Jenna Elfman: Motherhood Makes Me Appreciate "The Goodness In Humanity"

We first fell in love with her on the hit show Dharma & Greg. Recently, Jenna Elfman wrapped filming Friends with Benefits, set to hit the big screen July 2011. Married to actor Bodhi Elfman for 15 years, the mother of two young boys – Story Elias, 3, and Easton Quinn, 9 months – opens up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about teaming up with Flip for the Do You Flip campaign, how motherhood has changed her and their upcoming holiday plans.

The 39-year-old actress says motherhood has opened her eyes – and her heart – in many ways:

It’s made me much more appreciative of the goodness in humanity. I don’t take wonderful moments, worthwhile qualities or helpful, sincere people for granted anymore.”


Married for 15 years to Bodhi Elfman, we couldn’t help but ask about their relationship secrets.

“We don’t keep secrets from each other and we work our asses off creating our marriage all the time,” Jenna says. “It’s not always easy, but it’s worth it.”

So what’s with the 12-year wait to welcome children into their happy union?

Frankly, time just crept up on us! We looked up one day and went, ‘Hey! What are we doing? We gotta make some babies!’ “

The busy mom-of-two has recently teamed up with Flip for the Do You Flip campaign. “I like Flip’s approach to the campaign and I also really love Flip cameras,” Jenna said. “I’ve had one for several years.”

Jenna goes on to describe the Flip campaign. “The whole campaign concept is really cool, playful and un-serious,” she explains. “I really like that and I like all the artists and personalities participating in the campaign.” Some of the other celebs on board are Dancing with the Stars co-host Brooke Burke and hip hop artist P. Diddy.

How can we become involved in the Flip campaign?

“You can submit your own fun Flip video clips to DoYouFlip.com,” Jenna says, and adds, “And you can also design your very own Flip video camera.”

Is the Elfman household getting all geared up for the holiday season?

It’s Easton’s first Christmas which is exciting,” the proud mama says. “We are hosting our families and having a nice, warm Christmas at home.”
