On raising Rockwell as a single mom, Lucy previous told "We didn't create a traditional family that most people would say is 'the social norm,' but he never feels that he's without anything he needs."

Reflecting on her decision to have Rockwell via surrogacy, the actress told People: "It just seemed like the right option for me because I was working and I didn't know when I was going to be able to stop."

"I decided that was probably the best solution for me, and it turned out to be great." She continued: "I didn't realize how quickly babies progress. Very basic things that you just take for granted. They're just this little lump of flesh, and then all the sudden they're turning around, they're observing you and they're smiling and they're interacting. It's a magical experience."
