Adam told Ellen about his five-year-old twins, Natalia & Santino. He said the boy is much easier to entertain. But his daughter constantly demands attention, as opposed to his son, who prefers to play with his toys.

Adam works nights, and his children come to his bedroom to kiss him goodbye before heading to school each morning. He explained their differing styles to Ellen.

“He comes right in and kisses me right on the lips while I’m sleeping,” he said. “She kisses her hand and slaps me in the face with it. Let’s hope that carries into her dating years.”


Adam Carolla: Can You Change Kids Personalities

He said that they’ve had these fixed, different personalities since birth. Despite books and products that claim otherwise, he doesn’t believe he can do anything to change his kids’ personalities.

Adam even used Ellen as an example. “They are who they are,” he said. “You’re always who you were, I’m guessing,” he said. “You’re a richer version of who you were when you were in high school.”

Ellen asked if Adam treats his twins differently at all. “Are they spoiled?” she asked. “It seems like you’re not as hard on him, ‘cause you love him more.”

He had a great strategy: “I tell them that I love one of them more,” he said, “but I don’t say which one, and that’s what makes me a great parent.”
