How Do Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli Make Family Dinners Work? Skype!

Jennie Garth and husband Peter Facinelli have dinner together with their three daughters every night -- even when he's on location filming the Twilight movies. How do they do it?

"If my husband is across the country shooting something, we'll Skype him in to eat with us," 90210 star Garth told Popeater on Friday.

Calling the family dinner "a lost art," Garth advocated that families need that time to stay close. "Families need to sit down and connect on that level or throw food at each other if they're mad. It's about being together as a unit."

And even though Facinelli can't eat Garth's cooking from his computer screen, he's still the dinnertime disciplinarian: "My husband is the one who tells our daughters, 'You're not leaving this table until you eat your vegetables.' He's that kind of dad."

Garth, 37, and Facinelli, 36, have three children: Luca Bella (12), Lola Ray (7), and Fiona Eve (3). Garth, who's promoting her new healthy-eating-focused web series Garden Party, claims that the future holds even more children for the gorgeous pair: "I'm not done. My husband may be done, but we'll see who will win that battle. I love kids and would love having a big family."
