Chris O'Donnell Has Five Kids and No Nanny!


NCIS: Los Angeles star Chris O’Donnell, who graces the June issue of Redbook magazine with his children, indicates he purposely dialed down his movie career to make room for family first.

“I was being offered these huge films that would have taken my career to a different level, and I decided to put on the brakes. I knew if I continued on that track, I probably wouldn’t have gotten married,” O’Donnell told the magazine.

Now celebrating his 13th anniversary with wife Caroline, the couple has five kids— Lily Anne, 10½, Christopher ‘Chip’ Eugene, 9½,Charles McHugh, 6½, Finley, 4, and Maeve Frances, 2.

O’Donnell joked about tending to the needs of their youngest:

“Maeve starts crying at 6:45 a.m. and [we will] start kicking each other under the sheets: ‘Maeve is crying. Get her,'” O’Donnell, 39, laughs.

“Or you’ll do that fake pretend sleep, where as soon as the other person gets up, you’ll say, ‘Oh, are you going to get her? I’ll stay here then. I didn’t even hear her.'”

Well, why not just send in the nanny? They don’t have one!
