Hollywood actress and mother-of-two Emily Blunt recently opened up to Extra TV about the birth of her newborn daughter, Violet, and how she is coping with motherhood the second time around.
"I wonder if it's the second kid - you're so relaxed, and then they're relaxed," Emily pondered before joking, "Your energy is not like, 'Oh my God, am I gonna kill this child by something that I'm doing?'"
The mother to Hazel, two, and Violet, three months, also shared how her eldest daughter had dealt with the arrival of her first sibling.
"She's taken to it well... She was sort of indifferent, and then really loved her."
Emily also recently spoke out about the societal pressures of motherhood and a "mummy cult" that she feels exists between women.
“I think there is a huge societal pressure on women when it comes to motherhood, this sort of mummy cult that goes on. And I think it sort of makes women feel that they have to be a bit defensive about the choices that they make, whether they want to be a mother, whether they don’t, whether they want to breastfeed, whether they don’t... In the domestic world, I think it’s when women can be a bit cruel about each other, more so than any other environment."
