Prince William knew just what to do with a set of Christmas bells he got from some schoolchildren he met Wednesday outside London – use them as an audible alarm system on his toddler son.

“We’ll put these in [George’s] pockets and then we’ll know where he is in the house!” William, 32, joked after receiving the little bag of red bell Christmas ornaments from 9-year-old Dylan Marten Hughes.

The children, from three primary schools in Watford, near London, had been showing William a project that portrayed a man in a suit made of poppies. “Each of the poppies represent a soldier who died,” Thomas Brooker, 10, told him of the Remembrance Day project.

The children had taken part in a course run by SkillForce, a charity the Duke supports. After meeting them, William was given a painting depicting the battle at Nimy Bridge where Lt. Maurice Dease won the first posthumous Victoria Cross of the First World War. William visited his grave with his wife, Princess Kate, in August.

After Anmer Hameed and Laura Stafford, both 9, made the presentation, they told William about some of the sports – including dodgeball – they’ve been playing as part of their award. And William said he’d be in touch. “You’ll have to teach me dodgeball,” he joked with them.

William was in black tie and dinner suit for the 10th anniversary gala dinner at the Imperial War Museum for SkillForce, which draws on the skills of former servicemen to serve as role models for young people.

During the reception, William chatted with Keri-Anne Payne, 26, a two-time World 10 km Open Water champion, and an Olympic silver medalist who was helped by SkillForce when she arrived in the U.K. from South Africa at the age of 13.

She is now an ambassador for the charity. “They helped me settle, showed me the surrounding areas, gave me life-saving skills and gave me a sense of what Britain is like,” she said.

William is “really engaging with the children,” she added.

Britney Spears isn’t the only one smitten with her new boyfriend, writer and producer, Charlie Ebersol.

Her family is also very happy with the new romance. “He does well financially and is very private,” says a Spears source. “They don’t have to worry about whether he is using Britney.”

And although the relationship is new he has already met her sons, Preston, 9, and Jayden, 8.

Ebersol – whose parents are Dick Ebersol, Saturday Night Live co-creator and former NBC Sports chairman, and actress Susan Saint James, star of the ’80s sitcom Kate & Allie – started his own production company at 27. “He is driven, smart and ambitious,” says a source.

Ebersol and Spears met through a friend and the pop star appears grateful for that introduction. During Britney Day in Las Vegas on Nov. 5 she referred to him as her special someone. And according to a source, “she has been in the best mood” since meeting Ebersol and “finds him cute and funny.”

Channing Tatum says his wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, is his rock.

“She keeps us all sane,” the actor, 34, told reporters Tuesday night at a screening of Sony Pictures Classics’ Foxcatcher in New York City. “Jenna puts everything in perspective for me, always.”

Continues the actor about his wife, who is the mother of their 16-month-old daughter, Everly, “I’ll find myself spinning out or angry or whatever, or even happy, and she always somehow ends up righting the ship.”

Tatum told reporters that Jenna holds down the fort during the busier times in his life – like now.

“I just want to have that, more of that, more time with the family,” the actor, who just finished filming Magic Mike XXL, added. (Maybe that’s why he skipped the afterparty, sponsored by Details and Patron tequila.)

Along with Jenna, Tatum credits a costar with getting him through the filming of Foxcatcher, a dark drama based on the true story of two wrestler brothers and their eccentric coach, played by Steve Carell.

“Mark Ruffalo will forever and ever be my big brother, whether he wants me or not. I would never have been able to survive this movie without him and, truthfully, he’s a star,” Tatum said of the actor who plays his brother in the film.

Since giving birth to daughter Summer Rain in August, Christina Aguilera has been nesting at home with her new bundle of joy.

“She’s definitely more confident the second time around with motherhood,” an Aguilera insider tells PEOPLE.

Joining big brother Max Liron, 6½, “the baby has been great,” adds the source.

The singer, 33, who’s engaged to Matt Rutler, has also been easing back into work, shooting season 8 of The Voice (she’ll be back on TV in the spring) and working on her new album.

Stepping out at Sunday’s Breakthrough Prize Awards, Aguilera turned heads in a figure-hugging red gown that showed off her fit post-baby body.

“Her focus is really happiness within,” says the source. “Her workouts consist … of things that balance her mind, body and soul.”

To find out the secrets behind her sexy post-baby look, pick up this week’s issue of PEOPLE magazine, on stands Friday.
