Actress Rose Byrne added mother to her list of titles after she welcomed her first child, Rocco, in February with her partner, Bobby Cannavale. In a recent interview with the Daily Telegraph Rose opened up about becoming a new mother, and in turn, shaping into her parents.
"You have this huge responsibility you didn't have before - there's someone you have to keep alive. I also like to think Rocco has brought out better qualities in me," said the 37-year-old.
She also joked how many of their friends are sick of her and her partner gushing about their adorable newborn. "We're like, 'Ooh, he wasn't doing that yesterday – that's amazing!' I'm pretty sure everyone who knows us is sick of it."
The mother admits her new role hasn't been easy, often turning to her parents first for advice. "I was already becoming my parents, even before I had Rocco," she said. "You know how that happens? One day, you're like, 'I've turned into my parents!'"
"I’m still in a fog. I haven’t even left my apartment in three months,' Rose shared. ”It takes an hour and forty-five minutes to get out of the house with a baby, and by the time I’m ready, I’m exhausted. I’m done, I’m going back in. I don’t care!"
“I have a new appreciation for motherhood having just become a parent. Really, I’ve turned around a lot... I’m tired, but even so, all of it’s great."
