"I've truly never been alone with a kid," she said.

"I don't think I've changed a diaper.

"I'm a worrier and he's very laid back. I like to ask him little questions like 'What would you do if our kid is 16 or 17, and we're at dinner celebrating and having wine. Would you let him have some wine?'

"And he's like, 'Yeah'. And I'm like 'I don't know if I would!' I am the crazier one in the relationship and he's more relaxed for sure.

"I think I'll be pregnant all through my 30s. I've always pictured everyone around the table for the holidays."

The 30-year-old recently sparked controversy after revealing they chose to have a daughter when they were offered the chance to pick the sex of their first child during their in vitro fertilisation process.

Chrissy initially said she wanted to give her husband a little girl because he "deserves" the close bond daughters typically share with their dads, but later admitted she didn't expect such a backlash when talking about the gender decision publicly.

"I think I didn't realise this is so not really talked about," she recently told U.S. breakfast show Good Morning America. "In my world it is, because everyone I know is going through this (IVF), so I said it so casually that I didn't anticipate all the people who'd never heard such a thing before."
