Anyone that has done it knows that being a single mom isn’t easy. Minnie Driver looks like she is doing it with grace. She recently talked to the Times Online about her daily struggles and highs. Here are the highlights from the interview:
On if she would like more children: “Growing up, I thought I’d have at least five kids. I’m surprised I have only one; I really want more. It was never my intention to leave it until I was in my late thirties, but it was never the right time, right place or right person. Too many women put it off until everything is in place, but there’s never a perfect time, is there?”
On having no regrets: “I wouldn’t change a thing about what I’ve done in the past because what may have been bad choices have all led me to this moment. I’m incredibly happy because I’ve got my beautiful baby and lovely partner.”
On if she would move back to the UK: “My whole family is in the UK, so it’s been great for Henry to spend time with his cousins. Could I move back? No. I live my life outdoors, surfing, hiking, riding and running along the beach in the sunshine, having barbecues; even though I miss home, I couldn’t do the things I wanted to, personally and professionally.”
On son, Henry, being a movie pro already: “Henry was four months old when I started filming with Hilary Swank in sub-zero temperatures in Michigan last February. Luckily, he was a good sleeper and was feeding on schedule every three hours by then, but I felt so fat and milky and sleep-deprived. It was hilarious watching these massive Michigan teamsters boom in their deep voices across the set, ‘Everything’s gotta stop! Henry’s gotta eat; it’s breast-feeding time’. The cast and crew doted on him.”
I have to agree that sometimes people wait to long for the right time a lot of the time. I guess it leads to people missing out on some opportunities. Minnie is still young yet. She has lots of time to have more kids.
