This is 40 star Megan Fox gets gorgeous on the cover of Marie Claire UK‘s March 2013 issue, on newsstands this Thursday (January 31). The new mom opens up about the joys of family life with husband Brian Austin Green and their son Noah, 4 months.
On the joys of new motherhood: “I’ve never been validated by work or fame or Hollywood or any of that. I recognize the blessings when they come – like, I recognize I’m so lucky to work with Judd [Apatow] – but the ultimate satisfaction for me is being with my son. All I wanted to do my whole, whole life was have a baby and, now, I’ve finally done it. I just want to give Noah as much of myself as I can. And I want to have more kids. That is where my heart is.”
On balancing work and family life: “It’s very hard for me to do [professional] stuff, because I feel like this isn’t my job anymore. My job is to be with [Noah].”
On her husband Brian Austin Green: “I just think we got lucky. I believe he’s my soulmate. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t take work, because we are very, very different. But we are tolerant of each other and we try to be patient with each other, and I don’t try to turn him into me and he knows not to try to turn me into him. He really is amazing. I should never, ever even think about complaining.”
On cooking: “I can cook, but I also want everything to look beautiful on the plate – then I get upset when people eat it. Everyone just tears through it and that makes me sad. It’s not a rewarding experience for me to cook.”
