“I feel like life just started,” Guthrie, 42, speaking by phone, told her Today colleagues on the air Friday morning. Her voice breaking with emotion as she shared her excitement, she also took viewer questions about her Wednesday morning delivery.

Kristin Cavallari: How Having Children Changed My Family Plan

08/14/2014 at 05:00 PM ET

When it comes to her growing family, baby number two is twice as nice for Kristin Cavallari.

“It’s a lot easier in the sense that you know what to do and expect, so you have a lot more confidence,” the Fabulist host, 27, tells Michigan Avenue magazine.

Even deciding on a name for now 3-month-old Jaxon Wyatt was a breeze. Cavallari admits she and husband Jay Cutler skipped the entire name game with their second son after seeing his moniker in a magazine when she was pregnant with her firstborn, 2-year-old Camden Jack.

“We had already picked out a name, so we just held onto it,” she says. “We decided if we had another boy, that’s what we would name him.”

Daphne Oz: Motherhood Is ‘So Much Harder Than I Imagined’

08/12/2014 at 03:45 PM ET

New mom Daphne Oz has already learned a valuable lesson in parenting: practice does not make perfect.

“It is so much harder than I imagined! You just care so much, and want everything to be perfect,” the TV host, 28, says in the latest issue of The Bump.

“Even though you know it never can be, you keep trying your best. It’s never enough!”

Oz, who welcomed daughter Philomena Bijou in February, admits all the books in the world couldn’t completely prepare her for life with her baby girl.

“I think the biggest change and challenge for me was coming to terms with the fact that being a good mom is not something you can read up on or learn from a distance,” she says. “You have to jump in headfirst and get your hands dirty.”

Dean Cain: Being a Working Single Dad Is ‘Difficult’

08/09/2014 at 12:30 PM ET

Dean Cain‘s used to being called Superdad.

The actor, 48, who rose to fame in the 90s hit Lois & Clark, says that raising 14-year-old son Christopher on his own has been his greatest, and toughest role yet.

“He’s my favorite person on the whole planet,” Cain tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. The Hit the Floor star and son Christopher share a special bond. Following a nasty custody battle with ex Samantha Torres in 2003, Cain assumed sole custody of Christopher in 2011.

“Stability-wise this is what’s best for him,” says Cain. Though he says it can be “difficult” shuffling from work on set to PTA meetings and field trips, “I’ve learned to make the decisions that put him first.”

David Arquette is relishing being a father for the second time.

The actor and club owner became a dad again when he and fiancée Christina McLarty welcomed son Charlie West three months ago, and he’s taken a hands-on approach to parenting — literally.

“I’m good at diaper duty. It’s my second time around, so I have some experience under my belt, but it’s 10 years later, so that changes things,” he told PEOPLE on Wednesday at the Imagine Ball Presented by John Terzian & Randall Kaplan Benefiting Imagine LA, hosted at the House of Blues in West Hollywood.

But his 10-year-old daughter, Coco, is giving him a run for his money. “She’s on diaper duty probably more than me!” he jokes.

Arquette, 42, said Coco has really embraced her role as a big sister. “She’s never jealous,” he explains. “She’s just the best big sister ever. She can’t stop kissing him enough!”

Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green weren’t too far off when they guessed that their son Noah Shannon would take his time warming up to his baby brother.

And with almost six months having passed since Bodhi Ransom‘s birth, the couple’s 22-month-old firstborn is still exploring his role.

“Half the time he is [excited], he wants to stroke his head and help feed him — then the other half of the time he tries to smother him,” the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles star joked to PEOPLE at a Wednesday screening of her film in New York City.

The actors are keeping their eye on both boys, as Noah has been known to experiment target practice with his toys. “He’s good most of the time, but then every once in a while, when we’re not looking and we hear the baby cry, we realize he’s thrown a toy at his face,” Fox, 28, says.
