Despite the fact that they are squirmy little tykes Marston and Brier have fallen in love with the boys. "They're just the cutest little guys. They're actually starting to be cognizant of who, where and what's going on, and they're developing their own personalities," Marston told Soap Opera Digest. "And out of all the babies [to play the role], I've enjoyed these two the most. We know when they're pooping and when they're hungry. I know when to stick a bottle in his mouth. We've become very accustomed to one another."

Moreover, the little ones are starting to talk just a little bit.

"They're saying, ‘Yeah,'" Marston adds. "They're saying, ‘Poppa,' but they don't call me that. That's what they call their grandfather. Every every month or so, we try to get the babies to talk. They're great little actors, but verbalizing dialogue right now is still a little bit beyond them."

The boys appear to havebrought out Brier's maternal instincts, as well, mostly out of necessity.

"They are these little creatures, and you can't help but to feel a maternal instinct," she says. "They are on-set with you, and if they are hungry you have to feed them, even if you are in the middle of a scene. If they're hiccupping, you have to pat them on the back. If they just ate, you have to burp them. You become their caretaker and their protection while they are on-set."
