Sienna Miller has given a rare glimpse into her personal life after opening up about being a working mum. The American Sniper star said being a mother to three-year-old daughter Marlowe is "incredible" but does leave her feeling "exhausted".

"Obviously when you have a baby it's the most incredible experience but your life is also catapulted into this chaos and you are exhausted," Sienna told Vogue. "I could literally get on this table and fall asleep. I'd like to be better at managing things; I'd like to be more super – although we're never going to feel it, even if we are.

Sienna Miller says being a working mum is exhausting

"That's the curse of motherhood – we just run ourselves ragged. I'm just trying to get a sense of what that guilt is. I sometimes feel like's it's a totally invented emotion. It's strange to be punishing ourselves this way. It's not healthy."

The 33-year-old also spoke about her relationship with her mum and sister Savannah, saying they are "hugely important" in her life.

"I'm really close to them, they are hugely important and influential women in my life, but of course we drive each other nuts as well!"

Sienna has a three-year-old daughter Marlowe with Tom Sturridge

As well as wearing her out, Sienna admits that motherhood has also had an impact on her style, confiding: "I don't remember the last time I went shopping. I swear to God, I wear jeans and trainers and a t-shirt most days."

Sienna doesn't often discuss her personal life and has stayed quiet following rumours that she split from her fiancé, Marlowe's father Tom Sturridge at the beginning of the summer.

The pair are said to remain "great friends" with a source suggesting to People magazine that they could reconcile in the future: "They are over, but don't rule out a reunion," the source said. "Tom wanted to get married and have more children. Sienna didn't."

The couple began dating in 2011 and got engaged the following year after announcing they were expecting their first child together.
