Edie Falco

In an interview with Health magazine, Edie Falco talked about starting a family after beating breast cancer. "Around February 2004 when I realized cancer wasn’t going to kill me, the answer was clear. For years I’d been waiting to start a family, but surviving cancer has a way of making you reprioritize. I was 40. And I was single. But it was time. So I began the adoption process." The 46-year-old Nurse Jackie star is now mom to son Anderson, whom she adopted in 2004, and daughter Macy, who joined the family last year.
