Acting is all about timing, and Malin Akerman seems to have applied that skill to parenthood as well.
The actress spoke to PEOPLE at the AKID Brand Egg Hunt in Los Angeles on Sunday about waiting until she was in her 30s to start a family.
“I feel like it was the perfect timing,” Akerman says. “There’s no rush.”
She explains, “I needed my 20s to grow up, and now I feel like I’m a woman. I know a little bit more of what I’m doing, and I have a clearer idea of what kind of mother I want to be.”
