Chris Pratt and Anna Faris Joke: We Left Jack at Home to Have Fun at Oscars

02/22/2015 at 09:00 PM ET

Chris Pratt and Anna Faris can’t help but have fun together.

The couple joked with Robin Roberts on the Oscars red carpet about their son Jack, who stayed home for the big night.

“We have a little toddler at home, so we’re not going home,” Faris said with a laugh.

“Not going home, not for a week. Going out drinking for a week straight. He’s 2½, he can take care of himself for a few days,” the Guardians of the Galaxy actor, who wed Faris in 2009, added with a smile.

Jack is the couple’s only child, though Pratt has said that he’d like more children in the future.

David Furnish: Zachary’s Broken Clavicle Is ‘Part of Little Boys’

02/20/2015 at 06:55 PM ET

Elton John David Furnish Son Breaks Bone

One parenting lesson Elton John and David Furnish already know: boys will be boys.

Zachary broke his clavicle two days ago on the playground jumping off the climbing tower,” Furnish told PEOPLE of the couple’s 4-year-old son during the Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar Party Preview Day on Thursday.

“Which we told him not to do and told him not to do and told him not to do — and all his friends were doing it and he couldn’t understand why we didn’t want him to.”

He continues, “You turn your back for half-a-second and he jumps off the climbing tower. He’s fine. It’s part of little boys, and growing and bumps and bruises and fortunately, not major broken bones.”

Their tough little man will still join his 2-year-old brother Elijah at their parents’ annual Academy Awards viewing party on Sunday, where Furnish, 52, and John, 67, are hosting a “’70s disco glamour” fête for 1,000 people.

With all his expertise in interior design, you’d think Nate Berkus would be itching to decorate his baby-on-the-way’s sleep space — and you’d be wrong!

“I’m Jewish, so we don’t decorate the nursery before the baby’s born,” Berkus, 43, told PEOPLE Thursday at the Unstopables home fragrance scent decor collection launch in New York City.

“It’s a superstition; it’s a cultural thing,” Berkus explains. “I think it means you’re tempting fate, so I’m not tempting anything: healthy baby, gorgeous nursery on the way. Knock on wood!”

In September, Berkus announced on Facebook that he and husband Jeremiah Brent were expecting their first child via surrogate this spring.

Evan Ross: Ashlee Simpson’s Son and I Are ‘Like Homies’

02/19/2015 at 04:15 PM ET

When Evan Ross tied the knot with Ashlee Simpson in August, the wedding was about more than the couple’s love: They were also sharing their day with someone very special.

The singer/actor said during a Thursday appearance on The Wendy Williams Show that he was honored to have Simpson’s son Bronx Mowgli there for the celebration.

“He was so excited when we got married,” Ross, 26, tells Wendy Williams. “I was like, ‘It’s just as much your wedding as ours.’ ”

But the 6-year-old’s excitement didn’t come as a surprise. According to Ross, dating — and eventually marrying — Simpson has been a smooth transition for the blended families.

“He’s my friend, we became like homies, we’re good buddies,” he explains of Simpson’s son with ex-husband Pete Wentz.

Jenna Bush Hager: Why I Put Down My Phone When I’m with My Daughter

02/18/2015 at 07:00 PM ET

Jenna Bush Hager had planned to keep her baby’s sex a delivery surprise. But when everyone started telling her she’d be welcoming a son, the mom-to-be went ahead and put her bets on a baby boy.

“We didn’t find out the gender, but literally everyone thought I was having a boy, including random strangers who would approach me at coffee shops, the drugstore, etc,” she tells Cricket’s Circle.

And then the first-time mom took it a step further. “I figured they must all be onto something, so I was convinced too — so much so, I painted the nursery blue!”

Fast-forward a few weeks and the delivery surprise turned out to be more of a shock: When Bush Hager gave birth to her first child in April 2013, she and husband Henry Hager became the proud parents of daughter Mila.

James Corden: Hosting Late Late Night ‘Pales in Significance’ to Fatherhood

James Corden Vanity Fair Young Hollywood party

Late nights are all about diaper duty for new dad James Corden.

But his after-hours schedule is about to take a turn when the British actor and comedian takes the reins of the Late Late Show from Craig Ferguson in March.

“I’m nervous and excited,” Corden, 36, said of his new hosting gig while at the Vanity Fair Young Hollywood party sponsored by Grey Goose, held Tuesday night at No Vacancy.

Even still, his nerves hardly stand up in comparison to what it was like to become a father. “What’s more scary? Being a father. No question,” he shares. “It’s just a TV show. It all pales in significance.”

While fatherhood consists of “a lot of feeding and burping” 4-month-old daughter Carey, Corden and his wife Julia still want to distribute the nighttime duties fairly.

“[It’s] mostly whoever is nearest,” jokes the comedian. “Me and my wife do rock, paper, scissors for who gets up in the night. That happens all the time.”

Why Kristen Bell ‘Really Enjoyed’ Her Epidural – Despite the Face-Scratching

02/16/2015 at 01:20 PM ET

For Kristen Bell, delivering her second daughter Delta, 7 weeks, was a beautiful experience – what she remembers of it, at least.

Bell told Ellen DeGeneres Monday that an unexpected C-section meant she needed to have an epidural: “As someone who has never experimented with drugs, I really enjoyed it,” she joked. “While they were doing it, I was thinking, ‘What else could we get done down there?’ … Anything to keep the epidural flowing.”

But flow it did not, and Bell said she started “scratching her face … like a meth addict” when the medicine began to exit her system.
