Three kids may not be enough for Melissa Joan Hart.
“I would love to have more kids,” the actress, 37, whose ABC Family sitcom Melissa and Joey returns tomorrow, tells me. “I want to have them close together. Every time I have a child, it puts me out of work for a year or two, and every time I have a child, it’s more work. I want to make sure I can give each of them good attention.”
She adds, “I would love to have four, but I can’t promise anything now.”
Even though she’s a mother of three boys—Mason, 7, Braydon, 5, and Tucker, eight months, with hubby Mark Wilkerson—she isn’t pining for a daughter.
“Girls scare me,” says Melissa, who supports the PGA Tour’s Birdies For The Brave,. “I think I’m a good ‘boy’ mom. I’ve never been a fan of pink—I don’t think l’ve ever worn pink. There would be glitter everywhere. Trying to do my hair this morning took me an hour, and all I got was a ponytail. It would scare me having a girl.”
Hm, how does she control the chaos?
“Luckily we have a nanny, and I have a wonderful, fantastic, hands-on husband,” she says. “He does everything from bath time to breakfast to everything in between.”
She continues, “My husband is my rock.”
Melissa and Joey returns to ABC Family Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET. She supports the PGA Tour’s Birdies For The Brave, which provides services including group baby showers for women whose husbands are deployed.
