06/17/2016 at 01:45 PM ET

Ginger Zee and Ben Aaron‘s son Adrian Benjamin‘s namesake was almost a pooch!

In an upcoming episode of TLC’s Since I Said Yes – a followup special to the network’s popular series Say Yes to the Dress — then-pregnant Zee details the naming process she and Aaron went through before settling on Adrian, now 6 months.

“I’d like to see him,” the Dancing with the Stars finalist, 35, explains in the clip, noting, “I had a dozen names that I loved, and he said every single one I picked sounded like they grew up on the golf course and never worked a day in their life.”

“Bunch of collar poppers,” jokes Aaron, 34.

Jeff Goldblum on Being a Hands-on Dad to Son Charlie: Taking Family Baths Is ‘Delightful’

06/17/2016 at 01:00 PM ET

Jeff Goldblum may have become a first-time father at the age of 62, but the actor has had a very good reason for waiting until later in life to have a kid.

“I never seriously considered it until [wife Emilie Livingston],” Goldblum, now 63, told Parade magazine of his 11-month-old son Charlie Ocean.

Adds the Independence Day: Resurgence star, who has been married twice previously, “I’m at a different place now. I was enthusiastic to marry [Emilie] and try to have a baby.”

Goldblum has been a household name since the mid-1980s, with his big break in the sci-fi thriller The Fly. And as it turns out, his newest film has even more meaning to the well-loved star than just the fact that he gets to reconnect with the ideas and people involved in the original, 20 years later.

“Charlie was born on Independence Day, July 4, while we were shooting Independence Day: Resurgence in Albuquerque!” he shares.

06/16/2016 at 05:05 PM ET

Nothing about Jennifer Lopez‘s life with twins Maximilian and Emme is ordinary, but it works for them.

In an upcoming interview with Fox 5 New York’s Rosanna Scotto, Lopez opens up about life with her 8-year-olds, and how they make school and mom’s time in the spotlight work.

“We don’t have a normal life, I don’t have normal kids,” Lopez says from Las Vegas, where she’s currently in residence at AXIS Theater in Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. “I’m not normal. So our life is not normal. I’ve come to terms with that.”

Kevin Hart on How He Approached the ‘Sports Bra Conversation’ with His Daughter: ‘It’s Time to Hold ‘Em Down’

06/16/2016 at 02:35 PM ET

Things have just gotten real in Kevin Hart‘s parenting world.

“I had to have the sports bra conversation with my little girl [Heaven Leigh, 11],” the actor and comedian, 36, told Kelly Ripa during a Thursday co-hosting stint on Live with Kelly. “That was tough, because I didn’t know how to articulate what I was trying to say, and it just came out.

“I know she was confused because I was confused by the end of it,” he adds. “I was like, ‘It’s time to hold ’em down.’ That’s how I went into it, and she was like, ‘What?’

“I was like, ‘You gotta strap ’em up — make sure that everything is where it’s supposed to be, because last thing you wanna do is hit a bump and [have] stuff fall out,’ you know what I mean?” he joked to laughter from the audience.

Hart finishes, “She was like, ‘What are you saying?!’ and I was like, ‘Do you want breakfast or not?’ I didn’t know where to go from there at all.”

06/16/2016 at 01:45 PM ET

Jerry O’Connell has his work cut out for him when wife Rebecca Romijn is away.

On Thursday’s episode of Live with Kelly, the 42-year-old actor dished on what it’s like to be a dad to 7-year-old twin daughters Dolly Rebecca Rose and Charlie Tamara Tulip when his wife of almost nine years is out of town.

“You don’t live with them, so you don’t know what they’re really like,” the Stand by Me star joked when Kelly Ripa commented on how his daughters have seemingly grown so quickly.

When asked if he feels outnumbered by all the women in his life, O’Connell says he only really does during the one-hour morning “rush” in his house when Romijn, 43, is away and the girls are trying to get ready for school.

“[When] my wife is out of town, I’m like, ‘Come on, go go go go go!’ ” he explains. “Hair for me is the toughest thing.”
