Ali Larter says her life is “filled to the brim” now that she has two kids at home — who just happen to be polar opposites of each other.

The mom to son Theodore Hayes, 4½, and daughter Vivienne Margaret, 7 months, has enjoyed seeing the distinction between their personalities.

“It’s amazing for me to see the difference between having a little girl and a little boy,” the actress, 39, told PEOPLE on Friday while promoting her upcoming film, The Diabolical.

“My daughter is already so observant,” she shares. “You can give her a book and she will just sit and really look through it and touch it and explore it, where my son was really like, ‘Look at me, talk to me, play with me, give me your attention.’ He is just a force of nature, and she’s just like a sweet little angel and she asks for so little.”

07/03/2015 at 01:30 PM ET

Ali Larter is too blessed to be stressed.

The 39-year-old actress — and mother to 4½-year-old son Theodore Hayes and 5-month-old daughter Vivienne Margaret — is connected with her two children and loving life more than ever.

“My son is just a rambunctious, brilliant, funny dude and my daughter is a sweet, little angel and that’s today,” Larter told PEOPLE at the PopChips BBQ for the Fire Department of New York on Wednesday.

“Tomorrow, I’ll probably have a terror and a daughter that cries all night, but today is good, so I’m celebrating today!”

Ali Larter: Juggling Two Kids Is a ‘Learning Curve’

05/20/2015 at 01:25 PM ET

As a new mom of two, Ali Larter could certainly use some of those incredible superpowers she once possessed.

Since welcoming her daughter Vivienne Margaret in January, the actress has had to divide her attention between her new baby girl and her 4-year-old son Theodore Hayes.

“I think for all moms it’s a learning curve figuring out how to do it and making sure there’s enough time for the older one,” Larter, 39, told PEOPLE at the 2015 Communities in Schools of Los Angeles Annual Gala on Monday.

“For me sometimes I just want to close the door and be with the little baby. It’s figuring out that balance and somehow trying to find some time for your husband and for work — and for yourself at the bottom of the totem pole.”

She adds, “We’re figuring it out, but my children are healthy and they’re happy and I just am feeling always super blessed and lucky for that.”

Ali Larter Steps Out 7 Weeks After Baby – and It’s ‘Nerve-Wracking’

03/11/2015 at 01:00 PM ET

Mom’s night out!

Seven weeks after welcoming her daughterAli Larter stepped out for her first event to attend the launch of Calia By Carrie Underwood in West Hollywood on Monday. But with her two children — including 4-year-old son Theodore — at home, the outing was bittersweet.

“It’s a little nerve-wracking,” she told PEOPLE, “I’m a little shaky, but I’m having a nice dinner with my girlfriends after and I think part of that’s important to be able to talk to other moms … and be in it together a little bit.”

Larter, 39, who showed off her body after baby in skinny jeans, a cream blouse and houndstooth blazer, has yet to return to her regular workout routine. Instead, the mom of two has been hitting the trails to get back in shape. “I do a lot of hiking,” she says. “For me, it’s walking and hiking and I just started to get back into my Pilates just to really firm me up again.”

She adds, “I gained 55 lbs., with my babies so I pack on the pounds and they nurse it out of me.”

Ali Larter: Why a Second Pregnancy Is a ‘Little Less Charming’

As the spokeswoman for Dole’s new nutritious Garden Soup, Ali Larter is literally the poster child for healthy eating — but when it comes to pregnancy cravings, she’s willing to break a few rules.

“I try to be healthy. I’ll eat green, but a salad is not a meal for me when I’m pregnant,” the Legends star, 38, tells PEOPLE.

Now that she’s expecting her second child this winter, Larter has been rounding out her meals by catering to a few of her cravings.

“I have allowed myself to have some pasta and all I really want is bread slathered in cheese,” the mom-to-be admits, adding pregnancy is “the one time” she eases up on her eating plan.

But besides the change in diet, the actress — who has yet to find out the sex of her baby on the way — says it’s been a completely different experience than it was when she was expecting her son, 3½-year-old Theodore Hayes.

While she’s kept busy so far into her pregnancy, launching the new TNT series Legends, Ali Larter says things are about to quiet down.

“It’s time to slow down and stop working for a second and start being with my family,” the actress, 38, told PEOPLE at the Pampers #babygotmoves event in New York City Wednesday.

Already parents to 3½-year-old son Theodore “Teddy” Hayes, Larter and husband Hayes MacArthur are expecting their second child this winter, and have no preference for a boy or a girl: “[Just] healthy babies — all we can ask for. And that’s what I pray for,” she says.
