Emily Deschanel and her sister Zooey Deschanel have more in common than just their bloodlines and on-fire careers: They have babies who are only a couple of months apart in age.

“Yeah, we called each other up!” joked the Bones star, 39, on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Monday when the host asked whether the sisters planned to have their babies so close together.

“And from different husbands, as well,” Jimmy Kimmel responded.

“Different husbands — to be clear, different husbands!” Deschanel said, noting that having a young baby around the same time as her sister is “amazing” and that they “couldn’t have planned it better.”

Will Zooey Deschanel be welcoming a new girl or a new boy this summer? She doesn’t know!

“We are going to be surprised. It’s more fun, you know? Make it into a game,” she joked Thursday on Jimmy Kimmel Live! However, the actress and fiancé Jacob Pechenik have found the biggest challenge is getting other people — like their ultrasound techs — to keep the secret.

“You’re like, ‘Don’t tell me, don’t tell me!’ The last time the technician [said], ‘Just so you know, I always use the pronoun he — it’s just my habit.’ She set it up because we were paranoid. Most people want to find out!”

Which is more difficult to decipher: forensics vocabulary or the babble of a 2½-year-old? These days, Bones star Emily Deschanel‘s favorite person to chat with is her sonHenry.

“I love this age because I can communicate with him so well and have conversations,” the actress, 37, told PEOPLE at WE tv and Paley Center’s ‘On the Beat: The Evolution of the Crime Drama Heroine’ event Thursday night in Beverly Hills.

Balancing mommy hood with nine seasons of her hit show has been “hard,” but Deschanel’s been enjoying her time off this summer “to hang out with my son, put him to bed, and cuddle — do all of the fun things I love doing with him.”
