Kyra Sedgwick Faces The Empty Nest

Kyra Sedgwick covers the July/August issue of More. The 44-year-old mother of two – son Travis, 21, and daughter Sosie, 18 – talks about coming to terms with her weight and dishes on her kids with husband of 22 years, Kevin Bacon.

On conceiving Travis on their honeymoon: “We were like, Let’s just not use birth control. I didn’t think it was going to happen so fast. I got pregnant in two weeks.”

On becoming an empty-nester: “It’s like, you’ve had this job forever, it’s the job you always wanted to do, and you were pretty good at it. Then you get fired for no reason!”
