Home & Family star Debbie Matenopoulos says she can “sit and stare” at her newborn daughter Alexandra Kalliope “for hours.” After welcoming her first child in October, the new mom, 40, has now returned to work on Home & Family, which airs weekdays at 10 am ET/PT on the Hallmark Channel.
Debbie opens up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about the joys and challenges of motherhood, having an unplanned C-section, her baby’s traditional Greek name, and her hopes to keep breastfeeding in the first year. Continue reading our exclusive interview with Debbie, and her feelings about the “miraculous” experience of motherhood.
CBS: Congratulations on the arrival of your daughter Alexandra Kalliope! How is baby Alexandra doing? Are you getting any sleep these days?
DM: “Alexandra is doing great. She changes so much every day – it’s fascinating. I can still sit and stare at her for hours. I am still not sleeping much because she’s not sleeping through the night yet. But supposedly that is all going to change very soon. Apparently, babies start to get into a rhythm (with a little help) and they start sleeping straight through the night at around 3-4 months. I’ll keep you posted [laughs].”
CBS: How did you come up with her name? Did you and your husband have a hard time deciding on her name?
DM: “She is named after my aunt Alexandra and my great aunt Kalliope. Greeks like to keep the names in the family, so we kept with the tradition. We both love the name Kalliope, so that part was easy. The first name was more difficult for us to choose. The whole time we both were certain I was having a boy, so we really weren’t prepared with girl names. If we had a boy we were going to name him Niko after my father.”
CBS: Are you still breastfeeding? If so, how is that going? Have you enjoyed nursing? Have you been pumping?
DM: “I am still breastfeeding. I really hope to continue for a year. Nursing has been harder than I thought it would be. I have enjoyed the bonding experience between us, but it was a bumpy road there at the beginning. It was quite painful and I wasn’t producing a huge amount of milk, so I was getting frustrated. I have been pumping as well so that I can keep track of the exact ounces I am producing.”
CBS: How was the birth? Did you have a natural birth? Please share your birth story.
DM: “She was 2 weeks late and she showed no signs of wanting to come out and join us, so they had to induce me. Even after being induced, I wouldn’t dilate enough to deliver her so I had to have a C-section. It’s not how I imagined the delivery would go, but I wanted to do whatever was the safest thing for the baby.
I was told the recovery process is a little more difficult than when you have a regular birth. And it definitely hurt for weeks after, that’s for sure. But I’m all good now and I have a happy, healthy baby and that’s the most important thing.”
CBS: How is Alexandra’s mild form of baby acne coming along?
DM: “Alexandra’s mild case of baby acne is nearly gone. Apparently it can have something to do with the hormones in my breast milk that make the acne occur. Isn’t that fascinating?”
CBS: How have the first few months of motherhood been? What have been the biggest rewards of motherhood? The biggest challenges?
DM: “The first few months of motherhood have been amazing — they have been a huge learning curve for me. The whole thing is just miraculous when you sit back and think about it. Creating a life and then caring for that life is the most beautiful thing a person can do, in my opinion.
I feel so honored to be given the opportunity to be a mother, but motherhood is definitely not easy. It’s incredibly gratifying but also incredibly difficult. One of the most rewarding things for me at the moment is simply seeing her grin ear to ear when she looks at me. It melts my heart.
I’d say the most challenging part of motherhood so far is not sleeping more than 3 hours a night without waking up to feed her. Whew!! I’m tired. I’m very, very tired right now.”
CBS: Have you been keeping up with your fabulous Greek cooking these days? Or has motherhood been a bit too demanding?
DM: “Unfortunately, I really haven’t had much time to cook as much as I usually do. I’ve made a few things in the last month, but nothing like I used to. I’m sure as she starts to sleep through the night and I get more rest, I will start cooking nonstop again. I really want to instill the love of cooking in her the same way my mom did with me.”
CBS: What’s up next for you? Are you back to work, or still on a maternity leave?
DM: “I have been back at the show since the first of January. I am able to bring her to work with me sometimes so it makes it much easier. She loves being on set too.”
