Actress Sarah Jane Morris and Rooner drummer husband, Ned Brower, welcomed their first child, Emmett Andrew, back in January.
Excited about their new family member, the couple realized it wasn’t as easy it keep their friends.
“Since having the baby, I think our social activities happen in the daytime a lot more,” Morris, 33, reveals in The Nest‘s summer issue (via PEOPLE).
“One thing I’ve found is it’s very isolating in the beginning. It’s hard to get out and, you know, people are pretty quick to come and help — but after a couple of months, people stop bringing dinners. The phone stops ringing quite as much.”
Out with the old and in with the new, after a series of playdates, Sarah realized she has a new world of friends — fellow moms.
“I’ve started to make a lot of friends in the neighborhood, because some other couples here have babies too and are our age,” he explains. “It’s funny how that creates a quick bond with people — because your kids become such a focal point of your life, so it’s a little more challenging to hang out with friends that don’t have kids.”
Even with the presented challenges, the couple is totally in love with their “big, blue eyes, blond hair and big lips” boy – and Father Brower can’t wait for his baby to “fully” develop.
“I’m excited to see him develop ‘a look,’” he shares. “So far, he’s got great features and a great personality — so I think he’s in great shape.”
But don’t get too carried away there papa, mama Sarah isn’t hoping that her son be exactly like his father. She admits,
“I would say, I’d hope that he not be a drummer. It’s a very loud, cumbersome, unromantic instrument,” she laughs. “It’s not like, ‘Hey babe, I wrote you this song on the drums’ ever happens.”
