Many fans related to Eva's parenting confession

"The summers that I loved as a kid, and what I remember, [were when I] was doing nothing, right? I grew up in LA, so we'd just be bored, and then the heat," she continued, adding that the boredom would make her "miss" being in school.

Sharing a clip of the interview on Instagram, Eva wrote: "My summer plans for my kids? I'm bringing boredom back! I'll let you know how it goes…."

Many of her fans were heavily in agreement with her sentiments, with one replying: "I understood 1000% Let's lay on the itchy grass and explore our minds." Another added: "Yep! Bored and the heat! Yes, the world is so busy and so much going on! Bring back boredom!"

"I never wanted babies before until I fell in love with Ryan," she told People. "And it kind of worked out to where I was 40 and having my first baby."
