Neve Campbell got plenty of practice being a part of a family on Party of Five — but, unfortunately, not much motherhood experience.

“Our parents were dead [on the show] … Party of Five was good for family values. In that sense, it taught me a few things,” Campbell, 40, told PEOPLE at Monday’s premiere of Third Person in Los Angeles.

Any advice Campbell picked up along the way is being put to good use: The actress and JJ Feild welcomed son Caspian in 2012. And, according to the first-time mom, her toddler is keeping her on her toes.

“He’s talking a lot more,” she says of her son, who turns 2 next month. “The word of choice is no right now.”

But despite the daily challenges, Campbell can’t get enough of her baby boy. “There’s so much that’s so beautiful,” she shares. “Waking up to him every morning with that smile and innocence and creative energy is beautiful.”
