Megan Fox has clearly been watching too many Twilight movies. The new mom of baby Noah admits in a new interview that she was so drained during the early days of her pregnancy that she was convinced that she was giving birth to a half-vampire baby like Bella Swan did in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 1. Watch the new mom's Leno interview here:
"It was so bad for me actually that … I was convinced that I was maybe birthing a vampire baby,” Fox tells Jay Leno on The Tonight Show. "Like the one from Twilight you know what happens to Bella, where she’s in cold sweats all the time. I felt like that was happening because I had no vitamins and nutrients I was just nauseous."
That wasn't the only tough experience that Fox, 26, had during her pregnancy. She says that she had horrible morning sickness during her first trimester and also experienced "pregnancy brain."
"I had it so bad that Brian [Austin Green] wouldn’t let me drive anymore,” she explains. "I would do things with my cell phone like I would go to get the juice out of the refrigerator and I would leave my phone … or I would be walking around the house yelling, 'Where’s my phone?' and it would be in my hand."
Even giving birth wasn't an easy experience. Fox says she was in a lot of pain and begged for an epidural before she even got to the hospital.
"I thought I was going to be tough and the nurses would be like, ‘She’s a warrior princess. She doesn’t need an epidural. She’s amazing. We’re such big fans,'" Fox remembers. “As soon as I got out of the car, I was already crying for an epidural. I was asking the security guard for an epidural.”
At least the This Is 40 star is living up her post-pregnancy life. During a recent interview with The Daily Mirror, Fox said she's loving the new addition to her family.
"Having an infant is difficult. It's a lot of work and I didn't hire any help because I overestimated my own abilities. I had no idea how difficult babies could be, so Brian and I were exhausted," she said. "You never sleep and you're awake all night and your entire life is devoted to this little thing that needs you constantly. And I love it. It's what I've wanted to do since I was a little girl."
