"I remember leaving the hospital thinking: 'I have no idea what I am doing," the Age of Adaline star told Stylist UK. I have a life in my hands and I'm not equipped to do this, because I don't have the knowledge I need to take care of the most precious, fragile thing in the world.'"
"It felt like being a passenger on a plane and being told: 'By the way, now you are going to be piloting the plane,'" she continued. "But then you take her home and you figure it out. Sometimes you don't figure it out and even that is a whole new experience."
Even with that, Blake said what has surprised her most about motherhood is "just realizing that it is all going to be OK." She's also been a little shocked by the size of her boobs as of late, telling People her nursing routine hasn't been all smooth sailing during her promotional tour for her new film. "With all the wardrobe changes, one thing I hadn't accounted for was that I didn't have time to pump," she told the mag.
"So my proportions definitely started to, shall we say, increase throughout the day," she continued, dishing on a recent wardrobe malfunction on live TV. "I walked out onstage for one appearance in an outfit that had fit perfectly when I tried it on many hours earlier, but by the time it got on me, I thought, 'Oh, no! This isn't going to cover them up at all!' I was very worried about a wardrobe malfunction."
Luckily, everything stayed in place and Blake was able to avoid what could've been one seriously awkward appearance. Whew.
