Selma Blair wants to keep it real.
Just like all new moms, she’s experiencing the joys — and also the heedfulness — of the hormonal changes that come in the initial few months following childbirth.
“This is so not glamorous, but it’s true: we need to take longer showers so that we can collect the hair that falls out and chuck it divided so we don’t burden the drain. Why do actresses never speak about that?” she tells PEOPLE with a giggle before the Nov. 12 launch celebration for Gwen Stefani‘s Harajuku Mini for Target collaboration.
“It just started descending out at the three-month mark,” laments the actress, 39, whose son Arthur Saint is now 4 months old. “And I’m not a lady who likes extensions, so Selma’s going to be bald!”
All shedding aside, Blair is relishing her son’s latest milestones.
“He rolls over now,” she says of her baby child with fashion engineer beau Jason Bleick, “and he got a buoyant toy! It’s like the biggest impulse of your life: ‘Oh my gosh, we get 10 mins giveaway now!’”
“Before, he had a playmat, Mommy or Daddy or now a nanny that comes for a few hours in the daytime, to reason him. But now, autonomy! He got a Fisher-Price Jumperoo — we wish we had one for every room!”
So what does Blair try to do in that 10-minute window of freedom? There’s only one thing, of course: “Shower!”
