Natalia just gave an interview where she is talking about her motherhood and the quarantine.
Natalia was invited after a long time for an interview at Telefe, because of it’s 30th anniversary. Of course Muñeca Brava was the big topic!
Nati gave an extensive note from her home in the first episode of Juntos Podemos Lograrlo, with Santiago del Moro. She reviewed her career, spoke about her 19-year relationship with Ricardo Mollo and told how she lives motherhood during quarantine.
“Did you see yourself married and with children?” Asked del Moro.
“No, not even on hooks! In fact I always respected the women who have that dream a lot, but it was not something I felt. I was always in love with love, very romantic and idealized relationships.”
she said, adding that
“when they asked me when I was going to have children, I said ‘how much pressure.’ Today it is more natural for women to decide their times, luckily the world is changing a lot in that sense.”
Natalia pointed out that the quarantine allowed her to get much closer to her son, Atahualpa. To whom she tells the truth about what happens in the world with the coronavirus pandemic, but without giving him excessive information to avoid distress.
“He is a boy who loves to travel, with which he accompanies me a lot, but when I travel it is for work so I don’t always have the time and the desire to dedicate him. When you work a lot, you arrive very tired and it is an excuse, but it is the reality.”
said the singer in relation to the tours she makes in various parts of the world.
Nati tells that for this reason, the quarantine allowed her to live other times with her little one:
“It is a good situation to look at each other, get to know each other, have fun, listen to each other … I am lucky that my son tells me everything that happens to him. For now he is a child who can clearly express his emotions: if he is happy, if something hurts, why it hurts, if it bothers him, and he is very respectful. It is good because the bond is very healthy. Yesterday I listened to him talk to one of his friends and I think that for them, social distance must be very hard, because I don’t think there are many boys who are dying to do homework, but what most happens to them is not seeing their friends.”
related the actress of her eight-year-old son.
Regarding to her role as a mother, Natalia defined herself as “overprotective” and said that it is something that she is “learning” not to be:
“It is an everyday job, not from now. I feel like being a mother is having your heart outside your body. Wherever I am, I’m thinking if he ate, if he bathed, if he brushed his teeth, if he lay down to sleep, if it’s cold … I am one of those who overcoats them, and he always says ‘mom, I’m hot’.”
“We made the decision to stay home a week before quarantine was made mandatory. When all this happens, because it is going to happen… you have to think about it. It is going to happen, because sometimes one gets anguished … I had two weeks ago days of crying that I thought ‘why am I crying?’ Well, for everything that is happening.”
And she talked about how she will handle her overprotection with her son when social isolation ends and everything returns to normal:
“I don’t want to think about it all my life, because it makes me so anxious that I’m going to go with the jar of desinfection gel and I’m going to throw it like this all the time.”
On the other hand, she mentioned that it was important for her to take care of herself of body and mind to get out of this situation:
“I feel that it is important to be strong with food, your immune system works with what you eat and what you think. So I think that all this must be worked on. What enters our body, what it thinks, what messages we let in, what message not, joy and perhaps it sounds a bit naive but I feel that at this moment. It is a time to rethink certain patterns that people have that we do not take care of ourselves as we should, we worry about unnecessary things.”
And she added:
“At this moment we realize that we need very little to live. We want to be with our family, go for a walk and sometimes you worry about absolutely unnecessary things, so it seems to me that this is the good thing that we can learn.”
