‘Rizzoli & Isles’ Star Sasha Alexander-Ponti Tells Us Her Mom Essentials


As chief medical examiner Dr. Maura Dorthea Isles on the hit TNT series Rizzoli & Isles, Sasha Alexander-Ponti plays a woman who doesn’t get ruffled easily, even in the most difficult situations. This practice in restraint is something that Alexander-Ponti knows all too well as the mother of two kids (Lucia Sofia, 7, and Leonardo Fortunato, 3). Splitting her time between Los Angeles and Geneva, Switzerland, this gorgeous actress (who is married to Sofia Loren’s son, Edoardo) makes sure she is equipped with all the necessary tools to get her through the day.
