“Oh my God. My daughter said her first proper swear word. That was a milestone in our house,” Hahn told PEOPLE at the Alliance of Moms Presents Raising Baby event in Los Angeles on Saturday.

“It was not a good one, but it was used correctly,” she says. “It was used as an adverb and there was a big old ‘ing’ on the end.”

Jordana Brewster holds her own with the guys in the Fast & Furious franchise and now in the CBS show, Lethal Weapon.

But the same goes for the guys at home, where her sons Julian, 3, and Rowan, 3 months, have a minor ongoing sibling rivalry.

“I thought [Julian] was great initially because he loves the baby,” Brewster told PEOPLE at the Alliance of Moms Presents Raising Baby event in Los Angeles, California, on Saturday.

“But then if it’s time for Mommy to feed the baby at 9 p.m., Julian wants to be there. Julian wants to be picked up. He’s definitely gunning for attention right when the baby needs attention. It’s tough.”

Kristen Bell spends her days working on NBC’s The Good Place. But for the mother of two, spending time at home with her family is a pretty good place, too.

I think every mother deserves to have access to that support system,” Bell told PEOPLE at the Alliance of Moms Presents Raising Baby in Los Angeles, which included workshops led by experts in child development and brain development.

She adds, “There’s no excuse for us not to be the village for people who need it.”

After three kids, Camila Alves knows the secret to a healthy lifestyle.

Alves, 34, shares son Levi, 8, daughter Vida, 6, and son Livingston, 3, with her husband, actor Matthew McConaughey. The former model sat down with PEOPLE to talk about her post-baby body and motherhood.

“I never understood when people go, ‘Oh my gosh, it’s so easy being pregnant,’ ” she says. “No, it’s hard. It’s the most beautiful thing, yes, but it’s hard.”

One difficult part of her three pregnancies was losing the weight she gained.

“My first one, lost the weight super easy,” she says of bouncing back after giving birth to Levi in 2008.

“The second one, a little bit harder. The third one, it just wasn’t going anywhere. So actually, [Livingston is] 3 years old and I stopped myself and went, ‘Camila, you’re still holding on to your baby weight and he’s 3 years old. That’s not okay.’ ”

Now King tells PEOPLE her baby boy is “doing amazing,” and the reason she felt compelled to share her family’s story is because she “knew how traumatic the experience was, how much [post-traumatic stress disorder] I had afterwards, and the trauma that I was experiencing before it.”

“It’s because I didn’t know anybody that had gone through it and I didn’t have people to talk to,” says King, who hosted the WEI Beauty Detoxifying Skincare Line luncheon, along with Jamie Chung in Hollywood on Wednesday.
