In August, Mowry-Hardrict told PEOPLE that her daughter sometimes mistakes her twin sister and Sister, Sister costar Tamera Mowry-Housley for being mommy.

"When my daughter Cairo was looking at my sister's daughter [Ariah Talea, 5], she goes, 'Cairo?' We feel like Cairo and Ariah look alike," said Mowry-Hardrict. "And then when she looks at my sister Tamera, she'll go, 'Mama' because she thinks it's me."

"That's what it's like having a twin in the family," she joked.

Mowry-Hardrict also opened up about how her kids feel about having a famous mother. While her Cree "enjoys seeing Mommy on television," he has his preferences. For example, "he's a huge fan of Family Reunion" on Netflix — but other past projects, not so much.

"Twitches was on and he was like, 'Eh,' and changed the channel after five minutes," she recalled. "[I'm like], 'Are you freaking kidding me? That's your mother — not only your mother, your auntie! What's the problem?' "

As for Cairo, "She's the cutest thing when she sees Mommy on TV," Mowry-Hardrict said. "She goes, 'Mama, Mama, Mama.' It's so cute."
