Motherhood makes the heart grow fonder, according to Grey’s Anatomy star, Eric Dane who welcomed baby Billie Beatrice into the world last year with wife Rebecca Gayheart.  “I don’t know if there’s any change more significant that a human being can make than that of a woman becoming a mother.  There’s no change more dramatic,” Dane told People.  “You know, I’m a hundred times more attracted to her now and I love her exponentially more than I did before.  It’s just great to see her be a mother.”  Dane explained by saying he loves that his wife is a “hands on” mother even though the couple does have a little bit of help raising the 14-month-old.  “There’s not a lot that goes on that she’s not a part of.”

What are some ways your relationship changes after you have a child?

Cupid’s Advice:

A baby can truly change everything in a relationship and make it more remarkable than it already was.  Cupid has some important ways:

1. Makes you closer: Raising a child is not an easy task, and sharing the responsibilities of caring for the baby brings any couple closer together.  Whether it’s who is going to change diapers while the other one makes bottles, teamwork is a necessity.

2. Makes life fun: Bringing a child into this world that’s yours is a magnificent thing, and who wouldn’t want to have the love and affection you receive from your own baby every single day?  It makes life fun, exciting and worthwhile.

3. Makes life occasionally stressful: Having a child is a big responsibility because between working and raising a child, you may sometimes feel you no longer have time for your significant other. No need to worry though!  You’ve now entered a new chapter in your life, which may not be the honeymoon stage, but it’s the beginning of something great.
