Sarah Chalke’s ‘Genius’ Son Loves Bananas

It’s been the best year of Sarah Chalke’s life — all thanks to her son Charlie Rhodes, 13 months.

“I love being a mom,” the Mad Love star, 34, told PEOPLE at the show’s press junket on Monday

Calling him “the most stunning person on the planet,” Chalke talked about showing off all of Charlie’s milestones on set.

“The first time he ate a banana, I took a video and showed everyone like, ‘He’s such a genius! He’s eating a banana!’” she jokes.

And though she’s been under pressures as a new working mom, the actress says she’s learned balance is key.

“When you’re a working mom, it’s like you want to do this 100 percent, and you want to do this 100 percent,” she says. “You have to kind of learn what the give and takes are.”

One thing that helps? “Having a cast that will put up with looking at 9000 pictures of Charlie on a daily basis,” she laughs.

Funny, I heard a radio commercial for some talk show that was having the entire cast of Roseann on (Oprah? Can’t recall…) and I remembered wondering if both Beckys would be on and if it would just be one, hoping it was the better Becky, Sarah Chalke! haha

@ blessedwithboys – Becky #2 (Sarah Chalke) was never believable as the child of Roseanne and Dan – She was way too gorgeous! lol

Love Sarah Chalke – Glad to gear she is enjoying motherhood :-)

Sarah looks beautiful and I’m happy to hear she enjoys being a mom. I really like her son’s name. I bet he’s absolutely adorable.

"We weren't trying to have kids. We left it up to fate. I knew there was a possibility, but I was really excited. Even if you are trying, just to see a positive result is shocking!"
