Alyson Hannigan Gets ‘Sweet Revenge’ for Daughter Biting While Breastfeeding

12/15/2014 at 11:00 AM ET

Losing a tooth is a great moment in a child’s life, but pulling a tooth from her daughter’s mouth was an even better one for mom Alyson Hannigan.

“The first two teeth are gone,” Hannigan, 40, told PEOPLE of daughter, Satyana Marie, 5½, at Thursday’s Disney on Ice presents Let’s Celebrate! in Los Angeles.

“The first one … she pulled it out herself. It was dangling there. I said, ‘Get the camera!’ And we got it on video.”

Just two weeks later, a second tooth was ready to come out, but this time, the actress stepped in to offer a helping hand.

“She was getting frustrated. She kept saying, ‘You do it.’ So I was wiggling it and then I pulled it,” shares Hannigan. “She gave me this look like, ‘See? You can’t do it either!’ And I showed it to her in my hand. She was blown away.”

Malin Akerman: Motherhood Is the ‘Best Job I’ve Ever Had’

12/15/2014 at 09:00 AM ET

Returning as Juna Millken to the HBO hit show The Comeback is a great gig for actress Malin Akerman, but not as good as being mom to 20-month-old son Sebastian.

Motherhood is amazing,” Akerman, 36, told PEOPLE at Thursday’s Disney on Ice presents Let’s Celebrate! in Los Angeles. “What mother would say it sucks? It’s a lot of work, but it’s the best job I’ve ever had.”

Akerman, who is a former figure skater, brought Sebastian to the evening’s festivities, where he got the chance to ice skate.

“I was a figure skater for 12 years. This was super special getting him on skates for the first time,” explains Akerman. “He did great. He was tap dancing instead of skating. I don’t know what means, so we’ll see.”

Tia Mowry-Hardrict seems to have mastered the trick every mother dreams of: potty training.

“I know this is crazy, but I’m a mom. When [my son] does the number two, we sing ‘Let it Go,’ ” the Instant Mom star told PEOPLE at Rihanna‘s First Annual Diamond Ball on Thursday night in Beverly Hills.

She adds, “He sings it and that is what really, really helped.”

The Game alum, who was accompanied by her husband, Cory Hardrict, admits that potty training their son, Cree Taylor, 3, was quite “hard” in the beginning.

“They usually say put Cheerios in the toilet and then let them aim, but that’s for number one. And boys, it’s harder to potty train, I heard,” she says.

Fourth Child on the Way for Mark-Paul Gosselaar

12/12/2014 at 11:35 AM ET

Mark-Paul Gosselaar‘s family is growing again — and he couldn’t be happier.

“It’s something we’re really excited about and we’ve been planning for awhile,” the actor, 40, told PEOPLE at Thursday’s Disney on Ice presents Let’s Celebrate! in Los Angeles.

Gosselaar’s new addition will be his second child with his wife, Catriona McGinn. The couple welcomed son Dekker Edward, now 14 months, in 2013 and the dad-to-be admits having back-to-back babies is working in their favor.

“We’re doing some tweaks to the house and some things to prepare for the room,” he explains. “But we’re old pros at this now. How do you prepare other than get as much sleep as you can?”

Maya Rudolph has found her lucky number.

After welcoming her fourth child, daughter Minnie Ida, now 16 months, the actress and director Paul Thomas Anderson have decided their family is finally complete.

“Hell no,” Rudolph, 42, told PEOPLE at the Inherent Vice premiere Wednesday when asked if she sees more kids in her future.

“I would be a crazy person if that happened! I would be a crazy person!”

Rudolph already has her hands full — she’s also mom to daughters Lucille, 5, and Pearl, 9, and son Jack, 3 — and although she says being a mom is “great,” it’s a full-time job.

Ashton Kutcher: Why We Don’t Have a Nanny

12/12/2014 at 08:00 AM ET

Life will never be the same.

Two months into the experience of being a father, Ashton Kutcher says it’s been completely transformative for him and fiancée Mila Kunis.

“It’s just how much you can love another person,” the actor, 36, tells Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show Friday about what has surprised him most about fatherhood.

“You think you know how much you can love another person, and then you have a child and you realize you didn’t know. It’s infinitely rewarding.”

He adds: “There’s a great quote by Carlos Slim, and he said, ‘Most people think they need to make a better world for their children, but the reality is we need to make better children for our world.’ And I try to live by that. And I think I really look at this as the greatest opportunity of my life.”
