At almost a year old, Ed Sanders' triplets have personality to spare: "Scarlette is the tough one, Azure's calm, and Lucia's the lady," says Sanders, 32, the carpenter cohost of ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, whose fifth season wraps May 18. Born six weeks early at about 4 lbs. each—"their heads were the size of pacifiers," says Ed's wife, Gioia, 36—the girls spent their first few weeks in the NICU but are now fine. Next up: their own much-needed home makeover. The family, including son Max, 5, plan to move from their two-bedroom condo to a 5,500-sq.-ft. home they're building in Claremont, Calif. Says Sanders: "I wanted seven bedrooms, and now that's what we need!"
