In case you missed it, Rachel McAdams is a mom. The Hollywood actress and her beau, Jamie Linden, welcomed a son back in April. Though she's pretty hush about her personal life, it seems we're getting a glimpse into her world as a mom. Recently, Rachel McAdams opened up about motherhood for the first time and why she "waited a long time" to become a mom.

  • As Rachel says, being a mom is "the greatest thing that's ever happened" to her.

    "[People say] your life is not your own any more," the new mom told The Sunday Times about having a baby at 39, Today reports.

    "But I had 39 years of me, I was sick of me, I was so happy to put the focus on some other person. I waited a long time [for motherhood] ... It's just how it happened. And I didn't want to do it before it was the right time."

  • We'll likely never get to see Rachel's now 7-month-old baby boy, but TBH, that's okay -- because that's what his mom wants.

    "I want to keep his life private, even if mine isn't," she revealed during her interview. 

    (Given the craziness of Hollywood, we can only imagine.)

  • Still, the newly 40-year-old is soaking up every ounce of time she spends with her little one.

    "I'm having more fun being a mum than I've ever had," Rachel revealed. "Everything about it is interesting and exciting and inspiring to me. Even the tough days -- there's something delightful about them."

  • We're so happy for her!
