Fox: I smell foul scents
Megan Fox can detect the most pungent odours powerfully due to pregnancy.
The 27-year-old actress is carrying her second child with husband Brian Austin Green, with whom she shares 14-month-old son Noah.
And the star believes her sense of smell has heightened to an almost supernatural level recently.
“I can smell everything! I usually can smell foul scents, I pick them up from far away,” Megan told People magazine.
“[Brian's] constantly saying, ‘I don’t smell that, you are crazy, that’s not in the house,’ and I’m saying, ‘I promise you, it is somewhere.’”
Megan says she and Brian are doing everything they can to prepare Noah for his role as big brother.
But the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles leading lady isn’t naïve about how hard it may be for her son to adjust to the new arrival.
“We are trying to explain it to him and I always say, ‘The baby is going to say, “Wah, wah, wah,”’ because he is not communicating yet [so] I’m not sure how much he understands,” Megan explained.
“I know as far as everything else goes, he’s really aware. So I think he has an idea, but I don’t think he understands that a baby will be living with us all of the time — that will be an adjustment.”
Despite her anxieties, Megan has faith Noah will lovingly accept his new sibling.
She does acknowledge the little tyke might have trouble sharing the limelight with another baby.
“He loves to be the centre of attention and I also think he is a really sensitive child,” Megan said.
“I think that he’s going to be a nurturer. It’s a lot to expect, but he’s only 14 months now. I think he’s going to be an amazing big brother with time.”
Megan and Brian announced they were expecting in August. They have been married since 2010.
