She says, "For instance, with the VIOLET GREY photo shoot, I thought, 'Is this something that she’s going to be proud of?' The idea that I would ever embarrass her is really heartbreaking for me."
While motherhood is not easy, Mendes also recognizes that being a baby might be even more of a struggle.
"I've learned that it's way harder to be a baby. Everything is a struggle for her," Eva says of baby Esmerelda. "For instance, I haven't thrown up since the '90s and she's thrown up twice since we started this interview. Motherhood is cake compared to what it's like to be a baby."
