New mom Emme Rylan somehow manages to balance raising her baby girl, Dakota, her two boys, Jackson and Levi, while also starring as Lulu on GENERAL HOSPITAL! And while she is pulling it off, the actress admits that being a soap star doesn't exclude her from dealing with all the other struggles that every mom out there can relate to!
Rylan has been sharing plenty of adorable photos of little Dakota on her Instagram, but at the same time, she’s also been sharing her adventures in parenting, both good and bad! “We have been working hard at tummy time, which Dakota hates,” she admitted recently. “And finally the one time she totally rocked it was when she was trying to watch cartoons with the boys. Unbelievable. Sorry, dude! No TV for you yet!”
Of course, Rylan also has the help of her partner, Don Money, who offers all kinds of support. “I came home from my workout this morning to this sweet daddy/daughter bonding time,” the mom shared. “I love to dance and Don loves to play basketball. I am so grateful to have a partner that knows how important it is for us to support the things that make us who we are!”
And Dakota isn’t the only handful in the family, as Rylan is still raising a seven-year-old and a five-year-old at the same time! And while her sons are older, they still create their own challenges. “Finally found the trick to getting Levi to brush his teeth!” she reported. “Having his big brother do it! Jackson is going to make one heck of a good dad someday. He even changes diapers! He told me that he wants to have 100 babies… I told him that he will have to negotiate that number with his wife.”
As GH fans know, Rylan has also been reporting to work as Lulu Spencer following her maternity leave, but she’s also working out at the gym, cooking, cleaning, and even doing some crafting! Although her Etsy shop is temporarily closed while she takes a break, she is still making new items and will likely open back up eventually. Just keep checking her Instagram to see what she’s working on currently. And check out this video for more cute pics of Dakota!
Dakota is one very lucky girl because she was born into one of the best families out there. Just look at how much fun Rylan, Don, and their boys have had over the years in the gallery below! And for more on your favorite GH stars, keep reading the ABC edition of Soaps In Depth magazine!
