Sarah Michelle Gellar is not necessarily preparing for her kids to follow in her and her husband Freddie Prinze Jr.‘s footsteps.

For the mother of two, it’s important to let her son Rocky James, 4, and daughter Charlotte Grace, 7, do their own thing.

“It’s different because I wasn’t the child of someone that was in the public eye, and so unfortunately I think the rules are different,” she told PEOPLE at Kids in the Kitchen at The Grove in Los Angeles on Sunday.

“I think there’s a very different pressure for ‘the children of’ … They can decide what they want to do for themselves. I’ll never push them. But, in the meantime, they have to stick to schooling. My kids have too much stage fright anyway.”

Luke Bryan’s Fame Doesn’t Give Him ‘Cool’ Points with His Kids: ‘It Doesn’t Faze Them’

10/03/2016 at 02:15 PM ET

Over the weekend, Luke Bryan played to about 30,000 people in the middle of the Las Vegas Strip. If you think his children are impressed, well, think again.

“It’s fun having my boys at the age where if they’re in my truck, I can play them a new song and see if they like it and see what they think about their dad’s newest songs,” he told PEOPLE on Sunday.

His kids — Thomas “Bo” Boyer, 8, and Tatum “Tate” Christopher, 6 — don’t necessarily have a favorite song that their dad sings, but they do have favorite activities.

Still, they understand that a lot people really like their dad, as evidenced by the massive crowd gathered to see him at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Sin City.

Emily Blunt was not going to let her pregnancy keep her from filming Girl on the Train.

And her costars Justin Theroux and Luke Evans remember how she eventually revealed her secret

“She was not giving a word up, and I was like, ‘Why are you behaving so weird in rehearsal?’ ” Theroux, 45, tells PEOPLE Now. “She was not wanting to jump or run … and this was the woman who did Edge of Tomorrow, this was the woman who has done Sicario, so I know she can handle herself.”

And the not-so-subtle hints kept coming when Theroux and Blunt took a break from rehearsal.

“We went back to my place and I was like, ‘Do you want a drink? Do you want a beer or something?’ ” he says. “And she was like ‘No, I’m just having a green juice and coconut water.’ I was like ‘What’s going on here?’ ”

Oops! Armie Hammer Reveals the Sex of His Second Child: ‘I’m In So Much Trouble’

Armie Hammer

Armie Hammer just dropped the hammer on keeping his baby’s sex under wraps.

The actor, 30, is expecting his second child with his wife Elizabeth Chambers some time next year — and the dad-to-be slipped that he will no longer be outnumbered by his wife and 22-month-old daughter Harper Grace.

Hammer started out okay in his interview with Jimmy Kimmel on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Thursday and simply said, “We have another child on the way.”

But when it came to answering Kimmel’s question about the baby’s sex, Hammer made it pretty clear that a boy is on the way.

“I do know,” he says about the sex of his unborn child. “You can find out now at nine weeks, which is really bizarre. They do a blood test. It’s crazy. They test if there’s hormones in there. They go, ‘Oh, you’ve got testosterone — so you’ve either got balls or you’re having a baby boy.’ ”

Jennifer Garner is trying her best to lead by example for her three kids.

Garner, 44, shares daughters Violet, 10, and Seraphina, 7, and son Samuel, 4, with Ben Affleck, and told TODAY Parents about her latest challenge: raising a preteen.

“We just had back to school night, and I said afterwards, ‘Do they need a computer?’ ” she says. “Our daughter doesn’t have any of those things, and she’s the only kid in the class who doesn’t, apparently, so I found an old laptop this weekend for her.”

She continues, “I am kind of panicked about it. She’s not on social media yet — her school has a no social media policy until 6th grade — but I know it’s coming soon.”
