Eva Mendes also explained why she doesn't need a nanny to help her with the little one. "Esmeralda has two amazing grandmothers and incredible aunties who come over and really help me," the actress said. "But as far as a nanny or a night nurse, for me that part of being a mother at this early stage is the struggle of not being able to sleep and not knowing what I'm doing and really going through it with her and battling out those nights."
The new mother has her ups and downs in motherhood. She explains, I do go to babycenter.com and read the comment sections from other mothers because I find so much solace in that." "Just knowing that I'm not alone out there and that other moms have gone through the same thing can at least get me through the night," Eva added.
