Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon‘s twins, Moroccan and Monroe, are only seven months old, but according to the pop star, they’re already relatable.

“It’s so funny … there’s a picture of the two of us together and we look identical and we have the identical smile,” Carey says in a new interview special, Mariah Carey: On The Record with Fuse, which airs Sunday.

“I recognize the joy that’s in him. There’s something that was always free about me, it just got stifled as things grew in my career.”

The slimmed-down singer adds that if you walked up to her son, whom she calls “the life of the party,” he would “just smile and be your best friend.”

As for twin sister Monroe, she’s got a bright personality of her own, too.

“We have Miss Monroe Cannon – that’s what I call her, Miss Monroe,” Carey, 42, says. “She’s very dainty and she holds her own bottle. She’s Miss Independent, definitely Miss Independent.”
