In fact, one of the ways she keeps her man smiling is by ridding her wardrobe of sweats!
You probably won't find any of those comfy suckers in the 41-year-old's drawers anytime soon!
"You can't do sweatpants… ladies, number one cause of divorce in America, sweatpants, no!"
Even though they're the comfiest thing EVER, don't do it! LOLz!

But on to the more important things…
Like how motherhood is treating the actress and her daughter, Esmeralda!
Apparently the baby is starting to get the hang of sleeping through the night — kinda!
"But you never know, right, something random can happen and she's just suddenly not sleeping through the night and you're like, wait, I thought we were sleeping through the night, what's up?! Why does it always happen at three or four in the morning?!"
LOLz! Waking up in the middle of the night is the worst!
Obviously, being a mother herself, Eva found an intense appreciation for her own mom after having Esme!
"Now I understand so much, my mother's never gotten more 'I love you so much mommy' texts, I mean, randomly… ya, I get it now."
Being a parent definitely changes you for the better!
The whole experience is so rewarding and we're sure the actress' mother is loving all of the "I love you" texts Eva is sending her!
