Why Jessica Biel hates taking her baby to a restaurant
She might be a Hollywood actress and married to megababe Justin Timberlake, but even Jessica Biel finds visiting a restaurant with her baby a hairy experience.
The 34-year-old gave birth to her first child Silas with Justin in April 2015.
Now, we doubt she’s down the local Pizza Hut trying to juggle a squirming baby with trips to the unlimited salad bar.
Justin, I’ll go and fill up the bowls – you keep him from screaming the place down.
BUT even in the flashiest of LA eateries, Jessica gets anxious.
“Since he’s so little still and I’m still kind of learning how I do it in a very smooth and like elegant way, it’s terrifying,” she told E! News.
“You get to a place, you want to make sure the diners around you are not being bothered, you’re full of anxiety, you’re trying to go as fast as you can – you don’t enjoy it at all.”
We can all relate to that sinking feeling you get when your baby starts having a meltdown and people at the next table tut and stare.
You just want to hide under the table. And even forgo pudding so you can get the hell out of there.
Is there anything worse than leaving that chocolate brownie with ice-cream behind?
And that anxiety is what’s inspired the mum of 1 to open her own family-friendly restaurant – where parents can relax. (and presumably eat pudding in peace.)
“We just want you to feel stress-free about it,” she said. “And know that they’re playing with things that are safe, that we don’t use chemicals here, that there’s not just a bunch of plastic everywhere and we’ve really tried to think very thoughtfully about your family because it’s our family, too.”
Well, it sounds fab but we probably wont make it out to the fancy eatery any time soon. Soz.
For now, it’s best we stick to places we know are family friendly. Or better still… rope someone into babysit so you can eat your calzone in peace!
