Now that Anne Hathaway confirmed she’s expecting her second child, the 36-year-old actress is opening up about her struggle trying to conceive.
In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Hathaway discussed her fertility issues and revealed that’s she’s been waiting a long time for baby number two. “I’m really happy,” she said. “This is something I’ve been wanting for a while, and I’m really happy it’s happening.”
While she and her husband, Adam Shulman, are thrilled about their second pregnancy, growing their family hasn’t been easy. As Hathaway noted in her joyful Instagram post, “[P]lease know it was not a straight line to either of my pregnancies.”
Acknowledging that part of her announcement with ET, she noted: “I think there is a silence around the moments before that and they are not all happy. And, in fact, a lot of them are quite painful. I think the pain is that these women feel like we’re the only ones going through it.”
