Liv Tyler is a busy mama!
The 38-year-old pregnant actress — who welcomed a son named Sailor in February 2015 with fiancé, David Gardner — recently opened up about how she juggles motherhood on top of all of her other responsibilities.
“Every day I’m like, ‘Oh my God!’ But then I stop and take a deep breath and just focus on gratitude and how grateful I am for all the opportunities that I have,” she told E! News. “I always say this little mantra to myself that the Universe only gives you what you can handle, so then I say thank you for giving me so much because I can handle it. It’s really fun, and my baby’s so sweet, he’s going to be 1 tomorrow.”

It helps that Dave has been supportive and helpful throughout the whole thing! “I think what works so well in our relationship is we both work very hard and we love adventure and our jobs are so interesting and different, and we like that, but we also at the core are focused on our family,” she said. “That’s what really makes us tick. So we kinda go out and come back together and our children are always the most important things to us.”

The couple recently announced that they are expecting their second child together, which is wonderful news for the The Leftovers star — who is also mom to 11-year-old son, Milo, with her ex-husband, Royston Langdon— considering she’s “always wanted to have a big family.”
And although the couple is eager to tie the knot, they’ve put a wedding on hold to tend to their growing family. “We kinda talk about it, but we have a lot on our plate right now,” she added.
