Not exempted from the thrilling feeling is Bailon! Per Hollywood Life, the tv personality revealed during an exclusive interview that the birth of her child awoke a new feeling in her.

She said, “I didn't know that I could love at this capacity. We planned for this for over six years to have a child, and I just had no idea — as much as I thought I love him even before he was born, he got here, and you're just like, ‘wow.’ It’s heart bursting.”

The “Playas Gon’ Play” singer went on to admit that motherhood changes one's perspective on life in general. In her words, “It just makes you look at life differently. It’s changed me in so many ways.”

She further added that becoming a mum has made her start doing the impossible. Revealing that in the past, she used to be someone who needed a full night's rest to function. But that has changed.
