Tiffani Thiessen Covers Pregnancy Magazine
White Collar star Tiffani Thiessen is featured on the cover of the May 2010 issue of Pregnancy Magazine. In the accompanying interview, the actress talks about her pregnancy, her birthplan and her hopes for her new baby.
On her relationship with husband Brady Smith:
"I’m a wing-it kind of girl, and I’m not one to stress. My husband’s a little more of a worrier, so it will be interesting to see how [fatherhood] works for him. But one of the reasons I married that guy is because I knew he was going to be great with kids."
On her pregnancy cravings:
"I’ve been craving a lot of red meat. I haven’t eaten red meat in 20 years, but I definitely have been eating it during this pregnancy. The baby must need it, so I’m going to give the baby what it wants."
On her pregnancy surprise:
"Not to be too graphic, but the hair growth! I’ve had to shave my legs every day. I didn’t realize it was going to be so drastic and so much. And all these little baby hairs on my stomach? Most of it is little fuzzy blond hairs, but every now and then I’ll get a black hair coming out of my belly button—that’s really pretty."
On her birth plan:
"I’m going to give a Girl Scout effort to hypno-birthing. I’m really excited about it. That’s my plan, but my husband and I are both very, very open to however the child is supposed to come out. Knock on wood it all goes well. I’m not one to judge any woman on how they choose to give birth. It’s individual and I think everyone’s different."
On her hopes for her baby:
"[I hope the baby is] long and lean (laughs). I dream about it because my husband is 6′4″. I also hope the baby has his artistic side. My husband’s an artist and painter, and he is so talented. I hope that comes through in our child. And I hope the child has my laid-back personality, because I think it will help us as parents (laughs) if the child’s not too high-maintenance and just loves life."
