Jordana Brewster: Motherhood has made me a 'hypochondriac'

Jordana Brewster thinks motherhood has turned her into a "hypochondriac".

The 33-year-old actress is currently filming her hit show 'Dallas', but she admits she rarely takes her six-month-old son Julian - whom she welcomed via surrogate - to the set with her because becoming a parent has made her more aware of the potential dangers.

She said: "I didn't realise I'd be such a hypochondriac as a mum. It's flu season in Texas, so I haven't taken him out that much on set. "But we've been travelling back and forth a lot. He's a really good traveller."

Despite her busy schedule, the brunette beauty insists she still gets to watch the tiny tot grow and adapt to new things. She explained: "This [six months old] is my favourite age, of course, because he's responding so much."

She added: "He's rolling over. He's smiling. He's laughing." However, Jordana - who is married to film producer Andrew Form - finds juggling her busy schedule and caring for her new baby tiring, so she's got into the habit of going to bed early.

She told Wonderwall magazine: "I'm such a nerd, especially now that I have a baby. I'm in bed by 9 pm. I'm not kidding. By 7 [am.] when I'm getting my make-up done, I need to get the energy up. I usually need an espresso shot."
