Sasha Alexander is soaking up the sibling bond between her two children.
“It’s really fun to watch the kids interact and fight and just provoke each other,” the Rizzoli & Isles star tells PEOPLE. “There’s a whole dynamic there that I’m sort of glad I didn’t have — but it’s really fun to watch as a parent!”
In an effort to keep the peace between her kids — Lucia Sofia, 7, and Leonardo Fortunato, 2½ — the actress is enforcing a new household rule that she hopes will deter her daughter from pushing her baby brother’s buttons.
“Lucia can be very nurturing to him, she’s a very loving and kind little girl … She can also know how to prod him exactly the way that would make him cry the whole ride home,” Alexander, 40, explains.
