According to Jennie Garth, the new 90210 series "is bringing in a whole new crop of young, beautiful people," meaning the actress doesn’t have to "worry about that so much anymore." Jennie’s worries these days are more concentrated on her three daughters — Luca Bella, 11, Lola Ray, 5 ½, and Fiona Eve, 2 next week — and living up to her title as the self-proclaimed "master multi-tasker." For the 36-year-old actress, this means finding creative ways to "hide vegetables in their food so they’re eating green food, but they don’t know it," and being "the enforcer" of the house. "I make them brush their teeth, so they think that’s strict," shares Jennie. While her daughters may consider their father, Peter Facinelli, more lenient, Jennie reveals that she was the ‘cool’ parent when the family got to meet the Jonas Brothers — but her coolness was short lived! Says Jennie,
"Whenever the Jonas Brothers come on TV, I freak out. Because they’re so cute. And, one time, we met the Jonas Brothers and I couldn’t hold it in, and my 10-year-old daughter was mortified!"
Although there are definite challenges that come along with the responsibility of motherhood, Jennie is confident in raising her three girls and knows that "there’s nothing that I can’t do." At the end of the day, Jennie says her daughters make everything special, right down to their homemade Mother Day’s Gifts. "They go to great lengths to make me presents," says Jennie, who admits that even "little scribbles on the back of my grocery list" are special gifts from her kids. Three kids and a hectic schedule certainly keeps Jennie on her toes, but one day if the opportunity arises for Jennie to be home alone, she already dreams of relaxing! "If I had 10 minutes alone in my house I would rejoice. Sing Hallelujah first. And then I would just lay on the couch. And just lay there," laughs Jennie.
