If you want a second kid, do it before you second guess it. [MUSIC] I think if you wait until you know it's too late. The thing about baby number two is that they're often a surprise, as was mine. I was not planning baby number two, I wasn't ready for baby number two, but he just snuck in there. That's what number twos sometimes do, they just sneak. I'm in a good place right now with one. I would love him to have like a brother or sister you know. Maybe an older brother, he'll get one One one day or something too but, it's a good easy now with one. If there's one thing motherhood should have taught you by now, it's that you have no control. Go for it. Don't worry about things. Don't worry about how it's going to happen, whether they're too close in age. Don't plan it. Because it's not going to go as planned, most of the time. I got jealous of somebody. I didn't think I was ready for a second kid, and then a good friend of mine got pregnant with her second, and I was like I think I want that. [BLANK_AUDIO] Well I Always say two is not like one. Because when you're pregnant with your first child, you still can just look after yourself. I know when I was pregnant, I made special smoothies, I read every email about what was developing at that time and what I should eat, but by the second pregnancy because you have a toddler to look after, yeah, it wasn't the same level of attention. I actually felt bad [MUSIC] When you have your first born, everybody acts like you're the first person ever to have a child. When you have the second one, it's like been there, done that.
