Kristin Davis carried her daughter, Gemma, with pride to her ballet class. Dolled up in her tutu, Gemma looked ready to take on any dance challenge that might be thrown her way – she even held up a finger to let the world know she was #1.
Gemma was adopted by the actress in 2011, and since then, Kristin says she has been in “mommy mode.” The single working mother admits that she is finding that remaining on-set has become a challenge, “I think, ‘I’m stuck on set and I don’t want to be stuck on set, I want to be with my daughter,’ so it’s an adjustment.” But Kristin has always been independent. The 49-year-old told Haute Living that while she didn’t necessarily plan on being single, she recalls not understanding the desire to get married, even as a young girl. Although she is open to having another relationship, she pointed out:
Previously in life, stability has not been that important to me in a relationship or a man. I had my own independence, my own stability within myself. I wasn’t looking for a man to be stable. It wasn’t in my fantasy. I was looking for adventure. I love creative people and those are the people I’ve been with. Those are the qualities I’ve been drawn to in the past. Now I have a baby and I have to put her first and think about what she needs, and stability is a huge, huge part of that. So that means those qualities would have to be important in a man, and I don’t know what that looks like, honestly.
But for now, it looks like Kristin’s got it all under control, with Gemma in one arm and an oversized bag in the other – no doubt filled with mommy and toddler necessities!
