The writer and star of My Big Fat Greek Wedding has made the New York Times bestsellers list! Nia is on tour promoting her new book “Insant Mom” The book explores her private life and fertility struggles that led to adoption with husband Ian Gomez.
Vardalos chronicles her attempts to have a baby, and how she tries everything—from drinking jugs of green mud tea, to acupuncture, to working with two surrogates. Finally, she and her husband, actor Ian Gomez, decide to try adoption and discover a free service: Foster Family Agencies. Then one day, the social workers "match" her with an almost-three-year-old girl, who she knows, instantly, is her daughter.
With her signature wit and candor, Nia Vardalos reveals what really came next—the truth of how she and her husband transitioned a preschooler into their home. Vardalos opens up about the bawling-tears and belly-laughter that all make up what it means to be...a parent.
In addition to her book, Vardalos is working both behind the scenes and in front of the camera for the upcoming Paramount Pictures film “Leftovers.” Greek Reporter caught up with the Greek-Canadian/American recently to discuss “Instant Mom,” and her other projects:
