Emily Deschanel also teased to the magazine that the new arrival will have a huge impact on the family. It will have an impact on Christine. As a mother of two children, Deschanel has experienced the impact a second child has on a family first hand.

“It’s a very personal reason. It’s a family reason. He gets involved in something that’s very close to home and is probably the only thing that would pull him away from the tranquil life that he was leading up until that moment.”
