At the time the star and her husband had still not picked out names for their boys. "We keep bringing names up and then putting the kibosh on them. We can't decide!" she told Us. Joking, she added, "I want to look at them and go, 'You look like a ….' We'll wait and see."

As for telling the two apart? Saum quipped, "I think that they might be fraternal… So hopefully it won't be a challenge!"
