Becoming a new dad means investing in diapers, bottles and … action figures?

Actor and dad-to-be Corey Stoll told PEOPLE at the Ant-Man screening — hosted by The Cinema Society and Audi in N.Y.C. on Monday — that he is going to immerse his future baby boy in comics.

“Why wait, right? Watchmen at 6 months,” Stoll says.

Ashley Hebert Rosenbaum: I’m the ‘Happiest That I’ve Ever Felt’

07/10/2015 at 10:30 PM ET

The work-home division is a difficult conundrum for many new moms, but former Bachelorette Ashley Hebert Rosenbaum has found “the most perfect balance” between the two.

The new mom — who lives in Miami with husband J.P. Rosenbaum and their 9-month-old son Fordham Rhys  — spoke to PEOPLE while the couple celebrated their feature in Ocean Drive Magazine Tuesday night at The Shore Club Residences in South Beach.

Ashley, a pediatric dentist, was originally planning to set up her own practice once she was a mother, but soon after her baby boy was born, “I decided I wanted to spend more time with my son.”

Ah, sisters. So much love … and so much drama!

Alyson Hannigan says her girls Satyana Marie, 6, and Keeva Jane, 3, are total buddies. Well, except for the occasional standoffs.

“They are so lovely, they are such great friends and they love each other so much,” the How I Met Your Mother actress, 41, tells PEOPLE. “Obviously they have their moments where they need space or a nap. But they really are just such good friends and they’re so funny.”

Recently, though, they had a video-worthy moment.

“There was an argument going on that was so cute I had to record it,” Hannigan recalls. “It started with Saty wanting to play with Keeva, and Keeva wanted to have some alone playtime. And it got to a point where they’re both crying, and Saty is like, ‘But I want to play with you!’ And Keeva’s like, ‘But I want alone time!’ And it was just such a cute argument that I’m like, I’ve got to record this because they need to see it in 10 years.”

And Sweetin is already planning on having her daughtersBeatrix Carlin, 5 next month, and Zoie Laurelmae, 7 — join her on the Fuller House set as much as they can.

“I have a feeling once we start working it’s going to be hectic,” the actress explains. “Trying to make sure kids are picked up from school and if they’re coming to the set or they’re doing their homework or going back-and-forth [on] tape nights.”

Natalie Portman: I’ve Asked Cate Blanchett for Parenting Advice

07/09/2015 at 07:00 AM ET

Natalie Portman is not afraid to ask for advice.

Between her 4-year-old son Aleph and a nonstop acting career, Portman looks to fellow actress and mom Cate Blanchett for some parental guidance.

“Very early on, I asked [Cate] about being a parent,” Portman says in the August issue of Harper’s Bazaar. “I said, ‘How do you do it? You’re a mom. You’re the best at what you do.’ She said, ‘You just do. Stressing about it doesn’t help.’ ”

Diane Farr: My Daughter Was Bitten by a Rattlesnake

07/08/2015 at 07:50 PM ET

Monday started off as a normal morning for Diane Farr: The actress dropped her twin daughters off for another day of summer camp in La Canada, California.

But then the mom of three received a chilling call from Tom Sawyer Camp: 6½-year-old Coco had been bitten by a rattlesnake while playing and was being rushed to the hospital.

Farr, 45 — who is also mom to daughter Sawyer and son Beckett — raced to the emergency room, where she caught up with Coco and a team of doctors, who were working to administer the anti-venom.

With her daughter now recovering in the hospital’s pediatric unit, Farr opens up to PEOPLE about the last few days, including her emotional drive to the E.R., how Coco is feeling and what she hopes parents will learn from her experience.

Tamera Mowry-Housley didn’t have to search through any baby books to find a name for her daughter, Ariah Talea.

The actress and co-host of The Real had already made up her mind — long before she was even pregnant.

“I had always known that I wanted Aden to be my son’s name, and since Adam [Housley] began with an A as well, I wanted to keep our family tradition alive of starting my children’s names with the same letter,” the new mom of two writes on her website.

“So it worked out that before Adam and I were even married, we stumbled across a shop named Araya. I stopped and immediately told him I loved the name and wanted that to be my future daughter’s name.”

Although the couple did consider other choices — including Arriana and Aliana — they kept coming back to the same name. But Mowry-Housley wasn’t completely sold on the spelling: She wanted to change it to help with people’s pronunciation of the moniker.
