Vanessa Lachey has been enjoying every moment of motherhood since giving birth to her son Camden five months ago. The new mom says that it’s been wonderful, but admits that “me time” is very important for moms.
The actress admits that just four days after giving birth, she needed a quick break. “Well, I’ll never forget day four after Camden was born. I was in bliss the first three days and by day four, I had a moment where I was crying and just needed a second. I was flooded by emotions. I remember needing to get out of the house. I was like, ‘I need me right now.’ I went out, put the windows down in my car, and One Republic’s ‘Feel Again’ came on the radio. I turned it up and felt so much better. I came home, took a shower without any interruption. It is so important to make ‘me’ time.”
Vanessa also shared that she and Nick are great at working out Camden’s schedule as a team. Nick takes morning duty and Vanessa takes the night owl shift. “Nick usually gets up with Cam around 7:30 AM. He is just a morning guy. He’ll get up and feed Cam. And I do the nighttime stuff. I bathe him, put him down, and sing him a lullaby.”
