Sienna Miller Appreciates Her Nipples Just the Way They Are After Having Breastfed Her Daughter
Things have changed in Sienna Miller’s life ever since she became a mother, including her nipples.
Miller glows on the cover of this month’s issue of Allure, in which she gives a candid interview about motherhood and being a New Yorker. She says that her body has seen some changes after giving birth to her daughter Marlowe Sturridge in 2012.
“I do miss my breasts being where they were,” Miller tells the magazine. “And, yes, I have nipples like fighter pilots’ thumbs. But I also sort of like that they’re a little ’70s. And that they fed my kid.”
The actress shares an anecdote from the unglamorous treasure trove of parenting stories.
“I had an amazing moment the other day where I just heard this ‘Mama!’ from upstairs,” Miller says. “I said, ‘I’m coming, I’m coming.’ And as I got to the landing I just smelled, like, puke. And she’d thrown up basically off the top bunk, so the splatters were like: Pow! Like all four walls.”
Miller explains that Marlowe had “the norovirus or whatever.”
“I was like, ‘I’m coming, I’m coming!’ And I skidded on the sick and fell. Whacked my head,” she continues. Then I get her out of the bunk; she’s crying, covered in sick. I take her to the bathroom, take all her clothes off, and then the dog comes up and starts eating the sick. And I get her in the bath and in my bed, and I’m just, like, literally naked, mopping, and crying at midnight.”
“You know, and that’s parenthood. You’re so enriched by it and so fulfilled, but at the same time, I look at these people who just don’t have any responsibility, and it feels like the responsibility is crippling.”
Miller reveals that she’s been working towards quitting her habit of smoking. She’s been reading a book on and off by Allen Carr on the subject over the past nine months, and she says that she is going to “stick with it” now that she is halfway through the book.
“I had one in the last two days. I’m not a big smoker anymore, but it’s definitely a part of me,” Miller says. “Sucks. But I didn’t smoke when I was pregnant or breastfeeding.”
