Emily Ratajkowski is pregnant: the interview
In her interview the model admitted that when she and her husband told friends that she was pregnant, their first question after the congratulations was “do you know what you want?”. She said: “We like to respond that we won’t know the gender until our child is 18 and that they’ll let us know then. Everyone laughs at this. There is a truth to our line, though, one that hints at possibilities that are much more complex than whatever genitalia our child might be born with: the truth that we ultimately have no idea who -rather than what- is growing inside my belly.” And she continued: “Who will this person be? What kind of person will we become parents to? How will they change our lives and who we are? This is a wondrous and terrifying concept, one that renders us both helpless and humbled.”

So, in an interview without veils, the model revealed all her feelings and also her fears over having either a daughter or a son. Infact, Emily explained that when she was young she imagined herself as mother of a little girl, a smaller version of her self. When she shared this thought with her therapist, she found that her wish was the same as that of many other people, because it is common for people to want to relive their childhood with their children. Moreover, also the Sebastian’s opinion made her reflect, because he told her: “I do worry a girl will have a lot to live up to as your daughter.”
Emily exposed her fears also over having a boy: “I’m scared of having a son too, although not in the same way.” The model explained that she had some traumatized experiences with many white men and boys too. She said: “It’s shocking to realize how early young boys gain a sense of entitlement – to girls’ bodies and to the world in general.” At the end of the interview, the model admitted her greatest fear about it: “I’m terrified of inadvertently cultivating the carelessness and the lack of awareness that are so convenient for men.”
