Project Runway judge Nina Garcia is currently six months along in her second pregnancy, and the 45-year-old has revealed that things are a bit more tough this time around. Garcia, who is also the fashion director for Marie Claire, and husband David Conrod are already parents to 3-year-old son Lucas, and the busy mom is finding it a challenge to keep up with Lucas, while being pregnant.
In an interview with People, Garcia said of her pregnancy thus far,
Everything is harder because I have a little one at home that needs a lot of my attention and having a summer pregnancy is a lot harder than a fall pregnancy. The hot New York heat has not been helpful.”
Of her cravings this time around, she shared, “I’ve been eating a lot of watermelon. Lots of fruits and vegetables but mainly watermelon. It tastes better than ever so I’ve been indulging in that.”
Garcia also said that big brother Lucas is looking forward to welcoming the new baby and taking on his new role, “He’s excited and he gets it. We told him, and he’s very happy to be a big brother. He’s waiting for the baby to come more than we are.”
Though Garcia is feeling a bit overwhelmed, she credits her husband with helping her through, “He is pampering me and helping a lot with our son. Right now [Lucas] wants a lot of attention, so my husband helps with the bathing and the feeding and putting him to bed while I’m resting. He’s been so great.”
