For new parents, finding time to go on dates is pretty difficult with a baby around.
In the new issue of Life & Style, Unforgettable star Poppy Montgomery reveals that her and her husband, Shawn Sanford, have come up with a way to make sure they spend some quality time together.
"We had [a date] last night. We sat on the roof of our building and just talked and looked at all the city skyline, which is pretty romantic," she told Life & Style at an event held at CitiField [Mets baseball stadium] in Queens, N.Y. on Aug. 3. "And it was a really nice night last night [the weather]. It's not so much a date night as date moments. It's like, 'You want to steal half an hour and go on the roof and have wine and have a date moment?' So we do that right now, because our schedules... He works for Microsoft and we're between Seattle, New York and LA all the time with four kids. And a grueling work schedule."

But they don't mind those quick moments -- they're grateful for them.
"Yeah, we're like 'Look at that — we get a half hour. Let's go to bed — have to be up at 5 a.m.," she explained.
Luckily, their 3-month-old is a great baby.
"She gets the least attention!" said the 38-year-old, who's mom to son Jackson, 5. Shawn also has two children from a previous relationship. "It's the second baby thing. She's mellow! She sleeps through the night. It's the [other children]s — they're the wild ones."
She added, "She has an extremely organized nanny. Jackson didn't sleep through the night until he was 19 months, which meant I didn't sleep for two years. But Violet is a whole different baby — she's very zen. She's a fat baby! She's got those like rubber bands are her arms and legs. Jackson was not like that and she sleeps really solid."
Poppy shared that this time around has been a lot different for her as a mother. "The first baby you worry and stress about everything being done right," she said. "The second, you're like, 'Sorry kid — roll with it!" Because there are other kids around and work and all that stuff."
