Being out and about when Arthur is hungry isn’t about to stop Selma Blair from feeding him.
“The only time he cries is if he’s hungry,” the 39-year-old Anger Management actress tells PEOPLE. “We all have nipples. I don’t care who I offend; my baby wants to eat. If I can’t get a cover over me quick enough, so be it.”
Her devoted attention to Arthur’s nutrition is what led Selma to partner with the non-profit organization called get REAL for kids which is aimed at educating parents about food choices when it comes to feeding themselves and their children.
“Get REAL for kid is started by my very best childhood friend, Dr. Sue, so it made sense to get involved,” she says.
Nourishing myself correctly is very new to me, so I’m learning as well. It was important for me to be a real mom who loves her kid and needs to have more energy for herself and is trying to learn how to do this.”
Just like any first-time mom, Selma admits she’s “really obsessed” with her 8-month-old boy and considers herself lucky that she was able to spend most of his infancy at home with him.
“I never want to leave his side,” she says. “I’m one of those hovering mothers and I know it’s really important to have an independent child, so I’m trying to back off, but it’s hard. I love him so much, and he’s so funny and cute to me.”
According to his doting mama, Arthur has a very “sweet” and “outgoing” personality.
“He loves music, he loves to bang on the drums,” she shares. “He [also] doesn’t mind being teased, he’s an adrenaline junkie. He likes to be thrown up in the air.”
