‘Baby Daddy’ Star Chelsea Kane: I’m Not Ready to Become A Mom
“I’m not ready to become a mother,” Kane — who is dating former One Tree Hill actor Stephen Colletti – told Celebuzz in a recent interview.
“And I know doing this show makes parenting look really easy,” she added. “When they cry, we get to hand them off to their mom. I’m sure when I have one of my own, I’ll be like, ‘Wait, where’s the person to change the baby?'”
On the show, which premiered in June, Kane plays Riley, the next door neighbor and close friend of Ben’s (Jean-Luc Bilodeau) whom she’s been in love with since they were both little.
The perky 23-year-old blonde is a natural in the role; however, as she admitted to Celebuzz, she had very little experience with kids before she got the gig. Scratch that — she had no experience at all.
“I had actually never held a baby before this show,” she said. “I didn’t tell anyone because I didn’t want to lose the part or freak anyone out or freak the real mom out!”
Naturally, Kane’s secret didn’t stay one for too long.
“The producers caught on when they saw the look of sheer terror on my face whenever they brought the kids out,” she quipped. “It’s been a real fun learning curve for me. On camera, I’m supposed to be the one who has it all together, so hopefully you don’t see that I’m terrified in the first couple of episodes.”
A Phoenix native, Kane got her first big break on the Disney Channel sitcom Jonas, opposite the Jonas Brothers.
The gig led to a stint on Dancing With the Stars Season 12, on which she finished third with partner Mark Ballas.
After Dancing ended, Kane said she and a group of friends celebrated by flying down to Mexico.
“I told [my friends] that we’re going on a beach vacation, because I’m never going to feel this good in a bikini again,” she said. “So we’re going and we’re going to take lots of pictures. I wore that bikini everywhere!”
Kane may not miss the grueling rehearsal sessions that came with Dancing; however she does miss her show diet, which precluded — wait for it — nothing.
“That was a blast, to have donuts for breakfast and dessert with every meal. You’d bring it all off almost immediately. I do miss being able to eat whatever you want at any time.”
Baby Daddy airs Wednesday night at 8:30/7:30C on ABC Family. For more on the show, visit its official website.
