Susan Sarandon is one of the greatest actresses of all time. Her movies range from “Thelma and Louise” to “Dead Man Walking” to one of my favorites, “Stepmom.” She is full of talent; the long list of her successful films gives testimony to that fact.

In 1983, while filming the movie, “The Hunger,” she found herself in the hospital and was diagnosed with Endometriosis. Doctors told her she would never be able to have children unless she had surgery.

At the time, Susan wasn't thinking about having a family, but was focused on her career because that was going very well. In fact, she was on her way to Italy to film another movie, so she declined the recommended procedure. While in Italy, however, she met a handsome Italian man named Franco and the two started dating.

Then, at the age of 38, Susan found herself pregnant. In light of her recent diagnosis, this was truly a miracle. She told Franco he could be involved or not, but she was going to keep the baby. Today, her daughter Eva is 30, married with a child of her own...and Susan is now a grandmother!

After having Eva, Susan met Tim Robbins and had two more children with him, Jack and Miles. Today, the boys are all grown up with careers of their own and Susan couldn't be more proud.

Looks as though everything worked out for Susan. Not only was she able to pursue the career she always desired, but she also received the bonus blessing she never knew she wanted: three beautiful children who are the light of her life. Watch the video, below, and hear from Ms. Sarandon, herself.
