Georgina Bloomberg: Even with a Shot at the Rio Olympics, My Son Is the ‘Most Important Thing’

02/04/2016 at 05:00 PM ET

Georgina Bloomberg has been riding since she was 4, climbing the horse show ranks to the very top level, where she now competes internationally and even has a shot at the Olympics in Rio this summer.

But when she retires from the sport, Bloomberg, 33, is excited to fully embrace life as a mom to her 2-year-old son Jasper.

“I really like the idea of Jasper growing up in New York and having a normal life,” the younger daughter of former N.Y.C. mayor Mike Bloomberg tells PEOPLE exclusively.

“If I put my whole self into the sport right now, I like the idea of retiring and being just a mom and raising him in New York City. I love this sport and I’ve had some amazing times in it and I think I’ll always be involved in the sport in some way, but not necessarily as a rider.”

She adds, “Even if you told me I was guaranteed an Olympic medal, if I had to miss out on watching Jasper grow up and normal family stuff like that, I wouldn’t. He’s the most important thing.”

Jessica Biel Wakes Up ‘Disheveled, Running Late,’ But Cherishes Breakfasts with Son Silas

02/04/2016 at 02:00 PM ET

Jessica Biel‘s got her hands full, but nothing stops her from enjoying her morning meal with her little man.

“[Three things I can’t live without are] yoga, eating breakfast with my kid [and] listening to Erykah Badu while I eat with my kid. We love her,” Biel writes in a short question and answer with The Skimm on Instagram.

Although mornings start bright and early for Biel, 33, and Silas Randall, her 10-month-old son with husband Justin Timberlake, the busy mom admits hitting the snooze button a time or two isn’t an option.

“[I get up] two hours before I’d really like to,” she shares. “I’m not a snoozer. Never have been. Wish I was, but I would never get up if I did.”

Haylie Duff says she hasn’t bounced back to her pre-baby body nine months after giving birth to daughter Ryan Ava — but the actress is totally okay with that.

Duff told Wonderwall that she “definitely” doesn’t “feel like I’m looking amazing.”

She explained, “I have not put pressure on myself to lose everything right away.”

Aside from walks with baby Ryan, Duff’s fitness regimen has been mellow, mainly due to her desire to breastfeed her little girl.

“I had sort of an interesting situation when I was nursing where if I was working out too much or cutting my calories, my milk supply really went down,” the Real Girl’s Kitchen host, 30, told Wonderwall.

“So for me, it was a struggle because I really wanted to focus on losing weight and getting my body back. But at the end of the day, I had to sit down and make the decision that meant the most to me — and that was breastfeeding my baby.”

Tyra Banks has created many models during her 22 cycles as host and judge of America’s Next Top Model, and if anyone can attest to that, it’s former co-judge Nigel Barker.

But now the two have something else in common: parenthood.

Banks and boyfriend Erik Asla — also a Top Model photographer — recently announced the arrival of son York via gestational surrogate and the model’s former colleague is thrilled.

“I haven’t spoken to her yet, but I’m very happy for her,” Barker told PEOPLE at the Perry Ellis show for New York Fashion Week: Men’s. “I know it’s something she really wanted to do.”

Christina Aguilera: There’s Such a ‘Long List’ of Expectations for Women

02/01/2016 at 04:15 PM ET

Christina Aguilera has felt the many pressures of motherhood and has some advice for her parenting peers: Sometimes it’s best to go “Back to Basics” and occasionally put yourself first.

“Mothers are constantly expected to be the nurturers, the givers, the providers of a comfortable home. We’re expected to be pregnant, have the kids, breastfeed once we have the babies. And we’re expected to look amazing after baby, right?” the singer says in the March issue of Women’s Health.

“Keep our husbands and boyfriends interested — because we’re supposed to get back to sexy and keep things exciting in the bedroom. There’s such a long list.”
