It was another home birth — times two! — for Sarah Shahi.

The actress, who plays former government assassin Sameen Shaw on the CBS drama Person of Interest, welcomed twins, daughter Violet Moon and son Knox Blue, on Sunday, March 1, at home in Los Angeles, a rep for Shahi tells PEOPLE exclusively.

Shahi, 35, and her husband Steve Howey, 37, who stars on the Showtime series Shameless, are also parents to 5½-year-old son William Wolf.

The Texas-bred star previously opened up about her first delivery, telling Pregnancy in 2010 about the water birth. “[He] came out into a tub of water and then my husband brought him up for air,” she said.

“I never thought I would be one of those wacky chicks who say, ‘I loved my labor,’ but I loved every part of it. It was the best day of my life.”

You’ve never seen Dot-Marie Jones like this.

The star — who recently underwent a dramatic transformation as Coach Beiste on Glee — shrinks down to teeny-tiny proportions to voice the role of a plastic doll on the March 13 episode of Disney Junior’s Doc McStuffins.

“I have three stepdaughters and tons of nieces and nephews,” Jones, 51, tells PEOPLE. “The show has some great messages for kids and is just really nurturing.”

As Coach Kay, who goes to Doc for help fixing her broken coach’s whistle, Jones got to see a Disney-fied version of herself: “She has my curly dark hair and blue eyes and freckles. It’s so cute.”

Tamera Mowry-Housley: Why I Didn’t Have to Tell Tia I Was Pregnant

03/02/2015 at 06:45 PM ET

Tamera Mowry-Housley may have been the first to get pregnant with her second child, but it was Tia Mowry-Hardict who beat her to the big reveal.

“We have this thing where we wait until eight weeks because we want to make sure everything is okay,” Mowry-Housley, 36, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

“But my sister gets it because we’re twins. She just called me and she was like, ‘Are you pregnant?’ And I said, ‘Yep, I am!’ ”

Breaking the news to her husband Adam Housley however, was much more of a surprise. The mom-to-be hid her positive pregnancy stick in her purse and let the senior news correspondent at Fox News discover the happy news on his own.

“I surprised him at work and then I gave my purse to Adam and I was like, ‘Adam, I can’t find my keys. I’m having a really hard time … Did I put them in my purse?’ ” she recalls. “Then he was looking through my purse and saw the pregnancy test.”

She adds, “Adam is always shocked and excited all at the same time. It’s quite a sight to see!”

Kelly Clarkson may be a hits machine, but when it came to naming her daughter, she admits that it didn’t take that much mental heavy lifting to conjure the unique moniker River Rose.

“We were going back and forth on what to name her,” the singer, 32, tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “And I like androgynous names.”

During one day of her pregnancy, she and husband Brandon Blackstock, 38, were relaxing at their Nashville-area home when inspiration struck.

“We live on a river, so it really wasn’t that creative,” Clarkson — whose new album Piece by Piece comes out March 3 — says with a laugh.
