Celebrity Parents Katie Holmes on motherhood By Staff Author Published on February 1, 2007 02:44 PM Share Tweet Pin Email Actress Katie Holmes posed for the March cover of Harper’s Bazaar, and inside she talks Tom, Suri, 9 months, and her career. Here are the baby-related highlights. It’s a wonderful life: "I have a husband and children that I adore. I have a career that I really love. When I sit back and reflect, it’s-wow! I am very grateful." Pregnancy and birth was empowering: "I felt so proud to be having a baby and so excited. And I felt closer to other women-to my sisters, to my mom. I felt empowered, like ‘I’ve given birth. I did it! There’s nothing I can’t handle." On getting to know her daughter: "I’ve really enjoyed this time that I have taken to be with Suri as well as the challenges of the first couple of months: feeding and pumping, learning to decipher what each cry means-is she hungry? Is she tired? Does she need a fresh diaper? And figuring out how to really help her." On going back to work: "My family is very important to me. When I go to work, it will be the right thing, worth my time and worth my time away from my family." Source: USA Today Thanks to CBB reader Day. Did you also feel empowered after having given birth?
