Stephen Moyer has lots of experience with kids!

Anna Paquin admits it’s very convenient raising her 16-month-old twins with a husband who has lots of experience with kids.

All the jokes about the dads and the diapers, and them being useless, he’s not!” Paquin told ABC News about her husband and “True Blood” co-star Stephen Moyer.

I like poo,” Moyer joked right back.



Moyer already has two adolescent children from before the couple married in 2010, so he added that the step-kids were a great “little starter” for the new mother.

My kids have been with us a lot, so Anna already had a huge understanding of that, she’s very much part of their lives,” Moyer said.

The all-star couple spoke to ABC News as part of a new movie “Free Ride,” starring Paquin and produced by Moyer.

Moyer and Paquin are really enjoying their new twins, they said, especially after they were born a few weeks premature in 2012.

“You just do what you have to do. We weren’t the only people who have gone through that situation,” Moyer said of the babies’ rough start. “There’s loads of other people we got very close to in a similar situation.

The “Sound of Music Live” star added that the experience only brought his family closer together.

It brings you together in a sense that you can’t not do it. You have to be there and do the best you can,” he said. “I don’t think there’s any right or wrong way of it going, you just do what you can at the time.”

Now, the twins are doing great and even before they were born, Anna’s protective, mothering instincts were apparent on the set of her new film.

Moyer explained that when he visited the production for “Free Ride,” he noticed a “beautiful sense of the family unit.”

Ava, who plays [Paquin's] youngest daughter [Shell], she would sort of come over and just be next to Anna,” he said. “She becomes incredibly mothering of kids when they are on set.

It’s “such a powerful story, I think a lot of people wanted to be part of it,” Paquin said of playing a mother who turns to dealing drugs while in search of a better life for her kids.

Free Ride” is out in theaters today in New York, Los Angeles and Video on Demand, and stars Paquin, Drea de Matteo and Cam Gigandet.

Moyer-Paquin twins’ names finally revealed

Moyer-Paquin twins' names finally revealed

After many months of speculation finally official confirmation of the names of the Moyer-Paquin twin brother and sister. The little ones are called Charlie and Poppy. A strong, classic male name and a lovely flower. Excellent choices, if you’d ask me.

Stephen mentioned the babies’ names at the Tuesday night premiere of True Blood. After mentioning that Lilac, was leaving for sleep-away camp this weekend, he said that he and Anna planned on spending Father’s Day “hanging out with Charlie and Poppy.”

Apparently Anna has a little surprise planned for Father’s Day, but is not giving away anything. “I can’t tell you because that would ruin the surprise,” she laughed before adding, “I don’t know about [it being a] big surprise, but yes, there are plans.”

Alexander Skarsgård has praise for Anna & Stephen’s parenting skills

Recently Alexander Skarsgård told Life & Style all about Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer as parents and he has nothing but kind words to say about his True Blood co-stars.

“They’re doing an amazing job,” the heartthrob said at the LD Entertainment special screening of Disconnect in NYC on April 8. “We had a little promo thing in LA for True Blood and [their twins] were just beautiful. They’re bringing them to set everyday!”

Five months after giving birth, the actress showed off her incredible fit post-baby body at a Tom Ford cocktail event in Beverly Hills and even Alexander notes how great she looks.

“You’d have to ask her — I don’t know, but you’re right. She does [look insane]!” he replied when we asked him how she got back into shape so fast.

In the show, Anna’s character Sookie gets very close with vampires Eric and Bill played by Alexander and Stephen, respectively. But how does Stephen feel when Anna and Alexander have to film love scenes?

“We feel completely comfortable together. Steve and Alex are buddies,” Anna explains. “It’s nothing like, ‘Oh, hi, nice to meet you. Now let’s take off our clothes and go into the fog.’ Everyone is very respectful of each other’s boundaries…They’re all very gentlemanly about it.”
