Malin Akerman attended the 2013 Television Critics Associations’ Summer Press Tour for Disney/ABC at the Beverly Hilton Hotel last Sunday (August 4). At the event the Trophy Wife actress – who gave birth to her son Sebastian in April – said she’s a little nervous being a working mom.
“I had been looking in to television plots for a couple of years,” Akerman told People. “I get to be on home base now and get to go home and tuck my baby in to bed so that’s an extra, added bonus.”
“This will be the first time ever being a mom and working so I am a little bit nervous, a little bit anxious, but I am excited,” the 35-year-old also told reporters.
Referring to Roberto Zincone – she added, “I’ve got a really, good supportive husband so we will figure it out but we will see what I am capable of. We’ll see if I get fired — I hope not.”
She also shared Sebastian’s small milestones.
“He smiled already at his two-month mark. It’s the most awesome thing. It’s so stupid in the most incredible way. You are like ‘Oh my, God! He moved a finger! Did you see that?!’ They turn over, they poop in your hands and it’s great — right after you changed the diaper and it is all over you. It is amazing.”
Akerman continued, “I am such a tomboy myself. I have scars all over my body from climbing trees and riding bikes with the boys. It’s been a part of my life so I am so excited to just play sports with him once he’s [old enough]. He’s great. He’s a happy boy.”
