Shonda Rhimes is proud to be raising three headstrong daughters.

“They couldn’t be more different from one another, but they’re all stubborn — and I mean that in the best way,” the Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal creator, and executive producer of How to Get Away with Murder and The Catch, told Good Housekeeping of her girls.

“No one will ever take advantage of them,” she explains of Beckett, 2½, Emerson, 4½, and Harper, 14. “They will always go their own way because they have decided they’re going to.”

Michael Phelps may be retiring from his Olympics career, but he has plenty to look forward to in parenting 3-month-old son Boomer Robert — and a possible new addition.

“We’ve talked about more [children]. We don’t really know how many more we want,” the 31-year-old swimmer said Tuesday in a PEOPLE live chat from Rio. “I think we’re gonna have some fun with Boomer before we make that next choice of trying for another one.

“We would love a girl. Love, love, love a girl,” he adds. “We wanted a boy first, just in case we did have other children, [so] he could be the protector of his younger sibling or siblings.

“So we started off on a perfect note: We got a boy. We got a beautiful, healthy baby boy, and we’re looking to continue to grow our family.”

Mom of three Liv Tyler, who welcomed daughter Lula Rose just last month, says she would rather focus on bonding with her “beautiful baby girl” than putting pressure on herself to lose baby weight.

“Just be kind to yourself,” the Empire Records actress tells PEOPLE of her advice to other new moms feeling the pressure, adding, “Everyone is different. Everyone’s body is different, everyone’s birth experience is different.”

“Some people’s body type is that they totally look normal right after [birth], and [for] others, it takes many months,” she continues. “But I think it’s best to focus on your health and the health of your baby and bonding.”
