The Lord of the Rings actress opens up about her second pregnancy and reveals how it’s benefitting her relationship with her son Milo

With the possible side effects of pregnancy including morning sickness, exhaustion and various aches and pains, it can make look after another child more tricky than usual.

But actress Liv Tyler, 37, insists this isn’t the case for her. Instead, she says being pregnant is making her a better mother to her nine-year-old son, Milo.


‘The most fun thing about being pregnant again is having those mom hormones flowing around,’ Liv says in Town & Country magazine. ‘You’re more present in your body, and it’s making me a better mother for Milo.’


The actress, who’s thought to be five months pregnant, says that her second pregnancy couldn’t have come at a better time in her life.

‘I mean, for seven years I’d been saying I wanted to do an HBO show with an ensemble cast [The Leftovers],’ says Liv. ‘And I wanted a house in the country. And getting to have another child? If you knew me well, they were the things my heart longed for. And they all came together, like a speeding freight train, in one year.’


But the biggest benefit of pregnancy? Avoiding exercise, says Liv. ‘It’s not fun being on a diet or thinking, “Oh my God, I have to go to SoulCycle every day”.’
