"Our kids are becoming friends, which is really cool," Spelling told the magazine. "My kids had a sleepover last week at [McCarthy's] house. It was like full circle."
"We share stories every day," Garth revealed. "I love and respect her as a mother and she's doing a great job."
"I try to be not cool," the actress added of her own parenting. "I'm the mom with the tattoos. My kids admire the fact that I am kind of edgy personally and they actually try to keep me in line."
Spelling said her children are too young to "know that [she's] not cool anymore," but mentioned her children are becoming more and more like her.
"Liam's definitely stubborn like me," she shared. "He's creative and passionate like me [and] holds in his feelings like me. [6-year-old daughter] Stella does the same. We're best friends. [2-year-old daughter] Hattie uses her hands like me because I talk with my hands. [22-month-old son] Finn and I have a really special bond and he looks a lot like me when I was a baby."
"Mystery Girls" stars Garth and Spelling as former television detectives who reunite to solve a real-life mystery. The series premiered on June 25, and airs Wednesdays at 8:30 p.m. ET on ABC.
