Actress Jane Lynch, 52, says she loves her stepdaughter Haden more than anything else.
Lynch married psychologist Lara Embry in 2010. Since then she has been taking care of Haden.
"My greatest pleasure is Haden. I am surprised how much love you feel and how you would do anything for your children," Lynch told US Weekly, reports contactmusic.com.
"I am in awe of Haden. I like watching her walk without fear. She is one of the most fair, open-hearted, embracing people I have ever met," she said.
Lynch, who featured in the movie "Glee", also tries to encourage Haden in everything she does.
"If one week your child wants to be an actor and the next day a fireman, encourage them. Seeing who your kids are as opposed to what you want them to be is important," she said.
