Sarah Michelle Gellar‘s son Rocky James will celebrate his first birthday in September, the same month daughter Charlotte Grace turns 4, but the actress only recently underwent an important rite of passage as the mother of two young children.
“The latest milestone I hit is flying with two children. It was my first flight with both children at the same time,” she tells PEOPLE, happily adding it went well. “I think that nobody on the flight would complain. I think that they were all very happy. I didn’t poll them afterward, but I was tempted.”
Luckily, both kids were easily occupied during the flight, either sleeping or playing with each other.
“[Charlotte] pretended to be the pilot,” Gellar, 36, says. “She told everyone to sit in their seats and buckle their seatbelts constantly, which was pretty funny. Whenever the light went on, she decided that she had to tell everyone just in case.”
