Nick Lachey just announced he’s coming out with his fourth album and is currently working on two TV shows — all while trying to juggle being “the best husband and father you can be,” he tells PEOPLE.

But it’s wife Vanessa — and how she’s handling their little girl on the way — that has left him in awe.

“Vanessa is doing great,” he says. “It’s not easy to be pregnant and take care of a 2-year-old at the same time, but she makes it look effortless.”

As for son Camden John, who just celebrated his second birthday, he’s still adjusting to the idea of a sibling.

“I’m not sure that Camden totally understands the concept just yet, but he does know that Baby Sister is living in Mama’s belly!” says Lachey.

Some people read books, others plan their nurseries and a few enjoy a babymoon to prepare for a new addition.

Scott Foley gets a dog.

“My new motto is, ‘Just give me the mess.’ Just throw it all my way. I’ll take it, it doesn’t matter,” the Scandal star, 42, told PEOPLE at Twitter’s #TGIT premiere event for Shondaland’s ABC shows.

Although Foley is “so tired,” the actor — who is expecting his third child with wife Marika Dominczyk — admits there’s not much he can do before the delivery. “You’re never ready, especially for number three,” he says.

Instead, he packed up his brood — including daughter Malina, 4½, and son Keller, 2 — and headed to the pound to pick out a lab mix puppy. But, unfortunately, everyone’s not on board with the furry new family member.

Jessica Capshaw is in the middle of the terrible twos with her youngest daughterPoppy James.

But despite the phase, the Grey’s Anatomy actress, 38, admits the third time is definitely the charm.

“[She] is experiencing a reckoning of being two that [my] other two [children] did not have,” Capshaw told PEOPLE on Saturday at Twitter’s #TGIT premiere event for Shondaland’s ABC shows.

“So I feel very grateful that she’s my third so I have the wisdom and experience to know it’s all fine and will pass.”

Joking that Poppy has “third child syndrome,” Capshaw — who is also mom to daughter Eve Augusta, 4 next month, and son Luke Hudson, 7 — doesn’t allow much to faze her when it comes to the tantrums.

After 20-plus years as a Backstreet Boy, it’s safe to say that A.J. McLean knows a thing or two about adoring fans.

The days of women tossing their undergarments onto the stage may have passed, but McLean, 36, is far happier with a girl who is more likely to playfully hurl food from her high chair: his daughter, 22-month-old Ava Jaymes.

“She is my number one fan!” he told PEOPLE Thursday while attending the Get Lucky for Lupus 6th Annual Poker Tournament, benefitting Lupus L.A., at the Avalon in Hollywood.

“When my wife turns on ‘In a World Like This,’ she is like, ‘Daddy! Daddy! Daddy!'”

He continues, “She’s definitely a daddy’s girl, she lights up, she’s laughing.”

Roselyn Sánchez ‘Obsessed’ with Teaching Daughter to Dance

09/22/2014 at 09:00 AM ET

Roselyn Sánchez‘s big break came as a dancer on the Puerto Rican variety show Qué Vacilón — so it’s no surprise the Devious Maids star is introducing daughter Sebella Rose to the dancing world at a young age.

“I’m obsessed with Sebella having some kind of dance background,” the actress, 41, told PEOPLE while at a Pampers‘ event at The Grove on Sept. 9.

“She doesn’t need to be a professional dancer, but I want her, as part of her life, to be able to have a dance foundation.”

And it’s already paying off.

It’s been five months since Kerry Washington welcomed daughter Isabelle Amarachi — and the actress is still in complete baby bliss.

“[Motherhood is] wonderful. We just continue to feel very blessed,” the Scandal star, 37, told PEOPLE on Saturday at Twitter’s #TGIT premiere event for Shondaland’s ABC shows.

But while Washington says her baby girl is hitting major milestones “all the time … it’s pretty amazing,” the new mom is reaching a few postpartum markers of her own.

Washington, who wore a printed mini dress by Mary Katrantzou, credits her love of Pilates with helping her bounce back after giving birth.

Although Pete Wentz‘s new baby boy is too young to understand his father’s occupation, the Fall Out Boy bassist’s oldest son, Bronx, knows what his dad does — and he’s not impressed.

“[He] comes to our shows, but it’s the equivalent to me going to my dad’s job when I was a kid. At the end of the day, it’s Dad’s job,” Wentz told PEOPLE at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas on Friday.

“All I am to him is his dad. When he sees people want to take a picture with me, he thinks it’s hilarious.”

In fact, adds Wentz, his 5½-year-old is completely “uninterested” in his dad’s rock star status.
