Glee star Lea Michele (Rachel) is pretty adorable all on her own, but when you add kids into the mix? New levels of cute.

Recently, Lea sat down with a group of kid reporters from Kidsday to answer their burning questions following the release of her new (and first!) book, Brunette Ambition, and what resulted was one of our favorite interviews of all time.

And as the kids read their questions from a list, Lea took her time and did an awesome job keeping a straight face, even though you can totally tell she wants to smile from the cuteness of it all. During the interview, she even had the chance to impart some of her wisdom — especially when it comes to kids whose parents aren’t supportive of their dreams.

“It’s very hard if there’s something that you want to do but maybe your mom and dad don’t think that it’s what you should be doing,” Lea said thoughtfully. “You should obviously listen to them, because they do know what’s best, but you have to do what you really love and what you really enjoy, and I’m just really thankful that my mom and dad supported me and loved watching me sing and loved watching me on stage.”

Solid advice! Can she come over and solve all our problems, too? Seeing Lea talk with these kids has made us super excited for the children she plans to have someday. When she’s ready, she’ll be an awesome mom!
