Q&A With Jamie-Lynn Sigler


When you're not pregnant, what's your best health habit? Your worst?

I'm a big juicer! I like to get in my greens that way. I'm not a big salad eater. I'll eat the stuff that's in the salad and not the greens, so I get it through juicing. My worst habit is that I have a very, very large sweet tooth. I like a lot of candy. Nerds and SweeTarts are my favorite. My sister-in-law makes special cakes, and for my birthday, she made me one in the shape of a Nerds box.

If you could wave a magic wand and eliminate any disease or health condition, what would it be?

That's so hard. It's like picking which kid you love best. I'd say cancer just because it's affected the most people in my life. There have been so many breakthroughs and there's hope, but it's still that scary word. There's a reason people used to whisper it when they said it.

What are you most excited to do with your son?

I was just talking about that yesterday with my fiancé. His family is from the South. My mom is Cuban, and my Dad's a born-and-raised Brooklyn Jew. I'm really excited to bring him to meet all these different relatives and expose him to these different cultures and places in the country. And I'm just excited to see what he's going to be into. Cutter is an athlete, and I'm in arts and music, and it will be fun to go on that journey with our son and see what he's into and support whatever it is.

What's a perfect "me day" for you?

First, I'd sleep in. Then I'd sit outside with Cutter and my dog and read the paper on my iPad. Then we'd go out for a nice big breakfast. Breakfast tends to be my largest meal, so it'd probably consist of some type of omelet and pancakes and chocolate milk. Then something outside, like swimming or going to the dog park. Then I'd come home, take a shower, get in bed, watch a movie and fall asleep. I'm a big fan of the afternoon nap! And then I'd wake up and go have dinner with friends and come home wishing to do it all over again the next day.
