Jaime Pressly has enough earrings in her jewelry box. This year for Mother’s Day, the Mom actress has just one request for her family.
“I hope they let me leave the house,” Pressly, 40, revealed to Us Weekly and other reporters at the Mom Paley Fest in L.A. earlier this month. The My Name Is Earl alum shares 5-month-old twin boys Leo and Lenon with boyfriend Hamzi Hijazi, and Dezi, 10, with her ex Eric Calvo.
Pressly knows exactly how she would spend her free day — and night. Stop No. 1: Santa Monica hotel Shutters on the Beach with her best girlfriends. “I wouldn’t come back until the next day. That would be fantastic,” she raved. Pressly might be on to something big, so dad’s keep reading.
“The whole Mother’s Day, Father’s Day thing, it’s a joke. Because we always end up having to do stuff,” she explained. “And what a mother wants to do on Mother’s Day is not a damn thing. I don’t wanna have to cook for anybody, I don’t wanna have to feed a bottle to anyone or change a diaper. I wanna sleep in. I wanna watch Netflix and be in my sweats all day. That’s just every woman’s dream day!”
Though the CBS star needs a good night’s sleep, ideally away from the home, she could never stand being away from her infants for too long. “They’re so damn cute. Leo, we call him baby tank, he’s over 18 pounds. These children are only five months,” she said. “And then my Lennon named after John Lennon, because he was so sweet and calm in my stomach.”
Leo is a little more spirited too. “He was bouncing off walls while he was in my stomach,” Pressly laughed. “And they came out exactly like that. Leo’s loud and funny and laughs constantly. And Lennon talks to you its these big blue eyes like a philosopher.”
With work and three kids at home, Pressly and Hijazi are in bed by 9:30 p.m. And yet their marriage has never been stronger.
“He was meant to be a dad,” she gushed. “It’s been incredible being able to do this together.”
Mom airs on CBS on Thursdays at 9 p.m. EST.
