Nia Vardalos Returns To Acting As A Mom With Mojo

Posted: Updated:
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Nia Vardalos (var-DOLL'-os) enjoyed big success with the 2002 film "My Big Fat Greek Wedding," but it wasn't enough. She longed to be a mom.

So Vardalos took a break from acting to "grieve an infertility situation."

The 46-year-old actress-writer says she wrote six scripts during that time, and then she and her husband, Ian Gomez, adopted a 3-year-old girl.

Vardalos says her daughter, now 4 years old, is "definitely the best thing that ever happened to me." She adds: "And that's a big statement because a miracle happened with 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding.' But career success means nothing without personal happiness."

Her latest film, "My Life in Ruins," opened Friday.
