Kerri Walsh Jennings is feeling the heat.

“Man, I’m a little overwhelmed at the moment,” Walsh Jennings told PEOPLE Monday … though “overwhelmed” may be an understatement.

On top of competing in the ASICS World Series of Beach Volleyball Tournament in Long Beach (and broadcast on NBC) July 22 -27 with her new partner April Ross, the pro will be gunning for her fourth gold medal at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro — all while raising her three young children with husband Casey Jennings.

“I think the scale is always slightly lopsided, but that’s part of the balancing act: accepting things as they are, working really hard to control what I can control and have faith and let go,” Walsh Jennings, 35, says. “We signed up for this, and we knew it was going to be crazy and hard. But it’s the most beautiful challenge, for sure.”

Jimmy Kimmel Introduces Newborn Daughter Jane

07/22/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

Jimmy, you big (kinda) softy.

On Monday night, late-night host Jimmy Kimmel revealed pictures of his daughter, Jane – who was born on July 10 – though he did so in a decidedly Kimmel-esque manner.

Kimmel announced that on the show’s two-week hiatus, he did some painting around the house, grew a beard and, oh yeah, had a baby.

“[Wife Molly McNearney, the show's co-head writer, and I] had a little girl, we named her after my grandmother — her name is Grandma Kimmel,” Kimmel continued. “Here she is with a bow on,” he said, cueing another pic. “She’s drunk as a skunk right there.”

With two little boys at home, Jared Padalecki wants to spend as much quality time with them as he can.

“After Supernatural I hope to kind of back off from the business and work more sporadically and be a father and be a basketball coach for my kids, maybe get into producing or something,” Padalecki, 32, told reporters at the CW TCA in Beverly Hills on Friday.

For now, the actor says there is no balance, but he makes sure he has dedicated family time for his sons, Thomas Colton, 2½, and Shepherd, 7 months.

“I am violently protective of my — I call it my off-time — when I’m not working. I’m straight home and whether they’re in Vancouver or they’re in Seattle or wherever we happen to be I’m straight to them,” Padalecki explains.

Extra host Mario Lopez is having a sporty summer with his two young children!

Between swimming every day in their new pool and heading to local parks in Los Angeles with biking and jogging strollers, the doting father spends his free time introducing his kids, daughter Gia Francesca, 3½, and son Dominic, 10 months, to the great outdoors.

“We just got our pool finished so when Gia is not in Montessori school or at ballet classes, I get her to go swimming with her little brother, who has learned to swim before walking,” Lopez told PEOPLE Saturday, while hosting a party aboard the Lady Windridge yacht in Miami Beach to promote Bonefish Grill‘s new menu.

He adds, “We all love summer because we can be outside and get a lot of exercise while having fun.”

Nick Lachey may have already taught son Camden John a lot of new things — but learning to test the limits wasn’t one of them.

With the VH1 host and wife Vanessa‘s son set to celebrate his second birthday in September, the couple are learning firsthand what the terrible twos entail.

“He knows the word ‘no’ — of course he didn’t learn it from me, but he knows the word,” Lachey told PEOPLE at friend Matt Leinart‘s 8th annual Celebrity Bowl for Charity on Thursday.

“He’s a typical 2-year-old. He sees how much he can get away with and pushes the end of the envelope, but it’s a lot of fun.”

But the proud dad admits there’s plenty of exciting times, too. “It’s a great age. He’s discovering his personality, he’s getting into everything [and] he’s talking like crazy,” he says. “They start to figure things out and push their boundaries.”

Why David and Victoria Beckham ‘Limit’ Screen Time

07/18/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

David Beckham learned discipline on the soccer field — and the father-of-four makes sure to bring that lesson home to his kids.

The soccer star, 39, shared that his three sonsBrooklyn, 15, Romeo, 11, and Cruz, 9 — do play sports-themed video games, but he and wife Victoria are strict about their screen time.

“We put a time limit on it. You have to,” Beckham told PEOPLE Thursday at the inaugural Kids’ Choice Sports Awards in Los Angeles, where he received the Legend Award. “No more than an hour. I know that sounds pretty harsh, but I want my boys to be outside playing.”

Expectant Kristen Bell ‘Completely Stumped’ on Name for Second Child

Kristen Bell has captivated children everywhere as the plucky Princess Anna in Disney’s hit animated musical Frozen.

But there’s one little girl who has yet to experience the magic: Bell’s daughter Lincoln, 15 months.

“She does not watch TV yet,” Bell, 33, tells PEOPLE. “She has no idea!”

Pediatricians recommend limiting TV viewing for children under 2, so Lincoln hasn’t see her mom or dad, Parenthood actor Dax Shepard, on the small screen. Once she’s old enough, though, Bell is happy Lincoln will learn Frozen’s brave lessons.

“I think it’s beautiful to show kids how great it can be to love through fear, to love someone even when they’re afraid to love themselves,” she says. “That’s a huge message I want to teach my kids: You’re allowed to be afraid, but you have to know why … and you have to try to love beyond that fear.”

The movie’s moral of sisterly love will take on an added significance soon: Bell is carrying her second child.
