Liv Tyler only gave birth to her son a year ago and now she’s 4 months’ pregnant. So there aren’t many months recently when she hasn’t been sporting a baby bump.
“It’s like I’ve been pregnant for 3 years!” she told the Evening Standard. Those of us who’ve had babies as close together as her 18-month gap – or maybe even closer – know just how she feels!
Liv, 38, is expecting her 2nd child with fiancé Dave Gardner in the summer. She also has a much older son Milo, 11, with her ex-husband Royston Langdon.
And, although this will be her 3rd birth, Liv says she’s finding the prospect of labour a bit daunting since her last son Sailor was 6 weeks early.
“Childbirth is a wonderful, magic, amazing experience,” she says, “but it’s pretty f***ing scary: a lot of high stakes.”
And she admits she’s still no expert when it comes to babies either, and is flattened by the earth-shattering tiredness you feel as a new mum. “I nearly threw that Gina Ford [The Contented Little Baby] book out of the window,” she says. “I cried…”
For Sailor’s 1st birthday, Liv chose a personalised cake. The all-white cake has a unicorn and the number 1 on top, with his name iced in blue underneath. Aw, isn’t it cute?
