Eva Amurri Martino: ‘There’s No Such Thing As Being an Expert Mom’

10/20/2015 at 03:15 PM ET

Eva Amurri Martino considers herself to have a “Type A” personality, but becoming a mother to 14-month-old Marlowe Mae has changed that.

“It’s been an interesting journey for me to learn how to have structure, but to be relaxed about it,” Amurri Martino told reporters at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic in Pacific Palisades on Saturday.

“It’s been great for my personal evolution as well,” she continues.

As far as what has “surprised” Amurri Martino, 30, most about motherhood, it’s the amount of surprises. “I think it was surprising to me that there’s no such thing as being an expert mom. You’re always learning new things,” she explains.

“Every time you learn something, get a handle on something, it all changes. So it’s been the release of accepting the fact that it really is about doing your best. But you’re never going to know it all.”

Eva Amurri Martino on Sharing Her Miscarriage: The Support Has Been ‘Healing’

09/22/2015 at 08:55 PM ET

It’s been over a month since Eva Amurri Martino shared the heartbreaking news that she had suffered a miscarriage at nine weeks pregnant, but the actress and lifestyle expert is still overwhelmed by the outpouring of support.

“I didn’t really know how I was going to feel about sharing, I just knew I felt really strongly about sharing it. I couldn’t have known how healing it was going to be,” Amurri Martino, 30, tells PEOPLE.

“It was an amazing process to hear from other women who had gone through the same thing. My doctor told me the statistics and I was just blown away. There are women all over the world experiencing the pain and heartbreak that I felt.”

She adds, “Unfortunately, the fact that it became a news story dictates more how little people share. I shared because I want to be honest in my life and I thought how disingenuous to be writing this blog and have this huge thing happen in my life and not share.”

Eva Amurri Martino Reveals Miscarriage: ‘This One Little Angel Has Slipped Away’

08/15/2015 at 02:45 PM ET

Eva Amurri Martino has suffered a miscarriage.

The actress revealed on her blog Saturday that she and her husband, 36 Hours host Kyle Martino, had been expecting their second child — a little sibling for daughter Marlowe Mae, who just turned 1 — but their happiness turned to heartache earlier this week.

“I am sharing in the hopes that we can be a light for people going through similar circumstances, and to remind myself and others that there is no shame in voicing our heartbreaks and allowing others to comfort us. A couple of days ago, the baby I was carrying passed away. I was nine weeks pregnant,” Amurri Martino, 30, writes.

Eva Amurri Martino: ‘Mom Shaming Drives Me Crazy’

05/05/2015 at 06:30 PM ET

As a new mother, Eva Amurri Martino thought a baby nurse could help her get in a groove.

But it turns out, the first-time mom just needed to follow her own instincts.

“I find that a lot of people have a lot of advice. You have to do what works for you, whether that’s co-sleeping or getting on a schedule, it has to work for your family,” the actress, 30, tells Cricket’s Circle.

“Our baby nurse got us on a schedule that was stressing me out, so we got rid of it.”

That attitude has been Amurri Martino’s mantra along the way: Finding what works best for her family. And the mother of daughter Marlowe Mae, 8 months, hopes others will share in her sentiments.

“Mom shaming drives me crazy,” she says. “Why does every mom need other moms to do things their way? New motherhood is such a vulnerable and powerful time, but it’s also really hard. Do not judge other moms on how they raise their children.”

Hoppy Easter!

The Easter Bunny has officially hopped into our homes, hid all the eggs and left lots of loot for some bunny to find.

But before the bunny’s big arrival, everyone from Kim Kardashian to Alyson Hannigan went to work creating the best baskets for their littlest loves. Meanwhile, Mario Lopez‘s daughter Gia and son Nico had a mini meet and greet with their new furry friend.

And the snapshots celebs shared on Sunday morning were to dye for: Country star Justin Moore‘s candid moment of his daughters with their colorful confections was eggs-tra adorable.

Eva Amurri Martino’s Daughter Tries Peas for the First Time – and It’s Adorable

01/13/2015 at 01:00 PM ET

It looks like Eva Amurri Martino‘s daughter isn’t so peased about her first food.

On Monday, the actress and her husband, Kyle Martino, attempted to give solids a go with their 5-month-old baby girl. And while Marlowe Mae first pushed away the peas, she eventually gave in to the green vegetable.

The result? A smirk, a shudder and an aftershock that is too adorable to miss.

“Marlowe tried food today for first time and reacted to peas same way I still do,” Martino wrote on Instagram, sharing a clip of the super cute moment.

She may have doubted herself a few times during her “marathon” 36-hour delivery, but after welcoming daughter Marlowe Mae, it’s been smooth sailing for Eva Amurri Martino — at least in the nursing department.

“I was really lucky. She latched right away and she’s a voracious eater,” Martino, 29, tells PEOPLE.

She’s such a good eater that Mom actually needs to step in from time to time. “It can actually be a challenge because she eats a little too fast and I have to slow her down.”

But while the actress says her little lady is a natural, she’s honest about the inevitable early challenges of breastfeeding.
