Time changes everything — just ask Lady Antebellum‘s Hillary Scott.

The band recently wrapped their Take Me Downtown tour and while they’ve sorted out the bus situation, the first-time mom admits she’s still adjusting to taking 13-month-old daughter Eisele Kaye out on the road.

“It’s a lot to juggle,” Scott, 28, tells PEOPLE. “When I’m on the road and touring, my whole day revolves around when I need to get ready, so by a certain time I need to be taking a shower and if I’m 10 minutes late, then it’s going to make the rest of the day shift.”

Adds the singer, “It can get stressful.”

Olympic gold medal-winning gymnast Shannon Miller calls her 15-month-old daughter Sterling her “miracle baby.”

Miller was diagnosed with a rare form of ovarian cancer (her older child, son Rocco, was 1 at the time) and lost her left ovary and fallopian tube. But before Sterling was even a thought, the Olympian was going through chemo and speaking publicly about her diagnosis when a stranger changed her life.

“This woman came up to me and took my hand, right before I went on the podium, and said, ‘I just want you to know, I had the exact same tumor. That was 10 years ago. I have two beautiful children. And you’re going to make it,'” an emotional Miller told PEOPLE at the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network‘s Cancer Lobby Day in Washington, D.C., Thursday.

For Hilary Duff, it’s all about him: her 2½-year-old son Luca Cruz.

But while the “All About You” singer is back to shining in the spotlight with her new single, Duff admits her toddler is showing signs he’ll have a future on the field.

“I don’t know if he’s so musically inclined. He’s a little more like his dad like that,” Duff, 26, told PEOPLE in New York Monday, when Trident and Oral Health America celebrated Smiles Across America‘s 10-year anniversary.

She adds of her son with Mike Comrie, “He plays soccer. Can you believe I’m a soccer mom?!”

But in between kicking a ball around, Luca loves listening to music — and he’s already Duff’s biggest fan.

Daphne Oz: Why Breastfeeding Is a ‘Luxury’

09/15/2014 at 06:00 PM ET

Chew on this: Daphne Oz is a believer in love at first sight.

From the moment the TV host and her husband John Jovanovic welcomed their first child, Philomena Bijou, in February, the new mom was completely head over heels for her daughter.

“For me, it was like getting a first-hand glimpse of what love at first sight is really like,” Oz says in an interview with Bravado Designs.

“It’s something that I think no one can really explain to you until you have a baby of your own and you feel that immense love for someone you don’t even know.”

Strengthening the bond between Oz and her now 6-month-old was her choice to breastfeed, a decision the new mom says gives her the “peace of mind of knowing that it is the best first choice of food for your baby.”

She may have doubted herself a few times during her “marathon” 36-hour delivery, but after welcoming daughter Marlowe Mae, it’s been smooth sailing for Eva Amurri Martino — at least in the nursing department.

“I was really lucky. She latched right away and she’s a voracious eater,” Martino, 29, tells PEOPLE.

She’s such a good eater that Mom actually needs to step in from time to time. “It can actually be a challenge because she eats a little too fast and I have to slow her down.”

But while the actress says her little lady is a natural, she’s honest about the inevitable early challenges of breastfeeding.

Bill Hader is the odd — make that only — man out in a home ruled by his leading ladies.

“It’s my lot in life,” Hader told PEOPLE at the Los Angeles premiere of The Skeleton Twins on Wednesday.

“I grew up with my two sisters and my mom, so it’s my lot in life to be surrounded by women.”

And while he tries to stand his ground, the actor admits he is outnumbered and will often surrender to his daughters, Harper, 2, and Hannah Kathryn, 5 next month.

“I’ll say, ‘I’m doing this!’ And, to me, masculinity is like, ‘I am watching TCM right now!’ ” Hader, 36, jokes. “They’re like, ‘No, we’re watching Peppa Pig.’ And I go, ‘Alright, Peppa Pig it is.’ “
