Trending Now


Is actress Melissa McCarthy a basketball mom? According to a recent interview with Ellen DeGeneres, she totally is!

We all know McCarthy as the comic queen behind plenty of our fave funny films. But she’s also the mama to two girls, a 9- and an 11-year-old. During an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, McCarthy opened up about her sports’ mom ways.

The actress and mama shared that basketball has “taken over house” now that both of her girls are playing the sport. McCarthy added that when nine-year-old daughter Georgie recently made her first basket, “We all went crazy. My dad burst out crying. I burst out crying. And there’s a woman behind us and she’s like, ‘I don’t even know why I’m crying.'”

McCarthy also admitted that she’s become “exactly the person I always feared I’d meet.” Yep, she’s that basketball mama in the bleachers. As for the rest of us sports’ moms? Yeah, we totally get it, too.
