Amy Adams describes herself as “not one of those woman who make [motherhood] look easy.” However, the 38-year-old actress still claims to love her new role as a mother and insists it was the right thing for her to do at this point in her life.
“I highly recommend having children,” Adams said in an interview last year. “It felt like exactly what my body was supposed to do at that point. More than anything else ever, it just felt physically right being pregnant. My friends without kids say, ‘Oh I don’t know how you do it, getting so tired.’ And I just think, ‘I don’t know how they don’t do it.’”
Adams welcomed her daughter, Aviana Olea Le Gallo, in May of 2010. Although it’s been more than two years, Adams assured in a recent interview with Fair Lady magazine, “I’m…not one of those women who makes [motherhood] look easy. I’m always running late and look – there’s guacamole on my purse!”
Adams also insists she has had a “muffin top” (a layer of excess fat around her waist) since her daughter was born, but she’s okay with it. Although it’s hard to even fathom Adams with a muffin top, it’s nice to hear her say that she’s “okay right now” with it (that is, of course, if it were actually there).
Since becoming a mother, Adams has starred in the romantic comedy Leap Year, tried her dramatic chops in The Fighter, and appeared in The Muppets. Adams received multiple award nominations for her role in The Fighter. This year, Adams has starred opposite Clint Eastwood in Trouble With the Curve, alongside Kristen Stewart in On The Road, and most recently in The Master, where she plays the wife of Phillip Seymour Hoffman. Next up, Adams will portray Lois Lane in the next Superman movie Man of Steel. It doesn’t appear that motherhood has slowed her down at all.
“I have to trust that I can prioritize my family and myself while still finding the energy and focus for my work,” Adams told Fair Lady.
She also explained, “I actually love my work more now [since becoming a mother], because I feel if I’m going to be away from Aviana, I’d better enjoy it. I’m trying to be more present in each moment of my life.”
