Actress Anne Hathaway gave birth to her first child, Jonathan Rosebanks Shulman, in March 2016.
And now, she’s making some major changes to her lifestyle to be the best mom she can, the 36-year-old said on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
The mom of one told DeGeneres that she’s decided to give up drinking — for the next 18 years at least.
Hathaway said that she hasn’t touched a drink since October 2018 and intends to keep it that way. She remarked:
“I’m going to stop drinking while my son is living in my house.”
The star said that her 2-year-old boy is now “getting to an age where he really does need me all the time, in the mornings.”
She made the decision after taking her son to school while hungover. Hathaway told the talk show host:
“I did one school run one day where I dropped him off at school — I wasn’t driving, but I was hungover. That was enough for me. I didn’t love that.”
DeGeneres joked with Hathaway:
“Another reason I don’t want kids. I’m not quittin’ drinking!”
Many parents on social media applauded Hathaway for her responsible decision, but others poked fun at the star for her choice.
Many moms chimed in to say that the mom may regret her choice. One Facebook user said:
Wait until he becomes a teenager, then you will need that alcohol!
I refuse to give things up just because I’m a mom. Everything in moderation. No need to give it up if you want a drink have one. You can still be there for your kids after a glass of wine.
Some Facebook users said that the comments about her choice could be considered mom-shaming.
