'One Tree Hill' Star Sophia Bush Says Working With Babies Is 'The World's Best Birth Control!'

Find out why Brooke’s season nine story line has Sophia putting off motherhood!

Brooke Davis may have spent the past three years fighting to get a baby on One Tree Hill, but in real life, Sophia Bush isn’t in quite as much of a rush. HollyBaby.com caught up with Sophia on Sept. 9 at the Rebecca Taylor show during New York Fashion Week, and she told us that working with her on-set twins can get pretty exhausting. “It’s certainly the world’s best birth control to work with two eight-month-olds,” she told us. “There’s no part of me that wants to be a mom anytime soon.”

Of course, that doesn’t mean she isn’t having a ball getting to play Brooke as a mom.

“They’re amazing!” she said of the babies playing Brooke and Julian’s (Austin Nichols) twins. “One of the babies is played by our first AD’s son, who I’ve known his whole life. He just started walking last week, and it felt like one of my kids was walking. The other baby is the cutest little potato, I love him.”

She continued: “I’m a very maternal person, and I really try to be the one taking care of the babies on set. That way, I’m the one they reach for when we’re filming and they’re not distracted by the camera equipment.”

And it sounds like Sophia’s on-screen hubby Austin is slipping into the dad role pretty nicely, too.

“Austin’s sister has two kids, so he’s got two nieces and a nephew,” Sophia explained. “He’s used to it. He’s been dealing with babies for six years now with his sister. He’s A-OK.”

OK, we’re officially on cute overload for the day. Do we really have to wait until One Tree Hill returns in January to see Brooke and Julian in parent-mode?
