While they were touched by the offer, Ginnifer said it was the logistics of her plan that caused the others some concern.
“The best friend and the husband were like, ‘Wow, that’s really sweet Ginny. Like what happens?’ And then they explained like all the logistics and I was like, ‘Look, there’s turkey basters,'” she explained. “It’s not like you’re not gonna be in the kid’s life. Like you’re in my best friend’s life.”
At the 2015 People’s Choice Awards, Ginnifer told E! that becoming a parent was “so much better” than she could’ve ever previously imagined.
“It makes me feel like acting is not at all creative,” she said, “but being a parent, anybody who’s a parent I want to like give an Oscar to.”
She also took a moment to shout out Josh for being an excellent parent and husband.
“He makes me laugh so much, and even if we squabble he makes me laugh, so I can’t even stay angry—which is kind of its own level of frustrating,” she joked. “I want to be mad!”
