Sarah and her husband, Peter Lanfer are expecting their second child. The baby is due in December and will be a sibling to their son, Micah, 2. Sarah and Peter have been married since 2002.
In an interview with Guideposts, Sarah says that when she was expecting her first child in 2011, "My marriage was solid, I loved my job, but I was terrified, absolutely terrified, by the prospect of parenthood. What if I turned out to be an awful mom? It would be hard–if not impossible–to live up to the example set by my own parents."
Fortunately, she had her Grey's Anatomy co-star Ellen Pompeo to help her with plenty of guidance.
"I got great advice about nausea from Ellen Pompeo," Sarah told Us Weekly. "She's a wealth of information: She's done all the research and looked into every possible way of doing things."
With this new baby announcement, Sarah was quick to thank people for their well wishes.
Thank you all so much for all the well wishes! We are all so excited!!
