The 33-year-old actress made the reveal in an essay she wrote for Glamour about changing the way society speaks about women.
“Motherhood has been heavily on my mind because I am going to be a mother soon,” writes Tamblyn, 33. “I’m pregnant, with a daughter on the way. I think constantly about the world I am bringing her into. Will I get a phone call from my daughter someday, one she never wanted to make? Will I have to share with her my story, and the story of her great-grandmother’s words to her grandmother?,” Amber wrote, revealing the pregnancy.
She also voiced her support of Hillary Clinton.
“Hillary Clinton is a mom. She’s also a daughter. She’s also a grandmother. I have wondered what kind of conversations she’s had to have with her daughter about men, or what conversations Hillary’s mother had to have with her about boys? When people tell me they dislike Hillary not because she’s a woman but because of her record alone, I think, ‘How can you be sure?’ I don’t think anyone can be. The disdain for Hillary Clinton can never be about her record alone. Powerful women don’t get to exist outside of context. To discount all the good she’s done in her 30 years of public service and pay attention to the bad is, at best, severely myopic. At worst, it erases the struggles and achievements of all women. If we are not allowed to be complex, compromising, wholly human—as human as men—then we are all disqualified,” Amber continued.
Congrats to Amber and David!
