She said that she asked herself: "Did she eat? Is she tired? What time is it? When was the last time she ate? When did she nap? You just kind of start there, and you go, 'What just happened? Is there something she's trying to communicate to me?'"

Not that she doesn't ever lose her cool! Cameron admitted: "You know what's also really imperative, is to repair. Like if you do blow up, just to repair that and say, 'Oh my God, mommy lost her [expletive]' And, 'I didn't mean to say that to you. If I hurt your feelings or if I upset you, I just want you to know that mommy's human too.'"

Cameron is no longer in acting and focuses on her wine business instead

At the time, they shared a statement which read: "While we are overjoyed to share this news, we also feel a strong instinct to protect our little one's privacy. So we won't be posting pictures or sharing any more details, other than the fact that she is really really cute!!"
