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."Unforgettable Star Poppy Montgomery Welcomes Baby Girl
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."
