Poppy Montgomery Introduces Son Gus Monroe

01/07/2015 at 03:00 PM ET

No surprise here: Now that she’s a mom of three kids, Poppy Montgomery isn’t getting much shuteye these days.

“I’m so sleep-deprived. It’s like I’m on an acid trip and everything is hallucinatory,” the Unforgettable star tells PEOPLE exclusively, while introducing her newest addition, son Gus Monroe.

“I get maybe two hours and Shawn is sleeping the same, nothing. We grab it in fits and spurts. Gus is my third child, but you forget how big of a change it is with a newborn.”

Montgomery, 42, and Microsoft executive husband Shawn Sanford welcomed Gus in November. The baby boy joins the couple’s daughter Violet Grace, 20 months. Montgomery is also mom to son Jackson Phillip, 7, from a former relationship, while Sanford is father to two kids from his previous marriage.

Chris Pratt: Disciplining My Son Is ‘So Frustrating’

01/07/2015 at 01:00 PM ET

Chris Pratt is turning to his talkative 2½-year-old son Jack for both wisdom — and a bit of parenting therapy.

The Parks and Recreation star, appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Wednesday, said his verbal son, who was born prematurely, has dazzled with his thoughtfulness, seeming to understand a lot of complicated things.

“He really is a remarkable kid,” Pratt, 35, tells Ellen DeGeneres, noting the so-called Terrible Twos has not happened at his house.

But, he adds, Jack, his first child with wife Anna Faris, is already telling it like it is.

“From what I understand, most of the Terrible Two stuff is the toddler’s inability to express what they want. They know what they want, but they can’t tell you because they don’t know the words yet,” Pratt says. “He’s so vocal that it’s not that hard for him.”

Anna Faris‘s son Jack is about to become her biggest fan.

“[He’s] been recognizing [me] if I’m in something on TV,” Faris tells PEOPLE of her 2-year-old son. “He’s starting to understand.”

The actress, 38, will co-host the 40th Annual People’s Choice Awards with Mom costar Allison Janney, live from the Nokia Theatre in Hollywood Wednesday night at 9 p.m. on CBS.

“There’s gonna be fear behind these eyes on the day I’m up there on stage,” shares Faris. “I’m gonna try to hide it. There’s gonna be some fear!”

But, luckily, she can count on Janney, 55, to be by her side. “I don’t think I could do it with anybody else right now,” she explains.

Padma Lakshmi is turning her daughter’s tough break into a shining style moment.

After 4½-year-old Krishna Thea injured her elbow, the Top Chef host did what any fashionable mama would do. She busted out the glue gun, a few sparkly accessories and got to work on a mini masterpiece.

The result: A black cast that even the queen of all things bedazzled, Beyoncé, would approve of.
