Blake Lively Says Breast Feeding Is 'Full Time Job'
Here’s what the 27-year-old actress had to share with the mag:
On doing it all: “Most of the things I do are all-consuming, but somehow I find a way to do it all. It’s not having it all; it’s about doing it all, but it’s dangerous to dilute that to a catchphrase. Having it all could be having a happy, healthy family, and you could be a mom who stays at home, and that is the most admirable thing you could do. Or it could be having a profession that you really believe in, and not having a family, and doing what fulfills you. If it’s not a part of a conversation with someone face-to-face, those bites are why women tear each other apart or why the media will tear people apart.”
On breast feeding: “A full-time job. I’m, like, driving down the road, pumping.”
On revealing her pregnancy on her site preserve: “That was my way of owning that moment. I can’t be someone like Beyoncé and be like— (she mimes throwing open a jacket and showing off her belly, a reference to Beyoncé’s onstage announcement of her pregnancy at the VMAs in 2011). But it was important for us. It was a struggle, because we want to keep our privacy, but we also don’t want our lives to be exploited by other people. So we did it simply; it was a quiet way, an elegant way.”
