Edie Falco On The Rewards Of Being A Working Mom

A busy actress and a doting single mom to kids Anderson, 7, and Macy, 3, The Sopranos star Edie Falco is used to managing a very hectic schedule. The Emmy-winner admits that it's not always easy - "I’m juggling a lot and working long hours," she says - but tells WorkingMother.com that it's well worth the effort. 

"My work is a huge part of who I am. It’s how I experience the world, and it’s what makes me feel fulfilled," Edie, 48, explains. "As a single mom, I’m juggling a lot and working long hours. Yes, it costs them a little, but what my children get in return is a mother who is energized and content. It helps us to bring out the best in each other, which is what a family should do."
