Amanda Seyfried feels so lucky to live with her “third parent” and “nanny,” her mother, Ann.
Seyfried spoke with John Molner (CEO of Katie Couric Media, named for his wife) for a recent episode of his YouTube series Molner’s Table, where shared how her mother helps herself along with husband Thomas Sadoski with their daughter Nina, 3.
“My mom lives with us — she’s our nanny,” said Seyfried, 34. “My life is awesome because she is the third parent for us. I am so lucky — I know I am.”
“So when my daughter gets up, she either comes in our room or she goes downstairs,” she added.
“And if we’re still sleeping it’s great, ’cause she can hang out with my mom. She wakes up early.”
Seyfried and her family live in a renovated farmhouse in upstate New York, where she “recently trained” her actor husband Sadoski, 44, how to feed all the animals properly.
“These days, it’s been me waking up and going downstairs and drinking coffee and hanging out with my daughter and then Tommy feeding [the animals]. And you know what? Our family’s still together,” she laughed.
“I definitely think my marriage is even stronger,” the actress continued. “This [coronavirus pandemic] is hard for people.”
Last August, Seyfried spoke to PEOPLE about her life on the farm with Sadowski and their little one, admitting she is “lucky that there’s three parents,” including Ann. “And if three people could make a baby, that would be really great,” she quipped. “It takes a village!”
And while Seyfried would love nothing more than to expand her family, she is keeping an open mind when it comes to trying for more kids with Sadoski, whom she married in March 2017 while she was nine months pregnant with Nina.
“I want to get pregnant again, but I’m not ready just yet to have a second,” she said. “I would like my daughter to be in school and then have my own time with a new baby. But it’s so hard to plan.”
