Whitney Port Says Her Marriage to Tim Rosenman Requires More ‘Effort’ Since They Became Parents

Whitney Port admits her marriage to Tim Rosenman has changed since they became parents. Now most of their conversations revolve around their 9-month-old baby boy, Sonny. It’s not a bad thing, but the former Hills star knows it’s important to check in with her TV producer husband of two years about about non-kid related matters.

“I think you just have to put in a little bit more effort to make sure that you’re on the same page in life,” Port, who recently partnered with Lactaid, told Us Weekly Video. “It’s just about making more effort to be there for each other emotionally and physically.”

The couple carve out time for each other in the evenings after Sonny goes to sleep around dinnertime. “We’re able to just enjoy and relax,” the designer revealed, adding that happy parents make for a happy baby.

The 33-year-old, who struggled with breast-feeding and to accept her post-baby body, says motherhood is no longer so daunting. “When they’re newborns they’re just so gentle and sensitive,” Port told Us. “But as the time has gone on, I’ve gotten to know him more and he’s not as fragile.”

For any new mamas out there that are having a hard time, Port has a message of hope. “I think the thing that got me through my first couple of months was people telling me that it gets so much easier,” she told Us. “You feel like it’s never going to end, but it eventually does. The baby is less needy and you become more comfortable. Just give it time and know that this too shall pass.”

Port and Rosenman tied the knot in November 2015.
