Megan Fox on Motherhood: “You’ve Done Something No Man Could Ever Do”
Megan Fox may have only welcomed her second son, Bodhi, four months ago, but she’s already adapting well to being a mother of two. As she kicks off the media whirlwind that’s bound to go down as she preps for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to hit theaters next month, Megan’s still holding down the fort with hubby Brian Austin Green.
And in her cover interview for the August issue of Cosmopolitan, Megan dished on mommyhood — and why it makes her feel more powerful than ever.
“There’s a power that comes with having a child,” the 28-year-old Transformers star tells the mag, according to E! News. “You’ve done something incredible that no man could ever do or understand. It’s hard to resist letting yourself fall apart physically, because when you’re taking care of a child with little to no help, there isn’t time to take care of you.”
We’re not convinced Megan’s “falling apart.” Just a few months post-pregnancy, she already looks amazing. Also, is Megan insinuating that Brian needs to get his butt into gear where his daddy duties are concerned? You heard the woman, get moving!
In the past, though, Megan’s admitted that with the great power of being a mom comes a huge sense of worry — and we can imagine that worry has only doubled since Bodhi came into the picture.
“From the moment I gave birth to Noah, that was the first time I was like, ‘I love something so much that I will never be the same again,’” Megan has said. “I will never be relaxed again because I will always be worried about him and hoping that he’s okay and safe and happy.”
Hopefully, as the kids get older, Megan’s load lightens — but we have a feeling that worrying thing never goes away.
