In a new interview with OK!, celebrity mom Tina Fey spoke about why motherhood has made her become more empathic to others.
Tina told OK!:
The biggest thing you realize when you have a kid is how many other people in your workplace are dealing with that. When you’re single, you’re like, ‘Let’s work ’til 10.’ You don’t care. Once you have a kid, you’re like, ‘Oh yeah, if I’m exhausted because my kid was up all night with a cold, so are 10 other people.’ It makes you more of a sympathetic human being.
Tina, mom to 5-year-old daughter Alice with husband Jeff Richmond, just penned a book (due out in April) called Bossypants, in which she sets out to expel myths about working mothers.
And with Tina’s 30 Rock co-star Jane Krakowski expecting her first child, will Tina be there to offer advice? Only if asks, she insists. Tina said:
I always try to hook them up with something like ‘a good baby nurse,’ or little things, but I only weigh in if someone asks my opinion. That’s the best way to offer it.
Admit it: Do you offer mothering advice without being asked?
