Peter Facinelli is well-known in Hollywood for his rugged good looks, but the actor is very much the family man. He and wife Jennie Garth (of Beverly Hills 90210 fame) have two young girls, Luca Bella, 8 1/2, and Lola Ray, 3, and will welcome their third child sometime in the late summer (Sarah’s note: Jennie previously revealed that she was due in early October).
When asked if he is secretly hoping for a boy, Peter said that a healthy baby is the most important thing. "I don’t mind having three girls because three girls are cute. I have three sisters. But if I have a boy, that’s great too."
And just how does this busy family make things work? Peter said it’s all about balance and making sure to spend time with one another. "We try to not be apart from each other too long. When I was shooting Hollow Man 2, I came back every weekend pretty much. I was coaching my daughter’s soccer team and doing the movie at the same time. Needless to say, we lost the first couple of games!"
