Anne Hathaway is opening up about the idea of bringing another child into the world, but says she's not so sure she wants to! While on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the award-winning actress talks about her family life. 

Mother-of-two Anne Hathaway opened up about her family life while appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this Tuesday! The award-winning actress gave birth to her son, Jack, just 11 months ago. 

While America struggles with a pandemic, social changes, and a divisive election, Hathaway talks about adding a third child to the mix - something she's not sure of at all!

Anne Hathaway isn't sure about another baby

Jimmy Kimmel and Anne Hathaway discuss family life, and the Ocean's 8 actress isn't so sure that she's wanting another baby following the birth of her second child, 11-month-old son, Jack. 

Anne Hathaway attends the 25th Annual Critics' Choice Awards.

While talking about her latest film, The Witches, Hathaway also shared what it's been like being a working mom with two kids, Jonathan, 4, and Jack. 

After Kimmel pointed out the alliteration between the two boys each beginning with "J," Hathaway teased she should go for another.

"Are you angling for me to go for a third and name him Jimmy?" she joked. 

Taking a more serious tone, Hathaway said that she unsure if she and her husband would ever try for another. 

"I don't know," she said. "The world is really scary. Some minutes, I'm like, 'Yes, absolutely,' and some minutes the world scares me too much and I think I've got two healthy ones and that feels really great. So I don't really know yet."

Adding that she's sometimes had too much on her plate balancing work life and mom life, Hathaway shared that she tells a little white lie to her oldest when she heads off to shoot.

"He knows that Mommy goes to work," she said. "I recently left to go to do a project and we were getting him ready 'cause I was gonna be gone for a little bit and I was like, 'Okay, so, Mommy's going to work.' And he stopped and he looked me really deep in my eyes and he's like, 'Mommy, are you going to work at the library?'" 

After being asked by Kimmel why he thought that, she said, "Your guess is as good as mine!"

As for whether Jonathan sees his mother on TV and recognizes her, Hathaway said they have yet to cross that bridge, although they did recently watch Rio, which Hathaway stars in as a voice actor.

"I wasn't sure where we were at with that because we showed him Rio recently and he didn't notice that one of the birds sounded like me," she said.
