Josh Duhamel‘s little boy isn’t so little anymore.

“He’s already swimming around in the pool, and I was like, ‘What the hell happened to my baby?’ He’s walking all over the place, talking. He’s a toddler now!” the actor tells PEOPLE of 13-month-old Axl Jack.

“It happens quick. Next thing you know, they’re going off to college. So that’s one thing I’ve really taken to heart, trying to be there as much as I can.”

Axl is growing into his own musical tastes. He listens to the new songs mom Fergie is recording and has repped Wu Tang Clan on Instagram. But Duhamel, 41, says his son is really into Bob Marley: His parents read him the children’s picture book Every Little Thing by Marley’s daughter, Cedella, and sing along to the lyrics.

“He loves that book,” the You’re Not You star says. “It’s the one book we can get him to sit down and actually listen to.”

10/10/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

Motherhood has officially left its mark on Jaime King.

The Hart of Dixie actress, and mom to 1-year-old son James Knight, showed off her latest tattoo — a sword topped with praying hands and a circle of stars — Wednesday on Instagram.

And with many of her followers guessing at the meaning behind her new ink job, King, 35, followed up with a second post on Friday to set the record straight.

“I wanted a sword for every Knight had their special one [and] to represent ‘the sword of truth,’ which I believe means to live authenticity, cut through any illusions — to be a spiritual warrior,” she writes. “It says Knight in the blade. There is a heart at the helm representing the loving trinity of myself, my husband [and] child.”
