The Sopranos star Edie Falco was spotted toting her 4-year-old Macy through the crisp streets of New York City on Thursday (December 15).
The Nurse Jackie actress – seemingly unaffected by the snapping paps – blended in nicely with the New Yorkers in her two-toned green zip front jacket, navy blue scarf and red shoes. Little Macy looked sweet donning a warm hat, long jacket and a red purse (may be to go with mom’s shoes).
Edie is not one to pretend that balancing work and motherhood is an easy task and she is also the first one to admit she needs the help of family, friends and nannies to get the job done right.
“Working with two small children, two and five, takes a village,” she says. “No finesse involved. Nothing’s perfect. I have a surrogate family. Friends with no kids who lend a hand plus a number of nannies since the babies were born. When I miss them I miss them, what can I do? I could feel guilty, but it’s a waste of time. I used to blame myself for stress. I don’t do that anymore.”
“I’m home when I’m not working. I do breakfast pancakes or cereal. I take them to school. Nannies cook or we do takeout,” she adds.
Edie is also mom to 5-year-old son Anderson.
