From her start as a writer on "Saturday Night Live," Tina Fey has catapulted up the ranks into her current role as producer, writer and actress on NBC's popular sitcom, "30 Rock." But TV is not her only outlet. Critics hailed her 2004 major motion picture "Mean Girls" as smart and edgy. She has won countless awards, including AP's Entertainer of the Year designation. In 2005, she added to her impressive list of accomplishments with the birth of her daughter.
It's typical for a job title in Hollywood to be hyphenated, but it doesn't always include Mom, and Fey is the first to admit it's a constant challenge. Her husband provides much of the childcare and Fey often brings her work home with her so she can spend as much time as possible with her daughter. She realizes that her busy dual role doesn't allow much time for anything else, but accepts these limitations as the way things are for the time being.
