Scott Foley: Fatherhood Is ‘Insane’

With three kids and a new dog at home, Scott Foley is barely getting any sleep at night.

But the Scandal star says he wouldn’t want it any other way.

“Fatherhood is insane,” Foley, 42, told PEOPLE at the 46th NAACP Awards on Friday in Pasadena, California. “I’m lucky enough to have three healthy children. And I’m lucky enough to be woken up every day between 3 a.m. and 5 a.m.”

Surprising, the culprit isn’t 3-month-old son Konrad: It’s his big brother, Keller.

“My 2½-year-old, if he doesn’t ‘drop’ anything at 3 a.m., it’s a good night,” Foley said, laughing.

So, how does the actor make up for those sleepless nights? Quick naps on the Scandal set — and white lies to his wife, Marika Dominczyk, of course.

Why Is Scott Foley Hiding Under the Covers Every Morning?

Scott Foley has found his two greatest loves in life — and they both require early wakeup calls.

“At this stage of my life, what makes me happy is my passion,” the Scandal star says in the February issue of Live Happy. “That sounds so generic and broad, but I love to act, I love to tell stories and that is my passion.”

Foley’s other focus: his family of five. The actor and his wife Marika Dominczyk are parents to daughter Malina, 5, and sons Keller, 2½, and Konrad, 10 weeks.

“I love my family — my family makes me happier than anything else. I’m passionate about spending time with them, watching them grow and making them laugh,” he explains. “Those are the two passions in my life: family and work.”

For Foley, 42, the pieces all began to fall into place a decade ago.

Now that Scott Foley is a dad to three little ones, he admits giving each kid enough attention isn’t easy.

“The two older kids are a little jealous of the time we have to spend with the baby, so we’re trying to spend as much time with them as we can,” Foley told PEOPLE at Charisma’s Breakfast in Bed in Beverly Hills on Wednesday.

“Then the baby cries. You’re always going back and forth … with three, we’re outnumbered.”

Foley, 42, and wife Marika Dominczyk welcomed son Konrad three weeks ago. The baby boy joined big brother, Keller, 2½, and sister Malina, 5.

The older kids do love their new big sibling roles — especially Malina.

“She holds him. It’s so amazing,” Foley shares. “It’s really sweet.”

Some people read books, others plan their nurseries and a few enjoy a babymoon to prepare for a new addition.

Scott Foley gets a dog.

“My new motto is, ‘Just give me the mess.’ Just throw it all my way. I’ll take it, it doesn’t matter,” the Scandal star, 42, told PEOPLE at Twitter’s #TGIT premiere event for Shondaland’s ABC shows.

Although Foley is “so tired,” the actor — who is expecting his third child with wife Marika Dominczyk — admits there’s not much he can do before the delivery. “You’re never ready, especially for number three,” he says.

Instead, he packed up his brood — including daughter Malina, 4½, and son Keller, 2 — and headed to the pound to pick out a lab mix puppy. But, unfortunately, everyone’s not on board with the furry new family member.
