Late last year, Freida Pinto gave birth to her first child with her husband Cory Tran. Now, in a new interview, she is talking openly about Rumi-Ray, her infant.
In addition to discussing her newest film, Mr. Malcolm’s List, Freida also made her first remarks about becoming a new mother.
She referred to both her work as a filmmaker and her role as a new mother, saying, “That is probably the busiest I’ve ever been.”
Freida continued, “I’ve been in this field for fifteen years, but my God, I’m pregnant. Juggling has been prevalent. There have been many times when I have felt extremely worn out, like the kind of exhaustion I thought I understood when I was doing night shoots. And I respond, “No, having a baby is an exhaustion.”
She also says “It’s also very, really fulfilling at the same time. Like when you’re raising a film, which is also your child, you get so excited with every tiny accomplishment and believe that all of your efforts—including staying up late, skipping sleep, and other such activities—have paid off.”
Being Rumi-mother Ray is one of the best parts I have ever had, in my opinion.
Before Rumi-Ray arrived, Freida disclosed that she and Cory had truly eloped.
