Alicia Silverstone, who is well known for her role in the film Clueless, recently admitted that she and her son Bear, who is 11 years old, continue to sleep in the same bed.
The actress, who is 45 years old, was speaking about her parenting strategies on a podcast that was released not too long ago. The programme included issues such as vegan diets and sleep rituals.
Alicia opened up about how she is raising her son Bear, whom she shares with her ex-husband Christopher Jarecki, and stated that she and her child “still sleep together.” Bear is Alicia’s son from her previous marriage to Christopher Jarecki.
During an appearance on The Ellen Fisher Podcast, Alicia revealed that when it comes to the way that she raised her children, she was simply “following nature.”
“I’m a natural mama, and I’m a loving mama.
I have faith in both love and nature, but unfortunately, our culture is terrified of both love and nature.
“If you were in any kind of wild situation where there are animals, and you placed your infant over there, your baby is going to get eaten. Period.”
It would be best if the infant didn’t have to be over there.”
The icon of the 1990s admitted that she will definitely “get in problems” with some mum-shamers for her unconventional parenting strategies, but she added, “I don’t really care.”
Later on in the conversation, Alicia said that she had made the decision not to have any more children after Bear in order to “savour every moment” she spent with her son. Bear was her only kid.
She explained, “I wanted to have more, but then my relationship got messed up, and it wasn’t a great time to bring one in.” “I wanted to have more,” she said. “But then my relationship got messed up.”
“I was so head over heels in love with my Bear that I didn’t want to have another one straight immediately.”
After 13 years of marriage, Alicia and her now-ex-husband Christopher decided to end their union in 2018.
In spite of the fact that they are no longer together, the couple has assured everyone that they are successfully co-parenting their child.
Alicia has discussed the manner in which she raises her son in past interviews. In one of those interviews, she disclosed that she would sometimes ‘bird feed’ Bear, which means that she would chew food in her own mouth before giving it to him to eat. This practise occurred in 2012.
In the year 2020, Alicia disclosed the fact that she and Bear share showers and baths.
