Angela Kinsey Shares Her Nursing Jams

08/07/2008 at 07:00 PM ET


Angela Kinsey may be heading back to work on the next season of The Office, but the new mom feels "incredibly lucky" because she gets to bring daughter Isabel Ruby on set! She doesn’t believe she could be away from her daughter all day, saying she has nothing but "utmost respect" for working moms who have to be away from their children. The 37-year-old admits that although she has "never juggled so many things at once and been so happy and so tired all at the same time," she truly believes that Isabel is "by far the best thing I’ve ever done."

The new mom is enjoying spending time with Isabel and is especially fond of dressing her up! Angela explains that she’s loving a pair of "socks that look like little shoes" — so much so that she made co-star Jenna [Fischer] "come into my trailer last week just to look at [them]."  When Angela isn’t making a fashion plate out of her little girl, she can usually be found breastfeeding or pumping. During nursing sessions, Angela and Isabel listen to a playlist on mom’s iPod that she created previous to her daughter’s arrival.

One day I was holding her when ‘Shelter from the Storm’ came on and I was looking at her and she was looking at me and I was overcome with how much I love her. I just started to tear up. Me, Isabel and Bob Dylan … does it get any better than that?

Angela and husband Warren Lieberstein have been married since June 18, 2000.

I assume she’s talking about Trumpette socks?

I didn’t listen to music when I breastfed. Honestly – the tv was on all day and that’s what I did.
That or surf the web and check out CBB 😉

I love Trumpette Socks, my son has 4 different sets of them they are great!

Shes very lucky to be able to bring her daughter to work with her, its not really possible with very many jobs.

I listen to a lot of Jack Johnson, Portishead, Bob Marley, and other mellow songs when I’m nursing the baby.

My daughter and I listened to all kinds of music – rock, blues, gospel, bluegrass, r&b, jazz, dub … but she’s always (as a baby, and now at 3) seemed to like the louder, faster stuff the most … early Pearl Jam, White Stripes. No Joke.

Angela has great taste in music!

To keep me awake during night time feedings, I used to listen to audiobooks – music put me to sleep. I was quite sad when my daughter started sleeping through the night at 10 weeks as I only got to listen to two whole books.
