Writer and star of MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING, Nia Vardalos firmly believed she was supposed to be a mom but felt Mother Nature and modern medicine had put her in a head lock. So she made a choice that shocked friends, family and even herself: with only fourteen hours notice, she adopted a preschooler.
INSTANT MOM is Vardalos’ hilarious and poignant true chronicle of trying to become a mother while working on her career and fielding nosy ‘frenemies’ and Hollywood reporters asking, “Any baby news?”
With her signature wit and candor, she describes her and husband Ian Gomez’s bumpy road-to-parenting, and how they found their daughter. INSTANT MOM explores innovative ways to conquer the challenges all new moms face-from sleep to personal grooming - plus includes a resourceful how-to-adopt Appendix.
With her first steps into the Parents Club, Vardalos learns that whether via biological, marriage, or adoption… motherhood comes in many forms.
