“When I’m out trying to get stuff done other people are like, ‘Oh my God! You’re pregnant,’” the Grey’s Anatomy star tells PEOPLE Saturday at the launch of Diane Von Furstenberg’s GapKids + DVF collection at The Grove in Los Angeles.
“I’ll look down [shocked, like], ‘Yes! Yes I am!’”
With two children at home, Capshaw, 35, says she is not as focused on the “day-to-day of being pregnant” this time around.
“During the first pregnancy you’re so concentrated. It’s all exciting and new and it seems like the most interminable 10 months of your life,” she says of expecting son Luke Hudson, 4½.
“The second one goes by a little faster because you’ve got the first one to take care of,” Capshaw explains of her second pregnancy with daughter Eve Augusta, 16 months.
“With this third one, I woke up and I was six months pregnant,” she laughs. “I’m like, ‘What happened?!’”
While she’s still surprised by her belly, Capshaw and her husband, The Honest Company‘s Christopher Gavigan, expect to have two great helpers when their third child arrives this summer.
“My little boy is the best big brother in the world,” she says. “And my little girl has no idea what is going on but when you say, ‘Where is the baby?’ she knows and gives it a kiss.”
Jokes Capshaw: “That’ll last until the baby comes and then she’ll be like, ‘Get out of my way.’”
