Twilight fans may swoon over Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner – but Jennie Garth has the hots for another vamp: Her husband Peter Facinelli, who plays Carlisle Cullen in the film series.

"I always see him as really foxy," Garth told PEOPLE about her heartthrob husband at the Style n' Smile event on Thursday in New York City. "I've always thought, 'Wow, I'm super lucky.' He's a babe."

Even after 15 years together, their relationship remains strong – and they have passed their good genes on to their three daughters Luca, 13 Lola, 7 and Fiona, 4.

But that's not all they have passed on. Garth says that although her kids are exposed to Hollywood life – and beauty expectations – she tries to make sure her kids are confident and have a positive self-image.

"My mom really instilled in me that I'm beautiful and I can do anything, and I echo that now with my own girls," says Garth.

She also leads by example, showing her girls that it's okay to be silly as long as you feel comfortable with yourself. With years as a teen star under her belt, the former Beverley Hills, 90210 star doesn't let gossip or fame keep her from being fun or wacky.

"This is me, take it or leave it," says Garth. "And I hope that by example, I might be showing my girls that it's all fun."
