“We’re really lucky. She comes to work and has lunch with us,” Angela, 39, tells People. “I am the only lady on our show with a child. Isn’t that interesting? Our crew and some of the other folks with kids have their kids come for lunch. It’s a very family friendly set.”
And when she does bring Isabel on set, Angela totally has the multi-tasking thing down, saying, “I’ll do “Itsy-Bitsy Spider” and talk to her. And then they’ll say, ‘And rolling,’ and I have to become Angela Martin.”
But, does Isabel realize that mommy is famous and on TV? “It’s a thing that she doesn’t quite understand, and I’m okay with that. She’s just a little kid.”
“I imagine that someday my work will be totally blasé to her. I have a friend whose dad is a brain surgeon, and I’m like, ‘Your dad is a brain surgeon! Oh my gosh!’ And he’s like, ‘Yeah, whatever.’ You know? I think your parents become like, ‘Eh, whatever’,” Angela muses.
What if her daughter decides to follow in her mom’s footsteps into Hollywood? “I’m just going to support her whatever her interests are…I just want her to be happy and feel fulfilled in whatever her choice is, and have a sense of self-worth. I just want to nurture her, in whatever that is,” says Angela.
We just love seeing these kinds of supportive, accepting and caring mothers! Bravo, Angela!
