It seems actor Chad Lowe and his wife Kim are busy preparing for the arrival of their second child – who is due sometime within the next week.
“I’m trying to bank some sleeping hours, which is a little tough,” the 44-year-old star tells PEOPLE. “I have been out buying a lot of stuff to organize [everything] we have. It is amazing how much stuff babies need. It is incredible.”
However, the most important thing on their list is preparing their 3½-year-old daughter Mabel for her special role as an imminent big sister.
“We’ve been introducing her to the concept and she seems to be very excited,” Chad says. “She knows she’s got a big job and a lot of things to teach her sibling.”
Admitting that juggling his personal and professional lives hasn’t been an easy feat, Chad reveals his secret to success when it comes to his ongoing balancing act.
“The most important thing is being present when you are with your family and not being distracted by work or outside influences,” the Pretty Little Liars star explains. “I just really try to be present in all the moments when I am with my daughter and my wife. I am really lucky because I have gotten to be [with them] a lot.”
