The same month, at the Emmys, the two-time Emmy winner told E!'s Ryan Searest, "I'm trying to read as much as I can, and prep as much as I can. But there's only so much you can do because each baby is super individual and totally their own person ... [I'm] very, very excited. It's the big, crazy calm before the ridiculous storm."

The babies were reportedly born with the help of a surrogate.
