Helen Hunt has long been one of my favorite actresses in Hollywood, although it’s been awhile since we’ve seen here on the big screen. The celebrity mom recently opened up to Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper, where she talks about motherhood and becoming a mom in her 40’s. Here are some highlights of what she says:
On having her daughter in her 40s: “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.”
On not dressing up for the school run: “I get up at 5.45 in the morning. I feed the dog, feed the cat, make breakfast, make lunch for my daughter and then we do half an hour of piano practice together and half an hour of reading. I drop her off at school, write a little bit, have a meeting and go to yoga. So when would I have the time to put on a skirt and a matching blouse? That’s just not happening.”
On her stepson, Emmett: “Being a stepmum is kind of calculus parenting, as in more complicated parenting. With my daughter I do my best to figure out what’s right for her. With my stepson I like to think of myself in some fairy-godmother position; I’m just hovering around, wishing him and everyone in the family well and chiming in when I’m asked. He’s very lucky that he has four great parents.”

It looks like almost everyone in Hollywood took advantage of the warm weather as there plenty of celebrity sightings all around town! Actress Helen Hunt was seen shopping with her lovely daughter Makena along with a friend in Los Angeles, Calif. on Sunday afternoon.
Makena is gorgeous, isn’t she? I wonder if she’s going to one day follow her famous mother’s footsteps into the entertainment world, too? She sure is growing up to be a stunner!

Even thought it’s the middle of the summer, Helen Hunt was spotted dropping daughter Makena’lei off at school on Thursday (July 28). The award-winning actress has expressed that she has no desire to see her own daughter follow in her footsteps of becoming an actress because Hollywood and the entertainment industry is “a very adult place to be.”
