How Keri Russell will greet her baby

04/24/2007 at 02:48 PM ET

Her baby may not be born yet, but Keri Russell already knows how she would probably react upon meeting her bundle of joy. The actress jokes that she won’t be fawning over her newborn the way her character in her film Waitress does over hers.

I’m totally the opposite – I’m like, ‘Wait that’s it? Ewwwh! [Husband] Shane [Deary], this isn’t what I wanted. That’s not what I had in mind.’

Keri and Shane are expecting their first child early this summer.

Haha, I thought the same thing too, I think all newborns are kinda grose, even my own baby. Of course I thought she was beautiful and swooned over her, I still thought the slimeys were grose. But now, after 16 months of being pooed, peed and puked on, I wouldn’t mind having those few slimey moments back. Haha. Im sure she will find her own way in seeing the beauty of her newborn.

ang on

LOL!!where’s the angelic light glowing over the head?where’s those big solemn eyes gazing lovingly at u? i’m sure the kid will win her over soon enough. do we know what it is yet?

LOL! I’d imagine her mother’s love will win out once Keri actually gives birth to her child! Still I could see her point about doubting her mothering abilities at this point, and the rest of it (ie. the “gifts” Sarah described in her post, lol!) after a year isn’t something to look forward too either. Still it’s all part of being a mother, I guess. :)

PSB on

I said the same thing. I made a deal with my husband that he would be on snot and vomit duty, because I wouldn’t be able to do it. Now I clean up all sorts of disgusting things and usually I don’t even think twice about it. It’s amazing how “un-gross” gross things are when they’re on your own baby.
