Nancy O’Dell

introduces her daughter Ashby Grace, 9 weeks, in the latest issue of People. The Access Hollywood host says she’s been so enraptured with Ashby and motherhood that she has no idea who or what’s in the headlines anymore.

Nancy knows much more in addition to changing diapers. Husband Keith Zubchevich, 38, who has two sons, Tyler, 12, and Carson, 8, from his first marriage, calls his wife a "natural."

Keith chips in with some nice foot massages.

The 41-year-old, who says her daughter’s wardrobe " already rivals mine" with gifts from the likes of Halle Berry, returns to AH next month. She’s been getting camera-ready by nursing, working out thrice weekly and doing ballet-based exercises, resulting in a 24 lb. weight loss. That leaves six more pounds to go. As for a diet, Nancy says,

It’ll also most likely be easy to say no to more hours at work too since Nancy cannot stand being away from her daughter, whom she calls a " happy baby," who "loves to laugh at little animal sounds."
