Jaime Pressly: My (New) Name Is Mom

  1. My Name Is Earl's Jaime Pressly tells PEOPLE she's been prepping for a mommy role all of her life.

    "I used to rock my Cabbage Patch dolls to sleep every night when I was little," says Pressly, 29, whose son Dezi James was born May 11 in Los Angeles. "It's all I've ever wanted to do."

    Her fiancé DJ Eric Cubiche, 32, meanwhile, is still a dad in progress.

    "He never even changed a diaper before, but he's a quick learner," says Pressly, who describes Dezi as a mix of the two of them. "He has my coloring but Eric's nose and cheeks. And of course we think he's a genius."

    Pressly is getting as much time in now with 7-week-old Dezi as she can. She's back to the Earl set in August. "I know it's going to be hard," she says. "If I just go to the gym or the office for a couple of hours I miss him. Going to work will be tough."

    Meanwhile, she's savoring every minute. "We are both head over heals in love with him," she says. "We're constantly playing with him. ...He's just a joy. Smiling and easygoing. I guess that means the next will be a devil."

    Next one? "We hope so," says Pressly, who recalls advice Pamela Anderson gave her years ago. "She told me that if you have children you will never be lonely again," says Pressly. "And she is so right."

    Jaime Pressly‘s little guys have arrived!

    The Mom star gave birth to twin boys Leo and Lenon on Monday, Oct. 16, she shared on Instagram Monday alongside a photo of her newborn sons dressed in matching striped sleep sacks.

    “They’re here! Introducing our new additions, Leo and Lenon, born October 16th. #DoubleTrouble,” Pressly, 40, captioned the post.

    The boys are the first children the actress and longtime boyfriend Hamzi Hijazi have together. Pressly is also mom to 10-year-old son Dezi James from a previous relationship.

    The former My Name Is Earl star confirmed she was expecting twin boys exclusively to PEOPLE in June, saying she and Hijazi were “completely shocked” considering twins don’t run in their families.

    “This wasn’t IVF or anything like that. It was just a shock, and I’m like, ‘Doctor, that’s impossible!’ ” she said, sharing that the couple had been trying “for quite a while” to conceive.

    “I’ve always wanted three kids and the older I’m getting, I’m like, ‘Okay, maybe just one more would be nice,’ ” Pressly added. “I was getting a little sad, but it was like, ‘We’ll give you two in one. You don’t have to do another pregnancy.’ ”

    Pressly told PEOPLE in late September that she was feeling “very pregnant,” admitting that expecting a decade after her first time is “really night and day” in comparison.

    “There’s a lot more discomfort than there was with one,” said the star. “I’ve had a fairly easy pregnancy considering so many women go through so much worse, so I’ve been very, very lucky.”

    Another difference? Her sugar cravings! “I’m not a sweet-tooth person, I’m a savory, and I’ve really been craving sweets, which is unusual for me,” explained Pressly, joking about her planned “Krispy Kreme run” for later that day.
