Not A Fan Of The Word Nanny; Shares River’s Xmas List

Cast of 'The Americans' Attend Event at The Paley Fest

Actress Keri Russell has been starring in the hit series “The American”, which shoots close to home and allows her more time with her kids.  In a new interview with Capitol File magazine, she dishes on her kids, River, 6, and Willa, 2.

Keri explains that she doesn’t use the word nanny for those who help care for her kids.  “I tend to think I can do everything myself. I don’t even like the word nanny, so I call them babysitters. Is that weird?  I  recently read A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway, documenting a time in Paris when Hemingway and his wife were just starting out. They were totally destitute—literally, they had no money—and even they had a sitter!”

Keri’s job shoots in Brooklyn, where she and her family live, and she loves the convenience, “I ride my bike to work.  It looks a lot like Washington, DC, and is much closer to my family. It’s the perfect job for a working mom.”

The celebrity mom dished on her kids’ Christmas lists (at least last year’s).  “Christmas time gets more fun the older my kids get. In fact, I’ve been saving River’s Christmas lists. Last year he asked for a cheetah. Yes, a cheetah. That and a red T-shirt.  How crazy is the cheetah and how mundane the red tee?”
