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.

Eva Amurri Martino Introduces Daughter Marlowe Mae

09/10/2014 at 01:00 PM ET

Eva Amurri Martino had all her ducks in a row awaiting the arrival of her first child with NBC soccer analyst Kyle Martino.

But nothing could have prepared her for the 36-hour labor and delivery of little Marlowe Mae, who arrived on Aug. 9 — 11 days early.

Mom Susan Sarandon was on the first flight to Los Angeles once she received the call from her daughter and by her side, along with Kyle, during the delivery. “It was great to have her here,” the actress, 29, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

Her “marathon” homebirth at the couple’s California abode was a “really, really, intense experience,” she says.

“I just felt so lucky to have the kind of delivery that I wanted and that there were no complications. At the time, I was like, ‘Maybe I’m crazy’ because it was so intense. I think everyone has that moment when they’re in labor, but once she came out I felt like I could do it again in a second.”

Adds Eva, “I expected it to be a very weepy moment and for me, it was totally surreal.”

It’s time for some sweet lovin’ from her Honey!

Eva Amurri Martino and husband Kyle Martino welcomed their first child over the weekend, her rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

Daughter Marlowe Mae Martino was born on Saturday, Aug. 9, weighing in at 6 lbs., 11 oz.

The actress and her husband, an NBC sports analyst, “are thrilled and enjoying the new addition to their family,” the rep tells PEOPLE.

Not only are the couple first time parents, but the arrival of their daughter also means Amurri Martino’s mother, actress Susan Sarandon, is officially a grandmother — one who will not be called grandma.

“I borrowed this name from a very dear friend of mine who’s from the South, and his grandma was ‘Honey,'” Sarandon has said.

Not long ago, Eva Amurri Martino admitted she was still learning how to dress up her bump. But after spotting her at Monday night’s premiere of Tammy, it’s pretty clear she’s a quick study.

The mom-to-be, who is expecting a daughter, walked the red carpet in a brightly patterned mini dress that hugged all her curves — including her growing baby belly!

And although it’s hard to believe, her chic frock (we love the colorful design!) isn’t from the maternity department.

“Getting super pumped for the #Tammy premiere tonight with @SusanSarandon! I will be wearing the last dress I own that fits my belly,” Amurri Martino Tweeted before the event.

Susan Sarandon is gearing up for one busy summer.

The Oscar winner just began promoting her new movie Tammy — where she plays Melissa McCarthy‘s grandmother in the buddy comedy due in theaters on July 2 — and off screen she is about to experience the real thing for the first time.

Her daughter, actress Eva Amurri Martino, 29, is expecting a baby girl with husband Kyle Martino, 33, later this summer.

“I’m very excited to be a grandmother. It’s going to happen soon. She’s due in August,” Sarandon, 67, told PEOPLE at the Coach Summer Party on the Highline in New York on Tuesday. “I’m making my way to L.A. and cleared August and most of September to be with her.”

She adds, “I’m not sure I’ll be in the delivery room, but I’ll be available for whatever she needs.”

Like all first time moms-to-be, Eva Amurri Martino is throwing herself into baby preparation.

The expectant actress, who will welcome a baby girl in late summer, is also mastering another very valuable skill: how to style her changing silhouette.

“I’m learning how to dress for my new body shape,” Amurri Martino, 29, says in the May issue of O magazine, which spotlights actresses of all different body types as part of their ‘How to Love the Skin You’re In’ theme.

“People say you can wear your regular clothes, but it’s not true! Everything has to be longer, especially shirts.”

And just like the outfit she wore for the shoot — a white eyelet skirt from Elizabeth and James, a powder pink polka dot Sportsmax top and a lace jacket from Ann Taylor — Amurri Martino is all about accentuating her greatest asset.

10 Celeb Mom-to-Be Looks We’re Loving Right Now

04/07/2014 at 02:00 PM ET

It’s hard enough getting dressed up when you’re not pregnant, so we commend anyone who can pull together a polished ensemble while expecting a baby.

Forget about navigating the latest trends. Just searching for styles that complement your growing curves can be exhausting. The key is to find flattering pieces that make you feel great.

Drew Barrymore, who is expecting her second girl this month, really said it best. “It’s about feeling good in clothes and knowing you can get dressed up in the evening … but there’s just no such thing as perfection. So if you’re trying to get there, you’re just torturing yourself.”

There are plenty of star moms who get it right. And we’d like to give them kudos. Below are our fave maternity looks for every occasion.
