Ali Larter is basking in mommy joy: “It’s incredible to look at this little guy and think he grew inside of me!”
Ali Larter has a new man in her life, and she’s head over heels in love! The Heroes alum, 34, gave birth to a beautiful baby boy named Theodore Hayes aka “Teddy” with her husband, Perfect Couples’ Hayes MacArthur, 33, on Dec. 20 and she’s been loving every minute of motherhood—aside from her son’s dramatic arrival! “During the L.A. mud slides, our street was closed,” Ali tells Us Weekly. “Four hours after firemen opened it, I was in labor!” And little Teddy’s delivery wasn’t much better!
“It was a comedy of errors—we forgot our suitcase in the car!” Ali confesses. “But once Teddy was born and on my chest, he latched on and nursed. All my fears disappeared.” The actress says that although her pregnancy was smooth sailing, she did pack on the pounds—45 to be exact! But she wasn’t so much concerned about fitting into her old jeans, sweats worked fine! “We are so cocooned at home,” she explains. “We eat, snuggle, take walks in our yard. I haven’t really gotten out of my pajamas yet!”
For now, Ali is adjusting to life as a first-time mom and experiencing the ups and downs of baby bliss. “When he cries, it strikes me to my core, but I realize he’s just trying to communicate,” she says. “The most surprising thing is when he pees all over me. The first time, I felt like I was initiated into the club!” (The “mommy club” that is!) But hey, Ali enjoys watching her hubby, Hayes become a daddy, too. “The other day, Teddy fell asleep on Hayes’ chest,” explains Ali. “To see my two guys—it was pure heaven to me.” We are so thrilled for Ali and Hayes and can’t wait to catch a glimpse of little Teddy!
