Diane Kruger is on the cover of this week’s issue of PorterEdit; in it, she discusses being a new parent to a baby girl with boyfriend Norman Reedus.
“[Norman] is so calm, and he teaches me a lot because he’s done it before,” Kruger says of Reedus, who has a 19-year-old son from a previous relationship. “There’s definitely something to be said for being with someone who is doing it for the second time.”
The 42-year-old actress also talks about having a baby at her age.
“I think, as you grow older, you learn that things come to you when you’re ready for them,” she says. “I’m glad I waited [to have a baby].”
As for her decision to finally jump into being a parent, Kruger adds, “I didn’t think I wanted children for a long time. I was too selfish. But by the time I got to about 35, I thought, Yes, I probably do want one. But then you have to wait for the right person to come along.”
