Solenn Heussaff explained why she and husband Nico Bolzico haven't made love yet, nine months after she gave birth to baby Thylane.
On Friday, September 11, Solenn uploaded a vlog titled "Busting Myths as a Parenteam". In the video, she and Nico reacted to different myths about being a parent.
One statement said: "Having a baby wrecks your sex life."
Nico reacted to that by saying that husbands should be respectful and supportive of their wives' decisions.
"For me, after women give birth, it’s on them. We just need to wait as long as they need because we didn’t go through pregnancy. We support their pregnancy," he said. "They are the bosses. If they want to go back into the action, we should be ready. If they want to wait, we should be ready. If they want to try and then they stop, we should be ready. If they want to go in a different direction from before, we should be ready."
Solenn then shared that it's her cesarean section delivery of their daughter Thylane that is making her "scared" until now.
"Personally, that was a C-section. I don’t know if that was just subconsciously in my head, but we are chopped down there from nine different layers. So I’m still a little bit scared and I’m not yet ready, to be quite honest. I know, it’s been a while," she said.
The "Da Possessed" actress continued, "I know some moms are like ‘What the?’ But that’s the truth."
Nico added, "I’m ready. I’m waiting. And I’m not in a rush."
The couple also talked about how having a child changes your life, in a good way.
Solenn said, "Having a kid does not ruin your life. It just adds a different branch. I have learned so much being a mom. I have learned a new side of me that I didn’t know before whom I love. I can’t remember life without my child. I’m the happiest I could be right now because of my child."
Nico, who is an Argentine businessman, believes that having children makes you a better person.
He shared, "It doesn’t ruin your life. It makes your life a thousand times better. I mean we’re enjoying life in a way at the level we never did before having Thylane. And I think the most important is like having a child also makes you a better person. It makes you more humble, it makes you shift priorities."
