Fast and the FuriousÂ starÂ Jordana BrewsterÂ is looking forward to celebrating Mother's Day with her two youngÂ sons, a holiday that is made all the more special because of her past struggle with infertility.
JordanaÂ is the mom of seven-year-oldÂ JulianÂ and four-year-oldÂ Rowan, whom she sharesÂ with husbandÂ Andrew Form.Â She tells ABC Audio that her two boysÂ were born viaÂ gestational surrogacy.
The 40-year-old actress understands whyÂ Mother's Day may be difficult for some people andÂ advisesÂ those whoÂ willÂ struggle this Sunday toÂ "be gentle with yourself."
"Self care is really important and taking time is really important,"Â offersÂ Jordana, who recently partnered with Clearblue as part of their new #Conceivinghood campaign. "I think whatever self care means to you, if you can do that for yourself, when you know it's going to be a particularly hard day, to just be gentle with yourself."
As for how she will spend her time this weekend, the upcomingÂ F9Â star says, "I think we're just going to have a really fun and loud lunch."
Jordana says her parents and her sister, who is also the mom of two young boys, will gather under the same roof on Sunday, which she knows will "turn into chaos."
"And then my mom's like super grandma and she's corralling all of us," sheÂ says with a laugh.Â
