Actress Mary Louise Parker says that motherhood is “best thing that’s happened to [her].”
“I’ll be the first to admit that it can be very hard to raise two kids, but I absolutely love it. I can’t imagine what my life would be without my children.”
Parker has a son named William Atticus, 5, with former boyfriend Billy Crudup, and a daughter named Caroline Aberash, 3, whom she adopted from Ethiopia in August 2007. Adoption was the “best decision I’ve ever made,” the actress said at the 5th Annual Worldwide Orphans benefit gala in October.
“She says, ‘I love you, Mommy’ and asks, ‘Do you love me so much?,’ ” Parker continued with joy. “She has a little bit of a speech delay; Amharic was her first language she heard. But she’s really indomitable. She’s really strong and she’s like a little warrior. She’s really amazing.”
