Why Scott Wolf ‘Took a Knee’ After Learning His Third Child Was on the Way

For Scott Wolf and his wife, Kelley, making their family an actual party of five by adding a third child was just a matter of time.

Up until the May arrival of daughter Lucy Marie, the couple’s family planning had been successful — despite an unexpected age gap between sons Jackson Kayse, 5, and Miller William, 20 months.

“We knew that we wanted to start and that’s when we had our first,” the actor, 46, told PEOPLE while attending the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey LEGENDS event Thursday evening in Los Angeles.

“But the second one took longer than we thought it might, so that 3½-year split was a little bit more than we originally set out [for].”

So the Perception star admits to being more than a little stunned when his wife opened up a very specific dialogue one morning.

Kids. They grow up so fast these days.

That definitely seems to be the case for Tamar Braxton-Herbert‘s son Logan. The star of WE TV’s Braxton Family Values and Tamar and Vince, says her 13-month-old is verging on a savant.

“He’s amazing,” Braxton-Herbert, 37, told PEOPLE at Gain Fling’s Music to Your Nose event during the 20th Annual Essence Music Festival on July 2.

“He’s walking, he’s talking, he’s playing the piano — he’s a little Benjamin Button, it’s crazy. I don’t know what happened, he’s not a baby anymore.”

The little mover and shaker has some grown-up swagger, too. His look “is just like Vince’s,” she says of her son and husband Vince Herbert‘s father-son style.

A very pregnant Stacy Keibler is ready for mommyhood.

“We’re completely ready to go. We’re just sitting around waiting now,” Keibler told PEOPLE of her nursery at the Baby Jogger Vue Launch held at Bel Bambini on Thursday.

The mom-to-be — who is expecting a daughter in August — adds that the finished nursery is chic and filled with sentiments.

“Actually, at my baby shower I asked everybody to bring their favorite children’s book,” Keibler, 34, says. “It’s great because the nursery is filled with all of my friends and family’s favorite children’s books. So she’s covered.”

And although Keibler and her husband, tech entrepreneur Jared Pobre, are keeping the name of their daughter private — even from friends and family — she admits the name-picking process was simple for the couple.
