Scott Foley Prepares for Third Child by Adopting Puppy
He might play killer Jake Ballard on ABC’s “Scandal,” but Scott Foley is definitely showing his softer side in real life by rescuing an adorable pup!
It was recently announced that the actor and his actress wife, Marika Dominczyk, will soon be welcoming a third child (they’re already parents to daughter Malina and son Keller).
What better way to prepare for another child and raising a family than by welcoming home a dog? As he told People, “My new motto is, ‘Just give me the mess.’ Just throw it all my way. I’ll take it, it doesn’t matter.”
Despite being “so tired,” Foley admitted he’s just hanging back before the birth. “You’re never ready, especially for number three.” When it comes to sitting and waiting, that means Foley and his children bring home an adorable lab mix puppy as their new family member.

“Her name is Frankie. My daughter is in love with her, picks her up, carries her everywhere. My son won’t step on the ground because he’s terrified of her,” Foley revealed.
He sure sounds like a great father to his two children and his new dog. “I’m so fortunate that this job affords me time to be with my kids,” he said. “I’m lucky enough to spend more time with my kids than the normal father … at least I tell my wife that when she gets mad at me.”
