"It makes me feel that all the things about my body are suddenly there for a reason," she says in the July issue of Vanity Fair. "It makes you feel round and supple, and to have a little life inside you is amazing."
Plus, the actress says that her partner, Brad Pitt, "finds pregnancy very sexy. So that makes me feel very sexy."
The 32-year-old – already mom to Maddox, 6; Pax, 4; Zahara, 3; and Shiloh, 2, – also says she is awed by what the human body can do. When giving birth to daughter Shiloh, "I had a C-section and I found it fascinating. I didn't find it a sacrifice and I didn't find it a painful experience," she tells the magazine. "I found it a fascinating miracle of what a body can do."
As for her child-rearing philosophy, she says that as artists she and Pitt emphasize communication and play at home. "We communicate to the point where we probably annoy our children," she says. "We have art around the house, we have books, we go to plays, we talk. Our focus is art and painting and dress-up and singing. It’s what we love."
