Promoting Her New Children's Book

The author and mom of two sat down for an interview with ET as she promoted her newly released children's book Good Night, Sister. Schwarzenegger detailed her life as a mom after welcoming a baby girl with Chris Pratt in May 2022.

"We are hardcore adulting here! It's been a very blessed time. I feel very lucky."

The Challenges

She discussed the challenges of raising an infant and a toddler simultaneously, and it mostly revolved around these little ones waking up more in the middle of the night and disrupting everyone's sleep patterns.

"It's wild! I mean, I think that to me the biggest adjustment has been just the sleep factor. I feel like everybody always tells me that the jump from one to two children is the biggest...but definitely in the middle of the night, when they both wake up, is when I’m just kind of like, OK, this can be a lot."
