What Julia Roberts has to Say about Motherhood

Julia Roberts recently gave birth to twins: Hazel and Phinnaeus. At 37, America's Pretty Woman couldn't be happier in her new role of motherhood.

The twins were delivered at a hospital in Southern California. Since the twin's birth Julia has done voice-over work for the remake of E.B. White's "Charlotte's Web". She is also set to work on a film for children called "Ant Bully".

Roberts has often told reporters that she'd like nine children. She claimed that pregnancy was a breeze and she certainly hasn't lost her trademark smile. Julia seems to enjoy all of life's experiences. Motherhood simply brought highlights.

Roberts says she only has one complaint: huge breasts. Julia told a reporter for the 'The Oprah Winfrey Show': "It's no laughing matter. This is the only dress brave enough to hold in my breast line." However, Julia has kept a striking figure, which she gives the credit to Pilates.

What is motherhood? Is it rocking your baby to sleep at night? Is it helping them tie their shoes? Is it introducing them to a new world? What happens when we go from womanhood to motherhood? Mothers are often encouraged to make time for themselves. However, mothers are among the few who know what happens when you make time for others. It is certainly a role that Julia Roberts plans on holding 365 days a year.
