Actor Chris O’Donnell, 39, always thought he’d have five children, but after welcoming his fourth child with wife Carolina Fentress, he decided that four was good enough.
“I always wanted five children,” he recently explained to Michigan Avenue Magazine. “But when we got four, I was like, okay, we’re done.”
However, less than a year later the Chris and Caroline were taken by surprise when they learned they were expecting baby no. 5!
“Five was the only time we were really surprised,” admits Chris. “All along the way we were strategic about what we were doing and then, uh, a little miscommunication there.”
Strategy or not, the proud dad has nothing but love for 2-year-old Maeve Frances: “We’ve got five and we couldn’t be happier because [she] is such a cute little girl,” he says.
Chris and Caroline, who have been married since 1997, are also parents to Lily Anne, 10, Christopher ‘Chip’ Eugene, 9, Charles McHugh, 6 ½, and Finley, 3 ½.
