Fergie: How Josh Duhamel and I Make Our Marriage Work

01/20/2015 at 01:00 PM ET

When Josh Duhamel got the chance to meet his future wife Fergie in 2004,  it was truly a dream come true.

The meeting, Fergie says in the February issue of Allure, came shortly after Duhamel had recalled his vivid thoughts — featuring the “My Humps” singer — to a reporter.

“Yeah, yeah, exactly — he just wanted to get in my pants,” the songstress, 39, jokes of their initial encounter, which eventually became the start to their now 10-year relationship.

“We just grew. And we grew into realizing that we wanted the same things in life. We wanted the same path,” explains Fergie. “We both come from Catholic families.”

Christina Milian Turned Up Daughter Violet

Family is at the center of E!‘s new series Christina Milian Turned Up.

The “docu-soap” follows Christina Milian, 33, as she lives and works with three generations of her family: mother/manager Carmen, sisters Danielle and Liz, and her “crazy, funny, really sarcastic” daughter, Violet Madison, 5 next month.

In an exclusive clip from Sunday’s premiere, Milian dotes on her little “ball of sunshine” and details how motherhood transformed her world.

“The second that she was born, it was, like, instantly I became a child again,” Milian says of Violet.

“It’s like I see the world with new eyes: Not only is this my life to live, this is for my daughter,” she continues. “If you really go into it with the mentality that you can do it and this has all been placed into your life for a reason at this time, then, hey, you gotta go with it.”

Devious Maids star Dania Ramirez is determined that her twins, Gaia Jissel and John Aether, grow up to be bilingual — and luckily her family is completely on board.

“My cousin Yoli is here from Mexico, and she’s been helping me with the kids since the very start. She only speaks Spanish to the babies,” Ramirez, 35, told PEOPLE at the L.A. Art Show Opening Night, benefitting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, in downtown Los Angeles.

“We just started reading them books in Spanish as well. Just trying to tell them all the stories in English and Spanish so they can be fluent,” she says.

While her 1-year-olds aren’t showing off their foreign language skills quite yet, Ramirez sees her efforts paying off. “I have everyone speaking to them in Spanish [so] I think they might understand it a little better right now,” she explains.

Dax Shepard Jokes He’ll Need ‘Medication’ If Kristen Bell Gives Birth Again

01/15/2015 at 01:15 PM ET

After watching wife Kristen Bell give birth to their first child, daughter Lincoln, Dax Shepard thought he had seen it all.

But then the actress needed a last-minute c-section with their second daughter — and the Parenthood star quickly realized how very wrong he had been.

“Kristen, God bless her, was in labor for 33 hours,” Shepard, 40, said during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing Thursday. “[Her labor with Lincoln was] 15 [hours]. That’s child’s play.”

Bell wasn’t the only one reeling from the “intense” delivery. “She got an epidural hour 14 — as you should — and I think dads need something,” he explained.

“I deserve something because I was along for the ride,” he said. “It’s still a car crash and I’m in the passenger seat. I’m playing Katy Perry and I’m breathing and I’m rubbing her back and I have fatigue and I think, ‘I need something for this, help me.’ ”

Pete Wentz: The Key to Blended Families Is ‘Putting the Kids First’

Nothing forces you to grow up quite like having a baby — just ask Pete Wentz.

“When you have kids, you have to take into account that they’re real people and need to see their parents, and you’ve got to figure out how to make that lifestyle work,” the Fall Out Boy rocker, whose new album, American Beauty/American Psycho drops Tuesday, tells PEOPLE.

“In order for us to have kept doing the band, we needed to grow up a little … I think we’ve done a pretty good job with it so far.”

Three of the alternative band’s four members now have children, and Wentz says the trick to making it work for his brood is traveling with the family.

“There are cribs backstage now; they’re Pack ‘n Plays, actually,” the bassist, 35, says with a laugh. “My family’s pretty nomadic. We’re able to move around, and that’s the only life that my kids have grown up with, so I think it’s somewhat normal. It’s pretty fun. There’s nothing like a bus to put a kid to sleep: It’s really dark, and the engine’s really loud.”

Michael Strahan has some impressively ambitious children.

“They already know what they want to do with their lives, which I am amazed at because, at their age, I had no idea what I was going to do,” Strahan tells PEOPLE about his children.

The father of four — Tanita, 23, Michael Jr., 20, and 10-year-old twins Isabella and Sophia — foresees futures in the fashion merchandising and psychology fields for his kids.

“[My girls are] big time into animals,” Strahan, 43, says. “We have two dogs — they also foster dogs — they have nine cats, three horses, and [every] time I see them I’m at some fundraiser to help raise money for some local shelter.”

He adds, “They’re great kids with great hearts.”

It’s playtime over politics these days for Bill Clinton.

The former president stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers, airing Wednesday at 12:35am on NBC, to discuss his new favorite person: granddaughter Charlotte.

“I love it,” Clinton, 68, tells Meyers in an exclusive clip from Wednesday night’s show. “Like every other grandfather, I think my granddaughter’s the greatest thing since sliced bread.”

Daughter Chelsea, 34, and husband Marc Mezvinsky welcomed Charlotte last September, making Bill and wife Hillary Clinton first-time grandparents.

As for how he’s doing in his new role, Clinton says, “It’s so fun. So far my daughter has not had to discipline [Charlotte’s] overly exuberant grandparents too much.”
