On Everbody Loves Raymond and on her upcoming FOX comedy Back to You, Patricia Heaton‘s characters have daughters — a refreshing departure for the 49-year-old with four sons at home.

Patricia and her husband David Hunt are parents to Sam, 13, John Basil, 12, Joseph Charles, 10, and Daniel Patrick, 8. But when asked to list their ages, the actress joked,

The boys love spending time with their mom too. While " they could care less" that Patricia is an actress, the four of them do care about her workload.

Patricia is working nowadays on Back to You, which premieres Wednesday at 8:00, but luckily for her sons, the hours are not bad at all.
