Nia Vardalos is a down-to-earth regular mom, who has had extraordinary things happen in her life. The way her career began (it's not what you think.) The way Tom Hanks got into business with her. The way she became a mom.. after not being able to for a very long time. It could all be a work of fiction, but in her new book about her very real life, she gets very honest about everything.
Nia has a very zen approach, a deliberate manner about her, that I didn’t expect from a comedic actress. I’d experienced the hugely positive response she’s received from speaking to large groups for some of the “Mommy Blogger” groups I belong to. But this was an intimate chat that was like having tea with a new favorite girlfriend. I think she should host her own daytime talk show- She is so personable.
As a mom who also went through IVF and who understands how it feels to want to protect your kids from anything & everything.. I totally get her on that level. But I still aspire to be as open as she is. It's rare in
is.. The more success she experiences.

I have a lot to learn from Nia. I think you’ll enjoy meeting her as much as we have. She is a spark. An inspiration. A Mom just like you and me. And she’s a woman who will continue making her mark on Hollywood for many years to come..
