The start of something new! Chloë Sevigny is “charmed” by her 3-month-old son, but is still getting used to her and boyfriend Sinisa Mackovic‘s new normal.
“It will be 7 o’clock and I’m like, ‘What happened to the day? I haven’t even bathed. I haven’t even bathed him,’” the actress, 45, told emmy magazine in Us Weekly‘s first look at the issue hitting stands on Tuesday, August 18. “I’ve always been good at managing a lot. But I don’t know what happened. That aspect of my personality is gone.”
Us confirmed in May that the Boys Don’t Cry star and Mackovic welcomed their baby boy. “All are healthy and happy,” the Massachusetts native’s rep told Us at the time.
Sevigny told the outlet that their son was a “happy accident,” and she didn’t initially think she had “enough patience” to be a mother. “[My mom] was like, ‘Don’t worry, that will come when you get one.’”
The fashion designer wants to raise her little one in New York City and has been feeling “extra cautious” amid the coronavirus pandemic. “Walking down the street, you see people without masks, and you think, ‘What’s the trajectory of their spit? The baby’s in a carriage — is it falling onto him?’” Sevigny asked. “It’s easy to be paranoid.”
When it comes to her postpartum body, the Big Love alum said she has had “a very difficult” experience “being heavy for the first time.”
She told the magazine: “I know it’s all relative. But it’s like, ‘How do I dress? Do I do body con? Do I do loose and flowy?’ But then I just look bigger.”
Ahead of their baby boy’s arrival, Sevigny and Mackovic had a babymoon in Turks and Caicos in January. Four months later, the American Horror Story alum said in an Instagram Live video: “Our baby’s due in 8 days and we don’t have a name yet.”
Before she became a mom, the model credited her youthful skin on “not having had a baby” yet. “I think the baby wear and tear and stress on your body is part of the reason why people say, ‘Why do you still look so young?’” she told W magazine in 2016. “I really think that that unfortunately ages women, especially when they have children in their 30s, not in their 20s. So I think, first and foremost, it’s that and genetics.”
