Calista Flockhart has been on a four year hiatus from the small-screen and is now making her big return this fall on ABC’s Brothers & Sisters. In an interview with OK, Calista admitted her excitement to join the ranks of many American women by becoming a working mother. She has spent the last few years staying home, raising her 5-year-old son Liam.
"I loved being a mom, but as any mom can tell you, you stay home with a two-year-old 24/7, you get mush brain," she says.
The former Ally McBeal star says her son, who she adopted as an infant, is just as happy as she is about her new job.
"Liam and I talk about it and he’s really okay with it, " she says. "He always says ‘Well you’re a mom, but you’re an actress too. I can’t say that I had an easy time, but he had a pretty easy time."
