Emma Heming talks parenting fears

Emma Heming Willis had some doubts before her second daughter was born.

The actress is married Die Hard star Bruce Willis and together they have two-year-old Mabel and baby Evelyn, who was born earlier this month. Emma is excited about their growing brood, but admits becoming a mother for the second time is daunting.

"I admit that I do have my worries about being a mother of two - just wondering, 'How do you do it?'" she revealed to British magazine Hello! shortly before Evelyn was born. "I feel I just got my feet underneath me with having one! But yes, I'm ready and waiting."

Emma, 35, is also stepmother to Bruce's three daughters with his ex-wife Demi Moore. Having kids together has bonded the pair even more.

"It made a huge impact on us, changed our lifestyle completely - and for the better," she gushed. "It's made our family unit stronger. I have a lot more patience. It's put my life into perspective regarding what really matters."

Emma added that she and Bruce have similar parenting styles but that she is a little stricter. Her husband isn't afraid to get his hands dirty when it comes to caring for their little ones.

"He's all hands-on. And thankfully so. I really couldn't do it without him. That's what have so much respect for single parents," she said. "My mom was a single parent. She worked three jobs to support us. I look back and think, 'How could she juggle it all and not lose her mind?' I'm so grateful to have such a dedicated dad for our [children]."
