Elisabeth Rohm came to fame playing the popular roles of Assistant District Attorney Serena Southerlyn in the iconic Law & Order and as Detective Kate Lockley in the TV series Angel, but now she shares her inspiring story of the desire to become a parent, and what it took to accomplish that dream. When she started blogging about her family for People.com, she had no idea how many women would respond to her stories about struggling with infertility. Now the actress best known for her role on Law and Order shares what she hasn’t yet: the full story of how in-vitro fertilization allowed her to have a child, how talking about infertility helped her cope with it, and how her desire for a baby and the difficult path that led to one taught her about herself and made her into the woman she was meant to be. She is currently on Lifetime’s hit show “The Client List” with Jennifer Love Hewitt.

Here “The King Of Kamelot” sits down #InTheLab with the inspiring Elisabeth Rohm to talk about her new book “Baby Steps”, the struggle to have a child, her role on one of television’s most iconic shows “Law and Order”, how her story has inspired others to share their struggles around infertility, her role in David O. Russell’s new film “American Hustle” (Pairing Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence again) and so much more! I even reveal my long time crush for the stunning actress.
