Max Greenfield Is a Proud Dad to 2 Kids: Meet Lilly and Ozzie
Although Max Greenfield’s “New Girl” character, Schmidt, has just one daughter (named after Ruth Bader Ginsburg!), in real life, the actor shares two kids with his wife, Tess Sanchez Greenfield, who works as a casting director. The duo got married in 2008 and have since welcomed a daughter, Lilly, and a son, Ozzie. Tess frequently shares photos of their squad on social media, and Max has taken to TikTok quite a few times to share sweet videos with his kids (including a deeply iconic dance with Lilly to Olivia Rodrigo‘s “Get Him Back”).
Max and Tess opened up about their family during a September 2021 interview with Parents magazine. Max revealed that he didn’t feel ready to be a dad when Tess got pregnant with Lilly, joking, “You’re a psychopath if you’re about to have your first child and you’re like, ‘I’m ready for this!’ But after Lilly, I knew I wanted a second. I was an only child, and I wanted her to have a sibling.”
Max also says his kids’ friends are not impressed by his “New Girl” tenure. “Maybe for half a second,” he told Yahoo in April. “And then they meet me and they’re like, ‘OK.'”
