The O.C. star also likes when potential suitors express interest in learning more about her daughter. “I was talking to this guy a few months back,” she recalled. “Anytime I would bring my daughter up, he would never pursue the question or ask more about her. It was a red flag because anyone that you’re going to get involved with, if you have a kid, they have to be all about the kid.”

Rachel takes pride in keeping photos of her daughter off social media and tries to dodge the paparazzi whenever she can. “The kids don’t choose to be in the limelight, you know, themselves," the Hart of Dixie alum said. When they’re old enough and they want to pursue it and that’s what they do then that’s fine. But it’s not like I want to promote my kid or put her out there.”

Even though dating can be difficult, especially with kids, Rachel makes light of her mom status. “Kids are great for an excuse for anything,” she said.

She added, “If you don’t want to do something, you don’t ever have to lie because like you have kids. You can leave early, you can not go and you can go to bed at 9 and it’s awesome.”
