Mariah Carey has collaborated with everyone from Whitney Houston to Jay Z. But her cutest featured artists are yet to come: her kids!

That’s right. Dem babies — 2½-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe — will make their recording debut on their superstar mom’s upcoming album, out in May.

“It’s a song that I wrote with Bryan-Michael Cox and Jermaine Dupri. There’s a part that Jermaine says on the song that [the kids] loved, and Monroe started to say it,” Carey told PEOPLE at the Empire State Building’s Love Above All lighting ceremony in New York City Thursday.

“I kept having to get my iPhone and record her. So I have all these different takes of her saying things, singing things. Then I’d be like, ‘This is your new ad lib — learn it!’ I have to make it fun for her.”

Sherri Saum may have wanted to keep the sexes of the twins she’s expecting a secret, but her costar Danny Nucci definitely had other plans!

While speaking to PEOPLE during the Television Critics Association press tour in January, The Fosters star revealed that Saum and her husband Kamar de los Reyes will welcome two baby boys in May.

“And Danny just outed the genders of the babies so thank you for that,” the actress, 39, exclusively tells PEOPLE with a laugh. “It’s a good place to out it though — they’re boys!”

The couple are currently “kicking around some names,” but are determined to keep their final decisions under wraps for now. “I just want to meet them first and see if the ones we’re thinking of match them. We’ll see!” the mom-to-be explains.

Sarah Jessica Parker is known for her poise and grace both onscreen and off, so it should come as no surprise teaching her kids to be polite is a top priority for this parent.

“My daughters write thank you notes, and they’re just learning to read and be able to spell,” the actress told PEOPLE of her 4-year-old twins Tabitha and Loretta, while attending Thursday’s launch of her namesake collection for Hallmark.

“It takes a significant amount of time just to do one, and they need a lot of adult supervision.”

While the girls “aren’t required to do as much” as their big brother, James Wilkie, 11, Parker adds, “eventually they will be expected to share their appreciation with someone.”

Shortly after Sherri Saum discovered she was pregnant, the actress got the surprise of a lifetime: she was expecting twins!

“Thrilled” to be having a baby together, Saum and her husband Kamar de los Reyes, who formerly starred with her on One Life to Live, went for a second ultrasound and were told some unexpected news.

“We were like, ‘Awesome — a baby!’ And then the next ultrasound the doctor said, ‘Uh … looks like there’s a freeloader in there hiding,’” The Fosters star, 39, told Access Hollywood.

“I was just in shock for about two weeks. My husband and I were like, ‘This is really happening!’”

Now five months along, the mom-to-be is anticipating the babies’ May arrival. “They say with twins they may come early, so I don’t know,” she says, adding that they know the sex of the babies but aren’t sharing.

Julie Bowen may be outnumbered by her brood of boys, but it’s a challenge she’s willing to accept — without any full-time hired help.

“We definitely go nanny-free far more than my husband would like and that started with us … on the weekends,” the Modern Family star, 43, tells PEOPLE.

“I’m not a saint and that’s not to say we have never had a scoch of help on the weekends, but we never had anyone regular.”

However, her steadfast commitment to raising her sons — 6½-year-old Oliver and 4½-year-old twins John and Gus — was not one initially shared by husband Scott Phillips.

“I felt that it was important — and I forced my husband into this line of belief — that we do have three kids and we need to know how to be with three kids,” she says.
