It’s been nearly seven months since Salma Hayek gave birth to daughter Valentina, and the actress is still shocked at how much motherhood has changed her.


“I don’t even remember what my life was like before,” Salma tells Extra. “I can tell you that I don’t sleep. This is a cliché but it’s true. I haven’t slept in the last six months."

The 41-year-old gave birth to her first child with fiancé François-Henri Pinault

on Sept. 21 and has been focused on her little bundle of joy since. It’s only now that Salma is trying to re-acclimate herself with “real life.”

“I’m trying to get back to my life,” she says. “I’m trying to remember what it was because she is so beautiful and fun and amazing. It’s hard to look anywhere else.”

She adds, "The blessing of having a healthy child, I think is the best thing that can happen to anyone."
