Between working long hours on the Grey’s Anatomy set and husband Nathan West’s busy schedule, actress Chyler Leigh knows when it’s time to hire help to raise her three children: Noah, 7, Taelyn, 4, and Anniston, 22 months.
“We just had to hire a second nanny, two of our kids are special needs, so it’s been a bit challenging for my husband and I,” Chyler, 28, tells PARADE.
“He’s working as well, he produces, and between the workload and trying to take time for my husband and I to actually get out and do something together, it takes a village. I’m lucky if I get to sit down at some point during the day.”
Chyler is grateful for the help, and for the support from co-star and fellow mom Ellen Pompeo.
“Oh my gosh, we’re constantly talking about kids. It’s a perpetual conversation. It’s literally all we talk about,” Chyler says. “We swap stories and pictures and we laugh a lot. When you start to see the best and worst qualities of yourself personified in a little human being, it makes for some really interesting and hysterical conversation.”
