Anne Hathaway has opened up about being a new mum and her pregnancy, calling it a "joyful and sacred" experience.

The Oscar-winning actress revealed that she missed the beginning of her latest flick, Alice Through the Looking Glass, as she was focused on feeding her baby son, Jonathan.

During an interview with Good Morning America, she said: "I'm sorry. I am a new mother and I didn't time the feeding schedule—well, like I have any control over it."


Anne revealed her pregnancy news on Instagram

"My kid was hungry, I had to feed him, I missed the first 20 minutes so I can't tell you about the beginning of the movie."

The star also spoke about her pregnancy, admitting that she hadn't intended to announce her pregnancy to the public until she realised the news would be leaked. She said: "I hadn't planned on ever confirming it and then I just, I had seen a photographer while I was on vacation, taking a photo, and I just thought, 'It's such a joyful and a sacred experience, you know, carrying life.'

"I just thought, 'I don't want the first version of this to be out there with me covering or scowling at someone.' You know, that's not representative of the experience, so I chose a photo that I was happy with, and I put it out there."

At the time, Anne released a photo of herself with a baby bump on Instagram, captioning the photo: "Happy 2016 to my beautiful Instafriends! So, posting a bikini pic is a little out of character for me, but just now while I was at the beach I noticed I was being photographed.

"I figure if this kind of photo is going to be out in the world it should at least be an image that makes me happy (and be one that was taken with my consent. And with a filter). Wishing you love, light and blessings for the year ahead! Annie."
