Elizabeth Berkley Lauren (who will always be Jessie Spano to me and I mean that in the best way possible—go, Bayside!) is juggling being a working mom for the first time as she struts her stuff on Dancing with the Stars with pro partner Val Chmerkovskiy. While it’s no easy task balancing mommy time and rigorous rehearsals, the actress appears to be loving every minute of it.
“The love is so huge (for my son) and I really didn’t know that it could be that big and expansive,” she tells OK! backstage at DWTS. “The heart has the ability to love that deeply and it’s amazing. I feel that for my husband, too. You can’t know until you know. My friends would tell me that and I get it now.”
Fair or not, when you have one baby, everyone wants to know if you plan on adding another cutie to the mix, but Elizabeth and her hubby aren’t calculating their next move.
“Well, I’m not timing it,” she says. “I don’t know. I’m just kind of finding my way, balancing work for the first time with the baby and this is a beautiful job to do that with because it’s so joyful. We have music on in the house and we’re dancing. It’s a really fun first thing to do. So we’ll see how I navigate working mom mode.”
Catch Elizabeth and Val tonight on Dancing With the Stars on ABC at 8/7c.
