They say that having a baby is always easier the second time around.
But, Peter Sarsgaard isn't convinced.
He and wife Maggie Gyllenhaal are expecting their second child, but being an only child himself, he has no idea how their 5-year-old daughter Ramona is going to react.
"[She] doesn't know what she's in for. I've seen kids with siblings — I don't have any siblings, so I don't know — but they generally go for about five minutes, 'Oh, cool! Anyway, what are we going to do now? Can we return it?' I think it gets boring quickly, at first, and it takes a while for them to bond."
As for Maggie's pregnancy cravings, Peter admits:
"She has not been into eating meat. It's been recommended for the iron, I guess. We ordered it and we both kind of looked at it, because I don't eat a lot of meat either, so we just sort of sat there and thought about it."
Ha! Did anyone actually eat it??
And don't think he and Maggie are going to reveal the sex of their baby. They're keeping that info private for now. He adds:
"It's the nice thing about knowing the gender of a child: you don't have to call it 'it,' which gets really weird after seven months in so we've been trying out a few names, but nothing solid."
Well, if the child is anything like the adorable Ramona, we can only imagine how sweet and cute he or she will be.
