Poppy Montgomery



Gus Monroe Devereux Sanford

BORN: Nov. 11, 2014

Since Poppy Montgomery and her husband, Shawn Sanford, welcomed their baby boy Gus Monroe, the couple have been squeezing in sleep whenever possible. “We grab it in fits and spurts. He’s my third child, but you forget how big of a change it is with a newborn,” says the Unforgettable star, 42, who’s also mom to Violet, 20 months, and Jackson, 7 (from a previous relationship). “But [Gus] is still so little that it’s like having two and a half kids right now. He’s not running around yet.” Of course, the seasoned parents (Sanford, 44, has two other children from a previous marriage) are still getting to know their “sweet” little man. “He’s our Zen baby,” says Montgomery, adding that she’s becoming a bit more Zen herself: “What’s important is that they’re happy, healthy and strong,” she says. “Everything else is small.”
