As many Hollywood ladies are taking the plunge in becoming a single mother (intentional or not), Sopranos star Edie Falco focuses on the rewards of being a single and working mother.

“I’m juggling a lot and working long hours,” Falco, mom to kids Anderson, 7, and Macy, 3, says, but tells WorkingMother.com that it’s worth all the hard work.

“My work is a huge part of who I am. It’s how I experience the world, and it’s what makes me feel fulfilled,” Edie, 48, says. “As a single mom, I’m juggling a lot and working long hours. Yes, it costs them a little, but what my children get in return is a mother who is energized and content. It helps us to bring out the best in each other, which is what a family should do.”

Are you a single mom? Do you find work to be rewarding? Tell us your story!
