Helen Hunt knows it isn't normal to have kids when you are in your 40's, but she doesn't mind.
After all - her entire career has been a bit unconventional.
Here's what she said about having her daughter Makena Lei Carnahan in her 40's:
“Part of me wishes that I’d started having children earlier and had four of them. But that’s not the reality. I had to fight like a wild animal to get pregnant with my daughter; I went through a lot of rigorous fertility stuff. I think I have more appreciation of motherhood having had my daughter later. But the upside is that I’m a better person now than I was when I was 20-something. I’m not perfectly patient all the time, but I don’t say, ‘Ugh, I’ve got to pick up my kid at three o’clock.’ The fact that I get to pick up my daughter is great – it’s rare that I roll my eyes.”
Well, that's good!
Rolling your eyes is strictly for those in their 20's or 30's. We've never seen anyone roll their eyes in their 40's.
Anyway it sounds like you are one fantastic mother and we hope to see more of you in the near future!
