It took Angie Harmon a little time to find the right man, but when former professional football player Jason Sehorn came along, she knew it was worth the wait. Despite being discouraged at times, the actress says she is appreciative and proud of the family she and Jason have created. Little moments mean the most to her, such as when daughters Finley Faith, 4 ½, and Avery Grace, 3, wake up from their naps and "crawl into my lap and snuggle. They’re so still I can feel their hearts beating."

Angie admits that she is an anxious person and wants things now instead of later. She credits Jason for helping her to learn patience as she watches him spends hours with their daughters "in the backyard looking for bugs and snails and frogs." (For her part, Angie says, "Gross! Those were a plague for a reason!")

Angie, 36, and Jason, 37, are currently expecting their third child.
