Why Alyson Hannigan’s Daughters Might Miss Her Sofia the First Role

11/24/2014 at 04:00 PM ET

Alyson Hannigan has always been drawn to animation, but it was her Buffy the Vampire Slayer director, Joss Whedon, who put the connection best.

“I think Joss put it perfectly when he said, ‘I feel like if we opened you up, a cartoon would just pop out,’ ” Hannigan tells PEOPLE. “I think that’s the most fitting description of me.”

Now the former How I Met Your Mother star is meeting her ‘toon destiny with a guest-voice role on Disney Channel’s Sofia the First in a new episode premiering Dec. 12 at 9 a.m.

Hannigan plays Winter, a gentle faun who yearns for a special ability — only to realize she was special all along. (Awwwwww.)

The Bush frontman said he loves to watch his older sons Kingston, 8½, and Zuma, 6, dote on their baby brotherApollo, 9 months.

Ryan Reynolds has no fears about becoming a first-time dad with wife Blake Lively, who’s expecting the A-list couple’s first baby in early 2015 — especially when it comes to the messier side of parenting.

“I don’t have a weak stomach,” the actor, 38, told PEOPLE on Saturday at The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research Benefit in New York. “I’m good with diapers and diarrhea and all that kind of stuff because I have lots of nieces and nephews, so I’ve done it all before.”

So what part of fatherhood is he looking forward to most?

“I’m just excited about having a buddy,” he said. “We don’t know if it’s a boy or a girl yet, but whatever it is, you have this tether to reality that never goes away.”

His enthusiasm should come as no surprise to Lively, 27, who recently told PEOPLE that her hunky hubby “takes pretty good care of me.”
