Goodbye, healthy habits. Hello, truffle popcorn!

All throughout her pregnancy, Kendra Wilkinson has made eating clean a priority for both her and her family, but the mom-to-be — who’s expecting a girl in mid May — is temporarily calling it quits.

“I’m 33 weeks right now. I’m at the point where I give up. I threw in the towel,” she told PEOPLE while snacking at the launch of Jennifer Love Hewitt‘s L collection for A Pea in the Pod on Tuesday in Beverly Hills.

But while there are some areas the Kendra on Top star is willing to ease up on during her pregnancy, prepping her son Hank IV for the arrival of his baby sister isn’t one of them.

“He is still my baby. That’s the one thing we keep telling him, ‘No matter what, you’re still our baby.’ We’re going to always treat him that way and empower him,” she explains.

Five months after giving birth to Maceo-Robert, Halle Berry is back to work filming her new CBS television show Extant, premiering July 9.

The actress says one of the main reasons she decided to take on a TV role is so she can be closer to her 5-month-old son with husband Olivier Martinez and her 6-year-old daughter, Nahla Ariela.

“I no longer can afford to have the gypsy life,” she tells PEOPLE. “This [show] allows me to stay home and still do something really creative and cool that I love.”

The actress, 47, is also busy promoting her film Frankie & Alice and says thinking of the other working moms out there helps her get through the long days.

She’s had an Office job, gotten married and is expecting her second child, but occasionally Jenna Fischer just has to take a step back to let it all soak in.

“Sometimes I can’t believe that I live in a house I pay a mortgage for — it’s all so very adult,” the actress(here in a printed Ingrid & Isabel navy maxi dress) told PEOPLE at the launch of Jennifer Love Hewitt‘s L collection for A Pea in the Pod on Tuesday in Beverly Hills.

“Now we’re going to be responsible for two people. It’s a little daunting.”

As she is “getting close” to delivering, Fischer — who is keeping baby’s sex a secret — has taken a sweet approach to preparing son Weston Lee for the upcoming addition.

As full-time working parents, Giuliana and Bill Rancic have their hands full juggling hosting gigs, speaking engagements and filming for their reality show, Giuliana & Bill.

But one little man in their lives gets first priority: son Edward Duke, 19 months.

“We are busier than ever,” Giuliana, 39, tells PEOPLE. “But it makes it easier to love what I do. I don’t see it as a job. If I had to leave him every day and go somewhere I wasn’t happy, I’d probably be a stay-at-home mom.”

She adds, “We’re just trying to figure out what the next couple of years looks like and make sure Duke has everything he could possibly need.”

Jennifer Love Hewitt Feels Lucky with Her Dancing Baby and ‘Awesome’ Husband

04/01/2014 at 11:00 AM ET

Jennifer Love Hewitt has a baby — and a husband — with all the right moves.

At just 4 months old, baby daughter Autumn James already has quite the appreciation for music, and is learning to groove along with it.

“She loves Pharrell and Drake. She’s big into hip-hop and Latin music for some reason,” the actress says in an interview airing Tuesday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show — a program that Autumn also seems drawn to.

“The second the show comes on and you start dancing, she does this weird kick thing with her leg, and she gets her little chair,” Hewitt, 35, tells DeGeneres. “I think she’s gonna be a dancer. I really do. She loves it.”

Halle Berry: Nahla Is ‘Very Serious’ About Being a Big Sister

Halle Berry Nahla Big Sister to Maceo-Robert Splash News Online

After becoming a mother later in life to daughter Nahla, Halle Berry never believed more kids were in the cards for her.

But in July 2013, the actress married Olivier Martinez and the couple welcomed a son, Maceo-Robert, in October — an unexpected blessing that Berry never saw coming.

“I just feel great because I have another baby. I never thought that at my stage in life another baby — and a baby boy — was coming to me,” the Frankie & Alice star, 47, tells Extra.

Not only does she feel wonderful, but Berry — who showed off her svelte shape less than four months after childbirth — has already bounced back from her pregnancy.

She credits her quick turnaround to nursing and healthy eating habits.

“Every mother should breastfeed. It’s the quickest way to shed the initial weight and then you have to eat right,” she explains. Read More

When Alfonso Ribeiro and his wife Angela had a baby boy last October, they got a crash course on the difference between sons and daughters.

Alfonso Lincoln is an awesome, fun little dude,” Ribeiro, who also has a 10-year-old daughter, Sienna, from a previous marriage, tells PEOPLE.

“But I’m really seeing the difference between ‘Daddy’s little girl’ and ‘Mama’s little boy.’ My son is really attached to his mama, and my daughter was really attached to me. I think that’s just the way things go.”

But there’s one thing that Ribeiro, 42, has going for him with his 5-month-old. “He knows my voice. If he hears my voice, even if it’s on TV, he starts looking around for me. He’s a lot of fun.”
