Sienna Miller: Motherhood is surreal

Sienna Miller says motherhood is "surreal".

The actress gave birth to daughter Marlowe in July and has been discussing how her life has changed. Sienna loves spending time with her baby and is fascinated with everything about her.

"It's still the most surreal thing, that you can create, that I grew this life inside my stomach, her eyeballs, everything - every little fibre," she told the latest issue of Harper's Bazaar. "And I'd expected that she'd be this extension of me and I'd instantly understand who she was because she'd come from me, and then you realise that they are their own people entirely. Very connected to you, of course. But they're their own person."

The 30-year-old beauty went on to reveal she can't wait to expand her brood with fiancé Tom Sturridge.

Sienna doesn't even feel worried at the prospect of going through labour again and explains that motherhood has given her a new appreciation for her body.

"It's the best, the greatest thing in the world... I would do that day a million times again. I would do that day, every day. I loved it," she beamed. "[My body] is not mine - all the attachment to its flaws or any aesthetic attachment is gone. You understand what breasts are for; and I have such enormous respect for my body because of what it can do."

The actress has been sharing parenting duties with Tom, as they wanted to spend every moment possible with Marlowe. However, she accepts that she will need to get some help soon to cope with her hectic career.

"It's just been the three of us, which was amazing, and exhausting," she added. "We are going to get a nanny, but it felt important to first learn for myself who I was as a parent."
