Sarah Michelle Gellar: Daughter Charlotte Doesn't Know I'm an Actress
Little Charlotte Prinze isn't aware -- unlike the many legions of Buffy fans -- that mom Sarah Michelle Gellar is an actress. Instead, Gellar's 3-year-old with husband Freddie Prinze, Jr. just thinks the 36-year-old lives a life of glamorous leisure.
"I think my daughter thinks I get my hair done for a living and was very concerned, because I left with wet hair today, and she was very concerned that I wasn't doing my job because my hair wasn't dry," Gellar told Us Weekly during a Television Critics Association event in Pasadena, Calif., promoting her new CBS comedy The Crazy Ones.

Charlotte's baby brother, Rocky, Gellar says, is equally as oblivious. Jokes the actress of her son: "He's 10 months old and I'm lucky he knows who I am!"
As she preps for her return to TV on The Crazy Ones this fall -- where she'll appear on CBS' single-camera comedy as Robin Williams' daughter -- busy working mom Gellar can't help but relish time at home with her kids.
Raising her children with husband of 10 years in California provides the actress a chance to stay active with her family. One bonding activity she and Charlotte especially enjoy? Gardening! "We have a garden and we grow everything ourselves and then make juices," Gellar explained. As a result of their homegrown hobby, the entire family is eating healthier. "Charlotte loves kale juice and kale chips, so we try to make [meal planning] a family thing!"
