The star of the new sitcom Running Wilde has her hands full handling both her busy career and being a mom.

Starting tomorrow night on Fox, you’ll be able to tune in every Tuesday night to see Keri Russell co-starring with Will Arnett in the new sitcom Running Wilde. But just because she’s got a brand new show on the air doesn’t mean things are suddenly easy for the mother of River Deary, 3. “Anytime you’re working and you have kids it’s hard,” she told Hollybaby.com exclusively.

“My little guy’s first week of preschool was last week,” the 34-year-old says. “I never imagined I wouldn’t be walking him to class. By chance I didn’t have to go in until 1 p.m. so I got to drop him off at least. I’m sure it’s hard for my lawyer friends, too. You just have to make time. During weekends I try to be there to make dinner. I try to make the little bits count.”

It helps, too, that her co-star Will, 40, also has a couple of little ones at home. His wife, Amy Poehler, 38, just gave birth to their second son, Abel, last month, while older son Archie will be 2 next month.

“Will has a little guy so they’ve already played together. It’s the best because Will is in the same situation.”

Isn’t it nice to know that some celebrities have the same issues we do?
