NEW YORK, May 23 (UPI) -- U.S. actress Edie Falco said while she was never driven to have biological children, she decided to adopt two young children to create a family.

The 45-year-old actress, who played Carmela Soprano on the HBO series "The Sopranos," told Parade magazine for its Sunday edition the sense of family she got from her dog Marley inspired her to adopt her children, son Anderson, 4, and daughter Macy, 1.

"I'm just not one of those people who thought having biological children was that important," Falco said. "To me it was more about wanting to raise a child."

"If I could only find a boyfriend for whom I could buy a can of food and clean up after on the street, I'd be set," the actress, who is single, added. "Maybe I should put that ad on Match.com."

The actress, who is set to star in the new Showtime series "Nurse Jackie," also spoke with Parade about surviving breast cancer and battling addiction.

"I was so lucky that two of the biggest things in my life -- my sobriety and my breast cancer -- happened in the order they happened," she told the magazine.
