Author Jenny Mollen (wife of Jason Biggs) admits in a new essay that she didn’t think she wanted kids and was actually afraid of them. Now that her son Sid arrived just a few weeks ago, everything has changed. She jokes in her new article for Cosmo about her fear of becoming a mom.
Jenny writes, “I was never the girl who yearned for children. I pretended to be interested in other people’s kids, but that was obviously just an act. The truth was, children scared me. I knew that no matter what I did as a parent, I was bound to do some things wrong.” She jokes, “I didn’t want to bring a person into the world just to f— them up and have them send me to voicemail for all of eternity.”
But that all changed the day that Sid arrived. She says that the moment the nurse laid Sid on her chest, everything changed. “I was instantly and completely transformed. In that moment I knew I’d never be the person I was before, because now, I didn’t seem to matter that much. I was no longer concerned with accumulating the most Twitter followers or scoring the best parking spot at Whole Foods. ” Jenny shared, “I wasn’t ready for kids. I was just ready for him.”
