I have a print layout with a bunch of items, two text labels among them. For the pluging I'm wrting right now I need a list with the two text labels. My initial idea was labels = QgsProject.instance().layoutManager().layouts().QgsLayoutItemLabel().currentText()

However when I try to execute my plugin I get the following python error:

AttributeError: 'list' object has no attribute 'QgsLayoutItemLabel'

Any ideas how to get a list with the text labels?

Assuming you have only one print layout active, you could use the following to get all labels and the text they contain:

labels = QgsProject.instance().layoutManager().layouts()[0].items()
for x in labels:
    if isinstance(x, QgsLayoutItemLabel):
        #To print the text inside the labels
