How Celebrity Chef Art Smith Became a Dad – to Four Kids at Once

08/24/2015 at 08:00 PM ET

Celebrity chef Art Smith likes to say that a piece of artwork brought him and his husband their four children.

In February 2014, Smith’s husband, artist Jesus Salgueiro, went to dinner with his friend, Dr. Dora Maya, president and CEO of Arden Shore Child and Family Services in Waukegan, Illinois. The two had gotten to know each other after he donated artwork to the agency and became one of its biggest supporters.

During dinner, Maya told him about three children who were in need of a foster home. “They had been placed in three different homes,” Salgueiro tells PEOPLE. “When I heard this, I was like, ‘We have to take these children.’ ”

He and Smith, who live in Chicago, were heartbroken when they learned that they wouldn’t be able to take them in. “We were sad because we fell in love with these children,” says Salgueiro, 54.

Soleil Moon Frye: ‘I Encourage My Daughters to Be Individuals’

08/24/2015 at 07:45 PM ET

When it comes to how her daughters, 10-year-old Poet and 7-year-old Jagger, dress, Soleil Moon Frye gives them free rein.

“I have friends that are much more conscious and so amazingly stylish, and their kids literally have design to the T,” the actress, 39, tells PEOPLE. “My girls are much more like anything goes. And I just let them go for it.”

Frye sees her kids’ fashion choices as one of the ways they express themselves.

“I feel like it’s just such self expression, and I don’t want to ever limit them from what they do,” she says. “Sometimes I’ll say, ‘Hey, can we go with this style?’ and usually they’ll shut it down, and have much more their own design sense. They’re such individuals, and so I really try to encourage them to be individuals.”
