Molly Sims is in “full nesting mode.” The actress – who is expecting a baby boy with husband Scott Stuber – recently talked to Parade about her pregnancy and getting ready for their little one’s arrival.
On the nursery she shares, “We’re going for something more gender neutral. In case I have a girl next, we have some pink in there and some powder blue. It’s more modern bohemian. It’s turning out super cute. I am so excited. I am in full nesting mode.”
Asked about her cravings – there’s no no junk food on her list.
Sugar. I had three apples, I can down a mango, pineapple, watermelon. Anything cold and crunchy, I love. Birthday cake: I die for. I never liked birthday cake in my life! Not a huge fan of chocolate but I love frozen yogurt. Anything cold, I love.”
Most moms are worrying on how their siblings will react to a new baby. Sims says she’s preparing her dogs.
She revealed, “My girlfriend has an amazing dog company and works with different animals and she actually bought a fake little baby that makes sound. So I’m sitting with the baby and have the dogs look at the little baby boy and see how sweet he is. I know it sounds ridiculous but I am so wanting them to be involved and be a part of it. My dogs have been in my life for so long so we’re practicing with a fake baby!”
As for parenting advice she wants to follow in her mom’s footsteps.
She said, “My mother told me that when your kids are young, be their mother, not their friend. When they’re older, you can be both. She’s my best friend but she’s my mother first. That was the best thing she gave me. She made me respect her and set boundaries. We’re so afraid now with discipline and what it’s going to do to our kids but those boundaries I had helped me for life.”
