By April Littleton

According to People, The Sons of Anarchy star Maggie Siff is expecting her first child with her husband. In an interview with musician Dave Navarro, Siff explained how she often finds it challenging to balance her career and personal life, especially when she turned down a job to go on her honeymoon. “It took a lot of strength – even though it was something I was really interested in – to say, ‘You know what, I’m going to get married and I’m going to have a honeymoon,’ and absolutely carve that out in stone,” she said. News of her pregnancy first appeared in Playbill.

How do you prepare your relationship for your first child?

Cupid’s Advice:

Starting a family with the person you love is exciting and scary at the same time. You’re not sure how your relationship with your partner will change and you’re nervous about the responsible of raising a newborn all on your own. Don’t worry, Cupid is here to help:

1. Read books: One of the best things you and your partner can do is learn about your pregnancy before the baby is born. Buy some parenthood books, so you can get familiar with your new body and the changes you’re bound to go through. Any questions you or your significant other may have should be answered with the knowledge you learn from the books.

2. Stay connected: Bringing a baby into the world is life-changing. Make sure you and your honey maintain a strong line of communication throughout your pregnancy. The time you two spend together will be limited once your child is born, so make sure you make these last couple of months together count. Make Fridays your date night, stay at home and watch movies together at least one day out of the week – do whatever the two of you will enjoy doing as long as you’re doing it as a unit.

3. Start shopping: Once you’re further along in your pregnancy, you and your partner should think about setting up the baby room together. This could be a fun project the two of you do together and you’ll both be adding in different ideas on what you think the baby would like.
