Here’s what the 45-year-old actress had to share with the mag…
On not seeing herself as a mom until she met her partner Ryan Gosling: “It was the furthest thing from my mind. Ryan Gosling happened. I mean, falling in love with him. Then it made sense for me to have…not kids, but his kids. It was very specific to him.”
On how parenting has changed her life: “We’re just starting to get out of survival mode. I’m starting to feel like a person again.”
On what got her through parenting two children under the age of 2: “Family. We have an amazing support group: Ryan’s mom, my mom, Ryan’s and my sisters. It’s a village that helped us. My heart goes out to women who do this alone.”
