Melissa McCarthy’s not only an amazing actress, but also a crafty mom

Everyone’s favourite Best Supporting Actress nominee, Bridesmaids’ Melissa McCarthy (41), took her adorable daughter Vivian Falcone (4.5) shopping at Michaels Arts & Crafts in Burbank, California, earlier this week.

Wonder what they’re making with all those bags of craft supplies….

In addition to Vivian, Melissa and her hubby Ben Falcone have a 22-month-old baby, Georgette.

Being pregnant wasn’t easy for Melissa, nor was new motherhood, and I love what she told People shortly after giving birth to Georgette:

I’m super round and super tired. My husband says it’s like he’s married to a 90-year-old because I just go out mid-sentence. He says, ‘You were in mid-thought and then the next thing you stop talking. I turn around and you’re sound asleep on the couch.’

And of course, Hollywood’s obsession with body image doesn’t elude Melissa, especially as a mom of two girls. She told People she wishes Hollywood would focus more on health and less on looks:

For me personally, I’m heavier right now and am trying to lose some weight…. I just had a baby and I’m heavier than I want to be. I hope that people will root for me becoming healthier.

Love her. And I’m super jealous that she’s a crafty parent.
