Jenny Mollen Wasn’t Ready to Be a Mother – Until She Became One

03/13/2014 at 09:00 PM ET

Many women dream of motherhoodJenny Mollen was just never one of them.

“I was never the girl who yearned for children. I pretended to be interested in other people’s kids, but that was obviously just an act,” the author of I Like You Just the Way I Am writes in an humorous and moving essay for Cosmopolitan.

Mollen’s fears surrounding the possibility of motherhood boiled down to one issue: making a mistake.

“The truth was, children scared me. I knew that no matter what I did as a parent, I was bound to do some things wrong,” she explains. “I didn’t want to bring a person into the world just to f— them up and have them send me to voicemail for all of eternity.”

But then Mollen and her husband, Orange Is the New Black‘s Jason Biggs, discovered they were expecting their first child and the reality of pending parenthood set in. As she waited for their baby boy to arrive, the mom-to-be was left wondering how she had room in her heart for anyone other than her beloved pet pooch, Teets.

“I wasn’t completely connected,” she shares. “I didn’t know how I could love something more than my dogs. Or how I could housebreak something not motivated by bacon strips.”

Soleil Moon Frye Introduces Son Lyric Sonny Roads

03/12/2014 at 03:00 PM ET

For Soleil Moon Frye, there’s one pretty big advantage of third time motherhood.

“With my first [daughter Poet Sienna Rose, 8½], I was so crazy about making sure everything was perfect,” Frye, who welcomed son Lyric Sonny Roads on Feb. 10, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

“I was more laid-back with Jagger [Joseph Blue, 6 next week], and now it’s even more so. I try not to beat myself up. We’re too hard on ourselves.”

That’s not to say pregnancy itself was a walk in the park. “I had morning sickness — morning, noon and night,” she says with a laugh. “And the last month or two was really hard — it was hard to get out of bed, hard to move around. I think because he was so big.”
