Believe it or not, after having two babies (daughter Apple and son Moses) Gwyneth Paltrow just may be ready to go for the hat trick and add a third to her brood.
The “Shakespeare in Love” actress, who was spotted on her way to meet Madonna at the Kabbalah Center in London earlier today, recently told Harper’s Bazaar that she has babies on the brain.
“I may force myself to do it one more time because the result is so worth it. And also my [late] dad said to me that his only regret in life was that he had only two children and he didn’t have more.”
And given her past experience with the pitfalls of pregnancy, it’s a bit surprising that she’s considering giving it a third go-around. “My mother loved each [pregnancy] to bits; she felt alive and beautiful. I wanted to throw up all the time.”
As for keeping the spark alive in her marriage with Chris Martin, Paltrow says it takes a special effort. “I think you have to make an effort to compartmentalize a little bit. When your children are asleep, you have to open another world ... children and being a parent can really drain that side of you. I would like to say ‘Go away for the weekend.’ But, of course, I’ve done that like one time on my birthday. But it’s important to carve out some time; otherwise, you don’t have an inner life. You just give all day, and then you pass out at night.”
