Rebecca admits that not everything about motherhood is glamorous. She just finished nursing her twins a couple of weeks ago and she was amazed at how much milk she had to produce to keep those babies fat and happy.
“I finished nursing three weeks ago. And yes, I was a milk machine! I felt like that’s all I was to them, just this walking milk machine.” She said she was always dehydrated, but she lost the baby weight quickly because of that. Because I’m an actress, the pressure to lose weight quickly is definitely there. But honestly, nursing did most of it. It requires so many calories per day to nurse two babies. That was the fastest, but I still have a little way to go.”
She also talked about how working outside the home has made her bond with her babies stronger.
She said: “Honestly, I was with them right up until they were six months which is when we started shooting, and I felt like they kind of took me for granted a little bit, like Jerry would walk in, and they’d be like, ‘Ahhh.’ But then they never even noticed that it was me with them the whole time. Now that I’m not there as many hours during the day, they’re pretty clingy and I have to say I love it. It’s the best feeling in the world.”
Now if only parenthood could just be about that stuff all the time, the missing, the hugging, and the cuddling with kisses. Not reminding them 20 times to brush their teeth or having to tell them over and over again not to beat up their brother.
