With a toddler at home and a baby on the way [a girl!] with husband Andy Roddick, Brooklyn Decker opens up to In Touch and says she’s doing her best to juggle it all. “I definitely feel like I’m not quite mastering it all, but I think that’s the feeling for most women these days,” she tells the mag. “We are all wearing several different hats and trying to commit ourselves to several different roles. We’re badasses because of it, but it can be a challenge!”
Brooklyn, co-founder and creative director for the new virtual closet-organization site Finery.com, adds, “I am very new at parenting and I’m also new in starting a company, so these are all things that I am learning as I go. It’s on-the-job training.”
Brooklyn admits dropping her son, Hank, off at day care was a challenge for her. “I just sort of lost it and was ugly-crying for a very long time. I am doing fine now. It’s a wonderful thing, he’s going to school, playing with his friends. I didn’t cry today, so that’s a victory!”
She gushes, “[Hank] is such a good boy, so loving and sweet. I have no idea if I am messing him up, but my mom always tells me you just have to love your child unconditionally, they have to know it and that’s all you have to do — so that’s my goal every day.”
And will there be a third little one for the happy couple someday? “I want a whole team of children, mostly so they can do the cooking and the cleaning around the house,” Brooklyn says. “But we’ll take it one at a time!”
