Chris Harrison‘s 12-year-old daughter is definitely daddy’s little girl.

Harrison sat down with People Now‘s Jeremy Parsons on Thursday to talk about his show, raising his kids and how it all comes together for the single father of two.

For Harrison, filming Bachelor in Paradise is a family vacation, and the host joked about bringing his kids to the locations of drama and debauchery.

“My kids came with me to Paradise this summer,” he said. “It’s our vacation — we hang out in Mexico and swim. I feel like it’s good life lessons for them to watch Jorge the bartender and then watch Josh eat pizza and make out with Amanda. It’s good.”

Harrison said he and his daughter Taylor even watch the show together.

“She’ll sit with me in bed because I usually get the pre-release, and we’ll watch it on my computer,” he said. “It is a great avenue for me to have a conversation with my daughter. I never thought about this, but as a single dad, I want to have conversations with my daughter about men, about dating, about these things that she is heading into … As much as I would love to lock her away, this is happening.”

Between delivery challenges, breastfeeding pain and sleepless nights, Audrina Patridge hasn’t sugarcoated how difficult motherhood can be.

But for the former reality star, parenthood came naturally — and every hurdle has been worth it for her daughter Kirra Max, now 12 weeks old.

“Every day I look at her and I can’t believe she’s mine. I can’t believe we made this,” Patridge, 31, tells PEOPLE exclusively. “And she’s changing every week. Now she’s smiling all the time and making ‘goo’s and ‘gah’s.

“She’s so cute. It melts my heart,” adds the former star of The Hills and current lifestyle blogger at AudrinaPatridge.com.

Nicky Hilton Rothschild has taken to her new role as mom to 10-week-old daughter Lily Grace Victoria “like a duck to water,” according to Kathy Hilton.

“She’s unbelievable,” Kathy told reporters of her daughter Nicky’s maternal instincts at the Brent Shapiro Foundation for Alcohol and Drug Prevention Summer Spectacular in Beverly Hills, California.

“Her computer and her phone have just been in the same place. We spent a month together out in the Hamptons and she’s breastfeeding and it’s a full time job — literally a full time job — so she can’t go anywhere for more than an hour. I think we went out twice.”

Along with a more subdued lifestyle, Kathy says that Nicky, 32, has everything on a schedule for Lily.

“With my babies, if I wanted to go pick them up I would just go in the room in the middle of the night, but Nicky is very much on a schedule. This is nap time, this is tummy time, so I’m just kind of like, ‘Okay,’ ” she says.

With two children, Alyssa Milano is a wealth of knowledge about motherhood and postpartum. The actress recently gave new moms loads of advice – all from first-hand experience – when she discussed the difficulties of losing the baby weight.

“I do believe that the weight does come off in the right time. I really do,” Milano, 43, told the Today show. “When I gave birth both times, I didn’t rush myself to lose the weight, but eventually it did come off.”

The mother of two explained, “Sometimes it’s hard work, but to me, it took such a backseat to being a new mother and what that meant and how special and physically demanding that was alone.”
