Sienna Miller 'loved' giving birth

Friday November 30, 2012

Actress Sienna Miller has declared that she would go through the day she gave birth "a million times again".

The film star gave birth to her first child and daughter Marlowe in July, and said that she enjoyed the experience of labour and childbirth.

"It's the best, the greatest thing in the world... I would do that day a million times again. I would do that day, every day. I loved it."

Sharing the experience with fiancé Tom Sturridge, Sienna said that she was in awe of the power of the human body.

"It's still the most surreal thing, that you can create, that I grew this life inside my stomach, her eyeballs, everything - every little fibre," said the 30-year-old.

"And I'd expected that she'd be this extension of me and I'd instantly understand who she was because she'd come from me, and then you realise that they are their own people entirely. Very connected to you, of course. But they're their own person."

Since Sienna gave birth, she has also learnt to view her body in a more positive light.

"It's not mine - all the attachment to its flaws or any aesthetic attachment is gone," she explained. "You understand what breasts are for; and I have such enormous respect for my body because of what it can do."
