It's been almost six months since actress Odette Yustman (The Unborn, You Again) tied the knot with actor Dave Annable (Brothers & Sisters) and the part-Cuban actress told us how married life has been. "We're having the best time," gushed the actress. "I mean, we have our arguments, but it’s all about communication and wanting to work on it. I feel like that’s how relationships are in general, if you want to put the work in, then it’s probably going to be successful — if you have love there, and we really do!"
One thing that's been hard on the couple is their busy schedules. Annable has been busy filming his hit ABC show, Brothers & Sisters, and Yustman, who starred in several movies this year, has a new FOX series Breaking In premiering April 6th. "We’re looking to travel a little bit this summer because Dave just finished working, he doesn’t know if his show is gong to come back or not, and now I'm working, so our schedules are a little bit opposite right now."
Asked if she and Dave plan to have babies in the near future, Odette says, "He is SO ready! And my mom and his mom are so ready. They're like 'Have babies right away!'" But Odette says the timing isn't right. "I'm like, “You know what? I'm 25 years old. Everybody needs to relax," she told us with a laugh. "I'm like, 'Babe, you're gonna love playing with the kid, but I'm the one that’s going to have to feed it in the middle of the night and I'm the one that’s going to have to carry this baby. You need to just be patient man."
Still, Odette does see babies in her future. "I come from such a big family and family is the most important thing to me," says Odette. "I definitely want to have a baby before I'm 30. I definitely want to be a young mom. But I still feel a little too selfish to have a child right now, and I feel like it's good that I realize that because I want to do it when I'm absolutely ready. I want to make sure I get all the traveling and hanging out with Dave and the whole thing, and then we’ll start having babies."
