Matt Damon and Luciana Barroso Get Ready for New Baby


Matt Damon and his wife Luciana already have three kids—Alexia, 11, (Luciana’s daughter from a previous relationship) Isabella, 3, and Gia, 21 months. But last month, Damon announced that they were expecting a fourth child later this year, which is a lot of kids to cram into a home—no matter what size that home may be.

No argument from Matt Damon on that.

“We’re bracing ourselves for our next little tornado,” Damon told People. “We’re excited. But it is a lot of work.”

I think likening a newborn baby to a tornado is an apt comparison—a force of nature comes into your life and rearranges all of your belongings. I friend of mine described having a baby as being hit by a comet, and I like that one too. How do you descirbe the experiece of bringing a new baby home? Is it easier the third—or fourth—time around?
