We got off the Clash of the Titans tour and I said that my wife and I were working on having a baby and sure enough we found out that she was pregnant. So I told them nine months in advance that I wasn’t going to tour in September so I could witness the birth of my first son.
When I got pregnant, I knew I wasn’t anywhere in my career, that I had not arrived. I was still on my adventure, and so I said to the child in my belly, ‘I am so happy for you to come, but you should know I’m still on my way, and you’ll have to come with me and be in my rucksack.’
When you’re pregnant, make sure your husband rubs your feet – and your neck and your back and everything.

I always felt, even before I got pregnant, that it’s better to accentuate your curves. A lot of women try to tuck their butt in or kind of slouch because they’re trying to hide. Obviously, you can’t suck it in, but it’s important to really show off the belly.

I had a terrible dream when I was pregnant; I dreamt the baby had a ventriloquial mouth, but there was no hand hole; I had to flick the mouth down to get words out.
I was more active pregnant than I ever was not pregnant. I was doing Body By Simone five days a week. That definitely helped me shed the weight after giving birth. But it’s all smoke and mirrors, too. People on Instagram forget that you’re showing them what you want them to see. We have filters.
When I was at primary school, we had this theory that if you ate an egg, it meant you’d get pregnant and give birth to a chicken or another egg. It was something we dared together. I avoided eggs for years, but now they’re my favourite food.

To put it mildly, I’m not crazy about the implication that pregnant women are incapable of deciding for themselves.

What calmed me down finally was when my girlfriend got pregnant.
Kids kill a show! It’s, like, a fun concept when the character is pregnant, but then if a show runs for a while, I’m sorry, but it gets annoying when it starts to talk. You get a child actor in there, and unless that child actor is freakin’ awesome, it’s going to be annoying.

So much of my body changed from being pregnant. My hair got so much longer from all of the multivitamins and pregnancy vitamins, like the New Chapter’s Every Woman Vitamin I’ve been taking – it’s a lot of folic acid. I know a lot of moms cut their hair, but I just want to keep mine long.
We’re seeking out such grossness in human behavior and want such mindless entertainment. ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ and some of these other shows are more racist. Or ’16 and Pregnant.’ Getting rewarded for being pregnant when you’re a teenager? Are you serious?
It’s an established fact. Some women can’t stand being pregnant, getting big and bloated, and hauling around a giant stomach, and some women, for reasons probably understood by Darwin, love it.
I want to use my voice to better health care for pregnant women.
I’ve been eating a porridge of millet for breakfast, something that my doula recommended I eat. It doesn’t taste that great, but it’s supposed to be really nourishing for the baby, and you’re not supposed to eat any gluten when you’re pregnant. I’ve been making pancakes out of it and add berries.
Because I was newly pregnant, I was sick as a dog, yet I knew all my lines from a year before.
The second time I was pregnant friends would give me rubber bands to gnaw, because the first time, I had chewed things like a rubber bit that fell off the dishwasher. I remember driving once in the rain and the smell of my rubber-soled shoes in the damp caused me to pull over and start chomping on the rubber mat.
I’ve got seven kids. The three words you hear most around my house are ‘hello’, ‘goodbye’, and ‘I’m pregnant’.
