Most moms probably expect their kids to follow their paths in one way or another. But for Gwyneth Paltrow, it’s quite the opposite when it comes to her daughter.

“My daughter is super ballsy. I always follow her lead,” the actress and lifestyle businesswoman, 44, shared about 12-year-old Apple for Harper’s Bazaar‘s November cover story. “I actually don’t need to encourage her to take risks. She likes to push herself; she wants to see how far she can get.”

Adds Paltrow, who is also mom to 10-year-old son Moses with her ex-husband, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, “It’s really inspiring to see that in a young woman.”

Kristin Cavallari and her husband, Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, certainly have their hands full between flourishing careers and being parents to three kids.

But the twosome still make sure to find time for just each other, even though doing so isn’t a simple task.

“It’s hard because by the time they all go to bed at night we are so exhausted,” the former Laguna Beach cast member told PEOPLE on Saturday at the Carousel of Hope Ball in Beverly Hills, California.

“We try to make date night regular, but it doesn’t happen as often as we would like, especially now that he’s in the football season, so he’s really busy,” says Cavallari, 29, adding candidly, “I wish I had some secret I could tell you. I don’t. We have to work on it like everyone else.”

Tom Brady may have a busy season ahead of him, but his most important job is still as dad to his three kids — and that includes being tough when he needs to be.

“I need more patience with my kids,” the New England Patriots quarterback, 39, tells PEOPLE. “I have a quick fuse sometimes, so when they’re older I imagine them going, ‘Dad, you were so hard on me.’ ”

Adds Brady, who is dad to 3½-year-old daughter Vivian Lake and 6½-year-old son Benjamin with supermodel wife Gisele Bündchen, as well as son Jack, 9, from a previous relationship, “I think discipline’s important, and typically that’s more the man’s role in the house.”

It’s a boy for Scott MacIntyre!

The season 8 American Idol finalist became a dad for the first time on Wednesday, Sept. 21, his rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

His wife Christina gave birth to a baby boy they named Christian Scott MacIntyre at 12:05 a.m., in Franklin, Tennessee. The couple’s first child was born weighing 6 lbs., 6 oz.

MacIntyre was born blind and previously underwent a kidney transplant at the age of 22 after he was diagnosed with kidney failure in his late teens. And last June, he was suffering from kidney failure again when a stranger offered to anonymously donate a kidney to the singer, which allowed him to become a dad.

“I am so grateful to my kidney donor for giving me my health back and allowing us to create this new life,” MacIntyre, 31, tells PEOPLE. “Being a dad is already so rewarding, and I am treasuring this special time with Christina and our son.”

Adds Christina, “I have always wanted to be a mom, and Christian is a beautiful gift. He is a calm and easygoing little guy just like his dad!”
