Anne Hathaway has a baby on the way. The actor shared the exciting news Wednesday on Instagram, revealing to the world that she and her husband, Adam Shulman, are expecting three years after the birth of their first child, Jonathan Rosebanks Shulman.
"It’s not for a movie," Hathaway captioned a photo of her growing baby bump. She also hinted that this pregnancy hasn't been so easy. "All kidding aside, for everyone going through infertility and conception hell, please know it was not a straight line to either of my pregnancies. Sending you extra love," she wrote.
Hathaway didn't explain what her difficulties were specifically,, but she has been very willing to have honest discussions about motherhood. In 2017 she even advocated for paid parental leave at the United Nations, sharing how the experience of becoming a mom had been a transformative one that changed her priorities.
"I remember I experienced a shift in consciousness that gave me the ability to maintain my love of career and also cherish something else, someone else, so much, much more," she said. "Like so many parents, I wondered how I was going to balance my work with my new role as parent, and in that moment I remember that the statistic for the U.S.'s policy for maternity leave flashed through my mind."
Speaking to Glamour last year, Hathaway also opened up about how motherhood helped her come to terms with difficulties she faced in the past.
“How Johnny is going to feel about himself will have so much to do with how I feel about myself in front of him,” she said. “If I’m feeling insecure, I am very careful that I don’t show that. But I also work really hard to acknowledge that place, give room for that place, and then release myself from that place. I’m more loving now, and that includes toward myself.”
