Motherhood is the role Michele was born to play, she revealed to E! in an exclusive interview in April, “Motherhood is beautiful, it’s intense, it’s hard. It’s the greatest thing I’ve ever done,” she shared.
She added, “[Ever] doesn’t call me ‘mama’ anymore. Now he just calls me ‘mom,’ and I’m like, ‘How did this happen?’ And over the monitor this morning at 7 a.m. I just hear, ‘Mom, mom, mom, mom?’ I’m like, ‘Oh my god, I have a 4-year-old.'”
Michele sat down for an interview with Drew Barrymore on Sept. 21 and spoke about how her marriage and motherhood have grounded her. “I just couldn’t see things clearly,” she said on The Drew Barrymore Show. “It was all about my career, you know, I had been so career-focused my entire life. I think to a fault. I think that I had just this sense of drive that created a lot of blind spots for me in my life.”
