Maggie Gyllenhaal had a lot to learn when she became a mom.
“I didn’t even know I needed a diaper bag,” the actress said during “Loacker’s Afternoon with Maggie Gyllenhaal” chat on Facebook Live. “Nobody told me and I remember going out with my oldest daughter when she was very young and she pooped and got it everywhere and I just like was like, I don’t know what to do. And then, you know, you learn.”
“I was 28 when my first daughter was born so I was becoming a grown up too in a way,” she added later on in the talk. “I was figuring out who I [was], what I want and how I want to mother and how that’s different from the ways that I was mothered and how it’s similar.”
Gyllenhaal, 41, and her husband Peter Sarsgaard, 48, share two daughters, Ramona, 12, and Gloria Ray, 7.
“I’m looking forward to the adolescence stuff,” she said of her children growing up. “It doesn’t scare me as much, I think, as the infancy. Although I think they’re similar. I think the like rapid amount of change, the massive shifting of things like going from childhood to being a woman and how much you grow and how everything changes. I mean you really are like ‘Alice in Wonderland!’”
