Poppy Montgomery hopes her son will be a 'little naughty'

PoppyWhile back in Australia for a fleeting visit last month, Poppy Montgomery spoke to NW about upcoming motherhood and wanting her child to be a ‘little naughty.’ Poppy and boyfriend, Adam Kaufman’s son is due in late December.

On body changes: When you’re pregnant your body changes — like it or not. I have these enormous breasts which I always thought I wanted but now I realize I don’t.

Poppy hopes that she will be able to work until the baby arrives and return to Without A Trace soon after: I’m hoping to work all the way up until I go into labor and then, God willing, I can have a natural birth and go almost straight back to work. I love working on Without A Trace and I love my Without A Trace family.

On moving back to Australia: I would love to make my own films out of here but I always see myself living in both places. I’ll be sort of a "citizen of the world"! I want my baby to know where I’m from. My whole child and formative years were spent here – getting kicked out of every private school in Sydney.

Is Poppy worried about her son being naughty? — No, no. She thinks naughtiness is good.

A little naughtiness is a good thing – it shows there’s some spirit. But I don’t know if I’d want my child being expelled from as many schools as I was.

I was a little taken aback when I first read that she wanted to go straight back to work after her baby is born but I realize is because she’s never had children before. Once she hold her baby she will be overcome with so much love she’ll find it hard to leave her precious baby or at least I hope so.

From articles I’ve read, Poppy has always seemed so carefree, not ready for kids or animals so she could take off at a moment’s notice. Well her life is definitely going to change when that baby arrives, and I hope she’ll be ready for the change. Babies take a lot of care and attention. She’ll probably have a nanny with her at work, but I hope she’ll be a hands-on mom at home.

You can tell this is her first pregnancy just from this comment. ;) It’s fine if she wants to go back to work, lots of women do, but it sounds like she thinks pregnancy and labor are a kind of wham-bam thing. Oh Poppy…

i laughed at that comment too! she’ll learn very quickly. my cousin was the same ‘i’ll be right back at work, maybe i’ll nurse for a week but i want to get right back to work, it’s important to me’ 2 years later she was still at home, nursing and pregnant with baby number 2!!
