Her son Aden is only 10 months old, but Tamera Mowry-Housley is already wanting a second baby. In an interview with OK! magazine, the actress reveals that she's making plans for another child.

"I am planning on having a second baby. My doula says the 10-month spot is the sweet spot because I'm having so much fun with my son. He sleeps through the night; he's mobile, but not to the point where he's breaking my back," she says. "That's usually the time that people are like, 'Okay, I'm ready for No. 2.' That's where I am right now."

The 35-year-old twin added that having multiples is a lot of hard work mentally and physically, but that if she were to have twins she'd be grateful. She also shared some advice to moms who are raising twins and how to nurture each child's individuality.

"Make sure that people don't see them as one person," she says. "It starts with the parenting. Treat each one differently, because they are. What my mom did is she knew that I was a little more sensitive, and [my sister] Tia's a little more assertive. She handled us differently. She would say certain things to Tia, in disciplining her, like she would really give it to her, because Tia can handle it, and she would water it down for me."

"It's important to realize that they may look alike — or even fraternal twins, and they may have come out at the same time, but they're individuals," she adds "Treat them that way."
