Charlie Sheen is speaking out for the first time about the birth of his twin sons, Bob and Max.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the Two and a Half Men star calls his newborn fraternal twin sons, who were were born last weekend, "pretty amazing. Not a whole lot of sleep, but what parent does at this stage? There’s adrenaline, excitement, fear," he says. And even though they’re not identical, Charlie says he still struggles to tell them apart.

"I can’t tell! They’re not identical, but at this stage they’re similar enough," he admits.

Bob and Max Sheen—not exactly names you’d associate with Hollywood these days merely because they’re so….well, normal! But that’s what Charlie says he and wife Brooke Mueller specifically wanted.

"They’re very short and simple, easy to spell and remember," he says. "Bob is the same frontward and backward. I’m a fan of a short and simple name. Max was literally Nick until about a minute before he came out."

Charlie’s two daughters with ex-wife Denise Richards also have short, sweet names: Sam and Lola. The actor says the girls are thrilled to be big sisters, but that they have their own ideas about the boys’ names. "They’re insisting that they call them Bob and Duke," Sheen says.
