Chyler Leigh's family has been in the midst of a steady growth spurt for the past six years. But with the May 7 birth of their third child, Anniston Kae, the Grey's Anatomy star and her husband, actor Nathan West, have found that parenting gets a little bit easier with each addition to their clan.
"Going from zero to one is a huge shock," Leigh, 27, tells PEOPLE. "One to two was a little more challenging. Two to three was a bit more challenging, but once you get used to multiples you figure out how to put things together quicker. You learn how to organize. With number three coming, you get more confident as a mom. It's like calm mom, calm baby."
