Play with your children. Let them choose the activity, and don't worry about rules. Just go with the flow and have fun. That's the name of the game.

It's shaping up to be an exciting year in celebrity baby news.

Some of our favorite actors, musicians, athletes and celebrities have expanded their families with new babies.

The year began with singer Carrie Underwood welcoming her second son with husband Mike Fisher . Victoria’s Secret model Lily Aldridge also had a baby boy in January, her second child with Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill .

In February, Bravo TV host Andy Cohen became a dad for the first time while 69-year-old actor Richard Gere welcomed his second son.

Today our family became complete as we welcomed our daughter Navy Rome to the world. Born on 2/4/19 weighing 7lbs 12oz and looking identical to her older brother. So excited to watch what life has in store for this little princess. 👸🏼

A post shared by Jason Aldean (@jasonaldean) on

Ask your children three "you" questions every day. The art of conversation is an important social skill, but parents often neglect to teach it. Get a kid going with questions like, "Did you have fun at school?"; "What did you do at the party you went to?"; or "Where do you want to go tomorrow afternoon?"

“Today our family became complete as we welcomed our daughter Navy Rome to the world...So excited to watch what life has in store for this little princess," Aldean wrote on Instagram.

The couple share a son named Memphis, born in 2017. Aldean has two daughters from a previous marriage.

Victoria’s Secret model Lily Aldridge and husband, Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill, welcomed a baby boy. He joins big sister, Dixie Pearl, born in 2012. Aldridge said Winston “blessed our lives” in her announcement post.

Remember that discipline is not punishment. Enforcing limits is really about teaching kids how to behave in the world and helping them to become competent, caring, and in control.

Aldridge made headlines for walking the runway at New York Fashion Week 2018 when she was five months pregnant. She rocked a red, body-hugging Brandon Maxwell gown.
