Life for Liv Tyler is never boring. “I go through phases,” she tells Times Online of her acting gigs. In recent years, those same phases have been a bit sidelined as Liv has been busy: the 31-year-old welcomed her first child, son Milo William back in 2004. “When I got married and I had Milo, I wanted to nest and have a family in a way that I’d always dreamt of doing,” she explains.

Enjoying her life as she finds a balance in being a hands-on working mom, Liv starts off each morning in the company of her little boy. With an early bird in the house, Liv laughs that she is in no need of an alarm clock! “Milo wakes up every morning at 5:30 or 6 — ping! — and so the hardest thing is the lack of sleep,” she says.

Although she makes an effort to be in bed before midnight in order to catch at least six hours of sleep, the tired mama still tries to squeeze in a few extra minutes come morning before heading to the kitchen to make breakfast.

As the day goes on, the morning routine doesn’t become any easier — after breakfast comes the dreaded preschool run. With paparazzi lurking outside Milo’s school on a daily basis, Liv often finds it difficult to keep her attention focused on the broader picture and can’t help but question her casual, morning ensembles: a coat thrown over her pajamas. “It’s so hard because I don’t want to think about what I’m wearing when I’m taking him to school,” she says. “I want to get him to school safely, then do whatever I have to do.”

Milo, 4, is Liv’s son with estranged husband Royston Langdon.
