A glowing and growing Marcia Cross chatted exclusive with our own resident mom-to-be, Dayna Devon, Thursday night at a party thrown by Lolita Carrico’s ModernMom.com.
“She will be balancing changing diapers and nighttime feedings, as well as a successful career,” Carrico said, explaining why Marcia was the perfect choice to host the event.
The 5-month pregnant “Desperate Housewife” got candid about expecting twins, the swirling rumors claiming she’s having a rough pregnancy and her co-star, Eva Longoria’s, engagement.
Dayna Devon: I’m so sorry to bring you out on a night that's so windy and cold!
Marcia Cross: What happened? It was 80, and now it’s 20.
DD: How are you feeling about having twins?
MC: I was really freaked out, and I was terrified. What if I can’t be a good mother to two? And somebody would also be feeling left out.
DD: What kind of mom do you think you're going to be?
MC: Domestically challenged with a very big heart.
DD: What has been the best part of pregnancy?
MC: I won the lottery at my age to have two.
DD: What do you think has been the worst part of pregnancy?
MC: It’s hard to carry around all that weight. I wake up feeling like me, and then I step on the ground, and I’m like, “Whose body is that walking to the bathroom?” I don’t know that person.
DD: Speaking of the downside of pregnancy, is there any truth to the rumors that you having any complications?
MC: No, I haven't had a thing. I didn't know there were any rumors. I am absolutely, 100 percent fine.
DD: So Eva Longoria just got engaged to longtime boyfriend Tony Parker. Have you talked to her yet?
MC: I went in the makeup trailer, and she's grinning ear to ear, and I’m thinking, “What?” And she showed me her ring and I screamed. I think I scared them (her twins). Tony was there, and it was just fantastic.
DD: Well, we have some gifts for you for the babies, with the help of Stride Rite.
MC: Oh my god, this is unbelievable!
DD: Can we just rub bellies for good luck?
