Gellar: Hubby’s the chef

Sarah Michelle Gellar

Sarah Michelle Gellar has joked she “probably wouldn’t eat” if her husband couldn’t cook.

The actress is going through an extremely busy time in life, and she couldn’t do it without Freddie Prinze Jr.’s support.

“We’ve moved houses, had two children’s birthdays, we are launching [a website]. Oh, and I’m launching a small TV show you might have heard of,” Sarah told People magazine. “I have amazing help. I have my mom who lives nearby. I have my husband who is so incredibly hands-on. Thank God he can cook or I would probably never eat.”

Sarah, 36, described the many ways Freddie takes care of their children Charlotte Grace, four, and one-year-old Rocky James. The actor makes a point of only feeding the kids fresh, good food and he encourages them to get involved with family life.

“We try to make [everything] a family thing, so we’ll go to the farmer’s market and Charlotte can pick out a piece of fish,” Sarah says.

“And she and Freddie will go to the grill and she pretends to light her little grill. Actually, one of my best friends just got a pretend hibachi grill for Rocky for his first birthday so he can play on it, even though right now he can use it to stand up.”

Sarah makes sure the children understand the importance of healthy living and nutritious food. She and Freddie make it as fun as possible for the kids to eat well and be sanitary.

“You make everything something to their level,” Sarah explained. “When we wash our hands, we sing the happy birthday song and we pick whose birthday it’s going to be. We go to the farmer’s market and pick out the fresh fruits and vegetables. Charlotte now has her own garden and she grows her own vegetables and gets to eat her fruits and vegetables from there. Children are never too young to learn about health.”

Sarah is currently starring on TV show The Crazy Ones with Robin Williams.
