Aww! Jimmy Fallon Pens His First Baby Book

10/20/2014 at 09:00 AM ET

It’s the magical moment most parents secretly wish will end in a win for them — baby’s first word!

But then it happened: first-time father Jimmy Fallon‘s daughter Winnie Rose gave those coveted bragging rights to mom Nancy Juvonen Fallon.

Now the Tonight Show host is doing his part to ensure his fellow fathers don’t miss out on the milestone by publishing his second children’s book, Your Baby’s First Word Will Be Dada.

“This is one of the few celebrity books that you can tell was actually written by a celebrity,” Fallon, 40, jokes.

The sweet picture book — available June 9 — serves as a hilarious how-to on coaching your kiddie to show Dad some love, with cows, sheep, horses and mice prompting their pint-sized mini-me‘s to say, “Dada.”

Fourth Child on the Way for Stanley Tucci

The fun and games are amping up to a whole new level at Stanley Tucci‘s house.

The Hunger Games star, 53, will welcome his first child with his wife, literary agent Felicity Blunt, 33, a source confirms to PEOPLE.

It’s been just more than two years since Tucci and Blunt — the sister of actress Emily Blunt — revealed they secretly wed in a 2012 interview. It was a happy ending for Tucci, who has three children — twins Nicolo and Isabel, 14 and Camilla, 12 — with his late wife, Kate, who died in 2009 from breast cancer.

This new addition will have an extra adorable buddy: Emily and husband John Krasinski‘s daughter Hazel, whom they welcomed in February.

And we have a feeling Tucci’s new addition will fit right in with the rest of the family, too. “I do joke around with my kids,” he told Reuters in 2010. “We laugh a lot.”

Ryan Reynolds already has a crazy baby name (or two!) up his sleeve.

The actor opened up to Canadian entertainment show etalk while receiving his star at Canada’s Walk of Fame in Toronto on Saturday, and let’s just say his ideas are wild — even for a celebrity parent-to-be.

“On the plane over here I was trying to think of baby names. I don’t want a name that’s anything pretentious or, like, Hollywood-y,” said Reynolds, 37. “So I’m going with Excalibur Anaconda Reynolds … that’s if it’s a girl.”

And if it’s a boy? The funnyman outed himself as a Keeping Up with the Kardashians fan.

Bruce Jenner,” he joked.

First steps? Been there. First words? Done.

Malin Akerman‘s baby boy Sebastian has learned a rare new skill: He’s is trilingual!

“I feel like every day is a milestone, but he’s running and walking up and down steps on his own now talking three languages, so it’s amazing,” The Comeback star said at Saturday’s Environmental Media Awards, hosted at Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, California.

“Whenever he sees his dad he starts speaking Italian, he sees me and starts speaking Swedish, and his nanny speaks English,” she explains. “So, it’s really just amazing to watch how a child’s brain works.”

Kristen Bell: Why We Taught Lincoln Sign Language

Kristen Bell‘s 18-month-old daughter Lincoln is already a great communicator.

“[She can say] a lot of two-syllable words, but she signs mostly because she’s really good at it,” the actress told PEOPLE at This Party Saves Lives event hosted by her company, This Bar Saves Lives, on Thursday night.

She adds, “People recommend doing signs because the baby can communicate with you and say, ‘I want an apple’ or ‘Look at the black dog,’ and you can actually form sentences.”

While Lincoln works on her signing skills, Bell, 34, and husband Dax Shepard, 39, are preparing for the upcoming arrival of their second child. The actress says her pregnancy has fortunately been a breeze — just like her first.

“Thank my lucky stars, it’s been a virtually identical pregnancy,” she shares. “Pregnancy can be really hard for women, and I’m lucky that I’m not really symptomatic. I’m okay with being on my feet and I’m lucky that my body feels really good.”

Her mama would be oh-so proud: Kourtney Kardashian is jumping on Kris Jenner‘s bandwagon.

Taking a page straight out of the family matriarch’s style book, the mom-to-be raided her youngest sister Kylie‘s closet — and struck gold.

Kardashian, 35 — who’s expecting her third child with Scott Disick in December — stepped out on Thursday sporting her treasured find: an embroidered tribal tunic.

And before Kylie could catch wind of her sister’s stylish steal, the expectant reality star took to Instagram to confess her fashionable feat.

“Shout out to my fashionista sister @kyliejenner for letting me borrow your dress AKA I stole it and you had no idea but for not freaking out when you see me wearing it,” she wrote.
