She's experienced childbirth twice with her sons Milo and Sailor, but Liv Tyler has admitted that the process is still daunting, especially after welcoming her younger son six weeks early in February 2015. This summer the actress and her fiancé Dave Gardner will meet their second baby.
"It's a wonderful, magic, amazing experience, but it's pretty scary – a lot of high stakes," Liv told the Evening Standard magazine.
"I nearly threw that Gina Ford [The Contented Little Baby] book out of the window. I cried," she said, adding that she needs "a lot of help" and that "it takes a village".

One person Liv can always rely on is her fiancé Dave, who she calls the "super-daddy".
"When I go away he has all of them," said the 38-year-old, explaining that she FaceTimes her children from film shoots and constantly texts her husband-to-be.

Liv and sports agent Dave, who is David Beckham's best friend, started dating in 2014 after being introduced on holiday by their close friend Kate Moss.
That September, the Lord of the Rings star confirmed her first pregnancy with Dave, and just 11 months after giving birth to their baby boy Sailor, Liv announced that she was expecting again.
The actress, whose son Milo is from her previous relationship with husband Royston Langdon, has been speaking about her pregnancy joy and admitted that she's been feeling "amazing".

Liv certainly had that pregnancy glow about during New York Fashion Week, where she attended a cocktail party with her famous dad Steven Tyler. The blue-eyed beauty subtly concealed her growing bump in a black dress that featured leather trim detailing.
