Molly Sims Reveals How Her Daughter's Tendencies to Get Naked All the Time Are 'Payback' for Her Own Childhood

Actress and model Molly Sims tells PEOPLE that she has "that's my kid" moments because her daughter Scarlett can't seem to keep her clothes on

The emperor has no clothes — oh wait, that’s Molly Sims‘ 2½-year-old daughter!

The actress and model tells PEOPLE she has “that’s my kid” moments because her little girl Scarlett May can’t seem to keep her clothes on — and when she was Scarlett’s age, Sims couldn’t either.

“It’s so funny because my mom used to say this about me, that I could never keep my clothes on,” Sims, 44, says in a Celeb Parents Get Real segment. “[Scarlett] is constantly naked.”

“She answered the door … butt naked,” adds the mother of three. “And I think it’s payback.”

Sims, who also has two sons — Grey Douglas, 8 months, and Brooks Alan, 5, with husband Scott Stuber — goes on to say that “there were many times over many pregnancies that I almost lost it.”

“I think this pregnancy with Grey was the hardest. I was so sick,” Sims explains, describing a memorable trip into N.Y.C. on the Long Island Expressway. “I was like, ‘You’ve got to pull over’ and I was vomiting on the side of the road because I was so sick. I was so nauseous.”

Asked whether there was one parenting moment she would redo, Sims answers she wouldn’t have put so much pressure on her oldest son Brooks to be potty trained so early.

“I did jelly beans, I did sticker charts, I did toys — I can’t believe I’m admitting this, but yes, I bribed,” Sims says. “Someone said to me, ‘When they’re ready, they’re ready.’ The day he was ready, he didn’t need a Batman toy.”

Sims also brings up her involvement with LiveHealth Online, a service that’s “basically like a doctor in your pocket” for the many health issues that women face postpartum.

“So many women go through pregnancy … they’re taken care of and their baby’s taken care of and [then] you have the baby and you realize that, ‘Wait a second, no one’s taking care of me,’ ” she says, adding that it’s “a community of support that I think we all need.”
