Baby number two is “inbound” for Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis.

The actor stopped by The Tonight Show Wednesday to gush about his 2-year-old daughter Wyatt, trade fatherhood tips with host Jimmy Fallon and talk about “getting ready to go from zone to man-to-man” as his wife’s due date grows near.

However, Kutcher is less prepared this time around.

“The first one, I almost became a doula. I was reading every book. I was ready. I had like a catcher’s mitt on,” The Ranch star joked. “This one, I haven’t done anything. I’m like, ‘Well, we didn’t break the first one.’ They’re really durable — that’s what you realize. They don’t break very easily.”

When Tori Spelling discovered she was pregnant with her fifth child, one of her first thoughts was to make sure that the terrifying ordeal she endured during her fourth pregnancy could be avoided.

“I thought if we had another baby, my life could potentially be in danger,” Spelling, 43, exclusively tells PEOPLE.

The actress suffered from placenta previa, a condition in which the placenta blocks the cervix, during her pregnancy with son Finn, now 4.

“Everything that could have gone wrong, went wrong,” continues Spelling, who spent three months in the hospital during her dangerous pregnancy due to excessive bleeding. “Dean [McDermott] and I created four beautiful children together and the thought of them not having a mother [if something went wrong again] was not something we were okay with.”

Of all the roles Benedict Cumberbatch has taken on, “Dad” might be his best one yet.

The actor, 40, opened up to Vanity Fair about his life as a newlywed to Sophie Hunter and new dad to his 16-month-old son Christopher “Kit” Carlton. In the November issue, Cumberbatch talks about what it’s like to have a family of his own.

“Having a baby — it’s massive,” he says. “And on a very unexpected level. Suddenly I understood my parents much more profoundly than I ever had before.”

Cumberbatch also talks about how welcoming Kit allowed him to better prepare for his role as Hamlet at London’s Barbican Centre.

“I was expecting, with Hamlet, that it might be a hindrance to be a father, because it’s all about being a son,” he says. “But it’s the opposite. You understand much more about being a son, becoming a father.”

The mother of two — who shares Hazel, 2, and Violet, 4 months, with husband John Krasinski — spoke to Jimmy Fallon about her older daughter’s changing pronunciation.

“Hazel had my accent for a really long time and would say things like ‘water’ which I was really proud of,” Blunt, 33, told Fallon on Monday night’s episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

“And then the other day she goes, [feigning American accent] ‘Can I have some water?’ And I went, ‘It’s water.’ And she was like, ‘No, it’s [American accent] water.‘ ”

With the upcoming election quickly approaching, Katie Holmes and her daughter are spending time together cheering on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

“We watch the debates together,” Holmes, 37, told PEOPLE at Quaker’s Oatober launch event at OatMeals on Monday in New York City. “It’s wonderful to have my 10-year-old see a woman up there doing well and being very clear and thoughtful in her responses and in her passion for what she wants to do for our country. That’s so powerful for a 10-year-old girl to see.”

Holmes, who shares Suri with ex-husband Tom Cruise, says watching Clinton has been empowering and inspiring.

“Obviously, it means so much as a woman to have the first woman president, but more importantly, she’s incredibly qualified for the job,” she says. “I believe in her, I feel her — and she has always worked so hard for children. I believe that our country will be taken care of with her as president.”
