“It’s been amazing, the amount of emails and congratulations,” the 36-year-old said of public reaction to her adoption news. “Everyone’s just been so lovely — it’s been really nice.”
“I didn’t think I would be a fan of the swaddling, but the swaddling’s pretty amazing,” she went on to say of the go-to soothing technique she’s come to love. “It sort of looks a bit like a straitjacket — you’re like, ‘Is this child abuse?’ — but for some reason they just love it.”
