Sarah Michelle Gellar recently explained why she waited so long to start a family with her husband, Freddie Prinze Jr.
“I always say, the minute you start dating someone, people ask, ‘When are you getting engaged?’ And the minute you get engaged, they ask, ‘When are you getting married?’ ” Sarah Michelle told People magazine. “And then the minute you get married, they ask, ‘When are you having a baby?’ ”
Sarah Michelle, 32, and Freddie Prinze Jr., 33, waited seven years before welcoming their daughter, Charlotte Grace, on September 19th.
“Becoming a parent is the most selfless act, and you need to be at a point in your life where you can give up anything and everything for a child,” Sarah Michelle said of waiting to start a family. “I don’t know if you know how to do that when you’re in your 20s.”
Her husband agreed: “I’m so happy we didn’t have kids in our 20s – I just didn’t know a thing. You have so much more patience in your 30s, and I feel like I appreciate this so much more.”
Charlotte, according to her mom and dad, was well worth the wait. “Every day I look at her and I am in awe,” said Sarah Michelle. And Sarah Michelle knows the question that she will now be asked. “The minute you have a baby, everyone asks, ‘When are you going to have another one?’ ”
