Rose Byrne admits she is still in the new mum fog.

Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale welcomed their baby boy Rocco into the world in February and  Rose tells “I’m still in a fog,” when news.com.au spoke with her this week.

“I haven’t even left my apartment in three months.”

”It takes an hour and forty-five minutes to get out of the house with a baby, and by the time I’m ready, I’m exhausted. I’m done, I’m going back in,” she laughs. “I don’t care!

“I have a new appreciation for motherhood having just become a parent. Really, I’ve turned around a lot. It’s actually very true all the stuff that you go through, all the cliches, which is a big surprise to me,” she admits. “I’m tired, but even so, all of it’s great. But you definitely go into a cocoon.”

Rose adds – “Sleep is what makes me feel good at the moment, wherever I can squeeze it in that’s the best thing for now.”

We hear you, Rose. We totally hear you!

How did you cope for those first few months of motherhood?

  • It’s a tough time! I didn’t cook dinner for at least 3 months because it was too hard. Showering was a big achievement


  • Such an honest account of the newborn days


  • loved alone time with my newborns…but i also wanted to show them off to the world too lol…
    you are wrapped up in a bubble of love and your whole world revolves around the new baby…i miss those days


  • rings too true in this house. You love your new family bubble!


  • I didnt want to go anywhere either but I did long for someone to come and give me a hand. I would have loved it if someone had come and simply held my daughter while she screamed and allowed me to prep every thing for dinner or get my nappies in the wash for the day.


  • Congrats guys! Can totally understand not leaving home now. Why would you when everything you need is right there in front of you


  • If only most of us had the choice to stay in the we wanted to! A couple of weeks with family support then alone and doing household chores is the norm.


  • I deliberately tried to minimise commitments for a few months so I didn’t have to run around frantically.

    • It is a time when you need to do this, same here! :)


  • I was shocked at just how much work a baby is.


  • At the beginning I used to stay longer inside the house too. Slowly things changed, luckily. It will be the same for Rose and her cute little boy! :-)


  • The early days can take a lot of adjustment.
