Jenna Fischer Opens Up About Wanting Kids

The Office star Jenna Fischer graces REDBOOK‘s March cover and opens up about marriage, finding the perfect life partner and her hopes to become a mommy one day.

On her niece Cecelia and wanting kids of her own: “I already wanted kids, but even more so now. When Cecelia was 3 weeks old, Pam was on maternity leave, so I had a whole week off to spend with her. I took charge of the night feedings. It was so awesome: Every night at 9:30, I’d say, ‘You guys go to sleep now.’ I wanted CeCe all to myself. We really bonded.”

On how her perspective of ‘the one’ changed: “After my divorce, someone said to me, “Finding love is not as hard as picking the right person to spend the rest of your life with.” It was Paul Lieberstein, the executive producer of The Office; he also plays Toby on the show. I held on to that advice when I was searching. I’d start to fall for someone and think, But that’s not a good match. The fluttery feelings aren’t enough. When I was younger, I thought you married the person you fell in love with the most. But as [my ex-husband and I] learned what we wanted, I realized there was a whole other set of criteria. You have to ask, Do we have the same goals?”

    Jenna’s one of my favorite celebs! I love her so much. And I’m thinking we’ll be hearing a pregnancy announcement by the end of the year. (And they’ll probably write it in so Jim and Pam have another baby!)
