She just won an Emmy for her role as Alicia Florrick on The Good Wife, but Julianna Margulies is most proud of her gig as a wife to husband Keith Lieberthal and mother to their son Kieran. In her Emmy acceptance speech Margulies thanked her family, saying:
“And to my spectacular husband, I love being your good wife, and I’m so grateful you have no political aspirations. And I just want to say thank you to you and to our sweet boy, Kieran, you handle my long hours with such grace and understanding. It means nothing without you. Thank you.”
In spite of her hectic schedule filming her hit show, it’s obvious that Julianna’s family is still priority in her life. So what advice did she recently give fellow mom/actress Sarah Michelle Gellar? “But be prepared. You have to be an Olympian. You have to stay in great shape, you have to eat well, you can’t get sick, you have to be there all the time for your kid on your moments of leisure.”
And that is why Julianna’s successful. Instead of putting work first and choosing roles that are a little suspect, she puts effort in what’s important. The supermom was seen with her husband at LAX along with the shiny Emmy carefully tucked away in a paper bag.
