The proud dad says that besides being outnumbered by women in his family, he also often feels out of depth.

"They're a little better read than I am," he admits. "They're little college graduates. And they're more academic. And sometimes I'm like, 'Wow.' I'm really impressed with how intelligent and interested they are in things. But most importantly, I'm just happy that they're kind."

The actor left Grey's Anatomy after 15 years in 2020 and addressed his difficult decision to leave the beloved Shondaland show, revealing what he wanted to pursue next.

“I’m very excited [for this new chapter],” the actor told Page Six while leaving Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles at the time. “Of course [it was a hard decision]. Anywhere that you spend 15 years, it’s a big chunk of your life.”

When asked what he’s looking forward to, Chambers responded, “Life, family, love, and friendships.”
