Katie, 28, revealed how joyful motherhood is in the March issue of Bazaar magazine. She explains how easy she found pregnancy with Suri, now 9 months old – she had no morning sickness and no cravings besides cupcakes. “I felt so proud to be having a baby and so excited,” she tells Bazaar. “And I felt closer to other women – to my sisters, to my mom. I felt empowered, like, ‘I’ve given birth. I did it! There’s nothing I can’t handle.’ ”
Motherhood, too, has been easy. “I’ve really enjoyed this time that I have taken to be with Suri as well as the challenges of the first couple of months: feeding and pumping, learning to decipher what each cry means – is she hungry? Is she tired? Does she need a fresh diaper? – and figuring out how to really help her.”
Asked if she wants more kids, Katie smiles and says: “Definitely.”
And, although she took time off to be a mom, she also wants to make more movies. Last week, Variety reported that she had dropped out of the sequel to 2005’s Batman Begins and was in talks to star in Mad Money opposite Queen Latifah.
“I have a whole new set of responsibilities,” she says. “My work is very important to me. My family is very important to me. When I go to work, it will be the right thing, worth my time and worth my time away from my family.”
