These precious lil babies have a mom who is on prime time TV and a dad who is a soap star. We revealed the couple was expecting a few months ago, but for the most part their parents keep a low profile and haven’t been featured on BOSSIP much.

Any guesses?

These little guys are John Rubén and Michael Luís the sons of “The Fosters” actress Sherri Saum and her husband “One Life To Live” actor Kamar de los Reyes. Don’t they make such a beautiful family?

People.com did an interview with Sherri which we’ve excerpted below:

After playing a mother of five on The Fosters for two seasons, Sherri Saum finally has a family of her own.

The actress and husband Kamar de los Reyes welcomed twins John Rubén and Michael Luís on May 13. Now, the proud mama is sharing the first photos of her sweet sons exclusively with PEOPLE.

“I love how they look at me,” Saum, 39, says of her boys. “I feel like they trust me, and in turn I feel like these little dudes are going to always have my back.”

Congratulations on your beautiful boys! How did you pick their names?

Thank you so much! At first we were trying to get creative with their first names but ultimately we decided that they already have a lot to live up to with their last name being de los Reyes (of the kings)!

You said you wanted to meet them first before committing to the names for sure — how did you decide which name fit which baby?

It was an easy fit for both. John means gracious, and when he was delivered he didn’t even scream. Just a very polite whimper to let us know he arrived. Michael was easy because I always felt it was such a masculine name. And Michael looked so very masculine even from the day he was born. My little man-baby.

How was your labor and delivery experience?

It was pretty chill up until my water broke. I checked into the hospital the night before because we just knew it was going to happen. I was full term with twins. I was only in active labor for an hour and 20 minutes — I got an epidural, but I think they gave me a placebo because I felt everything!

I didn’t think the first boy was ever going to come out — but Kamar was right there cheering me on — he was in full coach mode to the point that I had to turn to him and say, “Um babe — okay could ya just not say anything for a minute?!” But he made me feel like I could do anything, and he was so proud of me.

Do you and your husband divide and conquer caring for the twins?

We do. We have a factory-like system going on with the feeding and bathing. I’m lucky because Kamar has a very organized way of approaching everything he does, and it comes in handy with babies who need structure. He has a 17-year-old son, Caylen, so it’s not his first rodeo.

Sometimes I’ll be pulling my hair out, and he’ll just swoop in like some mythical baby whispering superhero — he straps them onto his chest and salsa dances with them — or plays the congas while bouncing them on an exercise ball.

What most surprised you about becoming a new mom?

How breastfeeding has become like breathing. I used to think I would be freaked out when I’m out in public, but Kamar and I take the boys with us to dinner, and I just throw on my little cape thingy, and I don’t miss a beat.

Are John and Michael on the same eating/sleeping schedule?

They are definitely on the same schedule during the day, but nighttime is a little hit and miss … we’re getting there though. They sleep in side by side cribs.

How did you decorate their nursery?

The nursery is such a beautiful, calm oasis. It’s a lot of blue and pale green — it has a vintagey feel that this amazing woman, Leah Ash from Silk Events, helped put together. She gave our dark oak cribs to an amazing artisan named Ziggy the Hipster, and he refinished them in a gorgeous rustic blue. He also made us geometric-shaped hanging bookshelves, and we filled them with books and stuffed animals. We had these delicious, zany ikat print drapes custom-made that just make the room come alive.

I want the boys to be dazzled and to daydream, and their room is definitely the place for that.

Can you tell that the twins have different personalities yet?

Definitely. Michael is full of buzzy energy and can barely contain himself. John is my zen Buddha boy. Very observant and mellow. He’s always looking at Michael like, “Bro, could you calm yourself, please?

Have you mixed them up at all?

They are fraternal, and Michael is bigger than John, but there are times when they sort of meld into each other — definitely hard to tell them apart on the baby monitor at night!

Has Jennifer Lopez given you any parenting advice?

Last time I saw her, she just hugged me and said, “Hang on tight, girl, you’re in for the ride of your life.

Congrats Sherri and Kamar! Catch Saum in The Fosters on Mondays at 9 p.m. ET on ABC Family
