Gwyneth Paltrow is a very busy woman. Between filming her third ‘Iron Man’ movie, keeping up with her website and newsletter, GOOP, she’s also married with two young children, 8 and 6. When she was asked recently if she thought she could have more children, she says she’s done!
On having more children: “I don’t know if I can go back to diapers. I don’t think so. I would love to, but I sort of feel like I don’t know if I can go back to diapers and things like that. I’m so past that, I think I may have missed the window. I think if maybe when Moses was three, I would have done it, or four even, but now he’s six and such a guy, I feel like I’m out of the baby phase. If it happens, it happens.”
Becoming a mom completed her: “I feel like motherhood has given me all my happiness and a real life: a husband, my children and everything that’s invested in that. Every woman is different, but for me that’s where I’ve gotten my real happiness.”
But she’s a less attentive mother in Los Angeles: “When I’m in LA, I’m always packing things in. I tend to be really busy – my doctors are out there, Apple’s orthodontist, that kind of thing. Plus, that’s where I focus on movie stuff and I see all my friends. It changes more – I tend not to spend all my time with the kids.”
She’s so stressed out and busy now: “I find that I get stressed out when I try to do too many things at once, and so I try not to. I feel very stressed out if I’m trying to cook and help the children with their homework and answer emails and talk to my lawyer or whatever. I feel really overwhelmed. So I try to just do things one at a time.”
She doesn’t mind aging — for now: “I like being older. It’s nice to really know yourself and feel relaxed. And I actually think I look better now than I did when I was 24, so I’m very comfortable with myself.”
I think she’s right about being more beautiful. I know a lot of people can’t really stand her, but I think she’s beautiful, and even more so over the last couple years!
