Worthington's evolution has seen her step away from the spotlight to embrace being a mum, wife and businesswoman. In the new issue of InStyle Australia, cover star Lara Worthington confirms she’s pregnant. The 28-year-old, candidly chats about her new life, new career and now a new baby on the way.
What is the most important thing motherhood has taught you?
“Patience. Rocket teaches me something new every day. He’s like a sponge. He’s learning so much so it’s nice to watch the world through his eyes. I want to teach him all the time.”
You’re now expecting baby number two. How do you feel about having another child?
“I’m just excited that Rocket gets a sibling and that they’ll be so close [in age] together. I’m sure it might seem full-on at the beginning for me, and it’s probably a lot harder than it is now, but when they get older they can share their life together. I have a brother and Sam has a sister so it’s nice when someone always has your back.”
How is pregnancy treating you this time around?
“I’m feeling fine. I had a great pregnancy with Rocket and touch wood it will be the same this time. I don’t really get morning sickness but I do have to eat consistently to keep my energy up. I think in the next few months I’ll go into recluse mode again. I enjoy just being at home with my family.”
Is Sam excited about expanding your family?
“Yeah, he would have many more, I’m sure.”
What’s he like as a dad?
“He’s a big kid. He and Rocket dress up in Superman outfits. He’s more of a kid than me. I’m the one who makes the dinners and things like that. He’s the joker.”
The July issue of InStyle is on sale this Thursday.
