Selma Blair says she has no problem with the bald truth.
The 39-year-old actress recently told People that like a lot of new moms, she’s going through hormonal changes that come in the first few months following childbirth. Her son, Arthur Saint, is four months old.
“This is so not glamorous but it’s true—I need to take longer showers so that I can collect the hair that falls out and throw it away so I don’t clog the drain,” she said. “It just started falling out at the three-month mark. And I’m not a girl who likes extensions, so Selma’s going to be bald!”
But Arthur, whose dad is fashion designer Jason Bleick, is completely worth it, Selma says.
“He rolls over now and he got a bouncy toy! It’s like the biggest moment of your life: ‘Oh my gosh, I get 10 minutes free now!’ Before he had a play mat, Mommy or Daddy or now a nanny that comes for a few hours in the daytime to hold him. But now, autonomy! He got a Fisher-Price Jumperoo. I wish I had one for every room!”
