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.”

Ask Jennifer Lopez what role she most cherishes and the answer’s a no-brainer: being a mom.

“Kids make you believe in all kinds of things, like how anything is possible,” The Boy Next Door star – and mother to 6-year-old twinsMax and Emme — tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story.

Which is why she’d be thrilled to add to her brood, even at age 45. “I don’t know if it’s in the cards for me because of my age, but I would love to have another baby, to be blessed one more time,” says Lopez, who is currently single.

Devious Maids star Dania Ramirez is determined that her twins, Gaia Jissel and John Aether, grow up to be bilingual — and luckily her family is completely on board.

“My cousin Yoli is here from Mexico, and she’s been helping me with the kids since the very start. She only speaks Spanish to the babies,” Ramirez, 35, told PEOPLE at the L.A. Art Show Opening Night, benefitting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, in downtown Los Angeles.

“We just started reading them books in Spanish as well. Just trying to tell them all the stories in English and Spanish so they can be fluent,” she says.

While her 1-year-olds aren’t showing off their foreign language skills quite yet, Ramirez sees her efforts paying off. “I have everyone speaking to them in Spanish [so] I think they might understand it a little better right now,” she explains.

Michael Strahan has some impressively ambitious children.

“They already know what they want to do with their lives, which I am amazed at because, at their age, I had no idea what I was going to do,” Strahan tells PEOPLE about his children.

The father of four — Tanita, 23, Michael Jr., 20, and 10-year-old twins Isabella and Sophia — foresees futures in the fashion merchandising and psychology fields for his kids.

“[My girls are] big time into animals,” Strahan, 43, says. “We have two dogs — they also foster dogs — they have nine cats, three horses, and [every] time I see them I’m at some fundraiser to help raise money for some local shelter.”

He adds, “They’re great kids with great hearts.”
