Edie Falco says she’s been honest with her two adopted children, Macy, 4, and Anderson, 6, on how they came into her life.
Speaking on the Anderson Cooper show – the 48-year-old actress explained, “I don’t know if they know that not every one of their friends is adopted. My son says, ‘So then the lady has the baby in her belly, and then I [say], ‘And when the baby comes out, she gives the baby to the mommy.'”
She adds, “I’m thinking I’m going to wait [to tell them] the fact that some ladies keep their babies for their own…We will get to that.”
As a single mom – the former Sopranos star knew it was time to have children.
At that time I was single and the idea to adopt came to me. I just knew at a certain point it was time to raise kids.”
She adds, “I don’t [worry] because I am really clear in my head what it’s all about. The second you are handed a newborn, it is yours. It doesn’t matter what body it came out of. I’ve never felt more strongly about anything in my life.”
