"I go to bed early and wake up early, and he wants to go to bed late and wake up later," Cameron said of her husband.

"That works so well for us as parents. I can go to bed a few hours earlier and he does those later feeds. Then I can go to bed and I wake up early and am with [our daughter, Raddix], early in the morning so he can sleep."

"There's a reason opposites attract. We need each other and the people who stay up late at night to tend to the fire to keep everybody warm and make sure there's no danger coming around us."

The There's Something About Mary star continued: "The people during the day, like, do the foraging and gathering and bring it all together. They hold down the fort."
