Although she weighed in at 190 pounds shortly before delivering her twin daughters Eden and Savannah Mahoney, 2, actress Marcia Cross has done an admirable job of returning to pre-baby form. The 46-year-old Desperate Housewives star adhered to an exercise regimen in the weeks and months postpartum, but those days are long gone; Between the demands of work and and the demands of caring for two toddlers, Marcia says she “doesn’t have any time” to work out. “They just turned two….it went faster than fast,” she said during a Tuesday appearance on Live with Regis & Kelly.

The girls do a good job of keeping their mom on her toes, however, accompanying Marcia to the set so frequently they’ve even begun making some very specific requests! “Already, at two, my little one said ‘Mommy, I want to go to craft [services],'” she shared. After they’ve had their fill of treats the girls will often retire to Marcia’s trailer, where a whole new round of fun begins! Said Marcia,

“I just take all my jewelry out and they love that. They put it on and run around. They’re just happy to go to Mama’s trailer…And all the jewelry is fake, so that’s good.”

They’re growing up in more ways than one! Marcia went on to reveal that she recently marked the girls’ second birthdays with a small butterfly-themed party, but it apparently wasn’t small enough for the guests of honor! “The next morning, one of them said to me, ‘Mama, too many people at the party,” she laughed. “I was like, ‘I got it wrong, already, and they’re only two!'”

Eden and Savannah are Marcia’s children with husband Tom Mahoney.

Wow, what advanced verbal skills! She must be so proud! I love Savannah’s dimples! Being a non-identical female twin myself these girls are one of my favourites.
