Family Photo: The Sorvino-Backus’ Get Crafty

06/15/2011 at 01:00 PM ET

Gettin’ crafty! Mira Sorvino, husband Chris Backus and their two eldest kids —  Mattea Angel, 6½, and Johnny Christopher King, 5 — were snapped visiting the 77kids by American Eagle booth Sunday at the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation‘s A Time for Heroes Carnival in Los Angeles. Toddler Holden Paul Terry, who turns 2 this month, sat this one out.

“There’s kind of an image of, ‘Yay – the happy working mom!’ and everything works out so well, but it’s really difficult to juggle,” Sorvino, 43, has said. “There’s no such thing as the supermom who does it all and it’s all perfect. You only have 100% to give, and you can’t give 100% to both your work and children.”

Mattea looks just like her grandpa. I remember him on Law and Order WAY back when. He does that same smile!

OMGosh, I had to go look at a pic of Paul Sorvino to test your theory… YOU ARE TOTALLY RIGHT! She does look just like grandpa! See:

Yeah, that Chris Backus is a hottie. Mira looks lovely but poor Johnny looks really confused! I bet Holden’s just as adorable as his older brother and sister.
