It’s been a pretty rough pregnancy, physically, for GENERAL HOSPITAL star Emme Rylan (Lulu), but the beauty counts this one as her best yet. “You know those dumb, silly things that scare the crap out of you when it’s your first?” she grins. “All the questions about breastfeeding vs. formula, natural diapers vs. cloth diapers — forget about it! This time, I’m not scared or overthinking things.”
Rylan has two sons, Jackson and Levi, with partner Don Money, and being a seasoned mom has also come in handy when faced with scary — or insulting — advice. “I get amazing advice from my friends, but strangers say the weirdest things,” reveals the GH actress. “My Starbucks guy told me I needed to prepare myself for the fact that I wouldn’t be looking good once the baby came. Could you imagine any circumstance in which you would tell a human being that?
“Or my personal favorite: ‘Your life is never going to be the same,’” Rylan adds. “What does that mean? Panic and fear! Panic and fear! But not this time. There’s so much freedom. We just get to enjoy it.”
Rylan has been documenting her growing baby bump on Instagram, and you can see some of her fun and clever photos in the special gallery below!
