Keri Russell continued the press tour for her new movie Waitress recently, telling the San Francisco Chronicle that although the baby she is expecting with husband Shane Deary — their first — was unplanned, it was not unwelcome. A self-proclaimed victim of "pregnancy brain," Keri also admitted that she has begun to ponder the great debate over whether women can really have it all — both at work and at home. Fortunately, the young actress has successful role models to draw from, like Waitress co-star Cheryl Hines, herself mom to 3-year-old Catherine Rose.

Keri said she is eager to be a hands-on mom, and expressed hesitancy about handing over control of the childrearing duties to an outsider.
