Anderso was one of five finalists selected from dozens of nominations.
"I guess it was a little surprising since there are a lot of wonderful mothers out there," Anderson said when asked how it feels to be designated Mother Of The Year. "I'm excited because this is what I do full time. This is my job and this is what I love. It was my dream since I was little to have a big family and this is my dream come true."
