Despite her admirable return to pre-baby form, exercise is hit-or-miss at the moment with actress Mary Lynn Rajskub. While walking the red carpet Monday at the Los Angeles premiere of her new film Sunshine Cleaning, the 37-year-old mom to Valentine Anthony, 7-months, revealed that when she has the energy she mixes weight training with walking and yoga. “I’ve been doing that on and off just when I feel like it.” Her workout routine is about to undergo a major overhaul, however, for Valentine is rapidly approaching ‘mobile’ status! Jokes Mary Lynn,

“He’s getting a mouthful of teeth and he’s almost walking, which is pretty early. He’s just on the move. He’s got a lot to do, standing and pulling himself up, speaking full sentences, reading the dictionary in his spare time.”

There are no immediate plans by Mary Lynn and partner Matthew Rolph to make Valentine a big brother; The couple are instead choosing to “focus on this one for now.” As for marriage, Mary Lynn remains non-committal: “We’re just taking it moment by moment,” she explains. “But it wouldn’t be a bad thing, I don’t think.”

Sunshine Cleaning is in select theaters Friday; It opens nationwide March 27th.

I’m not sure how I feel about this celebrity fascination with having babies out-of-wedlock. It seems so many celebrity couples are perpetually engaged and having children these days. Just an observation…

Haha, reading the dictionary. Mary seems so fun and down to earth. I’m sure she is a great mother

I don’t believe it is just celebrities who are having children without being married. I believe that since they are in the constant public eye it just seems like it is them. But they are still regular people and in this day and age its more common to have a family without being married. I know many people, including my own brother, who have been with the same person for years and they have kids but aren’t married, its just not a big thing anymore.

Nearly walking at 7 months?

I love to brag about my son’s achievements , don’t get me wrong…but that one just sounds a little far-fetched to me, or was that apart of the joke?

@andy: its possible. i was walking at 7.5 months myself

Loumin on

@ Andy – the walking is possible that early – my mother in law was walking at the end of 7 months and my little girl bypassed crawling for cruising along furniture and walls at about 6 months – she did that till 10 months and then she let go! I even have pictures of my daughter holding herself up in the bars of her cot when she 4 months old! I kid you not, I’ve never been more scared! We had to lower the cot to the bottom rung then! x

ErykaWinter,
I know what you mean.I get the whole thing that divorce is such a popular thing in hollywood,but it seems awful that they use that as a reason not to get married.Sometimes being that realistic can be unfortunate.I think when there are children involved a marriage is a good thing because it offers security and its better than (as Judge Judy would call it)”playing house”. Maybe because i’m old fashioned and christian,I guess.

And the “I don’t need a piece of paper” quip always makes me laugh. It’s not about the piece of paper.It is about the commitment and the vows (they are much more than words) and the fact that this person cares so much about you that they are willing to do that.

I have noticed that a lot of my generation is very much adapting to that. Even when I married my high school sweetheart at 20 everyone thought something was wrong and I must be pregnant (which I wasn’t).One thing with my generation and the one under me is that it seems everyone now is scared of commitments..I was shocked to hear that A LOT of teens are into this “friends with benefits,booty call” thing instead of dating nowadays.I’m 24 and in my “day”, we dated.Kids are growing up a lot before their time I guess.

Marriage gets such a bad rap these days. I did notice though that we try much harder to work at our problems now that we are married than when we were just living together.I guess the expensive and annoying process of divorce and not to mention all the work from the wedding is a great motivation to try to work things out lol.

Aya- Could you explain how marriage provides security for kids? And as for the “piece of paper” thing, I think what most of those people are trying to say that they feel they are ALREADY committed to one another and don’t need to exchange vows or to recieve a piece of paper to prove it (some celebs, such as Johnny Depp, have even come right out and said so).
