Nina Dobrev Opens Up About the Pressure to Start a Family!

Nina Dobrev Opens Up About the Pressure to Start a Family!

Nina Dobrev is on the cover of Women’s Health‘s January/February 2019 issue, out now.

Here’s what the 29-year-old Vampire Diaries actress had to say…

On eating more than she used to, every two hours, to keep her metabolism stable: “I feel healthier. You’re happier when your body is full, your brain functions better, and you’re a nicer person. I would get hangry, I think, because I was so busy running around that I wasn’t the best version of myself.”

On the pressure to start a family: “I can and will definitely have both [career and family]. I’m still working on me. When I do have a family, I can focus my full energy on that, but I’m not ready for it yet. In 10 years, hopefully, I will be – for my mom’s sake. My mom wanted me to have a baby 10 years ago. She gets me baby clothes for Christmas every year. She’s like ‘Hint, hint, nudge, nudge!’”

On leaving hit supernatural show The Vampire Diaries in 2015: “I was like, ‘Why am I here? What am I doing? Is it making me happy? What can I do to make me happier?’”

    So proud of her! Can’t wait to see Fam… from the sneek it looks awesome!
    PS: I can so relate to the pressure of having babies… My grandmother is the same… I’m lucky my mom is more cool about the matter, and doesn’t pressure me that much!
