"Everything takes on a new meaning," she gushed. "It took a long time to get pregnant—for me the baby was such a blessing that the most important thing for me was that I was active," she continued. "I was never obsessive about dieting or exercise. I didn't care how much I gained. I just wanted to make sure he was healthy."

"He's been on set with me every single day, always laughing and giggling and happy," she said of James. "He does a really good job of sleeping through the night, he's just an awesome child." She added: "I'm always trying to set up a way he can be with me, that's why I bring him to set with me. I want him to know his mother's with him, because that's the way I was raised."
