Country star Keith Urban recently spoke with CMT Insider about his role as full-time dad with newborn daughter, Sunday Rose, while wife and actress Nicole Kidman is filming.
“When my wife’s working and I’ve got time off, I’m just Mr. Mom during the day, taking care of the little girl,” said Urban, 40, who also called fatherhood “beautiful.”
Keith also commented on taking Sunday Rose on the road with Nicole while he’s on tour.
“That’s what we’ll do next year. Just balancing touring with being home, it’s good to have them out on the road … so we’re not apart very much.”
To see the full Urban interview, check out CMT INSIDER on Saturday, Sept. 13. The show airs at 1:30p ET/PT.
Mom-to-be, Mel C, 34, who is expecting her first baby with boyfriend of six years, Thomas Starr, is turning to her mom for parenting advice, and brushing off advice from her Spice Girl pals.
Mel told New! Magazine,
“I used to love the fact that I was the only Spice Girl who didn’t need to lug around loads of baby stuff. Mad, innit? Me a mum. The girls are made up for me and have all offered to guide and advise me, but I’m sticking with my mum. She’s my best friend and you don’t get any better than that.”
Mel has put plans to launch her new album on hold to focus on her new baby.

LeAnn Rimes, 26, has made it known that she and husband of seven years Dean Sheremet, 27, are ready for a baby. The couple already have names picked out, but know that will likely change.
“I definitely have a list and I’m trying not to make them too strange. We’re prepared on the name front, but I know it will probably change a zillion times.”
When questioned about any specific measures taken to become pregnant she said, “No, nothing too drastic yet. Just good old fashion trying!”

On deciding how many children the couple will have, Rimes says,
“We’ll start with one. I was an only child so I’m totally okay with one. And plus, with the career and everything, for a while I think one would be a lot easier to travel with.”
LeAnn is looking forward the changing aspects of her relationship with Dean, but not looking forward to childbirth.
“Becoming a kid again myself would be a lot of fun, and Dean’s so good with kids. My mom always said, “You think you’re in love with someone but you don’t really realize how deep it can be until you have kids.” It’s going to be interesting to have that experience with him. I’m totally terrified of childbirth! I’m excited to see how I’ll deal with that.”
LeAnn is keeping busy by taking an active role in the “Stop Hiding. Start Living” campaign for the National Psoriasis Foundation, a disease to which she recently admitted having herself.

Not only did Ellen DeGeneres and new wife Portia meet up with Gavin Rossdale and his 2-year-old, Kingston, as the two played on the beach on August 31, she also got to spend some time with newborn Zuma, too – and some maternal instincts made themselves known.
“I was holding Zuma this weekend. And all I kept doing was [singing] ‘All I want to do is a Zuma Zuma zoom and shake your rump.”
That’s not to say that Ellen hasn’t thought about kids before, though.
“We’ve thought of names, ironically … Jumbo Shrimp is good,” the talk show host tells Extra.
And, if they don’t end up having biological kids, Ellen wants to adopt – and she’s already got her eye on three candidates.
“I would adopt the Jonas Brothers,” she quipped. “They really are good kids. They appreciate everything still.”
The new season of Ellen debuts Monday with Michelle Obama as her guest.
Singer Pink, who split with her husband of two years, Carey Hart, in February, spoke to Star magazine about having kids one day – but she doesn’t want biological ones, preferring instead to adopt.
“I don’t know if I need to have my own children. I rescue dogs so I would probably rescue kids. I feel like with global warming and all, why produce more. Foster parent. Adoption.”
Pink still remains close with her ex, helping him through the death of Carey’s brother, Anthony, in a motorcycle accident.
