Actress Mena Suvari, who is known for portraying the character of Heather in the "American Pie" franchise, welcomed her first born, a son named Christopher Alexander with husband Michael Hope in April. She says that becoming a mother was "wonderful and it's everything miraculous you can think of."
"But it's been challenging for me too because I personally never felt like I had that type of mother figure. So I don't know how to be that one, and I worry over it a lot. Also this is a big process for me in accepting that something so beautiful had happened for me," Suvari said, The 42-year-old actress added: "It's like the universe's next challenge for me. It's now my biggest lesson because it's interesting when you experience a lot of trauma you can become very controlling because you can establish that behaviour to feel safe. Well, having a baby, all that control just goes right out the window."
