Rose Byrne welcomed her first child, son Rocco, into the world in February, and while it's been a tough slog she says parenting is the best thing she has ever done.
In an interview with the Daily Telegraph, the actress said: "You have this huge responsibility you didn't have before - there's someone you have to keep alive. I also like to think Rocco has brought out better qualities in me."
Earlier this year the 37-year-old admitted the transition to motherhood hasn't been all smooth-sailing. In fact, at some points it got so chaotic she barely left her apartment.
"I’m still in a fog,” she told news.com.au. “I haven’t even left my apartment in three months.
“It takes an hour and forty-five minutes to get out of the house with a baby, and by the time I’m ready, I’m exhausted. I’m done, I’m going back in. I don’t care!”
It’s a struggle millions of women around the world can relate to – becoming a mother certainly takes some getting used to – but one that is simultaneously hard and the best thing that has ever happened to you.
“I’m tired, but even so, all of it’s great,” she said. “You definitely go into a cocoon.”
