When we last left the Braverman clan at the end of ParenthoodSeason 4, Kristina (Monica Potter) was declared cancer-free, Sarah (Lauren Graham) chose Hank over Mark, and Crosby and Jasmine (Dax Shepard and Joy Bryant) announced that they were expecting a baby.
Wetpaint Entertainment caught up with Joy at the People Stylewatch 3rd Annual Denim Party at Palihouse in Hollywood on September 19 and the gorgeous actress told us all about her new baby, how Crosby is adjusting, and much more.
We know there will be a bit of a time jump at the start of Season 5, and Joy — who reminded us that she doesn't have kids of her own — described baby Braverman’s birth as “slimey.”
And while Joy insists that Dax — who welcomed his first child with Kristen Bell last March — is an “awesome father,” Crosby has some trouble adjusting to the tiny new tot in the house. “It’s going to be us getting used to living together with a new baby and that whole thing,” she says.
So is the new dad giving Joy tips on how to care for a newborn? You bet! Joy reveals, “He coaches me on how to take care of things and how to do it. He knows how it goes.”
Though the stress of a new baby can be hard on a relationship, Joy seems to think Crosby and Jasmine will be just fine. “Don’t all babies bring people closer together?,” she muses.
Parenthood Season 5 premieres on September 26 at 10 p.m. ET on NBC.Reporting by Alex Foard
