Interview by Lori Bizzoco. Written by Whitney Johnson.

Of all the roles she’s played, Lori Loughlin is most proud of the one she takes on at home: that of wife and mother. Of course, it’s not always easy to balance her busy career with her family life. “One day at a time – you do the best you can,” she candidly shares in our celebrity interview. “Some things fall through the cracks, but you know, I have a wonderful husband, and he’s always on board… Somehow, we make it work.”

“We’re a tight knit family,” she adds of husband Mossimo Giannulli, daughters Olivia and Isabella, and stepson Gianni.

Now that her girls are older, the family dynamic has changed. “That’s a whole new chapter – teenage daughters,” Loughlin says with a laugh. “It’s great. For the most part, my girls are really good girls.”

Sharing a piece of parenting advice, she encourages you to always communicate with your kids, saying, “I think it’s important to keep talking to teenagers, and somewhere in there, it’ll sink in.”

On Friday date nights, the celebrity couple, who has been married for 18 years, likes to keep things simple, often eating at restaurants close to home. “It’s so funny: You can be married and live in the same house with somebody, but life can be so busy that you feel like you don’t get to have a conversation with that person,” the actress shares. “It’s important to take the time to stop, sit down, have a meal together, and have a conversation – keep communicating.”
