As a brief biography, Melissa McCarthy was born in Plainfield, Illinois, USA, on August 26, 1970. Her age is 40. She is the cousin of Jenny McCarthy. Melissa attended the Joliet Catholic Academy and her acting career began with some roles in t.v series, and theatre. She appeared in series such as D.C, The Lost World, The Nines, Curb your Enthusiasm, but her famous role was as Sookie St. James in Gilmore Girls. She is also known for her role in Samantha Who? In which she played Dena. Her latest roles for movies can be seen in films like The Nines, The Back-up Plan and soon she will be in the film ‘Bridesmaids’ playing the role of Megan. She was the voice of DNAmy in Kim Possible.

The 40 year-old actress is married to Ben Falcone. She and her husband tied the knot on October 2005. Two years later, McCarthy became mother of Vivian and last year, the couple were happy to welcome their second baby daughter.

In fact, the Mike & Molly actress was pregnant with her second baby when she landed the role of Molly in the CBS comedy. She and the cast filmed the pilot four weeks after she welcomed her second daughter. I love her as Molly, she is so sweet and funny. But it seems some people always need to say something about it. Her comedy was attacked by a critic, this person said the couple of the sitcom “were not merely fat, but obese”. Well, it seems she didn’t know Melissa was pregnant just a couple of weeks after the series premiered. Maybe this person didn’t know what it was about, the series is about two larger people who met at an Overeaters Anonymous meeting, come on, they are really adorable.

Anyway, see pictures of Melissa McCarthy, the adorable Mike & Molly actress, with her husband and others in some random events, plus a couple of videos. Don’t forget to leave your comments below.
