Chyler Leigh may play a young single doctor on Grey’s Anatomy, but in real life, the mom-of-three is far from it. The busy actress is mom to son Noah, 6, and daughters Taelyn, 3, and Anniston, 1, with husband of almost eight-years, Nathan West. In an interview with WebMD, the actress dished on why she feels like “the oldest 27-year-old on the planet,” and how she balance it all.
On balancing work & home: “Nathan and I sit down on the weekends, and we go through all our appointments and whatever we have to get done that week, and plan our strategy. If I’m available in the morning one day and he is in the afternoon, then I’ll take the kids to school that day. There will always be the occasional wrench thrown in, but when you plan ahead, you’re better able to handle stuff like that.”
On having alone-time with her husband: “Even though you’re parents, you’re still a couple. You need to take time and be together, talk about your dreams and plans, and just be in love.”
