Edie Falco, the actress who starred in "The Sopranos" and "Nurse Jackie", has two children by adoption. Falco is a recovering alcoholic who decided to become a mother a decade after getting sober. She has a boy and a girl.
Falco is an outspoken supporter of animal rights, and she
lives a vegan lifestyle, though it's not clear if she asks her kids to adhere to the same diet. Falco has commented on how parenting is different now than it was when she was young. Whereas she remembers simply being around her parents, she admits that kids these days call the shots, with parents jumping through hoops for them.
Due to her concern for animals and her desire to see kids be mindful when it comes to animals, she encourages parents to keep their kids away from circuses. She believes it's animal abuse and wants kids to understand that when they are young.
