Busy Philipps‘s daughter Cricket Pearl is really keeping her mama hopping!

While attending Share Our Strength No Kid Hungry‘s fundraising dinner in Beverly Hills on Saturday, the actress told PEOPLE that her youngest daughter with husband Marc Silverstein is following in her very active footsteps.

“Cricket’s full on running. She’s a wild woman!” Philipps, 35, says.

“I never understood, my mom just keeps laughing and says that now I’m getting what I deserve because I was such a crazy baby.”

Although the 15-month-old is Philipps’s second child, she admits Cricket’s big sister Birdie Leigh, 6, was a “totally different” baby.

Daphne Oz: Not Bouncing Back After Baby Was a Shock

10/27/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

When Daphne Oz brought her daughter home from the hospital in February, she also brought along a very unexpected addition: her baby belly.

In the November/December issue of Fitness magazine, the new mom to Philomena Bijou admits what surprised her most about motherhood was her body after baby.

“You still look six months pregnant,” Oz, 28, says. “Your body does not instantly bounce back.”

And the surprises weren’t over. When Oz — who doesn’t own a scale — went for a postpartum check up, she was in for a second shock.

“I thought I knew where I’d be when I went for my first doctor appointment a few weeks after giving birth. I’d lost only 10 pounds!” she recalls.

Just like her daddy, 15-month-old North West is never far away from music.

But forget the saccharine toddler tunes. Kim Kardashian tells PEOPLE that North’s playlist is fairly eclectic — and it’s always on.

“I put on these lullabies for her. I put on pop music, Kanye‘s music. I have a whole iPod with everything all set up for her,” Kardashian says.

“Every day, from when we wake up, there’s music on. When we’re playing, when we go on our walk, every day there’s music on. I have a little Beats speaker, so we listen to music loud on our walks.”

Sometimes, North will even get the live version of her daddy’s songs at night.

Lake Bell‘s latest role is priceless: motherhood!

The Million Dollar Arm actress has welcomed her first child, a daughter, with husband Scott Campbell, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

After months of keeping her news under wraps, Bell was more than ready to embrace her bump.

“I think you start to get overwhelmed. You can overthink it. I was just sick and tired of hiding it,” the mom-to-be told PEOPLE in May.
