Vera Farmiga is one of those Hollywood actresses at the opposite end of the spectrum when it comes to living in all the glitz and glamour. For her, it’s more about the dark skies at night, country living, and the remote quiet of upstate New York.

Farmiga, who has starred in such films as The Departed and Down to the Bone, lives on a farm with her husband and family of goats. “In another life, I was a shepherdess,” she says. “I like being off the grid. I want to be self-sufficient and live off the land.”

She recently announced that she’s expecting a child on January 5th and couldn’t be more thrilled to share her word with the new little one. “I know it’s the biggest role of my life so far and something that I yearned for more than anything.” With regards to her farm she said, ” I have Angora goats and Nubian goats, and I’ve become a farmer in my spare time. It’s really sort of a great place where I can be centered and have a great perspective on what it is I want and need. My husband is a carpenter and he’s going to be making the crib.”

Congrats to Farmiga — and good luck with new baby!
