Sienna Miller looks lovely in the January 2013 issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK. The first-time mother spoke about giving birth, her post-baby body and developing her parenting skills.
Miller told Bazaar, “It’s still the most surreal thing, that you can create, that I grew this life inside my stomach — her eyeballs, everything — every little fiber. And I’d expected that she’d be this extension of me and I’d instantly understand who she was because she’d come from me, and then you realize that they are their own people entirely. Very connected to you, of course. But they’re their own person. It’s the best, the greatest thing in the world. I would do that day a million times again. I would do that day, every day. I loved it.”
Another thing that’s changed is Miller’s relationship with her body. “My body’s a completely different thing to me, it’s not mine – all the attachment to its flaws or any aesthetic attachment is gone. You understand what breasts are for; and I have such enormous respect for my body because of what it can do.”
The actress also spoke of her desire to hold off on hiring a nanny. “It’s just been the three of us, which was amazing, and exhausting. We are going to get a nanny, but it felt important to first learn for myself who I was as a parent.”
