Camila Alves has ‘baby brain’

Camila Alves

Matthew McConaughey’s wife Camila Alves is finding it difficult to be back at work after having her third child three months ago.

The supermodel wife of actor Matthew McConaughey is mother to their children Levi, four, Vida, three, and three-month-old son Livingston.

While promoting American department store Macy’s new I.N.C. line, the spokeswoman revealed she doesn’t feel as sharp as she used to be.

“It’s hard to be back to work with such full force early on because your brain is not fully there. You have baby brain,” she told People magazine.

“I was on [US daytime talk show] The View answering a question and halfway through, I lost my train of thought. You just laugh at it.”

Camila is trying to strike a balance between her professional duties and her responsibilities as a parent.

The 31-year-old star feels she is constantly rushing to nurse her new child.

“It’s three little ones that need mom all at the same time,” she explained. “I’m running to dinner, running back to breastfeed, go do this, run back to breastfeed, breastfeed all night, start your day at 5am, lack of sleep—all of it.”

Camila and her family currently reside in her husband Matthew’s home state of Texas, after relocating from Los Angeles in 2012.

She admits the location is perfect for her eldest offspring as they are not in the spotlight like some other famous youngsters.

“It’s great for [them] because they really get to have a regular life,” she pointed out. “People are not looking at them — they’re not impressed by anything. You go inside of a restaurant, no one’s turning their faces, looking at the door every five minutes to see who’s coming in. Everybody’s really doing their own thing.”
