Disney’s Cheaper By the Dozen follows Zoey and Paul Baker (Gabrielle Union and Zach Braff respectively) as they navigate life with their blended and extended families.
Zoey has two children from a previous relationship, DJ (Andre Robinson) and Deja (Journee Brown). Paul has three kids, two biological – Ella (Kylie Rogers) and Harley (Caylee Blosenski), and a young boy they adopted after his parents died in a fatal crash, Haresh (Aryan Simhadri). The ‘they’ in question are Paul and his ex-wife Kate (Erika Christensen) with whom Paul still maintains a friendship, or at the very least, Kate has a very comfortable friendship with his couch.
Finally, there are Paul and Zoey’s two sets of twins: Luca and Luna (Leo Abelo Perry and Mikal-Michelle Harris) and Bailey and Bronx (Christian Cote and Sebastian Cote).
The Bakers all live together with their two dogs, Bark Obama and Joe Bite ‘em (gave me a good chuckle!), and Kate comes by (and stays by) often to help with the kids while everyone goes to work. Work is “Bakers Breakfast”, a restaurant run by Paul and Zoey with help from the kids. Add in Dom (Timon Kyle Durrett) as Zoey’s ex-husband and Cousin Seth (Luke Prael), Paul’s wayward nephew, and what you have is an overstuffed house full of chaotic love.
