During her November 16 appearance on "The Morning Show," Agruma discussed her relationship with Wilson, months after the "Pitch Perfect" star publicly announced on Instagram that they were an item.

Reflecting on the journey so far, "The Wall" actress stated that the early days of their relationship were tough due to the overwhelming attention that came from the media.

"It was shocking at the beginning and hard because I'm not used to so much attention," Agruma said on the daytime show, per E! News, before adding, "I'm more private, more homebody."

She then narrated their encounters with paparazzi saying, "Sometimes it happens moon the hiking trail, sometimes looking horrible and going to the grocery store or grabbing protein shake."

"You start thinking about someone else instead of yourself," she said, per E! News, before describing the experience as "life-changing, in a good way."

She also provided insight into how the arrival of the child had altered her priorities and way of life.

Agruma added, "Priorities change, when you think like, 'Oh I wish I would go have a massage or something'. Like no, I just want to spend time with her and be at home."

'She's A Beautiful Miracle'

Agruma's interview comes after Wilson announced the birth of their child on Instagram. At the time, she posted a cute photo of the child sleeping on a wool-like blanket alongside an emotional statement, voicing her joy about being a first-time mom.

"I can't even describe the love I have for her, she's a beautiful miracle! I am forever grateful to everyone who has been involved, "Wilson wrote in her post.

She added, "I am ready to give little Roycie all the love imaginable. I am learning quickly…much respect to all the Mums out there! Proud to be in your club."

The comedian also specially thanked her surrogate for her efforts and personal care all through the pregnancy period, saying, "Thank you for helping me start my own family, it's an amazing gift. The BEST gift!!"
