She wrote, “I had a beautiful childhood, teenage years I still dream about, my 20’s were insane (and mostly miserable) and my 30’s brought me lows and highs but eventually I leveled out to a place of security. Security in who I am, what I believe, and with whom I want to spend precious time. I couldn’t be more grateful to enter my 40’s with my amazing husband and son, excitedly expecting the arrival of baby boy #2.”
The star actress also shared her birthday wish asking her fans and followers to express their love and walk with more patience than before.
The couple Danielle and Jensen’s elder son Adler Lawrence Karp was born in 2019. He had a premature birth than expected, as the couple found out that there were fluids in his lungs. He was in Los Angeles Children Hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit for three weeks after he was born.
Back then, Danielle said that there is no rush in intensive care. She appeared in E!’s Daily Pop in October 2019 where she also said that her baby is dictating the staff and that is what should happen. Later in December, she shared on Good Morning America that a recent X-ray of her son’s lungs showed that the fluid is cleared.

The actress explains why she hasn’t posted her son Adler’s photographs and her experience of dealing with ‘mom guilt.’ In a statement for GMA, the actress wrote that she was dreaming of becoming a mom for as long as her memory grows.
Danielle added that she was looking forward to the sleepless nights and ‘poopy diapers.’ She added that she was so lost in her baby that she would just watch him sleep for hours. However, she continued that nothing could prepare her for the reality of being a mom also adds the feeling of not being enough.
The actress wrote that none can escape this guilt as it is always there, but there is something common for every mom – trying the best all the time.
