Twilight star Peter Facinelli and wife (and 90210 alum) Jennie Garth opened up their Hollywood home to InTouch Weekly recently, revealing a family compound that's as luxuriously appointed and sprawling as that of the Cullens' (albeit far more warm and cozy than his on-camera vampire den!).
The couple bought the 6-bedroom, 9,500-square foot estate located in a star-heavy hood that includes Sara Michelle Gellar, Jennifer Love Hewitt, and the Cyrus clan as neighbors, five years ago. The $6 million house-which boasts amenities like four indoor fireplaces (plus an additional one outdoors), a swimming pool, beautifully landscaped patios, and a kitchen fit for a professional chef-also has its own celebrity pedigree: John Ritter grew up there, and it was designed by the same architect who created homes for Lucille Ball and Frank Sinatra too.
With its lush grounds, ample size, and elegant-but-comfy furnishings, it's the perfect place for Jennie and Peter to kick back with their three daughters, Luca, 13, Lola, 7, and Fiona, 3. And despite its fancy address, "I try to keep my kids as far away from 'Hollywood' as possible," Jennie says. "At our house, every night is game night. We also have movie nights, and love to curl up by the fireplace with popcorn. I honestly just love being home with my kids. It's so much more rewarding than any acting I've ever done." Though she hints at wanting more children-"Who knows? I could have eight more!"-in the meantime she's taking her love of kids in a professional direction, authoring a series of children's books, which are due out in February of next year.
One of their favorite family rituals? According to Jennie, it's dinnertime, and her girls' meal of choice is spaghetti ("I hide boatloads of veggies in it, and they never know," she says). And when Peter is away from home filming, "We Skype 'Daddy' into the kitchen. It's all about being a family."
