Chandra Wilson and her son Michael were two of many to attend the VIP celebrity premiere of Ringling Brothers’ Circus XTREME at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Monday. The celebrity mom and her little one were ready for a day of fun as Chandra was wearing a pouch that screamed “casual.”


The Grey’s Anatomy star manages to spend quality time with her kids despite working a number of hours onset. “You can’t skip a beat if you’re trying to earn a living as an actor,” writes the star in a candid letter about her life as a working mom. “When I get off work, I still have my other job—being a mommy—and those hours are 24/7. For me, the key to balancing it all is pacing, making sure to focus on the quality of the time I have with my kids, since I don’t always have the quantity. When I walk in the door, I try to give my kids at least that first hour I’m home.”

Chandra has two daughters, Joylin and Sarina, in addition to being the proud mom of a son. The actress is best known for her role as Dr. Miranda Bailey, a.k.a. The Nazi, on the hit series Grey’s Anatomy. She has acted in a number of stage productions as well.
