While spending time in Switzerland, Gwen Stefani gave her Instagram followers a gorgeous glimpse into her life when she stopped to nurse her youngest son — 5-month-old Apollo Bowie Flynn — in front of a breathtaking backdrop.

Christina Applegate is many things — including an Emmy-winning actress, a cancer survivor and a philanthropist.
But there’s another side of the Anchorman star that nobody knew about … until now!
According to the actress, she’s a total dance mom to her 3½-year-old ballet dancer, daughter Sadie Grace.
“Sometimes I’ll find myself watching her in class, and I’m like, ‘Oh my God, you’re so being a dance mom,’ ” Applegate, 42, told PEOPLE at the Fourth Annual Celebration of Dance Gala presented by The Dizzy Feet Foundation on Sunday.
“I’m sitting [there] in my head going, ‘Why isn’t she pointing her foot that way?! Someone needs to go in there and fix her foot!’”
Applegate, who can no longer dance herself because of injuries — but still occasionally guest-judges on So You Think You Can Dance, grew up with an extreme passion for the sport.
“It was my secret thing I did that nobody knew I did,” Applegate shares. “I could go to classes and not have anyone bother me. And I did it for years up until I got pregnant with my daughter.”
“I now have to live vicariously through my daughter,” says Applegate. “I watch her and help her speak through her body — channel her emotions and her joy through her body. [I help her] get grounded, get all that stuff out.”
However, there is a fine line and even Applegate realizes she has been known to occasionally cross it.
“I was stretching her point today. I was like, ‘Let me stretch your point a little bit, Sades. Not for any particular reason — just giving you a little massage.’ I tricked her!” she admits.

Of course, Kardashian made sure to give a shout-out to proud pop Kanye West, 37, who played shutterbug for their daughter’s big day.
“Photo cred: Daddy,” she added to the caption.
“Kim and Kanye made sure it was very special,” a source told PEOPLE. “All the kids had the best time.”

“I had morning sickness this time, but it went away right at 12 weeks,” Milano, 41, says in the August/September issue of Fit Pregnancy, on newsstands Thursday. “With Milo, I didn’t have a minute of morning sickness. So I knew it was going to be a girl.”
The Mistresses star and husband David Bugliari announced in May that they’re expecting a daughter in early fall. And just like last time around, she’s setting aside obsessing over her image to focus on delivering and nurturing her baby girl.
Brian Bowen Smith
“A female body is not made to look good in a bikini. It’s made to give birth and have a baby and be a cozy companion for it afterward. And for my body, that meant putting on a lot of weight,” says Milano, who gained 55 pounds while pregnant with Milo.
“I didn’t indulge in fast food or junk food, so I knew it was a healthy weight. I just realized: This is what my body needs to do to have a healthy baby.”
The former Charmed star has handily dealt with haters in the past, getting comedian Jay Mohr to publicly apologize for knocking her post-baby body in January with a classy Tweet reading, “So sorry you felt the need to publicly fat-shame me. Be well and God Bless. Please send my love to your beautiful wife.”
In Fit Pregnancy, Milano — who now exercises with pre-natal yoga, Pilates and chasing after her toddler — expands on her refreshing philosophy.
“We don’t get hungry when we’re pregnant for no reason,” she says.
“You’re making a skeletal system. You’re making organs. I refuse to look at the scale. I didn’t look at the scale with Milo until the day I gave birth. It’s funny, my file was open at my appointment yesterday and there was a big Post-it note that said, ‘She does not want to know her weight.’”
Brian Bowen Smith
As for having children in her 40s, Milano says she’s at the perfect place for motherhood.
“I loved waiting a long time to be a mom. I’d had my ladies’ lunches and my shopping days,” she explains.
“When Milo finally came, I thought — This is what I’ve waited for my entire life. I wish I could sleep more, but it’s not like I wish there were other things I could be doing socially or for my own benefit. Because I really feel like he’s completed me.”

Kerri Walsh Jennings is feeling the heat.
“Man, I’m a little overwhelmed at the moment,” Walsh Jennings told PEOPLE Monday … though “overwhelmed” may be an understatement.
On top of competing in the ASICS World Series of Beach Volleyball Tournament in Long Beach (and broadcast on NBC) July 22 -27 with her new partner April Ross, the pro will be gunning for her fourth gold medal at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro — all while raising her three young children with husband Casey Jennings.
“I think the scale is always slightly lopsided, but that’s part of the balancing act: accepting things as they are, working really hard to control what I can control and have faith and let go,” Walsh Jennings, 35, says. “We signed up for this, and we knew it was going to be crazy and hard. But it’s the most beautiful challenge, for sure.”
So how does the beach pro — and mom to sons Joseph, 5, and Sundance, 4, and daughter Scout, 15 months — handle it all?
First, “Teamwork is what makes it count,” she says, adding that fellow volleyball player husband Jennings, 39, is “an amazing daddy. He keeps me focus and inspired.”
Also, their brood is always nearby and along for the ride.
“We want our kids to see us working and working hard and chasing our dreams. They’re very involved in what we do,” Walsh Jennings says. “They’re on our team, so we want them to know what we’re doing — and we’ve grown so much as a family because of everything we do together.” When they’re not jet-setting or training, their favorite down-time activity is simple: “To be home. It’s just the best, especially when we’re all together,” the working mom says with a laugh.
Coming from two very athletic parents, the kids are very energetic themselves.
“We’re very active people, so if we’re out of the house, we go to the beach and get the boys in the water. And my husband just took the boys to Lake Tahoe for 10 days.”
So might we have some future Olympians on our hands? Walsh Jennings would love it — but there’s no pressure!
“I am going to encourage them to be active and to get out there and play sports. But our little Sundance loves music — I can’t wait to see what they choose for their passions,” she says. “But if they were to be Olympians or college athletes or whatever they want to be, I fully support that. I can’t wait to be their biggest cheerleader!”
“Just thinking about it brings tears to my eyes,” she says. “That’s what she’s wanted for so long, and I can’t wait to be her auntie!”

Jimmy, you big (kinda) softy.
Kimmel announced that on the show’s two-week hiatus, he did some painting around the house, grew a beard and, oh yeah, had a baby.
“[Wife Molly McNearney, the show's co-head writer, and I] had a little girl, we named her after my grandmother — her name is Grandma Kimmel,” Kimmel continued. “Here she is with a bow on,” he said, cueing another pic. “She’s drunk as a skunk right there.”
“She weighed 6 lbs., 1 oz. at birth,” Kimmel added. “Twenty inches long, just above the legal limit — sometimes, they make you throw them back.”
“I’ve been taking somewhere in the neighborhood of 10,000 pictures of her a day,” Kimmel said, before showing a picture of Jane with her hand over her eyes in the classic “no pictures, please” pose. Said her dad, “She thinks I’m with TMZ now.”
Kimmel also has two other children, Kevin, 20, and Katie, 22, from his first marriage to Gina Maddy.
