Megan Fox has opened up that after the birth of her son, she will be more careful about the way she portrays herself in the media.
While promoting ‘This is 40’, Fox told the Daily Mail [via US Weekly], “It changes your perspective about being overly sexual in a film when you have a baby. I’m going to be more cautious about choosing films because I’m already thinking about when he’s in school and his friends are going to be showing him my photo shoots with me in a bikini and he’s going to be horrified. So that will deter me from making some of the choices I made before.”
She also talks about her weight gain during her pregnancy, saying, “I only gained 23 pounds when I was pregnant and I’m still 10 pounds heavier, but I don’t want to kill myself trying to get back into shape because it’s not a priority right now. I’m too in love with Noah and I don’t want to be away from him. I just want to be home.”
Of course, weight was not the only pregnancy-related issue for Fox – “Having an infant is difficult. It’s a lot of work and I didn’t hire any help because I overestimated my own abilities. I had no idea how difficult babies could be, so Brian and I were exhausted. You never sleep and you’re awake all night and your entire life is devoted to this little thing that needs you constantly. And I love it. It’s what I’ve wanted to do since I was a little girl. I always wanted to mother things and I constantly had a doll I was taking care of. I don’t receive the same satisfaction from my career as I do from being a mother so I’m really happy. But two weeks ago I said to Brian, ‘We have to get a night nurse or we’re going to get a divorce because someone’s got to sleep in this house or we’re going to kill each other.’”
