Sydney Bristow would be proud: Jennifer Garner‘s girls are learning to master martial arts.

The actress, 42, wants her daughters to embrace their “femininity” by playing with baby dolls and knowing how to bake.

However, she also wants Violet, 9 next month, and Seraphina, 5½, “to be able to kick a guy’s ass,” she told reporters on the red carpet at the 2nd annual Save the Children Illumination Gala.

“That’s why they’ve been taking karate since they were little!”

Keeping up with a newborn isn’t easy, but Kourtney Kardashian is happy to take on the challenge by herself.

When the reality star welcomes her third child in December, the mom-to-be already has plans in place to take a serious time out.

“I love doing everything myself at the beginning,” Kardashian, 35, says in the December/January issue of Fit Pregnancy.

“I’m not getting a baby nurse. I take two months off and no one is allowed to bother me or talk to me about anything work-related — or maybe three months this time.”
