Boy meets baby!

Boy Meets World star Rider Strong and wife Alexandra Baretto welcomed their first child, son Indigo “Indy” Baretto Strong on Sunday, Dec. 28, a rep for the actor confirms to PEOPLE.

The new dad, 35, wed his “partner-in-crime” Baretto, 39, in October 2013 and successfully kept Baretto’s pregnancy completely under wraps.

Strong — who played bad boy Shawn Hunter on the ABC sitcom and has reprised his role on the Disney Channel’s Girl Meets World — and Barreto, who plays Ana on The Fosters, met as costars on the short-lived WB series Pepper Dennis in 2006. They continued working together on the horror film Tooth and Nail later that year.

E! News was the first to announce the birth.

Claire Coffee is going to be a mom!

“We had definitely been planning for this because we both have such crazy schedules,” the Grimm star, 34, exclusively tells PEOPLE of expecting her first child with her husband, Chris Thile of the Punch Brothers.

“They talk about those mothering hormones kicking in around age 30 and that definitely is true. It’s been something I’ve been excited about for a while.”

In fact Coffee, who will welcome a son in May, was so eager to find out she was pregnant that she almost missed out on learning the happy news.

“I’m not a patient person and I didn’t realize you had to wait 10 minutes for the double lines to show up on those little pregnancy tests,” the actress says. “So I kept trying and just seeing the one line and I thinking, ‘Oh well, maybe next time.'”

Gwen Stefani‘s children have learned a lot from their fashionable mama — including how to put together the perfect everyday ensemble.

The blonde bombshell — who most recently won the Style Icon award at the PEOPLE Magazine Awards last month — has herself to thank for the creative outfits that her older boys, Kingston, 8½, and Zuma, 6, pull out of their closets.

“The first one loves [to style himself] and the second one is really happy to wear sports outfits,” Stefani, 45, told PEOPLE Tuesday afternoon at SoHo House West Hollywood, where she announced that her MasterCard Priceless Surprises concert will take place on Feb. 7 at the Orpheum in Los Angeles.

And as most young kids go through their minute-long obsessions, Stefani was particularly upset to see one of Zuma’s favorite alter-egos go.

“[Zuma] used to be really into costumes, but he’s out of that now, which is sad because we don’t have a superhero in the house anymore,” Stefani says.

Oh, to be Ryan Gosling‘s baby girl.

Since welcoming daughter Esmeralda Amada with longtime love Eva Mendes in September, the actor’s been busy flying back and forth between Los Angeles and Atlanta to shoot his upcoming film, The Nice Guys.

But that doesn’t mean the star hasn’t squeezed in as much quality time as possible with his family. “He’s been wanting to be a father for a long time,” a Gosling insider tells PEOPLE. “He’s cherishing every minute.”

Raising their daughter without a nanny, the new parents are “so tired, but so in love,” says a Mendes pal. “[The baby] is smiling and cooing and loves when Ryan sings to her.”

While Gosling, 34, and Mendes, 40, have no plans to wed any time soon, that doesn’t mean there’s trouble in paradise for the private pair, who stepped out for a rare date night on Saturday.

Why Molly Sims Is ‘Not Opposed’ to a Natural Birth After Previous C-Section

01/21/2015 at 01:30 PM ET

Molly Sims always knew she would be a mother, a suspicion confirmed during her frequent visits to psychics during her younger years.

But what she didn’t know was that her dreams of having a baby would come much later in life.

“I would have been a good mom earlier, but I didn’t find my prince until I was older,” The Everyday Supermodel author says in the February issue of Jeff Lipsky for Fit Pregnancy.

“I don’t regret starting later — everything I’ve wanted to do, I’ve done. I lived in Europe for six years, waitressed, worked at a book company and in a law office.”

Although she wouldn’t change the timeline of her life, Sims — who is mom to 2½-year-old son Brooks Alan and expecting her second child with husband Scott Stuber — admits her age has played a factor in her pregnancies. After discovering the couple would be welcoming another babya girl due in March — Sims decided to keep the news a secret until it was safe to share.

“I’m 41, so I had an ultrasound and blood tests to make sure everything was okay,” she explains. “We waited until we got the results at 14 weeks to tell anyone, but my in-laws came to visit early on and they said I looked green!”
