Angie Harmon: My Daughters Love to Laugh

She never imagined a life with three daughters, but now that Angie Harmon is mom to Finley Faith, 6½, Avery Grace, 4½, and Emery Hope, 16 months, the actress is treasuring her time with her girls.

“Their personalities are so different and so fun to watch develop,” she tells designer Tory Burch of her children with husband Jason Sehorn.

But despite their differences, Harmon admits Finley, Avery and Emery all love to laugh — much to her amusement.

“What I love the most about all three of them is that they each have a great sense of humor,” she shares.

“Even when they are mad or crying, I can usually get a smirk or even a chuckle out of them.”

Drawing inspiration from her grandmother when it comes to raising her family, Harmon reveals her best parenting advice is harder than it sounds.

“If you need to apologize to someone, do it,” she explains. “That means actually saying the words, ‘I’m sorry.'”

As for her dreams for her daughters, Harmon hopes they will have their “health and happiness,” as they find their way.

“Life is full of ups and downs, successes and mistakes,” Harmon, 37, says. “I want them to know they can always turn to God and their parents for guidance and support.”

Emery looks just like Angie! :)

They look cute but the names are atrocious. Finley, Avery and Emery are boy names, parents should be ashamed…

poor little girl has a frida kahlo thing going. but i do like the names, even though “andre” notes their masculinity. i think they’re cute.

andre- don’t name your kids those names then. you swear like your opinion means something. ha.

CelebBabyLover on

izzy- Very well said! Besides, Finley, Avery, and Emery are actually unisex names (especially Avery and Emery) not boy names! Also, when you think about it, some names that we think of today as “girl’s” names started out as boy names. Ashley is one example. :)

All three girls are so beautiful! I love Emery’s eyebrows, and I love all of their names. These days girls can have masculine-souding names without them sounding masculine… if that makes sense. I mean, I think of Finley and Avery as unisex names, so if they’re on a girl it sounds girly, and on a boy they sound boy-ish. Emery I think of solely as a girls’ name, but maybe that’s just me? Anyway, I think all three names and all three girls are charming :)

Robyn on

On the name thing, I absolutely agree that Avery, Emery, and Finley are unisex names. My name is Robyn and while the spelling is feminine, the name itself is unisex. There’s nothing wrong with using the unisex name, especially since Angie Harmon’s daughters have such feminine middle names. They flow well.

Even my daughter has a unisex name. Her name is Ariel and it’s predominantly a Jewish male’s name but here in the States, we see it used more as a female’s name.
