress, who is expecting her second childa girl! — with husband Nick, one of her toughest moments came while pregnant with her now 2-year-old son Camden John.

“I felt guilty because everyone told me about this love I’d feel, and I wasn’t there yet,” she says in the December/January issue of American Baby.

“I remember asking Nick, ‘Is something wrong with me? I’ve wanted this my whole life and I’m forcing myself to have those feelings.'”

Padma Lakshmi‘s daughter Krishna is a huge Frozen fan — but you’ll never catch her dressed up as Elsa or Anna.

“She has an Elsa wig but she doesn’t have the costumes,” the Top Chef host told PEOPLE Tuesday at the opening night of Disney on Ice presents Frozen at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

“I’m not big on merch,” Lakshmi, 44, explains.”I’m just not into her being a walking billboard for anything. So I try not to buy a lot of that stuff.”

One thing she doesn’t think twice about purchasing for her 4-year-old? A hearty stack of stories. “I’m happy to buy books,” she says. “I’ll buy all the books she wants.”
