I’m in awe of her every day. … A lot of people have warned me, [saying], ‘It’s not really the twos, it’s the threes.’ She’s very strong-willed so I know that that might come, but right now she’s incredible. She’s, like, a great hang.”

“We brought both our babies to work a lot,” the Tony Awards winner told Use at the time, referring to costar Hilary Duff, who is a mother-of-three. “Banks was there a lot and Emily came to visit three or four times a week. Emily would go, ‘Baby Banks! Baby Banks!’ and wanted to hold the baby.”

Our 🌈 baby is in my belly,” Meyers wrote via Instagram, sharing maternity photos. “For those of you who are still on your journey to parenthood, I know this news may feel painful. I know some of you may have just had another failed cycle, or found out your pregnancy wasn’t viable, or some other hiccup in this wild game they call trying to conceive. … Permission to mute me, step away or feel all of those feels. I’ve been there too.”
