Lawrence begins by addressing how difficult it is to talk about parenting. “It’s scary to talk about motherhood,” she said. “Just because it’s so different for everyone. If I say, That was great in the first place, some people will think, ‘In the beginning, that wasn’t great for me, and it felt bad.’ Luckily, I have a lot of girlfriends who have been honest. Who said, ‘It’s scary. You may not connect immediately. You may not fall in love right away. ‘ So I feel very ready to be forgiven. I remember going for a walk with one of my best friends at 9 months old and saying, ‘Everybody kept saying I would love my baby more than my cat. But that’s not true. Maybe I will love him as much as my cat? ‘”
“The morning after I gave birth, I felt like my whole life had started all over again,” she continued. “Like, ‘It’s day one of my life now.’ I just stared. I was very in love.

Now I hear a baby crying in the restaurant and I’m like, Awwww, precious”.
“A lot of my films in the past were about my mother, my childhood,” she added. “I wonder what will happen now that I will witness someone else’s childhood. And I wonder what he would talk about with his therapist. ‘She won’t knock me down. She kissed my mouth. She asked me not to go to college. ‘”

He will be driving one day. He would be a goofy teenager and get behind the wheel of a car. And I would be like, Good night! You know? Like, who sleeps? “
She added Cy almost wanted to laugh. “I mean Cy’s euphoria was just – God, that’s impossible,” she told the magazine. “I always told him, I love you so much that is not possible.”
