After hitting it off on their first date last December, Jennie Garth didn’t drag her heels before introducing new beau, actor Dave Abrams, to her three daughters — Luca, 18, Lola, 12, and Fiona, 8.

“It was a big decision on my part, but I said, ‘I really like this guy and he really likes me and if we think we have a future together, I need to introduce him to my life as soon as possible,’ ” the actress, 43, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

She adds, “I threw him in 100 percent and he fit in without missing a beat.”

“I’ve always wanted kids,” says the Virginia-raised Abrams, 34, who worked hard to ease his way into a blended family and embraced the prospect of being a stepdad.

“My kids had a sleepover last week at [Jennie’s] house. It was like full circle.”

Spelling is mom to Liam, 7, Stella, 6, Hattie, 2½, and Finn, 22 months, while Garth is mom to daughters Luca, 17 on Sunday, Lola, 11, and Fiona, 7½, which means there’s always plenty to talk about.
