Minnie Driver’s first baby is due next month and in a recent interview with The NY Post, the actress reveals her plans for the future – most likely as a single mom. She talks about her workout schedule, who will be in the delivery room, the names she has chosen and more.
On how she’s felt during her pregnancy and her workout routine: “With this pregnancy I was very sick the first four months. My black Lab Bubba, my forever constant loving companion, knew it. He’d see me lying on the couch. He’d stay with me. He felt for me. But now I’m nearly there and feeling fit. I’m keeping athletic. Running with my dog four miles every day along the beach in Malibu. I’m going to walk this baby out. I always wanted to be a mommy. I’m very into feeling this female thing.”
On who will be in the delivery room when she gives birth: “I’m not married and don’t know if I’ll stay with the guy. It’s great to be an independent creature. Today you don’t need a man anymore. In the old days, a baby without marriage and people would put you out. Today you speak about it on talk shows. My mom and Aunt Serena will be with me, as will my best friends, a midwife and a yoga teacher. And I’ll be the wailing monster at the center.”
On if she’ll use a nanny: “Because of work I’ll need a nanny, but I intend to be a hands-on mommy. I have two houses, so I’ve readied two rooms. Not pink or blue, because I don’t know if it’s a boy or girl, so I’ve just made them neutral and peaceful. Being traditional, if it’s a boy I’ll name him Thomas. A girl, Isabel . . . I just want to stay healthy.”
