Felicity Huffman is the youngest of eight children. By the time she came along her mother had run out of family names (there are 2 Jessie’s, 3 Grace’s, 2 Jane’s, 3 Moore’s, and the list continues), so she was called “Flicka”. The name “Felicity” was added as an afterthought because you can’t go around life with a nickname if you don’t have the original name to get the “nick” from.

Felicity is an actress and mom whose favorite things are taking naps, hanging with her sisters (both literal and soul), and mornings in bed with her family.
