Debi Mazar speaks about motherhood, Thanksgiving and the possibility of adoption
Entourage star Debi Mazar, 43, was in New York November 15 to help promote Washington Mutual/Mastercard’s Joy of Giving Sweepstakes. She took time out to speak with Star magazine about motherhood and the possibility of expanding her family in the future. When congratulated on the birth of her most recent child, Debi responded:
Yes, I have another baby. It has been a year-and-a-half and motherhood is the best.
Debi spoke about the difficulty juggling her career with parenthood. She said:
Yes, it is incredibly demanding. You have no idea what you are in for when you have kids. But it is so worth it. I have always wanted to have kids. I have a really hands-on husband and he is the key.
Debi was also asked whether or not she was considering having a third child and she responded:
I might adopt a third. I am 43-years-old, so I am done being pregnant. Plus, it is hard to cast a pregnant woman on-screen. I am open to adoption.
Debi is a friend of Madonna’s and was asked if she would seek her advice if she were to adopt a child. Debi said:
Sure. I would love her opinion. It also depends a lot on the age and where the child comes from. I am pro-adoption here in the United States, so I will probably adopt locally.
Debi also spoke a little bit about her upcoming Thanksgiving holiday plans saying:
I am going to cook a turkey to give my daughters a sense of tradition. My husband will cook Italian. My fondest memories are going to my grandma’s. We will have people over and I want to give some of those memories to my daughters.
I give thanks for the love of my husband, the health of my children, good friends and to God, for living life.
Debi is married to Gabriele Corcos and they have two daughters: Evelina Maria, 5, and Giulia Isabel, 20 months. Debi and Gabriele are currently hosting a very successful internet show focused on Tuscan cuisine called Under the Tuscan Gun.
